FAIRIES WILL BE ABOUT Ancient Customs in Connection With the Observance of the Event. Tonight, when the world ia all asleep, or should be. and the clock speaks the hour of midnight, the earth, with its weight of care and cheer, is transformed into a happy hunting ground in which good fairies and evil spirits are supposed to disport themselves to the destruction anil disarrangement of things in general. That the visionary visitors are not responsible for the Hal-inw'een vagaries is a matter of slight satisfaction to householders and property owners, as human aeenoies displace the forces from another world in the mission of mischief. Hallow'een formerly eagerly anticipated and faithfully observed by old and young alike, is now apparently edging towards the ranks of the "has beens." and it is ieft almost entirely to the Juvenile portion of the population to attend to the observance of the vigil. The festival of Hallow'een. apparently wholly given up to merriment, has also a religious side, as It is on this occasion that the eve or vigil of All better known as All Saints' day. November 1st. is said to be rthserved. In Its religious coloring Hallow'eeft is ohserved in the Romnn Catholic. Pro-testant Episcopal and Lutheran churches. The festival was first observed in the eastern churches In the fourth century, while In the western churches the observance ranks from Boys Suits, heavy Scotch tweeds, lined with Italian cloth, stitched with silk, Norfolk jackets and knickerbocker pants, stylish ft CO and very durable, sizes 22 to 26, worth 54.00, selling at CiDU Itoys Suits in handsome browu checks, pleated coats, lined with fine Italian cloth, plain fronts, very nobby suit, worth $3.50 4) ft ft any other place in Canada, for iUU Boys' Suits, heavy durable Scotch tweed in brown and light checks, very pretty pat ems, including the new snowfhke. made in the very test way and equal to the best tailor-made 6uits, sizes 27 to ft QC wortli $5.00. to clear at sCitlD Hoys' Brownie Suits, coat, pants and vest, coat double breasted, lined with Italian cloth, handsomely braided, equal in every respect to the highest grade tustom-made suit, to fit boys from ages CA of 3 to years, north 4.5, to clear at. iwU Boys' f'rownie Suits, extra heavy Scotch tweed, coat, pants and vest.
