Leading Klaycle Rider Will Let In

Cape Girardeau, Mo., will probably j
oe ins training grounu oi many racing
cyclists this spring. The fast board
track at the quiet Missouri town, its
pleasant rural surroundings, the
splendid opportunities it offers for
uninterrupted hard work will attract
many riders who desire to get into the
very best of condition at the least
The quarter-mile board track at the
Cape is an excellent one. It is as fast
as any in the country, as was proven
when Orlando Stevens made a new-
record for the one-third mile on it last
fall: on a bitter cold day, too. Will
Coburn cut s-everal State records on
jt last year.
The track is located on the west
bank of the Mississippi, overlooking
tho wide bend which the river forms
above the quaint old town of Cape
Girardeau. The river forms the boun
dary of the track on one side, and the
view in summer is very pretty.
The track lies adjacent to the Uiver

same parties as own the track Frank

not think that any medic. ne world
help him. but after giving hi-n a f
doses of that remedy I noticed ar ii i.

"The number of male in.'.-.
yearly exeeeeds that of fatunie by una
to four per cent, the proportion vary
ing slightly Trum year to year,'"
writes Prof. D. R. McAIly of 'The
American Girl's Chances of Mar
riage,' in the March Ladies Home
Journal. The mishaps of boyhood,
however, reduce the number f boys
to some extent, but not so much as to
mak thi adult females outnumber (he
males. For every American woman,
therefor, there ought to be a husband
in posse if not in esse, and the fact
that thi re is a. largo percentage of
unmarried adult women in the coun
try, and a greater proportionate num
ber in some sections than in others,
is attributable to causes which have
disturbed the balance of population.
In all new countries an . compared
with Kuroiie the United States is a
new country there is a iui g-r nri'-
portion of males than u. females.
Tho aggregate population ... tho Uni
ted States, so far as the latest otlicial
figures show, is (K,r:,i"iJ. of which
'!:!; fx i".fso are males ami .'! i..V l..-i7li are
females. Thus the preponderance of
males over females would seciu to
make II cuiaparaliveiy easy for the
American girl to secure a husband,
but in certain sections this is evident
ly Jiot the case, else the proportion of
aduit unmarried woman would not bo
so large. If men would remain in the
neighborhood where they were born
the proportion of men ard women
would be nearly equal all over tho
country, but men find work hard to
get in the older and inoiv populous
communities, and go to the newer
States. The young women are left
behind, and the young men. after set
tling in their new homes, forget the
companions of their youth, and con
tract alliam-es among their new friends
in the West, hence some of the Eastern
States show a surplus of females."
