In LukedesOulll7.es. where thl'V intend

when within about llfty miles si the lake.
amid tliu dense and untrodden forest
tlironf;h which the Montreal river
runs, that the doomed aeronaut
wa.1 found, partly protected by the ruins
ofallsliIiiL'-liut. with his left arm and 1
broken, and starvation slowly makiii'' its
w:iv ai'aln-t the few roots and berries
tliat lie had been able to draff himself out
to gather. Gangrene had alo set In. in
consequence of Ids unattended wounds,
and even the most ttuprolelonal eye
could H-e that death wa- incvitauie. aud
that n lew more hours inut terminate
his sufferings. And yet It must have
been a grand thing, judging from Mr,
Wil'on's narrative, to note how thiMiia''-
nlllcent physique and dare-devil spirit of
the man rose iriumimaui over pain aim
death. Shattered, starved, dying, as lie
wa. hi? bearing wtii as proud and self-
reliant us lu the hours ol his perfect
prime, and his voice, through all the
story of his sullerings, was llrm aud un
broken to the hut. The narrative which
Mr. WiUou noted down Iroin the lips ot
the dying man Is too long lor our space,
but the lirsl portion Nsn lull of thrilling
intere-t that we give It In his own words:
The fact that the wind, upon our llrst
rlmiiK. uiirrlei) us directly upon thu hike
did not disturb me a particle, for that
had been my plan from tliu llrat. Tliu
breeze was a still' one, and Its trend audi
as to carry us directly across Into Michi
gan lontr "before the natural loss of "as
could have exceeded the amount of bal
last that I coul I throw out. Oucc iu
Michigan, I intended to seek a lauding iu
the wood;, to lie quiet until our abecnee
had given us stilllclent advertising, and
then report at the nearest town. The storm
up-et all our calculations. It struck Us
about midway in the lake, aud at an ele
vation of about two thousand tcct. It
needed hut a few moments to .-how tue
that dl-aster was inevitable, x ou see a
storm is not necessarily dangcrotw to a
balloon provided It be slow iu its rise and
steady in its progress. The balloon
moves as rapidly as the air. aud
thus escapes injury, lint tills storm
was a succession of furious gifts, col-
lap-lug the balloon on one side before it
could yield on the other, and driving the
gas out ot the neck iu such volumes at al
most to stitle tis. Ot course, to fasten up
thu neck would have resulted Iu immedi
ate bursting. We had to let tliu gas go,
though our lives were going with it,
Thu niln, too, added greatly to the weight
ot the balloon, ami in less man ten mm
utes all our ballast was out and we were
still settling. An immediate di-chargc of
all the ballast at tliu time the storm Urst
struck us might nosslbly have shot the
balloon up clear of thu storm level, but I
feared, at the llr.t moment, to ri-k n
counter current that should carry us up
the lake, and In the next wu were so
stupetled with the escaping gas as to be
able to work only with great dilllculty
and sloivness. It was only when the bal
last was gone, and our descent still rapid,
that the thought forced Its way Into my
mind that one ol us must die to save the
"I think the thought occurred to Mr,
Grimwood at the same moment as to
mvself, only witlt this difference, that to
me it was only anew element of danger
which I had confronted all my lllctlme
1 faced it quietly. To hint It had an ap
nalllng stranguness he sat cowering in
the basket, his teeth chattering, his face
livid, his hair blowing wildly In tliu storm
sir ; and all this occurred more quickly
than I can tell It tovott. How the matter I
would have ended i my mind I cannot .
say, had I not seen nt that moment Mr.
Orlmwood trying to draw .a Derringer
from his pocket. Ills hand trcmnied so
that I have no Idea, now, lhat he could
have hit me ; hut tho movement was suf-
lleient to end my hesitation, ah tue in
stinct ol sell-prcervatloti leaped to my
i.nisnii.. m,i it GciMiiixl to inu but a sim
ple wave ot mv hand belorc Orlmwood
was falling toward the lake, and tliu bal
loon shooting up above the storm, 'lho
scream or agony which the poor wretj-h
trailed down to the water was horrible,
horrible. I can hear It yet ; but I do not
regret what I did. It was mv life agahut
his; and my life was the bettor ol the
Thu remainder of the narrative Is lull
of interest, but too discursive for our
snace. Once iu the quieter air ami re
lieved of Orimwood's weight thu balloon
pursued its course up tliu lane aim acros
tliu straits or Mackinac into. auaua,
thence returning again lu a direction a
little south of cat. It was undoubtedly
the same balloon that was telegraphed
from Aurora, Ontario, to the Associated
I'ress, on .Inly 21, It having passed over
there two days previous. Donaldson,
then, according to Mr. WHmhi's narrative,
must have been lying unconscious
lu the bottom of thu bakct, the basket
Itself being careened in consequence of
thu breaking of the netting
on thu side where Grim-
wood was thrown out. 'lhc aero
naut was routed from his faint by the
crashing of thu bakct among thu tree-
tops, but roued only to be thrown vio
lently to the ground, with the Injuries be
fore mentioned. Hut for his broken
limbs, there Is little doubt that his great
uliy.slc.il endurance nnd nerve would
have carried 111 m safely out of the wilder
ness ; but, Injured as he wa, death was
only a matter ol a few days. Some pro
visions, rescued from the" wreck of the
balloon, together with 'iich sustenance as
hu could gather from the forest, kept
body and soul together for a short time ;
but, once In the hands of his fellow-beings,
and his story told, the will which
had sustained him seemed to fail, and a
quiet death soon followed. Mr. Wilson
returned immediately with thu report,
and his comrades are following more
slowly with the remain;.
