Will Add Zest to the Occasion—
Admirable Work of the 'SMS
The annual meet of the L. A. W. at
Louisville, extending from Aug. 10 to
Aug. 15, inclusive, is a matter of ab
sorbing interest to bicyclers all over
the land. There seems no doubt that
this occasion Is to be in magnitude and
magnificence, fully commensurate with
the great popularity and development
of the sport in this the banner year
of cycling. Kentucky has opened wide
her hospitable arms and offers a wel
come which is expected to be accepted
by 40,000 visiting wheelmen.
There appears to be no reason why
the most sanguine hopes for the sue-
W. w, •watts.
cess of the meet should not be realized.
The completion "of the " preparations
which had been In progress for months
past left little to be desired. This really
herculean work was largely accom
plished by the Louisville 1896 meet
club, under the leadership of the pres
ident, W. W. Watts. It had been esti
mated that $9,000 would be necessary
to provide for the comfort and enter
tainment •erf the visiting wheelmen,
and to secure ..the subscription of this
amount was an arduous undertaking,
but the Indefatigable meet club at last
accomplished it, and the working
equipment of the great cycling junta
The star feature of the meet will,
of course, be the races. Louisville
can well boast the fastest bicycle
track in the world. Fountain Ferry is
a name that has become famous in
connection with bicycle racing. More
records have been made on it than on
any other track in the world, and
from the time John S. Johnson began
by placing the mile record at 1:47 2-5,
in November, 1894, It has seen records
come and go.
The national championships will be

THE BICYCLE OF 1897;
It Will Differ From This Year's
■Wheel In Many Particulars.
From what can be learned by inquiry at
the various manufactories, next year's wheel
will differ from the 1896 brand in several
particulars. However, it is safe to say at the
outset that no effort will be made to cut
down the weight of the machine, as it seems
that, as far as the lightness is concerned,
the climax has been reached. There is one
thing, however, that will probably be insisted
upon — the fitting of a brake as an accessory
to every wheel. The aversion of some riders
to the present style of brake seems likely to
result in the Introduction of some new at
tachments which will be effective in bringing
a bicycle to a stop and at the same time not
mar the outlines of the wheel. The demand
for gear cases on wheels is also likely to
compel recognition from the manufacturer.
Lightweight gear cases for riders' similar to
those used in England will probably be pro
vided. A number of other minor changes are
also being considered by inventors and man

numerous, Indeed, have been the fail
ures that the general public has lost
faith in flying machines and said man
was not destined to fly. But the san
guine inventors persevere in their fas
cinating work and frequently proclaim
that all difficulties have been sur
mounted, and in a very short time the
skies will be traversed as easily and
safely as the country roads.
But while the scientists have been
plaguing themselves and the public
with air ships of various kinds a
young man of nineteen has gone out
of the beaten track of past experience
and devised a simple apparatus which
actually flies. Wheelmen will be inter
ested in the fact that the main prin
ciple of this device is taken from the
bicycle. The accompanying: illustra
tion is from a sketch made by the in
ventor, J. C. Ryder, of Richmond Hill,
L. 1., and gives a good idea of the
new machine which promises to revo
lutionize the "science" of aerial nav
igation. Mr. Ryder has actually flown
on his aeriaJ bicycle from Hempstead
to Richmond Hill. He rose to an alti
tude of several hundred feet and glided
along as easily as though running an
ordinary safety over asphalt pave
ment. The sensation of moving
through the air, he says, is very de
lightful, and he sees no reason why
his machine should not come into pop
GRAPHIC ACCOUNT OF TRIAL.
Mr: Ryder's account of his experi
ments and aerial trip is full of inter
est. He said to me yesterday:
"I experimented three years on a
flying apparatus and could not make
any headway, but on June 25, after a
month's haj-d labor, I made a model,
twenty inch-es long, with a cylinder of
silk and thick bamboo ribs. When in
flated with gas this cone-shaped thing
had to have fifty pounds of anchorage
to keep it from rising. I then built
two aluminum sweeps, two feet long
by ten inches wide, with a half-inch
steel bar, twelve inches long, for an
axle, and clamped it to the bottom of
the cone. Then I took a piece of alum
inum, twenty inches long, and adjust
ed a handle bar and seat, and attached
a sprocket wheel and pedals at the
bottom of the rod. I fixed a wheel
geared to one hundred to revolve the
sweeps, and a chain to propel the gear
wheels, as well as a one-eighth inch
bar for use as a piston. After I got
the machine fixed in this way the mo
mentous question of whether it would
fly or not was still to be settled. 1
pumped the gas into the cone and
started it off. It rose steadily, and
then, to my great surprise, it flew in
the teeth of a gale of wind blowing
twenty miles an hour. I had an alarm
clock, with an attachment to let out
the gas at a given time, on the ma
chine. When the clock gave out the
gas escaped, and the model came down
to the ground.
"I then built a machine to carry five
hundred pounds. On July 20 I was
ready for my next experiment. I
pumped the gas into the cone, seated
myself in the loop, cut loose from the
anchorage and at once rose two hun
dred feet In the air. Then I worked
the pedals against the wind and start
ed for my home, accompanied by a few
friends whom I had left on earth be
low. I cannot explain the delightful
sensation of sailing through the air or
the easy motion of the machine. 1 flew

The method adopted :By the authorities of
Columbus, 0., to putj-aiijend to "scorching"
on the public streets is ' somewhat novel and
moreover is said to Tai effective.
It having been discovered that In order to
scorch a rider must "hump himself," the
city fathers went at once to the root of the
matter by constructing ap ordinance-, which
reads, in part, as follows:
"Whoever, while riding any bicycle or tri
cycle, shall sit in a "bent form, leaning for
ward with his or her head inclined so as to
pcever.t a view of pe^so^fe on or crossing
any of the streets, t&or#igh fares or public

rheumatism, gravel, dyspepsia, headache and
constipation are the outward and visible
signs of its inaction in those who live too
well, a sedentary life. The prescription of
a bicycle and the recommendation to use it
wisely and well works like a charm in such
cases, and in all the sympathetic ailments
which arise from too much "acid" in the
system. It is Interesting to note that cycling
sometimes has the effect of thinning the
obese and fattening the thin, and this may
partly be explained by Murchison'a observa-
tlons that excessive leanness, as well as ex
cessive corpulence, Is often caused by Inac
tion of the liver, and the stimulus of regular
exercise, setting the functions of that organ
right, causes the disappearance of what was
only a symptom.— British Medical Journal.
Wheeimen in the United States, generally
speaking, have little Idea of the existing
cycling conditions in Mexico. The pastime is
more popular than one would suppose. Take
San Luis Potosi. for instance. This is a
place of 75,000 Inhabitants, situated in ehe
mountains about 200 miles to the northwest
of the City of Mexico. It is 6.000 feet above
sea level, and hasn't had a drop of rain for
seven y«ars. Drinking water is not obtaina
ble, and everybody drinks wine. While on
a visit there a short time ago, R. P. Searle,
the famous road racer of Chicago, took a
ride in and about the streets of the city. He
found the roads only fair, while the atreeta
of the city were very bad. The pastime, how
ever, is growing in favor, and it Is believed I
that in time the use of the bicycle will result
largely in securing better roads, as has al
ready been the case in various sections of

A further indication of the progress of
civilization among the Indians of the far

working satisfactorily. Scorching and riding
, without a light are considered minor misde
meanors, and any bicycle that may be ridden
is of suffieknt value to cover any fine that
may be imposed for such a breach of the
regulations. The only persons likely to ob
ject to such an ordinance are those who rent
bicycles to the public, but they must find
