A DREAM IS REALIZED
SPANNING THE NORTH RIVER, ONCE
A TASK FOR GENII.

veU of Engineering Involved.
.
When a group of enthusiastio and
wealthy men met ten vcars &sn nnd ba.
riously proposed the building of areat
bridge to span the North river, the idea
was scoffed nt as impossible of achieve
ment and absurd. Individuals had long
talked or such an undertaking, but they
had been looked upon as dreamers.
True, the East river had been bridged,
but in that success the limit of engi-
eering skill had been reached. The
new bridge could not be built unless
by the aid of genii such as shine in the
pages of the "Arabian Nights." Yet
the group or preijectors went earnestly
, lhey had faith in American crnius
and did not need Arabian genii. It did
not trouble them that they were charged
nth dreaming dreams and peeing vi
ions. They consulted with engineers,
ad plans carefully drawn and hix
CHrs ago made their first formal effeirts
toward their gre it end. Their plana
ere for tho building of acantalever
bridge, with a river span of 2,000 feet
nd u tower 1,000 feet in midstream.
Hut tho greatest of the tasks that
face'd the bridge projectors wero not tho
physical difficulties. There was tho con
gress of the United States and tho soo-
Koiitii KivF.n nr:iDCK.
retary of war and the legislatures of
two great rival states, with their con
flictinc and iarrinc interests. Thero
wero city boards to meet and conviuce,
and thero were an innuity of peculiari
ties, prejudices, all forms of selfishness
and a multitudo of private nnd corpo
rate interests to combat. Diplomats
were needed even moro than engineers.
a i : . : .... . i,
ect or acanraiever oriago. inoFcereiary
of war held that no bridgo could span
the mii?htv Hudson whoso construction
required tho placing of a pier in mid
stream, for it would mcau the certain
injury of commerce. Tho chamber of
commcrco nlso opposed it. Other organ
izations did tho tsame, and a new start
had to bo taken.
It was determined to Miner n pusnon-
. .
sion bridgo ncro.-s tho stream. It was to
bo an enciucerins fe at greater than had
rvrr lirrn nttemr.trd. Tho rontructinc
of such a bridge involves difficulties
vastly greater fli an 't ho?o of a cantalever.
Tho central span was to bo o, 254 feet
in length. Tiio llocr was to bo loO feet
above tho water. It was to boj road
enough to havo six parallel railroad
tracks nnd cf such strength that if ' all
of tho tr.irk.-3 wero filled from end to
end with lo:ulod cars tho bridgo would
no moro waver under tho strain than if
only a featherweight lay on it. Tho
towers wero to reach far below tho
p.irth's surfaco end crawlo with tho
rock, nnd they wero to 'riso toward tho
sky. Tho bridgo wai to bo twico tio
length cf tho Brooklyn bridge, and its
towers wero to bo twic o ns high. Tho
new plauH wero attacked as fiercely as
tho old. Tho opposition took a different
form, but tho sumo array cf rival inter
ests, of railroads who did not need tho
bridgor of business men whoso fortunes
might bo affected, cf lobbyists, cf legis
lators, again faced the projecteu-s. Tho
secretary of war gavo bis official sanc
tion to the plans, and congress was
gained. At length also tho legislatures
of the states wero won, after long argu
ments and delays. Hut even thcu it was
found hard to find a place where tho
bridge would bo permitted to touch the
city. Interests of great magnitude felt
themselves too nearly affected to allow
it to enter if entrance could be prevent
ed. It was hoped that tho bridge could be
located nearly opposite Forty-second
street and have a straight entrance into
the city. This would at least have been
best for the architectural appearance of
the approach to the bridge, but it was
not to be. Permission was fiually won
to locate the New York cud at Fifty
ninth street That was too far north for
the terminal station, into which the pas
senger trains from all thoruilroads that
now end at the western shore of the
river were to bo run.
