A unique part of the social was a stunt ball, which was a ball of yarn through whieh was tied at regular intervals slips of paper upon which was written pome laughable stunt to perform. Previous to this each person had written his name on a piece of paper and these were placed in a hat. As the bail of yarn was unwound and a slip of paper was reached and the stunt to be performed read aloud the nams were drawn from the hat specifying those who were to take part in it. The women wore masks and sheets and were auctioned off instead of the boxes of lunch as is generally the custom. The room was beautifully decorated with black and orange crepe paper streamers, and witches and black cats chased each other around the walls. Another inter esting feature was a dark corner of the hall in which a witch told fortunes by reading palms. trict deputy grand matron and the dis trict deputy grand patron will be pres ent.

The hotels and rooming" houses are using soft coal for heating, and what anthracite coal they ran get is being used for cooking pur poses. In September only l."0 tons of hard coal came into Brattleboro so that Octo ber coal receipts look considerably more cheerful. Just what November has iu store for coal consumers is difficult to stare, for although there is better coal distribution, car equipment is in poor shaie and (he railroads are laboring un der heavy freight traffic conditions. Mr. Daniels advises people to continue the use of wood and soft coal. Practi cally all the wood the people want can be secured and the prices for this com modity are fair. Wood has been selling from $10 to $15 a cord, depending on the grade. Very few complaints have been received by the fuel committee and in those instances where complaints have been made Harold Smith, the surveyor of wood, has been called, in. and matters have been satisfactorily adjusted. Mr. Daniels says that people must take every advantage of the warm days. He, states that it is a good policy to let the furnace fire go out when we have a few warm days rather than keep the furnace going, for the amount of coal that is saved in such an instance is very appreciable. For instance, he says if the furnace is allowed to go out when we have three or four successive warm days, and a person saves 300 pounds of coal, this amounts to a saving of 75 tons in a town Twith 500 families, that burn coal. The time will come, he added, when jieople will need this coal when a real cold spell comes, and for that reason people should be content with the use of wood and soft coal for fuel. There seems to be a tremendous short age of stove coal as far as Brattleboro is concerned. So far this fall only 120 tons of this variety have been received and this arrived the past month. The balance of October's coal receipts were made up o 110 tons of egg and 240 tons of chestnut coal. The coming of a cold day should not influence people to start a coal fire in the furnace, Mr. Daniels added, for it will only be of short duration and we are likely to have many warm days in November before the real, steady' cold weather sets in.
