Sable Alcyoner Trot Her Fifth Tlaco Within Ten Days and Wins. W. M. Halsted's black mare Sable Aloyoner is the busiest if not one of the fastest trotters ln the country lust now. At the Mineola Fair, a week ago last Saturday, she trotted two raoos in one day. getting a part of the purse In each, despite tho fact that the tiro of her sulky ran off in ono of the heats. She was shipped to White Plains the following day: arrived there Monday, and on Tuesday trotted a race against the rast stallion Starklrk. Although beaten, she was the contending trotter throughout. By this time tho critics wore talking about Owner Halsted's "cruelty to animals." but the black mare continued to kick up her heels and eat everything offered to her between races, so she was started again after a rest of two days. This timo she won. trotting her second heat In 'J :23 V on n sandy half-mile trnck. Yesterday at Parkway tho busy little 1 black mare trotted her fifth race within ten days. William E.. a chestnut stallion from Amityville, won the first heat, but as soon as Hnlsted's mare got warmed up to her work sho went to the front and pulled down first money quite easily. Hor record dropped to 2:22S in the second heat. As the race progressed tho remarkable mare improved while the others went buck, and she beat them a dozen lengths ln the last heat, finishing the mile inn jog In the driving rain. Owner Halsted believes in makinchav while the sun shines, for ho said yesterday that he would start tho daughter of Alcyoner again to-day in the 2:'27 class. The che.itnut mare Kitty Newman, by Bed Wilkes, wits made a hot favorite in the 2:17 race for trotters on the strength of her record of 2:111. gained at Albany in a winning race a fortnight ago. Tho Brooklyn trotter, Ap Alert, defeated her cleverly yesterdav. trotting his three winning miles In 2.10K. 2:17V. 2:17S. The chestnut mare put up a strong fight for seven-eighths of a mile in the last two heats, but when Johnny Powers called on Ap Alert In the homestretch he came away and won in de cisive stvle. A. W. MoEiroy officiated as starter. The judges were E. J. O'Flynn. W. C. Allen nnd Alex. Newburger. C. A. Willis and A. .1. Keating held the timers.

Malcolm Forbes intended, It is said, to start the four-year-old son of Arlon ln the Transyl vania race at Lexington. But when the time camo to nnnii' starters Kico was in retirement, nnd Mr, Forbes selected Bingen to fill tho Transylvania engagement. Kico has now fully recovered from the effects of his overdose of leg wash, and his mile In 2:0HV at Louis ville last week Indicates that he Is fast enough to hold his own with Eagle, Flanagan, Culd. Askoy and all the rest. Meanwhile, however, Bingen has developed wonderful speed, clip ping three seconds from his August record nnd trotting tho fastest mile of the year, so that the Boston sportsman will probably be repre sented by the nest horse In his stable after all. At the end of the trotting season Heeretary W. C. Allen of the Parkway Driving Club Is go ing to call a meeting of track managers with a view to forming a compact circuit of half-mile track meetings for the campaign of lHt). Mr. Allen says he expects to arrange a circuit con tinuing from May until November, with no shipment of more than fifty miles between meetings. Managers of the principal half-mile tracks in eastern New York, New Jersey.Penn sylvunia and Connecticut will bo invited to co operate.

