: HALLOWEEN FESTIVAL :
: A Witch Party, With Ghosts and X
t' Weird Observances.
(New York Tribune.)
Thero is no night in tho year so alto
gether delightful for an evening party as
tho cvo of All Saints', for, though the.
day Is supposed to bo ono of prayer in
memory of tho dead, tho evening beforo
it has been devoted to revelry sinco long
back In tho centuries.
Ono cannot be formal with ghosts, as
no books of etiquette have prescribed a
proper course of conduct to be followed
when ono sees them. So, naturally, a
Carty given on Halloween Is distinguished
y Its Informality and Its Jollity, oven
though tho guests engage In tho fateful
occupation of learning whether they arc
to have tho career of old maid, happy wife
or widow, or their masculine equiva
lents. A Halloween party should not bo largo,
Twenty are as many as will find fun to
gether In It, and the company should bo
friends rather than acquaintances mero
ly. Ono can have the old-timo party, do
votcd to burning chestnuts, bobbing for
apples, and tho butter-known ceremonies,
or ono can try somothlng now. It may
be, for Instances, a witches' party, with
guests clothed In tho traditional witches'
garb. For this consult Mother Goose and
copy tho costume of tho old woman who
wont to sweep tho cobwebs out of tho
sky. , Tho men can wear any weird cos
tumo which suggests wizardry, and tho
costumes are a great aid In turning tho
course of ovents along uncanny lines. Ono
caution should be given, though it Is Gup
posed that overv one understands that
all is Illusion Abnormally nervous per
sons should not have dealings even with
pretended spooks, and sometimes one's
nerves do get a little shaken by tho ob
servance of Halloween.
Tho Invitations may bo cut In the form
of the witch, or sho may bo sketched on
ono end of tho Invltatlon-card, or sev
eral witches may fly on broomsticks
across It These drawings can easily bo
made by tracing the outline over carbon
paper on the card, then marking over the
tracing lines with pen and Ink. It is In
teresting to havo all tho cards different
If tho Invitation is given by word of
mouth, thl3 form of ornamentation may
bo used for the supper-cards, with a cou
plet appropriate to tho occasion, cither
original or quoted The supper-cards may
bo hold by tiny witch dolls, and will make
The party to be a great success should
bo held where there may be an open lire,
nnd should last Into tho small hours, when
ghosts and astral bodies aro traveling
about, Xor on this night it is given to
ordinary eyes to behold tho astral body
that each has, but seldom makes known
to another If it wero not so, how would
tho future true lovo make himself vis
ible? Some littlo timo may bo spent merrily
in tho usual rites which need not be de
scribed here, but ono of the first things
to be done Is to make tho cake of fate
so that it may be baked for supper, and
there Is no reason why this should not bo
as delicious as If It told no secrets. Hach
or the trinkets which are its reason for
being should bo wrapped in oiled paper.
There will be a ring to show who will
flr.st bo married, ti thlmblo for the spins
ter, n wheel for the traveler who is nevor
to rest In a homo, and there may be
a tiny ship also, a pn for the author or
for her who will wed one, a sixpence or
a dlmo for the Individual who Is to know
riches, a tiny doll for the future opponent
of race suicide. Any trllle suggestive of
an occupation may be baked in the cake,
and Indicate Unit she who gets It will havo
for her future :artner one whose trade
