Thursday was ouo of th brightest,
clearest unl pleasantest days that could
be imagined, and consticuted one tiling
to be thaukful for, even if everything
luring the year past had gone wrong
with some. The sun lose bright iu a
cloudless ky and the weather contin
ued clear during the entire day, not
even a cloud as large as a "man' a hand
having the courage lo aliovr up and
mar tin; serenity of the day. This
weather is appreciated by everyone
after the trying snow of two weeks ago.
Very little business was done during
the day. The retailers who opened up
as usual in the morning closed up one
by one as trade grow slack towards
dinner time. There was not a larger
amount of drunkenness nor a greater
number of quarrels than oa any other
day, which 8eaks well for the city.

tures of the day.
Thanksgiving is not countud as pro
perly observed without the regulation
turkey among those who can afford it,
and as a result the turkeys nunibervcry
many less than before Thanksgiving.
The St. Nicholas Hotel led the van by
getting up a iirstelass dinner for invit
ed guests. The Gazette was repre
sented and testifies to its excellence.
The Sumner spread before its guests a
most excellent special dinner, and all
the hotels of the city did the same
square tiling.
The most appropriate event of the
day was the
at the new and spacious Presbytcriau
church on Douglas avenue. At 7:30,
when the services wen; opened, every
seat in the large room was taken, and
those who came in later were obiiged to
stand. Key. J. 0. Eastman opened by

This was followed by singing the an

was composed of representatives from
the choirs of each church, and tliw mu

Cohenour then followed by reading the
103d Psalm, and Kev. V. W. Welsh
read a short chapter, llev. Stephen
Smith offered a most fervent prayer
followed by singing ami the sermon of
the occasion was then delivered by Kev.
D. M. Brown, who held the close at
tention of his hearers throughout. All
who heard it pronounced the discourse
a well prepared one, requiring deep
thought, and most appropriate to the
occasion. A Gazette reporter was
present and secured the discourse iu
full, which we present on another page.
The services were closed by a prayer

altogether out of place.
The I'roUti of Nicc.
Capt. J. G. Clancey is up from Puer
to de Luna. He has just sold his herd
of fine sheep to Dinkel, Handy I5ros. &
Co.. for the neat sum of $22.000. This
includes the bunch of line ranis which
he recently brought with him from
Vermont. The new firm is composed
of Handy Uros, and Messrs. Geo. J.
Dinkel and J. S. Pishon, cashier anil
assistant cashier of the First National
Bank of this city. Mr. Clancey came
here some four years ago from Califor
nia with a small bunch of Hue sheep
and went on to a ranch on the Pecos.
He attended strictly to business, took
care of his herd, improved them and
cleared $18,000 by this sale. Some
people may think that sheep do not pay
so well, but these figures indicate the
j contrary. "Where the sheep walk there
is gold" is an old Spanish 'proverb and
vthe fortunes accumulated by New Mex
ico wool raisers demónstrate it. Wo
believe the Captain cannot do better
than reinvest in New Mexico. '
An overland outfit of ten wagons and
sixty head of horses passed through the
city this morning. They came from
north of Denver and will halt in New

will be paid for its return to this office.
Bell & Co., the plaza grocers and
bakers, give a very flattering report of
the fall trade in their line. It h as
largely increased over last year at the
same time. There is a much greater
demand for fancy groceries this season
than formerly which indicates an in
crease in this class of buyers. There
has been a ready sale for all classes of
poultry and game and they can hardly
keep up with the demand for chickens1'
turkeys, quail, etc. The town is grow
ing rapidly and their trade is keeping
pace with the general prosperity.

Tin Watt r Work.
Work is being crowded on the water
works, this pleasant weather, at a rapid
rate. There are now between seventy
and eighty men engaged on the several
mains ill progress of construction. The
main over Zion hill toward the M. E.
church is being laid in solid rock. The
dam, three-quarters of a mile above
the springs which is to furnish the sup
ply will be finished by next Tuesday.
The settlers are already completed and
in addition a large well has been dug in
order to guard against any possible
failure of water. This precaution was
thought necessary as it was feared that
large amounts of sediment might settle
above the dam and thus cut off' the llow
of water into the settlers for a time.
Should the present beautifurweather
hold out the works will be ready for use
in a very short time.
