A Stoiy SliowlnK the Kemarkable Swift ness WiM, Which the Mind Work, When It I, Supposed to Be Takinc a Rest now Lonj; It Took to Io Ten Hours' Work. A few evenings since a number of newsraper men were in an office await in? th arrival of a gentleman who was to c.il together a meeting that they had been Erected to report for their respec tive pipers. A l umber of topics was discussed, and one of theso was dreams and the extrene rapidity v.iih which mental opera: ions are performed. A number of experiences were given, but the one that attracted the most attention was that of a Call representat ive, who narrated what he had done in a dream. "It was," said lie, "in lSfiS that after a ham day's work I reached home and lo.-t l o time in retiring. Glancing at the cl irk as I turned off the gas I noticed thati: was just 10 minutes after mid Eight. ' SI: all I tell you at this point how long l was dreaming or tell first what I fli.l m my dr:li-.J That you all mav better apprt- late what was done, I will defer the matter until the end. Bear in mind that what is to be told was all in the dream. Seated in the old office on Com mercial street, above Montgomery, I was endeavoring to put into presentable shape the facts of a trial that had taken place hi the district court, when in came E. A. Kockwell. who was the chief ed itorial writer, iu:d calling me by name said: -Yon had better get readvand tro to Sa i Leandro. There's been "a terri ble r.airoad acci 1. i.t.

There was not a team i f any kind at the lauding, so 1 had to walk to Oakland. "A desire to make up for the time lost urged me on, and 1 think the time made from the landing to Broadway and Was lington street has never been beaten by u an. Near the corner I went into a livery stable and ordered a pair of horses hitched up. There was a delay there, f..r tiie proprietor had his. doubts about the ability of the team making the "trip out and back. Finally I started, and the way those horses flew over the road was .1 caution. When the scene of the disa; tor, sosr.e distance beyond San Le andro, about 14 miles from Oakland, was reached, I proceeded at once to gallv-r the facts. "Down on the nofebook were penciled the names of o odd men, women and children who had either been killed out ri&lr.or burned to death in some of the cars which ha.r caught fire. Then fol low, d the names of about -10 who had beer, injured, a description of their in juries and the opinions of the physicians who were in attendance as to the possi ble outcome in each case.

Blankly this that George of Wales was married; that the name of the place and the name of the lady, alleged to be the daughter of a naval officer of high degree, were known, and both names and places changed and fluctuated as the price of scandal shares rose or fell in the gossip market. Like ill winds, the ugly rumor grew apace over the dinner table and afternoon teapot. Men talked of it more shame to them women mur mured it with giggles and innuendo: the very "outsiders" gut hold of it, and all the time the story was positively and ab solutely untrue.

But there are plenty of instances where women have been left in circumstances wjiich would try the powers of the stoutest hearted man to the utmost and have come out tri umphant. One of these was mentioned to a reporter the other day in connection with a rough side hill farm in a remote part of an inland town. "There," said our informant, pointing to the place, "lived Aunt Abby S when her hus band died. She then had three small children, and another was bora boon after. The farm was in poor condition and had about all the mortgage it could bear. Her husband's old father, feeble and fussy, was left on her hands. "Did she send the old man to the poor farm, think you? Not a bit of -It. She kept him a year or two, and lie was so fussy she couldn't live with him. Jien she hired a neighbor to take him, and she paid his board 12 years, when he died. She raised her children and brought the farm into good condition. She paid the mortgage, and when she died she left a good projerty free and clear of all debts. The boys hadn't the old lady's spunk, for there's a mortgage up there now, and nothing in the world but lazi ness did it. They had everything left ready to their hands and ain't had no drawbacks, Yept losin their mother, but somehpw the weeds have got the start of 'em, and I guess they'll keep it.'' Lew iston Journal.

