Smalley wheel, a home made machine,!
and the product of the Plymouth
Cycie Manufacturing Co.
It was a pleasure long tn be remem
bered, when in company with thousands
of people we entered the enormous
buildim; on the corner of Dearborn and
HUli streets. The lirst impression upon
entering this sTractur was the similar
ity both in design and decorations to
that of the Manufacturers building at
the World's Pair.
The first feature of the display that
struck us forcibly, was the almost
countless numbers of different makes of
wheels on exhibition; and yet we were
informed oer thirty would-be exhib- j
itors were unable to secure space in
this monster building with its large two
story annex.
Our lirst thought was to try to find
the locationof our home exhibit, but we
felt as though a difficult task was before
us. We had proceeded but a short
distance, when, t brought the maze of
bicycle. acc'Utienients and colored
bunting, we discovered a large electric
sign Ilashmg out the significant words
"Superb Smalley." We immediately
j made our way to the place and were
j met by Mr. M. W. iinons, who iniro
! duccd us to his large stall of assistants,
ami between the rush oi" admirers ask
j ing for information regarding that ideal
j wheel the "Pearl Queen," discovered a

j Plymouth exhibit were Messrs. W.

Marion Ib'ack and Will C. Dowdy.
These gentlemen were kept busy show
ing up the good points of the Smalley
wheel, which are numerous, and the
continual expressions of satisfaction
h?aid regarding the bicycles presented
there for inspection, left no doubt as to
the favorable impressions made. .Es
pecially was this more noticable regard
ing the w heel spoken of previously, he
"Pearl (ucen," and we learned tnat a
large number of orders were entered
for wheels of the same design.
The electric display, which had taken
days of patient labor to complete, was
remarkable and one of the linest of
the exhibitions The fac simile of the
name on the bar, in red and white
electric lights, was jne of the designs
while two large signs spoken of before
added to the Smalley wheel a luster
that will not soon be dimmed by its
host of competitors. In the way of
souvenirs, "The Smalley" button seem
ed to predominate, while beautifully
illustrated catalogues and alluminum
finished metal added their silent un
impeachable evidence of the excellent
satisfaction given by the "Smalley."
On Friday evening the Smalley
Cycling Club, composed of loO memoirs
w ho by the way are members of the
Associated Cycling Club, visited the
representatives of the fSmalley exhibit
and bad a rousing time, attracting a
iTi-o.it. crowd of admirers. It would be
impossible to give the many little inci
dents that occurred which would be ot
interest to our readers. Hut in speak
ing of this, one of Plymouth's greatest
manufacturing enterprises, enough
cannot be said in way of praise.
It is expected to take the same exhibit
to New York City to be placed on ex
hibition there at the Cycling show which
will in a short time be inaugurated.
Mr. and Mrs. M. W.Simons will attend
this event. It is also expect that Messrs

The result of his labors was the dis

simple in its bases, which he has named
"Asepsin." It is this which he claims a
veritable elixir of life.
It is the test of this remedy which is
now being made. Two cases of pure
consumption are under the treatment,
both exactly the same, and both well

No doubt there are many young ladies j
and name older ones in Plymouth and
elsewhere who are perfectly reconciled
to the practice of hugging and who in
fact would prefer being hugged to not
being hugged. Put down m Terre
Haute it is different. Kven the remote
prospect of being hugged has terrorized
the store and factory girls of that city
and thrown them into a state bordering
on panic. When they are compelled to
be on the streets in the evening they are
in mortal fear of being hugged and so
great is this fear that the matter is
discussed only when the girls are to
getfcer in numbers and then with proper
reservations and becoming modesty.
All this is because Terre Haute has a
hugger, a mysterious somebody w'o
disregaids the conventionalities of
every day life and revtls in the stolen
sweets of contraband hugs. The matter
has been taken into court. The suspect
has not so far been convicted. No re

large amount of "green goods"' to dope
their fellow mortals with. The great
trouble is, there is always some one in
every neighborhood who is self conceited

The inducements offered are of the most
roseate character and often cause the
guileless suckers to pack up their little
grips, stow a good-sized roll into their
inside pocket and speed away to what
they imagin is a sure read to sudden
wealth. They know better when they
return. The imagination is knocked
higher than a kite and as they lie awake
