B& 33lf pleasuro and happiness to
that housohold during the
'entire year. There aro many Interest
ling ways of entertaining a New Year's
party, but the favorite of all Is the
i masked dance or party, and the most
, Interesting way of having this sort of
entertainment Is to give a ghost party.
'The Invitations rend in this manner:
! Our good old Father Time
J Has promised to convene
I The shades of many notables v
, To meet yoi New Year's e'en.
i We'll look, for you, you know,
j To help to mako things go,
, And Incidentally to meet
Bomo ghosts you're sure to know.
There should be 20 or more guests,
and after tho Invitations have gone
out, the hostess has a little private
chat with her guests over the tele
phone. She requests them to come
dressed to represent somo famous per
son now dead, pantomime, words, ges
tures and costume being used to carry
out tho Impersonation.
Dressed In a misty black robo cov
ered with stars cut from gold paper,
tho hostess will receive her guests In
a room draped all in white. Sheets or
cheesecloth can be used for this. No
word Is spoken until a little red Imp
distributes cards and pencils to the
assembled guests. Then each In turn
speaks somo word or docs somo stunt
to suit his or her character. The
person guessing tho greatest number
correctly receives a pretty copy of the
book, "Ghosts I Have Met."
Games, contests and dancing will
followj' and tho supper or refresh
ment tablo will bo filled with things
tempting enough to attract even the
Tmt most ghostly appetite. Tho tablo dec-
orations should correspond with tho
festivities of tho season. A New
Year's plo mado of crepe paper over a
deep pan Is filled wltli dainty llttlo
favors for tho guests or cards upon
whlih somo funny rhymo Is written
for each Individual guest. Part of the
entertainment for tho evening may
be tho telling of fortunes, Informing
each guest of their fate for tho com
ing year.
Whatever you do, don't let anyone
shatter 'your faith In Now Year's reso
lutions. They are tho best things over
' If you know how to handle them, and
the most discouraging things If you
don't, .

Brick Devereaux Slid Into Pile of
Bats, Scattering Them In All
Brick Devereaux was a great base
stealer In tho Coast league not so
many years ago, although he no longei
was a young man, speaking of basebal
This story on Devereaux was told
by Del Howard, long tlmo a manager
and part owner of clubs In that or
ganization. Devereaux was playing
with Oakland, which had Frisco as Its
rival on this particular day.
Brick swiped six bases during the
bottle, and promptly claimed u world
record. "Not bad for an old man
eht" he chuckled.
Danny Long, sitting on the Frisco
bench, shouted over "Record, where
,do you get that stufT? When I was
with tho Baltimore Orioles I stole
seven bases myself In one game. Bead
It up."
i Tho Oakland veteran didn't repl
I to this biting sally, but his face gre
as red as a leet.
Next day, when he enmo up for tin
first time, Devereaux hit an easj
grounder to short and was out at llrst
by 20 feet. Instead of stopping he
turned llrst at full speed, dashed for
the Frisco bench and slid feet fore
most Into tho visitors' pile of bats,
Mattering them In all directions and
throwing dust nnd cinders In Long's

his uniform.

But Hellmann doesn't wait 'cm out
He bangs away at them. He has found
that It pays. Most bad balls aro crip

a mistake by being too critical In

John Stanchfleld, Student at Amherst,
Demonstrated Professor of Physics
Waa Wrong.
John B. Stanchfleld, the noted law
yer, who died recently In New York
city, always enjoys telling how ho
developed tho art of pitching n curved
ball, observes the Detroit News.
Stanchfleld was graduated from Am
herst In 1870, and served as a pitcher
on tho college nine. Tho tale he best
llkod to relate had to do with a class
room lecture of u professor of physics,
who used complicated mathematical
formula to show that a sphere hurlod
Into space would not curve In a hori
zontal piano without violating the laws
of physics, which was only another
term for tho laws of nature, and such
violations did not occur. The student
spoke up. He admitted that the dem
onstration was excellent, but he
claimed that he could throw a curvo.
That afternoon the professor stood be
hind tho catcher on the ball ground
nnd watched a baseball plump again
and again Into tho hands of the catch
er nfter having rounded tho end of a
wall. Tho demonstration was com
plete nnd that Amherst col I ego Inci
dent had much to do with starting tho
craze for curved pitching that soon
rovered the whole country.

Their Pay Is Higher and Hours
Arc Shorter Than Boforo
the War.
Workmen In most parts of Germany
aro nld now to bo receiving better
wngei, everj thing considered, than
prior to tho war, nnd working shorter
hours. This Is particularly true of tho
occupied area, according to American
nriny olllcors, who In their lino of duty
have eouto In contact with tho Ger
man working classes.
That the workman It able tn live
better under present conditions is due.
In a largo men sure, to the fact tlmt
strict regulation of food prices have
been enforced by German authorities
and hns prevented shopkeepers from
boosting the cost of the necessities of
life, despite depreciation In tho value
of the mark.
These regulations npply chiefly to
house rent, meat, potatoes and other
stnplos produced within the country.
Many luxuries Uao Increased In
price, especially within tho last few
weeks when the mnrk took a tumble;
but the currency fluctuation hns not
materially nffeeted food In the markets
patronised by the working clauses.
One, hundred marks a day Is consid
ered a fair wngo for the average work
ing mnn, skilled workmen and minors
receiving considerably more, somo ns
high ns 200 marks n day, whllo tho
common Inborer makes but CO or CO
marks for eight hours.
Professors In the universities nnd
school teachers maintain that they
have not fared so well as tho work
ing mnn, receiving on nn averngo of
less than 80 marks a day.
Slnco the war the Germans do not
eat as much meat as formerly, pota
toes forming the principal article of
food. Dark bread In three-pound
loaves 1b sold for 7 marks, this being n
mixture resembling rye bread as made
In America. It Is considered very
wholesomo nnd It Is eaten by many
Amcrlcnns, among them SlaJ. Gen.
Henry T. Allen, commander of tho
American forces In Germany, who hns
It on his tnblc at homo nt every meal.

Island chieftain, hns waited ten yeara
In America for a ship to her Island

down mnrrlnge offers from adventur

to return to her lbland home to live
nmong tho uncivilized, and help them
