The AtMetio Side of Woman's Bloyo- Ilnar Latest Fashion In Letter Writing Stylish Autumn Coats The Baby Alarm Household Hints. In the first place. It ought to be a law for every woman that she should never ride a bicycle after a distinct feeling of weariness comes over her. For those who are beginning, especial ly, and In a measure for all women, there Is a danger of riding out a cer tain distance, and only turning to ward home when this feeling of wearl- uess comes on. In such cases the strain on the nervous system all the way home Is very great, and by the time tne ena or tne journey is reauii ed for It has become a journey by this timo th rlripr Is exhausted to such an extent that a severe headache or some more serious indisposition is tha ronnit 'PherA la no other reason for this than the fact that sho did not prescribe for herself a certain distance before starting out, which was not to be exceeded under any circumstances. No ordinary woman who rides for pleasure once or twice a wees buuuiu do over about ten miles at a time. This Is perhaps an hour's ride, that may be easily extended to an hour and a quarter before that distance Is cov erpri: and If she does not feel fresh and In a glow when she stops, she may be certain tnat sne nas nuueu too long. Naturally there Is that healthy tired feeling which anyone recognizes after athletic exercise, but It is quite different from and never to h mistaken for the weariness which comes from too much exertion and straining of the nerves ana muscies. Very few women have ever been in jured on a bicycle who kept to this rule, and limited their rides to nor mal distances. The limit of distance, which Is desig nated by the first feeling of weari ness, Is only a little more important than the limit of speed which the fe male frame is capable of undergoing under healthy exercising rules. Whether a man can ride at full speed for a long distance and still retain his good health is a doubtful question, but it does not particularly concern us In the present discussion. It Is quite certain, however, that no woman can keep up a high rate of speed for even a generous portion of a mile and not create the beginnings of Injuries. The added strength required to Increase your speed even a little after a certain amount of power has been expended Is out of all proportion to the resulfs. There Is no relaxation of the muscles between revolutions of the pedals, nor any let up on the nervous and muscu lar strain while the speed lasts. The heart Is far more taxed than one real izes at the moment, and that species of tingling or numbness In the nerves and muscles which often results Is only a sign that they have both been overtaxed. This danger is acquiring too much speed Is natural enough. The bicycle runs so easily on smooth asphalt or macadam that It Is a strong tempta tion to "scorch" Indeed, It is so strong a temptation that as soon as a girl has fairly learned to ride easily she has to put a deliberate check on her self to avoid dropping Into It.

Amply suportlng weary legs, the tabouret, together with an easy chair, furnishes a delightful substitute for the couch when resting and reading are to be combined. Physicians all agree that a woman should as much as practicable keep her legs on a level with the rest of the body, and occasiontl Indulgence in that mannish trick of placing them even higher would help amazingly to ward doing away with those tired feel Ings and that dragged sensation. Fashionable women, to whom the necessity of never showing fatigue and of ever looking their "best" has taught, the knack of acquiring a maxi mum of rest In a minimum of time, are fast falling into masculine habits of posture when In the seclusion of bed room or boudoir.

In the window of a curiosity shop on Madison street, East Side, is a sign reading, "Wedding dresses to hire." In a small room at the rear Is a big chest. In the big chest are trousseaus of all cuts, materials and sizes, to gether with veils, slippers, etc., to match. Some are a little the worse for wear, and time has rubbed the gloss off many. Still, they are fit for an emergency. The dealer said that some of the dresses had been worn by at least 100 brides, but that business has been dull of late.

The season for cutting corn fodder being close at hand, it may be well for farmers to get a set of these low metal wheels with wide tires. They can be had any size wanted from 20 to 68 Inches In diameter, with tires from 1 to 8 inches wide. By having low wheels enables you to bring the wagon box down low, saving one man in loading fodder, etc It Is also very convenient for loading and unloading manure, grain, hogs, etc., and will save In la bor alone their cost In a very short time. These wheels are made of best material throughout, and have every possible advantage over the high wood en whAla with narrow tires, and will outlast a dozen ot them. There will also be no resetting of tires necessary, and consequently no blacksmiths' bills to pay. Wide tires save your horses and prevent cutting up your fields.
