A Keen but Friendly Rivalry after
the Office of President Elect on
Tuesday Night.
The members of the ('arliiiiidale Cycle
club have been discussing for
weeks the probabilities or"lht senil-un-nuul
election, scheduled to take place al
the club house to-morrow evening.
As this Is the eve of election theie Is
nn Intense inteiest among the clubmen,
perhaps a greater Interest anil activity
than have over been manifested in a
club election. The presidency is the
chief element of interest. The rivalry
for tlilsj olilce while It Is between only
two candidates, Isaac Singer pud Jacob
Fuehs, is keen withal the most friendly.
The club Is an important factor In the
-oclal life of Cirbnndale and to be at
Its head is no small honor. That the
otllce should stir up such .1 frhmdly
contest as i on Is 110 small wonder. An
exceptionally large attendance is looked
for, to-monow evening. It Is expected
that the absentees will be exceedingly
few. The retiring piesldeut. It will be
lecalled, is Geoige S. Kimball, whose
absence from the club, though not pi
man'ent, will lie greatly fell.
Aside Horn the presidency, the only
olilee for which the cycle men will hove
any choice to exercise i in the election
of the board of governors. Fur the
live places to be Idled there ate eight
candidates, as follows:
President, Jacob Knell. Isaac Singer;
vice-piesldent. U.-ilpli llennle; secretary
fleorge !'. Jaims: treasmvr, Frank
Derby; Imaid of governois (live to be
elected) Dr. Day. ,loe liilhool, (iuoige

Hull did swallow a quantity of the po

Hull's act was the consequence It Is
believed of his physical suffering which
tho past week have kept him in con
siderable mental distiess. It will be
readilly recalled that lie was painfully
burned In the chinch fire, sustaining
injuiles that caused the physicians to
marvel over Ills smviving them. He
has not fully leeovered as yet, and is
still undergoing tieatinent, without
an abundance of means to meet the in

his condition ami the fact that lie wan
quite sick on Thursday and Ftiday

offered for his act. lie was about the

The New Shapes in Li Yida Corsets Ara Here, Now
These models correspond to the new modes wherever a radical
departure has been made In the style of dresses, It Is correspondingly
mirrored in the new La Vldas. La Vlda is the perfection of corset
making, Each pair is manufactured entirely by hand Is full gored
bias cut filled throughout with purewhalebone and manufactured from
the finest grades of imported materials. There's a special La Vlda
Corset for each and every different build or figure. They are made for
American figures and therefore do not require alterations as all French
Corsets invariably do. As there is no import duty to be paid, it is easily
possible for La Vidas to be 50 per cent, lower in price when equal in
quality to French Corsets of the same standard.

A Much Tolked-of Improvement." '
The stir the New Jersey Central's re
cent announcement made In regard to
its hourly trains between Now York
and Philadelphia, was far reaching.
Very lew cities can boast of such a
train schedule and the beauty of it Is,
that it's easily remembered a train
every hour on the even hour from 7 a.
m. to G p. m.
The locomotives, cars and Pullman
cars are tho most modern, the roadbed
is rock ballasted, and as only hard coal
Is used there is no smoke or cindeis.
Every train runs direct to Reading
Terminal, Philadelphia, without chungc
and many of thein cover the distunee In
two hours. The Reading route by which
the Philadelphia lino Is often known, Is
not only a short way to Philadelphia,
but It Is likewise the scenic route. Tills
service goes Into effect on May IS, but
In no way does It impair tho fast and
elegant service of tho Royal Blue line,
which will run Independently of the
Philadelphia line.
