I.KIfliSTKIi FORD. cate that tho printing and binding facilities of Neve York are superior to those of her sister cities. Boston, with all her boasted bookishness, makes but a poor showing iu comparison. She has a paltry 61 books to her credit. Chicago comes trailing along with 28, while Philadelphia can show only 12. Of oonrse the bnlk of these are works of fiction. II; is interesting, however, to note tbe kind. It may please many a reader to learn that the signs point to a speedy relief from the epidemic of kail yard stories. The canny Scot has had his day. His vowel depleting dialect will soon cease to trouble the types. Its place is to be taken by the novel of adventure—not the old. school adventure, understand, where tbe hero dragged the heroine off to the borderlands of civilization to find a fitting theater for bis aeroics. No, the niaw style, of which Richard Barding Davis may bet said to be the chief exemplar, keeps its hero strictly down to dats, in touch with the stock ticker and telegraph and moves him about in evening dress a good part of the time. Paul Leicester Ford is one of the men who can wrate the new novel as well as Richard Harding Davis, His "Peter Stirling," although three years in print, s still one of the best selling books on he market, and "The Story of an Unold Love" is also one of the popular novels of the day. I suppose he is at work on aDiOther one, although when I asked him about it he resolutely de- lined to saj so. J?or this I blame Hall !aine, who, with his corps of "gentlemanly advance agents, " rather brought he author'* announcement business in- ~tii disrepute, "The Manxman' 1 overdid it. • The man who created "Peter Stirling" has one of tbe best equipped literary workshops to be found on this side of the wator. Hiis home is unassuming enough from the exterior, being one of the many substantial old residences to be found on Brooklyn Heights; but it contains at least one room which cannot be duplicated in any private house in Greater Kew York. This rooai is the library. It is not one of those fancifully decorated "dens" affected by the dilettante pen wielders. It is just what it is meant to be, a literary workshop. A well ordered atici well kept \vurkshop it is too. There is •no litter of chips on the floor. It is a great square room, 60 by 6'0 feet, and liighted by a big skylight. Around the four sides in an unbroken line extend bookcases and racks containing boxes filled with letters, pamphlets and memoranda, all filed and indexed so aa to be readily available wheu needed. In the center of the library are two broad writing tables whose flat tops are heaped wit;li books, manuscripts, proofs and other tools of the author's trade. Why two? Because Paul Leicester Ford is a historisiin as well as a novelist, and, with the training of an expert workman, he likes to keep his tasks separate. But if Mr. For,! refuses to talk about what he isi doing now he is willing to touch on the books he has already produced. He has settled onenincii disputed point—Grover Cleveland was not Sleeplessness, after a day's ride is a »*rtain sign that nature has been overworked. For a woman the bicycle is fun, med icine, butriness and emancipation, ai alended into one. It is estimated that the amonnt o: money spent in England annually on cycling is ^To.000,000. The ball head sbonld bo kept wel lubricated. It will save wear on the balls and races and make steering easier It should always be remembered that a wheel should be stood in a perpendicular position; otherwise the oil will escape from the bearings. A wheelman should never take a cole bath when tired. Tepid water will refresh and invigorate, while cold water will leave injurious results. There are about (350 cycle manufacturers in England, and ic is computed that they are turning out 110 less than 2,G;JO different brands of wheels. An urding to a new law in Kew Jersey, jo.~t.ices are required to accept bicy cles a.s collateral when cyclists are takec into i i>tody for violating the laws. To prevent tlie uneasy feeling caused by slipping on the shiny surface of tbe Eaddle, wash it thoroughly with sole soap and warm water aud dry well. In repairing iiiuer tube tires, if a rider has uo rubber patching, apiece of silk will answer the same purpose. Ic should be cemented in the usual way. A new saddle post is hollow aud has in tbe tube a spring which is suitably supported at the lowereud and provided with means for adjusting the tension at will. Riders who are accustomed to go where there is much wagon traffic should not allow the chain to become loose, as it tends to lessen command of the machine in case it is necessary to slacken speed. When a large party of cyclists are together, it is very necessary to be careful if for any reason you have to dismount, Nev«r get off unexpectedly, as in all probability if yon do the riders close behind will be unable to avoid you and there will be a nasty fall for several of the party. The ball, not the hollow of the foot, is the part to push with. Pedal with a steady, even aud conriiiuono pressure, ro attain wbich good ankle action is essential. This brings into use the powerful runscles of tbe calf aud enables pressure to be brought on the pedal for more than half its revolution. Bicycle Heart. Several well known French cyclists have lately, it is said, been rejected as unfit for military service by reason of hypertrophy and other diseases of the heart. Medical men will be rather surprised that the numbers are so small. There must be few of us who have not seen tho ill effects of overexerdon on a bicycle. The commonest is palpitation and temporary dilatation, but even this is sometimes very difficult to cure. In a case which occurred recently a lady, ordered for a fortnight's change of air after influenza, chose to spend it in bicycling about 50 miles a day. As a result gh& ha= had, ever since that time— now nine months ago—a pulse which on the least exertion rises to 120, though she has not ridden again. That temporary dilatation occurs is enoogh to show the great strain put. upon tha heart, and t is an added danger thsst_the sense ot fatigue iu the limbs is so slight. The rider is thus-robbed of the warning to which he is accustomed to attend and repeats or continues the strain upon the heart. As in other similar cases, the effect is to render that dilatation permanent which was at first but temporary and to cause an increase in the muscle of tlie heart by repeated exertion. Tbe heart produced 3s of large dimensions and of thick walls—a condition which may perhaps give little uneasiness to its owner, but which a medic;il man will view with considerable distrust and apprehension. Weakly .and elderly people cannot be too often roJd that no exercise is more easily abused, though if taken iu sensible measure few are more healthful or enjoyable.