THE LAND OF DREAMS.
The twilight deepens, the shadows creep.
The moonlight quivers in silver beams.
And silent wo step In the boat of sleep, .
And drift to the shadowy land of dreams. '.
Oh, mystic land where the dead return.
And warm lips clintr in the deathless kiss
And the years are not, and the weary learn .
That anguish dies in the arms of bliss.
Afar in that holy, unknown land.
Ambition gathers the flowers of fame;
And fortune reaches her golden wand.
And pare and white is the soul of shame.
The shackles fall from the prisoner there.
The peasant sits on the throne a king;
The blind eyes open to all that's fair.
And deaf ears hear, and the dumb lips 6ing.
Dreams! Who can tell what messengers
Around ns all in the hush of night;
When the form lies still as the soulless clay.
And we follow ourselves through love and
And who shall say but the land of dreams
Is the land of the living, after all;
And daily life, with its scars and seams.
Is only a dream when the shadows falL
Martha Bonner in Boston Globe.
It la often amusing to see the bewilder
ment with which a city bred Xew Ens
lander listens to the dialect of his native
soil, a dialect which is as characteristic,
strongly marked and persistent as that of
any part of the country. That anybody
who claims to lie a native of Yankeeland
should fail to xinderstand a dialect which
has become historic in its rugged simplic
ity and homely oppressiveness, seems al
most inconceivable; yet there are thou
sands of city bred persons, descendants of
the old native stock, in all the large com
munities of New England, who would
hardly be more puzzled by a sentence out
of the Koran than by some of the dialect
expressions which are current in the rural
sections of their own states.
Right here in Massachusetts, within
fifty miles of the gilded statehouse dome,
are communities whose everyday lan
guage, larded as it is with Yankeeisma
which date back well nigh a century, would
be in lame part utterly unintelligible even
to a Harvard or lioston university philolo
gist. Journal of Education.
A Quaker's Wedding.
Iiride and bridegroom took their seats in
perfect silence, which reigned until one
present offered up prayer. Again stillness
prevailed for some moments, and the bride
groom rose saying, "Friends, here in the
fear of the Iord, ami in the divine pres
ence, I take this, my friend, Edith Mary
llanbttry Aifirs, to lie my wife, promising,
in the fear of the Ixrd, ami with the divine
assistance, to lie to her a faithful and lov
The bride's formula was in similar words,
and a gorgeously emblazoned and illumi
nated parchment, setting forth the contract
of marriage, was then signed by both and
attested by several witnesses from both
families. Two friends gave short ad
dresses from Scriptural texts, another
prayer followed and, when the civil regis
ter had been duly filled up, the ceremony
was at &a end. Exchange.
Trick f Memory.
It is not nnusual to find a memory reten
tive on some subjects and extremely de
fective on others. A lady of the writer's
acquaintance could tell the number of
stairs contained in each flight inthehouses
in which sho hail lived ami the various
residences she visited, yet it seemed almost
impossible for her to retain for any length
of time a remembrance of things more im
portant. An net or once performing in a play which
had had a long run all at once forgot, en
tirely the speech he was to make. When
he got behind the scenes he said:
'How could I lie expected to rememlwr
it forever? Have I not repeated it every
night for the last 00 nights?" Ixndon
Puritanical Treatment of Uojk.
In Miss Ern ie's book. "The Sabbath in
Puritan Xew England," a story is told of
Dr. Dakin hearing a noise while he was
praying in a churc h at (Juiric-y. The min
ister opened his eyes to discover the cause,
and saw a red haired boy clutching the
railing on the front edge of the gallery,
while n venerable deacon clutched the boy.
At last t lie balustrade gave way and boy
and deacon fell with a crash. The deacon
then led the boy out of the meeting house,
and swishing sounds, accompanied by
wails, were soon heard from the region of
the horse shed.
The Waiter In a Fug.
"The practice of smoking is so prevalent
in Holland," once remarked a traveler,
"that when you are in an alehouse where
everybody smokes you cannot possibly
recognize the person sitting next to you."
"Then how does the waiter manage to
distinguish the customers?"
"Oh, easily enough. He always carries
a pair of bellows about with him to blow
away the smoke until he discovers the per
son who summoned him." Hire de l'Uni
A Oentle Hint.
X. was not overscrupulous about his
personal appearance. One da- in the studio
of a celebrated painter he was fumbling in
"What are you looking for?" inquired
the witty artist.
"A pencil. I only wanted to jot down a
word or two on my shirt cuff."
"See, here is a bit of chalk," was the
amiable rejoinder. Supplement Illustre.
A Successful Test.
At a small town in Kent a gentleman
employed n carpenter to put up a partition,
and had it filled with sawdust to deaden
the sound. When it was completed the
gentleman called from one Bide to the
carpenter on the other:
"Smith, can you hear me?"
Smith immediately answered "So, bit."
About 450 B. C. the Indians first intro

Among the thousands of testimonials
of cures by Dr. Miles' New Heart Cure,
