LORD VIVIANS PROFITABLE DREAM. The late Lord Vivian, who died ,at Ventnor in 1885, told the late Dr. Sinclair Coghill, who attended him, a quaint experience of ,5 the success of a dream on the eve of the City and Suburban of 1S74, says English Horse and Hounds. Lord Vivian dreamed that a horse called The Teacher would win, and he determined to back it. On inquiring of Lord Rosebery he was told that no horse bearing that name was entered, but suddenly being told that an outsider was starting whose name was originally The Teacher, though It had been changed to Aldrich, Lord Vivian backed his fancy at long odds to win, and the outsider having carried off tin race, Lord Vivian won a large amount.
