of the furniture ran thuH:
**<>ne dining room table, oak

“One sideboard, oak.
“Two bottles of whisky,(full)*'
Then the word “full” was
stricken out and replaced by
“empty,” and the inventory

A LBAr roR Lira.
A British observation balloon, anchored at the Western frotu, had
its cables cut by enemy aeroplanes, and the balloon soared thousands
of feel upward into the clouds. A wriirr in the London Mail, who
witnessed the incident, describes what f'lllowed. From the point where
it vanished, he says, we presently saw one small speck, then another,
dropping from the clouds. For some hundreds of fcei they fell like
dead weights, then parachutes opened, and the specks, now revealed
as men, were steadied in their earthward course, Ifoating rapidly, bU|
safely, to the ground.
Afr^r the balloon got free, they had destroyed their papers and in-
sirum'enis, clambered over the side uf the basket, and leaped for life
into the great void beneath them, trusting that the parachutes strapped
round their waists would open when they should.
Thinlc of that desperate spring into the vast, gray vapory nothing
ness beneath the balloon; the feelings of ihe men as they made it, un
certain of what would happen; the awful sensation of casting yourself
blindly from such an appalling height with the knowledge that only a
ilintsy piece of material, which might act rightly and might not, inter
vened between yoi 'ell nd a crash into ihe earth many thousands of
feel below; Ihe lensc stram of the stone-like drop through two hundred
feet of the void before the parachute opened, and then the anxious
menial query, through ihe later stage*of the descent: “What shall I
light upon? —a matter of supreme consequence that chance (overna
ibsoluieiy. In this case, the men made a safe landing.
