Crazy invention

Heneri Dupre, once a balloonist, was confined to a lunatic asylum in Pennysylvania, U.S.A. Displaying great cleverness, he secretly made a balloon - from a pair of pyjamas and other odds and ends of material he had collected with great care.

Then, when the other inmates were at prayers, Heneri Dupre climbed onto the roof of the lunatic asylum and connected a gas pipe to his pyjama balloon. Before the warders and inmates realized what was happening the pyjama balloon rose into the air, with Dupre hanging to a trapeze made of a broomstick and two ropes.

Unfortunately for Dupre, shots were fired, bringing the pyjama balloon down - and the enterprising madman was recaptured.
