We lead tbe world in the mild and paternal char- acter of our government, which blesses all and oppresses noue. If oppression exists in Some localities and men are deprived of their rights as citizens, it is owing to the failure of local officials to enforce the law, which gives every citi- zen the fullest liberty consistent with good government. We lead the world in the opportunities offered to every cit- izen to secure a home of his own. While the chances offered Uie youth in securing an education are excelled by no country iu the world. We stand at tbe front in tbe general diffusion of in- telligence; in tbe matter of reilgious liberty; in tbe general prevalence ol piety, and in respect for the holy Sab- bath Our mines of coal, iron, copper and the piecious metals are unrivalled Our oil wells are sufficient to light the whole world; our territory is wide am productive euongh to feed tiie whole world.

Some hav sought to secure an amendment tha should put the name of God in our Na tional Constitution, In order to make i appear to the world that ours is Christian nation; but the Declaration r Independence expresses our reliance o God's providence for the maintainanc of our national life, and by the annual Thanksgiving proclamation of our Pres- ident and all the Governors of the States and Territories, we acknowledge tbe Godless Continental Sabbath; where their children might escape tbe exam- ple of tbe free thinkers of Europe. To the severe trials of the winter were m ionR drouth, and a nettled nloom came on them by the non-arrival of relatives and tbe probability of their ship-wreck. There came a day of fast- lug and prayer. God heard them and sent rain; their crops were saved and matured, and word came that their friends had arrived safe at another port. Then came a day of thanksgiving. There had been days of thanksgiving for victories and royal births, but fur the fruits of the earth and general mercies, aa was that of Our first National Thanksgiving was by leeommendation of Congress in 1777, and thereafter annually through the Revolutionary war. In 1784 there waa a national Thanksgiving day for peace; in 1789, for the adoption of the Consti- tution, and in 1795 for the supprension of an insurrection: but it was left for our martyred Lincoln to issue a procla- mation for the observance of such a day in 1863-4. And since then, we have an- nualiy had such a proclamation issued by tbe President. Our text raters to tbe new moon fes- tival at which special sacrifices were of- red. Trade was suspended aad late banquet place. In David'a ome at a certain new moon an annual east was celebrated, though on this oc- Asion he made it a pretext to escape rora Saul. It is evident that the splen- ora of court life and the luxuries of palace home, had not made him forget lie di'ar old home, hid away among the ills with its simple life and homely are. He remembered the annual fam- y feast; the gathering of brothers and isters. and the greetings of father and mother, and tbe lamiliar scenes of the us liotne where iie had learned to >ve his country, truth and God. Our own Thanksgiving has come to the annual family feiist, when the sons and daughters gather round the old heaillisUine, where they renew the memories ot a happy child- ood, while they tell over their joys and orrows, and when the evening shadows all, they listen to father, as he reads lorn the old family Bible and bow down n prayer together as they did long ago. lere in the West it is coming to be cel- bMted much as it is in the East. We are glad that it is thus observed, and hat family and home life, the different eiaiious of which are so frequently mentioned in the Bible is thus cherished aud endeared. The family is Some- hing more than "Persons collectively who live together in a house1' some bing more than "A common lineage lescended from one progenitor" "Home's not merely four square walls. Though with pictures hunz md Home Is where affection calls. Filled with Bhriues the heart has bullded." "Home is sweet aud only sweet where there's those we love to greet us." It stands connected with the dear ties of kindred, with father, mother, wife and hildren. It Is the centre of earth's holiest relations; the sweet refuge from conflict and care, where when wearied with strife we turn aside and find sym- pathy, comfort and rest. We joyfully respond to the call of our Governor who says: "Let the people in their homes render thanks to Almighty God for the maulfold'blessings of the year. Thank God, ours Is a land of homes. "Homel a maglo In that word! It the myrtle circle which surround! Comfnrtsand Ylrtues never known beyond. It U tbe temple of tbe awoetost human Love." hi attention given M> coUoctlons.

