as thc lightning, more vivid than;
we hnd ever seen, turned night In
to a strange and lurid day. For
we were not watching the light
ning from ufar, as one docs on the
earth, where It is like a light t eon
through a window we were Inside
of It, enveloped In Its Iblindlng
"Through a rift In the clouds we
caught sight of thc earth far be
low, anil saw that we were dash
ing downward with such violence
that it seemed as It thc ground
were rushing up at us. We saw
too that the basket was going to
strike. Just ns tho shock came- We
pulled the valvo-rope, anrthe huge
balloon started on a mad dash
across the fields, dragging us with
terrific speed after It. I crawled
out Into the concentrating ring at
the risk of falling out on thc
ground or of getting my legs
caught under tho basket. Grasping
the rip-cord, I pulled it with nil
my might. It slipped through my
fingers, and tore off a ring I was
wearing, taking tho flesh with It.
Just then my companion, Mr. ITar-
mon, nearly fell out, and pulling
him In wo crouched In tho bottom
ot thc basket,
"The balloon dashed on, crashing
right through ' two barbed-wire
fences, tenrlng down two telegraph
lines, smashing tolephono pole
to splinters, bounding on Into n
natch of woods over a farmhouse,
and landing in ncornlield fully
two miles from where It first
struck tho ground.
"We mado up our minds then
and thero that tho noxt tlmo wo
