A CHEAP SUSPENSION BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
A CHEAP SUSPENSION BRIDGE. In 'many places where short foot-bridges may be required over small streams they may bo very cheaply constructed of fence-wire with narrow foot-boards, in the manner shown in the accompanying illustrations. The supports for the wires are made by fining a timber firmly to posts set in the ground. Five or six fence wires, No. 9 or 10 gauge, are stretched across the stream and the ends fastened securely to the timbers. Hand wires are stretohed from, side to side and fastened to posts or stakes, being carried over their tops, by which they are raised to the proper height. This is shown at Fig. 1. The foot-boards are fastened to the' wires by staples, Fig. 2. It is not advisable to stretch the wires too tightly, as when 'the tension is very great a sudden jar may snap the wire ; they should be left at a quite pre ceptible curve. The lower outside may be connected with the upper wires by short ones placed a few feet apart. Fig. 1. Wibk Suspension Bridge. Fig. 2....

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. The hot weather which succeeded the re freshing showers has absorbed nearly all the moisture from the ground, and the result is that the wheat crops are suffering to a very great extent. In many places before the heat set in the plants were not more than a foot high ; and here the crops aro changing color before the ears have blossomed. In other dis tricts, where the wheat is more forward, it is aUo beginning to assume the golden tint, and in the upper north mowers are busy at work cutting as much crop as iB possible before it is too late. 'At Arden Vale and Richman's Valley,' said Mr. R. W. Foster, M.P., during the course of a brief interview, 'hay harvesting is in full swing and the haycuts are going from one to two tons to the acre; in exceptional places on fallow ground the early wheat crops are also filling out well, and in favored places it is expected that late crops will yield from C to 8 bushels if half an inch of rain falls before harvesting time.

Legislative Councillors smiled a little and thought more when the Chief Secretary an nounced on Tuesday— ' Sir, on the nest day of sitting I will move that the Public Salaries Bill be now read a third time.' the idea evidently being that by agreeing to raise the exemption the Government may be able to get the measure through.
