Their story of the hours when they

thrilling, says a special Ixmdon cable

being blowu over Cu I haven they
were not alarmed at tbe prospert of be
ing carried acrosa the sea. On tbe
contrary," they were elated, for tbe
wind waa driving tbem northwest and
as It was estimated their gas would
last fifteen hours they saw a prospect
of lauding In Kngtand and winning the
race. But a little later tbe wind veer
ed and, blowing with terrific force,
drove tbem northward through pitch
darkness and bitter cold. Wben they
realised the situation: Dr. Nlerneyer
exclaimed, "Now we have done It!"
"Yes, we are In for It" responded
Heldemann, and each was silently busy
with his own thoughts. - - ' -
Presently they bow the lights of two
or three ships far below. They shouted
and signaled with their electrlo lamps"
In vain. They were driven helplessly
for two hours. About dawn they aaw
the tight of the Prlnx Wilhelm and
Ignuled frantically, and at lost the
steamer's foghorn anawered tbem.
Dr. Nlerneyer, telling the atory, said:
"Heldemann shouted. 'We are saved T
but wa little knew. Tbe worst was yet
to come. Suddenly we realized that we
were traveling much faster than the
Bteamer and unleaa we opened the
valve and dropped tbe chance of res

of tbe balloon, and tbe car struck the
wavea with tremendous force. Tbe
car, being weighted with ballast in

driven flopping through the wavea
which buffeted us In tbe darkness. We
were suddenly thrown Into consterna

growing dimmer, and we watched tbem
lessening until they almost disap
peared. "We could not believe that we wore
abandoned. It must be that we were
still sieedlng faster than tbe Bteamer.
The gaa bag acted aa a sail, and our
only hope seemed to be to rip it Pull
ing the ripping cord with all the
strength left In my numbed arms, tbe
envelope collapsed on tbe water, and
tbe car sank deeper.
"Half froxen and choked by the
wavea, which we could not avoid, with
eyes smarting from the salt water and
naked except for our trousers, having
hastily stripped In readiness for a
awlm, we still held on for our lives
with our bands, having lost all foot
hold when tbe basket sank.
"The steamer's Ughta were now mere
specks In tbe darkness. So they bad
abandoned ua. 'Men, men, how ran

"Then the llghta vanished altogether.
We aaw our end near. I aald to Helde

" 'Nor can I, he anawered quietly.
"Aa we gripped the netting for a new
hold our bands touched- We Involun
tarily clasped fingers.
"'Goodby!' I said. 'It won't last
much longer.' .
" 'Ooodby I responded Heldemann.
"I ehut my eyea to await tbe end.
8uddenly out of tbe darkness we heard
a shout It waa a human voice, the
sweetest sound I ever heard. Rapidly
nearlng ua was a boat which the Print
Wllheem had sent to find us.
"'Catch hold of the oar!' shouted a
voice In the German tongue, and tbe
boat drew alongside, and the brave
aallora with difficulty helped ua on
"I hardly know bow we fought death
and won. Twenty minutes later the
Bteamer came up and took ua on board.
It picked up the balloon too. Tbe cap

are here to say bo. But we are disap

One of the moat Interesting pow

Hayes presided over the meeting The
Indiana were In council, protesting
against being removed from the reser

chieftains among the Indiana partici

Growers of potatoes on a semlcom

from the Inroads of bugs and blight
this year, which bring most forcefully
to their attention the need of a sys
tematic course of spraying in order to
hold these pests in che:-k. An effective
spraying outfit can be had for a mod

mixture will stop tbe blight, and tbe
parls green added to the same solution
will put a quietus on the bugs. We
