The broken parts must be replaced from
Parla and a resumption of the flight to
London before tomorrow Is improbable.
Neither Molssant nor his mechanician
was Injured in the accident.
The good fortune which accompanied
Molssant In the earlier stage of his flight
from Parts and In his record-breaking
Journey across ,the channel with a pas
senger seems to have deserted him with his
arrival on English shores.
Motor defects in the aeroplane, which
yesterday had worked without a slip,
forced him to make two successive land
ings when about half way on the course
between London and Tllmanstone, where
he ascended at 4:66 this morning.
His first descent, a mile from Sitting
bourne, about twenty-five miles from Lon
don, was due to the displacement of a
small pin In the mechanism, entailing an
Immediate descent. He narrowly escaped
disaster In the landing. Just missing the
mouth of a deep chalk pit. a fall Into

aviator and his mechanician.. Repairs to
the machine detained him nearly three
He then made a second start, but had
scarcely covered ten miles toward his goal
when a second accident brought him down
at Ralnham, Kent. A rod connecting up
the driving gear of the aeroplane was
fractured, stopping the engine and forcing
the Chicagoan to plane down Immediately
to the 'ground. He landed In a field, but
only skillful ' handling of th ' aeroplane
prevented It plunglng'lnto a clump of trees,

Molssant made an.abrunt turn to. escape I
these and, the machine came down heavily,
breaking the chassis and smashing a blade
of. the , propeller. Molssant and his
mechanician climbed out uninjured, but on
looking over the . damage were of the
opinion that the repairs could not be done
on the spot and they must wait for new
parts, for which they immediately tele
graphed to Paris.
The machine of Molssant at present lies
In a most awkward position, every foot of
the garden where the landing was made
presenting , such obstacles that Molssant
and the experts who had gathered to in
spect the monoplane can scarcely conceive
now he managed to descend without serious
Injury to himself and his mechanism.
He protests against the' report that he Is
of Spanish descent, and insisted proudly
today to the visitors, who conversed with
him: . .

Mrs. Rosella B. Condon of Pawnee City,
state organizer of the Women's auxiliary,

mendous Impression with the audience,
which more than filled the auditorium tent.

her great sincerity brought her auditors to
their feet again and again. She outlined
the history of the fight which America had
made for-free Institutions and called upon
the younger generation to keep up the
struggle In which the veterans before her

Mrs. Davis of Lincoln, state commander
of the auxiliary, also made a splendid talk,
holding closely the attention of those who
listened. The afternoon session was de

.Farmer Rejoice Over Benefits.
Among farmers whose property was Irri
gated this year, there Is great rejoicing, for
their fine crops of oats are selling at 2
cents per pound. Alfalfa yielding six tons
per acre is now In demand at from $12 to
$15.' Few of the settlers are selling, how
ever, for prospects are good for $20 a ton.
Returns from more than one farm under
the Belle Fourche irrigation project this
year will more than clear off all water
right charges on land.
The experiment farm is doing Important
work in the way of securing, breeding and
selection of varieties of crops better suited
to lands under project. They are also
