" Anywhere else she would hava been
ailed Mead, bat Smoke ton people
were too bosy making money to pay
any attention to diphthongs, bo by
them the was limply ca'led aMod."
Mod's anrname waa Bangs, the
vowel of wbich was unduly prolonged
by the Smoketonions, as her dipthoog
waa unjustly shortened. There wis
nothing visibly heroic about Mod. She
was the eldest daughter of a Smoke
toa operative, teaching in one of the
cVmoketon public schools, the was
small and slender, awkward in perron
and movements, wi'h a protruding
forehead, lifeless looking sandy hair,
and email, dull, unexpreesive eyes.
Stephen Dare was not a bad fellow,
especially in his own opinion. lie
was a handfome young giant, with a
frank, merry face, usually obscured by
a cloud of soot ; for Stephen, though
only 25 years old, was a "boas" at
Brown's mill, the large t nail mill in
Smoketon. He was well off, too
very wealthy for a place whose xichist
men only couLted by tens of thous
ands; so it wal not wonderful, pel
naps that he wai much petted and
spoiled hv the Smoketon lassee.
The Eleventh Ward schoolhonse
was on Stephen's direct way home
ircm work, and, as Mod always re
mained there until 6 o'clock to study,
Stephen had got in the habit of calling
for her; and thence, one September
afternoon, tbey were walking home
together, when they fiist met Myra
Tracy.
"By jinks! aint she a daisy!" x
laimed Stephen, recovering his breach
and bis Smoketown vernacular when
the vision was gjne. "She is awfully
swell, but I bet you've got as much
money every time. ,Look here. Mod,
don't tell anybody, but I wouldn't
mind marryiog that girl!"
' "Whether ene'd have you or not, I
suppose?"
Have me? She'd be lucky to get
me poor as a church mouse. She'd
jump at me, I know!" -
Stephen waa more in earnest than
Mod supposed.
It was not a difficult mttter to ob
tain in introduction to Miss Tracy,
and when he asked permission to call
the girl had not, as she said afterward,
sufficient pretence of mind to refuse.
Myra, indeed, was profoundly amused
at kercelf, and scarcely less so than
Stephen. The handsome, ilLteiate
young giant was a new type to the
high bred, "cultured" Philadelphian;
and, though she considered flirting a
very unladylike proceeding, ber-ea-Ihstic
interest was sufficiently visible
to afford S:ephea all the encourage
ment he needed. When Stephen, at
last, avked Myra to be his wifa, and
was rejected with a haughty surprise
which she could not quite conceal, it
was Mod who was the hast astonished.
Stephen believed he understood the
whole matUr perfectly, for it was, in
fact, the presence of Champ Preston
in Smoketon which had huiried him
an to a declaration.
. "A long, buy, tow headed fool," was
his terse description of the all con
quering Champ, whose soft voice,
handsome face, languid elegance of
manner, not to speak oi nis attrac
tions in the way of stock, bonds and
landed property, had for several sea
sons made him the lion of Eastern
society. He had been abroad at the
lime of Mr. Tracy's death.
Immediately upon his ieturn he fol
lowed Myra to Smoketon, where, he
coolly informed her, it was his inten
tion to bivouao with the aborigines
until she was ready to be married and
return with him to civilization.
Myra readily allowed berselCto be
persuaded. Smoketon was more dis
tateful to her than ever since Stephen
had taken his dismissal in such vehe
mently bad part.
The waddiag day arrived at last a
waim, February moraine:, pouring
with rain. Iodeed, it had rained for
two days over all the surrounding
oountry. The river was unnsually
higb, and the Smoketon Trumpet had
already warned its readers to expect a
flood.
Mod had reason 1o fear that Stephen
intended to do some if jury to his suc
cessful rival. She knew he had bought
a revolver, and she saw him going to
the railway station on the morning of
tbe wedding as if to lie in wait for the
bridal party. She followed him and
found him there.
"Stephen," she said, holding his
eyes with hers, "they will not leave
today. The liver is rising ; all Smoke
ton is under water and the people are
drowning. Come with me and save
them, Come, Btepbep," the added,
solemnly, as he hesitated, gazing in
surprise at her transformed counte
nance, "prove yourself a man worth
loving. Let that be your revenge."
