The "groat American pie-belt" growa
broader every year and has passed the Fakes
f the north on the one side , and the Ohio ,
Cumberland and Icnnosacc on the other. In
Havre and Mai-eciHc * one can ceo the neat
little printed phrase , "Pie Amcrlealne , " and
on the carte du jour of the Mcna hotel , just
under the shadow of the Sphinx , the homely
entry , "Plo do Pomplon a la New York. "
Whllo the demand for the delicacy reached
a maximum on Thanksgiving and Christmas ,
It Is constant the year through , and since
canning and cold storage enabled the lover
of the golden vegetable < to gratify his desires
ot all seasons , It baa been found In every
fauhlormblo hotel and restaurant of the
metropolis on the dally bill ot fare.
Thursday morning , for example , skillful
cooks , uuder the dlretlon of eminent chefs ,
will be making pumpkin pies which will
brloa joy to thousands before midnight.
At < thc Fifth Avenue hotel the culinary
lord U Charles Prestlnari. Hero Is his own
formula for the pumpkin pies for which
that house Is noted : "One quart pumpkin
four ogga , one gill morasses , four ounces
sugar , two ouiicei butter , two ttaspoonfuls of
ginger , one tcaapoonful of cinnamon , one-
half tcaEpoonful of nutmeg and one-halt
teuspoonful of salt. This makes a rich , full-
flavored , heavy bodied pie. With a piece of
good EngAsh or American cheese it is a
perfect meal by Itself. "
Down town , under the chimes of Trinity ,
is the Cafe Savarln. The dcatlnlcs of the
kitchen are managed by a delightful
Frenchman , Edward Laperruquo. With all
the noblesao ot a high-minded ohof , he gives
In explicit terms hi * method of making
pumpkin pics.
"Cut two pounds of a g-od pumpkin In
slices ; suppress the feeds and peel ; put Into
a saucepan with come water over a brisk
Ore. Drain and press the pulp through a
sieve. Mix with eight eggs , little ginger ,
llttlo cinnamon , nutmeg , two ounces of
nulled butter and ono quart milk. Stir
wdl. Have your pie plate llnoJ the same
as for other pies fill with your prepara
tion and bake In oven about forty min
utes. "
If the directions are followed the result
la a pie as light and Tioautlful as a cuatard
with a warm tropical flavor and bouquet.
Philippe G. Goctz Is the distinguished
chef at Sherry's. His pies are naturally
Chefs d'oouvrre , and among thorn the pump
kin holds the front rank. In his own hand-
wrltlns he tells the world the secret of his
"Cook some nice pumpkins and drain
them on a sieve. When all the water is
gen , press them through a fine sieve , which
will leave you a fine pulp. Take one-half
pound sugar , frur yolks of eggs , four whole
omeft , a little nutmeg and mace" two table-
spoontuli of * molasses , one quart of cream
and ono and a halt pints of the pulp. Mix
I1 together and fill the plea. This will
make two good-sized pies. "
This comes quite dose to the old-fash-
toned recipes and will produce a BID oth
velvet-cream of rare delicacy and refresh
ing power.
Slmplret of all Is the recipe of "Oscar , "
the Inimitable major-domo of tbo Waldorf-
Astoria. He tried many formulas , but found
that the one which gave the deepest satis
faction waa one In which the delicate flavor
of the vegetable waa not complste-ly burled
beneath Che spices. His advice is :
"Boll and strain the pumpkins , allowing
for three pints , two tablcspoonfuls of flour ,
four eggs , one pound of sugar , ono tablespoonful -
spoonful of ground ginger , one tcaspoonful
of salt and two quarts of milk. Mix all well
together while the pumpkin is hot Butter
a plo dish , line It with a thin layer of short
paste , put the mixture. Into It and bake In a
moderate even for a little less than one
hour. Serve the pie while hot.
This makes a pie almost as light as char
lotte rusie and EO palatable as to make the
eater follow the example of Oliver Twlsr

Tha bag pudding of the seventeenth century

Even old-fashioned homc-mado bread baa
been driven to the wall by the products ot
Parisian and Viennese bakeries , by Parker
House rolli and the uncanny creations ot
Graham , Kellogg and other diet reformers
and dcformere. Out the pumpkin pie of 1898 ,

