THANKSQtVINQ DAY At no porlbd in the history of tho Nation, tho I'royince, atid, moro par- is yc-ir it w8tlMi�t�i that Tfcft w'obitt get 300 votod ttndJroittms will iiho#:Uiat that figure is ^practically correcl. Toronto has a very wobbly board of llcoMso commissioners. First they refuse n license nnd then thoy chnngo their Miluda and grunt it. Hon. W.

Somebody charges that a man hod to be brilMsd to vole for Hon. Geo. IV Graham. IIow rldlculousl Oraham is so well liked that voters are willing to pay an admission fee to tho polling booth to vole for him. ticuiarly, the District, have wo had greater cause for thanksgiving than at,tho present time. The white wings of peace arc spread from shore to shore; prosperity reigns supremo throughout tho laud; dex'olojimcnt and progression go forth hand in hand; the earth has yielded abundantly of her substance and tho weather has been most propitious for tho harvesting of the bounteous crops antl the seeding and cultivation of tho soil; the general health of the people is good and no ravaging or contagious diseases stalk abroad to scourge the inhabitants of our blessed Oomiuiou; our strikes and internal disputes have been peaceably settled, and, all in all, wo havo greot cause to rejoice- to return tho gratitude of our hearts to Ilim from whom all blessings flow. Here, in the very heort of the Canadian West, surrounded by the most glorious opportunities ever presented to liumanlcind, with every advantage for growth and dovelopratut the heart can desire, with just laws and faithful olficers, it really seems as if the voice of the Creator is heard Baying: "Lot 1 micover the land. Which 1 hid of old time in the West, As a sculptor micovors his statue. When he has wrought^is best." Tho history of Thauksgivlng Day tlates from those sturdy riigrini fathers who landed on the shores ol >'eW England, when, ns the poet says "Tho breaking waves dashed high. On a stern and rock-bound coast." The cause of their "First Thanksgiving" was the arrival of supplies from the Mother Land for they were on the point of starvation in tho Charlcstown Colony, Mass. This was us early as 1631. From that time until the 'present the day Ixas been observed to a greater or lesser extent but it didn't take dennitc shape or receive govcnmient notice until the early si.xties. Our Thnnks- giving Doy is proclaimed from year to year by, order of the Governor-General. This ylo and also u splendid exercise for nil others.' We lose the best of the day when wo forget the object for whicli it is set apart and merely imagine it is a day for gormandizing and gluttony-using our greatest ofTorts to see how much turkey and cranberries we can encompass. The basest sin of humanity is ingratitude. Shakespeare liimsclf could find no wortls to delinc ingratitude and so he u.scd the metaphor: "Stronger than traitor's arms, ingratitude." Jngrntltude is alihorrod not only by Ood but also by man. It is to create in the heart those attributes of gratitude and lliunksgiv-ing that the day has been appointed. Will a Christian iieop'.c supinely cat the fat of the land and pay no thought or render no thanks to the Giver? Mark how tho Master "gave thanks" when he fed the hungry multitude. (John G:ll.) The custom of making tho day one for family reimions is a splendid idea The bonds of kinship, love and fellowship are thus united, perpetuated and made stronger. This custom is prevailing throughout tlic Unitetl States to a very marked dcKree and kinfolk from far nnd near are looking forward to the time when they will gather again aroiuid the old hearth stone. � H Is a source of satisfaction to know that in our public schools the children are being nnide to know and realize the meaning of the day.

Tho electric light department has had an awful lot of work to do since thoy look over the plant and especially OS the street improvements have piled a lot more on their shoulders. Tho fact remains the same, however, that several streets are so dark as to make their favorite haunts for people subject to nervous shocks and vivid imaginations of highwaymen and holdups. If the superintendent could spare two or three men for this work so as to get the lights going for the long dark winter nighta it would do a great deal to allay tho suspicions held by some people that the Alberta climate is not especially suited to people with nerves.
