Herr Colesmcin, general manager of
the aiiship company; Chief Engineer
Duerr. of the Zepjx'lin Company, and
Captain Kannenberg, who personally
had charge of the crew of ten, and
twenty newspaper men, sailed from
D?sseldorf at 8:30 o'clock th s morn?
ing for a three hours' excursion. The
objective point was Dortmund, about
35 miles from D?sseldorf, but a hign
head wind prevailed and an effort was
made to reach Mi:nster, a garrison
town, so that a landing might be made
on parade grounds.
It was dangerous to attempt a land?
ing In an open field, be?
cause of the storm, as the metal was
likely to pound to pieces.
Motor Refuses Work.
In the high wind, one of the motors
refused to work, and the other two
were not powerful enough to make any
progress in the gale. The airship
drifted, swaying in the violent gtis.s
and sometimes leaning to an angjp
of forty degrees, and all the while the
englnemen were ,it work repairing the
disabled motor. When this was done,
all four screws were driven at their
full power, which, under normal con?
ditions, the ship was capable of at
ta ning a speed of forty miles an hour.
But the helmsman wes in ible to keep
his course, and the great craft was

Coieeman did not dare to turn the
ship Around for fesT of ovei turning,
and he decided to drift in the gale
which wag now going at the rate or
fifty miles an hour toward Narbroiirk,
which is also a garrison station. Ii
he missed *hat, he would continue on
to Scnne.
Whirlwind Comes.
Suddenly he perceived a whirlwind
coming and ascended to a height ot
nea:!y f< ur thousand feet, to avoid
the worst of it. \V:th the whirlwind
came an svalnche of rain After

treacherous spots, where the depth ot
