' "FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1902.'
Of lute years Thanksgiving lms be
come with most of us little more than
an occasion for indulging in unlimited
turkey and plum pudding, perhaps go
ing to the matinee or a football game or
some other sort of junketing in the af
ternoon. We scarcely realize the deep
solemnity of the first Thanksgiving day
ever celebrated on this continent by our
stern Puritan forefathers from whom
we inherit both Btrenuous disposition
and our dyspepsia. The first Thanks
giving oecurred in the Plymouth colony
soon after the landing of the Pilgrims,
in 1621. The little harvest of the set-,
tiers had been successfully gotten in,
the Indians were for the moment peace
ful, and everything looked brighter and
more promising to the little community
than it had for a long time, so a day of
thanksgiving to God for his great mer
cies, was appointed. Of the best hunts
men of the colony four were singled out
by the governor, who sent them "fowl
ing, that there might be wherewithal
. for a feast of rejoicing." The game
they brought back with them was the
wild turkey; hence the bird whose sov
ereignty on that day has for over two
hundred years been undisputed. It is
believed by the best authorities that the
first celebration took place in October,
as it was out of doors and lasted nearly
a week. Every twelvemonth or soother
days of thanksgiving followed for 47
vonra lint. At no oi'vpn HmA nr Rpaonn

Each congregation appointing the day
that it deemed most convenient. Some
times it occurred in the spring, after a
hard winter; more often in the fall, to
return thanks for a generous harvest

The quarterly of the Oregon Histor
ical Society, No. 3, Vol. 3, September,
1902, lies upon our table. As usual it
is full of interest to all who cure to
know anything about the beginnings
of things in Oregon, and what good
citizen does not? The contents are as
follows: Sheep husbandry iii Oregon,
by Hon. John Minto, a pioneer of 1844;
The Origin aud History of the VVillam
ette Woolen Factory, the first on the
Pacific coast, by the late L. E. Pratt,
who constructed the factory and man
aged it for several years; The American
Fur. trade in the Far West, a review of
the recent work by Capt. Hiram M.
Chittenden, U. S. corps of engineers,
by Mrs. Frances Fuller , Victor; Reiui-
niscencesot James Jory, a pioneer of
1847, and D. K. Warren, a pioneer of
1852, by II. 8. Ly man; Iieniineseeiices
of Mrs. Tabitha Brown, a pioneer of
1846, best known as "Grandma" Brown,
who taught the first school at Forest
Grove, ont of which has grown the
Pacific university of today, by Mrs.
Jane Kinney Smith. In addition there
are three interesting documents: (1)
Relating to the formal taking of the
Columbia river August 10, 1818, by
Capt. J. Biddle, U.-8. N.; (2) Letter of
March 4, 1843, published in the Nation
al Intelligencer, Washington, D. C, re
lating to Oregon; (3) Extract from a
lecture by George L. Hilliard in Hart
ford, Conn., in 184 opposing the idea
of the U. S.givlug up its claim to the
Oregon country. Every copy of this
quarterly should be carefully preserved.
In a few years it will become invalua
ble to every student. It is sent to a
large number of historical societies and
public libraries in Eastern states, and
in this way is largely assisting in mak
ing historic Oregon better known (o
the people of our land. Any one desir
ing to secure copies can do so by
applying to Geo. H. Rimes, Assistant
Secretary of the Society, City Hall,
Portland, Oregon.
A good story on Uncle Joe Cannon is
revived now that he has won his victory
as a candidate for speaker. ' He arose to
speak in congress once and rather sen
tentiously remarked : "I have lived long
enough" when cries of "good," "hear
and applause began. The cheering and
chaffing continued until he took his seat
without ever getting beyond the one
statement. He is a very nervous and
energetic speaker, which allowed Sunset
Cox to get the laugh on him once. Mr.
Cox was awarding time to various
Bpeakers ot the close of a debate when
Mr. Cannon asked to speak. "Put your
hands in your pockets," said Mr. Cox.
Mr. Cannon complied. "Now you may
have as much time to speak as yon keep
them there." He had talked about a
minute when out both came iu an ex
plosive gesture, and the speaker rapped
rum down with "Time s up."
Congress meets next Monday. This
w ill be the short session of the fifty
seventh congress, ending March 4
Should there be a special session called,
Representative - elect Williamson will
take his seat. If there is no special set
sion, Mr. Williamson will take his sent
at the regular session in Hecenilier, 1903,
18 months after his election. Mr. Will
iamson is still a member of the Oregon
state senate and will take his seat in
"that body when the legislature meets.

