Just a bit "frosty" here in our town this past weekend, but I love it! It's fall and sweatshirt weather. I was driving into Charles Town one day last week, noting the frosty-white fields and wishing my car would hurry and heat up, when I glanced over toward the Cam Tabb home and spotted "Spidey" the haybale spider - smoking! Well, not really, just steam surrounding him due to the coolness. I said to myself, "Time to bring out the old sweatshirts and long johns winter is right around the corner." Leetown Baptist Church Revival The Leetown Baptist Church will hold a revival on October 31 through November 3. Service time each night at 7 o'clock. Revival will begin with a fellowship supper on Sunday evening, October 31, at 5 p.m. Guest speaker will be Pastor Gary Kneable from Grace Re- formed Fellowship, Hagerstown, Md. Special music will be presented each evening featuring Summit Point Baptist Choir, Breann Dove, Michael Owens and Leetown United Methodist Church Choir and the Leetown Baptist Church Choirs.

Leetown Baptist is right in the heart of Leetown, just two doors down from the Leetown Market. Recipe I got hungry for gingerbread or some sort of spicy dessert, folks! I really don't like gingerbread ex- cept at this time of year and then just one piece or so will satisfy my taste and I won't crave it until this time next year. Here's a good spicy dessert for you to have ready for Halloween. Warm Spice Cake Three eggs, 1 1/2 cups sugar; 1/2 cup butter; one cup maple syrup; a pinch of salt; one tsp. soda; three level tsps. baking powder; one tsp. cloves; one tsp. allspice; one tsp cin- namon; 1/2 cup hot water; 1/2 cup apple butter (or one cup hot water and omit apple butter); three cups flour. Measure flour carefully before sifting. Beat eggs, sugar and but- ter. Mix dry ingredients and add alternately with water. Pour into greased, flour 9" x 13" pan and bake at 325 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes. Cool slightly in pan, then remove from pan and cool com- pletely. Ice with the following: Caramelscotch Frosting One cup brown sugar, packed; three Tbsp. shortening; two Tbsp. butter or margarine; 1/4 tsp. salt; 1/3 cup milk; 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted. Put brown sugar, short.ening, butter and salt in saucepan and cook over medium heat until mix- ture begins to bubble. Stir con- stantly. Add milk and mix well. Continue cooking over medium heat until mixture boils, stirring constantly. Boil vigorously one full minute. Remove from heat and cool to lukewarm. Add powdered sugar all at once and beat until creamy and thick enough to spread. If it becomes too thick, soften over hot water. Alex House - a Ms. ~2P' Story Even the title sounds spooky, doesn't it? It's our Halloween offer- ing for 1999. Come June 2000, we will have been playing the role of your FLC for ten years, folks. Now that, in it- self, is something to write about, don't you think? If you've been a longtime reader of our bit of fun here in the Spirit each week, you remember my dear friend and sec- ond mother, Mrs. Eunice Fritts. She's gone on to bigger and better things now, and we miss her, too. She loved to read the paper and did quite well at writing stories herself, none of which were pub- lished, except here in our column, for which she wrote most of them. Her stories were of remem- brances of her life here in Leetown as a youngster through her twi- light years also spent here in our town with her husband, Kenneth. I have always enjoyed "going back" for information about Leetown and sharing it with you through our weekly visits. My mother was not able to remember much of her Leetown experiences when I began "interviewing" but Mrs. Fritts remembered every de- tail aboUt everything she and her friends did here in our town in the early part of the century. I "useta" go to her for information, calling her "my expert source of informa- tion" and mentioned that in one of our columns, calling her "Ms. EX". Somehow, between the time I wrote it and it appeared in the Spirit, "Ms. EX" was changed to "Ms: XI'~ and that became her pen name inour column for the rest of her life. S~ was one of the most beautiful people that ever lived and I want to again share some of her stories with you, starting with her Halloween fun in Leetown (way) past! ALEX HOUSE By Mrs. Eunice A. Fritts (better known as Ms. X) "A path led from Leetown Pike past the John Bradley house to the Blue Spring, which was owned by the Baulch family and now owned by the U.S. Fisheries Center - and on to a small three-room house lo- cated on land near the Blue Spring. In the 1920s, the house had long been deserted, but there were lots of flowers in the yard, keeping it sort of "homey-looking". The young people from the vil- lage "useta" go on exploratory trips to the area. No one knew Alex's last name, so the place was just called "Alex House". One Halloween-time, the mem- bers of Leetown Methodist Church's Epworth League met at the home of Katherine and Marian Hirst (Prato Rio) for a party to be celebrated at "Alex House". Every- one was in costume for the party, including some very good looking man, dressed in a dark blue suit, white shirt, dark tie and gray felt hat, who said nothing and no one had a hint as to who he was. We were provided an oil lantern or flashlight, tin cup and spoon as we proceeded on our journey to destination "Alex House". As we walked to the place, guided by our lights, we found that someone had been there earlier and stacked wood for a campfire and hung an iron kettle on the tri- pod in which we would cook beef stew. While the stew