DREAM SOLVES A PROBLEM
Vision of Msrhi Pate at Perplexed
Archaeologist on Right
In tha course of an Interesting Article
on "Dreams and the Supernatural" In tha
current Issue of the Outlook 1L Adding-
ton Bruce cites a number ot Instance In
which dream have guided tha dreamer
to the solution of problem which baffled
his endeavor when awake. On of these
was an experience related by Prof. Her
man V. Hllprecht. the assyrtologlst,
which 1 worth repeating. Dr. Hllprecht
own account of this alngular experience
"One Saturday evening; about the mid
dle of March, 1893, I had been wearying
myaelf, a I had don so often In the
week preceding, In the vatn attempt ta
decipher two small fragment of agate
which were supposed to belong to tha
finger ring of some Babylonian. The
labor was much Increased by tha fact
that the fragment presented remnant
only ot characters and lines, that doxen
of similar small fragments had been
found In the ruin of the temple of Pel
at Nippur with which nothing; could be
don and that In this case, furthermore,
I had never had tha original before me,
but only a hasty sketch made by one ot
the members of tha expedition cent by
the University of Pennsylvania to Baby
lonia. I oould not say more than that
tha fragment, taking; Into consideration
the place In which they were found and
the peculiar characteristics of the cunei
form characters preserved upon them,
sprang from tha Casslte period of Baby
lonian history (about 1700-1140 B. C).
Moreover, a tha first character of tha
third llrf soemed to be KU, I ascribed
this fragment, with an Interrogation
point, to King Kurlgaliu, while I placed
the other fragment, as unclasalflable,
with other Casslte fragments, upon a
page of my book where I published the
unclassiflable fragments. Tbe proofs al
ready lay before me, but I was far from
, "The whole problem passed yot again
through my inlnd that March evening; be
fore I placed my mark of approval under
the last correction In the book. Even
then I had come to no conclusion. About
midnight, weary and exhausted, I went
to bed, and was soon In deep sleep. Tlien
I dreamed tht remarkable dream:
"A tall, thin priest of tha old pre-Christian
Nippur, about 40 years ot age, and
clad In a simple abba, led me to the
treasure chamber of tha temple, on Its
southeast side. He went yK ft into
a small, low-celled room wlthiiut win
dows. In which there was a large wooden
chert, while scraps of agate and lapis
laxull lay scattered on the floor. Here he
addressed me as follows:
" 'The two fragments which you have
published separately upon pages 32 and 26
belong together, are not finger rings, and
their history la as follows: King Kurl
galiu (about 1800 B. C.) one sent to tba
tempi of Bel, among other , articles of
agate and lapis laxull, an Inscribed vo
tive cylinder ot agate Then we priests
suddenly received the command to make
for the statue of the god Nlnlb a pair ot
earrings of agate. We were In great dis
may, since there was no agate as raw
material at hand. In order to execute
the command there waa nothing; for us
to do but cut the votive cylinder Into
throe part, thus making three rings,
each of which contained a portion of the
original Inscription. The first two rings
served as earrings for the statu of the
god; the two fragments which have given
you so much trouble are portions ot them.
If you will put the two together you will
have confirmation of my words. But the
third ring you have not yet found In the
rourso ot your excavations, and you
never will find It.'
"With thla the priest disappeared. I
awoke at once, and Immediately told my
wife the dream, that X might not forget
It. Next morning Sunday I examined
the fragments once more In the light of
these disclosures, and to my astonlshmtnt
found all the details of the dream pre
cisely verified. In so far as the means of
verification were In my hands. The orig
inal Inscription on the votive cylinder
read: 'To the god Nlnlb. son of Bel, his
lord, has Kurlgaliu, pontifex ot Bel, pre
sented this.' " .
