Dr. Rouse read from an old New Eng
land cook b6ok a recipe for pumpkin pie,
which called for half a pound of pump
kin, spices too numerous to mention, six
teen eggs, all sorts of fruits and flavors.
Again, he called attention to the fact
that they not only ate rich foods, but
wore fine -ralmenti and he read from
descriptions of the satins and linens and
red leathers the forefathers affected.
He read the bill for a funeral and for
a -Sunday church celebration, which ln-
eluded several gallons of wine, rum and
punch and one cup of coffee.

Dr. Rouse pointed to the arousal of the
old "New England conscience" by the
efory of "Uncle Tom's Cabin," the civil
war and later the war with. Spain, which
was, a "war of Intervention."
Dr. Rouse said there may be cause for
another Intervention to tho south of us

plained if the repast, instead of being n
regulation turkey dinner, had consisted
of pork and beans they were hungry,
and what they wanted was food In large
More than fifty youngsters, newsies
and other street urchins, not ft few of
whom had no other place to go for a
big meal were seated at the mission din
nerand they were given what to them
was the one big "feed" of the year-
turkey, bulging with dressing, cranberry
sauce, creamy mashed potatoes, with
savory brown gravy, and pie.
Little ceremony attended the free feast.
The youthful guests, tnajiy of them with
taterred caps on their ' heads, trooped
boisterously Into the mission hall, where
long table fairly . "gobbled" under their
burden of turkey. The designing look with
which tho hungry children, particularly
the boys, regarded the steaming platters,

made to feed children whenever thoy

o'clock In the evening. Meals were also
served free to aged persons, too poor to
pay for them. To others a charge of 95
celits was made.
There was a religious program at the
mission church in the evening. Frank
Walker, tho ccnturlan, who has lived

Fellows in Omaha
Almost a score of young men alone In
Omaha were saved the cheerless gloom
of a "hash house" Thanksgiving dinner
by the hospitality of eight families of the
clt,y. each of whom Invited from one to
three guests to join the family a turkey
These families adopted the Idea of
spreading the Thanksgiving .spirit beyond
their 'own households: Mr. and Mrs. J.
A.-Daltell, 1119 South Thirty-first street:
Mr. and Mrs. J. C. McCutley. 6C30 North
Twenty-ninth street: Dr. and Mrs. W. II.

ge&s, 118 North Thirtieth street; Mr. and
Mrs. John W. Bobbins, 123 North Thirty-
eighth avenue; Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Star
board, 2707 Dodge street.
The Young Men Christian association
was asked by these families to send
young men who were away from homa
and without local acquaintances so that
the true Idea of turkey day might be
extended. Transient guests at the as
sociation building and other young men
who were known to lack the opportunity
of a home-like Thanksgiving were easily
found to accept all the Invitations.

giving and praise I am Indeed thankful,"
testified Miss Baker, when she spoke her
word of thanksgiving with others who
participated. Miss Vawter made a similar
assertion, and said later that the forty

Lothrop streets to Seventeenth and Har
