in the work of the Lincoln county

largely on the increase the pres

In the afternoon Prof. Orr Ied!the

To-day he resumes his subject and

It is needless to say that he suc
ceeded in arousing a
great deal of
interest in his work.

At the free silver meeting last
Saturday, Judge Neville, one of the
speakers, made the statement that
only seven and one half per cent of
the people of this country owned
their homes free from debt, and the
crowd cheered him just as though
they believed it. The judge is
either ignorant or made a willful
mistatement. The fact is that
nearly thirty-five per cent of the
people owning homes hold them
free from debt, and only a little
over thirteen per cent of the homes
of the United States are mortgaged.
When a speaker makes a statement
that is as far from the truth as this
one he is certainly not entitled to
the confidence ot the public and car

There can be.no question that one
ot the most important parts of abi-
cycle is the tire. It Has to bear the
brunt of the work, is constantly
coming in contact with destroying
elements, and generally receives the
least care from the rider. The im
portance of the work it lias to do
was easly recognized by makers of
bicycles, however, and they -have
given mucn attention to- this im
portant adjunct of the wheel.
There are today, perhaps, thirty
different styles of bicycle tires on the
market, all ot which vary in detail
As to their various merits,, theories
are of little value; actualexperience
is the only way to- determine this
question. Unless an article gives
satisfaction, demaud for it . soon
ceases. After a test of over six
years, during which time double-
tube and single-tube tires have
been marketed, at least three
fourths of all the riders in this
country demand and ride double-
The leading firm in the United
States, and in the entire world, in
the manufacture of double-tube
tires, is Morgan & Wright, Chicago.
Their history is interesting. The
first pneumatic tire the rags-and-glue
kind was giving trouble, and
Morgan & Wright stepped in- to fill
a great public want. They fur
nished a tire that could be easily
taken from the rim to be repaired.
That was the principal require
ment in those days besides the
usual requirements of speed: dur
ability and comfort.
That was several years
Single-tube tires had been pushed
in Europe, and were failing and the
same effort was being started in
this country. The Morgan- &
Wright double-tube tire quickly
proved its superiority with the re
sult stated above The quick-repair
inner tube which is this
years's standard feature of all of
this firm's tires, has made the po-
tsition of of double-tube tires prac-
trcally invincible by making it
quick and easy for the riders to se
cure at the roadside, a permanent
repair" a thing admittedly impos
sible in the majority of single-tube

Some fatal disease is wiping out
hogs in this vicinity at a lively rate,
but no one seems to know the na
ture of the epidemic It was
thought by some that it was chol
era, but others think, different.
The doctors killed one of H. M.
Sullivan's pigs" and the post-mortem
revealed that the blood in the
region of the heart, and in some of
the larger arteries was clotted.
The disease made its appearance,
about ten days ago, and. hogs af
flicted with it die in a couple of
days. So far the disease has only
appeared in this immediate vicinity
but as it has every appearance of
being contagious it may spread
over the county before it runs out;
