STEALING BICYCLES, Smooth Schemes by Which Dealew Are Victimized. Curious Storlc* of Thefts by He jpectabic Appearing Persona? Women Are Enjjngc? la tbe Thierlns. Whether bicycling- in the long run is cheaper than riding in street cars, it is certain that some persons of unscrupu? lous tendencies' make money by :heir cycling adventures. They are those who make a practice of stealing bicy? cles and selling them for what they can pet. Four or five years ago, when the j/rice oi the cheapest wheels almost equaled that of the best in the market to-day, the business of bicycle stealing was really in its infancy. Men who had engaged in various lines of crookedness soon discovered that the demand for wheels at a low price furnished excep? tional inducements for them to make bicysle stealing a regular occupation, and the tactics they employed in order to get possession of machines were numerous and often extremely clever. During the last two years wheel stealing has been carried on to a grea...

MARKET REPORTS D* NEW YORK STOCK MARKET. '" NEW YORK, Sept. 11.?Forced liqui? dation Avas in evidence today on the stock exchange in consequence of the efforts of the banks to reduce their de? posit liabilities by the reduction of loans. The continued demand from in? terior sources for money and payments for taxes into the sub treasury today confirmed expectations. The market went down under successive Hoods of offers. At various limes during the day the pressure of selling seemed to i have exhausted itself. The rally in prices at such times was feeble and the trading became dull, the demand for stocks being at a minimum. Standard stocks in the market suffered with the industrials to an equal degree. This feature was doubtless due in some part to the recent disinclination on the part of money lenders to accept the indus? trials as collateral for loans. It was, ?therefore, the standard stocks which ?wore thrown upon the market by the calling ef loans. Aside from a few stocks which ha...
