Hivnl of Ui'vel Gear.
Th" inventive genius of an KngHshman
has produced this rival of tiie beel gear
It consihth of three wheels. Two of
them ore for ordinary use, and the third
furnishes the menus of propulsion. The
pt dais are attached to a gear wheel, which
is at the lowest part of the frame.
About the wde of the gear wheel revolves
another and smaller gear whe. 1, which
is at the end ol what may be called the
seat post. There is a similar gear wheel
at the Uthei end of the rod. It fits a
gear (,n a large wheel, which runs on
aiy axle supporting the teat pos' propci.
The re.Iutton of tlie pedals reolves the
first gear wheel, rexolving the rod and
the large wheel. This wheel turns on
the periphery ef th large road wheel,
which drives the bicjcle. It is unhpie.

It has been positively stated that the

up in t-naiiilesc s-tyle a, well a.s with

Sterling and Itarncs.
Tha leckoning of the gear on (ho new
vhande-s wheel is rather a complicated
matt'T and rcqcires the uv of deeiirais
and fractuns. It is computed by ta'cing
ths nutrihe- of teeth on the two rear cog
wlieelr- and after dividing them, multiply
it bv the number of teetli on the two front
jog wheels. The sum is then multiplied
by the diameter or the rear wheel, or 2s.
The gear of the wheels that havi ben
sto..'i is T2 on the men 'a wheel and 4
on the women's.
A public tet of an electric place in

Olj-mpls. track, 135th street and Lenox
avenue, New York, at 8 p. m , Wednesday,
0"tober 27. L A. TV. officials have signi
fied their intention to tie present, and a
cordial invitation is extended to the wheel
men of New York and vicinity. It will be
postponed until Thursday afternoon in case
of rain.
Women should eschew rat-trap pedals.
Pubber pedals, with toe clips, will answer
quite as weli as the toothed variety. The
great danger of rat-trap pedals for women
is tlie tendency to catch in the -kirt when
they are coasting, llanj a bad fall has
been caused this way.
"Match Century Knee.
The twelve team century race between
the Century Club and the Arlington Wheel
men, which will b.. pulled orf in tlie course
or the nevt thirty days, proiniberi to b the
moht interesting event of the kind ever
held In thk city. Poth of thef-e clubs
have strong riders in their ranks, Tney
have bh.iwn time end again that they ar.j
entifled to rank among the beFl bicycle
clubs south pf New 1'ork. In tl e recnt
big ceutury run to Frederiok both of there
clubs entered team's and ran a dead heat, as
both Uanib brought all or their men h nne
-vilhin the stipulated time. Therefore
another meeting between them is bound
to be a most interesting event m local rac
ing circle. Century races are becoming
more aud more popular Tlie followers
oT the game nppear to appreciate thesports-man-like
feeling that exists between the
contending clubs in Incise races and are
iuterejNtod accordingly.
The prc-iobtiDn is that the race be held
over the course to Froderick, Md., that was
taken by the riders in tlie big cenfury
run. This run lh one of the most popular
in tills vlf-intty and a large number of
volunteers will in all probability accom
pany the ndeie from the Century and
Arlington dubs. The dure of the run nas
not as jr t been decided upon, but It vlll
probab'y be set for some time during the
middle of next month. As It will not
rake plac on Sunday the members of the
teams will have to arrange matters to
the race wi'l be convenient to all. Some
of them might not be able to get away
from their busim.8-, to for this reason tin
date will have to be agreed upon some
time before the date set for the race.
The following conditions will govern tlie
match
First, that the race shall be for 100 miles
nnd be run over the customary course t'i
Frederick, Md., and return. Start nnd
finish at Tr'ghtwood. Second, that $63
be deposited for suitable prizes for the win
ning ream fifteen days prior to date of
race. Third, that the team representing
each cluo shall he composed of twelve ac
tive members in good standing ot the club
they represent nnd -were such on Sep
tember 26, 1S97, it being specifically un
derstood and agreed that the books ot
each club are open to any representative
appointed bv either club to corroborate
this fact bsfore Slid race is run, and fur
ther, that each club shall be allowed to
ippoint three additional members to act
ns subtsitutes on the team it necessary.
Fourtn. that the names of each team and
substitute shall be published three days
prior to date of race, over the signatures
of tho respective captains, and Uiat no
change -will be allowed thereafter. Flftli,
that the winning toara shall be determined
upon by '.ho number of pointB scored by
said team, beginning with 24 points and
ending at 1 point. Sixth, that each ridor
shall bear, a number conspicuously dis
Jayed, and shall remain at the turning
point one hour from the tlnoo o his ar
rival at fl'.at pont. Seventh, that the race
shall not be run on Sunday, and in ac
cordance with the Century .Road Club of
America.
Amateur Twenty-Mile Uundlcnp.
The a'l.ateur twenty-mile handicap road
race wmcl. will be held on the Conduit
riad on Wovcmbi-r S will he the Itugest
and most elaborate one ever held in thib
part of the country.
ne i'st of prizes is a very valuable
one, there being about thirty, including
two time prlefe. There will be heveral
bicycles, a wsll as diamonds, jew Jry and
other valuable prizes. The list of entries

