However that may he, the party idea does have its good and had points, of course.. It is excellent for the smaller children who take gleeful and amusing part in the costume array. But there is always an older group, relatively few in number, who feel they must dominate the scene by turning the festivities into a minor free-for-all.

One person says it was "terrible the way those kids ran around and the things they did" and the next explains he "has never seen ! ^hi^Tu'estenf.TheateT^: them better behaved." As far as we could determine, there ' ""' between C ° ral seemed to be a lot of petty marauding and running around, with not so much of serious nature. Garbage cans, as usual, bore, the brunt of modern Hallowe'en antics. Police authorities say they doubt the wisdom of the SYNOPSIS Mrs. Peake, proprietor of Hill House, New England summer resort, is found murdered by th« "spite fence" erected near her property by her estranged •later. Hiss Ivy Newconib. Previous to the murder the guests had been concerned about the poisoning of one of their number, Mrs. Rutherford, who recovers; strange sounds of a prowler on the property, and the ransacking of one of the rooms. Those at Hill House besides Dr. Neal and Josie Peake, children of the dead woman, are Sally Gordon, spending her first vacation there; her close friends, Rhoda and her flance Duncan; Dr. Paul and Pauline Rutherford, children of Mrs. Rutherford; Coral Easton, Bruce Orton and Joseph Barry. Josie is friendly with Alan Murray, who lives at Miss Ivy's, and that infuriates her brother, Neal. He likes Coral Eastern, for whom has no use. The police begin investigation. The police chief enlists the aid of Miss Gordon then introduces Captain Lancy, well-known detective, who has been called in to take charge of the case. As Captain LdUkcy begins to question all of those •t Hill House, Miss Ivy pays a sur- priM visit. During a heated argument Mils Ivy collapses from shock and is . Easton and Josie breaks out during the detective's examination of Sally Gordon. Josie tells the detective of finding a silken thread of beads from Miss Boston's gown in her the one that had been ransacked. CHAPTER TWENTY-THREE CLEARLY before me, my returning memory brought a picture of Josie in her pretty sparkling rosy dress seated beside me at dinner, my first meal at Hill House. Again I saw the wet bedraggled hem of the same dress as she crouched before the fire, and still later, its crispness gone, its full skirt hanging limply about her as we said good night. I stared at Josie in momentary wonder; then voiced the thought in my mind. But, Josie, perhaps the beads "No, they did not," she replied decisively. "I am sure of that." At Lancy's questioning expression, she explained: "Both Coral Easton and I have dresses embroidered with opalescent beads. Her offs is something that might well be given considerable thought before next year's plans are made. Ninety-nine percent of all minor Hallowe'en damage, it is certain, is caused by about 1 percent of the kids involved.

The community party idea is excellent for everybody but them, and Ihey would be at it anyway. To the person too quick to condemn the seasonal elfishness of the upspringing generation, perhaps the best answer lies in some such query as this: And where, kind sir, were you on the evening of Oct. 31, 1894? TAGS IS TAGS Henceforth in Michigan, tags will be tags. And why not? We refer, of course, to auto tags. Fundamentally, if we can remember back far enough, an auto license was a means Of identifying n car. Then, by tricks that increased j best? i prefer to let her think that with the years, a license became more especially a means o' rose. We wore the dresses last night. "This is how I know these beads same from her dress and not from mine. I ran the vacuum cleaner over the rug in my room Saturday morning. I always clean the room myself, and I am positive I went aver every inch of the rug. I put the dress on Sunday afternoon, yesterday, and I did not go into my study until this morning." Lancy fingered his chin while he considered the matter. "Are you willing to leave these beads in my hands and trust me to use them as evidence against .Miss Easton at the time I think we have no proof of her having .,,....,, _, . .

