Down tho years In an unbroken
bain, the links of which now num
ber closo to 300. clvllltatlon In tho
now world has been handed a torch
Which tomorrow wo light anew. If we
but catch a portion of a spirit which
animated the New England colonists
then tho day of Thanksgiving that
they originated will remain a day to
be observed wtth reverent regard for
entury upon century to come.
Thankfulness Is not always the off
spring of Tlrtuo. Often the seed that
brings It to fullest flower In our
bearta Is the vicious seed of selfish
Beta. We are thankful because for
tune has dealt mora bountifully with
as than, with our neighbor, or per
bapa' because tragedy or tribulation
that has -settled upon our neighbor's
'Aesrthsfone has pascd us by.
Tnio thankfulness does not, either
-willfully or thoughtlessly, take pride
In one's elevation, above another.
Rather It Is a feeling of gratitude for
the strength that enables one to reach
down from an advanced position a
helping hand to the brother strug
The first Thanksgiving was a feast,
meager perhaps In comparison to the
repasts that will grace the tables of
Klamath county tomorrow, but, In
comparison to the prior months of
famine and hardship, a great feast
to the participants.
In the new made cemetery at Plr
mouth,had been laid away many a
loved parent, son, sister, wife and
friend. Between the survivors and the
land at their birth rolled the migh
ty Atlantic From the shores of the
ocean westward stretched an un
charted, forest, holding none kneir
what hostile terrors. But betwixt,
the sea and the woods they bad made
a clearing, cultivated a few acres of
ground,' reared some houses and the

So.wKfin the crops ware gathered

bad known better feasts In England,
as food measures feasting, but there
they kte by tho grace of James,
Icing of' England. In mental chains.
Here they ate by God's good grace,
freemen Jn body and In mind.
Not as a feast of the Epicureans,
tempting Jaded appetites with fine
food, was the first Thanksgiving
kept, but as an observance of hospi

used slnco the quotation first bo-
camo popular. What tho author of
tho words meant to say was tuat
"Tho Mills of tho Falls climb slow-
l) but they get there every time.
This, say the Investigators, has been
established beyond dispute; futrncr
more, they assert, the author had In
mind tho Mills family of this city,
now represented In tho business
world by tho name of J. S. Mills and
Hut very tittle has been learned
nbout the history of the Mills family
previous to their advent here, but
statistics show that they came here
from tho vicinity of Albany, this
state, that they wero thoroughly Im
bued with the spirit of Clnclnnatus of
old, and camo here to farm about
eight years ago, first having become
thoroughly convinced that Kalmath
county Is the premier agricultural
section of the universe.
With commendable discretion,
they decided that nearness to a live
city was the next best thing to living
In a productive farming community,
and established a home about SVs
miles southeast of town. There they
lived In peace, happiness, and suc
cess, until five years ago, when the
call of the spirit of old Clnclnnatus
began to thump louder than ever,
and they decided to open up a busi
ness establishment In which, their
guiding spirit's favorlto implement of
cultivation, the plow, could be more
easily, and profitably too, It
must be confessed, b distrib
uted among the disciples of the gen
tleman of old. In plain, practical,
everyday words they came here to
sell plows, and Incldently all the la
test harvesting and tillage machin
ery needed to keep Klamath county
In the van of progressive counties.
They handle the McCormlck line,
and Frank Mills, speaking for Daddy
Mills, said yesterday thaf their
choice of farming Implements has
been vindicated, for they have made
a splendid success of their business.
International tractors are Included
In tbelr line, and also I'iO plows.
Oh. yes, and lots of other things too.
but it Isn't necessary to tell all about
them here. "Tho success of their
business speaks for the worth of ma
chinery they sell.
The Mills farm of 160 acres still
belongs to the Mills family although
they are now actively engaged In
farming It. They live In town, like
the place, and Intend to say here.

A1U-: THANKFUL FOK IIKU'
Many, many thanks to the kind and
generous people of Klamath Falls
who made donations to tho Barrett
family, as the aid could not have
reached a home where it is more wel
come. Misfortune overtook Albert Bar
rett early last spring when he re
ceived a double compound fracturo
of the left leg. After recovering he
worked a little more than three days
and had bis right uboulder broken,
which will knock hlra out of employ
ment for five or six weeks more.
Surely, owing to the kindness of
Klamath Fulls residents, this will be
a real Thanksgiving for us and wo
nro deeply thankful.
