SAILED HIGH OVERHEAD
Some kind of Air Craft Seen by a Man near Tulare
TULARE, Cal., Nov 21. -- That airship is cavorting through the atmosphere
that overhangs this vicinity. D.H. Risdon, who was working in an orchard
near Tagus, four miles north of this place, sighted a mysterious object passing over at a considerable
elevation yesterday afternoon.
A tramp was near at the time, and remarked that he never saw a balloon
sail against the wind. But while the object overhead seemed to be
sailing into the teeth of the wind, it may have found an opposite
current in an upper stratum.
It was passing to the northwest and Risdon declares it was like an
immense sheet spread out in the air. It soon passed out of sight.
Risdon had not previously read or heard of the strange visitor said to
have been seen at Sacramento, and as his reputation for veracity is
excellent, his story is generally believed. [1a] [1b]
