After dinner the visitors were entertained until leaving time. Mr. Leary Btated that this was the first time in a number of years that he had had the pleasure of visiting Astoria, and that he noticed many Improvements He was delighted with what he saw of the work at the Jetty and felt that As toria's harbor was destined to be one of the best In the world.

Mr. Leary remarked that the action of As toria In raising a subsidy for a railroad was on similar lines and he hoped to see the effort result as successfully as Seattle's deal. The party returned to Portland at 7 o'clock on the Gatzert. A SPEEDY LUNATIC. Sheriff IHare's Exciting Chase After an Insane Man at Knappa. Sheriff Hare, who returned from Knap pa yesterday afternoon, relates an excit ing experience with an Insane man who has been frightening the people in that vicinity for a number of days past. After a search of a couple of hours the crazy man was pointed out to the sher iff, but when he attempted to secure his prisoner, the latter fled at top speed, The sheriff gave chose and after run ning about a quarter of a mile divested himself of his coat and hat In order to increase his speed. The Insane man. con cluded that he also had too much clothing o: to run well, and discarded an over coat. The chose was continued for over a mile and the prisoner would have been secured had not the approaching dark ness given him an opportunity to hide in the brush. Sheriff Hare was reluctantly compelled to abandon the pursuit. Upon returning he picked up the overcoat, In the overcoat, in the pockets of which he found ai quantity, of writing paper and newspaper clippings on the subject of checkers. On the writing paper were a number of checker problems which had evidently been the cause of dethroning the owner's reason. The residents of Knappa state that the Insane man, who Is a Southerner, and about six feet four Inches hi height, has been in the habit of visiting their houses and demanding food when the male residents are ab sent, but would invariably run when any of the latter approached.

The Astoria Abstract, Title and Trust Company. Dr. Price's Cream Biking Powder World's Fair Htcfcjt Awari HEALTH ON THE WHEEL. An Eminent French Doctor Recommends the -"Bike." The woman who bicycles is Just now the cause of a great deal of talk, chiefly, It Is to be feared, In spite of the "seriousness" that Is a characteristic of the day, distinctly frivolous In its ten-, deney, and very much based upon "pet ticoats." Can it be that there is some thing Inherently ridiculous in the idea of much physical exercise for women? or is It merely that she Is invading a par ticularly masculine form of amusement. True, Punch has looked with a kindly eye on the cOBtume, and bis damsel ar rayed in a bicycling suit was a very be witching person, Indeed, but perhaps that was simply because she only meant to wear it In working her sewing machine. Anyway, when "La Femme tt la Bt cyclette" Is seen on the title page of the Nouvelle Revue for May 1 the reader feels at once she can trust to the lively Gaul for a Jocular treatment of the subject. And here she will be disappointed. No one could be more thor oughly in earnest than Dr. Just Cham plonlere, de l'Academle de Medicine, in his most grave and weighty and scientific account of his latest discovery, that bicycling Is the cure for every 111 that female flesh is heir to. ' No woman's suffragist could explain more carefully that what makes for tlu better development of women is for th good of the race; perhaps no champion of the "cause" could have displayed such patience and moderation- in demonstrat ing that the speediest way for her to gain complete equality, muscular. Intel lectual and moral, with man (O, ye New Woman!) Is by constant exercise on the bicycle. But so dispassionate is the French man of science that it cannot be denied he uses arguments In his plead ing for the concession of the bicycletts to women that will hardly be palatable to either the "new" or the "eternal" type of the feminine. To begin with, In explaining why he deems it necessary to devote twenty-four pages of the Nouvelle Revue to what, according to many, la only a freak of the most temporary nature, he tells us that the blcyclette for women has really a vogue, and one that will endure, which last assertion he supports by stating that ladies will of course be ardent In adopting a "sport" they can share with their male friends, and one that offers them the supreme interest of a costume yet to be devised which shall be en tirely suitable, while It must be a moSl flcatlon of the male attire so dear to the hearts of women. After this somewhat French opinion of the sort of dressmak erly attraction bicycling has, and will continue to have for women, he gives a beautifully "new" reason for encouraging them by every bait possible to adopt it. Always keeping In view the benefit to the race In general by perfecting fke fe male form and Intellect, we are told that It Is time we should begin to correct an error our civilization has long been re sponsible for in the treatment of women, who have been spoilt by an over Indulg ence most detrimental to their true well being. Setting aside the working classes, the women of the day suffer from In sufficient exercise and a too stimulating diet. As soon as' a girl is grown up she is kept from every form of violent exer. else, and her life Is generally one of physical repose. The result is she has ess vitality than her toiling sisters of the workng class, whose food Is of the plainest. He makes an exception in favor of English and American girls and the girls of Northern Europe, but regrets that even they often give up outdoor exercist by the time they are 30. His Idea is that horse exercise, either as women now ride or astride, is, on the whole, not very suitable for women, and he really finds a great deal to prove that the Ideal for them Is bicycling. With a frankness that might be supposed to be British rather than French, he remarks that few women walk really well, and that often, even If they manage In doing bo to satisfactor ily balance the body, the effect is spoilt on the highways by a lamentable indecis ion at the crossings. Now the bicycle, while it develops the muscles of the body, often traverses thoroughfares where where distances must be nicely calculated, and the rider Is thus traine In eye and hand, and becomes a better Judge of possibilities (n walking. Dr. Championlere allows that at the pres.nt stage of things the feld for comparisons Is limited; but he h'.s taken every oppor tunity for observation, and has found in all cases that the development of musck is here accompanied by very marked im provement In respiration. And it Is com ortlng to have a critical Frenchman's assurance that beauty of form, rather than being forfeited by it, Is enhanced and that that much-dreaded consequence, a round back, Is an Impossibility. Short ness of breath and a tendency U obesity he considers the two worst re sults of the modern woman's mode ol life, and here the bicycle Is Invaluable. He even cites an Instance of a lady of unusual feebleness of breathing and gen eral health who, after three years' regu lar exercise on it, gained a vigor be yond that of her strongest contemporar ies. One curious thing he notes is that it is not a practice that has been enthu siastically adopted by young girls, its devotees, on the contrary, being mostly quite formed women, generally verging on 30, and often much older. All tha same, he thinks that the earlier it is begun the better, and advocates it as the "sport de famine" par excellence, Last, but not least, it should interest every male who has the good of his womenklnd and his own comfort at heart to hear that the virtues In which the feminine part of the population are most deficient ac best be acquired while braving the elements and taking a whole some share of the ups and downs of life on a bicycle. . The French doctor has noticed that wome.n seldom read maps well, are not good at making out routes, and even lack power to grasp the general features of a landscape; also that they are sadlyi wanting in discipline, some kinds of courage and patience. How bicycling will supply all thes qualities It Is possible to Imagine for oneself; or, If not we must refer the reader to Dr. Just Champlonnierre, who clearly demon strates that training for the Intellect and morals can be got from the bicycle Just as much as for the muscles or the nervous system.
