THREE DREAMSJK I DESERT,
As I traveled across an African plain
the sun shone down hotly. Then J
drew my horse up under a mimosa
tree, and I took the saddle from liiin
Kiid loft him to feed among the parched
bushes. And all to right and loft
stretched the brown earth. And I sat
down under the tree because the heal
beat fiercely, and all along the horizon
the air throbbed. And after a white a
heavy drowsiness came over me, and
J laid uiv head down aguinst my sad
dle, and I fell asleep there. Ami iu
my sleep I had a curious dreuni.
I thought I stoo'l ou the border of a
great desert, and the sand blew about
everywhere. And I thought I saw
two great figures like beasts of burden
of the desert, and one lay upon the
sand with its neck stretched out, and
one stood by it. And I looked curi
ously at the one that lay upon the
ground, for it had a great burden on
its back, and the saud was thick about
it, so that it seemed to have piled over
it for centuries.
And 1 looked very curiously at it.
And there stood one beside me watch
lug. And 1 said to him, "What is this
huge creature who lies on the satidi"'
And he said, "This is woman; she
that bears men in her body."
And I said, "Why does she lie here
motionless with the sand piled around
And he answered, "Listen, I will tell
you! Ages and ages long she has lain
here, and the wind has blown over her.
The oldest, oldest man living has never
seen her move; the oldest, oldest book
records that she lay here thcu, as she
lies here now, with the sand about her.

to give suck to her young, and her

the broad band of Inevitable Necessity.

And 1 looked and saw in her eyes
the terrible patience of the centuries;
tho ground was wet with her tears.aud
her nostrils blew up the saud.
And I said, "lias she ever tried to

quivered. Hut she is w ise; she knows
she cannot rise with the burden ou

"And he said, "lie cannot. Look
And I saw broad baud passing
along the ground from one to the oth
er, aud it bound them together.
He said, "While she lies there lie
must stand aud look across the desert."
Aud 1 said, "Does lie know why he
And lie said, "No."
And 1 heard a sound of something
crackling, aud 1 looked aud 1 saw the
band that bound the burdeu ou to her
back broken asunder; aud the burden
rolled on the ground.
Aud I said, "What Is this?"
And he said, "The Age-of-inuscular-force
is dead. The Age-of-nervous-force
has killed him with the kuiftt he
held in his hand; aud silently and in
visibly he has crept up to the wmuau,
aud with that knife of Mechanical lu
vuution h has cut the baud that bound
the burden to her back. The Inevita

And I saw that she still lay motion
less on the sand, with her eyes open
and her neck stretched out. Aud she
seemed to look for something 011 the
far-off border of the des i t that never
came. Aud I woudered if she were
awake or asleep. And as I looked her
body quivered, and a light came into
her eyes, like when a siThVam 'breaks
Into a dark room.
I said, "What is it?"
He whispered, "Hush! the thought
has come to her. 'Might I not rise?'"
And I looked. Aud she raised her
head from the sand, and I saw the dent
where her neck had lain so long.
And she looked at the earth, and she
looked at the sky, and she looked at
him who stood by her; but he looked
out across the desert.
And I saw the body quiver; and she
pressed her front knees to the earth,
and her veins stood out; aud I cried,
"She is going to rise!" .
But only her sides heaved, and she
lay still where she was.
Hut her head she held up; she did
not lay it down again. And he beside
me said. "She is very weak. See her
legs have been crushed under her so
And I saw the creature struggle;
aud the drops stood out on her.
Audi Slid, "Surely he who stands
beside her will help her?"
And he beside me answered, "He
cannot help her; she must help her
self. Let her struggle till she is
And I cried, "At least he will not
hinder her! See. lie moves farther
from her, and tightens the cord be
tween them, aud he drags her down."
And he answered, "Ho does not un
derstand. When she moves she draws
the band that binds them and hurts
him, and he moves farther from her.
The day will como when he will un
derstand, and will know what she is
doing. Let her once stagger on to her
knees, iu that day he will stand close
to her and look into her eyes with
And she stretched her neck, aud the
drops fell from her. And the creature
rose an inch from the earth and sank
Aud I cried, "O, she is too weak I
she cannot walk! The loug years have
taken all her strength from her. Can
she never move?"
And he answered me, "See the light
iu her eyes?"
And slowly the creature staggered
on to its knees.
And I awoke; aud all to the east and
to the west stretehed the barren earth
with the dry bushes on it. The ants
ran up aud dowu iu the red sand, and
the heat beat fiercely. I looked up
through the thin branches of the trees
at the blue sky overhead. I stretched
myself, aud I mused over the dream 1
had had. And I fell asleep again with
my head on my saddle. Aud in the
fierce heat I had another dream.
I saw a desert and I saw a woman
coming out of it. And she came to the
bank of a dark river; and the bank
was steep aud high. And on it an old

