FROM THE OTHER WORLD.
A remarkihle Visitor in We -tern Ne- j
Klcclal to the State Journal.
Beukleman, June 7. A inot remark
able phenomenon occurred about 1
o'clock yesterday afternoon at a point
thirty-five miles northwest of this
place. Johu W. Eili3, a well known
ranchman, was going out to his herd in
company with ihree of his herders and
several other cowboys engaged in the
annual roundup. While riding along
a draw they heard a tenific rushiug,
roaring noisa overhead, and looking up,
saw what appeared a blazing meteor of
immense j-iza falling at an angle to the
earth. A moment later it struck the
jioun.l out ui' ii'ir. dver ,: bank.
Set milling up tin: stcp hiii iliey saw
the object buuii'iing idu'jg half a mile
away and disappear in another draw.
Galloping toward it with all their
fpeed, they were astounded to see sev
eral fragments of cogwheels and other
pieces of machinery lying on the ground
scattered in the path made by ihe surial
visitor, glo .viug with heat so intenstTas
to scorch the graS3 for a long distance
around each fragment and making it
impossible for one fo approach it.
Coming t the edge of the deep ravine
into which the strange object had fallen,
they undertook to see what it was.
But the heat wao so great that ihe air
about was fairly ablaze and it emitted a
light 60 dazzling that the eye could not
rest upon it more than a moment. An
idea of the heat may be gained from
the fact that one of the party, a cow
boy named Alf Williamson, stood with
his head incautiously exposed over the
bank, and iu less than half a minute
he fell senseless. His face was desper
ately blii tared aud his hair singed to a
crisp. His condition is said to be dan
gerous. The distaace from the ocro-lite,
or whatever it is, was nearly 200 feet.
The burned man was taken to Mr. El
lis' house, cared for as well as circum
stances would allow and a doctor sent
for. His brothes, who lives in Denver,
has just been telegraphed for.
Finding it impossible to approach the
mysterious visitor, the party turned
back on its trail. Where it first touched
the earth the ground was sandy aud
bare of grass. The sand was fused to
an unknown depth over a space about
twenty feei wide by eighty feet loug,
and the melted strut!" was still bubbling
and hissing. Between this and the final
resting place there were several other
like soots where it hai come in coutact
with the ground, hut none so well
Finding it impossible to do any in
vestigating, Mr. Ellis returned t his
house and sent out messengers to the
neighboring ru"',""03. When night
came the light uom the woudeiful ob
ject beamed almost like the sun,
and the visitors who went ont to see it
were entirely powerless to bear the
This morning another visit was made
to the spot. In the party was E. W.
Rawlins, brand inspecter for this dis
trict, who came into Benkleman to
night, and from whom a full verifica
tion of particulars is obtained.
The smaller portions of the scattered
machinery had cooled so thai they
could be approached, but not handled,
One piece that looked much like the
blade of a propeller screw, of a metal
in appearance like bras?, about sixteen
inches wide, three inches thick and
three and a half feet long, was picked
ud on a spade. It would ;ot weign
more than five pound3, but appeared as
strong and compact as any known metal.
A fragment of a wheel with a milled
rim, apparently having had a diameter
of seven or eight feet, was als; picked
up. It seemed to be of the same mate
rial and had the same remarkable light
ness. The aerolite, or whatever it 13, seems
to be about fifty or sixty feet long, cyl
indrical, aud about ten or twelve feet
in diameter. Great excitement exists
in the vicinity, and the round-up is
suspended whiie the cowboys wait for
the wondeiful find to cool off so they
can examine it.
Mr. Ellis is here and will take the
first train to the laud office with the in
tention of securing the land on which
the strange thing lies, so that his claim
to it cannot be disputed.
A party left here for the scene an
hour ago, and will travel all night. The
country in the vicinity is rather wild
and rough, and the roads are hardly
more than trails. Will telegraph all
particulars as fast as obtained.
