ATLANTA, GA., TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER ,8, 1885.
PRICE FIVE CENTS.
SUCH STUFF AS DREAMS.
By Julian- Hawthorne.
It was lute Ju the afternoon when Ferris
I.uml pot back to hie rooms. He carefully nn-
wourd tberoft tissue paper in which his pur
chase had been enveloped, and placed the vaso
on the corner of the.Iow mantelpiece. It waa
indeed a beautiful Object???even moro beautiful
amidst its present surroundings than it had ap
peared to bo in the dirty old curiosity shop.
Lund examined it with the eye of a connois
seur. It was a genuine antique; a specimen
of the best period of Venetian
glass manufacture, soft, pellucid,??? glow
ing, mellow in coloring, graceful and Strange
Lund to himself, for ho had not yet passed tho
age of romance and sentiment; "warm, white.
Italiau hands???hands that could speak, ana
love and kill! What rooms has it enriched???
marble banqueting halls, thronged with the
stately nobles of tho great Venetian state,
chambers of lovely, women, rich, shad
owy, luxurious, secret, beneath whoso
bahonled window the black .gondola
fcpVcrcd on the silent canal, and vanished
again with a tremor of music. And it has
stoed by at the lovers' meeting; the murmured
words, the dear embrace, the kisses???perhaps
Surely this jeweled tnso could havo been tint
ed with nothing less warm than the lifeblood
of human heart! How the hue pales and red
dens and palpitates, even now! Such thoughts
arc fanciful???dreams of youth???no. Tho vaso
is haunted. The ghosts of its post possessors
are near it still.???
He took olThis hat and coat, pat on a dress
ing gown and slippers, lit a cigar and lay
down on the sofa: whence???his head being
propped by the cushion???he got the full effect
of the vase, ns it stood with the light from tho
window at the left hilling upon it, and con
centrated in a point of luster on tho blood-
hued vase in the center. In the dusky room
the vase seemed to shine by a light of its own
???subtle, opaline, changing. Occasions! ty tho
smoke from Lund's cigar, drifting Upwards in
theatill air, drew a veil over thclmage; but at
length ho stopped smoking, and continued to
con template tho vase fixedly. The light from
without faded every moment, but tho soft
sparkle of tho vaso was distinctly visible.
Row it seemed to hang in an abyss of gloom;
nothing else could be discerned. Lund's
pure became moro concentrated; his eyes were
widely opened; the eyelids never moved. Thero
was absolute stillness in tho room, savo for the
faint, rhythmic sound of the young nun's
* breathing. By degrees even that became in
audible; he lay as motionless ha the dead; but
bin ey*. were still open, nor bad their ilxe.l
glance swerved by a hair's breadth. It wa<
now quite dark. Was tho vaso still visible?
No. Yes. there is still a vanishing gleam, a
single point of rosy light???and now that, too,
One after another figures rose from this vase,
???seumed human form and moved about the
room. It was os dark as ever, so, at lent, yon
would have said had you been there; but it was
not dark to them. A spiritual light was there*
???the light of tho world to which they belong-j
cd. A world devoid of space, though broad
and varied as tho uuiverse; n world
that knows not time, though all things stand
and move in ordorly succession; a world
without matter, though solid with living sub
stance. With each newcomer tho scene gains
consistency and reality, It is as if each brought
Ids scenery with him, shining or darkening
forth, as the case might be, from their own
hearts. and thns creating a world that was tho
sensible mirror of themselves. How inevita-l
Liy tho various regions arrango themselves,
bounding one another, like the estates of great
landholders 1 But surely spirits can go whith
ersoever they will ? Why, yes; and
yet their Union are even more impossible
than these material ones of ours; for they can
not go whither they would not. As easily
might London visit Paris, as yondpr dark-
browed being touch the hand of this maiden;
though once, on earth, it was not so 1 The dis
tances of spiritual thought and affection are
loss easily traversed than terrestrial leagues;
and "I know you not??? is deeper and wider than
the A tlantlc and the Pacific.

