Tins ABGTJS, SATURDAY, OCTOBEIt 24, J903.
T ill Popular Fall Festival,
lowe'en. Will be
YOUNG FOLKS AUTICIPATIVE
Somo I,ic-ne Will be Given Them
Out lawlessness Will be
Hallowe'en is dose at hand, and the
mtuiII population of the city, as of
other cities, is awaiting the autumnal
festival with pleasant antidpntion.
For Hallowe'en this year comes on
Saturday. With the average young:
American it takes rank near 'the
Fourth of .1 uly, or Thanksgiving, or
C hristmas even, and many are the de
lights it atTords.
The Hallowe'en party will be . in
i!ue this year in Koek Island, as it
is in other year. . The yining folks
are wont to rather at the houses of
friends to spend, the evening at old
fashioned fairies. Corn is popped',
molasses candy is "pulled." chestnuts
roas.ted'. and floating apples cVived for.
While engrossed in these delightful
occupations a noise is heard at a win
dow, and- the merry makers gaze in
feigned alarm at a weird apparation
which has made an appearance. A
great yellow face glares through the
window with fiery eyes. For .Tack
O'1-an terns is abroad on Hallowe'en
and the farmers are watching their
pumpkin patches pretty closely these
days. Then there is the "tick-tack,"
which is ever popular on Hallowe'en.
The small boy knows just where to
tie a string across the sidewalk to
trip up the unwary passerby, and
this- is one of his favorite- pranks, but
he has a hundred others ire stock
which are brought into requisition as
circumstances) warrant. Usually on
Hallowe'en groups of boys and girls
are met at every street corner, giving
one the impression that the entire
population of the city has turned out.
And this is generally the case. Sad is
the lot of the Koek Island boy who i.
forced to remain beneath the pater
nal roof on this night of all nights.
Sport Mnst be Harmlens.
So long as the boys and girls con
tine their Hallowe'en operations to
harmless tricks an-'l jokes, they will
not be molested, as a certain amount
of indulgence on the part of the peo
ple goes with Hallowe'en. But in
years past there has been a certain
element abroad in the city who have
abused the privileges given them and
have made Hallowe'en an occasion of
wanton destruction of property, and
malicious mischief. Special police
will be appointed this year, whose
duty it w ill be -to patrol the streets
and keep on the watch for these of
fenders. They will be arrested and
Hut on Hallowe'en' and on Corne'en,
the night, preceding it. the children
will be at.'Jibertj'' to enjoy themselves
to their hearts' content, provided they
keep within reasonable bounds; and
the first festival of the autumn sea
son now but a week distant, is eager
ly awaited by hundreds of young peo
ple throughout the city.
RUMMAGE SALE GOES ON
To be Continued Next Week Until All Good
are Din posed OS.
The gross proceeds of the three
days' sale of Union Mission rummage
last week, were $730; the expenses
were $104.04. so the net proceeds turn
ed over to the Union Mission amounts
to $04.V9. The sales Wednesday,
Thursday and ' Friday of this week,
which are considerable, and the sales
which will be made today will doubt
less bring the net proceeds up to $750.
The collectors were out Friday
gathering in rummsige and were also
out this morning. There is a large
stock on hand at Apple's old stand on
Third avenue and Kleventh street, in
cluding a good piano and two organs,
which will be on sale this afternoon
and evening, after which the sale will
be discontinued for the present.
The management finds that in the
bustle of collection one whole section
of the city, what is known as the
Kleventh t street district, has been en
tirely omitted. Collection of this
rummage will be made the first of
next week, and when completed and
the goods arranged the store will be
again opened and the new goods put
on sale, of which due notice will be
given through the daily papers.
The stocks cf shoes and millinery,
which were completely exhausted at
the main sale, have been replenished
and will be put on sale today.

WEATHER IS CHILL
Affecting Attendance at Racing
Meet on Ninth Street
TRACK GOOD BUT TIME SLOW
Local Horses Took the Honors
' Being Continued This
Saves Two From Death.
"Our little daughter had un almost
fatal attack of whooping cough and
bronchitis," writes Mrs. XV. K. Havi
land, of Armonk, X. Y., "but, when all
other remedies failed, we saved her
life with Dr. King's New Discovery.
Our niece, who had consumption in an
advanced stage, also used this won
derful medicine and today she is per
fectly well." Desperate throat and
lung diseases yield to Dr. King's New
Discovery as to no other medicine on
earth. Infallible for coughs and colds.
50 cent and $1 bottles guaranteed by
Hartz & Ullemeyer. Trial bottles free.
Chilly weather was the jonah at the
Ninth street track yesterday after
noon. During the summer the Twin
City Driving association, under whose
auspices the races' have been held,
managed to bring on a rain storm
every day when events were schedul
ed. Hnt now it's- the cold weather.
No sooner had' the association an
nounced a fall meet than the tem
perature began to drop. Yesterday
afternoon it was too cold for comfort
at the track,' and the result was the
smallest attendance of the year.
The track was in excellent condi
tion, but. poor time was made. Hob
Nibbs- won the 2: IS pace in straight
heats, but he was closely pursued by
Tommy Raymond. Telia was an easy
winner in the 2:20 trot. Miss Adrian
was victor in the roadster race. The

SHUT OUT BY MONMOUTH
Ansrastana Defeated at Football 16 and O
Prlncle the Star.
Had Pringle. full back for Mon
mouth, been left at home. Augustana
would have stood' an even chance for
victory in the football game played
yesterday afternoon at Ericsson park.
Pringle was the hero of the day, mak
ing two place kicks for goals and
also kicking goal after a touchdown
for iiis team.
fgustana was outweighed consid
erably, but otherwise the teams were
prettily evenly matched. The first
place kick for goal was made by Prin
gle from the 40-yard line in the first
half. When three feet from the Au
gustana goal Monmouth was held for
downs, and when Erick Johnson punt
ed for 30 yards the locals breathed
easier, but Pringle shattered1 their
hopes with his right foot, Pringle's
second spectacular performance oc
curred in the second half, when Au
gustana was holding admirably, but
pounding the lines accomplished noth
ing for either side, and it seemed
Pringle was the only man who did
anything. Near the close of the half
Monmouth sent Owens ofer the line.
Then Tringle kicked goal. Score, 1G
and 0. The teams lined up as follows:
