ho will do it again. Wo all did it.
It is tho day beforo Thanksgiving a
glorious, golden, sunshiny nnd stimulat

Tliuiiksglvlli;; In India.
The native servants of India aro said
to bo courteous iu tho extreme, and when
they learn of any particular festival
which their masters desiro to observe
they always nmko it a point to offer
their congratulations, accompanied by
presents of flowers, fruits nnd sweats
tastefully arranged iu fantastic baskets.
They know all about Christinas and
Now Year, but it was tho United States
consul at Calcutta who first enlightened
them regarding Thanksgiving. There
after tho diplomat and his successors as
well have been appropriately honored
on tho "Yankeo holiday."

TliHiikiglvIng (live Joy und Comfort.
Somo beautiful thoughts regarding
Thanksgiving are embodied in tho fob
lowing paragraph published by Huriwr'a
Bazar some timo ago: "When tho heart
is sorest, grief tho bitterest, Iocs tho
most extreme, tho giving of thanks brings
n rolief to tho spirit liko that of rain to
tho thirsty earth. To give thanks to
heaven that wo liavo had the lost to
love, that they are ours, Binco wo love
them still and wo cannot lovo what is
not; to give thanks that they over ex
isted, that wo knew them and had to do
with them, that wo hnd pride nnd joy in
them to do this is to put ourselves into
such close connection and conversation
with tho nil giving power ns to recelvo n
now joy almost us precious ns tho old.
It is like the breaking of sacramental
bread still with tho beloved; it is bliur
ing with henven still their possession.
It is lifting tho whole being to tho spir
itual piano whwro tho beloved aro. It is
without meaning it, without knowing
it, saying 'Thy will bo done.' It is en
tering into the clo!o intimacy ot that
power dark with excessive brightuci.8.
It makes heavenly joys real and all but
renews and rc.ivilies tho earthly."
