Shoemaker, a young arti san engaged at the W. T. Adams Ma chine Shop, has invented a bicycle support which holds the wheel in up right position when it is not in use, obviating the necessity of leaning it against something or laying it flat upon the ground. The contrivance is a simple one, and consists of two steel rods attached at one end to a collar, clasped by a earn lever, which slides up and down the tubing running from the seat to the crank bearings, where there is a plate with two holes through which the two rods pass. When the rider dismounts the collar is loosened and is glided down the tube, the rods pass through the plate to the ground and spreading on either side, the collar clamp is again fastened and the wheel is given a firm support. Ready to remount, the claffip is again loosened and the collar and rods are slided up to their first position, where they are completely out of the way. A patent has been applied for, a company or ganized and a contract is being nego tiated with the Home Novelty Co., of St. Louis, for the first supply, and it is expected to get the attachment on the market in about three weeks.
