vote offer of tho election ai\d the
final end, of the campaign rapidly ap
proaching, this community is about to
m>c some of tiie hardest campaigning
and tlic most spectacular work .vet ex

Hie campaign is assuming jits logical
place as the one affair of importance.
All contestants are seething with
the hustle of preparation for the flua'
dash of supremacy—friends of the
candidates arc with one accord deter
mined to help their favorites fight
valiantly Hirough to victory. ‘Excite
ment is keyed to the highest pitch.
Riding on the waves of this won
derful demonstration of public enthu
siasm are the ambitious candidates
who are exerting vigorous efforts to
capture tile magnificent prizes—espe-
cially the luxurious automobiles and
the hundreds of dollars in great bags
of silver and gold From every neigh

victory there is abundant specula
tion as to the final outcome. First one
candidate and then another is picked
to land the big prize and this is tin
k" donbtedly due to the extreme close
ness of tbe race. It is only those
who rise to the occasion and main
tain a stiff upper lip, famishing aside
every obstacle that may arise, that
. have the best ebaDce of winning'
The race is too close to bank on
any' possibilities. Relaxation at. this
stage is suicidal to success. Deter
mination to win, in connection with
relentless activity, of vote-getting will I
make any contestant a winner. What
is intended to be doite must be done
.now. To dilly-dally or delay is to let |

If there ever was a time candidates I
should be up and doing, it iS" right
now. The prizes are worth every bit
of effort in you, AVhere else ol how
else cun your time be as productive or
as remunerative? No one has any
thing "rfucher” / <bday. Not a candi
date is resting so easily that she or he
need not put forth every ounce of en
ergy )>ossiblc. In fact, it would not
boa hard matter for down
in the second division to take a spurt
anti come up into the running—yes,
and go around out ia front. Work as
you never worked before.
Tlte liveliest part of the competit’on
is now at hand and while nil the lead
ers arc on the same footing, at the
same time those who want to—and
"ill—arc afforded the opportunity of
the entire campaign to forge ahead
and corral the winning votes.
In conclusion, let it bo emphatically
stated that this is the time ok all
times—these last two tlays of the big
vote period are the most vitally im
jiortaiit of the campaign.
Saturday night at 12 o’clock looms
big on the horizon—every tick of the

cash awards. Aren’t these splendid
prizes to be won in such a short space
Thero is a merry race on—a race

LEGENDS OF HALLOWE’EN.
i Customs That Have Lasted For Two
[ New York. Oct. 30.—Tomorrow is
j All Hallow's Eve. otherwise Hallow-
I e'en, a festival that was once eagerly
! looked forward to. Here and there,
j no doubt, the oltl Hallowe’en customs
1 will still be kept up. The children
i will bob for apples, and the young
j men and maidens will roast ciiest
t nuts by the fire in order to tell by the
' way they crack and jump, if their
I sweethearts are true or false. But,
speaking generally, these simple
amusements no longer amuse.
| However, they have ■ lasted long.
[ Two thousand years, at least. For
; this bobbing for apples and divina
! tion by nuts is a survival from the
j worship of pomona. the Roman god
: dess of fruit trees. Moreover, this
same pagan goddess is responsible for
many other quaint rites peculiar to All
For example, there is one which
will, even in these modern, matter-of
faet days, cal! mtjny a simple maid
en from iter bed at midnight to eat
an apple before her mirror. If she
does this, combing her tresses mean
while, tlip face of Iter future husband
may be expected to look over her
shoulder into the glass. So. at least,
runs the old belief, though how the
charm will work in the case of the
bobbed or shingled haired girl re
mains to be seen.
Apples and women have always
held close association with Halowe’eu
celebrations. A hazy mist of ethical
mystery seems to hang about them
which is ever brought to mind at the
approach of the eve of All Saints'. But
j for woman, the old custom of making
j merry at Hallowe'en would long ago
have lapsed into desuetude,
i As for the apple, it found its way
j nto the observance long ago from tiie
day enl'idd “La Mas Pblialt." its
! pronunciation became corrupted into
| lamb's wool, which later was applied
■ to the Halowe'en beverage in Ireland.
| which was made of crushed roasted
j apples in which mRk had been mixed.
■ Hallowe'en in the Folonnial days in
1 America was little celebrated save by
; some of the English and Irish, who
| still kept the customs of the Old
| World, |such as .apple-ducking and
snapping and girls who tried the ap
ple-paring charm to reveal their lov- j
| ers initial and the comb-and-minor
j test to see their faces. Ballads were
j sung and ghost stories told,
t But America uo longer gives way
ito the superstitious oEservanceh of
j Hallowe’en ; goblins, appari
i [ions and bonfires arc no longer a part
!of the day. The small boy and girl
' lung since became .its chief actors.
For the grown-ups the celebrnt on is
i confined chiefly to dances and special
entertainments in theatre <lr cabaret,
i It is altogether a different Hallowe'en
j from that in, the days of yore,
j Yet it has lost none of its mirth
| and fun, even though it does not hold
! upon the calendar the place it once
held. Whether goblins, witches or
apparitions really do appear on Hnl
| lowc'en or not, the night is marked
| with revelry and merrymaking. It is
a night apart for “spirits,” though
[ the latter are not likely to be so much
iin evidence as in the pre-Volstead
But mischievous “spirits" gtlll
choose the night for carrying off gates
and other objects and hiding them or
putting them out of reach. Bags Ail
ed with flour will sprinkle the passer
by. Door bells will ring and myster
ious knockings will be heard. Lights
will shine from the eyes of pumpkins
and special games will be played by
the young folks. These and numerous
other reminders serve to keep alive
the traditions of the ancient festival.

- nol guilty of the charges against him
i and informed the court he was ready

1 His plea was entered, and the trial

The air officer stood smiling to aq
-1 swer the charges. He , said “not

. pacifications were called in turn by
■ tbe prosecuting officer.
■ The plea did not deny the accuracy
• of the charge the Colonel bad made
in his San Antonio statement, accus
i ed his superiors cf criminal and al- \
most, treasonable conduct in adminis
tering the air services of the govern
ment. but merely comprised a denial
that this accusation constituted con
duct in violation of good order and
discipline as declared in the charges.
The request for a bill of particulars I
was thrown out by the court after a
heated argument between counsel, in
which Representative Reid, of Illinois,
attorney for Mitchell, declared the
charges as worded by the War I>e-1
partment were “too vague."
The court law officer held that since 1
all the charges wore set out in the;
specifications already filed, the request i
of the defense should -be denied. This
finding the court accepted without ob
jection from any member.
After the plea of not guilty had been
entered, Mr. Reid objected that the
proceedings were not according to the
| court manual, since the charges
against the accused had not been
brought in a mnnner fixed by the
