r-r-r-H-i'M-H'H-i-M-i'W t HIS FORTUNE IN A DREAM. i But Everybody Is Not IZxpevted to lle lieTO the Story. i -T,,, , 4-rW- -H rt?.rT.Ti?w7-rttYM There lived at Swnffhani, in Norfolk, a hardworkiiur, Industrious man, who followed the trade of n tinker. Thi luan dreamed one night that if ho look a journey to London and placed himself on a certain part of London bridge he should there meet with ft person who would communicate some thing to hiin of great importance to his future prospects in life. This dream made some impression on the tinker's nriud, and he related It Tery circumstantially to his wife in the morn ing. She, however, half laughed and half scolded at him for his folly in pay ing attention to such idle fancies and told him he had better get up and go to work. The next night he dreamed the same again and likewise the third night, when the impression was so powerful on his mind that he determined, in spite of the remonstrances of his wife and the ridi cule of his neighbors, to "go to London and see the upshot of it." Accordingly, having made arrange ments as to the management of his busi ness during hU absence, he furnished himself with a sum of money and set off on foot for the metropolis, distant about 00 miles. He reached the end of his journey late on the third day, and, hav ing refreshed himself with a night's rest, he took his station the next morning on a part of the bridge which corresponded with the description in his dream. There he stood all that day without any communication to the purpose of his journey. The next day it was the same and the third, so that toward night his confidence in his dream as well as his patience began to be considerably shaken, and he inwardly cursed himself for his folly in not yielding to his wife's advice and resolved that next day he would leave London and make the best of his way home again. However, he kept his station until late in the evening, when just as he was about to leave it a stranger who had noticed him standing doggedly and with anxious looks on the same spot for some days accosted him and asked what he was waiting there for. After some hesi tation the tinker told him his errand, without, however, acquainting him with the place he came from. The stranger smiled at his simplicity and advised him to go home and in fu ture pay no attention to dreams. "I myself," said he, "if I were dis posed to put faith in such things, might now go 100 miles into the country upon a similar errand. I dreamed three nights this week that if I went to a place called Swaffham, in Norfolk, and dug under an apple tree in a certain garden on the north side of the town, I should find a box of money, but I have something else to do than to run after such idle fancies. No, no, my friend; go home and work well at your calling, and you will find there the riches you are seeking here." The tinker was astonished. This, he doubted not, was the information he was seeking, but he said nothing fur ther to the stranger than to thank him for his advice and to declare his deter mination to follow it. He immediately went to his lodging and the next day set off for home, which he reached safe. He said but little to his wife on the subject of his journey, but rose early the next morning and commenced dig ging on the spot supposed to be pointed out by the stranger. After proceeding in his work a few feet downward his spade struck against a hard substance, which, upon clearing the mold from the top of it, proved to be an iron chest. He quickly removed it to his house, and, having with some difficulty broken off the lid, to his great joy found it full of money. After securing this treasure he dis covered upon the outside of the chest an inscription, which, being no scholar, he was unable to decipher. He therefore hit upon the following expedient to as certain its meaning: There was in the town a grammar school, several of the pupils from which were constantly in the habit of passing his smithy on their way to and from school. The tinker judged that by plac ing the chest at the door it would excite the attention of the boys, and thus he should be able to obtain the object in view without exciting any suspicion emong his neighbors. He soon had the opportunity he sought. A number of the boys having gathered round, as was their custom, to witness the operations of the forge, he took oc casion to challenge their scholastic skill in the translation of the inscription. Some shook their heads; others, after conning over it awhile, said it was not sufficiently legible. At length, one older than the rest, anxious to display his superior learning, after scraping and brushing off the rust, gave the following solution of it: Whero this stood Is another twice as good. Overjoyed at this information, the tinker next morning resumed his labor, and, a little below the ground already cleared, he found a second chest double the size of the first, and, like it, filled with gold and sijver coin. The account goes on to state that, be coming thus suddenly a wealthy man, the tinker showed his gratitude to Provi dence by building a new chancel to the church, the old one being out of repair. And, whatever fiction the marvelous taste of those ages may have mixed up with the tale, certain it is that there is shown at this day a monument in Swaff ham church having an effigy in marble, said to be that of the tinker, with his liog at his side, and his tools and imple ments of trade lying around him.

