MARK TWAIN'S DEAM,
It Was So Vivid He Thought It
Was Real After He Awoke.
THEN CAME THE SAD SEQUEL.
The Event Foreshadowed In the Sinqu
lar Vision Came to Pass With Pain
ful Exactitude On!y a Few Weeks
After In a Most Distressing Manner.
One morning when I awoke I had
been dreaming, and the dream was so
vivid, so like reality, that it deceived
me, and I thought it was real. In the
dream I had seen Henry (Mr. Clemens'
younger brother) a corpse. He lay in
a metallic burial case. He was dressed
in a suit of my clothing, and on his
breast lay a great bouquet of flowers,
mainly white roses, with a red rose in
the center. The casket stood upon a.
coule of chairs. I dressed and moved
toward the door, thinking I would go
in there and look at it, but I changed
my mind. I thought I could not yet
bear to meet my mother. I thought I
would wait awhile and make some
preparation for that ordeal.
The house was in Locust street, a
little above Thirteenth, and I walked
to Fourteenth and to the middle of the
block beyond before it suddenly flash
ed upon me that there was nothing
real about this-it was only a dream.
1 can still feel something of the grate
ful upheaval of joy of that moment,
and I can also still feel the remnant
of doubt, the suspicion that maybe it
was real, after all. I returned to the
house almost op a run, flew up the
stairs two or three steps at a jump
and rushed into that sitting room and
was made glad again, for there was no
We made the usual eventless trip to
New Orleans-no, it was not eventless,
for it was on the way down that I had
the fight with Mr. Brown which re
sulted in his requiring that I be left
ashore at New Orleans In New Or
leans I always had a job. It was my
privilege. to watch tlie- freight piles
from 7 in the evening until 7 in the
morning and get $3 for it It was a
three night job and occurred every
thirty-five days. Henry always joined
my watch about 9 in the evening.
when his own duties were ended, and
we often walked my rounds and chat
ted together until midnight
This time we were to part, and so
the night before the boat sailed I gave
Henry some advice. I .said: "In case
of disaster to the boat don't lose your
head. Leave that unwisdom to the
p~ssengers; they are competent; they'll
attend to it- But you rush for the hur
ricane deck and astern to one of the
lifeboats lashed aft the wheel house
and obey the mate's orders. Thus you
will be useful. When the boat is
launched give such help as you can
in getting the women and children into
it and be sure you don't try to get into
it yourself. It is summer weather, the
river is only a mile wide. as a rule.
and you can swim that without any
Two or three days afterward the
boat's aboilers exploded at ship island,
below Memphis, early one morning,
and what happened afterward I have
already told in "Old;Times on the Mis
sissippi" As relafted there, I followed
the Pennsylvania about a day later on
another boat, and we began to get
news of the diasnter at every port we
touched, and so by the time we reach
ed .\emphis we knew all about it
I found Henry stretched uponl a mat
tress on the floor of ,agreat building
along with thirty or forty' other scald
ed and wounded persons and ws
promptly informed by some indiscreet
person that he had inhaled steam, that
his body was badly scalded and that
he would live but a little while; also
I was told that the physicians and
nurses were giving their whole attenl
-tion to persons who had a chance of
being saved. They were short handed
in the matter of physicians and nurses.
and Henry and such others as were
considered to be fatally; hurt were re
e elving-only such attefition as could
be spared from time to time from the
more urgent cases. -
But Dr. Peyton, a fine and large
hearted old <physician of great repu
tation in the community, gave me his
sympathy and took vigorous hold of
the case, and in about a week he had
brought Henry around. Dr-. Peyton
never committeA himself with prog
*nostications which might not mater!
alze, but at 11 o'clock one night he
told me that Henry was out of danger
and would get wvell. Then he said:
"At midnight these poor fellows lying
here and there all over this place will
begin to mourn and mutter and lament
and make outcries, and if this commo
:ton should disturb Henry it will be
bad for hifn. Therefore ask the physi
sian on watch -to give him an eighth
of a grain of morphine, but this is not
to be done unless Henry shall show
signs that he is' being disturbed."
Oh, well, never mind the rest of it
The physicians on watch were young
fellows, hardly out of the medical col
lege, and they made a mistake. They
bad no way of measuring the eighth of
a grain of morphine, so they guessed at
it and gave him a vast quantity heap
ed onxthe end of a knife blade, and the
fatal effects were soon apparent I
thik he died about dawn. I don't re
member as to that He was carried
to the dead room, and I went away for
awhile to a citizen's house and slept
off some of my accumulated fatigue,
and meantime something was happen
The coffins provided for the dead
were of unpainted white pine, but in
this instance some of the ladies of
Memphis had made up a fund of $60
and bought a metallic, case, and when
I came backend entered the dead room
Henry lay in that open case, and he
was dressed in a suit gf my clothing.
He had borrowed it without my knowl
edge during our last sojourn in. St
Louis, an~d I recognized instantly that
my dream of several weeks before was
here exsactly reproduced, so .far as
these details went, and I think I
missed one detail, but that one was im
mediately supplied, for fust then an

