Pend d’Oreille Review

May 14, 1920 — BICYCLE RIDERS WARNED

Chief of Police Ernest Kitchen has warned those riding bicycles on the city’s sidewalks that hereafter they must take to the streets or flirt with arrest. The chief said the main reason is that juvenile cyclists menace small children and pedestrians by riding with too much speed. The warning was not issued earlier as street conditions made bicycle riding impossible except on the walks, but with roads now in better shape, there is no excuse for riding on the walks.

SUGGESTIONS FOR A CAMPING TRIP

Buy a bottle of Chamberlain’s Colic and Diarrhoea Remedy before leaving home. As a rule it cannot be obtained on a hunting, fishing or prospecting trip. Nor can it be obtained on board the cars or steamships and at such times and places it is most likely to be needed. The safe way is to have it with you.
