Religion* Meeting at Long Cane.
A religious meeting commenced at.Lowei
Long Ca'ne, last FrlUuy, December 4, ana con
tinued until the next Thursday night by Kev
W. W. Orr, the church evangelist.
Dr. yioan reports It as one of the most ln^
tor?*Ktlno mMtinffs that hp has ever witnessed.
The whole country around there seemed
awakened, and, apparently mere was a general
revival o! religion. Some forty-dveoi
fifty persons Joined tbe church, and where It
was desired, in a few instances, certificates
were given to other cburc hes.
A spirit of prayer prevailed, and former
differences between neighbors, were reconciled,
and many persons resolved to lead better
paring tbe meeting tbe preacher referred
to prohibition, and asked for tbe sentiment
of The congregation, when a unanimous vote
declared the sentiment to be a favor stopping
tbe drink traffic.
Tbe same Evangelist opened a meeting at
Bradley on Sunday mornlDg.
Treasurer Blake received notice yesterday
that tbe time for the payment of taxes without

Mr. Samuel King, of Antrevllle, lost his gin
house, two bales of cotton, a lot of cotton
?eed and peas, by Are last week. It Is thought
that a apark from the engine started the tire.
There have been many gin bouses burnt
during tbe seaxou. The risk of tire, and tbe
small cost of having cotton ginned in town
would aeem to do away with the old plan ol
every man doing his own ginning. It seems
better to haul the cotton in the seed to market,
and dispose of the whole at once.
Capt. F. W. R. Nance was In town yesterday,
and compiled with all the requirement?
preliminary to entering upon tbe duties of
the office to which he has been recently elected
by tbe people. Tbe Captain is a graduate
of Ersklne College, and be will no doubt reflect
credit on his Alma Mater, and give perfect
satisfaction In the discharge of tbe delicate
and important duties which bis office

A blue rose la among tbe Impossibilities.
There is a law governing the coloring of flowera
which is simply this: The three colors,
red, blue and yellow, never appear in tbe
same a peel e6 of flowers; any two uiay exist,
but never tbe third. Thus we bave the red
and yellow roaee, but no blue; red and blue
verbenas, but no yellow; yellow and blue in
the various members of the viola famllly (as
ponslea, for Instance), but no red; red and
yellow gladioli, but no blue, and so on.

1 It is well known to engineers and
: bridge contractors that the ordinary
methods of lettting highway bridges
are very imperfect, and capable of
When a county is in need of one or
more bridges, it is customary to make
' an appropriation, and appoint a com?
mittee to advertise for proposals, examine
plans, and close contract for
r the work. Sometimes the advertise*
' ment will give length of spans, width
nf rniiilwiiv. and live lnan ner snuare
foot to be provided for; seldom more,
and frequently much less than this.
Very frequently the only information
given is that the committee at a certain
time and place will receive proposals
for bridging certain streams, the rest
being left to the bidder. Occasionally
when the committee desires to do its
whole duty, it will employ a local engineer
or surveyor, whose experience
has usually been foreign to bridge
building, to draw up a specification;
and the reading of such specification
often has on the bridge fraternity about
the same effect as one of Artemus
Ward's best efforts, aud the work
is benefited correspondingly.
All bridge companies, classed as
highway compauies have ageuts scattered
through the various States, a certain
amount of territory being assigned
to each. It is their business to keep
posted on all lettings "coming off in
their territories. A day or two in advance
of the time for which a letting
is advertised, agents to the number of
from ten to twenty-five will be gathered
on the spot taking such measurment
and levels as they can without
instrument and preparing their strain 1
sheets and specifications fov the letting.
If there is a fair prospect of being able i
to put up a job on the country, the
competitors call a secret meeting to de- <
cide the following questions: First, the <
greatest sum that they consider it '
would be safe to ask for the bridge; 1
i k.i<u . <
swuiiu, llie icost^uui iuab vrui uunu a bridge
a9 light a9 the country will J
accept; third who shall have the contract;
fourth, how shall the,profits be
It is readily seen that a letting under
such circumstances is a farce. The
representatives of the various companies
receive liberal salaries, and their
traveling expenses are necessarily
heavy, but until bridge commissioners
adopt a different policy the bridge
companies cannot do business without
such representation. Bridge companies
do not do business for fun or for
the glory there is in it, but to make
money and pay their stockholders a
dividend on their investment, and it &

