Our many states all unite in keeping the beautiful festival of Thanksgiving. Its very name is suggestive because tile giving of thanks implies a recog nition of One, unseen but ever-living, who sends the world the gifts on which its existence depends. From Almighty Cod we receive the rain, the sunshine, the summer's hfeat and the winter’s cold, the bread we eat, the fuel that warms us and the clothing we wear. There are few so foolish or so stupid as not to believe in the great Creator and the kind All-Father, from whose hand our dally blessings come. Especially should you and I have a thought of him when the myriad hemes of the country are en joying at this season the gifts that must be traced directly to the kind ness of heaven. The great nation keeps Thanksgiving, but the great na tion is composed of millions of Indi vidual persons, among them you who read and I who write. Suppose we stop and ask ourselves what we like best about this holiday and what spirit we may most fittingly bring to its celebration. First. I think we like it because it Is so genial and Jolly, so cheerful and bright, so patriotic and stirring a day. Thousands of families are reunited at the Thanksgiving dinner. The trains that come to New England or F’enn sylvania or Illinois, from California, Oregon and Nevada, bring home for Thanksgiving men and women who want to he boys and girls once more under the old roof. I remember watching from a train ns it stopped at a station the delight ed greeting of a half-dozen people who seemed to he father, mother, sons and daughters, as they swarmed upon a dear little old lady who was waiting to receive them. Her husband, a white-haired patriarch, who might have sat for the portrait of Santa Claus, was holding his horses while the children and grandchildren thronged into the big four-seated wagon. They had come home for Thanksgiving. Many such scenes will be enacted this year, as they hnve been every year since our country was settled If we have been so unwise ns to let n pessimistic spirit weave its evil spell around us. let us break the fetters without delay. Wherever we are, at home or abroad, rich or poor, let us be thsnkful that we have reached anoth er golden milestone In life. 1 repeat that Thanksgiving Is a genial, cheer ful, wholesome and breezy day. Let us make the pent out of it, and wher ever we are he as Jolly as we ran. Much to Be Thankful For. If over we are tempted to nay that though others have much to be thank ful for. our lives are hard and our paths are thorny, let us stop a minute and see by what standard we are measuring our blessings. If we look at C, cripple plodding along with crutches we cannot help being thank ful that wre have feet which serve us well and that we can walk and run without so much as considering the effort. If we see somebody who Is barefooted. w*e may be thankful for shoes. When the rain beats on the roof at night we may be thankful for the house that shelters us. When tbr* dr .etc r calls next door to see an in valid who Is tossing with fever we may be thankful that we are well. If there are (lowers on the door bell t< ro«is the street we may toe that. Mu I that thsre are *»o vacant chairs in our home FAVORS TO PREPARE ' FOR THE GREAT DAY Not Alone the Children of the Family, but Alto the Grownupe May Be Fur niehed Special Trifles to Add Zest to the Thanksgiving Dinner. FAVORS for the Thanksgiving din ner table may be made of pulled figs, raisins and nuts, held to gether with toothpicks and topped with marshmallow heads, the features outlined In chocolate. Each of these little figures should be mounted on a fiat foundation made of u thick, firm cookie and the toothpick Tegs made to stand upright by embedding them In a little mound of chocolate frosting which should extend outward to form the feet. Two Inrge raisins, the ends thrust into the toothpicks, form the legs and two small pulled figs serve as a dress, the figs being thrust on ! the toothpicks so that the tapering J stem ends shall meet to form a waist j line. Two raisins are used for each | arm, ending In a single peanut t >r a I hand. The marshmallow head Is covered with chocolate except cn one side, where chocolate features are drawn ! with a toothpick dipped In melted j chocolate. A peaked hat made from half a fig should top tho grotesque little figure. For this work pulled figs nro nbm lutely necessary. Ordinary layer figs will not do. as to make the bodies of these figures the figs must be of natural shape. These figs come packed In small baskets and one basket of figs at 25 cents will make six favors. Another style of favor ran he fash ioned from short, th?"k sticks of candy. Top the stlcit v.tth a marsh mallow head, pinching It round, and drawing chocolate features and a lit tle curl down the forehoi.d. Press a couple of figs very thin and curl them around the enndy doll, keeping them out from the body by means cf tooth picks held to the stick of candy with white frosting. If the stick of candy Is plnln white, paint chocolate but tons down the front nnd rest the ab surd little favor on a square of sugared popcorn. If these favors are chosen for tho children of the family, the grown per sons may have something different. Choose paper lnrgnons for the wom en. the eyeglass portion representing two miniature pumpkins and the long handle simulating their stem. Cut the pattern of a good sized lorgnon from cardboard, covering the handle with dull green crepe paper. Cut four yellow pumpkins from the crepe paper that comes so decorated and cover the eyeglass portion of tho lorgnon on both sides. Cut holes for the eyes so that these favors may be nctually used while at the table. A bow of bright yellow ribbon tied half way down the handle of the lorgnon is a pretty addition For the men have long rolls of yel low' paper tied at each end to simu late snap motto papers. Instead of the usual folded paper cap inside con ceal a cigar. THE THANKSGIVING GIRL Yon may boast of the maiden of summer.

