MARRIED IN A BALLOON.
An Army of Sight-Sccrs Witness the Cer
Manchester, N. H., Aug. 31.—
In the presence of the largest number
of people ever gathered within an
inclosed space in the State of 'New
Hampshire, Miss Addle Brooks and
Mr. James F. Boyd were united in
rnarrige ;yesterday afternoon. Tlie
nuptial knot was tied with the couple
standing within a car trimmed with
hiue and old gold plush, attached to a
mammoth balloon, christened “City
of Manchester.” Immediately after
tlio completion of tho marriage cere
inony, Mr. and Mrs. Boyd began their
married life, “far from the maddening
crowd,” by a voyage among the
The Manchester driviug park was
the scene of this most unique wedding,
and the affair formed the great event
of the Now Hampshire state fair for
1889. When the hour announced
for the marriage and subsequent as
cension in the balloon arrived, the
crowds within the grounds numbered
at least 30,000. A platform in the
centre of the Taco track, upon which
the ceremony was to be performed,
was surrounded by a dense mass of
humanity, pneked ns closely as sar
dines in a box. Through this crowd,
shortly before 3 o’clock a barouche
vainly sought to make its way.
“Make way for tlie bridal couple” was
passed along the line. But it was
impossible, to make way for anything
in that dense nfnss, and only the
brawny arms of six stalwart police
men could make the slightest impres
sion on the crowd. By dint of infi
nite exertionthe carriage was
brought to the-stand, and the bridal
party stepper! upon ’the platform
The bride was attired in a stylish
traveling costume of drab, and carri
ed a large bouquet of fragrant flowers.
She is sliglitly below the medium
height, with pleasing figure, light
hair, blue eyes and fair complexion.
She was born in New Boston in 1868,
and is, consequently, 21 years of age.
Her father and mother are both.liv
ing, the former, David M. Brooks,
being the village blacksmith of Bed
ford. Miss Addic came to this city
wliqn 10 years old, and has been em
ployed in the mills for a number of
years. She was attended by her sis
ter, Miss Ida Brooks, as bridesmaid.
Tho groom, Jamas F. Boyd, wore a
black cutaway coat and vest and light
trousers. lie was born in Manches
ter, England, 26 years ago, but enme
to this country when a child, sottlinc
in Lowell, Mass., where hliKjnother
now resides, lie came to this city
two years ago, and is employed ii;
the weaving department of the Amos
kcag mills. He is an intelligent np-
pouriug young man of medium height,
with auburn hair, and recently pre
pared himself for an aerial trip by
becoming a member of court Mcrri-
mac 6,462, A. O. F., of Lowell.
Arthur Murphy of Lowell, officiated
as his best man. With nover a trem
or, but with a smile on her pleasant
feature, the bride tripped gaylny to
the white velvet-lined basket, attach
ed 1 by its myriads of ropes, to the
grout swaying mass above, Hho was
assisted within tho car, and the groom
followed her. The bridemaid and
best man ranged themselves on cither
side of the basket. Hon, Hiram D.
Upton, speaker of the New Hamp
shire House of -Representatives then
performed the marriage ceremony,
using the brief legal formula,
Speaker Upton, nt the close of the
ceremony, said: “You arc now to
embark on a somewhat novel journey.
You will rise toward the blue vault
of heaven, and, as you look hack, you
will behold the things of earth dwarf
ed, its people shortened to pigmies,
its trees stunted, its rives shrunken to
brooks, its towns only specks on the
landscapes. Perhaps, rising higher
i^l, the whole view may be dissolved
in distance or obscured by some wan
dering cloud. In tho new relation
you arc now assuming, may' you rise
above and leave forever behind you
the jealousy and the selfishness of hu
man nature, and may the calm peace
of the upper air, above winds and
storms, be not mere Ferenc, nor the
sunlight of heaven above the clouds
not more bright, than the happiness
of your future lives.”
Hon. Herbert F. Norris, who with
the remnant, Prof. J. K. Allen, com
prised the only other passengers on
the City of Manchester, stepped into
the car and the word was given to let
go the drag rope at precisely 3 o’clock.
The huge balloon had been so evenly
balanced that in tho light air moving
it rose very slowly at first, amid the
waving of thousands of handkerchief^’
and shouts of myriads of upturned
faces. A small amount of sand was
thrown out, and the great air ship
moved upward with increasing speed,
but majestically, until the. soft breeze
had wated it over the southern section
