Has Attracted Much Attention on Chicago's Boulevards, M.l«« Kdna Morrli to Not to He Detorred . from Ibe Sport or Wheullne by EJtn — How Stic Learned to Ride. "The blind g-Jrl en a. bicycle" has been a figure of interest to Chicago wheel- dom during the last fortnight. She had been seen first, in Washington park and afterwards over on the west side, but it was several days before the discovery was made that the sights and scenes through which she passed were not a part of the enjoyment she evidently took in riding. Her first appearance was inndc on» quiet morning when passors-by on tlir. Michigan boulevard wore few. Slip pedaled along by 'the side of a young man, scarcely more'than a- lad, but noticeably attentive to her. He always kept hold of her handle bar, and it was his constorit attention Unit first attracted notice to her. Since the young- woman and In-r attentive escort first appeared in the Chicago boulevards they have become well- known fpgures to the cyclists who haunt the parks. She is Hiss Edna Morris, 17 years of age, whose home is at Crcston; la., and who is now visiting 1 relatives in this city. Her escort, Arthur Hartinann, is her cousin, nnd he enjoys the distinction of being the running- mate- to a blind cyclist, in the streets and parks of Chicago. Although totally blind Miss Morris is an enthusiastic wheelworaan. Of her experiences she. said to a Chicago Tribune reporter: ; 'I am by no means the first blind girl to ride a'wheel. In Iowa City, where I went to school, there arc two other blind girls who ride and three-or foul- young men. One of our professors, who is also blind, hnd learned to ride a wheel, nnd he was always talking-about, tlw g-ood exercise it afforded. "One of the girls who learned before I did had a room next to mine, and used to keep her bicycle in the hullway. One day I took it to my room and felt it all over. It seemed to me that it wns risky for a blind girl tn try to ride a thing liki that, but. one dny this girl rorle her wheel along the road by the side of r. buggy in which I was ridinj gShe kept up to the horse-and talked'tome as shn 1 fliink it wai. llii.s iiu-idont that ' me'toiifideriw to U':irn lo rioV .1 v/lu'i-l. "1 will ncvi'i- foriret my first sensation M-lu'ii I moiuitod tiit seat. It seemed as iC'l! was away up in the air, and.when I Key moved IDC .1-. lung T fclt as if I .wns in a swing!.. J'Jut 1 gre.w til lilrt it. right :iway. ami before my third lesson was finished I could "balance the wheel pretty we.ll. -As soon as I could ride at all "i wai cra/y to ride out o£ doors, and was not content until I did so. , ' . "My first attempt in the street inspired more confidence. .My teaclv.-r ]ed me out to the middle of the road, and went up and dawn-two or thr« times ivii.'.i me, so mat I comn u-aro im- surface. Then lie. let me go. lie lav* close by mo. but I did go alone auO didn't run into anyt.iiing and didn't take a header." Miss Morris went, on to say thats'io had never taken a. he:,der. "I gue.ss there are not many girls who can say that," said she. "So yon fee there are some compensations in lv;ing blir-d. You have to be waited on nnd tah«m care of." At this point young Master Harl- mann volunteered the information that it was no trouble at all to <nl;e care of her. "I had always heard of Chicago as such a fine place, for wlio'-'.mcn. and I made up my riind to try it some time. I have bad that in ;;iy 'mind dui". ing the whole three years that I,haio been riding. 1 have been out nearly every day. We usually go in the morning. I am not afraid of the crowds.hu; I dor.'t believe -in running any mori risk than necessary." . • Miss Morris' description of the benefit;! she derives from wheeling is particularly interesting. She says it iu- crenses'her confidence ir. nil kinds of locomotion. 'She says she walks bct- ter'becausc she is in tbe habit, of moving so fast when riding. She likes tc •be"out in the air and to hear the bustle all around her. "We went, away up Michigan avenue pnst the Auditorium one day," she' said, "and I knew perfectly well when we came to the lake fro^t. I know Twelfth street, by tho car tracks, nnd I know when wt swing around into •Washington park by the curve.we take. I am still better acquainted on the West, side, for- we have ridden more there. 1 think I could call every track crossing on Washington boulevard." Some people ma.y wonder what becomes of all the peach .stones, knowing, of course, that there must be great quantities of them, from the millions of bushels of penches grown from year to year and sold in the markets. Peach stoiies were formerly bought by several nursery firms of Baltimore, who, in turn, dried and assorted them, and sold large quantities in the south. The state of Georgia, took a. great many; BO also the west, especially the state, oif. Michigan, and, in fact, wherever it was thought peach orchards could be set out to advantage. Then the whole- Bale drug-gists took them, but in limited quantities, for their prussic acid ingredients. Tlvsy were nls-o stored by the packers, • ni-d sold at about $3.50 per cartload of, say, 25 bushels, and those not sold in the manner mentioned were used for fuel in, the/ winter after they were well 'dried. But this year there see-ms to be no demand for them, and. packers' who- have room to- do so are drying them for fuel. .

However, the "'15- rigible balloon'' is designed only lor purposes of observation and communication with neighboring points during- military operations, and not for polar research and trans-Atlantic voyages. In its own special field, however, it certainly ought to prove highly efficient, except during the prevalence of hig-h winds.

Moreover, the occupiiail.s of- the two vessels could bo. placed i" telephonic communication with nieh other. The Frenchman propose* to use the balloon as an observatory, whence the position. a.ml siMngt.li of the cntanj- could be more readily perceived' (he imagines) than from the-con- ni-ng tower of a submarine boat, and he would have the operations of tbe other twin directed from hi.soerial post.
