Columbus. The blue coat declares
that while patrolling his beat in the
east end of town last night, he heard
a rnstle In tbe atmosphere, and gaz
ing skyward was astounded by the
appearance of a awift moving mass
that seemed to nave an eye like a
ball of tire. It was not more than
nail a mile overhead, we copper as
serts, and was traveling north of
east. It was in the early hours of
morning, and its passage broke the
stilly air of night like tbe distant
whiz of an electric motor car. There
seemed to be a glittering steel
hull, with dim wing-like fans on
either side, and it swayed gently in
its flight. The policeman did not
speak tbe atrange traveler. Ha
was too amazed to give utterance to
sound, and before he fully realised
what nad Happened ne awoke to a
realization of what had happoned, or
had not happened about him.
lbe Chicago papers 01 this morn.
ing contain dispatches from various
cities in lowa stating tnat tbe mys
terious neaveniy visitor was seen at
different places in the eastern part of
the state. Between 9 o clock and
midnight it seems to have followed
the tracks of the main line of the
Burlington, Cedar Bspida ft North
ern railroad from Burlington to
West Liberty. At Cedar Rapid s
tnere appears to be apparently indis
putable evidence of the ahip having
been observed. Reports from train dls
patchera along the Northwestern road
indicate that the celestial traveler
had been visible at intervals along
tbe company's line in northern and
eastern Iowa, and these brought it
Dacx as lar as west 1.1 Deny, wnen
trace of it was lost about midnight.
Still later, or rather at an early hour
this morning, the ship is claimed tj

J he flight of the air ship has baen
a subject of newspaper c omment in
the west for several weeks. First it
was heard of in Nebraska, then at
Sioux City and then further east in
Iowa. At Grinnell a number of peo
ple were badly acar-d. and a man
attting in the railway waiting room
will make oath that he saw it. Then
the next information came last night.
Whether or not the ship will hover
over Kock island again with a view
to catching the same policeman on
the lookout remains to be seen but
the temptation is great.

ethereal visitor to make a landing
here on its next pacsage, and thus take

their troubles ample opportunity to

stirring war reminiscensces; Billy
