As pretty a day's racing, probably,
as was ever put up in an amateur
meeting was seen by a small crowd at
the Hamline track yesterday. The han
dieappers had done their work well in
most cases, and in the few cases where
it might have been urged that fast
men were given disproportionate han
dicaps, the objection was lessened by
the closeness of the finishes.
There were no walk-aways, and few
side-trackings. The finish of the five
mile handicap race showed as pretty a
bunch when the leaders crossed the
tape as was ever seen on any bicycle
track. Out of the field of a score or
more, there were but two who- were
not close up in the first bunch, and
Within fifty yards of the finish.
There was some delay in getting the
programme started, but when it was
once going, the events were pushed
along lively, with one or two excep
tions. The first called was the one
mile race for novices, with a field so
large that it was necessary to start
them in two heats. The first bunch
went off nicely, Fred Smith taking
the start from the tape and giving
way at the quarter to Salsman, of Min
neapolis. All were well together as
they strung around the circuit, and
when they came into the stretch, with
the wind at their backs, there was
some pretty speeding. Smith came
over the tape just ahead of Ned Noble,
with James Harris and Albert H. Jones
qualifying for the final heat. The sec
ond bunch was even better, for it made
the fastest mile of the day in spite of
the strong wind which was full in the
teeth of the riders all the way down
the back stretch. Wallowick, of St.
Paul, set the pace during the early part
of this heat, but Barney Hughes fin
ished first, with Scheiber second. Ed

McLean and Paul Mayer qualifying for
the final heat. This double quartette
had a merry mixup, Smith and Hughes
making a hard spurt for the lead at
the start and Smith holding it well.
Smith won, a bit ahead of Ned Noble,
while Jones and Harris were almost on
a dead heat. The judges gave Jones
third place. The heat was much slower
than the others, 2:56%.
The second race, the mile open, with
a time limit of 2:30, gave rise to the
first dissatisfaction of the day There
was a pretty race in the first heat, but
the strong head wind in the farther
corner of the track shut them out of
the limit. Sudheimer and Carmichael
made a thrilling finish, the little fellow
winning out in the last twenty feet.
Martin was third. Starter Hutchins at
first stated that the race would stand
in spite of the failure to make the
time required, on account of the high
wind, but a howl immediately went up

It was discovered, too, that watches
disagreed, and Mr. Hutchlns recon
sidered his determination. On the sec
ond trial Sudheimer again came In in
front, with Martin second, and Car
michael third. In spite of the fact that
the novices had made the same dis
tance more than two seconds within
the limit imposed on the cracks, this
heat was allowed to stand as the race,
in spite of the protest of some of the
friends of riders, who thought they
were being given Ahe worst of it.
The third race was the half mile
open and here more trouble arose. It
was on the programme as a dash.
Martin and Carmichael had a hard
fight for first honors, and Martin came
out ahead. Sudheimer was third and
Todd fourth. It was declared a race,
but no sooner was this whispered
around than the riders held a meeting
at the paddock gate, and made such
a roar that the error was looked up
and it was found that the entries for
the race were all made fer a "two
heats in three" race. In this view of
the case a second heat was ordered,
and a pretty mix up was shown. Sud
heimer this time led the bunch, while
Carmichael held second, and Todd
came in third, the winner of the first
heat not getting even a show. The
final heat showed still more compli
cations, the heat and race going to
Carmichael by less than two feet.

third. It was a record breaker for

The professional handicap had a
smaller field, but if was none the less
interesting. Max Littman, a Minne
apolis crack, by some means eluded the
handicappers and secured the limit
handicap, 100 yards. He did not like
to set the pace, however, for not only
did Bird, 25 yards behind him at the
pistol shot, pass him, but at the end
of the first mile, he was fourth. Bird,
McDiarm'id, and Rydell, one of the
scratch men leading him. He had great
confidence in his > own sprint, however,
and it was not until the wheels ground
the dust in the stretch a second time
that he broke his way out of the back
of the bunch and came up on the side
at break neck speed. Rydell, however,
gave him a hard run and finished sec
ond, with Bird third.
The boy's race, one mile open, was
marred by the first accident of the day.
Ned Noble had the pole, and when the
ten went away, he led off just a little
from Fred Smith, who tried to get the
pole from him. Smith had an itching
curiosity to look around and see where
the rest of the riders were, and In a
moment Noble was trying to beat the
boards off the fence with various port
ions of his anatomy. For a minute he
saw visions of riders tramping his re
mains into the dust, and when all had
gone by he raised up for a minute,
looked around him, and fell limp in
the track, where he revived afterward,
but he did not race any more yester
day. His injuries are not serious, how
ever. Smith led the bunch handily with
Noble out of It, and finished nicely,
but lost the race on account of having
looked around. He took his medicne
like a man, however. Harris, Schieber
and Paul Mayer, who took the prizes
in the order named, were well together
and close behind him when they reach

