LONG JIICYCLII HIDE.
From Xovv "York to Sin Franei-co In
Fort -flc'it Days.
B. D. Blakeslee and N. A. Winquist, two
wheelmen hailing from Chicago, started
from the City Hall, New York, yesterday , to
ride their wheels to San Francisco. They
ore m iking the trip on a wager, and must
reach t'iclr destination in IS dajs and IS
hours.
Tlie I rip is the longest one undertaken this
year. Tlie men are riding twenty-pound
wheels, and have hardened themselves
wllh as little luggage as possible. Aside
from nece-ssary clothing, this will comprise
a repair outfit and haversack. The greater
p-irt of the riding will be done by daylight,
but when conditions favor, the tourists will
push on by night, but at no time do they
expect to remain on the road from sundown
to sunup.
Tlie route to bo followed, as far as Chi
cago, will be over tlie same course, as that
taken by Kobcit Ecarles, in his last record
ride from that tity to tiie metropolis. Leav
ing Chicago, they will stick to the Santa
Fe route, and proceed direct to Los Angeles,
from which point the remainder of the
Journey to the Golden (Sate will be taken
up the coast. Blakeslee and his companion
aro enthusiastic over their undertaking.
They do not expect to experience any hard
ships, and count upon completing the trip
iu about forty-five days.

The coming to Wa'Mi.gton jcslerday of
Champion Corbelt was attended with
grave silence, llis'goiug was not marked
by any demonstration or sorrow.
The Corbelt party, which consisted of
the champion, Mrs. Corbelt, brother Joe
and Manager Billy Brady, anlvcd at:!:IO
Iu the afternoon, and took, quarters at the
Raleigh. The siiont ouly a few minutes
there, and then iiroceeelHl lo the llll

lull. After the game was over the quar
tette again repaired Iu the Raleigh. Iu
the evening they spent mi hour at a the
ater, and at lo.-io took their departure
for the South.
A Times reporter had a talk to Cor
lH.lt In his rooms at the hotel. When Inter
rogated as lo what he thought about Ids
ehaiiees with the distinguished Australian
pounder he assumed au air ot alisolute lon
rldence. He thought he would down ills
man. He said:
"Will I wlu?"liesald. "Well. J on can bet
jour lire on it," aud he leaned back In his
chair ami stretchid out Ins a nils with an
expression that said "Just give me a chance
at .Mr. Fit-."
Ills next remark ilissipjlisl any idia,
however, that he thought he had an iay
thing ol it in his coming battle.
"1 don't ev. mt )ii lo think mat I do not
appreciate the fait that I haven hard Job

the best man that 1 have tver met anJ 1

"Now this knee or mine," lie said, as he
laid his ha ml on the member that he hungcil
up when he took :i cioppe'roir of his when I
atAsburj Park. "tu.s given mea great ileal

"I would rather break an arm .-ill) time

"Willi that one except ion, however, I

"Do 1 think Hie light will come off?
he said in rep! to u query as to the

preventing the lultle taking place.
"Wliv certainly I do. 1 am Jut as

old stock expression peculiar lo Ihe pjgll
Istlcfrateriutv, but In my case It goes.
"I do not like the basiness, anil only went
into it for what there was In It. I have
victeedul In making money In it. and If I

