BY THE TOES IN THE This ballooning is not as dangerous as some By the use of a bas ket people are inclined to look upon anj ascension with tnueh inicrest and aniuse I Ascertained that the time was at hand when some improvement ought to be made in seronauting to attract the peoples attention I ascended first in a and after ascertanig a few points I threw aside that and since then have never used I next ascended dressed as an and used nothing but a trapeze The people became and a new interest was awak ened in At the height of half a mile I always went vari ous such as skinning the whirling hanging by my and other evolutions generally done by circui performers on the At when threequarters of a mile I hung by the back of my head from the People call me reckless but they forget that I

subject of wonderment why it with all our arts and that we are beaten and outdone by the common When Fulton built his first steamboat to travel the waters he did not imitate the move ments of the fish the locomotive did not move oil nor did Morse go to the heavens for if we desire to navigate the air we must not comply too closely with the move ments of for there is a fair chance for much We see asrial locomotion in its most primitive state when we look at a bird THE man MUST TCE even as the locomotive passes the or electricity the The most difficult part of navigation has been dis and that
