The vote on Tuesday is pn amazing
revelation of the personal popularity
of Woodrow Wilson. C0113 derir.g ile
vote of proceeding years his gains in
1916 are wonderful.
Mr. Wilson received 1,025,000 more
votes this year than in 19 1?.
He has received more votes than
were ever before cast for a Democrat.
'His vote is 825,000 larger tnan the
largest vote received by Mr. Bryan,
which was in 1896.
Mr. Wilson has received only 2S0.000

No president upon his reelection

Roosevelt carried 32 States in 1904,

Harvest and Peace
Not only for the harvest yield
We stripped from stalks in serned
We look across the quiet field
! And raise the anthem of our thank
The moonlight lies along the hill
Below a silver river news
And all the night is sweet and still
And all theTand in calm repose.
Not only for the bounteous store
Of garnered grain we offer praise.
But for the quiet sea and shore.
The nights of rest, the pleasant days.
As year by year our acres bloom.
As year by year our flocks increase.
Afar from war and war's red gloom.
We look upon a land at peace.

AY after day Billy Mc
Vickers sat in his stu-
,dio . Just off .the tiny
park and painted away
at Charmette. Togeth
er they had decided
tha the picture must
hang in the grand sa
lon, therefore It must
be wonderfully done
Indeed. With herself
as the subject, Billy
had asswed her that
the thing was as good as accomplished,
only of course it would take time and
she must be very, very quiet. "For,"
he explained, "you have as many dif
ferent expressions as have the clouds
themselves, and of course I cannot
paint them all. So you must fix your
eyes and mind upon one thing, that
your expression may always remain
the same." Whereat Charmette, being
very much in love with Billy, fastened
both upon him and her expression was
a happy one Indeed. Then when he
would lay his brush aside with a lit
tle weary sigh and tell her that they
were through for the sitting, she would
came hopping off her pillowed divan
and running behind him rest her chin
upon the top of his head as she puck
ered her lips and solemnly criticized
herself upon the canvas.
"And do I really look like that,
Billy?" she would half whisper while
he was slipping an arm around her
slim waist. Whereat he would say:
"Yes, dear only of course much
prettier. But I will bring that fact
out as I go along." So Charmette would
tidy things up a bit as he washed his
hands, then away they would go chat
tering like sparrows about the won
derful time so soon to come when Billy
would be of age and receive his heri
tage in America, for when that day
came they were to be married and he
was to take her back to his own land.
"And it happens to be next Thanks
giving," he told her; then explained
what the term meant to those born in
his country across the sea. For Char
mette, being a Belgian girl, had never
heard of it until the coming of Billy.
And then came the dark time when
Paris stilled and grew pale and the
very ground seemed to quiver beneath
the tread of the advancing legions.
Her Expression Was a Hsppy One
Through Belgium they came pounding
in tho vastest machine ever built bj"
man as they .smashed her great
fortresses like anthills beneath a jug
gernaut and swept over her in a
great tide, rolling the defenders be
fore them as a wave rolls before the
prow cf a ship. And in those terri
ble hcr.rs the hand of Billy left his
brush and sought that of Charmette
as they sat with faces turned east
ward searching the sky for 'the. rings
of shell smoke which they knew must
soon float in the air in grim banquets
of death. Then it was that one morn
ing the girl came to him with let
ter in her hand and tears flooding her
blue eyes.
"They have destroyed my home, and
my old father and mother are outcasts.
I must go to them. Good-by, Biay,"
she sob'-ad. He kissed her.
"But of course I shall go with you."
She only pr.shed him away, pointing to
a regiment of red-trousered -soldiers
that was hurrying to the front.
"No.' For two years you received
a military training in yeur own coun
try. Tomorrow you must join the army
of France." .
"But you he pleaded, and broke
down. She returned his kiss.
"If we are both alive we will find
each other upon your great day of
Thanksgiving ten weeks away. And
until then" But there is no need
of going Into their parting, for the last
words of love are sacred. However,
three days later she was In Belgium
and he was marching and "counter
marching in that wonderful tinknown
