A BLOSSOM SLUMBER I had a dream; it was the cream, I think of dream creations. I saw Kaiser Bill &o forth to spill his reign ov'r all the nations. And the Belgian hares, like grizz ly bears, stood bravely up, to block him; while folks of France threw shoes and pants and every thing to knock him. The Cossack braves, in tidal waves, came charging on to meet him; and in his face thrust lance and mace 'twas thus, that they did greet him. The British reds leaped out of their beds to pelt him on the noodle. But Kaiser Bill got not his nil not from this whole caboodle. So he leaned beyond tHe briny pond and peered among the Yanks, then slapped their chins and kicked their shins and gouyed them in the flanks. The Yanks got mad, and holy gad -twin sister hurricanes! The sky was thick as it would stick with Yankee aeroplanes. The air was full dense as the wool on Kaiser Willie's goat of shot and shell that downward fell and Kaiser Willie smote, prayed and begged and prayed, "Uncultured heath ens, stop it! Keep der rest of dot stuff mit you abuff for heav en's sake don't drop it! Ve Ger man guys are civilize; ve can't stand human killing. If you will cease, ve'll give you peace give itdingbusted villing." The Yanks replied with Yankee pride, "For peace, the world is aching; we'll secure it tight then take to flight, a-bringing home the bacon." As this they said, my visiohs fled; ho bomb-shells had been dropping. But peace, you bet, the ' Yanks will get, ere they start homeward flopping. Warren Coppock in Graham Guardian. SHERIFF'S SALE.
