" Anywhere else she would hava been ailed Mead, bat Smoke ton people were too bosy making money to pay any attention to diphthongs, bo by them the was limply ca'led aMod." Mod's anrname waa Bangs, the vowel of wbich was unduly prolonged by the Smoketonions, as her dipthoog waa unjustly shortened. There wis nothing visibly heroic about Mod. She was the eldest daughter of a Smoke toa operative, teaching in one of the cVmoketon public schools, the was small and slender, awkward in perron and movements, wi'h a protruding forehead, lifeless looking sandy hair, and email, dull, unexpreesive eyes. Stephen Dare was not a bad fellow, especially in his own opinion. lie was a handfome young giant, with a frank, merry face, usually obscured by a cloud of soot ; for Stephen, though only 25 years old, was a "boas" at Brown's mill, the large t nail mill in Smoketon. He was well off, too very wealthy for a place whose xichist men only couLted by tens of thous ands; so it wal not wonderful, pel naps that he wai much petted and spoiled hv the Smoketon lassee. The Eleventh Ward schoolhonse was on Stephen's direct way home ircm work, and, as Mod always re mained there until 6 o'clock to study, Stephen had got in the habit of calling for her; and thence, one September afternoon, tbey were walking home together, when they fiist met Myra Tracy. "By jinks! aint she a daisy!" x laimed Stephen, recovering his breach and bis Smoketown vernacular when the vision was gjne. "She is awfully swell, but I bet you've got as much money every time. ,Look here. Mod, don't tell anybody, but I wouldn't mind marryiog that girl!" ' "Whether ene'd have you or not, I suppose?" Have me? She'd be lucky to get me poor as a church mouse. She'd jump at me, I know!" - Stephen waa more in earnest than Mod supposed. It was not a difficult mttter to ob tain in introduction to Miss Tracy, and when he asked permission to call the girl had not, as she said afterward, sufficient pretence of mind to refuse. Myra, indeed, was profoundly amused at kercelf, and scarcely less so than Stephen. The handsome, ilLteiate young giant was a new type to the high bred, "cultured" Philadelphian; and, though she considered flirting a very unladylike proceeding, ber-ea-Ihstic interest was sufficiently visible to afford S:ephea all the encourage ment he needed. When Stephen, at last, avked Myra to be his wifa, and was rejected with a haughty surprise which she could not quite conceal, it was Mod who was the hast astonished. Stephen believed he understood the whole matUr perfectly, for it was, in fact, the presence of Champ Preston in Smoketon which had huiried him an to a declaration. . "A long, buy, tow headed fool," was his terse description of the all con quering Champ, whose soft voice, handsome face, languid elegance of manner, not to speak oi nis attrac tions in the way of stock, bonds and landed property, had for several sea sons made him the lion of Eastern society. He had been abroad at the lime of Mr. Tracy's death. Immediately upon his ieturn he fol lowed Myra to Smoketon, where, he coolly informed her, it was his inten tion to bivouao with the aborigines until she was ready to be married and return with him to civilization. Myra readily allowed berselCto be persuaded. Smoketon was more dis tateful to her than ever since Stephen had taken his dismissal in such vehe mently bad part. The waddiag day arrived at last a waim, February moraine:, pouring with rain. Iodeed, it had rained for two days over all the surrounding oountry. The river was unnsually higb, and the Smoketon Trumpet had already warned its readers to expect a flood. Mod had reason 1o fear that Stephen intended to do some if jury to his suc cessful rival. She knew he had bought a revolver, and she saw him going to the railway station on the morning of tbe wedding as if to lie in wait for the bridal party. She followed him and found him there. "Stephen," she said, holding his eyes with hers, "they will not leave today. The liver is rising ; all Smoke ton is under water and the people are drowning. Come with me and save them, Come, Btepbep," the added, solemnly, as he hesitated, gazing in surprise at her transformed counte nance, "prove yourself a man worth loving. Let that be your revenge." "Blamed if I don't' said Stephen Dare. He walked forward a step, drew bis hand from his breast, and with a whirl of his wrist sent something bright, gleaming and sparkling into the fast approaching water. Then, taking Mod by the