A GEE AT EOAD fiACE. The Contest Between Amateur "Wheelmen in Chicago. Hurley, Ayres, Street A Number of Record Breakers Will Par- tlcipiitct — A Dash Across Country to Pullman—Prospects for the Coining Knee. T. 1SM.1 The Pullman road race, thoug-h essentially Chieag-oan, is, nevertheless, an event toward which each year are turned the eyes of cj'clists in every section of the United States. With mere accident as a parent it has jnwvn into an oft'springr of such proportions that last year it was an event unequalled in the history of cycling, at least in this country; an event which •demonstrated that the wheelman's sport is one appreciated, not only by liis fellow wheelmen, but by the general public as well. Thousands of people lined the course last Decoration <day, and the cheers that went up as «ach cyclist passed showed that wheeling- is a recognized pastime of great importance. To the general cycling public, how<ever, the race is chiefly important because it uncovers one or more of the men who make up the Chicago racing 1 team, an aggregation which, when the cracks met last summer, had everything' its own way, which has, up to date, won 95 per cent, of all the team races in which its riders have competed and has to-day more fast men than that of any other city in the union. iFrom the Pullman road race sprang Arthur E. Lumsden, whom the Windy Ehlert, Rig-; and White. Joe Crcrjuan was the first to reach the Pullman hostelry, covering the distance in 1:1-2, which, at that time, was considered a very creditable performance. Among those who witnessed the start and finish of this chase was Mr. Robert D. Garden, an enthusiast in wheeling matters. The -chase suggested to him the idea of getting- up a handicap race over the same course and under such conditions as would make it popular •with wheelmen of all grades of speed. The result was the selection of Decoration day as the time of the race. Mr, on the course there can be no doubt. Intanse rivalry exists among the numerous clubs of the city and.the Pullman race is its incentive. So far the Chicago cycling club has had the best of it, having won the titne medal on every occasion and the race with two exceptions. WII.T, li. HUNTER. REVOLUTIONARY RELICS. Gf>V. Trumfoull'a War Office And Tomb Secured by a Patriotic Society. The Connecticut society of the Sons of the Revolution has come into possession of two most interesting revolutionary relics which were threatened with destruction. The old house used as u in' central parlt. After the Tribune put up a statue of Mr. Greeley in front of its building recently the printers abandoned their plan of erecting it near the big- newspaper offices. Mr. Doyle's statue represents Mr. Greeley in a somewhat similar posture to that of the Tribune's statue, as will be seen in the picture. The bronze will be about seven feet high and the pedestal about eight feet high. The figure of the great editor if represented standing would be about ten feet hinrh. M. H. TAN SICKLES'. city has christened "Our Artie." His mile in 2:30 flat will stand unsurpassed for years. He was an unknown rider •when he entered the Pullman race in "V38; he is to-day probably the most •widely-known amateur wheelman ia America. The Pullman race brought to light Winship, who -won the first race in '87. He is always sure of a place, and in this respect is the best team race rider in the west. Though he does not often reach the tape first he is always dose up and is therefore one of the safest riders in the Chicago team. It is curious to note in. passing that those who were unearthed by winning the races of '87 and 'SS united forces in '89 and made tandem records for the world. As before stated the Pullman road race is an accident. Some time in November, 1680, a number of the members of the Chicago bicycle club began casting 1 about for some form of amusement for Decoration day, "Thursday, the Thirtieth" is not usually a balmy, summer-like day in the region about the Lake city, but Chicago riders are hardy fellows and push their wheels as merrily through the mud and sleet of winter roads as over the smooth surface of the summer boulevard. Hence it is cot strange that a "hare and hounds" chase should have been decided on as a proper means of arousing an appetite for savory turkey and juicy mince pie. Strange or not the resiilt of the talk was the issuance of an invitation to the •wheelmen of Chicago to join, in such a chase, the course to be from, the Leland, in the heart of the city, to the Hotel Florence in Pullman. While the surveyor has never leveled -.the transit over the turns and twists to the road to the city of cars, cycle-meter- bearing wheels innumerable have traversed it. These have indicated a diS- STOST ISZJLNI> AVESTTE. Garden went to work with a will, and, owing to his popularity among the men in his line of business and his unbounded enthusiasm, built up, by voluntary subscription, a respectable prize list aggregating some twenty articles of cycling- paraphernalia and a money value of seven hundred dollars. Thirty-four men out of a total of forty-one who entered for the race came to the starting point May SO, 1SST. The time limit was sixteen minutes, N. H. Van Sicklen started at scratch with Robert Bhlert, who refused a small handicap. The winner turned up in H. R. Winship, who started from the 8:30 mark and covered the distance in 1:02:55, which was the fastest time of the day, thus capturing not only the first prize, valued at one hundred and forty dollars, but also the forty-dollar medal offered for "best time." H. L. Wheeler, the limit man, finished in 1:15:32. Van Sicklen dropped out early in the race. Ehlert finished twentieth. In 1SSS the entries numbered sixty- six, of whom seventy-one started. The prizes numbered twenty, valued at seven hundred and .fifty dollars. The limit that year was reduced to fourteen minutes, five starters getting it. Van Sicklen was alone on scratch. The day dawned bright and clear. The boulevards were as smooth as a billiard table. Stony Island, avenue seemed to have lost many of its ruts and much of its roughness. The "sand hill" and the "potato patch" were at their best. A moderately strong rear .wind urged on the riders. These favorable circumstances foreshadowed a breaking of records. . Nor were the seekers of new records disappointed. Winship again captured the time medal, making- the phenomenal xecord of 53:20. 'Van Sicklen finished five seconds behind. The winner of the first prize was Arthur E. Lumsden. He entered the race comparatively unknown and was granted a handicap of 11 minutes. His' running time was 1:47..

