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 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
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
find that a severe earthquake which
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
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
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
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
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,
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

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
"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
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
"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
"I think," said the seaman, dryly,
"that with such counsellors as Count
Iiolke, it will be a miracle if he escapes
"Do you know Count Holke, friend,
that you speak of him thus familiar­
"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
"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
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

A namchnsetti Scheme- WliiVih Is
Expected to Build' a Slannfactarlngf
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.
