For some time past the question as
to whether the bicyclists should bo al
lowed oertain sidewalk privileges or
not, has been agitating the minds of a
n oo! tier of HoneBdals people. April 2,
lot, the borough fathers passed an
ordinance prohibiting bloyolists from
riding on the sidewalks or in the parks
waa understood among wheelmen that
so long as the privilege was not abused,
that they could ride on the less fre
quented walks of the borough when
tbo roads were in bad condition, nnd
also Ir.v the privilege of riding in the
parks. On T hursday the council caused
the following notices to be posted in
conspicuous places about the borough:
Notice is hereby given that, on tho sec
ond day ot April, le94, the town council
of Honesdale borough adopted, ami the
chief burgess has approved ut the follow
ing ordinance, to wit: Uicyci.f.s. Sec
tion I. That if any person shall ride u
bieyole on any of the publio sidewalks of
this borough (the. walks of the parks in
cluded! he shall, for the Orst offense, in
cur a penalty of $1; and for each succeed
ing offense a penalty of not less than J-J
nor more than f.j, the exact amount, being
discretionary with the burgess.

Observe, By order of town council.
W. A. Wood, Secretary.
To the uninitiated, let it bo known
that bicyclists as a rule are ordinary,
rational, humane mortals, and not as
many would believe monsters delight
ing in frightening portions and running
over them with their silent steeds.
Honesdale bicyclists in particular are
of an unanimous opinion that their
proper place is iu the roud. Pleasure
seekers only ride on pleasant days.
During wet weather bicycles are used
only for business purposes. After a
ruin the rouds of Honesdale, Main
street in particular, are iu such a terri
ble condition that they are impassible
to bicycles. Therefore the ordinance,
which, is entirely propsr in itself,
affects most strongly thu men who use
thoir wheels largely for business pur
poses. If the laws regarding the use
of bicycles are to be so rigid and ex
acting, it would be well to enforce
other laws relating to vebloles and their
propellers as obnoxions to pedestrians
as the bicycle and its propeller, for in
stance, the ordinauoo which reads as
follows: "That If any person shall suf
fer or pormlt his or her horse, ox, team
or other beast of draught or burden,
or his or her carriage, wagon or other
vehicle to stand, remain or stop upon
any of the cross walks in said borongh,
such person shall incur and pny a fine
of one dollar." But in the eyes of the
people who don't own bicycles and do
own horses, the cycles is the only
vehicle that is a iineiauce and an abo
mination. The roads to Honesdale should be
put in better condition.

"For twenty-five vears," savs a cler
gyman, "I have suffered untold miser

years I had to abstain from meats, but
after a brief nso of Paskola, the new
artificially digested food, I was able to
eat meat or anything elsa I desired,
with no ill results.
"Iu regard to my wife's cafe, I hardly

Then, as to the oniidren, a mother
writes: "Our little girl has been puny
and sickly from birth. In fact she has
been almost constantly under theoare
of our family physician. Still she
could not seem to gain tl e;h or strength.
Wo gave her Paskola and noticed a de
cided change for the better before the
first bottle was consumed. Her little
face, always wan and pate, began to
show the tint of coming health, and
she soon took on flesh rapidly. Our lit

has done for her. Yours very truly,

Starting from the faot that "food
is the source of life" the discoverers of
Paskola went a step further. How to
support and nourish the systom while
the digestive process is interrupted, to
sustain life while Nature (unburdened
with a task which for a time she can
uot perform) proceeds to repair
damages that was the qnestion with
them. In other words, eonld the work
of the digestive maohinery be done ar
tificially, furnishing a true food that
would be accepted by the absorbents
of the stomach and intestines, ontor
the blood nnd build Dp the body, with
out the immediate aid of the secretions
of the stomach, liver and panereus.
The final answer was Yes, and Pas
kola is that answer embodied in a form
which ignoring cod liver oil and all

it a practicnl test.
