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

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

This Is perhaps an hour's ride, that

healthy tired feeling which anyone
recognizes after athletic exercise, but
It is quite different from and never to

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
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

of tingling or numbness In the nerves
and muscles which often results Is
only a sign that they have both been
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

a temptation that as soon as a girl

has to put a deliberate check on her
self to avoid dropping Into It. Har

ought to be universal. And the heavy
comforter ought to be banished with

log cabin and the backwoods. Tho
proper covering is a light-weight
blanket that can be frequently washed
and kept soft and white. Tucking the
bedclothes tightly is another custom

bed and making It almost air tight
only obtains among stupid peopTe,

Renting Bridal Finery.

gloss off many. Still, they are fit for
an emergency. The dealer said that
some of the dresses had been worn by

farmers to get a set of these low metal

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

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
