AIRSHIP HORROR. I A MID-AIR EXPLOSION. 1 Paris was horror-stricken on Monday by the news of a dreadful accident which occurred early in the morning, when the latest airship, "La Pax," was wrecked in mid-air by an explosion, and its inventor, M. Severo, a Brazilian Deputy, hurled to earth 1,500 feet below to meet a shocking death. The balloon, manned by Senor Severo and by an engineer named Sachet, in the employment of the Peicket firm which made the motors of the airship, left the park where it was kept. at half-past five on Monday morning. The mot-ions of the balloon, which seemed to be executed with great facility, were followed by a large number of per- sons, some in carriages, some in motors. The air- ship had arrived over the Avenue du Mame, nearly opposite the Rue de la Gaite, when suddenly a huge sheet of flame was seen to burst from it. The flame was followed by a tremendous report like that of a cannon, and the balloon, which was at the time at an altitude of about 150 yards, dropped to the ground. The two occupants fell on to the pavement. Efforts for their assistance were made at once, but Senor Se-vero and his assistant were dead. They had terrible wounds on their heads, and, moreover, their legs were broken. The bodies were taken to the police station in Rue de la Gaic-tc, the officials of which had at onco been apprised of the accident. The corpses of Senor Severo and his assistant, as thev lie on the mattress at the police station, present a fearful spectacle, especially that of Sachet, the engineer. The flame which caused the exp'osion burned him in the most shocking fashion. The skin of his face and hands was completely charred, and crumbled away at the touch. An effusion of blood to the head accentuated the ghastly aspect of the face. Sachet had evidently fallen on his left side because the thigh and ribs on that side alone are fractured. Senor bevero ieL en his feet. Bv the force ot tne impact the joints ?erc forced out of their place. It resul?ts e more- over from an examination conducted by Dr. Macret that the pelvis and ris e the unfortunate inventor were fractured, while his skull was also fractured.