IS BORNE ULTIMATELY BY THE I
So long as it remains obligatory on ?
the bridge company to send a repres- ?
eutative to the locality before he can ?
hope to receive a contract, it is but just 1
and right that the county should A
should pay the cost. Like the overcoat
that appeared invisible in the ?
drummer's expense account, the coun- 11
ty does not see this charge for person- 8
al attendance on lettings, but it is there ?
all the same. ?
A small pool simply means getting v
back expenses. A large pool amount- c
ing sometimes to 100 percent, of cost, ^
means not only this but a good profit ?
in addition. * P
It frequently happens that those 0
who do not get the work make more v
money out of it than those who do, and ?'
this fact has called in to the field nu- 11
merous "scalpers" who represent no 2
company but travel simply for the
profit iu pools. J
The existence of pools and the prob- o
ability of the couty paying too much
money for a bridge is not however the P
worst feature of the svstem. The coun- ^
ty has no protection againts unsafe ,
and worthless bridges. Some of the !,(
companies employ engineers who can 11
correctly design a bridge, and have ?
Bhops which can produce good work, J"1
while other companies cau neither
make good designs nor turn out good w
work, but the lowest bidder almost in- 11
varibly takes the work. When every- 11
thing goes to the satisfaction of the &
bidders and profits are large, the coun- a
ty, providing the contract is let to one P
of the best companies, has some little n
show of receiving a suitable and safe a
bridge; but when the builders cannot
agree on tt-rms, or when the appropriation
is too small, and it comes toa^
fight, every man bidding independent- c
ly and at the lowest possible figure, e
there is no show whatever that the
county will get a good and safe bridge; s
if the bridge will hold itself up until a
the contractor gets his money out of
it, he is satisfied, and if it falls down ^
shortlv afterward and kills a few Deo- a
pie it passes as an act of provideuce. 8
It is a deplorable fact that no highway
bridge company can succeed in busi- *
ness, and do uniforihiy honest, con- s
scientious work. They may know per- j
fectly well what ought to be done aud '
prefer to do it, but are forced to do as
their competitors do or go to the wall.
The larger bridge companies, known
as railroad companies, whose work
is confined exclusively to railroad
bridges and who have no agents, are
frequently invited to bid on highway
work. The writer has been connected
with such companies the greater part
of his life and has made not less than
a hundred honest estimates and low
nailed bids, in reply to such invitation
but he does not call to mind any contracts
that has resulted from them. In
fact when dealing directly with commissi>ners
or non-specialists all time
given to such work is a waste of effort.
The agents of the various companies
on the spot have a way of making the 1
committee believe that black is white,
and if a bidder has no representative
to defend him, it is better for him to
save his time and postage.
With railroad bridges the case is entirely
different. The railroad companies
generally know what they want,
specify it aud furn ish sufficient data
to base a bid on. It is not necessary
once in a thousand times to visit the
bridge site or the chief engineer of the 1
railroad before bidding, if it is done
n/vtkSnrr m fn V\n ira l n a/1 tlioraKir Tn
IJUblliu? 10 iv ut gaiu^u uitivwj t iu
the great majority of cases, the best
bidder gets the work.
All are required to follow the same
specification, and an expert is usually
employed to make sure that they do so.
Inspectors are also employed to carefully
test and inspect all materials at
steel mills and rolling mills, also at
bridge works to carefully inspect the
1 process of manufacture and the finished
product. The lumber, foundation
work, masonry and cement is also
. carefully inspected, and during or after
erefition. all rivets, bolt and con
' nection are examined, in short, every
1 individual piece of material that enters
into the structure Is carefully inspect'
ed and tested and all imperfect work

comes almost an absolute certainty
i that everything is a** it should be, and
that the bridge will do its work and
t aud do it well for a long period of
time. The same methods should be
followed with highway bridges. No
' one wouro think of sending a lawyer