The apple growers' congress at St
Louis last week adjourned until Novem
b?r, WOti, when the second annual con
gress will be held in St. Ijjuis. Nearly
two hundred apple growers were in at
tendance. A committee was appointed
to devise a better plan of shipping ap
pies. It is proposed to adopt some
method which will do away with the
shipment of apples in barrels, as it is
claimed the latter wav causes heavv
losses to the1 shipper.
The Oregon agricultural college ar
n'Minres a special dairy course of eight
weeks from January 7 to February 23.
Tne course is designed to "familiarize
I'udenUwith the modern form of dairy
apparatus and teach the underlying
principles of the production of milk into
butter and cheese." It will be open to
all persons of good moral character who
have a common school education and
who are not less than 18 years of age.
Hood River has much to be grateful
for at this Thanksgiving. We live in
the best part of Oregon, and Oregon is
the best and most favored part of the
Union. We are blessed with a mild
and healthy climate, where crops never
fail ; good citizens, mostly of the same
political faith; nt costly litigation; no
criminal cases ; no poverty ; everybody
employed all contented and happy. If
not contented and happy we should be.
We can all cheerfully obey the presi
dent's proclamation, cease from labor
and gather at the places of worship and
give thanks for the blessings we re
ceive. We cab divide our stores with
less fortunate neighbors in other parts,
and enjoy our turkey, chicken or corn
beef and cabbage, as the case may, to
day in true thankfulness.
General DeWet is writing a - book,
'The Struggle Between the Boer aad
Briton." A summary of advance sheets
says the work dispassionately, digni-
fiedly and frankly reproaches England
for provoking the war and for commit
ting cruelties in conducting it, but the
author does not spare his own people,
of whom he says the noble characters
were extremely rare among the fighting
Boer. Stupidity, cowardice, lack of
discipline, faithlessness and abominable
treason were to be met with among
them to an appalling degree. Had th$re
not been so many traitors in their own
camp the Boers would never have been
so utterly defeated.
The state horticultural commissioner
of Washington ordered 50,000 fruit trees
destroyed that were shipped from New
York state by Brown Bros. The trees
were infested with wooly aphis, crown
galls and root galls. Had the trees not
been examined and been allowed to scat
ter over the state, the commissioner says
it would have cost the state millions of
dollars to have restored the tone of the
orchards to where they are today.
The Crook county commissioners have
withdrawn the bounty on coyotes. The
Crook County Journal favors the repeal
of the scalp bounty law, or else, it says,
there should be a bounty given on rab
bit scalps. The rabbits have increased
wonderfully since the scalp bounty law
has . been in operation. The Journal
rightly Claims that farmers deserve pro
tection as well as the sheepmen. ,

Meacham, Or., built by the O. R. & N.

Back to Old Hood Elver.
(Dedicated to an absent friend.)
I'm goin' back to old Hood Htver.
Where the big red applet grow;
Where autumn leave to gold are turnln'
And trout fishln's good, you know.
I spend Thanksglvln' times with mother
On the dear old homestead farm,
Where every cranny, nook and corner
moms ror ma some special charm.
Such dinners no one else can compound
Every dish la perfect, quite;
And the rich contents I shall sample,
Knock a apell of blues to flight.
Old china, glass and snowy linen
I have seen since boyhood days, "
Where back again my mind now wanders
And to ma's old fashioned ways.
There'll be fresh oytrs and erlsp eel'ry,
Entrees season 'd well with spice,
Fat roasted dock an' chicken salad,
Dresstn' fixed up awful nice.
Onions stewed with rml cream gravy,
Corn and sweet potatoes brown;
Tomatoes, turnips, beets and parsnips,
'Alnt so hard to choke 'em down.
A young turkey gobbler's waltln'
For a tale he knows not what.
An' the big plum puddln's ready,
Full of raisins an' what not.
E'en now I seem to taste the sweetness
Of the ateaniln', fragrant sauoe
Ma's "Boston beans" are simply perfect.
An' ber brown bread Is the boss.
The old older preaa, home, Is drtppln'.
With a tin cap hanglu' near;
Ev'ry swallow of the nectar
Fills the quarter's soul with cheer.
An' them round, old-fashioned crullers
Mother made me when a boy.
She knows I've not forgot their fondness,
A n' to please me !s her Joy. "
Mother's thick pumpkin plea are golden.
An' I have the lion's share;
I do full Justice to her cook In',
Good as any monarch's fare.
O, them short-cakes of luscious berries.
Smothered In sore Jersey cream;
I tell you, then, life's worth the llvln',
An' IU "good things" alnt no dream.
There'll be fruitcake crom'd with mysteries.
Which I'll never try to solve;
But its savor I've not forgot tea,
To make ma smile Is my resolve.
Cranberry 'aits an' aauoe of apples,
Pickles, Jams and jells galore;
Many fix Ins I aunt mention
Will be 'mnngst that goodly Store.
( s'pose yon think I have forgotten
The most honored dish of all
fumpkln aana boiled down la 'lames,
Juki as good, now lam tall;
Flakey mince plea, too, cut a figure
In the dear old-time repast.
Oee hoiMter! but I'm gettln' hungry;
Wish this train run twice as fast.
Dear mother's gettln' old and feeble.
An' her hair hs tamed to grey;
But she'll ne'er forget ber "sonny,-'.
Who beside her Med to play.
She humors me well n'.gh to spollln'
Forgets the years which Intervene.
An' to the past keeps oft referrln'.
To bright childhood's happy scenes.
I never throw It np to wlfey
How my mother need to eook,
But I keep up a lively thinkln'
How that sumptuous spread will look.
My empty stomach la a fnawln.
Hope we'll get there pretty soon;
Why, here we are now at the station.
And it's half an bour till noon.
