Lieutenant fThompson and ber-
geant Chapman, were then able to ex
rirte themselves from their narrow
quarters without harm, although ru
mors flooding the city had them se
riously injuredjand all but killed, as
a matter of. 4act, they were .very
close to death, or severe bodily m-
ury during those few uncertain se-
tonds. ! -
AnDarntlv the two men were less
concerned about their own welfare,
and less affected by what they had
gone through ,than they were by the
partial destruction of their beautiful
machine. v -

"I'd rather t had bn me t?n
th.(old machine." said Sergeant
Chapman in a voice tremulous with
emotion. .
,.To these men, of whom th biplane
had come to be almost a part, it was
like losing a friend.
Though they carried with them an
extra propeller, the damage to the
right wing of the plane and other
incidental breakage "was beyond the
scope of emergency repair work, and
the two aviators began at once tak-
ng' the machine apart for shipment.
It. was shinned Friday night by
exDress to Park' Field, Memphis, and
the two disconsolate bird men had to
content themselves with the plebeian
resource of travel by rail.
The recked aeroplane is a Curtis
training machine of -f he biplane type.
The engine is eight cylinder, ninety
horse-power.1 It is of a different type
from those ised in' fight, according to
Lieutenant Thompson nnd not built
for lone distance flying or great
speed. This style of machine is used
for the training of student aviators
at the various camps.
