Vol. 9 KREDS. OKLAHOMA, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 25th 1920. Number 42 Thursday Nov. 25th. 1920 WISE THE LOR Thanksgiving Song in Bos ton Harbor Rings in ; the Ears Today. V kralse ye the Lord!" Th psalm u today Still rises on our earn. JL Borne from the hills of Boston bay , Through five times fifty years, When Wlnthrop's fleet from Yarmouth crept Out to tho open main, And through the wldenlns waters wept, In April sun and rain, i "Pray to the Lord with fervent lips," i Tho leader shouted, "Pray," i And prayer arose fiom all the ships As faded Yarmoihh bay. They passed the Bcllly Isles that day, And May-daya came, and June, And thrice upon the ocean lay The full crb of the moon. And as that day, on Yarmouth bay, ifiie England sunk from view. I While yet the rippling Solent lay I In April sklea of blue. ' "Pray to the Lord with fervent lips," Each morn was shouted, "pray," And prayer arose from all the ships, As first tn Yarmouth bay; I BleTt warm the breeze o'or western seas, Through Mayttmo morns, and June, Till hailed these souls the Isles of Shoals, Low 'neath the summer moon; And as CaMj Ann arose to view. And Norman's Woe they passed, ' The wood-doves came the white mists through, And circled round each mast. "Pray to the Lord with fervent lips," Then called the loader, "Pray;" Antl prayer aioso from all the ships, As first in Yarmouth bay. Above the sea the hill-tops fair God's towers began to rise, And odors rare breathe through the air, Like balms of Paradise. Through burning skies the ospreys Hew, And near the pine-cooled shores Danced airy boat and thin cacoe, To flash of sunlit oars. "Pray to the Lord with fervent lips," The leader shouted, "Pray;" Then prayer arose, and all the ships Sailed into Boston bay. The white wtnga folded, anchors down, The eea-worn 'leet In line, Fair roe tho hills where Boston town Should rlso from clouds of pine, Fair was tho harbor, summit walled, And placid lay the sea. "Praise ye tho Lord," the leader called; "Praise yo the Lord," spake he. "Give thanks to God with fervent lips, Give thanks to God today," The anthem rose from all the ships, Safe moored In Boston bay. "Praise ye the Lord'" Primeval woods First .heard the ancient song, And summer hills and solitudes The echoes rolled along. The Red Cross flag of England blew Above the fleet that -day, While Shawmut's trlplo peaks In view In amber hazes lay. "Pralso yo the Lord with fervent lips. Praise yo the Lord today," The anthem rooo from all the ships Safe moored In Boston bay. The Arabella leads the song The Mayflower sings below. That erst tho Pilgrims boro along The Plymouth reefs of snow. Oh! never be that psalm forgot That rose o'er Boston bay, When Wlnthrop sang, and Endlcott, And Saltonstall, that day; "Prolso ye the Lord with fervent lips. Praise ye tho Lord today;" 1 And pralso arose from all the ships, Llko prayers In Yarmouth bay. That psalm our fathers sang wo sing, That psalm of peaco and wars, While o'er our heads unfolds Its wing ' Tho flag of forty stars. And while tho nation finds a tongue For nobler gifts to pray, 'Twill ever sing the song they sung That first Thanksgiving day: "Praise ye tho Lord with fervent lips, Pralso ye the Lord today;" I So rose tho song from all the ships, Safe moored In Boston bay. Our fathers' prayers have changed to psalms, As David's treasures old Turned, on tho Temple's giant arms, To Illy-work of gold. Ho! vanished ships from Yarmouth's tide, Hoi ships of Boston bay, Your prayers have crossed tho centuries wide ' To this Thanksgiving: day I Wo pray to Ood with fervent llp, We praise the Lord today, As prayors arose from Yarmouth ship, But psalms from Boston bay.

Wheat stored in bins and warehouses of the state this year is subject to more woelll infestations than for several years, according to reports from many county farm agents to the extension department of the Ok lahoma A. & M. college. Grain stored under damp conditions causes it to heat and soften, making the grain sub ject to weevil attack the agents re port, and much of the loss already sustained this year is attributed by them to improper storage. The extension department, in reply- 1 ing to the agents, suggests that in ! Testations may be controlled by dry ing; fumigating of heating the grain, I the latter method being" the most ef I fectivo. One method may be appll- able where in another case it would not be advisable, it is explained, and farmers confronted with weevil con ditions are urged to consult exports before treating grain by any measure.
