During another digression from his

ortl from Quincy IlL by A Holland
ForbcH holder of the Lahm cup and
James Carringlon Yatos the astrono
mer both of Now York which began
at Quincy 111 Monday evening tor I
mlnating late Tuesday In a disastrous I
tumble to the earth from a holghl of
perhaps 300 feet near Center Ky I
wns not without its compensation
was indicated by statement made i
by Forbes last night Tho balloon I
broke the ascent record It is de
clared and w > me valuable photo
graphs of the comet were secured at
an elevation of 18000 cot
Forbes last night describing their
experience after reaching the altitude
of 20600 feet said
I
In descending from the great ele
vation we had very little sand left
and as the gas contracted the bal
loon bag camo extremely flabby I I
Everything however went well until
we were a few hundred feet above
the ground when the appendix IIno
broke loose from tho ring support I
Jog the basket There was BO little
gas In the balloon at the time that
tho rigging collapsed and with the
basket attached naturally dropped
This caused the ripcord which Is at
ached to the ring to rip open the
balloon at the height of too feet
from the ground
I cannot describe tho sensation of
that 300 feet to the ground It came
so suddenly that I have a faint re
collection of seeing men below mo In
a plowed field and of subconscious
ly trying it seemed to tilt up
the basket that Mr Yates and I
might spring free from the riggin
when clono to the ground Because
tho basket did not tilt as it would
have done under ordinary circum
stances wan the cause of oar Injury
I believe the only thing that pre
vented the broaklng of our backs
when the basket fell bottom squaro
ly down under the weight of tho bag
was the rubber air mattress which
we had placed in the bottom so that
we might bo comfortable when AVO
j wanted to lie down
I
I For a moment I wns stunned by
the Impact Then I recovered arid
saw two or three mon coming to our
aid They extricated us and In im
provised Utters we wore carried to I
this house
i In starting from Qulucy we were
unable to carry moro than 33 forty
pound bags of Band which together
with the tremendous height to which
wo ascended shortened thtrip Wo
should never have started the flight
with less than fifty bags of ballast
On this trip I did not mind the
low temperature so much both of
UB were prepared for It We suffered
for want of oxygen though when wo
went higher than 1SOOO feet The I
air pressure at that altitude Is not
more than throe or four pounds and
It seems one cannot get enough air
We panted like dogs and my car
drums and eyes pained me greatly
Yates suffered In the same manner
Some aeronauts take tanks of oxygen
with their supplies but we Qm not
think we would need IU Ono can be
come accustomed to the rapid changes
in air pressure however
Both Forbes and Ynles wore rest
Ing comfortably this morning and ex
pressed the opinion that by the end
of the week they would he able to
undertake the Journey to their homes
in New York

IN A DREAM I I

Bridgeport Conn May 12lrs A
Holland Forbes wife of tho aeronaut
whose balloon was wrecked Tuesday
night in Kentucky told her friends I
here today a remarkable story of a
premonition of the disaster which be
fell her husband I
ll all came to mo In a drcuin on I
the nlcht of the disaster says Mrs
Forbes In my dream I could see ray
husband and Mr Yates apparently In
great distress They called for assist
ance but I was powerless to help
They seemed to rlso through the
clOud then treappear close to the
earth Finallyi seemed to see them
fall suddenly and I awoke When I

worse than any other man would have
been under the circumstances1
Following hula fast and shifty work

route to their homo in NnslrvfVle after
vIsiting friends In St IxmK
Glen Park the scone of the accident
is a river landing almost inaccessible
to the telf raph lines and the news
to St LouIs In
of the disaster came I
a roundabout way from Kimmswlotk
and Sulphur Springs
Shortly before reaching Glen Park
I the Snltlllo encountered a shoreward I
draw which wns fought frantically
by the pilots The ensinosf were re
versed but the efforts to prevent the
collision wer unavailing As the big i
boat swung from the current in shore I
despite the reversed engines and the
rudder thrown haul ovor she wag
I driven with Increasing speed toward
I land and turned completely around II
With the noise of rending timbers
I and the shrieks of women and chil I
dren passengers the cries of the crew I
and the bellowing of the cattle the
I vessel struck a hidden rpck nnd sank
almost in reach of land at a point
where the water was 20 feet deep
Passengers and members of the
crow clung to the timbers while
those more fortunate loot their aid
immediately to the rescue of the help
less The majority of the pnsaengcra
were In their cabins Time csilllbion
came so suddenly they wore plunged
Into the water before they knew what
hud happened
I Captain Crane of St Jouls after his
1 escape from the river made his way
a distance of two miles In the near
est telephone station and telephoned I
the news to St Louis and De Soto
Rescue trains with physicians and 10
lief supplies were sent to the scene
this morn In
s fast as the occupants of thin
short they
Btonmor wore dragged to
were taken to the Gloncoo Comp lDY5
boarding house where they were sh < > l
tored and warmed Many of the faint
Ing women and men of tho party had
to be revived with stimulants
At the rivers brink till work of at
tempted rescue was most dishearten
ing Sometimes an alert rescuer
t
perched on the shore and scanning the i
dark waters would spring Into the 1
waves for a supposed struggler only
to find his goal was tho floating end
of a water logged tree
