TUB DAUBS IN TUB CLOUDS.
Just teu years ago, there suddenly burst
upon the Western world, a magnificent
stranger from foreign parts, "with all his
traveling glories on." It was tho great
comet of 1858, on the grand tour of the
It seemed strange "that petty human lifo
could go on as usual, with its eating and
drinking, toiling, trafficking and pleasuring,
while that "Haming minister," on bis bul?
lion-leagued circuit, was preaching the
wonders of infinite immensity aud power,
aud the nothingness of earth. But science
bas robbed celestial apparitions of their old
portentous significance. Tho comet no
longer runs his kindling race, like Vicli
, Alpine's henchman, with his fiery cross,
announcing war and disaster, '
Herald of battle, fate and fear,
Ile is on bis own business; not ours.
Under tho tail of this particular cornet
doubtless many a tale of love was told-in
the light of his swift splendors many a
tender look exchanged. Tho astronomer
coolly swept tho starry field with bis glass,
unawed by tho irregular night-guard patrol?
ing tho Heavens, and tho robber and mur?
derer disdained tlu> awful witness. He left
as he found ns-joined to our mortal idols
wiso in our conceit, weak and worldly aud
wicked, but no castaways of tho universo
We remember that comet summer, not so
much for its great astronomical event, as for
two singular incidents that moro nearly
touched our human sympathies, which will
.grovel in poor earthly affairs even within
sight of the most august celestial phenomena.
Ono pleasant Saturday afternoon during
tho comet's appearance, an aeronaut, after a
prosperous voyage, descended upon a farm
in tho neighborhood of a large market town,
in one of the Western States. He was soou
surrounded by a curious group of tho far?
mer's family and laborers, all asking eager
questions about tho voyage and the manage?
ment of the balloon. That, secured by an
anchor and a rope in thc band of the aero?
naut, its car but a foot or two ubovo tho
ground, was swaying la/.ily backward and
forward in the evening air. It was a good
deal ont of wind, and was a sleepy und inno?
cent monster in'the eyes of the farmer, who,
with the owner's permission, led it up to his
house, where, us ho said, ho could "hitch
it" to his fence. But before ho thus secured
it, Iiis three children, aged respectively ten,
eight and three, begged bim to lift them
"into that big basket," that they might sit
on "tboso pretty red cushions."?tWhilo tho]
attention of tho tero mint was diverted by
moro curious questioners from a neighbor?
ing farm, this rush father lifted bis durlings
one by ono into tho cur. Chubby little
Johnny prcvpd thc "ounce Loo mach" for
tho aerial camel, and brought bim to tho
ground; and thou, unluckily, not the baby,
but tho eldest hopo of tho family, was lifted
out. The relief was too great for the mon?
ster. Tho volatile creature's spirits roso at
once, ho jerked his baiter ont of thu farmer's
hand, and with a wild bound, mounted into
tho air. Vain wus tho sorouuut's anchor.
It caught for a moment in a fence, but it
tore away, and was off, dangling uselessly
utter the runaway balloon, which HO swiftly
and steadily rose, that in a few minutes
those two little whito faces peering over tho
edgo of the car grew indistinct, and tboso
piteous cries of "papa!" "mamma!" grow
faint and fainter in the air.
When distance and ?-..light mists had
swallowed up voices ar.?J faces, and nothing
could be seen but tho durk cruel shspe,
sailing triumphantly away, with its precious
booty, like au aerial privateer, tho poor
father sank down helpless and speechless; !
feat the mother, frantic with grief, still
stretched her yearning arms toward the
inexorable heavens, and ca1 lcd wildly up
into the unanswering void.
The noronaut strove to console the
wretched parents with assurances that the
balloon woold descend within thirty miles of
town, and that all might be well with the
ohildren, provided it did not come
down in water, or in deep woods. In
the event of its descending in a favorable
spot, there was but one danger to be appre?
hended; he thought that the elder child
might step out, leaving the younger in the
balloon. Then, it might again rise, and
continuo its voyage.
..Ab. v??V' replied the mother, "Jennio
would never stir from the car, without
Johnnie in her arms!"
