INTERESTING READING FOR LIT TLE MEN AND WOMEN. Walloon Adventures on !L(ind and Water—Went Both "Way* Round, 'the Eartli—Saved by a Dream—A .Philosophic Q/uery. The time has not yet come when we -can ride on the wings of the wind and defy the storm king. A skilled aero naut, Prof. S. A. King, has been mak ing ascensions from the fair grounds all the past summer. One day last week a venturesome young lady, Miss Joie Morris, wanted to try the novel ex perience and he took her with him up into the sky. All wqpt well for half an hour, when a sudden current of air struck the balloon and carried it first UP up, up and then out toward the great lake which waits at the border of the grounds, smooth and placid at most times, but always a source of terror to the aeronaut. For in times past a num ber of daring men have been blown out •over it and night coming on and the gas in their balloons becoming exhausted they have never been heard of again. Prof. King knew the danger of being blown over the lake and made frantic efforts to bring the balloon to earth, at the same time dropping a long rope with a grappling hook to the end, but all in vain the balloon was rapidly car ried eastward, while the spectators saw it dropping lower and lower until it al most seemed to touch the water. The captain of one of the little steamers at the fair grounds saw the balloon, real ized the danger of its occupants and started at once to give chase. He had only a limited amount of coal onboard, and after an hour's unsuccessful' pur suit was compelled to turn back. It was rapidly getting dark, and the bal loon was rushing along at a trepaen dous rate of speed close to the surface of the lake, now striking the water and then rebounding a hundred feet in the air. Miss Morris was cool and col lected, even in this awful danger. The professor threw overboard his anchor, blankets, and everything possible to lighten the basket, so that it would ride "the waves. As soon as the little steam ier got into Chicago harbor she signaled the revenue cutter, Which had steam up, and she started immediately to the rescue. The balloon was barely visible some ten miles to the northeast, but the wind had died down to a slight breeze, and after a long chase the run away was caught up with. When the ^steamer was a hundred yards away Prof. King shouted to the captain not to come any nearer, as he feared that sparks from the smokestack might ex plode the gas in the balloon. So a small boat was let down and in a few minutes the balloon and its passengers were safe on board the cutter, after an adventure which neither the professor nor Miss Morris would care to repeat. Being blown out to sea is not by any means the only danger to which aero nauts are exposed. Here is a graphic account of an adventure at night in a storm, told by Harper's Young Folks: It was indeed the fierce bluster of the rgale, tearing its way through leaf and branch, that we heard. If the balloon should dash against the hedge of spears ambushed there, it would be not only wreck, but the sharpest peril of life. "We must trust to luck," said Donald son, grinding his teeth "we can't do anything. But be ready to spring for a big limb, and hold on for dear life when I give the word." We were not long in suspense. The "downpour suddenly lessened, and our balloon rose a little. It still thundered .and lightened, but the rage of the storm liad spent itseif. The captain clutched my hand with a hard grip. "We're all right now," with a quiver in his voice, for his iron nerve had been shaken "but let me tell you, you will never be so near death again and escape it." He bent over the side of the basket. "I think there's a village close at hand. Xiook sharp, anc. you will see the twin kle of a light down there." And it was so, surely. As we moved on more light shot into view. We were hov elling over a valley between two moun tain ridges, one of which had been so nearly our ruin. It was an hour after midnight, and the villagers were asleep. Donaldson's gayety frothed like cham pagne after our recent danger. "We'll wake the pe« pie from their dreams with a blast from the skies." He lnugh •ed and seized a bugle which hung near at hand. "How's this for Gabriel's horn?" He blew notos of piercing sweetness (he had been an aimy bugler) which rose and swelled and sent their wild echoes flying among those mid night hills. Lights began to shine in every house, and moving lanterns and the clatter of voices betokened a general alarm. What this midnight summons cut of the skies might mean filled the rural fancy with terror, and the note of fear could be heard in many of the voices which floated lip to us. We were so near the earth that we could liear the dragrope slapping the sticks and stones with its tail. •'Village aho-o-oy!" whooped the cap tain, at the top of his lungs. "Aho-o-oy there! Bear a hand, you land-lubbers, at the rope, and pull us down to earth." So our rustic friends with a hearty cheer tumbled over each other in their zeal, to get hold of the rope—fear now blown away by. admiration—and we were soon safely on the ground