On July 10, 1SCD, at the uge of twenty-three years, Miss Bulluot became Mme. Felix Fan re. She was a beautiful brunette, with jot black hair and sparkling eyes. Two daughters have blessed this union, and Antoinette, the younger, is her say that' .she win Du an ornament to the Elysee palace. Mme. Fan re always remains in her own apartments until noon, the hour for dejeuner a la fourchette, but the president rises at 5 o'clock, and at C he is in his study. Jle then reads thu documents left over from the previous evening', and while perusing them ho smokes a curved pipe called a pipe do chasse. Regularly at 10 minutes before S the president returns to his dressing-room, changes his clothes, and at 8 o'clock ho is ready to give audience or to work with his secretaries. Mine. 1'clix Fauro is being greatly assisted in her duties as ''first lady of the land" by her eldest daughter, Mile. Lueie Faurc, a very beautiful girl, 25 years old. Mile. Lucio is, like her mother, intelligent, witty, talented and very literary. She is fond of poetry, writes poems with great facility, and willingly recites them to her friends. Mile.

A Chinese miner, who, with a companion, was lost in the snow amid the rugged mountains of Plumas county, bus been found, nearer dead tlian alive. For ten days, says the Orovillc Mercury, he lived in a hollow tree, with nothing to cat but some Chinese mod- icine and seraps of leather cut from his. boots. \Vhen rescued by a 1 party of white miners "his fi-rt, from which he had cut tho boots for food, were terribly frozen, and ho was so weak hf; could hardly move. The searchers conld find no trace of his companion, who is certain to have perished. There was a large number of Chinese mining at Brown's Hill, and February 25 two of the number left the camp to go to La Porte, a distance of sixteen miles, to procure some Chinese medicine, for the use of the members of the camp. Then the weather was good, and tho two Chinese proceeded safely over tho snow to La Porte, procured the medicine, stayed over night and started back the next morning. During their trip back on the 20th a snowstorm came up nnd tho Chinese became bewildered and hopelessly lost in the rough, mountainous country. They each had different ideas as to which direction to take, and finally quarreled and separated. One of them had not gone far before he found a hollow tree, wherein he was somewhat sheltered from the storm. lie had matches with him and built a small fire, and, crouching over that, he lived for ten clays. When their companions did not return to Brown's Hill the Chinese became alarmed and went to La Porte, where they ascertained that they had been there and started back. Then the white men about Cascade and Lumpkln were notified and search parties went out. The other day John Kitrick, while searching with a companion for the lost man, noticed smoke down in a canyon. Be went down there, and ia a tree found the poor Chinese nearly dead. Leaving him there. Mr. Kitrick went for help, and the unfortunate man was taken to the settlement on a sled. His experience during those ten days had been fearful. As the pangs of hunger came upon him be took ofl: his boots, parched them over the fire, and ate them and drank the medicine. When lie found his boots were all gone and his feet frozen and he was so weak he could not stand, he had given up all hope. So grateful was he that when camp was reached he gave his rescuers fvftj' dollars in gold dust, all that he had. He will recover. w, c. as well as Watson and Ilcnie, who have beaten records in Great Britain, arc to visit this country. Henie holds records from four miles to eight miles, while Watson is the ten-mile champion of England. If these men come to the United States, contests will be arranged in which the English champions will meet the fastest American riders, with resists sure to be interesting. Houben is a famous wheelman of great speed and wonderful endurance, but he will have to drive his wheel faster than ho ever has done to beat either Sanger, Johnson or Titus, It is doubtful if there is a bicycle rider in the world who can beat John S. Johnson, of Minneapolis, unless it be Walter Sanger, and it is doubtful if the rider has yet mounted a wheel who can defeat Fred Titnsat from twenty to thirty 'miles. Titus, by tho way, has joined the Spalding bicycle team, and he has issued a challenge to ride any man in the world 25 miles for $5,000 a side. It would not be wonderful if no cyclist picked up the gauntlet, for bicycle riders are like race horses and pedestrians. These belong in classes, llany can ride the shorter distances in fast time, F.

