French Acronnat'a Acconnt of aLong
Pittance Contest Over the Main
land of Enrope.
During the night we were busy try
ing to keep our equilibrium, going
neither too hijrh nor too low, and won
dering where our rivals were, writes
JC Godard, In MeClure's Magazine.
At seven o'clock next morning we
were over Coblentz, and had already
made 500 kilometers. At eight o'clock
the Influence of the bright morning
sun upon the volume of gaB in our big
balloon carried us very quickly to a
height of more than 4,000 meters. A
four eapnnrl,! lntpr wn.wurn dflUl7htpil
tn kIM hi "rjntinrf" hllt'n. little)
ahead of us, nnd running in a course
parallel to ours. This was a race, in
deed. All day we were able to travel
ton-ether, each of us undergoing, in
proportion to our volume of gs, the
alterations of dilation and condensa
tion. Little clouds, muKking the sun,
instantly reduced the volume of our
spheres and compelled us to throw
over ballast. When the sun came out
again it warmed the great balls, of
gas and so added to tho volume of
dilation that several times wo were
compelled to let out gns In order to
escape rising to a dangerottB altitude.
Late in the afternoon both balloons
had risen to between 0.000 and 7,000
meters, which was quite ns high as
any of us dared to go. Before we de
scended to a lower level we saw the
"Centaure" fnr below us, manipulat
ing its guide rope along the surface 1
of the earth. Suddenly our rival shot
upward rapidly, nnd wo saw no more
of him. We were now in the neigh-'
borhood of Brestan or Poscn, and wo
were made very snd by the disappear
ance of our ballast, of which only
about 00 kilos remained. Night was
eomlf ngs.n, but we were determined
to stay afloat as lou us pe'r.ible. A3
we passed over the Germno-llussian
frontier four shots were ilred nt us,
probably by customs iiii.peelnr.-, who
thought we might be smuggling. c
heard the whistle of the bullets, but,
fortunately, the "Suint Louis" wns
not hit. .TuBt before dark we were
making splendid speed; our instru
ments showed 70 kilometers per hour,
due east. We sighed for more bnlln&t.
But now behind us we could see a
tempest forming, with lightning nnd
thunder. We had only 30 kilos of bul
lnst left, and if the rain should over
tnke us our balloon would absorb
thriee that weight of wuter, and we
should be carried down to earth
whether we wished or not, und prob
nbly in the niont awkward of spots.
We had no desire to descend in a for
est, and so we began spying out, as
best we could in tho gathering storm,
a clear space In whiuh to ullght. One
appeared just behind n forest. M. Bol
san pulled the valvo rope, und despite
the violence of the wind the "Satnt
Louis" came to the ground gently and
with only flvo meters of dragging.
Some peasants enme running up, and
wo sent one of them for a wagon,
while the others aided us in emptying
.the balloon of tho remaining gas
only 1,300 or 1,400 meters cube were
left out of the 3,000 with which we
started and by midnight we had nr
rlved nt n villnge. We were given milk
nnd black bread lo eat, and a hay loft
to sleep in. Next morning early a
good-natured gendnrme roused us
with the explanation that, as we had
no passports, he was compelled to
escort us to the police authorities in
n near-by town. The police, amiable
but firm, declined to let us go without
orders from their superiors, and it
wns nine o'clock that night before the
telegraph brought permission for us
to return to Paris.

THE JEWS IN GREECE.
Fall IHkIHn im Citizen Arc Denied
' tho Itacc In KitiK CScurKc'n
Whatever may have been the con
ncctiotw between Greeks and Jews
in the past, tho points of contact
between them at the present day are
comparatively few, for the Jewish
population in the kingdom ot King
George nppcors to bo not only small,
but stationary. Its numbers, which
in 1891 are glicn nt .ri,":)2, nro. re
turned in 1001 as n.SOO, or a net in
crease of eight in ten years. Smnll
ness of numbers need not affect the
natural interest which English Jews
feel in their Oreelc brethren, and par
tieulnrly English Jews, for it was
lnrgely owing to the efforts of tho
British government that (3 recce be
came tin independent kingdom. More,
over, the fact that the Ionian Islands
were a direct gift from thin country
to Orcecc Intensifies tho interest ol
English Jews in the fate of their
brethren in that part of the Orock
kingdom. It is true thut the hand
ful of Greek Jews have no legal or
state made disabilities like the .Tews
of Kussin and Iloumania, says the
Jewish Messenger. In principle tho
fullest equality obtains. But in prac
tice, even so ardent an apologist for
the Greek government as Dr. Bellell
has to admit that it would be "pre
posterous" to argue that "the Jews
actually enjoy in Greece full rights."
Wljcn the premier of a country
publicly declares that all Jews ought
to be put back 50 j'cars it is idle to
contend that the Jews of that conn
try nro emancipated in fact, what,
ever they may be in name. The truth
of the matter seems to be that in
emancipating the Jews the Greek au
thorities, 11 Ice tho authorities in
France, were considerably in nd
vance of the sentiment of the people
us a whole. This popular backward
ness found brutal expression in the
ritual excesses some years ago ex
cesses which drove Jews away from
tho Ionian islands, where they had
once enjoyed the fullest liberty un
der the British and whose offcetg
have even now not entirely vanished.
It seems ns though the long enslave
ment of a people tends to crush out
pits Ideas of'liberty nnd to make of Jt
n tyrant when it in turn becomes
free. The case of Itoumnnln, per
haps, is a much more striking illus
tration of this than that of Greece.
Still, the decorations conferred by
the Greek government on several
Jews may betoken the development
of a better feeling toword the Jews.
In the ordinary course of things it
would only bo natural to anticipate
the evolution of the ideas of a peo
ple like the Greeks In the direction
of liberty of thought and freedom of

In spite of these qualities of easily

'I "if ',uimn may often sutler front

the home atmosphere is almost al

that a little true politeneivi .on the

with u warm recognition; tou rare
ly appeal to the Japanese in vain.
They are as quick to respond to am
act of reui kindness as they are t'o
resent an act which lios a tinge of
urroguuee. Our government allowed
several transports with returning vol
unteers to stop at Yokohama, and so
hundreds of American soldiers visited
that city and Tokio. One of themt
hired a bicycle and was taking a'
ride about the streets of Yokohama
when he run (.own an, elderly Jap
anese man. The soldier rang his bell
several times, but the Japanese ap
parently paid no attention to it, and
tho American found himself prompt
ly arrested and taken to court, whera
he was lined ten "yen" (live dollars).
Ho protested that he had done every
thing possible to inert the accident,
and asked why the man made no at
tempt to get out of the way. Thol
policeman then told him that tho.
man was blind. The soldter looked!
dazed for a minute, then felt in hi.i
pocket nnd brought out a ten-dollar,
bill. "Here," he said, "it's the lusti
I've got, but ho oan have it," and!
lie turned it over to the blind man.;
The Japanese were deeply touched,!
and thut samo day a delegation or
