CYCLING NEWS & GOSSIP. X One of the most successful racing men in the United States, is Albert Champion, who, in paced races, seems to be invincible. Out of twenty-two races in which he entered, no less than nineteen were in his favour. He has also inproved upon the American hour record by covering 41 miles 364 yards. Major Taylor has now joined the circuit so matters may possibly change. It would be as well if cyclists adopted lamps showing a red light in the rear. Hitherto this has not been necessary as wheelmen were the fastest users of the road, but now that automobilism is making such headway, and are faster than the wheelmen, the order of things changeth, and it is the wheelmen who should take the precaution. When taking over a motor bicycle the purchaser should take particular notice of the class of tyre fitted. What should not be overlooked, and is of the utmost importance, is the imprint, denoting the work the tyre is intended for. Tandem tyres are quite unsuitable for motors, and they will not give satisfaction. For this reason it is a wise plan to see that they are really motor tyres. In order that the rider cannot err in this particular, the lyunlop Co. stamp all their tyres on the out- side, so that the rider can see at a glance the par- ticular work they are called upon to perform. « A grand performance has been accomplished on a motor bicycle by E. H. Arnott. Nothing less than from Land's End to John o'Groats, complet- ing the distance in the fast time of 2 days 17 hrs. 45 minutes, inclusive of all stoppages. It speaks well for the capabilities of the motor bicycle that it accomplished the first stage of the journey, ;)24 miles, without having to make a single adjust- ment, other than occasional attention to the belt. Near Warrington the road developed into a terribly rough state, and for many miles the rider and machine had an exceedingly lin-ely time. At Killiecrankie the longest hill was encountered, being a continuous rise for about twenty miles, while the stiffest to ascend, and probably the most dangerous hill on the road, is near Berriedale thereafter it is plain sailing to John o'Groats. The rider covered the KS8 miles of trying roads, including all stoppages, in 2 days 17 hours and 45 minutes. Truly a very creditable performance. 9 I There is no doubt but that riders of cycles can be the most versatile of athletes. Champions of other forms of sport take up cycling with zest and without detriment to their status, and even cycling champions have competed in other branches of athletics with success, or without incommoding themselves in the slightest degree. Many famous cyclists are international footballers, while more than one champion runner has been known to compete in cycle races with success. E. E. Parlby, the famous sprinter, before turning his attention to the path—he still holds the quarter- mile amateur record—was also a great sprinter at the hundred yards or quarter." Tommy Sum- mersgill was an international footballer of renown, and has likewise achieved the distinguished honour of winning a world's cycling champion- ship. Then, in the rowing world, C. B. Lawes (now Sir Charles Lawes), who won the "Diamond" at Henley so far back as l8(io, took up cycling, and notwithstanding his age—over fifty—created new records. Another famous oarsman, the Rev. Sidney Swann, has in his fortieth year, just ridden from Carlisle to London, a distance of over 300 miles in twenty-four hours. These are onlv to name a few who have turned their attention from other branches of sport to that of cycling with unequivocal success. It is remarkable how very few machines enamelled in colours one sees nowadays. During the boom of 1891), the majority of cycles ridden by society people were enamelled in colours, some of the shades being very beautiful and delicate, and at the time it seemed likely that the black enamelled machines would become comparatively rare. There were, however, various objections to the use of coloured enamels greater initial expense, the difficulty of producing enamels which would stand stoving at a sufficiently high temper- ature without changing in tint, difficulty in neatly touching up scratched portions of the cycle, etc.