Here, in the very heart of the Ca- nadian West, surrounded by the most glorious opportunities ever presented to every advantage for growth, and development the heart can desire, with just laws anc faithful' it really seems as" if the voice of the Creator is heart saying: "Lol I 'uncover: the land. Which I hid of old time in the West As -a sculptor uncovers his statue, When- he has best." The history of Thanksgiving- Day dates from those sturdy .Pilgrim fa- thers who landed on the shores of Xew England, when; as the poet says "The breaking waves dashed high, On a stern and rock-bound coast." The cause of their "First work." Thanksgiving1' was the arriv- "Is that al of supplies from the Mother Land for they were on the point of starva- tion in the Charlestown Colony, Mass. This was as eariy as 1631. From that time until the present the day has been observed to a greater or lesser extent but it didn't take definite 'shape or receive government notice until the early sixties. Our Thanks- giving Day is proclaimed from year to year order of the Governor- General. This year the date set makes it possible'for us to enjoy a. 'dual celebration for day falls on the same day, Monday, [November Oth. The calling together of assemblies for the purpose of giving public thanksgiving and praise to God, is one of the grandest lessons to be ------placed before the people and also a. splendid exercise for all others.' We lose the best of the day when xsre forget the object for which it is set apart and merely imagine it is a day for gormandizing and our greatest efforts to see how much turkey and cranberries we can encom- pass. The basest sin of humanity is ingratitude. Shakespeare himself could find no words to define ingra- titude and so he used the metaphor: "Stronger tha.ii traitor's arms, in- gratitude." Ingratitude is abhorred not only by God but also by man. It is to create in the heart those at- tributes of gratitude and thanksgiv- ing that the day hrvs been appointed. "Will a Christian peop'e supinely eat the fat of the land and pay no thought or render no thanks to the Giver? Mark how the Master "gave thanks" when ho, fed the hungry mul- titude. (John The custom of making the day one for family reunions is a splendid idea The bonds of kinship, love and fel- lowship are thus united, perpetuated: and made stronger. This custom is prevailing throughout the United States to a very marked degree and kinfolk from far and near are looking forward to the time when they will gather again aronml the old hearth stone. -It is a source of satisfaction to know that in our public schools the children arc made to know and realize the meaning of the day. This, in a great measure, will tend to i rincr (lie parents in lino until Thanksgiving in deed and in tmth will be, next to Christmas, the greatest day of the year. And it day in and nights and lie ware of the man who cheats hitu- self iu a game of .aolitaire. The difference between fame and notoriety is thax in the case of the notoriety you usually get your name spelled correctly. Every time a mac refuses to hear what we have to say we are usually- conceited enough to declare that 'won't ,isteu to reason." A can always tell from the way her husband shakes down the: furnace whether or not -he's in gowl humor., Perhaps one reason why a, loan shark has so few friends is not be- cause he's always lending money, but because, he insists on getting it back; One swallow doesn't. make li spring, Is a saying known to one-and all; Yet one orange peel won't do a thing But give us a'hard "and early fall. of fame and cillors have been at day out, and more nights out. If a man is not his own boss with all his tiqae at his own dis posal there u no use.his trying to be an alderman. For if be used his boas' time- as liberally as the aldermen have been using their own he'd get fired ss sure as guni. Aid. ifacbeth and Aid. have found that they cannot afford to give so much time and labor away free and are going to look after their own business a little next year. I'd like to" see Dad get as good men. as. possible with, him in. the council next year but they should be gootl "men with plenty, of time, "to spare. This year .has been bad" enough but next year will possi- bly be worse, fi -Any has a notion he would like to have rate he payers use "Alderman" instead of "ilr." in advancing him they should place this fact up alongside of the honor.

Some people are raising young roars because there are not me lights of the streets. The electric light department has had an awful lot of work to do since they took over the plant and especially as the .street improvements have pil- ed a lot more on their shoulders. The fact remains the same, however, that several streets are so dark as to make their favorite haunts for people sub- ject to nervous shocks and vivid im- aginations of highwaymen and hold- ups. If the superintendent'could spare two or three iiien for this work so as to get the lights going for the long dark winter nights it would do a rreat deal to allay the suspicions some people that the Alber- ta climate is not especially suited to people with nerves.
