about, gloomy wild sad, tilled with Ci , ziahil

Presently in his dream he approacht
the grand stand, wick wuz akepied by
the leaders: and devotid to the moosic in
the occashun. Here a most pekoolyer
site met hiz gaze. Ile notist one small
but soft-toned instrooment, holler and
very much like a Boot, evidently made
for peaceful strains, out uv wich Wade
Hampton WU% strainin and blowin tile
most feroshus and war-like strains. The
lied uv the instrootnent wuz ieymoure's
lied, and ez he lookt Closter he found it
assoomed the general appearance uv the
man. It tried hard to keep the smooth
melojus tones to with it wuz normally
adapted, but the gum-visaged Hampton,
whose wind is inexhaustible, blowd sieh
strong blasts and lingered the holes so
adroitly, that it played hiz toons and hiz

had no trouble with it. It wuz, ez dis
cordent nacherally ez it rood be, and it
was splendidly adapted to the eapassity
of the player.
I give the dreem henceforth in the El
der's own words:
"Wat in thunder," sed I to a man vieli
seemed to be sort uv engineerin in the
concert, " \vat in thunder is Sevmoure
and Blare and sicli ez them furnishin
moosie for stratb Southern Dimocracy

to the tool uv bondholders and to Federal
soldiers and rich I Ez for one, I. will
"Don't talk like an eggre,jis ass !" sed
this man. "lleven't you any sense ?
Can't you see that Seymore and Blare
are merely the instrooments wick are
played onto, and that Boregard and
Wade Hampton are the individools who
furnish the wind and linger the holes.
Listen, how grandly 'Dixie' and the
`Bonny 8100 Flag' swells out onto the
air, and tills surroundine; space? And
see, ez Boregard shoves out the trom
bone, how it hez knockt oil' the stand all
them which from firmer attachment to
to the instromnent wuz close to it, and
how sweetly the pizen breth with is twin
blowed, tho its combined with that nv
the instrument itself, hez smothered all
them whose presence wood hey embarast