"You do think it,.means something?" she asked. waukee several days ago after they had allegedly printed |12,600 worth;of c6nnterfeit $5 and $10 bills on a press in a WPA printshop. ^ : • Counterfeiting, is scarcely a joke,'.'of course. But at least this can be said for the two Milwaukee men: They were trying to operate one sure enough self-liquidating WPA project. ; .. . •.. YVhen it comes to getting up in the morning, eitch of us is the most. ;jmportant person,in the. world. Ko one can quite do the job for us. 'In the'end, we either do it for ourselves or it doesn't get done: whether^ it means that she was in your room or someone wants us to think that she was, I cannot as yet determine. Tel! me, Miss Peake, do yiju know If. before this, any beads from Miss Easton's fallen gown?" 'Josie laughed. It was a bitter little sound with no mirth in it "Yes. I-, think her beads have been picked up In every room where she wore the dress." "Then it would have been very easy for someone wishing: to in- volve her In the ransacking of your room to pick up this string of beads and drop it there." "But," cried Josie, in a voice decidedly shriller than her usual deep mellow tone, "who would do a thing like that?" Her face changed, she clasped her hands tightly together, her voice dropped to a whisper. "Only the murderer would do such a thing." "I agree. And for that reason we will keep the beads a secret until we have more information. Shall we not?" "By all means." Josie lifted her head proudly. "I do not like Coral Easton. I do not believe she is the woman my brother thinks she is; but I would not do anything to involve her in a crime of which she is innocent." Lancy's stern face relaxed. "You have decided as I thought you would, Miss Peake. We will now recall your brother and—remember— not one word to him about the beads." He stepped to the door and called Neal, who came promptly from the lounge. He looked inquiringly from one to the other. His face was stern and his eyes shadowed with pain. To me, he looked even more worried and anxious than before. "Sit down, Dr. Peake," was Lancy's greeting, "and explain just why you accused Miss Newcomb of killing your mother." Neal was plainly eager to tell the story: to lay the burden of his suspicions upon the detective. Substantially, his story was the same as that Josie told me that afternoon. But when he finished with the remodeling of Hill House and the building of the spite fence, he paused and looked searchingly at Lancy. "The rest of what I have to say is only a combination of remarks mother—" (he sighed as he uttered the word) "made at different times and my own guesses, which, of course, may be wrong, though I do not think so. Yet it is something which you must hear to understand why I feel as I do." "Go ahead," Lancy encouraged. "Sometimes our guesses come mighty close to the truth." "For years we have ignored the spite fence," Neal continued. "I know mother regretted her sister's attitude, but there was nothing she could do about it and, as she felt herself absolutely in the right, she tried, with more or less success, to put the whole affair out of her mind. She had hidden as much of the fence as possible with the rose arbor and shrubbery and, unless someone passed a remark about it, which was seldom, we forgot it was there. At least, I know I did, though underneath it still rankled." Lancy smiled understandingly. "Sort of a continuous irritant which you'd had so long tt became a commonplace." "That's it exactly, sir. Well, as I said, I rarely gave the thing a thought any more until this spring. I had a leave of absence the first week in May and came home. When I arrived I was horrified at the alarming change in mother's appearance. You have seen her, so you know she was huge in body, but until this year her flesh was healthy, solid, with no haggard lines or bad color. "I found she had changed entirely. I don't know whether she had actually lost weight or not; mother never would consent to be weighed or have a physical examination, but her clothes seemed to fit her as before, so I presume her size was the same. But in place of healthy color and solid appearance, her flesh was flabby, a bad color ant fine lines showed on her face. "I believe that mother's bulk was due to a glandular condition, and her unexpected change naturally worried me. I immediately asked her to allow me to give her a complete physical examination, but she flatly refused. Then I urged her t« go to some doctor; after all, there was no .reason for mother to have much faith in me. I aip still only an interne, you know." "I know," muttered Lancy under his breath. "Go on." "She wouldn't do that either. I urged, argued and made so much talk about it that, for the first time since I have known her, she lost her temper. It was nothing but worry and anxiety, she told me, and my fussing was only making it worse. "Of course, I wanted to know what the worry and anxiety was over, but she refused to tell me in detail. From things she did say, I doped this much out. You understand this was going on all the time I was at home. It wasn't until after I went back to the hospital that I put everything together and seemed to get a ray of sense out of the thing. I wrote her what I thought I had found out, but she refused to discuss the matter by SCOTTVILLE News From Mason County's Second Largest City, Agricultural and Dairying Center MRS.

Mrs Jonn B i egalle . weeks ago, she seemed so much better that I didn't want to upset her again by even mentioning it." Neal seemed to lose himself in hia thoughts and was silent so long that Lancy prodded gently: "Go on, Dr. Peake. You haven't told us a thing yet." "I know I haven't, and it's such a nebulous thing I can't expect you to see eye %:> eye with me or even comprehend why I should be so uneasy. Unless you knew mother as she was before this spring and then saw her as she was — yesterday, you wouldn't understand what I mean." "I know what he means," I boldly butted in. "Rhoda told me yesterday that Mrs. Peake wasn't §o jolly and full of fun as she always had been and that twice she had caught her looking at the spite fence and sighing. I mention this," I went on, looking squarely at Lancy, "so that you will know others besides Dr. Neal" (I couldn't call him Dr. Peake, so compromised) "felt the difference." "I did, too," cried Josie, "but I didn't know what the trouble was." "Neither do I, except what I guessed," Neal returned grimly.

Doet the tweet potato have good nutritive qualities? Yes. Its starch has many properties that make it valuable in industry as well as in dietetics, particularly cooking. All starches have two portions, one water-soluble and one water- insoluble—Alpha and Beta Amy- lose. When a starch solution is heated, it thickens .with turbulent splashing and foaming up to a certain point until a constant body or viscosity is reached. The sweet potato has lots of Beta Amyiose and gelatinizes at lower temperatures than other commercial starches. Fpr this reason it can be used in sizing textile fibers. In cooking, sweet potato starch added to batter in all types of cakes gives uniformity of texture free from gM boles. In cake icing, sweet potato starch retards checking.
