The Gables of tha Eaat RWer Bridge,
The four cables nre each 15 inches In
diameter, over two thirds of a mile long
(3,57J feet), and each consists of 5,282
galvanized steel wires, not twisted as in
a small wiro roue, but lying parallel
from end to end. No. 7 wire was used,
which is a links over one eighth of an
inch thick, and each cable was made in
nineteen strands. T ho coils of wire for
one strand were spliced together, so that
each strand consists of a continuous wire
running back and forth across the river,
and at each end passing around a groov
ed piece of iron called a shoe. The run
ning out and regulating of the wires oc
cupied a year and four months. After
the strands of each cable were made,
they wore united in one bundle, which
was wound from end to end with wire.
All the wire used had received live coats
of oil, and the bundle received another
coat before the wrapping; finally, the
finished cable was painted with white
lead and oil. Where the cables pass
through the tops of the towers, they rest
in grooves of iron plates, called saddles,
which are 13 fect long, 4 feet 1 inch
wide, and 4 feet 3 inches thick in the
highest part The saddles lie length
wise under the cables, and their tops
are rounded so as to afford an easier
bearing. Each saddle is supported on
40 wrought-iron rollers, 4J inches in di
anioter, which rest in grooves on an iron
The nineteen shoes, around which the
separate strands of a cable aro looped,
are bolted to as many Iron bars, which
are 12 fect long, 9 inches wide, and 3
inches thick. These- bars are laid side
by side in two courses, ten in the lowor
and nine in the upper. They are bolted
to another set of similar bars by moans
of pins running through eyes in the ends
ui an mu ours id eucn course, in mis
way chains of bars are formod, each
consisting of ten links, which reach
backward and downward to the anchor
plates, both plates and chains being im
bedded in the masonry of tho anchorage.
The anchor-plates are elliptical, star
shaped masses of iron, measuring 17J
by 16 feet. There is a series of holes in
the middle of each, through which the
last links of the chains are passed and
fastened by bolts. Four of these plates
lie horizontally beneath and close to the
rear wall of each anchorage. The mass
' of stone which holds these plates down
measures 129 by 1 19 feet at the baso, is
89 fect high on the front and 85 feet at
the back. The side of the Brooklyn
anchorage was dug down to the water
level, and a platform of timber was laid
under water upon which the first course
of stone was laid. Tho soil on the New
York side was so loose that piles had to
be driven in order to secure a firm
foundation.'. A Fernald, in Popular

Opened Both Doors.
Tb othr day, when it was pouring
rain, a citizen turned aside to enter a
store on Michigan avenue, tho door of
which was open. Ho made several at
tempts to piihh the umbrella In before
him, but the plncfl would not permit.
He WMftluudiiig there, looking puzzled
and annoyed, when the denier came to
the door and asked:
"Well, what is il?"
"Tho door is not w ide enough to ad
mit my umbrella."
'Ah! I see Just wait.'1
And lie straightway flung open the
atlier door to permit the man to enter.
After they had talked of this and that

brella suddenly shipped his leg and call
"By Goorgel what a dolt! If I had
dosed my umbrella I could hove cuter

Excessive economy is not one of the
dangerous tendencies with which local
governments In this country or in Eng
land have lately been throatened. The
difficulty sometimes is to avoid the
other extreme: to restrain that spirit of
Indifference which does not concern its
self with public expenditure so long as
tho p,resont generation Is provided for, at
the expense of the future. Until a re
cent date, so recent, in fact, that it la
quite within the memory of persons now
living, New England towns wero free

