There wan an exciting timo anioug
tho spectators at Iho lacrosse match ou
the School Grounds Tuesday evening.
The giiinii was between tho Argonauts
II., .nd tho Juuior Maple Leafs resulting in a victory for the local -pain by a
score of 4 to I). The time-keeper for tho
Argonauts counted a couple of scores
for ids toiiui which were not
visible to the spectators, and
then tho trouble began. It is claimed
by iiiaiiy that tho Argonauts only got
2 goals, aud that 2 goals should have
beeu scored agniust them for beiug
thirty minutes into. The fooling of
disapproval expressed by the grown
peoplo was takou up by tbo boys in the
crowd nnd they acted uncivilly.
The "News-Advertiser" contnined
Wednesday moruiug, tho following;
"After tho gaino the visiting team wub
gallantly escorted awny from the
grounds by a gang of hoodlums to the
nceompnninicut of nnsavory epithets,
and showers of stones." This is
much overdrawu by tho."N-A.," reporter, but it must bo , admitted the
small hoys showed themselves off to
disadvantage The best team won for
tho game wns a fast oue, and the local
team kept tho ball around the Argonauts not most of the timo. As all tho
Junior Maple Leaf players played it is
hard to single out many who played
better than ihc rest, though the playing
of Hugh Roc, Ernest Murray aud Lcn
Martin hits been praised highly.

A shot rang out keen ami clear, there

varying Intervals cut the night air from

that Long Hair afterward became an
important character lu the stirring
historical drama which had old Viu-
comics for ils center of energy.
Keho de llonville probably felt himself In hud luck when he arrived nt the
river house just too late to share In
(he liquor or to Join In chasing the
bold thief. He listened with Interest,
however, lo the story of Long Hair's
capture of the couimaiidunt's demijohn
and could not refrain from saying that
If he hnd been present there would
have been n quite different result.
"1 would have shot blm before he

heavy lllntlock pistol and going
through the motions of one alining
quickly und tiring. Indeed, so vigorously In earliest was he with the pantomime Hint he actually did lire, unintentionally of course, the ball burying
Itself lu the doorjaiub.
Ho was laughed at b.v those present
for being more excited than they who
witnessed the whole thing. One of
them, a leathery faced and grizzled old
sinner, leered nt him contemptuously
and said In queer French, with a
curious accent caught from long use
of backwoods English:
"Listen how the boy brags! Ye
might think to hear Rene talk tbat
he actually amounted to a big pile."
This personage was known to every
soul In Vlncennes ns Onclc Jazon. and
when Otiele .Itizon spoke tbe whole
town felt bound to listen.
"An1 how well he shoots, too." he
ndded, with nn Intolerable wink.
"Aimed nt tbe door and hit the post.
Certainly Long. Hair would hnve been
in great danger! Oh, yes, he'd 'ave
killed Long Hair at the first shot,
wouldn't he though!"
"All right. Onclc Jazon." said Rene,
laughing and blowing the smoke out
of Ills pistol. " 'Twns you. all the snme,
who let Long Hair trot off with the
governor's brandy: not I. If you cotild
have hit even a doorpost lt might have
been better."
Onclc Jazon took off his cap nnd

the Roussillon place, which was at III.
heuil of a narrow street laid out In n
direction at right angles lo the river's
course. Ho passed two or three diminutive cabins, all as much alike as beehives.
As Rene passed along he spoke with
a gay French freedom to the dames
and hisses who chanced to be visible.
His air would be regarded as violently
brigandish in our dny. , We might
even go so far ns to think his whole
appearance comical, His jnunty cap,
with a tail thut wnggeil US be walked;
his short trousers anil lege.ings of buck
skin und his loose shirtlike tuuie, drawn
In at the waist with a broad belt, gave
his strong figure just the dash of wild,
ness' suited to the armament with
which it wns weighted. A henvy gun
lay Ih the hollow of his shoulder, under which hung an otter skin bullet
pouch with its cigar powder horn and
white bone charger. In his belt wen-

