Central Meat Market Carney A Tweedy, TELEPHONE MAIN SS. Where were ThankHglvlng services first held? In England, during the time of Cromwell thanksgiving days were common occurrences. The discovery of the "gunpowder plot," in 1605 was followed by a thanksgiving In England and that na tion observed such a day on many like occasions, the last probably being a national thunksglvlng when the Prince of Wales, now Edward VII, recover ed from a serious Illness. Where and when was the first ThankHglvlng observance In the New World? The first thanksgiving held In Am erica was not held within the bounds of the United States, but on the shore of Newfoundland, May 27, 1578, at the time services were held by the Rev. Mr. Wolfull, an English minis ter. He had accompanied an early colony from England. It is claimed that It was the first Christian sermon preached In the new world. When was the first Thanksgiving proclamation in this country? November 19, 1621; made by Gov ernor Bradford to the Pilgrim Fath ers. He announced that since they had Just gathered abundant harvests of grain and the cold weuther had s nt plenty of game to their forests, December 12, 1661, would bo observ ed throughout the Plymouth colony as a day of thanksgiving. Who signed the first Thanksgiving proclamation ever Issued by a presi dent? George Washington, In 1782, Who originated the modern Thanksgiving day, as It Is observed in the United States? The Thanksgiving as it occurs to day dates from 1S64, when President Lincoln Issued a proclamation for set ting apart the last Thursday In No vember of that year as a day of na tional thanksgiving. Each succeeding president has an nually proclaimed a thanksgiving day which Is generally followed by the governors of the various states. Who makes the Thanksgiving proc clamatlon ? The president of the United States. How is it done? The president writes it out with his own hand, trying to put In as much of the spirit of the day as possible. This is not an easy task. He must avoid repenting expressions that have been used by preceding presidents, and yet he must cover the same ground that they cover. When he has finished writing It out. it Is copied and this copy is sent to the state de partment. One of the clerks who Is a good penman, writes the proclama tin artistically on parchment. The parchment Is then sent back to the White House, imd the president signs It; after that It Is taken buck to the state department, where the secretary of state adds his name; then the great seal of the state depnrtmnt Is affixed In order to put the Kreat seal on the proclamation a note from the presi dent Is necessary. In which he says: "I hereby authorize nnd direct the secretary of slate to cause the seal of the United States to be affixed to my Thanksgiving proclamation, dat ed this day and signed by me, und for so doing this shall be his warrant." What is done with the proclamation when It has been thus written and signed ? A great many clerks in the state do partment are then ordered to mak as many copies of the proclamation as there ore governors of states an territories. These copies are wrltte ny nana on long sneets or blue pa per. j ne state, department never uses the typewriter or any other means of writing except artistic hand writing for making copies of official correspondence. What do the different governor of the states do -when they have re celved their copies of the president's proclamation? They then write special proclama tions of their own, announcing to the people of their states the fact that the president has fixed on such and such a day for the observance of thanks giving worship and festivities. HAYES-DORANDO MARATHON RACE WEDNESDAY New York, Nov. 24. Madison Square Garden will probably hold a big crowd tomorrow evening when John J.

Jack Gleason's fight club will come into the limelight tomorrow evening when a great mob of eager fight fans will gather to witness what promises to be one of the best battles ever pulled oft with the middleweight championship title as the stake. Stanley Ketchell, oi Grand Rapids, Mich., and "Bill" Tapke, the Illinois thunderbolt, will be the contestants. Each man holds a decision over the other and the Thanksgiving eve -will be looked upon as decisive. Both Papke and Ketchell are out for blood and one of them will likely get It where the Thanks giving turkey gets the axe. The mill is scheduled to go 20 rounds and the fighters will receive DO per cent of the receipts divided 60 and 40 per cent. Papke will receive a bonus of 10 per cent, win or lose or daw. At Los Angeles on Labor day, Papke handed out an awful drubbing t Ketchell. from which Stanley Is Jus1 now recovering. He knocked out the Mlchlgander In the 12th round after one of the most gruelling contests ever seen In southern California. In a talk with Ketchell after the fight a local sporting man found out the real cause of Stanley's defeat. He had not trained properly for the fight, considering Papke easy game, and when they met In the ring Papke was as fit as a fiddle, while Ketchell was all in from the gay life he had been leading. Ketchell now realizes that he made a mistake in that contest, and has worked faithfully to get In shape for tomorrow's battle.
