Tbe rain began. , f aQlng Just a tbe ridar reached the plantation, and then there came--a terrific wind atorm. which blew for an hoar and waa followed by th iieavy rain. 'After th- break Tast. which even surpassed the previous affair, the riders mounted la the rain and began th rttnrn trip, a loig, dreary, wet and muddy ride. It waa impossible to travel the road, and the levee was followed throughout the entire .route. 'Just below Chalmette the men were compelled to dismount, for riding was dangerous, and then for some three . miles they pushed their muddy wheels along. There was but one fairly good stirtch of road in tbe. entire forty-five miles. uS that was the bort sbell . driveway to the i National cemetery. Even x her th' mud waa an Inch thick and a th wheel went flying through the slvsh tb slop waa sent high In the air. Tbe riders were sight a and the wheela were coated. After numerous trials they reached tbe - city and their respective home about 0 o'clock la tbe evening. Tbe ride could hardly be called a pleasant one. but , it - was an example as to exactly bow- much a rider can stand, and what the local-, rider are able to do on muddy and miserable roads. BICYCLE- INSC1RAXCE, The sign seem not nnpropltloaa . that a practically aew and apechno form of Insurance is soon to become established within the United States, a It ha already la Great Britain, where the National Cycle and Motor Car Insurance Company, Limited, haa achieved a separata existence, with distinct functiona. There la. Indeed, a strong raison d'etre for exclusive . and exhaustive - bicycle Insurance. Let it tie calculated on the mathematical basis of probabilities, and it will be readily apparent that among the Innumerable bicycle now la existence, many must be lost, stolen or damaged by accident or fire so many that the percentage Is much higher thsn tbe casual thinker would determine.- There la not a representative wheelman or wbeerwoman, it may confidently ha declared, who would not be willing to pay a reasonable premium for protection against any or all ot such disaster. Unless, therefore, our standard tnsnrance companies speedily effect arrangements satisfactory to the wheeling fraternity, it ia to be expected - that aa 1 Independent company, devoted solely to the lnteratts of bicycle in-sarancs, will soon be organised and established. It Is a great need, and proper safeguards could easily be adopted to obviate possible abuse of the advantage such a cork pasy would offer. . Let as look for .the enterprise,, and let-aa It : wheat it appear.: .; i. ?s ?

It wool', perhaps, be too mncb. to assert that thla decrease la universally noticeable, but there la a remak-able factor in connection with the changed situation which demands attention. Indeed, wherever and whenever vital statistics evince more satisfactory results, tt Is the evident duty of all thl"fct"g men and women logically to seek out the aew relation of cause and effect. ; It baa been noted la various localities where the decrease la consumption baa become evident auch decrease datea approximately from the introduction of .the bicycle and it general adoption by tne communities under discussion. In M isaacbusetts, for instance, in recording the change in statistics, tbe Massachusetts board of health reported th. to tbe bicycle Is largely dua the notable and growings victory over this ancient malady. : ft' la confidently . believed that a Judicious and regular use of the bicycle will wage successful battle against Incipient consumption or consumptive diathesis, and that the wheel will become generally recognised aa one of the nve: effective preventive for the major part of "the ula that flesh is heir to," as regards disease and physical distress. -' f THB NATIONAL- CTOLB SHOW. : Agents - snd riders and prospect! re cyclists seeking tor the latest to alt that pertains to the up-to-date wheel, will not miss the great eastern national . cycle abow at tbe Grand Central Palace la New York city, Feb. 4 to 13. if they ' can possibly get there. Costing .the manufacturers close to a million dollars, th annual exhibition i will thl year contain more bicycle and accessories and novel a t-tachmenta than were ever before gathered for public inspection. - : It waa no idle boast of Secretary'' Franks, of the Cycle Board of Trade. . under whose auspice- theshow-, will b held, when be declared that the records of previous exhibitions will be broken la every particular. The book of the board bear out thla statement, showing a remarkable excess over the an-noer of exhibitors of previous years. By way of illustrating this point, it may be aald that the coming -abow will be nearly three times as large as that held last year in Madison Square GSTden. .