ROOSTING HIGH GREATEST HOLIDAY IS OF THE HOME Especially Does the Day Upon Which the Nation Gives Thanks for the Many Mercies Extended Stand aa a Revelation of Domestic Happiness. THERE In ample cause for tho spir it of Thanksgiving day in tho place which the home holds In Amerlcaxf life. It Is enough to make any people grateful to be able to depend upon such domestic health, peace and hnpplness us prevail In the United States. Thanksgiving day brings uncounted family reunions. It means the return to old homes of those who have gone far away. It reunites circles long broken. It exalts the family Idea, the foundation ou which humun so ciety rests. And every year the holiday of tho hearth, the day dedicated, informally but not the less certainly, to the home principle, finds the number of happy .louseholds In America larger than ever before. Every November the picture of home gatherings, in gratitude and peace, 1b painted on a scale more vast and impressive. The most extreme pessimist knows in his heart that this is true. It Is impossible to reflect upon tho progress of the country and the gains made by the people of the United States, despite all drawbacks and mishaps, without realizing that In the broadest sense the life of the nation ij) health ier. sounder, safer and happier than ever. And the old-farfhloned cornerstone on which this national health and san ity of mind and spirit rests Ib the fnmily. It takes Thanksgiving to bring Into due prominence the enduring foundation of the wonderfully complex and elaborate structure of Amerlcnn life. When the millions of widened family circles are formed today, around well laden tables, the position of tho Ameri can life is patent to every thought ful citizen of this republic. It is al ways clear enough to keen eyed strangers visiting the foremost coun try of the New World. While the great holiday of the home stands where it has always stood, where it stands today, as a revelation of domestic happiness and family loy ulty. there* will be nothing vitally amiss with the American nation. Tho spirit of Thanksgiving day Is a moral tonic and a guarantee of civic health. The Best Thanksgiving. Them Is one blessing which Is npver taken away from those who want It. It la worthier of our thanksgiving than all other blessinga combined. And tho more we give thanka for It, the more wo shall see In It to give thanks for. This blpsalng Is God hlmaelf. Haro we learned tho Joy of thanking God for himself? Have we practiced this form of thanksgiving dally? To pour out our thanksgiving to God for what he Is has a remarkable result. It means that In tho very act of such thanksgiving wo rec> Ive more of him to bo thnnkful for. It Is as though, when we thanked a friend for a gen erous gift of money, with every word of our thanks that friend poured more money Into our hands. Tho outgoing of our praise to God means the In coming of God. TiCt us take time apart on this Thanksgiving day, alone with God. to praise him and thank him for what he la. A half-hour apent thua with him. with perhaps the hook of Psalms open before us, can make the day memorable In our lives. Moreover—let It bo said reverently— It will make the day memorable In God's own life; for the praise of his children rejoices God’s heart. Shell we not make It a day of thanksgiv ing In heaven because of onr thanks giving on earth*’—Sunday School Tlmea. Unfortunate In Their Nature. There will he some who will not 'Ive thanks of any sort on Thanks Ivlng day. With them tho world Is ill wrong Justice has fled from the earth, and all other men are untrust worthy. Some will mall that, they were born under an unlucky star and loot on the dark side of every hies* ing. Their very presence casts a gloom on everything. Tt Is against tbeir natures to grant a thankful word. THANKSGIVING ODE OF THE OLDEN TIME Poet In the Quaint Phraseology of Centuries Ago Expreeaed Qratltudo for the Klndneee of the Creator, From a “Thankfule Heart.” LOUD. Thou heat riven me a cell. Wherein to dwell; A little house, whose humble roof la weather proof; Under the spurrea of which I He Doth aoft and drle; Where Thou, my chamber for to ward.

LET US ALL GIVE THANKS Seaton la a Time to Be Glad, and te Make Others Around Ua Par take of Our Joy. Let us make this the hest Thanks giving of our lives. Remember our gratitude Is not measured by the size of tho family larder. Abundance tends to contentment, but many a man In llmked circumstances Is hap pier than others of larger means. Real wealth and worth lies not In the abundance a man hath, but In content ment’s gold. When the heart Is full the whole world Is richer. Your smile will go a long way toward making someone else happy. A cheerful life opens avenues to future achievement hidden to him who sees no good around him. Tho past Is a matter of record, the present Is near and real, the future Is limited only by yourself. Make It all It can be, and history will add a new chapter, and you will he the hero. Let us give thanks. The nation needs the Inspiration of your song. There are plenty of groans and grunts and growls. Wo need more song. !» hnln't no o*«* to grumble and complain; lt’» Just as cheap and easy to rejoice. You will feel more manly by being glad. It adds to your self-respect and makes you feel that you lave a place In the world. Inspire your ago with a new type of chivalry. Meet drone* and kickers with a smile and you will do much to bring In the good time that Is to be. Wherever you are let this he a real period of thanksgiving. Let us see If we cannot add to the world’s Joy by the spirit of our own living. Universal Day of Thanks. About the Institution of Thanksgiv ing as It exists today ther'e Is noth ing sectarian or sectional. but over the entire Union the day Is observed by all Americans alike as the time for family reunion, good cheer and gen eral rejoicing and gratitude.