Tho balloon passed directly over the town,
and the children, seeing many people in tho
streets, stretched out their bundi- and cried
loudly for help. But the villagers, though
they saw tho bright little heads, heard no
Amazed at tho strange apparition, they
might almost have thought tho translated
little creatures small angel navigators on
some voyage of discovery, somo little che?
rubic venture of their own, as, heading
toward the rosy cloud-lands aud purplo
islands of sun-sot splendor, they sailed deeper
and deeper into tho West and faded away.
Some company they had, poor little sky
waifs! Something comforted them, and
allayed their wild terrors-something whis?
pered them that below tho night aud clouds
was home; that above was God; that where
ever they might drift or clash, living or
dead, they would still be in His domain and
under His care-that though borne away
among tho stars, they could not bo lost, for
His lovo would follow them.
When the sunlight all went away, and thc
great comet came bluziug out, little rf chun ic
was apprehensive that tho comet mighl
como too near their airy craft, nnd sol
it on fire with a whisk of its dreadful
tail. But when Iiis sister assured him that
tho liory dragon was "as much us tweutj
miles awuy," and that God wouldn't let bia
hurt thom, ho was tranquilized, but soot
afterward said, "I wish bo would como t
little nearer, so I could warm myself-l'a
Then Jcunio took oil' her apron, ant
wrapped it about the child, saying tenderly
"Thia is all sister has to make you warm
darling, but she'll hug you close in bei
arms, and we will say our prayers, aud yoi
shall go to sleep."
"Why, how can I say my prayers before'
huve my supper?" asked little johnnie.
"Sister hasn't any supper for you, or fo
herself, but wo must pray all tho harder,
solemnly responded Jennie.
So tho two baby-wanderers, alone in th
wide heavens, unawed by darkness, immeu
sity and silence, by the presence of tho groa
comet and tho millions of unpitying stars
lifted their little clasped hands, nnd sot.be
out their sorrowful "Our Father," and th?*
that quaint little supplementary prayer:
Now I lay mo down to a'.cop.
I pray tho Lord my aoul to keep,
If I .".binilil dio before I wake,
I pray tho Lord my soul to take.
"There! God heard that, easy; for-wo ai
closo to Him, up here," said iunoceut littl
Doubtless, Divine Love stooped to tl
little ones, and folded them in perfect peat
-for soon tho younger, sitting on the bo
tom of the car, with his head leaning again:
his sister's knee, slept as soundly as thou?
he were lying in his own little bod at homi
while the elder watched quietly through tl
long, long hours, and the car floated gent!
on in tho still night air, till it began to swi
and rock on tho fresh morning wind.
Who can divino that simple little child
thoughts, speculations and wild imagining
while watching through those hours? Si
may bavo feared coming in collision with
meteor-for many were abroad that nigh
scouts and heralds of tho great comet-o
perhaps, being cast away on somo deso?a
star island, or, more dreary still, floutii
and floating on, night and day, till th<
mould both dio of cold and hunger. Poi
babes in tho clouds!
At length, a happy chance, or Provident
-wo will say Providence-guided the litt
girl's wandering bund to a cord connect?
with tho valve, something told her to pi
it. At once tho balloon began to sin
dowly and gently, ns though let down 1
tender 1 ands; or as though somo celesti
pilot guided it. through tho wild currents
tir, not letting it drop into lake or river, lof
wood, or impenetrable swamp, where tl
itrango uuchile-like experience might ha
ueeu closed by n death of unspeakable hr
ror; but causing it to descend as softly af
jird alights, on a spot where human cu
md pity availed it.
Tho sun had not yet risen, but tho mor
ng twilight had come, when the little g
looking over the edgo of tho car, saw t
lear old earth coming near-"rising town
them," she said. But when tho car ste
ped, to her great disappointment, it was i
iU tho ground, bul caught fual in tuo it
most branches of a tree. Yet BIIO saw th

[lim tho good nows, and together th
watched aud waited for deliverance, huggi
such other for joy and for warmth; for tL
were very cold.
Farmer Burton, who lived in a lon
lionse on the edgo of his own privi
prairie, was a famous sleeper in general, 1
m this particular morning ho awoke bef<
the dawn, and, thongh ho turned o
burned nfain, he could Bleep no moro. I
lt last, ho said to his good wife, whom
liad kindly awakened to inform beroi
unaccountable insomnolonce, "It's no ti
['ll just get up and dress, and havo a lc
a tu . comet."
