JffiM tJffilB DM MOIHllSr AL(K)NA IOWA, WlfiNE^BAY FESRtTAHY NOTES OF THE WHEEL M ATT6RS OP iNtfeRBST OTEfcS OF THE BICYCLE. Times Have Chanced—Retiring Racing Men Can No Longer Feel Sure of Trade Employment—Puncture Proof Tire Filling at Last. Time* Have Changed. It has for many years been the custom of the cycle trade, to employ ex- tacing men in offices, show rooms, and works; and when the ex-racing man has a genius for office, show room or factory business, such employment is no doubt an advantage; but the idea that the ex-racing man can look forward to employment in the cycling trade with any degree of reasonable certitude, is an altogether fallacious one, says Irish Cyclist. Even if every ex-racing man were endowed with the requisite aptitude for business, it must be obvious that there can never be such a continually increasing number of vacancies as would be required to accommodate the continual flow of ex-racing men into the trade, because trade expansion Is limited, and when a person has installed himself in a suitable berth, he does not expect to be kicked out to make room for the next retiring racing man. Scarcely a week goes by but that one hears of some ex-racing man who appears to be discontented with his present Occupation and to be looking around for a position in the cycle trade, with which he has not one atom of practical acquaintance. There are hundreds of capable young fellows now idle through having given up situations in businesses with which they had some acquaintance, in the expectation of obtaining more remunerative and congenial employment 'in the cycle trade on the strength of being able to ride a bicycle fast. The trade is overstocked with experienced men already, and for every vacancy there are many applicants. The racing man must be content to race for sport without looking forward to the cycle trade as a final resort when his speed begins to flag. of the United states and Germany. This is owing to three reasons: First, the British manufacturer does not avail himself of the latest improvements in machinery; second.the British mechanic is not now as technical as the American or German mechanic; third, the labor market is continually being disturbed by strikes and lockouts. fiald and Sloan aft Team Mates. Ex-Actor Eddie Bald is traveling toward the Pacific coast in company with Tod Sloan, the famous little jockey who set all England agog last summer. The jolly pair are making the trip by easy stages and having and making what fun they can on the way. They are avowedly bent oh pleasure, it being Bald's desire, possibly, to forget the worriments of the all-to-brief theatrical season. The jockey sets a fast pace, but finds it hard to shake the champion cyclist, except in the matter of dress, in which he can give Bald a generous handicap and still come off victor. But the Buffalonian is enthusiastic over his little team mate, and says he will go to Europe with him next summer and will ride in match cycle races there. Single Tube Clincher Tiro. The invention comprises what is probably the first of its kind in this country, though similar tires have been made, and are now in exclusive use, in England. The tire is made with a base which fits a rim tire, but with the lapping edges so formed as to receive between them an annular sealing tube. The inflation valve leads to the expansible tube, all the air which is forced into the tire first passing through that tube and thence into the tire proper through small holes ar- Puiicture Proof TIr« Filling. • Patent has been granted .to an inventor of Berlin, Germany, on an elastic filling for tires, saddles and similar cushioned articles, and on the process of manufacture thereof. The inventor makes a jelly of glue or gelatin, to which is added glycerin to prevent hardening, and an antiseptic substance to prevent fermentation; and heats the mixture until it becomes liquefled.when he beats it into a foam by suitable mechanical means, and, introducing it in this state into the tire or saddle, allows it to cool and solidify, retaining the air in the bubbles by which the elasticity of the substance, itself elas- ' tic, is considerably increased, and the weight much reduced. The result is a spongy substance of cellular formation. The weight may be further decreased and the substance made more elastic by the introduction of a number of small hollow balls or tubes of soft rubber. Instead of forcing the substance directly into tires when in the heated plastic state, it may be run into molds of the desired shape and allowed to cool first. Cushions of this material are durable, do not become rigid, non- elastic nor hardened, and can be made economically. They are also good conductors of heat and consequently cool in use. FREE TO MILLIONS, A Valuable Little Booh Sent Free for the Aftttthfr Medical books are not always Interesting reading, especially to people enjoying good health, but as a matter of fact scarcely one person i'n ten is perfectly healthy, and even with such, sooner of later sickness must come. It is also a well established truth that nine-tenths of all diseases originate with a breaking down of the digestion, a weak stomach "weakens and impoverishes the system, making it easy for disease to gain a foothold. Nobody need fear consumption, kidney disease, liver trouble or a weak heart and nervous system as long as the digestion is good and the stomach able to assimilate plenty of wholesome food. Stomach weakness shows itself in a score of ways, and this little book describes the symptoms and causes and points the way to a cure so simple that anyone can understand and apply, Thousands have some form of stomach trouble and do not know it. They ascribe the headaches, the languor, nervousness, insomnia, palpitation, constipation and similar symptoms to some other cause than the true one. Get your digestion on the right track and the heart trouble, lung trouble, liver disease or nervous debility will rapidly disappear. This little book treats entirely on the cause and removal of indigestion and its accompanying annoyances. It describes the symptoms of Acid Dyspepsia, Nervous Dyspepsia, Slow Dyspepsia, Amylaceous Dyspepsia, Catarrh of Stomach and all affections of the digestive organs in plain language easily understood,, and the cause removed. It gives valuable suggestions as to diet, and contains a table giving length of time required to digest various articles of food, something every person with weak digestion should know. No price 'is asked, but simply send your name and address plainly written on postal card to the F. A. Stuart Co., 151'Main St., Marshall, Mich., requesting a little book on Stomach Diseases and it will be sent promptly by return mail. ranged along the top side of the tube near the joining edges of the tire. The claim made for the sealing tube is that after the tire has been inflated the pressure of the tube against the adjacent edges of the tire base will tend to make the joint more surely air-tight than would otherwise be possible. Washington-Baltimore Cycle Path. The committee appointed to investigate the feasibility of constructing a bicycle path from Washington to Baltimore has begun discussing the plans, routes and system of tolls in connection with the project. A civil engineer is to be secured to investigate and report upon the difficulties and report expense of the undertaking, which is roughly estimated to be from $100 to $150 per mile, or $4,000 to $6,000 in all. The popularity of such a path, bringing the national capital within forty miles of easy riding from Baltimore and connecting it with New York and Philadelphia, is not to be doubted. Fcclal Attachment. Removable sideplates are attached to ordinary pedals, the plates being toothed the same as the regular sideplates and of such height that the foot surface will be brought some distance above the usual position. In riding under ordinary circumstances the rider places his feet on the sides of the pedals to which the extension plates are not attached. When it is desired to vary the length of the stroke, as for climbing hills, the rider by a foot movement similar to that which cyclists are accustomed to use in catch- Cycle Track In a Hotel. London Cor. Chicago Record: The new Hotel Great Central, connected with, the new railroad entering London on the north, is approaching completion, and will be ready to receive the summer influx of visitors. One novelty that seems to be worthy of comment is the large cycle track which occupies the greater portion of a flat. This innovation, it is hoped, will allow guests to take their usual exercise in comfort and safety when the streets, as is generally the case, are impassable owing to mud. This is said to be the first arrangement of the sort ever seen in any hotel in the world. As it rule, tears do not accompai^ a baby's cries until it is three mouths old." Brouius Inormla Grass!

