A DIMEE IN FLOPJDA SHOOTING ON AN OLD ABANDONED PLANTATION. WMd Tarkjrr For » Thanksgiving Keput. Dskldj Faddy u m Guide »nd * Cook. Game That Is Kant Pinning Away—Two Good Shots. tCopyright. J8S7, by the Author.] The first Thanksgiving I ever passed •way from home found me encamped on «be banks of Blue spring, about 1UO miles 1fom the mouth of the St. Johns river, in Ttbe midst of a wild orange grove. I was then, as now, an enthusiastic hunter, and soon after I had pitched my DADDY PADDY AND HIS HUT. toot was scouring the country adjacent ftjr game. The bare piny woods, with ifceir scant soil and tall trees, offered littlo in the way of real sport except a few Socks of quails and now and then a deer •r a fox squirrel. It so happened that I ]kad extremely bad luck that Thanksgiving •week, and my primitive larder on the woraing of the eventful day contained •othlng more than some salt pork, bacon •od hard tack, with » few vegetables. The grove in which my tent was pitched belonged to an abandoned plantation, and •mat far away, in the center of a half wild garden, lived one of the ancient retaineri tf the departed household in a little, tum- l»te down shancy. He was an old negro, known aa Duddy Paddy, who claimed to have come into Florida when it was an Indian possession and to have been at one time a slave of Coachochee, the Seminole "Wildcat." He was over 90 years old, anyway, for he could tell tales of the times •f Andrew Jackson and was at the battle •s* New Orleans. He always insisted, however, that General Washington was present »t, that memorable event, declaring with great pertinacity that if he did not take part in the fight he was "thar or thar- abouts." His wrinkled skin was black as ffcony, but his wool and his eyebrows were •white as snow, giving to this old man the air and dignity of a patriarch. Early in the morning, while the dew •was still glistening on tho grass blades Mid the river hidden beneath banks of mist, I took my gun and sauntered down toward she garden where Dndily Paddy had his dwelling pluce. intending to hunt the kammook that lay beyond it. I saw his white, woolly head bobbing about among the fig and oleander trees, jvnd as I threw my leg over the snake fen™ he saw me and cried out excitedly: "Hi, dar, rnossa! Lemme tell yo' me jts' see do big-ges 1 gobblah may eyes eber look ;it. Fac 1 done shuah yo', mnssa," "\Vhich way (lid he go, Daddy? Tell me, «(nick! We haven't any t.'uno to lose." The •Id man turned and gazed at mo with an •ir of offended dignity in face and atti- »\ide, notwithstanding his bent form and Aaking limbs. "Look heah, massa. 'Pears too me youso puttin on aihs. Now, whose am dnt tuh- key!' Am it yorn, or am it mine? Le's Bettle datques'ion right now on dis spot." "Well, it won't be anybody's if We don't |tet afwr it soon, will it? Come now. Dud- sly, don't lose time fooling. Tell me which way he went." "Dat am' what me axes yo'. Am il yorn, or am it mine? I'm de one dat sees ste tuhkey an puts yo'on de trail. Now, do ques'ion am. Ef we git ura, whose am it?" "Well, Baddy, if we get the turkey, which looks mighty doubtful, you'll havw your share. Dotw that satisfy you?" "Yessflr, dat am de talk. Oh, we git •m shuah "miff! Dat ar tuhkey mn goin toe be our meat. When me see tuhkey fly dat away, me knows ezackly whur toe fin nm, sah. An, wlia's ino', he am likely toe hab hen tukkeys wiv uni, sah. Now go aiosey right 'long fer dat big pine on de trige ob de hammifc, an ole Daddy'11 foller •ehln yo'." The old man went back to set a stick up against his door, to keep it fastened during his absence, then begun to hobble after xie. Finally afwr more than an hour of agonizingly slow progress we onme to the border of a broad savanna, where we stopped under tho shade of a wide spreading live oak, and Daddy gave me final instructions. "See dat lone pahneewr ober ilah by de «vek? Well, right beyon dat pjvlmeeter am a buhu (tract of grass recently burned •ver). an, boy, shuah's yo's jilihe. dah is tuhkeys right dar! Git down on yo' knees jwi cra'l, keerful, keerful, along de aige •b de hammik, an when yo' gits neah de palmeeter yo' raise up an gib it toe 'em— pom! To' un'stan wha' aie done tole yo'. toy?" "Yes, Daddy, I understand." My re- s^oct for the old man hod increased since he had shown himself so well informed regarding wild turkey habits, and I followed kis instructions implicitly. Civ^ting myself prone upon the grass. 