ADMISSION DAY SPORTS.
THE GREAT BICYCLE MEET TO-
DAY AT RIVERSIDE.
Home Uosalp About the Big Brents and
the Ohler Contestants—A Hard
Matter to Flok the
Admission day will bB celebrated in
fine style at Rivsraide today. The
wheelmen's tournament will be feature
of the day.
The early trains from this city will
carry a large number of people who will
go to witness the bicycling events. The
Santa Fe will run a special train leaving
Riverside at 7 p. in., returning to this
city by way of San Bernardino.
The rider of whom the moat is ex
pected at the racea is Lewis Fox. It ia
a question, however, if he can do himself
justice by entering all tbe events in
which he is eligible. If he rides in the
road race hia appearance on the track in
the afternoon will be received with re
gret by his heartiest supporters. No
rider can do himself justice on tbe
track after such a race as will be run
over Magnolia avenue this forenoon.
Jenkins is looked upon aa ranking
next to Fox, and his admirers expect
great things of him today.
From an entirely disinterested stand
point, several of the riders who will do
remarkable wheeling are almost begin
ners. Houston of this city, Smith of
Pomona, and Was son of Riverside are
riders that have scarcely been noticed,
but if appearances count for anything
they will surprise some of tbe cracks.
As there are over 35 riders who will
enter tbe road race it is indeed bard to
Eick the winners of that event. Tbe
andicapi, as usual, do not give entire
satisfaction. It is a hard matter to get
a rider to agree that his handicap is just
and absolutely correct.
The distance of the road race coarse
is exactly 13 miles. The ride will be ti 1 ..
miles down, Magnolia avenue and re
turn, giving tbe spectators a chance of
witnessing both the start and finish.
Some records will certainly be
smashed. It is expected that the road
race will be run in the remarkably quick
time of 39 minutes, or possibly less.
The last race over the same course waa
ran in a fraction over 41 minutes.

WHY HE IS DISLIKED.
AARON SMITH NOT POPULAR AT
THE COURT HOUSE.

Proposed to- the board
Aaron Smith, the black-eyed export
of the grand jury and the expert Of the
Citizens' Reform league, is getting him
self disliked around tho county court
There is more than a trace of hauteur
noticeable when he enters Borne of the
There ia more than one officer who
says that Aaron is a meddler, and that
he is putting in two licks for Aaron
every time he puts in one for the county.
Aaron has had quite a long experi
ence in county offices, and is very know
ing. Juat how he acquired she soubri
quet of "Windy" no one knows, but
many persona who do not know who
Aaron Smith iB, recognize ''Windy"
Smith at once.
The Reform league took Aaron to Sac
ramenty to help keep down the assess
ment of the county, and it aeema to
have swelled his head, to uae a col
lie is now engaged in asaiating tbe
league to reform the office of County
Auditor Lopez, who also dislikes
"Windy," and told him a few daya ago
that il he did not mind his eye, he
would be summarily ejected from hie
It all comes about through a remark
able proposition which the Reform
League has made to the board of super
The county auditor, after the tax levy
has been made by thy board, baa a very
important mandatory duty to perform.
He ia directed to take the big batch of
assessor's bonde, upon which is the val
uation of each piece of property in the
county and compute the tax upon it,
carrying out the footing and putting
down in black and white the amount of
each man's tax. Tbe books are then
turned over to the county tax collector
and he collects the amount thus set
It is a big job and requires a lartp?
force of extra deputies. Heretofore it
has cost from (2000 to (3400.
The Reform League has got an idea,
and "Windy" Smith denies that he put
it in their heads—that the job can be
done much cheaper than the auditor
does it, and have made a proposition for
the supervisors to let it out on contract
and give them the contract at (700. The
league is red hot to have the job, or
rather, they say "certain persons" will
do it for the amount mentioned.
In other words, they want the super
visors to make the county auditor turn
over his books to. them and their ex
perts—and Mr. Smith denies that he
has anything to do with the scheme—
and they will foot up each man's tax.
It is a very particular piece of work,
that of computing from the tax rate tbe
amounts, and one in which it is very
easy to make mistakes, designedly, if
you please. If there should be such
coatly errors, naturally the supervisors
could look to no one but Auditor Lopez
and bis bondsmen. The League says
tbe "certain parties" will give Mr.
Lopez a bond.
The propoai-ion is before tbe super
visors. Naturally they cannot move
unless the responsible officer, Mr.
Lopez, gives his consent to turn over his
office to the Reform League and—no,
Mr. Smith says he is not desirous of
being mentioned aa in this matter at all.
This, is one reason why Colonel Smith
Is getting himself disliked around the
court house, because he says he is not in
MAPLE AVENUE GRADING.
Property Owners Object to It Between
Seventh and Klguth Streets.
A petition was filed with tbe county
clerk yesterday for presentation to the
council protesting against the proposed
regrading, graveling and cement side
walking oi that portion of Maple avenue
between Seventh and Eighth streets.
The petitioners gave the following rea
sons for their protest:
"We have once paid for grading and
aidewalking said street between Seventh
and Eighth streets; the street is now in
good condition between said points; the
sidewalks and curbs are as good as when
first put down. The said work of re
grading ia not a necessity at thia time
and to all of as it would be a financial
burden and hardship."