me the rest ot in) lire.
"I will still stay In the show business,
however, unit Immediately after I meet
Fitz will go out em the roael with a. new
play. I have made most of my money in th
stiow business, ami as there is lots more
of It waiting around lo be phked up I
might Just as well have it as anyone else."
"Well." (slid Corliett. :es he rose ami
held out his liauil, "I don't like lo rush
you bovs off, but my wife is waiting to
co to the theater, and joii know we cannot
disappoint the ladies, ir we want to have
peace in the house-." ami Willi a parting
clasp or the hand he called his brother
Jcm' and bow eel his visitors out.
Corbilt left artcr the second act, anil
alter stopping at his hotel for a moment
drove to tlie depot, where he took the
lo 40 train for Atlanta.
The combination will make a stop of
a week in Atlanta, where they will show
nightlv. From tin re the') will go to Dal
las, where Corbett will train for tlie com
ing fight He will thus have ouly three
weeks In which to put In some hard work.
Next on the Eureka programme Is the
bout betweui Hilly Woods and George
Godrrev. Woods, has been working with
Faddy Gorman for the past t wo w eeks. and
fs nlready in good ph) skill trim, but he
will go into the country tills we-ek to put
on tlie finishing loaches. He will probably
be helpe-d in his work by Tcsl Alexander.
Ilile Peckhnm. having gotten through
with his work or trimming, up McMillan
for the Gorman meeting, is now out or a
job, nnd sa)s he Is ready lo tmet any or
the 140 pounders that the Eureka or anv
oitierclulimayseeflttiin".UUi Inniagaliist.
Peckhnm has been working steadily of
late fitting others for bouts, and Is hini
sclr in such sliapethat he could take on a go
Iu short order.
Kid McCoy wasamong the spectators who
witnessed tlie Gorman anil McMillan bout,
nnd expressed a vviti to match witli either
one or them. Neither Billy nor Paddy was
In tlie humor to take on another contract
immediately, but Fred Morris, who also
was at the ring, promptly informed Mc
Coy that he would be glael lo accommodate
hhn. McCoy, however, d"clined to meet
Morris on the ground tli.it he would not
fight a black man. It is probably a lucky
thing ror McCoy that Morris is black.
Ted Alexander protege, Jerry Marshall,
has gone to Texas Willi Peter Maher.
John Quinn. or Pittsburg, who Is Mailer's
backer, will furnish a right stirr bet ror
Jerry if any of tie 122-pounders Hunk they
can beat him. Quinn will shortly have an
nil nation righting combination if he keeps
on. He now has Mailer, the Irish cham
pion, nnd Jerry Marshall, the negro, and.
It Is said, may shortly become the man
ager or the Englishman, Arthur Valentine.
It was rumored around the city jester
day that Tim Hurst is lo be refiTee of the
big fight at Dallas, if it comes orr. It is
dollars to dimes that Tim doesn't rcicree
that mill. Fitzsimmons is dead against
Tim, nnd it Is quite like!) the risl-he-adi-if
man will have considerable to say on the
rereree qm-stlon vvjn-n the time comes that
one is needed.
Now that he is back in Baltimore, Kid
McCoy says he will agree to stop either Mc
Millan or Uornwn (n fifteen rounds. By tt
way, a dispatch from Colun-bus, Ohio, says
Ed Blake, the welter-welghl, ot that city,
"is anxious to hear from McCoy. Blake is
willing to furnish a satisfactory fight ordo
anything else within reason to get on a fight
wltlfMcCoy." Blake, who is one ot the best
men ot his pounds in the West, has lime and
again tried to get on a match witii McCoy,
but for some cause the Kid has been steering
clear of him witlTmarked regularity.
Tn his speech at Madison Square Garden
on Monday night Corbett said: "I am going
toTexas to train for my fight with Fitzsim
mons," which leads a New York expert to
remark: "Corbett certainly needs training.
He has had none. Ho is uot In condition.
He is big and fat. Great lasers of flesh are
on his sides and on his back. There is no
play to his muscles. It he hopes to be In con
dition by October 31 he will-have lo work
harder within the next few weeks than' he
everdld In his life before.
"That is the Judgment ot the best experts '
who saw him In his work in Madison
Square Garden during the afternoon and
evening.'
This is the night set for the twenty-round
bout between the Englishman, Valentine,
and Charley McKeevcr, of Philadelphia.
There is much Interest felt In. the meeting
because it Is "Valentine's first stand in (he
ting since bis arrival on this side.

"Can't walk nozer step. Golterest," he
soliloquized, as he seized the fleeting lamp
post with both bauds, swunround it and
slid gently down to the sidewalk. He
crawled on his hands and kr-ces till he
could reach his silk hat, which had landed
on the asphalt sidewalk with a thump and
bounced off into the gutter, then crawled
batk to the lamp post. t
"Can't walk nozzcr step," he ,repeated,
with a helpless shake of his head, which
dislodged his hat again. "I'll ring fer
coupe. Wherezh zat messenger box?"
and hesearcbed every pocket for It. "Won

Then lie raised himself to a shaky per
pendicular, and tried to ring the letter
box. He was unsuccessful in 'that, but
an Idea came to him.
"I'll ring rcr p'trol wagon. f Folne
ruan'll take me home.'
He fished out his citizen's keys, and
within half an hour managed to gel the key
In the box and turn it. Three minutes
later hair of the fire depart nient dashed up.
"Where is it?" shouted the driver of au
engine.
"Hereram. ol mau;glnimea ride home,"
shouted the inebriate. "Can't walk nozzcr

"Who rang in that alarm?"
"Who'er's-Kise? Me; me. I wanter ride."
The driver pulled up at a h)drant across

"That fellow's flue is burning out.

