The day net aside by proclamation and
precedent for returning thanks for blessings
received was generally given up to an en
joyment of the things which make glad the
heart of the Inner man. nnd the annual
Ocrlmatlon of the succulent turkey went
merrily on. The family reunion , which has
como to bo recognized as concomitant with
the annual Thanksgiving , was n feature ,
and boyhood days under the old rooftreu
were discussed over the well-browned bird
and toothsome mince pics , "like mother used
to mnke. "
In many a homo In Omaha the Thanksgiv
ing turkey wa conspicuous by Its atwence.
While the various charitable organizations
had done noble work ably assisted by Indi
vidual efforts and by the united efforts of
the school children , there remained many
homes where the bare table gave silent evi
dence that gaunt poverty held sway. In
most of these cases a mistaken sense of
prldo was nil that prevented the securing of
the materials nrccsssary In the preparation
of a. hearty meal , as the charitably disposed
of Omaha are like the hairs of the bend for
multitude , nnd baskets of toothsome dain
ties nnd sulrataiitlal food were dispensed
with liberal hands wherever It was known
they were needed.
AT IIOMB AND AT CIIUUCH.
While the kitchens of good housewives
were odorous with suggestions of bountiful
spreads nnd the downtown resorts were
vivid with the colors of ninny times multi
plied foot ball cranks , hundreds of the
more devcutly Inclined gathered In the
Omaha churches during the 'morning to re
turn thanka for such blessings as the season
brought. Congregations either attended
services In their own churches or Joined
with others In union meetings. There was
no effort toward elaborate celebrations , n
plain discourse appropriate to the day. with
a more or less pretentious musical program ,
serving to Indicate the spirit In which
they received whatever of good the year
had brought. Nearly nil the services wore
held this forenoon , and the general stagna
tion of the motor trains operated somewhat
to prevent a large attendance.
The motor trains were running ns usual In
the early morning , but when the rain that
had been driving down since early
Wednesday evening changed to n
freezing drlzzlo of sleet It en
veloped the trolley wires with a coating
of Ire that practically prohibited the pas
sage of the electric current. Soon after 8
o'clock the cars began to run Irregularly
nnd before 9 there was scarcely a train
moving In the city. The few motors that
continued to attempt to travel propelled
themselvtfl slowly , running a few feet and
then stopping until the current thawed
nwny n section of Ice. Finally the wheel
connections were removed from some of the
trolleys and scrapers substituted. These
scraped th Ice from the wires and in another
hour trains were again running at Irregular
Intervals. The storm was one of the worrt
of itn kind that the street railway company
has ever had to contend with. The sleet
fell no rapidly that the conductors were even
compelled to keep Blinking the trolley ropes
to kcup them frnm becoming etitf with Ice
nnd UFclesa. Even the bells were clogged ,
nnd In several eases had to bo thawed out
before they could bo used.
All this tlmo hundreds of people were walt-
Jng td get down town. It was too unpleas
ant to walk and so they congregated In
corner drug stores nnd In sheltered doorways
nnd waited ns patiently na possible for the
cars that seemed to have gone out of busi
ness ) entirely. They got down town even
tually. but In many cases too late to attend
the cervices they had started for.
At 3 o'clock In the afternoon the- manager
of the Young Women's Chrlstlon association
served an elaborate dinner to the members
nnd thirty of the gucnts In the association
rooms in the Her building.
WITH THE SICK AND NEEDY.
It baa long been the custom of the benevo
lently Inclined people * of the city to mnke
Thanksgiving day the occasion for liberal
donations In tlio various hospitals of the city
and yesterday morning they were even moro
liberal than usual. The Presbyterian hoypllnl
was especially favored. Several cash dona
tions and n liberal contribution of supplies
encouraged the managers and assisted to
cheer tie ! patients who occupy the words1.
The Clnrkson Memorial hospital was pleao-
nntly remembered by Its friends. Two big
turkeys were pent In and they helped lo
mnkn n dinner for the Inmates , while a
quantity of fruit and vegetable. " , Riilllclcnt
to add variety to the table for many days
to como , were included In the contributions.
The Thanksgiving dinner was served to the
pntlenttj i-oon otter noon and was heartily
At St. Joseph's hospital rcllgloiw services
were hold In the chapel at an early hour.
A dinner that tickled the palates of the sick
was pervert ut noon.
TUHKEY AT TUB JAILS.
It has been a long time since n cousldcr-
nhlo portion of the prisoners In the two Jails
of the city sat down to such a feast us
was served them yesterday. Not a few of the
co-called vagrants who Kicked hard when
they were "sent up" for ten or twenty days
came to the conclusion that they worn not
so badly used after all , even If the big tur
keys nnd the seas of cnmbeny sauce were
served behind prison bars.
Sheriff McDonald spread himself on 'the
flock that IIP has now In the county Jail.
Ho ordered his tin keys several days age.
nnd Insisted on the best In the market. Ho
got such a supply that there was moro than
a pound of the luscious meat for every man

