Denmark has a wide tire law requiring all vehicles to be equipped with four inch tires. Very little is said of weight this season. The average machine is considerably heavier thau was the favorite styla of mount of JS95. In Australia the bicycle is rapidly taking the place of the horse. Even sheep drovers are using machines -while pursuing their business. As an instance of the popularity of cycling in the navy it is stated that it would be difficult to find a man-of-war that has uot at least one bicycle OB it. Never allow the handle bar adjustment to work loose. Looseness at thig point will spoil the bar and is also liable to become the causa of a serious fall. Many people forget to think of the home journey when starting out sor energetically, and miles seem interminable when returning with feelings of weariness. "Biding a bicycle is a most effective cure for melancholia. The change of scene diverts the attention and the brain receives a splendid tonic by the temporary change, " says a physician. Tandems are sold about as fast aa they can be made, and earlier predictions that the two seated machine would be extremely popular this season have thus far been abundantly corroborated. Where lorid effects in costumes, both for men and women, will end it is impossible to predict. Tailors have certain standard patterns which are within the limits of good taste, and only freaks will seek to go beyond the real.ly handsome costumes being worn by those who aim to at once secure comfort and look well. .'--••• The high gear man ia happy until he sees a higher gear than his hi use.

Madrid, May 1C.—All the members o£ the Spanish cabinet have resigned. Senor Sasasta last night communicated the situation to the queen regent, who will entrust him with the task of forming a new ministry. It is officially declared that the new ministry, when formed, will continue to prosecute the Vi'Ar to the utmost. London, May 16.—A special from Madrid, via Paris, says that a report is current that the American cruiser Tale, loaded with munitions, has been captured by a Spanish cruiser. The Yale cleared from St. Thomas at 5 p. m. yesterday and sailed west. Curacoa, May 16.—The Spanish cruisers Maria Teresa, Vlzcaya, .Almirante Oquendo and Cristobal Colon, and tae torpedo boat destroyers Plut.ona.nd T«r- ror, which arrived off the bar Saturday morning, are still here. Only the Maria Teresa and Vizc-aya were admitted to the port. They have bought coal, provisions and medicines, and will remain in port. The other warships are outside waiting.

Our srun- boats did not follow them in. Commander Lilly saw that the Spanish ruse was to draw them in under the guns of the heavy batteries, where the Spanish artillery officers could plot out the exact ranse with their telanvetres and pot them. Commander Lilly had not been mistaken. As his ships came ».breast of the Santa Clara battery the big guns opened and fired thirteen shells at a distance of about five miles. The range was badly judged as more thaa half the shelss overshot the mark and others fell short, swrne as much aa a mile. Lilly Signals to Stand Off. >s soon as the battery opened Commander Lilly signalled and his fleet stood off shore. Captain McKenzle. on the bridge of the Vicksburg. watched the fall of the shells, but he considered it useless to waste ammunition ac that distance. He appeased the desire of the men. however, by lettingg-oa final broadside at the Spanish ships, in chance hope of making them pay for their daring before they gained the harbor, but they steamed in under Morro's guns untouchod, and as they disappeared fired several shots. Several shots were sent after them at that moment which dropped inside the harbor, probably creating consternation among scores of bum boate on the water front. DEWKY SENDS A BUJEF TELEGRAM.

A match at court tennis, beat II out of -1 sets, for tbe championship of the world and a purse of fJO.OOO will be played at Lord's teuuis court, London, between Thomas Perdt of tbe Boston Athletic association and Peter Latham of tbe Queen's club, London, in tbe first week of next .November. This will be tbe most important court tennis event since Pettit defeated Mr. Saunders nearly ten years ago for the world's championship and a large purse. Tbe court to be used for the service will be neutral and tbe balls of French manufacture. Each player will be allowed, by the stipulations of the match, to practice for i!4 hours in the court to be used. There will be five sets played each day until the winner is known. Soon afcer Pettit had defeated Sana- ders he surrendered the championship, and Latham then challenged Sannders to a match for the title, Latham winning. Petdt's friends have been anxious for him to retrieve his laurels, and, believing him to be tbe champion of the world, arranged this match. Pettit has invited Henry Bookes of the Chicago Athletic association to accompany him on his trip across the and to as-. sist him in his training for the games.

