—"lt seems to me," said tho expert
wheelman, "that I wouli hesitate a long
time before I took a little child en the
wheel with me. Not that I would be
afraid of falling, but I would be very ap
prehensive that eome clumsy rider should
run into me. It never occurred to me be
fore until the other night, that gave me a
cold chill, and sent my hair up on end. I
was tundliDg along on ray wheel and just
ahead of me was a gentleman with a little
child —his baby daughter—in a basket
seat on his wheel. As he nea :ed Pearl
street there cauie around the comer at
a tearing pace a scorcher with his head
down, shoulders humped and pedaling for
all he W2B worth, lie was looking neither
to the right nor the left. The man on the
wheel with his little daughterju.it manag
ed to get out of the way in time to avoid a
collision, and I could see the man's face
grow white as he realized what he and his
little one bad escaped. The danger does
not lie in the liability to fall, but in colid
iug with other riders. It that scorcher
had hit tho man on the wheel with his
daughter it would have knocked them
both off, and serious injury would have
been done."
