It Is Receiving Dne Attention on the Part of tbe Young. Hallowe'en parties are holding tbe attention of the young folks at present.

In the olden time, All Hallow's Eve was not merely a night given over to elfish prank: it was tbe chosen and fateful time for the true divination of their future matrimonial lot. Heropseed and fernseed, candles and mirrors, apples and especially nuts, all figured conspicuously in the midnight ceremonies of those bygone years, and many a heart went pit-a-pat as the rows of roasting nuts, popping or not popping, on the glowing hearthstone, betokened the future fate of the momentous question on the lips of possible sweethearts.

How to Prepare Dried Mushrooms. Select some good, sound mushrooms. Wipe and peel them. Lay them on a tout sheet of paper in dripping tins in cool oven or in the sun till they ara much shriveled, which shows you that »11 the moisture in them has evaporated. Then either hang them up in paper bags in a dry, cool place or pack them away in tins with a tight fitting lid.

In nearly all the churches or in the monastic chapels hereabout I find swarms of Greek soldiers. They coma in, cross themselves, stand listening while the priest reads from the holy books in the peculiar quavering singsong which makes the words quite incomprehensible even to Greeks, and then they kiss the pictures. The other day at Zarkos I saw them crowding to kiss a round inch of the skull of St; Nicholas and a few of Cbrysostoir/'s perished finger joints. Their mother tongue was Greek, but they kissed tbe bones and went away.

The poor man was overcome at the loss of two oxen, tbe very leaders of his team, without which all the rest were useless for the plow. The government had taken them, and killed them to feed the soldiers and in return had given him a paper promise to pay.
