Washington, Special. The Presi
dent has , issued his proclamation
naming Thursday, November 30th
next as- a day for thanksgiving. The
By the President of the nited States
of America, a Proclamation.
When, nearly three cei turies ago,
the first settlers came to he country
which has now become th s great re
public; they fronted not only hard
ships but terrible risk to their lives. In
those grim years the custom grew of
setting apart one day in! each year
for a special service of thanksgiving
to the Almighty for preserving the
people through the changing seasons.
The custom has now become national
and hallowed . by immemorial usage.
We live, in easier and more plenti
ful times than our forefathers, the
men who with rugged strength faced
the rugged days; and yet the dan
gers to national life are quite as great
now as at any previous time in our
history. It is .eminently fitting that
once a year our. people "should set
apart a day for praise and thanks
giving to the Giver of good, and, at
the same time, that they express
their thankfulness for the abundant
mercies received, should manfully
acknowledge their shortcomings and
pledge themselves solemnly, and in
good faith to strive to overcome them.
During the past year we have been
blessed with bountiful crops. Our
business prosperity has been great.
No other people has ever stood on as
high a level of material well-being as
ours now stands. We are not threat
ened by foes from without . The foes
from whom we should pray to be de
livered -are our own passions, ap
petites and follies; and against these
there is always need that we should
Therefore, I now set apart Thurs
day, the 30th day, of this November,
as a Day of Thanksgiving for the
past and of prayer far the future,
and on that day I ask that through
out the land the people gather in their
homes and plaes of worship, and in
rendering thanks unto the Most High
for manifold blessings of the past
year, consecrate themselves to a lif?
of clenliness, honor and wisdom, so
that this nation may do its allotted
work on the earth in a manner
worthy of those who founded it . and
of those who preserved it.
In witness thereof I have hereunto
set my hand and caused the seal of
the United States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington,
this second day of November, in the
year of our Lord one thousand nine
hundred and five, and of the independence-
of the United States the one
hundred and thirtieth.

made several valuajble discoveries in
his method. of breeding and produc

trees I -" ! '
The State Department of Agricul
ture has made many distributions of
mulberry trees, and last wek Biolo
gist McCarthy announced the last dis
tribution in the following circular
"The North Carolina Department
of Agriculture will, beginning Novem
ber 15th, distribute among the farmers
of the State 20,000 seedling mulberry
trees. This distribution is intended
to encourage the growing of silk in
North Carolina, but the trees will at
the same time furnish shade and food
for poultry and hogs. Every man in
the State should have a mulberry
grove. The ttrees should be planted
12x12 feet on dry soil and cared' for
like peach or plum trees.
"These trees will be sent by mail,
post paid, in packages of 50 and 100.
Not. less than 50 nor more than 100
tress will he sent to one address. To
cover cost of packing and mailing
applicants must enclose 1 cent for
each tree. Postage stamps accepted.

made by the department. Those who
want them should apply at once.

Shelby, Special. In mining for

High Point Fire.
High Point, Special. The Lindsay
Chair Company's plan suffered a loss
by fire of $1,000 or more. A few
minutes past 7 o'clock the alarm was
sounded and . when ten minutes later
the fire was thought to have been put
out and people were returning home, a
second alarm was given and the flames
were seen to leap upwards in great
volumes. The fire originated in the
engine room, where several boiler
makers were at work, the factory hav--ing
been closed down on that account.
The damage by water is the heaviest,
the whole building, machinery, cabinet
and engine rooms being flooded. The
loss may probably exceed the figures
given. The fire will not necessitate a
4hnt down but a day or so of t!he
plant, as the wheels will commence to
revolve again next week.