arm, he hurried ber away to her home, where he put her within the door, saying, briefly: ."Now you're safe, Mod; stay there," and then he hastened on." Stephen Dare was the beat oarsman InSmikstown, but he found himself surpassed that day, not only in skill, but in ceol, ready daring, for Champ Preston had been the crack oar of Lis aoliege, and had pulled stroke in many a race, and now, with his bride's kisses warm on his lips, he felt strong with th strength often. Apart at times, at other times to gether, the rivals toiled, bringing many a boat load of hall drowned wretches to safety and such comfort as was obtainable, while the rain still fell and the watsr rose steadily higher. As the darkness increased it grew more difficult to avoid the logs, beams and wrecks of all descriptions which the terrible river swept downward with resistless force. One of these crashed at last into Champ Preston's beat and crashed in its side as though it had been an egg shell. In half a moment it had filled and sunk, and the towers were strog- Elins in the black, raging current, tephen's boat was close at nandl and rushed at once to the rescue. . Mvra and Mod in the meantime had not been idle. There was much to be done for those taken out ol tbe water, and, as the two worked together, tbey learned, if not to like, at least to re spect each other. Every room In Mrs Tracy's houre had been thrown open to the tuffereis: mattresses, beds, hastily improvised couches cf all de scriptions, covered the floors, and there did not seem t) be room for even one more, when suddenly Stephen stood before them, saying BDxirurly: "Now, girls, don't either of you fly eff the handle. There's no charming young widow in tbe party, for he's alive and hers." Myra Preston saw the white, uncon scious fsce and form which four men were bringing carefully in, and sprang toward him with a low cry. "Did you save him, Steve? Oh, Steve, did you, really?" cried Mod. Stephen turned and looked for a moment into Mod's face, then, open ing hia arms, drew her to his breast, where, dripping wet as he was, she laid her cheek in raptuous content. "I won't bs left by every girl in town," said Stephen. "I'll marry yon, Mod. Tou kept ma from making a fool of myself this morning, and 111 make you a good husband." BOW TO TAP TBE CL0UD3. EiJedge Woodrerldce ' Havel Method far Ptw dottac Bala. ; J tut now people in New Brunswick are suffering severely from the long continued drouth, says the - New York World. No rain has fallen for weeks, and the streets are dusty, while the extreme heat all through tbe city causes considerable soMarlng. During all this while ex-Judge Woodbndge Strong has been tbinking bueilv with his ever planning, shrewd and skilful brain. The grat question in bis brain has been : ''Haw can the drouths of summer be averted?" He pondeted over this subject through long and torrid days, through hot aad restuss nights, and at last the answer suggested itself. His idea, ts put it briefly, is to bring rain from clounds by concussion. He claims that if kegs of dynamite or nitro-glycerine or some other power ful explosive are hoisted np into the clouds by aid of balloons and are fired by electricity tbe explosion will pro duce rain in proportion to the amount of the explosive used and tbe force tf the shock caused thtraby. "It wouldn't do," he admits, "to send dynamite np in iron casks, for the falling fragment might do consid erable damage. AU that is needed to bring about a storm is a small and cheap balloon fastened to a wooden cask tilled with dynamite. An electric spark could he communicated along a wire as soon as the air machine had reached the desired height, and rain would follow quickly. Tbe explosicn would burst toe clouds. The wooden incitement would be all blown to splintera that in faUing would do no damage. v "Thus storms all over the country might be regulated, if the government would take up my idea and establish rain producing stations all through the United 6tat9s. By this method man would control the heavens almost as well as the ear. h. Cyclones, torna does and hurricanes as well as drontbs would all be done away with, Lr the clouds would not be permitted to re serve their contents from one section to another until they had gorged themselves with water for the pur pose of flooding rivers elsewhere and sweeping away entire towns. The plan, I think, is a feasible one, and I am going to write out my ideas and publish them in soma scientific jour nal. Why don't I experiment myself before launching out my idea upon the world? I have neither the time nor money, but I believe thoroughly that the thing may be made a suc cess." NEPTKBIBEB. A change creeps over nature. A deep flush Hounta to the maple leaf; the air ia clear.

MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL--SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER SOU. GREAT BRIDGES. - MAKTELOUS TBIUHPHS OF ESGI . HEEBIK6 fcKILL. Brooklya's Kamsaotk Suspensloi Compared With Others In Eu rope aad America. Brooklvn Eagle: We, in tbe cities of New York and Brooklyn, bave a great interest in bridge-, for have we not the East river bridge joising the two cities? Brookiynitee are. perhaps, more justly proud of it and interested than the inhabitants of the sister city, for in common parlance is it not gen erally spoken of as "the Biooklyn bridge?'' There are many large bridges in the world, but thebeauti ful structure over the East river is without a rival. What is it gives it this pre eminence ? It is certainly not its length. In this respect it is far ex celled by the Victoria bridge at Mon treal, and als3 by tha unfortunate Tay bridge at Dundee, in Scotland, whicn is now being rebuilt The Vic toria bridge is 10,330 feet long, or within 180 feet of two miles: the Tay bridge is, or rather will be, 10,612 feet, or fifty feet over two miles; while the Brooklyn bridge, from entrance to exit, is only 5989 feet. Neither is the hight of the road way at its center above high water mark its distinguishing feature. Out side of its beauty as an engineering structure, the chief and indeed strik ing feature of the bridge is the great length of the central span, 1595 feet 6 inches. This never had been exceeded before, either in suspension bridges like tbe Brooklyn bridge or in fixed or stable bridges like the Britannia bridge over the Mecai Strait in England. Tbe longest approaching span in sus pension bridges is tbe Niagara bridge, which has a single span cf 820 feet, and in fixed or stable bridges the Britannia, which has two spans, the longest 405 feet each. It is, how ever, hardly fair to draw a parallel between suspension and fixed or stable bridges their character and formation are so entirely different. Fixed or stable bridgea ran be made to sustain a greater lateral pressure than suspension. Tha chief objection, indeed, to suspension bridges ts want of stability, with consequent liability of oscillation and with weakness in re sisting wind pre sure. With the fixed or stable bridge, on the central y, we have the greatest amount of ttthility with the least amount of oscillation. But this plan of pre-eminence in bridges is likely soon to be taken from us, and that by tbe bridge over tbe Forth in Bcotland. The Scottish "folk" would seem to say in this instance that tbev were going "to lick creation" and have the largest bridge on record. In the Forth bridge this will be at tained. Itlstohavetwospansof 1710 feet each, which is not far short of be ing four times as gnat as the spans of the . Britannia bridge, and 115 feet more than that of the Brooklyn bridge. The hhjbt, too, of the roadway at the center of the bridge at high water will be 150 feet, while tbat ol our bridge is only 135 feet The total length ol the Forth biithte will be 8091 feet. It is a fixed or stable bridge, and will be ts solid and steady ts the bridge over the Menal Strait?, the High bridge in Ed inburgh. Ihe Waterloo bridge in Lon don or the High bridge of New York. We aie all familiar with tbe Brook lyn bridge and the datails of its con struction. Tbe realization seems greater than the reality; for who, twenty or thirty years ago, would bave thought of such a structure across the East river? But am h is the law of profiretBand advancement In science and engineering, not to speak of the help lent by "necessity, the mother of invention." Of the Forth bridge little in a general way is yet known or has beon written. As a good example nf the progress of engineering and bridge architecture, bot to speak of tbe enor mous capital and great interests in volved in the undertaking, it well de serves a few words. Anyone looking at tbe map of Scotland will see that on the East coast there are two rivers, tbe Forth and Tay, which prevent a through and direct line of com munication from tbe Eogliah bor der to the North without going considerably to the westward. This prevents the railroad lines on the east from competing favorably with their riva's on the