Do not put away your wheel when
the snow is on the ground and the
ponds and rivers are frozen up, says
the New York Herald. You can enjoy
it just as well in winter as in sum
mer. Nature provides in the cold sea
son a smooth, broad and limitless
boulevard, more perfect than the best
asphalt pavement ever laid by man.
Next winter the first coatings of ice
thick enough to bear a burden will wit
ness the advent of a new sport, and
the name of it is "bike sledding."
Thanks to a Yankee's inventive gen
ius, a bicycle can now be provided with
runners, or skates, rendering it pos
sible to spin along over the frozen fluid
at a high rate of speed with compar
ative safety, making all the turns,
stops and starts as easily as upon the
floor of the riding school.
This invention consists of an equip
ment of three runners, which can be
attached to any machine without the
slightest injury— one runner for the
front wheel and two for the rear. The
rear portion of the bicycle is supported
by the runners in such a manner that
the tire presses upon the ice sufficiently

hard to grive the friction, or traction,
necessary for propulsion. By means
of a lever operated by the hands of
the rider the pressure of the tire upon
the ice can be regulated, or if it is
desired to coast, the rear wheel can
be raised entirely from the surface,
throwing the weight upon the runners.
These runners are but a few inches
apart. They resemble an exaggerated
long Dutch skate.
The front wheel does not revolve at
all. The runner is fastened firmly to
it, not permitting it to touch the ice.
Steering is accomplished in the or
dinary manner with the handle bars
The break consists of a number of
sharp teeth or claws which are forced
into the ice, Just in front of the rear
wheel, between the two runners.
It Is not necessary to put the wheel
into motion before mounting. It
will stand by itself, and the rider can
come to a full stop without getting oft!.
The ice cycler need not confine his
travels to frozen bodies of water. He

the snow is deep and soft.
This new attachment appears a
little complicated but it really is a
very simple affair, and can be at
tached by any one having a slight
knowledge of machinery in a short
time. No tools are required beyond
those habitually carried in the tool
bag, and the bicycle is not damaged
in any way. Detaching the runners is
as easy a matter as putting them on,
and they are adapted to ladies' wheels
as well as to the diamond frames.

While some ministers are condemn
ing cycling their attention is called to
the following statements from a pre
sumably well informed trade expert:
"People cannot smoke on a wheel,
and the habit is inconsistent with the
'training* notion which the bicyclists
imbibes. The total product of cigars is
4,000,000,000. The consumption, reliable
figures show, is decreasing at the rate
of a million a day. The decrease since
the bicycle craze has reached its
present height averages no Ims than
700,000,000 a year. Do you know what
that means? It mean* a ihrinkasw of

Neighborhood saloons are deserted at
night. The erstwhile customers are on
their wheels. Suburban gardens where
there is dancing are not taking in the
cost of the music. The fact is, the
cycle, does not drink intoxicants. Any
r»ad-side or sea-side inn-keeper will
say this. The cyclist, when he does
drink, calls for lager or soft stuff. There
are a million people awheel on any
good Sunday. One out of a hundred
will call for whisky; that is, ten thou
sand whisky drinkers. Allowing each
man one drink, which will run sixty
to the gallon, and the consumption of
hard stuff by wheelmen will amount to
but 180 gallons a day. The remaining
990,000 will average one glass of lager,
soda, lemonade or ginger ale, of a half
pint each, or 62,000 gallons daily, the
consumption of non-intoxicants being
345 times as great as that of hard stuff.
