CYCLE AND MOTOR NOTES TWENTY-POUR HOURS' MOTOR RECORD. On Saturday on the new Brookiands motor track near Weybridge Mr. S. F. Edge not only carried out bis intention of driving for twenty- four hours at the rate of sixty miles an hour. bat added another six miles an hour to it. The task he had set himself was completed, so far as mile- age cnt. two and a quarter hours before time. A start was made at six o'clock on Friday even- ing, and at six o'clock on Saturday evening 1.581 miles 1,310 yards had been covered, the track having been traversed 572 times in achieving this record. The car. a six-cyiinder Napier, weighing 3,2771b., ran splendidly, and the run- ning was pretty even on the whole, though at times it reached seventy-two miles an hour. a fino piece of driving and a test of endurance which will require a good deal of ating. The previous record for the twenty-four hours was 1,096 3-16 miles by Messrs. Merz and Clemens, driving alternately at Indianapolis in 1S05, with An average speed of 47 miles an hour. THE MOTOR OMNIBUS NUISANCE. The Faddington Borough Council, having re- cently had many discussions regarding the nuisance caused by motor traffic in the borough, decided to take 'proceedings. A case was laid before Mr. Danckvrerts. K.C.. and in face of the opinion given by him legal proceedings were abandoned. Mr. Dan< kwerts, asked whether the Council, as the local authority, could legally take the matter up on the part of the ratepayers or on its own behalf a'- interested in the keeping op of the rateable value of the property in the borough, replied that the case which gave the widest latitude to the right to litigate at the expense of the rates was" R. v. White," 14, Queen's Bench Division, 358, but he was of opinion that it did not authorise the Council to engage in litigation at the expense of the rates on the ground suggested. The second question asked was whether the proceedings should be against one of the motor omnibus companies, and whether by indictment, injunction, or other- wise, and the answer was that the real difficulty was that the nuisance was not caused so much by the traffic of any particular company or per- ion, as by the conjoint traffic of more than one company or person acting independently of each other. As to what amount of nuisance as re- gards noise, smell, and structural damage would require to be proved and how far it would be necessary to fix any particular vehicle or class of vehicles with responsibility for it. particularly in the case of structural damage, Mr. Danckwerta said that in such cases there was great, if not insuperable, difficulty in undertaking any pro- ceedings, as for a public nuisance. Private in- juries, such as structural damage to houses, did not concern the Borough Council at all. Coun- sel was further of opinion that the only practi- cal course was to urge the Commissioner of Police to exercise more supervision and to bo more free in refusing or revoking licences. The Council now expresses the opinion that as the nuisance appears to be general throughout Lon- don a deputation representative of the whole of the Metropolitan Borough Councils should wait On the Commissioner of Police on the matter. CHANGE-SPEED GEAR FAILURE. The first accident which we have seen attribu- ted to the failure of a change-speed gear is re- corded as having taken place at Clapham, near ekipton, says a writes1 in the Field. It is stated that a local bicyclist was changing speed on a three-speed gear, when the mechanism jammed, .with the result that he was thrown on to his left elbow, which he seriously injured. Such an oc- currence is, of course, just possible. If at the moment when the sun wheel was locked to the axle one of the planet wheels became detached from its spindle, then the hub would be immov- ably connected to the axle, and motion would be arrested unless the change-speed device weffe one of those in which an ordinary free-wheel clutch is employed. An accident from this cause is, we have stated, almost, if not quite, unknown, but it must be remembered that the present year has teen the introduction to the public of a numbes of new gears, and it is very possible that some of these have been somewhat hastily put on to the market before receiving an adequate test of their behaviour on the road. It is also true that these devices often come in for a good deal of rough wear, for riders find themselves changing speed under conditions very different from those firesepbed by the makers, and if a repetition of this treatment should result in the breakage of & tooth in the gear the advantage of having the free-wheel device quite separate might make the difference between safety and an awkward tmash, TRAILERS AND THEIR DANGER.. The danger of using trailers in connection with motor-bicyclee was illustrated at an inquest that lately took place at Sherborne. A motor- bicyclist was taking his wife for a ride in cne of these vehicles when he heard a scraping noise behind, and, looking back. saw that the trailer was overturned and his wife lying in the road. The significant fact is that he was unable to ac- count for its upsetting, unless, he said, he had nerved or the trailer had caught on a stone. This statement points exactly to the nature of the danger. A pedalling bicyclist who draws a. trailer could not possibly, even in descending a bill, need the warning of noise to realise that anything had happened to his passenger. Yet had it not been for this scraping sound the motor-bicyclist would have gone on without even noticing what had happened. And it is especially to be noticed that he had been riding with a trailer for two years. We should be sorry to say that under the management of an unskilled rider a pedal-drawn trailer is alto- gether a safe vehicle, but, except downhill, an experienced rider is not likely to forget his freight to the extent of taking a turn too sharply having regard to the pace at which he is travelling. The labour of riding is enough to make him very sensitive to any variation in his load. The motor-bicyclist has not this safe- guard, and is very apt to misjudge the speed, and this accounts for the numerous trailer acci- dents that have taken place. The higher pace, moreover, renders the consequences of a spill far more serious than with a pedal-driven machine. The fatal attraction of the trailer lies in its cheapness. The contrivances can be picked up very cheaply; they are quickly attached to the bicycle, and take little room to store. Men who own motor bycls, therefore, are strongly tempted to buy trailers, but the investment proves too often a dear one. We have no hesita- tion in agreeing with the severe strictures which the coroner passed on the use of trailers with motor-bicycles. THE AUTOMOBILE ASSOCIATION. The annual meeting of the Automobile Asso- ciation was- held at the Trocadero Restaurant, London. Colonel W. J. Bosworth presided. The committee reported that the increase in member- ship had been most satisfactory, no fewer than 2,555 motorists having joined the association since the last annual meeting. Many new schemes put forward had been taken up with enthusiasm, in particular that concerning the Special Automobile Association policy of insur- ance arranged with Lloyds on terms advantage. ous to the members, and without any profit ac- cruing to the association. Most important and practical work had been done in the display of danger signs and names of villages, which had been, and were being, erected with the co-opera- tion of local councils and Automobile Associa- tion agents. It was hoped that this work would be largely increased during the coming year. The Road Department had grown from a mere handful of cyclist patrols to approximately 100, (between thirty and forty of whom were on the permanent staff. The system by been orga- nised on military lines, sergeants in charge of each main road being responsible for the work under the supervision of the road manager, whose work during the year had entailed travel- ling over 12,000 miles on a motor-car. In addi. tion to this two senior men had for the past few months assisted in linking up every main road throughout the country with local correspon- dents and agents, until the agency system ex- tended from Land's End to John o' Groat's. A DANGEROUS PRACTICE. Attention has recently been drawn to a very Common and dangerous practice which prevails amongst cyclists, writes Mr. Sturmey in Cycling. When travelling in parties, and upon being over- taken by motor-cars and other vehicles, instead of drawing in to their proper side of the road, they open out, so as to allow the oncoming hicHJ to pass through the middle of the group. I have noticed this peculiarity myself, especially when there arc many ladies in the party, and I can only conclude that a very large amount of ignorance exists amongst cyclists as to the recog- nised rules of conduct on the road, Years ago, cycling was first introduced and copapany tiding by clubs was universal, jt was found to be by far the best practice, either when meeting another vehicle or when overtaken, for the near side rider of a pair-i.e.. the one on the left-hand .ide-to quicken his paoe, whilst the off or right- band side rider dropped in behind him. If there Were more than two riding abreast, the third, fourth, and fifth dropped in behind the second in the same way. If this method of riding is under- stood and practised it quickly becomes second bature, and all the riders of a party drop into it automatically, but to scatter all over the road. a! is so frequently done, is dangerous to everyone, for the motorist, trotting horseman, or speed cyclist is never certain of what one or other of the scattering riders may or may not do, and a sadden change of mind on the part of one of them may bring disaster to all concerned.
GOLF. RHOS-ON-SEA COMPETITIONS. SECOND OPEN AMATEUR MEETING. The very unfavourable weather experienced Teoently prevented many intending visi- tors attending this meeting, but though the entries were lower than is usual at this club, the meeting proved a very enjoyable and thoroughly successful one. The links were in fine order, the excessive wet being favourable to them, for in summer they cannot have too much rain. The greens maintained their freshness and verdure, &nd saved the labour entailed in previous yeare in watering them. As usual there wae a great entry in ladies' competitions. It should be stated that the course is singularly popular with ladies, for they enjoy full rights of play with the men. There was a scarcity of caddies, and for this reason it haa been found necessary to hold future meetings during the school children's holidays. The following were the results:— 18-HOLE MEDAL HANDICAP (Limit 18). Tie following qualified D. Peacock 92-15—77 C. Medrington 86-1 —85 A. C. Neil 103-18-85 P. N. G. Holmes 88-set-88 G.

