The word "advertisement," which meant special notice, was not used la our modern sense until about 1CG0. The terra adopted was "advice." The fees were distinctly heavy, and a curi ous fact Is that It does not seem to have occurred to the promoters to churge for space or the number of words. Important "advices" or those ly important people seem simply to have been put in capital letters and ullowed more space without regard to price. From "A History of Eng lish Journalism." by J. B.

Earlier Anglo-Indian generations knew them ns "long drawers" or "mosquito draw ers" and still earlier generations as "mogul breeches," under which name they are referred to by Beaumont and Fletcher. European Improvers were nt one time in tbe habit of adding feet to these leg garments, but a certain London tradesman was not at a loss to find an outlandish reason for this addi tion.

A PIOHEEHEROUnOT The Brave and Daring French man Pilatre de Rozier. TRAGIC END OF HIS CAREER. Ha Was the First Aeronaut to Los His Life From a Balloon, and He Was Dashed to Death With a Com eanion From a Haight of 1,700 Fact. Jean Francois Pilatre de Rosier, who was born at Uett In 1750 aud who was killed, a martyr to his seal, by a fall from his balloon at Boulogne, France, June 15, 17U5, was tbe first aeronaut to lose his life In the dangerous work of mastering tbe air. Pilatre de Rozier, who bad made ascents in the Montgalfier balloon, de termined to solve the question of bal loons as mediums for carrying passen gers and could think and dream of nothing but bow be could fashion a machine that would carry him on an aerial voyage. When bis balioon was finished be made some twenty-three ascents, nearly always alone, but occa sionally accompauied by the Marquis d'Arlandes, a brave soldier and one who had faith in Pilatre's Ideas. The balloon was always held captive by strong cords. Whenever he went np there was a crowd to watch blm. Oue day there was a thrilling moment Tbe balloon drifted toward some high trees, and It seemed inevitable that the tissues would be torn by tbe branches and Pilatre dashed to the ground. They saw the young man calmly throw a bunch of straw on his fire aud quickly Itour over it two small bottles of oil. Instantly the fierce beat sent tbe bal loon up safely, and It swept beyond the danger line of the trees. A mighty shout went up from the crowd, and when be came down Pilatre bad an ovation. He now felt ready to make his grand experimental trial trip, but the king would not allow him to go, as be feared to lose so brave and scientific a man. Pilatre was In despair, and at length tbe king said that be would give blm tbe opiHirtunlty to test tbe safety of bis balloon in tbe following way: He would give full pardon to any two criminals who were willing to go up In it, provided Pilatre did not him self go. The scientist was very angry. He said: "What! Shall vile criminals, foul murderers, men rejected from the bos om of society, have tbe glory of Iteing the first to navigate the air? Never while Pilatre de Rozier draws breath After repeated prayers for permis sion to make bis experiment be ap pealed to tbe influence of tbe Duchess de Polignac, tbe governess of the royal children. To her petitions tbe Mar quis d'Arlandes added his and asked to be allowed to accompany Pilatre. At length consent was obtaiued. On Not. 21, 1783. Pilatre and the marquis made an ascent from tbe gar dens of the Chateau de la Muette. In the Bols. They sailed safely across the Seine, over the Hospital For Old Sol diers, over the Military school and landed about five miles from Paris. Their return was greeted with wild enthusiasm. The marquis rode back, but Pilatre had to go first to bis bouse and get a coat, for some one bad stolen bis In the mixnp of their coming down, when the balloon, of course, collapsed. Pilatre now announced that he would cross the channel from Boulogne to England. A wealthy Frenchman ad vanced the money to construct an Im proved machine that he was certain could stay In the air as long as neces sary. This new invention was a bal loon filled with hydrogen gas. Under it was a cylinder by which he expected to rarefy the air contained in It so that he could either ascend or descend eas ily and so reach currents of air that would take him In any desired direc tion. It was five months before there came a day suitable for making tbe aerial trip. A physician who loved adven'.ure and believed In the success of the ex. perlment went with him from Bou logne. They cut the cords that held the bal loon at 7 o'clock in tbe morning. Tbe ascent was majestic, and when at a height of 200 feet tbe balloon swept Into a current of air that took it to ward the channel. Suddenly a cross current swept it back. ' Pilatre bantpned to let some cold air Into the cylinder and in some way made a rent In tbe balloon, Tbey were 1.700 feet high, and Instantly tbey were dashed to the earth, mangled and crushed frightfully. France still remembers his enthusi astic faith iu bis scientific efforts, and in many places are memorials and in scriptions that perpetuate his fame. Boston Globe. The Dental Ornaments.