Trumbull, at Lebanon, Conn., where the plans of the revolutionary leaders were discussed, was fast falling into decay, and his tomb, where lie the bones of several revolutionary celebrities, was crumbling away. They had both been offered to the town by Mrs, Wattles, their ag-ed owner, on condition that they should be kept in repair, but the penurious farmers on whom the decision rested would not undertake the small outlay that would be necessary. The JTew York Sun some months ago published the facts and aroused the attention of the Sons of the Revolution, and they sent a committee to treat with Mrs. Wattles. The old war office was many years ago removed from its old site on the town green and is in a state of dilapidation. It will be brought back to its old position, where Washington, Trumbull, Putnam, Knox, Sullivan, Spence, the two Adamses, franklin, Jefferson, John Jay, Lafayette, Rochambeau, Admiral Tiernay and other revolutionary leaders, American and French, used to sit around a table and discuss their plans of campaign. The day of the removal will be made a great revolutionary festival in which all Connecticut will take part. The old house was Gov. Trumbull's place of business before the outbreak of the war. He was engaged in the shipping trade with the West Indies, his vessels coming up as far as Norwich and the goods they landed being sent over the country in carts, Gov. Trumbull's tomb is in one of the oldest graveyards in- New England. In a Jffakiny Glad the Waste (Waist) Places. " That's what I call making glad the waist places," said Smithson, as he put his arm. around a lady's waist. But Lilly won't care much for this show of affection if Smithson doesn't get rid of that disagreeable catarrh of his. Won't somebody tell him that Dr. Sage's Catarrh Kemedy will cure him. By _ its mild, soothing, antiseptic, cleansing and healing properties, Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy cures the worst cases of Chronic Catarrh in the Head, as thousands can testify. " Cold in the Head " is cured with a few applications. Catarrhal Headache is relieved and cured as if by m.igic. In perfect faith, the makers of Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy—the World's Dispensary Medical Association, of Buffalo, y. Y., offer to pay $500 to any one suffering from Chronic Catarrh in the Head whom they cannot cure. Now, if the conditions were reversed -—if they asked you to pay S500 for a positive cure you might hesitate. Here are reputable'men, with years of honorable dealing; thousands of dollars and a great name back of them. They believe in themselves. Isn't it worth a trial ?

