Halloween in Sanborn
was observed to a certain extent. Whether or not the nocturnal visitors were of this world or the other, the following morning C. A. Van Wormer's chimney was found stuffed full of rubbish; wagon boxes and buggies were found turned upside down on roofs around town, and numerous other freaks of these midnight visitors denoted that Halloween was not forgotten in Sanborn at least.
