heart goes bat k with all my thoughts

THE BICYCLE RACES.
The Tournament at tlie Ilavenpnrt Fair
The bicycle tournament in the
Davenport fair grounds yesterday.
was witnessed by about 2.0iU people.
There were some close contests and
exciting finishes, and the trnek
record was broken by W. C. Smith in
the mile open. The county cham
pionship was one by Chris Koysehou.
after being held for the oast vcar bv

'I he last event was marred bv an
accident that might have been at
tended with serious results. The
Democrat describes it: Three
riders started Iioysciioii at the ti
yard mark. Adams' at 75 and Clifford
at 12o. H, the lirst mile Adams and
lioyschoti overtook Clifford, and in
the lirst half of the second, l.ovschou
passed both the others. In both the
other events in w hieh !.; competed,
Adams had shown himself a strong
rider, and along the tretch at the
end of the third lap he gathered him
self for spurt. It was jn-t at that
moment that William Web-ter. for
merly of KuiValo. whom the city di
rectory now locates at Davenport as
a traveling insurance agent, threw
his hat into the lir.e of riders. It
was apparently aimed at Clfford, but
passed between him and Adams.
The latter was shooting for an open
ing left by Clifford next the fence,
but before he could got through, the
wheels collided, and in the absence
of a U tter reason for the collision
the blame was placed on Webster
and his hat. The crowd made a
good many uncomplimentary remark-
about his foolishness as it
rushed to t he place where the two
riders were sprawled out on the
track, tangled up in wire spokes,
handle bars ami sprocket wheels.
Adams had gone forward squarely on
his face, and thought his nose was
bimken. but it wasn't. It was. how
ever, bleeding profusely, and he felt
sore in one shoulder and hip. Clif
ford's only hurt was a sprained
wrist, which had on a former occa
sion been broken.

A very pretty contest was that be
