News Briefs: The bicycle fever is on in full force this spring. The person who does not ride a wheel is rather out of date. An exchange remarks that just now almost the entire world appears to be in a state of unrest. Insurrections, rebellions, antagonism to ruling powers, riots, strikes and numerous other forms of disquiet prevail. It would seem as though a belligerent spirit possessed mankind generally and in many cases it is manifesting itself in violent forms that forebode anything else rather than peace and good will.
