Clerk A. D. Wyatt of the board of selectmen has just received from State Engineer II. M. Mcintosh of Montpelier a copy of the report of Engineer Jaspef O. Draffin on the strength and carrying capacity of the wooden bridge over West river at Brattleboro, based on notes taken by Prof. A. E. Winslow and an examination of the bridge by Dr. Draffin. The report covers six typewritten pages of letter paper and covers much technical ground that would not be of interest to the general reader, but in a nutshell Mr. Draffin does not see much possibility of permanent improvement. - The bridge is a combination of the lat-ticed-trusa and arch types. The arch ia practically independent of the truss," be connected to the truss work at a '"n comparatively few places. The load iK carried to the arches by means of vertical iron rods which pass through beams placed cross-wise under the trusses; as the truss deflects under its own load and that of traffic, the deflection carries a load to the arch. At present there is ft con siderable lateral deflection of the struc ture and a tipping of the top in a down stream direction. During his examination of the bridge Mr. Draffin stood on one of the arches, nearthe top, while a.truckload of gravel passed over, and he says "there was a very perceptible swaying of the "whole structure." The wind load Is consider able, he says, and as the portal bracing is almost negligible the wind load is a very important factor. The effect of this w shown by the way in which both ends of the bridge have tippea downstream. : In order to have the bridge stiff, and able to resist the .wind load, large be cause of the length of the bridge, there should be a good system of, bracing be tween the two upper chords, also suffi cient bracing between the chords and the web or inclined memliers. ' "There ms a large amount of bracing between the chords," the engineer reports, "but it doe not appear to be very .effective ; it is not connected rigidly enough." i ' . Engineer Draffin summarizes his re port as follows: "The bridge appears to be top-heavy, and it lacks rigidity, es pecially as regards bracing.--r Because of its length, the dead load stresses consti tute the greater part of the stresses in the bridge. Both upper and lower chords are stressed to their allowable limits by dead, wind and snow loails alone and the upper chord by dead load,, wind load and a six and one-fourth, ton truck. The stringers are not stressed to the limit by a six and one-fourth ton truck, but as the tabulated stresses make no allowance for impact it does not seem advisable to recommend a . heavier. loading as allow- to take the children into their homes lable because if impact were considered should ,be sent to the New York office the stresses would reach the allowable William S.

Sherwin of Londonderry for damages of ."00 through the law office of Ryder & Graham of Bellows Falls. The papers are on file in the county clerk's office and the suit is returnable at the September term of 'Windham county court. ,;? Mr. Sweet claims that on May 14, 1920, at Londonderry, Mr. Sherwin sold him a rair of grey mares known as the Philip Bull twins, fraudulently representing that only one of them was slightly still forward and tiiat otherwise botu were free from fault and were good workers. The price paid, according to Mr. Sweet, was $2ii0, and the plaintiff alleges that both mares were still forward and were not good w orkwers and that both were restive and ungovernable in harness.

Numerous complaints have been made to State's Attorney E. W. Gibson of late concerning the reckless manner, in which many automobilists drive through Main street.

The arch is stressed beyond it allowable limit by any combination ' of loads and as the effect of high stresses in the arch is to cause a sidevrise bending, the condition of the bridge confirms the analysis. "Since practically all members of the bridge are stressed to or beyond the limit by the dead load and a six and one fourth ton truck it would not appear that the .expenditure of a large sum for re pairs would be justified. If the -bridge were strengthened up and thoroughly braced it would be mud safer and would give service for some time, but on aecount of the present condition of the bridge, the type, and the small amount of head room available for bracing it does not seem to me to offer much possibility of permanent improvement.' ; , Silk for Consistent Hindus.