GOLF NOTES. WELSH GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS. An important meeting of the Executive Council of the Welsh Golfing Union was held on Monday evening, with Mr E. U. David in the chair. He first matter was, of course, the selection of a course for this year's champion- ship meeting. It was generally agreed how- evor, that even if the Conway course had suffi- ciently recovered for an event of this import- ance by the date offered-the second week ;n September—that would be quite too late to give the meeting any prospects of success. It was. therefore, finally and definitely settled that the meeting will be held at Porthoawl, commencing on August 22nd, and finishing on August 28th. It was also decidod that there should b« a handicap limit of ten for this meeting.
BOWLS^ LLANDUDNO v. RHYL. On Saturday afternoon the representatives of the Llandudno Bowling Club played represen- tatives of the Rhyl Otub. Great interest was centred in the oompetiuion inasmuch as the visi- tors had been victorious in every game last season. Beautiful weather favoured the event, and, on the whoJe, good bowling was the order of the day. The most excit.ing tfame was that in the singles between Mr J. L. Mayer and Mr J. E. Johnson, who were ten each. On hie final tihryw Mr Mavger got his wood within a few inches of the "jack," but his opponent ousrted him from his position amid ringing cheers. In the singles, the Ithyl team beat Llan- dudno by nine poinir, and by four points in the double. The Llandudno men made a far better show against their opponents than on any other previous occasion. The results were as follows:— RHYL. G. Nutlall 7 W. R. Everest. 11-15 R. Hanlon 6 H.T.Roberts. 7- 2 David Pritehand 7 E. A. Wood 11-15 F. Roberts H W. L. Foster 11-12 J. Pierce Jones 8 W.