— all of which probably have had something to do with the present general use of black enamels on cycles. Tyres, if ridden in a slack condition, have a tendency to s:de-slip. Especially is this accent- uated when negotiating wet tram lines. There is a danger, too, of the tyres catching in the lines and probably rolling off the rim. This would be a serious matter. When tyres are pumped hard, they not only present less risk of skidding, but they wear for a much longer period. The Dunlop tyre will stand any amount of air pressure, and together with the excellent non-slipping tread, reduces the chance of slipping to a minimum. The hour record is undoubtedly the most popular cf all recognized records, and this year it has had ceaseless attention from Tom Linton, the Welshman, and T. Hobl, the German, they being the best cracks for this distance at present all the track. nobl was the first to establish new world's figures this season, covering over forty miles in the hour. Then Linton, twice in eight days, improved on the previous best by bringing the mileage up to over forty-four miles, and was followed a little later by Robl, who covered over forty-live. Now Linton has given another display of grand riding in an hour match with Bonhours, covering 73 kilometres 350 metres, or close on forty-six miles, an improvement of nearly half a mile on Kohl's figures. From the evidence given by a witness at an inquest on a cyclist who had met with a fatal accident whilst descending Hartford Bank, Northumberland, it would appear that it was high time the local authorities took steps to improve the road surface at the particular spot where the catastrophy occurred. At a sharp turn in the hill, the roadway was in such a rutty state that the unfortunate rider was thrown from his cycle against the stone coping of a bridge, thus meeting his death. An eye-witness who lived close bv the scene of the accident, stated that during the last eight years, thirteen persons had been thrown pver the bridge into the river, and on one day alone, no less than six injured persons were brought into his house. From all accounts the spot is a regular death trap. x Quite frequently little boys and girls may be seen astride machines for which they were never intended. The primary explanation as to why the youngsters career around on bicycles much too large for them, is the saving of money. Parents dismiss the idea of discomfort with the reflection that the youngsters will soon be able to stretch the fall-size bicycles in comfort, thus saving the cost of new machines. It is painful to look at these youngsters in their contortions on a machine too large for them, rocking and swaying from one side to the other like a ship in a rolling sea. The risk of overstraining is undoubtedly considerable, but children can hardly be expected to appreciate this; the effects will probably be felt in after life. The parents are unmistakably to blame. It is quite as preposterous to give a youngster a 22-inch or 24-inch frame, as to give it a hat several sizes too large, or to give it a pair of its parents boots. There is really very little excuse for this mistaken policy of parents, because there are many juvenile models of dainty cycles, exact imitations of the higher grades, which can be had at a moderate price. Mounted on one of these a child will thoroughly enjoy it and look graceful. And, when the young rider has got too big for his machine, it can easily fall to a younger scion of the family, or be easily sold for the benefit of other children. The asinine effects of the law regulating motor cars, has recently been demonstrated at Guildford. It is a strange fact that the magistrates of this borough seem to be the most prejudiced against motors, in any shape or form, of any unpaid the couatey. Mr. Guv H. Howard Tripn -7 was driving a motor cycle to which a trailer was attached. Would it be believed that he wa3 sum- moned under Article 4 of the ruies made by the Local Government Board in pursuance of the Locomotive Highways Act of 1896, in that he was "driving a traction engine at a rate of over six miles an hour? Now Article 4 relates to light engines, and cannot relate to a light basket-chair on wheels, as when the Act was passed trailers had not been thought of. The lengths to which the law is being strained, especially by the Surrey magistrates, is shown in this case, in which the defendent was fined £ 3 for this terrible offence. Had it been a drunken driver in charge of a horse and trap he would have got off with a fine of per- haps half a crown. It is to be hoped the unlucky motorist will lodge an appeal, and the case taken to a higher and more unprejudiced court. The desire of every wheelman is to have what is termed a "lively" tyre, that is, a tyre that decreases the labour of propulsion, and thus adds to the enjoyment of riding. Such a tyre is made from the special fabric used in all tyres manu- factured by the Dunlop Tyre Company. The Company's fabric is made of strands of finest quality cotton, a material of great strength and durability and yet possessing the highly essential quality of pliability. It is