|This card is dated 1917, and shows a traditional candle-wax method of divination. The poem reads: "Let the candle grease drip and drop,/Into the water while it's hot; And the floating grease will form the name/Of your partner in the marriage game./Cupid's disguised as a witch Hallowe'en;/In all the games played his hand can be seen.".
||This intriguing photo postcard has "Halloween" written on the front, and the pencil notation "East Iowa" on the rear; it's likely that the buggies (and bathtub!) are the aftermath of a night of Halloween pranking, with the juvenile pranksters seated atop their spoils.
