President Roosevelt's horseback ride
from Washington to Warrenton, Vs., and
back, a distance of ninety-eight miles. In
seventeen hours. Is considered a notably
good one for a man of 80 years. It was not
so much a try for a record as a reply to
army officers who criticised the president's
order requiring officers to cover fifty miles
In three days.
There are on record many rides by army
officers, which overshadows that of Presi
dent Roosevelt. Five years ago, last July,
General Miles rode horseback from Fort
Reno to Fort Bill, ninety miles away, In
nine hours and ten minutes. Ths trip was
mads to prove that General Miles at the
age of retirement, 64 years, was still m
good physical condition. On the trip the
general had nine mounts. Captain Bayres
of the Eighth cavalry made the trip with
him. Forty minutes after reaching Fort
8111, General Miles reviewed ' the troops
there, and showed no signs of being tired.
Here are a few of the notable distance
rides by American horsemen, mostly army
men, taken at random from the Ust'oom
plled by Lieutenant Colonel Theodore
In 1ST several single couriers rode from
Thornburg'a "rat hole" with news of that
officer's danger to General Merrltt's
column, a distance of 170 miles, vrtilch each
courier covered In leas than twenty-four
Colonel Lawton rode from Red C)jud
agency, Nebraska, to Sidney Station. Ne
braska, with dispatches for General Crook
In twenty-six hours. The distance was 128
miles. That was In 1876.
Captain Fountain's feevf.
In 1881, Captain Fountain of the Eighth
cavalry rode eighty-four miles In eight
hours and 110 miles in twenty-three hours.

dispatches, covered 1MT miles In twenty
Rides of from 120 to 1R) miles within the
day and the night, saya Colonel Dodge,
have been mads repeatedly by ordinary
United States troop horses, when not spe
cially prepared for the work, and over very
bad ground, and, as a rule, the animals
have not been Injured by the test.
Thlrty-slx years ago Colonel Mackensls
rode his oommand Into Mexico after Lpan
and Kickapoo Indians, defeated them In a
sharp fight, and returned across tbs border,
making 146 miles and winning a battle, ail
within twenty-eight hours. The following
year Colonel Mackensls rode into Mexico
again, this tlms In pursuit of a band 01
horse thieves, and covered eighty-five miles
In fifteen hours. In averaging these rides
of regiment or troops, the fact must not
be lost sight of that a large body of horse
men, carrying equipments and in column
formation cannot begin to get over tne
ground so rapidly as a group of three or
four riders without luggage of any sort.

was Is) miles. . twenty of it through deep
sand. But the horses were in such good
oondition that, after one day's rest, the
troopers started back and made the return
trip at the rate of alxty miles a day.
Lieutenant Wood, with a troop 01 tne
same regiment, did seventy miles In twelve
hours In 187. and Captain Dodgs. that same
year, rode his troop eighty miles in sixteen

and O of ths Eighth cavairy, ion r on
Tatea on a December midnight in 18M and
reached Bitting Bull's camp, forty-five mllea
away, at 7:10 o'clock In the morning. Then
the troopers dispersed the Indians in a
skirmish, rescued the survivors of ths band
which had killed Bitting Bull, scouted the
country a dletAnce of ten mile beyond, and
then rode to camp at Oak creek, covering,
all told, a distance of eighty-five mllea, be
sides f IghUng the Indians, in fourteen hours.
General Merritt, In 1Si. with four troops
of cavalry, and hampered by a battalion of
infantry In wagona, rode 170 miles to the
relief of Payne in sixty-six ana one-nan
hours and reached his destination In prime
oondition and ready to go at once Into a

