From the Philadelphia Times.
"Let her gol" shouted Prof. Samuel
A. King at 4:40 o'clock yesterday af
ternoon, as the great Wanamaker bal
loon, which had been tugging impa
tiently at the ropes, shot up into the
air. ihe balloon went up in sunsbine
and came down in storm. Its send-off
was favorable in the extreme; its end
was an thing but that A rent from
top-to bottom brought the air-ship to
landing in a hurrv.
charge of Prof. King, was the crown
ing event of tho entertainment furn
ished by Mr. Wanamaker. Ihe bal
loon was a new one and named in hon
or of a new aerial visitor, the Comet.
The accupants of the basket were the
professor, who was making his 129th
ascension, a lady friend of Mr. King's
family, and a representative of the
Times. The balloon, which was in
flated with 125,000 feet of gas, left
the earth behind in a jiffy amidst the
applause of the thousands of spectators
and the music of Carl Senz's orchestra.
The wind, which had been blowing
strongly throughout the afternoon,
seemed to die an ay as the woid of
command was given, and at first the
great air-bag hung listlessly above the
heads of the multitude. At 2,000 feet
above the earth the view was a per
fect one. All the people of the city
seemed to be gathered near Memorial
hall. Their figures faded away grad
ually, then blended into one solid mass,
and finally disappeared over the city.
The balloon took a southeasterly
course and followed down over Ridge
avenue. Far beneath lay the great
city. It was a city composed of red
brick. Prominent buildings could be
easily distinguished. The penitentiary
looked like the spokes of a great cart
wheel, the public buildings like a mas
sive fortress. At 4:55 the balloon was
over the Delaware. The vessels were
their holidav attire, and the
snnKrinfrekersaf.dmfcrkUJSJiinnii, small trees. ."We
plosion of guns from the Camden side
bore evidence that the day was being
spent by the Jersey small boy in a
much dilTerent way than by his broth
er on the other side of the river. It
was a beautiful country that the bal
loon passed over after crossing Cam
den. At a height of 3,000 feet the
truck gardens looked like the squares
of a checker-board.
Now the wind died away and the
sun shot its rays down spitefully upon
the occupants of the balloon. It was
warm, very warm, away up there in
the clouds, and the raritied air acted
upon the ears in a rather disagreeable
way, but nobody minded that. Far
below a puffing engine drew o train of
passenger cars toward Atlantic City.
Although they looked like toy cars at
a distance, the rails were perfectly
distinguishable. The intricacies of the
average Jersey cieek could be appreci
ated at this height. They were home
thiug awful to contemplate.
And so the balloon floated on over
tbe cultivated lands of Jersey. At
5:15 the balloon was 5,000 feei high.
Then it took a sudden fall, as the sun
jvent behind a cloud, and popped up
again as a little ballast was thrown
out. What a sense of quiet and peace
it was, away up there. Hardly a
sound could be heard. The faint pull
ing of an engine away off to the right,
au occasional bird call from the trees,
the (.almost indistinguishable cackling
of the barnvard fowl that was all.
All the rumbling noises of tho city
were left far behind. This was a new
world, as yet unexplored except by
the few. Mists hung about the air
ship on all sides. Dark clouds were
gathering off towards tho left. They
foreboded no good.
It was 5:45 when a low, grumbling
roar in the distance caused all ears to
quicken. "It's a wagon going over
the bridge," said the professor. "No,
I'm wrong," he added a moment later;
"it's thunder." A little village was
near by and the passing balloon caused
a commotion. Far off to the left the
gathering clouds wore causing a differ
ent kind of a commotion. There was
a heavy storm brewing. The question
was, how long would it hold off, and
where could the balloon mike a land
ing? At 6 o'clock the village of Acto
was just beneath. A train drew up
to the depot and the engine saluted.
Then tbe sun disappeared and the
chill of the coming storm was felt, and
in a moment the balloon had fallen to
within a few hundred feet of the earth.
There was nothinj; ahead but a forest.
It was a gloomy outlook. Sharp eyes
searched for a favorable spot. A land
ing must be made or the thunderstorm
braved in the skies. There was no
telling where the balloon would wind
up should she get into the center of
The balloon kept on falling until
the drag-rope whipped along through
the tops of the trees, only about 150
feet below. To the left a clearing
lliwaa dixoysrefpvrit n!a?fanniTiQuni)
on it. Strong and loud calls for aid
brought ready responses, "Head ua
off! catch the drag-ropel" shouted the
captain of the air-ship, but the drag
rope whipped merrily along over thd
trees skirting the clearing and defied
capture. Matters were coming to a
crisis. The shadow of the coming storm
upon the trees in the distance was black
as night. The professor sat with the
neck of a bag of ballast in his hands
as the balloon sailed over a warap
covered with tall cedars. It would be
impossible to laud here. The water
was neck deep. The balloon would
have thrashed itself to pieces in short
order. Down went the air vessel as
if to reconnoiter. A cold current
struck her. It was the advance guard
of the storm. With the swiftness of
an express train the great gas hag flew
along. ''Look out! Brace yourself
welll" sang out the professor, as it be
came evident that the balloon would
strike. The shock came and the bask
et rushed through the tree tops and
bounded up again. Down she came
and dashed in among tho cedars ns if
trying to level them. A little more
sand was thrown out and tho basket
cleared the 'trees, and in a motnont
more the dangerous swamp had been
cleared. It was high time. The storm
was almost upon the balloon. "Now
look out for yourselves!" and the Pro
fessor threw over the anchor as the
gas bag floated over a dry spot covered
must come down here and I'll explode
the balloon if necessary." The an
chor caught, and held, and the balloon
careened over and went up abovo the
trees. Tho valve was open and the
gas rushed out. But not half fast
enough. The wind increased and the
balloon tugged to get free. The pro
fessor seized the collapsing cord. In
an instant the balloon was rent from
top to bottom. Out went the gas with
a rush, and down came the balloon.
It fell over some high bushes in the
form of a tent. Then the rain descend
ed in torrents, and there, in the midst
of a Jersey forest and in the midst of
a little tornado the voyage of the Com
et was ended. She had been in the
air an hour and a half.
The rain stojtpe'd and the mosquitoes
came. A tramp of nn hour through
swamps and wet bushes, and help was
found. A wugon took the air voy
agers three or four miles to Acto, and
the city was reached at 1 o'clock this

