DOES NOT LOSE BIS BALLOON Fishing Schooner I'icks Uim Up Twelve Miles OfT Shore and Land lliru Sale at Boston. Trovidence. II. I.. July 7. The fail ure of James K. Allen, one of the best known professional aeronauts in the i ! east, to return from a balloon aseeii j 6ioa which he made from here on last Wednesday caused fears that the j balloon was blown to sea. Allen as j cended July 4. alighted near Attleboro and ascended again, the balloon then Went Over Minot's Lighthouse. Inquiries on the south tdiore of Mas sachusetts bay developed the fact that Allen passed over Scituate about 5 p. m. on July 4. His balloon was going northeasterly and over Massachusetts bay, and was lost to view over Minot's lighthouse. It turned out that he had a narrow escape. He was picked up at sea by a Boston fishing schooner yesterday, and landed safely at Eos tod. Lucky Shift of the Wind. That Allen is alive is due wholly to a fortunate shift of the wind. When he made his ascension at Providence on Wednesday the wind was blowing a brisk breeze from the southwest. The aeronaut was carried in his balloon in a northeasterly direction and passed over the town of Attletoro. He had his balloon under perfect control at that time, and while in the vicinity of Attleboro he descended twice. From Attleboro the airship traveled in the direction of Brockton, and the last seen of the aeronaut by observers on shore was v,-hen he passed over Scituate ear ly in the evening. At that time the balloon was headed straight out to sea. Thought He Was Gone for Good. When Thursday dawned without any news being received from Allen and it became known that the last time he was seen was when he was on the ocean shore headed out to sea it was then believed that he would never re turn. After Allen passed over Massa chusetts bay his plight was more peril oust. Wednesday night he was over I'rovincetown. At this point of the voy age the wind shifted from southwest to nortlieast, and from Provincetown the balloon sailed down the outer Cape Cod coast. At 7:30 the aeronaut was rescued twelve miles off Chatham by the fishermen of the schooner Francis V. Sylvia. Even Saved His Balloon. The balloon was saved in good con dition and was brought to Boston on the schooner. During his flight Al len covered a total distance of about miles, nearly naif or wnicn was over the water. The point where he was picked up is about seventy-seven miles from Provincetown in a direct line.
