THAT RAPID AIRSHIP

Now, the Citizens of Grant, Newaygo County, Claim To Have Spied It

Bailey, April 19 -- The people of Grant Station say they saw the famous airship pass over their town Saturday evening [April 17, 1897]. It was just ahead of the north bound evening train, so it was supposed the airship was racing the train. It was seen by many citizens of that place. It was supposed to have been nearly one mile from the earth and the length was about 200 feet. You have this as cheap as we got it.
