That's characteristic. They invariably go to the head, also to the feet. Petticoats of ecru linen batiste with colored polka dots are sold in tho shops for summer wear, and they certainly have qualities of comfort on a hot day which silk does not possess. The craze for violet, mauve and all the shades of purple 1ms extended to the corsets, and yards of violet silk and satin, either plain or flowered, are made up in this important article of dress. Aprons of ample proportions are said to be the fashion in Paris for home wear either morning or afternoon, and they are made of alternate rows of ribbon and lace insertion, printed silk or flowered muslin trimmed with lace. Gold canvas is one of the features of dress at Queen Victoria's drawing rooma this season, and entire bo.dices and the fronts of dresses are made of this material, which is often made more beautiful by little sprays of diamonds and pearls. The English walking hat with the brim rolled up a little at each 'side is brought out in great variety as to shape of crown and kind of straw; the most stylish one of all is the Panama, trimmed severely with black wings and black satin rosettes.

Among them are Jimmy Michael, Fred. Longhead, Tom Cooper, Earl Kiser and Ray McDondald. ^ The various men pursue different methods of training, so that their work is watched with keen Interest. Michael is described as one of the hardest trainers. Ho is on the track about twice a day, and while not riding very long distances, is covering miles in about two minutes thirty seconds. He indulges in walking, rope skipping and other athletic exercises, and it is March 1 to demand the rent due that day, and was thrown down his own ctalrs.

Michael . is .now riding a . wheel geared to 88 inches, but In competition ho will likely use a 92-Inch gear, and in long distance paced races ho may go as high as a 112-inch gear. Naturally Tom Cooper, the American champion, excites widespread interest. He is training on a 73-inch gear, but will Jikely ride a 77-inch in competition. He is riding three and four miles a day, and is credited with being in excellent ahape. Fred Longhead, the Canadian, Is an Industrious trainer. Ho sprints and rides long distances daily, and his preparation augurs well for his performances in the spring meets. While great work is anticipated from Earl Kiser this season, he trains indifferently. He is riding in good form, and lias cultivated a sprint, but he seemc l.o adopt no regular system of work. Kiser Is training on an 80-in'oh gear. It is doubtful if ho will get down to fast form, however, until, the circuit Is well under way. Charley Murphy is working hard and conscientiously this spring. He is riding an 80-inch gear in his practice work on both the road ;md the track. Murphy Is anxious to make a good record this season and re- Lire from the track this fall. He is now in fine condition', and it Is his intention to take in all the big meets throughout the country. must be small, as only an occasional Mder is found using them. It is known that sottte of the leading manufacturers are now at work upon the chainless type, but it is not their intention to put this pattern of wheel ufron the market before '98. A dealer in talking a'bo-it the chadless wheels says: "You may notice what ata enc-rinous demand there is for the medium-grade wheels this year, and you will also find that the practice of price cutting upon the high grade wheels is wholesale. It is my belief that the manufacturers of the $100 bicycles realize that a reduction in price Is imminent Accordingly, their purpose is to put the chain^ less wheels on the. market in '98 a& their leading mount, and possibly sell their bicycles that now figure at $100 at -say $75. The manufacture nf good chainless bicycles Is costly, and I am convinced that some five or six of the large houses are now preparing to turn out chainless bicycles for their leaders next year. The perfected chainless IB the coming wheel, and the class of riders who want the best will buy chainless bicycles at $100 next year. Such a move will enable the manufacturers to still maintain a $100 flguro, while they can, without casting any reflection on the value of the chain gear wheels, sell them at a reduced flguro. It will take fully a season to establish the chainless bicycle, but 1 feel confident that It Is the bicycle of the future." Stop!

France has just had a tussle with the partisans of free transportation lor bicycles, and the wheelmen have come out of the combat with colors flying. Information was received in this city yesterday that the French minister of public works had Issued a decree re- aulring all the railroads in that country to transport wheels.as baggage when accompanied <by their owners. The decree holds that the railroad companies arc responsible for damage if the wheels are injured while in transit. The amount of indemnity is fixed according to the class of fare purchased. The Pill that Will. "The pill that will," implies tho pills that won't. Their namaia legion. The name of the pill that will" is Ayer's Cathartic Pill. It is a pill to rely pn, Properly used it will cure constipation, biliousness, sick headache, and the other ills that result from torpid liver. Ayers pills are not designed to spur tho liver into a momentary activity, leaving it in yet more incapable cpndition after the immediate effect is past. They are compounded with tho purpose of toning UP the entire system, removing the obstructing conditions, and putting the liver into proper relations with the restjrf the organs for natural operation, Tbo record of Ayer's Pills during the half century they have been in public use establishes their great and permanent value in all liver affections, Cathartic Compound Poivor Sprocket. The compound power sprocket which is illustrated has brought out many comments and much discussion as to the actual value of the third or power sprocket. The wheel is equipped with two chains and four sprockets. Chain runs direct from a large crochet on the crank to one of equal size midway between the crank hanger and rear axle. Attached rigidly to this middle aprock- ,et, or, as it is termed, power sprocket, Is a small sprocket over which the chain runs to sprocket on rear axle. The effect claimed by the patentee is that additional power is gained in proportion to the '.nearer diameters o£ the two extra sprockets equal to the addition of the difference in diameters being added to the length of cranks, Thus, if diameter of power sprocket be seven inches and the diameter of speed oprocket be five inches, the power gained is equal to that which would bo gained by-adding two inches to the Fred Gerlach, of Chicago, to that office. His selection by Chairman Motl meets approval. He is twenty-eight years old, and has been prominent in wheeling affairs for ten years. He is a resident of Dlxon, 111., and received a legal education in Chicago. He possesses a deep knowledge of tho sport, and, like his-predecessor, abhors sham amateurism. He Is conscientious, energetic and has the faculty of making and retaining friends, Dixon is an advocate of divisional option regarding Sunday racing. As a delegate to the national assembly at Albany last February he fought hard to have the conference recognize the 'claims of the West and South. Falling in his effort, he recently prepared an amendment to the racing rules which, if adopted by his associates, will have a salutary effect. His plan .Is to allow Sunday racing if a majority of the members In any division signify a desire for it. Ho will endeavor to placate the disgruntled divisions where secession from the L. A. W. is being urged. It is safe to predict that his term of office will be marked by firmness and fairness. HOW FLOWERS WERE NAMED. Tho fuchsia is named after Leonard Fuchs, a noted German botanist. The begonia was named in honor of M. Begon, a French patron of botany. The name of 'jasmine is preserved with, little change from the Arabic, ysmym.

The members of the National Cyclists' Union of England demand a change in the record system. An officer of the organization In the "Bicycling News," of London, says: The necessity for a better understanding upon the question of unpaced records is imperative, This has become the more obvious since the N. C, U, in Its wisdom has, by restricting pacing instruments as regards amateurs to singles and tandems, practically prevented those who do (or rather should) ride for honor and glory and the love of the sport interfering with.any of the fig- .urea at present on the book; at least as far as the half-day is concerned. The present system, which but for a certain famous track boomer wouk" have been dropped long ago, Is artificial in the extreme. It, Jn the eyes of all but interested parties, js simply absurd that a man should be credited with a record which he woulc} have had not the slightest chance of making without the aid of others.
