LOVE IN THE CLOUDS.
Fifty-four years nuo I took ti run
through France, bocnusolhail plenty of
money nnu nothing t6 do. Igottliroligh
tho northern departments pretty fast j
but I inndo ti rather lengthy stay. In
Aiivcrgno, among the inns j In fact;
stayed there all of ono suramer.
.1 arrived therein the early days of
spring, when tho wild blooms of tho
commons wero fresh nnd now, und the
leaves of tho grapo wcro silky ami light
green. Tho country was so wildly beau
tiful, anil the air so lifoglvlng, that I
could do no less that to decido that I
would tarry for n fow days. A mighty
fine placo that Auvargno Is for a young
fellow of twenty-one : for, truly, tho
skies aro fair and maids aro fond.
doubt if thero Is a spot of equal slzo.uii
ess It bo CIrcassIa, whero tho samo
amount of femalo loveliness may' be
found that is to say, unless It has
changed amazingly sinco I, was there
well, not to bo. tedious. I came, I
saw, and was conquered by a littlo maid
whom I shall call, for convenience,
Marie her surname is of no conso
quence. alio was tho daughter oi a
count, and beautiful as tho, creation, ot a
dream. So beautiful was she, that I lov
ed her with all tho soul I had, and
my. attachment grow stronger and
stronger dally. I boated upon tlio wa
ter with her, and rodo among tho hills.
I wad Hko hor'sha'dow liko her second
self j only wo were of different sexes.
Soon J discovered that tlibro was somo
secret sorrow preying upon her somo
blight of tho mind that deadened all her
pleasures ; and begun to think that my
suit was'vain. ThlS'Idea almost took
away my wits; bur to know tho best or
tho worst) I resolved ib bring mattcrd
to a crisis by offering myself to her,body
and .soul. This I did; and met witli
what I feared a refusal.
"I respect you," said'sho, in a French
phrasu i "hut, ohl heavens I I can
lovo you never. I shall nover love a
"Again 1'' said Lwlldly. "And Jiavo
you loved another?" '
"Ah 1" she- replied ; "how well 1 I
have loved as woman never loved be
fore .us' woiiinn shall never lovo
Then I felt that I was fast becoming
a sort of second fiddlo hero In n French
romance; and It mattered littlo to mo
when, where, or1 how slio was loved;
yet, to" carry out tho matter lo Itslogical
sequence, I Inquired us to tho particu
lars. 'Must I, alas I must I," 'cried Marie,
wringing her lauds "must I onco
moro tell that talo of horror? Oh, Mon
sieur Raynor.I cannot, I cannotj indeed,
I cannot relato it now. Conic to mo to
morrow, when tho sun goes down I am
calmer then ; and I will onco moro, for

I went home, with my mind lu tho
condition of a vessel thatls being driven
about by tho angry gale. My hopes
wero u hopeless wreck j and feeling that
I had'nothliig now to. attach mo to e.is

