Decorah Bicycle Census—238 Wheels
—57 Kinds—$15,000
With the view of ascertaining the number of wheels being ridden in Decorah we have been taking a census of the wheels and riders during the past week. While we have secured a large portion of them we are sure that the list is not complete, and will be glad to hear from anyone whose name does not appear. The census shows there are fifty-seven different wheels being used. Of these the Decorah comes first in number, with thirty-seven. The Rambler is second with sixteen: the Fowler third with thirteen; and the Columbia fourth with twelve; Victor and Falcon eleven each; Phoenix ten; Westminster nine; and the balance from eight down to one each. At an average price of $60 each, which is reasonably low, the 238 wheels enumerated reach a value of nearly $14,000—quite a bunch of money to he invested in a single luxury even in a town the size of Decorah Look them over and see if your name is there. We know we have omitted the names of a number who ride but do not own wheels;—
