St. Ongc was approached one day by
Col. Tope of the I'ope Manufacturing

plained that he had already presented
tho lady with a tandem. Mr. St. Ongc
was not slow to accept tho responsibili

Mute Most Enthusiastic.
"I could see that Miss Keller was
very enthuslnstle over the prospect of
works display at Manhattan Reach for
a long time. In 189S, at Washington,
D, C he rode a wheel ot fire In front ot
President McKInlcy's carriage as tho
latter was driving out of the park.
The horBes of tho President's guard
were very much frightened nnd Btnrted
off on a run. The papers enmo out

ment that Fourcher was the first nnd
only one who had ever put the Presi
dent's guard to flight.
Stops Runaway Horse.
In Charleston, S. C. Fourcher stop
ped a runaway horse without dis
mounting from his wheel. He simply
rushed up, took hold of the bridle
ond kent going, slowing down gradu
ally and finally bringing the animal to
a full stop.
Ho has a very bad habit of riding
down n flight ot stairs a hundred feet
In height and two hundred nnd fifty In
length. Ho also rode down the steps
of the Capitol building at Washington,
some time ago and got the papers alt
over the country talking nbout him.
A few years ago, he traveled through
the t'nlted States on a bicycle, riding
fifty miles In each State and Territory.
Hawaii was not then a part of tbo
Sea Wall on One Wheel.
At St. Augustine, Fin.. Fourcher
rode from ono end of tbo sea wall to
the other with the front wheel of his
bicycle In the air. During the same
trip, he rode down the steps of the old
fort of St. Augustine. He might pos
sibly do something startling in Hono

tho mastery of her new task. She
mounted without auy tioublc anil
when we first started out, we went very
slowly, for 1 wished the young lady to
get uted to the machine gradually.
After we had gone two miles, Miss Kel
ler was perfectly at ,home on tho tan
dem nnd lode with all the confidence
In. the world. We went fourteen miles
on that day and upon arrival home,
Miss Keller said she did not feel In the
"The third ride we took was over
twenty miles. Ily this time, Jllss Kel
ler could tell If she were going up or
down hilt and, without my signaling,
Just what It was I Intended doing, so
Unit It was to me Just as it I were rid
ing along with a person who could hear
nnd see well. Upon coming to a
shaded avenue or some place In tho
woods, Miss Keller would know the na
ture of the country at once, Just from
the difference In tho atmosphere. All
this was simply wonderful to me.
Did Twenty-Eight Miles.
"For four weeks dally, I took Miss
Keller out for rides In the streets and
country roads about Ilostnn and, al
though she told me she enjoyed her
self dining every moment of these
rides, I feel sure that her enjoyment
was no more keen than mine. The
longest ride we took was twenty-eight
miles and this was dono In 2 hours.
This Is considered very good time for
n girl with her eyes wide open."
Two Cherished Letters.
Mr. St, Onge stopped for a moment
here nnd showed the Bulletin reporter
two letters from Miss Keller which
were written on n typewriter, a means
of communicating her thoughts to
those nbout her which she had taken

Chose Capable Man.
That Col, Tope choso a capable man
to give Miss Keller bicycle lessons la
beyond doubt. Had anything about
the tandem broken or had the young
lady been thrown by means of some
obstacle, there Is no doubt whatever
that he would have performed some
of the wonderful gymnastics which uro
to be seen ot the Orpheum nnd come
up from out of the dust with Miss Kel
ler on his shoulders, uninjured. He Is
appreciated here and evidently from
the following which Amy Leslie says
about him In the Chicago Chronicle,
be Is appreciated as well on the Main
land: ' '
Comical Tramp Act.
"Tho tramp bicycle net that gets
nev treatment at the Olympic this
week by one of the St. One brothers.
Ab ii contlnunnco of freshness In vau
deville must depend lu great part upon
the originality with which acts that uru
not new ore made to seem new, thin
.trump bicyclist Is to be commended
for his originality, his Industry nnd hi
acrobatic ability. The other St. Ongit
does the more difficult riding of the
trick bicyclists, Jumping obstacle,
playing polo, sitting on the bars nnd
the llko, while the tramp brother In
dulges In falls and somersaults. .
"This tramp brother is a romcdliin an
well as an acrobat and u bicyclist. He
makes the spectators laugh when he Is
not tumbling off bis wheel but their
npplause then Is nothing compared
with thnt given him when he executci
one of hit) complex falls. The way iu
which he gets tangled with tho ma
chine without getting tangled. Is In
gcnlous and funny. When their ludl
vldual tricks have been exhausted, tho
brothers combine for double work, the
two on ono machine. They relievo one
another at the pedals and climb around
the handle bars and over one another's,
backs and one has almost said
through tht wheels with the utmost
sang frold. Then us a parting exhibit,
the tramp rides his wheel backwards
for n while."
Here Is another from tho Detroit
"Tho peoplo generously applauded
the bill which was offered last night.
The thing that caught on best was the
bicycle riding ot the St. Onge brothers.
Ono of them, In tho familiar guise of a
Casino review tramp, succeeds to tho
happiest degree In showing what a
really funny thing u bicycle Is. At
first there Is considerable restraint be
tween the wheel and tho tramp, one
being painfully suspicious of tho other.
There ig a disposition toward friendli
ness, but the two have a great many
fallings out before they get on good
terms with one nnothcr. It Is thesa
little differences between them that
amuso tho audience so much. Tho
trump will bo saillrg around on tho
back of his mischievous friend, when
all of a Hidden tho steel Joker will
kick up its heels and land him on his
neck half way across the stage, lint
the tramp finally comes out victorious,
after a savago scrimmage In which tho
wheel gets tho strangle hold on him
and nearly tits him In a knot. Thlt
appears to make tho trump seriously
In 'earnest and he proceeds to do nil
sorts of things to the obedient machine.
The other brother Is likewise an expert
trick rider, nnd the act has the double
merit of being both funny and clour."
Fourcher a Wonder,
Theo. Fourcher, who Is known on
the stage as tho brother of Fred St.
Onge, Is no lets wonderful In tils par
ticular line. Ho was with I'aln'8 lire-
