Two nuts aie placod about three inches apart on the bars ot the grate or on the stove, one being for the fair questioner, the other for her sweetheart. If his jump or ciack, he is fickle, but if both nuts cuddlo up to each other and burn brightly, Bide by side, the man and maid will marry and be happy ever after. Sometimes thiee nuts are used, one leprescnting the girl, ihe others two rival suitors.

Wc must all sac rifice for othcrc to some eztent. but there is no more good reason wn a mother should sacrifice herself entire ly to her family, than a father. "Some fathers do," said tho mater. i "This patient of whom I spoke is a shining example of a considerable per centage of women who revel in mar tyrdom.

So they say. Another way to get a view of your husband or wife-to-bc is to go to bed on Hallowe'en with a glass of water, in which a small sliver of wood has been placed, standing on jour table by your bedsido. In the night you will dream of falling from a bridge into a river, and of being rescued by jour future husband, whom you uill see as distinctly as though Iewed with mak ing eyes. Or, wet a shirt sleeve, hang it up to the file to dry and He in bed watch- Ing it till midnight when the appari tion of your future life pailner v.' Ill come In and turn the sleeve. An up-to-date Hallowe'en test Is to hang up ribbons representing the vari ous colleges. The girls are blindfold ed and each picks out a ribbon, the colors of which will indicate the ?lma mater of the husband-to-be. This trick could be can led out with raids painted In -water colors with the vari ous college colors or names Children born on Hallowe'en are said to be able to see and converse with tairies. witches and other super natural beings. Sir Waller Scott makes use of this idea in "The Mon astery." If on this evening you shake hands with a very blond man you will have a pioposaf but not necessarily fioin the blond before the bells shall have rung in the new year. If your loer should, under thi po tency of the magic evening, propose marrlago on this night, let him bind ou at once by tying a blue ribbon up on your wedding ring finger tbat Loth ho and you may be true. It might be well whon dressing for the evening to see that you have somewhere about jour person the requisite bit of ribbon. Just at midnight and you must bj no means rotiro before that magic hour on tho 31st of October listen for the sound of bells from the neaicat church steeple (it there arc none in your neighborhood j'ou can't do this). Should you hear a full and distinct peal, begin on your trousseau: but if there be a dull and muffled sound, pos sess your soul in patience for another year By the .a, have jou a four-lacd clover?

The seat should be eight or nine inches high and from one to two feet broad, and may be put up by a carpenter at slight expense. The children may slide all along these and draw their toys up beside them, and there wjll be less dango- of bumped noses and bruised elbows from tipping over of the chairs. Lit tle pillows with durable covers may be strewn about, for small, sleepy heads, or to make the seat less hard. Such a seat is best made of hardwood, if the floor is hardwood. If not, It should be made very smooth and var- dtied or pressed one. Put it in jour shoe on the morning of the, 31st and near it until you retire at night. It will bring you good luck through the following year. - . ' . . 1 111 ...'... ; MOTHER'S SACRIFICES Moon Party For Halloween BY ANNETTE- ANGERT.
