Zeppelin Airship in a Storm.
Berlin, uno 23. The Tagcblatt
publishes a thrilling account by its
special correspondent, Arno Arndt,
of a disaster today to Count' Zeppe
lin's PuetscliJand' during a flight
from Dusseldorf. The fliglit began
at S:30n. in. ami all went well un

wind and ruin. Mr. Arndt' wan a
His narrative follows:
"'No anxiety prevailed even when
Director Colesniann said: 'We must
try n forced landing.' It was 11
o'clock then. One of the motors
had broke and the ship no longer
"Duly then did we. begin to grow
uneasy. Hour after hour wo strug
gled to make some town visible in
I i 2 o'clock the motor was re
paired, anil we began to hope that
all would be well. Hut suddenly the
bell in the cabin was" rung from
the front gondola. We opened the
door and saw Colesman signing to
three men clambering along the
aluminum framework. It was ex
plained that they were there to keep
the ship steady.
"From that instant we knew that
something was wrong; that the ship
was not under control.- Champagne
remained untouched on the tables
lis we crouched by the windows look
ing into a dense white cloud.
"Somebody said, 'We're rising
fast.' The gauge showed successive
.ly 1,000, 1,:500 and 1,500 meters.
We are being swept up on a whirl
wind. ' 'Director Colsmann.pale as death,
entered the car and said, ' I . don't
know what will happen.'
"Then followed what seemed
hours of angowy The ship became
very unsteady. We waited in dread.
"Suddenly the vessel dropped like
a stone 7o0 feet. We flung open
the windows and instantly noted the
fatal fact that the motor had stop
ped: "No power on cartlvcould save us
now. vVe couldn't stop our head
long descent. We all- waited" in
dread for the fearful crash which
should hurl us into eternity.
"One of the engineers in the for
ward gondola staggered into our car
with eyes staring wildly.
"Still the ship fell and fell, until

we saw the trees of Tentoburg Forest.
Every one held his breath waiting
in awful suspense.
'A moment more and there was a
horrible rending crash, and right
through the cabin floor burst the
top ot a tree with a long, jarring
shiver, and, God bo praised 1 the
hip was still. Our awful fall hud

- Gentlemen, the Deutscnlanu is
It was only that tree that had
. saved us, for it and three others
ripped through the hull and held
the vessel fast. Had we fallen on
solid ground nothing, probably,
could have averted an appalling
"The engineer climbed down a
rope ladder and tried to release the
shin by cutting the trees. Finally
. we all climbed out.leaving the ship
to its fate, and hurried away.
Whether the journey should
have been attempted in sreh weather
is doubtful. Certainly the collapse
oi the motors ana inability to re
lease the gas rapidly enough to pre
vent that whirling up to nearly
6,000 feet throws an unpleasant
light on the Zeppelin system."

their full power. But the helmsman
was unable to keep his course, and
the great craft was swung about at
the mercy of the winds.
Colesniann did not dare to turn
the ship around for fear of overturn
ing.and he decided to drift in the gale
which was now blowing at the rate
of fifty miles an hour, toward Osna'
bruck. If he missed that he would
continue on to Sonne.
Suddenly he preceived a whirl
wind coming, and he ascended to a
height of nearly 4,000 feet to avoid
the worst of it With the whirl
wind came an avalanehe of rain
After half on hour the Dutschland
came down to permit of observations,
and it was seen that the leutobur-
gian Forest lay below. The for
ward motor again stopped and Coles
niann sent five of the correspon
dents to the aft gondola to ballast
The Deutschland sank rapidly
and dragged along the top of the
denstt forest until a branch of a tree
broke through the floor of the cabin
amidships and held the ship fast
"It isn't the fault of the Zeppelin
system," said llerr Colesniann;

fault, and our benzine ran out
The airship, for which llerr Coles
mann's company had just paid

were not damaged. Hie silk was
ripped and' had fallen in a torn mass
on the top of the trees. A company
of infantry came from Osnabruek to
guard the wreckage.
