They had been married a month and the

Across the Ocean in a Balloon.
To make a voyage across the ocean to
Europe in a balloon is an enterprise pro
jected by Professor Samuel A. King, the
aeronaut, and several financial backers,
to take place from Philadelphia some
time during next summer. The project
is not yet definitely assured, although
Professor King has been promised the
funds necessary for a complete prepara
tion for the transatlantic journey. The
expense that would be attached to such
an enterprise is estimated to be about
$30,000 or $25,000.
Should Professor King accomplish the
voyage across the ocean in a balloon it
would be the first feat of the kind in
history. There have been several at
tempts made to cross the Atlantic
through the air, but they resulted in
signal failures. Professor Wise tried it
about forty years ago, but he was not
able to get a start. Subsequently Pro
fessor Lowe aLso made an attempt, the
starting point being at Point Breeze, but
the balloon was not properly made.
Professor Donaldson did not have mnch
better success in his effort many years
It is Professor Kong’s opinion that the
balloon necessary to make a transatlan
tic voyage should be a hydrogen one.
and its capacity should be from 400,000
to 500,000 cubic foot. He believes that
a trip through a high altitude, say 3%
miles high, as has been suggested by
some aeronauts, is not advisable. His
idea is that the balloon should carry a
drag rope 1.000 or 2.000 feet long, with
the end trailing in the water. In this
way the balloon could strike a current
of air and travel with it across the ocean.
There would be two cars attached to
the balloon. The upper one would carry
the passengers and the food. The lower
one would be used as a cuisine, and
could be descended into by means of a
rope ladder. The idea is to have the
cuisine removed from the upper car
about the space of twenty feet, so that
there would be no danger from the coal
oil stove. Professor King has made over
300 balloon ascensions in bis career.—

Tho Neglige Shirt and the Bach to Go.
The neglige shirt of last summer, no
matter how costly, will not be brought
forth to adorn his manly bosom during
the coming season.
But his interest will rather center in
the percale shirt in quiet effects, with
white collars and cuffs stitched on.
The bosom will have a narrow single
stitched edge, likewise the collars and
cuffs, and will close with three large
mother of pearl buttons sewed on.
In neck dressing, both for these and
for white plain bosom shirts the four in
hand scarf of 2 % inches in width will
receive most favors in his eyes.
Altogether, furnishings in the way of
neck dressings seem for the nonce to be
in harmony with the season’s colorings
in woolens, and this being an exception
is worthy of special note.
Now when the spring and summer
young man dons his silver gray suit he
will find at hand a scarf of the same
coloring, likewise the same in tan.
It seem Iv probable that presently
the flanm t of the finest weave in
twills will again come in favor for negli
ge costumes at the seashore and in the
moon tains: but for town wear never.
But the sash, what of that? Well,
this is a question not easily answered.
It also has been “done to death.** and
such being the case it cannot be seri
