About It ?
The world grows older nad grayer year by
your , and , unhappily much of ttio poetry is
relegated to the past ; fairytales along with
superstition , and Incarnations against the
b powers of evil. '
In the old-folk lore days , when the times
were full of woudor and tlio people densely
ignorant , llrmly crediting as fact that they
were everywhere surrounded by an uncanny
crowd of wlerd spirits , it was but natural to
resort to uny means of divination with the
probubln aid of those enemies to poaca of
initin , to go in "whoro angels fear to tread. "
It was In this wise that the practices of iho
eve of All Suluta originated , practices Unit
still hold favor In Scotland , Wales nnd some
parts or Ireland. The unwcddcd of both
sexc-j invoke the 'power that bo' by the pull
ing of Kail , burnhiK of nuts , sowing hotnp-
eed. ( johij ( below stairs with u lighted can
dle ialmad to search a mirror for n future
wife or liushuinl ; tluno , with the "throo
ilislfcs" form of divination and innumerable
other riles sot forth in fetching jingle In
Broat/s poem , "Ilolloweon , " are prac
ticed by them every twelve months.
'Jhp whole tenor of the evening is eerie and
calculated to inspire the cuests with a atato
of nerves most llublo to rocolro gruesome
hnprcimlons and there have been occasions of
hhtory when minds not "ower slroug" have
yielded to the uwful reaches of the imagina
tion with the sad result of "living and dying
It is In tlio inoro benighted regions of any
country that these evidences of mental
shadow really hold a respected place , to us
the customs have como tittered anil paritled ,
as the excuse for n hoydenlsh social evening
with no thought of truth or reason lor belief
in the lalry practices.
ACaluly < > rman ,
Halloween was eelobraled variously in
vOmuuu. Among other entertainments
Thursday evening was a very unliuiu affair
la the way of a 'candy gorman. ' given m the
Clarke row nt the Misses Uuryuu'a.
There were ten couples dancing and the
favors wore entirely of candy. Camty dolls ,
cU'iirs , llsh , canes and ovcty conceivable
thing in sugar form *
The Indirect favors wore appropriate to
the eve of All Saints. Apploi were arranged
in tempting heaps with a girl's name oa uaoh
one and tlio man , of course , danced with the
girl wliosu uaino he drew.
Again u yoaag woman was seated and a
number of young IIIPII were given matches
to burn for her sweet sake , the onu burning
the match without brooking the charred
uliost of it , found his reward in her company
lor tlio waltz.
Another figure was so curious as to deserve -
servo relating. Two very email upplos were
uuspeniled from the ctmnuclior. and two men
were to stab at thorn with carving ktiivos ,
the one whoso skill ploroed the apple a la
William Toll , had the pleasure of
dancing with HOIIIO chosen young woman.
Tlirnu with IniiUQicrubla other Halloween
Unvices lent an added zest to a cburuilng

Hallowe'en nt liriiwiicll Hall.
Tuli wolru night of the witches wan Ilia
occasion of great sport and merriment to the
bevy of young girls at Drownoll hall , and
a plcaianter Hallowe'en than they onjoyoJ
can hardly bo Imagined. The festivities
begun with a brigh't little farce , played by a
Imlf-dozon girls of the colleciato department ,
after which , attired in faney dress and mas
querade costumes , all joined in a crr.md
march. Then followed dancing and all man
ner of appropriate games and tricks , by
which each tried to divineher fortune.
After u charade the party broke up , to un

Tlio Coat Makes tins IMnn.
Apropos of what one should wear , It has
been whispered between the dying fire and
early candle light that the young men of thq
Cotillion club are seriously considering the
wearing of cutaway coats Instead of the con
ventional evening dross.
Tiiat It is true ono is disinclined to believe ,
but the suggestion is so appalling as to provoke -
voko a remonstrance.
In the first place , they cannot consistently
commit such a social solecism. They organ
ized tholr club with uny amount of swagger ,

the most crushing nffuir of the season and a
promise of something delightful In the way
Now that Iho bravest auionc our young
men are beginning to malio visits and attend
the theater la evening dross , what In the
name of all that is a la mode Is tlio use of
going back to the fashion of popular dress
years ago , when Omaha was distinctly nrnn- ,
Itivo ? It wore inoro forgivable to go fur
ther Into the past and adopt the aboriginal
paint and feathers , that , ut least , would bo
However , do not let us retrograde , es
pecially la 11 matter that custom lias about
us firmly established do rigour as ttio use of
the fork. Possibly some young men among
them have no evening dre sos. Very well ,
then , have little Informal gatherings and
got as much sweetness oat of them its they
can hold ; but , in the name of honesty , don't
attempt u cotillion club , with "lady patron-
usscss" 'and all the frills , unless you are
able to dross up "to your blue china. "
It docs not "follow uft Iho night the day , "
that because the ball is sot rolling in Omaha
'and ' all goes merry as a marriage boll , ' that
the young women in society are all given over
to the di/.zy whirl.
On the contrary there nro myriads of Im
proving things that go to engage their atten

who , with the enviable gift of ingenuity ,
sends oat some little card invitation , bearing
on its face the wherewithal to pique curlos-

Mr. aad Mrs. Guy Uarton , on Thursday

shaded lamp. - *
Her lint selections strengthened the im
pression that this was u veritable feast of

There is nothing under the smiling or
frowning skies that makes the homo nest so
attractive as the baby. The little guileless ,
euro free life is the delight and wonder of
older folk , und their nearest wisli is that the
darling should only lose his smile In sleep to
find it when ho wakes.
In the homes that nro blessed , everything
that is part and parcel of the day is made to
conform to his needs end comfort.
Ho is the autocrat of heart und lioarth and
there is ulivo within every mother and
father a tender commiseration for the little
ones less fortunate than their own.
The baby requirements of sleep , food and
warmth uro so easily gratlllcd by the well-
to-do nnd BO hard to supply by the poor ,
though the mother-love is Just as yearning
and as anxious.
The good women who have interested
themselves in the baby world wtiero silver
spoons are unknown , have built a bit' nur
sery for the comfort of the little ones , while
their mothers arc working during the day.
Next Tuesday evening , tit their charltv
ball , they will furnish music nnd sapper and
dancing as an "open sesame" to the public
heart , nnd , as a joy to the public memory ,
tli at those babies may bo kept toasty warm
during the coming winter.
And then there is nn ugly debt of $3,000
shadowing the creche that may Icoop tjie
wholesome sunshine away from those dear
little souls if kindly hanus do not interfere.
The orcclio is the swoctost charity in
Omaha , and above nil others should bo sup
ported. Give , therefore , generously from
your hearts through your pocket uud the
babies will grow and thrive , whileGod will
