However, a they seemed very tired they did not enter the house and were still In the same place when we left. On entering the house everything looked vary much like the house of "spooks." Uy the dim light from "Jack o'lanterns," we could Bee that the rooms were profusely and artis- tlcly decorated with old witches, owls, bats and on every bide we met a big black cat. As most of the guests were attired In "spook costume" it took some time to find out "who was who." After the costumes were laid aside our hostess brought fourth a num ber of contests, popular at this sea son, which caried much amusement and laughter. All were "good sports" and tried to do as they were told. We thn devVited it short lime to business. The following officers were elect ed: Mrs. Geo. W. Harris. President; Mr. Hugh Roren Vlce-Fresident and Mrs. Ceo. W. Rrown Sec.-Treas. The class adopted a plan to do chrltable work each month. When we finished our business we had to match black cats, owls bats etc.. to find our partners for supper. I The dining room doors were ) thrown open and as we entered we '.found the ever black cat and his as sociates. As we circled the big inhle we found it loaded with all the viands popular in "spook land" ud would suit the taste of Ihe most fas - Mdlous spook.

This little jingle was slipped under the door, author has not yet been arrested : Last night my heart was light and gay. And Ufc was full and sweet. The dearest girl in all the world Was waiting down the street. She stood beneath the chandelier. Her beauty was complete. I gazed In rapture on the scne. Then hastened, her to greet. When, lo! the cruel lights went out; But no, we would not part; I groped to where my darling stood. And clasped her to my heart. I closed by eyes In ecstasy, And vowed I'd love no other: I opened them, the lights were on. And ;God! It was her mother! Truth. MAIL FACILITIES GREATLY IMPROVED The Signal, Post iMaster Ramus and several other citizens of 8nyder and practically all the people of Dunn nnd Ira and all over the thick ly settled country adjacent to those; towns have been contending for the past ten years that the postal facil ities for the West and South part of Scurry county ought to go out from Snyder to gel quick and direct ser vice. These people huve been turn ed down two or three times, but they have never surrendered their idea nor let up 19 efforts to bring about the desired advantages of di rect tservice. At last it has come our way and the rural carrier on Route No. 4 now cnrlres that route over an ex tendAd territory goinjr south of Ira to people who have been remote from a post office. And he also carrlen mall for Ira. Dunn, Knapp and Dur ham, going direct to Ira where the star service takes up and delivers to the other post offices mentioned. Thfs gives direct service to a thick ly populate country anu win ue 01 great advantage In parcel post bus iness. Merchants can uow fill ord ers on short notice, and people want ing iuick service are In position to write in for what they want and get returns in a few hours. Snyder Klectrfc Plant Sold The Signal is authorized to say that G. I. Wilcox has sold the Sny der electric light and power property and Ice factory to D. F. Yoder and W. H.

In fact it will probably be made almost a n-w plant capable of handling any 'probable service in the electric line. I Mr. Yoder has made a success of the electric business id Ctviwell and at other towns and is known as a pro jllcletit electric light man. It is un jderstood that both these gentlemen ! will soon move their families to j Snyder to make this town their ; home town. Other Real I'.stjite Sulew J. D. Brooks and wife to T. C. Stin soii.
