Noue other can pain me as you, dear can do; None other can please me or praise me as you. Remember the world will be quick with its blame, If shadow or stain ever darken your name, "Like mother like son" is a saying so true, The world will judge largely of mother by you. Be yours then the task, if task it may be, To force the proud world to do horn age to me; Be sure It will say, when its verdict you've won, "She reaped as she sowed," lo this is her son.

BRIDGE NEWS AL1GJI LINE Will Build Bridge Over Salt River -Last Obstacle to Success Removed-Other Bridges. TRESTLE OVER LEAD CREEK. The last obstacle which confronted the Bridge Commissioners in construct ing the bridge over Salt river, between Hardin and Jefferson counties, has been overcome by W. C. Montgomery, the Hardin county commissioner, ef fecting a settlement with Max Cetf, of Louisville, for his section of land which was to be used as a right of way. When Commisslsner Montgomery started out to secure a right of way for the bridge on the Hardin county side he was unable to buv Mr. Cerf's sec tion at the figure set by the commis sion. The County Court of Hardin county then condemned Mr. Cerf's land. Mr. Cerf appealed his case to the Circuit Court. The case would have been placed on the docket in March. The announcement that the final liti gation over the building of the bridge has been settled will be receiyed with much gratification by residents of both Hardin and Jefferson counties. Since Mr. Charles F. Taylor, Bridge Com missioner from Jefferson county, has secured the right of way on his side of the river, work on the bridge will prob ably be started immediately. The es timated cost is between $60,000 and $70,000, ten-elevenths of which will be paid by Jefferson county. The completion of the bridge will be of great value to the farmers of Har din, Meade and Bullitt counties. Lou isville Post. Lead Creek Trestle Completed. The Henderson Route has completed the rebuilding of a wooden trestle in the lower end of town across Lead creek, which has been giving them so much trouble, and the boarding cars and hands left Monday. It will be re membered that this trestle gave very little trouble until the flood of last July washed away the utone county bridge nearby, which had stood for 60 years. With this structure gone be tween it and the river, drift came down against the piling so strong that the trestle would not hold. This improved and rebuilt trestle embraces a steel span of sixty leet underneath which there is no trestling, thus giving an open space of sixty feet for drift to pass through. This steel span is mounted on heavy piling, and practically all of the bridge is now new and safe. The slow orders, issued to all trains near this spot, has been withdrawn, and the usual speed is maintained. No one in authority seems to know whether or not it is still the plan to change the road to get around this creek in the spring. Chief Engineer Wood, of the Hender son Route, is here with his wife for the winter, and has been the consulting authority on this and other work which is being carried on in cutting down the big hill in the "Narrows" above town.
