BICYCLE BUYING
One of the immediate results of the
inicrei.se in street car fares in many
cities has been a wave of bicycle buy
ing; that is keeping the wheels hum
ming in bicycle factories. In1 the past
few weeks several bicycle plants that
have been closed for years have
opened their doors and resumed op
erations with big orders ahead.
As a means of getting back and
forth from work the bicycle seems tc
be winning back much of the pres
tige it enjoyed a score of years ago.
Men living, within a mile or two of
their work find they can pedal tt
business in a few minutes, and car
even get home at. the. lunch hour.
There are few factories today where
fpc-oial arrangements are- not made
for the storage of employees' wheel;
while the men are at work.
One of the most promising feature*
cf the bicycle business is the bi<
foreign demand, both for American
bicycles and tires. ?'New York Ever