1 painfully worked my way toward the spot indicated by Daddy, my heart beating loudly at- the prospect, of a near shot at t ho t urkeys. In front of me, after 1 had accomplished my jiatnfnl journey, was a natural screen of Jflgh grasses and scrub palmetto, and to prove Daddy Paddy's prediction correct I had only to rise to my foot and peer over ie. Taking off my hat and slowly assuming a stooping posture, raising my head inch by inch. I peered cautiously through the grass tops, but suddenly dropped to the ground, clutching my gun, my hands ghaking as in an ague fit. The sight before me on the burned space near the creek for the moment unnerved joe, for It was the first time in ruy life ifcat I had beheld wild turkeys at short range and in a large flock. There were nine of them there—a great, bronze hued gobbler, whose glossy plumage shone like burnished copper and gold in the morning •un, and eight hen curkeys, all feeding quietly, not more than 50 yards away! The remembrance, of my lean larder, without even a bit of meat for the Thanki- giving dinner, nerved me for a gnpreme effort, and, quieting my trembling hands, by a mighty effort of will power I again essayed a look at the game, holding my gun ready to lire the very second my head appeared above the grass. Yes, there they were, still feeding on the bur.'!, as yet unconscious of my presence. But jn« as I ran my eye along the brown terrel of my trusty gun the old gobbler raised nis head, and his bright eye caught a glimpse of danger. Too late, however. Just as those burnished wings were spread for flight a puff of smoke told of the danger lurking behind that clump of grass and palmetto. The proud head fell to the ground, and the glorious bird . lay sprawling, with its quivering wings outstretched. His flock did not wait to see what the THANKSGIVING DAY. THE NATIONAL FESTIVAL, ITS ROOT AND USAGES. Its Evolution From »n Austere Occasion to One of Joy and Innocent Pleasure. The Sjmbol and Crowniug Joy of tne [Copyright, 1S97. by the Author.] The American Thanksgiving festival, which has become such a national institution, has its root in ancient, traditions and usages of a religious character. The Xew England Puritans, who felt their most congenial inspiration in the Old Testament, naturally sought in Hebraic su£- matter was, but were off at once, beating g est i ons . rather than those of other peoples, the, air with vibrant wings, but not before . ^ S p ec i a j furms which they were inclined a second shot from the second barrel had sent the rear bird of the fiock tumbling to earth, a ruffled heap of glistening feathers, not ten yards distant from its slaughtered mate. "Hurrah!"! shouted, leaping forth in great eiciwment, but not forgetting to eject the empty shells from my gun and slip in two loaded ones as I run along. '' There he is, Daddy: there's our Thanks- pi ving dinner. The biggest turkey in Florida, I'll bet a dollar. Thirty pounds if he is an ounce. And there's a hen, too. Both of 'm dead as nails!" "Didn' me done tole. yo' so? Didn' ma said dah tuhkeys on de buhn?" demanded the old negro as he hobbled up fast as his shaking limbs could carry him, "So you did, Daddy; so j-ou did. If it hadn't'oeen for you I'd never have seen them. You've, got a great head, Daddy, sure enough." " Jes so, jes so, ma boy. Me done K)!e yo' so." And the old man wagged his woolly head sagely and chuckled to himself. He insisted upon "toting" the hen turkey, while I carried the gobbler, and we both were tired when we reached his garden and my camp. We had a long dispute about the division of the spoils, each one insisting that the other was entitled »o the larger bird. It was finally decided that -we would "bwlle" the hen and roast the gobbler, and that Daddy Paddy should have all be wanted of either or both. Dftt am de bos' way," he shrewdly oh- fo' ef me nab whole tuhkey to« to follow. So it is that we find in the Hebrew Feast of the Tabernacles, which embodied the thank offering for the autumnal ingathering of the *niits of the year.the most natural sotuvi- of the Puritan feast, which was alike religious and scx-ial in concept-ion. Indeed Dr. Cotton Mather in one of the most famous of his sermons expressly draws the close parallel with fervid unction. Yet it was widely divergent. The old Hebrews kept up the autumn feast for seven days, ending with an eighth in which they gave way to unbounded joy and frisked with an extravagance which would have been frowned on at any other season. We can hardly fancy this sensuous exuberance in connection with the Puritan feast. The iron handed, hard headed, thrifty souls who colonized >Tew England found one day fully sufficient to spare from the productive use of their time even at a season when the need of work was far less pressing. One can imagine an occasion of this kind two centuries ago. The religious idea lay at the base of it all, and sermons two or three hours long before dinner must have given the feast a delicious smack and gusto with the sauce of hunger. Then how The young folks must have quivered in the midriff while the half hour's grace still held them on the tenterhooks, as they snuffed the rich odors which lifted like incense from the unaccustomed delicacies.