was cooking, Marian Hirst told a spooky story about the "wicked witch". Just as she was getting to the frightening part of her story, an object fell out of a tree near us. Needless to say, we never heard the last of the story, for when that "thing" dropped, everyone was grabbing each other and screaming. One of the town pranksters, Robert Newton, had made a "dummy" out of a burlap sack stuffed with straw and had hung it in the tree. At the appointed time, he cut the rope that held his creepy creation in place and that's when the excitement began. When things quieted down, we took our tin cups to the kettle and were served the piping hot beef stew. Who was that "good looking man in the dark blue suit?" why, it was Mrs. Lydia (Grandmother Lydie) Blue! Mrs. Fritts added, "For those of you who have never seen a tin cup, it was flat on the bottom, straight up sides, with handles very much like coffee mugs of today, except larger. Every farm house had tin cups. One hung on pump and one was tied handle of the water jug farmers carried to the set in the shade to keep they worked. "Shade" was method of keeping the for there were no thermos bottles in those days. i We hope you enjoyed our story. Don't Forget Our thoughts and with those offon this is the season of that We also continue to schools in our thou prayers safety in the dropped by North Jel ementary last week"and everyone wearing a badge ' around the neck or clothing. I, too, was given to wear for the time I was It's good to see safety ing taken to help protect people. We hope everyone is your home and in your know if there are those our thoughts and prayers the folks regularly your list, too. Till Then have a great week, out and enjoy. Thought for the If people would listen tc selves more often, they'd Mrs. Wallace Welsh 876-6845 Scattered frost hit our area this past week. It played havoc on some flowers, but many were still bril- liant, especially the chrysanthe- mums. I have never seen so many beautiful ones in the yards. Fall is definitely here. Evergreen Enjoys Hayride The brisk wind put a damper on the annual bonfire for members, Cloverbuds, parents and friends of the Evergreen 4-H Club Sunday evening at Jefferson Orchards. The club enjoyed their refresh- ments inside. A dancer, football player, prin- cesses, G.I. Joe, and others were judged for costumes. All received prizes. The highlight of the evening was two hayrides. The full moon peeked out of the clouds for awhile to add to the chilliness of the evening. Even though they were bundled up in coats and blankets, the shivering, cold hands, and red noses showed up on their return to a cup of hot steaming chocolate. Dennis Smith drove the John Deere pulling the wagon. Have you ever imagined how a mummy felt (literally speaking)? One of the most fun games at the party was the wrapping of mem- bers with toilet paper. The teams of two were picked, one the mummy and one the wrapper. The object is to wrap without breaking the pa- per; if so, you had to start all over again. As their organizational leader, guess what? I was wrapped in fun and then bombarded with the paper all over the floor. Oh, what I go through for my club. Several members were stumped with a word scramble using Hal- loween terms, and intermittently, they enjoyed Halloween riddles. Another highlight to end the fun-filled evening was roasting marshmallows. Since we didn't have a bonfire outside, one teen leader, Lisa DeGrave, came up with an idea of using a small hiba- chi. what fun to try and not burn your fingers and mouth on a dark, crusted, gooey marshmallow. Pic- tures were taken throughout the evening. I can't wait until I see the one in my witch hat. Umm! Trick.or-Treat Folks, I am not sure when Kear- neysville will trick or treat. Our neighboring towns have set Friday, October 29, and Saturday, October 30. Halloween falls on Sunday this year. All I can tell you is, on Satur- day and Sunday, if you will be giv- ing out treats, please turn your porch light on. Practice safety - go in numbers, have parents or an older person ac- company you, watch for cars, and please check your treats before eat- ing. Remember that our youth is our future. Have fun! Homecoming Homecoming was observed Sunday at the Grace Reformed United Church of Christ. Guest speaker was Rev. Roger Burtner, who served the parish from 1980- 1982. He and his wife, Sylvia, re- side in Keedysville, Md. Burtner is the Conference Coordinator, Refu- gee Resettlement with the United Methodist Church Baltimore- Washington Conference. His mes- sage on this Homecoming Sunday was helping refugees get resettled. Of special interest was the Galusic family in Berkeley Springs, reset- tling from their native Bosnia. Within hours, the family of immi- grants literally dropped from the skies into a new nation, culture and language. Their nine-year-old son knew a little English, but the rest of the family spoke only Croatian and German. Burtner gave a happy report that the par- ents were now working and they were settled in their new home. This was his message on "why I want to help refugees get re- settled." The Burtners were also missionaries in Africa for several years. Grace Church had the op- portunity to learn of their experi- ences during the time he served as their pastor. Following the service, everyone enjoyed a covered dish dinner.' In the auditorium were displayed pic- tures, flyers, books and other lit- erature on the church as far back as the early 1900s. The church was built in known as the Grace Evangelical Church, with torium, :social hall, added in 1954. Yes, a day of reminiscing and ship.