army which even the eagle eye of the
enemy's spies liad not discovered; the
army of minute men which lay hidden
behind Paris.
Came the day when the hot breath
of advancing hosts was in the rery
face of the great capital upon the
Seine. In companies, regiments, bat
talions and divisions they came In an
endless martial sea, sweeping the le
gions of the trl-color before them miles
each day. And then it was that the
great French general sprang his trap.
In cars, buses, automobiles and by
every means which ingenuity could de
vise, the secret armyrom behind the
city was rushed to the front. Billy,
in the midst of it, heard the rumble
and grumble of the battle from miles
away, and scenting it felt the hair on
the back of his head bristle as it
does upon a dog when he smells a
wolf. Then In a great surge there
swept over him the thought of Char
mette, and tears blinded him as he
imagined her so slender and helpless
wandering homelessly in her desolate
country; and with it a longing vast
and unutterable to throw down his
gun and go rushing blindly away in
search of her that he might take her
In his arms and bear her away from
all this hell to the peace and happi
ness that had been theirs through the
long summer when the days bad fallen
softly as thistledown. God! how he
hated It all this war and blood and
heartbreaks. And then without know
ing why, he suddenly found himself
rushing forward Into a gray murk with
thousands of his companions on either
A Fierce Yell Bursting From His Lips.
hand, a fierce yell bursting from his
lips and the battle lust turning him
hot as a flame as he realized that they
were charging.
Dimly he was conscious of showers
of Invisible things that passed him
in hurtling flight. " Huge clouds of
dust arose on all sides and where there
had been level ground suddenly
yawned great pits; thunderous explo
sions deafened him and he staggered
before the impact of blows of com
pressed air. On every side men and
horses were going down in groups, in
heaps, in whole windrows like wheat
before hail. Before him in a clump
of trees was something that belched
and roared like a dragon, and before
his scattered senses told him that it
was a battery he found himself in a
wild bayonet conflict with a pale
haired young man who wore a spiked
helmet, and almost at the mouth of the
belching monster of the brush. Then
as they thrust and parried, suddenly
the fair-haired man went down and
Billy leaped on, not knowing what had
made the other fall, yet vaguely con
scious that his bayonet ran red. Then
a great darkness engulfed him.
It was evening and he was lying
upon the bank of a stream that ran
close by his old home. At his side
the brook was tinkling like bells and
the coolness of its waters was upon
his face. Lord, but he was thirsty, and
rolling over he buried his face in the
ripples and drank interminably. Then
as he turned upon his back again a
pain sliot through his head, and some
one whom he could not see, but who
was close by him, lie Tin whimpering
like a hurt puppy. Endlessly the whim
perings continued, until, unaUo to en
dure them longer, ho sat up and rough
ly bade, the complainer cease his noise.
And as ho did this the fog was swept
from his brain and he found himself
lying in the debris of a battle-swept
wood with the noise of the conflict still
coming to him from afar. A fright
ful pain stabbed his brain and from
his dry throat burst a weak moan, and
then it was that he realized that it had
been his own voice which had been
whimpering. Then all grew dark once
For what seemed an eternity he lis
tened to unseen persons whispering
about him, while slowly, very slowly
the darkness lifted. Came a day
when he opened his eyes. He was ly
ing in a clean hospital with rows of
other cots on every side. Once more
his head was clear, but upon him was
the weakness of long illness. A nurse
with a red cross upon her arm pr.ssed
his way, stopped before him and
"Anil so vour mind has-awakened at

many weeks. For a', long time we
feared you would die, but it seems that

"And where am I?" he managed to

He drew her to him until her cheek
rested against his own.
"Yes, dearest. And when we had
thought all was over life was just be

paused, then spoke again.
"What day is this, Charmette?" She
laughed joyously.
"It Is all days in one; the day of
your inheritance; the day of your
birth; the day of our marriage your
marvelous Thanksgiving."
He relaxed upon his pillows and a
smile came creeping over his face.

