The Trail Relay Itace
The splendid puns made in the relay
race from Chicago to Seattle last week
and which was made with nearly three
hours to spare from the schedule time,
indicates that the Yellowstone Trail
route to the Pacific is to become the
most popular of the overland routes
to the coast.
The unfortunate accident by which
one man lost his life near Seattle, is
a solemn warning- against high speed
ing on the highways. That the acci
dent was not really on the trail prop
er or in official connection with the
race, does not mitigate the warning of
danger in fast driving or racing on
the roads

That Lucky Seren
Out of some sixty guesses
made by as many individuals at
the Mittelstaedt store, as to the
time of the arrival of the Chicago
letter at Seattle in the Yellow
stone trail relay race, Miss Lizzie
Sawatke, who is employed by
the W. M. Thomas family, came
the nearest to guessing the pre
cise time in which the trip was
made—putting it 97 hours
7 minutes and 7 seconds. The
actual time was 97 hours and 8
minutes. It is believed that Ed.
Emanuel had advised her in re
gard to that "lucky seven,'"after
he had gone into a trance that
lasted 7 hours, 7 minutes and 7
seconds, and all the young lady
had to do was to add the 90 to
these figures and she had a lead
cinch grip on the right numbers
