to make the ibarj;? of riding faster
than the corporation limit, which is
ten miles per hour, bat we showed
our cyclometer and t x plained that
we were rery confident we were not
making any such speed. No doubt
our innocent and guileless appear
ante had much influence, for, after a
fatherly admonition, they turned as
loose, sadder but wiser men.
Through a delightfully pleaiant,
rolling country, with broad fields of
ripening grain upon either side,
wheeling in Cheshire, realizes all our
dreams of English roads. Some
twenty miles brought us into Whits
church, where we turned to the east
and in the erening, by the light ot
our "bike limps, si found our
c clomsters had rfgietered eixty-flee
mile for the day's run.
After a good night's sltep, ws were
on early next day. The roads across
Staffordshire are not equal to those
ot Cheshire, but still good. A thirty
mile run brought us to Litrbflsls.

is in keeping, and the red stone ot

at the door of the house where Dr.
Samcel Johnson was born. It Is a
plain, old, solid structure standing
upon the corner with maseire itone
pillars supporting a porch roof.
Some twenty miUs brought us to
Nuneaton, the liilby ot George Eliot,
and a little fart hi-r on we caught a
glimpee of her birthplace and home;
then the three tall spires of Coun
try eeen for milee away, told us that
we were near our stopping place for
the night.

The old school building Is but
slightly changed; here are tbe Identi
cal little dsns In which tbe boys hare
crammeel Latin and Grsek tor that
many years. Thsy are six fsst square,
sontalnlng a deck, a chair and ths
regulation book rack. Tbe study ot

Urge. As ws roamed through these
rooms and halls, where every door
and beam shows tbe mark and

their foundation and gone out to

at the fountain head ot thoie great

grouped about tbe iplendid chapel in

We ran across tha nams ofG. E.
Hughes on the old dining room
table whieh is still preserved in one
otthe old halls. We dived into tbe
kitthen and saw ths hole where the
sugar lumps were given out. Dear
old soot. It Is no wonder to us now
that tbe boys love it, and that they
fight to preserve its old, time-worn
customs; we loosed to be boys agaio
and take our place with tbe others
at the term opening in the fall.
St. liicbael is tbe ooe thing in
tbe country which we shall nererfor-

piece rich in design; for more than a
hundred feet up there are frequent
niches with life-like statues, while tbe
beautiful earrings and adornments'
reach to ths very top.

From Stratford to Oxford there is
some billy riding, that is, hilly for
England, but at home it would not
be considered at all bad. Oxford
seemed to us too complicated, too
finished, too perlect for comprehen
sion in less than years. Other places
may boast a single building or two
hoary with age, beauteous lu archi
tecture, rich in tbe association of
genius, but Oxford ie a city ot euch
building. Hawthorne said it was a
despair to lee such a placs and ever
leave it. We despaired ot hail see
ing or at all comprehending tbe
place. We wandered over tbe soft,
grassy quadrangles, gaxed with awe
at the structures where much of Eng
land's greatness has been ecbooled,
glanced into the museum and libra
ries, and came away daxed by the
multiplicity of great historical and
literary names, and by tbeextraord
inary splendor of richness ot carv
ings, and towers and oriels and gate
ways. A little adventure may be worth
noting. A fair park named Christ

lege of that name and tberiver where
the boating is done. This meadow
contains a doubts row oi ths most
gigantic elm trees, with a walk be

It has also One walks beside the lets,

the rirer or a high iron fence, or a
wall. The place Is open to tbe
public during certain hour, but is
closed early. One of us was strolling
about this park one night about

Rer. Irl K Hicks, editor of "Word
and Works" and general gueeser at
tbe antics of weather in America,
has the following to say in tbe Octo
ber number of his valuable paper:
"If we bad a daughter who insist
ed on riding a bicycle to church and
marching up tlie aisle In red bloom
ers to take ber place at tbe organ
to lead tbe church music, she would
have to decide mighty quick wheth
er berbome, orberbicycleand bloom
ers would be abandoned. Whether
tbe congregation all had grace
enough not to split upon tbe ques
tion, or whether they were all God
lees worldlings enough to applaud
and approve of her shameless imper
tinence, would have nothing to do
with our determination; we should
act purely on the merits of tbe cae
as we see it. Either she would not
be worthy to be my daughter, or 1
would not be her father. We couldn't
live in the same bouse and family.
Tbe pulpit hireling who could con
nive or tamely submit under such
circumstances, should not be tbe
pastor of my family."
