AS GREAT HOLIDAY.
TO'REKDER UP OUR THANKS
For the Success or Happiness that
Has Come to Us as Individuals
or Nation as a Whole.
From Wednesday's Dally.
From the distant rocky shores of
New England to the far west where
the sunset kisses the waves of the
Pacific tide, the nation will tomor
row render up their thanks for the
happiness or success that has come
to the individual or to the nation as
a whole on the preservation of peace
and tLi restoration of the country
from its war time condition.
The custom of Thanksgiving owes
to the Puritans of New England its
inception, following the landing of
the Pilgrims on the coast of the Cape
Cod country. The first Thanksgiving
was in November of 1621, follow
ing the landing of the Mayflower pil
grims the year previous and was the
first occasion of its kind to bs des
ignated by the government of the
colony. The inspiration of the Puri
tan settler has come to the succeed
ing generations until the nation ap
points the last Thursday of Novem
ber as the event on which the peo
ple are asked to make a public ex
pression of their thanksgiving to the
Almighty for the welfare of them
selves and their country.
" President Abraham Lincoln in
1862, in the midst of the great civil
war. was the first .president to give
official recognition to the day and
since that time each president has
proclaimed the last Thursday in No
vember as the day of Thanksgiving.
The day is not alone one of spirit
ual observance but in th delights of
home gatherings, sports and recrea
tions, the residents of the various
communities find expression of their
feeling of thanksgiving. In this city
there will he the usual gatherings
at the homes of the city and in ad
dition there will be two football
games in the afternoon, as football
has claimed this holiday as assured
ly as baseball has that of the. Fourth
of July or. Labor day, and tae p?r

Whether we have? 'much or little
to be thankful for we should render
up our thanks to the Ruler of all
mankind on this day and as'x for a
continuance of the blessings for the
year that lies before us until the
coming of the next Thanksgiving

TAMING THE MIS
SOURI, OUTLAW RIVER
Government Engineers Planning to
Take Up Work and Try and
Hold It in Channel.
The United States government en
gineers are planning to take up the
tr.sk of coercing the Missouri river,
known as the outlaw among the
streams of the; country and from
their heaquarters ,at Kansas City are
planning a campaign that will in
clude all parts of the river from Fort
I3?nt(.n. Montana, to the point where
the Missouri empties into the Missis
v'epi nci'.r Alton. Illinois. This will
include more or less work along the
rier near this city where the task of
kt '.'ping the river in its presentchan
n?l has been a large sized job.
In speaking of the matter the
, .S ate Journal has the following state-
nfiits from the engineers who are
tr.king up the work:
"The task of the river engineers
!s- to persuade and corce the Missouri
river into 'staying out,' and to coax
U out of its long-time custom of
changing its channel whenever the
v.him moves it.
"This may sound like an exaggera
tion, but to anyone who has spent
the day on the- river with the army
engineers, and has seen the Missouri
rv'ting away at a corn field with
wicked energy, swallowing up earth,
?orii, weeds, fences and trees, seems
?rnietinies as if the river eventually
hrul . personality, and an outlaw one
tit that. And while, carrying away
fi-rru land from one bank, somewhere
p'.-c it is equally busy, piling up sand,
mud and driftwood, making land out
-f what was river a few days before.
Then. too. the river has a habit of
occasionally clogging its own chan
nel, building sand bars so long and
o high that it. needs must become
road and shallow, in order to con
tinue its restless course.
"It is a constant struggle, but it
3 not a hopeless one, and the engi
neers point with a measure of justi
n?d pride to those places along the
jtrtam where they have built dikes,
.vhich resulted in the making of land;
o the concave, bejids where revet
ments have sapped the river from
?utting its baMc. Given a dike on
: q4t , mri rf-Tevetment on the
j?hj r$ yJul J(r!s&n- diligence, so that
nna!l" brefcki'rnay be repaired before
they become serious, the river engi
neers bay they, can keep the stream
fairly well anchored.
"Fifty years 'ago. before the com
ing of the railroads, . the Missouri
v.as the great weFtern artery of com
nerce? and steamboats plowed its
waters as far as Fort Benton, Mon
tana. NKnowing how difficult it al
ways is for the railroads to handle
great wheat harvests, one wonders
why it Is not possible for- the river
to Landle some of this traffic.
"The engineer quietly tells you
that it is possible, then he goes on
and explains the wo general reasons
why it is not beitg done. One is that
there is now very little money for
improving and keeping up the river.
"The cther reason is that many
mistakes have been made in the type
of towboats used. Boats designed for
any other rivef in the world but the
Missouri, have been ueed, and be-Ci-.use
of the shifting depths of the
river, have failed. With all its dis
advantages, there is a good deal to
bo said, according to the engineers,
for the old paddle wheel steamer,
side wheeler or stern wheeler, that
draws little or no water, which con
dition is ideal for service on the
"The river is navigable, say the
engineers, and with sufficient time
and patience, it can be made man
ageable." SPANISH WAR VETS RELIEF

