O Bird of Joy
Much More Than Material Are
the Blessings for Which We
Now Give Thanks.
■^T IS to be hoped that this
Thanksgiving will not be a
pa pm hottriny, and that
those wh° do render thanks
will do so not as a heathen
philosopher, boasting that he
is not as other men, but in greater hu
mility because he has perhaps been
more greatly blessed than others.
Outside of the many material bless
ings that have come to the American
people during the past year, which are
good in so much as they contribute to
wholesome human happiness, there is
reason for the people of this country
upon this Thanksgiving day to he un
usually thoughtful concerning their
lilac«. In the world, and to remember
how this eminence has been obtained.

hand of Providence shaping the des

Inn'.ignrated this very Thanksgiving
holiday. It was for the love of the
service of Go«l that liberty was estab
lished in America, and it was this lib
erty that has been the basis of our na
tional greatness and which is to be
the political salvation of the world.
America cannot look back upon Its
history without seeing God, and by
taking thoneht cannot fall to acknowl
edge its gratitude for all his benefits.
With that stage of our development
laisse«] we are now permitted to enter
upon that new era when America par

justice, ever hateful to God, and to
