Halloween is a myth that is it is founded on pure superstition. It is so far As May be determined the outcome of the narration of Many myths of the druids and the superstitious people of the Long Long ago. The anniversary night itself is taken in part from the festival of Pomona which was celebrated by j the Pagan romans at their season of apples and nuts from this occasion no doubt came the famous nut crack and snap Apple night of the old Britain. Also it was the time at which the ancient druids held their autumn feast to the suns in thanksgiving for the Harvest. On the eve of this festival the druids believed the lord of death called together out of their bondage the wicked souls that had for a year been condemned to dwell in the bodies of animals from this perhaps sprang the supernatural Side of halloween. Again these same old druids who you remember once inhabited England at this Celebration built huge bonfires in Honor of Baal and indulged in such feasting and Many games around them. According to scottish superstition a halloween is the time when witches devils fairies and Imp elves hold their annual carnival. They meet on that night to concoct mischief and having mapped out All the evil they will do in the coming year each anoints his feet and shoulder with the blood of a murdered baby. Then they Fly away on Broomsticks to torture and Harry certain of their victims. But just before cock Crow they assemble again and make merry dancing round and round with their backs to each other. The old scotch people used to believe that there was Only one Way to avoid the evil charms that witches might work upon them. And that was to keep the Tongue Busy saying kind words about other people and to wrap their Glaidies Quot or cloaks about shivering children whenever they were found the Good souls they argued who would be walking on Earth doing their last penance before rising to heaven on All Saint s Day would pick up All these kind words and Good deeds and Stone the witches with them until each Witch had shed one drop of red blood and one of Black Poison both of these drops to come from their left shoulder Blades. How much nicer our halloween and our halloween beliefs Are now a Days today it is All fun and frolic. But you must remember people in those old Days were not educated As we Are and they were dreadfully superstitious.

Three years afterwards they decided to come to America and they arrived in this country August 1867. After spending three years in Keokuk Iowa and four years in Paris 111., or. Blout and his family came to Attica and this has been their Home Ever since. At that time there were a number of prominent jewish families in the City and the congregation of Bene Jesurun which had been organized sept. 8, 1867, was thriving. Or. Blout was chosen to be the rabbi and he held this position until three years ago at which time the congregation had so decreased owing to the death of Many of its older members and the moving away of the younger generation that it was disbanded. Or. And mrs. Blout were the parents of eight children two of them dying in infancy. The widow one son and four daughters still survive. The children Are mrs. Rachel Levor mrs.

Edison is working on a series of highly educational films the portrayal for example of the internal operation of steam turbines the picturing of Plant and animal life in germination and development and Kindred themes where the picture taking the place of dry text or tedious Laboratory practice will visualize for Young students the things they ought to know it is related of the great inventor that he has been engaged for months in perfecting these films but has not achieved a degree of Success where he will consent to let them go to the Market it 13 one of his characteristics that he invents a thing first and talks about it afterwards wherein he differs from some few pseudo scientists who might be mentioned whose inventions Seldom if Ever reach the commo reial stage even if they really become experimentally operative in laboratories. Concerning the new educational films it is urged that while they Are a Long step Forward in the visualization of difficult processes and while they represent quite the highest educational function of the motion picture they May nevertheless be More harmful than beneficial. In these Days of rapid life we make a fetish of pre digested education Hunting out everywhere the Quick method. And too often the result is Sciolis. No Way has been perfected in spite of the Many claims to that effect to create real culture without real labor. Or. Edison s pictures would serve their highest purpose not As the Means of education themselves but to supplement the regular work now done in schools and colleges. It is interesting to note the comment of a widely known authority on education. Or. John Dewey on the Edison experiments. He is not so sure about their value As a permanent tool in education but he utilizes the care with which or. Edison s preliminary experiments have been conducted involving great outlay of Money time and labor to impress the Superior advantages for careful experimentation afforded by private Industry. Or. Dewey regrets that in the adoption of new methods in Public education there is not the same Opportunity for private tests before the ideas Are applied in a Broad Way that or. Edison employs in his Laboratory. _ mrs. Gustava Sabel George Johnson of Danville 111., and mrs. Arthur Johnson of Indianapolis