"Blamed if I don't' said Stephen
Dare.
He walked forward a step, drew bis
hand from his breast, and with a whirl
of his wrist sent something bright,
gleaming and sparkling into the fast
approaching water. Then, taking Mod
by the arm, he hurried ber away to
her home, where he put her within
the door, saying, briefly:
."Now you're safe, Mod; stay there,"
and then he hastened on."
Stephen Dare was the beat oarsman
InSmikstown, but he found himself
surpassed that day, not only in skill,
but in ceol, ready daring, for Champ
Preston had been the crack oar of Lis
aoliege, and had pulled stroke in many
a race, and now, with his bride's kisses
warm on his lips, he felt strong with
th strength often.
Apart at times, at other times to
gether, the rivals toiled, bringing
many a boat load of hall drowned
wretches to safety and such comfort
as was obtainable, while the rain still
fell and the watsr rose steadily higher.
As the darkness increased it grew
more difficult to avoid the logs, beams
and wrecks of all descriptions which
the terrible river swept downward
with resistless force.
One of these crashed at last into
Champ Preston's beat and crashed in
its side as though it had been an egg
shell. In half a moment it had filled
and sunk, and the towers were strog-
Elins in the black, raging current,
tephen's boat was close at nandl and
rushed at once to the rescue. .
Mvra and Mod in the meantime had
not been idle. There was much to be
done for those taken out ol tbe water,
and, as the two worked together, tbey
learned, if not to like, at least to re
spect each other. Every room In Mrs
Tracy's houre had been thrown open
to the tuffereis: mattresses, beds,
hastily improvised couches cf all de
scriptions, covered the floors, and
there did not seem t) be room for
even one more, when suddenly
Stephen stood before them, saying
BDxirurly:
"Now, girls, don't either of you fly
eff the handle. There's no charming
young widow in tbe party, for he's
alive and hers."
Myra Preston saw the white, uncon
scious fsce and form which four men
were bringing carefully in, and sprang
toward him with a low cry.
"Did you save him, Steve? Oh,
Steve, did you, really?" cried Mod.
Stephen turned and looked for a
moment into Mod's face, then, open
ing hia arms, drew her to his breast,
where, dripping wet as he was, she
laid her cheek in raptuous content.
"I won't bs left by every girl in
town," said Stephen. "I'll marry yon,
Mod. Tou kept ma from making a
fool of myself this morning, and 111
make you a good husband."

J tut now people in New Brunswick
are suffering severely from the long
continued drouth, says the - New
York World. No rain has fallen for
weeks, and the streets are dusty,
while the extreme heat all through
tbe city causes considerable soMarlng.
During all this while ex-Judge
Woodbndge Strong has been tbinking
bueilv with his ever planning, shrewd
and skilful brain. The grat question
in bis brain has been : ''Haw can the
drouths of summer be averted?"
He pondeted over this subject through
long and torrid days, through hot aad
restuss nights, and at last the answer
suggested itself.
His idea, ts put it briefly, is to bring
rain from clounds by concussion. He
claims that if kegs of dynamite or
nitro-glycerine or some other power
ful explosive are hoisted np into the
clouds by aid of balloons and are fired
by electricity tbe explosion will pro
duce rain in proportion to the amount
of the explosive used and tbe force
tf the shock caused thtraby.
"It wouldn't do," he admits, "to
send dynamite np in iron casks, for
the falling fragment might do consid
erable damage. AU that is needed to
bring about a storm is a small and
cheap balloon fastened to a wooden
cask tilled with dynamite. An electric
spark could he communicated along a
wire as soon as the air machine had
reached the desired height, and rain
would follow quickly. Tbe explosicn
would burst toe clouds. The wooden
incitement would be all blown to
splintera that in faUing would do no
damage. v
"Thus storms all over the country
might be regulated, if the government
would take up my idea and establish
rain producing stations all through
the United 6tat9s. By this method
man would control the heavens almost
as well as the ear. h. Cyclones, torna
does and hurricanes as well as drontbs
would all be done away with, Lr the
clouds would not be permitted to re
serve their contents from one section
to another until they had gorged
themselves with water for the pur
pose of flooding rivers elsewhere and
sweeping away entire towns. The
plan, I think, is a feasible one, and I
am going to write out my ideas and
publish them in soma scientific jour
nal. Why don't I experiment myself
before launching out my idea upon
the world? I have neither the time
nor money, but I believe thoroughly
that the thing may be made a suc
cess." NEPTKBIBEB.

