'clinging to the hoop of the parachute.
It is necessary that he should have
ftonie means of detaching himself, at
-will, from the balloon. This is
aiffordcd by tlie arrangement shown in
ont of tue small cuts. To the
vjiurtor guys of t'no l'loon is attached
n block of wood by means of a rope
passing through u h le in It. Above
this hole a knife blade is pivoted,
u'hich works in a slot in the block,
.and held out of contact with the
rone by a rubber baud. To tlie end of
this blade a rope i- attached leading
down to the aeronaut's hand. Ily u
-kcvoutl rope the parachute ban s from
the sumo b ock. Ills obvious that on
tmlling the cutting line the rope will
be. severed and the parachute detached.
One more appendage remains to bo
noticed. ilhin tlie parachute, near
its mouth, a wooden hoop I ft. in
diameter Is suspended, and by a proper
KysUiin of cuys Is held in a horrlzontal
(position. Tlie object of this Is to in
trnre the onenlng of the canvass.
The lnllatiou Is thus conducted: A
trench alxiut eighteen feet long, two
leot wide is dug in the earth where
tho balloon Is to be Indited, and, ex-:-pt
a smiill portion at each end, is
covered with iron, boards, and earth.
rvcr one end of an iron cylinder three

t.nls cylinder barrel staves aro placed
with earth between them and the Iron,
iortnlug a sort of rough lugging. On
?ach side of the chimney thus provided,
sand at a good distance therefrom, two
5)le twenty-eight feet high are
erected: each carries u pulley, and a
trope is rove through the pulleys and
srarrled through a ring on tho top of
the balloou. The mouth of tho balloou
i placed over the chimney, and, by
'taeuiiH of tho rope, the top is hoisted
well up from tho ground.

A nnmbcr of the assistants now stand

Tlie lat heating remains to be done.
At short interi als Kerosene is thrown
upon the lire, by this time largely con
sisting of a mass of very hot embers.
Tlie oil is at on e voatilid and
i msnes as a gas into the balloon, with
' in which it suddenly bursts into igni
tion, produ .-.ng a great sheet of flame,
plainly iistinguisliable through the
cloth. Tlil is repeated over and over
again, each addition of kerosene pro
ducing a great llame as it ignites, al
most with explosive violence, within
the expanded canvas, now straining
violently upward. The upper
end of the parachute during
the inllation lia.s been attached
to the balloon, and the aeronaut, Mr.
M. Ii. !acdonald of New Haven, Conn.,
professionally known as "Daring Don

loon is nearly ready, grasping the con
centrating ring. When all is prepared,
the word is given, and the balloon is
released. 'I he chimney Is covered,
and, as the balloon rises, the
aeronaut walks or runs forward
under it, and is carried up
clinging to the parachute ring.
A loop of rope is attached to the ring,
and, when some distance up, he steps
into thin loop and thrusts Ills licaJ up
through the concentrating hoop, so as
to leave bis hands fr e to manipulate
the cutting aope. When a sutlicient

himself over a favorable ground for a

descent is checked With some oscil
lation the earth in approached quite
rapidly; in half a minute or less the
surface is readied. The object of the
aperture in the center of the parachute
is to make these o-cillations as
slight as possible. The earth Is struck
with some violence, alxuit as if the
jump was from six or eight feet eleva
tion, indicating a velocity of about
twenty feet per s -coiid. The deserted
balloou capsies. owing to the greater
weight of its top, the hot air and
prod tuts of combustion with consider
able smoke escape, ami it collapses
and rapidly falls.
An the ascent is made, the entire
distance from the top of the balloon
to the aeronaut hanging to the para
chute is about IT, feet; tlie inflated