A .Native Fiji Dance.
Tho most graceful 'rneke of all
Fijian dances was one which represents
the breaking of the waves on a coral
roef, a poetic idea admirably rendered.
Years ago I remember the delight
with which we hailed an exquisite
statuette in Sir Noel Patton's studio,
representing the curling of a wav
by a beautiful femalo figure,
supposed to be floating thereon; but I
never dreamed that we should find tho
L?nme, idea so perfectly carric-i qut
by a race whom we have been wont to
think of only as ruthless savages. Tho
idea to'be conveyed is that'Tof the tide
gradually rising on the reef, till at
length there remains only a little coral
isle, round which tho angry breakers
rage, flinging their white foam on
every side At first the dancers form
in long lines and approach silently, to
represent tho quietadvance of the
waves. AftcraVhiletho lines break
up into smaller companies, which ad
yance with out-spread hands and bodies
bent forward, to represent the rippling
wavei'ts, the tiniest waves being rep
resentee by children. Quicker and
quicker they come on, now retreating,
yet, like true waves steadily progress
ing, on every sido of tho imaginary
islet, round which they play or battle,
after the manner of breakers, spring
ing high in mid air, and flinging
their arms above their heads, to repre
sent tho action of spray. As they
leap and toss their heads, the soft
white 'masi,' or native cloth (which for
greater effect, they wear as a turban,
with long streamers, and also wind
round tho waist, whence it floats in
long scarf-like ends), trembles and
flutters in the breeze. The whole ef
fect is most artistic, and tho orchestra
do their part in imitating the roar of
the surf on the reef a sound which to
them has a never ceasing lullaby from
the hour of their birth. At home in

.Tiie27oise of the .FisonR.InJlV
Jate number of the Medical Bccordl)r.
Hammond says that when you poke
the end of your finger in your ear tha
roaring noise you hear is ihe sound of
tho circulation in your finger, which is
a fact, as any one can demonstrate for
himself by first putting his fingers in
his ears and then stopping them up
with other substance. Trj it, and
think what a wonder of a machine
your body is, that even the points of
your fingers are such busy workshops
that they roar likn a small Niagara.
Tho roaring is probably more than the
noise of tho circulation of tho blood.
It is the voice of all the ital processes
together the tearing down and build
ing up processes that nre always going
forward in every living body from con
ception to death.
Lemons for Cossumptiox. A cor
respondent of an English medical jour
nal furnishes the following recipe as a
new cure for consumption: Put a dozen
whole lemons in cold water, and boil
until soft (not too soft),roll and squeeze
until the juice is all extricated, sweeten
the juice enough to bo palatable, then
drink. Use as many as a dozen. a day.
Should they cause pain or looseness of
the bowels, lessen the quantity, and
use five or six a day until, better. By
the time you have used five or six doz
en, you will begin to gain strength and
have in appetite. Of course as you
get be.er you need not use so many.
Follow these directions, and we know
fthat jou will niver regret it if thpr6 is

The Comet. People are beginning
to look for the new comet, which will
be in perihelion about August 15th.
It is at present about 100,000,000
miles from the earth. When it
reaches its perihelion it will
be distant about four tenths of tho dis
tance between tho earth and the sun.
The tail is now perceptible by the aid
of a telescope. Whether the comet
will become visible to the naked eyo
cannot yet bo determined. This is tha
great eomet which was observed by the
Chinese in 1337. The orbits of the
two are the same. Tho earth is in
no danger. Sleep in peace.
