night his special train Is speeding through
Kentucky Into Tennessee, with th bsttl
field around Chattanooga as Its final
southern goal.

but the welcome extended to him was
not limited to those places. Everywhers
along tha line during daylight aad long
after darkness the people gathered at tba
stations to cheer him aa he speeded along.
Th storm that swelled the rivers to the
dsnger point had passed away and be
saw a sons ot three states la bright sun
light. He saw n stretch of fifty miles of
the Allegheny mountains from the cab of
an engine nnd most of It was down grade
at n speed that thrilled. The train had
lost two hour at Portage by reason ot a
wreck to the wertward of that point, and
when the special got a clear track again
an attempt waa made to win back the time
that had been lost.
Slaty Miles aa Hoar.
At times th swaying engine was run
ning sixty miles an hour and when tha
prince left the cab he was almost aa
grimy aa th engineer. When not re
sponding to th reception h waa busy
sightseeing and studying a large map,
which had been aet up In hla car. He
asked many questions ss to th industries
of Pennsylvania and Ohio and mad ex
tended note on th margin of th map.

of the dsy, and It was lata that h re
tired to rest befor going to the evening

Th prtnee left th dining table to ac
knowledge the cheers of n small crowd .
that had gathered about a water tank out
side of Xenia. They numbered less thsa
fifty, but when the prince heard that they
wanted to see him he obligingly left the
table and went to th rear platform. He
bowed to the little crowd nnd then waved
hi napkin, which ha had carried out with
blm. .