steam or emanation, or so
it appearsat first sight; but, more attentively
examined, it Is much more than this. It is
composed of living particulars, myriads of
pictures???or suggestions arc they????of the mor
tal existence thus far accomplished. Yes, here
may be perceived every event, thought and
emotion, which, in the aggregate, make up
this life and character, a vapor of mem
ory, involuntary and irrepressible, offering It
self to the perusal of every chance corner???
were it but discernible by mortal eyes. And is
it not discernible? Whence this imprearion,
which prompts us tossy of one man "he is
dangerous,??? of another "he ia false,??? of a
third "he is honest and pure???? A dim irn-
i-ic.vion, no doubt, and easily dissipated by
the concrete distractions of social Intercourse;
bat real and abiding in a world where the
veil of the senses no longer dulls our appre

this contemplation. On every side of him

atmosphere, and there is an expedition afoot
He is already equipped and on tho roaJ,
through scenes that are strange, though made
up of what is familiar. At intervals certain
objects and circumstances fix thorn-
selves upon his attention; they are not
important in themselves, but they will not be
forgotten. Yonder white horse with the black
care and toil, for instance; or this turn of the
road, with the uool on the right and the ped
dler rotting under the hedge, ortho sualight
streaming downward in hazy rays between
thoefe dark clouds; or the long, sloping roof of
that v nyelde cottage, the tall hayrick bohlnd
and tl.e two children storing over the gate;
or the sudden larch and swing of the
coach as the wheel plunges into the
d?? t p rut; or the distant view of the town, with
tbt mu netting in a red glow behind it, against
which rises tall and dark the tower of
the cathedral; or, again, chance words

ous, something fall of interest, hope ami prom
ise, in the near future; but the anticipation
seemed prophetic, not explicit; an emotion rath
er than a knowledge. "It is tho turning poiut
of my life,??? Lund often eaid to himself, in his
vision. And although ho was himself making
thejonmey???undergoing the adventure and tho
experience???yet who hut he was, all tho while
looking on as a spectator, listening, observing,
commenting, amused, perplexed, as if a man
should sit hi the audience and behold himself
enact a character on the stage. But tho con
sciousness of this doublo existence troubled
him not,' and no wouder, since he could regard
unmoved bis own inanimate body, extended
there on tho couch, its eyes fixed, and star
ing at darkness.: A man learns to accom-
modate himself to circumstances. What chiefly
self objectively; but ass
tried to look at this companion the latter in
some way eluded him. And yet they sat and
walked shoulder to shoulder, and spoke to
gether face to face. It was very annoy in t.

Lund staggered to his feet, pressed his hands
to his eyes, stood unsteadily for a moment or
two, then groped his way to tho door and
threw it Open. A glare of light from tho hall
way dazzled him, so that ho blinked and
shaded his eyes; but thero was a man standing
there???a young man, handsome, vigorous,
laughing and holding out hia hand.
"Why, Ferris, old man, how are yon? Haro
Jon forgotten Jack Austen? They told mo
you were here and I was bound to got at you.
What's tho mhttor? Been asleep, of courso!
Yourold tricks! The same old Lund! Baft

dially. "1 don???t know what I could have

Austen only laughed, stumbled against a
_ rnir, and sat down iu it. Lund got a match
and lit his lamp. Austen glanced reund tho
room, and then fixed his gray eyes on his
friend with an amused expression.
"Sleepy!??? exclaimed he; "I should say so!
You're asleep yet, and hero it Is not 8 o'clock.
Yonr habits cry out for reform, my dear fel
low, and I am the man for your need. This
isn't half & laid little corner .you???ve squeezed

Lund jxiiutcd to a framed diploma hanging
i tho wall, which '??? announced to whom it
might concern that Jfcrri* Lund lud Y?? r;i ad
mitted to the degree of Bachelot of Medlrino.
"My drnr.doctor, aecopt my liomage and con-

on tho kucc. "But Is this your official cham
ber? Is It here that the clipping and blistering,

Lund. "Thereis no hurry; anal am more

"Then what are you driving at????
"Well, for instances dozen times today, you

???In other words, yon find my conversation
monotonous? Thanks! If I nsed my tongue

