"Snoring may be inconveniently obtru

mark of a high stage of civilization as is
the sleeping car itself. You may take it
for a fact that all the wild and inferior

right, there, and the savage person who
vocalizes his sleep stands a very good
chance of learning that snoring Is not

the Expert Rider — Late Spring
Did Not Spoil tlie SewMOH—Cycle
President A. L. Mace, of the Century
Road club, gives the G 1 ob c an interest
ing- review of the departures made in cen
tury and long distance riding during the
season, in this state as well the East and
South. He say 3:
"Century and long distance road riding
opened up very late in Minnesota this
spring on account of the lingering effect
of an unusualiy cold and stormy winter.
Some of the few who look with disfavor
upon this style of cycling, took advantage
of this lull in the whirring of the wheels
to predict that the century rider with his
'bars.' was going out of style, and that,
before many seasons, the country road
ride woulfl become so unpopular with the
wheelmen that such a performance as a
•century' would be attempted only by a
few of the old ' has beens' who 'don't
know how to enjoy moderate riding.' AJas
for these early predictions of the cycling
pessemlst, this has turned out to be the
greatest year for road riding ever known
in this country. Interest Is not confined
to any particular state or section either,
but seems to be at high tide in all parts
of the Union.
"The Nerw York Journal century run
run over the famous Long Island course
last June turned out 650 wheelmen in
line, and quite recently a joint run in
New York given under the auspices of the
Royal Arcanum and New York Firemen's
association had the unprecedented num
ber of 1,000 wheelmen in line at the start.
Club runs in Massachusetts have also
been patronized this year to an extent
hitherto unknown the same is true of
New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Illinois,
Indiana and Wisconsin.
"Up to this lime there has been little
century riding reported from the Southern
states and the California district, the rea
son, however, is obvious. The wheeling
season Is just about to begin in those sec
tions. The mileage and century reports
will be rolling' in from these favored sec
tions of our country long after the Minne
sota enthusiast has stored his wheel in
the attic and is plodding down to his office
or store through the snow drifts!
"But it is of the Minnesota season I
wish to write at this time. The Minne
sota road rider is now in his element, and,
I should add. 'her element for a goodly
proportion of our best road riders in this
state belong to the gentler sex. Some of
the most remarkable feats of wheeling
which have been recorded this year have
been made by women riders, and I wish
to remark in passing, that, contrary to
the oft expressed opinion that long dis
tance riding is Injurious, the lady mem
bers of the Century Road club are the
heartiest, the healthiest, and the happiest
class of cyclists in the state. They are
trained for distance riding almost with
out being aware of it, and soon be
come so accustomed to long trips
awheel, that a century or even a
"double" is made a pleasure instead of
"Of our lady riders. Mrs. Mcllrath, of
St. Paul, is certainly entitled to first
place. June 26 she accomplished the first
"quint" century ever ridden by a woman
in America, or the world, for that, mat
ter. . ■■; ■
"The rules governing "quintV century
riding are that the entire distance (500
miles) must be covered by wheel 1 or
afoot over road 3 (not race tr"acks) in
sixty hours elapsed time from start to
finish. Mrs. Mcllrath completed the dis
tance in fifty-eight hours and-forty min
utes and finished in fine condition, seem
ingly unaware of the marvelous nature
of her performance. Her great ride at
tracted attention to Minnesota from all
over the country among the cyclists, and
riders began to look to the North Star
state for more record-breaking: feats.
They did not have to wait long to be
astonished and dumfounded again, for
July 30. A. A. Hansen. the 'Rainmaker,'
of Minneapolis, started on a race against
time for 1,000 miles over the Snelling
'Tonka century course, which has since
been re-christened the 'Hansen course.'
He was successful in his great attempt
and established state road records from
100 miles up to 500; national road records
from 500 up to 1,000 miles, and the
world's record for 1,000 miles, which was
formerly held by T. A. Edge of London,
England, at 105 hours 19 minutes. Han
sen reduced these figures to 929 hours 26
minutes and became the champion long
distance rider of the world. This ride
can be called the greatest cycling feat
of the year, showing as it does that tho
Northwest can "produce men of the neces
sary stamina find ability to take .front
rank among the athletes of the world.
While I am on the subject of multiple
centuries I wish to mention the very
meritorious ride of Miss Minnie Cum
mings of Minneapolis who, on June 25,
succeeded in accomplishing a quadruple
century in 47 hours 32 minutes.
"This performance la particularly re
markable from the fact that the young
lady had never, previous to this ride,
made more than a single century at a
time. The "quad." however. v~~ placed
her well up in line and she is considered
one of the best road riders in the state.
Mrs. M. C. Harrison, of St. Paul, who
stands fourth in the State Century com
petition, is another rider who merits
special mention. Joining the club less
than a year ago. she has ridden more
centuries under club rules since then
than any other lady in the Northwest,
with the single exception of Mrs. James
"VlcTlrath. of St. Paul, who rank 3 as the
'Queen of the Wheel.'
"The first century in Minnesota for
the season of 1599 was ridden April 12,
by James Mcllrath local centurion of St.
Paul. Mac made the ride under most
discouraging conditions of road and
weather. Thrnush snow and ice and
mud he succeeded in hig attempt and his
first bar this year bears an earlier date
than that of any other rider in this
state. The honor of making the first cen
tury is becoming much sought after by
riders and the competition among them
is very keen. The ride of Mr. McTlrath
attracted considerable local attention at
the time and he will be sure of favorable
and honorable mention In the state cen
turion's annual report next January.
Just one week after Mcllrath's ride Mrs.
Mcllrath made the second century of
the season and the first ridden by a
woman: she rode over the regular St.
P^il-'Tonka eenturv course.
Mr. Archie Matheis, who has charge of
the road records department of the Cen
tury Road club, in this state, says that
more applications have been mride for
"bars" this season than ever before—so
far as club records go—and no one would
doubt this statement in the least after
witnessing the crowds of wheelmen
"checking in" at any of th° numerous
checking stations along the course on a
pk-asant Saturday or Sunday afternoon
during the past throe months.