Can It bo,I asked of myself, that Maria

Oh, perish tho thought j gho wishes to

Tho day camo upon tho cartli.tlio'next

Tho landscape was gorgeous with tho

l sat down besijlo her, and l( was for
tho last time. Bho then narrated to ino
a story In, as nearly as, I can reproduce
them, tho followlng'words:
Tlireo years.ago I lived tit Troyos, In
Champagne, with my father. I was as
Joyous nnd happy u maiden as lived
uny Where in Franco. My, friends said 1
wasas. bcilutiful.ad it picture of the Vir
gin, and I myself knew tlint 1 sung-the
lH-elong day llkou bird., My father, as
you know, Is a member of that depart
mcnt of tho Government which has the
carooflhu mechanical Interests' of the
Empire, and, cotiseqtitntly, has for
many' yearn cultivated the society of
such persons us tro acquainted with the
parts and the practical workings of.ull
kinds of machines; null, while wo lived
at Troyes, our visitor wcro chleily men
of that class, whom my father would bo
closeted with f6r'houri, engaged In ma
king drawings and models. One of our
visitors was n youtiggcnticmiiii,a mem
ber of one of tho decayed families of no
bility. He, I learned casually, camo
also bti business' connected with my
father's ofllco, Io soon began to bo very
attentive to mo, and he was all that was
good and nobo. I gradually camo to
love hlin ; but, being naturally coquet
tish, when he oirercd mo his heart and
baud, I refused, although my heart was
bleeding for him all tho time.
Oh, how ho was stricken when I told
him I would not lovo him 1 and how ho
went nbout talking with tho air for
weeks! I did not, however, cast him
off; no, no, I loved him tco well for
that. I gavo' him my sincere and sweet
est Millies, knowing that after a while,!
would accept him ; nnd then T would
frown and pout, Just fortho pleasure it
gavo me lo see him temporarily miser-,
able for my mike. Well; monsieur, I
would not tiro you, und 1 will hasten.
M. Alexan Iw Gerard for this was his
name on three separate occasions, fell
upon his kneos before me, nnd prayed
that I would havo meicy upon him ;
and for the third time, I affected to
spurn'h is offered hand. Still he Mutter
ed about mo j tout I could seo that a
chango had come over him. Ho wns
not, so .llght-hcartcd as, formerly ; his
eyes began to appear grave, and I had
Just conio to thu conclusion when ho de
clared his passion again to me I would
accept, because IJinew I had pressed
hilli with coquetry about as far as was
Jut then Alexandre disappeared. Ho
wits gone for moro than a week, whon
as I uxpec'ted, and as I had so keenly
desired, camo back. Now there wero
smlles'tipoit'hW beautiful features when
heasked mo to rido with 'him, and I,
was happy in tho thought than when
ho had driven to Arnioromaritic'spot ho
would again request ,iny hand, for I)
wns sure I, should not deny him uguln.
Oh. monsiour,it wns heaven to mo to
bo tints near him again I Ills soul seem
ed to have divined the. truo stato of my
feelings for him: nnd all his words wero
oflovo fir mo, and of tho p.iradiso of a1
hoinu to which ho would lake me.
Aflcr a while wo came to a point
wheru tho iorest bbrdercd the road up
on one side, nud my lover stopped tho
"Let us'dd.-cend," said ho, "my own,'
my darling; lot us alight, and walk1
among tlio 'shadows of' the grand old
forest, for here wo may meet faco to faco
with Nnture'rt self, and hold'sweet con-
verso with' her."
Then wo nllL'lited from tho cairhige.
IIo'w supremely happy I was thus to bo
ulouo with him that I loved best of all
else on earth I I leaned upon his arm.
He was'struligcly eloquent nil tho tluiu
that WO trod the mazes of the woods.
"Everything Js" beautiful," said he,
"everything ethereal; the tarfh, the
trees, sky, nil, nl aro glittering. Thd
birds warble'tholr softest songs, and the
flowers exhale their sweetest odors for
you. ' Rut oh 1 none of these will com

Our walk led us to a fairy spot whero
grow many sweet flowers ; and ono of
them became moro sweet, moro price
less' than tlio others, hecauso Alexandre
plucked It and gave It to me."
" Smell tho fragrant bloom," wild he,
'sweet Marie; It Is odorous and falr.yct
not half so fair as you."
I took tho flower nnd smelt It.
"Tho scent Is very Bwcct, indeed," I
"You love It, then, Mario," said ho.
I have hero the triple distilled extract
of thateamo blossom."
nd Alexandre took from his pocket
a vial of perfume, und poured some up
on o white handkorchirf.
"My love," hosnitl, "tho odor of tho
flowor Is too gross for so nngclie a be

to bo raised to an Ijicqneelvablo, aij

downward Into the endless abyta of

that I was nbout to attain to tho nicaUtit
or annihilation, taught by the religion
of the Uunnans. After this, 1 thought
and felt no moro, nnd must havo been'
lor sometlmons dead.
When consciousness eomo to me, I
was; reclining In a small cointiartmcnt
closed ull round, which wns mado of
bamboo wicker work, and hung with
damask curtains. It was open at tho
top; und, a opened my eyes, I could
see nbovo mo the circular, shining gido
of homo great body, with a great num
ber of cords runnlngdownwnrd from It
and scouted to tho framework Just over
my head. Heyond this I could seo tho
blue sky, with hen! and there a floating
wlilto cloud ; a fow feet from me, also
above, I saw the flag of Franco floating
In tho breeze. I wns sensible of n sort
ofinotlort, which gave mo sensations
such as I. havo felt when n littlo girl in
a swing. Close by mo sat Alexandre
Gerard, with some bales of w'hnt I took
to bo tarred hemp. He wns gazing up
on mo with Joy In ids eyes.
"Oh, Alexandre!" I cried, "where