It is said that when the bloomer girl
first made her appearance in Brittanj,
a province of France, the children used
to cross themselves each time they saw
the mil uown apparition. Now, the rebi
dents ol ilonlgeron, a plate in the suburbs
ol Par's w hlch is pastted by a great num
her of i.vtlists cverj Sunday, have draft
ed a pet i km to be presented to theCliam-h'-r

"cvvUsts of both sexes wear costumes that

other things which show an equal dlsrc

This matter or tlie proper regard or pro

one that has received rar too little atten

Nov IMic-e I.lHt Kediictinns.
There r.iw been deductions and de
duct'.n drawn from the new list prices
that wiil prevail during 1898. hat Ile.ir
nigu has to say here, however, is not con
renting the deductions that Will be drawi
bv cop miner or retail dealer nor yet by
the genus jobber, It lias to do merely
v ith the deductions that are drawn by
the manufacturer. Tlie generally accepted
ll"l pilcefoi the coming season is 75. This
is the orice which will be asked the retail
purchaser for what will be termed Igh
grade chain wheel?. There "will be other
wheel which will be called high grade
by their makers, which will be listed lower
and there will be chain wheels listed higher.
Neverthelu-b. the trade and the public have
already decided that $75, uo more ind no
lev. is the proper figure for really high
grade go'H.
iow -v .n a long pause after tho now
what iteductions do the makers draw from
this list fig-ire? There innst be a discount
to agents. The latitude between the
minimum of poKKlhle factory cost and the
list prhc ia so reduced that the latitude
'jetween the gieatest und smallest dis
count that can be allowed to tho agent
is lmnieii-ely cutdown. Take the minimum
fnoloi y cost ot a reidly hlgh-srade wheel,
add to It tne absolutely necesnary office
and soiling expenses, add to this sum a
fair, legitimate profit, and it will be seen
that the lowest price at which tlie wheel
can be iold to the agent is so near the list
price that tlie agent who gets the largest
discount will not have a great advantage
ovr tho one who has tlie smallest. All
this apolie1- te. wheels that are sub
stantially as good as can be built, wheels
that will add to the reputation of their
builders.
Now, with another long pause after the
"now" is It good business to build eucii
really reliable "Wheels aud to. list them
at S7o, or is it good business to list them
at. this maximum of what can possibly be
gotten for them and tut down on fuctory
cost, so that the scali of discounts maj
be more elastic, so that a big margin
of profit will be made for bad accounts
and left-over goods, a figurative "Pikes
Peak or bust" policy? "Will it be good
business to save on pedals and rims, and
saddles and tires, on tubing and connec
tions on balls and spoke?, on traveling
men and office help, on designers and
mechanics, oil advertising and treatment
of agents and replacements? Bearings
opines not. Bearings does not believe,
but it knows, that the consumer and tlie
agent will expect and demand just as
good an article at $75 list as he ever
had at $100 and a little better. On
tills ccper tatlon and demand will rest the
future biisincss of the firms that arc still
left with reputations iu the bicycle busi
ness. Let them leave to the makers of
wheels that are fold without reputation,
name or known name-plate, to identify
them, these savings.