a very enjoyable one. Tho entire party

well pleased with the trip.
May 10, H. C. Gurnee, of Minn apoli?,
rode the tirst quint ceatury ever mad.! in
Minnesota, finishing in 4!> hours and 31
minutes. Mr. Guraee's Cairn for the na
tional record for 500 miles was in the
hands of the record committee of the Cen
tury Road club under investigation when
H&nsen made his sensational 1.000-mi c
rule. As Hanson's claim for the s::me
distance showed the 500 miles to have b en
ridden in 83 hours and SJ minutes, Mr.
Gurnee voluntarily withdrew his previous
"The 100-mile state reco d is held by A.
A Hansen at 5 hours 25 minutes. He
also holds all other mileage records up
to 1,000 miles. The century course reu

rath, of St. Paul, at 15 hours and 12 min

ord is held by Louis Nifiderhofer, of Min

more than probable that several ot ilia
above figures will be lowered within the
next four weeks, as the very best part oi

THE YARJ) STICK.
Years r>f Careful Experiment Were
Required to Perfect It.
"People who handle the yardstick have
but little idea of the years of study and
experience that were necessary to secure
the standard yard measure," observed
an official of the coast survey to a Star
reporter. "Bird, a famous scientist,
made the first standard yard, in 1760, but
the Euglish government did not legalize
it until 1824. Ten years afterward, when
the house of parliament in London was
destroyed by fire, the standard yard was
lost, and England was again without a
standard yard of length. Sheepshanks
next made a standard yard measure,
which the English government adopted,
and, so that it could not be again de
stroyed by fire, four authorized copies
were made of it. One of these was de
posited in the royal mint, another in the
Royal society, another in the observatory
at Greenwich and the fourth was im
bedded in the walls of the new house of
parliament. The standard yard meas
ures which are owned by the government
are copies of the original, one of which
is owned by tHfe -toast survey. The
United States navM! observatory has one
also. The delicacy 6f its construction
may be gathered^ntfy' the fact that a
change of temperfettire- of one-hinulredth
of a degree Fahi**«fcelt has been found
to produce a sfctisllile effect on the
length of the barf* 1"- 1