MOTOR MARVEL. MR S. F. EDGE FLIES OVER 1581 MILES OF TRACK IN 24 HOURS. All motoring records were pulverised by Mr S. F. Edge, on the Brookiands track at Wey- bndge, when, at the end of 24 hours, on Satur- day, he had driven his car 1581 miies and 1310 yards. It was a wonderful performance, requiring p;uck and endurance, for never during the whole twenty-four hours was Mr Edge's speed iess than a mile a minute, while in his fourteenth hour he covered seventy-two miles. Mr Edge drove a 60 h.p. Napier car, and for austena-nce throughout his rush through the air he relied upon mea.t tabloids, bananas, Oranges, a.nd sticks of chocolate, while draughts of strong coffee kept him awake. Eariy in the morning two punctures occurred. The back tyres were changed three times, and the front tyres once. One change of tyres was effected in the record time of 25 sees. The brief stoppages afforded a welcome relief to Mr Edge, who climed out of the car and lay flat on his bock, taking in great respirations and stretching his tired muscles. In the dark hours of Friday night and Satur- day morning the great track assumed weird shapes. Big flare lights, set 100ft. apart at the top of steep curves, blazed out, and a thousand tiny red and white electric glow-lamps round the base of the track twinkled through the <iar knees. Round and round went Mr Edge in spite of the gloom, and daylight found him atill rushing round, looking, from the grand stand, like a beetle on a big dinner-plate.
TENNIS. A match between ladies' teams representing the Colwyn Bay Club and Penrhos CoJLc-ge, last week, was unfortunately abandoned in conse- quence of rain. Only three games out of eleven were played, the draw being in favour of Col- wyn Bay.
COLWYN BAY v. OLD COLWYN LADIES. Favoured with tolerable weather the content between the Colwyn Bay and Old Oolwyn ladies on Saturday was thoroughly successful. Though the Bayites held a decided advantage, the games were keenly fought, and interest was fully maintained to the end. The result was a victory for Colwyn Bay by seven matches to two, fourteen setts to five, and 102 games to 52.
RE-INSTATEMENT OF MR ROBERT S. SIEVIER. The announcement that Mr Robert S. Sievier has been re-instated by the stewards of the Jockey Club was widely commented upon at Newmarket, on Monday, and the feeling gene- rally is one of satisfaction with the official step.

