One morning, arising in what seemed her natural health and spirits, she sum moned her children to come to her. One •on was residing in Topeka, Kan., one in New Orleans, *o daughters were mar ned and living in Sedalia, Mo., but obe dietit to their mother's call, they came at once, though ignorant of the reason of their summons. When all were about h«r the lady informed them that she had had a dream in wbieh her husband, i V S8&/ with much calmness, but with the air of one who had not the slightest doubt that she was already dying. Her friends at tempted to reason with her and to point out the folly of placing such perfect con fidence in a dream, but all to no purpose for the lady persisted iu asserting tha^ she would depart from earth on such a day and exactly at a certain hour. Her pastor remonstrated with her, and even brought the severest censure to bear on her superstitious credulity, and at last Mrs. Byrnes ceased to speak of tfie matter, so that her family began to think that she had conquered her fancy. She continued in excellent health and pursued her usual daily life, but just be fore the hour she had predicted would be that of death, she sought her chil dren and bade them good-bye, then mat ing herself quiet ly in an armchair, ex pired just as the hour was struck. The physicians declare that her death was due solely to her imagination. SHERMAN'S OALLA#Tt»V. in lneld*at bj a U4y SfeowtM* Bine Quality U Ik OM Soldier.

The weather was intense ly hot and the entire audience would leane the auditorium and go to the roof, which was laild out as a garden, filled with, choice potted plants and Cowers and illuminated from the sides w th colored globes, making a most novel and effective appearance. Tables were set out among the palms and be peath trailing vines, and those who Wished could get besides a breath of fresh air. a glass of apollinaris water Or an ice. A small elevator conveyed the visitors to the roof and returned them to whichever floor their seats were on. Stepping into the elevator with others one evening my attention was directed by hearing the elevator boy refuse admittance to a young gentleman who had just handed in a Muly handsomely dressed. ••But I cannot be separated from my company," persisted the young man. I cannot take more than twelve, and you make fourteen," said the boy. The lady proposed to get out, but the gentleman was equally determined to remain in, saying "One mote couldn't make any difference, and the music would be over if they did not go up at once." While waiting their decision, the olevator boy equally as determined as the young man, a tall, white haired gentleman wearing a slouched hat, who stood near me, quietly moved to the door and passed out, saying: "Now my boy, vour load is lightened, go ahead." The handsome woman who was still arguing with her escort turned and quickly exclaimed: "No, General Sherman, we will get out" The General, however, passed on into the crowd, the lady following out with the youfig man, still protesting against t£e General's leaving. The elevator boy shut the door, and we moved quickly to the root but I with the rost of the elevator crowd, had a good lock at the old hero, and quite a murmur of applause was heard over the General's gallantry.

LOST IN A FOG. When I was eighteen years ef age I was a strong, handsome girl, ardently fond of the water. My father was rich, and, during the summers we lived in his cottage right on tho sea-shore. I was a capital sailor and had u tiny cat boat of my own. in. which I cruised up and down the river just back of our home, the stream being separated by a narrow strip of sand beach from the ocean. Careless of sunburn or freckle* and rigged in a natty blue flannel sailor costume. I spent most of my spare time sailing md rowing and iishing, and the enjoyment and health I got from those delightful sports did me much good. But* though 1 caught many tish in the pretty river I wasn't satisfied. XI want ed the bigger ones from the great, blue ocean and I watched, with longing eyes, the sturdy, native fishermen in their little dories going out over the high rolling surf and returning with their boats filled with all kinds of deep sea monsters. Of course they, wouldn't be bothered with a girl on their exciting nnd adventuresome trips, so I had to content myself on the safe river and wish I was a man. But one day in September, after a week of wonderfully quiet weather, tho ocean became as calm and glassy as a mill pond. Along the beach where the surf usually raged and thun dered only the faintest, laziest ripples slowly lapped the sand. A child could almost launch a boat and float on the still, shiny sea where a mile or less from shore the fishermen were having royal sporty as I saw through my glass. The longer I looked the easier it seemed for me at last to realize by ever recurring dreams of fishing in the ocean—providing I could get my small and light boat across the narrow sand 8tri| into it as the men did. Soon the temptation proved irresistible and regardless of consequences I deter mined to at least make the effort. Rowing my boat up the river where I couldn't be seen from the houses, and getting a dozen boys who were there crabbing, to help push, we soon had the "Foam" out of the river, across the sand and into the dear old ocean. With a "Hurrah, boys! Good-bye'." I was off alone, and after an hour's hot work at the oars, found myself an chored and hauling in more big fish than I had ever dreamed of. It was afternoon and not a breath of air was stirring. Enthused with the glorious pleasure I was having, I neither cared nor thought of anything else. I saw not the distant boats making for land, never noticed the line of gray sea-fog creeping up from the eastern horizon till I was enveloped in it Even then I only got my waterproof cloak from my iocker, put it on and kept fishing, for the fog was warm and didn't chill me. tion.

