The past has wrought wonders

little by little humanity is
grasping greater things, as
civilization continues. If there

spent in giving thanks to God it

SEN. LEA AND HIS PAPER.
O
Senator Luke Lea lias intro
duced and secured the passage
of a congressional resolution on
te unlawful interlocking di
rectorates of the L. and N. rail
road and its subsidaries. The
Tennessean and American, Sen
ator Lea's paper, has advocated
and is advocating the investiga
tion directed by the resolution,
which discredits the often re-
peated statement that Newel
Sanders controlled the Tennes
sean and American. Mr. San
ders is a director of the N. C.
and St. L. railroad and his rail
road is effected by the resolution
to such an extent that his power
over the Tennessean and Amer
ican would have buen exercised
if such power had existed,
which also proves that a public
ofticer, though he is the highest
pfficer in the state, is often mis
represented and accused if he
espouses the peoples' cause in
any issue raised between the
people and the corporations
which seek by unlawful means
to exploit the people.
Senator Lea, through his con
trol of the Tennessean and
American and his purchase and
discontinuance of the whisuey

THANKSGIVING.
0
President Woodrow Wilson
and the governors of the differ
ent states have set apart Nov,
27th as a day on which to rest
and return thanks to God for His
manifold blessings and mercies.
The people of Polk county,
Tennessee and the United States
have many things for which to
be thankful. Never was our
county more prosperous, bur
state more blessed with the
necessities of life or our nation
ruled or managed by more com
petent men.
Thanksgiving is the day when
everyone should at least try to
be thankful. If you cannot be
thankful for anything else, sure
ly vou can thaak your lucky
htars that you are not a turkey.
Tne married ladies are thankful
that their husband has a good
wife, and the bachelors are
thankful they have only to sup
port themselves. It's easy to
be thankful, if you go about it
fight.
Mapy years'ago our forefath
ers set apart the day to thank
God because they were alive and
game was plentiful. Times have
changed since then we have
con en ences and bounties now
that the pioneers never thought
of. It would have been consider
ed absurd then to predict a wond
erful invention like the telephone
or telegraph, the monstrous
ocean steamer or the roaring,
shrieking locomotive. 13ut noth
ing is considered impossible by
science, and science is most apt
to be the most correct way of
thinking, for it is a line along
which only the wisest and best
educated men study.
