At noon, wbeu a man'6 stomach Is only beginning to rest from all this, he has a Ftvak, more potato, bread and but ter, coffee and pie, while at home his wife has a isllce of cold meat, a cup of tea and a piece of cake.

One of the ways in which the dose union of Trench family life shows it self Is the great affection of brothers for each other. There is an intimacy between them In good and evil fortune which oue does not find in other coun tries. A brother who takes a high po sition by his talents loses no opportuni ty to forward the Interests of one of lesser ability or of no ability. He never treats the latter as a drag on him, and perhaps scarcely feels that li is one. Married brothers often like to live In the Miiw house, oii'different floors, and to hire fkjjmmer villas in clos-o prox imity. Most of the famous Frenchmen whmi I knew bad e!c!i ;i brother to whom he was ilovoicd. I.cls - and Charles Tiljne, though so el!'? :mil.ir In uppe.-minre, tables, imposition, and married to voirrn who disliked each ot'ier. were, m .rally speaking'. Siamese twins until death severed the bond. The same might 1e said of the (larnlcr I'agvs, of Jules I'jivre and his brother Leon, of Ernest and Arthur Pica id. tf Puoeli. the sciilptor, and his brother the deputy. 1'aul and Hlppolyt-? i'lau drin. the painters, were known In their student days as the Siamese twins. It not infrequently happens that broth ers go Into literary partnership. In stances that occur to me are the b;i courts, the liosnys, the Marguei Utes It would be Impossible to discern tin work of cue of any of thoo brolku-s ioni that of another. What Is very curious, eae-h brothir, as in the cas" f Charles and Iouls Iilane, I'.rmv.t ani JLrthur I'Jcard, Jules ami l.eon I'aM'e, differed strikingly in every characteris tic from the other. The dissimilarity of the Marguerittes Is so grc-at that one wonders how brothers could be so un like. Alphonse Daudet was nut a bit like his brother Lrnest, an accom plliihcd novelist also.

The design of a long bridge rpan Is one of the most elaborate mathemat ical problems that arle in constructive work. The stresses produced by its own weight, by the weight of traffic, by locomotive drivers, by the hammer ing of flattened wheels, by the action of brakes on an express train, by the high .sjkhsI on a curveel track, by the wind and by the expansion nnd con traction of the steel in" summer and winter are all accurately calculated. The deflection of the loaded and un loadeel bridge Is determined, and com plete drawings are made of every mem ber of It. The bars of steel are tested In machines which will pull In two a horsehair or a steel bar strong enough to lift half a score of the heaviest lo comotive's at once, and which will crush an eggshell or a steel column, and accurately measure the Ftress In each cae. The different kinds of mem bers are forged, riveted, bored, or i plared In perhaps half a dozen remote shops, and. although usually not fitted tog ther there, are examined and nioas urod by specialists to see that they are correct, and are then shipped by scores of carloads to the site of the proposed structure, where' team derricks unload them and pile them many feet blub In sialics covering acres of ground. Ihe bridge piers may rise above the water hundreds of feet apart. It re I., .i . . ; ; jilace them on a thousand ton structure, high above a savage chasm, over an Impassable current or roaring tide, where the water Is deep, the bot tom of Jagged rocks or treacherous quicksand, or where an old bridge must be rem cd and the new one built in its place without interrupting trafile on the bridge. To accomplish this the engine r has timber, bolts and ropes, hoi.-tlng engines, derricks and a band of Intrepid builders who have perhaps followed him for years through more hardship and danger than fall to the lot of almost any other calling. The complicated framework of a great span Is a skeleton with many accurate Joints and thousands of steel sinews and bones, each of which must go In exactly the right place In exact ly the tight order. The builder must weave Into the truces pieces larger, heavier and far more Inflexible than whole tree trunks, swiftly hoist and swing them to place hundreds of feet high, fit together the. massive girders and huge forged bars with watrhmak cr's accuracy, suppert the unwieldy masses until they are keyed together and self sustaining, and under mil lions of pounds of stress must ndjur-t them at dizzy heights to mathematical lines. This he may need to do not de liberately, but in dangerous emergen cies, at utmost speed, putting forth his whole strength on narrow, springing planks In a furious tempest, in bitter cold or In blazing heut. He may be in the heart of an African desert, men aced by bloodthirsty fanatics, or In a gorge of the Andes, hundreds of miles from 'tool, or supplies, w he-re there Is absolutely no supplement to bis own resources.

St. John's college, Cambridge, are said to have a mixture of silver, but jf true this Is not believed by compe tent authorities to be the cause of their beautiful tone. This idea led to the story of the monk Tandlo concealing the silver given him by Charlemagne and castiug the bell In the monastery of St. Paul of Inferior metal, where upon he was struck by the dapper and killed. In the ninth century bells were tnade In France of Iron. They have been cast In steel, and the tone has been found nearly equal in fineness to that of the bell metal, but, having less vibration, was deficient In length, and thick glass bells have been made which give n beautiful sound, but are too brit tle to long withstand the strokes of the clapper.--(lent leman's Magazine.
