A DUEL IN BALLOONS
Curious Aerial Battle Fought by Two
Frenchmen In 1S08.
In this day of the development in
aeronautics it may be interesting to
recall tlie first duel that was ever
fought in the air. It took place In
180S and, as might have been ex
pected, occurred in France. XI. de
Grandpre and M. le Pique had a quar
rel arising out of jealousy concerning a
lady engaged in the Imperial Opera.
They agreed to tight a duel to settle
their respective claims, and iu order
that the heat of angry passion should
not interfere with the polished ele
gance of the proceeding they postponed
the duel for a month, the lady agree
ing to bestow her smiles on the sur
vivor. The duelists were to fight in
Two balloons were constructed ex
actly alike. On the day of the duel
De Graudpre and bis second entered
the car of one balloon, Le Pique and
his second the other. This was iu the
garden ot the Tuilerles, amid a big
crowd of spectators. The men were
to fire, not at each other, but at each
other's balloon, in order to bring them
down by the escape of gas. As ids
tols would hardly have served for this
purpose, each aeronaut took a blunder
buss in bis car.
At a given signal the ropes holding
the balloons were cut, and up they
went into the air. The wind was
nearly moderate and kept the balloons
in their respective positions, about
eighty yards apart When about half
a mile up in the air the preconcerted
signal for firing was given. M. le
Pique fired, but missed. M. de Graud
pre fired and sent a ball through Le
Pique's balloon. The balloon collapsed,
the car descended with frightful rapid
ity, and Le Pique and his second were
dashed to pieces.
'De Grandpre continued his ascent
and terminated his aerial voyage at a
distance of seven leagues from Paris.
