6 TALKS ON TURKEY. How the National Bird Suffered Up in Oregon State. A Bald-Faced Advertisement at the Expense of Some Poor Children— Some Big Ships Coming In. The festive turkey has been conspicu ously to the front the past week. This noble bird has been ottered in the sacri li'ial tires ofthe national holiday. From every fish-stand they hung in tempting J array—from the very big and very fat turkey, whose existence for the past few months has been made a burden to him by reason of a constant process of stuffing, to the very lean and very young turkey, who didn't get enough to eat. Everyone partook of turkey, and was consequently happy with a sense of duty ' done. A certain "Famous" clothing*house | gave a Thanksgiving spread to all the newsboys of the city. The dinner was laid in the big show-windows, where some two hundred or more boys stuttbd themselves unto repletion. This was no doubt a kind and charitable aqfc to the j homeless boys, but why treat them like a lot of animals,...

There was even a larger attendance at the tug-of-war contests last night than on the opening night. There was a great deal more noise and enthusiasm, too. The contests were far more exciting than thoße of the previous evening, and were more stubbornly fought. It was ap parent that the men had grained much in experience by the first contests. Interest last evening centered prin cipally upon the contest between the American team and Carbuilders' team. These are two ofthe heaviest teams en tered, and the strongest—with the excep tion, probably, ofthe Foundrymen. The knowing ones had picked out tho Car builders as the winners, and many wagers Were laid on tiie team.

6 AN OFFICIAL IN TROUBLE. And All About Recording a Doctor's Diploma. It Happens to Be in Chinese Hierogly phics and Distorted Diagrams of the Human Form. "'County Clerk Rhoads is in a stew, and all because of the law which requires j practicing physicians to record with the j clerks of their respective counties copies of their diplomas. Yesterday a Chinese doctor called at the i Clerk's office with a sheet about a foot and a half square, the contents of which, he said, he wanted recorded, it being his medical diploma, issued by a Chinese doctor factory. Mr. Rhoads unrolled the scroll and nearly fainted when his eyes rested on j its contents. The upper half contained a mass of Chinese hieroglyphics, while the lower half was covered with about fifty coarse outline sketches of the human figure, each being full of similar char acters. These were grouped in various portions of the body, as if to indicate the different organs. There is not a word of English on the alleged diploma, and ho...

The State Board of Trade has for some time been considering the subject of de vising a plan for securing a foreign mar ket for the fruits and other products of California which have not thus lar been in special demand beyond the ocean. The subject was brought up some weeks ago by William H. Mills at a meeting of the State Board, and has since been dis cussed at meetings of horticulturists. Different plans have been suggested and advocated for securing a foothold for our products in England, but the general proposition has met with the favor of all. At last the matter has taken shape. A company is now being formed for the purpose indicated, and has issued its prospectus under the auspices and with ihe Indorsement of the State Board of Trade.

6 PAT KELLY'S PET BUCK. It and Lawyer Downard Engage in a Tug-of-War. A Very Pretty Contest While it Lasted, But the Deer Did Not Have a Square Deal. • There was great sport in the vicinity of Sixth and I streets early yesterday after noon. Patrick Kelly, whose place of business is on I, near Sixth, has had a full-grown deer in his back-yard, which be secured when it was an innocent little fawn, sporting about the headwaters of the South Fork ofthe American River. Yesterday somebody left a basement door open, and Mr. Buck walked through the cellar, up the steps and out upon the street. Several persons ran to inform Kelly that his deer was at large, but Law yer Downard took a more practical, if less thoughtful, view ofthe situation. It was raining hard, and the street was very muddy, but the disciple of Black stone thought not of either —he wanted the credit of catching that buck, and boldly dashed toward it. About that time the buck seemed to have arrived at the conclusion that it w...

LAND HOLDING IN BUTTE COUNTY. It has been the earnest hope of the Record-Union that the statistics relating to large land holdings it Butte County would show a tendency to the segrega tion of lands and present a gratifying ex ception to the tendency in the direction of aggregation; which the statistics of other Sacramento Valley counties have ex hibited. The published facts accompany ing this, however, leave no room for doubt that Butte County is not an excep tion to the rule of valley counties in Cali fornia. We have contented ourselves with taking an observation of tbe first one hundred large holders, but have add...

SPEED THE DAY When Sacramento Shall Have a Pure Water Supply. Result of the Analysis of Oak Park ; Water-The Stato Analyst Says It is Remarkably Pure. The fact has now been fully demon strated that Sacramento has not only an abundant supoly of water at her very doors for domestic purposes, but that it i«. a "remarkably pure" article. This is the language of State Analyst W. H. Rising, in his report to the Chair man of the Citizens' Water Supply Com mittee, which caused the experimental well to be bored at uak Park. Some ten days ago the committee for warded to the State Analyst a sample of the water taken from this well, lor analy sis. There has been no doubt in the minds ol all who have seen the vast vol ume of water pumped from the well a§ to the sulliciency of the supply, and re ally none as to its quality; but, without a complete analytical test, this latter point could not be positively determined. All doubt thereon has, however, been Bet at rest by the following communica tion...

It is a radical innovation upon all conven tional rules concerning the form of busi ness buildings, in this, that though nearly 141 feet by nearly 161 feet, it is but one room (gaving only the basement story).

Splendid List of Attractions for Sacra. mento During the Coming Winter and Spring—Plenty of Variety and to Suit All Tastes—Footllght Flashes- A. P. Dunlop, writing from New York under date of November 29th, says: Monday evening two offerings of fresh matter were "The Hustler" at the Bijou, and "Jack Royal of tho! _i" at the Peo ples. "The Hustler" has been pulled over the hottest kinds of coals by the critics and if it was anything but a farce comedy—which no criticism can badly hurt —would have beeu incinerated. To the credit of the author, Lew Rosen, it may be said that he failed to recognize his own play, and is perfectly willing that those who altered it may also take the honor of authorship. "Jack Royal of the 92" is from the long-tried and graceful pen of A. 0. Wheeler, tNym Crinkle), who has fitted Harry La>y with a military melodrama well suited to his talents. The scene is laid in New York, jus...
