SolcnUsts tell.us that tnere Is great danger of the.omnipuar supply shortly giving'out.- ; It is certainly conjectural whence it-will'come in future years. Of late its demand ha.s been Increased, its supply consumed and Its pr.lce raised by the large quantities of tlie drag used in the -manufacture of celluloid. The trees ifd-om wMch -canvplioir Is produced grow very,.'very.-slojvly. Man, the Baltimore Sun eaya, is their greatest enemy and unless efforts are made to protect the trees now living and others planted, the' future 'will,-have very little camphor. It >i» .'not .generally known, that camphor ils produced by.several trees which differ, .materially in their habits, • while other trees, closely related to themi do not produce the drag. Nearly all that IB iuscd lin Europe arid America is exported froini Clilna aod Japan.

To say that they fell off their wheels would most properly express ,lr. The riders wore Frank W. Skhmer and Shn'i Lispotianl.The former had start eel from the same spot where lie finished, just eighteen hours before, and had completed a circuit of country road* tiwo-liundred and thirteen miles around. There-was a great crowd on Broadway wafiinK in see the finish ol' the nmcli-talkcd-of race against time, and ,1? the two riders hove in sight a cheer went-up that gave evidence of the feel- Ings of those assembled. Skinner and L-lsponard were lifted from, the ground and half "walking, half carried by friends, wore taken Into the rubbing room of the club house and put to bod. Botli were almost completely.exhausted and a p. hjisIi'Jau 1 was summoned at once. They ,-jWplalued of feeling cold and blanl;ets"were piled on the cots until each wns buried in a mass of bedding. Still they protested that they were cold and all the doors of the little room were closed and ilicy were given a good rubdown.

'They had four miles of ,fresli graivel on this'road, nud were 'compelled to ford . a stream -where a bridge had been washed out, taking off their, racing togs and carrying their wheels over their heads, wading water up to their-.necks. They arrived at Lafayette on time and left there at 5:30 for Crawfordsville. For thirteen miles out of Lafayette they literally run their pace-makers dawn, and rode part of the distance-ahead of the pace. Five miles out ot.CratwfordsvMe they were met by a member of the Cr.wfordsville Cycle club, and here Is where they had their first not riding. They were carried the flje miles Into Cmwfordsvllle In thlr- teeu.-mlimtes, and arrived there about twenty-minutes late.

Four 'niMes west of Peru tlie cyclometer registered 200 mltas, 'and the watch showed six o'clock and four minutes. They had done the two-hundred miles in sixteen hours, four minutes. Skinner wns tiring very perceptibly and the pace was slackened almost to a Jog. At the Lewisburg bridge Grant started on alone, leaving Llsponard to pull Skinner In. Two'miles this side of Lewislnirg, Lispeuard pulled up ahead of Skinner and cnught Grnnt. He set ou-t a hot pace with Grant close up, and supposed the latter wns following close all'the way. When nbont three miles from the city Lispeuard looked back and found Grant was not in sight. He went on. until he reached the • Seventeenth street bridge wliore he stopped and waited for the'racers. He had been there but a short' iflnic when Skinner rode up, but Grant/was nowhere in sight, Skinner and' Llspenaru came on lu and when they arrived and told wliore they had loft Giant, a searching party, composed, of.Joseph"Kreis, Matt ObenchaJn and Homer' Closson started out in a carriage to look for ithe^misslDR mnu. They thought he might have become exhausted and fallen from his wheel, so they walked after they left -the Seventeenth street bridge and searched the roadside. 1 They.inquired at all the farm houses.along tlie way, and four miles from the city they found the missing rnccr/gnuply tucked away lu a big feather beg/at the home of Mri McManus.; He wpr'in good condition and could liave finished strong; but said .that whoa he'came.to Mr. McManus's place he- : was sife hungry • he ..could scarcely sit on ills-wheel.. He stopped to get a bite to -eat and Mr. MeManus, who is an acquaintance, would not hear to his starting out agnlii, so he went to bed.

A telegram was received at police headquarters last night about midnight, from Clymers station. The message contaJned tlie description of a man named Atkinson, and a curly-headed little girl, and stated that the child had been kidnapped by the former. It was thought the pair had beaded this- way. The orders were to arrest the man and hold him and the child. A sharp lookout is being kept for the bunted ones. No details of the sensational affair could be secured this morning. A FALSE FIRE ALARM. Workmen in the Schroyer building on Fourth street threwllme from the rear windows last evening: about 5:30 o'clock and the clouds of dust arising Jn the alley led some one to turn In an alarm of fire. T.he department responded, and a. big crowd gathered, in spite of the brisk shower then in progress. Hon. W. T. Wilson, Kepubltca'D candidate for Joint Representative, went to Onward last night to organizer a McKinley club. . Considerable excitement was caused yesterday afternoon on Broadway. A wagon was overturned and the driver thrown out. . Only the sufferer knows the misery of dyspepsia, but -Hood's Saraaparllla cures the most stubborn cases of tuts disease.
