But football and too much dinner are not, in the final analysis, all of Thanksgiving. There is a deeper. In spirational side to the day set aside through three hundred years of Amer ican history as the great national celebration of gratitude. ' Do you remember the simple story of that first Thanksgiving day as you read it. in your primary reader? And the thrill of thankfulness for national greatness and goodness that came to you as your chubby fingers drew de formed turkeys and round.-eyed Pil grim fathers on the school blackboard? It was in 1C21, the fall following the landing at Plymouth, that the Pil grims celebrated the first Thanksgiv ing day. The little colony, 'one hun dred and two souls who had fared westward from England for their con science's sake, had weathered the storms of the Atlantic and the worse hardships of a New England winter, and they had won through at last to a sort of tranquility comparatively speaking. Back from the rocky coastline of Massachusetts, with Its thunder of llmijtless waves, a'1 little group of log houses crowded together behind the tall stockade,- feeling safe in their nearness to each other. Garnered corn filled ie barns and the storerooms of the houses' were pungent with ripe apples. The colony felt firmly established in the Xew World of its seeking. Even the silent footed Indians had begun to under stand that there was room for them and for the pale faces too.

C AND THOU skalt keep tke feast of weeks unto VAX the L0"1 God witK a vtribute f 9 TreewiU Zj offering of thine hand, which thou shalt give unto the Lord thj God, according as the Lord th God hath blessed thee. And thou shalt rejoice before the Lord tlvj God, thou, and trtf son, and thj daughter, and trtf manservant, and th maidservant, and the Levite that is within fix gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the wtdctf that are among you, in the place which the Lord trr? God has chosen to place his name there. AND thou shalt remember thát thou wast a bondman in Egypt; and thou slialt observe and do these statutes. THOU shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in trr? corn and thy" wine; AND thou shalt rejoice in thy" feast, thou, and thy" son, and thy" daughter, and th? manservant, and thy maidserv ant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within th gate. SEVEN days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto he Lord thy" God, in the place which the Lord shall choose; because the Lord thy" God shall bless thee in all thy in crease, and in all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice. DEUTERONOMY. , vout Puritan spirit of the travelers in the Mayflower felt that there was sufficient cause' for thanking God. The Firt Thanksgiving. And so it was that the first day of organized thanksgiving was set. The whole little colony. In its best buckled shoes and high hats, with blunder busses across square shoulders, sallied forth from the stockaded homes' through snow to the log church, there to give community thanks for the free dom of their stern lives. Outside, the Indians crouched be hind the firs and beeches, watching; and wondering. From the Pilgrim colony, the custom' ipread to others in the Xew Englandj states. In 1630 the Massachusetts Bay colony set aside a day for thanksgiv ing, and frequently thereafter, until 16S0, when it became an annual festl-j ral in the colony. Connecticut appointed . a day ln 1639, and annually after 1647, except: in 1C75. The Dutch in Xew Xether ands set aside a day in 1644 and oc fasionally thereafter. During the War f Independence the Continental con gress appointed one or more thanks giving days each year, except In U77.: President Washington set aside Thurs day. Xov. 20, 1789, as a day-ofna-' tonal thanks, and again in 1795 he' called the country together for such, a celebration. President Madison, at' the close of the War of 1812, appointed a day. . In Xew.. York state, from 18X7 on, the festival was annual. tin some of the southern states a na tional Thanksgiving day met with op position as a relic of Puritanic bigotry, so utterly at variance with the Cav alier Ideals of the southern colonists; but by 18T)8 proclamations were issued by the governors of 25 states and two territories. Is New England Festival. Perhaps it Is natural that the South, so far in thought and experience from the colonizers of Xew England, should, even yet, be less whole-hearted in Irs celebration of Thanksgiving than is the eastern section of the United States. .With Its commemoration of hardships of 1620, with its ceremonies of the harvest. Thanksgiving is essen tially a Xew England festiva?. And to see It truly carried out, yon must see it there. In Massachusetts, it is the sigual for great family reunions. From Cali fornia, from the high seas, from the neighboring town, the sons and daugh ters and cousins and aunts and uncles foregather at the old homestead on Thanksgiving day. With the first snowfall of the season., generally scheduled for the last week in Novem ber, the roomy sleighs and the vast bearskin rugs are hauled out of their summer mothballs; and from early morning until noon, there Is n gay jingle of sleigh hells going and coming between the railroad station and the farmhouse. , - After the dinner a tremendous af fair the old people sit half dozing about the open fires, telling. stories of the New, England that Is gone. "Do you remember?" says one; and they are off In a glorious revel of recollection of their own youth, when automobiles were unknown, and Bos ton might have been 1,500 instead "of 15 miles away. The young people of the family. OTJR POLICY CH. i6.v. lo-ij. deeply wrapped in fur coats and rugs, already had dashed off along the slippery roads' to Cambridge and "The Game." The Harvard stadium on Thanks giving day was a view of serried rows of excitement never to be forgotten The grey rhythmic curves of the coli seum all flamingly gay with banners uml tlowers and girls' holiday hats. Along the Harvard section, red roses and crimson sweaters bloomed in the menagerie of fur coats and rugs. Where the Yale contingent cheered for the bulldog, the blue of Parma violets was like a twilight mist along the rows of spectators. . A whistle '-and the game is on. Tensely leaning forward, the 80,000 watch as if life and death were being decided In the arena below. At the first touchdown the winning side goes mad with Joy. Flags wave, arms and hats are promiscuously pitched about, perfect strangers pat other perfect strangers , on the back; and thrilled girls shake hands with boys they never saw before. Meanwhile the snow comes down softly, in a powdery rain, and the final goal sees frozen hands and feet res tively glad to race off to warm dormi tory teas, where the victory Is cele brated In English breakfast, or the defeat drowned In orange pekoe, cakes and laughing chatter. In Boston Thanksgiving morning great crowds fill Trinity, or whatever church has been designated for the union 'service. The pigeons in Copley square flutter over them tame friend ly doves of "peace on earth, good will to men." -Thanksgiving In New Orleans. Here in Xew Orleans several of the churches hold special union services, und the day Is commemorated in typi cal Xew Orleans fashion thanking God by giving others something for which to be thankful. Magical basket dinners, containing everything from turkey to dessert, are given to the hungry poor of the city by the Elks, the Shriners. the Salvation Army, Klngsley house and other benevolent organizations. School children remem ber, with fruit and nuts, the sufferers at the Home for Incurables.' For the Great Day Coming. -a The pumpkin pie ? It may Do seen in lt3 natural state.

The necessary delay in operations caused by the collapsing of the casing in th Adamana tokü, gives us time in which to prepare for, a rapid com- . pletion of the well upoA the arrival of new casing. At present we are overhauling everything in and about the derrick from machinery to tools that there may be nothing to hinder us in reaching the send with all possible speed as soon as the casing can be set. We want a mighty quick drilling campaign, to finish this well and everything points to this, as we are not sparing ourselves in any way to accomplish this end. We propose to bring this well in not later than January 1st., and in order to assure this we are tak ing every possible precaution against accident and general conditions. It is stated that when we reach oil it will be of a high gravity, let us suppose it will be not better than 35 gravity. This would be a far superior oil to the California product, and as far as value is concerned a 500 barrel well today is worth more than a thou sand barrel well three months ago. "Any oil here should be of high gravity, from 35 to 40 degrees Baume, and should command a good price. A steady demand for this type of oil is found on the Pacific Coast" DORSEY HACER. Geologist.
