The first real airship that ever
passed over the city of Newberry was j
j seen by several citizens late Wednes'
day afternoon. It was probably 3,000

I - I
: were plainly visible, as well as several
passengers, who were leaning overboard
to get a 'view of the city. Th2
i craft passed so rapidly that only a few
i people saw it.
