Tbe Irish of It.
Many years ago before the pro
duction of grain was equal to the
demand, wages of farm hands wee
high, but as production increased
tbe prices lowered faster than tbe
rate of wages.
A farmer employed an indus
trous Irishman for five years, at
the rate of $50.00 a month "and
found." board, lodging, washing
and mending. At the rnd of the
term, he said to hia man:
"I can't afford to pay you the
wages I have been paying. You
have saved money, and I have
saved nothing. At this rate you
will soon own my farm."
'Then I'll hire you to work for
me," said the . other, 4,and you
can get your farm back again."

According to Charles Gibeon,
this is the interpretation Indiana
give to certain dreams:
If vou are a vounn man or
woman and dream you ere flying
low, it is a sure sign you are abort
lived, and it is time you were pre
paring your little business to do
vour living at some other nlace. If
vou dream of flying among ths
housetop or juat above, you will
reach .the 50 or 60 notch.
If you dream that you are away
above the tree topa, than you are
good to live up into tbe W, and if
you dream you are bumpiog the
stars with your gourd head, then
you will rt-ach the c ntory mark.
To dream thai you are solid with a
black-eyed benuty ) a aign that
you will kill a fine unek ctar la-fore
you sleep again, 'loilreain of blood
means also m-at in the put.
