J "D > jou ask me how the despoti m of

beilt ve in the ballot—the easiest weapon
to ns , and tie one weapon of which
power stands In dr-adly fear. I believe
the billot sh uld be In the hands of
every Auisrio. n wouan. There is no
pliaae of eiirtance that woman I as npt
brightened, and the Atreiloan political
y ein will become free from tarnish,
and take on lustre whenever woman is
established in the elective franchise,
"We woulJ not return the *lvss and
mo hers of Idaho to subjection any more
t<iai we would take the other backward
steps Into barbarism. The happy exper-
ience of the past few yt am ha) rendered
us proof agdluet ridicule—and the falae

In a Balloon From
Paris to Hungary.
Jacques Paure, who went with
a company in a balloon from
Paris to Leutschau,Hungary,875
miles, gave a description of his
voyage above the clouds and of
the night j >urney through glow-
ing moonlight in freezing weather.
"^.ri quitting Paris," he said,
"we rose to an altitude cf ti,000
feet above tin clouds. Above us
however, at about 12,000 from
the earth, was another cloud
belt. We whirled along between
these two belts in a clear but
frightfully cold atmosphere. All
>ur water and other liquids were
t'r< zen solid. Hail d> cended con-
tinually. At midnight exactly, a
remarkable disturbance in con-
ditions took place. The cloud
bank* above and below us split
as if by magic, and we again saw
the oartn beneath us. I believe
the mass of light we saw beneath
us must have been Strasburg.
"Prom that onward I was able
to tell our bearing by the light ol
the pole star. From midnight
to 5.30 o'clock in the morning we
ulided along in the glow of a mag-
"At 0 o'clock in the morning
we rose to 12,000 feet and con-
tinued to rise. We were swept
along at a speed of nearly seventy
five miles per hour. All this
time the morning sun was ex-
panding the gas in the 1 alloon
ani we were drying ours Ives
nicely. Yet all the time we wer
gradually sir.king. Over board
had gone all our ballast,our spare
clothes, baps of provisions—in
fiet everything that tended t:>
weight us do .vn We were rac-
ing, and took e<ery advantage,
but all was toe ess. The mo
ment had come, ; s it comes to
all balloonists, when the [jas
must dissipate into the air. We
were 1">,0 '0 feet above ground
and still hurrying alonir wl en
the decent began. In seven min
utes we had d'-opp d through
12,^00 feet of space. In twenty
minutes we came down in some
trees in the neighborhood of
Leutscha We came int > contact
with the < arth gently and suffer-
ed no damage.