west, who bave continuous ' lines of communication throughout the whole island. To do away with tbe ferries of the Forth and Tay, and to bridge these rivers over, was therefore reasonable. The East ern railroads could to'd through traffic communication with the Nortn ; but this only by a round about road, and by having running powers over the lines of their rival neighbors. They wanted to get rid of this and be their own masters. Hence tbey de cided to bridge the two rivers aa far to the eat as possible, f jr if tbe bridges were not erected to the east the benefit of a direct road would be sacrificed or greatly curtailed. With this obj set In view the build ing of the great but unfortunate Tay bridge wes first sanctioned in 1870, This bridge was opened on May 31, 1878, and it was then thought tbat half of the difficulty was overcome. But disappointment was in store. Just ex actly one year an seven months later, in tbe great storm on tbe night of the 28th of December, 1879, the highest portion of it was swept away while a train going from south to north was dashing across. Girders, piers and train were suddelny engulfed in the boiling sea. Not a single life was saved. Seventy-five souls, it is said, met in stant death. . The new bridge now in process of erection is a girder bridge of forty-one spans, with the longest and central span 245 feet wide. It is to be hoped that this bridge will have a long life and be more fortunate than its predecessors. To complete the direct communica tion, powers were obtained first in 1873 to proceed with the erection of a bridge across the Forth. Some prog ress had been made with the prelimi nary works When tbe diaaitrons Tay bridge accident occurred. The effect on the Forth bridge construction may be Imagined. At first it approached a panic, and abandonment was seriously spoken of. It went so far, indeed, tbat in 1881 an abandonment set was promoted, bot later better counsels prevailed, and the bridge was to be proceeded with. Modifications, how ever, cf tbe original plan were sug gested, and a new design was tha re sult The Forth bridge is on the prin ciple of an ordinary continuous girder bridge, with cantilever supports cross ing th" two deep waW channels. Since the promulgation of the de signs for this bridge we believe five cantilever bridgea have been erected in this country, and at present there Is one being erected in India with an 800 feet span, for tbe government. Tbe marvelous and peculiarly interesting feature of the Forth bridge is the enormous seals of the cantilevers, L e., "tbe skeleton like structures which, resting on a btoad base, stretch out their, huge bracket like arms over the deep water." Tha approaches on both aideis are without special lntrreat, be ing simply girder bridges of tha ordi nary type. Tha only feature about them la the great bight of tbe pie's and the fact that the girders are made not of iron, but of Siemens rolled steel. Tbe spot chosen fjr the erec tion of the bridge was at North Queenaferry, where, from the pro trusion of a peninsula, tbe shores of the Forth approach within a mile of each other. Added to this the island rock of Inchgsrvie stands here. It is somewhat nearer the northern than the sou' hern shore, and is almost exactly in the middle of tho deep water channel before referred to, and divides it into two stretches of 1710 feet each. On the north aide the depth balow h'gh water is 218 foet and oa the south 107 feet. Indeed, but f r the intervention of tho island, the building of the bridge would bave been entirely beyond tbe resources of modern engineering. .Even with its intervention, as a halt way rest, special appliances bad to be designed and pro vided. On the south side there are ten piers, two on land and eight in shallow water, including the lofty cantilever pier at the junction of the viaduct with the southern cantilever, and on the north there are six piers, including another great cantilever, all on land. These piers are each 150 feet high above lower waer, and on the top of them are placed the gird ers, twenty feet high, on top of which again are laid the rails, thus giving the required "fair way" at high tide in midstream of 150 feet. There are altogether three cantilevers, the central one being on Inchgarvie, a second one on tbe edge of the deep water channel on the south, and a third on the edge of tbat of the north. The arms of tbe central one atretch forth to meet the arms of the ones to north and south. They do