TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, THUKSDAY EVENING. NOVEMBER 6, 1902.
9 .Story of Modern Witchcraft From the Record-Herald. I Halsey Tomkins who is now a "slate writer" at Worth race track, and as practical and sane a man as any wise snorting man could ask. sitting in the Palmer house buffet the other night told this story: "Never mind about me. I pot away bad at the Overland meeting, and came down to Manitou to drink up the sul phur spring and keep my hand in with roulette at Old Town. It was running vide open then, a sort of compromise between the Colorado Springs paradise, the Manitou society heaven, and the Garden of the ;ods. which, by the way, looks more like a page from Dante's' In ferno' than a park, garden or home of the deities. "I got a room In a widow's cottage up In the foothills above Ruxton's canyon, and from there I made long walks intoj the mountains and over the Cheyenne canyon, where Helen Hunt is buried and where the Seven Falls drop a thousand feet in relays and never look cheap till they get down to rock bottom and flow way in the shape of a kind of Skokie Creek. "On one of my lonesome ramble.? among the peaks I ran across one of those half canvas, half wooden shack? that are so plentiful in all mountain re orts. I was burnt up for a drink, so I went in and Nagged the proprietor for a tnolstener. He gave me water, and asked me to sit down. We got pretty Well acquainted, and when he heard that I was a gambler he admitted that I was the very kind of a man he was looking for. He asked me if I had ever been interested in aerostatics, and when I said that I had been and was, though I didn't know what it meant, he told me that he had invented a living ma chine, and that all he wanted to set him on his feet was a man like me. who was willing to take a chance and who would finance a first public apoearance' be fore a large, paying crowd. "I admitted that I thought the scheme might be worked provided his tiying raa. Chine worked, and then he showed it to me. It was nothing but wings, so far as I could see. great, spreading wings of white, shining metal, which he ex plained was aluminum. I admitted that I didn't know anything about balloons, flying machines or anything of that kind, and he went into the history of the whole business. He told me that human ignorance, prejudice and stingi ness had thus far been the chief obsta cle to successful navigation of the air, nnd that at an earlier day religious superstition had defeated and destroyed Fome of the most remarkable efforts to fly. He told about some archbishop who, having witnessed the successful flight of an aeronaut from one moun tain peak to another, had immediately caused the scientist to be burned at the stake for witchcraft. "We got down to brass tacks after a while, and I said that if he would give me a private exhibition of his flying ability I'd take him to Denver and pull off a show in which we might both make some money. I stayed all night at his shack, and he explained the work ings of his invention. It was, as I told you. mostly wings, but there was a piece of harness which reached from the butt of the wings to his feet, by means of which he claimed to be able to launch himself from the earth. In other words, once hitched up to his contrivance he could by a few vigorous strokes with both legs set up such a vigorous flap ping of his wings that he rose at once. After that it was mostly a question of slow, steady leg strokes, the manipula tion of the wings with his hands, soar ing, poising and finally sinking by fold ing his pinions. "Beyond Cameron's Cone, a thousand fret or more below the cliff that faces south, thore is a wide, smooth table land of perhaps a thousand acres. I was to go there in the morning, while he, winged and ready, was to launch himself from the cliff, mount, stoop, soar. descend, alight, and in every way demonstrate his ability to fly. When I got to my place about norm I rnuld descry him only by the reflection which the sun cast fro-n his bright wings. Hp looked like an ant aloft, and I sat down In the shade of a small oak and waited. Presently I saw his wings spread. He seemed to leap from the precipitous edge of the cliff against the wind. I felt sick and dizzy as I wait ed for his fall. Tint instead of falling he floated out across the chasm like a bird Then the wind, which was against him. drove him hack and upward like a kite. The wings were motionless, but he circled and rose, as yon have seen buzzards circle nnd mount with wings that seem rigid. Then he swung out across the abyss and away, quartering toward the east as fast as eagle ever ilew; then poised again, and came swooping like a hawk toward the table where I lay, fascinated, watch ing him. I thought he would be dashed to pieces against the ground, hut when he was perhaps 4i-0 feet above me.descend Ing like