THE BISBEE DAILY REVIEW PAGE FIVE Pi ' - 11111 s5jt:: x" v pith sr j Would You Know Whom You Are Destined To Wed Build a Ghost Fire Hallowe'en Of course, r.o Halloween gathering is true to form without witches, specks, candles, diving tor apples and fortune telling wizards. But here are some suggestions as to how to marshal the ghosts, spooks and witches to get the most fun. First of all. Halloween requires special deco:ations. The whole house may bo decorated at extremely low cost and yet elaborately. Get out into the country and bring in quan tities of autumn leaves and golden rod. With plenty of orange and black tissue paper and a few pump kin lanterns, the whole place can be made very festive indeed. Spooks and Goops. Invitations should be sent out about a week before the party. Ask a number of girls to be "spooks," some to be "goops," and other ghosts. Ghosts are all white the usual gar ment made out of a s"heet and pillow ccsc. The "goop" costume is accom plished with dark skirts fastened at the waist, and caught over the head. At the waist line a stick is fastened to form arms on which to hang a sweater which reaches to the floor. This givoa the effect of a queer little body and an enormous head. During "the evening the ghosts, spooks and goops should be very busy; also the goops may dance and do clever stunts. At' the Trtvnt loo as the guests arrive, one of the ghosts should be stationed to reev've people in the dark. She must shake hands with everybody -not a soul should bo allowed to escape her clammy, cold hand. This is really an old cotton glove, stuffed with boiled rice and kept on ice for several hours. Witch's Dungeon. Alter the ghost, siUl in the dark,; the euest is confronted with the suspecting guest. Then the goops appear and lead 'the now loudly pro testing nuest in the dark through the witch's dungeon. Here they must climb over; obstacles, crawl through narrow openings and walk ten feet on a piece of rubber hose! When all the guests have met the ghosts, spooks and goops, the witch appears. She is directs, of festivi ties. The whole evening should be crammed full of stunts and games and tricks. Ducking for apples, for tune telling, peeling apples without breaking the peel, so your wish will come true, doughnut biting, are all fun. Here are three unusually' good games to play at your Halloween party. The "Musical Nut Hunt" will start the ball rolling and will insure ease and freedom from diffidence on the part of every guests. Try it first, because it gets your guests moving about the rooms. Three Letter Words. The first player spells out a word of three letters; any word, like "pie" for example. The next player spells a word of three letters beginning with the last letter of the word just given. In the example it would be "e," and the chance to give "eat," the third following with "t," "tea." No word can be given twice, and any one failing to "give a word must drop out of the game. Testing Fate. Seven candles, each marked signi fying some special good fortune money, travel, fame, promotion, wrist watch, diamond ring, marriage are placed around the room. Players in turn, blindfolded with a black hand- 1 V K's 'Zy i: V hm& : v r .v-iv v f.: V i. ?

Someone seated at a piano begins to play "a chestnut." This is the sig nal to start gathering nuts which are hidden all over the house.

The lun contains some .four or five pounds of salt which Has 'been fairly well' sat urated with wood alcohol. The party fathers around the pan, chanting the incantation quoted above. Each has been given a chestnut, and each chest hut Jias been marked in some distin guishing way. A. lighted matcn Is thrown on the salt, which breaks into a blaze that gives off an uncanny green light. The chestnuts are then thrown in and the girl whose chestnut pops first, will be the first bride. Of course, she must immediately eat the chestnut. BUT that is not all. She is supposed to see the face of her future husband arising from the' flames! The Ghost Fire This ghost fire is a direct survival of the earliest Druid rituals. In Scotland, Ireland and Wales Druidism left Sits impress upon the later Christian faith, and to this day. traces of its fire al tars are still found. - Now, Ahe Druids believed In trans migration of couls, and on the eve of their' festival to the hun they lighted their fire altars to propotiate the spir its of darkness. The custom was kept up in parts of Great Britain until a comparatively recent period, None of the . levity caused by the modern "witch fire" however was attached to this observance. Instead of chestnuts being roasted white stones, each pre viously, marked with the name ofya member of the family, were thrown inti the Hallowe'en fire. Prayers were then said and "the family went to bed hoping to find all the stories again in the morning. If any stone were miss ing, it betokened that the owner of it would die within the year. .While some superstitions are pretty, , this wa one of many which were cruel. Happily only sportiveness re mains today of this quaint old-time ceremony, anil whatever incantations are chanted" have to do with healthy nonsense 'By Legion Tonight SCOTTISH RITE BODIES TO MEET-IN OLD PUEBLO MIAMI.

Nr. si AT ALL HALLOWS IE, ED OVER ENTIRE M Halloween, or All Hallows Eve, which will be observed in various ways in all parts of the world to night, has a deep religious signifi cance as the vigil of Hallowmas, or All Saints' Day. Though its observ ance today is entirely a Christian one, the origin of Halloween ante dates Christianity, and it Is to this pagan origin that the games and mer rymaking associated with St today are traced. The ante-Christian ob servance of Halloween originated vith the Druids, and was character ized by the lighting of bonfires, and the Roman festival of I'omona, held on the first day of November, and it is from tuu source that many mod ern Halloween games are deried. The Roman festival was concerned with nuts p.ud apples, as the fruits of winter. Nut roasting, "apple ducking" and other, modern Hal loween ganiws were the universal fjports of young people throughout mediaeval Knglund on. Halloween. W.

Druids held, their autumnal festivafT C on October 31, and lighted firlps in honor of their Sun-God - in Thanks giving for their harvest. The Druids also believed that Saman, the lord of. death, on the night of October 31 called together the souls ' of wicked f'ersons . from the bodies of animals Into which these had been condemned 16 pass. In pans of Ireland today Halloween is still called the 'vigil of Saman." Modern Scotch superstition also holds Halloween to be a night on which the witches, elves, ghosts, fair ies and imps hold holiday. The Scotch observances of the- occasion are depicted in Robert Burns' poem, "Halloween,", the most widely known contribution of the holiday to English literature. Up to a few years ago huge fires were lighted in the hills Of Scotland and Wales on Halloween.' The Druids, borrowed certain ot their Halloween observances fronii A., the final plan3 fo.- the cele bration ; were completed yesterday.
