It la asserted that bicycle manufac
turers, In their eagerness to make as
much profit as they did before the re
duction In prices, are putting a great
deal of poor material Into tbelr wheels.
The result has been the frequent break
ing of forks and frames, as well as of
lesser parts of the wheel, with a num
ber of fatal casualties following. The
proposition Is made In a Buffalo paper
that a Government Inspection of bicy
cle factories should be established to
remedy the evil. But If a plate bear
ing the name, address and guarantee of
the actual manufacturer were re
quired on each wheel It would proba
bly answer the purpose and save the
community the cost of maintaining an
other set of officials. Probably most
of the breakages occur In wheels sold
In Job lots to retailers and labeled with
fictitious names the manufacturers
thus "dodging the responsibility.'
The colonial growth of the leading
powers of Europe within the last half
century has been something marvelous,
when It Is considered upon the bssie of
square miles. It Is a good deal of a
question with many whether we ought
to add to our possessions Hawaii, the
Philippines, Cuba and Puerto Rico,
which embrace an aggregate of about
247,750 square miles, sn area consid
erably less than that of the State of
Texas. As compared with the absorp
tion of colonies by the great powers of
Europe such an acquisition by the Uni
ted States seems Insignificant. The
United Kingdom has an area of about
121,000 square miles, while It has col
onies covering 16,662,073 square miles.
France has an area of 204.092 square
miles, but colonies covering 2,505,000
square miles. The German empire em
braces 208,830 square miles In Europe,
but abroad she has 1.615,577. Spain has
on the peninsula 107.670 square miles,
but on other continents she bad, before
the war, 405,458 square miles, and If
ahe loses what the United States has
seized she will still have 244,302 (iquare
miles of colonial possessions. In pop
ulation these seizures would add about
12,000,000 to our present 75.000,000 In
habitant, which would make our total
about 87,000,000. But Great Britain
and her colonies new have 361,825,000
people, France 82,810,000, and Ger
many 60,500,000. There is, of course,
no argument In an this that we ought
to embark In the business of acquiring
colonial possessions, but It shows how
very little we should add to our borders
or population In comparison with what
other nations have done, and yet they
are, even now, so far from .being satis
fled that some of them are hanging
about our tracks like vultures In the
hope that out of the contest between
the United Statea and Spain they may
gobble up some Insignificant Island.
The unprecedented commercial pros
perity of the United States for the
fiscal year 1808 and the tremendoua
balance of trade in our favor have been
the subjects of extended comment
That our trade balance, which this year
amounts te $615,259,025, would break
all previous records was Indicated by
advance sheets sent out by the bureau
of statistics a Washington some time
ago. It was necessary, however, to get
complete returns for instituting com
parisons In order to fullv measure th
wonderful commercial advauce of the
United States in one year. To say that
for the first time 1d the history of the
country our exports are twice as great
as our Imports does not tell all the
story. A comparison of the total ex
ports of 1898. which were 9l,Zn,?Al,
868, with the exports of 1888 shows an
Increase of 100 per cent In one de
cade. It Is also Interesting to note the
directions In which this export trade
has been extended. It will be found
that our Increase of sales has been
most marked In those countries which
purchased but little of our products a
few years ago. A comparison of our
sales to foreljrn nations for the years
1888 and 1808 makes the following re
Africa $3,000,000 $17.0U0.000
Japan 4,000.000 21,000.000
China 4.500.000 10.000,000

years ago traded almost entire! t with

GRIMED with dust and sweat of
his work at the foundry, Peter
Gurncy wenrlly plodded his way
borne. A great longing for the rest and
comfort of his lodgings came over him,
and braced his tired muscles Into ac
tivity again, as he turned down the
dingy street in which he lived. There
was only one redeeming feature In
Worship lane, and that was No. 27,
and before its gate Guruey stood with
admiring eyes. Bright green paint
shone on door and railing a row of
sickly flowers struggled to show their
bloom In a box on the front window,
and neat window curtains bid the room
"It do look wonderful smart but not
half smart enough for her," he mut
tered as he pushed open the gate and
opened the door.

tiny mat be went straight to the

the scullery beyond.
"He's got some errands he'll be back
In a bit" be answered, as be sat In an
arm chair before the fire and gaz-d
approvingly around. Bright oleographs
were neatly fastened to the paper; the
wooden chairs and table were spotless
ly clenn and the grate was as bright
as labor could make It
"Well, Peter, how do you like my
pictures?" said a pleasant voice; and
Mrs. Dart drying her bands, came Into
the kitchen. Her trim, neat figure, her
refined accent and her sweet pale face,
all proclaimed her foreign descent, and,
together with ber tidy bouse and smart
dress, brought down upon ber the scorn
and hatred of her nelghltors.
The big man looked at her with a
wistful look, which she seemed to find
embarrassing, for she began getting
ready the supper.
"Lass," be said, turning his back to
her and leaning over the fire, "I'll not
be saying as how I haven't been well
cared for here, or that my lodge ain't
comfortable, but I'm going to find an
other, lass. If I can."
The girl's face grew paler yet and
her eyes contracted and dilated In her
"Going to leave us. Peter? When
we've leen such good friends. Why,
what have Dick or I done that you
should go away?" A little catch In her
voice and the tremble of ber chin
warned him that tears were near at
hand, and he sprang up and turned
"Ah, lass, you don't understand.

"I've offended yon, Peter," she said,
wilfully, not seeing his meaning.
"No, lass, you ain't offended me, nor
couldn't If you tried; but It's well I
must tell It. The first day I come here
I loved you, lass, and as It was, so It Is,
snd I can't stay here; don't you see I
can't?" Hia voice rose and trembled
with passion. "Ah, lass, you can't tell

scruples to the winds, and strained her
to his breast with a force that fright
ened her; abe tore herself away and
stood panting in front of blm. A heavy
footstep sounded on the flagstones out
side, and a loud, cheery voice called
out "Is Peter In, Missis?"
The pair stood looking at each other,
and, with a heartbroken sigh, Gurnsy
turned away and went silently to hla
At half-past 8 the two men left the
bouse for tbelr day's work In gloomy
silence. A fierce hatred for bis chum,
nursed by the evil thought of a sleep
less nlgbt filled Peter's mind, leaving
no time for Idle .talk. Come what
might he bad resolved In some way to
thrust his chum out of the way. "Sup

at length with their load, with the lat-
