The colored IndUidual ts one of the
most frequent isaors tlie marriage li
cense clerk lias. Iu fact, though there is
no positive way of determining, it is a
safe estimate to say that one half or
the marriage licenses issued arc taken
out bj colored people.
In mauy Instances, however, the 'col
ored minister who calls to make return of
the marriage is more ludicrous than the
loier who bought the license. '
Only yesterday one of tho clerks dis
coered in an equity docket, where only
tlie proceedings In suits In equity are sup
posed to be enrolled, a minister's return
of a inarriage he had celebrated. The re
turn was made on the Gth day of Decem

bis name to the.entry.
Another species of marriage license ap
plicant is the soft young man. He who

LIAS LOTS TO TELL.
It is an cent in his life to take out a
marriage license. He imariably lingers
alwut the clerk's desk and grows communi
cative. There Is a weariness In bis talk
though, and the clerk lias that glad feeling
aftirbe Is gone, like the feeling that comes
over one when one's neighbor's dog lias
been mysteriously poisoned.
Numbered among the others who seek
licenses is tbe bashful young man who
seasons bis parelonable-bashfnlness with
the unpardonable essences of a fool.
"I came after a marriage license," be
tells tbe clcrt.
"What Is your name?"
"Ob, It isn't for me; it is for my friend,"
and he tells Ills "friend's" name.
The clerk busies himself in making the
entry, and then asks:
"And who are you gofngjlo mirry?"
And tbe young man innocently tells her
name and forgets that he lied.
"Thcro is no age-limit In the matrimo
nial field," said one of tbe clerks. "The
other day a colored man of seenty asked
for a license. Heliad noer been married.
The girl be was to marry was Just passing
twenty. He said he bad a little house and
lot she might hai e v, inn he was gone. She
probably thought of that before be did."

BOWLI.VG SHAS-ON ntOSPi:CT8.
The lKiwIlng Reason Is looked forwanl
to with considerable Interest, as the strug
gle for the local championship promikes
to be a hot one. Tlie Carroll Institute
team with its new alleys to bowl on will
make a mighty effort to again laud Ilia
championship which it now proudly holds,
and with Its strengthened team and
stronger bowlers In each of the other of
last season's league teams, brilliant bowl
ing may be rsiHtleil throughout the long
serlis of championship games.
A nunilMT of changes will be made In
the several teams and new material will
be sceu cm a majoritj of the league teams
and these will ha emucb to do to eip Ihcir
relatliely good positions as theclir-aiisof
last year lefttliem.
Of course nothing can lie Mid a to the
make-up of the seieral teams litcause they
hae not Jit been chosen, nearly all the
clubs will chose tilt lr teams from among
llieplayirs who in. ike tlie beH showing lu
a ghen number of test games.
This siim creates at orce on Interest
ami a stroig riialry and itroug bowling
may beexpcLteil in tln-eprtliinina ry garni s,
the prize in cacli contest licing a place on
this or that team to-day In the league
serlis, an bouor coieted by many aspiring
twlrlers of the wooden sphere.
Tlie ipiestlon of baling a footliall club
to represent the Columbia Athletic Club
is still a mooted one with the chances
in fat or of there not being one. Teams of
this kind are an expensive adjunct to a
club and without prospects for games
with other teams from which certain
and sure profit may be expected. It would
be useless expense to maintain one. Of
course, looking at it from an athletic point
of view there should be a team for the
ake of the sport and the pleasure of
plaing tho game, but no organization, not
even the college athletic associations,
li.uo their teams for ths mere sport, but
they have them for profit as well.
As Georgetown College will not have a
football team this season, as stated in
the Times several months ago, and as
its game with the C. A. C. on Thanksgiv
ing was a fixturo which drew out thou
sands of spectators and "rooters" and
which brougbt handsome returns into the
coffers of the two-organizations, the C.
A. C. therefore is unwilling to take any
chances for iu outlay with any team from
elsewhere In which there is no local In
terest, It therefore has a good reason
for not lialng a team as games with vis
iting teams before and after Thanks
giving always resulted In a loss of money.
Athletically speaking there Is but little
going on at the club. A number of the
reguLirs are beginning to take exercise
and practice in tlie gym. Other than this
no regular work Is done, i(ending the de
cision of the board of goernors as to the
appointment of a successor to Prof. Cross
ley. At the lioallioue there is-some activity
In pleasure rowing. The only crew which
takes regular spins is the four-oared shell
crew, the "Ilasbecnolas," consisting of
Zcigler, stroke; Kerr, 3; V.'ard, 2, and
Elder, bow. The crew rows In good form
and lias some, speed. Capt. Eakcr an
nounces that a hop at the lioathouse and a
barge party on the same eening, to be
given next week will cloe the rowing
season at the C. A. C. boatbouse.

and Practice Riding
17th and C
In opening- this popular athletic ground for bicycle
instruction anil practice riding' we are offering' to the
"Washington public the ideal place of this country.
Within five minutes' walk of the State, War and Navy
building- we have an inclosed area of over 100,000 square
feetr encircled by a bicycle track with high banking', so
that our riding- .surface is without posts, walls, fences or
obstructions of any kind. The surface has been scraped
and rolled until it is as smooth as a billiard table.
Tnside the race track we. have laid out a cycle path
twenty-five feet wide, which will be reserved for practice
riding- bj- the more proficient riders or by those desiring
to get the benefit of this health-giving exercise avv.ty from
the publicity of the open streets and roads.
. Instruction in Riding,
Within the oval there will always be present a corps
of competent instructors, who will not only teach the ele
ments of riding, but will pa- particular attention to form
The historic old Van Xess mansion stands at the edge
of the track, anil the parlor will be fitted up as a ladies'
sitting room, with dressing and toilet room attached.
Notwithstanding- the great expense in securing- this
field, preparing it for bicycle use, and furnishing- the
mansion for the comfort of our patrons, we have deter
mined to reduce the price of instruction, believing that
the greatly increased patronage will demonstrate the wis
dom of such a move.

More About u $50 Wheel.
In last Sunday's Times I called the at
tention of tbe public to the fact that there
no longer existed any necessity of paying
$100 tor a bicycle, lnvltlcp; their criticism
to tbe wheels I tias iiffcrinp; at $50, and
the ready 6ale I found, substantially
proved that the public ajrrced with me.
Aly little "ad" rather tickled the few so
called "standard makers;" they, too, be
Kln to realize that a good wheel can bo
sold at $50. ard the public, t'-ring of burn
ing up good money, realize It too
This week I offer a replenished &tock of
ladies' and men's wheels, lightweight,
durable, un-tcdate in every feature. Guar
anteed for one year aerain't Imperfections
of material and manufacture, at same
price, $50, and I do cot place a limit of
one wheel to a customer ta ratcb penny
