TotheFditor of the At. mn Pi:eit:
In your issue of October J lth, I
notice' the following: "La-t summer,
two ladies, guests at lie Sanitarium,
were lined three dollars and cot each
for riding t heir bicycles on the sidewalk.

he settled." Although you mention
no names in this article" it seems to be
well known in Alma that the lady re
ferred to as ''leaving town" etc., is Miss
iiige. I therefore desire to state that
the article is false. Miss ( i age was a
guest sit the Alma Sanitarium. In the
month ot July last she and another
young woman were riding bicycles on
the sidewalk of your village without any
knowledge that there was an ordinance
fthat village prohibiting it. Suhsc
juently Miss Gage was informed by the
lerk ot the aniHriuni that si complaint
uid been made, still later she was
informed by Dr. Lancashire of the ham-
arium that he had interceeded, and
that the complaint had been withdrawn.
She was never sirrested on any such
harge, nor did she ever appear in court
with such a charge ;igain-t her, and she
was never lined ' nor any oth- r sum.
That after receiving the information sis
ibove stilted, she was in Alma three
