    The ""Book of Magical Charms,"" which dates to the 1600s, arrived at the Newberry Library in 1988, bundled with some old medical texts. The book wasnt signed, and nobody knew who had written it. For years it existed as a curiosity, a mysterious antique without authorship. They posted its 117 pages online this spring for help deciphering its contents. Some of its charms: Doth ye a toothache? Take a tooth out of a deadmans skull and hange the same about the parties neck ... Lost ye voice? Dip 5 Sage leaves in mustard, lay them under his tong, closing his mouth agayn. This will cause him to speake ... (Only do this, the spell warns, if the ailing soul is still alive.) Since May, the book has been read on the librarys website more than 300,000 times and every page was transcribed and translated and many of the most active translators have been self-identified witches and warlocks.

    Teresa Corrales is chased by her son, Victor Romero, 14, who dressed as a Tyrannosaurus rex for Halloween.

    The city of Chicago collects water from Lake Michigan in two cribs (including the one pictured here) that are about 2 1/2 miles from shore. From the cribs, it flows through underground tunnels to a pair of purification plants before it''s pumped throughout the city. According to a Chicago Tribune analysis, even though residents in various cities and counties all get their water from the same source, they don''t all pay the same monthly price. People in the poorest communities often pay more for this basic life necessity than those in the wealthiest. And the financial pain falls disproportionately on majority-African-American communities, where residents median water bill is 20 percent higher for the same amount of water than that of residents in predominantly white communities.
