Tho following, taken out of an old
book, says a writer in Tho Leeds Mer
cury, will give an idea how tho early
balloons wcro inflated, and will show,
also, that Baldu In a decent in a para
cliuto is an old invention: "On Sept. 21,
1803, M. Gnrncrln (tiled his balloon with
hydrogen gas at St. Ocorgo's Parade,
North Audlcv street. Tho cas was mado
from diluted sulnhurio ncid, together
with a quantity of iron filings, placed In
thlrty-thrco casks to generate, and by
communication with thrco larger casks
or receivers, and then by tubes to the
balloon. At 0 o'clock tho balloon rose
with its long appendago of tho paruchuto,
tho uoronout In tho little basket. Tens
of thousands of spectators wcro fixed in
astonishment and admiration at tho gal
lant adventurer. For eight minutes tho
balloon continued to ascend till it ar
rived at such an immenso height as to
bo scarcely visible. When Garncrln cut
away from tho balloon tho parachute did
not expand Immediately. It fell with
great velocity for a short spaco of timo,
when it opened, and tho descent became
gradual, but attended with a remarkable
oscillation hko a pendulum of a clock.
Thcso vibrations ueenmo less as tho
ground wns neared. Tho balloonist de
scended in a flold near tho smallpox hos
