".lust as usual,' sum lus com panion, in rather a petulant tone 'By Jove !" exclaimed M.Godaid "you are a born aeronaut, sir. The balloon kept on risitij', and when a lew hundred yards highei M. (ioil.nil, for the third time utiestioned Ins couipaiiion as to emotions. " I'niotions ! not a trace ot emo tion," replied he, with the tone of man who I eels that he has been taken in. " Well, so much the worse," said the aeronaut., "1 see I shall not be i hie to alarm yon; we have risen lii"h cuoiiLrh, and we shall now de see t id." " Des.'entl ?" "Y'(H, certainly: it would be da''g;eioiiN to go hihter," 1 don t can abiTut the da utter and I don't choose to descend. I'm oino; hi'dier, I am.

Outlaid burst out laiighin He thought the liiiin was joking;. rro you ftoiiiir up ingiier or not T" said Ihe companion, at the same tune grasiing M. Uouard by the throad ami shaking him vio lently. "1 intend to have my onto tioiis." ill. (lodard saw at a glance that he had to do with a madman. The dilated eyes, the furious grasp, the very tone of his voice left no doubt about that. 15ut what was to be done ? They were Rome 3,000 feet high among the cloud; a struggle was out ol the question, as out) violent motion of the madman would bo enough to upset the car. All these thoughts passed through M. (io lard's mind in less than second. His adver sary was a powerful man, and without loosening his grasp, ho called out: " Ah, my fine fellow, you have heen playing tne lool with me. You have made me pav 1,000 francs and not given me a single emotion.'' . " Well, but what would you have me do f asked M. GotlanI, calmly ii nd soothingly. " I am going to throw you over," " Well, ho it so," said the mad man, who seemed to see the neces sity of some precaution, and, the ropo havjntr been attached, he re commenced climbing Jie rigging of the balloon with the agility of .a squirrel, and in -a few moments was seated on tlio saiwx, Mapping his hands and shotting Willi joy. All at once ho takes out his pocket a large dasr knife, and, brandishing U -above his head, yells out, Now, you rascal! you wanted to descend, did you .So you shall, with a vi n geaucer and, before M. tlodard can utter a word, tour out of the six lopes attaching the ropes to the balloon are. cut, uud the car itself swinging helplessly outside. The madman's knife was now touching the other two, when the aeronaut calls out to him, "Stop, one word !" "No, no! down yon go." 'l!ut let mo tell you something, my trie ml ; we are now 3,000 teet high, it is true, but that is not high enough for a thoroughly good fall." " hat do you mean f" asked the madman, confusedly. " I mean this, that a fall of onlv 3,000 feet might not kill me, and I prefer being killed to being only crippled. Oblige me, therefore, bv waiting until we rise 3,000 or 4,000 leet higher." "Agreed!" said the mailmain, who seemed to enjoy the idea ot such a fall. The aeronaut keeps his word ; he throws out nearly the whole of his ballast, and the balloon shoots up rapidly, lint, while the madman is attentively watching this opera tion, 51. (lodard observes that among theconlageasyet untouched is the pulley of the gas escape. He gentle draws the cord, and the gas oegins to escape immediately under the spot where the lunatic is perched. In a few minutes the combined efforts of the gas and the now intensely rarefied air are ap parent, and the madman sinks into a state of lethargy. The aeronaut cautiously brings down his balloon, and (lie terrible crisis is over. Historical Truths. Jackson Clarion. It is puerile in the, Vieksburg Herald to attribute our approval ol Mr. Davis' speech to "hero-wor ship." AYhiit be said was simply historical truth and the occasion lemanded it. It was due to the living and the dead. While the numinous ot the Northern side of the late war are speaking- and writing history in their own vintli- ation, and misrepresenting the mse ot the houth, defaming her sous who dedicated their lives lo it, hall the living tie denied the privi- ilf of siieakiiio- in Iter ili'l'ontjo f Our friend ot the llcruld thinks it a hideouscrime in Mr. Davis to assert that in withdrawing from the Union the Southern States exercised a sovereign right. The colisefincnce of this doctrine is that in obeying their States the citizeuts did not incur the penalty ot treason. The inference, is that the Harold prefers it should be understood that they did. But this was not the position of the United States government. When put to the test it shrank fioni the trial of .Mr. Davison the charge of treason before its own tribunals. Mr. Alexander II. Stevens, an original Union man, has published two volumes to prove the correct ness of the identical position as sumed by Mr. Davis in hisSenshore iddress, and every fibnd ot truth ipplauded his motives itiid conduct. A Strange Coincidence. Cairo Itiilletin. About six days ago Mr. William McDowns, a clerk on tho Iron Mountain wharf boat, fished out of the Ohio river nn old sword scab barb bearing the inscription : I " UKATII TO AM. YANKKKS." ; "I'ADfCAII, COI.f.MllfS, VICKHIirilO." j ; "SKVKIl TAKP, NKiKU A riilHONKle" I W. K. Poster, Co. K., ;t0lli Lu. Tigers. This scabbard has a history. W. J'., roster was, as Ihe inscription on tlie sea iitiaril iiidcates.aUoiilederale soldier, w ho had taken part in en gagements before Columbus, Yicks- mirg anil at, raduenh. In one ol the many minor affairs following the fall ot Memphis, ho was taken prisoner, placed on a transport and sent North. At the tune of his capture he had the scabbard; and in surrendering his sword appears to have retained it. He kept pos session of it until the boat touched at our landing, when he threw it overboard, fearing the results that might arise if it were found upou his