Fourteen Men Start In Race, bat
Drop Out One by One—
Spencer Made Game
KANSAS CITY. Mo.. April 5.— H. C.
Hirschy, with a handicap of twenty-nine
yards, today won the great American
handicap, and thus became the champion
wing- shot of America. .
. The last man to stand up with htm on
the shoot-off out of the fourteen men
who had clean scores yesterday was C.
C. Spencer, of St. Louis, also a twenty
nine-yard man, who finally failed to kill
Jus fifty-third bird, a towering out-goer.
Spencer will receive second money, R.
O. Heikes, of Dayton, Ohio, tiiird; J. D.
Pollard, Cnicago, fourth, and J. L.. Owen,
of Gushing, Okla., ffth.
The race, which was for twenty-five
birds, proved to be one of the most sen
sational in the annals of shooting tourna
ments. The shoot-off today began with
bright and clear weather, but wun a hard
wind blowing.
. In the second round two men dropped,
a third missed out in the third, three
lost in the Courtu, two more in the sev
enth, one in the eleventh and another
in the fourteenth. Fred Gilbert, of Spirit
■ Lake, lowa, was one of the fir.-'. tO» to j
quit, and Heikes, after making many .yon- j
sational shots, lost his thirty-lirst. j
This left Spenoep and Hirschy alone In
the race.
They killed their birds v.ita ease and'
regularity and soon passed ';■• record j
mark for straight kills of thiityrfeur, ECt I
by Bates in l£oo. Hirschy's snooting was
stead! than Spencer's on the last rotinas,
and many picked him for the winner alt
j er the fortieth bird had been killed.
Both men were straight up to the fifty
second bird. The fifty-third was a tow
ering out-goer. Spencer shot first, and al
though he ...t it, the bird fell dead out
of bounds. Hirschy's iifty-third was an
i ordinary right quarterer. lie killed it
| with his first barrel, but used the second
; to make sure.
Hirschy had not only won the great
j American handicap, but he had placed to
i his record a score of seventy-eight
' straight birds for this event, having
j grassed every one since^the tournament |
began on Monday morning. i
When Hirschy killed his last bird his ■
admirers swarmed around him and bore j
him from the field on their shoulders.

About 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon a
runaway that bid fair to end seriously
occurred on Payne avenue, and for a
few minutes there was a great deal of
excitement along the street. The run.
away horse belonged to a peddler named
Barnett and was eating its feed at Whit
a!l street and Payne avenue. Several
small boys were playing ball in the near
vicinity and by accident the h^rSe w.is
struck by the wphere. He became fright
ened and with a bound started 'I >wn the
avenue at such a pace that people along
the thoroughfare rushed for places of
safety. The frightened animal dashed
down Payne avenue to Decatur, to Brad
ley Street, and was finally caught under
th*> Sixth street bridge on the railroad
At Seventh and Bradley streets the
wind was blowing so hard that the dust
made it almost impossible to see any
distance -and several people had narrow
escapes as the hor»e sped across Seventh
street at this point. Ine wagon was

The cycle whiri seen at a local theater

the whe.img enthusiasst watching their
work on the ordinary indoor track, hut
the cycle whirl is a different thing.
This new tiling in the race world, in

The cycle whirl forms an inverted
truncated cone of slants with diairn tera
across th>- top and bottom of -■>'■> and !!'•

are pet at an angle of !."i degrees with the
and are eight feet in length.
The curtain rising discov< rs to the
tatcrs several bicyclists and their ma
chines within what appears to lie a fence
of slanting pickets. A bell taps and one
of the riders rushes ins wheel along the
bottom nf the inverted cone. Two loops
of the track and he Is up riding at
break-neck speed along the middle of
the track.
Faster and faster he rides, and higher
I and higher he climbs, and all the time
' his body leans more and more toward
; the inside, final!.', reaching a position
; where the rider and wheel seem nearly
horizontal a? he goes spinning along over
the clattering slats.
The'thing looks dangerous enough with
one rider on this little track, but the
American sport lovers want real excite

Benjamin C. Twiddle! of Bay ( ity i
Mich., is one wheelman refusing to itel •
tired and stiff after his early spring ridts
The wheelmen who have hurried their
machines down from the attic stord room
only to experience nuts-ile cramps after
a short ride about the smooth pavement
know that they must go through so much
pain before they are able to [••■port in '
condition for the seasons riding, but
Trudelle has escaped all the early spring '
sufferings of the bicycle rider. "
Trudelle is not bothered by stiff Joints,
for when the snow left ill ground be
was in shape and ready to get out for a
century run. Trudelle was in shape for
he has been riding all through the long
winter months.
Last fall Trudelle hated to separate I
himself from his bicycle for the winter j
months and" he determined to ride right
or. all through the go d and bad days
of winter. He had his bicycle frame
and before he stopped planning he had
invented a real winter machine.
Runners, of course, took the place of
the bicycle wheels and the Scientific
American fully describes the invention
as follows:.
The driving-gear of this curious ma
chine consists of a spur-gear fixed to th*-.
crank-shaft of the bicycle, and a pinion
meshing with the spur-sear, the shaft
of which is rotatably mounted fTr*"a bear
ing carried by the lower end of a brack
et secured to the bicycle frame. The
opposite end of this shaft carries a gear
meshing with a pinion rigidly attached
to a spiked driving wheel. Evidently,
by rotating the main spur gear -through
the medium of the pedals, the spiked
wheel is turned iorwardly.
In order to adjust the height of this
driving wheel and to enable it to yield
when overriding obstructions, the in
ventor resorts to a peculiar device. A
vertically movable arm is pivoted to the
lower end of the bracket carrying the
bearing previously referred to. An up
wardly extending adjusting rod is fixed
at its lower end to this vertically mov
able arm and La secured at its upper
end to the bicycle frame. A collar se
cured to the lower part of the rod op
poses the thrust of a spring, which re
sists the upward thrust, thus permitting
the driving wheel to override obstruc
A bicycle catamaran is the new one
introduced by an American Inventor.
This man has hit upon tire idea of using
his bicycle in getting his boat through
the water at a high rate of speed. Be
tween the two connected boats he has
rigged on suitable supports the bicycle
with the rear wheel engaging two fric
j tion,rollers. The shaft of one of ihese
\ rollers carries a pinion meshing with a
gear carried on a second shaft. A
sprocket wheel on the gear shaft is con
j nected by means of a chain with a
| sprocket on the paddle wheel. The in
j vention is fully described in the March
number of the Scientific American. By
propelling the bicycle in the" usual way
the rear wheel acting through, the me
dium of the friction rollers and the
transmission gearing described will turn
'the paddle wheel and;drive the catama
ran forward.
