If the REPORTER man will be a little indulgent I will give you the following: A Scotch paper tells of a dream and its interesting interpretation, which in truthfulness will rank with Joseph's famous explanation: A laborer of the Dundee harbor lately told his wife, on awakening, a curious dream which he had had during the night. He dreamed that he saw, coming toward him, in order, four rats. The first was very fat, and was followed by two lean rats, the fourth rat being blind. The dreamer was greatly perplexed as to what might follow, as it was understood that to dream of rats denotes calamity. He ap pealed to his wife concerning this, but she could not help him. His son, a sharp lad, who had heard his father tell the story, volunteered to be the inter preter: "The fat rat," he'said, "is the man who keeps the public house (saloon) that ye gang to sae often, and the two lean ones are me and my mither, and the blind one is yerself, father." Who could give a better answer?—Church Evan gelist.
