Complaint is often made against bicycle riders on the sidewalks about town It will be well to remember that the city ordinance on the regu lation of Buch riding, rules that no rider will be allowed on the walks within thre? blocks of the intersec ion of Main and Franklin streets, aud beyond such distance, when the rider is using a walk he is obliged to dismount tweiity feet from any per son on such walk. He is also obli ged to not exceed a limit of six miles un hour,, and to use an alarm hell, which shall be fastened to the mach'ne, and after dark, when rid ing, to have attached a lamp. The penalty _.frr disobeying this ordin ance is not less than one dol lar nor more than §10. In a num ber of instances, four or five ridera will follow .each other about town after dark, tho one in front using a lamp and the remainder of the- pro cession leaving their' bicycles in darkness, and furthermore, disregard the practice of dismounting or warn ing the pedestrian of their approach iu any way, save by a whistle, which seldom given until the rider has pissed and oftentimes collission uarrowly averted.

He says that now the matter will be forced by progress of law. Not only the dam at Hopkinton, but those at Monticello and other ..points down the river will be brought to time for the same neglect of duty. The stat ute provides for a consideradle fine for every day that the work is delayed after the completion of the notice. Notloubt the establishment of iish ways will in a few years tend to re stock the river hereabout, for it will permit the Mississippi river iish of all kind to ascend for spawning.
