Remarkablo Inirastigation From Which
tnt? Loyall Diamond Bicycle Gams
Oat Ahead of All Competitors.
"Where there nro so many ma'ces ot bi
cycles on the market, all ot willoh at first
sight seem to he oa un equal foot ins to tho
casual observer, and still the tact is well
known tbat thoro is no article in common
ns? where it is so onsy for the manufactur
er to cover up the Imperfections as in tho
bicycle, both in material and workman
ship, and which cannot bo detected until
the machine has been given a test uu the
road, such an Investigation as bas just
been completed by tho be3t experts in the
country, under the supervision of the
Western Roviow of Commerce, is likely to
be of great value to tho riding public. Tho
honor of producing tho best wittel among
the thirty-seven woll-kaowa makes that
were tested fell to the old established house
of John P. Lovell Arms Co., of Boston, Mass.,
manufacturers of the celebrated Lovell
Diamond. Tho investigation was mado

leading makes. The machines wero nil
marvels of tho most recent Ideas of me
chanical construction," and were brought
together without the slightest Intimation or
knowledge to the manufacturers that such ti
test was to '.ike place. The practical expert:
composing the Investigating board gradually
weeded the machines down to a small p'
ber, and, after several days of ^careful bat
ing of the relativo merits bf the ma
chines, they were unanimous in their
verdict that the Lovell Diamond was un
doubtedly the best wheel made and so re
ported to tho paper, the president of which
Immediately wrote the J. V. Lovell Arms
company informing the latter of the investi
gation made and the decision reached, and
this was the first intimation that the Lovell
company had of tho matter. Tho
statement that the Lovell Diamond is tho
best bicycle built is based upon the fact
that every part of the machine is made at
their own factory. Previous to and includ
ing 1896 tho machine bearing tho name
of the Lovell Diamond was manufactured
tor tho John P. Lovell Anns Co. by out
side parties, but beginning with the season
of 1897, overy part of every machine bearing
their name plate has been constructed at tho
factory of tho John T. Lovell Arms Co. at
South Portl nd, Maine. This fact easily
accounts for the proven supremacy of the
"Lovoll Diamond*' over all other leading
makes of the world. The Lovell Arms Com
pany have three stores in Boston, Washing
ton street. Broad street and Massachusetts
avenue, and brunch stores in Worcester,
Mass., Providence, B. L, Pawtucket, B. I.,
Portland nnd Bangor, Mo., besides having
agent? in nearly every city and town
throughout tho country. Their new cala

. Whence Comes the Cat?
It is impossible to trace the origin
of the domestic cat with certainty to
aDv existing specie or variety cf wild
cat, indeed, says the Boston Journal,
the time at which the cat was lirst do
mesticated nnd introduced to human
Bocicty is simply a matter of conjec
ture. Prof. Shaler expresses the opin
ion that the domestication of the cat
must have been much later than that
of the dog, while naturalists give rea
sons for bolieving to the contrary.
Advantages of Broad Tires.
Most farmers understand that the
use cf broad Avagon tires gives an ad
vantage in the matter of a lighter
draft, and, ns they are usually mount
ed on low frames, au advantage is
gained in loading and unloading. The
broad tires pull much lighter on paved
streets, gravel road.i and dirt roads in j
all conditions except when soft or
muddy, in such cases tho narrow tires
are to be preferred. For use on the
farm, in meadow lauds, corn lands
and in fact on all kinds of lund in all
kinds of shape, the broad tire shows a
lighter draft and is to be preferred.

Effect of Wido Tires.
"Generally the roadbeds at this
time of the year are very rough aud
uneven," says the Sauger ties (N. Y.)
Post, "but through the village at
present they are very smooth. This
is caused by the wide tires with which
all wagons carrying heavy loads are
now equipped. No one would want a
more convincing proof of the good

