In most of the states of the union

with. In New York it has bowled out
the granite ring completely. Time w as

WHAT THE WHEEL HAS DONE FOR
ing to the principal hospitals, to that
the ambulances might hae easier go
ing, and upon some of the worst slum
streets down town. Upon both of these
steps the board of health insisted.
Kvcrybody knows what the bicycle
is doing for the good roads problem.
Of course the farmtrrs lune all along
been the persons most interested in
improing the country loads, and it
Feems a little strange that they left
the work to the wheelmen so long. But
a similar thing happened in photog
raphy. The professional photographer
working for their livelihood, haven't
dewilopetl their own business half so
rapidly in some directions as the ama
teurs, working for fun. Here's where
tho good citizenship coms in. The
bicyclists and the good roads prophets
are hand in gIoe. In many of the
states the L. A. W. consuls e en frown
upon the construction of separate bi
cycle paths, partly hesitating to dhert
so murh money from the common roads,
partly fearing lest the construction of
special pRths may result in abridging
the privileges of the wheel on the thor
oughfares. This fear is probably ill
founded. Local authorities have always
exercised the right to rogulnte and
classify chicles for the good of nil
classes, without pushing their rights
where the classification ceases. Special
speedways are in many cities construct
ed for trotting horses, but the man in
the sulky uses the common roads in
going and returning from his speed
way; and so does the equestrian, foi
whom special paths have been laid out
In most large parks.
Howeer this may be, mothes of the
attitude of the more conservathu con
suls in this matter are mostemphatical
ly those of good citizenship.
Until recently New Jersey and Mas
sachusetts wero the two states which
had done most for their highways. The
most radical of recent legislation, how
ever, is tho new Connecticut law (stat
ues of 1895) which pledges the state to
pay one-third the cost of one mile of
road in each town each j'ear if the coun
ty and town will each par one-third.
The cost of one mile of road is estimated
at $3,000. A poor town is by this means
enabled to get a mile or pood road at a
direct cost to itself of but $1, COO, and tho
most of tho general stat and county
cost falls on the richer towns and cities.
A lwtter device could 3iardly bo imag
ined for encouraging road improvement
in the poorer regions. Uighty-fne
towns availed tlu-mKehesof thelawlast
year, and 75 more hae already swung
into line in 1600. Thes are about two
thirds of till the tow ns in the little Nut

New York cyclist may ride on good
loads nearly all the way to Robton, by
way of New Ilnten, Hartford and
In New Jersey road building has been
carried on upon scientific principles, not
so much throughout the state, as in
Connecticut, but rather concentrated
in the more populous counties. Still,
one may ride to Philadelphia, 00 miles,
on good road all tho way and the trip
lias ueen made tn lees than eighty Jiours
more than once.
The bicycle lmnement fchowedi dan
ger at one time of being captured by
hoodlums and road scorchers, but it Is
far from being in their lmnds now. The
great League of American Wheelmen
stands again for good citizenship In f or
blddioj, road racing. Road races arc
held, but the ban of the league robs
them of their regularity. This is a point
still In controversy nnd may bo left for
I future settlement. It ls possible that

the league has been too careful of the
interests of general traflloj but, if so, it
is a good fault. t.
As for scorching out of th purc de
light of going fast, nine wheelmen out
of ten cerywhcrc emphatically uphold
ecry attempt to put it down. New
York wns the first city to establish a
small squad of bicycle policemen.
About 20 .other cities have already fol
low ml the example and what is more
important in many places special
policemen arc appointed 'from among
the 'wheelmen themselves to serve with
out pay in preventing rowdyism
awheel. Tho lcst cycle clubs have been
prompt to sco that one rowdy on a bicy
cle injures the reputation, with non
riders, of wheelmen who are not row
dies. Sometimes local bicyclists insist upon
too much, as when they claim the priv
ilege of riding over sidewalks or going
without bell by day and lamp by night;
but Americans haw so long asked less
thnn their public rights that if is re
freshing to meet once in awhile a body
of men who stand up for a little moie
than may pioperly belong to them.
And in regard to such local ordinances,
it is easy to see that more strictness
is required where both bicyclists nnti
pedestrians nrc many than w here cither
class is few. Upon, the boulevard in
New .York, for instance, it is a rare
thing nowadays to sec a bicyclist rid-
ing at night without a lighted, lamp.
As for sidewalk riding, it is only al
lowed in sparsely ettled places, and
the tendency against it is more and
more marked among wheelmen them
sehes. Probably the most magnificent show
bicycle ride in the world is that from
upper New York through the park,
down the bouloard or on Sunday tho
cable car "slot" on Broadway across
the bridge, through lovely Prospect
park nnd down the new cycle path to
Coney Island. On Sundays nnd holi
days many thousands make use of this
route, nnd the proportion of accidents
is small. The first bicycle path from
tho park to the island proxed its in
adequacy in a single season, and a sec
ond has just been opened. Each of
these paths is about 15 feet wide, built
of i,ery fine granite chips, perfect in
surface and about .")', miles long. A
idrunken cyclist is comparatively rare,
and many of the road restaurants sell
only temperance drlnkh. (linger ale
with a lemon squeezed into it is perhaps
the commonest drink of male bicyclists.
The prettiest thing about the cj cle path
spectacle is to see how oung nnd old
join in it. Here at last is the ideal out
door exercise in wh-'ch whole families
can join. In the good roads section of
Jersey it is almost the rule that tho base
ment of a dwelling contains a wheel for
evciy member of the famil' except tho
Women learn from the bicycle the
control of their nerves. It is a fine
sight to see in 1800 a woman weaving
her wheel in and out among loaded
teams who in 1894 would hardly have
idared to cross the same street with
out a policeman's arm. When the moth
er of a family enn strap a lunch box
to her handle-bar and convoy n brood of
young cyclists for a day at the isea-
shoro or in the woods, there is a de
cided gain in tho average health of

to give the American race a fighting
chance to survive.
The young men profit quite as much.
They arc learning, long before the3' be
come voters, the power of organization
in enforcing public mensures. They are
learning to reason that if by combina
tion a granite ring may be broken, ho
may other rings. They are learning to
talk, not less about national politics
necessarily, but more about street pav
ing and street cleaning, the board of al
dermen and municipal affairs general
ly. 'I hey are learning to take an inter
est in public business and larger towns,
nnd these affairs, as nil critics agree,
oic those most needing attention.
Yi ith the extension of good roads the
bicycle will silence the "deserted farm"
cry. No one is likely much to mind liv
ing 13 miles from a lemon if he can
get on a fair turnpike and wheel to his
Jpinon in an hour, instead of sitting sul
.enly taring at a mud canal, called by
courtesy a road. The horseless car--iagu
with pneumatic tires will supple
ment the bicycle in this improvement.
There- may come a day, and boon, when
n good road once built will need no re
puir of the wear of wheels. The coun
try boy will surely bo more willingio
stay on the farm when he, too, can liave
his century runs almost from his own
door and can feel along the interlink
ing arteries of perfect roads the one
ness of himself with the big world in a
sense that the railroad station half a
'dozen miles away can never give.
The United States has reason to
thank Heaven for tho bicycle. It was
just what we needed, and it came when
our need of It was the greatest.
