THE LONG BRIDGE.
The Long bridge across the Po
tomac is being demolished, a mod
ern steel structure having been
built to take its place. Originally
opened in 180 b, it has been con
nected with some of the most stir
ring events associated with the his
tory of the national capital. In the
war of 1812, in the civil war, in
times of peace, it has been a noted
landmark. It l'ek liie tread of thou
sands who marched across it to up
hold the flag when the Union was
threatened. It saw the frightened
hosts fleeing after Bull Run. It
welcomed the returning veterans as
they brought their victorious ban
ners to be borne pfoudly in the
grand review after four years of
fierce fighting. The words “Long
bridge” have found their place in
the history of the nation. No mod
ern structure will ever have any
sentiment connected with it. The
laborers who tear the old bridge
down are destroying one of the
landmarks of the nation. —Chicago
Frenchmen Ealk at Checks.
Frenchmen have never eared for
checks. They do not understand
them. A few days ago a French
journalist who had received a check
on a well known London bank show
ed it to me and asked me what he
ought to do with it.
“Has it any value?” he asked.
“Why, certainly,” I said. “You
simply indorse it on the hack, take
it to your hanker, and he will give
you the amount written on it.”
But lie seemed somewhat skepti
cal, and 1 could see that lie would
much have preferred a postal or
der. But at last a serious attempt
is to be made by parliament to teach
the Frenchman how to make use of
the check. Jt will, however, require
the sanction of a special law before
the masses will believe that there
is any real good in the system. It
is proposed to introduce the check
with the assistance of the postoffice
and to issue chegk hooks for a sum
not inferior to $20 —Paris Letter.
A Boar Water Finder.
In South Africa a cousin of Gen
eral Do Wet lias been performing
wonders in locating water. The
Doer had been steadily building up
a small fortune ns a water finder be
fore the. war broke out and ut the
outbreak of hostilities had on hand
an order respecting ten farms in
General Botha’s district. He fought
in the war and was taken prisoner
and deported. During his term of
captivity lie earned $1,500 in find
ing water for the British govern
ment. The medium employed is his
own secret, lie first tried all sorts
of twigs, but found none successful,
so lie set to work and built himself
a little contrivance of his own. It
is with this that he locates a spring.
To Keep W indows From Frosting.
The haberdasher sighed, for his
window, full of lovely neckties, was
•piite opaque with frost.
“I'd give a lot,” he sai'd. “for
some method to keep my window
from frosting over in cold weather."
“I’ll lot you have the method you
want for nothing,” said the patron.
“Coat the inside of your window
with glycerin, and it will keep as
clear in winter as in summer. I'm
a surveyor, and in my trade we al
ways use glycerin on our glass in
struments when it's cold."
A Costly Clock.
An astronomical wedding gift,
says the Weltall, has been presented
to King Alfonso of Spain by the
republic of Peru. It is an artistic
table clock designed by the French
sculptor Carrion Belleuse and is
held bv the muse of astronomy.
The zodiac, stars, figures, etc., are
made of lapis lazuli, g<id and pre
cious crystals. The clock received
the grand prix at the Paris exhibi
tion of 11)00 and cost $16,000.

How "Red” Wright Got Square on the
Red Wright was a man of quick
ind furious temper, while Jim Don
ovan was as calm and unemotional
a3 l;ts partner was violent.
The two prospectors were cooking
breakfast in their mountain camp
one morning when the coffeepot
happened to be Red’s particular
charge. The bacon, under Dono
van’s supervision, was almost done,
so Red set the coffeepot on the tire
for a final boil. One of the sticks
burned in two, and the pot upset.
Red flew into a rage, and, jumping
for the coffeepot, he kicked it from
one end of the camp to the other
and back again. Donovan watched
him with calm interest, and when
Red’s fury had expended itself Don
ovan pulled his sixshooter and filled
the coffeepot full of holes.
“By gracious, man!” cried Red.

do that for? We can’t make no

mine?” demanded Donovan as he
returned to his bacon. —Lippincott’s

Origin of Missouri'* Name.
An unknown exchange of the Al
bany Ledger observes: Few Missoip
rians know from what the state took
its name. The original tribe of In
dians which the word Missouri
was was “Onmossouries,”
which meant in Indian language
“dwellenw at the mouth of waters,”
as the teribe lived near the mouth of
the Missouri river. A number of
histories state that Missouri .means
“muddy,” which is erroneous.—
