Betheden School Improvement Asso- j
Betheden school house was the cen-;"
:er of social attraction on Friday be- ;
'ore Hallowe'en when the members ,
>: the improvement association en-'1
pertained at a Hoilowe'en party from
J till 5 o'clock. There were more j
)han 60 guests present.
The school house was decorated ;.
rery tastefully and appropriately, ev-1
srything having a weird and "spooky" !,
ippearance. From banks of autumn I,
eaves, -vines and' cornstalks stared ; ^
bumpkin jack-o'?lanterns and from |,
he ceiling similar faces greeted the j
quests. * \t
Every one brougiht with him the real j
Hallowe'en spirit; young - and ' old, j
!rom trustees to tiny tots, each. alike (
wearing a paper *bag over his "head. !
'One touch of nature makes the !
vhole world kin." j,
Misses Estelle Dominick and Josie ?
3rook Dominick, as ghost, met the j
quests; at the doors and introduced ,
,hem :o the witch, Mrs. ITL E. Chandler, j (
xlo took them- to the gypsy tent (
sphere Mrs. Herbert Carlisle told their 1
'ortunes. The witch, with' ;her tall hat )6blbing
ahout and riding her broom- ,
stick, then escorted each one to an- j
>ther ghost. Miss Maggie Lee Swind- '
ler, who permitted each to draw iiis i:
fortune, tied in a peanut, from a large
Aonles and bass oh" r>?,an nits were
suspended from the ceiling; trials at J
biting the ajpples and1 (breaking the ,
bags with a stick, while blindfolded, ,
caused general amusement. It really L
reminded us of our happy childhood ^1
days to see tfne children scrambling !,
for the peanuts where a bag was broken.
After other things 0? amusement, 1
Miss Swindler, still a ghost, drew all
the children around her seated on the
floor and without a movemeit of lips ,
or winking of eyes they listened to 1
the ghosts story.
"Tall Betsy," Mrs. Bacbman Cromer,
was the greatest df all fi n for the
children. Some things never grow
old; for one, "Tall Betsy" never will.
How true the old adage, "no fool, no
fun!" Without "Betsy" the programme
would not have been complete.
lLast of the games was "Tailing the
Cat." It was real funny to the little
folks to see where the tail was pinned,
though many put it on correctly
and won a prize.
iBelfore time for the guests to leave
the members served peanuts, apples
and gingersniaips, all of which- were
enjoyed by everyone.
The members wish to thank Mr. Higgr
gins for so kindly drawing a black cat
for their game "Tailing the Cat,?>
and express tiheir regret that he was
The association will meet again the
first Friday in December. It has met
with success thus for, having 12 old '
members who are good workers and
four new ones \"ho we are sure will J
proive faithful. All the members are
requested to attend the next meet.

Some Sweet Singers. , ~
The "veribest" male quartette visiting
Newberry in a long, long while
was the "Alco quartette" at the

it won't be some time before there will
be another like it. The singers are
young men and they are traveling
afoot, for the life of it. That is
why they were not dressed in broadcloth
on t?e stage. That fact may
have been a detraction from the entertainment
to the taste oi. some, just
as there are thos'e who would rather
have bread and water with' cut glass,
fine linen, silverware and flowers,
than turkey on oil cloth and plain ,
dishes. To those whose very being
thrills with the "concord o-f sweet
sounds" the Alco singers came as a
rare treat in their traveling suits.
Those who lovf melody and whose
ears are attuned to harmony enjoyed
it very much. So far as we are concerned
we would much rather hear a
sweet singer in clean rags even man a
poor one in handsome costume, particularly
when you can't distinguish the
words. One hears every word distinctly
from the "Alcoes," and we
believe the majority tihorougfaly enjoyed
the entertainment, judging by
New Books at the Library.
The following new books have been
received in the NeWberry library:
Bamlbi, The Promised Land, W&nd
hoifnrp "Dsjwn Thc> Salamander. The
Eyes of the World, Today's Daughter,
