Forty one head of blooded cattle

Monday from Mexico. The cattle will
be shipped to Las Cruces. The cattle
are Holsteins and Jerseys. There were
also two horses imported in the shipment.
In this tank was stored the gasoline.
The car was connected to the gas pas,
by steel tubing of light construction.
On top of the tank was a platform ol,
two inch boards and on this rested a
hundred horse power motor, two or su
hcrse power, one 17 horse power motor
and a small dynamo.
Use of the Motors.
The 100 horse power motor was used
for the two forward vertical propellers
and othe other two large motors for two
pairs of orientable propellers. These
propellers could be turned from the
horizontal to the vertical and were used
to raise or lower the ship. The small

A hundred police were summoned and

Hundreds of persons who expected
the flight saw the Akron come out of
the hangar for the last time. Once
clear of the shed, Vaniman jumped into
the car, where the other four men al
ready had gone, and gave the word to
"let go." Instantly the ship rose. Van

inlet and the mainland, the ship's nose

Three of the widows of the men

Mrs. Bourtillion and Mrs. Klmer.
Mrs. Vaniman, although she fainted

when she saw her husband roppplng

The body of Calvin Vaniman was
