NUMBER 33 OAKLEY. CASSIA COUNTY, IDAHO, THURSDAY VOLUME 9. Thanksgiving. day. This is thanksgivin Time was when this was con sidered one of the grandest holi It is a dis ■ day in all the year, tinctly Ante ican holiday and if it could < nly be enjoyed in the same good old spirit in which it origi nated it would be i potent factor in the making of better American citizens. The day had its begin ing in that first autumn, when the Pilgrin Forefathers had man ifested, under the blessings ol God, that the cold, rocky barren coasts of New England, would yield sustenance and nourish ment to an exiled race, who only desired a place of refuge where they mighUworship their God in peace and safety, and where they mightYearjtheir children unmo lested" in the faith which tl y cherished more than lit. itsrir. Their crops that year had not been plenteous, their provisons for the winter were scant, but they more then cmnpen -cl .or by the gratitude and these, thankfulness they felt to their God who had preserved them and who had jplanted them in a land where ,they might worship Him in peace and security. 1 o their appreciation to Him, and to give expression to their gratitude they set snow overflowing apart the day in the which, they 11 to have their fill of what were a the earth had to oiler, and to unite in song and praise and thanksgiving for his abundant mercies, Tile good husbands went out into the woods and shot wild turkeys and gathered wild cran berries and nuts supplemented by the few veget ables they had been able to raise and these ,—and especially by the good old pumpkin pies the like of which have never been equalled since our grandmothers left good old New England—made a repast that was so splendid that it has been annually commemorated To-day we all sit to heavilv laden table, ever since. down with tlieirturkey and cranberries and pumpkin pies good old Eng lish puddings etcete, todo honor ■to that beautiful and time-worn custom; and as we do so, may our hearts well up with that same gratitude or with a grati tude as kindred to that as is possible—with which our lore fathers, nearly300 years ago sat down to their first Thanksgiving and may we exerce . ^the same love and taitli in God and His ahundand mercies as was man ifested in their acts and lives. The Gambler. There is no other individual that is so utterlv worthless as The the professional gambler, man who makes it his business to filch from others their hard rued means without giving ea them any thing in return is an absolute dead weight on a com-' munity, lie is a parasite that lives and thrives in luxury on the revenues that he diverts from their natural channels. He appropriates the property of others to his own use without giving any thing in return. The gambler is entirely selfish and plays uyon the weaknssess of his tellows to gratify his own coveteousness. There is no legitimate place for one that fellows such a life in the industrial life of it city or state. He is a block in the wheel of social development: a poison that endangers the social life of a community. Hejbreeds discontent, unrest, and unnat ural excitement among all that touches his life. Where—ever the gambler of healthy flourishes, the religious hie the people is nor in a state, and there is moral disease and of are ; danger sickness, Virtue, integriy and honor, never found around the gambl-j In the atmosphere of ( and crime j ing table. his business, vice originate, and charactei ai ruined. No good ever came from such a place. Let all be ware the bli,lit of til gambler's deadly touch.—Current Jounal. Theodore Roosevelt. Among other things, the Ameri can Nation should be gratiful and thankful to-day—Thanks giving Day—for the great and good man who stands at the head of our government. We be lieve that the nation at large does appreciate tins spirit as no other President since* Washing tonhas been appreciated' master tCbanhegiring By E lith Livingst me Smith. Thanks be Thee, 0 God! Not that 'Thou set the darkened sky with tight Of countless stars, framed in solemnity — But that some soul who suffers in the night Sees one star thru the window's little pane / ■, y that gleam of hope, first prays to Thee Thanks be to Thee , 0 God! throbbing music which the world's voice thrills; Bat most for melody which sings alone — The bird in deepest wood—or song that stills A child to sleep, for from the grand refrain Of fund's great chorus , chanting tunes well known Thanks be to Thee, 0 God ! For wondrous beauty which Thou gave the earth. But most for loveliness in barren sod: A green spot in the parched grass—the birth Of some pure, saintly life not tired in rain In haunts of wickedness which know not God. Thanks be to Thee 0 God! For autumn harvest, men hare foiled to reap; For tore, for home, for laughter thru our tears. But most of alt for seeds, which, in the sleep Of winter, wait for sun and spring time rains, Holding potential growth for coming years. His during his tenure of office, moral courage, his firmness his strenuosity have appealed to all classes, and he has not only sur passed, in wisdom and in exccii tive ability the fondest and most sanguine hopes of his friends but he has satisfied the enemy—his : ! political opponents. The