That is becauM a new ut bus been
found for theui in introducing the
game of curling. LTules tbe straws iu
the wind tell a very false tale, this sec
ond game imported from Scotland ii
sure to have, from now on, almost aj
pronounced a rogue as golf.
Its chief recommendations nro that,
like golf, it is an old and houom ,le pas
time. It is not intricate or costly, and it
is making a special appeal to womcuou
the other aide. Women in Scotland
don't rery often indulge in curling ou
tbe frosen loebs and rirers, but iu Lou
don it is being rapidly adapted to the
ievrinki by sport loving women of rauk,

"If you can bowl well and like t- do
it," said a girl who was talking about
the new game and its charms, "you are
bound to make a capital curler. Beside,
It's a wonderfully healthy, exciting sort
of sport, and as to the propriety of it,
just ask and you'll find oot that iu Scot
land it is considered a special relaxation
for tbe oiergy.
"Up in Canada the girls go in for
curling with a great deal of vigor.
There is a woman's curling club being
started in Boston, another iu Baltimore,
and if the winter brings any mod ice
this year there will be ionic bcnxpicla

Xt Harvar Crew De to HcaUf.
JZarvard'a rowing magnates say there
is ire chance of a crimson crew going to
England next year. A report from a
London paper said that America would:
again be represented at Henley and that
the oarsmen would be from Harvard.
Bat the coaches say there is nothing in
Ibis rumor and that it probably origi
nated from the fact that an English
coach will have charge of the crimson
crew. Harvard ia under obligation to
raw Cornell next season. It is said she
will never send a crew abroad till Cor
nell and Yale have been beaten. The
Cambridge oarsmen rery rightly believe
that honors could not be gained at Hen
ley when there are unbeaten crews in
this country. Aquatics at both Yale and
Harvard will doubtless undergo marked
ehuigee next year, when English meth
ods will be used at both universities.
Every lover of the sport hopes that the
achoolboy rows between these two great
institutions will be settled forever and
that they meet on the field and ou tbe
water for the sport itself. New York

are trifling aud apparently insignificant,
but, all the siiiue, they probably require

skill aj if they were large and iu.por

to build these 9(Jl parts into a bicycle.
Despite all that is said ou the subject,
a bicycle is nor comparable, as an in

FoldluK Iiicycle For Army Work.
A new form of the folding bicycle liu
been designed by an army otlicer with
view of makiiig tbe military cyclist v.
combatant. The machine is tf ordinary
low pneumatic type, with a chain gear,
but it folds ou itself, eo ns to bring both
wheels together. Mounted on such a
wheel, the soldier can approach the ene
my, dismount and within a minute
have the machine ou his back, with Lis
arms free to shoot, to scale or any other
duty. It weighs about B0 pounds. Iu
view of the high opinion of the possi
bilities of the bicycle in war which has
been expressed by tbe leading military
authorities in this country, together
witli the active stepe that have been
takeu toward tbe formation of military
wheel corps, tbe new bicycle specially
commends itself to army experts, a
well as to cyclists in general. It has
been tried 111 tiie French army and is
said to bare astonished th 3 commnuders
with its potential value in war for sur
prising the enemy by unexpected attacks.
atra. Parkkunt oa Cycling-.
Mrs Parkhurst, wife of the noted
New York chrgymau and reformer,
says: "Of course I do not believe thai
bicycling is immoral. I am a wheel
woman in; elf and believe that the
wheel is beneficial from every point of
riew. The bicycle is a very active agent
in the advance of morality. A K'r' who
rides the wheel is lifted out of herself
and her surroundings. She is made to
brentbe purer uir, see fresher and more
beautiful scenes nud get an amount ol
exercise she would not otherwise get.
All this is highly beneficial. I think we
can trust to the majority of the girls to
conre out all right. Only those with nat
urally immoral tendencies will become
immoral while usiDg the wheel."