her what she wauled, aud she said, "1

Land of Freedom."
And ho said, "It is before you."
Aud she said, "I see nothing befoob
me but a dark, flowing river and a
bunk steep and high, andcuttings hero

And he said, "And beyond that?"
She said, "I see nothing, but some
times, when I shade my eyes with niv

trees aud hills, and the sou shining on
He said, "That is the Laud of Free
dom." She said, "How am I to get there?"
Ho said, "There is one way, and one
only. Down the banks of Labor,
through the water of suffering. There
is no other."
She said is there no bridge?"
Ho answered, "None."
She said, "Is the water deepP"
He said, "Deep."
She said, "Is the floor worn?''
Ho said, "It Is. Your foot mav slip
at any time, ami you may be lost.'
She said, "Have any crossed al
ready?" Ho said, "Some have tried!"
She said, "is there a track to show
where tho best fording is?"
He said, "It has to be iiiadV."
She shaded her eyes with her hand,
and she said. "1 will go."
Aud he said, "You must take olT the
clothes you wore iu the desert; thoy
are dragged dowu by them who go in
to the water so clothed.''
And she threw from her gladly the
mantle of Ancient-reeeived-opinioiis
she wore, for it was worn full of holes.
And she took the girdle from her waist
that she had treasured so long, aud the
moths Hew out of it iu a cloud. Aud
he said, "Take the shoes of dcpcndcuoc

He said, "Open it and let me see."
Aud she opened it. Aud against her
breast was a tiny thing, who drank
from it, aud the yellow curls above liii
forehead pressed against it; and his
knees were drawu up to her. and he
held her breast fast w ith his hands.
And Reason said, "Who is he, and
what is he doing hero?"
And she said, "See his little wings

And Reason said, "I'ut him down!"

with one arm, and with the o'ther I will
fight the water."
He said. "Lay him down on the
ground. When you are in the water
you will forget to tight. You will

He said. "He will not die. When he
hrxls you have left him alone he will
open his wings and fly. He will lie in
the Land of Freedom before you. Those
who reach the Laud of Freedom, the
first hand they see stretched down the
bank to help them shall be Love's. He
will be a man then, not a child. In
your breast he cannot thrive; put him
down, that he may grow."
And she took her bosom from his
mouth, aud he bit her. so that the
blood ran down on to the ground.
And she laid him down on the earth!
and she covered her wound. And she
bent and stroked his wings. And I
saw the hair ou her forehead turned
white as snow, and she had changed
from youth to age.
And she stood far off ou the bank of
the river. And she said, "For what
do I go to this far land which no one
has ever readied? O, I am alone! I
am utterly alone!"
And Reason, that old man, said to
her, "Silence! what do you hear?"
And she listened intently, and she
said, "I hear a sound of feet, a thous
and times ten thousand and thousands
of thousands and they beat this way!"
He said. "They are the feet of those
that shall follow you. Lead on! make

She said, "And of those that come

heard of no more; their bodies do uot
even build the bridge?"
"And are swept away, and are heard
of no more and what of thai?" he
"And what of that " she said.

