Tho Attorney poneral Is an expert

The movement to make Lloyd
Georgo practically dictator of the British
Empire ljaa ample and good precedent
In Roman history. Ordinary methods of
government must bo abandoned in times

country tomorrow. If Lloyd George
takes Asquith's place, his power will bo
Virtually absolute.
Because of the lack of rain millions
of cyclops, dlaptoml, canthocampl,

of their Inanimate bodies that has caused
the unpleasant odor In the drinking water
In recent weeks. It does not seem possl
bfe that the demise of microscopic
creatures could produce such disagree
able results, but thero are more wondeis
In the world than aro dreamed of by

THANKSGIVING
fTUlE man who Isn't glnd ho'fl nllvo and
who never celebrates his birthday in
always being shot nt by iho hero In Mr.
Chesterton's boisterous novels Just to
chjtstqn his Indifference. Wo aro In
pretty much that chastened frnmo ot
mind. America has been shot at nml tho
bullet barely missed, tho mark. Most of
us aro rather thankful.
To bo really humble Irf to bo something
of a poet, or at least a pretty big man.
Wo havo been welcomed by pioclamatlon
to n fenst of humility. Turkey Is far
from depressing nnd mlnco plo In not
humbla pie. But It Is not for the avorngo
mortal to lecturo tho average mortnl
nbotit prayer nnd fasting. "Tho people"
havo boon urged to think over their
cranberries of others' sufferings; but
most persons are not so proud on to think
of thcmselvci as "tho people," but aro
content to rcmnln plain folks.
Thanksgiving Is nobody's business,
generally speaking. It Is each Individ
ual's affair. Each ono suffers for hln own
thanklcssness and puntshet himself
Indirectly for his own shortcomings. As
for alms for tho needy, "Lot your light
so Bhlno" is spoken to tho congregation
as a mass; but "Lot not thy left hand
know what thy rlsht hand dooth" Is
spoken to tho Individual giver. Tho
tragedy of alms is that tho poor givo most
of them though nobody tells them to.
Tho poor aro too busy Just now feeding
themselves and each other and working
overtlmo at r;ood wages to think about
Belgium, Poland, Armenia and Serbia.
Tlmt Is tho privilege of tho rich.
But this Is not alms. Fancy any ono
daring to think of a gift to Franco as
aimsi These little- nations whom wo havo
helped, but not enough, aro worthy to
bo tanked with Franco. Of course tho
bcit thing wo, could glvo them would bo
pcaco; but wo havo found to our humilia
tion thnt to keep muttering ponce, pcaco,
when thoro Is no peace, Is futile. If tho
alternnttvo Is to conquer Europe with
kindness, wo havo pot been very Impres
sive. But tlint again is up to the Indi
vidual Imagination. Wo havo given some
few thousand young lives. Volunteers,
soldiers of fortune, havo henid tho call
and died in tho trenches or fallen flaming
from foreign skies for nn idea. It may
make, somo women thankful to think
thnt their sons did not get Into tho world's
quarrel. It may make somo men
thoughtful.
CORNELL
IT WAS a happy chanco for Penn'nnd
Cornell nnd for football at Inrge that
brdught thoso two colleges together to
an annual holiday rivalry. For many
years the Big Four--Yale, Harvard,
Princeton nnd Ponhsylvnnla wero hurl
ing cries of rufllanlsm and professional
ism nt each other. It was significant
that these cries began to dlo down about
iho tlmo that there was no longer a Big
Tour loft they'd all been trounced by
smaller colleges.
But over all theso years thero was
never moro than a trace of anything
but gentlemanly mutual esteem betweon
our owri Thanksgiving Day combatnnto.
This game has beon plnycd as If It wero
betweon teams of two different chapters
of tho same fraternity. It makes It all
the better pow that Cornell has as much
chance to win as Ponn. It speaks welt
for both that tho long unbroken string
of defeats Cornell suffered hore never
left any soreness on the ono sldo or
gloating on tho other.
Tho roar of welcome that comes from
the Pennsylvania stands ns Cornell runs
on tho Held Is a heartfelt greeting to as
good sportsmen as thero aro In tho col
lego world.
BEAUTY IN COINS
ART Is ft mummy when It Is made for
the museum called an art gallery. Its
primary destination should be tho hands
of the people, and It is only the acci
dents of time and use that send It else
where. The chief crlmo of our ago has
been to hand over "tho arts" to tho
painters and musicians. Tho result was
that we got some flna pictures and
symphonies with some mighty ugly
crockery, iron railings, metal mugs and
coins. An art that is not In dally use
dies.
Tho recovery of our corns Is a notable
advance toward a democratic art. Peo
ple are still talking about the new dimes.
The new half dollars, soon to be out, are
beautiful, if they realize their description.
Liberty represented "In ft full-length fe
male figure, enveloped In tho folds of
the Stars and Stripes, progressing In full
stride toward the dawn of a now day,"
should be much better than the largo
characterless head now filling up
the
obverse of our half dollars.
The artist chose bis model with a view
to poise nnd carriage, as well as perfec
tion of profile. This Is breaking away
from the old rut of thinking first of a,
pretty face. Whistler once drew a por
trait of a. girl and sent it to an exhibi
tion with the face scratched out, because
he knew too many persons would only
Jopk at his work to sea if the girl were
pretty or not. It was tardily learned
that the flowinr folds of garments, the
gesture and spirit, of the pose gave work
more meaning than the representation of
mere fleah. and feature. It ht not de
tracting from the honor that is Mrs
Stevens's in having been chosen for tho
model to say that nowadays It is the
artist ratnw Own the modal, y,-ip uwkw j

