Driftwood from the Bowery's
Wrecks, the Sick, Lame and
Halt All Fed and Happy.
Incidents of the spirit of Thanksgiv
ing Day could be found all over ihia
supposedly h'-arti»*9(» city yesterday.
Hut nowhere were there more j-triking
ones than along that uncbartad chan
nel of the dt] black waters", strewn
with human wrecks— the Bowery.
A broad shouldered man. twenty-five
years old. with a face that was pale but
showed lines of strength and refine
m nt, half whispered when lie as-k»*d
for assistance at the A.-ry branch of
the Young Men's Christian Association.
No. 1 ■'■.■: Bowery, three nights ago. He
was hungry, but his voice ama aai weak
on that account, apparently, as much as
through a highly appreciative sense of
his i«H»ition.
His imagination, il was Iwliev-d.' had
made him pale. The secretary of the
Bowery branch asked for his name and
certain other facti. There was hesita
tion on the man's part and a nervous
twitching about tii mouth and eyes.
One of the rules of th«* Institution is
that a man must give his name. An
other rule is that he moat l^lt the truth.
•I gue*s I won't bother you after all."
said the applicant, hurriedly.
"Better trust me. said H. W. Hoot,
the secretary. "You need help, you say.
and I believe you. But if you can't con
fide in me. why should I be expected to
hejp you?"
It was time for dinner. Ti • lights of
the Bowery were being turned "n. The
crowds and the noise seemed more than
the young fellow could face again— at
least until h*- had had something to eat.
Five cents a meal is the nomli charge
made by the Bowery branch. He didn't
have five cents. H^ had started toward
the d'X>r. his Jaw set.

The name he gave t-> Mr. Ho«>t was that
! of a man it. N- m England. A letter of
I inquiry wai immediately forwarded, as
jis the custom of th<» association.
j Yesterday, as all New Yorkers knew,
I ■was Thanksgiving Day. Thn prospect
for the square shouldered young man
' did not seem bright, as he was running
! up an account for meals and lodging, and
■ his efforts of Wednesday .... a job
} were unsuccessful. He did not talk
| about himself, 'but appeared unusually
grateful and anxious to show appreci*
: tion to Mr. Hoot fi-*r the help shown him.
•■ He asked f'>r something to do. and was
• accommodated on Thanksgiving morn
i ing by sJag permitted to help in the
! kitchen, as seven hundred men were to
be •■! during the day.
a few rr - es after he started to work
! among the pots and puna he was called
• to t: • secretary's private offi -e and con
! fronted with a letter from tlie man In
j New England whus*> name the joung fel

j from his uncle, a wealthy manufacturer.
t In it waa inclosed a sealed letter ad

I the secretary, to be used In the unfort

Chicago. Nov. C 5. — Cupid rivalled the

More than 1,000 Chicagoans were mar

Mr. Salm'jnson bases his figures on the
fact th:«t 561 licenses were obtained
from his eflsre in the two or three days
preceding th<" holiday, most of the ap
plicants stating they were to be wedded
on Thanksgiving.
Mr. Salmonson said the rasa for
