It is with pleasure that The Arui'S
calls the attention of tbe public to the
energy and ability, coupled with abso
lute business fairness, displayed
by C. A. Spencer in the upbuilding of
bis bicycle aud sporting goods trade.
Beginning very modestly iu 1892 with
a single make of wheels, he has in
creased bis facilities and added to his
stock. until last vear the entire base

has fitted it up for a ealesrooni, re

The store on Second avenue is cen

an artistic manner, virv pleasing to

partitioned off a repair room fitted up
with all tbe appliances and devices
used in the business for which it is
designed, including electric motor.

In 1893 Mr. Spencer took the agency
for the Stearns bicycle, making it his
leader, which it has remained ever
since. When one notices tbe number
of Yellow Fellows on tbe streets, and
remembers tbat they have, almost
without exception, passed through
bis hands, he can realize tbe business
Mr. Spencer has done in handling this
particular make of wheel. Among
other machines handled are the Syr a.
cuse, ratee Crest, Featberstone, Trin

Besides bicycles, Mr. Spencer keeps
the very best makes of shotguns,
rines, revolvers, gymnasium supplies
fishing tackle, cutlery, ammunition,
sweaters, golf goods, supplies for
baseball, football, basketball, tennis
and polo, and numerous other arti
cles; in fact, everything tbat properly
comes under the head of sporting
goods. Uoly a small portion of tbe
stock is exhibited in tbe store for lack

Lvie, Mr. Spencer is building up a
arge jobbing business, particularly In
bicycles' and golf goods. Further
changes are contemplated tbat will
bring tbe store and salesrooms closer
together, enabling customers to more
easily examine tbe entire stock. While
Mr. Spencer cannot be personally at
his place of business all tbe time, he
has been very fortunate in securing
the services of two thoroughly relia
ble young men, Fred Jidle and ill
Mooney, who attend faithfully to the;
business. The former is an expert

and risen through their own efforts to
a high standing; bnt few, if any. are
more worthy to be pointed out as ex.

ability, coupled with integrity and
common sense, can accomplish in
