A BRIDGE CURIOSITY.
Odd Structure In 3rexico Built of
As mahogany is among the most cost
ly woods in the world, it may well be
inferred that this tropical material is
not very extensively employed in the
construction of buildings, etc. A bridge
constructed of solid mahogany is cer
tainly a rarity, a curiosity. There is
one, claimed to be the only one in the
world, built of that material. This
structure is located in the department
of Palenque, state of Chiapas, republic
of Mexico. This district lies in the ex
treme southwestern part of Mexico,
near the boundary line of Guatemala.
This mahogany bridge is constructed
entirely of that valuable wood except
some iron supports, braces and nails
that are necessary. The bridge spans
the Rio Michol, and its total'length, In
eluding approaches, exceeds ,150 feet,
while the width is fifteen feet It Is
used by both teams and pedestrians,
and, although somewhat rude and
primitive In construction, it Is very
None of the timbers of the flooring
were sawed, for in that region there
are no sawmills, but were hewn and
In that section of old Mexico there
are several very large rubber planta
tions- and mahogany trees are quite
common. In clearing away the tropical
forests for setting out the young rub
ber trees the mahogany growths are
also cut down and removed. As this
wood Is quite abundant, some of it was
used in building the bridge.-American

FORCE OF WATER.
The Great Power That Is Exerted by
a six Inch Streamu.
The effect of the hydraulic motor,
which is now used for the purpose of
removing masses of earth, well nigh
passes belief. A stream of water is
suing from a pipe six inches in diame
ter, with a fall behind it of 375 feet,
will carry away a solid rock weighing
a ton or more to a distance of fifty or
a hundred feet. The velocity of the
stream is terrific, and the column of
water projected is so solid that if a
crowbar or other heavy object be
thrust against it the impinging object
will be hurled a considerable distance.
By this stream of water a man would
be instantly killed if he came in con
tact with it even at a distance of a
couple of hundred feet. At 200 feet
from the nozzle a six inch stream, with
a 375 foot fall, projected momentarily
against the trunk of a tree will in a
second denude It of the heaviest bark
as cleanly as if it had been cut with
an ax. Whenever such a stream is
turned against a bank it cuts and bur
rows it in every direction, hollowing
out great caves and causing tons of
earth to melt and fall and be washed
away in the sluices.

Strength of a 2c-ar.
Few people know that a grizzly bear
can give points to any other carniv
orous animal in point of strength. A
grizzly bear weighing just four hun
dredweight has been watched carry
ing a heifer of more than two-thirds
its own weight for two miles up the
most steep and rugged mountain side,
and this without pausing one Instant
for rest. The grizzly bear is the lar

tribe, but his cousin, the cinnamon
bear, runs him very close, and the big
white polar bear, though not really so
dangerous a customer, is capable of
performing the most extraordinary
feats of strength.
There are diversities of giving as
well as of gifts. To give a little with a
grand air sometimes seems to make
more of an Impression than to give
much modestly. The world hs not

Develops the Arms, Lungs n-nd Chest
and Trains the Eye.
+t is not only the muscles of the arm
which are tested by properly organ-.
ized rifle shooting. It supplies an ez
cellent exercise for the chest andi
lungs. One of the first things the young1
rifle shot has to learn is how to take a
deep breath, to fill the lungs with air,
and then to hold the breath while the
rife Is kept absolutely steady and the
finger Is gradually tightening on the
trigger. A glance at any successful
rife shot will show you a man with a
deep chest and full powers of breath
Any form of recreation which trains
the muscles of the arm and excises
the chest and lungs would seem likely
to be beneficial to health, but if that
is not enough there is the unequaled
training which rifle shooting gives to
'he eye and to the hand working:-with
the eye. The writer remembers hear
ing a mtisk~etry Instructor boast that
he had lengthened not only his own
sight, but the sight of scores of boys
whom he had taught how to use their
eyes In aiming at a target, by two or
three hundred yards. simply by con
tinued practice at long distance shoot
ing. It is astonishing what results can
be obtained in this way by placing a
rife on a sand bag raised on a tripod
and making the pupil aim as accurate
ly as he can at any distant object The
eye can be trained, of coirse, equally
well, thougiy the sight will not neces
sarily be lengthened, by aiming at ob
jects close at hand.-London Spectator.
Arson, Theft and 'Train Wreeking
Common, Forgery Rare.
Children's crimes are recognized by
criminologists as a large and impor
tant branch of criminology. The com
monest of children's crimes are arson,
stealing and train wrecking, and the
rarest Is forgery.
Arson, in the country especially, is
frequently a crime of childhood. Coun
try children set fire to haystacks, barns
and sheds In order tp see the great
bright flames leap skyward. Children
commit arson, in a word, out of a love
Children often -wreck trains. Some
times they do this from reading about
romantic train wreckers. More often
they do it out of curIosity. They pile
obstructions on the track to see what
will happen. They have no idea that
anything very serious will happen.
Children, of course, steal a good deal.
The best of men and women, looking
back on their childhood, can recall
many a theft. Stealing is natural.
Chidren now and then imurder. Their
motive is :ia:as jealousy. Thus in
Vienna ai boy of ten,. jealous of his
broter and sister. who seemed to be
more poetted than himself, kilied both
