An Industry T£ml HUH Gro\vu to RlHui- tuotli Proportion la it few Y'uitrri' Tluiv—CosC : lo Llio Mukortf untl Uhui'4. Seine of the hu'g'iir companies have capital invested in the manufacture of bicycles alone ujjgi;«ya'iing $0,Ut)U,UpO. Yet, as has buen snown,. these firms are but a tithe of thu whole, and the industry is growing iurgur and inoru widespread every day. "Judging from the capital'invested in our own concern," s:ii(J the inuuiiger. of one of these firms to mu, "1 should say that $JO,OUO,OOC) to $-JO;000,OUO"would be a conservative computation-of the- ajnount. of capital invested in the bicycle industry in this country. And thin is for tho manufacture of bicycles alone. I do not include- those necessary accessories—saddles,- Jauyjs, bells, chains, tubing and odd parts'.' The manufacture of these articles has necessitated the building of specially constructed plants attached to existing factories, and, of course, the employment of many hundreds of additional hands. In these reinforcements I do not. think l.aia overestimating when -'I- fay that 'another $510,000,000 or $15,000,000 has been invested in the last three or four years, and with perfectly satisfactory results. -'' ^ "There is, however, a peculiar and altogether unlocked for change in process. \Vhen the industry started upon its truly remarkable course bicycle makers were unprovided with machinery and/ tools for the manufacture of certain parts of the wheel, such, for instance, as those made with screw machinery; Tfc'is was almost entirely done by one firm, whose business in consequence ^'Increased enormously. Necessity ia th'e mother of invention, you "know, rind as it soon became evident that these parts could be made more cheaply than they could be bought there very quickly arose bright engineering geniuses in nearly every establishment who set themselves to the invention of new and improved machinery with whic'h to make them on the parent preiaises." "I do not fear contradiction," eaid the manager of one of tho largest athletic sundries concerns in the country to me, "when I declare my belief that there is not a trade in the United States (.hat hiis'n-ot been beneficially affected by the bicycle industr3'. Why, even the butchers are benefited by the improved health and healthier appetites of the people. •. Members of every trade have found it to their advantage to invest some money in one of the many necessary adjuncts to the bicycle pastime. "The leather goods people have found it necessary to invest in a special class of goods favorable to the manufacture: of saddles, bags, valises and such like sundries. The shoemakers now make specially do-signed shoes, leggings, etc. The glovemakers are nflected. Watchmakers manufacture and keep on saJe cyclometers and such like instruments of precision. Photographic apparatus makers turn' out specially ./"designed, cameras. Woodworkers ; a'na cane- workers and cork cutters, engravers, locksmiths and newspapers all have found it positively necessary to invest more or less cnpital in various branches; of the bicycle industry. The total f:ap- ; ital thus infested", entirely outside of "Whon do yon begin to grow your whiskers?" Is the Democratic salutation these days, wlieu Greek worts Greek. Tho American producer should have the benefit of the doubt as-to how much protection should be given him.

The investment is spread over an enormous are-d." A little sum in arithmetic is necessary to get.,at the, amount of .money spent by the .devotees'of the new pastime. " ; Prices of wheels vary from $50 to $100*and upward;- $75 may, therefore, be pretty snfejy ncc'epted as an average first cost to the,owne,r of a bicycle Put down another-.$5- '-for such" adjuncts ns lamp; bell; cyclometer aad a few useful, handy tools. There is possibly a suit of bicycling clothes, which may 'be estimated at $20, and then for the simple repairs that may be needed while on a lonff trip and away from the regular repair shops of the-^-maker. These are not. likely .to exceed $5 in a 3 - ear. The guaranty'given with ail bicycles covers all ordinary repairs not the result of carelessness or accident caused by t.he owner.. Together these sums, which include first cost, amount to $105. Now 'by the end of the season a rider may be tired of his "bike" or sees one he likes better, and: wishes to make an exchange. His old. machine and $30 to $30 will procure him n.brand- new one of the latest model. Hence we may take it thaVthe'onnual expense of keeping a bicycle,' inclusive of • first cost, is about $30, or, say. SI per week. This, of course, 1 does not include refreshments on .. journeys, hotel and other incidental expenses.—N. Y. .Herald. - CASTING A FLY, Art In Required to Do tho Thine I'rop- erly, Fly casting constitutes one of the greatest joys of angling. Although open water is, of course, preferable, it is not* however, absolutely necessary. Any 100-foot clear air space will answer tho purpose of the beginner, although the water practice enables one to use, the regular cast of flics nnd leaders ranch sooner. While sawed shots for weights are to be usud in lieu of flies und leaders in the first efforts the liittcr should as soon as possible be substituted, for the line does not handle the same when they are notat-tachcd. Iu Hy casting a carefully made and especially adapted sectional split bamboo rod may be used, mid the reel should be attached to the butt. With 20 feet of line in the water, or upon the lawn, as the case may be, nnd with the rod held at angle of about -10 degrees in front,- the angler is ready, for the start of the cast. Let the line be now worked out eight or ten feet further. This is done by drawing the line from the click reel with the left hand, and then by the'springing, willowy action of the rod, which action at the same time draws the slack line tbrough the rod guides, the line is lifted upward and overhead to the rear, making the .beginning of a very important feature —the back cast. The upward, overhead and backward motion of the line by the spring of the rod is 1 produced by the motion of the angler's forearm and wrist only. The rod should be stopped in the backward movement when it reaches nn angle of ten degrees in the rear, and as the line reaches a point in the rear at almost rig'ht nngies to the extreme tip of the rod the-angler should again, by a wrist nnd forearm movement-, throw tho rod forward by an angle of 43 degrees in front, thus producing the cnst. The next cast should be made by drawing the line from the reel as before and making exactly the same casting motions, a.nd so on until the desired distance is attained. The back cast, often puzzles beginners. In attempts to recover this back cast too soon :ind start t.he line forward before it has time to straighten out in the rear ninny mishaps are experienced. The recovery must bo made at the right moment, and this is the most difficult problem of solution. This feature will be made easy in time by care and practice; The proper action of the rod, which may be accurately constructed and especially adapted in weight nnd length for fly casting, will be greatly impeded if the forearm and wrist motion is not properly executed. Its proper execution is the very foundation, as it, were, of fly casting. It is not a weak or relaxed motion, but o very rigid one. This motion brings out the action of the rod, and if properly executed produces the desired distance casting and the forearm is even auxiliary to the wrist rooti-on, which latter throws the fly and the line upward and backward. The pump-handle motion of the whole arms should be most carefully avoided, for although quite natural for a beginner, satisfactory results can never result from its use. — Lcwiston (Me.) Journal.

