ID���������For the first  tune in the history of aeronautics an  airship was used to practical purposes as the .���������means of delivering a message today, when Lincoln Bc-cchey,  the boy aeronaut in charge of C'ap-  fiain T. Si. Baldwin's airship "City  .of Portland," carried a note from the  exposition "rounds lo Vancouver barracks, a distance of nine mPes. The  'Hight was made in 40 minutes against  'a strong wind. A large crowd of  [people watched the start and wished  fllie darmg aeronaut gcod  speed  At a few minutes past 11 o'clock  the an* slup City of*Portland, with  ..Bcechey in charge, rose gracefully  from two sawlrors.es on the exposi-  ftion ground and sailed boldly in a  nor llieastcrly direction. The/ rcro\vd  ���������watched the airship until it passed  fiom view. An hour later a telephone  .message was . received 'telling of the  ship's safe arrival -at Vancouver barracks and announcing that the ship  ���������had started back. On the return trip  the wind, winch had opposed the ship  .on the way over, vccrccL, and blew in  almost the opposite direction. This  jriadclhc airship's progress slow, but  Beechey stuck manfully .to.'bis-post  rand guided the frail craft across lhc  Columbia and lhc Willamette ' rivets. Then, as Lhc gasoline supply was  l mining low. and the velocity of the  ���������wind increasing every minute, he made  a giacoful     descent     in an open lot  It was the purpose of the aeronaut  fio deliver Ins message to .Genera'.'  Constant Williams, commandant ai  iVancouvcr and return with a message  from the commandant.' He-was only partly siiccossful. yet the feat  ���������which he performed was one unique  in ncronamic history, and is not likely tO'lc repealed, unless the aeronaut  docs it hinvscif.  aflnij  eeds  What you get for your money is just as im=  m-ant as the amount you pay.