The subject of this week's portrait, Mr Howel Jones, of Llandudno, is an enthusiastic cricketer. For the pa&t few 3carti he has played for the Llandudno club, and last eeafion turned out for Carnarvonshire against Fjirutshire at Moet.yn Park. He handles a useful bat, and bowls with considerable success at times. In his younger days Mr Jones was a prominent figure on the Wrexham cricket field, and when he eventually took up his abode in London he played regu- Judy for Hiampstead. The Llandudno club owe much to his initikative and onetgot-ic efforts in matters of administration, for, apart from his excellent work in tihe field, Mr Jones haJJ rendered yeoman service as a member of the oommiitiee, and horn, tteasurer of his club.

CRICKET. COUNTY CRICKET IN NORTH WALES. FLINTSHIRE v. DENBIGHSHIRE. Before stumps ATexe dirawm on Wednesday. Flintshire commenced their first innings and on the loss of four wickets the score wa6 very promising for them. To-day week, however, some of the later wickets fell with rather sud- den rapidity, and at the close of the innings the total rune numbered 146 towards which Howell Jon«s contributed 54, J. lnglis 28, and D. Ravenscroft 22. The wicket was in better condition than the day previous, but the attendance was exceedingly meagre, not- withstanding the weather was gloriously fine. The Flintshire batsmen were all out about noon, and at luncheon time nix Denbighshire batemeoi had been disposed of in the second innings. Appearances at three o'clock were somewhat in favour of a draw, but Denbigh- shire had hopes they might be able to achieve a victor}-. Shortly before tnxee o'clock the scores st ood: DENBIGHSHIRE.

As a social function., the match was in part 4 failure, the attendance being exceedingly poor, and the local lack of interest in such a first rate match has been the subject of com- ment. The victory of Denbighshire was decisive and undoubtedly the best team won.
RYDAL MOUNT (COLWYN BAY) v. NORMAL COLLEGE (BANGOR). The return match between the above was played on the fplendidly appointed pitch which the Rydalians possess at Colwyn Bay. Gieat interest was taken in the event- by the pupia and the outside public. Normal had yet to meet with defeat. and it was the Rydalians' intention to administer it. Representative teams were placed in the field. Rydal opened with Mr Bowes and James, and they batted steadily until 21 was reached, when the former was caught by J- T. Williams off Turner. Simpson next partnered James, and this pair treated the visitors to a game of leather hunt- ing such as they had not experienced for some c time. Bowlers -vere continually changed but all to no purpose, the score going up steadi'y. When 105 was reached the homesters declared, one wicket only having fallen. James had 61 to his credit- which included one 6, three 4'5, and three 3'8. Simpson carried his bat out for 28. Normal opened badly. Mr Osborn taking Mr Williams' wicket with the last ball of the first over- Wickets fell quickly five fallmg for eight. Turner livened matters up -■ little, but his success was short lived, as he only added 18. The last four wickets fell for one, the innings closing for 28. The bowling of the homesters was excellent. Mr Osborn took six wickets for 11, Lancaster one for 14 and Simpson three for one. The bowling of the latter has been very consistent this season- Scores: RYDAL MOUNT. Mr Bowes c J. T.