A laundress in Paris had her hair caught in the machinery belting, and lier entire scalp, from the nape of her neck to her eyebrows, was torn off.

The fifty-mile match race between Harry Elkes and Frank Waller at Madison Square Garden was won by the former easily in 1:50:46 2-5. Waller was given a handicap of two minutes, in which he gained a lead . of eight and a quarter laps, but his pace was inferior to that of his opponent, who gained steadily on him except when the Butler brothers were pulling him around the ten-lap $rack. At twenty-one miles and three laps Bikes passed Waller. He finished the race nine laps and ten laps in the lead. ing toe clips, rotates the pedals and catches the sides which are fitted with the extension plates.

It is to be doubted whether the British realize the extent to which their trade has'fallen off. The explanation generally given for the decrease during the past year is that it has been caused by the great strike of the engineers, which ran through the latter halt of 1897 and well into last year. Labor has during the past year been employed at increased wages over those paid previously, as a rule. But the productive capacity of tlie British mechanic no longer takes the lead, Jt (,9 exceeded by that of the mechanic Notes. A movement is on foot in New Orleans to build an indoor cycle track.

This remeay is the only known specific in m&ny diseases that, until recent yea,rs.wer« pronounced incurable.

This is n position of great responsibility and the anxiety causes a great nervous strain. Mr. Crocket says : "For fifteen years I watched the big engines mid boilers without a single accident, and only noticed that I WHS getting nervous. Suddenly without warning I was taken sick, and was prostrated. I had the best of physicians but grew gradually worse. At a council of doctors, they said I had nervous prostration, and had destroyed my whole nervous system and would never recover. I'or three years I was 1 unable to move from my bed.
