Xow I had long suspected that Ted wanted a bicycle., aud hints lio eaiuisiNy dropped, stud above all. loug mysteri ous confabs with the bachelor, strength ened my suspicions.

Cycling Hints. The Care of the Machine. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 3 February 1899

Cycling Hints. The Care of the Machine. By G. LAOY HILMISII (Joint Author of 'Cycling.' in the ltadwiiiton Li brary.) The price of a first-elass cycle is stead ily rising, for reasons which need not be dilated upon at length ; in any ease, the purchase of a good mount Js not a cheap operation, to put it mildly, aud some re marks as to the care of the cycle when acquired will uot be out of place. The eare necessary may be divided into tn-o sections— the care when in use, aud Chat necessary when the machine is laid by. AV'hen in lisa it ta lito-hl*. 4,in.in;^..i.in* *A permit any part of the cycle to remain loose, apart altogether from the danger of accident necessarily involved. Thus, should the pedal come loose in the crank end, or the pedal nut come loose, where these are used, it is most unwise to neg lect, it wlillsl riding even a short dis tance, and for this reason— that ttieiv is a big leverage on the pedal end, aud the threads of the screw, which hold firmly when the nut is s...

Anchor Fishers. [Newspaper Article] — Narromine News and Trangie Advocate — 3 February 1899

Anchor Fishers. One of the qyeer occupations of man kind is that of dragging for' lost an chors. It is carried on in bays and rivers, and even in the open sea along the coast. A recent writer says that several sloops and schooners are en gaged almost exclusively In this pur suit. The hunters are as familiar with tbe ground wnere ancnors are io De round as fishermen are with the favourite haunts of the living inhabitants of the Bea. The manner of flaning for lost anchors is most simple. A chain Is let down in a loop long enough, to drag along the bottom, and the -vessel goes on her way with all hands on board alert for a bite, and a bite usually ends In a catch. The recovered anchors are usually sold again at a price of about twopence a pound, which Ib a haif^pe^ny under the market price tor new anchors. A big anchor will weigh 60001b., so that the flrfhermen make £50 out ot It. More often the anchor fished up weighs from 10001b. to 20001b., and there is a pretty profit in the busine...

A Dodge of Bicycle Thieves. The bicycle thief is inventive this year. A young- man was practising circles in front of his house, when two fellows stopped on the pavement to admire him. One of them asked how much the wheel weighed, and the young man said it weighed 221b. The smaller of the two said that was too Jigbt, and that he believed in wheels *v^i6*'JiG 41 last oviu. ajdu ne THcn tloned that he once came out ahead in a ten-mile race and rode a wheel weigh ing- 381b. At this tlie larger of ' the strangers laughed derisively, and said, ' What do you know about wheels V' ' Why, I've ridden more wheels than you ever saw;' replied the other. ' I don't believe you can ride at all.' - ' I'll bet you a sovereign I can. Let me show htm on you- v-heel. I won't hurt It.' He could ride all right. He wabbled slowly on the wheel for a short distance, and then he swished around the corner, and was away like the wind.

Finally, the (juccn, deeming it a shime that such gifted women should be separated by a mean, unworthy jealousy, reqiested both to appear at a Court concert. Of course they both came. The Queen warnly welcomed them together for the tirst time. She gave the signal for the concert to begin, Jenny Liof1 was the younger, and it was arranged that she shoull sing tirst.
