THE NIGHT WHEN GOOD AND EVIL GENU MEET MANKIND. FUN OF IHE MOST LAWLESS KIND. Impatient Maidess May Selve the Future AfUr Due CeremoBy, TRADITION AND PROPHECY PREVAIL. Brownie?, Demens, WitekM and Fairi3 Held High Carnival To-NlghtA Pleasing Saperstitien All Like. All Hallows' Evo, or lite evening pre ceding All Saints' Day, Is the night set apart for rollicking fun of lliemol l(fv lew hind. From time Immemorlnl It has been famous a lite nltjht when 8upsrnattunl Influences prevail; when witches, demons, fairies nnd other good or evil Htmll bold n grand anniversary and meet humankind on most Intimate terms. Kven spirits still In the body arc said to have poTtcr on that night lo detach themselves and wander about In the realms of space, appearing In nil sorts of guise In strange, unctnny places. I lAVhat lends Importance to Hallowe'en Is tbe tradition that TiiB uiottT is FOi.t, or rrtoniBCY, nnd impatient maidens need not wait the slow developments of time, but after due ceremony can know their fata and even have a glimpse of their future husband. While, portions, thcro is not so much Importnnco attached to the celebration of the nleht In this city, that Is usually obsctvid in the old country nnd In the rural tllsttlcts of America, still It niToids an ample opportunity for tho romantically Inclined to Indulge their fnltb In attempting to draw aside ttie veil that shields the future. The small boy also will hove nn opportunity to night In play his pranks, with more llci nse than is permitted on other nights, acd o keep alive the memory of an old nnd fnt dying niKTtltlon, nut, at the same times one that Is popular. hoiikht uunsH lias Immortalized Hallowe'en. In lilt well known poem he has Riven au ac count of some of the spells and charms which make the night so popular among tie peasants of Scotland. The flr.t ceremony was choosing cabbaitM blind fold. All go out hand In hand with eyes closed ur blindfolded and pull the mat cabbage they tlnd. Its slxe and form Is prophetic of the site and form of the future husband or ulfe. If any earth stick to the root, that signifies fortune, and the taste of the heart of the stem is Indicative of the natural temper and disposition. Finally, the Mems ore placed over the door, and the Christian nanus of the people whom chance brings Into the house are. ac cordlns to the priority of placing the stems, the names in u,uett!on Another practice among ScotlUb maidens hi to steal nut alone to the kiln, throw a bull of blue yarn into the ot, wind oft tbe yarn Into a new ball, and toward tbe end of tbe winding something held tbe thread. The iptea tion was then put. "Who bold; ' and the answer was from K1LMOCMS, THK HROWXIK, wbo haunted the mill and lived In tbe killcgeo or space before tbe fireplace In tbekllu. He would give tbe christian and surname of tbe future spouse. An other experiment was for tbe maiden to take a candle and go alone to a looking glass. While combing her hair she must eat au apple, and tbe faee of her future husband was to be seen In tbe glass, (teeplug over ber shoulder. On All Hallowu'en tbe Scottish maiden woubl wash ber sack awl bang It over a ehalr to dry, taking care to tell no one what she was doing. If she lay awake long enough she saw ber future spouse enter tbe room and turn tbe sleeve as if to dy It on tbe olber skle. Hallowe'en i sometimes called Xut Crack Nigbt, indicating that nuts are an important part of tbe entertainsnent. In Ireland, as in Scotland, when young wimea would know if their lovere wtrw faithful tuey put three nuts upon tbe bars of the grate. AMltC THi.

A simitar idea is put into verse by Char Us (J ray don. a poet of the early part of this century. Tbese glowing nuts am sinhleass true itt what in hausan life we viw.

Whoever stole Are unseen from hU neighbor's health would fare no better, since Are taken In this way was considered un holy. Children born on Hallowe'en wen thought to possess remarkable facilities of perceiving and holding converse with supernatural Itelngs. Sir Waller Scott has made use of this popular su perMltlon In the "JIoflaMery." While the name Hallowe'en Is of Christian origin. Its connection with the following dy of AH S-tlnts Is not at orce obvious. The northern nations, like the Hebrews, begnn their dty In the evening, but there Is nothing In the observance of All Saints to originate Mich iNcit"iit, BvrrtvvAtiANT rnAcncm. One must look much further back thin Christian times to discover Its meaning, trnclne It to certain Druldlc rites among the Celts and Gauls, or further still, perhaps, to tbe shamanism of northern Asia, with Its belief In evil spirits and tho necessity of averting their malign It'fluoncc by magic spells. The feast dav In Ililtaln anil Ireland was Novem ber 1. The Irish called It Sanfuln, meaning the end of summer. On this day the Druids mcriflced horses to Ibe sun as a thank offering for the harvest. Sacrifices were offered on this night to therplrltsof thedetd. who were believed to have liberty at this tenson to visit their old earthly haunts find their friends. All the fires were extinguished In the evening in order to be supplied the next day by a portion of the holy fire, which was consecrate 1 by the Druids. Whoevor had Infringed upon the pence, or become obnoxious by any breach of the law, or guilty of any failure In duty could have no sbaro In the fire until lie had first mide all tho Tetaraton which the Druids re quired of him. Whoever did not agree to this bid the sentence of excommuni cation I assed upon him. Thcie was another festival among the nrtthirn nations on Slay 1, which cde liiatid the opening of summer as Sin luln celebrated Its close. It was called Ihlinltie, from the god I5.-1 and ttlne, ilcnlftln tire. Here, too, Ares and witches pi ay o.l an Impirtant pirt. It was known In Germany as the iihht for witches' carousals on the Iltockberg, and Goethe has made It famoitt by the well-known scene lit "Faust," Walpur gts' Night or Tim WITCIIK' SUIIUTII. AU tbe superstitions relate to n period long antecedent to Christianity and the Dy or All Saints. In Bit) the Illshop of Nome ordained that the 1'antheon should be converted Into a Christian Church and dedicated to all lie martyrs. This was held Miy 1, an I continued to lie held on that day until the ninth century, when a change was made to November 1 as a day for the commcmoratl n of all the saints, and was called All Hallows the number of saints having Increased so rapidly thtt It was Impoiklble to consecrate a sep arate day to each. Tbe change wjs made to' November 1 out of regard to tbe Northern nations, who clung tenv cluly to tbelr old tiles and ceremonies long after tbelr CO&VKKklO.N TO CHRISTIVNITV. These people could not easily give uo Inherited customs tbe old Instinct was too strong for them. Nor did tbe Church demand It. It was always tbe disposition of tbe early medieval church not to antagonize unnecessa rily tbe sacred traditions of tbe pagtns It converted, but, so far as was possible, to transfer those rites ami traditions Into tbe ceremonies and lingutge of tbe Cbilstlan church. Tbe history of medieval Christianity abounds In num belles Instances of this kind, showing a liberality which U not always cred ited to it.

The statement I have made In the book nnd since Its publication was lwsed upon wrlltrn reports of those olllcert.