thi ) feast were proportional in amount. The

The prisoners In the city Jail were given

They also hud roast turkey and cranberry

FEEDING TUB CITY POOR.
Yesterday thousands of school children
would have enjoyed their feast of
turkey and cranberry sauce and
mlnco p | . ) n thousandfold moro than
they did If a picture of the In
terior ot the shabby building of the As-
tnclntt-d Charities at Eighth and Hartley
streets could have been conjured up before
From early In the morning the ram-
ehackle plr.co was filled with the poor
mon , women nnd children , thcro to receive
the piles of provisions that had been do
nated by and through the children of the
public schools. They were similar In onn
respect , that they did not seem to have
mifllcleul clothing to protect them from the
cold and disagreeable weather of the out
side. Children wcro most In evidence , They

Unction is mndo by the association and the.
so-called "iindopcrvlng poor" have a small
chance of obtaining any assistance. Yester
day , ' howeyer , all such distinction was
thrown to the Winds and every applicant ,
whether deserving or not , was sent away
with basket or bag full of urovlslona.
The Etore room was filled , There were
great piles of potatoes , nil kinds of canned
fruits , grocc'rles of "every eort , vegetables
of every description , fruits of great variety
and finally 1.000 pounds of fresh meats ,
donated by Swift'p. Hammond's and Cudahy's
packing houses. Every applicant wao given
a share of everything and enough to satisfy.
Det'Ides the moat , only a small share of
the stuff was donated by anybody except
the school children. Secretary Laughland
yesterday morning had not words enoug-h
with which to pralso them.
"They have done nobly , nobly , " ho said
again and ucalu.
FOUND TIIK "WIDOW'S MITE. "
The donations were carried and brought
to the omco of the association Wednesday
night. Secretary Laughland nnd Clerk
Lindsay and their assistants worked far
into the night arranging them and prepar
ing for the descent that was made In
the morning. In the mats of stuff
was what Secretary Laughland called
tlm "widow's mite , " with a tremor In his
voice. It was a little salt sack containing
a hugo potato * ! and a piece of paper enclos
ing two pennies. Upon the paper was In
scribed , in childish characters : "Harry
Jackson , 331C Miami street , Omaha. "
"It Is n lesson for some of the people In
this city , " remarked the secretary as ho
showed the donation.
At noon yesterday fully 300 people had
called for and received provisions , and
over 100 moro applied before night.
This n-.caus that100 or moro
families have been supplied with a
good substantial meal on at least ono day.
What pleased Secretary Laughland nnd hla
alstant. . most was that thcro was such n
quantity on hand that everybody could bo
given a Hufllclency without stinting anybody
olso.The association also received n lot ot
chickens and oomo delicacies made by tome
thrifty and kind-hearted housewives. There
wcro paved for tl-o sick and the old.

