ITHERTO it has remained for the bicycle papers to carry on the agitation in favor of increased facilities being given to cyc- liats traveling by trains. Now a railroad pub lica- tion, "Locomotive Engineering," is to come to their aid and talk sensibly on the matter of carrying wheels by train. While it deprecates the enactment of laws compelling railroad companies to carry bicycles free, it nevertheless thinks that the companies are largely to blame for any injustice that may be done them in this direction. "We believe," says this journal, "that railroad companies have adopted a very short sighted policy in throwing obstacles in the way of bicycles being carried. It is safe to say that every bicycle on a train means an extra fare to the railroad company, and the few companies that have encouraged the carrying of bicycles have received substantial benefits from the increase of t-avel. If railroad companies doing suburban business would adopt a more liberal policy toward bicycle riders they would profit from the same. It would cost very little to put up houses at the leading station*, where bicyclers could leave their wheels going to business in the morning and flnd them safe on their return. This privilege would enable the wheel rider to live further from the station without Inconvenience and the tendency would be to draw more patrons to the railroad company. Under existing conditions the wiser and craftier communities have discovered that by taking their wheel into the city with them every day they can get free storage for it at the surburban terminus and ride home from their own station every night, with no more trouble to themselves than if the thing were done in a simpler way. This practice is rapidly spreading in commuter circles, and it causes a vast amount of wholly unnecessary labor." and had little effect upon the camei-a trade. On the other hand In many cases the possibilities and attractions of the camera were first made known to the cyclist through the trips Into the country. His desire to recall the pleasant scenery of the rural districts after the image in his mind has faded r.way has resulted in countless instances in the purchase of a camera. For the camera expert the bicycle multiplies the range over which he may travel comfortably on his photographing expeditions. For the bicycle rider the camera is attractive because of its usefulness In collecting permanent souvenirs of enjoyable trips and occasions. The demands of the increasing number of cycle-photographers has led the luggage carrier manufacturers to design carrying devices that are especially convenient for carrying the camera- on the-bicycle. Some of the camera makers also supply bicycle attachments with their goods. Some cyclists, carry the camera upon the handle bar and others strap it upon the rear forks just above the wheel, while peculiarly cycling cameras are so construed that they may be suspended from the upper bar of the frame near the steering head. A day's ride through the country will show plainly how often the attractions of cycling and photography are combined. Hand cameras of the snap shot variety are, of course, the most satisfactory for carrying upon a wheel, as the tripod makes quite an appreciable encuir brancc. INVENTIONS.

L, to record not only the finishes, but the exact time of contestants in bicycle races. This machine is operated by a series of wires under a rubber band one-eighth of an inch thick and two inches wide, which covers the finish, or tape line. These wires are carried to a recording table placed in the judges' stand. A watch also electrically connected is placed under the table and started at the firing of the pistol, and Is stopped at the finish by the same electric connection that records the finish of the contestants. Immediately upon the contestants coming up the stretch a switch is turned and electrical connection made with the wirss under the rubber baud. A touch of a wheel on the rubber band registers each contestant in order of their finish. By the use of this contrivance dead heats are rendered impossible, as it is so accurately adjusted that the crossing of the tape is recorded instantly, no matter should the difference between the men be only one-twentieth ot a second. While this invention has had the approval of several prominent "L. A. W. officials, it can not be used officially until a revision of the racing rules Is made to admit it. W. W.

Write to Mrs. Pinkham, Lynn, Mass., and tell her all your symptoms. Her experience in treating female ills is greater than any other living person. Following is proof of what we say: " For nine years I suffered with female weakness in its worst form. 1 was in bed nearly a year with congestion of the ovaries. I also suffered with falling of the womb, was very weak, tired all the time, had such headaches as to make me almost wild. Was also troubled with leucorrhoea, and was bloated so badly that some thought I had dropsy. I have taken several bottles of Lydia E. Plnkham's Vegetable Compound, and several of 'her Blood Purifier, and am completely cured. It is a wonder to all that I got well. I shall always owe Mrs. Pinkham a debt of gratitude for her kindness.- I would advise all who suffer to take her medicine." — Mns. ANNIE CUBTIS, Ticonderbga, N. Y.

His first notable victory was over Harry Roberts,' of Sheffield, in a five-mile scratch race. The latter at that time held the Brld- lington Plate. In 1888 and 1889 ho met with good success, and until 1893 he rode as an amateur, winning some big races. Occasionally in his late amateur days Stocks would win four and five firsts nt one meeting. It was in 1803 he ijajvan to ride in record form. In that year he rode 25 miles, SCO yards in tho hour, which then stooil as world's record; in fact, it was the first time 25 miles had been ridden inside the hour. Later, in trying to create a new record for 100 kilometres, ho rode 25 miles 690 yards in the hour, and 48 miles 000 yards in two hours, which also stood as world's records. With G. E. Osmond, in 1893, he rode 2G miles 1G5 yards, unpaced, on a tandem, in the hour, indicating clearly that distance riding was his specialty. All these records wor<; made on the VIerrio Hill track, and, barring the 100-kilo- metre record, were accepted by the N. C. I. In 1894 he did little riding except to lower the 50-mile road record. In 1895 Stocks raised the world's hour record to 29 miles 45 yards. In 1895 he became a professional. Last year he made records'at short and long distances. Stocks rides ten to twenty miles every day while training. His diet consists of plain, wholesome food; he smokes occasionally and also takes an occasional drink. His gear varies from 00 to 119.

There is at least one class of dealers that has not as yet registered a protest against the popularity of bicycling. While theater managers, liverymen, jewelers, furniture makers, and a thousand and one others have been groan- Ing because of the effect of cycling upon their cash drawers, the dealers in cameras and photographic materials have been smiling over increased business and consequent prosperity. The combination of camera seems to be a perfectly natural one. The camera enthusiast has adopted the bicycle as by far the most convenient means of transportation available for his purpose. In this way the love for the camera preceded the love for the wheel That BlK Kuco. The preliminary arrangements for the big $5,000 race, to be hold at Boston on September 13, are about complete. The management is anxious to secure Michael and Lesna and two of the best American long-distance riders to take part. Limiting the entries to four riders is done with the object of creating new records. The conditions of the race are as follows: Distance undecided, but likely an hour contest; number of competitors limited to four; pacemakers and machines unlimited; purse $5,000 guaranteed, $3,000 to first man, $1,500 to second and $500 to third; entries closed on August 20; no entry accepted unless backed by a guarantee of $500 that the men entered will be fully equipped with machines; the men to ride the entire distance, unless an unforeseen accident occurs or they shall fall so far behind that they will be called oft' the track by the referee. All men riding under the latter condition will receive their money back. Entries are open to the world. The management reserves the right to reject all but four entries, which in their judgment will make the best race. The contestants will be allowed to have only two machines on the track at a time.
