nut shells, guessing pumpkins seeds,

through a dimly lighted way that led

young men aa they came. Each one
was made , to climb the attic stairs,
where he encountered many obstacles,
the last stunt being to crawl through a I
hoop concealed by a thick curtain.
Partners were then chosen by means
of apples, the cores of which were re
moved and in their stead were in
serted the ladies' names. At the For
sell home the guests were reseived by
the Misses Hacel Angerson. EdnaBer
quist and Miss Octavio Beckstrom.
This was Sing Sing and while the
young men unwound spider webs they
were made to sing. At the end of the
web was a stick of candy, to which
was attached the name of the partner
for the next trip. They were penal
lied if they stopped singing. At the
next stop, the home of Miss Saville,
the men were asked to draw the like
ness of the young lady who was the
last partner and Siefred Blomgren
took the prize for the best production.
Here fortunes were told and partners
were chosen by means of hearts and
arrows. On a suspended sheet were
pinned yellow hearts which the young
men pierced by means of arrows. The
young ladies had prepared baskets of
lunch and after leaving this station
stopped off- at Barstock for
lunch. At the home of Miss
Rilla Fraser the only " lights
were pumpkin lanterns. Earlier in the
day the ladles had drawn lots and
chosen the face of the young man that
she must carve in the pumpkin. The
main characteristics at least were ex
pressed and the men guessed the
faces. Music and games were enjoy
eo and Hash light pictures of the
crowd were taken. Late in the even

ed as a close to a moBt delightful time.
