Mrs. Julian 1 Thomas of New York.
'ho recently made Lor lirst ascension
In a balloon at I'Utslield, Mass., de
scribed her sixty mile liight above the
clouds as follows to a New York World
"The most Interesting thing about
the trip," began Mrs. Thomas iu relat
ing her adventures, "was the different
kinds of weather we had. When we
stjfrted the sky Mas overcast. We
went up, up until Ave were iu the
clouds. It was like lieing In a heavy
white mist. Look up, look down, look
about, we could see nothing. There
were we. Dr. Thomas, Mr. Levee and
myself and the ear ami the bag of the
balloon above us. Resides these ob
jects there was absolutely nothing else
to see. The Sensation was weird and
wonderful. This was the time when
Mr. Levee climbed up on the edge of
the basket and up Into the rigging to
disentangle the valve ropes.' No, I did
not feel alarmed then, except for Mr.
Levee. It did seem risky, when what
a fall would have meant makes me
shudder. But there was nothing by
which to judge distance and convey
the Impression that to fall would be
a frightful thing.
"Mr. Levee found one thing for us to
look at. By closely watching, by look
ing for It, in the mist one could see
fine particles, as of microscopic snow
flakes. One never would have noticed
this phenomenon at all unless It had
been pointed out, but once seen we dis
covered It for ourselves when next we
were enveloped in cloud.
"Then we got above the clouds.
There was cloud above us and cloud
below. All about were the clouds at a
distance. They looked like huge moun
tains of snow. Beneath us the clouds
looked not like a billovy sea of white
vapor, such as one would imagine from
looking up at them, but n vast level of
white, like a sheet extending as far as
the eye reached. From the 'mountains
of snow' far away I could see from
time to time huge blackish balls roll
away other waves of clouds.
"Now the sun broke through the
clouds above us and painted the scene
all the colors of the rainbow. That is a
6ight I never can forget. It was grand
and wonderful, simply beyond any
power of mine to put into words. And
then another thing even more beauti
ful happened. There came a rift in the
clouds leneatb us, and the sun's rays
shone down through this. The lower
rift was a beautiful deep, bright blue
at lirst, and through this we could at
length see the earth. It was strange to
see the land once more and not know
where we were. Next we came down
through the clouds and below them
and after a time came out into clear
weather, with the sun shiniug upon us.
Finally we landed in a heavy rain."
Mrs. Thomas was delighted to be
shown one of the pictures she had
taken from the builoon car, which had
come out much more clearly than any
her husband took, although she is in
experienced with the camera and hovis
"That is just lovely!" she exclaimed.
"I am tickled to death that I have ac
tually taken a picture of the earth
from a balloon. I can only say where
we were approximately. We had Just
come down from the clouds to recon
uoiter, as it were. Beneath us were
some puddles of water, as I thought,
until I was told-by Mr. Levee that they
were good sized lakes. We could not
tell whereabouts we were, but it was

"That was one of -the weird sensa
tions of the balloon voyage, the 'dou't-know-where-Im-atness'
of it all. The
thought came to me: Where are we?
tlow and when are we to get down?
Of course I knew how the landing
Would be brought about, and I "felt no
'anxiety about it. On the contrary, as
the earth came nearer I had a feeling
just like that when your boat ap
proaches the shore. It was a feeling of
confidence and safety.
"In the balloon I felt no wind. Nat
urally, for we were moving with the
wind. Hardly a breath of air fanned
my cheek. There was no sensation of
Increased heat or cold.
"At One time when Ave were above
the clouds I heard a noise that startled
me. it was a rushing roar like that of
Niagara. I said we must be over a
waterfall, and a large, one, too. and
asked Mr. Levee to make us descend
so as to see it. My husband at the
same time thought of a storm and
thought that a high wind, with rain,
was threatening us. But Mr. Levee
see what experience does told us
something more wonderful than either
of us had supposed. The roar was that
of the wind In a forest beneath us.
You ma3r have heard the same noise in
the woods, but its sound was carried
up to us in the stillness with a far
more impressive effect.
"Fear? Absolutely none; not at any
time. I was too busy. I made notes,
took pictures of the car and of my hus
band and Mr. Levee. The notes 1 shall
write up some time. The pictures
there Is a funny thing to tell about
that. To take pictures of each other in
that narrow car we had to stand at op
posite sides and lean far back over the
edge to get the object and the camera
In focus at least six feet apart." Mrs.
Thomas smiled unconcernedly when
she said this. And she had done this
at a point pretty near a mile above the
earth In a wicker basket. It was sug
gested to her that she would not have
cared to lean back of the parapet on
her own roof, perhaps fifty feet above
the sidewalk, to take a picture.
"Quite so," said Mrs. Thomas, "One
lost all sensation of fright, that dread
ful involutary fear of falling which
one feels in looking down from even a
moderately high window. As the bal
loon neared the grounds that sensation
of height did come to us. Dr. Thomas
says be felt it considerably, but then I
was not looking, but holding on.
"As It was, when we came down the
car bumped against the tops of trees
fifty feet high, and a fall would have
been unpleasant. I didn't see much of
our landing, for I was protecting my
face from being scratched by the
twigs, but in a short time the car aud.
the gas bag were Hat on the ground,
with hardly a bump, and we were
rolled out on the ground like dice from
box. Mr. Levee is wonderfully clev
er, as that landing showed.
"Yes, one can do pretty much as one
pleases In a balloon car. You are not
expected to walk around much, for
changing from side to side 'joggles' the
gas out of the bag, and Mr. Levee had
to ask Dr. Thomas, who is very ener
getic and always wanting to do some
thing, to stand more quietly. Another
thing you must not do is throw things
out when the balloon is ascending. It
Increases the upward speed too fast.
We did not even throw away the rem
nants of our luncheon of sandwiches
until we were descending. Then we
threw out everything we could spare,
even the luncheon."
Mrs. Thomas is now looking forward
to frequent trips in the big balloon
which is being made in Paris toDr.
Thomas order. It is expected to arrive
iu New York about May 1. In due time
Dr. and Mrs. Thomas expect to Invite
their friends the car will hold five per
sonsto take a sail in the upper air as
casually as others offer a ride in a
brougham or a seat on a road coach.
"EFFECT OF A GREAT REVIVAL
Strlkinar Scene Witnessed at m G
R. Meeting In Philadelphia.
The remarkable way In which Phila
delphia is being moved by the Torrey
and Alexander revival Is shown by the
large number of new members who are
being received into the churches of the
city. One church recently received 101
members, another 106 and another t6.
These figures are Just an Indication of
the Way in which churches throughout
the city are receiving far more acces
sions than they have had for many
Not only in churches, but even in un
expected places, one constantly hears of
how the revival spirit is working. The
other night Mr. Alexander told how
striKtng scenes were recently witness
ed at a G. A. R. meeting. He said:
"A lady came home to the house
where I am boarding and said: 'There
is a G. A. It. man over at our church,
and he told me, with the tears running
down his cheeks, about something that
happened at the G. A. R. He said that
iu the post where he belongs they Start
ed In to have a supper, but Just. before
they started In some one said, "Let's
have grace." They had never toad It
before, and after it was over one of
the officers got up and said: "I want to
t'.l you something. I have been going
ti the Torrey-Alexander meetings, and
I have changed my life. I am going to
live for Christ from now on." He
made a good talk, and before they
were through nearly everybody in the
room was shedding tears. The man at
the organ was a Christian man, and lte
jumped up and said, "I never was ho
happy In all my life!" A stranger next
got up and said, "I am not a Christian,
but this man's talk is going to make
me a better man all my life." '
. "I cever wanted to be elected Into
the G. A. R. before," said Mr. Alexan
der, "but I wish they would elect me
Into that post."

