Saved by a Drean.
A farmer living at Lapford, Eng
land. dreamed thrice in succession
that be saw a pit dug in one of his
fields and some of his -property cast
into it. At the third time of dream
ing he got up, dressed and went out.
He beard the thud of a spade and
caught sight of a man digging by Ian
tern light. The digger fled at his ap
proach. It was a grave upon which
he had been at 'work By its brink
lay a huge knife. On his way back
the farmer met one of his maidserv
ants. She had had a iuarrel with the
man to whom she had been engaged.
she said, but- he had prevailed upon
her to meet him for the last time at
2. o'clock that morning, when he bad
something to show her. "This Is
what te had to show you." said the
farmer. leading her to the. grave.
The Sinews of War.
On the occasion of the annual en
campment, of a. western militia one of
the soldiers, a clerk who lived' wel at
home, was experiencing much diffli
culty, in disposing of. his .rations.. A
fellow sufferer near by was watching
with no little amusement the first sol
dier's. attempts to Fletcherize a piece
of meat "Any trouble, Tom?" asked
the second soldier sarcastically.
"None in' particular," was, the re
sponse.- Then after a sullen survey of
the bit of beif he held in his faid the
amateur fighter observed:.
