This is Thanksgiving Day and the Leader, on that account, will have no issue Friday morning. Our empIoye3 have been faithful and attentive, and are entitled to enjoy a day off along with the rest of humanity. This Is the day. when the football crank turns himself loose. The river Is having Its ups now, but Its downs will probably come within a day. or two. Ordinarily the eagle Is proud mon arch of all he surveys, liut this Is the day he must take a back seat. Ulster Turkey now has the stage. It Is stated the Nebraska uses less -po9tage stamps per capita than any other State in the Union and bhe gets licked oftener. The announcement Is made that Col uirtbus has at last gotten a Director of Public Safety. Now we may expect a new Scandal most any time. Oom Paul is getting a lot of free ad vertising out of his European trip, that's one thing very certain. But af ter all, what good will it do him? The enemies of Senator Quay claim that dhey have him beaten. But the chances are that when it comes to a .showdown the speechless statesman will have a few aces In reserve. That Italian brigand who killed the judge who tried him, the witnesses who appeared against him, the Jurors who convicted him, and the soldiers who guarded him, ought to go far in rescuing his profession from Us comic opera condition. A Colorado Indian claims to be the original Belgian hair-raiser of this country. (More than twenty years ago he met a native Belgian, owing to the fact that the latter had been looking the other way. Upon that occasion the first Belgian hair was raised in Amer ica.

Governor Nash has decided to break the long-htadnlng custom of granting tome prisoner of the Ohio penitentiary a pardon on Thanksgiving, and no ons will be so favored today. In support of his decision the goernor says that he has no authority whatever to grant a pardon before a recommendation Is ma'Jo by the board of pardons. The Russian government has decid ed upon 'the introduction of specially cheap fares upon the Trans-Siberian railway in order to encourage emigra tion to the country. A ticket from Russia to Tobolsk only costs 4s. Cd. and from Tobolsk to any station what ever In Siberia tho faro is only nine shillings. Thus the tripper can cover about 0,000 miles for a matter of 13 (shillings.

Shedd. 1 Thanksgiving makea a crU3t sweet, tho a'bsence of jt makes even the tur key bitter. Anon. Subscrlbo for the Dally Leader. THANKSGIVING. Thanksgiving Is an older holiday than ono might suppose. It was first celebrated 'by the Egyptians, who were a very religious race. Soon after tho harvests iwcro gathered, 'tho hUsnand men observed a day of feasting. It was not altogether a day of festivities, but also ,of religious worship. Iris, tho Holy Mother, protected tho harvests, and on the altar erected to her were laid costly and precious offerings. The Jews celebrated Thanksgiving Day over three thousand years ago. Their great feast was cSllcd 'the "feast of the tabernacles," nnd continued for eight successlvo days, v.t which all of the people were supposed to feast and make merry. Every hou;o had Its ser vices and 'banquets, nnd millions of people came to Jerusalem, where 'they lived In booths constructed of olive, pine and palm branches, and the ser vices consisted of "magnificent rituals, melodious chorus, and 'picturesque fes tivities." It was at one of those feasts that our Saviour was found teaching the wise men in tho temple. The feast of the Greeks was In honor of Dcmeter, the goddess of tho harvest. The fast of the Romans was In honr of the same goddess, 'but she was known 03 Ceres to them. They marched In great processions to the fields, where they engaged in sports, such as running, wrestling and boxing. In England the day of feasting was called tho "Harvest Home." It was ulso held at the close of the Ingather ing of the harvests. On the village green, feasts of archery, and wrestling matches were performed, and at tho close a great feast was given In some large field, where an ox was generally roasted. Wo now come to the first Thanksgiv ing in our own country. The Pilgrim Fathers landed on the coast of Massa chusetts in 1620. They 'Were without the moans of raising crops at once as it was nearing winter, and their supply of provisions was. small. After ten months of suffering, they gathered their first harvest, which consisted of about twenty acres of corn, and six acres of barley and peas. They thanked! God for this and prepared a great feast. Water-fowl, wild turkey and venison were brought In by hunt ers, and Massasalt and ninety Indian warriors were invfted. The feast was prepared on long tables prepared for that pui pose in a grove near the vil lage. Tho Indians sat at a separate ta'ble and although they did not use the best of manners, they wore treated very nice toy the maidens who waited upon them. After the feast was over the old' men and women -went to the church for worship, while the young men and Indians staid in the park to engage in games and sports. A drought came the next year, and for ten hours the people prayed for rain. Toward night a breeze sprang up, bringing rain, and tho rain saved the settlers from starvation. To com memorate this Goernor Bradford or dered a day of Thanksgiving to be ob served. In 17S9 President Washington is sued the first Thanksgiving proclama tion ever Issued 'by a ruler. Tho last Thursday in November was set apart to be devoted to the service of God. In 1793 the second proclamation made Its apnearance. and this dav was ob served as a general Tnanksglvlng. It was made a National Thanksgiving by President Lincoln by proclamation. Thanksgiving is now looked forward to as a day of festivities and religious worship, 'by all the people of the Unit ed States. Andl yet, after all, the best Thanksgiving Is Thanksllving." J. 0.

' According to Wednesday evening's Sentinel, ono of tho boldest' an'd most successful robberies ever attempted In Parkersburg was accomplished on Saturday evening. Tho affair has been kept very quiet, as detectives have been hard at work on the case and it was thought desirable to keep It from the ears of the public as long as possi ble, but tho story leaked out yesterday evening, bringing to light a theft which has startled 'tho authorities by Its magnitude. On Saturday evening a young lady entered the storo of J. A. Wernerell & Son, on Market street, and asked to be shown some diamond rings. Mr. Wet,herell waited upon tlin lady and took from the snow case a tray of dia mond and pearl rings. Tho lady looked through tho tray and finally selected ono and together she and Mr. Weth erell stepped to tho rear of tho store to get better light on the ring, meantime leaving the tray on the counter. The purchaser expressed her approval of the ring she had selected and paid for It. She was then shown some vases and selected one of these asking that It be laid aside for her. It was som" little time before Mr. Wetherell was at liberty and 'he forgot all about thp tray of rings and it was not missed when tho goods were put away for the night. The rings werenot missed until Mon day. Little or no clue can be found. There were about thirty-six rings tak en and they were valued at between $200 and $230.
