GREATEST BICYCLE EIDE.
FROM CATFORD TO KHIVA, ?N TH?
HEART OF WILD TURKESTAN.
An Kn SM sh Cyclist Covered 4500 Odd
Miles Between April 16 and September
5-Some of His Stranjje Adventures
His Narrowest Escape From T>ei?tiu
The greatest bicycle ride ever ac
complished commenced oh April 10
and ended on September 5 in the pres
ent year of grace. The starting point
was the cycle track at Catford, th?
finish the city of Khiva-, right iii th?
heart of wild Turkestan, ard the cy
clist who between the dates specified
covered the 4500 odd miles separating
Catford from Khiva Avas Mr. K. L.
Jefferson, F. E. G. S., the well known
Before he started-, well-meaning
friends tm the continent endeavored
to dissuade him from undertaking
what they characterized as a ride to
certain death, but Jefferson had heard
the same thing before, thanked them
for their kind advice, completed his
arrangements to go ahead, and on
Saturday, April 16, set ont as special
/commissioner for the Cycle, to which
paper he communicated his experi
ences in the form of articles.
Belgium, Germany and Bavaria
were successively passed through
without any embarrassing experiences
or thrilling adventures apart from a
little wild I oar hunting on tue Ba
varian hills, and, iudeed, it was Hot
until he had left Hungary behind him
and crossed the Carpathians into Ga
licia that B?l\ Jefferson began to taste
the bitters of his journey.
Up to this point he had found the
roads ridable, tho inhabitants, if not
demonstratively affectionate, at most |
passively indifferent, and had been
generally welcomed wherever he
stopped by the cyclists of the towu,
who, as a body, treated him right
But it was different in Moldavia,
where every fifty yards or so a deep
gully intersected the roadway, so that
he had of necessity to ride with care
or smash his bike. It can be easily
understood that tue cyclists of Mol
davia are not scorchers, but the
teamsters are, and they'want all the
road. Their greatest amusement was
to endeavor to run Jefferson down,
aud many the time and oft he was
compelled to hurriedly dismount and
plunge into the ditch at the roadside
to avoid their sportive designs.
He owed the Galicien teamsters a
big debt on this score, and one day,
quite unexpectedly to himself und the
other mau, he repaid it. Two wag
ons were racing down a hill toward
him while he was carefully descend
ing a decline, at the bottom* of which
ran a small stream, crossed by a
wooden bridge. It looked as though
cyclists* and wagous would reach the
To avoid this Jefferson spurted a
bit and crossed the bridge first, aud
as he was passing the leading team
ster whirled his long-thonged whip
around above his head and cut at the
cyclist. His aim fell short. The
second teamster also prepared to
strike, but Jefferson rode straight afc
the horses, which took fright and I
dashed for the roadside. One of the
wheels caught the frail posts of the
sion. Woiu _
"barm" was stopping in a monj?a s
hut, and the whole village paid him a'
visit. One moujik even brought him
two eggs, another intimated that for
fifty kopecks a quart of vodki could
be brought. The money was pro
duced. Jefferson was held as. a great
man, a "bolshoi chelvack," the vodki
was purchased, everybody drank of it
excepting the women, and in the mon
jik's hut cpaite a convivial evening was
spent. It was a great night, such as
the monjik experiences but seldom.
Jefferson had much experience of
the czar's Jewish subjects. They cer
tainly know how to do one thing
well, and that is charge for any ac
commodation they provide. At Cher
ikor, a town of H000 inhabitants, Jef
ferson could only secure room in the
house of a Jew. Thither he repaired,
dined on three eggs and two pints of
milk, and slept.
Next morning he was asked for six
roubles-thiiteen shillings. He ar
gued; offered two roubles. The Jew
stood firm for six. Jefferson asked
for his bicycle. "No pay, no bicycle,"
said the Jew. Then there was a row
and Jefferson went for the 2)0b('e
The police master was asleep, so Jef
ferson sat on the doorstep of the po
lice station until he awoke. When
he did awake and learned the facts of i
the case and who the cyclist was, the
officer put ou all his uniform, hailed 1
two sleepy-looking policemen, and
went oft' with Jefferson to the Jew's |
abode. The Jew wanted to explain;
the policeman swept him into the
roadway, the bicycle ives produced
and Jefferson once more got under
The intrepid cyclist's narrowest es- ,
cape from death occurred on the road