A ROUMANIAN FOLK SONG.
He whom I lovod no well
Is In his long, long sleep.
Yet I lament htm not.
For he told me not to weep.
More dear to him the grave
Than 1 could ever be.
For though I go to him,
lie does not come to me.
I envy not the grave
What yesterday was mine,
But. bow my head and say,
"Keep him, for he is thine.
But keep not, grave, my youth.
Which cannot profit thee.
My siuilo and my light step—
Oh, give them back to me."
But the grave answered, "No.
For these things still are dear.
Since he, deprived or them.
Would be too lovely here."
Then to the dead I pray, .
"Restore my youth to me.
That when we meet again
I be not old to thee!"
But he nor hears nor seos
For his eyes like mine are dim.
Bo to his grave I come
* To get them back from him.
For only ln the grave
Are tears no longer shed j
And the living happy made
Beside the happy dead.

Mistakes of Missionaries.
Come behind the curtain with me while
I whisper into your ear a few of the mis
takes made by missionaries, who talk so
much about the mistakes of the heathen.
One evening an English missionary in
Peking took a friend who was visiting
him to a regular Chinese theater. It
happened that the play for that evening
was a burlesque on foreign preaching.
A Chinaman dressed up to represent a
foreigner came upon the stage with his
arms full of books, attended by his Chi
nese servant. He began to preach a mock
sermon, making the mistakes in talking
which a foreigner is likely to make.
These mistakes were received with bursts
of laughter from the audience, to whom
the leooks were distributed. The fun
came to a climax when the preacher,
after delivering a sentence particularly
full of laughable mistakes, turned to his
servant and said: "How did I speak?
Did I do pretty well?" and the servant
replied with great gravity: "The foreign
teacher speaks the Chinese language ex
ceedingly well. No mistakes at all were
made."—New York Independent.
An Invention For Steamships*
An English mechanical genius has do
vised a method of indicating and stop
ping a leak by the use of compressed air.
HeTHvides a ship into airtight compart
ments, fitted with doors provided with
packing material and connected by tubes
with a room on deck called the "switch
room." In this room is a junction chest
supplied with compressed air from fixed
or portable compressors and so arranged
that the air can be delivered to any of
the compartments. Other tubes lead
from the compartment from which wa
ter can be forced out when required, and
electric indicators are also connected
with the switch room to indicate the ac
cumulation of water in any of the com
partments. Should the vessel "spring a
leak" tbe indicator will show which com
partment is affected, so that the com
pressed air may be forced in to drive the
water out. —Boston Journal.
True Love Side Tracked by an Orange.
A young lacly said the other day that
she hated oranges because one had come
between her and her lover. He had
called on her one evening, and after sit
ting awhile had produced a couple of
bright Florida oranges out of his pocket
and suggested that each eat one. She
now says that she cannot drive out of
her mind the Bight of his nose, cheeks
and chin dripping with juice, and he has
been whispering something horribly sim
ilar about her. Evidently you cannot
love a girl and a citrus aurantium at the
same time.—Pittsburg Dispatch.