Is carried on by such tool. Theso things
must bt vry small, so that they may
not be found too easily. Ono person may
put togjthiM- the ingredients, but each In
dividual must give a stir to tho dough,
and from tin- lime the compounding Is
brgun until the cake Is In the oven not a
wo I'd must bo spoken or the spell Is bro
ken. Tho dlftlculty of following this one
direction explains why tho charm so often
falls of Its effect, and Is an additional rea
son for having everything well In hand
before Hit- company lakes a part. The
bakelln will be greased, everything meas
ured, butter and sugar creamed, eggs
beaten, etc. Any recipe may serve for
tho cake, and it Is allowablo for tho maid
to watch its baking.
A pretty trick which Is not common 1h
that of finding one's true love by bits of
candles In boats made of nutshells. Take
halves of English walnuts and fasten In
them, by softening the bottom, little can
dles, the smallest to be found. Theso
fairy boats with their freight "arc placed
gently upon tubs of water, and each Is
named, one for each guest and one for
his or her choice, which, of course, need
not be told. A guest may even havo sev
eral boats If she desires, and Is of a na
ture to "be happy with either." The sur
face of tho wutor will look charming
when tho candles are lighted. Thero
should be no other light in the room. The
bits of ships must not bo stirred by a
breath, and there Is a meaning In every
thing connected with their voyage, and
sometimes one will pair immediately with
a neighbor, and sometimes one will reso
lutely hold aloof from companionship. It
Is qui to amusing to watch their vagaries.
If the candle does not light readily there
is supposed to bo trouble brewing.
Another test with candles Is intended to
reveal what tho doming year has In storo.
Use for these tho half-length size, and jit
rcngo them some distanco apart on the
lloor. Each candlo typifies a month. Tho
trick is to Jump over them In turn with
out extinguishing any. If one can do this
tho year has only good In store. Each
light that goes out means ono unlucky
After this the guesls will probably bo
ready to consult the oracle, who may bo
a man or woman, but whose personality
must bo unknown. Tho costumo should
bo the weirdest possible, and tho faco
should bo veiled Tho abodo of tho oraclo
should be a room not seen until tho tlmo
for consulting her has arrived. Thero
should bo no light other than from can
dles, and by putting green or blue shades
over them one may produco a light that
orly a spook would willingly patronize,
Cabnllstlc symbols may bo hung about tho
closet or tent that is given over to this
use. and tho more uncanny the effect tho
better. Only ono may enter at a time,
nnd tho dictum must bo given In a deep
hollow tono, as spooky as possible. It
and defense alike were a brilliant feat
o arms, in which the gallantry of the
Russian was surpassed only by the de
voted courage of tho Japanese infantry.
Tho Russians fell back to a range of
low hills bordering on the Shakhe liver,
whence, on the llth. the artillery fnillng
to dislodge them, the Japanese drove
them in the afternoon by a magnificent
spectacle of disciplined war involving
terrible carnage, pursuing them down
lo the very banks of the Shakhe river.
The same correspondent, under date
of October 17, says: Gen. Kuropatkln
appears lo be preparing to hold tho
plain in front of Iukden. Ho Is con
centrating troops and strengthening his
defense work3 In three lines, the outer
along the Shakho river, tho second
along tho Hun river, and tho Inner

