Halloween Stories

There are several ways of telling ghastly stories on HALLOWEEN. Have a large ball of different coloured yarn handy and before the midnight hour, turn out the lights, and ask all the players to sit in a circle. The host, holding the ball of yarn, begins by telling some weird story, unwinding the yarn as she proceeds, until she comes to a different colour, and then she tosses the ball to someone in the circle, and that one must proceed with the story until she comes to a different colour. It is then tossed to another, and so on, until the ball is unwound and the story ended. Another way, more ghastly still, is to give each guest a saucer in which is a handful of salt and some alcohol. Each one in turn lights the contents of the saucer and tells some ghost story, continuing until all the alcohol is burned, and no longer. The stories may be lively or sad.

Thought Reading

This is a very good game, which always causes considerable amusement, and if skillfully carried out will very successfully mystify the whole company.

It is necessary that the player who is to take the part of thought reader should have a confederate, and the game is then played as follows:

The thought reader, having arranged that the confederate should write a certain word, commences by asking four members of the company to write each a word upon a piece of paper, fold it up in such a manner that it cannot be seen, and then to pass it on to him. The confederate, of course, volunteers to make one of the four, and writes the word previously agreed upon, which is, we will suppose, Ohio.

The thought reader places the slips of paper between his fingers, taking care to put the paper of his confederate between the third and little finger; he then takes the folded paper from between his thumb and first finger and rubs it, folded as it is, over his forehead, at each rub mentioning a letter, as O, rub, H, rub, I O, after which he calls out that some lady or gentleman has written Ohio. I did, replies the confederate.

The thought reader then opens the paper, looks at it, and slips it into his pocket; he has, however, looked at one of the other papers.

Consequently he is now in a position to spell another word, which he proceeds to do in the same manner, and thus the game goes on until all the papers have been read.
