Friday evening about 7 :30 o'clock
the ghosts began to walk and our
streets were thronged with appara

was the scene weird and spectral for
there the Order of Spooks gathered to
observe Hallowe'en. For an hour or
so some twenty of these ghosts, gob
lins and witches glided about there
as magically as the stones the ancient
god and goddess threw behind them
changed into men and women, so in
like manner, these spooks were trans
formed and by the ancestry spooks or
stones curiosity is an unfailing Inher
itance. To satisfy this element the
young people had their fortunes told
many games and charms. During
the evening Miss Allen, who issued
the invitations, served candy and
fruits, and the occasion W83 n thor

four years of their life to the service
of their country, seme of whom were
killed on the battlefield and others who
have crossed over the river In the
peaceful quiet of the years since- the

been asked: "when will the monu

veterans have said: "we should be
glad to see that monument but if the
time is much longer we will all have
passed to the beyond." The monu
