Professor Elliott, in speaking of hi, adven

Aug. 6, ISM, the twenty-ninth anniversary of
my birth. I took with me as companion a
little son of Mr. Redman, proprietor of a sa
loon on Pratt street. After being in the air
for about a half hour we were overtaken by
a terrible storm, and came near losing our
lives. I was afterwurd told by the spectators
that it was an awful sight to see the balloon
tossed hither and thither among tbe black
clouds, with tbe lightning playing about it as
though it offered some terrible fascination
for that destructive Buid. The mot het of the
boy who was with me fainted at the sight,
and was thought to be dead. The storm quiet

came disarranged, and we were precipitated
Into tbe water. The steamer Maryland was
coming up tbe river with an excursion party
from Annapolis. Those on board sighted us
while we were wtill in midair, and when they
saw us foiling a panic provaiied on board.
The steamer was so near us that I could see
the commotion on hor, and to quiet it told the
boy, who maintained wonderful presence of
mind, to wave his hat, which be did, amid
great cheering. We were taken on board the
steamer and congratulated. One old lady,
putting her arms around my neck, said: 'The

My first ascension from Charleston was
made from Meeting street. I was carried
award over John and Jamas islurds, and
lanaea on admelo island. Dr. Angel, an
immensely weajtny planter, resided on Wad
melo Island amid almost oriental luxuries.
He wu highly pleased with my unexpected
visit After spelling the night at hi, house,
I was taken bad; to Charleston by hi, race

My second ascension wot uneventful On
my third, J reached the height of three and a
half or four miles, and was In the air about
on er three-quarter, of an hour, having
been unable to descend earlier on account of
some difficulty in opening the valve of the
oauoon. v ben 1 descended it was perfectly
dark, and 1 alighted In the bay about ten or
twelve muss outside the bar, where I re
mained for several hour, supported by the
balloon, whan a skiff from pilot boat Cora,
Capt. Aldert, came to my relief. I was
transferred from the Cora, in the vicinity of
Sullivan's Island, to the steamboat Etiwan,
Capt Bastard, which boat bad been dispatched
to my assistance at a late hour of the night
"After the events 1 continued my tour to
New Orleans, where I made ascensions from
a part of town called Lafayette. My first
trip occupied three hours, and I landed on the
battleground where Gen. Jackson, with his
Kentucky and Mississippi riflemen, defeated
Gen. Pakecham, with hi, Fnn regulars.
A DAXGEROCa RIDE.
"My second ascension, which was the most
unfortunate I have ever had, was mads from
the state house yard. The ascension, accord
ing to advertisement, was to be made at 4 p.
m. i but at midday the wind began to blow
from the east, and as it appeared to be on the
Increase, I determined to start as soon as pos
sible. Dr. Btillwell, a wealthy merchant,
had engaged passage; but, the weather look
ing so bad, I refused to take him, much to
that gentleman's disgust Making all ready, I
Jumped into the car , and, watching my chance,
when tbe ballon reached its perpendicular,
gave the word to let go. A slight delay oc
curred before executing the order, and a
heavy flaw of wind struck the balloon Just as
she bounded from the earth. Before 1 had
time to think the car of the balloon collided
with the tall chimney on 'the state house,
knocking about ten feet of it down and bruis
ing me considerably. Fifteen brick, fell in
the car, the weight of which was not suffi
cient to bring the balloon to the ground, yet
was too great to permit it to rise higher in
the air. Consequently, under the influence
of the wind, which was on the increase, the
balloon went careening just a few feet above
"With frantic energy I began throwing
bricks, sand bags and everything I could out
at the car. While thus engaged 1 kept a
harp lookout Presently 1 saw that a col
lision with the dormer window of the Runs
of Louisiana was unavoidable, and prepared
myself for it by crouching down in the car.
The balloon escaped it, but the car, from the
momentum it had gained, was thrown clear
through the window, m .hitc the sash, and
then as violently Jerked out again. The
hock of the collision broke my thigh, and
rendered me senseless. The balloon continued
its flight until caught in the rigging of a

I happened to become a specialist in this line
ol detective work, but I suppose it was bo
cause I was suocesul in the first case I at
tempted. Let me sec; that was back in the
sixties. I was sirt ng in my office one day,
chewing the cud of iwitecunious idleness
for I wut:nt very vll known then when a
woman, dressed it widow's weeds, entered.
She stated that bt r husband had recently
died, as she and eve ry one else supposed, pos
sessed of consider itle property in bonds.
Despite a systematic search, nothing of thee
bonds could be discovered. Her lawyer, with
whom I chanced t) bo acquainted and for
whom I had once done a good turn, had
recommended hor to ma Sho lived on Long
Island, and I accompanied her home. As
she had informed me, I learned on arrival
that an extended search bad been made, but
wan no satisfactory rosult I learned, fur
ther, that tho man :iad uot been miserly, and
from that I argued that be bad not used any
of the complicated methods of concealment
common to gentlemen of a pouuriou turn of
mind. I found the this business had token
him frequently awt y from home, and that
he had formerly been a seafaring man.
A thorough search had been made of all his
familiar haunts. I asked about his clothes.
"Lord a massy !" exclaimed his widow.
Joan wore the meanest duds yon ever see.
We couldn't get him to keopdacent things on
"May I see what lie hadf" I asked.
I was then inform xl that after the clothing
had bom thoroughly searched, and ripped
and prodded with knitting noodles, it bad
been given away to a poor man in the vil
I wn, det?rminT. to have those clothes,
for I argued in this way: Tbe man was not
miserly, and therefore had not used any ex
traordinary method of concealmnnt; he had
been in the habit of making short trips from
home, and from that 1 judged he must have
carried his money w tb him. This judgment
was further eonrmd by the fact that not
ing had been discovered in any of the rooms
wnicn ne naa occupt l, and that be had been
a sailor. Now, sailors, you know, almost
m ways carry thou? ray about their Derms.
This fart, coupled with the others, made me
feel more than ever that the money was
somewhere in those clothes. Finally they
were orougnt in, ana a pretty soedy looking
soi oi rags mcy were, with one exception.
Around the edge ol the coat wa, a broad
binding, neatly sewec: on. and in much better
condition than the rest of the cloth.