miles away from the town when dark- 1
ness set in. The road was terrible,
full of ruts and covered with hug'?
stoues, and he bumped and banged
along in a manner truly awful. ,
Then, after descending a long hill. ?
Jefferson suddenly saw yawning at ?
Iiis very feet a great bhrck gap. He
realized that it was a gorge, the (

Piospects of international trouble
between England and France drew
public attention at Quebec not only to
the unconcealed protestations of sym
pathy with France on the part oi
several of the French-Canadian news
papers, but also to the apparent efforts

Stronghold at the entrance to the Gulf
bf St. Lawrence. Two or three years
ago li. Henri Menier; tho well-known
chocolate manufacturer of Paris; pur
chased from former Owners the whole
islaudof Anticosti, 130 miles in length,
on the 2Jreteuce that he intended to
make of it a hunting preserve. He
has since brought out a number of
settlers from France, established a
French colony ou the island, flies,tho
French flag on the armed yacht,
manned by men of the French naval
reserve, in which he journeys to and
from the island, and, finally, pays no
duties upon imports from Europe or
elsewhere lauded upon Anticosti.
M. Meuier has added to his civil
and military authority on the islam'
by the appointment of a Parisian, M.
Cormettant, as governor, Both he and
Meuier have so ingratiated themselves
with the French Canadian members
of the provincial government of Quebec
by lavishly entertaining them beth in
Quebec and also at Anticosti that
hitherto they have been permitted to
do pretty much as they like, and the
few English-speaking residents of the
island, whom M. Menier is doing his
utmosLto have deported, complain that
the Fr?nch governor rules the island
with a rod bf iron.
At Fox bay, near one end of the
island, seventeen English-speaking
families from Newfoundland, belong
ing to the Methodist church, have been
In iug peaceably for the last twenty
six years. Ever since faking posses
sion of Anticosti, M. Menier has done
bis" best to rid the island of these peo
ple, who gaiu a poor livelihood by
fishing oil' the dangerous coasts.
Other means of driving them from
their homes having pioved unavailing,
Governor Comettant had recourse to
the government. Upon being falsely
told that, the Fox bay people were not
bona fide settlers at all, but simply
pirates, smugglers and wreckers, the
government, without making any in
quiries, sent down a detachment of
police to enforce the French demands.
Armed with clubs, revolvers, and hand
cuffs, the police, aided by M. Menier's
men, surrounded the s;-itiers and
ordered them to quit the island imme
diately, although no shadow of legal
proceedings had been taken, and none
of the cjectiug party was in posses
sion of writs or Warrants of any kind.
Though the offer was made to the set
tlers to laud them on either shore of
the Gulf of St. Lawrence, they de
clared that they had nowhere to go
and could not leave in such a hurry.
They were compelled, however, be
cause of their ignorance of the world
and its ways, to sign a document prom
ising to quit the island at an early
date. Now that the facts have be
come kujwn nt Quebec the utmost in
dignation has been caused against

history of earthquakes on tho Pacific
coast,the disturbances being arranged
chronologically and brieily discussed
in au introduction.
As many of thc earthquakes of Cali
fornia are very local phenomena,which
depend,upon local causes for their
production, no very definite conclu
sions can be found with regard to
them. An arrangement of the shocks
according to seasons shows that for
California, Oregon and Washington at
large shocks occur with about equal
frequency in the wet and iu the dry
seasons. Tl e records indicate, how
ever, that in San Francisco and San
Jose shocks are more frequent in tho
rainy.soason than in the dry. Dr.
Holden suggests that' in any future
study of California earthquakes special
regions ought to be selected for exam
ination, with the object of .\;termin
ing tho origin of the local shocks.
The data he has obtained seem to in
dicate that the greater number of Cal
ifornia earthquakes have been thc re
sult of faulting in underlying strata,
rather than duo to volcanic causes di
rectly, With regard to damage to life
and property caused by the earth
quakes recorded, it is concluded that

