QUAD Copyright, 1916, by the McCluro Newspaper Syndicate. I found myself in Bombay in May of the year 1SC2, after a year and a half in other parts of India, and very soon thereafter it was announced in the local palters that "Professor Mazam, the celebrated French aeronaut, would soon make an ascension from the pub lic gardens." Three or four days later I ran across the professor and was sur prised and grutUicd to lind him to be none other than :ui old friend whom I had traveled with in China. Mazam was now ironic into balloon ing just for the fun an.l adventure it might bring him, and when he invited me to accompany him on his first trip I was not five seconds in accepting the invitation. We packed Ihe car with provisions enough to last a week, took rifles, revolvers and ammunition along and made all preparations for a long journey. Without her burden of baggage the balloon could have carried five or six men. As it was, she shot up like a bird when all was ready to let go, and in .a few seconds the city and its har bor were far below us. We at once started on our journey, making a pace of about fifteen miles an hour. When night came we added 500 feet to our altitude as an offset to the dew, and as the weather was fine we both lay down to sleep. I awoke twice dur ing the night, but to find all quiet, and when I fumed out first at sunrise it was to find the Arabian coast almost under our feet, and soon we were sail ing over land. We had no sooner left the water than tGe breeze began to subside, and our pace was reduced to five or six miles per hour. We knew that a countereur rent would, soon be met with and both of us were rooking over the edge of the basket at the morning panorama below when we suddenly espied a na tive village. It was, rather, the camp of some wandering tribe, all the shel ters being of canvas or skin. We saw camels, asses, goats and horses, with many people moving about, and we had only got sight of them when they saw us. Some fell down and others ran away, and we "were laughing at their fright when we heard the report of a gun and the sing of a bullet. "Over with the ballast!" shouted Ma zam, and the next Instant we were so far above them that their horses ap peared to be mere specks. Along in the afternoon, while sailing about' a thousand feet above the earth at a slow rate, we came to an open country which seemed to be destitute of human lif^ and the professor an nounced that we would descend and replenish our stock of water and see •what was to be seen. After the anchor had. trailed along tiie ground for about a hundred yards it qbught in the limbs of a fallen tree, and we soon hauled our craft down and secured her. We were within ten rods of a small water course, and while I was filling our wa ter keg Mazam shot a few birds, and we cooked and ate them on the spot and decided to make a night of it where we Were. I judge it was about midnight-wben Mazam shook me and whispered: "Come here ig a'sight worth seeing. Be careful not to make any unneces sary noise." As I looked over the basket I saw two Immense lions, standing about twenty feet apart and facing each other. The animals approached each other slowly with growls of defiance, each carefully lifting his -paws, but they did not diminish the distance over a rod before both stopped and stood as if cut from stone. Suddenly one of the beasts made a rush so swift that we could not follow him with our eyes, and they grappled a«d rolled over and over on the ground. -Just as we thought that both would be killed In the fray one of them turned tail and ran, being hotly pursued by the victor. The remainder of the night passed without incident, an'd as daylight came a breeze from the north came with it. After a cold bite we lifted our anchor and were off, but we had scarcely be gun to move before we found ourselves above a, long, drawn out caravan, which had just taken up its line of march. Perhaps all knew our craft to be a bal loon perhaps they believed it to be some great bird. At any rate they be gan firing at us, and the very first bul let struck the basket. It was an open country, and such men as were mount ed on horses could keep up with us. "Now, then," snid Mazam as the bul lets coutlnued to sing about us, "over board with that keg of water, all extra clothing, everything to give us a lift out of range." Inside of an hour the balloon began to .approach the earth again, and as we were driving toward Murbat we threw over all the rest of the ballast, even in cluding the spyglass and the box of bread. In a short time we began to de scend again, however, finally landing in a field of maize Just outside of Mur bat. It had been a most delightful and ex citing balloon trip, and, although I was anxious to go" again, it turned out that I was not to make another voyage among „the clouds. Shortly after our ascension I married a Bombay girl who had a"horror of balloons. Poor Mazam! This intrepid adven turer had made six successful ascen sions in India and was getting an inter national reputation as an aeronaut when he met his fate. On hiB seventh trip something went -wrong -with the balloon and he fell with It from a ter rible height. —Good second hand spring wagon for sale. Laustec.