not, however, actually meet. The distance between each is 350 feet, and this Is joined by a hor'-aonial girder bridge. Thus the two deep water channe's are spanned. Tbe span will have the appearance of an arob, though it is not actually so. The Forth bridge will not, by any means, be a beautiful structure noth ing to compete with the delicate cut line and beauty of our biidge at home. But it is not always possible for beauty and usefulness to go hand in hand. To those who, however, all the reali sation of the useful see the beautiful, "the dawning grandeur of the design, and its manliest adaptation of means to ends, will appear to be a marvelous triumph of engineetiog skill, of patient labor and of commercial enterprise." THE NARRAGANSEIT BEACH. A Chapter oa tbe Bevela- - ., liana of She BalblnB Unit, i "Gathn in the Clncinnsti Enquirer: Tbe sea beach at tbe bathing hour ba been much exploited at this point, and I am not suie tbat I did not first call attention to it when I came here seven or eight years sro. At tbat time the batbiog dreFses, such as worn at pres ent, had not come intj univfrjal fash ion ; we were a little provincial, and when we eaw a floe woman come to the beach in red stocking and a white tkirt and breeches, with ber arms bared to tbe armpits and, perhaps, a square cut bodice upon her neck, we wore a little surprised, as it were. Since I bave been here tbjs tinio I see every reason to qualify my former sketch ; all the bathing dresses are now composed of a skirt to tbe knee, breeches under the skirt, loosely cut, full hose to about the knee, and, gen erally speaking, aims bare to about half way up the muscle. The bodies of the dresses now extend up to the throat, and a full pro portion of the women wear thoir cor sets beneath the Jacket. Three-fourths of the bathers wear turbans, some times red, sometimes blue, aometimes black, occasionally bandannas. In a few cases you see a large red scarf worn round the middle, with the ends hanging almost to the feet But so far from Ihe present dress having any im modesty about it, I saw it put to the test a day or two ago, when along the batbiog bouse front walked a young woman with illusion over her arms and bust, and every person stopped looking at the leg, of the female bath ers to look at the arms and bust of that girl. So manifestly the most Im modest dress is that which is worn at dinner and of evenings, in the privacy of homes or the publicity of hotels. The bathing dress which merely ex poses the mnsoles of the arms snd legs is commended by health, and seen a few times ceases to awaken any excite ment in the manly heart. Although everybody at Narragansett exposes the limbs, j on hardly ever see there a leg without a stocking over it, whereas if you go into the vicinity of New York or to Atlantic City or Watch Hill, you will find a large proportion of the bathers with naked legs and feet Bnd with such large arm holes to their jackets, that they might ss well have bad the top of tbe corsets cut off and the fountains of life full v exhib ited ai in seme of the fashions of three quarters of a century ago. The exper.unce of the sea bath is tolerably clear evidence tbat not in ber feet but in her neck and shoulders lies tbe animal attrartivenesa of woman. The host point about Narragansett is that women who thus show their boss are of a socially and spiritually refined type. Tbe mere hoyden or maid sei vant or actress whom you see dis porting herself in the snrf, with ber knees turned toward the spec tators on the beech, may bo seen in other places as coquettish with her charms, bot at NarraganBett you see the engaged woman, the young heiress, the considerate or obedient daughter, or the prudent and particu lar wife, arrayed according to the de mands of the bath. Nobody thinks any evil, and in point of fact there is but little flirtation in the water be tween tbe sexes. There are not enough men, in the first place, to take care of all the womsn,and atNarrsgansettthe women prefer each other's society in general to that of men unless they mean business and have good stand ing. I was talking with an old ac quaintance who has a family of daugh ters and engaging wife upon hia piassa at Marraganaett, when'this questional dress came op, snd he said: "It is all nonsense to pretend any woman can learn to swim as long as she wears her garters below her knees. She mast arter herself above the knee ao as to get everything free there, where the bones and oords have a relay."
