For nearly thirty yours Mr.
Hilliard has been an exhibitor in

Tho following year ' Un Marais

In 1884 Mr. Hilliard returned
to America and opened a studio
in Boston, bringing with him a

SUPERIORITY. OF THE
The Scientific American.
which everyone acknowledges
ui uic leuumg Mzieruiuc paper
in the United States, devotes
nearly a page of its issue of
January 4th to the considera
tion of bicycles. It selected
the Tribune as the highest
type of the best American
wheel made today. It says:
"Within the past three years,
the American bicycle industry
has grown up to dimensions
whicli fairly entitle it to be
considered representative of the
country and of the day. Every
day sees hundreds of wheels
of high and low grade made in
the factories of this country for
the American and foreign mar
ket. Three years ago the
English bicycle was consider
ed by many the best wheel,
and the possessor of such was
apt to consider himself better
equipped than his friend who
rode one of American manu
facture. Now, all is changed.
A visitor to England or to the
Continent, if a cycling enthu
siast, cannot fail to be impress
ed by the superiority of Amer
ican wheels as contrasted with
the foreign ones, and no wheel
man really au fait in his sub
ject would dream of buying
his wheel abroad, so superior
is the American make. The
industry has brought about an
enormous development in the
manufacture of special tools
and of parts of bicycles.
Many assumed bicycle man
ufacturers simply buy these
parts and do their own as
sembling. But for the produc
tion of the absolutely high
grade American bicycle, a
factory is required which will
turn out practically all the
parts of the wheel manufac
tured, for unless such is done
one concern cannot be answer
able fpr the perfection of the
We select as the representa
tive of such a factory the works
of the Black Manufacturing
Company, of Erie, Pa., a com
pany which produce the high
est grade of wheel and which
put it on the market purely on
its merits without the adventi
tious advertisement of paid
riders. The wheel made bv
this company, the "Tribune
Bicycle," embodies the best
possible practice and is corres
pondingly free from structural
variations of unproved merit."
Such praise from such a
high source should satisfy any
one of the superior merits of
the Tribune wheels.
We have them in all varieties
of the 1896 patterns, in Tan
dems, Racers, Ladies oT gents'
wheels, and shall be happy to
show the 1896 improvements
to intending purchasers.

A AVouilcrful I.lulilliou.c.
In the lamphouBo of tho Gov
ernment lighthouse station, Tomp
kinsvillo, Staten Island, is housed
tho most wonderful light in tho
world. Tito light itself stands 1C
foot high, tho faco of its bull's-oyo
in 9 feet across, and,its lonses aro
as much as 4 inches thick. It is
capable of flashing a ray of light
equivalent to tho power of 250,
000,000 candles, and tho distance
from which it can bo seen on
clear nights is practically limited
only by tho curvaturo of tho
oarth. Tho flash will have the
intensity and blinding glaro of a
stroke of lightning.
That part of tho light which re
volves weighs 15 'tons, and so ex
quisite is the mechanism by which
it is moved that tho prossuro pf
fingers will turn it. A child could
control tho machinery, and tho
motive power which propels it is
a singlo bit of clockwork encased
in a box two foot square. Tho
light consists of two concavo discs
about 8J feot in diamoter. Theso
discs aro placed back to back
about a foot apart, and in position
look like tromoudous double con
vex magnifying lonsos, so largo
that they could not be cast in two
singjo pieces, and had to bo built
up in segments, and tho whole
strung together in a great iron
skeleton. And this, in point of
fact, is precisely tho caso.
Back to back tho lonsos inclose
a hollow interior, into which is
thrust a powerful electric light.
This light of itself is about 7000
candlo power. Whon its light is
projected through theso liugo
magnified prisms its power is in
tensified moro than 35,000 times.
It is altogether beyond tho human
immngination to grasp tho possi
blooitect of 250,000,000 candles,
which is tho illuminating power of
this now lighthouse wondor. At
tho present time tho finest oil
lamp which ingouuity has been
ablo to devise may bo seen on a
clear night somo 35 or 40 miles at
sea. This now light may bo soon
at a point 120 miles away.
