After running the machine up and down

Thurder Bird, son of Bull Bear, Sr., an
old-Ume chief of the original North Platte
Rlv er Cheyennes, known as the "Dog Sol
dier," who has been acting as interpreter
for tne Cheyenne Ind'ans at the Indian
School, departed jesterdaj- for Reno. Ok
commissioned bj- Doctor S. C. Simms of
the Department of Anthropolog-, to re
turn as soon as pos--ll)le with twonlj"
Chejennes" who can Intelllgentlj- depict the
life, arts and ceremonies of the ir tribe.
There will be medicine men. who are fa
miliar with all the ritualistic eongp. and
men who have achieved success H oattle.
The selection will lie made from Indians
who still cling to all the old customs of
the Indian life of former dav-s.. with their
Indian ponies and all the original harness
and trapp'nes), including buck-horn saddles
and deerskin bridles..
It la the desire of Doctor Simms to dem
onstrate with them Indians features of
Indian life never seen before on exposition
grounds. Thunder Bird was chosen to ex

AKItANGIn FOR LO'NG AIIl VOYAGE,
Liberal Arts Dny to Witness Stnrt of
Ballo6n Trip to tVanhlntcton.
Most visitors to the Fair on Liberal Arts
Daj-, next Stturdav. will see the stnrt of
tho balloon trip to the Washington Monu
ment, which will be attempted by George
Tomlinson of Sj racuse, N. Y , In a 16.000
foot hydrogen balloon.
The general public puts all ballooning
under one head, which is erroneous. The
rscensions which aro usually made at
rountj- fairs tre made In hot-air balloons
and aro followed bj- parachute drops. The
danger of an ascension in a hot-nlr bal
loon and of a descent in a parachute can
not be overestimated A hot-air balloon
can remain aloft just so long as the air
which It contains Is hotter than the sur
rounding atmosphere, nnd therefore more
expanded nnd more volatile than the sur
rounding air, nnd consequently the dura
tion of such Hlrhts Is very short.
Parachute drops were long ago prohibit
ed in England and in 1S32 in the State of
New York, and there has been agitation in
other States to make it a punishable of
fene. The fatalities resulting from this
kind of exhibitions probably average close
to fifteen or twenty a jear, .and every per
son who makes a profession of hot-air-balloon
ascensions and parachute drops is al
most certain to meet a -violent death.