Digby Bell and the either ball cranks
ot his company no doubt thought the-y were
tickling the- friends of the Baltimore team
with a straw that would cost them noth

ing the Colonels a benefit if they would
take a game from Cleveland, and they per
haps Tilt that they had put their "root

the date on which the benefit would be
given.
At the next meeting of the National
League managers an el'ort will probably
Ik- made to do away w Itli tho Temple cup
series anil return the trophy to Mr. Temple-,
ami an exchange, commenting on
this, says that It appe ars that some or Ihe
magnates do not approve of hc Temple
cup scheme, because it is calculates!
It Is claimed, to incite irdirrerence among
those chilis that do not have a show to com
pete ror the prize by the time the season
is well advanced. It Is also said that there
has been too much advertising or Mr. Tem
ple to satisfy sonic of the magnates, anil
therefore they are in ravor of abolishing
the competition ror the cup and the nccom
iati)ii'g gate receipts, which, after all,
is the greatest incentive to the ballplay
ers. Now. It seems strahge that any mag
nate should object to the Temple cup
scheme, or any other scheme that Is cal
culated to stimulate tho competition
between the various clubs In the league.
If any condemnation is in order it should
be visited upon the magnates ror permit
ting an outsieler to do the "generous
act" by donating the cup.
w Cure for tho l'oker Habit.
"Let me tell you how I cured Osy or
poer playing" said the garrulous little
Joker, tapping tho piazza steps with her
daintily shod root.
"It was shortly alter our marriago that
the poker habit developed, and night arter
night I was left alone until unearthly
hours.
VOne night I lay awake counting the
clock strike, one, two, three, and no Osy
In sight.
" 'This thing has got to stop,' I said. In
the bureau drawer was a roll of prepared
mustard plaster. I cut off a big square,
moistened it and laid it uneler the sheet
on Osy's side of tlie bed.
' 'If he hasn't been drinking too much,'
I reasoned, 'he will discover it, and tlie
Joke -will be on inc. If he has imbibed too
freely he will roll Into bed and fall
asleep.'
"At a quarter of four his royal hlghnes3
appeared, much the worse for tlie night's
game. He was soon fsst asleep, while I
waited, delighted at the success of the
ruse until conscience began to prick.
"Tlie next morning I was awakened by
a piteous cry: 'Oh, my back; ray batk. I
never had such pain. Howln the d ldiel
I get it?" -
"Poor Osy praised about like an infuri
ated Hon. His bar: was one huge, red
blister." "Did he play poker again?"
"No," said the little joker. "Not for two
-reeks." New York Herald.

OCII1LTHKC AND STANLEY.
How the' FainoiifTe-xaii Impersonated
the Explorer.
As Stanley storie-s are In order. In view of
the great explorer correspondent's election
to Parliament, his succcssf ul ma ielen speech
and his vaiatlnn trip to this country, 1 must
tell of the Joke p!a)ed on him by Col. Tom
Ochiltree in 1S72. The last time I heanl
Ochiltree tell it was at Chamberlin's iu
Washington at a dinner given by J.M. Stod
dard, the publisher.
"I was in London," said Col. Oihlltree,
had gone ard found Livingstone, and the
Americans in town were anxious to give
him a royal welcomeon his return. Our ielea
Club, which was then tlie paradise ot
Beihcmians. John Bussell Young, who was
in Paris, agreed te waituponhim on hisar
rival there, anil Stiplien Flske, one of the
brightest men I ever knew, was to get up
the dinner. Tlie Savage Club proved un
available, anil we finally selce tcsl the Globe
restaurant, on Lcicc-ster Square, as the
place for the dinner. Tlie fe-c-el was to cost
2 a plate, although none or u had any
money to throw away. All of the arrange
ments were made, when a dispatch came
from Young saying that .Stanley could not
be there In time. Weelldn't know what todo.
Fiske was forgoing ahead; everything was
ordered, and wo must not let it spoil. Sud
denly he turned to me and said:
" 'Tom. l.ow are you up on Stanley and bis
achievements?"
"Why," said I, "I have been deeply inter
ested in all that he ever did not only from
what I have read, but from what Jim Ben
nett has told me and know them by heart."
"Good," said Fiske. "You must be Stan
ley for to-night. Wc will give the dinner to
you. Nobody bJt the commlltec will be In
the secret, nnd we will not give you away."
"But what will Stanley say?"
" 'Oh, he's a good fellow, and won't
mind.
"My protests were overruled. So I went
to the dinrer and was received as Henry M.
Stanley with great honor. My seat was at
the right ot the presiding orf leer, who was
Ed Sothern, who Idmseir acted the part of
Sir Roderick Murehison, president ot the
Koyal Geographical Society. Of course I
wnsi-alledou tospeak, and they said I made
the liest speech of my life, or Stanley's
either, for that matter. Even old stagers
who were In the conspiracy wept at my de
scription of my meeting with Livingstone.
It was very pathetic. Meanwhile it was
noised outside that Stanley was dining at
thcGlnbe, and when weeameoutthe streets
were e roweled f orsquares with people. They
iheereil me lustily. I lmwed to the right
nnd left most profoundly, nnd the more I
bowed the more they cheered. The JJttle fat
landlord hrought his wife and five children
out, and I blessed them one and all. I ended
the scene by Jumping Into n cab and driving
by a rem nda'oou t way to my club."
"And how elid Stanley take the Joke?"
"Well, the less said about that the better.
He arrived the next morning and was furi
ous. It was more than two or three vears
berore he forgave any of us." M. P. Hacely

