They Were Introduced to the Skeleton

"Last Saturday night according to the usual custom the seniors entertained the juniors at a Hallowe'en party. The juniors were taken one by one, with two sheeted spectres for guides, down to the door to Hades. They were then ushered into the presence of his infernal majesty and received their condemnation. With trembling the juniors passed to the "ghost room'' where they were introduced to the skeleton and received an electric shock from a concealed battery." - from "Normal Notes," Stevens Point Daily Journal (Nov. 7, 1903).
