An Amateur Bicyclist Create Some Merriment. i ins morning about 10 o clock a young man, probably 22 years of age, appeared on Railroad avenue in the vicinity of Third street riding a two wheeler. At first sight one would have taken him to be drunk, but after a few very amusing stunts, it was easily seen that he was an over ambitious ama teur. He came dashing down Third street and endeavored to turn onto Railroad avenue, the turn was too short and he ended In a mix up with a wheel stand ink In front of the Golden Rule dry goods store. Undaunted, he gathered himself up from the sidewalk, extricat- ed his wheel from the other wheel, and was away in a made race down the -street. By the time he obtained good headway a cruel man blocked the way with a buggy, the riders feet slipped off his wheel and In his despair the j amateur steered straight into a tele phone pole in front of K. J. Post & Co.'s store. Quite a crowd had gathered by this time and each had a good laugh at the expense of the unfortunate cyclist. THE ISLET A KILLING.
