A DARING LEAPER 1 How Colonel Albright Kept the Thing in Motion. The Last Sad Whirl of the Great Southern Imposition. FOUR THOUSAND FEET IN THE AIR Colonel Albright Uses a Mail Sack for a Parachute and Makes a Very Suc cessful Leap for Life. The last day of the Southern Impo sition was on yesterday. It was intended that this should be a gala day, but few gals were out to see what really hap pened. A large balloon rilled with natural gas, direct from Findlay, Ohio, was on the grounds, and as there was no other per son willing to go up, Colonel Albright finally volunteered. It was a rocky day in his life, but in such an emergency, why should he care ? The large and tempting balloon was finally inflated the ropes were cut loose, and just as the huge air ship was about to start, Colonel Albright bor rowed a dollar and then he said he was ready. John T. Patrick charged fifty cents admission and gave one-fourth of the proceeds to the blind and halt. Those who had halted were the gentlemen who had seen the show once and who swore they never cared to see it again. But Up! Up ! ! Up ! ! ! Until Colonel Albright looked no lar ger than Gen.Thom Finger (and he is no relation to Major Finger) the air ship rolled its way and then just when it appeared a tin' speck in the far off sky, Colonel Albright pouched himself, as they say in the post office, and jumped out.. It was a perilous leap ! Men and women held their breath, and some men changed their breath but the colonel was comiDg down, and as he is a determined man he would not stop ! Finally he alighted astride the paster and cutter which farmer joe daniels uses in printing his state printing circular called The Chronicle. It was a great day and the orphans who received one fourth the gate receipts are very happy to know that it was no greater. AS SHE IS BUILT ! Some New Facts About the Belt Railroad Here. The Real Intention of Colonel Brodie Dnke, the President. WHAT THE END WILL FINALLY BE Another Trip on the New Road and a Chance to See Captain Pamplin' Full Chin Whiskers. The new lielt railroad is getting there at about "one mile a day. This is not a very rapid gate not gait for a new railroad, but as that is as fast as the builder, Captain Pamplin, desires, it is not for us to say that it is too slow. The cross-ties are now being laid, and a brief recital of a briefer interview with the president, Colonel Brodie Duke, may be appreciated by the readers of Tub Globe. Mr. Duke when found at his office po litely informed us that it was none of our dod. gasted business what he proposed to do with his railroad. J'Do you want to sell it V we asked, and we pulled out a check book on the old Buck Blackwell bank. If I do," he said, "I will look for a customer." "But," we insisted, "this is a serious business. If you want to sell your blamed old railroad and Captain Pamp lin with it just make us an offer." C2TThat was what we said. And then Colonel Brodie Duke he said : "It is my intention to build that rail road to Alaska to go around the Beh ring Straits or any other straits, and to tap Russia and to keep on going. If I want to build a railroad whose business is it V I propose to keep that railroad going. I shall not let up on it until I die. When you and other idiots think it is finished I shall keep on building. I call it a Belt railroad because I propose to belt the. first fool who undertakes to find out anything more about it than is to be found in the first number of my paper, soon to be printed, c died the Loomer." And Colonel Duke took a walk and left The Globe reporter in the rain. It may not be out of place to state that Col onel Duke carried his owa umbrella. Captain Pamplin, the builder, was seen in about an hour and he said as he had no money to loan and as he had a repu tation at stake (perhaps a railroad stake) he could not afford to be caught in our company and that the road would be com pleted just as soon as he got through building it. And we think that this is about all there is new of the Belt road. THE DURHAM SUPPLY COHPABIY, SUCCESSOR TO IS THE- OLDEST HOUSE IN THE CITY ! Having Extended over a Period of 20 Years.