with our air-ship anchored for the night. Went Both Ways Round the Earth. The astonishing tremors to which the solid shell of the earth is subject are only just beginning to be made appar ent by the delicate instruments of- mod ern science. It is now kngwn that the -effects of earthquakes reach hundreds tmd thousands of miles beyond the points at which they are perceptible to'the unassisted human senses. In fact, the shocks of severe earthquakes appear in some cases to be transmitted completely around the globe. A remarkable example of this oc curred on July 2S, 1889,' and has only recently been brought to light. While examining the record of pendulum ex periments at Potsdam, Hei*r Pusclmitz "happened to consult a volume .Of the pt blications of the Seismological soci ety of Japan, an association for the astudy of earthquakes, and was surprised to find that a severe earthquake which /r fcr/' it had occurred at Kumamsto on Hie date above mentioned coincided in time, allowance being made for transmission of the shock, with a double perturba tion .which had been noticed by the pendulum experimenters at Potsdam and Wilhelmshaven. The explanation of the double per turbation recorded in Germany is not the least interesting part of the story. It was interpreted to mean that the shock in Japan ran both ways round the globe, had a shorter distance to go, it arrived at Potsdam about two hours and thirty- eight, minutes sooner than did the perturbation, which ran round the shell of the earth eastward. The distance along a great circle of the globe from Kumamato to Pots dam, reckonJng toward the west, is about fifty-five hundred miles, while the distance along the same great circle reckoned the other way round is nine teen thousand five hundred miles. The average velocity with which the shock traveled in the earth was about seven thousand five hundred and eighty:seven feet in a second. This agrees very well with the velocity observed in somo other similar cases. Saved by a Dream. In his "Recollection of Military Serv ices" Sergeant Morris says that* one night, when he was completely worn out with long-continued and arduous labors, he was placed as sentinel on a post of considerable importance. He knew that the safety of the town might depend on his vigilance, and that dis grace and death awaited him if he were fcfand asleep at his post but excessive weariness seemed to blunt all moral sense of obligation. I resisted the temptation for a while, and then, feeling that I must sleep if I died for it, I deliberately lay down on the ground, rested my firelock by my side, and, with a stone for a pillow, fell asleep. Time passed quickly, and now what has seemed to me an intervention of providence occurred. I was awakened by a terrible dream. An immense lion, I fancied, was about to spring upon me. In the utmost terror I started to my feet, instinctively grasping my firelock. Footsteps were approaching. I pulled myself together, and had sufficient presence of mind to give the usual challenge, "Who comes there?" "The Grand Round," was the reply. "Stand fast, Grand Round!" I com manded. "Advance, sergeant, and give the countersign." The sergeant advanced a few paces, pronounced the mystic word, and I called out, "Pass on Grand Round, all's well!" It would not have licen "weir' for me had they caught me asleep the inevita ble punishment for such a crime, under such circumstances, would have been death. I had been asleep nearly two hours. I thanked God for my deliver ance, and vowed never again to sleep while on sentry. Indeed, I was too much excited to care for any more sleep that night. The Origin of Wall Paper. In answer to a query as to the ori gin of wall papers, an English authority states that the art of making paper hangings was copied from the Chinese, among whom it has been practiced from time immemorial. Wall papers did not come into common use in Europe till the eighteenth century, but stamped pa pers for the purpose appear to have been made in Spain and Holland about 1555. The first allusion to wall papers known to exist is in the examination of Herman Schinkel, a printer of Delft, who was accused, in 1568, of printing books which were forbidden by the then prevailing laws. Being interrogat ed as to certain ballads, he said they had been printed by his servant in his absence, and that when he came home and found they were not delivered, he refused to deliver them and threw them into a corner, intending to print roses and stripes on the back to paper attics. It is probably to king William HI. that England owes the introduction of wall papers into that country. Paper hangings of a sort, it is true, were in use in England before the time of Will iam of Orange, but they usually consist ed merely of maps of the world, as it was then known, with fantastic bor ders of Indians, negroes, and ele phants, and other natives of far-off re gions. The art of paper hanging in imi tation of the old velvet flock was new when William came to England. It was on the walls of the drawing room at Kensington palace that these new hangings were first seen in