clothing of all kinds and character. The

Omaha Gospel mission , 320 South Thir
teenth street , received numerous donations
to give to the worthy slek and poor for n
Thanksgiving dinner. The managers were
around with their wagon delivering them.
AT THE HOTELS.
At all the hotels there were Indications
that a special feast day wnu nt hand. The
chefs were In high spirits yesterday
morning us they saw carried to
completion the arrangements that
they had been planning for a week
or more. The unfavorable weather of
the morning had the efl'ect of filling most of
the hotel corrldaiB. Knot ball wa the fn-
vorlto topic of conversation among thu
younger entlmslnstn and their scnlois , too.
The probable outcome of thu day'H grcax
game In this city , the core between Chicago
cage and Michigan , the result of thu Cornell-
Ponnpylvaulu game and the further humilia
tion of Yale by Princeton all formed lead
ing topics of conversation , even though the
weather outside. wn anything but propltloun
from the spectators' standpoint. The drum
mers and the traveling rallroaderH who were
caught In town over Tlmnkogtvlug day re
mained pretty clew to the hotels , the mini-
new houtos and the railroad offices being
The Mlllard nerved Its dinner at 5:30 :
o'clock In thu afternoon , and It was the
finest feast over t-iireml on the tables of that
hostelry. The hour was especially appropri
ate for the foot ball playeis and devotees
who am etopplug at the hotel , and these
formed the pilnclp.il part of the guests yea-
U'rdjiy. The Nobrafeka team and about 100
ontliuslnaUa Klmlentu took posemslon of
the Mllliud shortly aftur noon. The capture -
turo waN cciiipk-ln and the red and white
colon1 of the Ktato university waved high
nbovo everything eluc for tlio rest of tlio day.
MENU IS ELAIJOHATB.
The meuu of the Mlllard was probably
the mos ( elaborate ever teen In Omaha , On
the fiuo paper COHT wlilcti Is folded across ,
stiff cardboard are embossed the words
"Thanksgiving Day. 1S9G , " nnd "Tho Mll
lard , " In diagonally opposite corners. A
hand-painted turkey and n dainty bit of
wheat are the prominent features of the
other adornments of a handsome menu.
The Paxton hod n largo number of guests
at Its Thanksgiving day dinner , which was
served nt 12:30 : o'clock. Proprietor Kitchen
said yesterday morning that ordinarily a
hotel did not have a numerous
house at this festal occasion ,
but this year proved an exception
to the general rule , and the house was well
I filled. The menu of the Paxton was an ex
tremely tasteful one , the cover representing
a farm scene with several turkeys viewing
the landscape o'er from the boughs of a
nearby tree. "Thanksgiving' Dinner , 1S9C , "
are the words embossed In gold on the outer
cover , beneath which are concealed the
names of a dozen courses of good things.
The Dellono Is another hold that has
been completely captured by the foot ball
players and their followers. Alfred Dull ,
the famous conch , and his students fron
lown City , are registered at tills hotel , ani
accompanying them are a host of students
who would be willing to even tlo the locea
of ono of the football player's shoes. The
Dellono served Its dinner at 12:30 : o'clock ,
and all but the players who would enter
the afternoon's contest partook heartily of
an elaborate menu that had been prepared
by the chef. The menu was printed on
cream colored cardboard , with "Thanksgiv
ing" standing out In silver loiters on the
front page. Thcro was also a cut of five
turkeys singing "There'll be only a few of
us left. "
TURKEY AND MOUE TURKEY.
At the Barker there are a host of actors
and actresses belonging to the "Rob Roy"
nnd "Tho Twelve Temptations" companies.
In addition to these there were
a number ot Nebraska university students
who had drifted away from their team. Din
ner was served from noon until 2 o'clock ,
and on especially fine spread It was. The
menu was a striking ono. with a good
Thanksgiving day scene on the front cover.
A louo turkey was shown as spending Its
last night of rest on the limb of a farm
tree.The Murray served n big dinner at 1
o'clock to n largo number of commercial
men and n number of families who are the
gursts of the house. The menu was an elaborate -
orate one. On the front cover was em
bossed a good likeness of a Thanksgiving
turkey , with the name of the hotel and the
date below. On the outsldo was an entire
page devctcd to telling what the good things
were that would bo served , the title line
and the list of wines being strikingly dis
played In red typo.
The Merchants served a fine dinner at
noon to a number of students from Lincoln ,
many commercial travelers and a few prom
inent mon from out In the state. The menu
card was an attractive ono , with the big
ilcturo of a turkey done In colors on the
front cover. On the Inside cover the name
of the hotel and of the city were displayed
In red letters , and the entire card presented
a most tasty appearance.
The Arcade , the Windsor , and the other
hotels all reported good houses , and all
served dinners of unusual excellence. The
smaller hotels kept up with their larger
competitors in the line of dainty menu
AT THE Y. M. C. A.
The large assembly room on the second
floor of the Y. M. C. A. building presented
a very pretty scene last evening. It wns the
occasion of the Thanksgiving dinner which
Is given annually to the members of the as
sociation by the Hoard of Dlrcctora and their
wives. Seven long tables nearly filled the
room. Flowers were placed In cut glass
rcccptnclta In the center of each and the
bimhy-headcd chrysanthemum In varlgated
colora festooned thu walls.
Secretary Willis and hla aids have been
steadily at work for over a fortnight In per
fecting the details of the dinner , and gauged
by the largo attendance and general good
cheer which prevailed throughout the even
ing his efforts wcro crowned with BUCCCEU.
The dinner was not Intended for the mom-
bertjlilp of the association at large , but was
moro particularly designed for thc o mem
bers who know not the comforts of the homo
board. In accordance with the Idea , over ICO
Invitations were I sailed to young men about
the city who are living fat away from the
aroma arising from the parental roast turkey
and pumpkin pies and the monotonous bill
of fare of the rrataurnut and boarding hoiuie
to which ttieno young men arc accustomed ,

