decided to make ths start - It was 10
o 'clock in ths morning when ths great
airship waa brought out of Its shod and
the daring explorers took their places
in the car. 1
When tbs anchors, were east loose,
the airship ascended beautifully, the en
gine were set in motion and everything
seemed to work to perfection. Ths big
air craft was manuvered for soma time
and answered the helm perfectly.
Then its head was turned northward,
and it set oat at a speed of 85 miles an
hour. Suddenly, after having covered
32 miles, and when everything seemed
to bs going splendidly, the leather guide
rope, to -which was attached 1000
pounds of provisions and stores, broke
away. The accident occurred just as

ths steamer Fram waa anchored. After

aboard th Fram, which started imme
diately to tow the airship to Spiteea-
The strain waa so great, however,
that it threatened to tear the car to

and Mr. Wellman finally decided to
bring the airship down to the surface
of the water. Thia waa effected with

But the ill-luck of the expedition was