Britain. They took the fancy of the fashionables of the day, and their cheapness being an additional recommendation, they speedily came into general use. Pat's Enterprise. A very amusing Incident is told of a noble son of Erin who had received many letters from his friends in Amer ica, holding out all sorts of inducements to him to come over. They had tried every thing they could think of, when at last one of his friends wrote him that he had a "foine job for him, digging post-holes at foive cints apiece." That was too much for Pat he could not miss such a golden opportunity as that so he gathered together his be longings and started for the land that seemed to him flowing with milk and honey. Having arrived and secured the situa tion, Pat worked along with his com panions for a few weeks, when a brill iant idea seemed to strike him. Saying nothing to any one, lest his scheme should be discovered, Pat started off and found some unoccupied lots, on which he proceeded at once to dig post holes as close together as he could make them. He then erected a sign, which read, POST-HOLES FOR SALE HERE and he strode proudly up and down surveying his work, but whether he ever succeeded in getting a customer or not was never found out—Harper's Young People. BISMARBK ON MUSIC.,. •. -'v J"i'vv:y The Part It FInyea In the Unincatloa of Germany, Prince Bismarck years ago said that his favorite musical instrument was a hand-organ. He did not mean by that remark, however, that he was no ad mirer of the "heavenly maid." On the contrary, the ex-chancellor is a great lover of music and musicians, in the course of a speech for. the members of the Gesang Yereih Orpheus, of Ber men, a few days ago, he paid a high tribute to the art, recognizing its aid in shaping the destinies of Germany and in carrying out his far-reaching plans. "In music," said the prince, among other things, "I am, unfortunately, not your equal. In the multitude of things I was compelled to study in my youth music was neglected. But despite that I love it. I am thankful to ally in my political efforts. The sound of the German song won the hearts. I count it, in fact, among the aids which led to the success of our strife for union. Practical examples are not always easy to cite, but the first which I now recall is that of the Becker Rhinesong in 1841. Its influence was mighty. The rapid adoption of the song by the people—then mostly par tieularists—had the effect of two army corps. Later came the "Wacht am Rhein." The singing of that war-song on the battle-fields in winter, when food was scarce, strengthened the heart of many a soldier, and the heart feeling is everything in battle. Therefore I do not wish the German song to be over looked as one of the war aids of the future. I wish to thank you for the aid given me by German singers in appreciating the national idea and car rying it beyond the borders of the Fatherland. We should hardly have re mained in such close relations to Vi enna. had not Haydn, Mozart and Bee thoven lived there and created a bond of art between the Lower Rhine and "Vienna. "Yes," added the prince, "our rela tions to our third ally, Italy, were of a musical nature before they became political. The first conquests which It aly made with us were musical con quests. I am no enemy of Italian mu sic, despite my preference of the Ger man school on the contrary I am an ad mirer of it In this sense I thank you as the guardians of music—continue to cultivate it The German cannot re sist the effect of song. He is in the proper humor when he hears music. It is a fortunate thing that our ruling families are not enemies, but cutivat ors of music. This art would not have reached so high a state of perfection in our country had it not always been cultivated by the ruling families." Daringly True. Christian VII. of Denmark was a weak, though perhaps a well meaning king, and it was during his very early youth that he fell under the influences of evil counsellors. One of these was Counte Holke, a dissolute Courtier, who accompanied his royal master to Eng land, and there led him into infamous courses, to be finally defeated in his evil designs by a homely truth-teller of the common people. The king and his friends went one night in disguise to some place of re sort frequented by Danish and Swedish shipmasters and there Count Holke asked one old skipper what he thought of his king and if he were not proud of the honors paid him by the Eng lish. "I think," said the seaman, dryly, "that with such counsellors as Count Iiolke, it will be a miracle if he escapes destruction." "Do you know Count Holke, friend, that you speak of him thus familiar ly?" "Only by report," said the Dane, "but everybody in Copenhagen pities the queen, and attributes the coldness the king showed her, as he was setting out on his voyage, to the rpalice of Count Holke." The king now broke in for the first time. He gave the honest sailor a handful of ducats, and said: 'Tell the truth, my man, and shame the devil!" His Danish speech gave the old man a hint of his identity, and he looked upon his sovereign