cause they are tne standard, because for
ail practical purposes the standard inch
can be and Is used. Thus there are no
serious consequences arising trom it and
never can be, a mere comparison or' the
various yard sticks and foot rules in gen
eral use wiil show that but few of them
agree, th<r differences between them vary
ing all the way from one-thirty-seconu of
an inch to the foot down to one-hun
dredth of an inch.
"The cost of the construction of the
original suuidard yard measure Involved
the labor of Bird and his assistants for
nearly six years. Sheepshank was eleven
years in producing the accurate copies
which he made from Bird's original meas
urements. Some years ago, during a
congressional investigation of the coast
survey, it came out that the standard
yard measure owned by the treasury de
partment and kept at the coast survey
at times was used as a stick to keep a
window sash up. That was a most out
rageous calumny, as was the charge that
went with it, that the standard gallon
measure was used now and then to send
out for beer for some of the employes of
the office. The coast survey owns a set
of standard measures, but they have
never been used as growlers, I assure you,
and never will be, as the man who made
the charge well knew."

ch'i one move an hour is playing reck
lessly, like a novice. Toward the end of
the game players will sit and look at tho
board for a whole day, at the end of
which "white" puts down a checker.
Then he suffers a night of remorse and
agony, knowing he has. made a mistake.
The Anglo-Saxon race probably does not
produce more than one intellect in a
generation capable of entertaining all
the possible combinations dependent on a
single move; the Mongolian race produces
about 100 in ono generation. The patience,
memory and expansive, retentiveness of
mental retina required for the study are
made and not born. When the Chinese
system of education, of committing thou
sands of alphabetical symbols and tomes
of recondite philosophy to memory is
abolished in favor of modern science
wei-ch'i will be relegated to the limbo of
lost arts. It is an intricate game.
By Which a Clever Man Made a Llv-
Ins by Eating Oysters.
New Orleans Times-Democrat.
"I used to know a young man here who
made a living by eating oysters," said
one of a little group about the counter of
the Gunewald last night. "Ate them on a
wager, eh?" asked an Englishman in the
party. "No," replied the first speaker,
"he had a much better scheme than that.
He would stroll into an oyster bar—you
know how many there are in New Or
leans—and order a dozen on the deep
shell, always selecting a time when sev
eral customers were present. After swal
lowing two or three he"—
"Two or three customers?" interrupted
the Englishman. "Naw!" said the story
teller, frowning, "two or three oysters.
After he put them away he would stop
all of a sudden and feel in his mouth.
'Look here!' he would sing out to the
bartender, 'what kind of things do you
keep in your oysters, anyhow? I've nearly
broken a tooth!' With that he would
take a beautiful big pearl from between
his lips. Of course there was no question
ing the genuineness of a gem in that way,
and everybody in the crowd would look
envious. Some one was morally certain
to make a guess as to its value. 'Oh
well,' the oyster eater would say, 'I
don't know anything about pearls, and
I'd be glad tc sell this one for $5.'
"I don't think he ever failed to make
a trade on the spot, and as soon as he
got the five In his inside pocket he would
saunter out and work another bar. He
used to find about four pearls a weok,
and as long: as he kept it down to that
the game was perfectly safe. But he
grew avaricious at last, and found so
many that folks got suspicious < and he
considered it healthy to leave for another
fishery. He bought the pearls by the
gross from a house In New Jersey. They
were very pretty pearls, and cost him
about Sty- cents a piece, net. I have one
in a scarfpin now."
F. A. Sales, of Providence, R. 1., has
just been sued for the possession of what
is said to be the oldest bell in the coun
try. Originally a convent bell in Amster
dam, it was captured and used by the
British navy as a ship's bell until Aug.
19, 1812, when the Guerriere lowered her
colors to the constitution. After knock
ing around for decades with other cap
tured naval stores, this old bell was sold
in New Orleans for junk. The late S. A.
Smith, an ardent antiquarian, bought it
:)-,id tonk it to Rhode Island. The bell 13
of a dull, greenish bronze color, about
eighteen inches around its mouth, and
about fifteen Inches high, with a project
ing crown. It is made of very thick
metal, compared with modern bells of the
s.-ime dimension. It is possible that this
thickness of the me'.al is the of Its
remarkable softness of tone-