Brooklya's Kamsaotk Suspensloi
Compared With Others In Eu
rope aad America.
Brooklvn Eagle: We, in tbe cities
of New York and Brooklyn, bave a
great interest in bridge-, for have we
not the East river bridge joising the
two cities? Brookiynitee are. perhaps,
more justly proud of it and interested
than the inhabitants of the sister city,
for in common parlance is it not gen
erally spoken of as "the Biooklyn
bridge?'' There are many large
bridges in the world, but thebeauti
ful structure over the East river is
without a rival. What is it gives it
this pre eminence ? It is certainly not
its length. In this respect it is far ex
celled by the Victoria bridge at Mon
treal, and als3 by tha unfortunate Tay
bridge at Dundee, in Scotland, whicn
is now being rebuilt The Vic
toria bridge is 10,330 feet long,
or within 180 feet of two miles:
the Tay bridge is, or rather will
be, 10,612 feet, or fifty feet over
two miles; while the Brooklyn bridge,
from entrance to exit, is only 5989
feet. Neither is the hight of the road
way at its center above high water
mark its distinguishing feature. Out
side of its beauty as an engineering
structure, the chief and indeed strik
ing feature of the bridge is the great
length of the central span, 1595 feet 6
inches. This never had been exceeded
before, either in suspension bridges
like tbe Brooklyn bridge or in fixed or
stable bridges like the Britannia bridge
over the Mecai Strait in England.
Tbe longest approaching span in sus
pension bridges is tbe Niagara bridge,
which has a single span cf 820 feet,
and in fixed or stable bridges the
Britannia, which has two spans, the
longest 405 feet each. It is, how
ever, hardly fair to draw a
parallel between suspension and
fixed or stable bridges their character
and formation are so entirely different.
Fixed or stable bridgea ran be made
to sustain a greater lateral pressure
than suspension. Tha chief objection,
indeed, to suspension bridges ts want
of stability, with consequent liability
of oscillation and with weakness in re
sisting wind pre sure. With the fixed
or stable bridge, on the central y, we
have the greatest amount of ttthility
with the least amount of oscillation.
But this plan of pre-eminence in
bridges is likely soon to be taken from
us, and that by tbe bridge over tbe
Forth in Bcotland. The Scottish "folk"
would seem to say in this instance
that tbev were going "to lick creation"
and have the largest bridge on record.
In the Forth bridge this will be at
tained. Itlstohavetwospansof 1710
feet each, which is not far short of be
ing four times as gnat as the spans of
the . Britannia bridge, and 115 feet
more than that of the Brooklyn bridge.
The hhjbt, too, of the roadway at the
center of the bridge at high water will
be 150 feet, while tbat ol our bridge is
only 135 feet The total length ol the
Forth biithte will be 8091 feet. It is a
fixed or stable bridge, and will be ts
solid and steady ts the bridge over the
Menal Strait?, the High bridge in Ed
inburgh. Ihe Waterloo bridge in Lon
don or the High bridge of New York.
We aie all familiar with tbe Brook
lyn bridge and the datails of its con
struction. Tbe realization seems
greater than the reality; for who,
twenty or thirty years ago, would
bave thought of such a structure across
the East river? But am h is the law
of profiretBand advancement In science
and engineering, not to speak of the
help lent by "necessity, the mother of
invention."
Of the Forth bridge little in a
general way is yet known or has beon
written. As a good example nf the
progress of engineering and bridge
architecture, bot to speak of tbe enor
mous capital and great interests in
volved in the undertaking, it well de
serves a few words. Anyone looking
at tbe map of Scotland will see that
on the East coast there are two rivers,
tbe Forth and Tay, which prevent a
through and direct line of com
munication from tbe Eogliah bor
der to the North without going
considerably to the westward.