with love and rev erence. "Forgive me,, sire," he said, in a low tone, "but I cannot conceal my grief to see you exposed to the temptations of this vast metropolis, under the pilot age of the most dissolute nobleman in Denmark." His incident led to the decline of Holke's influence, and finally caused the king to cast him off altogether. Fanny Davenport's Joke. From South Duxbury, Mass., comes an interesting story about popular Fanny Davenport that serves to illus trate her keen wit and appreciation of humor. It is well kpiown that Miss Davenport has made the above place her home this summer. Mr. Melbourne MacDowell, the husband of Fanny Davenport, is one of the earliest risers, and scarcely had the sun made its ap pearance out of the eastern horizon than his manly form was to be Seen wending toward the shore with rod and reel. From morning till night he'd fish, and when the setting sun had cast a gloom over the surroundings he would return and, up to the last storms, with more than usual luck. Since then, how ever, the storms seem to have driven the fish away from the shores of South Duxbury, and MacDowell would re turn empty-handed and finally became very morose in telling nightly the story of his sorrows at fishing. During the visit of Miss Davenport to Boston she was struck with the idea of engaging a diver to visit her home with a supply of live fish, and when Mr. MacDowell was fishing the diver, ostensibly at work on the foundations for a pier, would attach a big fish to the line. The scheme worked to perfection for sev eral days, until the diver, becoming a little worse for liquor, told the joke to several of the villagers. It finally reached the ears of Mr. MacDowell. Miss Davenport owned up to the affair and the laughter that followed shook the massive walls of Melbourne Hall. Miss Davenport has been heartily com plimented upon her keen wit, while Mr. MacDowell admits 'tis the best joke he had ever known.—New Herald.

A namchnsetti Scheme- WliiVih Is Expected to Build' a Slannfactarlngf Town. GonVay village, in Massachusetts, three miles and a half from the well kntrtvn summer resort of Arihfteid, is. to be converted into a bustling manu facturing town and market center, if an ambitious water-power scheme de scribed by the New York Evening Post now-on foot is ever consummated. It involves the harnessing, up of South river by the electricians. Conway, it is true, already has cotton and woolen/ mills, but they are not large enough' to give it distinction as a factory town. In the four miles of its course, from Conway Center to the Dcerfield river, South river falls several hundred feet, rushing down over rocks and ledges, and then out over a sandy bed but always^ confined between high hills, which in places become almost inacces sible cliffs. This valuable water-power has hitherto been lost to manufactur ers. Some distance before the Deer field river is reached a ledge off rock rises sixty to one hundred feefe above the bed of the stream, extends at right angles from the north wall of the river gorge to within ninety-five feetf'of the opposite wall, and forms almost a per fect dam. It is proposed' to complete this dam, by which means the water could be made to- flow back three fourths of a mile and a capacity of' 125,000,000 gallons could be obtained. The depth of the water just above the dam would be nearly sixty feet 1,200 feet from the dam it would measure forty-five feet, and yne-hal£ a mile back twenty-two and one-half feet. The proposed power house for the genera tion of electricity will be located 450 feet below the dam, and the fall from the top of the dam to the water wheels will be 108 feet. It is estimated that with two fiftecn-inch wheels on a hori zotal shaft over 600 horse power can be developed. The electricity generated] will be used chiefly to operate an elec tric railroad for freight and passengers between Conway Center and the steam railroad in the valley. The result would be to bring Conway into touch with the outer world and to make of ilt the railroad town for pastoral Aslilield. Another prospective use for the elec tricity is the transmission of the cur rent to neighboring towns or cities for lighting purposes. Northampton is only fifteen miles distant, and electricians, say that a current could be sent to that place sufficiently strong to light the whole city. Made liove by Lightning. The late Prof. Morse made love by lightning, as it were. He met his first wife during an evening call at the house of her father and proposed marriage to her before he went away that night. After some happy years she died, leav ing him with several children. He re mained a widower until the age of 57 he attended the wedding of his eld est son. One of the younger ones was what the Scotch tenderly call an "in nocent," and it was the kindness of a relative of the bride to this boy that attracted his father's attention. He invited the lady to drive with him on the following day. When they returned from the expedition they were engaged to be married. Buying Goods of Roberts' Suoply House, The Work that pays the best.
