In tho'Jiarkcr Bicvcle each and all boarings are nicely
ground and polithed aiter being hardened and tempered,
thus assisting a smooth, easy running bearing. All parts
are caerfully ii s-pectod and areof the best material. All of
these minor lt tails show in tho running qualities of the
machine, and the riders all agree that it is the pink of per
fection, runs very fast, swift and easy. To make a good
bicycle it requires pains. This is what we have talceH, and
it you ndo one of our wheels you will see. It Will show
you we have taken the pains to make it good. Thev are
also graceful and handsome. They rank with the" $100
kind, but we sell them for less. On our ladies' wheels the
J.uminum chain guards are a hit in the right direction
loos uvll, luu no lacing to break, no wood to split. Thov
are only put on high grade wheels. Ours are high grade.
Barker Bicycles are good value. We expect to sell mere
next year than tins; each year a few more. That is the