It is not difficult to
lurge proportion of accidents which result
from violent contact between wagons and
bicjo!s. The very same perver-.eness of
spirit which encourages a driver to allow
ids norses to loller along iu front of at,
electric car, to the animr nice of Mio mo
tormau and his passengers, often induces
him to make tumble lor the cycler. Tins
class of driver exercises his perversiry
more often with wheelmen, because ho
knows that the latter is sure to be the
ciuef suffer r in an corti-ion, wide, if
th" adversary be an electric car, its ..ze,
weight and speed ordinarily deter him
from Inviting uu impact with it On
countrv roads, the chauces of accidents
between bicycler and wagotis are about ai
great a on the crowded streets of the
cities. Tlie unimproved highway usually
affords a very narrow space on wnlch tho
bicjcle muv be propelled with comfort, to
say no hing of safety a fact which drlv ers
sotuetin es seem unable or unwilling to
comprehend, when they crowd the rider
off as though he had no legal right on the
road.
If the causes of all collisions between
cycles an 1 pedestrians could be investigated,
it is safe to predict that more than one half
ot the lotal nauiber would b2 found to be
due to the fact that pedestrians generally
biep carelessly off of the sidewalks or
paths, without the thought that a-bicycle
may be approaching in the same direction,
and liable to come upon them unknowingly
Only bicycle uers themselves understand
Just what it means to have some one on
foot step directly in front of a machine, so
suddenly that no opportunity is afforded for
it to swerve to one side or to materially
slackon its spt-ed TJti'il the advent of the
bicycle, pedestrians were warned of the
approach or any vehicle by the clattering
of hoofsim the pavemeutbehiud tuein The
bicvele, on the contrary, makes no noise,
and people who do not look behind them
wl en st ppiug from a siuew alk, are jftcii
surprised to -llscover tlieir feet in mid-air
a moment later, and the solid part of tlieir
anatomy Intermingled with the framework
of a bicycle. They are Indignant, of course,
for there is no deep and subtle philosophy
in smarting shins and bruised flesh; but. in
more Mian hall of such instances, the fault
is not the rider's. Of course, he should
ring his bell when he. has -reason to ex
pect that a pedestriuii is neirr-, but tint fact
is not always easily determined, und the
mot strenuous objector to the continuul
ringing of a itell Is very Irpt to be the
fellow who will step frdiiWu. sidewalk to
the roadway without glancing behind.
The next largest proportion of collisions
between bicycles and pedestrians may be
traced to the artrul dodging which starts
with the pedestrian tryingto get out of
tne way of the bicycle, and vice versa, in
which event the well-intending dodgerj
are almost sare to nieettTn a forcible em
brace, froniAvhich they generally arise with
a feeling none too friendly. The rider
wonders why the -walker did not go straight
and the walker wonders why th rider did
not do likewise, and there the matter ends
if, indeed, it does not degenerate to tho
low level of physical force. It is a pretty
mfe rule, however, for tthe pedestrian to
keep on his way, and leave the dodging to
the man ou the wheel who, seldom if ever,
runs into an object which is stationary, or
of whose movements he can he certain. It
Is the uncertainty about the pedestrian's
movements which liothers wheelmen and
wheelwomen the most.
And then, too, the rider's responsibility
for the accidents in which he figures, though
not paramount, is by no "means to be over
looked. Sad to say, arrogance often takes
a bicycle for his mount, and this individual
will not turn off of a straight line until
forced to do so for his own safety. But.
elnce the danger of injury to the wheel man
and his mount is far greater than that to
which the driver and his cart arc ex