Missouri Itond Convention.
A large and harmonious convention
in St. Louis spent two days in debat
ing the road question. The principal
questions were the most feasible
means of improving the highways, the
best method of utilizing tho labor of
criminals, misdemeanants and tramps,
and plans for submission to the Legis
lature. A committee of fifteen was
appointed to suggost a method of fu
It was resolved that the ninety
counties in tho State which arc au
thorized to levy a tax of sixty cents
for county purposes be asked to set
aside one-third of it for road improve
ment. If this was made law, good
roads would be built. A resolution
was adopted asking the submission of
a constitutional amendment permit
ting county courts to increase the tax
levy for road purposes, and another
resolution in favor of a State highway
commission. The Missouri Poad Im
provement Association was invited to
unite with their organizati? , and it
was decided to hold the next conven
tion in St Louis.
To Locate Komis Properly.
Tho importance of locating a road
correctly at tho outset, according tc
competent surveyors and thorough ex
amination, can hardly be over-esti
mated. Where roports are mado by
viewers to some superior body with
whom the final decision rests, it is of
great importance that tho viewers be
liberal minded, intelligent and jmblic
spirited, aud that one of them should
always be a thoroughly competeut en
gineer. A full report of every exam
ination should be made, and should
contain sufficient data to make it pos
sible to base an intelligent and accu
rate opinion on it.
Deputy Secretary of Agriculture
John Hamilton, of Hamilton, Penn.,
is endeavoring to secure better work
in this direction, and has prepared the
following form of report, with tho ob
ject of securing full and explicit infor

M. Martel, thc well-known French
cave hunter, has explored an "aven,"

immense hall, sloping downward, and
at the lower end a "virgin forest'* of
stalagmites, resembling pine and palm
trees. Many of them are v?rv' beau

height, reaches nearly to the vault of
the cavern. Nothing like this forest
of stone has been observed in any

Many Common Superstition:;.
The world is indebted to folk-lore
for the preservation and transmission
from remote ages of customs, usages,
rules, principles and precedents to an
extent of which it is impossible to
form an adequate idea. It goes back
to the primitive conce2>tions which
have been taken up into the thought of
oivilized Nations and interwoven into
their religion and philosophy. There
are yet those who believe in unlucky in
fluences of the moon, in unlucky days,
such as Friday; in unlucky numbers,
such as thirteen. In numbering the
state room doors of first-class steam
ships aud the apartment doors of lead
ing hotels the fateful number thirteen
is studiously omitted. The horse chest
nut, the rabbit's foot and the potato
are still carried in the pockets of the
credulous. That crescent-shaped pro
tection against evil spirits, tho horse
shoe, is still nailed over doorways.
Charms and amulets aud talismans arc
still worn, the fashionable form to-day
being tho four-leaved clover. The
mascot is not the exclusivo possession
of tho gambler, nor is its antithesis,
the voodoo, tho inheritance of Creole
communities only, while tho records
of the stage show that actors still have
their Jonahs. The witches' cauldron
is something more than a fading mem
ory. Dreams aud premonitions have
not lost their alleged significance.
Spectral illusions are still perceptible.
Still clings the impression that "com'
ing events cast their shadows before."
The horoscope still claims a bearing
upon human destiny. The divining
rod is still used in search of subter
ranean springs or metalliforoas de
posits. St. Swithin is still clerk? of
the/weather for forty days after July
15. Young people still stand under
thc mistletoe. The asserted contigu
ity of red-haired girls and white horses
is still a popular jest.-Dr. C. C. Bom- I
haugh to the Folk-lore Society.
Tho Cunio of "Jiuzi."
"Buzz" is a rather lively game. The
guests are seated around the dining
table. The one at the head of the
table begins by saying "one," the next
"two," and so on; only the seventh
person and every multiple of seven
must remember to say "bazz" instead.
If they fail to do this they drop out
of the ring, and tho next begins with
"one" again. The sport of the game
is to remember "seven" or thc mul
tiple, viz., fourteen, twenty-one, twen
ty-eight, thirty-five, and so on. The
one who holds out tho longest is pre
sented with a prize, and the first to
fall out of the ring wins tho booby

A Lawyer's Candor.
The Jato Sir Frank Lockwood, of
England, left a rather enviable reputa

after defending in court a man who
had furnished a very satisfactory alibi,
Sir Frank went for a walk in the cir
cuit town, and met the judge who had
presided. Addressing him, the judge
said; "Well, Lockwood, that was a
very good alibi." "Yes, my lord,"was
the answer; "I had three offered me,
and I think I selected the best."
