Reports from the rural districts are that the motor car has practically revolutionized the wntermelon-stealiti industry, to the preat disadvantage of the planter. The thumping process, by which ripe melons were detected, is no lonirer practiced in the ihirk corn field. Instead a onrload of melons tire taken and are plugged at leisure after the thief reaches home. Kansas City Star. Strict Commercialism. "You iwvod your audience to tears." said the admiring friend.

WHAT WOULD THE DAY Thanksgiving Should Wean Mere Than Mere Feeling cf Gratitude for Favors It Is to lo reptvtteii that the toauti-ful and arrrriate custom C .horv-ing a da j- of Tt.ankscix ing !;s Knnu asjciaTM with an ahuvtanv o material things. If crHxs have been I ;:nti-fuL if the harvest lias Invr gnat, if here has been an ovtrtlow of the "pxxi" t'liincs of earth, and if the times hae hen iHavfnh reaj-ons for thanksgixin: are sr.ixiHsel to increase correspondir cty. There is something i:t ;le outwanl tradition of ThanVscivinp that mn:M appear to justify this stressing of the Importance of materia! thir.srs : hut there is also something in the real Thanksgiving that v inih! detv.and the stressing of other th.r.irs. tier, and the placing of emphr.s'.s tipoit spiritual matters rather than upon condition which pertain soie'y to the r'.iysioa! w c I being of man. ! The real thanksgiving demands a j feeling of deep rrpproctation for whatever has come, the acceptance vith eual thauks" of the gxl fortune or the bad fortune cf previous n-.c4ths. This Thanksgtxinc Is essentially an Internal thing It can be observed regardless of what one had tor dinner that day, and lis observance is a affair that should be open to the rich and the poor of the earth. It may well he that some, on this day of taking stock ar.d expressing gratitude for blessings, can find little of good that has come to them as the world counts good. Rut those re the cues for whom Thanksgiving may hoid the deepest reality. These may say: "Lord, for life, its love, its hope, its Interest. Its opportunity for service: for the great and durable satisfactions of living that center about home and work ; for deep and ahiding memories of joy that bereavement has brought Into sharp relief: for all these bless ings may t be truly thankful. To this prayer may be added by those In pres$erity : "And may l te mindful lest In tin? excels of good thincs I become self- centered and forget my obligations to ny fellow men. BE WITHOUT A BIRD LIKE THIS Fess-mism Has No Flace in tha Rsal Spirit of Time of Thanksgiving After having devoted so much of ir time to bemoaning tle tnisfortunos tiuit have ctiue t u as a people dnr-i g the past jxar. it will d u gnol m this Thanksgiving day to step and I iok at the other side of the ledger f n! cast up the aeo-unt of the g od things that have come to us. Our s'tu: tiort admittei"y has nt hoe- as faxorahle in i.;rr.y respects as we t-uh! oes;re. We have had proh- lem and difiieuUies which p.atnrally sirorsetl d'ssat'sfaetion and disntent. We have Iwu feeling mighty sorry l'.ir ourselves. IVrhrps Th.tnksglvtrg OAvaston cot; .! bring u gncotci blessing to us as a people than to realiust oi;r perspec-tive and d'.sivlaee pessimism with a row spirit of optimism. j IV1rt, w enter into the true sp.nt of the day it is necessary to pnt awry our hatreds, our grouches ftvul disc-on - tent r.nd center our thoughts upon the Messing that have come, tf one won! 1 cive thanks he must realise the fact of having been "Messed, and In doing s he minimize the misfortunes he has experienced. The pessimist !s in no position to srive thinks. The piili cf optimism wilt possess us to the extent that we are able to give thanks in spirit and in truth to the tiiver of All Good Gifts today. For the fact remains that, in spite of our difficulties, we are the most prosperous and the most fnvombly sit uated nation on the earth and that wo have more reasons for contentment and gratitude than any other people. This Thanksgiving day. If observed in the spirit of those who inaugurated it. is capable of lifting the spirit and thought of the American people to new-heights and of ushering In n new era of contentment and happiness. Thanksgiving tay comes to mean today not only an occasion when wo may express our gratitude to the Most Higli for His care and kindness In the past, but likewise h time when br marshaling our blessings before ws we are inspired with new hope and cour age for the future. TTicjc modem Cranberries Always Have Played Prominent Part at Thanksgiving Feast It is a tradition In Plymouth that the eating of turkey and cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving day goes back to the first Pilgrim Thanksgiving. That liule hand of sotf-oxtled. devoted Christians cresses! the4 stormy sea in the Max dower and landed at Plymouth ttook on Pccnr.l or 'Jl. ltVJO. Their first winter in (he New World was one of great suffering, marked with famine and hard: hips. Governor F.radford. in his account of the Pilgrims first Thanksgiving, ces not give a menu of the dinner, hut he often refers to the wild turkeys ns one of the luxuries ot the c-oJeuy. However, John .Tosslyn, an Knglish travels- and naturalist, who visited New England in 1'S and wrote in aecour.t cf its "Karitles. says: Cranberry or beat berry (because bears used much to foed upon them) is a small trayiicg plant that grows in sait marshes that are overgrown with moss. The Indians and English e them much, boiling them with su- snr for sauce to cat with their meat." That (cranberries belong to the tra- ditional Pilgrim dinner is shown hv the menu of the !eeent repast" served at the first Ce-loh ration of the Landing of Our Forvfathcrs. which was observed on IVccmher 22, ITCtO.

These articles were dressed In the plainest manner (all appearance of luxury,' whose memory wl! shr.U ever respect).