Then come three miles of ordinary country road, which is generally in fair •condition after r^in.. The next three and a half miles, including' the "potato patch" and the "sand hill," over which no wheelman has ever ridden, are rough »ad uneven and the scene of many memorable "spills." The remaining •one and one-quarter miles are through •the town of Pullman, with excellent roadbed, but many annoying- right-angle turns. There were no prizes in the "hare sind hound" chase referred to; the love of speeding, a friendly rivalry and a little glory being the only incentive to srrge the riders on to victory. The •"hares" • were Crennan and Kluge. of tihe Chicago club; Davis and Bowbeer, <o! the Illinois, and Frennesen,; of the Owls. Among the "hounds," of whom there were twenty-five, .were such well- known wheelmen as Iniralls. Peters. THE SASD HILL. effort, but the remarkable time he made gave promise of greater performances. Those who thus prophesied have not been disappointed, for since that time his star has been steadily' in the ascendancy, and his racing career an unbroken line of brilliant successes. Today, notwithstanding some defeats of the last year, in the judgment of most impartial wheelmen he stands the fastest amateur in America. The race this year was productive of a curious and significant incident. W. A. Rhodes, a professional, who was engineered by outside parties for advertising purposes, finished in 54:52, but with true professional instinct he maintained that the time was wrong and the timekeepers prejudiced. It proved conclusively that professional "side-shows" in connection with the race added little to its interest. In 1880 the race had come to be considered the greatest in the country. It brought one hundred and thirteen entries and seventy-two starters, despite the facts of heavy roads and threatening sky. The time limit was reduced to twelve minutes, nine men yceivmg it. With Van .Sicklen on scratch, were Lumsden and Terry Andraa, of Milwaukee. Winship did not start. The race was won by Frank Bodach, of the Aeolus club, who started from the eleven minute mark and covered the distance in 1:18. Lumsden again captured the time medal, making the distance in 56:45 with Van ;Sicklen one; minute and three seconds behind him. Andrae finished not a wheel's length behind the. "Old War Horse." In 18S9 there was much talk of further reducing the time limit. Eight minutes had many advocates, ten minutes more. The twelve minute limit was finally retained, a vote of the wheelmen in caucus assembled deciding it. Already the question is being asked: "Who is to win this year?" That there will be the greatest strutrffle ever made TBtnrura.1. TOMB. it lie the remains of himself and wife, his two sons, who both played a prominent part in the revolution, William "Williams, one of the signers of the declaration of independence, who was the governor's son-in-law, and a number of other relatives and descendants. The old marble tombstone is all chipped and worn, but the inscriptions are still in a good state of preservation. It will be preserved, but a new and more imposing monument is in contemplation. TRIBUTE TO GREELEY. Model of a Statue of Heroic Size to Be Erected by tho Printers. The statue of Horace Greeley which the printers commissioned Alexander Doyle to model for them in bronze which they intended to erect in Printing House square or City Hall park is, according to the New York Sun, completed all but the casting. The plaster model, full size, is now in Doyle's studio i»-Twentieth street. • The statue, with its pedestal, is to cost 815,000. The movement originated immediately after Mr. Greeley's death, —Against the Plug.—A doctor ai Charlestown, Mass., says the plug hat is responsible for much of the catarrh in the northern states. Between ten men who wear plugs and ten men who wear eadies, the latter have 50 per cent, less of the unpleasant affliction. Sit down on your plug.—Detroit Free Press. —A Philadelphia lady, who has many boarders, was telling a friend in market recently what troubles she had. "I had a pair of chickens ready for the oven, hanging from the second story back, and somebody in the third story dropped a bottle of hair re'newer on them; and now I'll have to singe them all over again." —A large apartment house in which the "Looking Backward" scheme of Mr. Edward Bellamy is to be tried, is now- being built at Omaha, Nebraska. The cooking will all be done in one kitchen, and it remains to be seen whether the twenty-five families, who are to occupy the house, will make a success of cooperative housekeeping on so large a scale. —The most densely populated state in the union is Massachusetts, which has an average of two hundred and eighty six persons to every square mile. Rhode Island, New Jersey and Connecticut stand next in order, while the southern and western states are very sparsely settled by comparison, and even Pennsylvania has only one hundred and fourteen inhabitants to the square mile. —Half dimes were first coined in October, 1792, and continued at intervals until 1806, then discontinued until 1828. The issue ceased in 1873. The three- cent silver coins, first issued in 1851, ceased hi 1873. The five-cent nickel was authorized in 1806, and has been issued regularly to the present time. In 1858 nickel three-cent pieces and a small number of nickel cents were coined. The two-cent bronze pieces were issued in 1864 and discontinued in 1873. The bronze cents issued in. 1SG4 hare been coined annuallysince. —A unique bill has been introduced in the Maine legislature by Mr, Shaw, of Portland. ' It provides that should one or both eyes of an infant become reddened or inflamed at any time after birth it shall be the duty of the midwife, nurse or person having charge of said infant to report the condition of the eyes at onee to some. legally qualified practitioner of medicine of the city, town or district in which the parents of, the infant reside, and failure to comply with the provisions of ttie act shall be punishable by a fine not to exceed S100 or imprisonment or both. 4SrNERVOUS DEBILITY, Lost Manhood, Failing Memory, Exhausting Drains.
