Today the old count is drad and gonr. SBut his dream la Just beginning to reach Its Jull development. The mighty airship that bears his name crossed the Atlantic against adverse conditions, carrying a score oC i>as- Bengers in luxury and safety, with a crew of tome fifty men in Addition. The feat, nat- UraHy enough, took the world by the cars. Bolid financiers are twginning to bcliere that the dirigible can be irlade to ring cash regls- • tcrs. To be sure, all of this about the potency of dreams and dreamers is fairly old stuff. But In an age where we pride ourselves <sj our Jiard-headedness and practicality, it is wortii ; keeping in mind. And there Is oae more point to it. The dreamer who makes his dreams come true is not the "idle dreamer" ol tradition, I To play with a dreaia to the hacfc (A your mind, turning it oter every jiow and then but letting it always remain a mere fancy, its ^ to accomplish nothing.

A new continent is found, a new machine is invented to lighten the dradgcry 'of KLUUons, a Quicker method of comniunlcaUoa is developed, or the bonds of time and space which bold man- Jtind in a circumscribed orbit »re iooseoed.

Carrying loud* ed revolvers is against the law. So Je tjo&fcing whisky or beer. So is the wliwg of these commodities. So is murder. Got those? AJ1 right. Now for the story.
