itevs of ixjeuest. the LKiirixiNc; spkcial spiced FUOM ClIICAtiO'TO ATLANTA. Ran It In 10 Hours, 57 3Iinutes. Brought the Imposition Edition of the Chicago Herald-liroke All Pro vloust Ilecords. The triurnihant culmination of one of the finest t-trukes of cnttrprino ever undertaken ly an American newspaper was witnesHod at tho union depot at fi:3Q o'clock last evening, when the Chicago Herald's fast special, just fiixteen hours and fifty-seven minutes out of Chicago, pulled under the shed. The moment the dazzling headlight of engine 240, Western and Atlantic road, hove in sight the multitude of representative citizens, city officials, newsboys and every class of people that bad gathered inside the depot, . sent np a terrific shout, and the Fifth " Regiment band struck the inspiring strains of "Dixie." WELCOME THE HERALD MEN. The exposition directors and the leading citizens quickly boarded the car and went into the dining car, where they met and congratulated Mr. Robert Ansley, the business manager of the Herald, and Mr. John J. Flinn, of the editorial staff of the Herald, the able special writer of the Herald, , who prepared the article about Atlanta and the exposition, which made up the Southern edition of the Herald. MR. HARMAN HAPPI. Mr. Charley Harman, the live gen eral passenger agent of the Western and Atlantic, who personally conduct ed the special from Chattanooga, was on hand all aglow with smiles, shaking hands with everybody. "One hundred and thirty-eight miles in one hundred and sixty-five minutes, with two stops," was all he had to say to the enthusiastic greetings that he received from every side. After the general reception in tho parlor car was over, the Chicago party was taken in hand by the exposition directors and escorted to the Aragon hotel. A RAILROAD SENSATION. The marvelously quick run from Chicago to Atlanta was the sensation of the hour in railroad circles. No such time had ever been made before. During the World's Fair the announce ments made in the advertisements that the vestibuled fair specials would cover the distance in twenty-four hours was greeted with incredulity. Nobody believed it, and as a matter of fact, it was a rare occurrence that the dis tance was covered . in shorter time than twenty-seven hours. To make the run in sixteen hours was a feat unparalleled in tho railroad world. It was at the very least eight " hours shorter than any known time between the two cities. It marked a new era in fast traveling, and it was meet that the rapid run should be made between Chicago and Atlanta, the two most enterprising and pro gressive cities in the country. mi I. . . . mere were iuacy rauroaa men who am nos believe that the run could be made In any thing like the tlms proposed. They predicted that the train would Ret into Atlanta about midnight, but tliey were beautitully disap pointed. It Is a fact deserving of special men tion that the run made over tha Western and Atlantic Road, one of Atlanta's lines, wa made in as quick time as was made on any other line between Chicago and Atlanta. Mr. Harman made it a point to cover the distance In lUh tiling fashion, and if the train had reached Chattanooga on schedule time, it would have been put into the depot in this city without tho loss of a single moment. Ho had orderad the riijht of way cleared for the special, and it came through without a hitch. The train was scheduled for Chattanooga at 3:05, and on the main line, awaiting the coming of the train, was engine 240, one of the smartest locomotives in the Houth. It is an engine that Charley Harrett has covered a mile in less than fifty-eight seconds with, and is one of the most graceful movers in the world. On it was Billy Harris, an emrineer who knows every rrosstie between Atlanta and flhflt.tjinnntTn on .Tirrirwnr nrkn rnf every wrinkle out of a mover, an engineer who can ride his box like Snapper oncts rode the horses always to win. He was sitting there waitini for Bob Stallings, that conduc tor who is known all OTer the Houth, to wave him out, while Mr. Stallings, with watch in hand, was watching for the coming train to turn tho curve a half mile away. Hon. Charles Harman, the general passenger agent of the .-oad, was beside the track fusing because the train was late, and a dozen yardmen were present to do the work allotted to them. Jui-t five minutes after 4 o'clock the train roiled in. A second later the engine was uncoupled and No. 240 was swung in line. In two min utes every axle had been greased, every wheel had heen sounded and tho train was moving. Mr. Flinn and Mr. Anslnv rind aliakpn linn ,1a with a number of gentlemen and had. been told a dozen times or moro that the feat was one of the most remarkable they had ever heard of. "Is there anything In our way?" asked Mr. Ansley, glancing from the face of his watch into the face of Mr. Hnrman. "Not a thing." replied Mr. Harman. "This .rain has the right of way overevervthlng." "And what's 1 he distance?" asked lUr. Flinn, g'.uncing at the time table. "One hundred and thirty-eight miles," was the answer. i "How long will it take us?" asked Mr. Ana ley. ''Less than three hours," wai the answer. "We will make two stops only, and we will put you in Atlanta in less than three hours." Threa minutes before 7 o'clock the train came into Atlanta, having covered the dis tance in two hours and fifty minutes, includ ing the two stops of about four minutes each and the slow-up at Howells and the slow pace, within the city. It was a run of 138 ml'es in 170 minutos, in cluding two stop, and ai the best running the train did from the tirns it left Chicago until it reached Atlanta. The entire time, includingthe stops, changes and so forth, w sixteen hours and twenty seven minutes, as figured by Mr. Stone and Mr, Harman. nu.... I.. C"T .!... t .l.I..l.

"Electrio lights are playing sad hav oo with shade trees in towns and vil lages," says a philosopher. "The effect is to make the leaves armear as thouch ' tney had been subject to a blighting ! breath. Arboriculturists say that the light keeps the trees awake, and con sequently they are tired to death. Trees need sleep and rest as well as any other things in nature, and the lack of this rest causes the leaves to droop. This solution is probably cor rect, as it has been noted that similar trees in the neighborhood of those affected, but removed from the expos ure of the illumination, retain their strength and color." This should be looked into. If a remedy is not pro vided for before another spring, the trees near electrio lights will probably leave.

The Rise of the Buckwheat Cake n Autograph Fiends Fifty Years Ago- It ia related of Mendelssohn, at a publio dinner, at which ladies were present, and where he was surrounded by a chorus of aggressive women clamoring for his autograph, that he allowed himself to be victimized with good nature until finally a fleshy mat ron of mature years handed him her card. Whether with malice prepense or not, it is not stated, but the compo ser wrote upon the card the musio and words from Haydn's "Creation:" "And Qod created great whales." This personal pleasantry brought the autograph-hunting to an end, and Mendelssohn was allowed to go on with his dinner. Ex, Karnak is the moet marvelous ruin on the Nile.

It is known lo cally as "the bottomless pit." Stones of large size have been thrown into it with a hope that it would be heard to strike the bottom after a while, but, acoording to reports, there were no reverberating sounds borne back to the ear by which its enormous depth could be guaged.
