Thanksgiving Day.
Of course the big turkey will suffer. It's
a natural consequence of Thanksgiving.
Everybody will have turkey, but overybody
won't have a fox hunt. This little slioe of
enjoyment is reserved for the Hon. Bill
Million. Hon. Tom McDcrmott. Hon. Sam
Parr and the other Honorables of the elite
who will have a joyous time. And when
Tom puts on his Dolly Vardun pants and
blows on the little bugle, then lookout for
winded horseflesh and weary canines.
Hon. Tom MucKinlay, he of theenlongated
lower extremeties, will, together with Hon.
Jas. Milligan, jr., and other toboggan sliders,
open a toboggan ranch on Monday, and
expect to reap a harvest of slides large
enough to go around among the public by
tho 25th.
Billy Taylor, Louis Hess and Charlie Irion
also have a gigantio scheme on hand. We
promised not to give it away, but as it's a
froBty morning, the publio shall have it. They
have 40 largo ostriohes from the California
ostrich farms on the read, and will give a
aeries of ostrich races in tho afternoon, to
give a variety to things.
The Undine nose Company will give a
grand ball Thanksgiving Eve., (Wednesday),
ae has been their custom for these many
years. It promises to eclipse anything at
tempted in the past, and If the preparations
count for anything, Ottawa will see some
thing worth its while.
Co. D. will open the skating rink to the
publio in the afternoon and evening, and as
the skates have been recently repaired,
everybody may have a good time.

Sen em the Sereue.
Seneca is a pretty little village of about
1,1)00 inhabitants, situated on the raging,
storm swept cnnawl," in the eastern por
tion of this bloominir county. It lies serene
ami peaceful between the higli bluffs, which
surrounding it on the north, northwest and
south, form an insurmountable barrier, alike
to tho howling blkzard of winter and the
hnt seorcliiinr winds of the south. These
bluffs bold many a tale of bygone years
which will bear unfolding, anu their wooded
crests guard their secrets well. There is,
however, one story, which they have allowed
to escape their remorseless grasp ; the pre
historic, but nover aged, tule of an Indian
maiden and her dusky lover, who plighted
their truth near an ancient oak, which Btood
on the north brow of the south bill, and
were foully murdered by a remorseless rival,
said remorsleHS rival afterward suffering
death at the stake. But then what western
hamlet in devoid of its Indian story and
well perhaps it won't do to dispute the
word of the "oldest citizen of Seneca."
There is one spot on the lovely bluffs that
has a fascination for the lover of true seoti
ment, marked by a white marble shaft here
and there, a square faced slab or a fallen
stone there is no mistaking it: the village
cemetery. Unlike the cemetery of the great
city, Seneca's cemetery is at ouce a place of
historic interest as well as of sorrow to each
and every inhabltant;uearly every citizen has
father, a mother, or someone dear, ly

living is ever ready to keep green the grass
and scatter fragrant blossoms. Here, then,

ing of snow, secure in their earth-bound
homes, lie those whose lips are sealed by the
everlasting stamp of death, watching, as
it were, over the daily lives of the breathing
while naught disturbs the silent hush of their
never ending watch.
Below, in the bustle of active life, the on
ward march toward metropolitanism is
appearent everywhere. Business blocks, of
solid brick and have reared themselves above
the razed or burned structures of frame, that
once passed for stores. Emerging from the
ancient custom of keeping everything, from
piano to a hairpin, under one roof, the
progressive business men have inaugurated
an individuality. Among the thriving bus
iness houses, Hon. Alexander Vaughey's
extensive dry goods and notion house, estab
lished the year before the flood, vies with
the comparatively new house of Harney
across the way. Walter Jones, an old Ottawa
boy, formerly behind Chas. Forbes' counter,
has held away a door or two north of Vaugh-
ey, and is struggling witu V. 11. iv. inomas,
over the profits on patent medicine. It fact,
since the "Big Kickapoo Inguns," with their
free show and " Wonderfull Pain Killer "
truck town, Jones and Thomas have been
advertising a soft glove contest, to keep up
with the procession. Charles Vail is a com
paratively new accession, he mends a
watch in two minutes and is said to be a
heart breaker. Bilharz, the tony dry-goods
man, is also an old Ottawa business man,
nd used to flnrish here twenty years Sgo.
Ellis & Robinson and G. A. Gerbert, the
gricultural impliment men and A. II.
Wheeler, the grocer, are old landmarks too
and need no more introduction than the mole
on a man's nose.
As far as fine residences go, Soneca can
pride herself on being able to hold her end
ahovo water. Most of them are on the good,
old square substantial plan, and are there to
stay. Among tho most striking In appear
ance are those of N, J. Rulison, David New-
port, F. M. Robinson, Walter Jones, J. W.
Ellis, Alex Vaughcy, (very recently finished),
D. J. Taylor, A. II. Wheeler and II. Bilharz.
Protty girls soores of them. When
Seneca docs want to put on style she simply
allows her handsome maidens to promenade
down the main street and stand in front of
Rulison's new bank. The effect of that
galoxy of beauty, outlined against the hand,
some brick structure, would be enough to
cause Johnson to erect another mammoth
tile faotory at Seneoa at once, would he but
gaze thereon.

