THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOIjUIU, OVEIBEK 1, 1894.
5 A PAIR OP SOT WHEELMEN. Griffiths and Terrill Now Visiting Honolulu. i;y C'itv Wheelmen They Hate Kerord How They Look ami Wht They y To Hare Here T. A. Griffith and II. F. Terrill, the famous California wheelmen who reached this place last week by the bark Albert, are delighted with Hono lulu. They are enjoying the vacation thoroughly and wish it would con tinue six monthU instead of termina ting in four week-. The-e young men are interesting. They are exrnents of a pastime that has developed in a most astounding fashion. Less than ten years ago a bicycle was a curi osity. Now the safety is u part of every day life. Few persons of genu ine spirit can resist the wheel. Next to sitting behind a team of L':2) trotter.-, riding a perfect bicycle at a scorching speed is a favorite sensation with peo ple who have a tinge of sporting in their blood. In Kurope and the United States and even in Hawaii the bicycle is of practical use. The inter est taken in America by the ladies ha3 assured the jxipularity and perma nence of wheeling. The silent steed notables now here make an interesting pair. The age of each is twenty-one. They are line looking young men. With them the wheel has proven a guard against all physical ill. They are pictures of health. Terrill is 5 feet 9J inches tall and weighs 161 pounds. He is the blonde of the team. Grilllth, the bru nette, is a trifle lighter and an inch taller. He weighs 153 iounJs. Tbey are fellow members of the Hay City Wheelmen's Club of San Francisco. Both were born in that city. Terrill is a member of the club directorate and Grimth is on the road board. The Bay Citys have 140 members. It is one of the most popular organizations on the Coast and one of the best known of bicycle clubs. Mr. Terrill is In the office of an architect as a draughts- man. -lie la a uiasi "A" iuu. means that he is not the agent of a bicycle company or the employee of a house handling machines. Terrill is an oarsman also and is acquainted In rowing circles along the Coast. He is regarded as a very valuable man In ho v crevv Mr. Griffiths, who is the son ol ' the captain of the Albert, is a B" Class man. This is because ho is in the bi cycle business, being connected with one of the leading Kan irancisco houses. Ho can ride when and where he likes, in the amateur class. A new wrinkle in the business is the hang ing up of unmounted diamonds as trophies for amateurs. This is the nearest possible approach to money. ltVnnanf tliarrnnil ridTS UD tlierO gO in for medals at all," remarked Gnf- Being in Class "A", Terrill is not permitted under rules to race 00 miles from home. For the purposes of this trip he has secured a special permit and may enter for one or more events on Thauksglving Day at the adver tised meet. Harry Woolen is trying to get up a road race in the meantime as an appetizer. The Coast boys tell him that a splendid course can be laid out on Beretanla and School streets. They suggest twenty-live miles. Mr. Wooteu thinks five or ten miles will be about suitable to the local talent. Griffiths was a world's champion for about two weeks last year. He covered ten miles on the road In -G minutes and 44 seconds. This was in the extensively mentioned relay race from San Francisco to Oakland around iRIKFint, ONE OF TUS COAST S UEST WdEKLKKS, WHO IS II EKE OS A VISIT. the bay by way of San Jose, "was a task of 100 miles and was di vided among ten picked men. Terrill was alo oue of the number aud did credit able work. Griffith's name was her alded broadcast as a "phenom." He at once stepped into the ranks as a prominent rider and is most likely to stay there. He has been riding only four years and tried the track for the lirst lime only eighteen months ago. So far he has held his own at every distance. Though splendidly built he Is of slight form, but strong aud of line lung power. Mr. Terrill is riding in his third vear ami has been racing half that time. Any distauce suits him, but he has done his best at half a-mile.. The tendency of the programs in the States is for spurts. They plea-e the audi ences. People get tired of long eon tests. Terrill impresses one as being a powerful fellow. He looks like a vounggiaut. . A . These voung men have to date raced only on the Coast. They are training on and may be able to best Zeigler and Wells of California, and then go How do you train?" was a-ked of Te"Eat plenty of substantial food; work enough, but not too much; don makeyoui-elf weary. To race a man you