DINGLEWOOD (COLWYN BAY) v. RYDAL MOUNT 2nd XI. (COLWYN BAY). Played on the Dinglewood ground on Satur- day. The homesters batted first and scored 31, Mr Rowlands being. responsible for 24. (This included three successive hits for 4, one 5, and one 6. In all. eight "ducks" fell to their lot. Melling was in deadly form with the lea- the-r. and took eight wickets fo-r ten runs. It was unfortunate that he should have had a five knocked off him at the latter end of the games but he clean bowled six men- Wilh four wiokets down Rydal passed their oppon- ents' score, the innings finally closing for 75.

WELSH MUTTON v. CANTERBURY LAMB. AMUSING INCIDENT IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS. The light, side of question time in the House of Commons, on Monday, was represented by mutton. Mr Reee, one of the most active humorists in the House, askod the Chairman of the Kitchen Committee, whether he would con- sider the propriety of substituting Welsh mutton for Canterbury lamb. The Welsh members cheered Sir Alfred Jaoo- by as he got up to relply, with the enormous magnifying glass in his hand which he always uses on these occasions. But their cheers sub- sided when he gravely announced that he was not prepared to effect the substitution. Welsh mutton, he was informed, was to be obtained botween October and March, during which time he would be pleased to supply it to the House. Up jumped a Scottish member at once. Scot- tish sheep with biack faces provided the best mutton. Would Sir Alfred Jacoby supply this met as well? ■Not to be outdone, an Irish member elo- quently asserted the superiority of Irish mut- ton, and the Chairman of the Kitchen Commit- tee solemnly assured the House that the claims of all gheep should reoeive his careful considera- tion.

As in the ease of perhaps has greatest book, "The Garden of Allah," its soeme is laid on the fringe of the Sahara, and the first chapters promise the n-icw, exciting and romantic development. A charm- ing oolleotion of "Pictures for Children," sub- jects easeartdally of interest to the younger generation, but certainly not without their oharms for grown-ups. is reproduced in the original colours of the paintings wi..i very happy effects.

Already they eeem to have out-dis4anced all their piredecessctrs, and it seems well within the bounds of possibility that flight may be a fact accomplished in our own time. An arti- cle on tbø "Beautiful Women of the Second Empire" contains many stories and anecdotes chairaoteirisitic of the great ladies of the Court of Napoleon Ill. and the Empress Eugenie. It ia illufta-ated with many portraits- "The White Lady of ttip Lytteltons." the story of the strange vision that preceded the death of a certain Lord Lyttelton; "Opulent July," a nature history of the montli and other arti- cles and many excellent short stories—among them the first of a new series dealing with the grown-up adventures of a former favourite, the Lady Noggig--ma-ke the July "Pearson's a number of no account to be m'seed.

HOW COUNTRY PEOPLE READ ADVERTISEMENTS. •TT1IIE PALL MALL GAZETTE," in an article X on "Country Literature," sonee time back, said"For the moet part readers in town (London) and suburbs only gl&noe at exciting portions of papers, and then cast them aside. Readers in the villages read every line from the first column to the last, from the title to the printer's address. The local papeie are ploughed steadily through, just as the horsea plough the fields, and every furrow of type oonscientiouslj followed from end to end, advertisements and all. The brewer's, the grocer's, the draper's, the ironmonger's advertisements (market town trades- men), which have been there month after month,, are all read, and th slightest change immediate* ly noted. If there were any advertisement of books suitable to their taste it would be read at exactly the same manner. So it would be in a daily paper whenever it got to them. But in advertising for country people one fact must be steadily borne in mind—that they are slow to aot^ that is, the advertisement to produce any rOwN must be pqra"QP-t.
