Our country has been signally fa vored In many ways, The round of the Beasons has brought rich har vests. Our industries have thriven far beyond our domestic needs, the products of our labor are daily find ing enlarged markets abroad. We have been free from the curses of pesti lence, of famine and of war. . .

Strong in the sense of our own right and inspired by as strong a sense of the rights of others, we live in peace and harmony with the world. Rich in the priceless possessions and abun dant resources wherewith the un stinted bounty of God has endowed us, we are unselfishly glad when oth- . er peoples pass onward to prosperity - and peace. That the great privilege we enjoy may continue and that each coming year may see our country more firmly established in the regard and esteem of our fellow-nations, is the prayer that should rise In every .thankful heart. Wherefore, I, William Howard Taft, President of the United States of America, designate. Thursday, the 30th of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving' and prayer, and I earn estly call on my countrymen and on all that dwell under the flag of our beloved country, then to meet in their accustomed places of worship to Join in offering praise to Almighty God and devout thanks for the loving mercies He has given us. In witness thereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the City of Chicago, this 30th day of October, In the year of Our Lord one thousand nine hundred and eleven, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and thirty-sixth.

The proprietor of the most promi nent hotel In the town of S , Ky., Is a man of a very economical na ture, In fact he Is an. extremist In this feature. He has a six-year-old, red-headed son that didn't Inherit his father's economical disposition. Re cently the son was very much In need of a five-cent piece for soda water purposes. He went Into the dining rom, where he was free from obser vation, and removed his shoe strings and placed them In his hip pocket for future reference. Returning to the office he approached ' his father and said: "Pa, give me a nickel to get me a pair of shoe strings." , His father glanced down at his son's shoes, then turning around ap proached the office safe and opened It, in silence. He took out the cash box and raising the lid extracted n pair of new shoe strings, which he handed to his son without a word. The youngster took the strings with a crestfallen air and then to the amuse ment of the onlookers exclaimed: "Stung again, by granny." BABY'S TERRIBLE SUFFERING "When my baby was six months old, his body was completely covered with large sores that seemed to Itch and burn, and cause terrible suffering. The eruption began In pimples which would open and run, making large sores. His hair came out and finger nails fell off, and the sores were over the entire body, causing little or no sleep for baby or myself. Great scabs would come off when I removed his shirt f "We tried a great many remedies, but nothing would help him, till a friend Induced me to .try the Cutlcura Soap and Ointment. I used the Cutl cura Soap and Ointment but a short time before I could see that he was Improving, and In six weeks' time he was entirely cured. He had suffered about six weeks before we tried the Cutlcura Soap and Ointment, although we had tried several other things, and doctors, too. I think the Cutlcura Rem edies will do all tb&t is claimed for them, and a great deal more." (Signed) Mrs. NobleTubman, Dodson, Mont, Jan. 28, 1911. Although Cutl cura Soap and Ointment are sold by druggists ana dealers everywhere, a simple of each, with 82-page book, will be mailed free on application to "Cutlcura."
