A Dream of Reads. Farmer Hayseed liad a dream Which landed him in bed. So realistic did It seem The wonder Is he isn't dead. He thought he must go to town To buy his wife the newest gown: A few old-standing debts to pay, Call on friends to pass the day. He tried to ride, he tried to walk. The mud was deep, his horse would balk; He tried to swim, he tried to lloat, Ae tried on stilts and in a lwat. He tried to tunnel, he tried to fly. He tried to pray but could only cry: At last, exhausted, he gave it up. Reaching home too late to sup. Now he Is sick the effects of his dreaming. - Suppose It real instead of seeming. Count the worry, and count the cost. Will the road tax he greater than the sum that's lost' Nay, verily not. We think our Honorable Board did wisely and well in making the change, for of all unmitigated nuiscances the old system took the cake. Let o» Jiave patience and give the con tract system a fair and impartial Pat. trial.
