Now York, Nov. 16.-A big dun
colored balloon floated slowly over
the Hudson from the Jersey shore to
ward New York Tuesday. Ten? of
thousands of persons watched it. On
a trapeze swung below it a man was
seated. The balloon was about 500
feet in the air and opposite 127th
street, when
Boom! Boom!
Two loud explosions sounded. In
stantly after the explosion a cloud of
dense black smoke enveloped the bal
loon and hld tho man on the cross
bar IItide? ?I
Thro iii the thick smoko dashes of
'\r<> darted-, for tho I) al loon w.?-? in

formed n hing? luushroom, th?.; man
dropped from the cross-bar. For 200
feet he fell like a stone while the peo
ple nearest the shore gasped.
Then tho big parachute which the
man carried unfolded, and, clinging
to lt, he dropped gently in the Hud
son.
Really it all was very thrilling and
if you were not there to see it, you
will be able to see it soon. For it
was a moving picture stunt. He of
( the trapeze and thc parachute was
Podinna Law, who for a sufficient
sum of money will take his life in
his hands at any time.
His balloon had been inflated with
heated nnptha gas. Seated on the
trapeze the daring Law held a string
attached to a trigger above him
v, hen he pulled tho string the trigger
set off a small charge of dynamite,
which ignited the highly inflammable
gas.
As Law fell into the river the tug
Libbie sped to him. On the tug were
thc moving picture machines. Their
operators had been very busy, Indeed,
and continued to bo for a while. For
Law floated near the tug as If he was
senseless, inanimate, dead-all very
realistic, very.
Law received $1,000 to risk his
life this time, but he paid his own
expenses. He Insisted that, his dem
onstration had scientific value. He
proved, he said, that Melvin Vanlman
and his four voyagers, who were
killed when Vanlman's great dirigi
ble balloon exploded off Atlantic
City, might bave been saved had they
taken proper precautions against such
an accident. Law wore knit woolen
garments saturated In a liquid which,
he says, resists Are. Under Ms wool
en hood ho woro a foot ball player's
helmet. A life-preserver was strap
ped around his waist.
"When the gas exploded," said he,
"lt was as If somebody had hit me
over tho shoulders with a base ball
bat."
Tho backs of Law's hands were
scorched.
"How stupid!" said he. "1 should
havo worn gloves."
