WHAT DREAMS ARE.
SIGNIFICATION OF VISIONS THAT ARE
. BEHELD IN SLEEP.
Scientist and Soothsayer Unsatisfactory
la Their Attempted EiplaamUona Soma
T tbe Interpretation Given by the Safe
of L-ons; Ago.
Scientists explain that dreams are
bat reflections of oar waking thoughts
and actions. We who dream know it is
not so. Wo know that sleep brings vis
ions not of places and things and people
we have Been, but of strange, weird im
ages and happenings that onr mortal
eyes never saw and meditations never
The Bible tells of the interpreting of
dreams, and ancient experts divined
according to principles now unknown.
Those wise seers believed in dreams as
foretellers of future events, of good and
evil to tbe dreamer, whose sleeping
hours were filled with visions of delight,
or mayhap with phantoms of horror.
The sage. Abracadabra, in his immor
tal treatise on the signification of
dreams, says among a host cf wise and
witty conclusions: "It is fortunate to
dream cf little pigs, but nnfortnnate to
Jreani of big bullocks." It may occur
to the feeble intellect groping for cause
and effect that this can bo explained by
the self evident fact that "littlo pigs"
are harmless, but "big bullocks" are
"If yon dream yon have lost a tooth,
you will soon lose a friend, " remains
prophetic. Indeed tbe loss of a molar or
an incisor is to bo deplored, and perad
veuture the first premonitory twinge of
an exposed nerve has caused the dream.
But how explain "If yon dream yonr
bouse is on fire, yon will soon have news
from a far country," and "to dream of
clear water is a sign of grief?"
Perhaps the modern system of inter
pretation may be summed up in the
terse aphorism that "dreams go by con
traries. " So if yon dream of receiving
money yon will likely lose it; if yon
dream of kisses, fond and sweet, you
have blows in stora "If yon dream of
the dead, you will hear from the liv
ing." It is nioro condncivo to comfort of
mind, on tho whole, to return to the
anciont sages. Abracadabra may again
be quoted as declaring that tho "most
fortcnato of nil dreams is to dream that
yon are np to yonr neck in mnd and
miro." But, again, "to dream that yon
stand naked in tho streets is a snro sign
of rronblo, distress and perplexity."
Not to bo wondered at sure, even in a
Let ns go back still farther and con
sult a much cider authority than Abra
cadabra the wise and learned Tyrosco
pbornns. Ho gives a 1 ng list of signifi
cations, embracing almost every known
tree and plant, vegetable, flowers and
fruits. To dream of a leafless tree is a
sign of great sorrow; of a tree without
branches, despair and snicide; the yew
and tho elder mean sickuess to the
yonng and death to the old.
"For a maiden to dream of stripping
the bark from any tree is a sign of loss
of character," declares tho hoary old
sage, for a married woman it means be
reavement. Indeed Tyroscophornus di
vides his significations according to the
sex and condition of tho dreamers. Thns
to a man the stripping of tho bark por
tends an increase of fortune. The lime
tree means a voyage across the ocean;
tho elder tree is anspicious and tho fir
tree mora so; to dream of the oak por
tends long lifo and prosperity fitting
is this, decidedly and the ash tree fore
tells a long journey.
Only limited by tho number of known
shrubs aro their significations. To
dream of dock leaves moans a present or
possibly only a visit from yonr country
relatives. Of artichokes we are told that
they signify favor from an unexpected
source. Sorrel means the approach of
calamity which will require all yonr
courage to face. Of tho sunflower, the
loved of tho aesthetic, a deep wonnd to
I f a fair inaiden dreams of daffodils,
she must, alas, mistrust her lovert He
will bear watching. A sad fate with
which to bnrden the innocent posy.
Heart's ease means heartache. Lilies,
oy; to dream of roses brings happy lovo
not nnmixed with sorrow. Tho fragrant,
modest violet, whose perfumed petals
give sweet odor without stint, if seen
and carriod in dreams, brings sorrow
and evil to the nnwedded, bnt the op
posite, joy and good, to tho married.
Water lilies appropriately portend dan
gers from the sea. Yellow flowers betoken
jealousy. Of fruits, pomegranate is th6
best. To dream of tb is rosy f rui t denotes
happy marriage to the single and peaco
between quarrelsome couples. Green
figs mean embarrassment, bnt dry ones
mean money to the poor and mirth to
the wealthy. Quinces indicate pleasant
company, and lemcustell of separation.
To dream of aloes in bloom betokens
a legacy. Without a blossom, long life.
The broom flower means an increase of
family, and the delicate anemone is a
sign that yon will socn fall in love or
be made love ta To dream of asparagns
in bnncbea, as one buys it from the
market stalls, is a sign of tears, but if
in your dream you see it growing it
means good fortune. Cauliflower is bet
ter to eat than to dream of. It signifies
when yon see it in yonr dreams that all
yonr friends will drop yon for no worse
reason than poverty.
There are more disagreeable signifi
cations to dreams than pleasant ones.
To dream of vermin is a sign of sick
ness. I havv found this true in my own
experience. To dream of serpents, false
friends are about yon. A falling rain
foretells tears and broken eggs qnar
reL Eggs unbroken denote good Inck
and prosperity. To dream of fruit of
any kind ont of season means anger
without reason, which is a rhyme at all
events. Emma L McLaganinSt Louis

to gallygaskins, were a combination

SAMBO'S NARROW ESCAPE.
Enumeration Waa Kot Complete
Enough to Convict Him.
It is not strango that the southern col
ored man has vagce and mistaken no
tions about property rights. He and his
ancestors wero for ages enslaved and
had no rights whatever, even to their
ow I'.tsoiih. Therefore all they could
gain was through treachery and deceit,
and it is only natural that these traits
bred by slavery remain as inherited char
acteristics, now that tho negro enjoys
the blessings of freedom. It may take
several generations before their habit of
stealing will bo unlearned, for even
when tho colored man becomes religions
his easily besetting sin will be most of
ten found in his not respecting tho prop
erty rights of others. And thereby hangs

Sambo looked grieved. "No, sah !"
I r.m very glad to hear this good re
port," continued the class leader, "and
I trust yon will continue to live an hon

After chnrch Sambo hurried home
with his wife, who liad overheard the
catechizing. When they were fairly ont
of everybody's hearing, he drew a long
breath of relief and turned a self ap
proving glance to his better half.
"Golly," he said in a half cautious
whisper, "ef ho'd er said ducks I'd be'n

The Evening Xewapaper.
But the spirit which governs the
newspaper world has conquered
everything. It sweeps away obsta
cles which a former generation would
have regarded as insurmountable.
Its quickness is the marvel of the
age. Thns it has come about in all
our great American cities that the
evening paper is the record of the
day and its events, from far and
near, great and small, while the
morning paper is necessarily bnt the
record of yesterday. The fact is
now generally recognized, though
quite reluctantly and for obvious
reasons, by many of those especially
concerned. The evening newspaper
comes to the counting room, tbe
home, and the club fresh as the
breezes which seem to waft from
other lands the messages which it
contains. The morning newspaper
emerges from tbe darkness, having
been prepared while the millions to
whom it specially appeals for sap
port have been at rest.
This striking change in the jour
nalistic arena is one in accordance
with he methods' of the time, and
the advancement thns noted must
continue. Revolutions of this kind
never go backward. The eveaing
newspaper must continue to increase
in popularity, influence and useful
ness as a news-gatherer. Philadel
In his youth Nero was remarkably
handsome, bnt early in mauhood his
habits of dissipation made him exceed

were so protuberant as to be almost a
deformity, and he waa nearsighted, so

acquaintance across the street.
