The wheels will go round more vigoroiisly than ever this year, if the number of them which have already been so d can be taken as indication oí the future. The number and variety of bicycles on exhibition at Samson's emporium is truly remarkable; about 100 wheels are already in stock, and more are coming; every day. Over 300 wheels and 50 tandems 'have been contracted for, including most of the reliable makes and at prices which are much lower than they were last year. "What under the canopy!" was an exclamntion frequently heard last year as the famous Fox companion wheel, surmounted by a canopy, appeared in sight. This year Mr. Fox has another companion wheel, the "Dúplex," which has three wheels instead of two, thus enabling two persons who have never mounted bicycles, to ride in saf ety. Inboth cases the riders sit side by side. Another novelty in the bicycle' line is a tandem which can be sepirated, the front seat taken out and the two wheels put together, making a handsome and perfeclly substantial single bicycle. Fifteen different makes of wheels are now on hand, and purchasers will be able to take away the identical wheels they piek out, instead of waiting for duplicates to be ordered from a sample. Other novel'ies in the bicycle line are expected, and all persons interested in this kind of machines will enjoy looking over the display. PERSONAL. Mrs. S. A. Sage is quite 111. J. B.
