niE BEE: OMAHA, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1913. 15 PURITANS HOT SO SIMPLE! Scores of Children of the Poor Given Rev. F. T. Rouse Says They Indulged in Rich Food. WERE LAVISH IN THEIR CLOTHES Larue Number Attrnd the Union Services it the First Presby terian Church, Where Dr. nonne Speak. Kov. Frederick T. House of the Flrt Congregational church, preaching a Thanksgiving sermon at the union ser vices at the First Presbyterian church, said the people of America ought to be thankful for free schools and churches and for the growing sentiment toward real democracy In educational life. lie said the time must come when the peoptn would own the public utilities and event ually there would be a striving for the ultimate aim an equal distribution of material things. Concerning 'woman suffrage, Rev. Mr. Rouse said: "We are thankful that ten great states have given the ballot .to women, but we tremble as w'e wonder what they will do with this power. I believe they will eradicate the double course of our mod ern life Intemperance and Immorality." Not So Simple. Just to show that the modem man and woman are not so bad and that tho Pil grim fathers were not such simple, un assuming folk as we are wont to believe. 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. Vgut the germ of the blessings we now enjoy had been planted In the minds of the Pilgrims," Dr. Rouse continued. speaking from the text: "Whose seed la In Itself after Its kind." "Their Instltu uons were rather aristocratic, their BChoola even were not democratic and Prison las, I know, did not have the vote and not only did not have the vote, but were not allowed to go to school until alter the bo ye were out." TVn.1. Ylnm fni. H , " u Referring to tho slave trade Dr. Rouse said an elder of the church thanked God fop -the safe arrival of his slave ships: nnd' that the president of Tale university once sent a ship load of runi tp Africa vim which to purchase slaves. Rut to show that the seed had been planted and later grew into righteousness 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 "nt for "dur own aggrandizement," but to .carry on the destiny of the nation which has taken up the "white man's burden." A large number of people attended the services. Tho pastors of several churches participated In the Thanksgiving cele bration'. A collection was received for tho Inmates of th Old People's home.- Sumptuous Feeds Many of the scores of children of the poor who were treated to a noon-day Thanksgiving feast at the Interdenomi national People's Mission church. Twelfth and Chicago street, would not have com 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 quantities. 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, and the resentlessness of their attitude warned Rev, Alexander Wagner, pastor of the mission, that It would be well to make the saying of grace short. He did. but before "Amen" had been sounded, fifty chairs scraped and fifty children boys and girls, black and white, all of them poor sat down to a Thanksgiving dinner. Although the hour for the dinner was at 13 o'clock, arrangements had been made to feed children whenever thoy came In throughout the day, up to 9 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 fifty years as a slave and as many as a free man, sang "Slavery Days." Besides Mr. Wagner, the committee in charge of the Thanksgiving festivities at the mission Included: Mrs. I. M. Forkner. chairman; Mrs. Sadie Cannady, secretary, and A. Nash, treasurer. Four such din ners to children of the poor have been given on Thanksgiving day at the mission. RISE EARLY TOjGIVE THANKS Youngr Women Walk Forty Blocks to Attend Y. M. C. A. Service. ABOUT HUNDRED ARE PRESENT Sunrise Frayer Meetlnsr Drlnira Ont Many Members of Various Church Socletlrn from All Parts of Torrn. Judge Whartonis . . Able to Give Family Cause for Thanks Postmaster John C. Wharton madje, one poor family In the south part of the city truly thankful, by personally delivering a parcel post package of live chicken, after paying the excess postage that tho family was unable to raise. A country relative had mailed a live cfclcken to the poor family and had at tached a letter to the bird to explain the Thanksgiving gift. The letter being first class mall matter made the who)e pack age take the J-cent-an-ounco rate, instead of the low parcel post rate, and the total tostage to be collected amounted to $1.30. .Postmaster Wharton, discovered, the situation and feared that the poor family wottld be unable to pay the excessive postage. In order to complete their Thanksgiving dinner and save them from keen disappointment, he paid the charges himself and ,Jnmped Into his automobile 10 personalty acuver me Dira. His arrival with the package brought great Joy to the family, and now Judge Wharton .feels thankful himself that he helped - to brighten someone else's Thanksgiving. Thoughtful Folks Feast Transient 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 dinner. 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. Mick, 211 South Thirty-sixth street; Dr. and Mrs. Alfred C. Mattson. 1CC0 South Thirty-second street; Mrs, Herman T. Zentmyer and daughters, B17 North Thir ty-third street; Mr. and Mrs. T. F. Btur- 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. u Newsie Gives Nun Pennies So- Other "Kids" Can Get Feed A newsboy and a nun exchanged Thanksgiving greetings at Fifteenth and Farna'm 'streets and the brown-garbed sister was surprised to receive a thank offering of pennies from the little newsle. "I'm gonna git a tolkey dinner, and blxnuss has been good, so I'm tankful," the urchin explained. He handed the nun several pennies and asked her to put them in a "kleckshun fer some kid wot ain't got nuthln to be tankful for."

St. Hitchcock, after a long, stormy session with tho democrats of tho United States senate, whom ho Is trying to convert to his way of thinking on the maner of currency reform, enjoyed tho calm of a Thanksgiving at his home In Omaha. He arrived from Washington to spend the festive day at home and In cidentally to make the acquaintance of his latest grandchild, a llttlo daughter of Mr. and Mrs, Henry Doorly, who was born slnco the senator last went to Wash ington. . "This Is the third time I have the honor of being called grandpa," said the sen ator. "I don't sco but that It Is a rather harmless experience." Senator Hitchcock was somewhat sur prised at the calling ot tho senate con- foronco on the currency bill, ho said, as he received notice to that effect Just as he was leaving for the train to come to Omaha. "I think," ho continued, "that the con ference, though, was called largely for the purpose of expediting matters, and doubt If they will make it very bind lng.

"In that case," ho said, "the currency bill cannot come up In tho senate except at odd hours, when someone may be given a little time for a brlof speech on It I am a llttlo afraid that when It comes up at last It will lead to protracted filibustering on tho part of. the ropub Itcans.'