Old-Time Formula * .
The first In point of time Is an heirloom
of the Admaa family and dates from the
early part of the eighteenth century. It la
eloquent to one who can read between tlio
liner and tells of a fremrous and well-fed
race , one which was bound to produce
jurists , scholars , oratorB and presidents.
From the plea made pursuant to Its provi
sions sprang J hn Adams and John Qulncy
Adams , two of the noble names In American
annals. Here Is ( he recipe :
1 cup pumpkin boiled down quite thick.
V4 cup muscovado.
1 egg.
1 piece of butter big as an egg.
1 cup of cream and milk.
A llttlo salt. >
A little cinnamon , clove , nutmeg , allsplco
and ginger.
BakeIn a quick oven thirty minutes.
The Aldcn family has an ancient recipe ,
for which extreme antiquity Is claimed
by auch members of the family as belong
to the Mayflower society. Some go as far
as to declare that It was this formula
which enabled the fair Prlscllla to charm
Miles Blandish and John Alden. It runs as.
follows :
1 pint pumpkin.
1 egg.
1 gill molasses.
14 pound muscovado.
1 piece of butter big as an egg.
1 pill of milk.
A llttlo cinnamon , nutmeg and ginger.
Dake forty minutes.
The Wilsons of Hartford , Conn. , can trace
their reclpo back to 1810. It shows a slight
pi ogress over the two more ancient ones ,
but not enough to justify comment. It
reads : >
1 large cup of boiled pumpkin.
1 tablespoonful flour stirred up In % cup
1 piece of butter large a a walnut. ,
V , cup yellow augar.
% tcaapoonful salt.
A little nutmeg , clove , cinnamon and
Oaks forty-minute * .
It will be seen that In 100 years no radical
change had occurred. Undoubtedly many
experiments had been tried and many varia
tions tested , but all had been found wanting. '
Out of these attempts undoubtedly sprung
the squash pie and the sweet potato pie.
Both of those are good dishes ; they are
sightly , also Blllng ; but to compare them
with pumpkin pie , golden , brown-barred ,
aromatic and fioul-jatlafying IB simply
sacrll'go. '
In the present century the change has
been less than In the last. There has been
an Improvement In the undorcrust or lining. '
Flour Is better and more wholesome today
than ever before and the making of pie crust
and pastry has been developed Into both a
science and an art. Though the lining hat
changed for the better , the filling Is the samu
glorious golden paste , delicately browned on
the surface , as It was In the days of George
A New England Hcclpe.
Mrs. A11 co Morse Earlc , In her Interesting
work on ' 'Customs and Fashions In Old Now
England , " gives the following recipe for
making pumpkin plo , taken from ad old book
which , the says , was used by many genera
tions of New England cooks :
"Take about halfe a pound of Pomplon and
slice It , a handful of Tyme , a little
Rosemary , Parsley and Sweet Majoram
slIpFcd'nft the stalks , and chop them email ,
then take Cinnamon , Nutmeg , Pepper and
six Cloves and beat them , take ten Eggs and
beat them , then mix them , and beat them
all together , and put In OB much sugar as you
think , then fry them like a froiz , after It Is
fryed lot It etand till It be cold , then fill
your Pye , take sliced Apples thlnne rounde-
waycs , and lay a row of the Frolz and layer
of Apples with Currans betwixt the layer
while your Pye Is fitted , and put in a good
deal of sweet butter before you close it ,
when the Pye la baked take six yelks ot
Eggs , some White Wine or Vcrgla , and
make a Caudle ot this , but not too thlcke ,
cut up the Lid and put It In , stir them wcl
together whilst the Eggs and Pomplons be
not perceived and 10 serve It up. "

