The celebration ofj Hallowe'en is one of the most delightful
custorns that has been bequeathed to us by the "ancient
heathens," and, although years have changed its customs and
superstitions, it still retains its original popularity. The maids
of old Rome observed the day, but to them it was surrounded
with more or less of a religious atmosphere. Shakespeare's !
people knew all about it, but the holiday probably reached its
: greatest state of perfection with the "bonny folk" of the
u;Manr?a for Rnhhip. T?iirns tplls n t hnr "snmo merru
friendly countra. folks, together did convene to burn their
nits, an pou thir stocks and haud thir Hallowe'en.
, Mast of the prettiest and quaintest superstitions connected
with the' date were originated by these people, which have
since been annually revived, and tonikht. crav Salem vouths
and maids will participate, in the safme escapades and en
deavor to provoke the good will of the witches and spirits in
the same manner that flaxen-haired lasses and kilted laddies
of the heather and braes did in the time of The Bruce; and
the Carricks. , ! i
V The younger. contingent in local society has been and will
be especially active, a number of informal affairs in celebra
tion of the holiday bing announced. I All the pretty and sen
timental superstitions that are affiliated with this date on
the calendar will be revived, and scores of lovely maids, rt
other times too modest to listen to; the call of their own
hearts, will so conduct themselves as to make the Carlins,
witches and elves think a new variety of beings has drifted
in from far-off country of shadows, j

Clean Up Prjces on
Fall and Winter
Entrancing things, are the suits of this winter season. . They are youthful,
and yet withall, there is a "sophiyticated touch about them that bespeaks
of the fashions of France. Splendidly serviceable are the serge and trico
tine suits;. while those of soft velours, broadcloths and the finer weaves
win much popularity by the richness of their weaves.
While the range of shades is large, there is great demand for the newer
tints developed from golden browns. Many suits arc trimmed with fur.
