The little waifs at Woody Crest, the home for
poor children maintained by Mis? Helen Miller
Gould at Frvington-on-Hudson, enjoyed the
novelty of sating a Thanksgiving dinner which
had been provided through their own personal
efforts, aided by money furnished by Miss Gould.
Except for a dozen big fat turkeys, which Miss
Gould sent to the home, the little inmates raised
their own chickens, potatoes, celery, eggs and
other holiday delicacies which went to make up
a fine dinner.
Promptly at l'_' o'clock the sixteen boys who
comprise the Inmates of the home sat down at
a long table in the big dining room, covered
with a spotless white «loth, with silver knives
and forks. Miss Miriam Jagger, the matron,
offered a prayer of thanksgiving. In which the
little hoys took part. Then the big turkeys
and the chickens were brought in by the ser
vants, followed by sweet and white potatoes,
celery, cranberry sauce, currant jelly, brown
bread, pumpkin pie, plum pudding, fruits and
nuts. Dinner over, the boys adjourned to the
big playroom, where one of them, an eight-year
old chap, offered this for the many kind acts of
Miss Gould:
"Oh. Lord, we are so happy. We thank Thee
for the many good things Miss Gould has done.
She has given us a nice home, plenty to eat, lots
of clothes and lots of other good things."
"Who puts the thoughts Into Miss Gould's
heart to do so much for you?" Matron Jagger
asked a little tot.
"God In Heaven." he. answered quickly. "He
tells Miss Gould to help us. and we are awful
thankful to Him."
Miss Gould made a special trip to Lyndhurst,
her country seat nt [rvingtoa. late yesterday to
look after the comforts of her employes, each of
whom received a turkey, and her little wards.
She made a flying trip to Woody Crest, to see.
that every one was well and to wish them a
happy Thanksgiving.
There is nothing that Miss Gould cherishes
more highly than .- little reed fruit basket made
by one of the boys, which was given to her to
day by ten-year-old John Hiller. The basket
was Oiled with large chestnuts, which the whole
class of sixteen youngsters had gathered under
th- trees on Woody Crest mountain. The ban
ket was Intended as a Thanksgiving offering.
and little "Johnny" said in presenting it to
"We are so happy here. Miss Gould, that we
want to return our thanks to you."
"You are all good boys," replied Miss Gould.
••God will rako care of you if you are good
Maybe when Christmas comes around Santa

Causes for thanksgiving on the part of the
nation and the city was the principal topic on
which ministers preached yesterday In Thanks
giving Day services in the city churches.
Thanks for the growing power of the nation
and the eminence It had attained tinder th»
administration of President McKinley were the
dominant notes of the sermons, while the vic
tory of the reform forces over Tammany was
alluded to in many instances as marking the be
ginning of a new era for the city. McKinley the
man and McKinley the President were eulo
gized. President Roosevelt was hailed as his
worthy successor, and predictions were made
that his administration, following the lines laid
down by his predecessor, would still further
lead the nation onward and upward.
At St. Paul's <"hapel the Rev. William Mon
tague Oner in his sermon said that there would
be less law breaking, less hypocrisy and less cor
ruption under the system which opened th^
saloon on Sunday for certain hours than under
that which, while purporting to keep the saloon-;
closed throughout Sunday, allowed them to do
business at all hours on that day,- and fur
nished the means for corruption and blackmail.

Abraham Lincoln, and Grant— men who stand

In our hearts to-day because nationalism has
given place to internationalism. America has
passed from boyhood into manhood. Her con
tinental nationalism has given place to world
wide power. American expansion was the re
sult of divine impulsion. No President or po
litical party could have caused it. When the
Hawaiian Islands were dropped into our lap.
did we not pitch them into the sea again.
Again no President or political party can
stop our expansion. America has en
tered upon a new career grander than
ever before in the history of nations.

constant effort to uplift, its warning not to do
wrong and its inspiration, advice and encour
agement? We have, with God's help, won a
victory. Purity, honesty and civic righteous
ness have triumphed. We are to have good men
to administer the affairs of the city. We have
reason to hope that we in this neighborhood will
hereafter have our rights and will be protected.
drew's Church— Our nation is practically at
peace. Every day of the year has added to our
prestige at home and abroad. It Is something
to be thankful for that at last rulers have been
selected for their character and ability. A city
will never be successful if it is run in the inter
ests of one class and in disregard to the needs
of others. The city must never stamp wrong
with the label of right and never license sin.
Sunday is a day of rest and worship, and special
privileges must he denied those whose trade is
dangerous and iniquitous. It is a blessed thing
when we rind that righteous men. who will
punish wrongdoing and rule righteously, have
been chosen to govern us.
The Rev. Dr. W. S. RAINSFORD. St. George's
Church— The curse of the American people is
their readiness to believe the worst of the men
they have elected to office. History shows that
public office makes men better, and jet no
sooner does a man achieve office in the United
States by the votes of his fellow men than those
who voted for him because of his good qualities
criticise him offensively and announce publicly
that they believe that he has suddenly become
vile. The American people should be thankful
God ha- given them more than He has Riven
any other people. They should be thankful for
William McKinley and thankful that when that
great faithful heart ceased to beat there was a
man like Roosevelt to step into the vacant place.
There was never any reason to despair, although
there were things in New-York hard to endure.
Do not be discouraged if after a few years *«
appear to return to them. We shall never sink
bo low again. New- York has taken a ' step
forward. It has taken many steps forward.
Even under the present administration it was
nothing like as dirty as it was eighteen years
ago. when 1 first came to this church. Put your
trust in God and help the administration as
much as you can. Indiscriminate criticism can
do no good, and will only make the return of
the reactionary force* more certain. The worst
of most reform administrations is their imprac
ticability Mr Low cannot give us a perfect gov
ernment, and he ought not to try. If he does
try the city will be in the hands of Tammany
again in two years. Justice Jerome as District
Attorney cannot give us a perfect administra
tion of his great office. If he tries to do SO he
will do more harm than good. They must do
what they can. of course, but they must be
practical : We must help them all we can. and
we shall not help by criticising every action
taken that does not agree exactly with the
action we should have taken under like condi
tions In any event, we may all be thankful
that the municipal life of New-York has taken a
step forward and that the entire municipal life
of the United States has taken the step forward
with New-York.
outh Chur-li. Brooklyn— But I confess that the
nation has been near to the shadow of grief,
thai the marks of a great tragedy are stilt
keenly felt We are rebellious still in the death
of our dearly beloved President, but who shall
say that a greater happiness Is not now his? No
other .vent gave him greater good fortune than
Ills sudden death hi the midst of his brilliant
career and splendid manhood. hat greater
tribute has a man ever had than that which
was paid to William McKinley in recognition of
his worth when, for ten days men felt the in-
Huence of his life most keenly, and. when, at
that last moment, all traffic was stopped and
heads were bared in reverence? The cup of poi
son for Socrates, the execution of Savonarola
the assassin's bullets for Abraham Lincoln and
William Mi-Kinley-these are the four great
'strokes in the history of the world that have
made for good through the wisdom of an over
ruling Providence. They have brought about not
national calamity, but individual uplifting. In
