A SEA ABOVE THE CLOUDS.
Extraordinary SupiTHtitlon Once Preva
lent In KiiRlnml.
The cnrimis snpersfiMon that there is
an ocean :il ove the clout's is illustrated
by the. following strange story ly an
old English writer: "One Sunday the
people of a certain village wire coming
out of church on a thick, cloudy day,
when they saw the anchor of a ship
hooked to one of the tombstones tho
cable, which was tightly stretched,
hanging down from the air. The people
were astonished, and while tin y were
consulting ahout it suddenly they saw
tho ropo move as though some one la
bored to pull up the anchor. U10 an
chor, however, still held fast hy the
stone, and a great noise was heard in
the air, like tho shouting of sailors.
Presently a sailor was seen sliding dow n
the cable for the purpose of unfixing
tiie anchor. When he had just loosened
it, the villagers seized hold of him, and
whilo in their hands he quickly died,
just as though he hud been drowned.
"About an hour alter the sailors
above, hearing no more r f their com
rade, cut the cable and sailed awny. In
memory of this cxtraordinaiy event tho
people of the village inado tho hinges
of the church di.ors out of the iron of
the anchor. " It is further stated that
these hinges "are still to he seen there,"
a bit of evidence much like Munchau
sen's rope wherewith ho once climbed
to the moon. If yon douLted tho story,
you were confronted with the rope.
Theie is imoth'r (nicer talo about
this aerial ocean. "A merchant of Bris
tol," it is said, "set sail with his cargo
for Ireland. Some time after, while his
family were at supper, a knife sudden
ly fell in through a window on tho ta
ble. Win 11 tho merchant returned and
saw the knife, he declared it to ho his
own and said that on such' a day, at
such an hour, whilo sailing in an un
known part of the sea, ho dropped the
knife ovci board, and the day and the
hour were found to he exactly the time
when it fell tlnough the window." All
of which was once implicitly believed
by many and regarded as incontroverti
ble proof of tho existence of a sea above
the sky. One is at a loss to conjecture
how that "unknown part of the sea"
connected with the rest of it. A phys
ical geography showing this would be
no small ruriosity. Boston Post.
