American Aviator Is Hurt In Egypt
Mortimer Singer Falls With Aeroplane At Cairo And Both legs And One Arm Are Broken

     Cairo, Egypt, Feb. 1, 1910 - Mortimer Singer, the American aviator, fell with an aeroplane in which he was practicing here today. Both of his legs and an arm were broken.
     Singer had a narrow escape in May last, when the balloon in which he was rising at Seville, Spain, dashed against the railroad station and, bounding off, struck a moving train. Ballast was unloaded in the nick of time and the balloon shot upward.
     Last month Singer contested for the Michelin cup at Mourmelon, France.

200 Persons In Peril When Flying Machine Goes On Tear
Spectators at Denver Lie Flat on Ground to Escape Being Mowed Down by Paulhan's Biplane

     Denver, Colo. Feb. 3, 1910 - Two hundred persons narrowly escaped death twice this afternoon, during the second and third attempts of Paulhan to fly at Overland park. The final attempt ended in the wreck of the biplane.
     Paulhan made one successful flight, then started a second time, and almost mowed down those who had invaded the field. At the second attempt he swerved his machine in trying to escape the crowd and struck one of the irrigation ditches that cross the field. One of the wires supporting the framework gave way and the aviator realized he must come to the ground, but directly in front of him were 200 spectators who saw the machine sweeping down on them. Their only safety lay in throwing themselves on the ground. This they did to a man.
     The machine sailed over them, but the front of the biplane hit the ground with such force that Paulhan was thrown out. Unhurt he arose, pursued the machine, which was bumping over the ground, caught it, and stopped the motors.

Making Ready For Long Balloon Trip
German Aeronaut And Party To Cross Atlantic Next May

     Madrid, Spain, Feb. 13, 1910 - A telegram to El Imparcial from Teneriffe states that the German aeronaut Herr Brucker, together with Colonel Shack and Captain Mesner, have almost completed arrangements for their trans-Atlantic voyage. The three intend to make the trip in a large dirigible balloon, leaving Teneriffe early in May for New York via Porto Rico, Cuba, Florida and Louisiana. The route selected is based on calculations and observations of air currents made in the Canaries by Professor Hergessell, meteorological expert.

Court Give Wright's Airship Monopoly
Under Restraining Order, None Allowed To Use "Tail" Apparatus

     New York, NY Feb. 18, 1910 - Taking advantage of what they term an "infringement of patent" on a certain part of the "tail" apparatus of all aeroplanes that depend on the warping of planes for successful flying, the Wright brothers of Dayton, Ohio, have established themselves, for the present at least, as monarchs of the air by securing from Judge learned Hand of the United States Court of New York a temporary injunction restraining Louis Paulhan, the flying Frenchman, from making any more flights in this country.
     As practically every other aviator of any note uses a machine which, like that of Paulhan, embodies this particular device of the Wright brothers in its equipment, this injunction in its import applies to them as well. This the Dayton aviators and their million-dollar syndicate, if the injunction is made permanent, will have a clear monopoly of air travel and theirs will be one of the greatest trusts ever operated.
