L^kueen of Thanksgiving. ) \_\W In the Race for Honors Next Thursday the Amer- 5 S j e an Girl Is First Favorite. 5 If the fact of getting everything one wishes for constitutes cause for thanks giving, then the American girl should be the most contented of mortals. The emancipation of women, that hackney ed slogan of those who declare the sex to l.c fettered by the tyrant man. falls flat in America for want of. a suitable foil.

As drawn by prominent artists during the past year. givings have found her, not emanci pated, for she never was enslaved, but free as the bright, frosty air that wooes her athletic frame, sending the bleed coursing swiftly through her veins and imprinting the charming tinge of ro bust health on her cheeks.

A good place to view her at her best will be from the sidewalk of any smooth-paved street of our cities, or from the pathways of macadamized country roads. Here, in the nattiest and newest of bicycle rigs, she will be seen, with her cheeks aglow, her bright eyes sparkling, her pretty hair dancing merrily in the wind, bowling along a-wheel at a pace that surely has noth ing in common with chains or fetters, unless it be the bicycle chain that en ables her to challenge the wind to a trial of speed and beat the old flirt in a canter. The manner in which the American girl has taken advantage of this glorious sport bears ample testi mony to the fact that when she wants a thing she will have it and knows how to take the fullest advantage of what is hers by right. If the shades of the dear old grandmothers of the days of wheel and distaff could return to earth next Thursday and gather along the highways and byways where laughing, chaffing, free and happy col umns of wheel women fly by, they will surely return to the land of shadows with feelings of regret that their lot was not cast in an era when women find more healthful means of employ ing their time than the laborious and confining duties of the old-fashioned home life. That th- change is vastly for the better even i»k ost disgrun tled and cross-grained critic of the up to-date womanhood will admit. In stead of the pale-faced, narrow-chested woman of the wheel and distaff era, the spectator who chooses a front seat to view the passing show r of Thanksgiving day '97 will see a long procession of rosy-cheeked, lithe-limbed, happy, THE SAINT PAUI, GLOBE: SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1897. healthy and wholesome specimens of femininity that speak contentment In every action. Vicing for honors with the bicycle girl of Thanksgiving day, '97, is that sport-loving sister of hers who dotes on the touzled-headed heroes of the football field. Wherever the muscular giants of the gridiron meet to fight inch by inch toward the coveted goal, bruis ing and battering each other ln the Interests of the famous game whose season ends next Thursday, there will be heard the music of shrill cheers from fair throats; there will be seen the waving of flags held In neatly-gloved hands, and the enthusiastic applause of the hosts of feminine admirers that will pack the grand stands and shout for the glory of the American sport. No football scene in the country will be 1897. complete without the American girl to cheer the contending heroes on to victory. What matters it how the game goes? Is it not recompense enough for those who must swallow the bitter dose of defeat that sweethearts and sisters who have watched them straining ev ery nerve and muscle for hours in a vain effort to win stand ready to sym pathize with and cheer the broken spirited losers as well as to congratu late the winners. For the sake of the bright eyes that watch the struggling and mud-begrimed contestants on the football fields of Thanksgiving day '97, each man will summon up every ounce of reserve force in his muscular frame and fight for the mastery with the same spirit that prompted the knights of old to couch lance, clap spurs to steed and dash on for fame and his lady's guerdon. It is for the sake of the American girl that bruises will be counted as naught and blood-flowing gloried in on the football field next Thursday. True, there are some who entertain the mistaken notion that the honor of college or club is the fore most incentive to victory, but those who don the padded suit and fight for glory on the football field know bet ter. A point gained on the gridiron means a point gained in the anxious heart of the bright-eyed spectator on the grand stand; a run down the field in the face of fierce opposition is made because the athlete who carries the ball knows that he carries with it the hopes and fears of one of the fur-clad onlookers who has eyes in the game for him alone; a kick that sends the oval soaring gloriously through space in the direction of the coveted posts is accompanied by a feeling of joyful an ticipate because the owner of the foot knows that Bomewhere among the crowd of spectators one pair of eyes watches the progress of the ball with a fluttering heart. What nonsense to think that the perspiring heroes strug gle for the supremacy of their college. They run and tackle and kick and bleed for the honor of the American girl who has their hearts in keeping, and no one knows it better than she. But if the American girl will shine where healthful sport is the programme she will positively glow around the festive board and ln the social circles next Thursday. The thought of a fes tival without her is too gloomy a pros pect to be entertained. If the frost brightened features of the out-door girl have their peculiar charm there is an- other and an especial attractiveness surrounding the indoor girl who, daint ily attired in shimmering loveliness presides at the Thanksgiving tabic and adds grace and beauty to the home. Compared to her the Thanksgiving bird is a sorry delusion in spite of the hold he has on the hearts of the citi zens. If the American girl has herself cause for thankfulness, It is a small matter in comparison with the grati tude r that should be entertained by the male half of -humanity towards the shaper of our destinies that she is with us to heighten the brightness of the day. She ls a worthy theme for poets and a fitting topic for the orators of the day. Let poets summon the muse and orators tax their vocabulary to the utmost, and do full justice to a worthy subject— the Thanksgiving day girl of 1897. Poets and orators, however, must not be allowed to monopolize the Thanks giving day girl. Has she not come to the front in art so that her male competitors are beginning to fear for their laurels? Then what so fitting as that the best artists of America should take their drawing boards, and portray indelibly their idea of the American girl. The idea has been taken up with vim and enthusiasm by the artists as the accompanying illustration will show. No one will question the truth of the statement that it is the finest thing ln newspaper Illustration ever printed in this city or state. Each type of girl was drawn by a leading newspaper illustrator, and, with such a subject for their pen it is not to be wondered at that the artists have surpassed themselves. This galaxy of the ideal of American artists who have protray ed the American girl, showing her in characteristic poses, ls worthy of chief place among the national tributes of tbe day. Like the eubject, it is beau tiful, it is natural, it is 'jtraffectedly be witching. But the American girl needs no art to add to her attractiveness, and no artist to contend for her right to flrst place In the hearts of the peo ple of America. She has all that and a good deal more, and every one is glad that It is so. m $8.00 TO CHICAGO, Via "The Milwaukee," Commencing Nov. 23.
