Under the auspices of the Illinois
League of American Wheelmen there
will be run next week a relay race

horses, and l he hoys in the nice will
bear a message from Gov. Altgeld to
Gov. Peck. The fastest riders in the
citirs along the route of the race will
lie selected to carry the message.
The weather has not been overly en
couraging for the past month or so,
but it mav be good enough to allow
of fast time. Rut the boys will go if
it is raining so hard that they cannot
stav indoors. There is nothing a
bike rider will not do to show that
his machine is the finest invention of
this or any other age and relay races
of that character are his stronghold.
The first rider will leave Spring
field at 1(1 o'clock on Friday morning.
