GOOD PRICES AND HIGH WAGES.
V.'n.it We I If _ an t<i Out l?n Sunn ua the
McKinley Law Wan Repealed.
"What wo want iu this country, as
Govoruor McKinley .-ays, are good
times, good prices und good wages,"
romui'ks it contemporary. And wo uro
gottiug precisely those things with n
rapidity that actually makes Governor
McKinley look sick. The change set in
the moment the McKinley law was re?
pealed, and tho upward movement boa
gained momentum us it advanced.
The giiod times arc folt in every ware
house, counting room, factory, railroad
office and mercantile establishment. Tho
good prices arti realized by every one
who has anything to .sell in the shape
of the product of u forge, factory or
farm. Tho good wages have coiuo un?
solicited, lmt mote or less wolcome, to
more than 1,000,000 oporutivea in nil
parts of t!m country, and they have
spread happiness mid contentment
throughout tin's broad land.
Those things uro what the vast body
of tho people want, but they uro not
what Governor McKinley und the lead
era of tho Republican party waut. He
and they have fastened their hopes on
calamity. The misery and destitution
n!' tho pcoplo bring grist to their mills.
Prosperity is the douthknolMo their ex?
pectations. Thoy (leo from tho signs of

THE BICYCLE WALK.
Americans I'unt Dsconilng n I'lircontoctl,
An Illinois physician has discovered
that the prescht extreme use of the bi?
cycle is fust tending to make the great
American people a decidedly pigcoutocd
race. Tho constant revolving motion of
: thn feet and lower legs as they turn the
I pedals has given to the gait of those
pooplo who OTO much addicted to tho
I bicycle n peculiar tnrn which the pro?
gressive doctor culls tho bicycle walk.
Those who remember the days of tho
roller skating craze Will probably re?
call thn effect that exercise had on Ilm
gait of those who practiced it, particu?
larly the guit of some of the young la?
dies of tho ago to bo easily affected.
They look on at once a rolling, swing?
ing, half gliding, rhythmical step that
I resembled the motion of roller skating
as closely as could bo by any one not on
So it will bo with tho bicycle walk,
says tbo aforesaid Illinois doctor, except
that instead of being ouly a temporary
peculiarity it will become permaueut
and hereditary,as tho bicycle fever prom?
ises to be, whereas tho roller skating
fad enjoyed but abrief existence.? Chi?

iasuo of tho arm to,tho cavalry will be
gin ill ouco, and the end of the year
will sco evory brauch of the service

matter, as tho manufacture of the riflo

A remarkable revenge was wreaked
on a rival by a young man in Waldrou,
