The Halloween fairies were giving a
part jr. Tliero was the pumpkin fairy, In
shimmering shining yellow; tho apple
fairy In russet nnd green, tho nut fairies
In golden browns, and many others Into
the bargain.
They wer giving their party In ,the
hollow of a great big oak tree. The
friendly fireflies had offered to furnish
the Illumination, and so many of thorn
came that there wasn't the least bit of
danger that their lights would all go out
at the same time, and If they had there
were several stow-worms that were more
than willing to shine steadily right
through the evening
Outside, on a low branch of the tree, a
Undly old owl mounted guard. If any
of the mischievous goblins or hobgoblins
ventured near he meant to warn the
fairies by calling out "To-whool to
whool" In plenty of time for them to
mako their oscapo
Locusts and katydids had been Invited
to supply tho music Thoy sang over

one present And for refreshments they
had little acorn cups Ailed with delicious
dew caught that very morning and tiny
ooJtes of honey made especially for the
occasion by tho bora who had their hives
nearby and who sent them with theli
compliments.
The fairies made a fairy ring and
danced around It while the locusts and
katydids sang their best songs, and the
glow-worms and the fireflies made the
Inside of the big tree brilliant with their
yellow lights.
The youngest fairies served the refresh

glow-worm or locust or katydid, and tho
older fairies sat together on little chains
made of lovely pink and yellow toad
stools. The pumpkin fairy told of her busy,

The Origin of Halloween
The only mysterious festival left to
prosaic Americans Is Halloween. Its
origin is plainly Pagan, although the ro
mantic element has come to us from
England, Ireland and Scotland
Around the 1st of November the Druids
were supposed to hold their worship of
the sun god, thanking him for the har
vest. Huge sacrificial fires were TTghted
In his honor, and kept lighted for days
This Influence can still be seen in the
"bonfire night" In Ireland.
The Roman conquerors penetrated as
far as Britain, and from them comes the
custom of using nuts and apples on Hal
loween. On this night Soman, the lord
of death, was believed to call together
all the souls of the wicked. These were
condemned to Inhabit the bodies of
beasts for a year, and Halloween marks
their release.
This fact or belief perhaps, marks
the predominance of the mysterious ele
ment In Halloween frolics. It Is the
night when witches, elves and evl!
spirits walk abroad They sour the
cream, tie cats' talis together and per
form the thousand and one pranks
usually attributed to small boys
Robert Burns In his poem, "Halloween,"
gives us a good description of the ways
employed to penetrate the veil of the
future. Three nuts are placed on the
hearth. Each Is named after a. lover.
If one cracks, he will be unfaithful.
If one burns, ha will be faithful, etc.
llany maidens ate an npple slowly before
a. looking-glass. The face of her future
husband was supposed to peep over her
boulder.
Children bom on Halloween are sup
posed to have the power to perceive and
communicate -with spirits. Sir Walter
Beott makes use of this in his romance,
"The Monastery."

The Needle-threading Test
It is very hard to thread a needle when
seated on a round bottle laid lengthwise
on the floor. It will roll about In the
most surprising fashion The one who
succeeds in threading the needle first will
be the first to get married.

all their fruit trees, and the llttlo nut

they had made sure of a supply for all

They were drinking each other's healths
In tho little ncorn cups of bramble dew
when suddenly To-whoo' called tho big

and stood perfectly still, oh, so terribly
frightened'
To-whool To-whoo' sang the owl, and
each tlmo much louder than before.