The projectors fixed upon the section
between Broadway and Forty-ninth and
Fifty-first streets, aud the ingenuity of
their engineers planned a six track via
duct, that would havo a compound curve,
to reach that spot, while ono street should
be spanned by the great station build
ing. It was estimated that the cntiro
cost of tho bridge and terminal station
and tho approaches would be fully $C0,
000,000. Yet such tremendous figures
AA nnt dnter them. The freight was to
bo carried alosg the shore of the river
tknA nnnaAtA nt kfnHnnfl.
With the winning of the consent of
the necessary officials and bodies, tne
next step was to secure enough capital
for the entorpriso. ,Tho impossible was
again shown to DO possible, ana a
Milnn with n nnrdtalof t25.000.000,
was formed. Most of tho stock was
tftWn hr Americans, but tt third was
held by Englishmen. And then came
the queerest interruption to the plans.
The trouble with England in regard to
Veneruela began. The relations of the
two countries became strained. The
Londoners withdrew in a panio, taking
tkt .nrvtwUh them, and this 10 dis
eouracti raarry cf the others thai tht
affair cas to aa ijrnoninions enain?
Thus a little South American nation
spoiled the project of tho bridge.
Not only dnos bopo spring eternal,
but so does capital, if a project bo right
ly pushed. A now corporation was or
ganized, nni again wero tho plans put
forward. Englaai again held ouo-third
of tho capital stock. It was necessary
to find a company willing and able to
4ume a contract for building the
bridge. That company was found, and
yesterday morning at 11 o'clock the
pages were signed that bound the New
York and New Jersey Bridge company
and the Union Bridgo conipany to mu
tual responsibilities, the contractors giv
ing a bond for $1,000,000 that they
would build according to the plans.
They havo contracted that the total cost
will not exceed $25,000,000. This is
for the bridge alone. Tho approaches
and the terminal station will bo ar
ranged for later. They agreo that with
in six years from the date of beginning
work tho bridge will be completed, and
it is expected that work will bo begun
early in the coming summer.
Tho bridge will indeed be more won
derful than the achievements of tho go-
nil. Tho weight suspended by tho cable
will be, when the bridgo is empty cf
trains, :!,00o tons. ()v r 100,000 cjibic
yards cf masonry will be used in the
construction of tln toweis. Anchor
plates that weigh 2 tons oaeh will bo
handled like toy. The concrete tilling
alono will Ijo 20,000 tons. Three thou
sand men will toil in mills that tho
iron and tho wiro may bo made. Whe n
tho bridgo is fairly under way, 2,500
men will each day bn employed on va
rious parts cf tho work.
Tho beautiful creation, swinging it
self across tho Hudson, will bo a marvel
cf beauty when eompleti'el. And the
chango that its erection will mean fcr
tho city cf New York cannot bo fore
told. Instead of a number of ferries
discharging bunches cf passengers into
this city at various points along the
North river thero will bo one mighty
stream, with its outlet near Central
park. Another of tho miracles, there
fore, that tho men cf tho bridgo will
work will bo a readjustment of tho
business center of tho city, and tho
changing of tho character cf many cf
its streets. New York Journal.
HIS LONG SERVICE. ,

by Thomas II. Benton of Missouri, the
"thirty years senator." Mr. Benton
was u member of tiio senato 30 years
and 5 months, or from Oct. 2, 1820, to
March 3, 1851. John Sherman entered
tho senato in March, 1801, and has been
thero ever since, except during tho four
years that ho was secretary of tho treas
ury under President Hayes. Mr. Sher
man's actual service to date, as shown
by tho official records cf tho senate, is
as follows:
March 21, 1801, to March 8, 1S77
15 years, 11 months and 18 days. March

For manv mouths Miss Alice B. Schaf-

was brought home, as medical relief
was hopeless aud she had expressed a
wish to die at home.
After she had been at home for two
weeks Kev. C. II. Koch, a Methodist
evangelist from Ohio, began a series of
meetings at Mount Storm, and, hearing
cf Miss Schaffer's case, mentioned it
from fhe pulpit and asked tho silent
prayers of tho congregation tor five mm
utes for her relief. Miss Schaffer's sis
ter was at church, and on going home
asked tho invaliel how she felt. Sho
said she began to feel better nt 0

A HIDE TOR A LIFE.
i BICYLISTS SPEED SAVES A FOURTEEN-YEAR-OLD
GIRL
Bob MrCurdy of Philadelphia the flero.
