The L. A. \V. will meet in Louisville in 1896. Tho time limit for century riding has been reduced from JO to 14 hours. Tires inflated until perfectly hard are less liable to slip than those partly inflated. The pneumatic tiro was invented in 1845, bat we have known of it only since 1891. A bicycle track over the structure of New York's "L" roads is the latest suggestion of the, cyclists. J. A. Pallister has ridden 84 century runs during tho last year. His total mileage for the year was 9,800 miles. Mayor Wurster of Brooklyn has declared himself as being in favor of a return cycle path along the Coney laland boulevard. The club century banner has been won by the Lincoln Cycling club of Chicago, whose members rode 604 centuries during 1895. There will be one road race less this year than heretofore, as T. N. Linsoott, thu promoter of the road race of that name, has dropped out. Previous to 1898, when all bicycles were- heavy and cumbersome as compared with the machines .of today, brakes were universally used. Cyclists in Cleveland have formed 'a Cyclists' federation. The federation was organized in an feffort to procure radical reforms in the street sprinkling abuse. Frankie Nelson, who won the six day race in Madison Square Garden, has ia- Bned a challenge, open to any woman in the world, ftt any distance, for any amount. There is, or there used to be, a window in an old chnroh in Bucks, England, representing a man riding on what very much resembles tho bicycle of today. The date. of the window was 1640. WELL KNOWN WHEELMEN. Harry Wheeler will be among the American riders who will compete in cycle races abroad this year. Zimmerman has an offer of $600 a week to ride in Paris, which he is seriously considering at present. Tom Cooper will again be u member of bis cUd team this season. Cooper fin- «fthed second in the individual oham- piqnship competition of 1895: . C. M. Murphy and George Banker will soon race in Franca Thin will be the third • trip Banker has made across the big pond in a search for fame and gold. Tho national assembly voted to Chairman Gideon of the racing .board of the L. A. W. the $668 which remained after all the expenses of the board had been paid. Zimmerman won six races in Melbourne, five in Brisbane, four in Newcastle and two each in Sydney and Adelaide, out of a total of about 36 in .Australia. Aside from Parson, whom he considers a wonder, Zimmy states that the Australians are not yet up to form. __ .__ _ A Cycle Fire Engine. The French have applied the idea of the bicycle to ia fire engine. The machine was designed by.M. Sohoedelin, and tho four riders who propel it to the scene of the fire' employ the same power to force water through the hose, a simple change in the gearing, transferring the power from the wheels to a rotary force pump, attached 'to/the machine. The two^ arms '.'running back from the rear axle -are, let' down when the. machine ia -ready- to work "tit- a, .fire and serve as •stanchions to: hold the machine firm. At tbe!.same tiwe'they raise the rear wheels from the ground, permitting them to rev'olya without moving the machinevahead, 1 Gear wheels are then thrown Into action with the-rear hubs and «erve as the power to work a rotary pump hung in the rear framing. — Bioy- olette. .

It took two heats to decide the 2:40 trot, can-led over from Tuesday. Dr. Wilkes was tho favorite and had the pole in the first heat, but ho went in the air and Avalanche, wlio had not won n heat, went out and captured first -place.
