I dreamed that I dwelt on an isle of

Where bloomed Ihc mint juleps in

Amid showers of lithia rain.
I reclined on a divan of lauer beer
With a pillow of froth for my head.
While a spray from :i fountain of

Descended like dew on my bed.
From fiir-away mountains of crystal
A zephyr refreshing and cool
Came wafting the Incense of sweet

Then lulled by the music of tinkling
Prom the schooners that danced on
I dreamily sipped n highball or two
And languidly floated asleep.

Wiili a bolster as hard ns a brick,
A wrench in my neck, a rack in tnv
And a stomach detestably sick;

nothing of the morning. Their idea
of it is that it is that part of the day
which comes along after a cup of cof

toast. With them, morning is not a
