It does not take an expert to determine that the Davis bridge IB a very unsatisfactory structure. Expert testimony, however, will show whether it is safe or not and in that question the public Is vitally Interested. Tbo bridge was constructed under a contract which was defective. The original specifications wore faulty and that was bad enough. The bridge company, however, "added" a few defects in an earnest endeavor to keep up with the procession. Oi Us acceptance nothing Mattering to the Auditor and Commissioners can be said. The bridge waa paid for almost in full before It was accepted. Why waa thia? When It was completed a competent engineer, Mr. Harry Colom&n, "was employed at the expense of $75 to examine the bridge. When bis report showed that the bridge was "light" and short and weak generally tha Commissioners threw the report in the waste basket and employed another 1 engineer who brought In a report so worded aa to appear contradictory to the Coleman report. The Pharos did not publish the Coleman report but showed ite knowledge of the matter by promising and afterwards* publishing the second report. VfPhy "all this trickery? The Journal wants the facts. It has arranged with one of the leading engineers In the United States for an examination and report on the bridge and this report and the name of the engineer, well known to the scientific world, will be made public. This gentleman baa made a specialty of bridge work for a good many yeais; he was employed by Mr. M, J. Becker. Chief Engineer of the Pan Handle. In the construction of the railroad bridge across the Ohio at Pittsburg; he do- signed the large cantilever bridge over tbe Ohio at Cincinnati; he was for three years Chief Engineer of on'e, of the largest bildge companies in the. United States; he U a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and of the Institution of Civil Engineers of Great Britain; he l» In every way experienced and competent to furnish the fact* and that is irhat the people want. STRAIGHTENING UP. Bab !Uke» Henelf Generally ITcefui Around the Horwe While the Storm 8age> Without. SpMlaJ Correspondence. NEW YOHK, March 8, 181M. If you are fominlno, which, to put it in the wonis of tha old writer, would mean, if by chance you are a woman, thtn su-oly there comos Into your life thoaort of a day when you are kept iadoors as closely as 11 you wore a thiof, and the house wore a jail. And, whenever tbiu stormy d»y comes around, somebody, some fetnt- clncjbody, invariably fugposts that everything should bo straightened up. "Straightening up" is a feminine phrase. It would only bb possible to the fomhilno mind. To straighten up to explain it fully, means to pull all your belongings to pieces, to linger over them, as the stage miser does over gold, and then to put all back In their places again. When my household is affected In this way, when the straightening up fever comes to it, I always drift to a chest of drawers that, because of lack ol time, or carolo-s ness, or what you will, is never quite u* tidy as it might be. In the top drawer, the ribbons are smoothed out, and put in their places; the handkerchiefs are laid In piles; the bits of jewelry put in their proper boxes, an'J once this is fixed all becomes easy, until the lo«o§t place of all is reached, and I hesitate over that. LIKE OPENING THE DOOR OF OSK3 HEART, And yet, even that must be done once in a while. Here goes, then. It doesn't look as if it held much, and It seems that if all the things therein vrero worn out. Close to the edge Is a white satin slipper, high of heel and with a rosette made of orange blossoms on the tip. Somebody wore that at a wedding—who was U? I turn around and look In tho mirror—surely not the woman I see there. The girl who wore that slipper and who danced so merrily thought all the days were sunshiney, all the world was love, and that she would danco through life to a joyful tune and never dream of sorrow or pain. And the woman who Is looking at It knows that the dancing days soon ended, that the rainy ones oame, but she can bo glad for one thing, and that IB though merriment eeemed to go, love and kindresj stood beside her like two good friends and made a bit of sunshine in the darkest weather. I wipe the little elipper off And put it back in its place, and I pick up an old-fashioned daguer. rotype. You have pictures just like this; ones whe r o, unless you hold it properly you simply see your own face reflected, but given the right light, there is the softened face of some one you remember. This one is the pio- gownand surrounded by a lot of men. I She is today the representative faah- f lonable wife, and the religion which j she claimed meant so much to her was j in reality nothing more than a surface disease which guon wore off. And Allle? Today the white snowflakes are falling ou the stono that has Allie's natix* carved on it. SHE DANCKl) INTO LOVE ONIi DAY. And then she became somebody's wife, and the made somebody very bnppy wilh her merry, laughing, lov infr ways, but another day and she was gone, and In her place, there was a sainted form thai bold a dead baby In Us arms I tear up the letter I have just, read; I despise the writer. Up in one corner are Innumborablo ribbons, pick and blue, and most en. ticing of all, brltht scarlet. I re- merobor when they used to tie long flaxen braids, but how the braids are pinned up closely about the head, and the ribbons are Impossible, and though life IB lull of good things, sill, tbote things are not tied up with the rosy ribbons o' girlhood. That'a an old prayer-book down there.