D;iddy was a famous cook in the heyday of the old plantation's glory and he soon proved to me that his prestige had not; Btiffered, despite his 90 years.

We had baked potatoes, Irish and sweet, turnips and celery, wherewith to garnish the bird, oranges from our own trees and Tobacco to smoke that I had ordered expressly by the last boat from down the river. •'Dis all rumminds me," murmured Daddy content«diy, "we didii' usettr hab no T'anksgibin In ole slabery times, sah.

The founders of the American Thanksgiving seemed to have had ;i spite agtunst Christmas. It smacked rankly of popery, and. what was even more monstrous to the settlers of Massachusetts bay, of that English prelacy the persecutions of which had been the. motive of their own departure to a new world. So down to the Revolutionary war, indeed, the Christmas festival, with all its glorious traditions, had but little foothold in New England, while Thanksgiving was scarcely recognized out of its limits. With the formation of the new republic and the closer intimacy of the people.s of the states thus federated, their tastes and customs, once narrow and exclusive, began to blend. Christmas became as much an institution among the descendants of the Puritan settlers at kwt as in Enforcement of the Statute* Sow on the Rook* the One Tiling >"ece*»jtry, S»y* the Governor—Relief for til* State Prison Wauted—Scoundrel Defrauds a Se\r»boy —Good Luck of a Lafayette WOIDKU—Ev Knsville'!* Deputy Collector Levants. Indianapolis, Nov. i4.—Referring to recent reports to that effect Governor Mount says he has not been informed that petitions are being circulated in the natural gas belt asking him to cail the legislature to meet in special session to pass a. law under which the waste of natural gras may be speedily stopped. "My inclinations are against calling a special session of the legislature," said he. "It seems to be im- possibleto bringaboutan enforcement of the laws we already have prohibiting the waste of gas, and we could have no assurance that any law the legislature might pass would be enforced. I am willing to go to any extreme to stop the great waste of gas that is now going on, but it seems to me that our present laws are adequate, if we can only secure their right enforcement. Laws Seem To Be No Good. "We have the law against burning flambeaux, and the law which permits any one to go upon the land of another and cap a well from which gas is being wasted. It does seem strange to me that the people of the gas territory do not see to it that the waste is stopped; th«y can stop it if they will. Every elty and town in the ga* territory is vitally interested. They must know that their wonderful growth the last few yeers has been due to the establishment of manufacturing-establishments brought to them by natural gas, and they must understand that when gas ceases to now the manufactures business in the territory will cease to prosper as it is prospering- now, and that the towns must begin to go backward. I have done all that I could do." State's Prison Needs Relief. In suggesting that the governor call the legislature together, it has been pointed out that something ought to be done immediately for the relief of the state's prison, at Michigan City, and the reformatory at JefTersonville. Nearly all the convicts at Michigan City will l»e i£>f in a short time, and the board of managers and Warden Harley have not been idle to devise any method under which they may be employed. Un- f der the law the warden or the superintendent who hires out any of the convicts on contract may be fined $1,000, to which may be added one hundred days In prison, and may forfeit his office in addition. Some of the labor organizations are insisting that the law shall be obeyed to the letter. MEANEST KIND OF A THIEF. He Robs a Boy Who Is Agent for a >~e-n »paper mul Is Caught, Morristown, lad., Nov. 24.—A stranger called at the postomce and inquired of Postmaster Connaway the name of the local agent of the Indianapolis News, he claiming to be a general agent in the employ of the paper. The required information was given, after which he called upon Bernad Hilt, the agent, whc is only 13 years old, and demanded an immediate settlement, and the lad paid over to him $1.30, a settlement with the office having- recently been made. Afterward the lad became suspicious of the genuineness of the fellow, who had New York or Xew Orleans, and f given his name as H. E. Wilson, and They Were Won by » Neck on the Pizen Creek Trail. "One time when I was hung I felt reel offended,'' Rubberneck Bill said reflect!VB- ly as he deftly shot the cork into a bottle of pepper sauce on a shelf in Pizen Creek's general store and promptly settled for the damages. "It wasn't the bein hung that hurt my feelin's, but it was the way the thing was done. I don't mind bein hung now an then when there's a retisonable excuse fer my doin a jig st^p on tbe at- mosfeer, but when men treats me as. Dave Barker an One Eyed Eddie done that Thanksgivin day three years ago I kicks, an kicks powerful hard. "To see, I ;vm ridin along the Pizen Creek trail when I sees Dave an Eddie ahead talkin about me. Knowin Dave well, I never thinks o' placnin fer a g-on play, an consekently this yere Barker gits the drop on me. '' 'What's stampedm ye, Dave?' says I, hands up. " 'Oh, nothin much,' he says quietly. 'I been t«llin this yere stranger.

