THE INDIANS' CELEBRATION
OF THANKSGIVING DAY.
HID Interest in Thanksgiving day
nnd its observance is Just an In
tenso these days among tho rcscr-
ration Indians as In collcgo towns
where great football games aro sched
uled to occur. Especially is this tme
in the southwest, where tho Indians
haro had an opportunity to become
thoroughly civilized of lato years. The
white people find no moro enjoyment
in this day of universal cheer than do
these same dusky redskins.
It Is n day of feasting, playing and
gaming, with a big dnnco at night.
Such sport comes only once a yenr to
them nowadays, when they have had
to forsake tho scalping knife for the
plow. Their wild naturo revolted at
the Idea of work, nnd it has been wltli
much dldlculty that tho government
agents havo made farmers out of the
young braves. A. day of rest and
amusement Is considered good for their
better nature, nnd tho government au
thorities are willing thai Thanksgiving
day shall become a festal time for the
reservation wards of the nation.
The Klowas and Comanche, who not
long ago were placed on allotments,
will havo forsaken many of their wild
plans of amusement this Thanksgiving,
owing to the fact that they havo been
cut off the free Ht of beef issues.
They havo arranged to draw grass
money on Thanksgiving, and u goodly
portion of this will be spent In pur
chasing food for a grand feast. At
night they will take part In a green
t corn dance, at which thanks will be of
fered to the Great Spirit for the good
crops which they have had the last sea
son. The spirit of thankfulness per
vades the Indian celebrations.
Tho Osages hold a big feast at Paw-
huska, their capital city. All mem-
hers of tho tribe are Invited to take i
part In the festivities. At the begin- j
nlng and end of each month and there '
are many the aged missionary who
lives among them is invited to deliv
er a short prayer, thanking the Great '
j Spirit for tho good things which the
I agent has sent them. The food Is cook- I
cd by the squaws, and, while it could
be prepared in n much cleaner and
more tasteful manner, tho cooking is
an improvement over that of a few
years ago. With this cheer they give
thanks that "by tho goodness of God
they were far from want" New York
Reflections of a Thankful Pessimist.
Did you ever think, when it's rain- j
incr and snowing at the same time and
the streets form a dainty swamp of
slush and tho chills are running up
and down nnd back, how very much
vcm mTe (o be thankful for? On such
occasions look in your empty coal bin
nnd fold your arms in content
True, the coal bin is dark nnd dank.
But think how much blacker it would
be If tbi conl were there!
It's the little things that make or mar
one's happiness; therefore the less cool
one has the happier he should be.
For such is logic.
A noted philosopher has said, "The
coal bin is a has-been."
Shivers are the very soul of comfort.

'' Inasmuch as you have filled
The needs of him that willed,
In that measure be you thrilled
In your thanks.
Inasmuch as you have given
In the aid of what has striven
Upward, so be you, too, driven
By your thanks.
As you lifted you may rise,
You may soar beyond the skies,
Even with the thought that flies,
With your thanks.

THE SEAL OF

I Thanksgiving Day
O the grand old pilgrim father
William Bradford, governor of
the original New England colo
nies, bekings the honor of lclng
the first to proclnlin In America a gen
eral thanksgiving day which should be
n festival as well as a day of thanks
giving. The month of November, 1G23.
had been n weary one to the bitterly
tried pilgrims. Their months of toll
and patient wnltlng for tho ingathering
of the harvest seemed about to end in
the deepest disappointment. The earth
was parched, the whole land cried out '
for rain, and the crops were being
ruined for lack of moisture. It waa
under these depressing conditions that
Pilgrim Father Bradford called together
the little band of settlers nnd set apart
n day to be devoted to fasting nnd
prayer that tho glassy skies might be
come cloud covered nnd the windows
of heaven bo opened to give life to the
thirst dying Acids.
It did not look promising for a day
of thanksgiving, and yet circumstances
changed the day npiwlntcd for fasting
and prayer to one of rejoicing, feasting
nnd thankfulness. The pilgrims were
in the very act of praying for rain

when rain came. It cmue In such
floods and It came so opportunely that
tho pilgrim fathers were convinced
that Trovldence had smiled on the little
band of forlorn men, women and chil
dren who, driven from their own homes,
had been forced to pitch their tents on
the wild and Inhospitable shores of n
William Bradford In his proclama
tion had called tho day a feast of
thanksgiving, nnd the best hunters in
the colony had been scouring the ad
jacent woods for wild turkeys and
other game to supply tho wants of tho
colonists and their guests. The
kitchens of the pilgrims were crude
and rough, but the good dames did
their best, and the result was a repast
satisfying and sumptuous enough for
the most exacting. Tho menu con
sisted of roast turkey dressed with
beechnuts, venison pasties such as
the pilgrim mothers knew so well how
to make, savory meat stow.3 with
dumplings of barley flour, clam chow
dor served in enormous bowls with
sea biscuits floating on the surface,
roasts of nil kinds, broiled flsh, salads,
cakes and plum porridge. Lastly,
there was a bountiful supply of
oysters, the contribution of Massasoit
and his ninety warriors to the llrst
Thanksgiving bill of fare. Tho great
est dinner of tho festival was given on
Saturday, the last day of tho celebra
tion. History chronicles that it was
ono of tho loveliest days of tho In
dian summer, and so mild was tho
weather that tho good pilgrim dames
wero uble to set their tables In the
open air, and In tho primitive forests
in tho wildest country, In a new and
unexplored world, was celebrated the
brightest and most Joyous TnankBgir
