THANKSGIVING HOT. ■A few days after tho Pilgrims Fathers Instituted the Thanksgiving occasion, the newspapers of the per iod began sawing off a lot of rot about the things for which they were thankful and why They have kept it up even until this day. and of all the rotien rot that was ever inflicted upon the bosom of n God-fearing public, the average Thanksgiving editorial is under the wire before anything else on the tracK reaches the uarter post. As a literary production in ninety-nine crises out of the jtossible hundred it is a blighting, withering, decimal ing frost. As far a.; anything else In concerned, if a man has nt sense to know what he has a right to be thankful for, it is a lo r of energy to attempt to tell him. It's better to tell him to go chase himseli around a block. butt his head against a stone fence or a brick vail or leno'.ate hU belfry of bats. To say that the ordinary person, male or female, feels any more thankful on Thanksgiving than ar>> other day, except of course for the feed, is to state aa untruth. We would not decry the institution. It's all right, but we should be thank ful every day for the Nlasslngs we have received or escaped The mau point about Thank giving is that i. is a holiday, and a day off with a square meal la the bargain is good for most folks. Hut suj»pose we were to start out to tell the dear people the things f'r which we are thankful, we would inflict a lot of silly doj.e if we generalized, and personally It Is a private matter.