Johnson also holds the following records with standing start, which exceed trotting horse time; Quarter of a mile. 2S seconds; half a mile, 50K seconds; one mile, 1 minute 57 3-5 seconds; two miles, 4 min- ntes 1 second; three miles, 0 minutes 9 seconds; four miles, IS minutes 15 S-5 seconds; five miles, 20 minutes 22 3-5 seconds. The best record for one mile ever made by any cyclist was make b3 T Johnson at Buffalo, N. Y., October 24, 1S94, when he covered a mile on a straightaway course in the remarkable time of 1 minute 35 2-5 seconds, which performance beat the best mile run on a straightaway course by a race horse, Salvator having covered a mile at Monmouth Park, Long Branch, N. J., in 1 minute K5X seconds. Johnson is now one year older, and he has had greater experience and more practice. Ho confident!3' expects this summer to beat his Buffalo record. Earl in his career Johnson was not regarded as a fast man, and was beaten any number of times in competitions on an ordinary wheel. The elliptical sprocket gear used on bicycles reduces the amount of friction to a minimum and is a big advantage to a strong wheel driver, who plugs away at the cranks and relies on his power more than his cleverness in fast pedaling. The invention is an old one, but it has only recently come into use. Johnson was one of the first to use the improved bicycle, and rode a mile in 1 minute 56 1-5 seconds. Another thing that has operated in Johnson's favor is the fact that lie was the first cyclist to be paced by a horse. In all trials against time cyclers are paced by some one who goes before them and breaks the force of the wind, which is one of the great- Castoria is Dr. Samuel Pitcher's prescription for Infants and Children.

It is claimed that neither Johnson nor Sanger can ride £5 miles as fast as many others, while Titus could not ]ive with Sanger or Johnson in a shorter run, Johnson is perhaps the fastest bicycle rider in the world for a mile. Tno wonderful mile ridden by Willie VVindlo in 1 minute 40 4-5 seconds was reduced last year to 1 minute 35 2-5 seconds by John S. Johnson, and the time will come very shortly, if not this, summer, when the mile record will be 1 minute SO seconds. Johnson's mile as well as Windle's was made with a flying start. Harry C. Tyler's one mile standing has been lowered by Walter C. Sanger, and to him alone belongs the title of champion at the standing: mile, he having covered the distance in 2 minutes 7 1-5 seconds. The bicycle is now of as great importance as the trotting horse so far as racing is concerned, and it has been proven that it can be propelled faster and further than a horse. John S.

It has been reported that Johnson would turn professional and £o to England to race against the champions, and the announcement created quite a sensation among' cycle circles. If he should cross the Atlantic it will be late in the fall probably, for he has been matched to ride a series of one- mile races with Walter E.

The fact that Arthur Zimmerman who ranks close to John S.

The number of fast men in classes A and 13 will exceed the number of previous years, and Zimmerman, Wheeler and Banker will not be an. appreciable loss to the American path this season. Among- the famous cyclists who promise great things this year is A. W. Porter, of Waltham, Mass. During- 1S9-1 he rode a mile in 1 minute 52 3-5 secouds; two miles in 4 minute 55 1-5 seconds. He has also, covered a mile in 53 seconds. His two miles flying- in 4 minutes 55 1-5 seconds was a g-rent performance, while his quarter of a mile in 25 seconds, made at Walthain, Mass., on November 15,1S94, was also fast cycling. Another wheelman who is expected to do wonderful things during 1S95 is A. F. Senn, of Utica, lv ,Y., who won a number of races last year in class A un- paced. He is not a sprinter, but his forte is distance riding. Last season he rode three miles in 7 minutes 23 3-5 seconds, four miles in 10 minutes 4 seconds, five miles in 12 minutes 30X seconds and ten miles in 2i minutes KG 1-5 seconds.