He Scorched the Dlittance and Had m
Prescription In Pleven Minutes Inter
esting Incident of Tbankoglvlng Day,
A ride for life is an expression fre
quently heard, but seldom are tho inci
dents more interesting than in the story
of Bob McCurdy's wonderful ride from
Thirteenth and Tusker streets to Broad
and Chestnut streets, Philadelphia,
which was mado in just 11 minutes and
which was instrumental in saving the
life of a little girl and briugiug joy and
gladness to the hearts of a grief strick
en family.
About a month ago 14 -year-old Grace
Mcllenry, who lives with her parents at
1608 South Thirteenth street, was strick
en with typhoid fever. At first the at
tack was considered a slight ono, and
tho family bad littlo anxiety. But about
two weeks ago the diseaso took a turn
for tho worse, and ns flay by day tho
child sank lower tho hemo was filled
with sadness. Thanksgiving morning
found the Mcllenry household filled
with aiixinus tear, for tho attending
physician had prcnenineed tho caso al
most hopeless, lu thn afternoon a con
sultation was be lli, and thre-e doctors de
clared that tho child could not live over
night.
Robe rt McCurdy, better known among
bicycle racing men as Boh McCurfly,
boards at tho Mcllenry residence. On
Thanksgiving day, when ull tho rest had
given up hope, Bob said he bclioved, the
child could yet bo saved and thought he
knew the man that could save her. Aft
er supper ho put on his hat and called
in to wo a physician friend of his. He
told the physician that a consultation
had been held in the afternoon aud that
tho child was expected to dio that night,
but ho desired him to como around aud
prescribe for tho caso as a last resort.
The doctor walked quickly around to
the house, examined the 6iek child ; then
turning to McCurdy ho said: "Bob, I
think wo can nave Grace if this pre
scription is filled and brought back in
side of 20 minutes. It must bo put up
at cither of these two stores," and tho
doctor handed him the prescription and
the uams of two druggists in the vicin
ity of Broad and Chestnut streets.
Without stopping to make answer
McCurdy ran down stairs three steps at
a time, jumped on his wheel, which
was standing outside, aud sped away.
It was just 12 minutes to 8 by a watch
held in the hand of the sick child s
brother when Bob McCurdy jumped on
his wheel. Up Thirteenth street be flew,
out Dickinson nnd up Broad to Chestnut.
Glancing into the drug storo window,
ho saw that thero wero several custom
ers waiting, and, realizing that every
second was gold, ho sprang on his wheel
aud rodo to tho other store, a couplo of
blocks down Broad street.
Benching tho store, ho ran in, threw
down tho prescription uud a handful cf
coins nnd asked that tho potion bo put
up at once nt any cost. Three clerks
dropped tho work they wero engaged in
nnd turned in to fill tho prescription
which, if taken in timp, Svas to savo a
life. In almost less timo than it takes
to tell it tho precious prescription was
banded to McCurdy, with no extra charge
for tho haste, nu 1 the rider was scorch
ing down Broad street.
At South street a spe cial officer, who
was leisurelv riding his wheel, saw tho
scorcher anel started aftr r him. But ho
didn't know his man, for beforo tho of
ficcr had gono a square Bob was threo
squares in tho lend. It was just threo
minutes after 8 when McCurdy reached
tlx steps cf tho Mcllenry residence.
"Bravo old man, Bob!" said tho sick
child's brother, who was ftandingnt the
door, watch in hand. "You havo cov
creel tho distance in 11 minutes and, I
hope', 'saved our darliug.'s life." Aud
tho hopo was realized, for tho potion
which Bob had brought broke the fovcr,
tho child rallied, and last night the phy
sician said, "I have full confidence that
our Grace will live and soon bo well
and strong."
A touching incident connected with
tho child's sickness was tho thoughtful
ness of a number of her littlo girl
friends. They were to have a party
Thanksgiving evening, but lato Thurs
day afternoon, hearing that their friend
was going to die that night, they decid
ed to use tho money whfch they had col
lected for refreshments in buying flow
ers for Grace's funeral. But the brave
rider and the physician told them at 9
o'clock that their little friend would
live, so they got their sweets and spent
a real Thanksgiving eveuing.