a dead missile, I saw the strokes of his legs. The great, gleaming wings smote the air rapidly, and he stood still In midair, leaning, as it were, against the breeze, and then. In swiftly narrowing cir cles, circled downward gently toward the earth. He alighted not more than a hun dred yards from me. drew In his wings nnd called out, 'Come and set me down!' "I unhitched him and gave him a drink from my flask. He was winded, hut still strong, and he saw that I was delighted with the demonstration. I don't remember what I said, but it was all praise. We carted the machine back up the mountain, and I started for Denver the next day. i engaged Klltch's Garden for every Sunday for a month and broke into the papers for all kinds of space about Professor Woodly and his tiying machine. The prob lem of aerial navigation was solved, nnd he was interviewed for whole pages. The sale of tickets was enormous. The one thing essential to a successful flight, said Woodly. was a perch high enough. I borrowed all the money I could cet thev wouldn't advance me the box office re ceipts ana when baturday came I had erected a sort of scaffold nearly 100 feet high. "There must have been 2'000 people on the grounds at 3 o'clock Sunday, when Woodly mounted the ladder with his ma chine. It was an impressive moment. Ut ter silence reigned while he was getting into nis narness. At last he stood upon METAMORPHOSIS OF REGGIE He was a very intelligent youth, And the trouble with him was that he -wouldn't play any games at all. the verge. He hesitated, then spread his great, glittering wings. Then he sat down. The crowd cheered, waited, cheered again, and was silent. Then Woodly stood up, and I saw that he was trying to make a speech. He might as well have whistled. Not a word of his could be heard. The crowd began to Jeer. I was at the foot of the ladder and scampered up as fast i3 I could. When I got to the little platform at the top he turned a deathly face upon me and said: "Tomkins, my suspenders are busted. I can't fly!" I cold him he had to fly, that the crowd was getting ugly, that we'd be mobbed. 'Go ahead!' I howled; 'try it!' He looked at me des pairingly, turned toward that sea of faces, spread his wings again and jumped. "He went down whirling straight to the ground, vainly flapping, kicking and slam ming the air with his right wing. The oth er wouldn't work. The mob Jumped him as soon as he struck the ground. Beer bottles, glasses, sticks, stones and lawn benches were hurled upon him. The po lice came to his rescue, and we pacified the crowd after I promised to refund the entrance money. I got a doctor to tend him, and when he came to he sai(f: "Tomkins, I am ruined. My pants got tangled in my hame chains.' "He never flew again. He never can. But he's got no kick coming. His leg was broken in the fracas." CAPTURED BY CONVICTS. By M. Quad. We had discharged our cargo at Georgetown from the brig Albatross and were ready to start on our return voy age to Liverpool when the captain was notified that ten French convicts from the penal settlement of Cayenne had escaped to sea in a yawl. Three days later and 120 miles to the south our lookout sighted the craft and her convict crew. In a cuarter of an hour the yawl lay off our port bavv within speaking distance. Only desper ate men could have attacked and over powered the guard and escaped as they did. There was neither a young nor an old face among them, but all were middle-asred men. Some were in full uniform, while others had thrown awav their jackets. Their leader was a short, stout man of such dark complexion that he seemed to be a Spaniard. As the boat drew near he stood up in the stern sheets and called out: "Hello, captain! Our ship went down off here (pointing to the east) yesterday afternoon." "I know you!" shouted Captain Roth say in reply. "You are escaped convicts from Cayenne. If you attempt to board us, you will find us well prepared." "Yes, captain, you speak truly," said the leader after a brief consultation with his men. "We are convicts from Cayenne, but we are innocent men. We do not wish to board you. We have neither food nor drink, and we ask you, in the name of humanity, to supply us." The captain consulted with me in re gard to it. They must come alongside In order to receive supplies, and when they had once hooked on who could say what they might attempt? Besides we had little or nothing to spare. They had been afloat five or si-,a days, and none of their faces exhibited evidence of suffering. "I have nothing to spare, and I warn you to keep off!" shouted the captain in answer to the request. We had seen no arms among them and had supposed them to be without weapons of any sort. To our great sur prise, five muskets, taken from the guard when they escaped, were sud denly lifted into view, while four oars dropped into the water, and the yawl made