There is a similar difficulty in regard to the newspaper and magazine suggestions for entertainment* to be given at cer tain seasons. It invariably happens that hints for a Valentine Party, for. Instance, sugri%t themselves to the writer’s mind on St. Valentine’s Day, and so they are wiltten too late to be of any use to anyone. The woman who entertains finds these helps very of any -ise to anyone. The woman who entertains finds these hints very helpful In their uniqueness, and She cuts out the column for future refer ence, hut loses it long before the fol-j lowing summer has passed. Now as ! we really want ttTese little suggestions for Hallowe’en parties to be of some slight Use we have determined to pub lish them two weeks beforehand. Appropriate Decorations. A Hallowe’en party is one that anybody can give, for It can be equally as charming, possibly more so. when it] is carried out in the strictest line of simplicity, as when hundreds of dol lars are spent. To begin with, Na ture furnishes, free of cha’ge. all of the decorations. Already the woods and fields are brilliant with the most effective flower for decorative use, the radiant goldenrod. The graceful sprays are very lovely In huge jardin ieres, or when fastened to the wall with a frieze effect. Indeed there is no end to the goldenrod’s possibilities in this line. * No less effective are the hardier ferns to be found in the swamps any where within baif an hour’s drive from the city.

' A great deal depends upon the light ing of a room.

These latter arc made of pumpkins scooped out, with Inclusions for mohth, nose and eyes, the whole covered with very gay tissue paper and a lighted candle placed inside. A large open fire place with huge logs Is of course a very necessary adjunct. “Dancing in the Barn.” Drawing rooms are, in realily, not at all suited for a place In which to give a Halloween party. There should be chosen, If there is such a thing in the house, a large hall, or an un furnished attic. One happy hostess, who rejoiced in a big barn-like stable gave her October entertainment there. Hay piled about made luxurious divans and there was plenty of space for a' old time country dance. Because it is impossible for very fashionable peo ple to be thoroughly unconventional, this particular party ended with a fe*v figures of the german.

It is always considered bad taste to I wear elaborate toilets to a Hallow e'u party, as the games played are a-d |to disarrange them, and simplicity, j is really more appropriate. jA The Cizmes Played. No Halloween party could be com plete without the strict observance of the time honored customs connected with tho date. Everybody knows ; about the bobbing for apples, tfe« dropping of molted lead through a gol den wedding ring, holding a lighted j candle before a mirror, and jumping over candles, to tea! the fate of man and maid; but there are always pleas ing variations. Since Consueio Vanderbilt —at a ! Halloween house party which Included In its numbers her future husband, the Duke of Marlborough threw over her shoulder an apple pealing which formed the lucky W, this peculiar fashion of testing one’s fate has been I very popular. Another favorite ; custom is that of roartlng chestnuts on I the open grate, for tho parring of couples for the evening’s dances, etc. A unique form of entertainment Is to jhave what is called the “Hidden Wed j ding Ring” In a peaked plat of flour, I each one to take off a layer with a 1 knife, the one that uncovers the picking It up with bis or her teeth® The weal or woe that consists in try ! ing to throw an apple through a i horseshoe suspended in a doorway at a convenient height. If successful, prosperity and happiness will be his or hers; if not, vice-versa. To Break the Ice. The heading of this suggestion need hardly be taken in the, literal meaning. llf it were it would surely be impos ! gible in this semi-tropical clime. By breaking the ice is meant the social reserve which generally freezes the spontaneous enjoymeEt out of the at mosphere when people are first gather ed together.

Turn about U fair play. people some time like to act as though they children; and infinite pleas ure was recently afforded by a hostess who invited her gueata upon their entrance to a peanut hunt. This great Georgia produet waa hidden in every conceivable, chiefly inconceiva ble portions of the bouse thrown open to the guests. Each guest, was fur bished with a black aud yellow (the witch colors) al’.k bag. The one first filling this with peanuts was accorded an appropriate prize. Still another “breaking the ice" process was to have everyone engage in a general "hunt the slipper" contest. Any other old faphloned game may be Introduced with as equally good effect. An appropriate centre piece for the Halloween supper table is a Rmall Jack-o’-lantern heßped about with or anges. apples, grapes and nots. Charming name cards are preened Autumn leaves upon which the letter ing Is done In gilt. An old fashioned country supper is considered most appropriate. This may consist of, crackers and cheese apples, crullers ami cider. For those who desire a more conventional sup per, a good menu would be; Bouillon in cups. Lobster Newburg. Creamed oysters. Chicken croquettes. Sandwiches, /ellltd tongue. Boned turkey. Salad. Ices. Frappe. Cake. Bonbons. Coffee. Wine. Punch. Lemonade. As the midnight hour approaches, *no matter what has been the enter tainment for the evening, all the lights must be extinguished, and the guettn gathered around the open fire place, each one supplied with a fagot. These fagots are in turn thrown on the blaze; and as each one burns its owner must tell a story, a ghost story preferably. The more blood curdling these stories the .better, for the truly successful Halloween party is marked throughout by a pronounced diabolism —from the hand painted invitation or namented with red devils to the last shuddering midnight story with which the evening ends. „ ow»t to* ritotw «a tot *h*w wap. kk» mm to* wfcrarf to* I* a # m ,a. : _ »2 - *w v Owm knrtaown k Maa arrh tom aa IteOtowdi tm 11 wad to* amtodto mbAi fk’i w*»mtoto* torir* mm** to* •**.

