presented olaborate cal sanations showing
that it was theoretically possible to reach
the pole by balloon, but tie pppsent pro
jectors havo adopted plans different from
shose of cjtber.
Their balloon is to be a porfdet sphere
with a diameter of nearly ICO feet, and
containing about 20,000 cubio yurils, and
this is to bo inflated with pure hydrogen
gas, which will insure a JiftiDfj power of
10,500 kilograms (about 80,000 pounds). The
material is two thicknesses of the finest Chi
nese Eilk,varnished with a new preparation
of their own invention, which will, they
think, render it absolutely safe. So far
tho design is old, but they will have a
Kmallor balloon inside of tho large ono,
cigar Bhapftd in its ordinary form, but with
aexibta t.id; and to nil 1 his tucy will havo
a small generator in the car below, and
with it an automatic arrangement register
ing every variation in tho force of tho gas.
As this smaller interior balloon can be ex
panded and contracted at will, they expect
by it to correct all tho donations of tho
larger globe.
Tho deviations are calculated upon tho
established facts that for each ribe of 2.S0D
feet or thereabout the rarity of tue air in
creases sufficiently to nullify one-tenth of
the lifting power of the gas, and many
minor variations must be expected from
changes of temperature. In addition
twenty little globes, or balloouttes, will be
attached to tho rim of the car, which can
be filled at will. The car is to be a wonder
fully complete structure, capable of ac
commodating five niBn and eight dogs,
with provisions for a month, and water
casks, which are to bo provented from
freezing by chemical coating. To it aro to
be attached a sled, a boat, guido rope and
other necessary articles, and in it are to be
photographic and other scientific appar
atus. These particulars indicate tho plan. Ar

with tlrd or boat, and proceed as before. If
not they will try st yorac other point until,
if necessary, they have surveyed and map

But they are confident no insuperable

the interval is much less.
The unknown north teams to possess a
tcrriblo fascination for many minds, and
tha records made by daring men in trying
to explore it are enough to give the ordinary
reader a chill. It is certain that Norwegians
and Icelanders sailed far up the west coast
of Greenland over P80 years ago and soon
had flourishing colonies there and in Spits
bergen. In 1390 the Zeno brothers, Vene
tians, went north of the most northern Ice
landic settlements, and in 1497 John and
Sebastian Cabot got as ar north as G7 degs.
before deciding that they could not sail
around America by that way. The idea of
a northwest passage to Asia was then
taken up and pursued with great ardor for
over three centuries. Expedition after ex
pedition failed, crew after crew perished,
but new men were always found eager to
make the attempt.
In 1533 Sir Hugh "Willoughby sailed for
Nova Zembla, but he and all his men were
lost. In 16S5-b7 Davis explored the strait
that bears his name. Next llcndrik Ilud
son beat all prerious records by sailing up
to latitude 60 ded., but on a subsequent
expedition was lost. All the inlets of
Hudson's bay were searched by English
men, who insisted that it had an opening
to the Paciiic, and the Russians struggled
as desperately from the west, but all failed
and many perished. In lS0-23 Von
"Wrangell made his celebrated sledge ex
pedition and reported "an open polar sea."
This set all the explorers on a new tack.
As lata as 1743 the British parliament
offered a reward of 33,000 to any one who
should discover a pa&sage westward from
Hudson's bay.
After a dozen expeditions had failed
Capt. Parry and Sir John Franklin took
up the work of searching for the northwest
pjissage. From 1&18 to 1&18 they and their
numerous associates woro tho heroes of
Arctic exploration, and Sir John and all
his men became its martyrs. Capt. Parry
invented the boat slclge, with which ho

Sir John Franklin and the many search

Private and public expeditions of every
kind multiplied till tho wholo northern
coast of America was explored, and still
new and more eager projectors came for
ward to seek the north pole. On May 18,
1P61, Dr. Isaac I. Hayes and one compan
ion, ncrr Knorr, reached a point of land in
latitude 81 degs. 35 min. and longitude 70
degs. SO min., but could go no farther, as
the rotten ice and water would support
neither boat nor sledges. Yet Dr. Hayes
insists that he saw btretchiug far away tho
open polar sea, and in it a mountain, "the
most northern known land on the globe."
2d any other expeditions got nearly as far
and finally Capt. Charles Francis
Hall, of the "American Arctic oxpedition,"
on Ang. 21, 1871, reached latitude S2 degs.

respect was tho most successful; for on
tho 13th of May, 1&S3, Lieut. Lockwood and
Sergt. Braiuerd of that expedition reached
Lockwood island in latitude 83 degs. 24
min. and longitudo 44 degs. 5 min tho
most northern point ever attained. Far to
tho northwest they saw what they named
Cape Iiobert Lincoln, but could not
reach it.
Dr. Isaac Nansen, who crossed Greenland
two years ago, also proposes to try the
balloon scheme in 1892, but on a different
and much smaller scale than that of tho
He will go through Behring strait in
June, thence westward lo the mo-t north

proceed with sledges and boats, using a i

of him. In August or September he ex
pects to locate on the floating ice, and
thinks at that season it will take him di