Email way by the prices which he puts on his wares. The fruit is arranged in tempting groups on his pushcart, and each group is usually marked with a ticket, so that the pedestrian may know the prices without nsklng. Over a pile of plums may be seen the tiny sign, "8 for 9 cents." Now, the average customer does not buy eight plums, and when ho asks for one it is 2 cents, or two for 3 cents and, as the render sells more lots of one than anything else, the eight for 0 cents becomes a myth, and his stock averages nearly 2 cents apiece.

Innliic Selection. A returned missionary, giving some account of his experiences In Jamaica, says that he was once called upon to act as arbitrator between a man and his wife who had had a violent quarrel. The couple came to the missionary's house a short time before the hour appointed for a prayer meeting to be held iu the chapel in the missionary's dooryard. The man and his wife both began to talk at the same time, their tongues going fast and furious and their temiMsrs rising until they finally came to blows and fought until the mis sionary was forced to use all his strength in separating them. He succeeded in calming thein and induced them to remain to prayer meeting. After a hymn had been sung the missionary requested each person present to give a quotation from the Scriptures, whereupon the man who had the difficulty with his wife got up and said briefly: "I have fought a good fight" The missionary had hardly recovered from the shock of this when an old black woman got up and prayed that "de niinistah" might be given strength for "his weak body and his feeble miud." Detroit Free Press. The Iloj- "With the Hose. The other evening as an open electric car was going south on Center avenue it passed a small youngster engaged in sprinkling grass with a hose. Just as the car came opposite him he whirled and innocently sent the stream with full force Into the crowd of passengers. The instantaneous uproar which arose caused the driver to shut off power and put on brakes instantly, while the child stood, open mouthed and stupefied, pouring the water Into the car. The passengers scrambled over each other to get out the other side, as he seemed unable to change the direction until the conductor did it for him. At this point in the proceedings the boy seemed to recover his faculties suddenly and bawled loudly, while the car went on. Chicago News.

Bpston Commercial Bui Ietln, PFSJSSftMS " SSSSKSS Mrs. James' Bay Window. Of course it was Mrs. James iu her bay window that made all the row and changed the face of that time honored facade that had fronted the park for two generation. It was not much of a park, to say the truth, just a block square of trees and grass, but it was a park the park and the choice resi dential quarter of the town. To move down to the park was to get into society. The row of houses,' in the middle of one of which dwelt Mrs. James, was a solid block, all alike from corner to corner, three story, red brick, high stoop dwell ings, without any frills or excrescences to mar their respectable uniformity. Everybody in the row knew everybody else, and, though naturally there was more or less gossip running along from hou"-e to house, especially in the sum mer, when all over town people were sitting out evenings on the front steps, still it was what might be called a very friendly and neighborly neighborhood till Mrs. James blossomed out with her bay window. It was a Christmas present from Mr. James a handsome plate glass and Imi tation brown stone abutment over the front door. But the row disliked it from the first It broke the harmony of the block in more senses than one. In the first place, it looked lonely, jutting out all by itself from that block long flat ness of red brick. Then, too, it made the other houses look poor and untrim med. And to look poor and untrimmed is to feel so of course. However, by the exercise of a little Christian charity this might have been endured. What the neighborhood couldn't stand was to feel itself watched, as it speedily did, by that protruding eye which raked the street from end to end. All Mrs. James had to do was to sit there in her ob servatory and see everything that went on along the entire row. And sit there she did, morning, noon and night All night, too, the men began to say as she began to twit them with their hours for coming home. She could do that with a good face, for the whole row knew that Mr. James was always in bed and asleep by 10 o'clock at night. He had his fun by day "when he might better have been attending to business," as Mrs. Snipper told Mrs. James to her face, wien they had the row, that all came about from that prying bay win dow. Mrs. James saw Mr. Snipper come home one night rather later than he ought, and, instead of keeping the matter to herself, or, at any rate, being content to say what she had to say about it quietly in