They think they see in it a se rious menace to the well-being of the rising1 generation. It has been the origin of a new form of disease, which they denominate kyphosis bicyclista rum. which, being rendered into plain, everyday American, means the bicy clist's stoop. The acquirement of this stoop, they tell us, is not a mere mat ter of habit, which, with ordinary watchfulness, may be guarded against or thrown off at pleasure. It is a real disease, the evolution of which is like ly to give us a round-shouldered, hunchbacked race in the ncai future. Nor is this the worst. The bent posi tion which is assumed by bicyclists, in order to secure the greatest amount of power over their machines and to at tain the, highest degree of speed while running them, is attended with an un natural flexion of the spine which ap pears in the region of the back and causes not only unsightliness in form but in boys of fourteen years and under is fraught with serious and possibly fatal consequences. In those over that age the result of the stoop is to produce permanent curva ture of the spine and consequent deformity. It has also malign effects on the heart, lungs and other vital organs, the free and natural working of which is interfered with by the un natural form acquired. No good rea son is forthcoming why this condition of affairs should exist. The fight of these physicians is not against the bi cycle itself, but merely against the popular method of using it. The doc tors fully recognize and freely admit that in itself the bicycle may be not only a delightful means of recreation and a useful mode of locomotion but a pleasant method of ministering to the physical -well-being through healthful exercise and the enjoyment of an abundance of fresh air. What they complain of is that the ambition of the average bicyclist of the day is not the securing of health nor the enjoyment of outdoor exercise, but the attain- I ment of such proficiency and speed in the working of the machine as will make its owner conspicuous among his fellows. This is a record-breaking age, and nowhere has this record breaking mania taken a firmer hold than among the bicyclists of the day, both professional and amateur. No body will have to discard his bicycle to escape kyphosis bicyclistarum. All that is required is that an erect pos ture be maintained while the bicycle is being used, and such a posture it is quite possible to maintain. Clementine Bind was the first Vir ginia woman to engage in newspaper work. She was the widow of William Rind, of whom Jefferson says in a let ter: "Until the beginning of our revo lutionary disputes we had but one press, and that having the whole busi ness of the government and no com petitor for public favor nothing disa greeable to the governor could be got into it. We procured Rind to come from Maryland to publish a free paper." After the death of her hus band Clementine Rind kept up the paper, with the assistance of Jefferson and Patrick Henry, till her death in 1774. They obtained for her the colonial printing and enabled her to support herself and her four children. Cabeful inquiry into circumstances antecedent to collapse during' torrid weather shows that in rare cases only has actual exposure to the sun been responsible for the disaster, and it is a fact that nearly as many cases occur after sunset as at midday. Eating1 too "heartily of heating- foods, with free draughts of hot coffee, is justasdan jperous as exposure to the sun, and it is a well known fact that the scholars in two large public schools in England who are never allowed to wear hats, indoors or out, are never badly affected by the heat. A Feench physician, who has studied the habit of nail-biting- carefully and scientifically for some years, announces that the practice, which he dignifies with the name of onychophagy, pre vails to a deplorable extent among- the school children of Paris. More than one-fourth of the boy pupils in the public schools are confirmed nail-biters, and among the girls the percentage is larger. The habit, the doctor said, is , due to nervousness, and he proposes to cure it by means of hypnotic 'sug-g-es- 7 ." , ' j ... Statehood for Indians. There is said to be a movements on foot for admitting the five nations of civilized Indians, namely:, the Chero j kees, Chickasaws, Choctaws, Creeks 1 and Seminoles, to the privileges of statehood. The total number of these at the last census was 60,289. Nevada and Wyoming have both a smaller pop ulation than this, and it seems that good reasons may exist for carrying out this suggestion. It is a well known fact that those who have to trust to the generosity of others to look after their rights find little satis faction in their condition. There have been many allegations made with re gard to the perfidy of the pale-face brother in the matter of rations and other supplies, doubtless not without due and suCcient reason; but if the Indian is to share withf his negro brother the anomalous position of pos sessing the franchise without being able to avail himself of its chief bene fits, as is pretty generally admitted to be the case with the latter, what will be the benefit of statehood to the In dian? In a paper on "Vocations," a woman writer suggestively says: The fash ionable sin of to-day among women, whatever it may be, is not idleness. To a student from Norton or South Hadley, Wellcsley or Smith, idleness is simply an impossibility If years of thorough methodical, intellectual training have not formed habits and tastes ior work, they have resulted in nothing. The lazy woman in a wrap per, yawning half a day over a novel, may still exist in stories; out of them she is not often found. The reality and contrast is a trimly-dressed, quick stepping little lady, calling early at the butcher's and grocer's, considering the economies of beefsteak and of but ter bills, of wages and the price of coal, while on her way to her reading club. In some New Hampshire districts a new device has been introduced on guide posts. In place of the hand or ar row, pointing the direction of the town that i3 named on the board, the way is indicated by a stencilled picture of a galloping horse. Dit. P. D. Oswald figures it out that the population of this country a cen tury hence will be three hundred mil lion. Do thinks it lilrcly that the great city of the future will be in the Pied mont region. Excessive joy at bcinr appointed postmaster of New Baltimore, O., was, it is said, the cause of the death of Peter Baum a few days ago lie re ceived his commission one day and died the nest.

Ihcy receive from the state a bounty for every one killed. Although they are not fur-bearing animals their skins have some value. The treasurer of North Uaven paid bounties on forty eight seals that were brought in sever al days ago by two Indians. Very large amounts of private gold coins were formerly minted in this country by individuals. Rcid, of Georgia, the Bechtlcrs, of North Caro lina, the Mormons of Utah, and sev eral banking firms in California, all once did a larg-e business in this line. One of the most remarkable blind men in the world is John Uerreshoff, the Rhode Island boat builder, whose fast yachts have made his name known in all waters. Since he was only fif teen he has been absolutely blind. Mesico sends the United States every year ten million dollars' worth of hen iqucn rope, the cordage out of which hartrpocko arc rnade. It is said that Admiral Tryon, of the British navy, had dined and wined heavily before giving the fatal order which caused the sinking of the war ship Victoria and the sacrifice of over four hundred lives besides his own. If this statement be true, it adds one more to the long list of shocking calamities due to alcoholic indulgence. Mrs. Conrad Felham. a woman liv ing in moderate circumstances at To wanda. N. Y., is reported to have re cently fallen heir to about four mil lion dollars through the death of an uncle in India, whom she had not seen or heard of in many years. Such strokes of good fortune are rare, indeed.

Bureau of Information. 5 "The Burlington" has recentlv estab lished in a convenient quarter of its ele gant and commodious passenger station, at Ohicago. an office designed to afford travelers information on the thousand and one things they need to know, with regard to routes, rates, connections and accommodations. It has been placed in charge of an experienced man, supplied with all railway guides, maps and time tables, and is known as the "Bureau of Information." It is a place to which all travelers may apply for information and receive a fair and correct answer. This is the only office of the kind west of the sea-board cities, and it cannot but prove a. help and convenience to the traveling public. All trains of the "Burlington" enter and depart from this station, and the intelli gent and valuable service of the Bureau may be enjoyed by all patrons of this line. A special pamphlet will be issued by the "Burlington" in the near future, giv ing accurate information as to "How to get to the Worlds-fair grounds;" "How to secure rooms and board at the various hotels, boarding and lodging houses." Trustworthy agents will be at the C, B. & Q. depot in Chicago, to impart all information to visitors. Arrangements will probably be made by which some trains will be run direct to the World's Fair grounds without change or delay. De Witt's Witch H izel S live cures piles.
