IOWA MAH WINS THE COT, Fred, Gilbert of Spirit take Takes the Mi-st Prize at Baltimore—fhe Champion Wing 1 Shot Bailey Mourns the bepattuts ot His Two Female Gbmposltors—Ncstthwftst Notes, Fred, Gilbert, ot Spirit Lake Is how standing in the full blaze of the effulgent sunshine of 'success, He went down to Baltimore last week and took the famous Dupont cup, $500 in cold cash, and the world's championship as a. wing shooter away from the crack men of the eastern clubs. There were 53 men at the outset, our Chns. Grimm of Clear Lake amorig them, but after the first ten pigeons had been let loose only 12 had bagged a straight string. Grimm was among those early out. Next morning ten more birds were put up and at the end of this string only four shooters were left. Two of these were Mo A) later, the crack eastern shot, and Brewer, also a professional. Coe was the fourth. Goe went out on his 22nd bird. Brewer on his 26th and MoAlister and Gilbert were tied. Then came the shoot-off, and McAllster was booked . for a sure winner, but the second bird he got flew away, and Gilbert killed his five straight and won. Ho was vigorously applauded, and the trophy, which is a handsome silver cup on a stand of onyx, the whole valued at $650, was handed to him, whereupon he went to an adjoining tent and had his picture taken, trophy and all. Gilbert grew up at Spirit Lake, got his practice as a shooter killing ducks there and at Ruthven, and Is the champion wing shot of the world. Bailey's Female Compositors. Britt Tribune: The two feminine compositors stayed just a week, the time they were hired for, .and have gone. What a dreary, lonesome world it is now in the office. The canary bird, who held the position of "slug 2," called for copy In such dulcet tones,' and smiled so sweetly when we leaned up close to her to explain the spelling or construction of the sentences. Oh, "wough.yum, yum," she was a nice little girl and a good typesetter, and that case is now chuck full of silence and no chewing gum. And the other one, calm and serene. 'When we wrote an exceedingly funny Item s for the especial purpose of breaking in on that firigid gravity, how guileless , she looked when she asked if it was In-; tended for humor or was It a mistake. The compositor, foreman and devil were all on hand at 6 o'clock in the morning waiting to see them 'sail in. And, ohl what a lot of work the clerks around town discovered they were in need of, But the last " dupe" has been taken, the string counted up, and the usual gloom of the office again rests on the cases. The canary bird warbles no more, silence reigns and the 1 devil talks In his sleep. That Wind Propelling Bicycle. . Michael Leahy of Pocahontas county has Invented a bicycle that he claims is self-propelling, or nearly so. A compressed air apparatus is placed under the seat and before starting Is filled after the manner of a pneumatic tire. When filled the rider' mounts and it it is only necessary to send the pedals around once to force enough air into the tank to make twenty revolutions of the wheel. The inventor hopes to complete an attachment by which the weight of the rider, distributed in a certain way, will perform the work of replenishing the tank, and then be will only have to guide the wheel, Fran It E.
