Her hour than this, however,, the fit^J \ wind had given him some misgiving as to the possibility of his machine being able to make an ascent. After waiting for a couple of hours, the wind fell, and Scotland decided to ascend. The aviator had the machine completely under control, and circled three Dimes around the Park. He then made a wider sweep, flying over the Musselburgh district. Hundreds of people, craned their necks as the aviator flew overhead. Mr Scotland gave an even better exhibition this morning. His Caudron , got a nice take-off, and was soon heading" across "the top of the harbour towards, Moming,ton. He returned under easy "'control across 1 South Dunedin.