doctor to plead an intricate case at lav
but this is in effect what a county doei
when it asks a committee to pass or
theplansand specifications fora bridg<
Some committees have the good sens*
to see that this is out of their line anc
that it requires a technical knowledg<
which they do not possess, and thej
callin an engineer who is expert or
such matters, to draw up general plans
and specifications, to see that contracts
and bonds are in proper form, and il
the expert understands his business
the county is sure to get a safe and du>
rable bridge, suited to the locality and
at the lowest market price.
By the average specification and
contract as submitted to the committer
Kir fKo KriHtrct nnmnon\r t.Via OAnfra/ifAi
binds himself to receive bis pay prompt
ly and does not bind himself to do
much of anythingelse. He generally
agrees to furnish a bridge according tc
strain sheets submitted, which, interfireted,
m eans that he will furnish the
ightest sections of the various shapes
that the mills are capable of rollind.
When a bill is presented it is a good
business policy before payment to investigate
it, and make sure the goods
have been received aud that they are
of the quality ordered, but when a
strain sheet is qresentedbya bridge
company the committee are poor judges
ot the good8,and are in consequence
likely to be cheated. If a strain sheet
claims to be based on a live load of
1,400 lbs. per lineal foot of bridge and
Is really based on a load of 800 lbs. per
lineal foot, which discrepancy is by no
means an unusual occurrence, how are
the committee to . find it out. If sections
marked 15 lbs. per foot are given
on strain sheet and sections* weighing

the committee to And. it out?
It has been estimated by some authorities
who have given considerable
attention to the subject, that an average
of thirty highway bridges give
svay every year in the United States,
sometimes under a considerable load
but often under next to no load at all.
Fhe amount of risk which some builJers
will assume under brisk competi;ion
in cutting down their material
ind cheapening thejir structures conlidering
that human life is at stake, is
eally surprising. That a much larger
lumber of bridges do not fall is due
;o the fact that they have never revived
anything approaching the load
tfhich under exceptionai circumstan>es
they may be required to carry and
vhich they should be designed to car y
with perfect safety. It is safe to aslert
that not twenty-five per cent, of

for the past twenty years has been

iteady improvement in specifications,

oode of manufacture, inspection and
upervision, as well as the great inrPHHp
In Insula nrnvirlerl fnr. tin t.hat nn
ailroad engineer could be found to-day
i?ho would accept bridges of the same
haracter as were common twenty
ears ago. At that time cast iron was
enerally used for all members in comression,
the effect of wind was not
onsidered, and the latteral systems
fere designated by rule of tnumb,
onnectors were often made greatly
aferior in strength to the members i
onnected; the size of the pins were
xed by their bearing any shearing
alues only, while the usually much
reater bending stress was not considred;
welds were allowed in all the
rincipal tension members structures
'ith ambiguity of stress were common
be effect of wheel or concentrated
rnds was not well understood and
oor systems were made much iuferir
in strength to the trusses; excen:icity
of stress was allowed to an airming
extent, its effect being neither
insidered or understood. These and
lany other defects that might be
lentioned and which are found to a
reater or less extent in all old bridges
re not found in designs made by caableengineers
or in bridges built by
jputable railroad bridge companies
t the present time. With
tie case is very different, the use of
ast iron baa been discarded to a large
xtent, but designs are not much beter,
neither, as a rule, are the bridges
afer than they were twenty years ago
nd so long as each is allowed to subait
his own designs on his own speciIcation,
use such material as he pleases
,ud manufacture and erect it without
upervision, they will never be.
Attempts have been made in some
States to correct present abuses, and
iafe practice by statute, but so far as
he writer can learn very little has
jeen accomplished. There is no quesion
that if each State employed an
expert bridge inspector by whom his
ilana for highway bridges should be
examined and approved and who
ffould be required to inspect all bridges
ifter erection, and who would have
jower to condemn and replace all unlafe
structures the object would be acjomplished;
but in the absence of
mch State action, each county must
Drotect itself from blackmail and from
jnsafe and \torthless structures in the
nanner indicated or suffer the consequences.
'TIs Worth It All.

firm hold of it; and yet many esteem
it so lightly that they would not go
through' even a little for it. St. Paul