strenuosity of his executive life is partly shown in the follow ing extract tak&i from Goodwins Since he became president the | chief magistrate has tried about everything. He has bearded wolves and bears and catamount in their lairs; he has climbed the glaciers of Colorado, taken a dip; under the sea in a submarine boat, bluffed the. yellow fever in New Orleans; been in a collision Mississippi and faced an Atlantic gale off Hat seem j Week li in the lower taras. There does not much left for him except a bal We did not mention his tustle j with the trusts and railroads, j but he is holding his own with j them, and that really tests the fibre of a man more than either : wolf or bear hunting. The leg- i ends say that a famous hydra ! of old had many heads; that severed another loon excursion. when one was sprang up in its place and the hvdra was the world's error But Hercules was notdiseourag Ile did not try to cut off ; heads but proceeded to smash ed. them with his club, and he did ( the monster up. It was pro j bably front that history that Mr. Roosevelt got the idea of the efficacy of "the big stick." May he be prospered in his intentions to reduce things to a square deal. In other lines lie has done prettv well. He brought the great coal strike to an adjust ment: lie was the urgent power behind the men who pushed .through the reclamation bill; he was a little Providence to both Russia and Japan, when both were about licked but too proud* to meet each other half way and make an honorable treaty. For that his name is as well knwn in Europe and the Orient as in our own land; better known than that of any other president, not excepting Washington, and his acts have £ ivcn ncw prestige to our republic. In sporting par lance "he has been playing in the biggest kind of luck" ever since : he became president. The secret ! is that first he is honest and second, he is not afraid. He has reached the highest place in his country's gift a higher place than any other land could give, | he is not planning now for honors, and is free to follow all the high and generous instincts of his nature. The result is that instead of being exalting by the office that he holds he exalts the office. Because of him thou sands o f men and women in the south, who have held tb e north and the government hi bitterness for forty years are feeling that j bitterness melting from their He has visited ne w hearts. every region of the country except j Alaska; he is at home alike with j broncho-busters and university I j professors, at a wolf hunt or in making a speech in a Sunday : school;in addressing a ministerial i association or shoveling coal in ! the hold of a steamer, in a cab inet meeting or on the bridge of a battle ship faced a northeast hurricane on the stormy f" Atlantic. Ifhcis not the great est of men he has more kinds of; greatness than any other man, and bring out every faculty of his mind with more inline? then any other man. lie is a model man for t youth of the country to pattern 2.1^«« in the schools being finished, he determined to go to Jthe frontier and to live and learn how the poor and the unlearned go about making a livelihood, way he learned more of his coun try and his countrymen than he would ever have learned had he remained at home or gone to Europe. May he be long spared to his country. In that Anti! Anti! During the past two or three weeks there lias been some very vigorous talk in the stake taber nacle on the subject of the "Word of Wisdom" and especially as this refers to the use of tobacco, spirtuous liquors, tea and coffee. We endorse all that has been said on these subjects, for their pur pose and object has been the reformation of our boys and men, and to cheek these evils, which seem to be increasing in our midst. The "Word of Wis dom" is not only for Latter Day Saints but it is for all the world, and if every creed, organ ization, sects, and society in our land would take it up and advo cate it, as we believe all can conscienteously do, and wage a determined and vigorous war fare against those things which are sapping the very life of the young, and undermining their characters, that much good could be accomplished, and that the world would be much better. We sincerely hope the effort that is to be made here at home to stamp out the cigarette habit will bear good fruits. It is one of the worst habits that a young man can form. Of all forms ot slavery, it is the worst, user becomes an absolute slave The to the nasty "vile" cigarette,and his power and influence for good in the community are on the He who has no higher master than the cigarette, can not possibly become a leader among a very high order ol manhood. His own thraldom incapacitates him for leadership. We would that every man and boy in Cassia county could have heard the testimony of Dr. Young at the recent conference find could have heard the most excellent addresses of Presidents wane. Jack and Smith on Friday and Sunday last on these subject*! \Ve feel that such appeals and such evidences must have mel short, too precious, too sacred, to sacrifice for things which give w lowed all and # made them feel that life is altogether t< o no real pleasure but which tend to destroy the soul.
