Time , 1'lacc Tills might not be such a good verse, but it will be different ihan the customary method of telephoning. It will convey to the guests that each is to conic dressed as a ghost. If it docs what it Is expected to do, at the appointed hour there will come forth out of (he dark many weird looking figures wliich seem to be our modem version c' ghosts. If possible it is better to hold the ghostly party in a roDin or hall where the furniture may bs removed, .For a Halloween party without bobbing in a tub of water for apples, lying an apple to UP celling and trying to bite It, and blowing out a candle while blindfolded, would not be a projier sort of Halloween celebration at all. Or other mysterious Invitation? may be used. They may come properly addressed in an ordinary envelope, but Inside is onlv a blank sheet of paper with a brie'f sentence across the top "Hold me close to an electric light bulb." There is nothing mysterious, however, about the preparation ol these invitations They are simply written with a clean pen dipped in a solution oi baking soda. The letters are invisible until held to the light when they turn brown and disclose die foJIoivinf: "You are summoned to a session of ghosts to be held at the house of the two Jack-a-Lanterns on avenue, between and streets on Halloween. Approach promptly at o'clock, knock three times and the door will swing silently on its hinges to let you enter. Only ghosts will be admitted.".

For a very large group just doughnuts and coffee or doughnuts and cider may be served, and if very good doughnuts there will be no complaint from the guests on lack ol variety a more elaborate menu for a smaller group migh: consist of ,Iaek-o-I,antern sand- vichcs, pineapple salad garnished with, cheese, pumpkin, with individual pr npkin or apple pies and coffee 16. • dessert. The'sandwiches may be of the open variety, cut in rounds and spread generously with butler, cream cheese, or some other soft filling. The Jack-o-Lnntcrn faces are easily formed by sticking pieces of dates, figs or raisins in the soft surface fo represent eyes, uo=:> and mouth.
