THE DREAJ
J am tired of planning and toiling
In the crowded hives of men;
Heart-weary of building and spoiling,
And spoiling and budding again; y
!An<l I long for the dear old river,
Where 1 dreamed my youth away;
For a dreamer lives forever,
And u toiler dies in a day. f
I ant sick of the showy seeming
Of the life that if naif a lie;
Of the faces lined with scheming
In the throng that hurries by;
From the sleepless thought's endeavor
1 would go where the children play;
For u dreamer lives forever,

UK local train, which had
rm^ K keen speeding out of town
? I O at the rate of twelve miles
^ K an hour, came suddenly to
a standstill with a violent
recoil at a level crossing in a country
lane, and Reynolds, shaken ont of his
reverie, opened the window, quite prepared
for an accident.
But us the view from the window
.revealed only an impassive stretch of
green he settled back to consider a

She "was u friend and neighbor of
the Potters. There was a fair chance
that she might be seen at their houso,
since an invitation to see her at her
own home had not boon forthcoming.
That ten minutes' till' at the seaside
at Easter where they had met bad not
in the least detracted from her charm,
though it had entirely demolished his
welcome, and lie would do much to be
near her for a week?for that lie coukl
endure the Potters.
A moment later the little guard cniue

I beg pardon, mister," he said, lowering
liis voice to a whisper, "but you
have a bag there which looks us if ii
might have a musical instrument iu
it."
"Why, yes," the young fellow answered
in astonishment. "My banjo."
"A banjo. That's lucky. What
tunes can you playV Can you play
'ltule, KritauniaY'"
"(ireat Scott! Why, yes, I think so.
But what in the name of patience "

lteynolds caught up his banjo east;
?nd hurried after the nUicial, wonder
Ing, as lio went, which of theui had
gone insane, and whether the attack
would prove to 1k> a permanent softening
of the brain or merely a temporary
aberration.
A number of passengers had left the
train. They were gathering en masse
aronnd the portion of the level crossing
whielt intersected the lane.
"Sow, then, here eomt < Orpehus and
his lady!" cried a voice in the crowd.
For a moment the young man stand
about him with ever increasing fears
for bis own mental condition. Little
by little a light broke in upon his
brain.
A few yards only of line lay between
the engine and the level cross track.
At the crossing stood the obstruction
in full view. II was a small, antiquated
pony phaeton, drawn by?or, rather,
attached to -a rotund .. bite mare.
The? animal \v;is neither standing in
the usual and approved attitude <>f her
kind, nor prostrate, as will sometimes
happen by accident. She was: sitting
upon her flossy haunches, a calm,
almost blase, expression in her browngreen
eyes.
The carriage was occupied by two
women. One of them, a stout, elderly,
maiden-aunt-locking person was engaged
in making voluhie explanations
to a delighted crowd. The other, a
girl in white, who leaned back among
1hr? cushions and laughed, in evident
enjoyment of the situation.
At the sight of the gir r .olds
drew back, with a little cry 1 i "
jshment, u his breath. Tin
ran t'orwa lifting his hat.
"wt.v m '

Tho pleasure which exuded from the
young man's face was not reflected ii.
.hat of tho girl's.
"ITow do yon do, Mr. Reynolds!" she
saiil. "I'<1 no idea you wore in this
part of the country. No, so far as I
am concerned you can bo of no assistance.
I think. If tho train people
want to try any exporirpents, of course,
ihoy are welcome to do It for tho sake
of getting ?ho train in motion. Aunt
Miily," sho added, turning to her companion,
"yon have he.v.d mo speak of
Mr. Reynolds? My aunt, Miss Blithe
?Mr. Reynolds."
Miss Miily grasped his hand with :i
warmth which was in striking contrast
<o the chilly demeanor of )icr
nloco.
"So j?lad to make your acquaintance,

