giving Day place on the president's
table are New England products.
Rhode Island turkey, Cape Cod cran
berries, and Massachusetts pumpkin
pie, three absolutely necessary ad
juncts of the holiday's keeping, form
a part, perhaps the chief part, of the
president's feast day's provender.
The president has eaten many
Thanksgiving dinners in Ohio, at least
two In the Philippines and if memory
is not at fault, he ate one in Cuba.
He never has miBsed his turkey, for

Holiday at the Capital.
Washington's native population does
sot make as much of Thanksgiving
day as it does of Christmas, for
Christmas is the great day in the
south and a large part of the capital
city's population is composed of south
ern people. It is a general holiday,
however, and it is marked in every
home by what the children of the
family call a "big dinner." The mar
kets of the city are filled with game,
and in fact, game in many households
which can afford the luxury, takes the
place of turkey.

one of the first lessons which the
kitchen artist must learn is how to
cook turkey in American fashion. A
Washington story is that President

personal friend, on Thanksgiving day.
Mr. Arthur told his host that the tur

scent. He was told that it was cooked
by a man who had come from Aus
tria within three months and that he
had never cooked a turkey before In
his life. This story is told in Wash
ington as an example of the adapta
bility of foreigners to America's ways,
even to the ways of the kitchen.
There are comparatively few sena
tors and representatives in Washing
ton, although the opening of congress
is but a few days in the future. The
home instinct is strong at Thanksgiv

tional legislators away from the capi
tal at this early holiday season. The
New England states are represented
in the departments of Washington in
the ranks of the clerks just as numer
ously as other states are represented.

Presidential Game of Golf.
President Taft likes his holiday
game of golf, and his Thanksgiving
day appetite ls whetted by a journey
over the links in company with Secre
tary of State Knox, Brigadier General
Clarence R. Edwards, or some other
official golfer of renown. From the
golf links the president, if he looks
far off across the Potomac, can get an
occasional glimpse of the redcoated
fox-following members of one of the
great Potomac hunting clubs. Thanks
giving day in Washington is marked
as the day of the openig of the fox
hunting season in Virginia, which lies
just over the river.
The old-time Virginians still follow
the fox, and the ranks of the natives
have been augmented In recent years
by northerners who have come south
to make their winter homes. Along
the Potomac westward and a little
northward from Washington a good
many "great houses" are in process of
erection. They lack thc age and dis
tinction of the old-time residences of
Virginia and it may be that the native
born ones resent somewhat this in
trusion of the wealth of the north,
wealth accompanied as it ia frequent
ly by an oste.ntataion that is nothing
short of vulgar. The new rich ele
ment, however, which is erecting
homes in Virginia, is confining itself
largely to the section of the Old Do
minion near the capital and there it
does not intrude to any considerable
extent upon the time-honored reign
of the old families who have lived in
the state themselves and through
their ancestry for hundreds of years.