linger In their memories for many days to

J. W. Carter , the negro who was arrested
In this city a couple of days ago at the
request of the Council Bluffs authorities , who
believed that ho committed a number of
robberies In that city a few days ago , saw
. a glimmering chance of cocaplng prosecu
tion , but thla hope seems now to have been
dashed to the ground.
I After the prisoner's arrest he told the
police ofllclals of this city that ho was willIng -
Ing to go across the river without requisi
tion papers. The Council Bluffs authorities
were notified of this , but when Chief Can-
nlng came after Carter ho changed his mind
and refused to go without the legal papers.
This change In front was made on the advice
of the prisoner's attorney.
It Is alleged that n legal point has boon
raltvil In the Council Bluffs courts that the
Information against Carter was not filed be
fore the proper legal olUelal. It was put on
Ille with the city clerk , who Is an appointive
and not an elective olllccr. It is held that
therefore thU ofllcer has no legal power to
ask for requisition papers. In this Cartcr'w
hope ret'ted ,
It neoms now , however , that the police of
this city have obtained damaging evidence
against Carter In this city and that ho will
bo prosecuted hero. Ho will bo charged
with the burglary of Prlceman's clothing
store on Douglas ctrect. This place was
entered nbout n week ago and several hun
dred dollars worth of Jewelry stolen , bc.sldeu
a portion of the clothing stock.
Detectives Savage and Dcmpsoy have se-
nured the evidence against the prisoner.
They have found In his rooms in this city
several gloves , which are said to be a per
tion of the stolen stock. Ho was wearing
at the time ot his arrest a necktlo which
Prlceman says also came out of his storo.
In view of this evidence the local authori
ties Intend to file a complaint against the
negro charging him with the burglary. He
will bo prosecuted hero unless the legal
technicalities In Council Bluffs are over
come nnd ho can bo tried there.

