able employer, though the latter may
not know why she made a distasteful
impression upon him.
Likewise an ALKALI man may fair
of his goal by permitting his somber
attire to create an impression of
sloth, melancholy, pessism or ill

Hallowe'en fun begins with the in
vitations. They should be difficult to
read as well as freakish in appear
ance. If a plain correspondence card is
used, it can be cut into pieces, form
ing a puzzle which must be put to
gether before the card can be read.
The shops have many odd invita
tions in jingle, but the hostess who
likes to be original can get just as
quajnt effects by decorating vege
table shaped cards with gummed sil
houettes of witches and other Hal
lowe'en symbols. The mystery is in
creased if the cards are written back
wards, or if invisible ink is used.
Black cards written in yellow, gold
or white ink can be made really ar

the kind of party which is being
planned, as skeleton decorations for
a ghost dance', jack o'lanterns for a
pumpkin-head party, candles for a
candle light cafeteria.
A sample bid reads:
To Meet the Queen of Ghostland.
Spells Woven at 9 P. M.
At the Haunted House (Address)
Ghost Walk at Midnight
All Hallow's Eve, Tuesday, Oct 31
A new idea is to write half of a
"fortune" at the top of a card and
announce, "You can learn the Rest
of Your Fortune at the Witches'
Cavern, (address). Pull the Latch
String of the Cellar Door at 9 P. M.

automobile, it is alleged, she slapped
his face. She was fined $25.

Laziness is sometimes mistaken
for patience.