eame Instant
Fairies and fireflies and glow-worms, lo
custs and katydids flew all mixed up to
gether, up and up, right up through tfce
tree trunk until they reached the top.
Then out they flew and away and away,
under tho cover of the leaves until they
were all safely home and ervery single
one of them tucked In bed
And the mischievous llttl sprites and
goblins and hobgoblins that had come
stealing up tho tree Just to frighten the
fairies found nothing nt alt.
They peered Into the big hollow of the
oak tree, but there were no friendly fire
flies and glow-worms to light It up for
them, so they turned away quite de
jected and maybo a little bit ashamed.
Tho wise old owl kept one eye cocked
open until the last one had vanished.
Then he ruffled up his feathers, tucked
his head under his wing and went to
sleep for the night.
Hallowe'en in Frolics
Pretty games belong to Halloween more
particularly than nny other time of the
year. Certainly, no other feast offers
such a variety of them Every country
lends it epecullar customs, for Halloween
is countless centuries old.
"Ships of Fate" Is perhaps the prettiest
and most romantic game of all Little
ships are made of half an English walnut
shell, -with little toothpick masts secured
to the bottom of the shell with candle
grease. The name of each guest Is
printed or written on each boat. A little
lighted candle Is placed In the stern
Place these In a tub of water and fan
gently. Much amusement follows the
gradual pairing off of the boats Tho
candle, of course, typifies good health
Whoever has the candle which burns tho
longest may expect a long and happy
life. The boats may bo Improved upon
In countless -ways and look very attractive
with the lights shining In the water.
A new version of the old custom of
bobbing for apples Is, perhaps, not so
exciting, but decidedly more reassuring
for the unfortunate victims who have to
go home on a cold night with wet cloth
ing. The apples are placed in a row,
using green, yellow and red ones al
ternately. The guests are supplies with
darts, or tiny bows and arrows. Shoot
ing a red apple signifies success In love,
a yellow one, money, and the green one
health.
An old English custom Is that of hang
ing a stick parallel to the celling by a
strong cord. On one end of this Is stuck
a large lighted candle, on the other an
apple. The stick Is then spun around
rapidly, and the guests are supposed to
secure a bite of the apple The pleasure
of this game Is very doubtful.
Slarshmellow toasting, roasting chest
nuts, apples, pop-corn, new corn and
Buch things before the open Are are less
strenuous and still popular amusements
for Halloween.
The Boasting of Chestnuts
The true lovers' test Is found In the
roasting of chestnuts. A young man and
a girl should each place a chestnut on
the bars of the grate and carefully watch
their behavior. If they stay quietly side
by Bide, then the young couple who
placed them there will lead an easy,
peaceful life together But If, as Is fre
quently the case, the nuts hiss and steam,
then such behavior Indicates quarreling
between tho owners. Frequently one
chestnut will act In a wild manner, Jump
Irg away from the other and hlBslng
loudly, and this Indicates that the owner
has a bad temperl
The Halssin 1la.ee
Into a piece of string about a yard long
a raisin Is strung. Two people then take
each an end in their mouths and hastily
chew as much as possible. The one who
reaches the raisin first will be wedded
first.
Recipe for Halloween
Peanut Candy
For a thick peanut candy boll together
a cupful of sugar, a cupful of molast.es
and two tablespoonfuls of butter ery
slowly for about half an hour Then
try In cold water and when It Is brittle
add a cupful of shelled peanuts Pour
Into well greased pans to the depth of
half an Inch When It begins to harden
cut Into squares with a buttersd knife.
A crisp peanut candy that is easily
made Is made by melting and browning
granulated sugar, being careful that it
does not burn, and then pouring It, when
it Is all melted and brown, over shelled
peanuts. When It is cold break It In
pieces.
Barley Omelettes
Break two eggs Into a basin, remove
the specks and beat well (If at hand,
throw in a spoonful of minced parsley),
a dust of pepper and salt It for savory
one. If a swet one, add sugar Stir into
the beaten eggs enough boiled barley to
make It the thickness of a rich batter,
then form It Into thin cakes with floured
Angers Lay them Into a pan of heated
fat; turn or hold before a bright are
Minted onions may be added if ap
proved. The omelette should be lifted
w th a spoon or knife to prevent it stick

a weil-used pan Take to table as sgon
as choked Jam or stewed fruit may be
used with this omelette.
IDEAS FOR
Halloween Is a time of rejoicing and
festivity, and many delightful parties aie
given to celebrate it fittingly The prob
lem of entertaining the guests harasses
many a hostess, and for her assistance
tho following time-honored games are re
corded: First In tho list comes snapdragon. This
game Is a great favorite with the younger
folks, and even the elders will enjoy It.
About half a pint of brandy should be
put Into a dish and a match applied to
It. The moment It catches fire tho light
In the room should be put out, so that
the sole Uluminntlon comes from the blaz
ing brandy.
Handfuls of candled fruits, raisins,
sugared almonds are then flung In. and
the guests must try to snatch them out
of tho flames. This causes great excite
ment and much laughter, and Is sure to
make the party a success The girl or
man who manages to obtain the highest
amount of fruit, etc , from the flames
will meet her, or his, future mato within
a year!
Another delightful
game is played with
a mirror. The moon
should be shining
brightly, and the
guest must walk sev
everal paces back
ward In the moon
light, holding a looking-glass
In one hand
and gazing all the
time Into the looking-glass.
If the fol
lowing verse is re
peated, the face of
the guest's future
husband or wife, as
the case may be, will
appear In the glass:
"Round and round, O itars so falrl
Ye travel an1 eeareh cut eo where;
I Tray ou. sweet stars, row show to me
Thie night who my future husband (or
wlfoj will te!"
The Shadow Game
This is a splendid
game for Halloween
A sheet or tablecloth
KhnuM hfk Htratchecl
across the centre ofl'l
the room and a lamp
placed behind It on
u table. The lights
in the room are then
put out. and one
player fits at the side between the lamp
and the sheet The other players
must then pass In turn behind the one
sitting on the stool, their shadows being
thrown upon the sheet They make all
sorts of contortions and grimaces, wear
false noses and beards, etc, and the
man on the stool must try to guess their
identity This Is a rather difficult proposl.
tlon as the shadows seem strangely dis
torted and twisted
An Old English Halloween Custom
The girl or man who is anxious to Know
who her or his future companion for life
will be will steal out on the night of
Halloween quite alone, and will pluck a
hair out of the head and cast It away,
watching carefully In which direction the
breeze may blow it The future partner
will live in the direction In which the
hair blows To make the charm work,
the following verse should be recited
aloud:
"I pluck this leek of hair off my head
Tu tell wboBie com the one I shall wed.
Fly. allken tulr, Oy all the world around
Until ou rwua the spot wlwre my truu lovt
U found."
Another game that will cause great In
terest among the guests is played in this
fashion: Take three dishes, rill one with
clear water, the tecond with wattr Into
which some black ink has been poured,
and leave the third dish empty One of,
the guests is then blindfolded and led
to the table where the three dlsheu are
laid The guest then dips his (or her) left
forefinger Into one of the dishes. If it
is the empty dish he Is fated to be a
bachelor all his life or, if the player
oe a lady, sho wid be an old maid If
tuo flnser Is dipped Into the Inky water