Interesting Wheel Rare at Davnbnrjr Fair Precautions Needed to Counteract F.ffeots of Autumn Dust President Potter of the League Talks Abont the Outlaws. At this Reason of the year, when the roads re at their best, because the loose surface dirt has been compacted by the September rains and congealed by the chill of autumnal nights, the hardest proposition that the cyclist has to encounter Is dust. The dust of the fall Is more vicious than that of summer, be cause it is coarser. It Is not so soft and does not fly so freely, but it Is more gritty in Its character. A little of it goes a long way. and Inflicts more damage than the pulverized loam that spreads everywhere under the Influence of August sunshine and gentle breezes. In consequence, this is the time when bicycles need the most attention. While It is the finest time for riding, as testified to by the spirit and sentiment of riders, it is none the less a faet that the machines at this season suffer most from the'usage they get on the road. Instead of powdered dust it Is sand that enters the bearings and other parts of wheels where trouble can bo made. Qrlt Is not so penetrating as the impalpable dirt, which ia half vegetable and mineral refuse that flies In summer, but it takes go very much less to make more trouble that no rider should forgot the Importance of cleaning and lubricating the steel machine that carries him or her. A grain of grit in the bearings will do more damage than a drachm of dust. Give a little grit a gummy surface in which to lodge Itself, and the finest bearings In the world will become rough and render Improper servloe. The object of ball bearings Is to make a wheel run smoothly. In the broad term of the trade, there are many "dust proof" beatings, but me chanics recognize tho fact that, in the flueness of faot, there are none such. It behooves fall riders to recognize this and guard their bicycles accordingly. The grlttlness of the road at this season Is more to be considered than all the dustiness of summer. Bight now bicycles should be cleaned and lu bricated oftener than in the months when the temperature is higher. In the cleaning process the men who are hired by the week ln bioyole stores do better work than any novice. They are expert and aro familiar with many handy little tricks that can be acquired only through years of experience. There is, however, a satis faction in taking one's own wheel apart and cleaning every portion and setting it up again that makes the machine more beloved and actually adds to the rider's Interest in the sport. This is the time for overhauling bicycles by those who Intend to ride until snow files. To get a bicycle prop erly set up and properly adjusted In Its running gear means that it will run all right and require much less attention In the course of Its fall career. The Scriptural admonition of "train up a child ln the way he should go" applies very peculiarly to certain machines. especially the light and inanimate yet sensi tive kind that is known as the modern bicycle. Many children who are trained In tho way they should go grow up and run right away from their teachings, but the bicycle as a machine depends entirely upon its parental preparation and follows absolutely the imparted impulses of its proprietor. If it is thoroughly cleansed from Its infantile summer habits and properly adjusted for Its youthful sorviceofthe fall, it will run well Into tho manhood and old age of its winter experiences and do It gracefully. It Is well enough for thoso who do not llko to make any kind of manual exertion to turn thelr bicycles over to a tradesman to clean and adjust. Tho tradesmen need a lot of that kind of business, but it Is well worth the whllo of every rider to take his or her bicycle apart on just some one occasion and clean it ana put it together again. It is a common notion that ono must have some mechanical knowledge to do such a thing, but this Is at par with the no tion of the unexperlmontal man. who says he cannot build a lire In a kitchen stove or modern furnace. It does not require mechanical talent to take apart and reassemble the movable parts of a bicycle. It requires only that primi tive quality which grandmothers call "gump tion." After n rider, one of either sex. has thoroughly overhauled a wheel, he or she will have an entirely different regard for it. It is about the same as earing for a horse or permit ting a groom to do it always. The owner who does It oni-e is brought Into more intimate as sociations with his steed nnd after that knows better how to tell tho groom what to do. There are I ii tin peculiarities about a blcyole to be learned by those who once null apart and clean and put together their own wheels, and which the experts of the shops, who proceed on general principles, do not appreciate. Even t bough the habit to give one's bicycle Into the hands of the shopmen is continued, it is best to have had the experience of having on some occa sion learned all its peculiarities. Then explicit instructions can be given, similarly as in tho case of a stnblemnn who has to groom and feed ahorse. All horses are horses and all bicycles ore bicycles, but each is worth the Intimate nc nuaintaDce of its owner, and tho time of nil times to have such acquaintance Is in the early fall, when the roads are finest and the grit is hardest. A perplexing question, of which there Is even now little prospect of its ever being settled, is that of lubricants for bearings. The argument between riders concerning tho merits of differ ent oils is interminable. Some prefer a thick oil because it lastx and does not have to be so fre quently replenished. Others favor n thin oil that has to tie used little nnd often, because it does not clog like the thicker oils. Still others favor a dry graphite powder and others vase line. All animal oils will get gummy with age, and often hearings rub together and click as if a ball was broken simply because the drv. gummy coating left by an oil has collected dust. A pure, thin vegetable oil that is good for guns nnd typewriting machines and does not harden or amalga mate with dust makes an excellent lubricant, but such a kind has to be renewed very often because of Its thinness. Petroleum oil. In its reduced form of vaseline, ha always proved to be an excellent lubricant on small beatings. It is free from grit, does not collect dust, and does not leak out. thereby giving long service without replenishment. J.or tho purposes of manufacturers who have wheels on exhibition at shows it is not in good standing because its density does not permit wheels to "balance" as well as a thin oil. The objections to It by practical riders are that It is a difficult and disagreeable job to apply it. Quite a few prefer above all other things the solid lubricants, of which powdered graphite is first and chief. Lubricants of this order, if free from grit, follow tho llrst principles of lubrication, but the' objection to graphite, mica, chalk, soupstone nnd their alfieB Is that they are al most never freo from grit and are not easily applied to "dust proof" bearings. The pre ponderance of testimony, from both theory and practice, seems to be In favor of the refined vegetable oils, of which there are several prep arations, and the "reduced" mineral oils, of which vaseline is typical. It Is an apt ability for those who take apart their wheels to know how to roll a small cor nucopia from writing paper. Several such affairs are exceedingly handy to empty ball bearings into while the cups and cones are being cleaned, nnd a few marks Indicating which belong to the left side and which to the right side of a hub or hanger can be easily made. It is always well to put all of the same balls hack into tho same races because thero are microscopical variations iu the balls aud In tho surfaces against which they turn that are firound awuy by the constant running. Balls n henritigs make a "run " for themselves, and it Is better that they should have It until the steel Is worn to tho limit than it is to change them. St. Louis. Oct. 4.