"They make a track to the water's

cried the horrified Japanese who lirst
saw Europeans eating in such a bar

graceful use of the knife aud fork as it

It is a pretty sight, at the beginning
of a Japanese feast, to see the host help
his guests to sweets, as then is dis

lesson, as the mastor of the feast daint

them on a paper before the guest. The
Chinese chopsticks are longer thau the

Feminine Drews In Japan.
Having been soaped and dried the
Japauese girl takes a long strip of cot
ton or silk, according to her taste or
condition, the strip being about eight
een inches wide and thtee yards long.
Holding the upper corner of one end
of the cloth jnsi over the left hip she
wiuds the strip tightly around the loins
aud hips, fastening it by tucking the
end corner in the belt so made, says
the San Francisco Chronicle. This
might be called the Japanese corset,
except that, instead of compressiug tho
waist, it squeezes the low er abdominal
portions aud upper hip. When proper
ly put on it makes an almost rigid
bandage, and it is this which gives that
peculiar little shuffle atfil swing to the
original Yuiii-Yuiii's walk, the legs be

down. Most writers have ascribed this
waddle to the wearing of high wooden
clogs, but this is a mistake. The meu

The kilt, so to speak, having beeu
adjusted, the Japanese girl then slips
on a little, loose, sleeveless jacket
again either of cotton or silk which
comes down to the loin cloth, and over
that a blouse or short kimono: then an
other a little longer, two or three of
these, then the kimono, and then the
obi or bow. All these undergarments
and the kimono itself nre crossed in
front and are open at the neck. Each
is decorated at the neck with a strip of
colored crape, and the whole is so ar
ranged that these strips show oue be
neath the other. Sometimes a belle
show a half dozen or more of these dif
ferent colored strips, the effect being
quite raiubowish. If the weather is
w arm the inner garments are dispensed
with, and the parti-colored silks are
sewed to the inner side of the kiuonio in
a number of plaits.
Stockings the Japaueso woman does
uot wear, except those w ho have adopt
ed the Europeau fashions, while the
shoe is either a sandal or a clog. No
matter what the form of the sandal or
clog, the method of attachment is al
ways the same a soft loop into which
the foot is thrust, with a thong to pass
between the great toe aud the others.
The sandal (zari) is nearly always
made with a straw sole and quilted top,
aud is used tor indoor wear, while the
clog (gita) is of wood. Their height is
regulated by the "tony" aspirations of
the wearer, just as French heels of ex
cessive height is worn by our owu fash
It is in her obi, or sash, however,
that the Japanese belle takes her great
est pride. Ordinarily it is tied behind in
a bow about a foot square at the back,
resembling a cartridge-box iu shape,
lint there are times wheu this modest
little bow will not suffice, aud there are
ladies who go to excesses iu the size of
the obi. It is made out of black silk,
folded to be fully a yard wide, and it is
tied iu a bow whose ends extend fully
three across. Moreover, it is w orn iu
front aud a little to tho side, and alto
gether is a very stunning affair.

For washiug tine nice flannels, noth

borax to a pail of water being the right
proportion. Always wash baby's little

Always wash baby's mouth and gums
every morning with water iu which
you have put a pinch of borax. It
keeps the mouth fresh and sweet, and
prevents that uueomfortable affliction,

poor babies are troubled when their
mouths are uot kept perfectly clean.
liorax water is excellent for spong

The Egyptian "Book of the Di'iid" or
funeral ritual contains probably the
oldest existing record of the faith of
man iu the immortality of the soul.
Its chapters are found inscribed on
mummy cases or written ou rolls of
papyrus withia them. The book re
count the supposed experience of the
soul after death; its passage across the
land of darkness Into the blessed fields,
U its final judgment and admission into
the presence of its father iu "the eter
nal dwelling place of the cleansed
spirit." The following passage from
one of these mummy cases recently ex
humed shows its express declaration of
future life: "The osiris (soul) lives