"Why, my dear," he said, sitting
down beside her and putting his aim
around her, "what has happened?"
"Oh, I shall never get over it nev

"Never get over what?" he asked.
"Has uny one dared to insult you or say
anything unkind to you?"
"No-o," she returned through her
teais, "it isn't that. I did it myself,
"Oh, never mind!" he said soothing

"Oh, dear, uo!" she answered. "But,

"Well, what happened then?"
"Ncthiug. She was punctiliously po

from business of any kind was divided
among the stockholders on the most hon

prosper in all its branches that, as Mr.
Smythu tells us, one of the concerns.
Zion's Co-operative Mercantile institu
tion, has paid for 27 yeais annual
dividend of 9 1-3 percent. No commu

mining districts, has become rich sc
quickly as these Mormons did.
The country mail carrier on horseback
with saddlebags was a familiar feature
of half a century ago. Then came the
country mail carrier in his sulky. It
was left for the rurali.sts of the end of
the nineteenth century to become famil
iar with the appearance of the mail car
rier bicyclist. Many of the star route
postoffie'es are now served by the bicycle
mail carrier. He makes better time than
a horse can d; over reads and ;;r times
when he can travel at all. Also it can
not be denied that ho has a good deal
more fun than ihe old time mail man
did. His bicycle is no expense, and in
that respect it has the advantage over
tftfe horse. But the drawback is that in
rainy and muddy and snowy weather
the bicycle cannot go at all. Moreover,
some parts of the country are yet so
heathenish as to have 110 roads fit for
cycle travel. That difficulty iu time w ill
be overcome. There is no promoter of
good roads like the bicycle.
It is unfortunate that tbe big Ferris
wheel property at Chicago has bad the
hard luck to pass into the hands of a re
ceiver. The Ferris wheel pr. ba'.ly give
as much healthful and innocent pleasure
to the minute to nun, women and chil
dren as any invention ever made. There
is an infinite joy, a serene happiness iu
riding slowly and majestically through
the air above all the smoke, rinsT, clam
or and fretting at the earth's .surface,
above the tops of live and six i-tory
buildings, aud taking in long breaths
of the air as the Almighty ruado it. We
may hope that the enterprise will re
cover from its temporary embarrassment
and that the great wh-el will still roll
ou serene and prosperous.
The Poles, Russians and Italians are
the most ignorant of tha immigrants
who come here. For the year ending
June SO, 343,267 immigrants landed ia
America, aud of these 28 per cent were
unable to-read and write. It is an ap
palling record of ignorance. The Italians
are among the mot illiterate. They are
also the most willing to learn of any.
In the public schools and those estab
lished by private benevolence the chub
by, beady eyed Italian children are on
the alert to catch every point presented
by their teachers. The Italian is ou the
whole as civilizable as any among the
strange medley of races we have to re
ceive and assimilate in this country.
In spite of tbe war in Cuba, sugar,
politically and otherwise, will be plen
tiful iu this country next year. The
World's product will be larger than that
t)f last year. It will amount altogether
!o8,76o,000 tons. The beet .sugar crop
of Germany and other European coun
tries is something immense. It will
amount to 1,960,000 tens, more than
half the world's total crop.
A tourist agency has added to its in
ducements to travelers bicycle trips.
Wherever, iu lands foreign or domestic,
its patrons desire to visit points of note
by bicycle instead of by carriage their
wish will be gratified. Think of scorch-