General Guy V. Henry rode 106 miles In
S3 hours with four' troops in 1SS0. The
actual riding time was twenty-two hours.
There were between S00 and 400 men in that
column, and with ths exception of one horse
that tell dead at the end of the Journey
troopers and animals were fit to take the
return ride after a day's rest.
There are numerous cases on record of
entire regiments of cavalry making long
continuous marches at the rate of alxty
miles a day. Colonel Henry, an expert on
distance riding, used to say that after a
month's hardening of men and horses by
Callv rides of from fifteen to twenty miles
a day, a cavalry command could easily
cover from fifty to sixty miles a day for
an indefinite period, and oould, in an emer
gency, do 100 miles without hardship.
For the purpose of seasoning tbs men and
their mounts. General Miles once organised
a systsm of pursuits on ths plains. A raid
Ing party, so-called, consisting of about
twenty men, was sent out from a fort or
camp, and eighteen hours later an equal
number of troopers were sent out to catch
One of the rules was that the fugitives
should rest six hours after riding eighteen
and to halt again for twelve hours, after
riding twelve. Pursuers could ride "go
as you please," but were ordered not to tn
Jure their horses by too hard a pace. This
was. In one sense only, play. That is,
there waa no spur of compulsion to save
life or turn the tide of a battle. Neverthe
less, the results were creditable to men and
animals. One of these pursuits began en
September IT, W7, when Lieutenant Scott
of the Sixth oavalry. with twenty-five
troopers, rode away from Fort Stanton as
a fleeing band of raiders. Eighteen hours
later twenty-seven pursuers, under Lieu
tenant Pershing, set out on the trail, and
captured the first detachment after rid
Ing 130 miles In thlrty-slx hours. On
another pursuit twenty-two men covered
171 miles In forty-two hours.
Colonel Dodgs seems to take the ability
of the United States cavalrymen to spend
many consecutive hours in the saddle and
to ride many miles without a halt as a
matter et course. He cites most of his
cases principally to show the remarkable
endurance of the very ordinary sort of
horses the government provides for Its
A description of one hard ride in pur
suit of a deserting first sergeant, who had
stolen his company's funds. Is given la
detail to show how the most was got out of
the animals with the minimum risk of over
taxing them. "We left the poet at Fort
Reno, L T.. at IM p. sV said Captain
A. B. Wood of ths Fourth cavalry, who
was la command of the absconding
geant's eight pursuers. "The day Was hot;

first twenty-five mllea, which distance we
had covered by p. m. This brought us
to Knngflaher creek, where we' halted for
one hour unsaddled, got something to eat,
let the horse, roll and grass, then groomed
their backs and legs, saddled and started
again at T p. m.
"We walked for thirty minutes, trotted
fifty minutes and then dismounted and
rested ten minutes; mounted snd went at
the trot for fifty minutes, dismounted, and
walked ten minutes. This rotation of fifty
minute trotting periods and ten-minute
rests was kept up until midnight, when
there waa a twenty-minute halt, followed
by the same rotation until 4: JO a. m., when
there waa a halt for one hour's sleep. An
other grooming of tegs and backs followed
the sleep and then the grind was resumed."
Tne ISO-Mile Ride Completed. .
And so it went, until after thirty-one
hours, all told, the troopers reached Ar
kansas City, 1M ml.es from camp. What
happened to the dishonest deserter does
not appear In the record
"At that time," continued Captain Wood,
'our mounts were purchased In Missouri
and Kansas, The horse I rode waa 11 years
old; the others were a lit tie younger. All
the horses except one were In good condi
tion on our return. That one had been
made unserviceable by bad riding. The
trooper who had him was not a very good
horseman and rode too heavily forward. I
tried to correct him. but It is Impossible

ride I ever had."
Borne of the famous rides by westerners
not in the army occurred in Ban Fran
cisco, whsre N. H. Mo wry. with relays of
many horses, did W0 miles in fourteen
hours on a race track In 1868. Ten years
before that J. Powers made ISO miles In
six . hours and forty-three minutes, and
there is a tradition that a rider named
Anderson covered -1,304 miles In ninety
Among the pony express riders, F. X.
Aubrey undoubtedly held the record. On a
wager of tl.OOO he undertook to ride from
Sante Fe to Independence, Missouri, a dis
tance of 800 miles, inside of six days. He
did It in five days and nineteen hours. He
had a dosen fresh horses waiting for htm
at different points along the line, and cov
ered most of the distance, at a gallop.
Jim Moore rode a mall route from Mid
way station to Juleaburg, a distance of
140 mil. a It waa his regular custom to
maks the round trip of 280 miles once a
wesk. On one occasion ths other rider on
that route, was 111. and to keep th sche
dule unimpaired, Moore not only did dou
ble duty, but in less than half ths time
he usually took for his wsek's work. He
rode the 180 miles In twenty-two hours.
President Lincoln's first Inaugural mas
sage waa carried from St. Joseph, Mo., to
Sacramento, Oal., a distance of 1,980 miles.
in seven days and sevsnteen hours. Ths
news of the firing on Fort Bumtsr was
carried from Bt Joseph to Denver, about
675 mllea. In sixty-nine hours, the riders
riding night and day, stopping only to
Changs ponies, the time allowance for
which diversion was about two minutea.
That was in the days of ths old "pony
sxpress," some of the riders of which
made records that still stand. Jack
Keetly, for Instance, has a record of 140
miles, without rest or sleep, in thirty-one
hours and Jim Moor bas a record of 380
miles in fourteen hours and forty-six sec
onds. Bill James had a 60-mlle route and
made the round trip, 120 miles, in twelve
hours, and seldom came In more than a
few seconds off schedule time. The sche
dule of the old "pony express" called for
something like 260 miles every twenty hour
and the riders usually mads It.
RARE TRIBUTE TO LOVED ONE
Leavf from s Tender Knloary Penned
hr the Late J. terllns;
Writing of Arbor lodge and Its founder
In the February Issue of Country Life In
America, Paul Morton, son of the great
"I know of nothing that better illustrates
my father's private character than an edi
torial which he wrote and published - in the
Conservative a short time before the untime
ly death of my brother Carl. The fact that
both the author and the two loved ones of
whom he so tenderly wrote have passed to
the Great Beyond Imparts to this beauti
ful passage a moat exquisite pathos:
" Tt was a bright, balmy morning in
April more than a quarter 6f a century
ago. The sun was nursing ths young grass
into verdure, and ths prairie was Just be
ginning to put off its winter coat of sombre
colorings. Tranquil skies and 'morning
mists were redolent at Arbor Lodge of com
ing resurrection of the foliage and flowers
that died the autumn before. All about the
cottage home there waa. hope and peace;
and everywhere the signs ot woman's
watchful love and tidy care, when, sud
denly, toned with affectionate solioltude,
rang outi "Carl, Carl I" but bo answer
came. Downstairs, upstairs, at the barn,
even in the well, everywhere, the mother's
voice called anxiously, again and again.
But the silence, menacing and frightening,
was unbroken by an answer from the lost
boy. At last, however, he was found be
hind the smoke house, busily digging in
the ground with a small spads, though only
t years of age, and be said: "I'm too busy
to talk. I'm planting an orchard," and
sure enough, he had sst out a tiny seedling
apple tree, a small oottonwood and a little
Ths delighted mother clasped htm In
her arms, kissed him, and said: "This
orchard must not be destroyed."
"And so now
I hear the muffled tramp of years ,
Coins stealing up the slopes of Time;
They bear a train of smiles and tears
Of burning hopes and dreams sublime.
" The child's orchard Is mors thsn thirty
years of age. The cotton wood Is a giant
now, and Its vibrant foliage talks, summer
after summer, in the evening breese with
human-like voice, and tells Its life story to
the graceful, swaying elm near by, while
the gnarled and scrubby little apple tree,
shaped, aa to Its head, like a despondent
toadstool, stands in dual shade, and bears
small sweet apples, year after year, In all
humility. . But that orchard must not bs
destroyed. It was estab lihed by tbs young
est tree planter who ever planted in this
tree planter's state, and for his sake and
the memory ot the sweet soul who nursed
and loved him. It lives and grows, one Cot