desirable for ensuring liveliness in a tyre, that its cover should not be lined with a harsh material, and with this object in view, the fabric used by the Dunlop Company, instead of being woven like canvas or similar materials, consists of two series of parallel threads laid diagonally across the cover, one series crossing the other at right angles. This is the secret of a speedy tyre. Amongst the large body of wheelmen there are a number who harbour the impression that cycle manufacturers are willing to reduce their prices at this season of the year, owing to slackness of trade, and that consequently autumn is the best time to purchase. Amongst ordinary wheel-folk such an erroneous idea is pardonable, but cycle dealers should know better. In the Cyclist an instance is given where a cycle dealer ordered from a well-known firm, tico machines for 1903, on the stipulation that no further improvements should be introduced in 1903, and that he should be granted a special low price in view of it being autumn. The firm in question did not comply with his request. Now and again, cycle manu- facturers who have some out-of-date stock to dispose of will reduce their prices, but good up-to-date stock will always command the list price. Zimmerman's racing tour is over, and one looks in vain for any achievement of his worth record ing. Why he should have returned to the race path after so many years retirement, and when he held a reputation second to none, it is difficult to conceive! We suppose an attractive agree- ment was offered him by some sport promoter who considered his name would prove a good draw. The question arises-has it ? The Dunlop tyre for 1903 is a grand specimen of tyre manufacture. It is no longer made by hand but vulcanised instead. In lieu of the fabric being solutioned to the rubber as hitherto, it under- goes a process of vulcanisation in the special machine-fully patented-so that the cover and tread are formed into a compact whole. Thus the weak point in the hand made tyre-disintegration of canvas and rubber-is completely overcome. The action of the railway companies in this country, in refusing to carry petrol, benzine, naptha, or other intlammable liquid, except upon an undertaking from the sender to pay full com- pensation for any accident to their servants or damage to their property that might occur, is causing considerable commotion amongst the motor trade and those directly interested in it. A large firm in petrol, has declared against signing such an undertaking under any consideration, and have circularised their customers on the subject. They state It is a kind of indirect and practically unlimited risk, against which it is impossible to insure it shifts to the senders the liability which fairly belongs to the railway companies as carriers, and upon the basis of which all their charges have been arranged." Why have the railway companies come to such a decision ? Would it not have been a more progressive movement to have contrived to institute some safe system of transit ? It is bound to be required sooner or later. Mr. Scott Montagu, M.P. has approached Mr, Gerald Balfour, President of the Board of Trade, on the subject, and has received a reply stating that if he will furnish particulars of the new regulations proposed by the railway companies, with reference to the carrying of petrol, etc., making the senders personally responsible for damage that might occur, he would consider whether the board of trade can usefully approach the railway companies in the matter.

YANKEE JOTTINGS. SATISFIED ALL ROUND. A story is told of the early days of Michigan, showing the easy methods of administering justice in those times. A farmer named BLivison walked three miles to secure a warrant for the arrest of a neigh- bour named Meaclian for assault and battery; and to save the constable a six-mile trip, the defendant walked with the plaintiff. They encountered the justice just leaving his house with a gun on his shoulder, and Davison halted with, Squire, I want a warrant for this man for striking me." "I'm in an awful hurry; come to-morrow," said the squire. "So am I in a hurry," said Davison; I'm going to have a pig-killing to-morrow." "Meachain, did you hit )iiin asked the justice. Yes." "Davison, did you strike first ?" "Xo," Ifeaclii.iii, had you rather work for Davi- son three days than go to gaol ?" I guess so." Will that satisfy you, Davison?" Yes." "Then," said the justice, "make tracks Tol" home and don t bother me another minute. 1 ve just heard of an old bear and three CLibe. in the woods, and I'm going to have some bear meat it it upset the supreme bench of Michi- gan.' t D WANTED MOKE.

