The Chicago, Burlington & Quihcy ttailroad has just accomplished the greatest feat the world has ever known for long-ilistahce fast runhihg. It Was inad<; in a race against death to carry Henry J. Mayham of New York to the bedside of his dying soh in Denver. The distance from Chicago to fcen* f, 25 miles, was covef-ed in ex* actly 1,069 minutes* actual running time. This is only a small fraction less than one mile a minute for the longest continuous run ever made by any railroad in the .world. It was a run made in the ordinary course of business. No special preparation whatever had been contemplated for the trip. In exactly forty- four minutes from the time .the order for the train was received the 'throttle of the engine was pulled open and the train glided out of the Union Depot on a race which surprised railroad men th,e world over. Th< engine which took the train on the first run out of Chicago to Galesburg had just come in from Aurora pulling a regular passenger train. No time was spent in cleaning up, but )t was quickly turned around, attached to the special train and manned by the same engineer who had brought It to Chicago. Not more than a half dozen officials or employes of the road knew the trip was to be made. This fact is the most important in the history of the great feat, as it demonstrates the superb physical condition Of the road and the perfect management which enables such remarkable time to te maintained for more than a thousand miles. The time made by the record-breaking train is as follows, including all stops: From Chicago To Galesburg . To Burlington To Pacific Jet.. To Lincoln ... To Hastings .. To McCook ... To Denver .... Miles. Time. 163 2h. 56m. 206 3h. 48m. 9h. 5m. lOh. llm. 12h. 3m. 14h. 15m. 482 541 638 770 ...... 1,025 ISh. 53m. Average time, including stops, 54.3 miles per hour. Average time, excluding stops, 57.54 miles per hour. The first stop made by the train after leaving Chicago was at Sixteenth street for supplies, where four minutes were consumed. At Aurora the traveling engineer took one minute to look the engine over £.nd the train ran without a stop until Mendota was reached, when three minutes more were consumed for the same purpose. A total of twenty- one stops was made between Chicago nnd Denver, consuming in a,ll sixty- four minutes. The longest stop was made at Red Oak, la., where engines were changed on account of a hot truck. At this point the fastest run of the trip was made. Soon after leaving Creston it was discovered that a box on one of the engine trucks was heating, but in spite of this fact the run of thirty-six miles was made in thirty-four minutes. • At Villisca a fresh engine was substituted and the run to Red Oak, fifteen miles, was made in as many minutes. Over long stretches of road between McCook and Denver the train made more than a mile a minute for distances of forty to sixty miles. Six engineers took the train from Chicago to Denver, making an average of 170 .miles to each run. Mr. Mayham left Now York Sunday morning at 10 o'clock on Pennsylvania Limited in response to repeated messages that his son, William B. Mayham, was lying at the point of death at Denver. At Port Wayne Mr. Mayham became convinced that the ordinary trains would not take him to the. bedside of -his son In time to close hie eyes in death, and he promptly wired the Chicago, BuvUngUm & Qwtncy road to have in readiness a special train to carry him through to Denver in the shortest possible time. The Pennsylvania arrived' in Chicago ten minutes late and thirty minutes making necessary preparations for the were consumed by Mr. Mayham in journey. The train left the Union Depot at exactly 10 o'clock Monday morning. The Burlington road had agreed to make the trip to Denver "inside of twenty- four hours." The feat was accomplished In three minutes less than nineteen hours, or more than five hours under the stipulated time, CliUdrctn'b B Children should be encouraged to write letters.
