How to Transplant Trees From Woods.

Whoever has seen trees in the forest
that were upturned by a tornado must
have been struck by the manner in
which the roots run very near to the
surface, and to a great distance. When
the roots of these trees are cut ofl" at
two or three feet from the trunk, few
or no fibrous or feeding roots are left:
and if the mass of tops is left, the
expansion of the buds in the spring
will not be responded to by a supply of
sap from the roots, and death must
follow. If such trees have the tops
completely removed, leaving only a
bare pole, they will usually grow when

-A story of a horse that counts
reasons comes from the New
ivick Home News:
A knowing horse in Sayerville has
for twenty years been a cart horse in a
brick 3'ard, and the habit of going ,
through a certain round of duties, day
after day, for eight months in the year,
has enabled him to do things which
seem to indicate the possession of men
tal faculties similar to some of those ;
possessed by the human race. It is an
old saying among farmers that crows
cannot count more than three, but tiiis
horse has the ability to count sixty-five. '
His routine of labor is to cart sixty-five '
loads of clay from the pit to the spot
where the clay is mixed or ground, and
then to go for a load of coal dust; and
now, without anything being said or
done to indicate the fact to him, when
he has deposited his sixty-fifth load he i
turns away from the clay pit and goes
to the dock for a load of" dust. This is
not his only peculiarity, for when he
goes to the pit he backs the cart up
kimself to the right place, and will take
Dnly what he conceives to be his proper
load. If more is put on, he backs and
ticks and rattles the cart about until
the load is reduced to what he consid
ers a proper quantity.
"The chicken of progress cannot be
jrowded back into the egg-scell of the
past," is the Litest paraphrase of the
faying that "resolutions never go backwards."

Tell me what a cantilever bridga
!s," said a reporter to an engineer of
one of the largest bridge companies in
me country. "I see that the new bridge
lcross the "Niagara River, to connect
:he New York Central and the Canada'
Southern Railroads, will be the first
bridge of that style built in America."-
"That is true,"" Was the reply. "But
first you ask me what a cantilever is.
We borrow the term from architecture;
i.- m:ins a bracket used to support a
balcony, etc. Now, in a cantilever
oridgethere are two brackets opposite
2ach other, each resting on a pier. The
shore ends of the brackets rest upon
ind are fastened down to another pier;
the outer ends, projecting over the
ivater. sustain a central span, merely
resting upon them and free to respond
:o the changes in the temperature. To
et a rude idea of the principle of the
cantilever bridge, place two chairs two
feet apart: put a foot-rule on each chair,
held down by a book; the ends of the
rules will not meet across the space
separating the two chair?, but by resjj
tng a third rule upon their ends the
bridge is complete. This is a skeleton
i :dea. Now, in place of the chairs sub-
-titute four piers of masonry: instead of
i the two rules, balance upon the piers
! two beams resting upon the intermedi-
ate ir.er-5 and with the shore ends ot the
Deani- placed upon and fastened to the
two extreme piers; another span resting
upon their outer ends substituted for
the third ruie, and this is the cantilever
"The shore arm of the cantilever or
bracket rets, as I have said, upon a
second pier, built back of the first one
at the river's brink. If there was no
such support any weight like that of
a railroad train if placed upon the
shore arm, would depress it toward the
ground and correspondingly elevate the
outer or stream end. It would be as
if, after perfectly balancing a plank on
a log, you should place a weight at
one end of the plank. But this is not
enough. Suppose the railroad train
had passed under the tower over the
main pier out upon the outer end of the
cantilever or balanced beam; the extra
weight would depress the outer end and
at the same time elevate the inner or
shore end. So the shore end not only
rests upon a support of masonry, but is
fastened to it, to prevent the train from
tipping the beam up into the air and
falling into the stream."
"Whatarethe advantages claimed for
the cantilever bridge?" asked reporter.
'For bridges having long spans the
sy-tem is asserted to be the most eco
nomical. Les material need be used
to secure the same strength, rigidity and
stillness than in a suspension bridge, for
instance. Less fale work or scaffold
ing is needed for the erection of a can
tilever bridge than for any other braced
structure, thereby making it capable of
construction with more ease and less
danger of disaster and with no obstruc
tion to navigation. The central span
renting upon the outer or stream ends
of the two brackets can freelv expand