Tlie horv? is generally believed to
have but little activity of the brain.
It is stated that four hours' sleep out
of the twenty-four are all that lie re
quires. The fat t that be seems to need
. but little sleep is brought forward to
prove that he has little mental activ
ity. He is generally, in point of in
telligence. compart-d unfavorably with
. the dog. Wc must not forget, liow-
ier, that the dog is the companion of
man, received into the house and ac
customed from his earliest years to the
t-jcietyof intelligent people. His mind
lias been by this liieun developed, his
mental activity increased. And the
cumulative effect of heredity must not
le overlooked. The dog ha3 been in
an atmosphere of education for thou
.sand3 of years, but the horse has been
' left to the care of ignorant and brutal
, men, whoe only idea of enforcing
obedience ii by means of a loud, harsh
; word, a blow or a kick. When he is
, left in peace he is fastened generally
with his head to a blank wall, where
he can see nothing to interest Iifm.
, Sometimes he must stand for long
spaces of time in this war, the interm
inable, colorless day being broken
only by the process of cleaning and
i his "three feeds. When his nervous
nature under this strain invents some
way of amusing himself, and making
time go a little more rapidlv, he is
roughly bidden to stand stifl, or is
forced to stop his little play by the
lash, and earns the title of a vicious
brute. If a dog were subjected to the
same treatment, how long would it be
before he would require also only four
hours sleep by reason of a "low men
tal activity?" The Arabs make com
panions of their horses, and they get
m return the service of willing and
The horse has alwavs done more
reasoning than he hasliad credit for.
Has he not a clear idea of the ilightof
time when he called yoti out to the
stable to give him his dinner just at
noon? How docs he find his mistress'
house among a whole street full of
houses precisely alike, and never miss
stopping at tho right door? As to in
telligence and power of acquiring
knovledge; there can be no doubt,
and that implies attention, and also
an appreciation of the laws of associ
ation. The horse certainly can dis
tinguish some colors, for ho is afraid
of a red lantern wiieu ho docs not
mind u white one. I think there is no
doubt that lie also distinguishes green
from red. In color knowledge lie is
not, then, so far behind the Greeks of
Homer's time as judged by Mr. Glad
stone. He has certainly great power
of invention, and of adaptation of
means to non-existent cuds. And ho
does not fail in cunning, nor, I think,
in u sense of humor. The same ex
citement which moves us to honorable
action also stirs his nature; the same
discouragements lower his ambition,
and precisely the same treatment is
necessary with him as with children
in educating tlwni. We must never
forget that in the case of animals the
pupil cannot rise higher thun the
teacher, and that the teacher must bo
thoughtful and intelligent. Ho must
not only feel a kinship with his pupil,
buthu must recognize in him an indi
vidual character, and must adapt him
self to that. No two horses are aliko
in character any morc than two peo
plc. There is no need of losing a rido be
cause of rain, and there are more
pleasures given by a rido in tho rain
which tho "fair weather rider" never
can know pleasures of sight and of
smell, new iiscctJi of otherwise jicr
fectly familiar scenes, which nro al
most like a new creation. Nor need
our coldest winter weather deter any
one. A woman has decidedly tho ad
vantage over a man in winter, for her
skirts act tho part of a mull', and she
need never fear cold feet. In fact, sho
need fear no suH'oring fi-oin cold ex
cept in her hands. There arc no
gloves which will keen them warm
while- thoy hold tho bridle, but a vig
orous beating on tho hoi-so's elastic
quarters well behind tho saddlo will
soon send the warm blood tingling
through the lingers to their very tips,
and after that they will give no
trouble for a long time. As to cars,
thoy will never resist a rub and a quick
trot, and onco warm, they will always
stay so, as indeed would tho hands,
were it not for the enforced cramped
position ir tho lingers. It is of great
udvantago hero to bo mistress of two
bridle hands instead of one.
A warm double breasted overcoat
should bo worn, and then I know of
no more exhilarating thing than a fast
trot or a rapid gallop over tho crunch