2Vational Festival ,
When the 14.000,000 American families
gather about their H.000,000 turkeys on
Thursday next , what causes for thanksgiving
will they find In the events of the last year ?
Some of the most eminent men of the coun
try have written their opinions on this ques
tion. Fighting leaders , General Mlrcs , Com
modore I'hlllp and Colonel Roosovclt , mem-
bora of the cabinet , Lyman J , Gage and
John D. Long , Financiers Russell Sage and
Henry Clone , and other famous men repre
senting different careers In life , have con
tributed their sentiments , and they agrco
that not for many years have Americans had
BO many reasons for observing Thanksgiving
as a great national festival1.
A war of worldwide significance carried
to complete succeed In 100 days , an enlarged
commerce , which nlll thlo year make an
American city the greatest shipping port In
the world , a reunited country from which the
last trace of factional bitterness has boon
wiped out , the Anglo-American understand
ing , the settlement of our disputes with
Canada , genera } .business prosperity , Im
portant scientific discoveries , bountiful har
vests , Klondike gold , Dewey and all the
other heime of the war , are mentioned as
among the things for which we bavo to be
grateful on November 24 ; 1808.
Secretary Gagr Telia of Prosperity *
Secretary of the Treasury Lyman J. Gage
writes : "In the midst of general rejoicing which
comes with peace after strife let us not fall
to measure the good we are enjoying from
other causes. It has not been many months
since Industrial and commercial depression
were widespread , and both at home and
abroad grave doubts existed as to our finan
cial ability , if not In tact as to our financial
Integrity. All this waa reflected by grave
"Now there la an era of good feeling. The
tldo of hope for the future runs high , and
confidence Is master of the situation. A
marvelous change has been wrought. Since
the days oftrla.1 our harvests have twice
surpassed all former yields , and our sur
plus stores of grain have gone to feed the
people of other lands less bountiful. The
conjunction of unusually largo harvests with
increased foreign demand has brought bet
ter prices , and those who work the soil
have thus been raised 1o a higher plane
of living and happiness. Excepting now
and then some particular industry Is re- !
strlctod by peculiar conditions , not those
of general application , there is everywhere
activity which can only be measured by
comparison with former prosperous years.
All the evidences point to the fact that
commerce , both domestic and foreign , Is ex
panding rapidly. The Treasury department
will report this year that New York has
become the greatest shipping port of the
world. Is this not a wonderful achieve
ment for the republic which Is but a little
over a century old ? London and Hamburg ,
thrifty though they be , after centuries of
vast trade must give way to this new mart
of the wt-st. Now York Is but one of our
great cities. In the nearby years others ,
now giving Indication of a growing trade ,
will of' necessity respond to the constantly
increasing demands of commerce. On our
western shoresithere yet remains to be de
veloped a vast empire , one which will i
participate In the rich trade of the coun
tries 'bordering on the Pacific. For our '
present commercial and Industrial strength
we have abundant reason to be thankful , yet
more so Indeed for what the future holds
in store. '
"A ninlitconrj War , " Snyn Roosevelt.
Colonel Theodore Roosevelt said : "From
the point of view of the nation and
of every patriotic American as well It seems
to me that we should bo especially thankful
this year for our success in a righteous war
and for the onrarged opportunities which It
has brought. " I
Henry Clews , the veteran of Wall street ,
writes as follows : "Wo should be thankful
for our brilliant achievement In whipping
the Spaniards , for the success of our ( at-
tonipt to advance the cause of humanity
and freedom and for the worldwide advant
ages which are resulting to the nation there
"Another advantage which has come to
us with the recent war and which Is not to
be gainsaid Is the fact that the pride of the
American people is exalted with the knowl
edge that the same spirit which Inspired the
men of ' 76 and ' 61 still dwell ? among us. It
has brought to all the nations of the world
a recognition ot the United States as a first-
class power.
"In the business world there Is much to
be thankful for. Business Interests gener
ally have felt the Impetus which has come
with our now awakening. During the year
we have emerged from a period of depres
sion and entered one of expansion. In the
face of rising .Instead of falling values , of
new opportunities for Investment , and of a
healthful activity In all lines of Industry ,
the business man can cat his Thanksgiving
turkey In a thankful , cheerful and hopeful
spirit. "
Dr. Field Glories In the War.
Dr. Henry U. Field , the eminent clergy
man and editor ot the Evangelist , declares :
"I am thankful that one dark blot has
been removed from the face of civilization
during the present year. I am thankful
for the glorious success of our war with
Spain , and thankful that I have lived to
see It.
"Lot me not ha misunderstood. War Is
a terrible thing , but there are other things
which are worse , and one of them was the
cruel starving of helpless men , women and
children In Cuban pen cities. Thanks bt >
to God , America has dona away with that
crime against humanity.
"I believe that the recent war with Spain
was Inevitable. I know something of the
Spanish people , and I know that they would
never voluntarily have relinquished their
claim upon the Island of Cuba. There was
no cur * for this festering sore except the
knife , and 1 rejoice that the operation Us
now safely over.
"Therefore I am one of those who glory
in our recent war , and who see In Its course
the hand of the Almighty. In the general
exultation over our complete succcsi we are
apt to forget the terrible risks which wo
ran when we look up the cause of humanity
and the remarkably small loss we have sus
tained In championing that cause. Truly
God's mercy has been manifested to us in
many ways within the past twelvemonth ,
and In the midst of our rejoicings at the
coming of Thanksgiving we must not forget
that fact. "
Secretary Lome's Sentiment * .
Secretary of the Navy John D. Long says :
"Let us as a nation return thanks for
abundant harvests : for a reunion closer than
aver before of all sections of the country ;
for the early return of peace and the ter
mination of the recent war , with o few
casualties ; for the enjoyment of'civil and
rellgioui liberty ; for our Institutions of ed
ucation and the common schoil ; for free
government and for a country In which the
Individual , high or low , rich or poor , rather
than any class , la at once the ruler and
the beneficiary. "
President Jacob Gould Schurmaa of Cor
nell said : "Tbo American whoso heart Is
not filled with devout thankfulness on
November 24 , 1S98 , must be Indeed
poor in spirit. Whether or not
ho approves of tbo political results
that seem certain to follow that conflict
thcro Is a common ground for thanksgiving
to the guiding providence which brought us
through the war with so great glory and so
llttlo loss , for the splendid achievements of
our soldiers and sailors , for the noble sacri
fices and generous deeds which the past
months have witnessed.
"Tho world of science haste bo thankful
for Important new discoveries and the world
of education for enlarged opportunities ol
applied usefulness. Speaking for Cornel !
university and for those .who are especially
Interested In ita welfare , I may say that wo
have just passed through Uic most success
ful year In our history. It has brought us
new friends , broadened our field of work
I and bleesed us In many ways. I think , too ,
that most of our sister Institutions can rc-
gratifying progress.
"All In all , the country over , we can look
. back upon exceptional benefactions within
the last year , nud next Thursday should be
for us all a great national festival of.thanks
giving. "
Thankful for National Progress.
Russell Sags finds reason for thankfulness
In America's advance among the nations of
the world. Ho writes : "The people of this
country have abundant causes for giving
thanks this year. Guided and sustained by
an almighty providence , wo have accom
plished that which has astonished the peoples
ples of the entire world. In nil history no
such marvelous achievement Is rccorled.
Strong in a righteous and holy cause , we
have within 100 days overthrown the
tyranny of one of the oldest and mightiest
dynasties and given freedom and happiness
to an oppressed people. Where now Is the
rule of Spain ? Her powers are gone for
ever , and her barbarous hand falls help-
| Icssly by her side. Her arrogance and
cruelty have received a rebuke that waa In
evitable. Rich and fertile lands have be
come ours , and all In a space ot time so
short that the mind can hardly realize It.
But this Is not the thing for which wo
should be most thankful. To my mind , the
greatest of all Is our advance among the
nations of the earth. Not as far back as
the beginning of this century we were con
sidered but llttlo better than barbarians ,
and reckoned sixth or seventh among na-
lions. Today the greatest and most power
ful people in. the world openly acknowledge
us as second only to Itself. This eccms
wonderful , but ytt It Is true. It Is a mat
ter for great rejoicing that as an entire people
ple we recognize what we owe England for
her openly expressed friendship throughout
the war with Spain. No other thing so
surely made for our success , and wo are
bound to the mother country by ties that
nothing can sunder. This Is not alone for
our good , nor for that of our land ; it is
for the betterment of the entire civilized
"Speaking one language and Inspired by
the same high purpose , the two peoples will
bring about a higher and nobler civilization
wherever they may go hand in hand. That
England feels this as fully as wo do there
can bo no doubt , and In her present trying
situation It must be very gratifying to her
to know the warm friendship that exists for
her on this side ot the water. These are
sentiments not to bo voiced In a boastful
spirit , and it is therefore very fitting that
the whole nation should enter heartily Into
the season of thanksgiving named by the
president and offer thanks to Him whoie
hand guided us through It all.
"That through It all God has seen fit to BO
brcsa us with prosperity that the burdens of
a war have fallen so lightly upon us Is an
other reason for the greatest gratitude.
Surely there Is cause for all to give thanks
this' ' year. "

