The Day Passed Very Quietly
in Our Village.
The Usual Amount of Feasting is Followed
by an Entertainment in the Evening.
Thanksgiving day was very quietly
obseved in the village yesterday. The
Department Store and post office closed
it noon and the usual Thanksgiving
feast was enjoyed at the several hostel
rios and numerous cottages. The pleas
ures of the day were brought to a close
by a very enjoyable entertainment in the
Village Hall in the evening.
At Holly Inn, which opened for the
season that morning under the manage
ment of Mr. Allen T. Treadway, the fol
lowing excellent dinner was provided:

Boiled Salmon, Ilollandaise Sauee

The Casino, which was the first house
to open for business In the village this
season, has steadily increased in popular
ity under the efficient management of
Mr. F. II. McAlpine and his estimable
wife, and now has its complement of
guests. Yesterday the managers deter
mined to serve a genuine New England
Thanksgiving dinner one that would re
mind our Northern exiles of their homes
so far away and their efforts were
crowned with great success. Over ninety
people partook of good things provided,
and that all were officiently and quickly
served is evidenced by the fact that all
meat orders were filled within thirty
four minutes after the doors were opened
for dinner. The menu included most of
the New England dainties and all were
well cooked, and but for the bright warm
sunshine, balmy breezes and beautiful
green landscape the guests might well
have fancied themselves partaking of
Thanksgiving cheer in their own North
ern homes. All the guests were well
satisfied, and the managers once more
demonstrated their ability to conduct the
Casino in a manner pleasing to its pa
trons. Following is the
Cream of Pea Soup
Roast Sirloin of Beef, Dish Gravy
Roast Young Turkey, Cranberry Sauce
Sweet Po ta toes
Apple Pie Pumpkin Pie
Vanilla Ice Cream
Apples Nuts Raisins
