AVIATION.

London, December 17

Salmet, the aviator, accompanied by Mrs Assheton Harboured, left Folketone on Sunday morning and crossed the Channel in a stiff sou , wester. Salmet ran into a fog bank and lost his sense of direction. Deecending nearer the water, he discovered from a fishing smack that th6y were being blown at right angles to the proper course. After correcting the direction, Salmet found that be was making little headway and bad but a tiny amount of petrol left, so he decided to descend to the water near a steamer. Through the break of fog he saw a ship, and tried vainly to reach it. Then a shadow loomed upte the south. He headed for it, and landed at Dieppe. Hβ thought it was Boulogne.