lions used to eat up Chi i.-f ians m the

HVO IN A SINK HOLE.
a. KENTUCKY PRINTER NARRATES A
While Following; the Call of His Faithful
ling lie Met With a MiRhap In Irk
Hole Willi a I ier e WiUl Meant The
l'cape and Recognition.
Pretty much everybody in the crowd
bad told a story of the gun or dog or
tishpole except a printer who looked
about as much like a hunter or fisher
man as he did like an angel.
"It's your turn now, Muggins, ' said
"I never hunted anything but hoard
ing houses over in Brooklyn," lie said,
with .". wan and dodging kind of air, as
if people threw ihings at him whenever
he tried to tell a story
"But before you came here in what
we want to know about," put in sev
eral, "and you've either got to tell a
story or pay fcr the drinks every time
anybody else tells one."
He moved about uneasily and pushed
his chair back from the table, drawing
it closf up again immediately and final
ly i psring his hands clasped on the board
in front of him.
"Well, gents," he said with the wan
and dodging look still in his eye, "let
me think a minute. Before I came here
I lived iu Chicago, where I was hunted
instead of hunting. Before that I was
in w Orleans, where I only hunted a
job. Before that I was in St. Paul,
where; I was hunting a warm place all
the time. Before that I lived in Boston,
where it, was too frigid to hunt, mid be
fore that, quite a long time before that,
I lived in old Kentucky, ai:d, gents, 1
did hunt there. Nothing but a coon,
ruebbe, or a fox or a possum or as little
as a squirrel or only a dove in the dusty
road, but it was finer than anything ou
"I was only a boy, and perhaps that
had something to do with if, but I didn't
know any different then, like I do now,
and it was just the tin est on e:uth and
no mistake." And his wan face lighted
up as if J.c veie looking through the
open gutt s t f pLii iiuite. "I recollect 1
had a deg that was eonud rable of a
hunting (., but l.c was an unrcstlrss
kind f ; : f, ulid when he treed any
thing ho would do a lot of barking at
first, but if somebody didn't con;o
mighty quick he would give it up and
go moseying along after the next thing
in sight. One night I was out with him
after coons, and about ft o'clock I heard
him bark like he was over in a clump
of woods about a half mile away. 1
knew 1 was going to have to get to him
pretty quick if 1 found him there at all,
aud I fctarud across a field toward the
woods aa fast an I could go. It was a
stubblei held with sink holes like you
find all over Kentucky in the limestone
parts, and the place was dark, though
the mccn was jmt bcginnii g to show
above the woods. I whs thinking more
about what the dog had than anything
else, aud ns I went banging through the
field, all at nice I seemed to drop off of
the earth and fall into a cellar, and iheu
I knew I had tumbled into a sink hole.
They aie never very deep or dangerous,
and I wasn't afraid if being fatally
hurt, tut it took tho Fund out of me
right quick, and I went down through
tho weeda and stuff, not know ing just
what had happened. Of course I hadu'i
much time to think, ami when 1 hit
bottom 1 had still less, for instead ( 1
lighting on tho ground r stones cr
thicket, I lit 011 something alive. It was
a wild animal cf some kind. 1 didn't
know what, and I was grand till my
hair Legau to fct 1 funny on my head.
"When I went down. I vvi i.t hard,
and I kind of knock d the wind .i t oi
tbe varmint ;.t firet, but :n a .-cioi-d i:
began to yowl and snap ami Fjiarl and tr
twist under me and try to ; t (ut aim
to raise the dirkcus generally. In the
meant imo I was yelling and sqr.uwkiug
find trying to scare the blamed thinji,
becHiiso I thought it was a wildcat, a'nl
I knew a boy of my t-izo didn't have
any show with a wildcat if the varmint
ever took a notion to light, and 1 knew
pretty well that n wildcat was about as
sure to take a l-oiion to fight us any
thing on earth. I ricn't know exactly
what I did iu that Lr.le or how I did it,
but I remember it seeim-d about a month
of Sundays that I was all uiuseed up in
there with some kind of a wild animal,
and finally tho thing got from under me
jmd, scooted as fast as it could for the
top of the Fink hole. I followed after it
as quick as I could, for I became braver
when I saw it run, and when I got up
on tho level the moon had come out,
aud I could pee the varmint fairly skin
ning it out for tho tall timber. I yelled
at it, w ith all my might, though I didn't
run after it very fast, and begau to call
my dog. Ou the second call tbe varmint
stopped, aud I begau to get ready to skin
out myself, when I get a l-tter look,
and, by tbe great born spnu, gents, it
was my dog. I called him then, and be
came back to mc. and I could I4ee for
myself that he had holed something
down there in the sink, r.nd his harking
had been smothered and sounded away
off to me, and of course when 1 dropped
in ou him unexpectedly like that he
didn't know anything about it, and nei
ther did I, mnl there v.-e was. Iu any
eveut, gentlemen, '" concluded the for
mer Corncntekt r,."that nog t tnic trot
ting back to me, and when we met face
to face in the moonlight he scrter look
ed at me, mid I sorter looked at Lim,
and I don't know wl.i'h one (f us felt
mof-t like apologizing. I do know,
though, we both knocked off for that oc
casion, and on tho way heme we took
turn about m aking along behind eacl
oilier, me and tho dog." New York
