By Harry Rallston.

In coming home from the club, my head was in a swim,
It was almost bursting, for I had been filling in.
My wife was sleeping soundly, so into bed I crept­I'll tell you of the visions that came o'er me while I slept:

I thought I saw a policeman who would refuse a drink,
I thought I saw a pretty girl who would not give a wink,
I thought I saw a car conductor who would not knock a fare,
I thought I saw a dude that was flying through the air,
I thought that all the bank cashiers from Canada were back,
I thought that sailors were fed something else besides hard-tack,
I thought I saw Charley Mitchell learning how to light,
I thought I saw Bob Ingersoll so gloriously tight,
I thought I saw a ton of coal that weighed two thousand pounds,
I thought I saw Sullivan and Kilrain fight two hundred rounds,
I thought I Saw the North Pole found by General Washington,
I thought I saw a laundry that on time would have your washing done .
I thought I saw a minister practice what he preached,
I thought I saw a workingman getting forty dollars a week,
I thought I saw a married man who was not on the mash,
I thought I saw a millionaire's son without a cent in cash.
I would have kept on thinking, but I awoke in a swoon,
My feet were out the window, and my head in a spittoon.