were guests sunday of mrs. Sabel s Bister mrs. Martin Munson Pear Riverside. Visited Western Texas. Sim Sellars Rufus Day and James Frasch returned last monday morning from a week s trip to Texas where they were investigating the land and the farming conditions. They enjoyed the trip greatly and were very Well Imprest with the prospects and opportunities. The Section they visited was in the Western part of the great state where the school geographies a few years ago showed a vast Blank expanse labelled Llano Estacada or staked Plain. Today this great Plain is being rapidly settled new towns and cities Are springing up Here and there and the visitor sees thousands of acres of land under cultivation. Cotton Milo Maize Kaffir Corn peanuts and fruit thrive in spite of what the boys think Are very Slack methods of farming. There seemed to be plenty of water windmills dotted the landscape and there Are Many Small lakes scattered about the Plains. Near the new town of Ralls they saw a farm of 11,000 acres operated by one Man j. R. Ralls who is also a banker and the promoter of the town which bears his name. Cotton yields from one half to a whole Bale per acre and Sells around $80 a Bale Kaffir Corn yields a half to one and a half tons Worth $18.00, and Maize and Kaffir Corn for silage yields 700 to 900 bundles per acres and this is Worth from 3 to cents a bundle. Peanuts thrive and thresh out 80 to 100 bushels an acre and these Are marketed at 90 cents a Bushel. Altho neither of the three men Pur Chast any land they were Imprest with its opportunities for profitable investment. Taking everything into consideration they agree that they would rather live in the Wabash Valley and there is no danger of either of them emigrating soon. Fire limits for cities one of the first Steps being urged upon Indiana by the state fire marshal in his Effort to Cut Down fire is the creation of definite districts within which the nature of buildings is restricted. Permits to build or repair May Only be obtained when these restrictions Are complied with. Only i combustible Walls and roofs Are permitted and Heights and areas Are prescribed As Well As other provisions intended to Lessen the fire Hazard. Since such a Law requires a Thoro knowledge of the principles of fire prevention the fire marshal is arranging to co operate with each City planning to draft a fire limit ordinance. Recently the City Council at Kokomo under the supervision of the state fire marshal drafted an ordinance which has been reported upon favourably and which will soon become a Law. The Kokomo ordinance gives rules for the erection of buildings in such a Way that All danger to life from fire Are lessened. But next in importance to the adoption of proper fire limit ordinances according to the fire marshal is their strict enforcement. Quot one of the chief difficulties which the fire prevention movement encounters Quot said fire marshal Longley Quot is the non enforcement of Laws and ordinances. Most of our cities have some kind of a lire limit ordinance but in too Many instances not even the slightest regulations Are enforced. Many of the inspections and investigations which we make now would never have been necessary had the proper enforcement of the Laws been made when certain cities were granting permits for buildings. Quot in one Indiana City which we investigated probably the most flagrant violator of the Law was the City attorney. Of course the ordinance in that City was not enforced. Had it been the first Man to have been prosecuted would have been the City the state fire marshal and his deputies realize the impossibility of carefully inspecting every Community in Indiana. For this reason the co operation of the communities is being invited. It is the Hope of the fire marshal to so awaken each citizen to the need of immediate action that Laws and ordinances will be adopted in each Community which will protect its town property from fire. With the various cities and local districts looking after the details in fire prevention the state fire marshal s office can then give its attention to directing the work thru out the whole state and in making and executing new plans. Quot there is no question concerning the results of fire limit ordinances rigidly enforced Quot said the fire marshal. Quot in time a Large part of the losses suffered by our cities would be saved blazes once started could be held in smaller areas and the necessity of maintaining elaborate and expensive fire fighting apparatus greatly the meat we did t eat. Uncle Sam has now been on the Trail of bad meat for seven years. His inspectors during this time have condemned in round numbers one Hundred and fifty million pounds of meat or one half Pound for each consumer count ing infants. Had this bad meat been eaten the average proportion per capita would have been one ounce of bad meat every one Hundred Days and even such a Small Quantity might have made the eater miserable for the following Hundred Days if it did t finish him entirely then too he might have got his Pound and a half of bad meat All in one Day. Keep the bad meat Trail hot Uncle Sammy Jehu Hibbs left tuesday for Cleve land Ohio where he will superintend 360-a,Cre Stock farm belonging to John Ridenour of Williamsport until Spring. Or. Ridenour accompanied him but will remain Only a few Days. March 1st or. Ridenour s Nephew Tom John son will move from Williamsport the farm and take charge of it. Ordinance no. 258.