OSEDIEKCE TO THE DEATH.
A Detectable Antedate of Napoleon, the
Czar, and the 1'rntilan King.
The editor of Gil Bias vouches for the
truth of this Btorr: Napoleon I was en
tertaining the Czar Alexander and the
Prussian Icing at breakfast in Tilsit,
, when tho conversation turned on loj-alty.
"My soldiers obeynie blindly," said
1 the czar.
S "And inino are anxions to die for me,"
a test of devotion was. agreed npon. The
royal party were breakfasting in the
fifth story of n building that faced a
paved street. Each member was to call
in one of hi.? Foldiers and command him
to jump from the window. Napoleon
made the first te;t.
"Call the Gardiate Marcna ." he com-
t i sr ... 1
"Will yon obey any order I give you?"
"Blindly, whatever it is?"
"Then jump out of that window."
"But I have a wife and two children.
"I will care for them. Forward!"
And the Gardisto Marcau, with a mili
tary salate, walked to the window and
leaped out. j
"Call a private of the body guard,"
ordered the czar, whose turn came next.
The soldier came.
"What's your name?"
"Well, Ivan, just throw yourself out
of that window."
"Yes, father," answered the guards
man, nnd he did it.
"Command the bravest of my soldiers
to come here," said the Prussian king to
his servant. A six foot uhlan, with a
row of orders across his breast and a
scar on his forehead, entered.
"My friend," explained the king, "to
show their loyalty a French and a Rus
sian guardsman have jumped at com
mand from that window. Have you the
pluck to do the Fame?"
"Is it for the fatherland?"
"Then I refuse to do it."
Gil Bias thinks this anecdote contains
a fine lesson for German army officers
of tho piesent.
A Tlioiuuml Year Ago.
In the year 000 after Christ what was
the state of Europe? The Goths, the
Vandals, the Franks, tho Huns, the Nor
mans, tho Turks and other barbaric
hordes had invaded and overthrown the
Roman empire, and had established
various kingdoms upon its ruins. Read
ing, writing nnd ciphering were peparate
and distinct trades. The masses of the
poor and rich aliko were wholly un
acquainted with tho mysteries of the
alphabet and the pen. A few men
known as "clerks." who belonged to the
priesthood, nionoiolized all learning and
set themselves up as special artists.
Kings did not know how to even sign
their names. When they wanted to
sign a written contract, law or treat",
which somo "clerk" had drawn up for
them, they would smear the right hand
with ink, and slap it down on the parch
ment, saying, "Witness my hand."
At a later dato some genius devised
tho 6ubstituto of tho eeal, which was
impressed instead of tho hand, but
oftener beside tho hand; henco the law
phrase, "Witness my hand and seal."
At tho dato of which we write every
gentleman had a coal with a peculiar de
vice thereon. There were no chimneys
in use; tho llro was built in the center
of tho house, smoke escaping through a
hole in tho roof. Chairs wcro unknown,
knives and forks wero unknown. Even
the nobility uat on boxes and blocks and
ate meat with their fingers. St. Louis

In tho ordinary processes of tho loom
tho warp threads are alwaya kept paral
lel In whatever way tho weft threads
may bo twisted around them. But in
making gauzo two adjoining warp
threads aro completely twisted around
each othor between tho two rows of tho
shuttle or casts of tho weft. Somo pe
culiar appendages of tho loom aro re
quired to effect this. Ono consequence
of tho modo of interlacing is that tho
texture is light, tho welt threads being
further apart than would bo practical in
other w ebs. In appearance, as well as
in modo of producing, gauzo occupies a
kind of medium position letween plain
weaving and plain laca or bobinet.

Tlie cultivation of walking sticks for
the market has been taken up as a busi
ness at some places in continental Europe,
and special attention is often paid to mak
ing the roots grow into shapely forms for
the handles. A London manufacturing
establishment, the floor space of which
covers nearly an acre, has extensive
storehouses filled wuh native and foreign
sticks, from which stock is drawn as it
is wanted from tho shops.
The sticks as they grow are often very
crooked and have to bo straightened. A
heap of sand is provided on tho top of a
hot stove, into which tho sticks are
plunged until they become pliable.
The workman takes tho crooked stick
while it is still hot and inserts it in a
notch cut in a stout board, placed at an
angle inclined from him, where ho bends
and strains it. When it has become per
fectly straight it is thrown down to
cool, after which it becomes rigid and
permanent in its lines. Heat is an im
