I confess that it was with some nervousness I took my seat in the littlo car beside Josoph Norcror.s, n skilled aeronaut, who had from dizzy heights made many and many a flight oarthwfifd through the air. Norcross smilingly welcomed me, nnd as he gave tho order to cast loose the lino and tho men on the ground released the great aerial traveler I felt myself afloat in a little boat upon an ether sea. There was tio . sudden jolt or jar about it, KO elovwly wa:? the release effected. Putting my head over the side of tho ear, I looked below and was surprised, for apparently we were not ascending, but tho great world, with all her glory of green and gold, was dropping ffoln us away down Into space. Then I gazed Upward at tho great birdlike balloon soaring triumphantly on. Again 1 looked down, and tho houses and burns seemed to crouch closer to tho ground and the villages to cluster together. Streams nnd lakes at last looked llko mere threads or blots of silver. Wo were fat from the. world. Suddenly wo were in a cold, drizzly rain, and tho earth was shut from view. I inquiringly looked at Norcross. "Wo have entered the clouds," was hi? smiling explanation, "and wo arc not yot a mile high." In flvo minutes wo emerged into beautiful sunshine. Beneath us lay a heavy bank of fog burnished by tho ardent afternoon sunlight, but tho earth for a time was not within sight. Suddenly, through a rift in tho clouds I caught a gllmpso of it far, far bolow. So distant was it that only here and there could an object on its surface be discerned* Truly wo woro getting well up in tho world. Tho thought at onco attracted my serious attention to tho balloon. Suppose it should spring a leak or collapse, what would bo tho fate of tho daring sky travelers, or, on tho other hand, if the valve lino failed to operate, would wo go on upward forever? Tho thought disturbed me not a little. Tho aeronaut surmised what was passing in my mind, smiled gen ially and said: '' I have made a thousand ascensions vm harmed. From what height would you liko to leap?" "Make it about 1,000 feet," I replied determinedly. "All right," Norcross responded as he scanned tho aerometer and promptly pulled open tho valve, preparatory to descending. Placing my hand out over tho side of the car, tho rush of cold air against my downttirncd palm indicated that wo were again swiftly journeying earthward. Soon wo were enveloped in tho fog of tho cloud- bank for a minute or two, and then emerged with tho distant earth in view. Tho glance at it from my perch thoro away up near the clouds only increased my nervousness. "Look up! Look, up," exclaimed the aeronaut, "or you'll loso your norvc." A"glarice downward when descending with tho parachute might, I know, turn my hair white or bring on a stroke of paralysis, as it had done in the oaso of some other mon. "Twenty-five hundred foot to the ground," exclaimed tho smiling Norcross. "Got ready." Ho then bound round my body under tho arms a stout ropo, tho other end of which was secured to tho trapozo bar in my hand, which bar in turn was attached to the parachute that hung at tho bottom of the car. "Leap as far out into the air as possible, and tho tightening of tho trapozo lino will reloaso tho parachute, which will open its IB foot spread in a ,second or two," ho said. "Then all you've got to do is to look up and hang on."' "(Twelve hundred foot!" shouted Norcross. I tightened my grasp on tho trapeze bar, looked steadfastly upward and awaited tho order to leap. It was tho most trying time of my life, but I was determined to make tho jump. "Go!" suddenly exclaimed tho aeronaut. Closing my oycs, I made a groat leap out into space and could fool myself rapidly shooting downward, Then tho trapozo lino tautened with a slight jerk that indicated the roloaso of tho closed, parachute, and I looked up just in time to catch a fleeing glimpso of Noroross' smiling faco peering over tho side of tho car far above mo. But tho parachute did not open, Tho seconds passed into a minute, and thou into throe, four, flvo minutes. Would tho parachute never open? Must I bo dashed to death on tho ground 1,000 foot below? Suddenly there came a sharp click from above, and my speed porceptibly slaokonod. Ah, tho parachute had'opened! My life •was saved! With an intense fooling of sat- 'isfaotion I felt myself deliberately descending, and, looking about, though not directly beneath me, took in tho scenic beauties of my joupnoy on every hand. But thero oamo ovor mo a grave fear. Suppose in my descent I should strike the top of a church steeple or one of tho many chimneys with which that section of the country abounded- Common sense, however, came to my rescue, Finally! mustered courage and looked directly below. The e»?th was approaching rapidly, Tho fences, trees, houses and barns became more a,nd more clearly outlined, and roofs seemed to rise diroptly out of the ground. Horses, oattlo and men roso rapidly from pygmy proportions to thelv normal size, I saw that I would land }n a broad pasture §eld about half a mile from where we haft ascended, and there was, not a chimney, roof or- tree '"•' }QO yards, There was nothing to Colonists at jflfliesto-wn Were the Port's Contemporaries. j The first j-rnnanent English settlement: in Amoritv. was at .Tamostown, Ya., in • 1007. \Villi:-.!:i .Shukesponre died nine >-<>::;••• later, in Hil't.