person. Being leather, with brass tips, ho was enabled to double it up and secrete it during the pas sago to Cairn. This was fifteen years ago. The gentleman who lished the scabbard out of the river formed Mr. Foster's Acquaintance while the latter was a prisoner at Cairo, and after his paiole assisted him in securing employment here. Mr. McDowns also has a photo graph of Foster, takeu at that lime, which represents him as a smooth faced, mild-appearing gentleman, with a countenance at variance with the blood-thiisty sentiments expressed on the scabbard. That it should have been fished out at all. after having rested so Ion a at Ihe bottom of tho river, subjected to the action of the water and sediment, is strange, but that it should have been taken from its burial place by the only gentleman in the city fi miliar with its history and upon terms of friendship with its owner, is, indeed, remarkable. AVhlsky Htops u Weddng at the! Altar. There was a strange scene at Cinciuiiali one day last week. A I respectable and intelligent young! lady was engaged to be married, end made the discovery that herj ailianced was in the habit of drink-1 ing, and told him what she had leaned. Ho promised never to! drink again, and she forgave him. The wedding day wasstibsequeiitlv set, and all went well until the morning appointed for the perform ance of the ceremony. During his interval he made his usual visits, and though he drank at times, the betrothed never learned of Ins. faithlessness until it was nearly too late to punish him lor it. They were standing side by side, and a moment more would have found them man and wife, when he turned toward her and his tell-tale breath spoke of whisky. When the minis ter propounded the usual question to her the response came faintly ".()." in surprise the question was again asked, and this time the response was clear and decisive "No." She then turned to he lover, accused him of drinking, re milium nun ot ins promise to he and said that a man who woul break a promise so solemnly made could not be relied upon, and she teareii to trust her tutiiro to such man. I'Jvpostitlatious and treatic were all in vnin, anil that little " cs" still remains unsaid, to t A practical joker, a prudent man withal, has gone to cafe nnd order ed a three-masted schooner of beer. when a friend appears at the door vnd beckons to him to go out for a minute. Ihe intended drinker is ifraid that in his absence some one may get away w ith tlie liquid, w hen liatipv thought strikes him, and he wraps around the brfndle of the mug a scrap of paper inscribed, "I have spit in this!" ith a light heart he hastens to the door, com municates with his friend, and re turns to find written in another hand beneath his warning, "So have I !" French Paper. Sheep vs. Dogs. The pictorial idiot (or, at. least, lop-handed noodle) of the Graphic portrays all the faults of thu cat, then pictures a dog carrying a wet girl out of a marsh, and asks, " Which is our best friend, the taxed dog or Ihe untaxed cat !" If this pictorial idint had ever seen tho dog about a grocery barrel, or had watched its highly reprehensi ble altitudes ut gossi pings on the street, or had counted the mangled infants, letter carriers, friends of the family, etc., which it has set its teeth in. or had ever owned a sheep larm, or Had ever lost big chunks ol meat through the skill of this agile robber, or, worn ami ill, had tossed tor half tho night near a bowling, balking, absurd " watch-dog," or had witnessed the agonies of a hydrophobia patient, or had been knocked in the eye for taking a dog's part in a canine conflict, or had searched for fleas, or had ever had a suit of clothesspoiled by I'ido's muddy paws, or had seen all his fresh eggs disappearing for weeks ; if, in short, he wereatall acquainted with the habits of the dog, he would, iiiiIcns ho were indeed a hopeless idiot, cease to build up the reputation of that exasperating nuisance at tlie expense ot a beast which is often useful. X. Y. Ob server, When to Cut Grass. J'-xperiinents have proved that theright tune to cut grass for hav is when m full bloom, and before the blossoms of timothy begin to fall V lieu red clover is very rank, it is apt to go down, and when this oc enrs, will in a short time mold and decay in the bottom. As s.iou inereiori , as mis species or grass begin to "lodge," it- is better harvest it, as it will continue ueteriorate tne longer it remains on the ground. Early mown grass is more dilllcult to cure than after it has become "stalky," and alarg er per cent of the stem has turned to woody fiber, but the superior quality ot tne nay trotii grass in bloom, will well repay tho trouble ami expense ol the extra labor I lie farmer who raises clover for hay, should arrange before harvest to protect it, after it has been mown, from rain and dew. A slight shower of rain will curtail the value of clover hay that is par tially cured, at least '15 tier cent, Ot all the hay crops, clover is the most easily injured, and may be entirely ruined by exposure to a few light showers ; but when per fectly cured and housed, it is the very best hay for sheep and cattle that is grown, keeping them in a healthy and thriving condition as no other hay will. Kansas Farmer. A Story of it Trail. She was a tall individual, and sprang out of the wagon us lightly i spring cuicuen alter a grass- said the mad man, with a wild laugh : " but hist an idea strikes me : I'll go up to the top ot tho bal loon :" and, suiting the action to u word, he jumped into the rigging of the car. " But, my poor friend," Raid the aeronaut, "you II kill yourself like that" The madman uttered a threat. "At least," said M. Godaid, "let me put A rope around your waist to ! prevent an accident.

