The lovely home of Mrs. Cato Davis
was thrown open to ,a Hallowe'en
spook party Wednesday evening.
The decorations of the house and
porches were attractive. Pumpkin
lanterns were used in lighting the en
trance and reception rooms and minia
ture black cats and witches were used
effectively. "
The ladies of the Leonidas Polk

casion. Evening dress in the way of
sheets was the rule. A spook in a

guests for the sum of 25 cents.

ment to the ladies of ihe city who for
merly lived in Kenton and their hus
bands. Two very unique features of
the evening were two type written sheets
of paper, on one a long list of let
ters arranged like separate words but in
a way that none of them spelled any
thing. The guests were to arrange the
letters to spell , some article in house
keeping. The other was "The Shirt
Waist Romance." A story in which
were blank places to he filled by using
some name or part of a shirt waist.
Now, if you think that's no job you
men try it. Both were very amusing j
and interesting. About 10:30 all were

f Cole's Original Hot
i Blast Heater
The cleanest, the easiest to care for. Users
of coal must remember that the ordinary
neater Is a big care to operate. That Its
smoke and ashes entail dusting, curtain wash
ing and carpet sweeping. Think then of the
easy operation and the cleanliness of Cole's
Hot Blast. -This neater has a guaranteed
smoke-proof feed door through which a cur
rent of air draws the smoke directly across
the top of the stove to the stove pipe, away
from the opening. Contrast this simple,
cleanly feed with the side door in an ordinary
beater. Side doors used on other Btoves per
mit the escape of dirty smoke, unpleasant
gases and accumulated soot drops from It.
If you over-fill a side door stove, coal falls
to the floor. The air-tight feature embodied
In Cole's Hot Blast Heater is an everlasting
advantage in its favor. Allow us to show you
this perfect beater before you buy. (R-lTi
