A Woolly Foundation. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 16 February 1894

A Wolly Foundatior, In digging the fou? 'tion of the lational PileBridge, liohmond, U.S., the workmen suddenly struck an apparently bottomless bed of quink sand. At first it seemed probable that the work would have tobeabindoned. Finally, however, the engineer hit upon a novel expedient for overuoming the difficulty. He sent out men to ocour the land farand wide for wool. Every bale that could be ob. tained was bought up. It was emptiedinto the fathomless pit intended for the founda tion. When oressure was first applied it sank, but after a time it couldbe forced no further down. Then rocks were laid upon the wool on which the western end of this great bridge of Richmond still findsitssup. port.

Physiologists are agreed, and ordinary obhervation supports the opinion, that man does not possess a single sense which is tho roughly reliable. The sense of sight, ap parently the most trustworthy, is really toe sense most readily deceived. The eye is sub. ject to "after sensation"-that is, sensation lasting longer than the stimulus producing it, resulting in a second and possibly distorted image of the object seen. It is also liable to asubjective sensations," whence we heve phantasmagoria, "color-blindness," and various other hallucinations and illuslons. The sense of hearing, suabject also to the influence of "after-sensation" and " sub jeotive-sensation," is likewise too apt to be affected by outside influences, and be deceived in distance, toneand cause. Taste and smell are acknowledgedly not reliable, even when combined. That the sense of feel ing is equally unreliable requires but small oroof. Cross the third and ...

My lady moth is rather fastidious with , preferring fine goods to those of more ordinary quality, and luxuriates in the choicest oashmeres and most costly sables.
