BALLON ASCENSION


ON ACCOUNT OF RENT IN THE BALLON THE FIRST ATTEMPT BY MRS. GRIBBLE WAS A FAILURE , BUT AFTER THE HUGE MONSTER HAD BEEN BROUGHT BACK FROM IT'S WANDERINGS , AND INFLATED THE SECOND TIME , IT WAS TURNED LOOSE AND WENT HEAVEN WARD , CARRYING WITH IT THE YOUNG AERONAUT WHO DARED TO RISK HER LIFE AT THE END OF A FEW SMALL CORDS , HANGING THOUSANDS OF FEET ABOVE MOTHER EARTH . A MORE EXCITING OR BEAUTIFUL SCENE WAS NEVER WITNESSED BEFORE , AND THE IMMENSE THRONG THAT WITNESSED THE ASCENSION WERE DELIGHTED .
