of its magnitude to enter into a short
The Indiana Novelty Manufacturing
Company, of t'lyniouth, Ind., 1 (fan in
18WI, the manufacture of wood rims, by
the invention of Geo. W. M-irble, of the
joint used in its one piece rims which
consists of a series of tongues ani
grooves formed in the ends of a single
bent piece and interlocked, forming a
snug lilting dovetail.
Th ; first rims were marketed in the
year 1SIH and up to and including the
month of June 1K5 over 700,000 had
been told. Though at litst hard to in
troduce they became at. once much
sought after when the merits of wood
over iron as a material for bicycle lims
were fully appreciated.
The method involved in the bending
of the wood, as tüed by this com
pany is not new though it is done by
means employed at present in none of
tha other factories of the kind. It con
sists dimply of steaming the straight
piece and bending by steel bands over
au iron form and securely fastening.
It is t! en placed upon large cars, each
wit h a capacity of tC rims, and placed
in the drying oven's or kilns and allow-
ed to remain a sullicient time to
thoroughly dry. When removed from
this hot air it is taken to the joint saw
ing machines and the dovetailing and
glueing up performed. The application
of a clamp to the glued joint holds it
firmly in place while the glue sets and
after a few hours it is ready for tho
forming or turning process.
This is done on especially designed
high speed lathes and at once taken to
the sanders. Here a change from a
rough surface rim to one as smooth as
glass is done in a remarkably short time
through the agency of a machine which
revolves the rim while the sand paper
ing is in progress.
As rims are ordered in various diller-
ent styles, finish and drillings the pro
cess from this point varies considerably.
Soma are allowed to be shipped in the
plain wood to be enameled by the bi-
I ! ' j
cycle manufacturer while others are
drilled especially for a certain number
of spokes or allowed, as is the case of
the majority, to be finished and sent out
as a coaipleie article, ready to do duty
on many a bicycle and in all parts of
The timshing process is the same with
the exception of minor details, to that
employed in the tinish of the best furni
tire or carriages. A tiller to thorough
ly waterproof the wood and till up the
pores is first applied and when this is
dry a coat of varcish, another and,
sometimes a third co;;t, is applied.
The bending of guards and handle
bars is also carried on to a large uxtent
but it is the celebrated "PJymouth" rim
that has made this company famous
and that of our town familiar every
where, where cycling is indulged in.

A CHILD'S LONG JOURNEY.
Magna Nessler Travels from tlitlaud Im
Seattle Times: Traveling from Fin
land to Alaska without speaking a
word that any one understood, without
a single traveling companion, or with
out meeting a person who knew him,
from one end of the journey to the
other, is no small undertaking, but it
has just been completed by an eight-year-old
boy. Magnus NessW left a
pleasant home iu far away Finland on
June 3 to join hts father and mother
who are working at Douglas City. He
made this Ioiir voyage across the great
pond in the steerage of one of the big
ocean steamers. Here he was not so'
lonely, as there were other Finlanders
on the boat who talked the language
he could understand. At new York
there was no delay, owing to a careful
ly written shipping card, which had
been sewed securely on the back of his
coat before he started on the long
journey. This did away with the ne
cessity of talking as far as getting
through without delay was concerned.
His ticket had been purchased to cover
the entire distance, and the card di
rected him to Circle City Hotel, at
Juneau. He reached Seattle in time to
make good connections with the Alas
ka boat, and was forwarded to Doug
las by friends. His father and mother
have not seen him since he was a
baby, over seven years ago. when th6y
left Finland to come to the United
States. Magnus is a well built boy.

it a romance? This is what ia being
asked by members of the party who
accompanied Williams Jennings Bryan
on his tour of Kentucky last week.
At Loretto there Is a school for girl,
in charge of the Nazarine Sisters
When the Bryan special reached Lo
retto the school girls gathered to greet
the silver leadpr. Then the slaters in
charge pressed forward. One by one
they clasped his hand and passed on.
The sixth stopped, raised her cowl,
and, looking up. said: "Mr. Rryan. I
knew you long ago." Mr. Bryan was
startled. He leaned forward, and a
name was whispered in his ear. He
still clasped the hand of the nun,
whose cowl had fallen back, and re
vealed a face that showed traces of
great beauty. There was a whispered
conversation, but not until the train
moved slowly away did they break
their hand clasp. "I knew her long
ago," was alt the explanation Mr.
Bryan gave to his party.