Thc X-Itay Photograph in Court.
Th'e earliest reported instance ol
the use of the X-ray process in evi
dence seems to have been in the dis
trict court of Arapahoe county, Col
orado, in 189(?. More recently in
Tennessee it was held that an X-ray
photograph, showing the overlapping
bones of one of the legs of the plain
tiff, broken by an injury for which
suit was brought,taken by a physician
md surgeon familiar with fractures
und with the process of taking such
photographs, who testified that it ac
enrately represented the condition of
the leg, is admissible in evidence
The court said: "The pictorial repre
sentation of the condition of the
broken leg of the plaintiff gave to the
jury a much more intelligent idea; of
that particular injury than it would
bave obtained from any verbal de
scription of it by a surgeon, even if
lie had used for the purpose the sim

Liverpool. He was wearing what is
known as a "top hat," and one many
sizes too large. . Entering a shop
where, among other delicacies, treacle
was vended, he asked to be supplied
with so many pounds of the same.
"Have you got anything to put it
In?" asker J,be shopkeeper.
The" customer, With, ali abstracted
look common to forgetful people, re
plied that he had not, but, as though
the ingenious Idea had just struck
him., added, "Xever mind; put it in
this/' at the same time handing over
his old chapeau.
The grocer, sniggering at the ridicu
lous situation, proceeded to weigh out
the treacle, and then bent forward to
count the change for the sovereign the
buyer put down. An instant later and
the "customer" had fixed the vender's
head within a sticky prison.
"Stop thief!" the latter screamed,
but before he could? grope his way to
thc street, the eccentric purchaser had
possessed himself of the contents of
tho till and walked leisurely, away..
The treacle ran down to his ears,
and passers-by were too much amused
at tho grocer's "strange freak" to
promptly render "first aid."-Tit-Bits.
'A Bad Break.
"Well, they all break," said thc
bride of a few weeks, "and I don't
know what you are going to do about
"But why don't you get a better
brand?" said the young husband, not
any too sweetly^ "It seems strange,
Marian, that every time I sit down to

Thc World's Greatest Crop.
The average man if asked what is

Hair Restorer is a Perfect
Every farmer's wife knows how necessary it is that
the milk buckets, pans, churns, and other implements of
the dairy be perfectly clean and free from taint. A com
mon yellow soap that smells of rosin should never be used
for washing these. Such soaps are made of materials that
you would not use for any purpose. Besides, they are
sticky and the soap will get info the cracks and corners and
stay there. Ivory Soap'is pure, it is well made, and only
sweet, clean materials are used. Then it rinses readily.

Cures AU Diseases of Women.
ANY women are under the impression
that thc diseases peculiar to their sex
are natural and incurable because so
any suffer constantly from them. Tl?is is a
?stake. Few women are so badly diseased
that they cannot be cured. It is true,
that hnd they taken a remedy that waa
efficient when the first symptomsof dis
ease appeared, a more rapid cure would
have been the result. No woman should
neglect herself. When the monthly pe
riod becomes too frequent, painful, pro-'
fuse, obstructed, or irregular in anyway,
or i f she suffers from faJfi nz of the worn b.
whites, or any other female trouble, she
should at once resort to the use of
Gerstle's Female Panacea
T"*"(Gr. F\ iE3. )"*"K
Which is absolutely the best female remedy ever offered her. Even if she has
been negligent and allowed disease to fasten itself upon her she should not de
spair of being cured. This medicine is a purely vegetable tonic, containing
those ingredients intended oy nature as a remedy for suffering women. It mat
ters not if other remedies have been tried and proven failures-Gerstle's Fe
male Panacea will not fall. If there is any tendency to costiveness, indi
digestion or biliousness, move the bowels gently with a few mild doses of St.
Joseph's Liver Regulator. If your druggist does not keep these medicines
write us and we will send them to you, all charges paid, upon receipt of price