squadron comes the following written by
Commodore Philip : "Wo should be

patriots enough among them to avert
the ruin of the country. The effirts to ex
pand our territory and enlarge our

ness in time of war.

General Nelson A. Miles writes :
"The one thing above all others for which
It seems to me the American people should
rejoice this year Is that they have Inherited
from their ancestors the spirit of liberty ,
courage , gelf-sacrlfico and humanity.
"Early In tbo present year wo wakened
up to the fact that wo had a duty to per
form. It waa a duty of humanity. It was
a difficult task. Our Inherited sense of right
and justice is so strong that we could not
forsake It When It became evident that we
could only discharge this duty by war we
did not shrink from that. The whole coun
try aroused Itself. Practically all our re
sources were put at tbe command of this
duty. Men everywhere were willing to
sacrifice their Interests , their affections , |
even their liven , In order to save the na- j

"In my position in the army I waa con
stantly In contact with men who were
willing In this way to sacrifice everything
to this lento of humanity and justice.
When we began the war we found wejiad a
difficult task. We had to cross the ocean
to find our enemy ; we bad to do our work
in an atmosphere utterly foreign to our own
and In the worst season of the climate , but
no one faltered. On the contrary , work
could not be done fast enough to suit any
body. In an Incredibly short time our arm >
and navy confronted the enemy In both the
Islands and the waters of the Atlantic and
Pacific , There was no hesitation In striking
and the gratifying results were accomplished