What J(m'n It Mean 1 Detroit Telegraph. We don't wish to alarm anybody, but these are tacts : There is the commune, whose b.tner is a red flag; the burners ot reaping and mowing machines in the Ohio. In diana and Missouri rural districts wear red rtaiinel badges; there is a formidable body of men who wear red ribbons j then there are Thur man and Hendricks, who carry red bandanas; and there ist'ronin, of Oregon, with his famous red nose. Now, what iliH's all this sud-Ieii out ' break of redness luv.tu ? The Gulf Stream. The great "river in the ocean known as the gulf stream, from the gulf of Mexico to the Azores, is 3,000 miles in length, and its greatest breadth 120. At the first its speed is four miles an hour: but this gradually declines as it be comes more diffused. Oil the State of Florida its temperature is eighty-three degrees, or nine de grees above the surrounding wa ters; and off Xewfouudland, in winter it is twenty -five to thirty degrees warmer than the neighbor ing seas, thus causing the dense fog of that region. It is tl grt't dispenser of heat and moisture in its course. To its influence are owing the verdure of the "Emer ald Isle," and the mildness of the j climate of Western Europe com pared with countries elsewhere of corresponding latitudes. It arrests the chilling Arctic icebergs, which melt away in its tepid waters. Ii is ot it deep indigo blue as long as its current is deep and narrow : and the fine of demai katiou be tween it and the adjacent waters is so marked that ii vessel mav be seen floating one-half in the gulf stream aint the other in ihe common waters ot the sea; and two buckets let down, one at the bow, tho other at the stern, will draw up water differing in temperature by no less than thirty degrees.

"Ihe weather is warm," replied me iai parry, "and you can go without socks." " But my boots hiirt my feet," insisted the old man. "Go barefooted," said she, rather sharply, lhen turning to the clerk; she changed lier tune, and remarked: "Young man, please count out these eggs and give me lour yards ot calico to match this 'ere dress.

Forner says that in Franco everybody drinks but nobody gets drunk. That is natural enough. Ill this county, where about one half of the H-op!e abstain from li quor, one man is obliged to do the drinking for two, and sooner or la ter he mast go to the wall. Dog Law In Connecticut. In Connecticut there were four deaths by hydrophobia iu Iflffl, seven in 1877, and tiro already f bin year. Among the above were, sov era! prominent citizens. There l.i.as been paid annually $12,000 (I5,(M)0, or more, for sheep, kill d by dogs, while thousands of oMi.-.m have been maimed but not paid i. r. Though many parts of. the. Stale are especially adapted, to, raisin, sheep profitably, the fear, of Io5 from dogs has nearly put an end m this industry. The above eondii in i ot things led the State U'gislai in . ; recently adjourned, to. pass, w i t unanimity, a stringent dog law, of which the principal provisions ,iu the follow ing : Every dog kept must bo regis tered on or before May 1st, of em n year, and l. paid tWeforto the town clerk for each, malo d.1.''. 1.3 for each female. dog. Every dog must constantly Avear around the neck a collar distinctly iiiarke.l with the register number and He owner's name. Every, dog not mI licensed and collared In to be kill d. and il bounty is" paid for the kul ing.. Any person keeping an un registered dog may bo fined 7, or imprisoned thirty days, or boilu and it is made the duty of gramt jurors and all other prosecuting officers to prosecute any violation of this act. All damages done by dogs to sheep or lambs, of cattle, are to be paid for by tho town, and collected in full from the owners o! the dogs. Any person killing a registered dog, unless Such killing is justifiable for the protection o life or property, is liable for tin value of tho dog, as established bv competent evidence, nr. I to a fine not exceeding V7, or imprisonment not exceeding 30 davs, or both. American Agriculturist. We verily believe that the tittle. has come when every voter should make the dog law a controlling question in casting his vote for a legislator. In vain have the press and people cried out for a dog iaw. Common sense demands it reason asserts the need of protection-from sheep-killing dogs. Yet our legis lators will do nothing, to relieve the people. A t the coming legislature, . let (he above law bo enacted and put in operation immediately, If not sooner. The taxis none too hiirli. V man who can't pay the tax is un able to have it dog. Oecn aia Ven tral Wetl-ly. , General Grant on Jetterson Datls.
