Company I, iLL NIGHT FLIGHT OF FBEE BALLQDU After spending the night on the farther end of Santa Rosa island, and keeping the aeronautic station in a state of anxiety for fear they had been blown out to sea, a party of free balloonists were rescued yester day morning, by scouting airplanes from the station. The party had prepared for an all night flight, and left the station Wednesday afternoon. Shortly after leaving, a stiff north wind blew in, on the thunderstorm, and craft drifted out over the bay, and into the gulf. Before they could be found, the storm broke, and all trace of them was lost. Apparently the balloon had been carried out into the gulf, as it was feared that because of the altitude at which it was flying a landinsr would be impossible. When nothing was heard from the party Thursday morning, the fears were heightened, and several air planes were dispatched to search for the balloon. One of the machines flew more than a hundred miles along the coast, but found nothing, as the search was being made in the julf. A second machine, flying neared ,the shore, found the craft and party on the beach, but a communication had already been sent to the station, and the party and balloon recovered.

For the first time in the history of the county Wakulla will hold a local option wet and dry; election August 31, and Tal lahassee is more or less interested in the outcome. Wakulla and Liberty are the only two Florida counties having never held elections of this kind, and therefore are wet and are being wet until it is voted dry unless said county is part of territory that had previously voted dry- These two, however, are original Florida coun ties, existing long before the adop tion s the present state constitution There are no saloons in Wakulla county, but the temperance people there back of the movement think it best to vote the county dry be cause the Wells quart-a-month bill does not limit the amount of alco holic liquors that may be received by any person in territory that is not dry, and they fear that this condi tion may result in supplying blind tigers and other violations of law in neighboring counties. j The campaign in Wakulla has al- i ready reached the interesting stage- I Floridian Off to France.

Engineer's Death a Mystery. The world will never know exactlv how Engineer Olb'e C- Colbert met his death under his own ennrine on the loc: road of tho Southern Mill Companv about sixteen miles below Helen, but it will always be sup posed that he went to sleep with his head resting on the rails between the wheels of the enrdne and the tender- County Judge Benjamin A- Me einnis, as coroner, accompanied by Sheriff J. F. Houston wetc imme diately to the scene and the verdict was death by accident. His head was crushed by the engine, but there was not a scratch on any other part of his body. Mr- Colbert, wo was a man of excellent habits and most popular with both co-workers and employers, had dismounted from nis dav, and while resting for a while before the workmen arrived, sat on the ties by his engine. While so rest ing he evidently fell aslep and set tled backward till his head was on the track. His fireman, not knowing that his chief was there, mounted the cab and shifted the entrine with the tragic result recorded above. Mr Colbert, whose family resides in Munson, Santa Rosa county, was probably killed instantly as he ut tered no sound The discovery of blood on the wheels of the tender and none on the drivers of the engine brought the officers to the conclusion that Mr Colbert lay between the en gine and the tender when they were moved. Th body was shipped to Santa Rosa county. Cook Charged With Theft. Oscar Bryant, a well known negro cook "of Tallahassee, was" arrested Monday morning for the alleged theft of $rf0- Something over this amount of cash was missed by N. A.