of every evil thought or thing that ever
brought anguish to the brain of a wronged
or overcredulous human being.
Sometimes it culminates in murder;
sometimes in scandalous litigation. Often
it is causeless, but in the larger number of
instances it is based upon the shameful
foundation of detected wrongdoing.
Tho strangest and most shocking ensa
of jealousy that h;u come to public notice
in recent day3 is that of Sarah Ann Mc
Mullen, a girl 17 years of age, residing at
Akron, N. Y. It seems that this young
woman, whose occupation was that of a
domestic servant, had conceived a wild,
unreasoning aud unreciprocated passion
for her employer, a man of tho name of
Conners. This passion took the active and
insane form of jealousy of Mis. Conners,
and to show her hatred of her unoHendini
' mistress tho McMullen girl ono uay not
long ago beguiled to a trestle bridge Mrs
Connors' daughter Ell.i, aged 11, and her
little playmate, Delia Brown, aged G.
It is not known that 3he had any grudgo
against the Brown girl, who seems to have
been the chance victim of a crazy woman's
freak, but bo that a.s it may, Miss McMul-
, len, after enticing tho children to the cen-
j tral part of tho trestle, threw them to tho
bed of the creek, seventy feet lielow. Sho
j then returned to the village, bade good-by
to ncr menus ant gomj to another oriugo
jumped off with suicidal intent. Her con
tact with cold water evidently brought her
to her senses.
At any rate, she called for help aud was
rescued unharmed. The Conners girl was
killed by her terrible fall, but, remarkable
to relate, the Brown child received no in-
jury save from shock. It is almost super
fluous to add that Miss McMullen is now a
prisoner charged with murder.
Equally tragic is tho case reported from
Kansas City. David A. Greever was a
wealthy and well known stockman of that
place who had figured of Lite in various
fceusational proceedings, chief among
which was a divorce suit instituted by his
One afternoon recently he went to the
Hotel Andrews and entered tho apart
ments occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Clifford. Mrs. Clifford was alone at tho
time, and, as she declines, received insult
ing propositions from her visitor. While
tho two were engaged in excited conversa
tion Mr. Clifford entered and attacked
Greever. The latter i-iu into the hall, fol
lowed by the irate husoand, who fired
three shots at the fleeing stockman, all of
which reached their merle, and from whoso
effects Mr. Greever soon afterward died.
I or was tho culmination of a futile attempt
I at blackmail. Mrs. Clifford's storv of tho
tragic affair, as told by her to a reporter
for ono of the Kansas City papers, has
some dramatic touches about it. She
claims that while sitting by the window
reading there was a kopek at ths door and
she said "Come in." Mr. Greever, to whom
she had been introduced by Mrs. Ball, the
landlady, and whom she ban met several
times at the table, entered, and throwing
his hat and overcoat on the leunge, stepped
up close to her.
"Why, Mr. Greever." she exclaimed,
"whom do you wish to se, Mr. Clifford or
"I want to sec you. td aIocc," she sys
he replied, and adjed, 'Tve been waiting

"Go away." she told him, "for aiy has

plied; "I am as big as you and him pet to

Greever had grappled with her husband,
who was trying to draw a pistol, but the
latter was too quick and fired a shot, when
Greever unlocked the door and darted into
the hall, closely feliowed by Clifford, pistol
in hand. He iirad twice more at the flee
ing man, while bsing held by Bartender
Fagin. Mrs. Clifford sank into a rocker,
where she still sat when her husband re
entered, and then she explained to him
how Greever came into the room.
"I was still talking to him," she said,
"when a policeman cams and Charley gave
him his pistol end snrrsndered and was
taken away. I don't know how bad that
man is bhot, but I hope he will die; he de
serves to for acting toward me a3 he did.
"Why, I didn't know him at all, only as a
boarder. Mrs. Ball introduced him to me
in her room, and in the two weeks we have
been here I met him onlv at meal time."
The scene at Greever's deathbed was a
sorrowful one. By hjs side stood the wife
from whom he had been estranged while
he made the following ante-mortem state
ment, to the coroner:
"This was a blackmailing scheme. I
drove up to the Hotel Andrews this after
noon with George Keck, of tho Fish &
Keck Commission company, and Fred
Tainter. We went into the saloon and
ordered some cocktails. Then I went up
stairs into the hotel while the two men
waited for me. I wanted to see Mrs. Ball,
the proprietress of the house. She was not
in, and I there saw 3Irs. Clifford, wife of
the man who shot me. I asked Mrs. Clif
ford where Mrs. Ball was, and she said
she was out and asked me to come in and
have a Beau.
"I did so. Wo talked for a few minutes,
and I then started to go away. When she
insisted upon mystajing I said, 'No; my
time is up, and 1 must go.' Just then
Clifford stopped into the open window, re
volver in hand, and said. Ton
, throw up your hands!' I said, 'Xo, I
won't throw up my hands.' Clifford then
fired the shot which struck me in the back,
and fired four other shota. I think the
whole thing was a blackmailing scheme
planned by a man named Charle3 Fagin
and another named Smith. I can account
for it in no other way except that thoj
wished to get money out of me."
It now remains, as said before, for the
courts to decide whether Clifford's mur
derous act was tnnt of an insanely jealous
husband or of a baffled blackmailer.
A suit for divoice, apparently the result
of mutual distrust aud lack of domestic
harmony, is now pending in Now York
city. The plaintiff is Mrs. Henrietta
Brinckerhoff, who seeks her freedom on
statutory grounds. Her husband. Daniel
D. Brinckerliotf, lias recently filed an an
swer to his wife's swern charges, iu which
he accuses her of the most shocking mis
conduct. If half tho allegations advanced
by either party to the suit are proven when
the cae comes to trial the affair will ob
tain permanent fame in tho records of
legal scandals.
