SAN FKANCISCO, Jan. 2 C Just
(G0 ycar ago tho pony express which
. carried letters from St. Louis to San
establish a transcontinental airplane
mail servlco, and trail-blazing flights
have been made aa far west as Oma
ha. It was a great achievement when
the pony express was started to car
ry the mail to tho young but bust
ling state of California In 1800. Its
inauguration was preceded by tho
publication in a St. Louis paper In
March, of that year, of tho following
"To San Francisco In eight days.
The first carrier of tho Pony Express
will leave the Missouri river on Tues
day, April 3 and will run regularly
weekly thereafter, carrying letter
mall only. Telegraph mail eight day's,
letters ten days to San Francisco.,'
Tho population of San, .Francisco
and other California towns eagerly
welcomed this 'scrvlceThringlng'Uicm
into touch as it did with tho states
from which tho gold hunters and oth
er fortune seeker's had migrated.
Ten riders going each way, with
changed horses every twenty-flvo
miles, brought the pouches of mall
across tho thousand mile wilderness,
Tho pony express, with Its fast rid-
ors, among them "Buffalo Bill" (Col-
onol William F. Cody,) then a young
man, was one of tho most .romantic
features of tho great western country.
Wany were tho adventures these dar
ing ri'dors had. They averaged seven-ty-flvo
miles a day, but often covered
double that distance. "Buffalo .Bill"
onco mado a rldo of 384 miles when
thd messenger who was waiting was
hilled. Often chased hy Indians or
''snipped" by outlaws, the, pony ox
press rldors were exposed to death
at all times, and they braved rain
nnd snow storm, as part of an every
day duty. .
Ono of tjio memorable achieve
ments of tho pony express was the de
livery of Lincoln's inaugural address
in 1SG1, when all tho western coun
try was waiting for tho momentous
news, from tho Capital. The address
was hurried to St. Joseph, Mo., tho
"taking off place" of tho pony ex
press. Wrapped In oil skin nnd put in
saddlo bags tho nddress was started
on its way amid wild cheor's. Fresh
horses waited at overy ton miles, and
tho final ten miles beforo roaching
San Francisco was mado in 31 min
utes, Tho message was enrried by tho
riders n total or 1,950 miles in 1S5
hours, an average of a little moro
thnn ton milts an hour. That was
wonderful in thoso days.