It has beer left to a Kansas blacksmith
to nuke debt-paying a pleasure. All crodl
tors will bo eventually forced to adopt his
plan. Next time you pay your debts demand
what this man glvcw hla credttois. Un-ler
the system adopted by Kreil Westhoff of
Wathcna , Kan. , his customers look for
ward to settling their accounts with him ,
much ns the suburban youngster longs for
the ccmlnc of the greatest show on earth.
Instead of regarding his debtors as unile-
slrablo persons to bo particularly trlcndly
with , ho welcomes them royally , on an ap
pointed day , and they all feast and make
merry at hl expense.
The beauty of Mr. Wcstholt's Idea Is Its
absolute originality. Ho has considered the
collection problem , after the fashion ot al
most every Kansas man , on thu basis that
It Is n very dlllicult ono to t-ulve. It Is the
misfortune of the country blacksmith that
almost all of his work Is done on credit , the
farmer , as a rule , finding U li.oonvenlent
and often Impossible to pay spot cosh. So
Mr. Westhoff studied bis books and racked
his brains until ho formed thin pKm. AK a
IIret step to carrying It out , he Issued an In
vitation to every debtor , In v.'li.'ch ho taiil :
"As I have to meet payment of a note I
find It necessary to cull upon all those who
are Indebted to mo to help me out ns mihli
as you can. Therefore I have doelik-d to se
lect ono day and kindly request your pres
ence at my shop at Wathcna , and pay the
amount herein stated , and all thcrso comply
ing wlrh this request will receive a special
treat. Lunch and refreshments will bo
served from 1 p. m. to G p. m. In my base
ment that day and a very good tlmo assured
to nil present. Please prcHcnt this card
when you call and show thu amount of your
account , which Is dollars and uonta.
Hoping all will respond nnd you will have
a good nodal afternoon. "
It may naturally bo supposed that thin ab
solutely unique Invitation created n tonluh-
nicnt. No ono had over heard the like. To
think of a man Inviting his dcbtom to meet
and enjoy themselves with him , and making
the open sesame to that enjoyment the net-
tllng of their bills. It scorned llko n Bol-
ohaiusar feast , and no llttlo derision was ex
cited by the blaclmmlth'H new departure.
Tlio day came It was only u very few dnyd
ago when It wau decided that the dobtom
should gather , and what a gathering It wan.
If there was one farmer pneent there were
thirty , and the jollification they enjoyed ha *
nut been equaled olncc tnu days In Kansas
City , Just ncroKH thu line In .Mltwourl , when
Martin Itcgan wa running for the city
Not lho leant unexpected feature of the
occasion was that , without exception , every
debtor who attended the feast quared ac-
couiitH. P OKI I Lly this might have been In
duced by the fact that beer and other hover-
ages that cheer were dispensed In plenty ,
and also that It wau good betir , which IH a
recommendation that no tippling Kaiwan
can afford to pass lightly over. When It
cmnrH to beer In Kansas , It In always clearly
apparent to the purchaser thereof , that ,
while the Intention of tlm man who Helta him
the amber liquid may have been excellent
when ha supplied lilinnelf , that lho fulfill
ment was of an exceedingly weak nature' .
Not so with Mr. Woathoff'H beer. It wns of
the regulation blue ribbon variety , mich na
delights the thirdly MMI ! and lucreufuu the
capacity of the consumer. Kansas has many
queer thliiKtt placed to her account , and
there Is no qiUHtlon but what this takes
rank among iho Ilrst
"It was a new experiment. " Mr. Westhoff
said , when questioned , "but I flem-cd nut
that I couldu't lose by It nohow. You nee

I looked at the thing In this way : There
wcro three particular points that I calcu
lated my Idea would cover. The first of
these wim that this Is a prohibition tUnto ,
and that the beer ought to go pretty well If
It wns good. The second wns that the ac
counts duo mo would all bo pnlil In ono day
and In that way I could use the receipts to
much greater advantage * than I could If the
money came In In driblets. When cash
comes In n dollar at a time now nnd then , It
don't bring nuy returns , and It is spent nu
fast as it comes In. The llr.it you know It's
gone and you haven't anything to show
for It. The third point was Unit I holleveil
I could HO conduct mieh an affair that It
would bo on a paying basis. Of course , that
la a matter that lian got to be left to the wit
( if the man who IH getting the Idea up , and
I just thought I had enough brains to run It
"It don't take much of a man to see , ac
cording to my way of thinking , that fmcecKS.
Is mtU'h moro ccrtcln In collnctlng bills ot
pel sons who might not pay nt all If you tried
to force them to do It , In this way than In
any other. llc ldex thai you don't make any
body your enemy. There's n whole lot ot
people who would bo willing lo give 50 or
7f > eenlH for the kind of treat I set up.
In fact , I think they'd give that much
rather than bo left out. So you see I collect
my bills , keep my friends , nnd get new cua-
totnerfl , because I tell them I nm going to do.