a trackless path, lovo; but I know the
way. Aro you not happy, dearest? Re
niovo the curtain near you; takonlook,
and say if tho way la not clear ?"
I felt sick with theswlngliigof wiiich
I hnvo spoken, and very languid : but
I did as ho desired. I withdrew tho
curtain, nnd looked out. Oh. tho scene
which met my gaze. Wo wero in mid
Yes, were lu mid air; and, as I cast
my eyes downward, through the awful
depth between mo and tho earth, I saw
tho country, spreading out toward tho
horizon, looking less liko a map than
tho bottom of a vast bowl. Throutrh
tho midst thero was aserpcntine.sllvery
line, that glittered Hko polished metal:
and in tho centre, exactly beneath, lay
a town with many bunrlshed spires.
"Great heaven I" I cried, with my
brain swimming. "Alexandre tell me.
oh, I conjuro you, tell mo whnt menus
It means," ho replied, "that we are
on tho way to our futuro chateau in
cloud-land; nnd 1 believe," rising up
and looking downward; "and I believe

I cannot describo what ray feelings
wero then. I was speechless with hor
ror nud amazement, for I realized that
I was more than two miles from earth
in a balloon, with an aeronaut whom
coquetry had deprived of reason.. I sank
down nnd lay as ono dead, for I know
not how long, in tho bottom of tho car.
Aroused by tho voico of Alexandre, J
startcd quickly to my feet, but was pre
cipitated immediately against tho oppo
site side. Tho balloon wns driving
along at n fearful rate, nnd the wind was
blbwlng nn nwful galo. Oh.how the car
didawlng, and tho wind whistle among
tho ropes 1
"Oh, God 1" I cried, ns Isntupngalii,
"I am lost!"
"Lost, darling? Why.no, you nro
not. I know whero wo are exactly; and
if If wcro not that a stratum of clouds
lies between us and tho earth; which
wo have quitted forever, I could show
you the city pf Tours. Wo nro not moro
than eighteen or twenty miles to tho
northward of it. Ro calm, my love! I
am calm. as a midsummer's eve."
"Oh, Alexandre," I cried, "I pray
you let this dreadful machine descend to
the earth, nud I will bless your name
forever nay, ,1 will give you myself,
body and soul I"
"Poor woman ! you forgot that we
aro already married, and that you are
mini; while- life lasts. Descend? Ah,
my cherub J it grieves ineto the soul to
deny youu request made thus early;
but, would yoii return to thatold,chllly,
ball, called earth ? I had thought better
things of ypu, Mario mine, than this.
lJelievo me, tho world Is not for such
ns you; thero is naught but disappoint
nient thero ; none of our darling dreams
aro tiiero realized; it Is over thus with
those who ivo there, that Just as they
expect their dearest hopes aro about to
bo realized, that the cup of expectation
Isjust being changed to that of enjoy-
;,;lt is rudely dashed from iheir
hands, and thoy nro miserable. Ask
mo anything but to descend, audi will
grant it with Joy to my Marie."
To my infinite. Joy, I could presontly
feel that tho. machine was rapidly set
tling. A few minutes later, upon look
ing out, I saw that wo wero nmonghomo
dense clouds, which surrounded us
above, below, and upon ovcryslde. Oh,
thought I, if it could only bo that 11,y
mad lover's fsupply of gas should be-
como exhausted ! As tills thought flash
ed across my brain, he, too, seemed Im
proved with tho Idea that wo, were gra
vitating., "Ijie gas is running law, Mario,"
snd he, "and a good aeronaut, liko iny
celf or tho Moutgolflers, should seo that
the supply is kept up."
Then ho took ono ot tho balls, and
carried it up into tlio upper lmi1 f '!10
balloon. Immediately I felt that tlio
muchlno was rising again. We shot up
out of tho clouds, into thu broad ghiru of
tho sun; and I could Bee the shadaw of
the machine driving along upon tho
billowy surface at appalling spced.Thon
I swooned away uguln.
How long I remained unconscious I
do not ktiow. When I awoke, Alexau
dm had hold of inyiirm trying to annuo
"Ah, my love," ho began, "thero Is a

