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.