Mllwauki-e. Wis., Oct. S- A rcmarka-'
ble case of double life has been revealed
In the court proceedings in the case of the
SIOO.OOO estate of II. A. .Martin, whodicil
August 2G, and who for a iiumberor years
was a prominent grain elealcr in the
board or trade- hero a ml iiiChicr.go.
Mr. "Martin lul a dual lire acel had two
ran-ilies. one here at el the other InChlcago.
August 31 Mary Ellen Martin, his
Milwauke-c wire, pctitione-d to have an ad
ministrator appointed. The hearing was
set ror )estcn!ay. when a woman claiming
to In- Anna 1I.J. Martin, or Chicago, put
loan account ainlclaltne-d the was common
law wife- or I). A. Jliirtiii, that she hail a

Martin hail lilt .1 will, which was tn
I e,.se ssimi of Mary I'llen Martin ami C.is
sius M. Paine, anil she asked for au order
requiring them to priHlucc the will.
Judge Mann granted the order and the
will was fdeel hi ttie court. It shows the
claim or the Chicago wu"e was correct, but
that some one hail atteiiipti-d to destroy
the will by tearing off the signature. Tho
will was made January 2. lSUt.
The will iKMiue-nths to Mary Ellen Mjrtin,
of Milwaukee, whom he married twenty

Although the signatures to the will were
torn off Judge Mann wa convinced of the
genuineness of the will am! at once ordered

The afrair has created a great sensation
in the society and business ilriles. In which
Mr. Martin moved, as lie was fcupposed tv

Ktixiakiix Vu-iluj; Away.
(From the Salt Lake Tribune.)
The natives of tthe Hawaiian Islands
and Honolulu, especially, view with sus
picion eve-ry movement of the white doc
tors on those islands. The choh-ra that is
now raging nt Honolulu Is the tulmination
of the natives refusal to obey the rules laid
down by the Honolulu health lioard.
The natives or Honolulu believe that
the white people are bent upon de-stroy-ing
them. Perhaps they ore nut wholly
to blame lor holding sucii an opinion.. A.
hair century ago the natives of the Ha
waiian islands numbered over lTu.000.
They have now elvvii-dled down to a
little less than 511,000. Civilization has
done but little for them. Slcce the advent
of Americans anil EureH.nns to thoso
islands they have oscome the victims ot
the most loaUi-some or European diseases.
The same may lie said of the Hawaiian as
of the Afrie-an, that they imbibe all the
viits of livilizatiou and but a small part
of its virtues.
' In another twenty five years a Kanakan
will be a curiosity in Honolulu. The rait-Is
passing away faster than the American
. Indian. The land that was once theirs will
' know them no more. The native fully rea
j lizes this. They, however, live a happy go
lucky klnel of a life. Their fate they have
acevpted as a matter of course. It is their
, belief that the whites on the Islands bava
combined together for the purpose of extex
mitiatiug them.

I "We hail a gull, a tame gull, with
clipped wings," says an English writer,
j "who would feed on fish If we would
give him any, failing fish, on raw meat,
! failing raw meat, ou worms and insects,
j ami falling these, on anything, lnclud
, ing sparrows. It was Ihe mot fascinating"
entertainment to give him au eel, for ha
woulel toss the eel about several wavs
until It came to the position most suitable
for swallowing, when he woulel swallow
It; but the eel not yet defeated, would
orten wriggle up In Ills gullet again, and
this process would be repeated many a
time. So, IT swallowing lie a delight, the
pleasure which our gull derived rrom the
process must have been maniroid. Even
tually the eel would weary of the vain
ascent ot the gull's gullet and consent to
remain in contact with the Juices of injec
tion. Sink lug a I'lnce for Shoes.
A new use has been found for the dis
carded summer parasol by an ingenious
woman, who removed one-half of It and
filled It with a flat back or pasteboard,
covering both tiiis and the outside of tho
tm.-iliiing half wllh cretonne tn match
the furnishing or her room. I"aih segment
is rurnLshed with a lining, which rorms
the pocket of a pair of dainty slippers or
shoes, anil as the j-ocket Is no deeper,,
than the length or the shoes, they are kept
in place. It may be covered with white
duck rrom au old gown that is no Iemger
serviceable, and edged with a fall of
coarse lace about the top. Use only a
small parasol, and If you have not a
frame of the right size you may fashion
an 'umbrella-shared bag so const ructeel
that the cHect will be that of a halt
opened parasol.