of the city, and was in view for a long
The presents received by the bridal
pair were many, and comprised gifts
from nearly every business firm in
town. The New Hampshire Agricul
tural Society presented an outfit
valued at 8200, and this was largely
supplemented by other remembrances.
In conversation Miss Brooks said the
presents did not form any inducement
to he married in so public a manner,
but she had long desired to make a
balloon ascension, and so gladly wel
comed this opportunity. Prof. Al
len stated that this was the third
couple only who had ever made their
bridal tour in a balloon, the first
event of the kind occurring at Day-
ton, O., in 1876, and the second at
Providence, R. I., in 1888, when 35,-
000 people witnessed the ascension.
The balloon used is a new one, of
extra large size, capable of carrying
700 pounds weight beside the passen
gers. It is 86 feet fiom tip to tip,
and contained 45,000 cubic feet of
Tho balloon came down about 5
o’clock, landing easily and smoothly
in the front yard of Gilman Plainer,
Goffstown. The bridal couple
should be quickly settled by the
Of course it is true that the ideal
lawyer serves his client honestly and
truly, looking out for his interest and
not for his own fees. It is possible
that a majority of the members of thp
profession do this, but it remains a
fact that under nuy sensible and just
procecdurc, there is no need of 70,000
lawyers in the United States. The
experience of other nations, where
the administration of the law is far
more perfect, shows this to be a fact.
Of course, no authority can interfere
and say how many men can enter the
legal profession. This is a free coun
try and every man has a right to set
himself up as a council for his fellow
citizens in their disagreements with
each other ; but the government does
owe it to the people that the daws be
so changed that the decisions of the
courts on disputed questions |and in
criminal cases may be more promptly
obtained. Tho legal machinery which
produces results only after years of ef
fort, and after exhausting everybody
whose duty or interest it is to [keep it
in motion, is very badly designed.
Mr. Field discussed a very impor
THE ARIZONA KICKER.
The Law’s Delays.
The speech made by Hon. David
Dudley Field at the meeting of tho
National Bar Association in Chicago,
is attracting much attention, because
it deals on a subject in which there is
a great deal of popular interest. In
a general way, everybody feels that
there is a need of reform in our legal
procccdure, and especially a need of
expediting the business of the courts.
The principal complaint against our
courts, is not that they fail do justice
in their final decisions, hut that the
final decision in almost ovory criminal
easo above the grade of misdemeanor,
and civil suit, can bo delayed indefi
nitely, Justice is defeated ;by refus
ing to her permission to speak, or her
decisions deprived of value beciuup
of the requirement that they ho repea
ted again and again, each time at a
great cost to tho litigants who appeal
to her to sottlo their conflicting
Mr. Field pointed out a fact that
may have much to do with the ineffi
ciency of our courts. We have 70,-
000 lawyers in this country, whereas
Franco 1ms only 8,000 and Germany
7,000, Tho proportion of lawers to
tho population is in France, one to
4,7000, in Germany, one to 6,400 and
In the United States, one to 900.
One reason for this disparity is un
doubtedly due to the fact that in this
country the legal profession is the
recognized preparatory school to a po
litical career, and in no country is
the ambition to figure in public life
so prevalent. But to the lawyer, lit
igation is a business, an it is perfectly
natural that he should desiro to make
the "most out of his .business possible,
oan ho make most of litigation, which

We may possibly have been mistak

forger, embezzler, bigamist and escap

to pull his neck as a warning. If so,
we are very sorry. Tlie only way he
can satisfy us of his integrity, is to
frownupon anything like a skin game

Sole Aoent.—Wc have been ap

Kentucky hemp company, limited,
and will he the only one handling
their famous “No. 6” rope. This
rope, as most of our readers arc aware,
is made for and exclusively used as
neckties for bad men. It will stand
tlie greatest strain, run easier, fit
tighter, and give more genera] satis
faction than any other hanging rope
in the market. • No matter what sort
of a neck a man has, this ropo settles
to the right spot at once. Wc sell it

more is wanted tlie price will he