There is nothing true in the city
But the patient lives of the poor.
Oh, the little hands too skillful.
And the child-rnind choked with weeds!
Oh, the daughter'* heart grow.- wilful,
And the father's heart that bleeds!
No. no! from the street's rude bustle,
From the trophies of mart and stage,

For a dreamer lives forever,

having this way on a railway, or 1
should have been afraid to drive her.
You see, Eliza has not sat down for
years now, and we thought slio'd quite
forgotten it. She is an old circus horse
as you may imagine, though I'd no
idea of that when 1 bought her. It
isn't Eliza's fault, really. She thinks
she's doing perfectly right, you know.
They taught her to sit down at the
circus, and not got up till she heard
tho 'Kule, Britanniaand she never
will get up until she hears it!"
"Lady," cried tho guard, elbowing
up, "we are ten minutes late now."
"Ten minutes late? IIow sorry I am.
It is most unfortunate tlmt Kli/.a
should relapse just now, when she iias
not sat down in years. It's .just like
her, uenunuhering about sitting down
this .morning when I am 011 my way
to the station to take the train to Loudon
to see my old friend Amelia Lowes,
intending to lot my nioce drive the
phaeton homo. Hut now I shall bo
afraid to lot Harlmra return alone, and
Amelia leaves London for Liverpool at

see her, as I may never see her again
for years."

to the station," Heynolds suggested:
"I am en route for tho Pollers. It
would give use great pleasure to see
your niece safely homo."
"There is no nenl in the world of
anyone accompanying me!" st'id the
young lady with great decision. "Eliza
would not hurt a I'y. I really prefer
driving alone."
"That is like you, Barbara. You are
always j>o brave," cried .Miss Milly.
"Hut remember, love, that I am older
and more nervous and since Mr. Reynolds
.so kindly offers I accept for you,
Barbara, and I insist on you availing
yourself of his kindness."
"Yoit are perfectly right, Miss Blithe.
It would not be safe, to say the least,
for Miss l'err.v to attempt to return
home alone, and far from inconveniencing
me. it would be a gro;'t pleasure,"
urged the young man.
lf>> seated himself upon a fallen tree
trunu :iuil slipped the cover from his
banjo, keeping his eyes lixed upon a
portion of 1I10 landscape where it was
impossible* for them to encounter tLie
eyes of .Miss Milly's nice".
A mnmrnt later a particularly vivacious
"Jiule, Uritannla," entered the
somnolent eouniry atmosphere. Something
in the exultant, strains of th
melody caused Miss llarhara to gatlur
her pretty brows.
Kii/.a, howev r, was unfeignedly
( leased. At the lll'st notes her ea-rs
twitched, assuming an upright attitude
suggestive of earnest attention.
At "I'.ritons, never, never," she turned

