The popular conception of what supports a great bridge liko tbo one being bull. by the Uock Island lines across the Mississippi River at Memphis, ia rather hazy. The person who crosses a bridge on a train does not sec the mas sive stone piers which rise from the water. Kvon if he did see the piers he would still have little idea as to what it all means. l'erhops ho imagines that the piers go down through the water to the bottom of the river, where, by some mira culous means, they find a firm foundation. He little realises that what he sees lowering out of the water is only a small fraction of the pier and that its foundation is one hundred feet below the surface resting on the strong bed stratum which underlies Memphis.

How Do You Walk. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 13 March 1914

How Do You Walk. lVwi\ro of the man wlu» carries bin loft foot in tiiwiirds his right when walking, giving an impression that, his right foot turns out and his left turns in. Mo is probably a natural, petty larcenist, and of a kleptomaniac imtnre. The man of short, nervous step is always a business mtui of energy, but if the stride is only from the knees he is cold and selfish, caring lor nobody but. himself. A long stride indicates energy. but of an erratic Kind. While a good fellow, the man with the long stride is generally unreliable and ill-balan ced. Great statesmen arid great philan thropists always have a b io.se, shambling gait, which comes from thinking about others more than themselves. Likewise the man who saunters is not ahvavs a dreamer, but a man with a keen, active brain, who is always thinking. Flat-footed people arc usually good-natured. Amongst the weaker s x particularly flat feet indicate a sympathetic, kindly nature, where as the girl with the pronounced arched ...
