Paris. Oct. 14. M. De Bradsky, the

killed by falling from a dirigible bal

from the aerostatic station at Vau-

One Who Saw the Accident.
An eye-witness gave the following
account of the accident: "I was stand
ing on the steps of my building when
I heard a voice calling. I looked up
and saw an airship a hundred yards
in the air. M. M. Marin was leaning
oue of the car and asked through a
megaphone where was a suitable spot
to descend. 1 indicated a place in the
neighborhood, and the airship proceed
ed in the derection I had indicated. A
few instants later I saw the balloon
turn sharply, and at the same moment
I heard a noise like the tearing of
cloth. The piano wires attaching the
front of the car to the b-.illoon had
broken. Other wires followed suit, the
car became detached and it fell to the
ground 1KK1 yards distant. The balloon
itself houuded up in the air and dis
appeared. I hurried to the spot and
found De Bradsky dead and terribly
bruised. M. Morin was lying under
the remainder of the car. He lived but
a few moments."
HIS WIFE SAW HI5I DEPART
On the Voyage from Which So Many Have
Ke turned Dead.
The principle of the De Bradsky
airship had been warmly discussed and
its ascent was awaited with the keen
est interest. A number of aeronauts,
friends of De Bradsky, ami the latter's
wife, were present at the start. His
wife, though anxious that her husband
should demonstrate the success of his
invention. witnessed his departure with
considerable emotion. De Bradsky first
tried the ascensional screw situated be
low the car, and the airship, held by
ropes, rose easily and maintained its
equilibrium. De Bradsky was satis
tied and said he would maneuver over
the drilling ground.
A whistle was blown and released
the ropes. th3 propelling screw behind
was set in the proper direction, when
suddenly a 6outbvest wind sprang up
and the airship swerved to the north
west instead of to the northeast. Cross
ing the main boulevards the aerial
craft executed a number of evolutions.
but continued northward with tlio
wind, eventually disappearing over the
great white basilica of the Church of
the Sacred Heart and the top of the
hill of Mount Matre. The aeronaut's
wife and their friends waited at the
shed from 8 till 10. and grew anxious
at his prolonged absence.
When the balloon was perceived -at
an immense height this increased the
anxiety, as it was known the airship
was never intended to rise to such a
point. It was, however, merely the
inflated envelope which drifted back
across Paris after the accident had
relieved it of the weight of the car. A
few minutes latter a telegram arrived
with the news of the disaster. De
Bradsky was a Hungarian baron. 30
years of age, rich and clever, and had
been in the diplomatic service. He
made his first ascension in 1001. Morin
was his engineer. He leaves a widow
and three children.
