POOR HAYE TURKEY, TOO
Charily Gives Five Thousand Then'
Clirislmns Dinner.
Unft it limit e IVople, Hill mid Little,
j-'otivi Koyolly in Public ami
Private Institutions..
It is, estimated lUat fully Hve llwwawl
people, youus and old, were recipients of
Christina dinners yesterday at the private
and bciteolent institutions or this city.
ChristmaK is tlie da which is looked for--vvani
to with the happiestantlclpation hy
tlie inmate of these institutions, and es
pooially by tlie as:ed and decrepit in tlie
alms-house and by the prisoners at tin jail.
Among tlie many places where the -work
or makfns the thousands happy was well
and cheerfully done weie the Central
Union .Mission, the Associated Chanties PI.
Ann's Asylum, the Children's Hospital,
the Prophetic Alarm Houe. the -Mutiieipil
Lodginc House, the Salvition Army, the
poorliouse, the jail, and fcl. Elizabeth'
Asyluni.
Tlie Cential Union Mission does its for

directors-. Mi. McMicliael. the superintend
ent, and M rs. McMicliael, who is known !o
all of the pool of the eltyforherjrood works
do not rorgetthelnniiitesand tlie transients
on Chibtnuis Day. rtiey were all given a
good breakfast yesterday morning and
last nifiht from 5 to 7 o'clock there iv.is
a dinner of n erit
It was sur.iething quite iiw and depends
for it. oriRin on tie: capacity of Weary
Wajrirh's ai.d ail the Old Hosses to saw
wood vigorously, say noiiung and waitou
developments. The dinner -was to be
soiiieihinjr rrcnerclie, an they say on the
road, to all thus" who have come to Well
ington with and without sliofs from ir-ir,
and especially tho-e who have for -some
Uajs b-cn viewing the Land of Promise
from the tiptop of the mountains on tlie
oast shore of the rototnac. 11 was a large
crowd that crossed the Potomac Thursday
uudFiidpy-
They all complained of the length or
Long Bridge, but as a matter of fact some
of them looked as if they had come ;u
through the Lydecker tunnel. They tawed
wood to a man up to Friday night, and
last mght they ate celery and polished
turkey bones aTtcr the regular dinner.
Ordinarily, even at the philanthropic
Oentral Union ilission, such a dina.-r
would cost Dives or Lucullus 23 ceuts.
but last night the vicarious bird and his
funereal trimmings cost the mere tong of
15 centfe per head and c-ophagus. They
were all in a leautirul humor, singing
pagans or praisc and blessing the oppor
tunity Avhich comes to some such men
only one in a lifetime of eating the stuff
ing out or a turkey slaughtered for such
holidays.
The glad ia torial t heoogy or these knights
or the cross-cut saw and woodpile was
a good thing to observe "working- overtime.
There was something hli$r;il and beatific
in the atmosphere of the Central Union
Mission, it was scented with the Turkish
aroma or roasting meats, but tliat is .vhafc
they weie in the business for.
Anothet Interesting place was the Pro
phetic Alarm Soup House. An even liuu
dred, a centurion detachment, dined there
sumptuously at 2 p. m. They were given
soup, bread, potatoes, coffee and turkey.
This is not the order of viands on the canl,
but the things disappeared In that order.
.Mr. Cuddy has done all this without any
assistance except tlie invaluable aid of his
wife.
They vent abroad, asking iu aid of the
poor, and the responses -were fairly good,
showing their enterprise is being appre
ciated. Ecl such a good, zealous and
pious work lias its humors. Prophetic
alarm soup ft a good thing. Itis as honest
as the raltlcMinke that, always springs
his rattle iK'fore he strikes or bites. 'ov
there are soups "which arc insinuating,
and give no alarm, prophetic or other.-vlf e;

birds, and fishes. Rut the prophetic ilarm
soup is honest. Vim can't get too Milck
with it. You take it in the spirit of
p phe j. and Mr. Cuddy's, for it Is
not moan cr sneaking with Its seductions.
Y-ju know what you get. It is impossible
to be ungrateful" bout prophetic alarm oi p.
Xo contortionist has ever been known to
look this gift soup in the mouth no matter
what he may be able to do with a gift
honse. Xot Ihe least valuable and charit
able pail of Mr.Cuddy'sspicndld benevolence
was that thedinnei was absolutely free anl
no handicap.
At the Children's Hospital there was an
excelw-nt ditner, and, besides, many good
things else to amuse tnd make the lline
people very happy.
At the Municipal Lodging House Capt.
Culler die i.ot give a dinner to his ocoa
sionaW. They all worked and were able
to buy a layout for tli"inselvcs. Capt,
Caller, however, at. 1 p. m., made a
spread with tuikey and other tilings to
his seven employes. They had a right, sood
ami mcrry tim?. The speeches were in
formal but good.
The Associated Charities, while not
dining people, did a splendid work in con
nection with the churches. By the aid of
these, thirty families were commended to
the, good will of the CentralUnlon Mission,
and dinncs were provided for them all.
Tlie bcaucyof this work'is that there is no
imposition on public or private charity.
The SaU:-i:'! Army people "were at borne
all day. Three or the fairest of the evin
gclists were round washing the disties
after breakfast, more often the iwrtion
of Marj than or Martha.
'Going to have turkey today?" they
were asked.
"No." il chorus.
'Why lotV"
"Haven't gol ;.ny."
But they had a good dinner on
chicken, potatoes and plum pudding. It
was a family .ifTair, but on the ;JS)th
they are to dine 1,000 ioor women piicl
childrer at Central .Market Hall. Most of
the churches are co-operating. The -,taff
captain said that they are getting
supplies of money, and they expect large
consignments of provisions today. It will
be the charitable event of the season.
At the poorhouse SIG old ami decrepit
people att turkey ad libitum all day.
At tic jail Capt. Leonard supervised a
great ic-ist for his Four Hundred Whites
and noble Six nundrcd Black and Yellow
Brigade. They dined ul 3 p. in. in
great btyle and apparent happiness. As
between liberty and dipt. Leonard's
dinner, it it easy to guess what the diners
would have chosea. fcjrS
In 11 e morning the jail, workhouse and
almshouse weie limited by a committee of
the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Tim in
mates were given tobacco, cigars and rood
advice.
Tiie biggest crowd at anyone place was
at St. Elizabeth's Asylum. Elev.-n hun
dred sat down to a Christmas dinner at, 1
p. m The regulation turkey was present
and absent in turns. Tlie feast at this in
stitution Is always of the lirst order, and
there is nobody in Washington "who did

Everything taken into consideration, th-'re

courts, presided over by .ludges Kimball

recruits since last Christtnas's court tes
sion, as was evidenced by the number of
old offenders who answered the roll call.
IL was plainly a Christmas crowd, and
the police judges dealt with them ac
cordingly, being very lenient in imposing
sentences in all cases not of an aggravated
nature. As a matter of fact, nearly all
the offenses charged were the results of
Christmas spteces In which no one was
seriously injured. In an, there were forty
se'en prisoners called to the bar to answer
to various charges.

"i'es, they arc admitted to our classes

"I had in one of my classes a few
years ago a girl hardly old enough to
handle a plane. But she was enthusiastic
and went in "ft'ith her whole heart.
"I worked along with her through the
first year and she made several little
things veiy nicely. Then in the vacation
she vent up to her home in Vermont for
the summer, aiunvhnt do you suppose she
brought back as baggage'.' A trunk full
of stove wood from her grandfather
woodpile. It was bird's eye and curly

"At tht chinch which she attended they
had a jnctty table She took the meas

She worked away hard Avitb plane and

wood she built as pretty a table as you
