RIDES HIS WHEEL ON A RAIL.
I'r.ink of it Dnrmlntll Wheelman to
E. 0. Wilbur, of 1127 liroadway, Oak
land, Is looked upon as a curiosity by
tho bikers of Alameda countv. He
races with railroad trains, rides his
wheel on a railroad rail, ami does
other niieor things. Thursday Wilbur
raced tho narrow-gaugo train from the
pier to Oakland, riding his wheel on a
single rail behind the speeding train.
Wilbur for some months has been prac
ticing ildlng his wheel on a single rall
load rail. I II.- method Is to take a com
panion wheel and use It for balancing.
In this mnnner he can ride on a rail
road track for miles. One hand Is
iifcd to steer his own machine, and the
other rests on the companion wheel
which ho pulls along by his side. Af
ter many experiments on tho Seventh
street track Wilbur decided ho wns pro
ficient as a rail rider. The sport on
the ground was not exciting enough
for him, so ho determined to ride a rail
over the long narrow-gauge trestle. At
7 o'clock Wilbur started out from the
molo behind a train with his two
wheels, one on the track and tho other
Jumping over tho trestle ties. Ho
made good progress, but was unable to
luep within balling dlstanco of the
train. Hut his speed was high consid
ering the fact that the slightest slip
meant a fall Into the bay. The Web
ster street drawbridge was crossed In
i.aioty. and when the rider an I veil at
First stieet he dismounted with the
remark: "I defy any other wheelman
In California to make that ride." Not
satisfied with this feat, Wilbur left Tib
uion yesterday on a run to Santa Rosa,
using the railroad track. The run was
mado In good time, and now the wheel
man Is looking for some other mode
of astonishing whcrlnirn. Wilbur slm

said Wilbur today. "I like to bo called
a crank and pointed out as a fool for
taking chancer. This thing of riding
a wheel In a rail Is only a matter of
practice. Any man with a steady nervo
and a little courage can do It. Next
week I am going to mako u trip from
the Oakland molo to San Lcnndro on
my wheel, nnd will ride a rail all the
way." San Francisco Examiner.

From two big black seeds planted two
months ago In tho garden of Mr. E.
H. Du Val have sprung plants which
nro blossoming Into curious flowers
that puzzlo those familiar with horti
culture, says tho Baltimore Sun. Tho
flower will probably bo named "Du Val
Illy," nH It is n now one In Maryland.
Mr. Du Vol's garden Is In the rear of
his home, Whltmoro Heights, on 2d
street, Wnlbrook, across the way from
tho hnndsomo resldcnco of Mr. Julian
Lo Hoy White. It has become u curiosi
ty whop for Ilowors from the uso of
seeds and cuttings which nro sent to
Mr. Du Val by horticulturists all over
tho country In order that ho may try
them In Maryland soil. When tho two
black seeds arrived In May from a New-
York seed houso Mr. Du Vnl had them
planted In n choice place In tho garden.
In became Interested In tho two shoots
which soon sprang up from the seeds.
The tender stalks wero tightly curled In
a knob, like that on a growing lima
bean stalk, until the stems woro nearly
n foot high. Then the curl straightened
und n bushy plant developed, from
which soon rose a llowcr stalk. An
other thing which aroused Mr. Du Val's
curiosity about tho new plants was the
Information ho had received with the
seeds that they came from a cross of a
"Jinison" weed with tho common yel
low or white Illy, which abounds In
old-fiiHhloncd gnrdens nnd about old
country places. The ".Unison" weed,
or Jamestown weed, ns It Is more prop
erly known, receives its name from
Jamestown, Vn., whero It was first
Known In this country from Its growth
about refuse heaps. It Is of Asiatic
origin, Is n variety of stramonium nnd
has a disagreeable odor from tho leaves.
Its flower Is a deep purple In color.
From this strange admixture of plant
life Mr. Du Val has brought to the Sun
office the first bloom. Tho flower Is
nbotit eight Inches long nnd measures
six Inches ncross the bell-shaped
corolla, which In Indented like both the
parent flowers, the polnta ending In
tendiil-llke twists, ns do the "Jlmson"
weed flowers. The corolla Is purple
outside, while the insido Is of cream
color. Three lajers of fleshy petals
mako up the blossom, the petals being
Joined with what tailors would call a
"lap seam." A green calyx supports
the flower, which grows on n stout
stem. Tho deep purple color Is con
tinued In the stamens and pistil, which
form a group deep down In the Illy cup.
The loaves of the plant are like magni
fied oak leaves and when pressed emit
the true "Jlmson" weed odor. Mr. Du
Val will report on his s-tiango lily to
tho KoetlDiiion nnd will retain some of
the coeds for future experiments in his