CLIPPINGS FROM BOOKS. WOOING SLEEP. f The late Professor Blackie was once staying at Tynemouth. Before retiring to rest he informed his host that he had two requests to make: first, that he would allow his bedroom door to stand wide open; and second, that those in the house were not to be alarmed should they hear him singing in the middle of the night, for when he could not fall asleep lie wooed Somnus with a song. Accordingly, at about one o'clock in the morning the old professor was heard singing in strong, cheery tones, "Scots wha hae wi' Wallace bled," like a veritable Highlander on the war-path. And again in the stillness of the night he sang out, Green grow the rushes O." The last lines were sung in more subdued tones, and sleep came to him ere he finished bis song. STRATEGIC. It is told of a well-known actor, now dead, that he would never take any physic, and his medical adviser was often obliged to resort to some stratagem to impose a dose on him. There is a play in which the hero is sen- tenced in prison to drink a cup of poison. The actor was playing the part one night, and had given directions for the cup to be filled with port, but what was his horror when lie came to drink it to find it contained a dose of senna. To throw it away was out of the question, as he had to turn the goblet upside down to show his persecutors he had drained every drop of it. He drank the medicine with the slowness of a poisoned martyr, but he never forgave his medical man, as was proved at his death, for he died without paying his doctor's bill. WITH A HUMOROUS TURN. One might suppose that will-making was anything but a merry occupation, and yet the drollery of the wills that some eccentric old fellows have left behind could hardly be sur- passed. Dean Swift could not have concocted a more bitter joke than that of the testator who, after citing the obligations he was under to a par- ticular friend, bequeathed to him, at the bottom of the first page of his will, ten thou- sand-pounds, of course, thought the delighted legatee; but, on turning the leaf, the bequest was discovered to be ten thousand thanks Just as odd was the codicil of the death- stricken humorist who left to certain of his dear relatives "as many acres of land as shall be found equal to the area enclosed by the track of the centre of the oscillation of the earth in a revolution round the sun, supposing the mean distance of the sun to be 21,600 semi- diameters of the earth from it." This was a century ago; and as the problem could not be satisfactorily worked out, the legatees were kept at a mean distance from the property all their lives. A very neat reproach was conveyed in the will of an uncle who bequeathed eleven silver spoons to his nephew, with the remark, "If I have not left him the dozen he knows the reason." The young scapegrace, it appeared, bad stolen the twelfth spoon some time before. FROM A SLIGHT CAUSE. One night the late Sir B. W. Richardson went to a ball with his wife after he had been busy in his laboratory many hours. A young lady with whom he was about to dance let a little eau de cologne fall on his forehead by blowing it through a small tube. The cold produced was intense, and pinching the skin he found that it was benumbed. "Thank you," said the doctor, and seized upon the fact. On returning to the laboratory next day, he began to evaporate from the skin light fluids like ether, and found what he was looking for. Then he constructed instruments that made sprays for the light liquids and devised the little apparatus worked by bellows which afterwards was known as the ether spray apparatus. The doctor first experimented on his forearm and found lie could freeze the whole of it; a lady then had two of her teeth extracted pain- lessly; a young man went through an opera- tion without sensation; and the use of the epray soon became universal. WE'RE GLAD WE'RE NOT THERE. The people of Varna, on the coast of the Blaok Sea, in Bulgaria, have a singular custom which they observe at the feast of Epiphany, which takes place on January 6th. The clergy, both Greeks and Bulgarians, accompanied by an immense crowd, go to the seashore, parrying with them a wooden cross. The cross is thrown by the clergy into the sea, and thereupon the strongest swimmers jump in after it. The best swimmer gets it, of course, and brings it in triumph to shore. The Varna people have a still more singular salt-water custom on the same day. After dark at night, all the newly-married men in the town are conducted, with bands of music and singing, to the shore, and made to take three successive plunges into