they always wIhIicO to go again. A num

cation of Professor VIe, the aeronaut,
who, with Professor bebroeder, is san
guine oi a sate voyage across the Atlan

money upon the invention. In 1872,
Sobroeder state, be made an ascension

structed, from liruzll.
The ship portion of the balloon, the
propeller, etc.. is constructed of wire
about three-sixteenths of an inch in di
ameter. U bo feet in length, 0 feet high
uud 8 feet wide. Its lltliuir capacity will
be (or ten tons. The balloon portion,
which has not yet been adjusted, will be
CI feet high, S5 feet in circumference, and
05 feet In diameter. It Is constructed ot
l.SOOyanls (3 cases) ot cambric, from
which lA'M ropes will depend, and bold
the ship. The pushing and pulling pro
pellers to be attached to tin; now and
stern of the ship are 10 feel long and 3
in height. These propcllora will be cov
ered with canvas, as also thu sides and
top ot the ship. The ship will be com
pleted about November 1 proximo, when
Protessor Schroeder will undertake dally
ascensions. The ship is to be worked by
a crew of elcbt men. and Schroeder says
lie can readily steer llthrough thechang
ing currents of the air a well as a mari
ner does his vesel upon the coast. No

llrst trip, whkh will be from Baltimore
to New York. 200 miles, which he thinks
ho will make in three hours. He ha, be

iieet l'rom the inline riven It. u dance
iiDdit these l'racile objects. It Is execu
ted In this wl-e : The dancer, dressed lu
u corxe and very ehort ekirt, citrries a
willow wheel of moderate diameter fas
tened horizontally upon the top of her
;ad. Around tills wiieel mreaus are
fastened, equally distant from eaeli other,
and at the end of each of these threads is
a liu noose, which is kept oiien by n
irlM bead. Thus equipped, the youii,
irirl comes toward the spectators
with n basket lull ot egjrs, which

tion, tlirovvs it from her in such a way a$

ing of the dancer produces a centrifugal
iVhc. which fitretches the thread out

can the dance be stopped? There is but
unit w.iv that Is. to remove the eggs in
tho way In which they have been put In
place. This operation is ny lar tne more
delicate ol the two. It Is necessary that
the dancer, by a single motion, exact and
unerring, should take hold ot the egg,
and remove it from the noose. A slnjjlu
false motion ol the hand, the least inter
ference with one of the threads, and the
general ntrangement Is suddenly broken,
ami the wholo performance disastrously
ended. At last all tho eggs aro succes
fully removed; the dancer suddenly

Best Method or Wlnlrring Bees.
From the Itural New Yorker.
A. Solbburg, of Camnrgo, Illinois,
who has been unusually successful In
wintering bees, contributes his method
in the American Bet Journal :
The practical feature In successfully
wintering btes Is to so pack them
for winter quarters that there will be no
coullict with nature's lavvs, or, In other
words, that a dry, warm temperature
may be secured.
liow can this be done?
1. By placing the hive in a good, warm,
dry cellar, or u house built exclusively
for that purpose. And when deposited
I always raise the lid a quarter of an
Inch on one side or end of the hive, par
tlallr closlnir the rtv-hole so u to ex
clude mice. Tho mercury should range
at about 45 degrees Fahrenheit. When
the proper season rolls around, put
them up immediately after they have flown
out, or In a very few daya after, and
leave them undisturbed in midnight
darkness, and all will be right In the
to secure inc ties rett enii in outuoor
winter. If thu Wive, 1 large, holding more
umn me requisite amount 01 winter
stores, It must be contracted to a proper
size, and ventilated at tint top, so a to let
tne nioi.turo escape, anil yet secure tne
animal heat of the bees. This is easily
done. Iteniove tho surplus frames lrom
one side of the hive, slipping in a divid
ing board, filling in between it and the
outer wall with leaves or straw.
Cover tho frames with a piece
ol cloth of any description.
llrst laving a few small strips ot hoard
across the frames to give the bees a pas
or passes over the lops of the frames un
der thu cloth. Now, put the second
story on and fill It with leaves, straw, or
some other fine, warm material and place
the lid on. contracting tne iiy-noie to
about one inch, and it tho swarm Is very
strong raise thu lid one-fourth inch 011
one side to ury tno moisture mat col

will so speedily remove this cause as

in our judgment, a benefactor's service,