Senecans haven't time to grow aldermanlo,
and a long felt want, left vacant by Toby
Withrow's departure, is still open to anyone

Theatre goers who remember Margaret

sou's ago, well remember the ltomeo of the
company, young Balvinl, who then traveled
ou his father's name, after the fashion of Fred
Grunt's late campaign in New York state. He
wasn't much; and his reading of tho open

thing like this; "Voto lida from yoncder

man braves his father's wrath and runs away
from homo and friends, to make a mark in

him. And young Salvini had. He mastered

Many men say I have a trotter. That may bo
true, but have they a race horse, that la the
question. Have they a horse who will go all
sorts of tracks, any kind of weather, have
they a horse that most always has his speed
and Is willing to carry tho clip, boat after
beat; is he level headed; is be handy, and bus
he the many other qualities required in a race
horse; There are few such horses, but to my
mind, one of the very few owned in this State
is Williams, 2:21, son of Combat and Uuntu
lctte by Dietutor. lie is now 5 yours old, was
started at 3 years old, aud has reduced his
record each year. Previous to 1887 he had
won 15 heats in 2:30 or better, this year he
has made a most remarkable campaign. I
have looked up his races as near as I could
and find ho has won 17 beats between 2:25 and
2:30, and 20 heats between 2:20 and 2:25 inclu
sive, a total of 37 heats in 2:80 or better, a
most wonderful showing, when we take into
consideration the fact that most of them were
over half mile tracks. I don't think my fig
ures are quite correct, but he has certainly
won that many heats, and perhaps ten more.
The brown stallion Stamboul is showing
himself to be a great llve-y ear-old. He won a
race at Los Angeles, Cal,, on the 10th ult., in
straight heats; lime, 2:18f, 2:21, 2:23K- He
is a richly bred fellow, his sire being Sultan
(2:24). His dam is Fectwing, by Kysdyk's
Hambletouiun, and Flectwing's dam was by
George M. Patchen (2:23.) Fleetwlng is also
the dam of Ruby (2:111). Daughters of the
Old Hero of Chester are rapidly coming to the

The four-year-old pacer Arrow Is the won
der of tho season. He has started in ten ra
ces, and won them all, beating such old earn-
palguers as Arab (2:164). He stands 15.2,
weighs 050 pouuds, wears live-ounce shoes all
around, and has made a record of 2:14. lie
is full of warm blood, and traces through
several lines to Sir Archy, Diomed's most
famous son. Ills utest victory was over the
pacing sfalliou L. C. Lee, and in this ho paced
tho second quarter of the fourth heat in 33

The three-year-old filly, Susie S., by Hy
las, is one of the speediest trotters of her a:e
in the world. In tho race at St. Louis a few

in 32i seconds, a 2:10 gait.

to gain 2:30 honors this season. Ambassador
himself has a record 2:214. His dam was by
American Clay.
It is rumored that Kentucky brrecders are
having an attack of Guy Wilkes (2:14) on

The famous pacer Johnson (2:00) lately

which were paced in 2:11, 2:11, 2:12S'.
The effort was not a success, but he made the
first mile in 2:ll.V. and the second in 2J3K,
after which the attempt was abandoned. A
light shower accounts for the time in the se
