FLYING ABOVE THE SEA.
A TRIP THROUGH THE CLOUDS
FROM DENMARK TO SWEDEN.
Taking a Plane Into the Chilly Water
of the Baltic A Midnight Flight from
Copenhagen The Trumpet That Startled
the Nor Ires.
In 1871, nay Rufus Gibson Wells, the
veteran 1 Tilladi-lphia aeronaut, I made sev
eral noteworthy aerial voyain from Copen
hagen, tie beautiful and very interesting
capital ot Denmark. The directors of the
famous T vol! garden, one of the largest and
finest In trie world, had .read the description
of the gigantic aerial machine, 175 feet
in length, which 1 built for the French
government in 1870, and requested me to
construct a new one of the mine shane. but
of much I ass dimensions, with which to make
my ascension from their spacious eartfon
Many hundred yards of fine linen were ob
tained Instead of silk, and a cigar shaped
aerostat ..f 100 feet in length and 50 In
diameter was soon manufactured In one of
the immense dancing halls at the Tivoli.
TH 5UOHT GABRIEL BAD COME.
An imn ease multitude came to witness the
first ascent. An American traveler and a
Danish photographer. Mr. Schroder, con
eluded to accompany me on the trip across
me cnannm, or sound, thirty miles wide, to
oweuen. i ne wind was favorable for such
an u.mui mm. na we intended to make a
trip of several hundred miles over Sweden
sod Norway if the wind permitted, we were
provided with plenty to eat, with scientific
instrumet U for observations In the higher
regions, life preservers, etc. I had con
structed a fine life dress of rubber, similar to
the one usl by Capt. Boyton in his wild ad
ventures in many lands.
The hand played the "Star Spamrled Ban
ner" as I flung our national flag to the breeze
and gave orders to lot go the ropes. We
soared aloft majestically, amid the shouts of
the multitude. It was a glorious day. The
grand oM city, with its ancient walls and
houses, ana its picturesque palaces and ro
mantic gardens, its thousands of vessels in it
spacious liarlior, decorated with flaes of all
nations, tl e distant shores of Sweden, and the
placid tiai tic tieneath us, all presented a pic
ture of ve ned interest and beauty. As we
passed over the ships and steamers we could
distinctly hear the cheers and shouts of the
sailors. We soon reached the altitude of one
mile, and '-n Joyed a charming view of the two
kingdoms as we gradually approached the
shore of Sweden, about two miles west of
As nigh i came on we found our course was
toward tl e northeast, and we hoped to be
able to mi ke a long journey over Sweden be
fore morn ing, as we bad plenty of gas and
ballast. Mr. Schroder had a long trumpet
with which he would now and then give a ter
rific blast or talk with the people when we
came near the earth, to learn over what part
of Swede i we were traveling. We had an
excellent map of the kingdom, which we could
examine cn our way without any danger of
an explosion, as the mouth of the balloon wat
well tied while the lamp was in use. Our Da
nish friend could speak the Swedish language,
and when we informed the farmers that we
bad left C ipenhogen only a few hours before
dark thej could hardly believe It When
they board the horn or trumpet above them
they could not imagine what it meant We
learned af cerward that some of them thought
that Gabriel was surely coming at last
In order to move more rapidly we ascended
sometimes above the clouds. There we met
a current that bore ns eastward. After sail
ing nearly a hundred miles over Sweden we
found thai, we wore rapidly approaching the
Baltic in the direction of St Petersburg. If I
had been t lone I would have crossed the Baltic
to Russia or Finland. I did not feel justified,
however, in running the risk of being lost in
the sea with my companions, although w
hail consi lerable ballast and plenty to eat
and drink. We might have passed safely
over to Russia iu a few hours, or if we were
forced to descend we no doubt would have
been rescued by some vessel, as there are
many of tl .em constantly traversing the Baltic
during the summer.
As the c jast was covered with trees, I con
cluded to descend into the sea, so as not tc
wrack my balloon. I put on my life drest
and took riy stand on the concentrating hoop
and pulled the valve cord. There being some
wind we were carried nearly half a mile from
the shore before we struct the water. Mj
Yankee friend stood up in the car, but the
Dane, who weighed over two hundred pounds,
kept his at, and, being on the side that
struck the sea first, he was completely bap
tized, and tame up blowing like a whale as
the balloon recovered from the shock. The
large anchor soon caught in the shallow bay
and kept ts from drifting out to sea. Having
the Boyton life di-rtss on, I did not get wet,
but my friends suffered a little from the cold
uw it was lata is IU ti Tb.
Dane tilt-w his trumpet and soon we saw a
light, and me fishermen came and carried
us ashore st a small fisherman's village, about
one hundred miles from Copenhagen.
w e obtained means to return and transoort
the ballooL back to Coieiihagen. Long c
scriptionsnf our journey were published in
Denmark, Sweden and Norway, and I wat
requested to visit Stockholm and Christiana,
the capitals. I prepared to make another
ascension from the Tivoli and again to cross
the channel to Sweden, the public having be
come greatly excited over it As the royal
family had taken great interest in the enter
prise and smie of them expressed a desire to
make capt: ve ascents with me, the managers
concluded to arranges powerful windlaasand
cable to use on the next occasion previous
to the free ascent
Several of the officers took much pleasure
in the captive ascents, and said they would
like to croM the Baltic with me if I would
agree to return them the next da v. I said
that it was my desire to reach the most nor
thern part of Norway or pass over Sweden to
rinland su mid the wind be favorable, and
therefore I would not make any promisee
when I should return. The American was so
enchanted with his romantic ride above the
clouds, and our fine reception by the fair fish
ing maids on the shore of the Baltic, that he
asked permission to cross the channel with
me again. We made a delightful trip, and as
the wind c ied away we concluded to land
near a coll. -go a few miles from Malmo, where
we were invited by an engineer who could
speak English to remain with his family until
we desired to return next day to Denmark by
tbesteamui from Malmo. Philadelphia Press.
