While the dictionary definition of Halloween is rather different than themodern small boys interpretation of it would indicate, yet we say with all earnest-ness, give the boys a good time occasionally, and why not on Halloween? Wi merry songs, and friendly crack,I wat they did na weary;And unco tales, an funnie jokes,Their sports were cheap and cheary. —Bobbie Burns. Boys will be far less apt to carry off the clothes-posts, unhinge the gates, andmake night hideous, if you give them a party in keeping with the occasion—aparty where tin horns form the first course at the dinner-table—where coloredpaper napkins, folded to represent the jack-be-nimble and jack-be-quicks,toads, monkeys, and parrots; where paper caps adorn the head andwhere jack-lanterns adorn the room. Such an evening makes glad even the heartof Aunt Jemima and Uncle Ben. And so, why not the boys?