the icy water. They are then conducted home, where their brides, accompanied by their relations and friends, have been awaiting them in state. After thie there is feasting and merry-making. These sdngular customs are believed to be derived from a Pagan origin. NOT FORBIDDEN. The WilliamPenn, an American steamer com- mander by Captain John Codman, was )the first transport flying a foreign flag which was char- tered by the French Government during the Crimean War. She went aground on one occasion on Nagara Point, and the Pasha of the Dardanelles came off to the ship, and tendering his assist- ance. Being under the impression that the Orientals were forbidden by the Prophet to partake of wrine, that luxury was excluded from the cabin'table. "Think of tmy astonishment," said Captain Codmac, "at a gentle hint from the Pasha, as to champagne* It was, of course, produced. Upon my remarking that it had not been offered before IOn account of regard to what I supposed to be his religious scruples, he replied with an air of aperfect sincerity- "I Wine is forbidden by the prophet; not Champagne. Champagne did not exist in his day; how, them, could he have forbidden it? Allah is iiideedtgreat. Pass the bottle. ALL THE DISTANCE. One may be exicused for feeling a little joy when the ma" who goes out of his way to make a rude remark in order to display his wit receives a rebuke Jthat is as courteous as it is at the same time effec tive. The retort given \by a certain learned scientist must have been considerably more amusing to the onlookers than it, was to the learned gentle- man's antagonist. It happened at di nner that one of the guests began to deride philosophy, and went on rudely to express the opinion that philosopher was but another way of spe lling fool. "What is your opinion, Professor?" he asked. CI Is there much distance between them ? The professor, with a polite bow to his vis-d- vis, responded gravelly— "Sometimes only the width of a table."

THE HOUSEHOLD. HELPFUL CHILDREN. My text. is the old adage, Train up a cliilfl in the way he should go, and when lie is old he will never depart from it." Which way our children 'shall go, and how to train them aright, are questions which have troubled and perplexed mothers ever since the first baby opened its eyes on this unfriendly world. One mother says: I love my little onel so dearly, that I cannot do enough for him! I must spend all my time for him to show my love and make him return my affection." So saying, from earliest ill fallcy his every wish is granted, his every whim indulged. The little one is amused all day, picked up and petted when the unaccustomed feet fail to: hold up the plump little frame, and waited upon morning, noon, and night. The weary mother creeps over the floor to pick up the blocks, balls, and dolls, that the busy hands have thrown to every corner of the room; finally, the tiued hoy is rocked to sleep and laid in the dainty bpd to rest. Another mother (is she not the wiser ?) says: "My whole life is bound up with my boy, and it is my duty to make him, as :far las I can, a noble, helpful, manly boy." Early, very early, before habit has made the way hard, the little one is laid in his snug crib with kisses on his !soft cheek and rosy lips, then, in the darkened room, left to take his nap alone, while the mother softly goes about her work within hearing of the ttiby voice. Perhaps at the first, trial of this method the happy little laugh changes to a low cry which soon swells into a prolonged wail; but, if the mother can only wait and be patient, the little one will find that he is not to be taken up and will drop off into a sound sleep. Cruel, is it? Ah, no, for it only requires a day or two of firmness, and ever after baby goes quietly to sleep, leaving many leisure hours for mamma to spend with the rest of the family, or busy hours at long neglected sewing. Of course, sickly children must not come under this rule. WHKN FURNISHING THE KITCHEN, cover the floor with oilcloth; it is far clearet in wear than the ordinary cocoannt, malting. When choosing oilcloth, select that which has been in stock longest, as it will wear better owing to the paint becoming hard and durable. It is an error to scrub oilcloth. When cleaning, it may be wiped with a soft house-flannel and warm water; after it is quite dry, it should he polished with beeswax and turpentine. The nicest kind of dresser for a kitchen is of stained and varnished wood, for it can he cleaned by wiping, like the floor, and be polished con- stantly at very little trouble by Ihe cook her- self. The white paint in kitchens looks nice