with the heat ot summer and
wjtu the cold weather. One end of
ti,-,3 central span is fastened to one of
the brackets, the other end being
placed upon rollers. The deflection
from the horizontal under the full load
capacity of the bridge is not half so
rre.it as it would be in a suspension
l,ri,lre of the same length of sunn.
I .T" - - - - O 1
'Iiv explaining, in a general wav,
the process of constructing a bracket
J or cantilever bridge, you will be able tc
i ee the economy and ease of the work.
We will start with one iron tower built
J upon a pier of masonry, on the east
j shore of a stream. The first panel of
the bridge is swung into place" for the
! shore arm of the bracket and fastened
to the iron tower. A timber support
for each panel as it is put into place is
, all the false work required in building
i the shore end. As soon as two of
! these panels are built, by means of a
! derrick the first panel of the stream
! arm can be tied to the tower. The ex
tra weight of the two panels for the
shore end of the bracket will fully sus-
tain the single panel that is built out in
j the opposite direction over the water.
With this done.
that panel itself sup
plies the false work from which the
next one can be placed in position and
bolted to the fir-t panel. In this way
panel by panel can be advanced until
the outer or stream arm of the canti
lever is completed. Meantime, by
keei)inr the work on the shore arm in
i i n
advance of that on the outer arm, the
weight of the latter will not overbal-
opposite) shore of the stream, mean
time, the other"braoket or cantilever is
being constructed in the same way.
Roughly to illustrate the idea, take a
of the stream. The two he
strokes on the top of the perpendicular
lines represent the two cantilevers or
brackets. Make two downward per
pendicular strokes, one from the right
hand end and the other from the left
hand end of the tops of the right-hand
and the left-hand T respectively; these
represent the anchorage of the shore
ends of the cantilevers. Now your
bridge is complete, except the placing
of the central span to pursue our il
lustration, the drawing of a line to con
nect the two free ends of the T's. This
is done by running a wooden truss into
the intervening space a certain dis
tance: by means of a derrick fastening
cables to the projecting ends of the.
tniss flo:u the en( of tne PPos"te ctm"
tilever; then, by pushing and pulling,
the truss is gotten entirely across the
space. It furnishes then the scaffold
ing or false work needed for placing
the iron work which will make the span
complete from tower to tower. The
only false work needed, as you see, are
the" wooden truss for building the cen
tral span and the supporting timbers
for the construction of "the shore arms
of the brackets or cantilevers. These
are the general principles and the meth
ods of work in the construction of the

as there are many old bridges in Switz

new Niagara River bridge, however, is
the first bridge of any magnitude actu
ally built upon this svstem. The first
one in Europe will be the great bridge

of the latter work are B. Baker, C. E.,
and John Fowler. Mr. Baker is con

is regarded as the standard treatise on
the. cantilever principle. The Forth

Canses of Felicity.
Cold and heat play different parts in
:he production and reduction of felicity.
A dry and sharp cold wave exerts "a
gentle pressure on the surface of tho
body, which fills the nervous centers
with blood and helps to felicity of mind.
A long and piercing, easterly, chilling;
vind checks circulation, robs heat, and
produces even melancholic sadness.
A dry, genial warmth acts like a bracing
zold. A long warmth, with moisture,
2hecks the vital action and produces a
degree of depression which may be as
intense as that which is induced by
long exposure to cold. The seasons of
the year which are attended with least
exhaustion of the body are those which
favor felicity. When tiie exhaustion of
the winter and depressingspring months
has been removed by the warmth of a
genial summer and autumn, the time is
most favorable for serenity of mind.
On the other hand the exhaustion of
winter and spring induces depression,
and is no doubt the cause of that mel
ancholy whith renders the months of
spring the maximum periods of deaths
by suicide. Purity of the atmosphere
is an unquestionable aid to felicity. The
comparison of children living under
differing circumstances is sufficient
proof of this fact. The children of an
Dpen, well-ventilated school-room, how
different are they from those who are
jnmured in some of the close,
overpacked dens which are called
school-rooms. Compare the felicity
Df the children of the parents
ivho live out of doors, and even
af the children of the fields and
jpen streets, with that of the children
of the small trader, whose back parlor
Is living-room and play-ground, or the
felicity of the man or woman who
leads an out-door life with that of those
tvho live in the close office or work
room. There are still other agencies
which bring, or which check, nuraan
felicity, and which are as purely physic
al in character as those above re
corded. There are substances which,
taken into the bod', produce strange
contrasts in respect to felicity and de
pression. Foods well cooked, foods
carefully selected, foods supplied in
sufficient quantity to sustain the body
equally in all its parts, and so moderate
as never to oppress the nervous digest
ive powers, all conduce to felicity in
the most telling manner. Many com
mon foods and drinks atfect the system
specially. As a rule, all agents which
stimulate, that is to say, relax the arterial
tension, and so allow the blood a freer
course through the organs, for a time
promote felicity, but in the reaction
leave depression. The alkoloid in tea,
theine, has this effect. It causes a short
and slight felicity. It causes, in a large
number of persons, a long and severe,
and even painful sadness. There are
many who never know a day of felicity
owing to this one destroying cause. In
our poorest districts, among the poor
women of our industrial populations,
3iir spinning, our stocking-weaving
women, the misery incident to their lot
is doubled by this one agent. Dr. B.