The Sun told the other day of a rat whose tail was caught .by a clam An Indian Joke. A trader at Fort Berthold, on the upper Missouri, also tells a story that illustrates an Indian's notion of a practical joke. A Eee Indian had given him 1 considerable annoyance by hanging around the store, in a half-drunken condition,, nnd was told tha-t in case he-was seen again with a bottle it would be taken away.-'from- 1 him and thrown into tho- fire. A few days afterward the Indian 1 appeared with apintflaskin his blanket' as usual. .The trader was as good as his word, and demanded the bottle, which was given up without a word of protest, and then the redskin star.ted for' the door. .The trader threw the flask into the stove, when' bnig! went li* stove and out came the windows; the trader following 1 ;- Hnd he stopped to investigate before -throwirg hei. would have found the flask contained, gunpowder, not w.h,isky.-rGolden Buys, i —Our happiness' in this world depends, on the affections that w*-are enabled to inspire,—^ Duchess de over in Hob.oken.

The Sun' recently told of a gull'which was nenrly drowned by a clam that had closed on its bill in a Massachusetts bny. Similar stories are told of other, birds. Men have stepped into the open jaws of huge clams accidentally at low.tide, and the clams, closing their jaws, ha.ve held them fast til) the tide rose, when the : men were drowned. Other men have reached for a lure in the form of a luminous spot. The instant they touched it the shells of a clam closed on thcjr arms and in a few minutes the men were drowned. Some of the clams that trap men are found embedded in the coral reefs-of the Pacific and Indian oceans, and the men captured are pearl divers.

A prospecting miner returning, wcar- riedanddisgusted, froinan unsuccessful i-eason, stumbled across a bowlder so rich in gold that in an instant he is a millionaire, says the Xew York Journal. It reads like a fairy tale, but it happens to be true. There is satisfactory evidence of the truth of Martin Noilly's wonderful find. It was on Monday, April 27, thatJfeilly was returning to IJossland, B. C., after nn unsuccessful prospecting trip in the; Salmon river district. He had reached the Columbia river at a point, six i.^i t'J> north of Trail Landing, B. C., at about noon, and, selecting a site oc the hank •f the stream, at the foot of Lookout mountain, sat down to eat his dinner. As he munched his humble food ho noticed a huge bowlder, half buried in the sand, in a dry portion of the river bed. not far from where he sat. When he had finished I:is meal he walked over to the bowlder, examining. It in a casual manner, and then,as his experienced eye delected signs of the precious metal for which he had vainly sought for months, he attacked' the great gray mass with his pick, working with feverish energy. He swooned when a fragment of rock cam away, showing distinctly the traces o and copper. ; I am rich," he shouted. Then h proceeded to take specimens of the or from n dozen places on the bowlder staked out his claim, hurried into Ross laaid, arriving late Jn the aftornopn.ac recorded the claim. The next day h had his specimens assayed by differen experts, who found that the orciran i value all the way from four to fifty eight dollars to the ton. When he told of his great, fortune there was a wild rush to the place. J surveyor accompanied Noilly to hi bonanza, and, after making- measure ments, declared that the bpwlde weighed approximately 20,000 tois, ana that, in round numbers, it will prove t be worth $1,000,000. f FOLDING KITES. -GIVEN AWAY- KN1VES and RAZORS In exchange for Coupons with ERVOUS, UNTI-DYSPEPTIC I and NICOTINE NEUTRALIZED/ • JACK KNIVES and PEN KNIVES, • • Stag Bandle; Bozor Steel, First • • quality, American manufacture, • • hand forged and finely tempered, • • Fine.

The bow is formed of two light steel ribs, one on either side of the stick,.which aj-e railed into place and bowed into form, as the ribs of an umbrella are raised; thtre are braces running from the ribs to : a mewl band which slides on the stick, like the sliding ferrule on the handle of on umbrella; when the bow U raised and in place it is held there by turniogo little metal button attached to the kite stick under the band to which the braces arc attached. As the ribs are raised their inner ends, where they meet at the Rtick, near the top, bow up into a light metal holder which projects slightly on either side of the stick and which holds the two parts of the bow in line. ; The kite is covered with light muslin; they are used in covering the kites muslins of various colors, so that some of the kites are red, some blue; and so on. The tail Is of etrini? witii little parti-colored bunches of muslin cuttings attached along- its length, as little bunches of paper are sometimes attached to string kite tails; at the end there Is a little bag in which may be placed a marble or other weight, if more ballast is required, in a high wind.
