AIRSHIP MAKES A
AT PORTLAND FAIR
Areonant Beachey Makes Most Re
markable Flight in Mid-Air above
the City and Returns in Forty-Five
Minutes to Exact Starting Place.
PORTLAND', Sept. 1 "..—Lincoln
Beachey, navigating Oapt. Baldwin's
airship, "City of Portalnd," .diicli
was floated by the gas bag of George
Tomilson's "Gelatine," tod*y made
what was probably the most wonder
ful exhibition of aerial navigation
At precisely 11 o'clock, the lionr
promised, Beachey left tne Lewis and
Clark fair grounds, traveling eastward i
over Thunuan street to a point over
Twenty-third street north, then south
parallel to Twenty-third street to a ■
point over Washington street to Sixth.
Beachey then described a circle a
round the Oregonian tower. Turning
his machine homeward, Beachey, in
the face of a wind that varied from
three to six miles an hour, nt 11:25
•tatted directly northwest toward tlie I
fair grounds, where he airired at
11 42 o'clock and landed within three i
feet of the starting point. During the
course of his flight the aeronaut vari- !
ed from a maximum 1000 leet to 850
feet, to which altitude lie deseeuded
when" nearest the Oregonian building.
As he passed The Oregonian tne
crowd on the loot of that structure
shouted words ot congratulation, and
the answer of Beachey, "Hello, peo
ple!" was distinctly heard.
Tbe presence of the airship compell
ed a complete suspension of business
for nearly haif an hour even the stieet
cars coming to a Standstill owing to
the fact that thousands ot people on
tlie streets had their taces turneu heav
enward and refused to move from
their points cf vantage in the mid
dle of the street.
Business men, clerks and laboring
men alike, bareheaded] and in their
shirt sleeves rushed from their places
of employment and stcod wonderstrick-
en at the performances of the aeronaut
and tne airship named for the Rose
Wenatciiee Market Report.

Don't Borrow Trouble
It is a bad habit to borrow anything,
bnt tlie worst thing yea can possibly
borrow is trouble When sick, sore,
heavy, weary and worn out by pains
and poisons of dyspepsia, billiousness,
Fright's disease, and similiar disorders
Internal, don't sit down and brood
over your symptoms, but fly for relief
to Electric Bitters. Heie yon will find
save and permanent forgetfulness of all
your troubles, and your body will not