should feel good all the time. None of the cracks ride themselves Jown. They do just enough work keep in trim." "Do either of you smoke? "No, sir;" said Griffiths. "None of the successful riders either smoke or drink. The great Zimmerman takes a cigar between his teeth, but never lights It. Smoking would cut the wind." The visitors are quite taken with the appearance and riding of Giles, the Hawaiian champion. They are quite TKKKILL, ONE OF THE BICYCLISTS WHO IS HONOLULU. SAN KKANCISCO AT PK E SENT IN anxious to see him on the track. The Honolulu mm are keen to see Grif fiths and Terrill come down to the tape. If there is no hitch the oppor tunity may be atlorded on the and in the road race. IT WAS VERY SUDDEN. Hut the Man at the Telephone Got the Au itvrer He Wanted. An event lias occurred in Michigan, nrar Dc troit, which appears to coniinn th; idea that courtship as well as most other things will hereafter bo greatly facilitated by recent inventions. It seems that there is a young lady residing in Detroit who for some time has been the recipient of the attentions of two young men ono a young professor at the Michigan stato university at Ann Ar bor and tho other a traveling salesman for a New York wholesalo hardware house, whoso route extends through Michigan and parts of Canada. Ono day recently tho New Yorker ar rived in Detroit late in tho afternoon, and of conrsi immediately started to Make tho rounds uf the retail hardware deahrs, with th lamlablo purpose o felling each a good stxk for the winter liefore the representative of any rival concern should put in an appearand-.'. He had hoped to visit tho olject of his affections in the evenings bnt business was brisk, and at 8 o'clock found him very busy trying to induce a prominent dealer to take six dozen axes, four dozen grindstones and a half carload of wood en iails. At this stage of tho proceed ings a younger brother of thy yomg lady dropped in to get a new jackknifc and accidentally mentioned that the Anil Arbor professor was up at tho house. It instantly occurred to tho progress ive hardware and cutlery drummer that the college mau came for no other purpose than to lay his heart at the feet of the young lady he himself adored. For a moment there was a struggle in hs heart, but he speedily got control of himself and decided that he could not possibly lcavo tho store, as tho dealer was jut on the point of deciding to t.iko the pails. But tho thought of giving up the lady, who had been for months con stantly in his mind, waking and sleep ing, was unbearable. Light suddenly dawne-d on him. Handing the merchant a circular explaining tho merits of his new double bladcd chopping knives, he requested the uso of tho dealer's tele phone for five minutes, stepped to it aud rang up the central oCicc. A moment later tho telephone bell at tho residence of tho young lady rang, sharp and decisive. The professor had leen therefor an hour talking pleasant ly of tho grand educational work they were doing in the department of fos silogy at Ann Arbor. When the bell rang, tho lady's father being absent l.o is a plrysician she excused herself and proceeded to tho adjoining room t" answer it. The professor heard her step to tho telephone and say "Yes, " makoa short pause and say "Yes" again. Tlun thTn was a 1 -nger pause, and he heart' Lirivply, "Why why really, this i. very sudden. " Then there was a tti'' longvr par.e, ami ho heard her say ' Yes, " very softly, and then "Goodby, " and th'-n sl?e hung up tho receiver and ci:::e into th; back room. Tho college man moved closer to tho lady and iv markd that it was a warm evening, and he thought it was going to rain r.i.' th:n r sumol his talk about the m-a work at the university. Fifteen i.. inure later th re was r. ring at the lrnt do: -bell. The lady responded to ir. aud a ('..strict messenger boy handed her a plain gold ring, whii-h hv slipped on h'r f:ng' r :.nd returned to llu; parlor.

Evens for putting it bluntly, but will yi.u l. my wife':" Iut we need go further with this. Two minutes later the professor went down the front steps and shok Ids list at the telephone wire and took the first train for Ann A r bor. Hardware. Almnt a Trajetlj-. He? hived her. Ho had a-ked her to marry him. Sho had remained silent. He persuaded and pleaded for an an swer. Sho rt fused to r ply. Then he tock his hat and started vay angrily. "One word, Ir. do Smoot, " she said in iragie to: us. "before you go." Ho was awed and stopped. ' "Well," he responded sulkily, "what is it? Sj eak quick, fori am going away forever.