A STORY OF WEBSTER
ONE OCCASION WHEN DANIEL WAS
n Incident Which Shocked and Sur
prised Htm Into Tears The Admi
ral inn, the loyalty and 'the Gener
osity of Ills Circle of Friends.
The following incident in the life of
Daniel Webster was related to the
writer by the late Joshua Seward:
Mr. Seward came to Woburu from
Boston in the early seventies and
bought a farm, where he lived until
his death in 1SS5. lie was a native of
the New Hampshire "Peace City," from
which place he came to Boston iu early
manhood and later engaged in 'the liv
ery business off School street. He was
a genial, social, active young man, and
in a short time many of the business
and professional men of the city were
his friends and patrons. Daniel Web
ster, then In the fullness of his mas
terly manhood, was his particular
friend and most favored patron. One
year Webster early engaged to deliver
the Fourth of July oration in the city.
A public procession was tnen an im
portant feature of the celebration, and
the orator of the day was the chief
person of distinction In the parade. In
those days there were no four wheeled
vehicles for convenience or for pleas
ure. A chaise was the proper carriage
ror gentlemen to use. Webster was
popular and proud as popular. He saw
no chaise In the city as good as he de
sired to apiear in on that important
occasion, and therefore he ordered one
to be built by the principal carriage
maker of the city (Sargent, I think it
was. to be ready for use on that day.
In the morning of the Fourth he ap
peared at Seward's stable oflSee and
requested Seward to go to the carriage
shop and get the chaise he had ordered.
Seward harnessed a horse and went to
the carriage shop as directed and told
the proprietor he had come for Mr.
Webster's chaise. The proprietor in
firm nnd measured tones that could
not be misunderstood asked, "Did Mr.
Webster send the money to pay for the
In relating this to me Seward said:
"I was never so astonished in my life!
I should have been less surprised if he
had raised his fist and knocked me
down. I had no thought that there was
a man living who had ever heard of
the great Webster, the godlike Daniel,
who would or Who could have denied
him any request it was possible to
craut. I could only say. 'He sent no
money by me.' 'Then,' said the pro
prietor, 'tell him he can have the chaise
when be sends the money to pay lor u
nml not till then.' " Seward 6aid he
was never in such a dilemma in all his
life. He could not go back and tell that
great man, whom he adored, that he
could not have the chaise till he paid
for it. And yet he must go back aud
tell him something. But what could he
tell him? Finally, after much thought
nml stmlv It occurred to hin that he
had a new chaise which he would offer
to Webster and tell him that the var
nish on the one he had ordered was not
yet hard and that it would be liable to
injure if taken out In the heat ami dust
Of that public day. Webster met Sew
ard at the door when he returned, and

Seward was telliuf? him the story he
had Invented on the way home. Web
ster made no reply, but accepted Sew

About a week later Webster tame
again and said to Seward, "I think the
varnish on that chaise is bard now,
aud j-oii may go down and get It."
Seward said: "With a heavy heart I
harnessed a horse and went asaiu to
the shop. I know I should not get the
chaise, and I was not disappointed. In
the same manner I was asked the same
question as before. I could not Invent
another story that would be credible
and was therefore compelled to
back and tell hiin the truth." Webster
was Impatiently awaitinj; Seward's re
turn, and when in hailing distance he
called to Seward: "Where is the
chaise? What is the trouble?" Seward
approached him more closely and in
tones so low that no one could over
hear him replied, "He told me to tell
you that 3-ou could nave tne cnaise
