Misses Sophie and Sadie IV
Hostesses for Hallowe'e
Friday evening it was really j
some on the streets of Edgefield,
people who were afraid of g]
and goblins staid indoors, becau:
every corner there was s omet
creepy to be seen or heard,
. sometimes both seen and heard,
in the end, the largest congreg?
of mysterious spirits were seen w
ing their way singly, in pairs o
groups to "Sunderland," the h
of Miss Sadie Mims, where they
decided to have a real party,
where everything was prepared
their coming and was made coi
nial and appropriate.
3?he whole house was arranged
suite, so that the mysterious gu
would not know they were in a hi
built by human hands. The fl<
were all covered with, pine neei
which were as aromatic as a i
forest, the walls were covered v
the most vivid colors of auto
leaves and great trees hid the <
ners so that it seemed to be a wo
land dell in a great forest.
As the phantoms and weird ci
tures began to arrive they were i
at the front walk by a large, wi
ghost, who murmured in gutte
tones for them to "follow the rop
This led them across the lawn z
winding in and out through *
hedges and grass, finally brouj
them to the b?ck gate where tl
were met by another ghost, this ti
with clanking chains and pointi
up the back steps. As they ascend
the steps, another spirit greet
them by dropping a heavy tin pan
the hard concrete floor of the por<
This frightened the phantoms <
pecially who cannot bear noise, a
if it had not been for their curiosi
which is an indivisible part of
ghost, they would have taken tl
as an opportunity to silently ste
away. And, as if that was n
enough, as the guests ascended tl
stairs a terrific black spider, mu
worse than Miss Mtiffett's, ke
dangling down from the wall ai
bobbing in the faces ol' them all u
till they were fairly frightened oi
of their wits.
At the top of the steps a wit(
appeared and presented them wi!
souvenirs, heads only, cf cats, devil
and bats. As they descended tl
stairs wearing these charms, the
found themselves in a sylvan retrea
where bats and owls had lit upc
the trees and shrubbery, and whei
corn stalks and witches, skulls an
Jack 'o lanterns with bright lighl
in their eyes were mlakihg merr
under the orange shaded lights, an
the brass candelabras with yello1
And there was music, too, whic
charmed them, and a contest was th
answering: of questions which the
h?M, with the names of articles pir
ned here and there on curtains
things pertained to Hallowe'en.
As the contest was finished, a tal
witch beckoned them all out oi
the lawn ,where pale Luna's gleam
* added a mystic light, and around ;
pot under which real fire blazed, am
which was the real witch's cauldroi
which Shapkespeare wrote about
they were handed their fortunes
And the best part about it all wai
that their fortunes were all good
and fine enough to make even ghost!
and witches laugh, and turn then
silence into merriment as the for
tunes were read aloud.
By this time every body was? ir
good spirits, and returning in the
house, each one blindfolded stuck
a tiny pumpkin on the eye of a large
canvas pumpkin, Miss Virginia Ad
dison succeeding in this and received
a tiny silver pencil.
Miss Gladys Padgett won the
ladies' prize, a box of yellow station
ery, in the first contest and Mr.
Rainsford Cantelou the gentleman's
prize, a black and orange tie.
The dining room was decorated
in black and yellow with festoons
from the chandelier to the corners
of the table, where a silver basket
filled with fruits centered a lace cov
er over yellow. The mint holders
were tiny orange and black baskets.
An elaborate salad course and
fruit nectar was served in picnic
plates and wax drinking cups, the
napkins being ornamented with Hal
lowe'en figures. Misses Effie Allen
Lott and Margaret Allen assisted in
As each of the sixty-five guests
departed Misses Sophie ,and Sadie
Mims, the fair hostesses, gave each
one a goodnight Hallowe'en "kiss,"
wrapped in yellow paper.
This beautiful party was the most
elaborate and original of the parties
given at this season, and has been
the subject of much merry conver
sation since the auspicious event
"AN OLD WITCH."

B. Y. P. U. Party at William
Hallowe'en gives a wonderful op
portunity for the young people to
arrange something really interesting
On Friday at William Strom's
home the B. Y. P. U. gave a very de
lightful party and the best part pf it
is that they did it all themselves.
Each one was dressed in costume,
and ghosts, witches and creatures
from unheard of countries appeared
on the scene. Autumn leaves and
flowers, black cats, bats, Jack o' lan
terns made an appropriate back
ground for the merriment which pre
valed. 1'he colors were yellow and
black and the souvenirs were little
round boxes containing candy in
black and yellow wrappings.
Fruit punch and all sorts of fruit
was in evidence everywhere in this
Hallowe'en land, and on the outside
on the lawn Japanese lanterns in
weird figures threw a' fantastic light
on the goblins, ghosts and witches
who flitted in and out.
The young people enjoyed this oc
casion immensely in the spacious and
well equipped home of Mr. and Mrs.
W. A. Strom.
