The works of religion and charity have everywhere been manifest. Our country, through all its extent, has been blessed with abundant harvests. Labor and the great industries of the people have prospered beyond all prece dent. Our commerce has spread over the world. Our power and influence in the cause of freedom and enlightenment have extended over distant seas and lands. The lives of our official representatives and many of our people in China have been marvelously preserved. We have been generally exempt from pestilence and other great calamities, and even the tragic visitation which overwhelmed the city of Galveston made evident the senti ments of sympathy and Christian charity by virtue of which we are one united people. Now, therefore, I, William McKinley, president of the United States, do hereby appoint and set apart Th ursday, the 29th of November next, to be observed by all the people of the United States, at home or abroad, as a day of thanksgiving and praise to him who holds the nations in the hollow of his hand. I recommend that they gather in their several places of worship and devoutly give Him thanks for the prosperity wherewith He has en dowed us, for seedtime and harvest, for the valor, devotion and humanity of our armies and navies, and for all His bene fits to us as individuals and as a nation; and that they humbly pray for the con tinuance of His divine favor, for concord and amity with other nations, and for righteousness and peace in all our ways. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed. W’ m . M c K inlkv . JOHNNIE’S WISH. They had only a small farm out in the hills, A clearing in the forest of oak and pines, Where the ferns grow tall on the mount- tain side; But down in the garden on the trailing vines The big yellow pumpkins are the farm er’s pride. They have cattle and sheep and goats out there. And little fat pigs and big ones too; And chickens that scratch around every where, And wobbling fat geese and ducks in the pond, And turkeys that strut like a boy with a drum. There’s plenty to do on the little farm ; And the children are glad when the holi days come. But when frosts set in and begin to coat The vines of the pumpkins like sugar cake, And the maple trees down by the mount ain brook Look ghostly at night, like an upturned rake, Then said the farmer to his boy one day ; “We will catch the fattest of turks, and Of geese and of ducks a load beside. For tomorrow we’ll hitch up and drive to town, Where we will for your winter’s clothing provide.’’ And when Thanksgiving came around at last, The mother had a turkey fat and plump, And of yellow and juicy pumpkin pies "A plenty for ourselves,” said mother, and some For the good old parson and neighbor’s folks.” The parson said grace, and with head in clined. Did offer up thanks to the Lord on high: “O give us this day our daily ”— Then Johnnie looked over at sister and smiled— 'Cause he thought he’d rather have pumpkin pie' —M urikl G ray . ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ Reduction Sale of Boots and Shoes I dbristmas is abeab, but were WE JOIN IN THE PROCESSION.