For an hour longer I lay in tho bot
tom of the car, as, ono hi the midst of a
trance. Afterawhllo I began lo reflect.
I turned my eyes upward, and gnztd
at the huge dark side of tho balloon.
How quick tlio descent would be,
thought I, if an accident should mako

"Marie, como hc-ie,"eried Alexandie,
exultlngly ; "ho for tho tea and heaven!
Farewell farewell to France! Adieu

Ho removed the damask. and I be
held the, inachino sweeninrr off (ho
shore, and away to sea!
Now to descend would.be death. Rut
then death had long been certain, and
tho thought of it had lost all its bitter
ness for mo. No terror could frighten
mo now. Tho sooner, thought I, the
catastrophe comes, tho better. Tho
machine did not, swing now. It was
riding In tho still air tlint prevails at
sunset. I looked upward again, as I
had somo moments before heard a
strango fluttering sound from tho tipper
part of tho baloou. Thero I saw a thill
stream of smoko issuimr from the sido
of .tho canvass. Tho next niomeiit.lho

hnd been burnt in twain and was blaz

Curious n nil InfcrcKtlim- History
"f tlicJMost Itcmnrnnliio lad
Stone l'trlmps Intlie World.
For tho first time In our lifo wo saw,
yesterday, u gunulno 'mnd-slono and
heard Its history from tho owner, who
inherited It from Ids father. Tho fortu.
ualo possessor Is Colonel B. Lco Milam,
of Wotcrford, Marshal county, Missis
sippi. Colonel Milam lan prominent
citizen of his county.and his statements
set at re.t nny doubts which wo muy
have had about tho clllcacy of mud-ktouo
In curing tho bites of mad dogs, cats,
snakes, spiders, or uny other venomous
animals or Insects. Colonel Lco Milam
Is a native of Madison county, North
Alabama, from whenco ho removed in
1835. Tho family came from Virginia,
and tlio Colonel inherits also his middle
name, being n second cousin of General
Robert E. Lee.
Tho mad-stone In his possession is
about tho size of a hen egg ; as heavy
as so much brick and rather moro por
ous, and is of a light clayish color. Ono
end is flat as if It had been sawed off,
and n grain runs through tho stone from
end to end ns If It hnd, In some former
age, been so much wood or bono. About
llfty years ago this stono was Bpllt In
three or four pieces, but was carefully
fustoned together with a wire, which
still perlorms Its olllco. Tho stono wns
brought from China, in tho year 1810,
by Dr. Darker. Tho doctor died in n
fow years, nnd tho stono was sold nt
public salo nmong his other property.
Mr. Jarvis Milam, tho colonel's father,
j;as the purchaser, and at his death he
willed tho stone to tho present owner,
with tho condition that all tho family
should havo tho use of It ns often as
necessary, freo of charge.
As to its virtues, Colonel Lco Milam
states that It has been npplled with suc
cess In over one thousand eases, and has
only failed in1 two, and In thoso tho
parts affected could not bo successfully
reached. Ho has used It himself over
two hundred and fifty times. When
tho poison Is all extracted the stono
falls off. During tlio process a very
ofrenslvo stench fills tho room, making
tho air sickening in the extreme. Tho
stono Is then soaked lu warm water
from, twenty-four to thlrty-Blx hours,
when it again becomes ready for use.
Colonel Milam assures us that he. can
euro any case of dog, snako or any other
bito whero madness or dissolution has
not actually set lu. Cures have been
effected oven as long ns two weeks after
tho bite. Lost week the stono wns suc
cessfully tried In several eases. It is
known for many leagues around, nnd
the people comdfrum far and near to bo
Colonel Milam has been offered fivo
thousand dollars for this wonderful
stone, but always refused to entertain
the proposition. . Ho taid playfully,
yestordny, that ho might sell it for ten
thousand dollars if the buyer would
promise to always allow him tho uso of
