The well established reputation o

The collapse of a number of bicycle
factories in the east is not altogether
due to prevailing hard times. In one
sense there has been an overproduc

thousands of people in Omaha who
want bicycles , but will not pay the
ruling prices. They are waiting for
the inevitable fall in prices of good
wheels. This was shown at the auc
tion of wheels in this city last week.
An outside firm sold nearly 300 wheels
here in a few days , at prices ranging
from $25 to $35 , and did not supply the
demand for them. When manufac