To THI Editor or Thk Sex Sir: It is too bad that something is not done to the two blocks on Hancock street, Brooklyn, between Howard avenue and llroadway. They are in a deplorablo condition, and there are only about one Inn hundred who ride over them, preferring to walk rather than run the risk of puncture or breaking their wheel in some hole or crevice. When there is so much monoy spent on other street, it seems as If something might be done to remedy this evil. It Is the only bad place betwoen l'atchogue. I,. I., and Coney Island except some ol the arossings. Even asphalt strips would be appreciated. This Is such a public thoroughfare for wheelmen t lint It should be fixed at once, even If they have to do It themselves by popular subscrip tion. There is a vacant lot ana car stable on one side, which prevents any Interest being taken by the owners. Qeobue H. IIennett. 1)07 HANUOCK STREET. Boston. Oct. 4. Word was sent here to-night to the effect that Mrs. A.M. 0. Allen, the cyclist, was injured near Smith Palmer, Mass., this afternoon and gave up the attempt to break the record between New York and this city. She collided with an other rider and was thrown, spraining her ankle. She was twenty minutes behind the record time at Springfield, so it is doubtful if she would have broken the existing reoord. This is the second time within forty-eight hours that an accident has befallen her in her attempt to create a new record. The prominent League official profess to regard the rebellion of tho circuit chasers as a storm in a teacup hardly worth passing atten tion. Home of the more experienced legisla tors advance plausible reasons, showing why the rupture neod not in any sense affect th" usefulness and stability of the I,. A. W. and a good many conservative neutrals also share the opinion that the revolt ing riders have started out on a very risky campaign. President I. B. Potter takes an un ruffled and philosophic view of the situation, and finds it more amusing than otherwise. In an Interview he said: ... "It Is almost too ridiculous for serious dis cussion, except among the racing men who have left a certainty fof an uncertainty and jeopardised their moans of livelihood. Tint Itni'ing Board of the League has endeavored to do its duty by these riders, but it also hud to consider the public, and the conservation of the siiort. Kaclng as an adjunct to the more important objects of the League Is Interesting aa long as it Is properly conducted and above suspicion. To run it properly tho League has had to maintain strin- Sent rules, and to enforce theso rules the acing Board has worked well and faith fully. It has acted as an impartial arbiter nn knotty questions affecting the rights of riders and of race promoters and endeavored to seo justlco done In every Instance. The riders wore protected as far as possible agninst promoters who failed to live up to their contracts or promises, and on tho other hand track assoclHtions running their business on a IcRltimttto basis could ulways count on the support of tho board whenever tho fault l;i v with tho racing men. The board lias lint! a hard time adjudicating between riders nnd promoters, but now it seems that these belligerent parties have elected to pool their issues and run the game as a sort of mutual benefit organization. It Is unlikely that nn enterprise on the lines proposed will command tho confidence of the public. Few respectublo citizens will he attracted by Sunday racing, for instance, nor by meets of such unsiiortsmanlike flavor as were run nt Madison Square Harden last winter. Mean while the League will go ahead with It more Important work of improving roads and fur nishing other important facilities for tho en joyment of the majority." ."