what appeared to 1 ?o unqualified approval.
Slowly gathering Jier for< - >s
together, she rose in a dignitled manner
nt tlie first chorus, and drew the phaetion
from the track.
The spectator4*, cheered. The guard
shouted a warning, a genera, scramble
for scats ensued, and Miss Milly had
ju^-t liiuo onouuii to ensconce the new
protector in tlio phaeton, while she
took the vacant place in the train.
When the lax carriage had rounded
the curve and become lost to view with
Miss Mlily's handkerchief Muttering
like a white moth froai one of the rear
windows, .Miss i'crry gathered up tin
reins.
' . yon mean," she t addressing
tli empty air directly in front of thephaeton,
"that you will continue to
force yourself upon mo the entire instance
homo?"
"I promised Miss P.litliO to take .von
homo in safety, ami. of course, I mean
to fulfil my promise."
"Hut my aunt Is gone now with a
perfoelly easy mind. A child <>f two
could drive 101 iza, and I really prefer
going alone."
"f couldn't reeoneile it with my conscience.
You might met with some
accident, and then how could I face
Miss Blithe? One never knows what
will happen- "specially in driving <
circus horses."
"If you are determined to be s> horrid,
the best thing I can do is to get
home as s on as posisble," remarked
| the young lady.
j For some moments they drove on in
silence. When the voice came again
from the left-hand of the phaeton it
had undergone a cliangc. It was positively
humble.
"l'lease don't Ite so hard on me," it
pleadetl. "The temptation was really
too much a whole rid* with you when j
I'd been trying for weeks lo see y#u !
and couldn't."
lh* wldp Iinnd siil* had nothing
apparently lo add, tli* left hand res
tuned
?
"You don't know how sorry I wa? 1
about that nffulr at the seaside, and
how I suffered after I cooled down. I
admit It was all my fault, and I wrote
to you begging you to forgive me. But
you sent the letter back unopened.
Isn't there anything I can do to win
back your good opinion? I'd do any
tiling you say, r.o matter what."
"You might get out of the carriage
and allow'nie to go on alone. I should
really appreciate that," saitl the wlii)>
liaml with instant readiness.
Whatever the loft hand Intended t*>
say in reply was left unsaid, for at
this point the phaeton stopped suddenly.
Eliza was sitting down again.
Reynolds fell back upon the seat anil
howled. The situation soon proved
too much for his companion also. They
laughed toget'.ier until Eliza cocked
her ears in astonishment.
"Good old Eii/.a!" cried the young
man when ho had partially recovered.
"She knows a thing or two. She won't
budge a step until t play 'Rule, liritnnnia,'
and I will never play a note of
it until you invito me to accompany
you the rest of the way."
"You won't take a mean advantage
like that, surely V"
"Won't I, though?"
"But this most unfair.V^H^B
"All is fair iu war and?
"Please play," she Interrupted,
quickly.
"Not a i;oii>. Are you going to invlt*
me?"
"I am not. f shall start Eliza without
you."
The attempt o set Eliza <n motion,
hy alternate kindness and diseip'iur
was a failure.
At the end of fifteen minutes Mis*
Harharn returned to tho seat, exhausted.
' I suppose I must acecdo to your
demands," she salu, "or I shall be herf
permanently."
"Do you invito me of your own fretl
will to accompany you home?"
"Yes, I suppose so."
"Cordially V"
"You never said it must bo cordial."
"It must certainly bo cordial."
"Well, cordially, then."
"I am entirely at your service," lidanswered,
opening tlie banjo ease.
Five minutes afterward a rotund
white mare jogged easily along u
charming country lane drawing a phaeton
which contained a man who
laughed and a girl who protested, albeit
not wrathfully, that something |
or other was a mean advantage and de? I
testably unfair.

ATLANTA'S STRENUOUS PRIMARY.
Bitter Figlit Between 1 wo Candidates, Let*
in Dark Horse tor Mayor.
The most BtrenuouB municlpjd primary
ever hold In Atlanta was "pulled
off" Wednesday with Ave candidates
for mayor lined up.
By a plurality of 168 votes over his
nearest opponent, Harry C. Stockdell. '
James Q. Woodward, former mayor,
wag returned to office by the registered
wlitte voters.
Tho total vote of each of the five*
candidates wan as follows:
Woodward. 2,008; Stockdell, 1,840;
Goodwin, 1,573; Lougino, 1,117; Keyr
r>58.
Tho victory of Woodward wan tlur
political surprise of tho election, as
many of his ardent supporters urged
that he would come a good second to
Stockdell, not even claiming that he
would be first in the race.
The expression of tlie voters of tho
city in favor of ward primaries wax
unmistakable, the proposition being accepted
by a big majority.
With the action of the people Wednesday
it. only remains for the city executive
committee to taku the proper
steps to provide in future primarie?
for individual ward expression in thechoice
of their candidates for the gen
oral council.
Heretofore dissatisfaction has been
felt at times in the general primaries
over the fact that candidates win*
would have made excellent representatives
for their wards were defeated
because the voters in other wards happened
not to bo familiar with their
records. Now the general proposition
has been accepted that each ward nas
a right to select its own representatives
in council.
