MADE FAST TIME Grant and Skinner go at Three Minute Gait. THE BIO RELAY RACE transport and Peru Racers Distinguish Themselves. Losausport wheelmen wore interasted iu the rolny roml race o£ 200 miles ;i^:iinst tin; Western record. Two cnick riders from tills city took part in Ilio struggle awilnst time, carrying tho mte^isP from LoRanspovt to Delphi on (lie way around the circle of Indiana towns. Charles Grant, the winner of The Journal mednls, nud Frank Skinner, tho well-known time nunlhllutor, were the Logausport participants in (lie relay ride. The day was a hot one for long distance speeding, The measago was sent out of Frankfort at 0:30, and to Kokomo was borne In fast time by Morris and Coulter. Furilmn and Tate of Kokomo took np the chase'against'the watch at tlitit point, and were In turn relieved at Peru at 1:19 by Miller and Spnrgeon, wlio whirled over the eighteen miles to thLs city In 01 minutes, being allowed to rest here while Ihe Logansport racers iHR'do the distance from this city to Delphi, roughly estimated at 2S mile*. This part of tlie trip was made in good time by the men from the City of Bridges, their time being reported at 1 hour and 28 minutes. This Is at a rate of a mile In 3:08, of 19 milos an hour. The opinion of the managers of the relay race was that if the pace set us far as Delphi was kept up the rest of tlie way to Lafayette, Crawfordsvllle, Lebanon and Frankfort, the finishing point, tho record would be cut several minutes. The record for 200 miles is sixteen hours. If the flnlsn was made near the record figures, the last riders would pull Into Frankfort about 1:30 this mornlnj?. An effort to reach Frankfort by telephone this morning, to learn tlie result of the big race was not successful, the line being out of order since the storm Monday night. The recent rains have made the breaking of the record a difficult task, but It Is hop°J that the Job was accomplished yesterday. ' BAND CONCERT TONIGHT.

One of these is a tunnel near Cumberland Gap, Te,nn., which the Louisville £ Nashville railroad Is having made ou one of its branch lines extending into that heretofore uot-blessed- wlth-raiiroad country. It is an immense piece of work, aud will be superintended by Mr. Thomas Reagan, who is well aud favorably known Jn Wabash as the present superintendent of the work now being prosecuted at Uie Big 'Four bluffs. Tlie other is a $1,000,000 slice of a ,<J9,000,000 contract which contemplates tlie building of a reservoir to Supply Boston with drinking water. • The Immensity of this work is de! »crilwd in the following fuJI and interesting manner by the Boston Globe: "Flans for the new ?19,000,000 reservoir which is to supply Boston with drinking water have been completed. The origin of the supply Is to be a great dam In the Nashua valley. Thf work is one of the greatest in .the world's history. The great Jane, which will be formed by the,dam. will be the Kreatest artificial reservoir in the world, [.and wjll have a capacity of 03.008,000,000 gallons or almost twice tnat of New York's great new Crotou reservoir, wHli Its 32,000,000,000 gallons. "It will .have a length of eight and onc-hal-C mliles and its greatest width .will be two miles. It will cover six and one-half square ni'.les and will have nil average depth of 40 feet. Beneath Its'surf ace will be the sites of tMe greater part of three villages, Including four cotton mills, four churches, sis school houses, nearly 250 dwellings nnd the homos of nearly 2.000 people. The greatest depth of tliii= island sea will be 120 feet, and beneath, its surface"^!! repose the rnadlXKl of the Centra) Massachusetts railroad for a distance of six find one-half milft«. Over 19 miU'S of roads and (own-ways will be, Hooded and a crist mill ami a saw mill will be swallowed up.

Two tmmetwt Iron bridges on stone abatements are to be constructed- to span portions of be constructed throughout of granite, and will be a massive wall. North oT the dam is a depression."3n the wall of the valley, and nt that point a dike composed of earth stripped from the votley, will be built. It will be divided by a rocky ledge which crops out at one point and will l>e over 9,000 feet in length. Southerly from the dam Is another depression demanding a sccoflfl dike. "The water will' be conducted tn basius at Southboro by gravitation, through an aqueduct of a capacity of 300,000.000 gallons dally, with an interior size of 31 feet 4 Inches wide by 10 feet 5 inches high. The level of the water in the reservoir will be 385 feet above tide level, and at the gate chamber where Ihe water enters the tunnoJ tlie aqueduct will be 274 feet above high tide. For two miles tlte aqueduct will run in a tunnel. "The estimate for the construction fli the work is $19,000,000.

The most remarkable, perhaps, were General Harrison's speeches during his tour to tlie Pacific coast.

His thoughts, as vrcsil as his language wore always new nari. worth remembering.
