To t rqgged Pilgrim Fathers it was something more than a tival-. pf thanksgiving. With the familiar gjfts of Provi- dence jtb'.ivhich they had. been accustomed in the land of their birth.spread before them, there must have some to them the picture of the broken line restored, in the thought Giver of Gobd had vouchsafed His mercies uhder new and austere skies and that Heaven was a. canopy, matter where men meet in a spirit of Chris- tian thankfulness for benefits received. The struggles.and hardships were forgotten in .the memory of .what had'been that primitive congregation of souls bound together in dangeis shated and sufferings endured, thanks to Him from whom all blessings flow. As each Thanksgiving Day comes lound the bfoken is restored. In our case it is the broken line qnes which must C9me to one and all at some time.'of1 our Jives of mercies of we have been the pai takers and shaiei-s In the lecollection of these, on the day-which bi ings home to us the full meaning of thankfulness, we shall be reminded that no matter the ci osses we have "been called upon to beai thete aie ledeemingfeatuies make for cheerfulness and lemove gloom, blirtgitjg the radiant shaft of giatitude to bnghten lives which other- wise might be too despondent If we commemorate roduclaj itatet In tbe Mit coiple ot Uw KejwblicaM little Juigllnc tiaX wIM loot prices upward l.

In the measure that we sense individually much to be thankful foi, so, on the voted to the expression of a nation's thankfulness, we shall nave mudh to encourage and to hold us way m what has been oui poition.
