"President Harding Vetoes Bon-
us Bill"—News from Washington.
I remember the dawn of that
cold, rainy day,
Our first time over the top,
How for hours we crouched in
mud of the trench,
With our hearts going flippy-
And at last the word cam*—and
over we went,
Where the bullets whistled and
And shrapnel screamed 'round
like demons from hell,
But no one put a veto on that.
I remember a night, in a thick,
When the Boche gave a chlor-
ine gas ball;
We couldn't fight back, we were
held in reserve -
Had to stay there and take it,
And thicker and thicker the stink-
ing fumes grew
While we lay there sprawling
Choking and cursing, but hold-
ing our ground;
And no one put a veto on that.
I remember the nights when with
pick and spade
We scooped shallow graves for
No songs could be sung—there
were snipers around,
Not even a prayer could be said
We had to work fast for with
coming of day
The guns would start in to
Without coffins or blanket.; we
laid them away,
But no one put a veto on that.

The Oil Siluaiicin
A wire was received today from
the men who are backing the
drilling operations saying they
had some large casing available
and if the block of leases were
closed here they would ship.
At present there are a few leas-
es out of the block which must
come in before anything will be
done toward erecting a rig.
If you own land within the
block and have not yet signed
your lease you had bettt r do so
at once or the deal might fall
thru as (he men who are inter-
ested might pick up another deal
and quit this one.
It wont cost you a cent to sign
up a lease and you will not get a
test here unless the blocks asked
tor are completed. The men
who arc.1 backing the proposition
have put up a bond with the
leases in a local bank and will
start operations within sixty days
after the leases are obtained.

Our NalionaS Holiday
There are holidays and holi-
days. Christmas and New Years
are cosmopolitan are the prop-
erty of no particular people, but
yet are joyously observed by
inanv. But Thanksgiving is
I purly an American holiday, orig-
inal in conception and growing
from a small beginning until it
| has reached the dignity of a
national event, lis first cele-
bration was by tht; Plymouth
colony in l(i21 those sturdy
pioneers whose piety was as pro-
nounced as their pluck' who hon-
ored themselves by honoring
their Diety. The custom soon
became more general, spreading
over all the New England states
After the revolutian it gradually
extended to the middle states
and later to the west, growing
more slowly in the south. In
18(i3 the patriotic Lincoln for-
ever established it in the list of
holidays l>y proclaiming it a day
of Thanksgiving, his action be-
ing followed bj the individual
proclamation of the governors ot'
the states, who named the day.
Since then, by common consent,
tht! first announcement ot the
day ia found in the president's
proclamation, and the day so
named is also named by the
A commendable feature of this
holiday is a practical benevolence
which has become very notable.
Poor people to whom a good
dinner is a rarity, are hunted
out and in an unostentatious
way are helped to properly ob-
serve the day, so far as its festive
features are concerned. The
sick and suffering are remember-
ed in various ways. The home-
less are, for the day, made mem-
bers of some hospitable house-
hold where they can join in its
pleasures. Altogether, this is
perhaps its best feature. There
is no pleasure so lasting, none
which affords such real joy as
that which comes to us from the
knowledge that we have done a
real kindness to some of the suf-
fering children of earth in some
way alleviated their sorrows or
eased their pains.
Last but not least the devo-
tional spirit which is the impell-
ing motive of the day, is en-
couraged and developed, we learn
to be more contented with our
lot, thankful for what we have
and hopeful for the future.
His Prayer Got De Turkey
Years ago an old darky whose
master had some fine fat turkeys,
made up his mind that he must
have one of those turkeys, and,
as he tells the story, he set to
work to get it by pisayer. '1
prayed to de Lord," he said, "dat
he would send me one of dem
turkeys, I prayed dat way morri-
in' and ebenin' for a week, but
still de turkey didn't coine, and
I tells you my mouth was jes a-
waterin' for it. So I says to my-
self I must change dat prayer,
and so I prayed one ebenin' dat
de Lord would send me after de
turkey, and, bretherns, dat turk-
ey was here before daylight.
