Miss Barrier Entertains at Mt. Pleasant

Mt. Pleasant, Oct. 31. – Halloween is not forgotten. At the invitation of Miss Anna Belle Barrier, quite a large number of young people gathered at her home Saturday evening for the purpose of observing Halloween. The early part of the evening was filled with a mingling of weird ghost stories and the merry voices of players as they frantically yelled, “Robber,” “Thief,” “Burglar,” etc., in “Sherlock Holmes.” And as the wee small hours began to draw near a professional fortune teller was produced, and today a score of young ladies are rejoicing in the fact that they know precisely whom they are going to wed. “Brides and grooms” were numerous and “Dolly Vardens” not a few but as to where the “Honeymoons are to be spent,” the prophet ventured not a word.
