Bridge Building on a Large Scale. NEW STRUCTURE ACROSS THE MISSISSIPPI AT MEMPHIS. FOR USE OF RAILROAD. IMMENSE STONE PIERS ARE SUNK TO DEPTH OF 100 FEET BELOW SURFACE OF WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 13 March 1914

Bridge Building on a Large Scale. J NEW STRUCTURE ACROSS THE MISSISSIPPI AT MEMPHIS. FOR USE OF RAILROAD. IMMENSE STONE PIERS ARE SUNK TO DEPTH OF 100 FEET BELOW SURFACE OF WATER. The popular conception of what supports a great bridge liko the one being bult by the Rock Island lines across the Mississippi River at Memphis, io rather hazy. Tho parson- who crosses a bridge on a train does not sec the mas sive stone piers which rise from .the water. Evon if lie did see the pioi's ho would still have little idoa as to what it nil inoaus. Perhaps he imagines that tho piers go down through tho water to tho bottom of the river, where, by some mira culous means, they find a firm foundation. He little realises that what ho sees towering out of the water is only a 6uiall fraction of, the pier and that its foundation is one hundred feet below the surface resting on the strong bed stratum which underlies Memphis. .. Each of the big stone piers when, complete will support thousands of tons of st...

RIVAL BRIDGE SITES. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 13 March 1914

RIVAL BRIDGE SITES, j At the meeting of Bunmunkle Shire Council at Minyip, on Tuesday, Cr. Phillips introduced several deputa lioniots who desired to advocate rival sites for a projected ■_ bridge oyer Richardson River near Rich Avon. Mr. Camming contended that the ratepayers of the south riding had not bsen properly represented at the last meeting of the council. As. soon, as thi new weir was built by the Water Commission, the Richardson River would be uncrossable. The rales col lected in that vicinity warranted the expenditure by this council, even if they only received half the cost from Kara Kar.* Shire, but ibe W.iter Commission could he expected to pay one-third. Regarding the recent wots taken by the ratepayers ..over the rival routes, the Resetyh si:e was earned by a small majority—although opponents attended from near Rupanyup nud Muvtoa to vote against it, and they were not con cerned beyond blocking the proposal. He hope.d the council would look at the proposal in a Lir a...

CHAPTER VIII. AFTER SIX MONTHS. [Newspaper Article] — Dunmunkle Standard — 13 March 1914

CHAPTER VIII. AFTER SIX, MONTHS. It is September again. A year has passed since tbo mysterious white cruiser snatchcd Captain Paul Vol borth from the cargo steamer in tba Pacific ; six months huvc rolled by since that March day when Dick Val entine disappeared from London with out leaving a trace behind him. And Dick recalls these facts as he comes out of a shabby lodging-house on the south side of Washington-aquare iu the city of New York', and bends his steps towards Broadway. The history of those aix- months— the pass they had brought him to— was not written on Dick's outward appearance. He was neatly dressed, and well groomed, his linen was spotless, his boots and hat irrc- . proachablc. But his thoughts wcra black and bitter, and in his eyes was the hard, cynical look of one who has lost faith in human nature. It was a brief and commonplace story. With his careless temperament as ignorant ns a. child * of the pro saic trade of money-making, embit tcre-:! by the crushing blowB F...

It was from a London paper, nine months old, and it ran as fol lows : "An ocean mystery of tho past litis been strangely cleared up by the liml ing of r bottle on .the island of New Amsterdam, south of the Indian Ocean.

The amount of food necessary to maintain a dry cow in fair condition, fo that, she will nei ther Jose nor gain in weight, repre sents what Is call.cd her "mainten nnce requirement."

Fashion's Toll of Bird Life. ■? DANGER OF DISEASE IF SLAUGHTER GOES ON. • CRUEL PLUMAGE TRADE. Following the lead given by the Uuitoil States, a largo number of people • gathered at tho Whitehall Rooms to express their approval of a Bill intonded to prohibit the im portation into the United Kingdom of the skins and plumes of certain birds. Sir Harry Johnson, the famous traveller, who presided, said if there were no insects, ticks, molluscs, or worms, two-thirds of the world's diseases would come to uu end, and for the limitation of these pests there was no agency f.o potent as birds. If the normal protection of birds wero diminished, crops and orchards suffered. Farmers and frult-gr.6w.ers o*fu Southern England had complained of. the scarcity of swallows, due to the passion which prevailed in Italy and Franco* for the destruction of small birds.
