Low prices have conspired to increase this tendency, us light wheels cannot he nmde cheaply. .Not only wheels, but saddles and tires, are leavier this year. It appears, however, hat a fully equipped chain wheel, in- ;ludiug gear case aud brake, is not as leavy as the regulation chftinless. Some lealers say the demand for chainJess vbeels is good, others report to the contrary. .Nearly all agree that the inclosed Jiain model is becoming constantly more of a factor. While some dealers ask $5 extra for a gear case, and claim hat they obtain it easily, others offer t as a true part of the wheel and ask nothing extra. The latter class say that iefore long competition will drive all .ealers to offer the best American gear ase free as a regular equipment.—Phil- delphia Times. How to .IWak* Goose Terrapin.

It is «uirirrly contrary to the Christian or religious spirit. Xo defender of competition can rightly bear the Christian, name no matter what Ms theological opinions. It destroys beaury and strength and virrae. it blights child- lood and womanhood and manhood, 'it wastes our wealth, it ruins our resources, aids anarchy and sustains strife,— Rev. P. Fay Mills, Evangelist Bost a. Each of TheBB Sportu M&ke« the Other Slorc Popular. Old prejudices which for years have kept Amertems out of health giving pastimes and the enjoyment of nature on the seventh day are rapidly being dispelled. We are growing more and more like the Germans in this respect and it is not disputed that we are made physically better for it. The bicycle is the wedge which lins split the old prejudices. It is a convenient and inexpensive means of taking the clerk to the flower covered trees in the countrv. Tired out with six days of-toil behind a counter, he welcomes the moderate and beneficial exercise of cycling and the opportunity for a journey into the country. If he be a church member, he attends service in the morning and afeerwai-d deriv«g the benefits of cycling and the pure air outside the city. Members of the so called fashionable set now play golf on Sunday; many do, anyway. And if they don't go to the links awheeling it is because they can't get a machine to ride on. Cycling goes hand in glove with golf. It seems, in fact, that the one makes the other more popular. Close observers may notice in the park and on the boulevard on Sundays many a cyclist with a bag of golf sticks strapped to the headpost and pedaling in the direction of the links north of the Harlem. Two seasons ago this was not generally known. Now it is a common sight and may be taken as conclusive evidence that Americans are growing more and more appreciative of the benefits of plenty of outdoor exercise, which they indulge in -whenever opportunity offers.—Xe-w York..Ti»i«, To Keep Oar Clerks Active Constantly Employed is Imparalive. 500 best percale laun- dried Waists. 25 and 500 for Sweaters.

