In another moment the', two friends
were hurrying along the road together.
Presently they reached, a" largg-^grassy
field yhere a greatviKUBber of people

Placards were posted on

When 'Pnnl and Walter drew near
thev saw that there was a cable attached
to the car of the balloon, which ran
over two pullers, and. tlien^around a
windlass which was securely fastened in
to the ground. horse was standing

"I know- him. ^He is as nice as he
can be. Let UB'goandialkto him."
Paul, followed Dy Walter, found his
way to the Frenchman's side and said:
"Good afternoon, Mr. Le Olero."'
"Is that you, my little friend?" re
plied Monsieur Le Olero with a pleasant
smile.. 1
"Is the balloon almost ready?" asked
Paul. ...
"Almost," said the Frenchman glanc
ing upward.
"What kind of gas is it filled with?"
asked Paul.
"Hydrogen gas," replied Monsieur
Le Olero. "I^o.you: see.£hat pipe run
ning-tfom the.neck'61" tFe balloon to
the shed The gas is forced from.' tljie
tank in the shed into the balloon until
it is nearly fqll, then the pipe is taken
off, and tho. month of the balloon
fastened up."
"And when you want the gas to come
out, do you .-take off the fastening
asked Walter.
"Oh no, replies Monsieur Le Olerc.
"Do you see that cord hanging down in
the car? Well, that cord runs through
•the balloon and is attaohed to a- valve,
wtaloh is kept plosed. by a spring. When
yon pull the cord,' it. opens the valve
and lets out the gas."
"How delightfulat must be to float
above .the earth like a bird," said Paul,,
looking at the' balloon longingly.
"Would you like to make the trial
trip?" asked Monsieur Le Olerc.
"Yes, indeed," replied Paul, "if Wal
ter ootild go with me'. But—"
"But what?" said Monsieur Le Clerc.'
"Itis perfectly-safe."
"That .is not it," rephed Paul. "But

farther and farther westward' ..
After a great many failures, Paul
succeeded in reaching the cord. Then
they pulled it withm themliands. ..

Presently Paul, who had been earn

to kee]D his voice from trembling.
"Because we are in the clouds again,"
replied Paul. ..." »,.•
"Are we?" said Walter, raising, his
head As ho looked up he caught
sight, of something under the seat.
"Here is a queerkind of unuhor," cned

that no one observed the balloon
The lights and houses grew^nore^nd
more scarfie as they passed/over^ darl^
fields and. woods. They oould see
branches of the trees bend,, and hear the
wind howling among them, and the two
boys knew that they were being driven
along through the air at a rapid rate.
"If we oannot. stop .the balloon," jsaid
Walter, "we shall be tom. to pieces by
the branches of those tiees when we
get a little lower.'1
the bal-
loon ascended, they gave a loud olieer.

Upon his return from Ohina (where
he was regarded as the saviour of the
Empire),he devoted himself to the ser
vice of the vagabond boys of the suburb
of London where he lived gave vp his
own house to them, spent his salary and
his timein teaching themand HL trying
to"make men of them."
One" night, there was brought .'in a
poor little waif, for whom Uiere was
qot a spot in which he could-lie down}

The boy waj^odged in th/stable: The^
next nwifBing "ettrly Colonel (Gordon
was seen crossing the yard with abuoket
of hot water^ soap,' sppnge and |towels.
He: stripped the boy, put him? in the
trough, and itfcfubbed-him.from head to
foot. He led the little (fellow in to
breakfast -presently ~in irnew suit oi
clothes... None of his sevants, he knew,
would touch the child.
Another time he gave up a comnjand,
because lie was ordered to shake haqda
with and welcome the -native-princes,
whom he believed to be-traitors.:
"I.can resign, but I will not play the
polite liar,"he said, gruffly.
Passing' on a hot snminer day thrBngh
a London hospital, he noticed a wound

hurried ont-to the. shops aTinUe distant,*
bought a fan, and earned it to the pjipi

Washington Letter.
Just as you go into the office of the
assistant secretary ofthetreasuryyOu
may see on the right wall a fine por
trait of Geoi^e Washington in a gilt
frame. It i$ a bust picture in oils, and
is wonderfully life'likefand rich in its
colors. It looks something like a Stu
art, but it has-a softer and not so
florid a coloring. This picture was
resurrected"within the last few weeks
by Assistant Secretary of the Treas
ury Coon from the dust room in the
basement, where it had been lying
for generations. .The carpenter of the
treasury called Mr. CoSn's attention
to it, and said he intended to clean it
and reframe it and hang it up in his
shop. Mr. Coon thought it might' be
worth hangingsomewhere else and had
it properly cleaned. .'"When the dust
and dirt was femovedjfthis beautiful
Washington appeared],! i!No one knows
who painted It, Tjut'if is undoubtedly
one of the first pictures among the
many art works of the capitol.

The superiority ot Wells, Richardson &
Co.'a improved Butter Color over all oth
ers made, is againdemonstrated by its rec
ord at the Autumnal Fairs. The test of
practical use is what tells the
story, and the
great value of the premiums given by the
Agricultural Fairs, lies in the fact, that the
]udgesin these cases are regular farmers who
know what their- nepds are and what will

Of Chase's Market, Lowell,
Mass., is frequently called upon
for information in regard to his
wonderful cure by the use of
Ayer's Sarsaparilla.
He assures all inquirers that
his testimonial is strictly true.
Here it is:—
From my Infancy I wu afflicted
Scrofula. The doctors pronounced my
cose incurable, and were of the opinion
that Consumption, induced by scrofulous
poison in the blood, would terminate my
life. About fire years ago had become
so debilitated that to dos day's work wu
an impossibility. I was completely di»
couraged, when a friend advised me to
try Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I bought one
bottle, toolc the Sarsaparilla regularly, and
began to Improve at onoe. C!ontiitulnc
the treatment, was permanently cured—
taking leas than one ddzen bot^es In all.
The virulent sores, wldch had eaten
through my neck in a tinmber of places,
r^iidly heaied, and my strength gradually
incretoed, nuffi became a vigorous man,
as I am to-day.—B. K. Chase, withl. It
