Blondin gets his first fall.

--While Blondin was performing on stilts at Troy, last Tuesday, he attempted to turn a summersault, but the crotch that sustained the rope suddenly gave way, and he fell amongst the seats and the people below. He was considerably hurt by the fall, and one of his arms appeared to be partially paralyzed by contact with the hard substance of the back of a seat.