since the largest of, them un the forma
tion of a citv government, assumed a
liability of only 1100,000. In 1881 the
funded debt of the city of Boston was
nearly f 41,000,000. it. is true that a
large part of the increase in local in
debtedness, for which no ono can be
held dlrectlv responsible, was the bitter
fruit of a civil war. But deducting tho
amount of this item and all other nec
essary charges, a heavy balance still re
mains, une wno is luniuiar witn tno
origin, growth, and development of a
New England town, and reflects on the
prosperity which sustained its progress
for nearly two centuries, may well bo
startled at tho enormous increase of tho
financial burden within so recent a pe
riod.. . The old rule would not allow any
obligation to be incurred, unless it could
be provided for by immediate payment
The principle that children must not be
made liable for the debts of their fathers
was adhered to. If a highway was to
be laid out or altered, or a town or
school-house erected, tho rates were in
creased and the charges properly dis
tributed. Each able-bodied person was
obliged to share the expense. Thoso
who were too poor to meet tho demand
in the shapo of money or materials were
required to "work it out." Tho shifu
to which a particular locality was often
compelled to resort, in order to make up
its share of the public tax, show to what
extremities it was driven for want of
cash. Thus, in 1687, tho town of Hing
ham, Mass., was permitted to send in
its quota in the form of milk pails.
"Country pay," including live-stock,
grain, and other produce, was equally
availablo iu such emergencies.
In spite of the destitution caused by
the issue of province bills, tho disasters
attending tho expeditions against Can
ada, and the protracted war against the
French aud Indians, which caused the
prices of everything to rise enormously,
property was so much more evenly dis
tributed in those days than it now is
that no ono class in tho community
neemed to boar much more than its fair
share of local burdens. Each voter felt
a certain pecuniary interest In the ap
propriations. Tho law, accordingly, re
quired tho assessors to levy upon the
polls, as nearly as possible, ono sixth
part of the amount needed. There could
bo no injustice in tho method of appor
tioning the assessment by means of a
capitation or poll tax, whore c:ich ono
was as good as his neighbor so far as
wordly goods wero coucemed; almost
everybody having a "settling lot," an
equal right in lauds held in common,
and a scat at r meeting." Even later
on, when civilization had advanced and
great improvements wero in progress,
there was no inequality imposed by this
mode of raising one sixth part of the
But when cities and towns began to
spring up, with the vast increase of
profits in large business adventures, and
with wealth accumulated in the hands
of a few, it was found necessary to fix a
limit; and the poll tax, which in Massa
chusetts from 1812 to 1822 hud varied
from fourteen to twenty-seven cents,
with provisos that it should not exceed
a certain portion of tho whole tax, was
placed at $1,50, and finally, in 18(12, at
tho present rate of $2,00. Then canio
the war period, when the debt of Massa
chusetts rose from $7.fiOO,000 in 1HG1
to $21,673,695.68 in 18(14, and $28,477,
804 in 187;t, and tho dobts of the several
cities and towns at' the latter date to
$67,277, 1H8; amounting in the aggregate
to 4.68 per cent, of the eutire valuation

Why are Butchers Fat?

reason why so many butchers wero fat
"It's a butcher's misfortuno that ho is

Sauta Fe, New Mexico, is the oldest citv
iu the United States. It has reached the
end of its (list third of a thousand years-
its terlio-milleniHl period. 1 hoTertio-Mil-lcnnial
Celebration and Mining and Indus
trial Exposition, which will be inaugurated
there on the 2d of July and close on the 3d
of August, will be an event of great histo
rical as well as practical linuortauce to the
country at large. It is intended to com
memorate the three hundred and thirty
third anniversary of the Spanish settlement
of the place,
Which will constitute the practical part of
the celebration, will be an epitome of the
mineral, agricultural, horticultural, stock
and general industrial resources ami capa
bilities of the Territory. Those, therefore,
who r re interested in either mining, agri
culture or stock-raising will have a good op
portunity to visit New Mexico this season,
is the low lare will be a great inducement
to make the trip. Tho development of the
minis of this vast region has but begun,
yet in the past year the proportionate in
crease in the output of ore was greater than
in any other State oi Territory. New Mex

at Denver last season showed, more clearly
than anything else, the vostness of its min
It has been tho general belief heretofore
that agriculture in New Mexico would not
pay. This is an unfortunate error. At the
exposition will be seen samples of all sorts
of fruits and field products which vie with
those of prolific Kansas. With irrigation
the soil of the Territory can tie made to
yield immensely, and there is no pursuit
mote remunerative than that ot tanning.
Agiicultural products, of all kinds, bring
high prices upon a ready maiket, always
accessible in the growing mining towns,
nnd the cost of raising is comparatively
small. As a cattle and sheep country, too,
Isew Mexico cannot be surpassed. Her
valleys and mesas afford fine grazing
grounds fur countless herds. A3 the cele
bration at Santa Fe will be the means of
drawing a larger Dumber of people into the
Territory than usual, owing to the cheap
fare, an opportunity will be offered those
who may be interested in stock-raising
Besides the practical, the Tertio-Millenial
will embrace many features the most novel
and romantic. For Instance, three days
the lSth,!19th, and 20th of July will be
devoted to the presentation of historic
scenes. These will represent the period
which has transpired since the settlement
of the citv, each day to represent a century
of hiritory ami progress. Tho three civili
zations will also be represented that
which existed at tho time of the coming of
the conquerors, that which the Spaniards
brought with them and that which followed
the American occupation of 1840. These
representations will be illuntrated by caval
cades in costume, indicative of .the several
distinctive expeditions into New Mexico
and tho surrounding territory. There w ill
also be numerous tableaux, the whole com
bining to make one of the most novel .and
interesting exhibition ever witnessed in
this country. There will, in addition, be
various Indian games, races and dances by
the Pueblos, descendants of the nncient in
habitants of the Territory; auibtiseadi s and
sham fights by tho Zunis, with exhibitions
of their peculiar rites and ceremonies, one
of which will bo a primitive dance repre

dances and juggling; original Atcc dances,
in which both Mexicans and Indians will
