a canful of that good old western

crunchy corn kernels. Tuck this
succulent blend in individual bean
pots and heat in thj oven 'til J.ho

Services at the

- Church at Sixth and Granite
Street Thursday at 11.

morning of Thanksgiving day.
The service opened with the con
gregation singing the hymn No. 146
in the Christian Science Hymnal.
The Thanksgiving Proclamation
was then read by Mr: J. R. Tremble,
the First Reader. ,
The Scriptural selection was from
Philippians 4:1-20, and was also
read by the First Reader. After the
Scriptural selection the congregation
united in silent prayer which ' was
followed by the audible repetition of
the Lord s Prayer with its spiritual
interpretation from- the Christian
Science textbook, "Science a n T
Health with KGey to the Scriptures,"
by Mary Baker Eddy. " :
Hymn No. 3 42 from the Hymnal
v.as then sung by the congregation.
The lesson-sermon for Thanksgiv
icg day given in the Christian Sci
ence Quarterly and read in all Chris
tian Science churches in the United
States and many other parts of the
world followed the second hymn. The
subject of this lesson-sermon was
' Thanksgiving" and had for the
Golden Text: "Offer unto God
thanksgiving; and pay thy vows un
to the most High." (P3alms 50:14).
Ofter the responsive reading of
Pible passages, Mrs. Ogla Wiles, the
Second Reader, read the citations
chosen from the Bible, while Mr. J.
R. Tremble, the First Reader, read
the correlative passages from Science
Among the Scriptural verse3 was

the Lord for all hi3 benefits-toward
me? I will pay my vows unto the
Lord now in the presence of all his
people. I will offer to thee the sac
rifice cf thanksgiving, and will call
upon the name of the Lord." (Psalms
116:12, 14, 17).
And among the citations from
Science and Health was: "Chris
tians rejoice in secret beauty and
bounty, hidden from the world, but
known to God.' Self-forgetfulness,
purity and affection are constant
prayers. Practice not profession, un
derstanding not belief, gain the ear
and right hand of omnipotence and
they assuredly call down infinite
blessings. Trustworthiness is the
foundation of enlightened faith.
Without a fitness for holiness we
cannot receive holiness. A great
sacrifice of material things must
precede this advanced spiritual un
deistanding." (pages 15, 16).

soloist, accompanied by Mrs. Wiley