From 1007 mi tho colonization of Virgin:..! from England proceeded stoadily, and briskly, too. for that ago, it being especially noteworthy that this colonization fairly rr-pre^nt cd all England and war, restricted to any class or sect. Moreover, the England of "that day was Shakespeare's England—tlu! England from which he drow his characters, manners, speech, proverbs, and particularly all those traits find touches that give definite date and locality in his works. They wornS5hakospoare's contemporaries Who came over with Captain John Smith nnd his successors—the very men and women whom ho knew and drew so well, some of thir.i also knowing him, not only as a dramatist and actor, but also personally. Theru is a tradition, not fully verified nor yr-t. wholly discredited, that amors those early colonists was ono of the executors of Shakespeare's will, who lived and died at tVilcricksburg, it being commonly understood nnd accepted that, until C late war, fv;igments of the tombr-tone f-i this executor could still bo seen in an o!-. cemetery ni! that town. From liV'O the African settlement of IV | colony and its English sottloim.'nt proi-ei'ii- cd together, par! passu. Tho negro colonists, of i-'iurso, as slaves and barbarians. were put isv, tho lowest and coarsest hi-bur, and there, working side by side with English Hod}.".', from him they learned sue:; English and English folklore as they acquired. Later Hodge and the negro separated, and it WHS not long before tho latter was practically segregated, Hodge pro- grossing more or loss, with some exceptions, while Sambo, black and a slavo, was rapidly hedged about by strict laws and customs that sot him apart and kept him stationary. To educate him was a crime, but illiterate and barbarous as ho was tho first civilization and education ho received woro English, fresh from the soil of Shakespeare's England, and to this day ho legibly retains Shakespeare's mark as originally impressed upon him. Of course oven in slavery there were froodmcu, house and town servants and a few other uegi-oes from whom this impress was partially removed by their opportunities and associations, and many moro have lost it since emancipation and tho free school hiivo come, but tho mass of rural negroes, with some whites who have been subjected to very similar conditions, still remind ono of tho great dramatist by thoir doings nnd sayings, their proverbs, omens signs and peculiarities of speech. Thej sometimes exhibit an apparent familiaritj with Shakespeare in thoir words am phrases, but they do not know him at al —never heard of him.—Lippiucott's. M. P. ItARGAIJff. «. F. PKKK.

Tho designs are tho flrs things observed. Formerly there was scarcity of these, but now there is a flooc and a 'manufacturer must exorcise muc artistic tasto and business ability in mak ing selections. One was submitted to New England manufacturer recently by woman who stated that it was dictated b spirit?. The least that can bo said of it that it was not desirable. Varjloiis. designers have different special- ties-^somb flowers, '/others • architectural ideas, etc.—and of recent years architects have devoted many of their spare moments to originating all paper designs. A complete design consists of three pieces —side wall, border and ceiling. Tho general width of patterns of tho side wall and ceiling as used in tho trade and manufactured by American machinery is 18 inches, and tho length of tho repeat in tho pattern is either 11% or 14% or 17-% inches, as suggested by tho character of tho design, tho shorter repeats being tho most satisfactory to tho trade in general. Many of tho best effects are produced in papers' containing only four to sis colors, but as many as 20 or 85 are sometimes used. Each color and shade in a design means a separate roller to tho manufacturer.—Boston Herald. S. S. SESSIONS. ATTOXXBT AT LA If, Loans ami Insurance.

Thoro is no power of lovo so hard to got and to keep as a kind voice. A kind hand is deaf nnd dumb. It maybe rough in flesh'and blood, tho work of a soft heart, and do it with a soft touch. But there is no ono thing that lovo so much needs as a sweet voice to toll what it means and feels, apd it is hard to get and keep it in the right tone. One must start in youth and ho on tho watch night and day, at work and afrplay, to get and keep a, voice that shall speak at all times the thoughts of a kind heart. It is often in youth that one gets a voice or a tone that is sharp, and it sticks to him through life, and stirs up ill will and griof, and falls liko a drop of gall on tho sweets of home. Watch it day 1 by day as a pearl of groat price, for it will bo worth moro to you in days to come than tho best pearl hid in th6 seas. A kind, voice is to tho hoarfc what light is to the eyo. It is a light that singa as well as shines.-—Elihu Burritt. Royal Bills. It is tho etiquette of tho Paris trade never to send a bill to kings or queens— until they have lost their thrones and joined tho ranks of tho "kings in exile." One celebrated Paris dressmaker employs a secretary at ?S,000 a year for almost the sole purpose of ronUnding ladies of high rank, while seeming not to do so, that they pwe money and that payments »re desirable. Most of the queens', however, pay,with reasonable promptness, but the best oustpmors of ,J?repcli dressmakers and, jnlljjnpj-s are tho ladies of the Egyptian seraglios, who never complain about the sent them, and who pay the pills protest.—Now Orleans Times- C.