thoso who openly scorn all superstitions
are In reality deeply influenced thereby.
After all who will havo heard tho de

Any menu mado up quite considerably of
nuts and apples will be appropriate. Thero
may be nut sandwiches, nut and applo

After supper all will proceed to tho room
with the open llro. Hero, without delib

themselves sitting medltatlvoly about tho
fire, and then oome ono will begin to tell
a story. That Is tho effect, the open fire
has on humankind, so tho hostess will
turn this disposition to her purpose. Thero
will bo no other light In the room, and
that In tho fireplace will flicker and bo

to tho ghost stories.
Pcrhnps tho hostess may havo gathered
beachwood for tho fire. If sho has sho will
have the most beautiful blues, gold and
grcons in the flames. If beachwood can

which Is nearly as brilliant and which Is
just tho light for tolling ghost stories in.

When the tension of tho party is at its
highest nervous pitch let hor appear,

Eater f on a
Ate 85 Pounds of Haw Beef on $100
Bet and Dies In Awful
DUBUQUE, la., Oct. 21. His stomach
distended lo three times its normal size
alter he had eaten eighty-five pounds of
raw beef, "Phil" Melloy, who posed as
tho world's champion eater, died In
terrible agony here today. He was found
dead on the floor of his bedroom by hla
wife, with his hand on his t'tomach,
und his face distorted oa If in terse suf
fering had preceded death. An autopsy
was performed by blx doctors, and they
found the walls of the stomach literally
permeated by the Juices of the meat, .
Proud of His Gluttony. '
A week ago Melloy Issued a challenge
to any man In the world to eat agalnat
him for a -ager of 5500. He was in
tensely proud of his gastronomic feats,
and ft wna the taunting of a dozen
youths that drove him to death. On
Sunday afternoon Melloy met Uie
youths In a resort in the heart of the
city. They turned to his wonderful
performances in eating, and Melloy
boasted he could eat eighty-five pounds
of beef in twenty hours. One of the
young men In the party then offered to
bet Melloy $100 that he could not eat the
amount. Melloy hesitated la accepting
the bet, and was laughed at for a
"quitter." He was called "fakir" and
"four-llusher," and was told that any
ni In tii nnrfv pnnld winnl him nt ant
ing when at his beat. '
Ate Eighty-Five Pounds of Meat.
Unable to bear the deriBlon Melloy
finally said he would make the bet The
money was staked and fresh beef was
obtained from a packing-house. Two
doctors pronounced It of excellent
quality, and Melloy was locked with It
In a room. A guard was placed over
the room, and at the end of nineteen
hours Melloy knocked to be released.
The door was opened, nnd only a few
omall bones wero found in the room.
Ordinarily Melloy was trim In figure,
but he came out of the room bloated.
So elated was he with his prodigious
capacity that he went to a restaurant
and ate three large cans of salmon nnd
four apple pies.
Choked to Death.
Melloy was hardly able lo walk home.
He gave his wife the $100 he had won
and then staggered to his room. Four
hours later Mrs. Melloy found his body
growing cold. Ho had apparently
slipped from bed to the floor. His head
was slightly lower than his body and
some of the beef which had got Into
hlg throat prevented him from malting
Had a Poor Appetite.
Two weeks ago Melloy nto ISO raw
eggs in twenty minutes and wound up
by devouring five large porterhouse
steaks in quick succession. At his regu
lar meals he ate sparingly, but when
ho set himself down for a contest he
seemingly could consumo an unlimited
quantity of food. Flvo weeks ago Mel
loy nvent Into a restaurant here and
ordered all the steaks, chops, chickens,
fish, oysters and vegetables in the place
to be prepared and set beforo him. He
cleared the restaurant of everything
eatable and then said he wished ho had
something more to cat. Melloy'a
ulomach stretched like a tiny balloon,
and he had a special Bttlt of clothes to
wear nt his eating contests.
Tho question Is naked, "Why Is mnn
bom with hands clinched, but has his
hands wldo open in death?" And tho nn
swor Is: On entering tho world man de
sires to grasp everything, but when leav
ing it ho takes nothing away.

Vhat overwork "really means. .
What a long story is condensed in that one word,
which Mrs. Frye uses in her letter as if "over
work" were a matter of course.
How many porsons ever stop to realize that "over
work" simply means that their vitality has not been
sufficient for the duties of tho day the work has
probably been no more than a normally healthy per
son could do with easo.
Instead of calling It "over-work" It -would be truer
to speak of it as "Under-vitallty."
Remember, your strength Is not in your muscles
the muscles simply work when the nerve force tells
them to. Even your brain does not work by Itself
tho substance In your brain cells depends on getting
energy with which to do its work; and this energy
is nerve force the same great power-of-llfe that
actuates every function of the body.
Every, form of weakness, or sickness, or dlseaso,
results from a lack of the strong nerve force which
should keep tho organs working properly.
"When one speaks of "a good constitution," one
simply means a sound, strong nerve system.
When the nerve system is not strong and well
nourished, it follows inevitably that one is easily,
"over-worked" easily run down Just as Mrs. Frye
"As a tonic and Invlgorator I am 6uro
nothing equate Palne's Cerely Compound.
I havo It alvays on hand.
"When weak and nervous, or restless from
overwork, a do6e of It soothes and strength
ens me so that I wake up bright and re
freshed, and fully capable of going through
a strenuous day's work." Mrs. Anna B.
Frye, 122 DeKalb Ave,, Brooklyn, N. Y., Au
gust 5, 1904.
The nerves need food to keep up their strength.
Their food is not tho same food that we usually
Prof. Phelps, of Dartmouth University, was the
first physician to enunciate the principle which to
day Is recognized as one of the foundations of the
sclenco of medicine, tho great enlightening truth,
that tho nerve system rules all the body's health.
Ho sought and found the food that builds up and
restores the nerves his celery formula, which ha3
become famous as Palne's Celery Compound the
celebrated nerve vitallzer and tonic.
Doctors know and value this prescription and make
constant use of it in their practice.
Its effect is almost instantaneous tho nourishment
and vigor given to the nerve system by Palne's Celery
Compound Is felt at once.
The patient feels thiB at once and gains confidence
The stronger nerve forces have begun at once to
make each organ of the body do the work that na
ture expects of it.
Two days' treatment with Palne's Celery Compound
will prove Its marvelous power.
Remember this, Palne's Celery Compound Is tho
prescription of one of the most famous physlclaus this
country has ever known, and all reputable druggists
sell and recommend it.