Tho next that worthy woman heard fr
tier wakeful spouse, was a frightened si
mous to tho outer door. It seems, that
sooner did he step forth from his hoi
than his eyes fell on a strange, port?n tous
shape, hanging in a large pear-tree, about j
twenty yards distant. He could see in it no
likeness to anything earthly, and he half
fancied it might be the comet, who, having
put oat his light, bad come down there to
perch. In his fright and perplexity, bo did
what every wiso man would do. in a like ex?
tremity; ho called on bis valiant wife. Re?
inforced by her, he drew near tho tree,
cautiously reconnoitering. Surely, never
pear-tree bore such fruit!
Suddenly there descended from the thing
a plaintive, trembling little voice, ,fPleaso
take us down. We are very cold!"
Then a second little voice, "And hungry,
too. Please tuke ns down!"
"Why, who ure you? Aud where are
The first littlo voice said: "We are Mr.
Harwood's little boy und girl, and wo nre
lost in a balloon."
Tho second littlo voice said: "It's us, and
wo run nod away with a balloon. Pleuse tuke
Dimly comprehending tho situation, tho
farmer getting hold of a dangling rope,
succeeded in pulling down tho balloon.
He first lifted out little Johnnie, who ran
rapidly a few yards towards tho house, then
turned round, and stood for a fow moments,
curiously surveying tho balloon. Thc faith?
ful littlo sister was so chilled and exhausted
that she bad to be carried into the house,
where, trembling and sobbing, she told her
Before sun-rise, a mounted messenger was
despatched lo the Harwood home, with glad
tidings of great joy. He reached it in the
afternoon, and a few hours later the chil?
dren themselves arrived, in state, with ban?
ners and music, and conveyed in a covered
bay-wagon and four.
Joy-bells were rung in tho neighboring
town, and in tho farmer's brown house the
happiest family ou the continent thanked
God that night.
It would seem that this comet bad some
occult maddening influence ou balloons, for
during its appearance there occurred in
another Western State an involuntary aseen
sion, similar to the one I have related; but
moro tragical in its termination.
Au aeronaut while, if I remember rightly,
repairing the net-work of bis balloon, was
scated on a slight wooden cross-piece, sus
pended under it; the car having been re
moved, und tho balloon being held in its
position, a few feet from the ground, by
merely a rope in tho hand of au assistant
From a too careless grasp, this rope escaped,
and in an instant the gigantic bubble shot
upward, carrying tho lerounut on his frail
support; a rider more helpless than Ma?
zeppa bound to his Ukraine steed; a voyager
moro hopeless than a ship-wrecked sailor
afloat on a spar in mid-oceau.
The balloon rose rapidly, but unsteadily,
swaying and pitching in the'evening wind
As long os it remained in sight, tho form of
theierouaut could bo distiugushed, swing?
ing beneath it. And, as ho was known to
be a man of uncommon nerve and presence
of mind, it was boped that even from bis
dizzy perch, he might manage to operate on
the valve, or nt least to puncture a small
hole iu the balloon, and thus effect a descent.
But such efforts, if he made any, were vain,
as, for many days and nights, there was
anxious inquiry aud patient search over a
wide extent of country, with no result. We
gave him up. Only wifely love hoped on,
and looked and waited. At last, in a wild
spot, the wreck of the balloon was found,
aud that was all.
Still, wifely love hoped on, until, a month
or two later, some children nutting in a
wood many miles nway from where the
balloon was found, discovered, half-buried
in tho ground, a strange dark mass, that
looked like a heap of old clothes, but there
was something shapeless and fearful holding
It is thought that the aeronaut parted com?
pany from bis balloon by loosening his
bold on the cords above him, in desperate
efforts to open the valve; but ho may, after
whirling in swift vortices, or plunging and
mounting through cloudy abysses of air,
bavo become unnerved by the awful silence,
of tho upper night, by tho comet's fearful
companionship, by whelming immensity
and infinity, and wearily let go his hold, to
