"The champion velocipdedstrian of this town is undoubtedly Jim Boyd. He can ride faster and jump off the highest bridge of any of them that have tried to tame the fiery, unconquerable steed. The other day he was riding down the hill by Barnes' mill at full speed, when as he approached the bridge the critter gave a shy to one side and leaped full tilt with its rider over the abutment into the creek, a distance of fully ten feet. Strange to relate the rider suffered no inconvenience except a slight abrasion of the knee. He claims this is parallel leap to that of old Israel Putnam."