No rapon*. wa s on the ocean in a tiny boat with out a cabin—night coming on and lost —lost in the awful black sea fe)g. After a momentary panic I grew calm enough to think and take some observations to try and mako out, if possible, my whereabouts. If there had been a sea breeze I might have told the direction of the land but there wasn't. If I had known the time of tide, it could have helped roe but didn't. the natives produce sounds resembling ^iat^ rowed out further to sea or else in circles like lost people always wander As nothing was to be gained by row ing, save exercise to keep warm in the colder growing fog, got out my woolen jacket from the locker, put it on under my water proof, and prayed. Finally I concluded that in hoisting anchor I had missed my bearings and instead of pulling toward the shore, I Aow and then I gave a dispairing "halloo." Tired and well nigh exhausted I •con found myself dozing and was just fallicg asleep when^ a low, distant steam *, Mstle started me to hope and action. Again I heard it, and louder, then again bpparently approaching. I O! it was a slcmship surciv, feeling way through tu«* fog. \. on id ,mo near enough to hear my cries and save—or would It run ra# down? \. Nearer, nearer it came, but not so close as to hurt or help me. Vainly I shouted, and despairingly. 1 heard the deep, fearful sounds die away. Then I knew I had rowed and drift el far out to sea, and in the line o! passii^g vessels. 1 might have known that befot% because waves were making, and my little boat was dangerously rocking and tipping. I dared not fall asleep now, for unless I held the boat's bow head on. it would soon swamp and drown me. Even doing my best might not keep me afloat much longer, as the sea was evidently rising. 1 had often heard that drowning was not only a painless death out a pleas ant one. and although that was some sort of consolation, still it was far from cheering. I was too young to die, and yet it seemed as if I must soon perish. Pitchy blackness surrounded me, lflr the fog was utterly dense, and dripping with chilling moisture. I couldn't tell hardly which way the increasing waves were coming, so, de spite my efforts, my frail craft was fill ing with water. In another short half hottr. prolMi.bly less. 1 must drown. Then faintly from somewhere cam# the sound of u bell. •-Ding-dong-din? dong." Was it from a ship at and.

I was on top of a big wave, powerless to guide my boat, the bell sounding not ten feet away. A bigger wave struck me broadside filling my boat. 1 was sinking, and aid apparently at hand. -'Help! Help!" 1 shrieked. •Ding-dong. Then si crash—a flood of water and I was pitched from wave's crest against a floating ob ject—what, for the moment. I knew not. I felt the boat sinking. With th£ instinct of a drowning person I leaped and clutched as I struck the second time the thing and found my self. as the poor boat disappeared, swallowed by the water, on the iron skeleton frame of a bell buoy. There, standing on its platform, grasping the iron uprights, nearly washed off with every wave, and lis tening to its awful "ding-dong'' from the bell over my head I stuck 'till the blessed daylight came and the fog cleared away in the sunshine. An incoming steamer found me half dead hanging there, and rescued me from the sharks, which they said were swimming around and waiting for the breakfast, which, thank heaven, I didn't make.