at first, but is very soon dirty. SIIRAIINS. When a sprain occurs, lose no time in attend- ing to it, however trivial it, may appear. Ascertain whether there has been a fracture or dislocation. If so, send for a surgeon [I. ..soon as possible and keep perfectly quiet until he arrives. If there is no fracture or displacement of bones, but only excessive swelling about the joint, bathe the injured member in as hot water as possible. Bathe for fifteen or thirty minutes, renewing the water occasiona lly and applying with a sponge. Then wrap the injured member in strips of flannel saturated with hot water, and cover with dry cloths. Do not use the sprained member until recovered. Complete rest is the only cure for sprain. TO WHITEN REAL LACE. Iron the larce slightly, fold it very flat, and gew it in a piece of clean white linen. Steep in olive oil for twenty-four hours, and after- wards boil the packet in soap and water for twenty minutes. Rinse in plenty of warm water, lastly in water which is very slightly starched. Then take the lace out of its cover- ing and dry it stretched on a board, covered with soft linen. The lace must be carefully arranged on the board and pinned out to dry. GINGER WINE. Put these ingredients together cold and 118 boiling is necessary in the whole of the process of making. To every gallon of cold water add three pounds and a quarter of sugar, one ounce and a half of bruised ginger, two lemons, two Seville oranges, and one sweet, orange. Pare the oranges and lemons very thinly. Squeeze all the fruit. Put the juice and peel into the barrel, also one ounce of split raisins to every gallon. Do not quite fill the cask at first; stir constantly for two .or three days till the sugar is dissolved. Next add a little yeast. Do not stir again, but in about a week fill the cask and cork it up. This will be ready to bottle in three or four months, TO CLEAN CHINCHILLA FUR. Put the fur 0" to a firlU 'deal table, skin downwards, and rub it with bran, moistened with hot water. Rub with a flannel till the fur is quite dry then, with a piece of book muslin, apply dry bran in the same way. Afterwards put some magnesia into a muslin bag, and well rub into the fur. It is an improvement to stretch the skin. To accom- plish this, first sponge the hide with a mixture of salt and water, taking care not to wet the fur; put it, fur downwards, on to a table, and with the hand stretch it; as tight as possible. Keep in the desired position by nailing it with tin tacks on to the table. TO RENOVATE BLACK SATIN. Take equal quantities of spirits of wine and warm water, sponge the satin on the right side with this, working down the material, and not across it. While still damp, iron on the wrong side. Another plan is to scour the satin with the following mixture: Four ounces each of honey and soft soap, mixed with an egg and a wineglassful of gin. Apply with a stiff brush. When the satin appears clean, rinse in cold water, press between clean clothes to dry, or hang up to drain. Iron whilst still damp, and dry before folding. BURNS AND SCALDS. Exclude the air as quickly as possible by applying a thick paste of whiting and sweet oil, or a linen rag dipped in a mixture of oil and lime and water. Cover the latter with a sheet of cotton wadding split; in two, the outer skin of the wadding will exclude the air. The oil and lime water should be frequently applied during the day, without removing the linen rag; should the burn be very severe, so that the skin is raised into a blister, it must be snipped with a pair of sharp scissors, the water very gently pressed out, and a linen rag well saturated iwitli oil and and lirue water applied. TO POLISH LINOLEUM, there is nothing better than the following-. Shred equal quantities of beeswax and yellow soap into a gallipot, pour over sufficient tur- pentine to cover. Stand the jar on 1,118 stove, stir it constantly till the mixture is dissolved. Apply a little of this with a lfannel, and polish with cloths in the usual way. CARE OF THE UMBRELLA. Drain a wet umbrella by standing Jit handle down. If put the other way the dampness remains in the centre, where all the water col- lects and very soon rots the covering. CLEANING FINE CHINA WARE. In washing fine china and gluss clean the dishes with a piece of bread-crust instead of a knife, which will scratch delicate ware. TO KEEP CHEESE FRESH. A cloth wet in vinegar and wrung out as dry as possible, and then wrapped around cheese which has been cut, will keep the cheese fresh and free from mould. After wrapping the cloth about the cheese put it in a paper bag in a cool place.
