"There is perhaps no night in the
year which the popular imagination
has stamped with a mere peculiar
character than the evening of the
thirty-first of October," declares R.

people's houses and windows on Hal
lowe'en. Chief of Folice Jeff Hutson
yesterday issued a statement of
"Dont's" to The Tr bune, warning the
celebrators against property destruc
tion and the performance of tricks that
may endanger lives.
An effort will be made by the police'
this year to curb all unruly, rough cele
brations on that night and at the same
time, the stunts that will come within
th bounds of reason and not under the
"taboo," will be permitted to be car
ried on.
Hallowe'en this year will be cele
brated to a great extent upon the
evening of Saturday. October ".(), al
though the real date of the festive day
is the evening of October 31.
Many Halloween parties will be held
in the Capo and at various country
homes in this vicinity this year. The
custom of observing Hallowe'en is bo
coming more strongly fixed in the com
munity and some of the church organi
zations in the Cape have inadf elabo
rate plans for their parties.
The chief's "Don'ts" are as follows:
"Don't break window glasses."
"Don't soap windows and don't soap
street car tracks. Soap upon street car
tracks is a serious menace to traffic
and passengers."
"Don't tear down any gates or
fences and smuggle them away."
"Don't wantonly break down young
trees in the city."
"Don't perform any other malicious
destruction of property, such as dam
aging sheds, garages, vehicles of any
kind." .

"It is clearly a relic of pagan times,
for there is nothing in the church ob-
I servance of the ensuing day of All
Saints to have originated such extra
ordinary notions as are connected with
this celebrated festival or such re
markable practices as those by which
it is distinguished.
"The loading idea respecting Hal
lowe'en is that it is the time of all
others, when supernatural influences
prevail. It is the night set apart for a
universal walking abroad of spirits,
both of the visible and invisible
Many quaint customs have grown up
on Scotland, England, Wales and Ire
land in connection with Hallowe'en and
they now are obsei-ved, many of them,
all over the United Kingdom, and
many have been imported to the United
States by English people.
The Hallowe'en customs have been
made the subject of many songs and
poems by well known literatuers. The
night probably is best known and cele
brated the mos tin Scotland, Northern
England and Wales.
"There is a remarkable uniformity
in the fireside customs of this night
all over the United Kingdom," Cham
bers continues. "Nuts and apples arc
everywhere in requisition, and con
sumed in immense quantities. Indeed,
th ename of Nutcrack Night, by which
Hallowe'en is known in the north of
England, ind cates the predominance
of the farmer of these articles in mak
ing up the entertainments of the even

or in a private yard.
"To quote here from Burns' poem of
These are the most important j Thc auid guidwifc's well-hoordit
things that the police will watch this
week and I have instructed my men
to make every effort to i pprehend all
persons connected with any proceed
ing covered by this list.
"I integd to have any individual per
son who is arrested on a charge of
violating any of these 'don'ts' prose
cuted for malicious destruction of
property. That constitutes a misde
meanor and is punishable with a fine
and court costs.
"At the same time, we do not intend
to spoil the boys' fun by chasing them
in off the streets when they are in
dulging simply in a game of window-tick-tacking,
ar playing a .ioke on their
ciders by ringing door-bells.
"Even those features may be over
worked and the police will use discre
tion in determining if anyone is carry
ing these pranks too far.
Hallowe'en and the notion of playing
Are round and round divided.
And mony lads' and lasses' fates
Are there that night decided:
Some kindle, cuthie, side by side,
And burn thegither trimly;
Some start awa v.i' saucy pride
And jump out owrc the .cimly

grate over the fire, naming them after
their lovers. If the nut cracks or
jumps, it is a sign that the lover for
whom it was named is unfaithful.
If the nut blaze or burn, the lover
holds a high regard for the maid mak

the lover and the maid both burn to

Another tale that is told of Hal
lowe'en is that a child born upon Hal
lowe'en will be gifted with mysterious
powers of conversing with supernatur
al beings.
Many games arc played at the fire
side at Hallowe'en parties that have
been imported to this country. A
favorite old English custom is to hang
a stick from a string. On one end of
the stick is fastened an apple and at
the other end a lighted candle. The
stick is given a twirl and the contest
is for someone to seize the apple with
his teeth without the use of the hands.
As the game was played years ago,
the candle often whirled around in
time to singe the contestant upon the
forehead and then he had to give way
to the next man.
There also is the custom of floating
apples in a tub and having the chil
dren duck for them, attempting to
seize one with the teeth without using
the hands as an aid.
Many customs in connection with
Hallowe'en have become obsolete. One
however, that still prevails in Scotland
is the ceremony of pulling the kail
stocks or stocks of colewort.
The young people go out hand in
hand, blindfolded, into the kailyard or
garden, and each pulls the first stalk
he meets with and then returns to the
According, as the stalk is big or lit
tle, straight or crooked, so shall the
future wife or husband be of the party
by whom it is pulled. The quantity of
earth clinging to the roots, denotes
the amount of fortune or dowry and
the taste of the pith of custoc indicates
the temper.
Finally the stalks are placed one aft

Christian names of the persons who
chance thereafter to enter the house
are held in the same succession to in

the parties are to marry.