The Journal regrets that as it baa only forty-eight columns space will not permit the granting of this request. Had the Pharos asked for specifications as to Its truthful statements the request could have been granted in a few lipeg. The Pharos, however, need not be concerned about the lack of Journal space as the public Is already in full possession of the details. MEN in public life suffer enough from misutiderBtatdlngs and should not have their burden further in. creased by willful misrepresentation. The Journal does not care how much the Pharos attacks the Democratic council as long as it adheres to the truth. Tha Journal will Insist on fair play and outiide of this has no Interest In the Pharos attack on its Council. jture of a small girl who, rebelling at having to stand etlll. looks as fierce as if the whole world was to be fought by hfr. and the bird promised by the photographer would never appear. I can laugh over that photographer, and. so I can over the next. It ia a tintype of a whole party of girls bold- deaths or thote uno loved and there j io just room enough for a few more | a words—for the announcement of I another death. I wocaer when it will I come ' coma! I wonder who will remember and write It there, and I wonder most of all will this girl be afraid when Death does come. Somehow I don't think she will. Somehow it seems to me that having seen much of tho dark eide of life, having tried to do her best always, she has learned to look on God as a merciful judpe, as one who before He says one word of reprimand will remember ovcry temptation and will thick how, mentally and physically, the poor soul that comes before him, was weak. And it seems to me that He IB going to look at all the world in that way, and, knowing and believing that, I don't tblnk that girl will be afr .Id to di<\ BrGONE DAVS KECAU.Kb. It is possible one dr> ad may come to her, perhaps It will come to you. It is the being tho latt left the having to live when all that one loves bae gone; when the customs of tbo world have changed, and when standing alone, utterly alone, one prays for death and U doesn't come. I put the prayer book aside with some care. I would rather not think of that girl There are some old-faphionod lace handkerchiefs and an embroidered shawl, and in a fancifully carved box is a palm leaf. The Palm Sundays since that was blessed have been many in number. Yet, the leaf always tells the same story, year in and year oui; the story of great happiness to be think that wo will ha asked to choobe our times. You and I are prone to look upon him as an enemy, and yet to eo many of us ho is a pood friend. He throws over our taulta the mantle of charily, and makes those who aro alive remember UB only as kind and good and sweet. He saves us many a pain and ache, acd it Is wrong to look on him aa a foe. You can always be sure that, in time, you will eee why be did enter your household when there was apparently no reason for It. Bo euro that If ho took that little one It was bo- cause be wished to save it boart and body hurts. You may bo sure tbst if he took a fine, handsome boy of youre, ho took him now while he was credit to you, and not leave hire to be- as was possible, a grief and a distress. Sometimes one cannot understand death. It seeing most dreadful when ho takes away tbe mother of tbo household, snd the little children suffer, and the father is lonely. When I see the mother RO, I always look at the father, and, oh! so raaoy times I think the grief ho shows is not puro loving grief, but that tinged with remorse. While she was ft 1 [re she was willing and eo loving, find he eo sol fish and HO thoughtless. He never knew, until she was gone, all that aha meant to him, and he never relallzed how cruely be had made those eyes 811 with tears. Yes, man, weep for the mother of the household, and with every tear you ghed I hope there will come up before you the thought Of what you might have been and what you are. IN DEATH'S EMBRACE- Death cornea into your house and into mine and takes away thoss we love befit, and then some one site down and talks theology to u» and adds to our grief by asking UB Buoh quego tlona as, '00 you think the dead see you?" I hope they don't. I don't know THK tariff bill continues to cause dUsatlsfaction. Hie not protective enough to be a protective measure and it Is too protective to be free trade.