FIRST NATIONAL
The Proclamation Was Issued by
While, It Was Sitting at York
From Unfitting Recreation
YORK, rich in Its historic nssoclatloni,
enjoji tho rare distinction, not gener
ally known, of having been the homo of tho
original of the first two national Thanks
ghlng proclamations. Tho first wns Issued
by Congress, In session hero, to com
memorate tho victory of Saratoga during
tho Revolution Tho other proclamation
was Issued by Abraham Lincoln, following
the declslvo battle at Gettysburg
Georgo R. TrowoII. curator and librarian
of tho York County Historical Society, whlio
making Investigations prevlous to tho pub
lication of his history of the Continental
Congress at York, Pa., found the original
proclamation sent ,out from York In the
archives of the Department of State at
Washington.
When General Howe, In 1777, landed at
the head of Elk River, with nn army ot
18,000 men, he began a moement toward
Philadelphia. As the city was threatened
with an Invasion ot the British foe, Con
gress, then sitting In Independence Hall,
voted unanimously to adjourn to meet In
Lancaster, then the largest Inland town In
trjp United States. The thlrty-slx members
In Congress from tho original thirteen
States rode on horseback to Bethlehem, and
from there went to Lancaster. Only one
day's session was held In that borough, and
for better protection Congress resolved to
move to York, on Uie west side of the Sus
quehanna River.
Congress held Its first session In York on
September 30. 1777. At that time, In tho
lnneuaro of John Adams, a member of Con
gress from Massachusetts, all was dark nnd
gloomy. The news of the lctory of Gates
In capturing the entire army of 6000 men
under Burgoyne, marching from Canada to
ward New York, then In the hands of the
enemy, was first brought to Congress at
York by a nephew of Oeneral Israel Put
nam. The offlplal account of tho surrender
at Saratoga was brought to York by Colonel
Wilkinson, an aide on the staff of General
Gatea. Congress remained In session In
York nine months, or from September 80,
1777, to June 37, 177, wuue wasningwn
was at Valley Forge
On October 81 President Laurens ap
pointed nichard Henry Lee, of Virginia;
Samuel Adams, ot Massachusetts, and Gen
eral Roberdeau, of Pennsylvania, a com
mittee of Congress to draft a national proc
lamation of Thanksgiving, the first In the
history of the American Republic This hls
torlo document was written at York by that
eminent Virginian, Richard Henry Lee, who
lesss than two years before had moved in
Congress, at Philadelphia, that "these
United States are and of right ought to be
free and Independent States." and himself
became one of the signers of the Declara
tion pf Independence. On November 1, 1777,
the committee appointed to prepare a rec
ommendation to set apart a day of publlo
thanksgiving brought In U report, which
was agreed to unanimously. The proclama
tion Is remarkable in language and thought
Besides breathing forth a spirit of lofty
patriotism. It also contains a deep and
fervent reHllous sentiment. Following is
the proclamation In full;
Forasmuch as It is the indispensable
duty ot all men to adore the superin
tending providence of Almighty God, to
acknowledge with gratitude their ob
ligations for benefits received, and to
imploro such further blessings as they
stand n need of; and It having pleased
Him in HU abundant mercy, not only
to continue to us the Innumerable boun
ties cf His common providence, but also
to smile upon ua in the prosecution of
a, just and necessary war for the de
fenso and establishment of our inalien
able Tights and liberties, particularly
in that He bad been pleased in so great
measure to prosper the means used
for the support ot our troops and to
crown our arms with most signal suc
cess. It is, therefore, recommended to
tho Legi&UUurtt of executive powers of
tfctt United StotM to set apart Thurs
day, th Hth of JOtsABibw text. fe '
Thyaolf and thy belongings
Aro not thino own so proper as to waste
Thyself upon thy virtues, they on thee.
Heavon doth with us as wo with torches do,
Not light them for themselves; for if our virtues
Did not go forth of us, 'twero all. aliko
As if wo had them not. Spirits nro not finely touch'd
But to fine issues, nor Nuturo never lends
Tho smallest scruple of her excellence
But, liko n thrifty goddess, sho determines
Herself tho glory of n, creditor,
Both thanks and use.
