Golden Promise of the Future.
We are thankful of the assurance
.that out of all the tumult and mad-
ness of the past years the world of
mankind is to find a life richer,
truer, grander, than any it has here-
tofore known, a life
dom, of sweeter tolerance and of a
broader goodwill and brotherhood.
And we are thankful for the
thought, amounting almost to a
settled conviction, that as a conse-
quence of the great awakening
which has come to it with all its
blood and tears and suffering, the
world will from now on have for-
ever done with every form of organ-
lied hypocrisy and oppression, will
love the truth and nothing but the
truth, and will deal justly, and love

that the present two, three and four

years, and asked increased pay for

GLAUS HAS TO
Ain't it splendid to be livin'
about this time o' year.
Just around before Thanksgiyin',
with the mornings crisp and clear;
With the children's cheek3 a-glowin',
with the future lookin' bright,
And the shops and mills a'goin' like
red blazes, day and night?
Ain't it braciu', ain't it cheeri ,
when the colts kick up their heels,
To approach the corncrib, hearin'
turkeys gobblin' for their meals?
Don't it make a fe'.low kinda satis-
fied with llfr and glad,
When it's got so hard to find a thing
that's goin' to the bad?
Ain't it fine to feel the nippin' of the
brisk breeze in your nose
When the old dead leaves go zippin'
down the lanes, in scraggly rows,
When you've hay to feed the cattle,
when you love your fellow men,
And you've money you can rattle
in your trousers, now and then?
Ain't it fine to wake from dreamin'
of the home your boyhood knew
And to find the glad sun beamin'
just the way it used to do
Long ago, about Thanksgivin', when
you'd energy to spare,
When your pa and ma were livin',
and the days were always fair?
—S. E. Kiser
why deprive the food of tasto, the
wheaten bread of leaven? We
needn't feed the garbage can nor
choke the refuse hopper; but let us
treat the inner man, and do the
job up proper!
Let's emulate the Pilgrim Dads,
by whom It was invented; although
they did not roll in scads, their con-
science was contented. Their crops
were short, the country new, 'twas
hard to make a living; November's
iRe)in\)ests fiercely blew—and yet
they kept Thanksgiving. Upon that
day they didn't think an epicure a
sinner—they gathered all their meat
and drink and had one glorious din-
ner. The Pilgrims, they were godly
meg, the times were most religious;
they thought it sinless, even then,
to found a feast prodigious. Let
us rejoice, as then they did, in sweet
and hard-earned freedom—let's hail
each woman, man and kid and take
•em in and feed 'em!— Cleveland
Mrs. J. I. Gbursey entertained
the Music club Saturday afternoon.
This was a study and program
j meeting combined.

teresting paper on "Story of Eng-

Topics" by Mrs. J. W. Reid. After
this came the program from Eng-

LET NOTHING MAIt REJOICING.
We observe Thanksgiving day 'n
keeping with the time-honored cus-
tom of the Pilgrims.
Thanksgiving day was born in the
hearts of a greatful little group of
people who had survived a harrow-
Real thanksgivings are those whlcli
come spontaneously in moments of j
gratitude for deliverance from dis-

of life or enjoyment of genuine 1