Beb McCurdy is one of the best known
wheelmen on tho track. His team mate
is Charlie Church, and these two havo
won many a hot race in their timo. Lit

IT WAS GOOD WHISKY.
Bt BhMskborn nnd Carlisle Proved They
Were Judges of Flavor.
Joe C S. Blackburn and John G. Car
Male were some years ago visiting a
common friend at his summer residence.
The host had some old Kentucky whiEky
of which he was very proud, and- this
was, in his estimation, the richest treat
he could offer the Kentnckians. It lay in
bis cellars in the original package, and
as the Kentuckiaus had about finished
the pint which bad juot been drawn ou
be took occasion to say that the whisky
was 11) years old.
"Xo,"KiidMr. Carlislo; "that's very
good whisky, but it's only 17 years
old."
Mr. Blackburn said, "That's rik'ht,
Juhn, and it came from Buurbon cuvm-
ty, in my eld district. "
The host agreed that it was Buurbon
county whisky, but maintained that it
was 19 years eld and asked his visitors
fur a candid opinion cf its merits.
Blackburn tried another glass and said,
"I havo einly ono fault to find, and that
is a slight flavor cf rusty metal." Cue-
lisle filled' again aud said that, so far as
he was concerned, he was unablo to de
tect any flavor of metal, but that it did
taste a littlo leathery.
This criticism rather wrought on the
feelings of their host, who declared that
it was impossible that either leather or
metal could have come in contact with
tho goods, as they were still in tho
wood, and, ns for tho age, ho would
take them into tho cellar, whero they
could satisfy themselves on that score.
Into the cellar they went, and tho seals
showed that Mr. Carlislo's estimate of
their ago was correct. This the host con
fessed after an examination, but he re
fused to admit that there was any off
flavor to his pet brand. Tho Kentuckians
tasted ngain and were moro firmly set
in their opinions than before. Finally
tho host undertook to havo tho entire
package decanted off to settle tho dis
pute, and when the last dregs were
reached an old fashioned carpet tack,
with a leather washer, was found in the
bottom of the barrel. That of course
ended tho discussion, and tho host has
never since disputed tho word of a Ken
tuckian when ho was talking about
whisky. Cincinnati Tribune.
THE END OF MANKIND.
Scientist Who Uelleve That the Iranian
Kace Will Shrink Away.
There is a wholo tchool of European
scientists who belicvo that this world
will "como to an end," as far as man
kind are concerned, at about tho year
4000 A. D., ly the human raco tlcgcn
cratiug unt.l they finally disappear from
tho faco of the gleLo. French, Fugiifch
and German statisticians eif this school
have been studying tho military and
other recorel for proof cf tht ir unique
theories, and if their published accounts
aro reliablo they havo been surprisingly
eucccssfcl.
Tho records u?cd by both tho German
anel tho Frenchman cxte ud bad; nearly
400 years'. From these it is learned that
the average height cf continental Fu
ropciins in 1010 was 5 feet 9 inches. In
Ii'jO they had degenerated until tho
average was only 5 feet C inches anel HQ
years later, in 1820, it whs only 5 feet
6 inches. At tho present time it is only
5 fect 34 inches. It is cn eay matter
for expert statisticians to deduce from
the above figures facts that will prove a
regular and very rapid dccliuo in human
stature. Figuring in on opposite direc
tion, it is shown that the men of 6,000
years ago were giants, whose uverago
height was 10 feet and 9 inches. Com
ing down to our era it is shown that tb
average height of man was 9 feet, and
that in the lif th century there wero more
men that were over 7 feet high than
were less than 6.
But the most astonishing results of
this scientific story cf degeneration
como from the application of this law
of gradual diminution to the future. It
is shown that by the end of the year
8500 A. D. the stature of the average
man will be rednced to 15 Inches, and
that within less than COO years from
that date, or, say, about the year 4000,
mankind will have utterly disappeared
from the globe. St. Louis Republic.