Thanksgiving took its rise with the settlement of the Pilgrim Fathers. To escape English Intolerance the Puri- tans emigrated to Holland, but the spirit and institutions of that country, did not afford the freedom they sought, and they turned their faces toward the New World. Arming poorly provided with the necessaries of life, the rigors of the first winter swept away half their number, but they would not return to England. I was enough for them that had found a place to worship God; from English intolerance and Concerning our political futnre we venture no hut spit? oC a'xrm and distrust; spite of the of ambitious and unscrupulous politicians who scheme personal power and plunder, America la safe, if our Homes, which are Hi once the hope and the bul- work of the nation, are consecrated to purity and truth, and defended from in- vasion by tbe foes which threaten its sanctity. 1. Home is the sanctuary of pure is its legal basis. Two hearts made one in sympathy, interests and aim; exhibiting unselflsh devotion to each other, nharing alike in common joys, sorrows, and responsibilities, into whose keeping Is committed the welfare of young immortals, who bring joy and love to the.home where they are trained to love only the good aud pnre, a place where the courtesies of life are cultivated, and all that is amiable In and temper is assiduously incor- porated Intrt the habits of life and ex- pression; where because love reigns, there 'n perfect agreement between pa- rents and cheerful obedience rendered hy children. Such a home is a fit type of the heavenly home. Where there is an absence or tack of love such a home is impossible, and though there may bo wealth and education, these can be no substitute for tbe love which makes a genuine home, buch a home though many of iu members may die or be scattered, is mighty in influence, snd Messed in memory. 2, Tbe true home la religion it bpcomet "A spot sacred to peace and God." There is nothing that so assures harmony in the home, or gives equal guarantees of piety iu tbe children aa parental devotion to God. Long after the gray haired father and mother have passed away, the fra- grance of their pious lives and example will remain, and memory will renew in the breasts of the survivors, tbe daily scenes in which the chapter was read; the hymn sung, and tbe family and its committed to God. Such memories shield the youth and make infidels in the family almost impossible. If we would nxjn our youth high aud worthy aims, and lay in them the found- ation of a noble Christian character. God must be acknowledged in our home iite. OC a failure in this respect it is written: "I will pour out my fury upon tbe families that call not on my name." .National character and life are made in tbe homes the grand old I'uritan heroes wbo crossed the ocean not for wordly gain, but to find freedom to worship God, trained their children to trust in God. and love liberty. Mo wonder their descendants conld not be bound with English chains! No wonder that when the mother coun- try oppressed them, they threw off the yoke! And the spirit of patriotism still lives among their descendants, for when the late Kebellion occurred, old Plymouth sent 800 men to the front, 1-0 of her whole population. Good homes are worth defending. They foster patriotism. The youth who grow up prize tlie government which makes such homes possible, and are ready to defend the land which de- velopea and defends the home. Grow- ing up, they in turn go forth to build new homes upon the same foundation principles. If, by chance, tbe youth drift away from their moral moorings, memories sweet and abiding beckon them back to better living. "Tho sea of ambition is tempest toss'd And thy bopca nitty vanish like foam But when sails are shivered and rudder lost Then for the light uf homo. And there like n sUr, thro' the mid-night cloud, Tbou Shalt the beacon briirbf For never till shining on tb} sbr.md Can lie ouuncbt-d its bulr llaht" Many a man is kept, if not made, a worthy citizen, by tbe .memory of pledges given an that morning in yooth when he said tbe parting word to tbe pious mother whose hand waa laid in blessing on bis head. 4. On tbe fathers and mothers of America devolve grave responsibilities and splendid opportunities. Cradled in our hutues, is the manhood of our nation when iu 1900 it shall number 100 million of people. The Citizens, legisla- tors aud leaders of that period are now plastic in our bauds; ou them will de- vulve the responsibility of guiding the ship of State. If America shall contin- ue to shine on, the brightest star iu tbe firmament of nations, ruling tbe world of nund, leading the boats of truth and righteousness and quickening the pace of time toward the loilleuium, we are under the strongest obligations to train these young sovereigns to rule, by giv- ing them the highest type of home. Down yonder across the nation's track stand the terrible Gohaths of wrong challenging her onward march, while in our homea we nave millions in train- ing, not in sword exercise, or bayonet drill, but in that which is more effective for their personal needs and their coun- try's service, training them to trust in God; to love their country and the truth. We should spare no pains or expense to make every youth a David ready for the mightiest Goliath threatening our na- tioual or home life. 5. The duty of the the home is its mainstay, the school of pur- ity, piely and patriotism, tbe highest duly ot the governnit-iit in all legisla- tion is to give tiie home tue tirst consid- eration. It must sustain all luus which conserve its purity. It must put down With a strong hand all that threatens its interests. It must never In greed for territory, for mere political reasons or ambitions forget the home. It must by all means aud always consider, en- courage and make possible the highest type of homes. It mustlearu that what- ever threatens Its homes threatens the life of the Nation. In general our laws tavor the home, but there are matters which demand earnest thought and op- position because they threaten, and seek to invade and pollute or destioy the home. We mention Some of the foes. 6. Mormoinsm haa pre-empted an im- mense territoiy. This Mitby system has taken rout and anchored itself in tbe Mul of several territories.
