THE TRUTH. Monday Evening, June 13, 1887. A 11 RAVE GIRL'S PERIL. She Hangs by Her Haud from a Rail- road Bridge. Baltimore, Md., June 11.—Annie Langstriun, of Cecil county, this State, was until a week ago only an ordinary country girl, not even blessed with good looks, but now she is a heroine. The Baltimore and Ohio railroad's new bridge across the Susquehanna river is, next to the Brooklyn bridge, the highest and largest in the United States. The central span over the channel of the river is 140 feet high, and permits of the passage of large vessels under it. There is no foot-path over it only the railroad ties, but they are close enough together to prevent the walker from becoming giddy or losing balance. Few persons have attempted to cross the bridge, as it is one mile and an eighth long, and there is constant danger of encountering a railroad train on the single track. A few days ago Annie Langstrum and several of her girl companions were picnicking near the Cecil county end ...

Why Is it that the University of Virginia, the Military Institute, and Blacksburg College can receive liberal appropriations from the Legislature, and Richmond receive nothing, although this city pays about one-flfth of the taxes of the State?

THE TRUTH. WednESDAY Evening, JUNE 15, 1887. fioatTng Garden^ Abbe Clavigero, in his History of Mexico says that when the Mexicans were brought under subjection to the Colhuan and Tapanecan nations and confined to the miserable little islands on the Lake of Mexico, they had no land to cultivate until necessity compelled them to form movable fields and gardens, which floated on the waters of the lake. The method which they adopted to make these, and which they Still practise, is extremely simple. They plat and twist together willows and roots marsh plants, or other material, which are light, but capable of supporting the earth firmly united. Upon this foundation they lay the light bushes which float on the lake and over all the mud and dirt which they drew up from the bottom. Their regular figure is quadrangular; their length and breadth various ; but generallv they are about eight perches long, and not more than three in breadth, and have less than a foot of elevation above the surf...

The mode of procedure in " Carrying the Cfeel " In the village of Galashiels was as follows, says All the Year Round: Early in the day after the marriage those interested in the proceedings assembled at the house of the newly-wedded couple, bringing with them a " creel" or basket, whicli they filled with stones. The young husband on being brought to the door had the creel firmly fixed to his back, and with it in this position had to run the round of the town, or at least the chief portion of it, followed by a number of men to see that he did not drop his burden; the only condition on which he was allowed to do so being that his wife should come after him and kiss him. As relief depended altogether upon the wife, it would sometimes happen that the husband did not need to run more than a few yards, but when she was more than ordinarily bashful, or wished to...