HAVANA, cessful would have cleared the front of Havana of six ships on that blockading station.. TTnable to come out to do battle he adopted the tactics of the spider and cunningly planned to draw the prey into his net. but though a clever and pretty scheme as ac original proposition it was practically a. repetition of the trick hy which the gunboat Vicksburg and the little converted revenue cutter Morrili were decoyed by a fish- ins smack under the big Krupp guns of Panta 0!ara batteries. Thanks to bad gunnery both shipson that occasion m«n- a:red tu 5et out of the range without being sur.k, though some of the shells burst close aboard and the Vicksburgr's "Jacob's ladder" was cut adrift. The wary are never caught twice in the same trap. Cruiser Alfonsn XII Out for a Spin. Lai? Saturday afternoon the ships on the Havana station were dumfounded to see two ship? su-am out of Havana harbor and head ea=t. Dense smoke was streaming like black ribbons from their stack?, and a glance showed that they were under a full head of steam. By aid of glasses Commander Lilly, of the Mayflower, which was flying the p-enr.ant, madfe out the larger vessel of the tr,-o, which was about 200 feet long and about 4.COO tons displacement, to be the cruiser Alfonso XIII. and the smaller on- to be the gunboat I.egazpi, both of whic'h were known to be bottled up in Havana harbor. At rirst he supposed that they were taking advantage of the absence of the heavy fighting ships and were making a bona ride run lor the open sea. As superior officer he immediately signalled the other five ships on the station to> form * column with sun- boats on the rij-ht flank. '. But the Fly-Was Not Deluded. The little squadron moved in obliquely toward the fleeing Spanirds, keeping up a ; running fire as th*jr went, Th.e JUfpnso and'tier consort cJT— T " < " "> Captures Another Gunboat—Troop* To Be Ru.tlivd to His Aid. Washington. May 16.—The dispatches from Hong Kong brought welcome news yesterday from Admiral Dewey to the president and particularly to Secretary Longand the naval officials who are watching theadmiral's movements wit so much interest. While no apprehen sion existed as to his security nevertbe less n-assu ranee of safety is alway pleasant. The telegram from Dewey i as follows: "Cavite, May 13.—Maintaining: strlc blockade. Reason to believe that the rebels are hemming in the city by land but have ' made no demonstration Scarcity of provisions in Manila. Prob able that the Spanish governor will b( obliged to surrender soon. Can takf Manila at any moment. Climate ho and moist.

The officials are making; all possible haste to rush troops to supplement Admiral L'ewey's forces so that if the Spanish governor does surrender the former will not tae dependent upon the small number of marines which he can illy spare from his ships, but will have the assistance of soldiers in holding his position and maintaining order. Secretary Lonsr also made public a message which .had been received from Key West telling of the departure of the United States vessel Uncas in command of Captain Brainard. She is bound for some point in Cuba with a view to securing the release of two American prisoners under a flag of truce, in exchange for Spanish prisoners held by this government. The statement given out by the secretary on the subject was as follows: "The U. S. S. T'ncas left (Key West) shortly before midnight last night with instructions to send flag of truce with regard to exchange of prisoners." In Adjutant General Corbin's office, war department, important action in the assignment of volunteer troops to the various mobilizing points was taken during yesterday. The order of as- slsnment shows that there has been S'lfic change regarding the points to which volunteers shall be sent, as a tToat portion of them go to Chicka- nrv.iea. while- those who will rome to Washington are less by 10.000 than were originally assigni-d to this city. Several cablegrams were received at the navy department yesterday mom- in» from r-ommanck-vs of fleets, and others were sen tin reply. It is stated that the government'is now communicating with the several squadrons, and developments of more or less importance are looked for in the near future. In conse- quem-e of the publication of important naval movements an order has been issued by Secretary Long directing- that all matters concerning naval movements be withheld from the press except such as he himself may see fit to announce, CUTTING CABJ.KS AT CIENFUEGOS."

Commodore Schley, anchored off Charleston. bar, nine miles from Charleston city, at 4:SO o'clock yesterday afternoon, after having been at sea for three days and. seen no sign of Spanish cruisers or torpedo boats. At sunset on the day the squadron left Cape Henry active battl« preparations were made. Ports.-were closed with Bteel covers, battle hatchea covered, the main batteries of the ship* loaded and mrm sent to the grim* with instructions for a night watch to be kept. With all lights extinguished the squadron proceeded is a southeasterly direction. Towards morning aev- . eral heavy fog banks were run into and £uriu\; one of these intervals the collier Sterling became detached. When th» , collier arrives all the ships will take , coal and proceed to sea again.

Instantly every light on the , merchantman went out and she made a . run. evidently expecting that she had encountered the Spanish. No attempt • was made to undeceive her, and it is • expected that, she will report havingseen » hostile fleet.