was certain tho Joke was not on him, and
ho -would bo fflad to take Mrs. Lillian
Blum and their child back to their home.
In his answer to her suit for a lepral
separation, with ?50 a weok alimony,
Blum testlllcd to tho joking vein that oc
casionally manifested itself In Mrs. Lil
lian, such as kicking a hat hold abovo
hor heud In tho middle of a ballroom
floor; dressing up a dummy woman and
putting It In tho bed of a bachelor friend,
and donning man's garments horsolf and
playing bridegroom at a mock wedding
all In joke.
Wife Had First Word.
Mrs. Lillian had tho llrat word and may
have tho last before the suit Is sottlod.
Sho said that soon after their marrlago
her husband showed toward her a "snub
bing demeanor" that was Intolorablo and
aroused all her natural spirit of resent
ment; that ho had mado this worso by
saving he ought to havo been paid to
-marry beneath his station," and was
sarcastic unci nagging at cafes, rarely
coming homo bnforo midnight.
Complained, of Cooking.
As bad as anything. If not woroo, to tho
Fonslbllltles of a good housewlfo was the
fact ho would frequently complain of hor
cooking and say the stuff she proparcd
wasn't fit 10 eat. No, that wasn't tho
worst that camo when ho refused to
tnko her to any placo of amusement, ac
cused her of being friendly with other
mc-n, nnd offered her J30tt If sho would
relcuse him from tho marrlago bond.
Blum put up a spirited defense. In which
ho raid his wife's Idea of a joke some
times went a littlo too far. Sho always
had plenty of vacation money, even It ho
had to stay nt home. In tho summer of
1D02 she went to Spring Valley, where sho
honinio a favorlto with the hotel guests.
That was all right, but tho husband ob
jected to her dressing up as a bridegroom
and ertprtalnlng tho guests by playing
the part of a dashing and handsome mnn
nt a mock wedding.
Objected to Tliis Joke.
Then, ho sald,whon sho was on a visit
to the t'atsklllo. he took u. day olt to run
up tln.Te. Evidently ho wasn't expected,
as tho wholo hotel wum laughing at a
joko his wlfo had played on a bachelor
guest the night before. Ho said he learned 1 '
she had stuffed a figure to resemble thut jw
of a woman and had taken It to the- )S
guest's room when the man was asleep. ft
Mrs, Blum said sho had done this in ml
Joke, and Mr. Blum accepted the apol-
Hlgli Kicking- the Limit. 1
But he thought it was carrvlng a Joke
too far that high kicking. Ho and his J
wlfo attended a bail In a large Catsklll M
hotel, and ho was pleased at seeing Mrs. wf
Lillian was ono of tho prottlest and best- g
dressed women there. Sho was dancing S
with some young man. tho husband tes- flu
titled, when her partner suddenly raised raj
his hat, and Mrs. Lillian ran to tho ecu- jBi1
tor of the room, raised her skirts and w
kicked above her head, sending the hat fB
flying. This eo pleased Mrs. Lillian and U
all the other summer guests except her j
husband that sho did the high-kick Inc act
several more times that night, much to W
Blum's deep displeasure. However, he be- -S
llcvcd it was only her Idea of a joke and A
would gladly tako her back. g