The growing number of di vorces bos also aroused attention, and nil of the churches have united in an effort looking to such restrictions as will abate the one and curtail the oth er. The Anti-Divorce Movement, The anti-divorce movement, which also contemplates a reform of the Jef fersonville practices, was Inaugurated by the Yearly meeting of Friends, al though previously there bad been much discussion in all church circles. A committee, headed by S. E. Nichol son, of Kokomo; Eliza C. Armstrong, editor of the Friends’ Missionary Ad vocate; Dr. Robert E. Pretlow, of Thorntown; Milton Honson, ex-mem ber of the Legislature from Hamilton county, and Rev. Nathan H. Clark, of Westfield, was appointed to solicit the cooperation of other religious bodies of the state. This committee will do the major part'Vif its work by correspondence, and within a month it expects to have the cooperation of all the leading re ligious denominations of the state, af ter which o representative sub-cqm rolttee will be entrusted with the work of formulating materia! for action by the General Assembly. Some difficulty ts expected In harmonizing the dis senting views. Many believe that no divorce should Ire granted except for scriptural reasons. Others believe that DAVID J.

Nor a few church people, however, are found who believe that when a mistake ms been made persons should he freed at once. I '- All of them, however, concur >n the opinion that an a opal ling number ol divorces are applied for in the state, j ver.vlng frr m 10 to to nt every term of court in each county. The principal cause stems to he a growing disrespect for the marriage relation and a lack of proper consideration of its Importance and sacredness prior to Its consumma tion. Time to Call a Halt. Whatever may be the divergent views as to divorce, however, ihere Is j almost a unit of expression In con- , demning the free and easy methods which prevail In assuming the roar- 1 rlage relation at Jeffersonville. Sev eral states, more particularly Ken tucky, find It a Gretna Green, and it is alleged that there is the roost shame less evasion of the law by comity of ficers, justices of the peace and minis- j ters of the Gospel, as well as by the persons deslrlDg marriage. Marriage is really the chief industry of the town. Principals go through the form of pro curing a license, but depend upon any vagabond who offers his services to make oath to the affidavit, and so it is that certain scalawags make a busi- , ness of procuring affidavits, and cheer- i fully perjure themselves for the small j fee attached. That the princloals ap plying for license are non-residents or minors Is a matter of small moment. So great a moral stench arises because of the looseness of prevailing meth ods that the local press of that city has sounded a warning, speaking of it as 16Pages-Sflctioßll 3 CENTS ACOPY. «*»» Mar oahto* bto» to *mm m w '**4 : ltmm M *„IW t a**tk»> «to*Wg« «.*.• m> HIM *» 4 *M« »f (took 4*ll I tty **4 •«*» twwtofv* ag to* eahfwt *f i gietoatkwi tow It* •* ta»*a*wit» >,%«*d to ikto itae and hi* »4dr*aw** | Mira twg at • htok «*d»* H* waa •ntoktot ad ia* ltia«gag»»r agirarwy rmto fa** !••• i» Jog*, llto* and j ••• got outs • Madia* *:t>tog a* ke*k« •mm hat ihrwgghwi ito wtod* twat* [of Jraw T«*h to aa* wed ktwwn M» baa had tottok »*p»r*e**« to I«*gil>» •awctkdpahig* and hea »-*a • apgpbry at4*l* *fto» to tto «nm*Mi tw*. age Ipr at to* skUHT. ato g.i ige* agd to**.

The Press Cries Out. the Jeffersonville News: "Tb» time has come when the free-for-all marriage husin“ss in Jeffersonville slwmld be stopped, innocent girls still in short dresses are married without hesitancy; to bloated, blear-eyed drunk a blackleg.- assfnst as they will stand up'before sonic one empowered to per forin the ceremony. There s an ordl narc against matrimonial runner* operethtf. but it bus become a dead letter and is winked at by the police, who dally and nightly see It carried or. Decency demands that this winking be stopped.” Even the Louisville, K>\, press has taken the alarm over the Iniquitous practice* prevailing In JefTcrsorvilic and they take occasion to say: "The lews of Indiana are strict relative to the issuance of the marriage license, but because of the many eloping cott i pies from Kentucky and the conveu -1 ience of the evasion of legal require ! ments. little respect or attention is i given to the statutes at Jeffersonville. Years ago it became the fashion for runaway couples to eros* the river here and be married on the Indiana border. This custom has grown until it puts aside all restraint, perjury is invited and misery is made to order." A ease which aroused widespread in dignation recently Involved prominent fatailles of St. Louis and Louisville. Within a few days both the husband and wife were anxious to free them selves from the marital dagredatlon In which they bad Involved themselves, the bridegroom claiming that he was led. into the affair while intoxicated. The Jeffersonville authorities try to excuse themselves by cla.ming that they saw no signs of intoxication oil the pert of the bridegroom, but they do not deny that they knew’ that he was a non-resident of the state, and therefore rightfully barred under the last
