PARIS, July 14 The French national
holiday wa. enthusiastically celebrated
today In brilliant weather.

stand and aroused the greatest enthusiasm
on the part of the spectators.
Immediately afterward M. Loubet and
the ministers, with their escorts, left Long
Champa, warmly applauded along the
route, as they had been while proceeding
to the review ground.

appearance' of Ssntos-Dumont In an air
ship over Long Champa. He saluted the
president with three strident blasts from
the whistle of his motor and a salvo of
revolver shots. Then, amid th. applause
of. the spectators, tho aeronaut sailed off

Early this morning the searching
parties started out again, one of them
making a discovery that filled the spec
tators with horror. Far down one of the
sides of the Sentinel fissures, whose crev
asses drop down In some places for thous
ands of feet, suspended on a ledge that
Jutted out from the steep side of the nar
row canyon, the almost lifeless form of
Mrs. Johns was found by Mr. Potter, a ho

was .able to feebly signal and make Mr.
Potter know that she still lived.
After trying In vain to work hi. way
down the amustaln eWe-te- her, Mr1 Pot

for help. Provided with plenty of rope
and carrying a stretcher, a party of eight
made Its way back to the crevasse where
the work was ooromenoed of trying to ex

Mrs. Johns' escape from a frightful
death had been nothing less than miracu

crevasse walls and had partially brokeas

scratched and bruised, lay Mrs. Johns,
weak from exhaustion and lack of food

night. With difficulty the rope waa ee

made to help her to the rim atove. unis
attempt proved futile.
