lis Thanksgiving time
again, and we turn to
our turkeys with a pret
ty joyful and a pretty
hopeiul heart Bless
you, though, one holi
day treads so quickly
upon another's heels in
this country that the
last celebration is in
danger of tripping up
the former one. It is a
fast age, and your Un
cle Sam will no sooner get out his memo
randum book to sum up his causes for
gratitude than December shoots out
"Merry Christmas!" and the whole string
of celebrations seems to break loose. It
Is, indeed, a fast age, my children, a fast
age. Why, time was when it took three
whole days to make a feast; one to prepare
for it, one to get over it, and one to enjoy
it leisurely. We rested from Christmas
to Washington's birthday, and then had
nothing to do but get ready for the Fourth.
Ihen, Thanksgiving found us with long
ing for turkey, and the holly season sharp
ened our appetites with its savory odor
of plum pudding. '
But, bless you, my children, those good
old day are past and gone, along with
Inst year's fashions. We rush and hurry
from one festival to another, and fill up
the spaces with flag days, and arbor days,
and memorial days, and world s fairs, and
soldiers' monuments, until your Uncle
Sam is on a dash from one end of the
country to the other, trying to fulfill his
state and national engagements. And,
whenever he hopes to snatch an hour's
rest, bless youl some invitation arrives,
and he has to scamper off to lay a corner
stone, or crown an arch, or fire a salute, or
respond to a toast, until his very last suit
is in imminent danger of losing Its buttons
and fraying at the seams!
But to return to our turkey and the list
