II mr It was Observed— Services In the Churches. The annual thanks and feast day, Nov. 24, 1808, will long be remembered as the most pleasant Thanksgiving day tor many years. Tbe day was a perfect one, and the cold bracing air made it an ideal day of Thanksgiving. The holiday was more heartily observed this year tbitn ever before. The services in the churches were largely attended. On all the ponds In the city and down on the alougu back of the glass works hundreds of boys and girls en- oyed the superb skating, a diversion ;bey are seldom allowed so early as Thanksgiving day. During the two nights previous the ice had frozen to a thickness of three or four inobes so as to make it safe. UNION THA.NK89I VINO SERVICES. Thanksgiving services were beld at the M. E. church yesterday, being a union of a number of churches. The attendanca was quite large and the occasion of deep interest. Tbe pipe organ was decorated with flags, tbe Cuban colors appearing in companionship with the American colors. A splendid choir under the lead of Mr. 3. 0. Richardson rendered choice music. Rev. Dr. Powers of tbe M. E. church conducted the services, in which all pastors of the churches uniting took part. Rev. J. M. Qaiser of the Cumberland Presbyterian church, preached the sermon from the text, Pdalm 33:12: 'Blessed is the nation whose God is -he Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for His own inheritance." Mr. Gainer began by tracing Thanks- ;iving services from the earliest days and the causes therefor; be referred o the peculiar relation existing be- iween the Hebrews and the Lord, and that as Israel was chosen of Him tor a ipecial cause, so the preacher thought America had been chosen as the na- ilon for personal, religious and na- :lonal freedom; .that America was a and where there was peculiar cause or thanksgiving because of the fruit- 1 ulness of its soil, and because of ltd aimatic conditions, enabling it to grow ill kinds of fruits and grains. The. wars of America were touched upon, ind it was shown that while this na- ion was not a warlike people, but rather a people of trade aud commerce; manufactures, agriculture, mercantile industries; a people with colleges, seminaries, and tbe professions, yet it has lifted the sword on several occasions, and always in de- ease of the weak and oppressed, and a favor of humanity. Mr. QaUet'a effort was exceedingly able, patriotic, eloqient, and WAS highly enjoyed by .ho large audience present. At the close of the aarraou Rev. J. I. J. Rice announced that a collection would be taken for the benefit of the Woinail'H Homo. The choir rendered another hymn, and Rev. Dr. Van Tteese pronounced the benediction. Au early morning C. E. prayer meeting was held at the C. P. church, which proved very interesting. Ln the Episcopal church special services were held and wore well attended. Rev, II. M. Chitttinden delivered a very strong and pertinent address, giving reasons for personal as wallas national Thanksgiving. In the afternoon Mr. Obittendcu conducted a Thanksgiving service at the Episcopal ehapol on State street. At the German Evangelical church there was a large attendance and Rev. Wm. Hackman preached a Herman suitable to the occasion. His address was inspiring ami waa highly spoken of. ___ Trading Stamps. After Oct. 1 we will give trading stamps to cash customers.

Henry THE SCHOOL CASE lion Mulshed Its Case—Judge Hartzel) ' Makes an Important Ruling-Arguments to Begin Monday. Judge Hartzell made an important ruling in the school case Wednesday that will be likely to cnt short the case barring murh evidence that was to have been offered. Up to Wednesday little progress was made in bearing the case because of the dilatory tactics of the attorneys for the defense. Each question asked by the prosecuting attorneys was objected to by the attorneys for the defense and on escb objection there was a long argument by the attorneys. Tola delayed tbe proceedings and tbe prospect was that tbe case would last until the court was worn out. Jndge Hartzell's ruling has simplified matters. He ruled that only evidence that was to prove discrimination against t the children of Scott Bibb, the complaining witness, would be admitted. Both sides had subpoenaed many witnesses to prove their cases but by the ruling of the court tbe evidence of all these witnesses was ruled out. Mr. J. F. McQlnnia, ono of the attorneys for the city, today stated that it was very probable his side would otter no evidence because of the rule. The prosecution finished Wednesday evening and court adjourned to Mondry. When court convenes, if the present plan of the defense is followed, tbe attorneys will at once take up tbe argument of the case. The arguments will be long and there being six attorneys in the case, may occupy three or four days. Dorsey fuel Oo. have left Belle street and are now located at 314 Piasa street. Give them a call.