Under it is another one of a young girl and a young boy, each looking ae conscious aa possible, and I discover by close examination that the small girl fcas borrowed a pair ol earrings and bad them tied on. APLDLANGSi'NK. I throw tbe pictures down and pick up a box—my first valentine. It Is a gorgeous combination of lace paper and colored /lowers, while in tbe centre, in lovely pink letters, are the words "Ever true." Yes, the poor little ohap that sent that was true, true for a year and a day. It )s impossible for me to get sentimental about him because I bad an invitation tbe other day to his daughter's wedding. I think I will give that valen. tine. away, some of his children might like it. Nobody likes.to keep an evidence of even * boy's unfaithfulness The heart of woman is BO beautifully unselfish that she wants everything: masculine to love her and love her forever, and she must be privileged to love one and for just a little while. There is a bunch of .letters come next, letters that are tied up with a pink corset lace. I read two or three over, and I find myself wondering about tbe people who are spoken of. One sentence reads: "Allle danced all night, and it was nearly seven o'clock when the got home. Mother says she hope* none of our boy« will take a fancy to her as she is entirely too worldly. For my own part, I find no pleasure outside of my religion; it seems to fill up my life and I am more than annoyed when, for mere household duties, I am forced to give up my hours of reading ar praying. After all, there are very few glrl» who are, as mother says, like me." Isn't that the conceit of youth? And between you and me, how very offensive that young saint mast hare been, What became of' her? Do you want to know? I »aw her at the Optra the rT,-j ~i~ other evening in an extremely low I usea ^ hoped for acd of -joy in tbe present, joy over some sin that has been over come, joy at the triumphal procession that goes to meet tho King of Kings. I almost wish I hadn't' helped to straighten up. I come away from tbe old chest of drawers, and I look at the girl who is straightening tbe books. Her head is burled in her arms, and I go away. A little poem has brought back something of the past to her, and she is living it over again. I walk quietly Into the dining room, 'where tomobody else is fixing up the old silver, and that somebody el«e is try- log to look steadily at a baby's Christmas cup. And I wonder why His that we women find a certain sad pleasure in bringing up tbe past, seeing it as it was, and aa we were and comparing all with the present. Sometimes it does us good. It does every woman good to remember what a great amount of belief «he had once, and to try and bring back that belief again. It does every woman good to think of the mistakes she has made, eo that in the future she may bo more careful. And I think, my friend, it does us all good unce in a while to realize- that this life doesn't mean forever. I don't think we ought to walk around expecting to meet death every minute, that we at ould elect by con. tlnual reference to be, *o to say, «OWNED IK OUR GRAVE CLOTHES. But we ought to be brave enough not to be afraid to meet Death when he oome's. He is so certain. And not one «f us knows bow we will meet him; whether at a friend coming to tree ui from pain, • or as an enemy coming to take us from joy. I do not wheiher they do or not; but I hope most earnestly they don't see any of tbe sorrow that comes to tbe people they love, for if they did. surely heaven wo'ild not be heaven to them. fuf' phiees wero found wl'it'i-ti the Indian reminds h:tri fallen down from the lo;tixi surface of the bluff tops and hid nu'n- gfiefl with the i'omnins of :ui earlier avre. linrviirliiiit 'liKCovu.rU'.s were made in the Lookout ami Xickajac'u c^ves. ucur Kmwville, Ti-nn.