But O, for the touch of a vanished hand,
And the sound of a voice that is still.
- Tne memories mat live ana bloom In
trees, that whisper of the loved and lost
in summer leaves, are as Imperishable as
the seasons of the year immortal as the

ambitious to equal the record of Fred
Marriott at Armond beach a couple of
years ago. Mounted on a cigar shaped
devil wagon, Marriott flew over the smooth
sand at twenty-eight and one-fifth seconds
for the mile, or better then two miles a
minute. At the same contest Demogeot up
held the honor of France by covering two
miles In fifty-eight and four-fifths seconds,
and Clifford Earp proved the endurance of
England by knocking off 100 miles at an
average of forty-five seconds to the mile.
That some handy going could be accom
plished on a plain country road was the
contention of Walter Christie, the Ameri
can, and he made good on Long Island last
year with a 120-mlle-an-hour clip.

Everything that goes fast needs some
thing faster to catch it While the racing
car la at present unapproachable, the com
mon scorcher may be overhauled by a mo
torcycle, which is the torpedo boat de
stroyer of 'the highway. A streak of dust,
a pop-pop-pop like a rapid fire gun, and
the majesty of the law on two wheels cap
tures ths four-wheeled violator of the
speed limit. At Morris park on last elec
tion day, Walter Goerke won the ten-mile
national championship for motorcycles In
ten minutes end forty-five seconds.
Leg power still has Its records. Aided
by the suction of an express train, behind
which he rode' a bicycle on a board track,
Murphy pedalled his celebrated mile in
fifty-four and three-fifths seconds. Robert
A. WeiUvour has dons' his mile In 1:06V4
and K. Caldwell has gruelled fifty miles In
a tick less than an hour.
Most machines that go fast ars compli
cated and costly, but any country boy can
make an Ice yacht skim ths froxen lake
or river at an unparalleled speed. No motor
yet devised has driven anything on wheels
as rapidly aa ths wind drives tbs ics yacht
over its glassy course. There are no bear
ings to get hot, and If there Is any friction
on ths stsel skates ths Ice keeps them
cool. On the frcaen BTirewbeury river two
years Ago ths yaot Drub went over a short
measured course at the rate of a mile in
twenty-four seconds, or 160 miles an hour.
In order to exceed this, man may have to
launch himself In a cyclone or get shot
out of high power rifle. Ioe yachts often
make two miles In a minute, and quite
outdistance slowpoks express trains on the
bank of the Hudson river.

Athletics can go some on cinder tracks,

he swept his steel shod feet over a mile

amount to about four miles an hour. .