A HALLOWE'EN PARTY 3S&
the player wll marry a widow of a
widower, but if the finger is dipped into
tho clear water, then the future partner
for llfo will be young, charming and
handsome
A ory amusing game Is played with
mashed potatoes. Into tho midst of the
mashed potatoes a dime, a ring and a
thimble should ba placed. The potatoes
are then eaten by the guests, nnd great
Is the excitement n to who will got the
articles burled In the mashed potatoes.
Tho one who gets tho ring will soon bo
married. The ono who gets tho thimble
will live alono all his or her llfo. The
discovery of the dime betokens tho re
ception of a legacy or the gaining of
riches
A eplcndld way of entertaining the
guests Is the hiding of nuts or apples in
different places In the room. Several
people should then be blindfolded, and
they must hunt around for the hidden
articles Hostesses who valuo their fur
nlturo and ornaments, etc , wil start this
bolbtorous game at their own risk.
An amusing game Is tho trial by water.
The gueet must fill his mouth with water
and walk nround tho house without swnl
lowlng or losing a drop of It. The first
person met of the opposite sex will bo
his fate. The Idea Is to send two young
people out by different doors. If the
young people selected are at all friendly,
the fun will wax fast and furious, and as
they are sure to meet, this simple game
may bring matters to a crisis.
Apple-Paring Test
A third and most popular Halloween
game Is played with applesklns. The
npple should be pared, care being taken to
do so In one long, unbroken piece. The
paring should then be swung around the
head, flung over the left shoulder and
allowed to drop on the floor The letter
thus farmed will show the Initial of Uie
thrower's future mate for life.
The Fun of Forfeits
No Halloween party Is complete without
the forfeit toll. When a player Is fined
for the breach of some rule or for some
mistake In a game, or for being defeated
In some test, he must at once surrender
a piece of his private property, such as
a stud, or. In the case of a girl, a bracelet
ur biooch or something of the sort
A ready-witted person is then chosen to
play the part of the Justice. There Is
also a collector, who holds out the arti
cle forfeited, crying, "Who Is the owner
of this pretty thing?" The owner then
comes forward, kneels down at the feet
of Justice and Is told what he must do
to redeem the goods. The penalties are
varied and amusing:
"Leave the room with two legs and
come back with six " The way to do this
13 to go out Of the room and return carry
ing a chair
"Place one hand where the other cannot
pet at it." The way to do this is to grasp
the elbow.
The quick-witted Justice will Invent
many amusing penalties, and the game of
forfeits will proceed in a very lively
manner.
Fortune Telling on Halloween
One of the party
should dress up as a
witch or gipsy and
tell the fortunes of
the rest of the com
pany Another method Is
to write the for
tunes on small pieces
of white paper, us
ing milk Instead of

place the slips In

All Halloween
This is the nlcht o Hallowe'en,
When a" the wlchtln mlcht o seen;
Boms o them black, eome o them green,
Some o' them llko a turkey Dean.
Feast days and fast days, holidays and
festivals come and go, but Halloween
Is unique. It Is vested with the charm
of all that there Is of the mystical, the
strango and the weird and the super
natural. Evil spirits hold high carnival, witches
ride the air, goblins and hobgoblins,
fairies and elves appear boldly, and the
souls of the dead come forth from their
graves and roam the earth.
Even Us origin Is mysterious, pagan
and Christian with a .dash of the
mythological thrown In, perhaps. Long
ago a feast was held in honor of Pomona,
goddess of tho harvest. In England the
Druids held a harvest celebration nt this
time of year and built great bonfires
In high places in honor of the sun
that ripened their grain. In the Cath
olic calendar the Eve of All Saints
coincided with the pagan festival and
became Involved In the fantastic rites
of the earlier celebration.
It Is a night when It Is not safr to
be out in the dark and alone, a night
when any man or maiden has the right
and the might to invoke the spirit of
tho future spouse by strange spells and
Incantations. Faith In maslo Is all that
Is needed.
And It Is a night, flrs.t and last and
all tho time, when grown-up pooplo can
cast aside the affairs of state, the pomp
of circumstance, and be what thoy would
most like to be la all the world merry
hearted children.
And If we no longer really and truly
believe In the supernatural, there Is a
remembrance of the belief to serve the
purpose and a wish that la almost a
faith In Its power
In a word, Halloween Is romance, the
Never-Never Land that we are all seek
ing, Bometlmes unknowingly and some
times with the dusty highway of tho
commonplace stretching ahead of us In
terminably, and blinding our eyes.
