THE FIRST BICYCLE RIDER.

"I rode the first bicycle in America.
If any other man claims to have dono
so, 1 would like to hoar from him, but
I don't believe there is such a man."
So says Mr. John William Tyler, of
!l East Monroe street, Tho pioneer of
tho millions who now flit on wheels all
over this broad continent Is n middle
aged man, well built, with dark hair
and eyes. In early life Mr. Tyler was
a gymnast. He is now a jeweler. Dur
ing his apprenticeship as a jeweler ho
was a reader of thc Scientific Ameri
can, in which magazine ho one day
came across a paragraph which Inter
ested him very much. It dealt with
tho improvements made to tho bicycle,
or velocipede, as It was then called, by
tho brothers Hanlon, who were sur
prising Paris by their exploits on tho
At this tlmo tho riding of a bicycle
was considered rather as a gymnastic
exorcise, to bo undertaken only by the
very skillful. Thus It appeared to Mr.
Tyler, and he at onco ordered a veloc
ipede from tho advertised manufac
turer namely, Calvin Witty, of 03S
Rroudway, Now York, who had pur
chased the patent from tho Haitians.
Said Mr. Tyler:
"After having waited about threo
months tho velocipede came nt last. It
came e. o. d. with a bill for sixty dol
lars and a letter from the manufactur
ers stating that I had given them their
first order and the cause of tho long
delay was their not being ready to
manufacture. From the illustration
of the machine I thought it would cost
only ten or fifteen dollars, and I wns
not ready to pay sixty. A friend, how
ever, canto to my relief and paid tho
bill, telling me that l could give exhi
bitions on the machine and iu that
way soon bo able to pay him back,
which I did, there being plenty of peo
ple in America willing to pay for the
privilege of seeing a man ride a veloci
pede. I hired an inclosed arena ami
people paid to cotno in and see mo ride,
and that fall I established a velocipede
school in Wilkesbarre. My wheel at
tracted much interest, became so pop
ular, in fact, that articles in referunce
to it appeared in a great many news
papers." Chicago Inter Ocean.