Genuine haunted houses, with genu
ine spirits as their inhabitants, have b
2ome of late years rather rare in thi
city, but one of these abodes of ghostly
apparitions has been recently attract
ing the attention of persons residing ic
the vicinity of Kincon Hill. The three
story bay-window house on Silver
Street, nearly opposite the Silver Street
Primary School, occupied by a gentle
man named Roberts and his family, is
the building in question. For two oi
three years the place has borne the rep
utation of being haunted. Mr. Roberts,
on first renting the premises from his
landlord, was not aware of this fact, i
but on moving in during the month of
October, 1882, soon made the acquaint
ance of the spirits. Neither he nor
any one of his family had hitherto be
lieved in spiritual hocus-pocus of anj
kind, but the manifestations becoming
so frequent and alarming, he was forced
to draw conclusions to that end, as
nothing of a tangible earthly nature
which no could hold responsible could
be discovered by him or the force ol
amateur detectives into which the
whole neighborhood had resolved it
self. For awhile the ghostly visitants
did nothing that was particularly dis
tressing to the nerves of the uew
comers, the only phenomena being the
opening of doors by unseen hands, the
sudden and unaccountable extinguish
ing of lights in a room, the mysterious
movements of picture frames and other
ornaments and loud knockings on walls
and other noises at various time;
of the day and night; but
this did not disturb the equa
nimity or happiness of the house
hold to an alarming degree, and even a
more striking manifestation than all
these the playingof "Shall We Gather
at the River?" on the piano at mid
night was borne uncomplainingly. But
when small articles, such as work
baskets and their contents, sewing ma
chine fixtures, sheet music, toilet arti
cles, books, knives and forks, spoons, a
cologne bottle, a box of pills, and even
small pieces of furniture, became miss
ing with provoking regularity, in spite
of the strictest vigilance on the part of
the people dwelling in the house, it-be-jan
to look rather discouraging.
At any rate it was thought time to dc
something in the premises. The police
were called in, but without avail, as the
articles went their way in the stillines
of' night as if possessed of legs oi
wings, and the noises and other mani
festations became more violent lhar
As a last resort a spirit medium was
brought in, who conversed, with one ol
the unseen invaders. It claimed to bt
an "unrecognized and troubled spirit,"
seeking rest and finding it not. The
"recognition" sought would not appeal
to be of a very high order, probably 3
Police Court notoriety. The medium
made the intruder promise to vacate the
premises, which it did for several
months and up to last night, when it oi
something or somebod. fully as mys
terious, entered the house, took a fine
set of jewelry from a bureau drawer,
secured sonie silk handkerchiefs, s
watch and chain and a lot of small but
valuable articles. The house was gen-
; erally ransacked and everything porta

What Country Roads Should Be.
A road should be as straight as possi
file, so that it may be short; it should be
nearly level, so that it may not lessen
and waste the power of the horsr. in draw
ing loads up hills; it should be smoothe
and hard, because a soft, rough road
offers, in effect, precisely the same ob
stacles to a loaded wagon as a hill would,
and it should be made of durable ma
terials, that it may be cheap, service
able, and require the least amount of
repair to keep it in good condition.
It is very certain that there is not one
road in a thousand in the country that
comes up to all these qualifications. In
America we labor under the disadvan
tage of having no model roads from
which we could take pattern, such as
the English and Europeans have in the
ancient Roman roads, which still exist
and are yet in use after two thousand
years of service. The Romans were ex
cellent road-builders. Good roads and
rapid and easy communication were
necessary to the existence of the Roman
Empire, and the Romans soon learned
how to meet the requirements of their
condition. In modern times railroads
have taken the place of the ordinary
highways to a very large extent, and, in
consequence, the roads are simply means
of local communication, short journeys
only being made when and where rail
roads cannot be used. This may, per
haps, be considered as an excuse for
poor roads. But it is not and cannot be,
because the roads are the feeders of the
railroads, and every additional cost laid
upon the produce and materials hauled
to the railroads is a charge which ad
heres to them to the end. But in the
absence of other models, we ma- very
usefully take our railroads as patterns
to follow in the construction and main
tenance of the common roads. To a
great extent our roads are already made,
and as we have made them so we must
keep them. But railroads are improved
from time to time. Short cuts are made
to avoid great bends, and elevations are
lowered or low grades raised to get a
better approach to a level. So in ma
terial; steel rails replace iron and stone
ballast is used instead of sand and clay.
It ought to be the same with our roads.
Stone should be used instead of mud,
and broken or crushed stone should dis
place the wretched cobble stones, which
in many districts serve to lame fhe
horses and wreck the wagons and the
peace of mind of the fanners and travel
2rs. Moreover, the roads should be
made dry by a thorough system of
drainage, both superficial and under
ground, for a wet road can never be
kept in order, although it may be under
repair every day in the year. N. Y.
"Newspaper Row" used to be a fea
ture in Washington. The row of build
ings on Fourtccntn street opposite Wil

drifted to other quarters. Not long ago
noticed a paragraph in some news
paper saying that the "row" does not

Charles Sumner and Henry Wilson used
to sit in the New York Tribune office in

could be found occasionally talking
ift'airs at the correspondents, and Blaine
was a frequent visitor until the investi

find their readers much better pleased
