" There teas a moral in ihat dream.''

It seemed to nsc as tucugh 1 had

self in the centre of a gay crowd.
The first sensation I experienced was
that of beintr borne alon with a pecu

and found I was in a loi?pr tnua oi

many miles in leagta. It was com

The peculiar gentle motion of the earn
interested me. There wns r.o grating,
such as we hear on a rutircad. Thus,
I say, interested me. I look;'-! over
