THE DAY OF THANKSGIVING.
Henry Ward Beechrr.
Thanksgiving day is the one nation-
al festival which turns on home life.
It is not a day of ecclesiastical saints.
It is not a national anniversary. It is
not a day celebrating a religious event.
It is a day of Nature. It is a day of
thanksgiving for the year's history.
And it must pivot on the household. It
is the one great festival of our Amer-
ican life that pivots on the household.
A typical Thanksgiving dinner repre-
sents everything that has grown in ail
the summer, fit to make glad the heart
of man. It is not a riotous feast. It is a
table piled high, among the group of
rollicking young and the sober Joy of
the old with the treasures of the grow-
ing year, accepted with rejoicings and
interchange of many festivities as a
token of gratitude to Almighty Ood.
Remember Gods bounty in the year.
String the pearls of his favor. Hide
the dark parts, except so far as they
are breaking out in light! Give this
one day to thanks, to Joy, to gratitude!

thlag that has bcea ssid on the same
subject la oar own day, and yet many,
as thsy look bsck upon the history of
the past fifty-seven years, will be apt
to regard the fears of Howard Mann as
absurd. How small seem the vast for
dunes of 1849 ss compared with the
vast fortunee of 190A. Tet the Individ-
ual fertunea of today are not much
greater in proportion to toe aggregate
wealth of the country of that day. But
formidable aa appeared to Mr. Mann
the Individual fortunes of 1849. the
course of history shows that they did
not retard the growth of the country
in liberty or prosperity. In spite of
Mr. Mann's assertion that vast for-
tunes are misfortunes to the state, the
country haa made important progress.
From this it might fie argued that
thg fears of the vast fortunes of today
are as groundless as the fears of Hor-
ace Mann in 1849. It might be argued
(hat the country will continue to pro-
gress In every important respect in
spite of these vast fortunes, In spite
of this "feudalism of capital," Just as
it has progressed during the past half
Nevertheless Horace Mann's fears of
the vast fortunes of his day. Just, as
Theodore Roosevelt's fears of the un-
regulated business use of the swollen
fortunes of today, are from a larger
standpoint entirely sound. The fact
that these fortunes have not proved
great misfortunes to the state, may ne
due to the fact that such men as Hor-
ace Mann and Theodore Roosevelt
were aroused to the danger of the Ir-
responsible power which they conrer.
We may learn much from the words
of Horace Mann. We may learn .that
It Is natural. It Is inevitable. It is, in
the largest aspect of the case, of na-
tional benefit, that there should be a
fear of colossal accumulations of
wealth. Because such men as Horace
Mann spoke the words that have been
quoted in 1849, it became Impossible
for irresponsible wealth to work any

pie; and in like manner It is because
