THANKSGIVING DAY, 1916.
It would be impossible for presi
dent or governor to write a joyous
Thanksgiving Day proclamation, as it
is impossible for anyone to look for

with lightness of heart.
This is ruot because we have been

been more than usual. For a larei
part of the people the time is nn
extraordinary prosperity. It is not
because the past year has not been
rich in blessings to us as a people, but
it is because, as the president says,
"the whole face of the world has been
darkened by war."
The president had not written ten
lines of his proclamation before that
awful thought had to be expressed.!
We could not have a joyous Thanks
giving in 1914. VVe hoped the strug
gle would be ended in another year,
but it was the same in 1915. Then we
did rather expect that the exhausting
conflict could not last much longer,
but here the last. Thursday of Novem
ber in 1910 is at hand, and we are
still under the pall of the direst visi
tation that ever has fell upon human
ity, and are less bold to predict, even
indefinitely, when the end will corre.
Some students of the catastrophe are
telling us that it may not be half

the whirlwind of fire and blood. We
are indeed grateful to Divine Provi
dence that ;n the ordering of the af
fairs of this world we have been
spared the manifold curses of war,
but our gratitude, is exceedingly
solemn. It is with fear and tremb
ling. We beware of feeling that we
are a people chosen of fortune or of
Providence, or of deceiving ourselves
with a sense of security founded on
sentiment of self-righteousness. We
hear the old voice, "Bring forth, there
fore, fruits worthy of repentence," and
fancy it paraphrased into, "Bring
forth, therefore, fruits worthy of
We do not need the suggestion of
the president as to how to do that,
though he has expressed what the
hearts of all must dictate. We do in
deed know that it is our duty in this,
a day of peace and abundance, "to

peoples of the world upon whom the
curse and terror of war have so piti

than our own, our hearts must be at
