London World. WEST POINT'S HISTORIC CHAIN. Once It Weighed 180 Ton and Waa 1.00O Feet Lung. No visitor to West Point falls to notice tho few links of tho Iron chain that llo around tho monument up near the hotel. They lire tho remains of the great chain which was stretched across tho Iludsou river during tho Revolution to prevent British warships from Milling past tho forts and landing an army or marauding partlos. Few people know that just above tho entranco to Tuxedo park, on the wist side of tho railroad track, are the ruins of tho building In which that chain was made. They are known as the old Augusta forgo. Tho western gable and tho south wall aro all that aro standing. It was never anything but a low stouo building, a few fee i, square, and built by a country mason. It was called a forgo bocuuso thero iron was reduced from the ore by tho old fashioned charcoal method, and its coun terparts were common all over tho country within tho last half century. It was owned by the Sterling Iron Mine company, ono of the largo loin manufacturers of tho day. Hero was reduced tho iron taken from tho ml no, four miles west, and the links wcro hammered out by hand. When it became apparent to the conti nental war department that a chain was necessary to prevent vessels going above tho neutral ground, Secretary Pickering consulted Mr. Townscud, ono of the iron kings of tho day and an owner of tho mine, and shortly after General Putnam gave an order for tho chain. In less than six weeks tho links were delivered to the army engi neer at New Wlnsor, just west of New burg, ready to put together. Tho carting was done by tho neighboring farmers with their ox teams. The links wero 2 feet long and 2li inches square, each weighing about 150 pounds. When put together, tho chain had a swivel at every hundred feet. It was about 1,600 feet long and weighed 180 tons. It was buoyed up by 10 foot logs, pointed at each end, so us to offer as llttlo resistance to the tides as possible. It was put in ploco in 1778. Tho part which is preserved was fished up from tho bottom of tho river in 1855, but the greater part was sold for old Iron to tho West Point foundry, years before. New York Press. Sensitive Hcaus of Her Agw. Many persons show so strange a sensi tiveness to the question of ago that their friends may well avoid tho entire subject. When Mrs. S. C J lull was ut least 70 years old, sho met ut a reception a young clergy man who was apjMirently delighted to see her. "Mrs. Hall," said he, "I rememlier read ing your Ihsiks when I was a child, and that I was especially charmed by tho Irish stories." Then, sir," Unshed Mrs. Hall, "if you read my ixioks when you wero a child, you ought to know better than to say so." The mother of Julia Kuvanaugh was a woman of great Intellectual power and un usual force of character, but even when she was 80 years old she was ashamed of her age. Ono day she went with her French maid to tho cemetery at Nice to visit tho tomb sho had erected to her daughter. Tho two wero standing before tho stono when tho maid innocently read tho Inscription. Ju lia Kavanaugh had then been dead seven years, and her age, 64, was of course re corded. "Madam must be very old," remarked the maid. "Old!" exclaimed Mrs. Kavanaugh. "Why should 1 bo old? What do you know about my age'" "Mademoiselle was 64 when sho died, " continued the girl, "and she has been dead some time. Therefore madam must 1m) very old." Mrs. Kavanaugh said nothing, but next day sho sent a mason to tho cemetery ami had tho telltale llguros removed. Youth's Compuulon.