This prevents the railroad lines on the
east from competing favorably with
their riva's on the west, who bave
continuous ' lines of communication
throughout the whole island. To do
away with tbe ferries of the Forth and
Tay, and to bridge these rivers over,
was therefore reasonable. The East
ern railroads could to'd through
traffic communication with the Nortn ;
but this only by a round about road,
and by having running powers over
the lines of their rival neighbors.
They wanted to get rid of this and be
their own masters. Hence tbey de
cided to bridge the two rivers aa far to
the eat as possible, f jr if tbe bridges
were not erected to the east the benefit
of a direct road would be sacrificed or
greatly curtailed.
With this obj set In view the build
ing of the great but unfortunate Tay
bridge wes first sanctioned in 1870,
This bridge was opened on May 31,
1878, and it was then thought tbat half
of the difficulty was overcome. But
disappointment was in store. Just ex
actly one year an seven months later,
in tbe great storm on tbe night of the
28th of December, 1879, the highest
portion of it was swept away while a
train going from south to north was
dashing across. Girders, piers and
train were suddelny engulfed in the
boiling sea. Not a single life was saved.
Seventy-five souls, it is said, met in
stant death. . The new bridge now in
process of erection is a girder bridge
of forty-one spans, with the longest
and central span 245 feet wide. It is
to be hoped that this bridge will have
a long life and be more fortunate than
its predecessors.
To complete the direct communica
tion, powers were obtained first in
1873 to proceed with the erection of a
bridge across the Forth. Some prog
ress had been made with the prelimi
nary works When tbe diaaitrons Tay
bridge accident occurred. The effect
on the Forth bridge construction may
be Imagined. At first it approached a
panic, and abandonment was seriously
spoken of. It went so far, indeed,
tbat in 1881 an abandonment set was
promoted, bot later better counsels
prevailed, and the bridge was to be
proceeded with. Modifications, how
ever, cf tbe original plan were sug
gested, and a new design was tha re
sult The Forth bridge is on the prin
ciple of an ordinary continuous girder
bridge, with cantilever supports cross
ing th" two deep waW channels.
Since the promulgation of the de
signs for this bridge we believe five
cantilever bridgea have been erected
in this country, and at present there Is
one being erected in India with an 800
feet span, for tbe government. Tbe
marvelous and peculiarly interesting
feature of the Forth bridge is the
enormous seals of the cantilevers, L e.,
"tbe skeleton like structures which,
resting on a btoad base, stretch out
their, huge bracket like arms over the
deep water." Tha approaches on both
aideis are without special lntrreat, be
ing simply girder bridges of tha ordi
nary type. Tha only feature about
them la the great bight of tbe pie's
and the fact that the girders are made
not of iron, but of Siemens rolled
steel. Tbe spot chosen fjr the erec
tion of the bridge was at North
Queenaferry, where, from the pro
trusion of a peninsula, tbe shores
of the Forth approach within a mile
of each other. Added to this the
island rock of Inchgsrvie stands here.
It is somewhat nearer the northern
than the sou' hern shore, and is almost
exactly in the middle of tho deep
water channel before referred to, and
divides it into two stretches of 1710
feet each. On the north aide the
depth balow h'gh water is 218 foet and
oa the south 107 feet. Indeed, but f r
the intervention of tho island, the
building of the bridge would bave
been entirely beyond tbe resources of
modern engineering. .Even with its
intervention, as a halt way rest, special
appliances bad to be designed and pro
vided. On the south side there are
ten piers, two on land and eight in
shallow water, including the lofty
cantilever pier at the junction of the
viaduct with the southern cantilever,
and on the north there are six piers,
including another great cantilever, all
on land. These piers are each 150 feet
high above lower waer, and on the
top of them are placed the gird
ers, twenty feet high, on top of
which again are laid the rails, thus
giving the required "fair way" at high
tide in midstream of 150 feet. There
are altogether three cantilevers, the
central one being on Inchgarvie, a
second one on tbe edge of the deep
water channel on the south, and a third
on the edge of tbat of the north. The
arms of tbe central one atretch forth
to meet the arms of the ones to north
and south. They do not, however,
actually meet. The distance between
each is 350 feet, and this Is joined by
a hor'-aonial girder bridge. Thus the
two deep water channe's are spanned.
