'A League man writes to the Bulletin some reasons for humping over. They. arc: It distributes the weight, part on the saddle, pswt cm -Phe pedms and pai-t on the'handles. It enflblos one, by pushing on the handles to fit buck ng.i'tast tire con-tie of the saddle, Instead of having the weight upon the middle of the suspension top, thus avoiding pcniniU pressure. % Hosting part of' the weight,'In Use ha,nds pushes' the should'ers back and opwis the cihcHt. Sitting erect, reaching .forward and pulling on the handles, does Just the contrary. When one rides over an obstacle or a rough road he can shift Ms weight from front to rear, or jump one wheel and then tl» other, over the obstruction. Sitting erect, each, obstacle ridden over muse raise the rear wheel and saddle, nod the saddle must raise the man-s wlwto weight, as a rigid mass. A heavy beam may safely be hauled over a •rough road, If It lie lengthwise of the wagon; tat set . It .up on end and It won't take many bumps to send it through tine bottom of the wagon. It is an advantage to cutting the wind, and it is easier to acquire and to use a correct aaikle motion. The leaning position, prevents no one seeing as far ahead as any one else can sec. • .
