A DAllINCr AERONAUT.
BALLOONS RIGHTLY USED AID SCI
ENCE AND KNOWLEDGE.
An Experienced Frenchman Who Has Done
Much With Ills Airship to Make the
Air Navigable Passengers Guaranteed
Against rersonal Injuries.
Probably aeronauts, like poets, are born,
not made. As no man who has not been
quickened by the divine afflatus can ever
become a poet, though he may becoms a
poetaster, so no man who has not been born
with a cenins for aerial navigation can ever
become an aeronaut, though ho may be
come an everyday balloonist. Any fool
hardy fellow can go up in a balloon, but
only a trained aeronaut knows how to de
rive profit from such ascents into the
clouds. The balloonist Rains the applause
of a gaping multitude, the trained aeronaut
gains only the sympathy and the good
wishes of those who, like himself, are
spending their lives In an attempt to unveil
the secrets of science.
If ever there was a born aeronaut. Cap
tain Emile Carton is one. All his life he
has studied balloons, and if he were by
chance to be bereft of the curious balloon
which is his constant companion, life for
him indeed would not be worth living. A
child of Paris, he played with balloons in
his boyhood, and all his years since then
have been devoted to tho study of aerial
navigation. His labors, he claims, have not
been in vain.
That he is no dilettante can easily be
shown. Ho made his first ascent in Paris
on Aug. 30, 1883, being then only 30 years
old, and since then he has not only made
numerous other ascents, but has also in
duced 120 persons to accompany him. lie
has never met with an accident, and such
Is the construction of his balloon that he
claims an accident is well nigh impossible.
Nay, so confident is he that he is prepared
to guarantee the personal safety of all sci
entists and other persons who may desire
to accompany him on his ascents.
The French Academy of Aerostation rec
ognized Captain Carton's merits in lsss
and unanimously elected him a member of
that body. In t ha same year he took part
in a balloon race at Paris and came in win
ner, there being four other balloons in the
field or rather in the air. In the follow
ing year he took part in four races and won
three of them. For this exploit three gold
medals were awarded to him by the jury,
which was composed of eminent men of
science. The secret of his success lay in the
simple fact that he knew how to guide his
balloon through the opposing currents of
the upper air, and thus reached the goal.
whereas his competitors were not only left
far behind, but were also forced to descend
at points far distant from the goal. In
other words, his thorough knowledge of
meteorological laws enabled him to use the
aerial currents to his own advantage.
In October, 1S6U, he made another ascent
at Paris, during which he had an oppor
tunity to study the formation of rain and
barometric depression, and furthermore
was enabled to make certain observations
resulting in some important meteorological
forecasts of threatened storms. The sum
mer of 1S90 he spent in a study of the winds
at Calais, the result of which was that,
starting out to sea in his balloon in July,
he was enabled, when out of sight of land,
to return to the very spot from wheh he
had started. He could not have accom
plished this feat had not his patient study
of the winds rendered it e.isy tor him to
guide his balloon through the upper air
currents. His next ascent was equally use
ful from a scientific point of view. It was
made during u fog which was so dense that
daylight was almost entirely obscured, and
Captain Carton's object was to ascertain
the exact density. He ascended to a height
of 5,2X) meters, and a little calculation
showed him that the density of the fog was
more than 4.000 meters.
Hisnext experiment was undertaken with
the object of finding out what effect baro
metric depression at a great height would
have on animals. In this ascent, during
which he was accompanied by Dr. Citard,
a well known physician, and several ani
mals, he made many useful observations,
which were subsequently embodied in a re
port and published by the French Academy
of Aerostation. He was also eminently
successful in his next ascent, which was
made in company with an electrician who
desired to determine the presence of electric
fluid or ozone in the atmosphere.
The aeronaut now came forward as a
photographer. The idea struck him that
very novel views of terrestrial objects could
be obtained from his balloon, and ho soon
took photographs of Paris and its suburbs.
This work was done at a height varying
from !?0o to 1,W0 meters, and lie peculiar
feature of these photographs is that they
contain details hich arc not visible to th -naked
eye. For this work Captain Cimou
received a gold medal from tiioc.iniiir.ttee
of the cxpoMi ion 1-' photographic.

hat nn ea-. 1 is to a painti r or a Strail
uariustoa violinist, this halioou is to him.
And no wonder he guards it jealously,
since all his life has boon spent in st udying
and perfecting it. Other balloons are ca
pricious wing bags, ever nt the mercy of
winds and waves and liable to collapse
after tho least injury. II is balloon, lie
claims, is a faithful servant, ever oliedtoiit
to its master's will and comparatively in
destructible. Its construction is certainly
unique. The covering is of very strong
china silk which has been oiled four times
and is entirely impervious to gas. Each
separate piece of silk has liern tested by a
dynamometer and has been found chpable
of maintaining resistance at the rate of
1,000 kilograms to every square meter.
Unlike all other balloons, it is not con
structed of silk joined vertically, but of
small square pieces of silk, the largest of
which is not even a yard in length. In
this way the balloon is rendered practically
indestructible. If an ordinary balloon is
torn by accident, the entire apparatus is
likely to collapse simply because the join
ings are far apart, whereas in this balloon
they arc close together, and a damaged
square of silk can easily le replaced by a
new square. There are 1,320 pieces of silk
in this balloon, making a circumference of
40 yards. Previous to each asoent a sim
ple apparatus is attached to the balloon
with the object of keeping it 30 meters
above water in case the wind should carry
it out to sea. Captain Carton does not
claim to be able to prevent his balloon
from going out to sea, but he does claim
that his knowledge of meteorological laws
enables him to predict the course which
f n balloon will take on any given occa
sion. New York Herald.
Hovr Dennis Flynn Was Elected,
During the iiolitical campaign commer
cial travelers were without question the
best naturcd partisans in the country, and
those traveling in Oklahoma territory, re
gardless of political affiliations, always had
a good word to s:iy for Dennis Flynn, the
candidate for delegate to congress. Owing
to this fact, Ir. O'B., a pioneer commercial
traveler, a native of the Emerald Isle and
an ardent Republican, did not think it
amiss when Mr. C, another Hibernian and
a stanch Democrat, invited him nt Elreno
to "make a little talk to a fellow country
men" in the interest of Mr. Flynn. He
tnererore accepted the invitation, expecting
to address a few Irishmen, but imagine his
surprise when he was ushered into a large
room filled with "blanketed Indians."
Seeing at -nce that he was the victim of n
joke, he vri- .:out hesitation stepped upon a
chair a:... -ike as follows: "Jvoble Red
Men and le athers Four hundred years ago
Biy friend Christopher Columbus discover
ed your ancestors without the franchise or
a blanket, but it remained for your friend.
Dennis Flynn, to discover that you are en
titled to the best blankets in the land. As
a further proof of his friendship, and as an
indication of what he will do for you at
"Washington, if elected, he has authorized
this gentleman (pointing to Mr. C.) to give
yonr cniet fl to treat you to cigars." Mr.
C, realizing that lie was likely to be the
victim of his own joke, tried to escane. but
being prevented he reluctantly placed a
mil in the outstretched hand of the Indian
chief. The result of the joke was "sun
dries" charge of ?10 in Mr. C.'s expense

the ijorfected evaporator, when under full

one cord of wood to produce 100 pounds of

being probably within the real number.
