REPAIRS COST ABOUT $2,500
Appropriation Has Been Exceeded,
But Committee Regarded Expendi?

Safety of Public.
Street enr traffic over the Twenty-'
fifth street bridge, which bus been
cloned several weeks for repairs, was
resumed yesterday and the regular
sehedulo of the lines Is now In effect.
Tomorrow the bridge will ho closed
again, but it is probable that the re?
pairs will have been completed lato
About $2,500 has been spent in re?
pairing and strengthening the viaduct
ami It Is now In belter condition than
It has been in years. About $500 In
excess of the appropriation for steel
and Iron work has been spent, but tlio
highways and sowers committee and
Superintendent of Streets Harwood
deemed this absolutely necessary in
order to malt?! the structure safe. Tho
steel girders under the flooring wore
found to be In worse shape than any
one suspected and the men who aro
doing the repair work declare It is
wonderful thnt something did not give
way before the brldgo wits closed.
Tho steel and Iron work cost some?
thing over $1,400 and tho new flooring
and painting cost about $1,000. It Is
believed that the bridge Is now strong

2 BRICK COURT.
Tempi,- Chamber? ?<> Which Oliver
(idldnmlth A iinmoil lllmuelf.
Few buildings link the London of tho
present day with so many of the liter?
ary characters of tho London of tho
past as docs the house at 2 Brick
court, Middle Temple. The dominant
memory which clings around It Is thut
perpetuated by a handsome tablet ou
Its front elevation bearing the words:
In tlie;io chambers died
On tlio nh o( Apt., 1774.
and u medallion of the poet.
Goldsmith's, however, was seldom a
lonely figure, and ho gathered arouud
him at Brick court nil tho wit of tho
metropolis of his day. In 1705, on tho
strength of the success of "Tho Good
Natured Man" and the fact thnt he
was making some ?.100 a year, "Goldle"
expended ?100 on chambers "up two
pair right" and Utted them with showy
carpets, gilt mirrors and furniture ex?
travagantly upholstered In blue velvet.
Thus equipped, ho embarked ou a
course of expenditure In which line
clothes for himself, grand dinners to n
literary coterie and pretty trlUes for
venal beauties all bore costly parts.
Johnson, Dr. Arne, Percy Reynolds,
Francis and Bickcrstnff wore among
the frequent visitors at 2 Brick court,
but their arrival was not the cause of
so much concern to (ioldsmtth's cotcu
nnts as that of some other of the poet's
guests. It was the little supper parties
to Goldsmith's young friends of both
sexes that drew from tho studious
Blackstone, hard at work on his famous
"Commentaries" In the rooms below
"Goldle's," bitter protests against tho
racket of his "reveling neighbor."
Both "The Traveler" and "The Vicar
of Wakencld" wero published soon aft
, or Goldsmith moved Into Brick court,
but the Income they brought him was
Insufficient to withstand tho drain made
on his resources by his extravagance,
his generosity nnd his taste for gam?
bling. Owing ?2.000, unable to obtain
further advances from his booksellers
and seeing no way out of his embar?
rassments, Goldsmith broke down In
spirits nnd health. He had to lonye
those windows from which he used to
watch the rooks In the grove, which
once stood where now Is Elm court,
nnd, ns be wrote, "often amused my?
self with observing their plan of
policy." Goldsmith returned thither,
nevertheless, to die, nnd though he was
carried to his last resting place through
rows of weeping women the benches
of the Temple appear to have valued
him so little that the very place of bis
burial became forgotten. For that
neglect the tablet came ns tardy but
welcome reparation.?London Tribune.

In which these men cun settle the

final lows looks as fair as It does

my point of view it does not look as
if he Intentionally fouls Cans, If
he fouled him at all.
