'I here being more change in the wcatlier

leave tho salt wave washed coast and get
Into the interior. Ileforo I left the const I

I am now at Mcrltlen. It's the very
placo where n female novslist was lost to

written n novel, ''Tho Dead Minister', or,
The Fatal Dish Itag," or some such mine,
nnd she had a lover, nnd ono fatal night
she sat down to read that novel to her lover.
She commenced to read ns follows: "Win
fred Attlcboro sat with hated breath n fish

-I mean hated breath," says she.
Says he, "Who the devil ever fished with
a hated breath?"
Says she, "You're a fol."
Says he, "iarevvell, Sitan;nla! fare
He might have added another letter to

Once Ihere was no such place a Meri

too. It is seventeen miles from Hartford,
and in clear nights you can hear the Insur

eighteen miles lrom New Haven, and clear
or not clear, you can hear the people down
there swear and curse because Hartlord Is
going to he the capital of the State. Mer
iden is the youngest of the incorporated
cities of the Slate. It possesses geniu nnd
liberty, both at once, nnd has n population
of over 12,000. They must be intelligent,
for they read The Sun. It is one ot the
most thriving localities in Xew England.

Tho land where Meriden stands was
bought of llio M'lttnbcsite Indians by the
original proprietors of the Xew Haven col-
nny in 1033. It was bought dirt, and dirt
j cheap. I wasn't there, but I was told so.
j West Meriden was oneo called "Pilgrims'
Harbor," f om the fact that when Charles
Second of England ascended the throne In
1C0O, those judges who had condemned nnd
i executed his P.i had to flee, and three of
'em, nanied-Goil'e, Whnley, and Dixvvell
hid in what is now called "Judges1 Cave,"
! on West Itock, near New Haven, until the
King's officers etu to this country in pur
suit of 'em, made it convenient for 'em to
out and urn for the Massachusetts Colony,
and on tlielr way they did themselves on the
i spot where West Meriden now stands, and
1 henco it was called "Pilgrims' Harbor;" it1
1 no relation of "Pilgrim's Progress," or
I "Sailors' Snug Harbor" either. Charles
' Second ascended the throne when old ' Trust

I well descended it. Golfe, Whaloy, and
Dixvvell were buried (after they died of
course) behind the Centre Church on the
green in New Haven, nnd their original
tombstones cm lie -ecu there to this day.

that "Mrs, Helen Meneluus caused the fall

that Troy had fallen) that she nlwuys

she liked theplicc." 'I hen she said her

and sho seemed so nnxious about it I re

Troy that did fall, nnd when I told her

While consulting as to tho best method ol

The gret big above us Happed and bon in d
like the sails of ;i shin, when too close

from the Interior and prolonged into n dull
and ominous roar. That the moment w is
one of extreme danger I c ml 1 no; f ira mo
ment doubt, but the horrible noise nbove
nnd the hissing below of the wind over the
tops of the still inv isible trees rendered con
versation almost impossible.
I was standing in the bow of Ihe boat nt

Mr. Donaldson in the cockpit. Suddenly
tho latter shouted. "Look nut! lie ready
to jump when 1 tell you." and the next in
stant ihe green trec-lops swept p 1st the boat
on either side. At tills iiiiiiiieut we dcrccn
ded nut of the eluiid, iii.d I saw that w e u t 1 1

spaco belwceii two pieces of wo nl-lnnd.

I saw that they were a hundred tWt l. low

swung myself upon the boat nnd shouted to
Mr. Donaldson, "What shall 1 do?" The
fury of the storm, however, drowned my
vuicc and his, nnd in anutl.er moment I
was again in the clouds, which were o thick
that even the great bag above ino was in
visible. Tins time from Mr. Donaldson's
first warning until now could not have ex
ceeded thirty seconds; yet there 1 was,
nlono, in the largest balloon ever success

and wondering what was to become of mi ,

piouip action, nnd began lo think wl nl In 1

to luck to make another lauding in n

purpose, but remembers d tliat I had niked
