Welcome to you, New Casey Jones, may you have as much pleasure and happiness in writing the items us 1 had. in the "good old diys ' when "Ace" "Dinah", "Pansy"' "Suke.y" "The Devil" and lois more were on the Mirror statf of coi respou dents. Who knows what hat- become of the old w riterhV I set that Sukey is the only one of all the foi mer wi iters thai is -still "faithful".

The hit ter does uot know me, and 1 have never met "'ner" but I have heard "her" voice on the phone many times und ! believe I would kmw"her" if 1 should heat "her" agaiu I have ahto heard "Sukey" talk m the phone. They may wonder hew I knew it was the m but I'll never tell how I obtained the in formal ion, but uoue of the writers told me. "Ace" was the only one of the correspondents that I was ac quanted with hut I Hint ly eu joyed the items trom all aud it was so much fun to keep the others guessingas tothe identity of each.

Pilgrims not always "blue" Also, Writer Asserts, Far Mere Liberal Minded Than is Ganerally Believed. Diffsred Widely From the Puritans, Thouijh Popular Belief Has Coupled Them Former Body Permeated With Aristocracy.

Tin- 1-iTtor t lenient is quite pre uotiiiiitiiit in (he general . attitude to Taid ti,e day. It would be h good idea to hyphen ate the words ''i'lianks-Givliiz," for in tliut way the word, "giving" rather tima ".akinji" would be einpliaslzed mid tlics lie in better accord with the true spirit of the day. In any event, we are all Very thankful ihut lu our country we still express our gratitude to the Lord in the same laiiKiiat'e used by the I'Hgrlius three hundred yeurs airo in lU'Jl, writes Prof. B. J. Ciaiand, ineinbe;- of faculty, Uiil,eislty of Il linois, iu the ChkOKO American. It is to be regretted that so many peopls iHe the terms Pllsrlm aud Puritan Interchangeably. In reality they aio widely different. Pilgrims Liberal-Minded. The Pilgrims were liberal-minded people. They were double Protestants, having rebelled against not only the Roman Christian methods but also against the regal or English govern ment church. In the belief that they could r.ot reform the former and cer tainly not amend or change the lat ter, i'i j chose to go to Uullund and later to America, there to worship as they p' eased. Tliu Puritans believed they could altt-r the Episcopal or government (Lurch so they remained faithful to the re; at religion and the sovereign. The Pi'ihiis were liberal m'uded, far more s.j than they are given credit for bei;:g, while it was the Puritans who wore strict. Tt!e Pilgrims taught equality. They said ' iove ore another," and their Captaln Miles Standish, at the Pilgrims' Punch With His ccrdlaltly and imispitaiity toward, new coiners is out) ot tiie sweetest memui les of ploneei America. They were ever anxious to win peo ple to Christ, without completely mak ing over the new recruit. It is wrong to charge them with even "exacting that all In their midst be of tliein faith," for of The 102 who came over in the Mayflower, all wers not of the same falih. When the Puritans of Boston (und they came many yars subsequent to the Pilgrims) made it so unpleasant for Roger Williams, It was the Pil grim community of Plymouth which welcomed him and made his trip to Rhode Islund safe by Insuring kindly treatment from the Indians. Williams was banished by the Puritans for as serting "It Is wrong to prevent a inau from holding office If he be not a Christian." Clung to Old English Idea. The Purituns, too, were aristocrat ic. They clung to the old EnglN' Idea thut a man was measured I his blue blond and again some blue and bloated porketbook. But not so with the Pilgrims. They cared nothing ubout blood and less about the king's metallic picture. The Puritans were the Republicans of New England and the Pilgrims were the Democrats. The former decided they would Uot. associate with the easy going "equali ty community," tis they called the Pilgrims. ' Soon ufter the Lord caused a great sickness to full upon the Bos ton colony. Governor Endlcntt was obliged to beg Governor Bradford of Plymouth to "please come to our res cue HUd send Doctor Fuller, that fam ous physician, to take cure of the sick colony." This slego'of Illness If your bowels do lot act re gularly, you feel u n-inn for table, ami th.f longer this condition exists the worse you feel. To put an cud to the misery, take llerbiui'.

The .pi'.turt we paint of these peo ple causes the rising generation to shuu contact with these well-meaning early Americans. There 1 more ca.L'lty in the averue-sized communi ty today, tl ere Is more tyranny in the und Mils moiueut aiuiug industrial daises, more unreasonable civic tax ation, to bay nothing of various re llglous restrictions, than was exacted In those days of the Pilgrims' regime. There have been more unjust accu- sulio.iS against mese nutiou lounu- ers than Americans realize. Those people were not half as "blue" i.r severe as we have been led to be lieve. They were human and most charitable. Let us teach aud preach to love and revere them. Laws Did Not Exist, Is Claim. Arthur Gilman, a great authority on legal affairs lu the colonies, writes that "it is almost needless to say that the go-culled blue laws, which have been made the butt and Joke and ob ject of violent objurgation, were never in existence in thut colony, but were manufactured by a writer who desired to hold the colony up to ridicule." Certified copies of these blue laws full to materialize. Iu fact. New Jersey, Virginia, and parts of the South, were by far more strict about the observance of the "First Day" as the Sabbath was called. New Jersey forbade traveling for pleasure, or oth er similar recreation. Infraction of these rules might be punished by the whipping post, a fine or imprisonment. Let us not point our fingers too sharply at the Pilgrims. It may surprise some to read that rum, Madeira wine and punch, with plenty of mule power (kick) could be obtained in Pilgrim communities. The ordinances specified the prices to be charged. Ladles often served the drinks at the public taverns, which were under the Immediate Jurisdiction of the coun ty laws. Those taverns were clean, wholesome places, often serving on the Sabbath as places of religious worship. We are all glad that the pioneers had good things and knew how to use tliein. Stirred Punch With Sword 1 have before me a long and well defined account of a "stag" Pilgrim party. That famed military spirit, Cupt. Miles Standish, had A big howl of punch before him. The ao "Stag" Party, Stirred the Steaming Shining Sword count tells of the captain stirring the steaming contents with his sword. The Juice of the grape was used in a sanctified way, not In that reckless, debauchlug way and unreasonable fashion of the present. The pleas ures and merriments, too, were of a sane and profitable character, feud ing to uplift and make better the en tire social, fabric. Let us not nud so much fault with our Pilgrim ancestors. The mothers knew how to darn stockings In those days. They do now, only .the word has a different meaning. - Give these pioneers of republican institutions and democratic ways a place In your heart.' Give credit and honor where it belongs. That form of truth will not ouly make us free but will keep us free. Day's Deeper Meaning.' Three centuries ago the Plymouth colonists kept our first Thanksgiving day. For more than threescore years the date has beeu established and the observance nation-wide. The history and the spirit of Thanksgiving are simple and familiar, yet of a kind apart and exalted and requiring to be many times retold. Scholars have spoken of a kinship of this feast to the Jewish Feast of Tabernacles, but the likeness Is indistinct In ceremony and remote iu time. It need not change the feeling that Thanksgiving day Is a day distinctive and original, evolved of the geuius of a strong, new people. earnestly at work and conscious ot God. yihiQeBn lib Hacgei? ttflne Sumo? a Ceiintt The sun is the largest but you can hold the cent so close to your eye that you'll lose sight of the sun.
