On May 1st the contractors finish ed the steel bridge across the Des Moines river, four miles west of Boone, and by May 10th trains will be running. The center span, which presents the most difficult engineer ing obstacle to be overcome of the entire structure, will be suspended over the main channel of the river at the height of one hundred and eighty-five feet from low water to the top of the rails on the bridge. It will sustain two trains each one one drawn by a seventy-fivy ton lo comotive running in opposite direc tions at a speed of fifty miles an hour. The length of the structure from bluff to bluff on either side of the river is twenty-six hundred and eighty-five feet, and is the longest and highest bridge in the world having a double track. When com pleted and ready for traffic there will be six thousand tons of steel in the structure, and it will have cost $000,000.00. It will shorten the dis tance from Boone to Ogden three miles and make a net saving of sev en miles of trackage between these two points. The Crop Bulletin. Diss MoiXJJS, April 29, 1001.

High five and crokinole were the games of the evening. These games are ones that are used so much tor the entertainment of young people, but seems to never grow old. Each time that they are played there seems to be a new charm—a new attraction or fascination about these games that sheds abroad a pleasure that beams out radiant 011 the faces of the participants. After the evening was well spent and the arrival of another day was drawing near, a dainty lunch was served. While partaking of this a number of papers were read by the members of the G. E. T. club.

Miss Nettie Sickles read a paper of the initiation of the members ad mitted into the club. This ordeal is very trying as you must pass by sharp obstacles and you do not know where you are going, as your eyes are blindfolded.

London, May 1.—The Leyland line deal provokes unusual discussion in 'the English papers, which reveals the ex istence of not a little apprehension as to the possibility of the United States dominating the Atlantic carrying trade. The general impression, however, is that the transfer is connected with the probable passage by the United States senate of a subsidy hill. It is consid ered that Ihe terms of the transfer are so profitable to the Leyland people that there could he 110 question of their acceptance and that other shipping companies would gladly sell on the same terms. Control of the Overland Route. New York, May 1.—The Evening Post, discussing Union Pacific affairs, says: "It is believed in Wall street today that the contest for control of the Union Pacific property, which has been for some time In progress, with a resultant advance of 27 points in the last two weeks, has been virtually ended by the success of one of the com peting bidders.

The bridegroom, apropos of nothing, began to talk about phrenology and told how his wife had discovered two very prominent bumps on the Jiack of his head. He was proud of thc-.n. So was she, and she passed him around that the host and hostess might feel the bumps and know of their exist ence. Then she explained: "My book on phrenology says that they mean good memory and generos ity." It was evident that she was proud of the facts, and so was he. But the host, being of an inquiring tnrn of mind, wished to satisfy himself, so he got down a phrenological work from one of his library shelves and after much labor found the bumps on the chart. Turning to the notes, he read, seriously, at first, then unsteadily. The bride be came suspicions, but she was game and said: "Read it out loud. Please do!" And the host read: "These bumps are most frequently found on cats and monkeys." Other topics consumed the remainder of the visit, which was brief.—New York Sun. Swells "With Swell Chests. "I had occasion to examine two brothers who had applied for policies in our company the other day," said the medical examiner of a life insur ance company. "One was 35 years old and the other was 33. They are both unmarried and are known about town as pretty gay boys. Usually there is considerable attached to writ ing policies for men who are known as 'rounders,' but these two proved to be perfect specimens of physical man hood. "I was particularly Impressed by their chest developments. They both had the same measurement and also the same expansion—from 39 to 43. When I found that they had smoked cigarettes from boyhood, I wondered all the more at the four inch expan sion. Then they told me that when they were youngsters they used to delight In seeing how long they could hold their breath under water. Every time they took a bath In the tub one would take a deep breath, duck under, and the other would time him with a watch. A minute and a half, I be lieve, was the limit of their endurance. They said it was all their mother could do to get them out of the bath and drive them to bed."—Philadelphia Rec ord. Iloth Expert In LIOBTIC. "Tom," said a father to bis son whose school report showed him to have been an idle young scamp, "what have you been studying this term?" "Logic, father," replied Tom. "I can prove you are not here now." "Indeed! How so?" "Well, you must be either at Rome or elsewhere?" "Certainly." "You are not at Rome?" "No." "Then you must be elsewhere." "Just so." "And if you are elsewhere you clear ly can't be here." For answer the father took up a cane that lay near and laid it smartly across his son's back. "Don't!" cried Tom. "You are hurt lug me." "Not at all. You have just proved conclusively that I am not here, so I can't be hurting you." Before his stern parent had quite done with him Tom felt that there must be after all a flaw somewhere in his logic.—London Tit-Bits. An Early Riser.

Rabelais, being out of money, once tricked the police into taking him from Marseilles to Paris on a charge of trea son. He made up some packages of brick dust and labeled tliem "Poison for the royal family." The officers took Rabelais 700 miles, only to be told at the end of their journey that it was April 1 and the affair was a hoax. Of course, as Rabelais was the priv ileged wit of the royal family, he was forgiven. Ilnd IVliat She Wimted. Papa—There, there! You needn't kiss me any more. Tell me what you want. Out with it.
