Jennings Bryan prefaced his ad dress, which was of two hours' duration, with a denial that he will again seek to become the Democratic party, his denial being contained in the following phrases: i ,;I hope you will give mo credit with possessing a higher ambition than to be satisfied with the office of president of the United States. I am too Democratic to covet an ambition that only a few of one generrtion can share. I prefer the honor of being a private citizen, an lienor greater than'that of a king." ? CONCERNING DREAMS. i 11 A New Orleans Man Doesn't Be- ' lieve in them, but he Tells a i Story. (From the New Orleans Times- r Democrat.) v ' Dreams are curious things, t and as a rule 1 do not take much stock in them," said a man who lives up town, "hut a thing happened here in New Orleans a in the halcyon days of the c ! Louisiana lottery which made t me a little shaky in my unbe- t lief. The city was honeycombed t then with lottery schemes and li a man could make almost any p" ! 1 kind of a bet on the turn of the ' r wheel. 0 "A friend of mine ha and old- t j fashion nogroo woman servant t 'a* his house and she was in the li'iiUr nt' 11 j'Ofi ni i n ir I Liner.; ()iiil morning she toM him she had j dreamed during the night that! 'three certain numbers had won prizes in 1 he lot tory. Ho laughed.! but ho remembered the numbers, and in some way the thing made an impression on him.

He told the old negro - about it, and when she got up * on tin? hhird morning she anp nounced that she had another i dream in the wee small hours - and she gave my friends the numbers.

Wanti to try it today?' 4 " 'No," said the friend, 'no dreams in mine.' "Well, sir, by a remarkable streak of fortune my friend played and won again, and he won about $1,800 on the third day of betting on the numbers the old woman had dreamed. Now here is a thing that actual ly happened here in New Or . leans, and to be honest about it my scepticism on the subject of dreams was softened a little by these happenings. 1 knew all , circumstances as well as if they . had happened to me, and it is J no fairy tale. Since that time, while not professing to believe ' iti dreams, I have yet had more respect for the extraordinary ; stories of this kind which wo hear from time to time." Two liritish Deserters.
