A horse and buggy tried to go up
in the balloon Wednesday afternoon
after Professor Kohl failed in his
first attempt. It happened in this
way: The professor started on a
flight early in the afternoon without
sufficient gas. The balloon came
down back of the pavilion where a
horse was hitched to the fence. In
some way the ropes became attached
to the buggy. As Kohl's weight was
thrown on the ground the balloon
shot upward taking the buggy sever
al feet off the ground. The horse
braced himself and saved the day.

livestock yesterday afternoon.
