folly peculiar to the bar room the "treat" "ays''

them in depositing in the "Bar'Keeperd Bank'"'
a like amount And here allow me to make a
moralizing digression and ask why we find thi
system of "standing treat" in our drinking sa
loon and no where, else,? if good there why is
it not good in other and all branches of bu.si.
ness ? but do we ever see a gentleman enter
one of our dry goods stores, and stepping to the
counter, turn to half a dozen or more of his
acquaintances, who may be present and ask
"what will you take ?'" though for sooth dirty
faces, torn shirts, .rimles3 hats and solely8 1
shoes plainly indicate what they should take ; I j
confess 1 have not vet seen an instance ot the
kind; and I very much fear, should such an
one occur, the would be donor would be very
likely to receive more kicks than thanks as no
loubt every one so questioned would feel him
self grossly insulted. But watch the same gen
tleman, halt an hour afterwards, enter a bar
room where are seated the same conr.pany.
whom he did not ask what they would take in
the dry" goods line, and how different his con-,
duct. He not only asks but should any one
through modesty'or for other reason refuse he
urges till the friend .consents And ,the same
men who would have thought it an insult to
have been asked what they would take, in one
case, would think it equally ah insult not to
be asked in the other, A little inconsistent it
seems to me. 1 " .
But to return. Where? Oh. I remember
my three or four friends ;and I had just, taken
our tenth or twelfth drink. Well, 1 have a
faint "recollection of going then to a saloon, or
of a saloon coming to me; for the life of me I
can't , tell which of eating two or three, oyster
stews with the usual accompaniments of crack
ers, pickles and so. forth of a. queer crooked
roadjTumlintrangely on-'bolh sides' of adobe
lduse.i. and ii; the middle of which I luckily,
at last, sfumbled upon, oVrather into rriy own
door, but not however till I had sadly pirted
with supper-rstews and whisky excepting
such portions of the latter article as had found
its way into"-my fcad and lega L ' ' '
I repeat, I don't.see why ! should not have
ilept soundly ; and I hear some of my friends
fter nearly the same experience almost every
day make the . same remark. -.But .theact is
contrary in 'my case, to all; rutes of what had
oiiffhtto havS ben',' for I did not sleep well if,
indeed, I slept at'all, of which, I am somewhat
doubtful ; or rather Ihould be were it .not for
Now, to dream I hold that one. must sleep,'
but how oftenllo we all have dreains, the iuci
dents of which are so vivid so naturally and
distinctly 'connected in a word, so ttndream
like, that wejJnre ever after in great doubt
whether the vision was really presented to our
physical or mental sight. Of such a nature

I thought that after tossing for hours on my'
bed I irt-ose, snd taking my hat, the only gar
ment of which I-'had divested myself, I started
forth to cool my -burning cheeks and brow in
the cool night air.
Note': 1 attribute the heat in my face to the
presence, as the doctors would say, of t e pre
vailing feverbf the country, the victims of
which, may be known by an intense lednes
'of the face, particularly in the vicinity of the
tip of the nose. 1' notice that almost every
body in town has 'it.'
Abliish of daylight was juat visible in the
east a? I- reached and tu: ned down a street
that Beemed the sam , and yet not the same,
through which I had, a few. hours before,
wound my -tortuous way among staggering
houses, in Search of my own. Some street com
missioner from' fairy land seemed to have
straightened the crocked highway into its
wonted channel and to have returned the
reelirte Ifo'u'f'es, how perfectly sober and steady,
to their -usual sites. With rav head cooled
by the morning- iiir, and my nerves stilled by
the quiet hour, 'I wandered on, us one will in
a dream, from street to street ; every now and
then stumbling against something soft an-3
yielding. For some time I took no not ce of
these interruptions, but at length they became
so frequent, and there seemed such a similarity
in the objects in my way, that I was induced to
stop and' examine a sbecimen. when'la1.!
poor Yorick" I found, to my surprise, that it
was the body of a poor dog who had launched
his last ''bark." "I it possible" thought 1
"that all the ebjects I have been so uncer
rrionioiiS'j kicking along my path- are the de
funct bodies of 'man's best friend.' " Alas' too
true. Ueatu naa oeen ousy very Dusy, in
truth, he must have ben, if he did it all alone
but I don't believe he did; I think he got

''Oh, ye bard hearted men" thought I "who
find is our 4a'b' meat, can ye have a con
science and siiil charge such .enormous prices
'liowever' I found myjelf musing as 1
passed along "perhaps I should not lay the
charge al their door,that suggested itself tome,
for I find that not only ut tln:ir doors but for
rods from them on either side not a body it to
be seen.'" This was a fact, that I found myself
wholly unable to account for, and I can't ac
count fwr it yet ; but then you see it is only in
dreams that such inconsistencies occur.
Hurrying on, as I thought, to find a spot
where' dead dogs were less and fresh air more
plentiful, I came in sight of the door of a friend

some one might see the sun rie from h-r bed
so I turned my 0tCp homeward, followincln
the wake of a generous hearted "Boy in blue'
under w!i,3h protecting arm wa? cuddled a
forlorn-looking cock, who had, rfo doubt, been
'left out in the cold" by 'its late cruel owner.
The kind hearted fellow wa. evidently tuking
the poor thing home to breakfast, or was ii'n
revereal of the old adage of the early bird nnd

' I was now passing the Arizoxan ofBcewhen
my curiosity prompted"me to look through thp
window where I saw the "devil" hard at work
in His shirtsleeve, and he had evidently been
then1 all night. Thi, then, tmght account for
ah 1 hud seen in my dream walk. The "devil'

As it wuo riowbro'a'd daylight the'devil'-
was likely te escape from his cage at hny mo
merit, I thought I hurried homeward as fast as
possible to eicape his baneful influence.
I reached my own door just' as the Sun's first
r.-ys arrived there and I threw my clothes on
a chair arid myself on the bed and fell into a
quiet slumber. Can oue dream of going to-

that of a little girl. By its side sat a woniati

At its head and feet were the remains of
half a dozen candles, now flaring brightly up
and anon dwindling away and going out, just
as the life of the young sleeper had done in
the early morning.
