31st of October was dubbed "Nut

poem of Hallowe'en tells how
The auld gu id-wife well-hoordlt nlfs
Are round and lound , divided.
And mony lads' and lasses fatts

The charm referred to is one of the
oldest of the spells, "tried and true,"
for testing the constancy of one's
sweetheart. Two nuts aie placod
about three inches apart on the bars
ot the grate or on the stove, one being
for the fair questioner, the other for
her sweetheart. If his jump or ciack,
he is fickle, but if both nuts cuddlo
up to each other and burn brightly,
Bide by side, the man and maid will
marry and be happy ever after.
Sometimes thiee nuts are used, one
leprescnting the girl, ihe others two
rival suitors. The nut which burns
longer and more quietly betokcn3 the
more constaut lover. ,-

ning and fosteiiug. Wc must all sac
rifice for othcrc to some eztent. but
there is no more good reason wn a
mother should sacrifice herself entire

"Some fathers do," said tho mater. i
"This patient of whom I spoke is a
shining example of a considerable per
centage of women who revel in mar
tyrdom. She has five children and 'a
perfectly good husband. She lias been
married eighteen yeais and she told
me with many blgbs that In all Ihoso
eighteen years she had not had a va

If you take a caudle, go alone In a
dark room at midnight and cat an ap
ple before a look:ng-glass, the face of
your future husband will appear over
your shoulder and you can see his re
flection in the glass. So they say.
Another way to get a view of your
husband or wife-to-bc is to go to bed
on Hallowe'en with a glass of water,
in which a small sliver of wood has
been placed, standing on jour table by
your bedsido. In the night you will
dream of falling from a bridge into
a river, and of being rescued by jour

An up-to-date Hallowe'en test Is to
hang up ribbons representing the vari
ous colleges. The girls are blindfold
ed and each picks out a ribbon, the
colors of which will indicate the ?lma
mater of the husband-to-be. This
trick could be can led out with raids

Children born on Hallowe'en are
said to be able to see and converse
with tairies. witches and other super
natural beings. Sir Waller Scott
makes use of this idea in "The Mon
astery." If on this evening you shake hands
with a very blond man you will have
a pioposaf but not necessarily fioin
the blond before the bells shall have
rung in the new year.
If your loer should, under thi po
tency of the magic evening, propose
marrlago on this night, let him bind
ou at once by tying a blue ribbon up
on your wedding ring finger tbat Loth

be well whon dressing for the evening
to see that you have somewhere about

Just at midnight and you must bj

the sound of bells from the neaicat

eight or nine inches high and from
one to two feet broad, and may be put
up by a carpenter at slight expense.
The children may slide all along these
and draw their toys up beside them,
and there wjll be less dango- of
bumped noses and bruised elbows
from tipping over of the chairs. Lit
tle pillows with durable covers may
be strewn about, for small, sleepy
heads, or to make the seat less hard.
Such a seat is best made of hardwood,
if the floor is hardwood. If not, It
should be made very smooth and var-

Moon Party For Halloween
BY ANNETTE- ANGERT.
HHOSE who arc willing ty go
to some trouble in preparation
for the function will find In a
moon party something out of
the ordinal j'.
For invitations use colored curds
with silver or white moons (crescent
or full) ou them. Writo on the caids
the following or somo other verse:
Dear fiicnd, this greeting brings to
An invitation hearty
j To join with us on Hallowe'en
j A merry moonlight party.
Moons of every description are to be
used in decorating full, crescent, de
crescent, half and gibbous. Thcso may
be mado of silver or white paper. They
may hang from ribbons or cords and
may be festooned all about
The receiving party may be com
posed of mythological characters asso
ciated with the moon.
, The fust of these may be tho "moon
makei" (Scgonde Nab), who caused
the moon to issuo from a deep well so
brilliant that the real moon was con
cealed by it. His dark, bluo robe
should bo covered with bright red
moonB and ho should cany a wand.
Another may reRrcsont "Phoebo"
(the moon as the sister of the sunj
arrayed in silver and white.
A third may bo "ABtarte" (tho
crescent moon), the moon with the
crescent horns; and a fourth, "Ashto
reth" (the Phoenician goddess moon),
sometimes called the "queon-of heav
ou" (Jeremiah VII. :1S3.
"S'eleno." (the moon goddess), may
bo represented with wings on her
shoulders and a scepter in her hands.
"Gynthia" should be included as tho
moon In the open heaven who "hunts