the next one's ear, what does she do but hail Mr. Snipper next day from her stoop to his in this fashion: "Well, Mr. Snipper, it strikes me that you keep pretty late hours for a married man. One o'clock this morning when you came in." "Well, Mrs. James," said he, "you needn't say anything. It strikes me yon keep pretty late hours for a married woman." "Why, what do you mean?" she asked, very indignant. "Well, how the devil" and, mind you, this was all out loud, from stoop to stoop "how the devil can you know that 1 am up late if you aren't up late your Eelf to see?" It wasn't a very nice way to speak to a lady, one must own, but the poor man certainly did have provocation. And he was as good a man, too, as ever stepped. However, Mrs. James rushed off and told Mr. James that Mr. Snipper had insulted her. And Mr. James spoke to Mr. Snip per, and before the row was over Mrs. Snipper had thrown out that hint about Mr. James, and then there was music at the Jameses too. And so it went, all along the row, first one and then another, and all on account of that spying bay window, till finally Dan Tripper took the matter up and set tled Mrs. James and her bay window once for all. Everybody around the park had known all along that Dan's broth er Sam' dissipated more than he should. But he wasn't a married man, and as his brother and his brother's wife bore with him nobody else felt called upon to make remarks. However, it must be said that nobody knew quite how badly he did go on till Mrs. James saw him from her bay window sneaking home at 5 a. m. very disheveled. Of course, it was disgraceful, and it made such a talk that Sam up and left his brother's house it was half his home, too; said he wouldn't live near any woman. That bay window of Mrs. James' brought cursing and swearing into the row as well as anger and bitterness. So Sam took rooms over Hicks', the barber's, up town, in a business block, and the Trippers were furious. Sam couldn't pay his board, of course, in his brother's own house which was half his, but he was al ways making them lovely presents. And Sally Tripper liked him, anyway; said if they'd only leave Sam to her she'd bring him around all right in time. Well, Dan Tripper said he'd be" hanged if he wouldn't fix that James woman; he'd have a bay window, too, and Mrs. Tripper should spend her life in it keeping tab on Mrs. James. And he did. What was more, his bay window was round. The James' was square, so, in a way, and, so to speak, he had the bulge on Mrs. James. His bay window may not have stuck out any farther, but it seemed to. And sure enough, pretty soon Mrs. James had to lower her shade on the side toward the Trippers and keep it down. Lace curtains aren't any protection, you know, when there is an other window right behind you. Well, and when Mr. Snipper, on the other side of her. saw how Dan had fix ed her, he posted off to the same archi tect and ordered a bay window exactly like the Trippers. And there was Mrs. James completely sandwiched. , Now all the houses in the row have bay windows, and the old block has got back to something like its former decent uniformity, with nobody having the ad vantage over anybody else.

People who are not versed in matters of army usage often ask why certain army officers are addressed as "mister'' and not by their titles. To the men who. enter the service from West Point the custom is well understood, because they know that, uo matter how much authority they may have or how gay their uniform may be, they are sim ply "misters" until they wear two bars on their shoulder straps. A recent oc currence in "the Army building illus trated' the matter." A man who had been a field officer in the volunteer service in the-war with Spain had been appointed to a lieutenancy in the new volunteer army and called at one of the offices at the headquarters on a matter of business. There the officer in charge presented him to ji United States army officer. "Major Blank, allow nio to present Mr. Smith Mr. Smith, Major Blank." The volunteer officer hinted In n modest way, when the major had with drawn, that it might have been well to- let the fact be. known that he also wnj an army officer. "Oh, that's all right," said the officer who had acted as host, "everybody is mister until he ls captain." Kveu in service the first aud second nontenants are addressed "mister" by officers of higher rank. The custom is so general that it is not unusual for lieutenants In the regular service to have their visiting cards engraved with the "Mr." prefixed, thus: "Mr. John Brown Smith, United States Army." The officer iu the regular service also shows a preference for civilian's dress, which the volunteer officer does not always share. When not on duty, at home on leave or on his way to post the regular officer usually wears no part of his uniform, and prefers to ap pear as an ordinary citizen. New York Tribune.