A golf match -was played for a small wager on April 4, 6 and 7 by Messrs. T. H. Oyler of the I^ttlestone Golf club and A. G. Oyler. The play was by alternate strokes -with one ball. The match was across country, from Lintozi park, near Maidstpne, England, to the first hole at Littlestone, the distance being about 35 miles. The players backed themselves to do the distance in 3,000 strokes. A start was made from the north lodge in the park of Mr. F. S. W. Cornwallis, M. P. for Haidstone, at 9:05 a. m., and the first drive down the somewhat narrow avenue resulted in the ball being lost in a clump of rhododendrons. A new one was dropped and a stroke lost. A stroke was also lost at the second shot from the same cause, and, owing to many difficulties, we did not. leave the park till a good iron shot (tine thirty-ninth) took us over the wooden fence. K'o. 65 was lost in the river, whose windings were followed till Headwin was reached at the two lundred and thirteenth stroke. Here a stop was made for luncheon. ,*A start was made at 2 :30, and, leav ing Blitchenden on our left, we crossed the main road to Temerden (along which we played for a short distance, with disastrous results), and then found some miles of pasture, where the brassy was freely used. Then over wheat and oatg, which, fortunately, had been re oently rolled, till at-6 o'clock we ended first day at Crampton House* High Elolden, the number of strokes taken jeing 427. A stump was driven in the ground to mark the spot The line on Wednesday was through rough pasture, wheat and a few small coppices, which gave us much use for the mashie and niblick. A high wind, 'ortunately, was almost behind us. We >iayed through Ingleden park and then reached Shirley moor and the Bother yuaal, where, although we lost many itrokes by driving into the numerous dikes, yet the lies were fairly good, and the brassy could be nsed. Leaving Woodehttrcn on our left, we reached \ppledore, at the seven hundred and hirteeiith shot, at 4:25, after having tist a ball in the Military canal Next we pas ", ,"•«'• the pasture to Appledore station, wliefeSve putted over the railway crossing, and ended the day near Snargate at the eight hundred and forty- ixth stroke, being palled up by a wide like which we could not cross. We started punctually at 8 a. m. on ay, and after getting into many ikes we reached Brenzett. From here he going was good, and we took a bee ine for the tall water tower standing near the first hole on the Littlestone inks. Hope chapel was passed at the me thousand and eleventh stroke, and after a good approach shot with the iron we holed out at 11:38, the number f strokes being 1,08?. The number of times dropped was 62. and the number f balls lost was 17. The wager was easily won.— Golf, CraCl>:, will represent the XranSvaal in the forthcoming English championships, and if he is successful he will continue his journey to Vienna to compete in. the world's championships. Frank Erne has had the X rays applied to his left hand, which he injured some time ago in a battle with Jack Douney. It was discovered that no bones were broken and that with care and attention the member-, will be all right again in a short tirna CYCLE RACING. VARIETY OF SPORTS. It is given out that Michael's pace- making crews this season will number 50 men all told. R. P. Clark, the professional tricy- clist and all round racing crack, has left England for the Klondike. The bicycle prophets say that the mile record time this season will be reduced to 1 minute 20 seconds and the unpaged mile record to 1 minute 35 seconds. The first cyclist to negotiate the journey around the world with success was Thomas Stevens, who in 1884 became famous by carrying out his project in spite of some fearful drawbacks. He completed his ride in 1887. His mount was a 50 inch ordinary- Eddie Bald, according to his manager, Pat McDonald, is said to bo in better form just now than, ever before at this period of the year. Patrick ventures to predict that Bald will again be champion, with Kiser, Stevens and Cooper well up in the front bunch- There is an idea among the racing men, trainers and managers of London that America has no tracks. Secretary Reeves of the National cycledrome, New York, who returned recently from aboard, nays that the Crystal palace track, of -which much is heard in this country, is cracked throughout the surface aud is inferior to a score or more of the American tracks. A moot question in cycle racing circles ever since the introduction of mul- ticycles for track work has been which machine is capable of the fastest work. It has never been decisively answered and individual opinions on the subject differ greatly. Some think that the combination of three fust men aud a triplet can travol faster than anything else from a single to a sextet on account of the triplet's comparative lightness, the ease with which it may be handled and the quickness with which it may be got under full speed. Most of these advaa tages are possessed by the tandem, but the triplet advocates contend that the greater power of three men lessen the worth of a tandem as compared with the three searer.

W. members may be considering, as the writer just now is, whether it is, on the whole, 3est to renew membership. Not that sensible wheelmen raise that old question, "What do we get for our dollar:" in a small, selfish way, hot that we are getting far too much nonsense—too much politics, too much -Potter, too much Sherwood—and that the league is run too much by clique and claque. Whether the L. A. W. should control racing or should let it wholly alone is a question on which good argument can be made on either eide, but if it is to deal with racing it should do so decently. In construction and maintenance ol roads, In looking after unfriendly legislation and the defense of the rights of wheelmen there is surely enough for the Li- A. W. without rushing off into foolishness. Whether this disease of small politics and personal ownership can be trusted to -work oCt it* own cure or whether reform will be best effected by a monitory dropping off in the membership may be left for each to decide for himself.—Wew York Commercial Advertiser.