SLEEP A PUZZLE
The Mystery involving "Tired Nature's
Although the phenomenon has been
observed since man has existed, the
true nature of sleep and what causes
it are practically mysteries today. All
recognize the necessity of sleep and
know that it is the sovereign remedy
for fatigue--tired nature's sweet re
This fact has led to the theory that
sleep is induced by the poisons which
are known to be formed and passed
into the blood stream during wearying
exercise of mind or body. The theory
Is that these poisons benumb the nerve
center controlling the circulation in the
brain, with a consequent reduction in
the blood supply. This "anaemia" of
the brain produces unconsciousness, or
sleep, during which the activities of
body and mind are repressed, the for
mation of "fatigue poisons" is arrested.
and those already formed and circulat
ing in the blood are eliminated.
When thi has taken place the puri
fied blood again nourishes and stimu
lates the circulation center, .an In
creased volume of blood flows to the
brain. and the subject awakes, renew
ed in spirit and flesh and ready for the
labors of the day.
This explanation is only a theoretical
one, but it is plausible. Whatever may
produce it and whether it is a cause or
an accompaniment, we know that a
lessened blood supply In the brain is
associated with healthy sleep and- that
.cerebral excitement and congestion
must be overcome before normal sleep
can take place.
The relation of the circulation to
sleep is seen in the alternate drowsi
ness and insomnia of the very aged.
While sitting up they are drowsy and
cannot keep their eyes open. but the
minute they lie down the power to
sleep forsakes then. This is probably
due to the fact that the arteries have
lost their tone. While the subject sits
up the blood sinks away 'from the
brain because the weakened heart is
unable to overcome the pull of gragity,
but when he lies down the blood tric
kles into the vessels of the brain, and
the smaller arteries are passively dl-,
latdd by its pressure. Of course the
process is not quite so purely mechan
Ical as this, for no one could live with
such flabby arteries, but the force of
gravity does act in a measure.
The treatment of this form of in
somnia of the aged is not in the giving
of hypnotics, but of something that
will tone up the blood vessels, such as
a cup of hot beef tea, of not too strong
tea or even of weak coffee-a paradox,
since these things are usually supposed
to be inimical to sleep.-Youth's Com

