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 1 ' c - - - - 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 McCall's Magazine. 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. January 12, 1903. 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. , The ' Log Cabin eating house at Meacham, Or., built by the O. R. & N. and presided over by Grandma Munro, was burned last week. Loss about $10,- 000. Of course the company will re build; the traveling public who have had a taste of Grandma Munro's meals would never forgive the company if it didn't. A Sherman county young man en gaged to be married ordered engraved on the wedding ring "From A. to Z." from Arthur to Zenobia and the stupid jeweler put in the whole alphabet. The engagement was then declared off by MiBS Zenobia. 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. M. C Hood River, November V, 1902. Always Sets the Price for Holiday Goods.

There seems to be a scarcity of school teachers all over Oregon". The scarcity is accounted for by the fact that teach ers' salaries are not so good as salaries in other vocations. The country dis tricts, where salaries are lowest, are suffering the most from the dearth of teachers. - " The Salem Journal, November 19, wired Secretary Cortelyou inviting the president to come to Oregon to hunt bear, assuring him he could kill from one to three bears a day, any day in the year, in the mountains of Lincoln county " ' ' 1 '' A party of three Pendleton hunters killed 242 wild geese in the wheat fields near Arlington in three days last week. The birds readily sold for 50 cents apiece in Pendleton. Thirteen hundred fires were caused in New York last year .by parlor matches.

Lee was so dumbfounded with the man's audacity that he forgot to call a cop and give the confidence man iu charge. He showed up there never more. fTlmbor land, Act June, 1878. NOTICE FOU PUBLICATION.