for our bows. There was a fierce yel! from every convict, and those with muskets opened fire. Captain Rothsay was killed arid the second mate wound ed even before they had hooked on. We scaided them with boiling water and fought them with whatever we could lay hold of, but within five minutes the brig was captured. We had a foremost hard killed in the fisht on deck, and none of us escaped injury. As an offset we killed two of the convicts while they were trying to board. As chief officer I was "asked about our cargo and destination, and on the other hand the leader informed me that they were sorry to interrupt our voy age, but intended to use the briz to make good their escape. The first thing was to get rid of the dead bodies They allowed us to sew them in canvas before they went over board, and then our wounded men were made comfortable. After the burial the leader said to us: "We mean you no harm. We are des perate men and intend to make our es cape. After we have been landed in some safe place you may sail away with your brig. If you try to deceive us, we will show you no mercy." I was further informed that I must act as captain and navigate the brig, and I was allowed to choose a mate from among my men. After that a council was held among the eight of us as to what place should be steered for. I brought them the charts from the cabin, and after a long debate it was decided to run for the Amazon river. From the very first I had hoped that we might retake the brig, but the con victs would only trust us so far. The watches were so divided by order of Moran that our men were separated, and two of the convicts were kept un der arms to act as sentries. Moran and the second mate had Quarters aft with me, while all the others berthed for ward. All of us were under constant surveillance, though decently treated, and no two of us were ever left alone together. While none of them could take the wheel, they kept constant watch on the compass. They knew the course was south by west, and if the brig broke off a point they were quick to de tect it. The winds were light and variable, and it was a week after our capture before we drew In with the coast. Moran s or ders were to avoid Para by entering the north mouth, and when we were fairly in the river he told me their plans. I was to take them in the brig up as far as the mouth of the Xingu river, and ihey then would pull up the stream in the yawl and make for the diamond district. We were not above 30 miles up the river when we were obliged to come to anchor for want of a breeze About the time we anch ored the demeanor of the convicts seemed i to change for the worse. It appeared as And gradually and surely he chang- ed from a human being of flesh and blood into a mere conglomeration of if three or four of them were anxious to pica a quarrel with our men. That even-' ing the second mate found opportunity to say to me: "Depend upon it, Mr. Lenox, they never meant to stand by their bargain. I should not be surprised if they were planning to cut our throats and scuttle the brig." I strongly suspected them of some evil intention, but nothing came of it that night. Next morning we had wind and tide in our favor, and at noon, when we anchored again, we had made 25 miles Right away after dinner the yawl was lowerea ana Moian began to outfit her. Whatever they thought could be made useful was placed in. the boat, and they were rummaging about the whole after noon. At about 6 o'cIoeW fcrn nrr1,.T-e,i all of the old crew of the brig into the caoin. ll.very man of us at once realized that the climax was at hand, and. acting In concert, we made a sudden and furious attack. We got possession of two of t;ie muskets and were making a good fight of it. though bound to be beaten in the end. when a Brazilian gunboat, which was on her way up the river, sheered along side of us and had grappled on before fcome of us saw her. Her presence put an end to the tight, of course. We had two men wour.deti, while we had tilled one com let and woended a second. Our captors were neatly trapped, but they no sooner realized it than they claim ed to be th? leal crew of the vessel and denounced us as convicts. They were so tamest and emphatic in their declarations that the commander of the gunboat was almost convinced. I destroyed their case, however, when I asked them for the cap tain's name, our port of hail the names of the different ropes and sails, etc. They were ironed and taken aboard the gun boat to be conveyed to Cayenne, while the brig was towed down to Para to be put through the legal forms necessary in such cases. The last time I saw Moran he said to me: "Do you think we would have been such fools as to let you sail away with tne brig? I meant to lock all of you in the cabin and then cut away 'the masts and scuttle her." (Copyright, 1902, by H. L. Harold.) HUMOR OF THE DAY.
