tance of more than 150 miles. Perey
Schock of Marietta was also along

Samuel! Gaffin also started with them,
but before he rode a mile his bicycle
broke and by it he received some pain
ful scratches and bumps, the way his
bike unloaded him. The wheelmen
started at 4 o'clock in the morning
and by 10.30 there were on Lancaster
aveaue, beyond 52nd street, Philadel-
phia. After partaking of a hearty
dinner and an hour’s rest, they started
for the return trip and were home by
8.30 o’clock in the evening. Their
eyelometers showed that they role

we ever heard of any bikers making
in this section, A century run, by
which 100 miles are meant, is gen-
erlly expected to be all that a bicy-
cler can do in one day.

P| grumbled the new station master,
as his eye rested scornfully on the scattered
collection of wooden shanties which made
up the little western town. “Back in Perry:

playin’ now. I ¢’n see th’ wagon all cov

front of th’ Methodist church all ready, for
th’ little girls in red, white an’ blue that was
to represent th’ states. ‘An’ Judge White
'ud a been all ready with his copy o’ th’
declaration under his arm, an’ askin’ every-
body, if they, thought it was going t’ rain 'n
spoil th’ doings. We'd a had dinner at th’
grounds with th’ Hollises an’ th’ Perrys,
me’n Libbie an’ th’ kids. They'd a been
singin’ of th’ ‘Star Spangled Banner,” and
we'd a had plenty o’ firecrackers an’ fire-
works at night. Well, T ain’t mentioned
th’ Fourth t’ th’ kids this year; maybe
they'll forget it with nothing t’ remind ’em
of it among these furriners.”
His dull eye came slowly back from the
dull line where prairie met sky.
“Yes, 1 guess th’ glorious Fourth don’t
mean much t’ these Swedes an’ Dutch.
As he watched, a fat little German was
excitedly climbing to the roof of his rickety
board dwelling with a roll of bunting; un-

At the same moment the tiny upper win-

the way. From down the road came a

smelled still of paint. Ten minutes later,
three American youngsters, with flags in
their caps and strips of buniing about their
shoulders, had joined iz the singing. The

He called on Mrg, Hill on Sunday
morning and she consented to see
him. They were alcne in the room
when the double tragedy was enacted.
The position of the bodies indicated
that Shenk held the woman while be
ghot her in the head. When he saw
that she was dead he walked to a
rocking chair. placed his pistol be-
hind his right ear and discharged the
bullet that ended his life.
8henk premeditated the murder.
He sent a letter to his firm telling
them that he intended leaving the
country. Another letter addressed to
his father asked him to care for his
child, as he would never hear from
him again, and he asked his father
