With 'them holding the cott' tract, the county is sure to get a good bridge. The company was represented here'by Mr. Kllmar of Des Moibes, a classmate of C. B. Matson, The specifications call for a superstructure of the very latest design that will carry a much heavier load than will ever be placed on it. It will be a 100 foot span bridge with a roadway 16 feet wide, and will be 14 feet above low water, in the clear. The bridge will be supported in a way entirely new to this locality. At each corner are driven three oak piles. Over these a steel caisson is placed and settled well down into the earth, A mixture of sand, broken stone and Portland cement is then packed in around the piles, completely filling the caisson. In a few hours this sets as hard as rock, binding the piles, concrete and steel casing into one solid mass. Piers constructed in this manner have been known to withstand floods that have carried away massive piers of solid masonry. . • . . .. FEBBOKAL MOYEMENTa. Mrs. A.