A funny little .story comes to us from
Kiisula In connection with tho fetes fot
the czar's coronation. A member ol
the American mission, an army olll
cer, was calling on LI Hung Chang.
It so happened that this member had
a very pretty and charming daughter,
whom LI Hung Chang so greatly ad
mired that he asked the father's per
mission to fcend some flowers to her,
which of course was granted. Imagine
the American ofticer's feelings, how
eer, when LI Hung Chang had carried
down to tho carriage an enormous
wrenth of white heliotrope, with an ap
propriate mourning Inscription. White
heliotrope was the only flower that n
Chlnnmnn could offer to a young girl,
the Chinese statesman explained.
Thcro was no place to disposo of the
flowers except on tho top of t c.ir
iluge, nnd as tho American was i his
way to Join n procession to spend the
ilny going nbout to ceremonies and
functions, there was nothing for him
to do but to carry tho wreath with him.
"Think beautifully," said tho doctor
to hia sleepless patient, "and you will
fall tranquilly nsleep. Can you try?"
"That depends," answered tho pn
tlfiit, "on the size of tho mosquito."
The word "language" comes from tho

The Cretins, like the Armenians, nro
Christians, and It is for this reason
that they are being massacred. Their
slaughter Is accompanied by the snmc
circumstance. of horror ns was that of
tho Armenlnns. Old men, women and
children are outraged and murdered
nnd nameless cruelties arc committed.
The Sultnn is again demonstrating
Hint he Is a monster, capable of nny
crime. Ho hns permitted during the
space of two years every conceivable
outrago and cruelty to be perpetrated
under his authority and by his ouicers
In one part of the unhappy land which
ho rules. Now he allows the same
crlmo to be committed In another part.
As In tho other case, he Is doggedly re
sisting overy effort to obtain mercy for
tho victims of his brutal offlcers.
In personnl Intercourse with Euro
peans tho Sultan nppears to possess
many of the qualities of civilized hu
manity, but thoso superficial qualities
do not mako less hideous tho crimes
which ho hns permitted. He Is really
an Infinitely worse savage than King

Behanzln of Dahomey, or King Prem
peh of Ashnntee, whom tho French nnd
EngllBh havo ruined for their nllegeil
misdeeds. The Sultan Is a criminal un
fit to live, let nlono to rule.
Will tho Cretans fare any better than
tho Armenians? That is still an unde
cided question. It Is not probable that
they will get any moro help from the
sympathizing civilized world thnn did
the Armenians, but on the other hand
It Is likely that they will mako a good
light for themselves. They havo strong
friends In tho Greeks, to whose race
they belong, und Greeco mny even de

ans from extermination.
The Cretans are now In open rebel
lion, nnd nro holding their own In cer
tain parts of the Island. The Turks, on
the other hand.havo slaughtered Chris
tians In tho cltSas nnd destroyed mnny
of tho unprotected villages of tho coast
which were easily accesslblo to the sol
dlors. Some photographs sent to England by
tho Rev. William Dourchler, chaplain
of tho British war ship The Hood, give
a vivid and grewsomo Idea of Turkish
methods In Crete. Tho Hood witnessed
a series of outrages committed by
Turkish war ships, but under Instruc
tions from the government was power
less to Interfere.

wants to mako earth a hell for tho un
believer whllo ho lives, and to Insult
his remains when he is dead.
In tho Galata churchyard tho Turks
havo deliberately dug overy grave,
thrown rubbish Into It, scattered tho
bones about tho ground nnd destroyed
tho crosses which served as tomb
stones. Many other graveyards wero
Somo light Is thrown on such conduct
by tho following Mohammedan prayer,
which Is sanctioned by tho highest nu
thorlty nnd Is recited flvo times dully
"Oh, Lord of nil creatures! Oh. Allah!

Cretans have been exterminated or

the Turkish conduct In Crete nnd In