At Thanksgiving Time One Should
Weigh His Motives and Ability to
Help His Fellow Men.
The true meaning of a national
Thanksgiving day is often misunder
stood. To some it is merely a day for
bagging a few quails, squirrels, or oth
er wild game. To others it is a day to
indulge in some recreation and enjoy
a square meal. To some it is a day
for recounting our material gain over
our less fortunate brothers during the
fleeting year. There are other various
notions as to the real purpose of a
Thanksgiving day each year.
Whatever may be the ideal purpose
of a real Thanksgiving day, it should
be one as full as possible of good
cheer, but to employ the day in re
counting our material achievements
gains and losses is a sin with the
blackest kind of complexion. The true
meaning of Thanksgiving means no
more than the duty which each indi
vidual owes to the Creator every day
in the year. It is a day when each
person should weigh his motives along
with his ability to help his fellow man
in his own individual way, and to re
turn thanks for not only the goodness
which has befallen him, but to pledge
with It an effort to strive to be a great
er blessing to the community in which
he lives, than any previous year. Ex
The Best Blessing.
We need to be on our guard at the
Thanksgiving season against an ex
aggeration of the importance of mere
ly material benefits. A big yield of
corn or wheat is not to be compared
in weighing our national blessings,
with an awakened public conscience.
Added material comforts in the home
are insignificant alongside of a new
sympathy and understanding between
the cifferent members of the family.
It is well to thank God for bountiful
harvests and comfortable homes, but
let our best gratitude be kept for the
higher things, the blessings of tht

Once upon a time Bollo's master
came to the dog house ; andl patted
RoIIq On the head as he said: "Hollo.
we must clean your house and get it
ready for winter." Now; Rollo was a
very clean dog and he bated to have
someone come into his "house, for he
knew from the past that after his
house toad been cleaned, hone of his
l et bone? were left. Early ttic next
morning the hired man came with the
broom ready to clean and whitewash
the house for the winter.
Rollo was sorry and walked down
the hill very slowly, with his big.buBhy
tail between his legs, and his biggest
bone in his mouth. At the bottom of
the hill he met Tiny Tim. the little
gnome, and Tiny Thistl ,his little fairy
friend. They were both very fond of
Rollo and went very often to visit him,
but Rollo almost never went away
from the house so they were very much
surprised to see him so far away from
home. "Where are you going?" exiled
Tiny Tim." "I don't know," said' Rol
lo. and then he told them how he was
having his house cleaned and he.want.
ea to get away unui 11 was uuisubu.
Rollo wandered off into the woods and
Tiny Tim and Tiny Thistle went bacK
home, but promised that they would
come' and see him in the morning.
The next morning, very early, thev
both started for. Rollo's house and in
a short time they were knocking at hi3
odor. Rollo had gone Into th woods
the day before and had spent all of the
time chasing rabbits and squirrels and
he didn't get hom until it was very late
and so he had gone into his house and
went to bed and hadn't woke up when
his friends came to call. He stretch -edjuui
yawned and then came to the
door to say good morning but before
he had a chance, however. Tiny Tim
looked at him and began to laugh while
Tiny Thistle crept closer to Tiny Tim.
Tiny Tim laughed until the tears roll
ed down his cheeks. At last Rollo
said. "What is the matter?" and Tiny
Tim laughed all the harder. When
Tiny Thistle heard Rollo's voice she
knew it was really Rollo and she began
to laugh, too.
After awhile Tiny Tim said, "Rollo,
zP down to the brook and see what we
are laughing at." Rollo ran as fast
as he could to the brook. Tiny Tim
and Tiny Thistle following after him.
When Rollo looked at his reflection :n
the brook he didn't know what to
make of the picture he saw, for there,
looking back at him. was a white dog
with curly hair looking back at him.
What do you think had happened?
Rollo had gone to the dog house and
rubbed against the whitewash that
wasn't dry and it had struck to his
hair and turned him white. It was
several days before he was himself
again, although his master gave him a
hot bath and tried very hard to get rt
off. No wonder his friends didn't know
him at first.