to be winning is to be wise, bnt it must
not be .overdone. He has a friend, an

from place to place, "Dear Belfast
souls," "Dear Dublin souls"—and before
he knew it he was Baying, "Dear Cork
souls," which convulsed his Irish audi

The beauty of the Administration
building rotunda is being marred slowly
but surely. First came a guidebook
stand; then cigur and tobacco showcases
obtained a footing, and last, but not
least, is the alleged model of the
treasury building at Washington, which
is being constructed of pine, bluo cheese
cloth and Columbian half dollars.
The wooden base on which the coins
are being glued is extremely inartistic
itself, but the man who made it evident
ly failed to take into consideration the
size of the half dollars, and the coins are
being cut into all sorts of shapes and de

There aro 340 windows in the thing,
and each wrindow represents at least five
mutilated coins, entailing a loss of $1,

of the porticoes, verandas and cornices
straight will necessitate the spoiling of
2,000 more coins.
Tho whole thing, from the coarse iron
fence to the tin window frames, is an
eyesore, and none is quicker to recog

country, for whose delectation the thing
is being built.—Chicago Tribune.
f Reunited After Twenty-one Tears.
After a separation lasting SI years,
John H. Morrison and his wife have
been reunited. In 1865 Squire Morrison
wedded Miss Fry in York county and
five years later came here to reside.
He remained here for twt> years, and,
meeting business reverses, went west,
leaving his wife and four daughters here,
and nothing was heard of him until last
March, When an advertisement for a wife
appeared in a Harrisburg paper signed
John H. Morrison. It was seen by one
of his daughters. She answered it.
Morrison received 617 answers to his
advertisement, but replied only to the
one written by his daughter. In tho
correspondence that followed their rela
tionship was disclosed, and when he
learned his wife was still living he made
arrangements to take her to his western
home. A letter received states that they
recognized each other on sight at the
railway station in Oklahoma.—Lancaster

Garbage Turned Into Light.
The introduction of garbage destitJC

It has taken some little time to enable
people to realize that not only need this
refuse of towns and cities bo not wasted,
but that it can actually bo turned into a
source of very considerable profit. A

A poll parrot, owned by a New York

to her master, a few months ago, awoke
him by shrieking frantically, and in this
way was probably the means of saving
property, if not lives.

I think that one of tho saddest inci
dents of the war which I witnessed waa
after the battle of Gettysburg. Off on
tho outskirts, seated on the ground with
his back to a tree, was a dead soldier.
His eyes were riveted on some object
held tightly clasped in his hands. As we
drew nearer wo saw that it was an am
brotypo of two small children. Man
though I was, hardened through those
long years to carnage and bloodshed, the
sight of that man who looked on his
children for the last time in this world,
who, away off iv a secluded spot, had
rested himself against a tree that he
might feast his eyes on his little loves,
brought tears to my eyes which I could
not restrain had I wanted. There were
six of us in the crowd, and we all found
great lumps gathering in our throats and
mist coming before our eyes which al
most blinded us.
Wo stood loolring at him for some
time. I was thinking of the wife and
baby I had left ut homo and wondering
how soon, in the mercy of God, she
would bo left a widow and my baby boy
fatherless. We looked at each other and
instinctively seemed to understand one
another's thoughts. Not a word was
spoken, but wo dug a grave end laid the
poor follow to rest with his children's
picture clasped over his heart. Over hia
grave on the tree against which he was
sitting I inscribed the words: "Some
body's Father. July 3,1303."—81ue and
Exploded Traditions at Old Vale.
Both South college rind the Athenteum
have their now blasted traditions. Aa
to the former, it has been alleged in New
Haven—and aij least one pfotainent ar
chaeologist has indorsed tbe story—that
about the time the college was built
there was n mysterious hiatus of grave
stones in the old cemetery on the New
Haven green. The tradition then averred
that these stones had been built into tbe
fireplaces of South college, where they
would be found when the structure wt&s
pulled down. Here was the fine hint for
a college ghost story, based on a spectral
apparition of the affronted owner of one
of the stones, but, if ever penned, it is
outlawed now by the discovery thatt
every fireplace in Old South was of sim
Then, again. President Stiles' diary
notes the confession of a student that he

and that there the sacred volume had

by the fall of the Athenaeum's walls
without the filched Bible's reappearance.
