Old Scottish Words.
A correspondent f tbe Glasgow

i t oid Scotch words from East Aber
deenshire: alowse To say anything is
uae mowse means it is uncanny or dan
serous. Connacbed Spoiled. Clean
lonuached would mean utterly destroy-i-d
or rendered useless. Blaud To

A child would be told. "Dlnna blaud

A child's forearm. Tbe last Is a very
old expression, but 1 have beard it

means tbe baby has pluuip arms.
Evolution of Advertisement.
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. Williams.
Origin of Pajamas.
J a jamas are being interpreted sim

ly udpted by Europeaus in India from
the Mohammedans, probably by tbe
Portoguese in the first place. 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

Georga Meredith.
It was not until George Meredith
was an old man that be began to reap
any reward from bis books. He was
at least sixty years old. if not more,
before be was able to leave the offices
of Chapman & Hall, the publishers,
where he acted as reader. A friend of
his speaks of this as one of the trag
edies of misdirected work and recalls
tbe fact that only 2 per cent of all
manuscripts submitted to tbe average
publishing bouse are fit for publica
tion. In addition to his other troubles.
Meredith's legs were paralyzed, but in
spite of all he was optimistic. "Some
men go first In their heads," he said.

The Brave and Daring French
man Pilatre de Rozier.
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
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
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
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.