TV0 INDIAN AVARS
Jason Wade of Alliance Tells Inter
esting Experiences of Early
Days in Middle West.
Alliance, Neb., Nov. 22. Jason. B.
Wade, Nebraska pioneer, is probably
the only man now alive in western
Nebraska who went through two In
dian wars without, as be expresses it,
"seeing an Indian." Mr. Wade, whose
home is at Alliance, has had 2U varied
and interesting career as pioneer,
frontiersman and early settler, locat
ing 1n Nebraska in 1871 on a home
stead near Orleans.
Young folks, as well as the older
ones, delight in hearing Mr. Wade
tell of early days in Iowa and Ne
braska. He was born in Michigan
in 18 48 and was the oldest of a fam
ily of ten children. The family moved
to Illinois by px team in 1852 and in
1854 to Boone county, Iowa, in the
same manner. - Mr. Wadevsays that
the first negro he ever saw ferried
them across the Des Moines river.
In 1855. the Sioux Indians rose and
attacked Fort Dodge, but the Wade
family were not attacked, although
warned of their danger. The only
Indians they saw were some peaceful!
ones of "Old Johnny Greene s tribe.
Mr. Wade says. The pioneers suffer
ed untold hardships and privations
in Iowa; one cold winter they lived
practically on elk meat and made
shoes from the hides of the animals.
In 1871 Mr. Wade and several
companions came by ox team to the
location where Orleans now stands,
on a buffalo hunt, using a prairie
schooner in which to live on the trip.
They killed wild turkeys along the
Republican river, but the fowls were
so easily killed that they only lasted
about one season.
The next spring Mr. Wade and hi3
wife and child settled on a homestead
near Orleans. Supplies -were scarce i
and hard to get and money was so
Ecarce that the men wore Fhirts made
from flour sacks. The drouth came
that summer and all the crops that
were not burned up were destroyed
by the grasshoppers. Mr. Wade says
that "if it hadn't been for the buffalo,
elk, deer, antelope, jack rabbits, cot
ton tails, wild geese and cranes, as
well as the grouse and fish, together
with the flour and money sent by
friends in the east, we surely would
have starved to death."
During the fall of 1873, accompan
ied by three friends, Mr. Wade went
to McCook, Nebraska, which con
sisted of but three log houses, with
one store which also served as a
postoffice. They bought their sup
plies there and then camped on the
Republican river to hunt buffalo.
One night Mr. Wade lost his com
panions and spent the night alone,
wrapped in the 6kin feof a buffalo
which he had killed .and skinned.
They secured a. number of buffalo,
packed the meat in barrels and sent
the hides to Fort Wallace for sale,
getting $1.50 each, more than a cow
hide is worth today.
In the fall of 1873 there was an
other Indian uprising and Mr. Wade
was appointed a corporal in the com
pany organized to fight them, but the
Indians did not reach the Orleans ter
ritory and he passed through the
Indian war without seeing any In
dians. The next spring Mr. Wade and his
family returned to Boone county,
Iowa, where he purchased a farm and
lived for twenty years, engaging in
farming. But the lure of the fron
tier held him and he again came west
in 1908, locating on a Kinkaid home
stead in Garden county, southeast of
Alliance, which he proved up on and
which he still owns, although he
makes his home in this city.

STATE TAX BOARD TO MEET
The state board of taxation will
meet Wednesday at 2 o'clock at the
state house. In executive session the
board will pass upon its right to re
assess property that, is alleged to
have been improperly omitted from
the tax rolls last April. Its right to
do so this year has been challenged.
If the board decides it has power to
enforce the provisions of the new law
which went into effect in August,
long after property had been listed
for assessment and county boards of
equalization had acted, it will then
decide what charitable, religious and
educational institutions are operated
for gain and therefore taxable. In the
event it desires to enforce the new
law this year and it finds property
had teen omitted it will appoint spe
cial assessors in counties where prop
erty was omitted. These assessors
will then value the property and it
will be listed for assessment 'subject
to appeal by owners. Business col
leges, colleges supported by church
contributions and other educational
institutions, lodge property, hpspi-l
tals in Omaha and Lincoln and other,
cities in the state, are dn the list of )
property which the board is to pass
upon as to whether it was improper
ly omitted for taxation last April.
The state board comprises Governor
McKelvie, State Tax Commissioner
W. H. Osborne, State Treasurer Crop
sey, Secretary of State Amsberry, and
Auditor Marsh. Mr. Cropsey is in a
hospital in Rochester, Minn.