—British Medical Journal. NEW T*LOR COSTUMES. w Idea.* Jn Trimming and Oma.nleutfe- tioa For All Sorts of Garment*. [Saccip.l Correspondence.] NEW YORK. May 2.—So many new devices are bt-ins brought forward for the trimming and ornamentation of all sorts of garments that it takes a lively pen to keup track of thatu all. There ia a ueu- kind of braid which is round like a cord, and this is offered in white aud black besides ail the season's colors and lints. The colors are put upon garments of tbe *ame color, but generally in one or two different shades. Tbedesigosare as mauy as there are persons to wear them. That most often -seen is arabesque aud also vermicelli. Some of these cords are wider and .slightly flattened and wired ou the inside. Wheu they are sevrwi on n garment. thi>y can be brought hun striking effects not obtainable without the wiring. It goes without saying that washable goods cannot have wired bruirl. A very rich effect is obtained by having rows of this wired round braid with a row of narrower at each sine in the same color. Some of tbe white and black wired braids are from half to tbree-quartei's of an iuch wide. This is particularly -well adapted to the wide revers and sailor collars. The application of ibis trimming is not confined to any one style. One can have it. up and down, straight around, in zigzags aud in all sorts of floral patterns anil ara- aesques. Black mohair braids in titan or hercules weave are very much liked > and form an elegant aud •unobtrusive DUt rich garniture. On many handsome tailor gowns the only trimming is one or two rows of one of these braids in wide widths. In the sailor and tennis suits where the collar is trimmed with white braid the vest at the opening is trimmed with many rows of very narrow red braid or black and the vest is of white even where the suit itself is white. White duck and canvas and crash are all made for tennis sur. s, the jraid trimming giving them their dis- inction. Belts are made of cloth to match th 3 braid in color. There are woven military belts jnsc now, with great buckles looking more like those een on a harness than things for dainty woman. There are new shaped bats called "cavalry" made of gray braid and trimmed with cords aud gilt acorns, A new touch is given to" some of the tailor capes which makes them belong to the cavalry hats. One of the new ideas is where ribbed silk is cue on the bias and made into narrow ruches not over half an inch wide. They are put on a waist or other garment iu faucy arabesque or loose scroll designs, tbe edge having one row of narrow gold or silver cord. The effect ie very rich and beautiful. Sometimes five or six rows of this trimming are sewed up and down on a vest or blouse, and nothing can surpass the elaborate appearance it gives. This ruffling or rnching, as it may be called, can be purchased ready made in any color. On silk and other fine gowns and separate waists one finds double ruches of A STRONG BLflCKSMITH.

The prestige of some of the larger clubs will enable them to secure a satisfactory entry list, but tbe majority ot tha clabs will be fortunate to come ou) even on tbeir ventures, especially aa they will spend a good deal of money for club prizes. History has shown that, •with ftw exceptions, unattached riders and comparative novices at long distance riding make up the greater part of century runs and clnbs -which win the trophies offered rarely contribute enough money in entry fees to pay for the prizes given.

BriUIe»«H of MetMla Long Subjected to Vibration. i It is a well known and accepted fact j that bicycle* which Jjave seen pretty' constant use for more than two years are liable, for no apparent reaeon, to sudden and unexplained breakage in some vital part. Tbe trouble seenis to come aa ofi«a ^vben tbe machine has been carefn-iy ossd and treated wi(b ali proper wjusiderations as when it has been abased. The rider may be moving easily ove: 1 a smooth surface aud the head snaps, causing a bad spill; or the sud of the crank aii*ft snaps oil under only ordinary pedal pressure, or it inay be tbe seat post-or a rear fork end or some other part that thus mysteriously goes to pieces. The unfortunate cyclist who gets into this sort of a scrape is very apt to talk about some ancient and hidden flaw and is inclined to thanksgiving because the weak spot never gave way at some previous time when the disaster might have been fraught with more serious consequences. A good many mechanics if consulted would talk learnedly of crystallization and thus account for tbe sadden collapse. This Matter of crystallization of metals has in recent years assumed a new phase. There are scientists, whose opinions are universally respected, who are extremely incredulous with regard to the claims of those who associate crystallography with the trittleness of metals which have betm long subjected to vibration. It matters nothing to the cyclist, however, •whether tbe steel in his machine crystallizes ' or not so long M it is a known face that long continued vibration, such as tbe metal in a bicycle receives, is a direct cause of weakness.
