For the first time in. the history of the
meeting of the two teams, Central
High has been taken away on a trip to
the country for "secret** practice.
Shorter Post office Hours
Active preparations for the holiday
occupied citizens to-day, preparations
mostly being in the nature of filling the
larder for the big dinner. More and
more Thanksgiving Day is getting to
be the time for family* gatherings and
hundreds of reunions will be held
around heavily laden tables. Many per
sons were disappointed this morning at
being compelled to pay thirty to forty
cents a pound for turkeys, but farmers
had no difficulty in getting rid of the
birds at that price. Farmers, expecting
to get rid of many chickens to persons
with non-turkey pocket bonks, were dis
appointed and chickens were not great
ly in demand. Materials for pumpkin
pies and cranberries sold well.
Xo city, county or State offices will
be open to-morrow and all business
places in the city will be closed, to
give the employes a chance to observe
the holiday. Schools will close this aft
ernoon to remain closed until Mondav
Business of the railroads running
into Harrisburg will be curtailed as
much as possible to-morrow. Troliev
men and policemen will be the onl'v
persons to work full time. Fifteen
bluecoats will work overtime at the
football game in the afternoon. Holi
' « hours be observed at the post
offices The main post office and Hill
and Maclay street stations will be
closed from 1(1 a. m. until midnight.
Carriers will make one delivery in the
morning. The regular evening collec
t ions will be ma.ie.
Turkeys Touch 40 Cents
j The markets this morning were
swamped with cranberries, which at first
j sold for 10 cents a quart, but finally
| dropped to 8. Several hundred dressed
chickens were taken back home by
j tanners. They said that, while turkevs
i sold very well, the demand for chickens
j was not large.
Hundreds bought turkeys for their
I 1 hanksgivmg dinner, while those who
| could not afford this luxury, instead of
j buying chickens, bought oysters, or. at
least, this was the opinion expressed by
, the farmers who had killed large n'im
-1 bers of their fattest hens, expecting a i
heavy demand from the Thauksgivinir
Bhoppers. b :
While the dealers in the central part
of the town were selling dressed tur
keys for thirty cents a pound, the same ]
; price as charged last year, many of the ;
farmers sold theirs for as high as fortv i
Flat prices in many instances were j
quoted for turkeys, chickens, ducks and '
geese, many farmers 'refusing to weigh
them. V\ hile there were not very
many ducks and geese in the markets, j
selling at fifteen cents a pound, live!
weight, the dealers found it most diffi- j
cult to dispose of them.
Toward the end of market the price 1
of chickens started on a steady decline
and kept it up until the last farmer j
had reluctantly left, which was several
hours later than usual.
Eggs, which were very scarce, sold :
throughout market for fortiy-five and
forty-eight cents a dozen. There was
a genera] complaint among dealers that
they were not selling nearly as many I
nuts or as much fruit as they formerly ;
sold at Thanksgiving.
