Betheden school house was the cen-;" :er of social attraction on Friday be- ; 'ore Hallowe'en when the members , >: the improvement association en-'1 pertained at a Hoilowe'en party from J till 5 o'clock. There were more j )han 60 guests present. The school house was decorated ;. rery tastefully and appropriately, ev-1 srything having a weird and "spooky" !, ippearance. From banks of autumn I, eaves, -vines and' cornstalks stared ; ^ bumpkin jack-o'?lanterns and from |, he ceiling similar faces greeted the j quests. * \t i' Every one brougiht with him the real j Hallowe'en spirit; young - and ' old, j !rom trustees to tiny tots, each. alike ( wearing a paper *bag over his "head. ! 'One touch of nature makes the ! vhole world kin." j, Misses Estelle Dominick and Josie ? 3rook Dominick, as ghost, met the j quests; at the doors and introduced , ,hem :o the witch, Mrs. ITL E. Chandler, j ( xlo took them- to the gypsy tent ( sphere Mrs. Herbert Carlisle told their 1 'ortunes. The witch, with' ;her tall hat )6blbing ahout and riding her broom- , stick, then escorted each one to an- j >ther ghost. Miss Maggie Lee Swind- ' ler, who permitted each to draw iiis i: fortune, tied in a peanut, from a large pumpkin. Aonles and bass oh" r>?,an nits were suspended from the ceiling; trials at J biting the ajpples and1 (breaking the , bags with a stick, while blindfolded, , caused general amusement. It really L reminded us of our happy childhood ^1 days to see tfne children scrambling !, for the peanuts where a bag was broken. After other things 0? amusement, 1 Miss Swindler, still a ghost, drew all the children around her seated on the floor and without a movemeit of lips , or winking of eyes they listened to 1 the ghosts story. "Tall Betsy," Mrs. Bacbman Cromer, was the greatest df all fi n for the children. Some things never grow old; for one, "Tall Betsy" never will. How true the old adage, "no fool, no fun!" Without "Betsy" the programme would not have been complete. lLast of the games was "Tailing the Cat." It was real funny to the little folks to see where the tail was pinned, though many put it on correctly and won a prize. iBelfore time for the guests to leave the members served peanuts, apples and gingersniaips, all of which- were enjoyed by everyone. The members wish to thank Mr. Higgr gins for so kindly drawing a black cat for their game "Tailing the Cat,?> and express tiheir regret that he was not present. The association will meet again the first Friday in December. It has met with success thus for, having 12 old ' members who are good workers and four new ones \"ho we are sure will J proive faithful. All the members are requested to attend the next meet. \ : OfJ, THE NEWS OF PROSPERITY 3Iany People Coming and* Go/ng. Meet/ng of Will/am Lester Chapter lT. D. C. Prosperity, Oc-t. 2.?Rev. C. H.

The singers are young men and they are traveling afoot, for the life of it. That is why they were not dressed in broadcloth on t?e stage. That fact may have been a detraction from the entertainment to the taste oi. some, just as there are thos'e who would rather have bread and water with' cut glass, fine linen, silverware and flowers, than turkey on oil cloth and plain , dishes. To those whose very being thrills with the "concord o-f sweet sounds" the Alco singers came as a rare treat in their traveling suits. Those who lovf melody and whose ears are attuned to harmony enjoyed it very much. So far as we are concerned we would much rather hear a sweet singer in clean rags even man a poor one in handsome costume, particularly when you can't distinguish the words. One hears every word distinctly from the "Alcoes," and we believe the majority tihorougfaly enjoyed the entertainment, judging by tfce encores. New Books at the Library.
