Bankert BLACKFOOT ^ IDAHO LET US ALL GIVE THANKS From the time of the landing of the Pilgrim Fathers, Americans have been accustomed to set aside one day in the year wherein to review the past year and take stock of the dealings of Providence with us as a people. What was at first the spontaneous expression of grateful hearts soon be came a custom, and aa the years sped this customo became f-od, until to day it assumes the suere .ness of a per manent. institution. This season is again « ith us. Tha fruits of the broad aci « of our fair domain have been gari e.-ed in. Tho warehouses and granaries are fairly bursting with their contents and pros perity sets a guest at almost every fireside. Our president and the governors of various states have designated the day on which the people shall express to a bountiful Creator their gratitude for these blessings. And to the many positive anil materi al blessings which have been ours, there is added on this occasion the es pecial blessing that we as a people have escaped the madness that has fallen as a blight upon our neighbors and kinsmen across the waters. The magnitude of that blessing we cannot ah this time begin to estimate. But while we have these palpable blessings for which to lie thankful, we have other things for which to ex press our gratitude, and these nntedate and underlie our present happiness and prosperity, our peace and safety. Wo have to be thankful that back in the days when our nation was being born, a land of heroes, than whom the world has never produced greater, had im pressed upon their hearts to lay the foundations of that, nation upon the only possible true and lasting base— the Fatherhood of an omnipotent God and the brotherhood of man. Ami we have to be thankful that, all down the years since that time there have been heroic souls—worthy sons of noble sires-—who have never ceased to call to us with clarion voice to watch and preserve the old landmarks, to plant our feet upon the everlasting rock and stand firm. And over and above all i-Ihc, we have to be thankful that a merciful God inis ho moulded the hearts and lives of the people of this nation that we are enabled to look above and beyond self ami see for ourselves the great, princi ples of eternal truth and justice that must ultimately rule the whole earth; that we are enabled to grasp the truth that an injury to ourselves, anil that a kindness to our fellows calls down a benediction upon our heads. Bo that the one supreme blessing for which we should at this season re turn thanks, is the fact that our Goil has enabled us as a people to know ami to <lo the light. And let our prayer be, that it may ever lie thus with nur ......pie. Announcement! From now on until Dec. 1st, 1916, we will paint any Overland Car pur chased from us, any color to suit pur chaser.