Tbe span will have the appearance of
an arob, though it is not actually so.
The Forth bridge will not, by any
means, be a beautiful structure noth
ing to compete with the delicate cut
line and beauty of our biidge at home.
But it is not always possible for beauty
and usefulness to go hand in hand.
To those who, however, all the reali
sation of the useful see the beautiful,
"the dawning grandeur of the design,
and its manliest adaptation of means
to ends, will appear to be a marvelous
triumph of engineetiog skill, of patient
labor and of commercial enterprise."
THE NARRAGANSEIT BEACH.
A Chapter oa tbe Bevela-
- ., liana of She BalblnB Unit,
i "Gathn in the Clncinnsti Enquirer:
Tbe sea beach at tbe bathing hour ba
been much exploited at this point, and
I am not suie tbat I did not first call
attention to it when I came here seven
or eight years sro. At tbat time the
batbiog dreFses, such as worn at pres
ent, had not come intj univfrjal fash
ion ; we were a little provincial, and
when we eaw a floe woman come to
the beach in red stocking and a white
tkirt and breeches, with ber arms
bared to tbe armpits and, perhaps, a
square cut bodice upon her neck, we
wore a little surprised, as it were.
Since I bave been here tbjs tinio I see
every reason to qualify my former
sketch ; all the bathing dresses are now
composed of a skirt to tbe knee,
breeches under the skirt, loosely cut,
full hose to about the knee, and, gen
erally speaking, aims bare to about
half way up the muscle. The bodies
of the dresses now extend up to
the throat, and a full pro
portion of the women wear thoir cor
sets beneath the Jacket. Three-fourths
of the bathers wear turbans, some
times red, sometimes blue, aometimes
black, occasionally bandannas. In a
few cases you see a large red scarf
worn round the middle, with the ends
hanging almost to the feet But so far
from Ihe present dress having any im
modesty about it, I saw it put to the
test a day or two ago, when along the
batbiog bouse front walked a young
woman with illusion over her arms
and bust, and every person stopped
looking at the leg, of the female bath
ers to look at the arms and bust of
that girl. So manifestly the most Im
modest dress is that which is worn at
dinner and of evenings, in the privacy
of homes or the publicity of hotels.
The bathing dress which merely ex
poses the mnsoles of the arms snd legs
is commended by health, and seen a
few times ceases to awaken any excite
ment in the manly heart. Although
everybody at Narragansett exposes the
limbs, j on hardly ever see there a leg
without a stocking over it, whereas
if you go into the vicinity of New
York or to Atlantic City or Watch
Hill, you will find a large proportion
of the bathers with naked legs and
feet Bnd with such large arm holes to
their jackets, that they might ss well
have bad the top of tbe corsets cut off
and the fountains of life full v exhib
ited ai in seme of the fashions of
three quarters of a century ago. The
exper.unce of the sea bath is tolerably
clear evidence tbat not in ber feet but
in her neck and shoulders lies tbe
animal attrartivenesa of woman. The
host point about Narragansett is that
women who thus show their boss are
of a socially and spiritually refined
type. Tbe mere hoyden or maid sei
vant or actress whom you see dis
porting herself in the snrf, with
ber knees turned toward the spec
tators on the beech, may bo seen
in other places as coquettish with
her charms, bot at NarraganBett
you see the engaged woman, the young
heiress, the considerate or obedient
daughter, or the prudent and particu
lar wife, arrayed according to the de
mands of the bath. Nobody thinks
any evil, and in point of fact there is
but little flirtation in the water be
tween tbe sexes. There are not enough
men, in the first place, to take care of
all the womsn,and atNarrsgansettthe
women prefer each other's society in
general to that of men unless they
mean business and have good stand
ing. I was talking with an old ac
quaintance who has a family of daugh
ters and engaging wife upon hia piassa
at Marraganaett, when'this questional
dress came op, snd he said: "It is all
nonsense to pretend any woman can
learn to swim as long as she wears her
garters below her knees. She mast
arter herself above the knee ao as to
get everything free there, where the
bones and oords have a relay."
