Missouri Engineer Says He Has Seen Several Structures, Otherwise Firm, Which riuve Been Swept Away B& cause of Their Insecure Anchorago. Tubular Piers as Substitutes. The question Is frequently asked, "Why are the bridges which wo build today less permanent than, those which the ancients built?" says l J. Kersting, deputy state highway engineer of Mis souri, hi Good Hoads, New York. One answer Is the Item of cost, chiefly bo causo wo build a vastly greater mini ber of bridges than did the ancients. We build solely for the accommoda tion of the public, as we live by peaceful pursuits, whereas the an cients lived by conquest, being almost continually at strife, and built mainly for army maneuvers. Heretofore financial conditions and the rapid growth of progress havo made It necessary to do some things In the line of bridge building which were regrettable because the prime object was to build cheap and sometimes quickly built structures. That state of affairs Is Improving, and I am sure wo nil ngree that the class of bridgcn wo are to build In this state In the fu ture should keep pace with the Im proved conditions. There are conditions when It Is tho best policy to build a mnsonry arch, n stool deck span, n concreto arch, per haps n steel arch or a steel through RjB& llltlDdES: LOWKlt ON 15 BU0WS CON- , St oitirns AuumuNTS.

"It Cured My BacR" I'or twentv-nine vcars I have been at intervals a great sufferer from rheumatism. During that time, no telling how many gal lons of the various kinds of lini ments and oils I have used and with but little relief. Recently, I was confined to my bed help Wa T irinrl Sloan's Liniment ten minutes it was perfectly easy. WTO also bo found to be economical In the long run to build concrete floors on all steel bridges regardless of the length of span. Many county officials through an er roneous Idea that they are saving tho county money build spans .much too short for the waterway required. This Is n serious mistake nnd the cause of the destruction of nearly all of those smaller bridges which have been de stroyed by high water. County engi neers should see that bridges are plac ed at a sufficient height above high water so that they will not catch drift. Partlcuhtr attention should also be given to the placing of anchor bolts. I have seen several expensive bridges washed off abutments during a time of high water when anchor bolts which had been omitted would have saved them. The state highway engineer is fre quently nskrd about tubular piers, and the Inquirer Is generally prejudiced against them. Tho proper material out of which to build piers or abutments Is stone nnd concrete. 'Tubular piers are, however, an excellent substitute. They have been used for years not only on highway work, but also by railroads. There are several reasons for this. In the tlrst place, thero is usually a vast difference In the cost, and were It not for the tubular pier many bridges In Missouri could not have been built. Concrete or masonry piers require more excavation, and when water level is reached an expen sive cofferdam Is required along with much more pumping than Is necessary In sinking a tubular pier, which Itself always acts as a cofferdam. When there is no rock foundation the differ ence in cost is even greater. There have been more fnllures of concrete nnd masonry piers than there have been of tubulnr piers, in most cases this is due to the poor construc tion of tho mnsonry. Therefore there are many masonry piers built of tho same class of stuff and In the same manner tho mason employs when building u cellar wall In his locality. Tho pressure against a tubular pier at time of high water Is not great ow ing to Its cylindrical form; it is also not apt to hold drift for this reason. It is bad practice to set a tubular pier on a rock foundntlon in n stream where It has only a foot or two of gravel or clay to penetrate. In this caso it is best policy to build a con crete or masonry pier even though the first cost fce twice that of a tubular pier. Notice That resolutions of respect uro published at 5 cents per linn.

Kidney trouble preys upon the mind, discourngesandlesseusainbition; beauty, vigor ana cueenul uess soon disappear when the kidneys are out of order or dis eased. Kidney trouble has become so prevalent that it is not uncom mon for a child to be born afflicted with weak kidneys. If the child urinates too often, if the urine scalds the flesh, or if, when the child reaches an age when it should be able to control the passage, it is yet afflicted with bed-wetting, depend upon it, thecause of the diffi culty is kidney trouble, and the first step should be towards the treatment of these important organs. This unpleasant trouble is due to a diseased, condition of the kidneys and bladder and not to a habit as most people suppose. Women as well as men arc made miser able with kidney and bladder trouble, and both need the same creat remedv. The mild and the immediate effect of Swamp-Root is soon realized.

Snys a writer in tho Scientific Amer ican: "A wonderful spectacle is pre sented by the sudden apparition of an insect's wing nt the completion of its metamorphosis. The transforma tioa of tho grub into tho butterfly, though familiar, Is none the less amaz ing, but the evolution of tho nctlve and gossamer winged dragon fly from its ugly and sluggish aquatic pupa is still moro impressive. Early on n May morn ing the pupa emerges from its cocoon nt the bottom of a ditch, swims on its back by paddling with its long haired paws to the stem of an aquatic plant nnd climbs up out of the -water. Then, after a mqmentary pause, tho skin suddenly bursts open nnd the perfect insect nppears, with closely folded wings, which soon unfold nnd assume their final form. "Tho older naturalists thought thnt the insect 'swallowed nlr,' with which tlie wings were Inflated. In reality tho air is absorbed in tho dlgestltve organs, causing an Increased blood pressure, which mechanically expands tho wings. The presence of dew is nlso necessary; hence the first flight is always made at dawn. "This spectacle of tho birth of a wing may bo observed In dragon flics reared in an aquarium, the atmos phere of which should bo moistened with an atomizer when tho pupa rises to tho surface."
