An Excellent Pead at Present, Say Mesne Strathy andWlggtna inners Supply Pie. Mr. W. F. Strathy and Mr.

C. M. Wig gins, two of the city bank clerks, have returned from a very pleasant bicycle trip. Leaving Ottawa at a quarter paat two o'clock they arrived In Aylmer at three, and after some delay re mounted, and at half past three were speeding away for the Quyon, where they' arrived at a quarter to seven. About a third of the road from Ayl mer to the Quyon is of blue clay and al though It Is comparatively smooth and very dry It was too lumpy In places to admit of riding with any degree of comfort on the way up; on the return trip the whole distance was covered In the saddle, the traffic having been sufficient in the meantime to smooth the The balance of the road is excellent, 'with the exception of probably a mile of red sand, but that has a fine, ridable path on either aide.

The agri culturists, along tne way are very Jtina and obliging, and not only do they refuse to accept pay for a glass of milk, but frequently offer you pie and cake at the earns price. For a loci distance the road runs along the base of the Laurentlan Hills, which i tower hundreds of feet above It. On the opposite aidei of the road and beneath this level ara to be seen large and beautiful rich farms, level as a billiard table, with the Ottawa river In the distance. 1 Quyon is a lively little town of about seven hundred inhabitants, principally English-speaking people situated on the Ottawa twenty-seven miles, by the road, above Aylmer. There are about twenty stores of varioua kinds, and four hotels of about equal accommodation.

Mr. bangs (the Union hotel) can be Three miles further on Is Chats Falls, which alone are worth the trip to see. Here the Ottawa river widens to three miles, and a lour distance in front of you, you have a full view of seven large falls of. different alzes and shapes, besides several smaller ones of no less In terest. Here also Is to be seen the remains of the Onion Forwarding end-Railway Co.

Her abductors have disappeared. The story told by the girl Is quite the reverse of her father's. She say 8 that the Perrlgo home was surrounded by men. and Perrlgo, his wife and the girl started to run-away.

The authorities are endeavoring to capture the Bowerman brothers and will Investigate the whole affair thoroughly. Getting- a Fund to Appeal. A couple of Lower town grocers have started In to collect a fund to oppose the -early closing movement by-law on the ground of Illegality.

As soon as what is 'thought will be sufficient funds are collected, one or more grocers will start out to do business after 7:30 p.m. and If brought up. the case will be appealed.

Stewart has served the city clerk with a notice claiming damages. The pianka were put up against the hydrant opposite the Merchants' Bank so that no further accidents will occur. The city clerk visited the place this morn Ing at lLM and will report to the city engineer. i A Cheap Minister wanted. Editor Journal: noticed In your columns, 10th that the Goulbourn Presbyterians want anew minister as Rev.

McLean's services are not desired. The Rev. H. McLean has labored faith fully amongst them. Since he came to Richmond there have been one hundred communicants added to the church and he a-ave Goulbourn over forty services in the year when they were only entitled to twenty.

Those people only represent one charge ot three that Rev. McLean has and they- only pay about half what Richmond pays and get nearly as much preaching. 1 1 I don't believe that Its the minister's fault. They want to have th emanage-ment ot Richmond and pay their money in Goulbourn. They have taken an unconstitutional step.

Out of eight elders there are seven- in Rev. Mr. McLean's favor and we knew nothing of the tran saction till it aoseared in Tne Journal. I have always found the Rev. Mr.

Mc Lean dolnr his duty and working for tsSJiord ar.i when he is rexoved they wiu nave trouoie in tne camp. i H03. EHOWN. Elder. Writing made easy (By using BELL'S RUSSELL.

Editor Journal: I was very much surprised to read In your Issue of Saturday, 12th that the orchid found by Master Howells Frechette was the first that has been found in this vicinity for 10 years. I wondered If I had been asleep for the time mentioned. Now sir. as a matter of fact, I have found them every year certainly for the last five or since I learned what an orchid was. The first I remember seeing was picked up by a lady of my acquaintance up the Gatineau river opposite Chelsea.

On Monday last I went to the woods to look af ter my old friends having been stirred up by the notice of Saturday and lei I had the pleasure of carrying home nearly 20. "'WILD HAVE YOD a House to Let or sell Give THE JOURNAL a trial. It'soltea successful. Scotch Serge Suits. MX A snajx 1 Macs.