''Wliat fer? ^p~hy, ye derned fool, I'm jest goin to win them turkeys. Ye don't mind bein hung a few minutes, do ye?' '''I like yer gall,'says I. 'Of course I minds bein hung a few minuws.

Thanksgiving mounted the hippogriff and scurried to ever}- section of the land where yellow pumpkins shone in the cornfields and fat turkeys gobbled in the woods and barnyards. Long prior to MX. Lincoln's setting the precedent of a proclamation of an autumnal Thanksgiving from the 'White House itself, the separate states 1 -id fallen into the habit of celebrating i.le same day in common. So that it had lie- come the peculiar national festival before the great war president recommended to the country at large to thank God for the fruits of that terrible harvest which had been won not with plow and hoe and sickle, but with cannon and rifle and saber, on the same day which had been consecrated to the more peaceful conquest* of the teeming earth. The fact that Thanksgiving day even in New England becomes increasingly less and less of the religious institution, which is to be expressed in religious rite and church service, is significant. Clergymen commonly speak to sparsely peopled pews on that day and the giving of thanks takes a form best expressed in the homely saw, "The proof of the pudding is in the eating of it." Religion once taught that austerity and self sacrifice, even in the way of innocent pleasure, unlocked the gates of paradise. It permits us now to believe that love and kindness and hearty enjoyment of the goods bestowed by the Almighty Benefactor in moderation are fully as close to the golden keys. The essential flavor of our modern Thanksgiving- goes far beyond the turkey stuffing, because there may be a question there as to truffles or oysters or Spanish chestnuts, but as to its being the day picked of all others for the festival of the family group in the larger sense, just as Christmas is the festival of the family in the special and narrow sense, there can be no question. This is the social gist of it. This, too, makes the day to the majority of Americans, who break up and disintegrate in their family cohesion more than any people in the world, peculiarly Touching and sacred. It. tends who had found his way to a saloon, where he was drinking to excess, and he hunted up E. T. Jordan, ex-state gas inspector. Under his advice the boy telegraphed to The News, ar.d was promptly informed that no such a person was In its employ. Wilson was then arrested for obtaining money under false pretenses. When brought before the examining magistrate Wilson made a plea for mercy, claiming to be an old soldier and a newspaperman, and that his mental condition was impaired as he had but recently been reached from the insane hospital at Lansing, Mich..and was then on his way to his hwne in Evansville. He was committed for the grand Jury. WILL BE $70,000 BETTEK OFF.)) Lafiiyrtte Woman One of the Heirs to an Estate in Kentucky. m^* Lafayette, Ind.. Nov. 24.— Mrs. S. H. Powell, of this city, has been notified that she is one of the heirs of an estate of marry millions of dollars. Her share will be something like $70,000. The estate consists entirely of real estate situated in the state of Kentucky. The original owner of the property was James Ball, a. bachelor, and an uncle of Mrs. Powell's mother. He was also a. first cousin of General George Washington. In 1813 he leased an immense amount of land, then of very little value, for a period of eighty-four years. The* lease expired last April, and the estate is now being placed in a condition for settlement. A division will be made in a. short time. No Wonder Bilgcr Assigned. Lebanon, Ind., Nev. 24. — W. A. Bilger, florist, has made an assignment to Henrj- L. Moore, with assets and liabilities of about $3.000. Mr. Bilger came here several years ago from Pennsylvania. He then applied for a divorce from his wife, who remained in Philadelphia, but she put in an appearance to renew the delights of family ties and j and declared an intention of fighting the knit afresh half parted strands of kin-1 ship. This has been the evolution of i Thanksgiving day, and it makes it pares- | cellence an occasion to be cherished, | •while certainly for this year in special, if we choose to return to the primitive thought of its institution, we have mag- flinonei] saver Buyers of Five-Dent Dlgars Win Flnfl Satisfaction in... nificent reason for returning thanks.