SAVED BY SILENA.
A Buffalo Hunt and an Indian Inter
ruption on the Plains.
Two soldiers who belonged to a body
of troops crossing the western plains
in 185' started out to capture a buffalo.
A herd had been seen about a mile
distant. Their horsgs were in good con
dition. and, says the author of "Five
Years a Dragoon," they had every rea
son to anticipate good sport.
They approached the herd at a walk
and were within easy pistol shot be
fore the buffaloes saw them. Then one
of them, named Peel, went to the west,
the other to the- east. Peel's compan
ion had dropped his first buffalo when
the voice of Peel rang out, "'Get on
No time wah lost, for, looking east,
he pointed to fifty or more Indians in
a half circle half a mile away, their
]eft,wing so far advanced that retreat
to camp was cut off.
Consultation was brief. Peel led the
way dowii the hill and circled round a
thicket, carefully selecting the firm
buffalo grass sod, so as to leave no
trail. and drew into cover .not twenty
yards from where some of the Indians
were sure to come down.
There they sat' on their horses, pis
tols in hand. They had no future
plans; they might have to tight death
under that bluff; they would do what
ever circimstances seemed to dictate.
They had not long to wait. The In
dians came rattling down the rock
trails leading into the bottom, sending
out their bloodcurdling warwhoop at
every jump. They seemed to think
that the fleeing men would try to es
cape toward camp and be enveloped in
the circle; did not think that they
would do anything but run for their
lives, which wvould be sure death. One
brawny brave drew rein at the foot of
'the trail where the men had come
down, raised himself in the stirrups
and looked sharply toward them.
Peel's companion, believing they were
discovered, raised his pistol to shoot.
but Peel quietly reached over and,
placing his hand on his comrade's arm,
gently pressed it down. -
In a moment the Indian was off to
the west, showing by his actions that
e had not seen them.
The way now seemed clear, and they
quietly walked their horses up where
they had gone down a few moments
before, turned south and gently trotted
back toward camp. No fresh meat
cheered the camp that night, but they
had a new adventure to talk over.

An incident That Illustrates the
Shrewdness of Ben Butler.
A number of years ago General Ben
jamin F. Butler was a guest of friends
in Brooklyn. During his visit he noted
the rule of the street railway com
panies compelling conductors to regis
ter fares as soon as passengers entered
the cars and before the fares were tc
tually collected. Two or three years
afterward be represented the plaintiff
in a damage suit for $15,000 in which a
Brooklyn street railway company was
the defendant. The principal witness
for the company was the conductor of
the car on which the accident occur
red, and his testimony was so strong
as to make things look bad for Butler's
client But Butler recalled the unusual
rule he had remarked years before, and
on cross examination he said:
"Your company requires you to ring
up fares as-soon as passengers enter
the car, doesn't it?"
"Suppose a passenger boards your
car and then finds be is on the wrong
line. Do you state that fact to your
superiors, and do they make allowance
on your returns for that fare?"
"No. I lose the nickel."
"Do you mean to say the company
won't take your word for 5 cents?"
"No, they won't."
"Yet," said the shrewd veteran, turn
ing to the jury, "the-company asks you
to take this conductor's word for $15.
Butler's client received a verdict.
HOW TO REPEL A DOG.
Letter Carrier Had a Remedy For
"No one comes in contact with all

"Take it outside the business districts
and every other family has a dog.
Many of them I pay no attention to,
but about one out of five aches to get
his teeth into my legs at first sight.
It is a part of my duty to teach such
curs a lifelong lesson."
"Do you kick them?" was asked.
"That would be foolish. I carry here
in my side pocket about a quarter of a

Machinery That Was Used In Building
.the Pyramids. .
Hoisting machines were used in both
Assyria- and Egypt 6,000 or more years
ago. in order to hoist the great
stones of the pyramids some form of
derrick was employed. Probably the
frst construction was that which is
now known to mechanics as the shear
legs. This is made of two great tim
bers tied together in the form of a
capital A, the two ends resting on the
ground and a rope being run over and
attached at the top.
With one of these the pryamnid build
ers could have raised large stones step
by step, which was dloubtless their
method. We can imagine we see the
great A frame leaning over an incline
of perhaps fifty degrees with a block
of stone tied on. Then a great crowd
of men get hold of the rope on the
opposite side, perhaps assisted by some
draft oxen, and all strain and pull until
the A frame stands erect and the stone
is swung up into the air, where it can
be pushed into the desired place.
Such a contrivance could be used to
lift stones six or eight feet, which was
sufficient for the construction of the
first pyramid. Doubtless better hoist
ing devices were constructed as more
pyramids were built-Circle Magazine.
