Apple seeds act as charms on Hallowe'en. Stick one on each eyelid and

name one "Home" and the other "Travel." If seed named travel stays on

longer, you will go on a journey before year expires. If "Home" clings

better, you will remain home. Again, take all the apple seeds, place

them on back of outspread left hand and with loosely clenched right

hand strike palm of left. This will cause some, if not all, of seeds

to fall. Those left on hand show number of letters you will receive

the coming fortnight. Should all seeds drop, you must wait patiently

for your mail.

Put twelve apple seeds carefully one side while you cut twelve slips

of blank paper exactly alike, and on one side of each write name of

friend. Turn them all over with blanks uppermost and mix them so that

you will not know which is which; then, holding seeds in your left

hand; repeat:

"One I love,

Two I love,

Three I love I say;

Four I love with all my heart

Five I cast away.

Six he loves,

Seven she loves,

Eight they both love;

Nine he comes,

Ten he tarries,

Eleven he courts and

Twelve he marries."

Stop at each line to place a seed on a paper, and turn slip over to

discover name of one you love or cast away. Continue matching apple

seeds with papers as you count, until all twelve seeds and twelve

papers are used.