"Nonsense, Austen. It was the same with
the others???tho driver, the guard, the old lady
on the back scat. I recognized them all* and
r?? membered what they were going to any, if
the expression be allowable.. And this old:
posting bouse; if I hod lived here a month it
could not be more familiar to me.???
Austen stared doubtfally at his friend, and
laughed. "Oh, you were always full of your
mysteries,??? ho said,
"I'll give you a tost, then. I'll tell yon the
color of the near leader they???re going to give
us thin post.???
"Lay you five to one!??? cried Austen, quickly.
"It would only be taking your mouey. A
white mare with black tall and ears,???
???White mare with black ears and???I???ll give
you ten! I???ll give you twenty, by Jove!
Twenty to one in guineas!???
Luna shook his head. "Let's go to the
stable,??? said he.
They sauntered across the rood and found
the stablo at the back of the house.
"There: you can see for yourself,??? remarked
Lund, quietly. And, In fact, the hostler was
just bringing out tho animal whjch he had do-
Austen gazed at tho mare, and at Lund, and,
for once he was silent. "Do you give me your
word of honor tbere'a no game In this???? he de
manded at length.
"I have toH you what I know. Howl know
It I know no more than you.???
Austen whistled and walked round the mare,
examining her. "The near.leader,tsn'tsho???? he"
said to the hostler.
"She, sir? No, air. The near wheeler aho
be,??? replied the man.
Austen glanced at:
brows, "You???re mortal after all!
"I should l>e rather glad than otherwise,???
"Jim,??? said the stable master, coming forth'
"you.ll 'ave to put 'eron in front this trip.
'J be bay's gono lame." - -
"Bight, sir,??? replied the hostler.
Austen and Lund returned to tho coach in
silence. "It must bo a coincidence, you know,???
the former broke out finally, "How do you
account for it???????
"I think it???s the Venetian vaso,??? said Lund.
"Now then, gentlemen,??? exclaimed tho
coachman, coining out of the house and wiping
his mouth with the bock of his hand, "jump Ini
jump iu! Where ore the othera????
"At any rote, it???s not a coincidence,??? Lund
muttered to himself as they took their places.
The whip cracked and ther were off again.

iiTg heme immediately, had found hta
father lying dead from a stroke of apoplexy.
Hi* temperament inclined him to cultivate
chiefly them pr.tha of medical science which
lead to the obscurer regions of physiology and
pathology, and to the nrehlemsof the Influence
of tho mind on tho body; but the dogma of
spiritism had not, at this period, declared
itself; nnd I-und wonld in auy raso hare
thrunk ftom associating himself with aucha
movement. His was a profoundly reverent
nature, and he would not voluntarily call In
the aaafstance of hia bodily tetucs to
pt nrtrate tho mysteries of a foture state. Hia
constitution was delicate and sensitive, though
uniformly healthful, flit life was more men
ial than physical. He bad never rondeeecndod
togrossnera, Indeed or word. On tho other
hand, however, he could scarcely be called a
religious man. He could not reason from man
to Cod, and he was unwilling to aaanmo God in
outer to explain man, Like many others,
therefore, bis morality waa a matter of taste
Slid fastidiousness rather than of charity and
faith. It wes an anchor of clay, which held
well enough while the watere wen calm, but
was liable to give way in a storm.
But tho dream, or virion, or whatever It was
that had preceded the appearance of Austen
and the present expedition waa unlike any
former experience. It was connected ana
cumulative, and the manner in which its prog,
nosties were being realized inspired a mystic
excitement In Lund; he could not think that
this ahuuid occur except as the forerunner
of some important and effective event
to himself. It wrought In him* secret pride,
as cne who was spiritually distinguished
shove other men???who was being led by su
pra natural guides to the accomplishment of a
destiny, Under such circumstances, he felt
absolved from the necessity, Incumbent upon
other men, of ordering his condifct or limiting
his expectations according to the dictates of
reason and prudsnee. He was in
higher hinds; and his only concern
was to follow the signs -thns vouch
safed him. It Is tins, tho invitation hap
pened to wear n meat attractive aspect. But