It Was ut a 'lectins In Indianapolis That the Voir of the Great Singer Was First Heard by the Stirring Evangelist Their First Woik. It was at Indianapolis in 1ST0 that these two men first made each other's acquaintance. Mr. Moody was already displaying that zeal in evangelistic work which subsequently made him famous, though then his efforts and his reputa tion were confined largely to Chicago. Mr. Sankey's home was in Newcastle, Pa., where he was then serving as an in ternal revenue officer. His father was a banker and active in politics and held under Lincoln's appointment the impor tant position of collector of inland rev enue for four large counties in western Pennsylvania. Young Sankey was then a Christian, having been converted a number of years before during a Metho dist revival, and his talent of song had already begun to be used for his Master. Coming to Indianapolis to attend as a delegate from Newcastle the national convention of the Young Men's Christian association, Mr. Sankey attended one morning a 6 o'clock prayer meeting, held in the basement of the First Baptist church, led by Mr. Moody. The singing dragged, and Mr. Sankey, at the sugges tion of a minister who was seated beside him, started np the familiar hymn. "There is a fountain filled with blood." It went well and was followed by other 6ongs equally successful, and Mr. Moody became so interested that he looked about to see whence the new impetus in singing came. After the meeting closed, with characteristic quickness of deci sion, Mr. Moody, hardly waiting for an introduction, said to Mr. Sankey: "You're the man I have loeu looking for for the last eight years. Come and lunch with Lie." Tlie invitation was accept, ii. and later in the day the two men got together, and the subject of a future combination of forces was talked over in downright earnest. Mr. Moody pressed u-,.o;i Mr. Sankey the duty of at ion e j'.i.-nn- t;;;:i 1H t nu ago. l.nt in Sankey's mind there were some prac tical :. joc:i. ! arising from his bnsi-nc-saud f.iiuily ionn etions. 'Tama government officer." he said to Mr. Moody, "an 1 may fuel it difficult to get released." "Th-re is a bett.-r srovt-rn- is the re- liieut to serve than this,' piy tnat flashed iiistaniiy int. But, persuasive :;s Mr. Moody -was. he did not carry his point th' n and 'there. Mr. Sankey t. .ok several maul lis in which to consider the matter. That very afternoon, however, the first Moody and Sankey public, meeting was held, with no advertisement except the singing as led by Mr. Moody's newly found friend. It was an outdoor gather ing, and tlL masses were there. Mr. Moody brought out a box from a store to a favorably located street corner, mounted it, and there a short but fer vent service of preaching and song was held. At the close of this ojien air meet ing the two evangelists headed a pro cession for the Acad-my of Music, where the convention mel tings were held, sing ing as they marched with the crowd in to the Acad, my of Music, the convention having adjourned the discussion of "How to li"ach the Masses" and gone to supi-er. When the deb-gates got back to tlie academy building, thev found it nearly 'naif full i f ihe very "lapsed mass;-" about whom they had been discussing. Mr. Moody cut short his second address, dismissed the audi ence and went out with Mr. Sankiyto get something to iat. Mr. Sankey was greatly iuipr-s.se 1 with those two "meet ings and said to Mr. Moodv. "Yon are reaching the masses while other people are talking about, them." After the convention was over Mr.. Sankey went back to Newcastle and talked the question over with his wife and family. He did not see his dutv clearly all at once, but Mr. Moody kept writing for him to come to Chicago and at last persuaded him to go out for a week to look the ground over. Arriving in Chicago in the early lhorning, he went first to Mr. Moody's house, reaching there just as family prayers were being held. Almost before Mr. Moody intro duced him to his family he asked" him to ting a hymn and thns contribute his part toward the informal service of praise. Then the two men went out into the streets of the city visiting the sick and unfortunate. That day must have been a notable one in the personal history of the two men. who afterward commanded the eager attention of great audiences on both sides of the sea. On this occasion, as two ordinary missionaries, they went about, from house to house, singing and reading the Bible and speaking the word of cheer and hope wherever it was needed. This was their first day's labor together. Evening meetings were held during the week in the Illinois street church, of which Mr. Moody was the head and leader. On Sunday a large meeting was held in Farwell hall, and as the organist hap pened to be absent Mr. Sankey had to sing without instrumental accompani ment, not having even a small cabinet organ there. The effect of the service npon the people there was so marked that Mr. Moody turned to the singer and said, "You see I was right." There were that night not less than 100 inquiries. The earnest preaching and consecrated 6ong had gone home to many a heart. From that time until the present these men have been colaborers, and the story of their career here and in Great Britain is 60 familiar that it need not again be rehearsed.
