An engineer named Knorr, a German
who has become a naturalized Russian,
built four of the great bridges on the
Trans-Siberian railway, including the
big Yenisei and Obi bridges, which cost,
respectively, $3,350,000 and $2,000,000.
They were great engineering feats, and
brought him international lame in his
profession. But he was pursued by a
curious fatality. A writer in "T. A. T."
says: He had five daughters, who were
famous in Russia for their beauty, and
whom he loved dearly. Just after his
first bridge was completed one of them
died; and as each of his three succeeding
bridges was built, another died. He
would not build a fifth bridge.
