The Fearful Death of an
Aeronaut in Iowa.
From the Wapello (la.) Republican, Sept. 26.
One of the most frightful
scenes that men and women
are ever called upon to wit
ness occurred at this place
Thursday, Sept. 25th, at about
half past 5 o'clock, p. m. the
spectacle of a man descending
from a great height with great
rapidity, with the certainty
that in a moment he will be
dashed to pieces.
John U. Boley has been
malting ascensions in Illinois
and in this State recently in a
hot air balloon. The manner
of inflation is as follows: lie
digs a trench some twenty.
five leet long, and two or three
feet deep and wide. This is
tilled with dry wood and other
combustible matter, and cover
ed over. - At the mouth the
fire is set, and a large barrel,
with a sieve in each end to
keep out cindere, and covered
with cement to prevent burn'
ing, constitutes the chimney
at the other end. Over the
chimney the mouth ot the bal
loon is placed, to cbtch the
heat H8 it rises. The mouth of
the balloon is secured to a
strong wooden hoop mx or
eight feet is diameter, and to
this hoop are fastened the
ropes that descend to the bar
upon which the teronaut
stands in his giddy flight. De
did not use a basket, as is
aual. During the process of
inflation the flames come up
into the barrel, and frequently
ten or twelve feet into the
body of the balloon. When
the balloon is full, and just be
fore starting, it is customary
to have some trusty man en
ter the mouth of the balloon
and place a cover over the top
of the barrel, so as to prevent
danger from fire. 11 is cousin,
James R. Ibpence, whodavels
wilh him, usually performs
this duty. Occasionally Mr.
Boley has started without this
precaution, but it is hazard
ous, and once before his bal-
oon caught fire, burning slow
ly without LliiZing, and be got
down in salety. Thursday Mr.
Spence was unwell, and could
not stand the intense heat of
the balloon, and the ascent
was attempted without the
precaution ol covering the bar
rel. The bickeumg eceuetbat
lollowed was the unfortuuate
The wind was blowing brisk
ly from the south, and it was
not prudent to make the at
tempt, but the Prolessor was
to receive some pecuniary aid
from the Agricultural Socity,
and oue or two ol the Board ot
Mauagers had given their as
bent to the appropriation only
on the ground that one ol the
ascensions should be made
that day. llence the induce
ment, lu part at least, to brave
the peril. Mr. Boley was a
brave, conscientious man, and
he lelt that he must redeem
his promise to make the as
No sooner had the balloon
oeen let go, than, to the hor
ror and dismay of every one
it was discovered to be on fire
near its mouth, and the Pro
lessor, instead of standing on
his bar, was holding to li with
bis hands and dangling below.
It was a tearful sight, that
sent an indescribable shudder
through the crowd. There was
no outcry, but a sort of smoth
ered groan that was more ap
palling Women sank to the
ground, or hid their eyes, or
burst into tears, and men held
their breath in awful suspense.
Mr. Boley did not appear to
no'ice the fire until he had
gained an altitude ol a bun
dred feet or more, and then it
was too late to let go. Be
sides, bis assistants say that
i he balloon was not fully in-
dated, and no one of them
thought it would rise so high
But up it shot, and he heldjon
to his frail support, the flames
every moment catting away
i he canvas above the hoop,
and thus hurrying the instant
that would launch him into
eternity, Ibere were long
ropes attached to the top of
the balloon that had been used
during the Inflation to control
it, and one of these swinging
out over the sphere came near
him several times, and he at
tempted to grasp it. Could he
have done so, he would have
had other means of support,
besides his weight on this
would have inverted the bal
loon, turning the burning end
up, and though he might have
descended with uncomfortable
rapidity, it is probable that the
volume of canvas would have
saved him. But he missed his
grasp and lost his bat in the
effort, which came whirling
down in advance. A moment
more and the canvas parted,
and he came darting through
space, feet foremost, like an
arrow. Who can ever forget
the sight that witnessed it?
The fall occupied but a few
seconds, but they seemed all
lie fell in a stubble field of
low ground nearly a half a
mile from the starting point,
coming down on his feet wilh
such force as to drive them in
the ground a foot, and break
ing the bones of his legs in
many places, and thrusting
their ragged ends through the
flesh. The body, bead, and
arras were not visibly injured.
The upper end of the balloon,
shortly after be lelt it, turned
inside out, and fell, a burning
mass, a quarter of a mile away.
John li. Boley was born in
Alleghany county, Pa. lie
moved to Allensville, Vinton
county, O., leaving that place
last June (25ih) lor Aledo, 111.
Ilis age is abcut 31. lie had
made twenty-eight ascensions
before coming west, and has
made twelve since. He leaves
a wile ana four children in
destitute circumstances. Ilis
wife has been staying in Ohio,
and the three oldest children
are now (here. Recently she
became so uneasy about him
that she felt she must come
soon or never see him again.
She was here and entreated
him several times during in
flation not to make the ascen
sion, as she felt he would nev
er come down alive and at
least when everything was
ready she bade him adieu and
told him to kiss the baby
