Hanev Jewell who was so well and
fnvoraoly known In loton in legal and
business oireles and was a brother of
the late Marshall Jewell had recently
a very queer and unusual experience
and ono calculated to make a deep im
pression upon tho strongest mind

which sho distinctly siwaa undertaker
drive up to her residence In a hearse
Ho iva a peculiar looking man His
quecrly shaped nose which looked as
if it had been broken ami tw isted to one
side giyo hi countenance an expres

rectly towanl liorvaiiil as ha said Are
you all ready she suddenly awoke
Tho dream seemed a peculiar one
but did not attract icry much attention
in tho household until a few days or a
week later it wa repeated with exactly
tho same characteristics down to tha
Are you all ready and tho awaken
And now comes the strangest part
of the story Some hill lime nftcr
ivanl the young lady was vi iting in
Cincinnati nnd wont to an apartment
hotel to call upon n friend She stepped
into thu elevator with other mid was
startled to hear -Are lou readi from
the man in charge She was Mill more
startled on looking around nnd behold
ing the exact picture of the man of the
dream oven to tho miliapened nose
It made such nn impression upon her
mind that she request -d to be let out of
the elevator at the hrst linding She
otepped out nml the other occupants
went out t tb j lindliur and Uie
man remained Tnu elevator machin
ery gave out suddenly the car went up
and then down aul the man was in
stantly killed
