"Then," said the Pilgrim Fathers, "let us have a great Thanksgiving, party to
celebrate the plenty of this land. And let it always be observed in future years in
honor of a country where no men are slaves; where there is always enough and more
for everyone to eat and where no one wants and no one has to work beyond his
strength. And on this day let no one go to his toil ever, but let him rest and feast
and be merry because he has prospered so wonderfully through the year."
Thus spake the first of the pioneers to settle in New England sorm 300 years
ago, and thus was born the first of our own American national holiday! THANKS

' Prrsldont J. C. Foley of the Duma
Flour Milling Co. isfoma us that the
mill will begin operatloBs at once on
a share plan with the producers. The
company haa not sufficient funds to
take care of the grata crop and It la
impossible to borrow It under pre
sent conditions with a declining
wheat market According to quota
tions wheat prices are dropping sev
eral polntH each day therefore It
would not be business for the local
concern to buy, especially to borrow
th capital.
Mr. Foley states the mill will take
the wheat from the farmers and
grind it on a basis of one-eighth,
giving the producer in return seven
elKhtii of the flour, and by products.
This spomM n vory fair proposition
und as small a toll an onu quld ex
pect thu mill to operate upon.