Indian of the name ol' Long Hair hnd

It was not un uncommon thing lor an
Indian to steal what he wauled, nml in
most cases light punishment followed

else to rape a demijohn of line brandy,
especially oue sent as a present b.v a
friend In New Orleans to Lieutenant
Governor Abbott, who hnd unlil recently been the eomniaiiilnnt of tlio
post. Every man at the river house
recognized and resented the enormity
of Long Hair's crime, and each wus fur
the moment ready to he his Judge nnd
Ills executioner. He hnd broken itt
once every rule or frontier etiquette nnd
every bond of sympathy. Nor wns
l.oiu£ Hair Ignorant of Ihe danger Involved In his daring enterprise. He
had tieforchnml carefully und stolidly

Indian nature bail concluded thut a Utile wicker covered bottle of lininily
wns well worth tlie risk of his life. So
lie hnd put himself iu condition for a
great race b.v slipping out ami getting
rid of his weapons and .all surplus
weight of clothes.
This Incident brought the drinking
bout at the river bouse to n sudden
Aid, but nothing further came of it
tliat,nlglit ami no record of It would be
found lu these pages but for the fact
there would be any particular reason
why 1 Bhould wait for an Indian thief
to go and arm himself before I uc-

Onule Juzon lifted n band Involuntarily and rubbed his scalpless crown;
then 4ie chuckled with a grotesque
grimace ns if the rccollectiou of having his bend skinned were the funniest
thing imaginable.
"When you've killed as muny of 'cm
as Oucle Jazon has," remarked a bystander to Rene, "you'll uot be so
hungry for blood, maybe."
"-.specially after ye've took fifty-nine
scalps to puy for yer one." added Oucle
Jazon, replacing his cap over the hairless area of his crown.
The men who had been chasing Long
Hair presently came straggling back
with their stories—ench hud a distinct
one—of how the fugitive escaped. They
were wild looking fellows, most of
then, somewhat Intoxicated, all profusely liberal with their stock of picturesque profanity. They represented
the- roughest element of the well nigh
lawless post.

"Well, tomorrow we'll get hlin," snld
another. "Yon und I and Jacques,

Nobody's ever got even with 'lm yet.
Thnt's so, ain't It? Just ask Undo
Jazon. If you don't believe it!"
The next morning Long Hnlr was
trucked lo the river's edge. He bud
liecn wounded, but whether seriously
or not could only bo conjeel tired. A
sprinkle of blood, here and there quite
a dash of It, reddened the grass and
clumps of weeds ho hnd run through,
nml elided close to Ibe water, Into
which II looked us if he hnd plunged
wilh a view to bulMlng pursuit. Indeed pursuit wns baffled. No further
trace could be found b.v which lo follow the cunning fugitive. Rome of Ihc
men eynsolcd themselves by Baying,
wilhoiit believing, thut Long Hair
wns probably lying drowned at the bottom of tlie river.

It finnlly transpired that Oncle Jazon
wns partly right and partly wrong.
Long Ilnir was alive, even ns a fat
cut perhaps, hut not drunk, for iu trying lo swim with the rotund little

"Ho wus shot, np doubt of II," he
went oh. "and Is now being nibbled by

Strangely  enough, It  happened that
at the very time of this chat between I
Mme. Roussillon nud Rene, Alice wns j
bandaging  Long   Hair's   wounded   log
with strips of her apron.   11 was under
some willows which overhung the bank
of  a  narrow  aud  shallow   lagoon  or j
slough, which In those dnys extended
u  mile or two buck into the country
or the further side of the liver.   Alice i

They landed ut a convenient spot some
distance up the little lagoon, made the
boat fast b.v dragging Ils prow high
ashore, and were on (he point of setting
out across a neck of wet, grassy hind
to Ihe pond, when a  deep grunt, not
unlike that of a self satisfied pig, attracted  them   to  the  willows,   where
they   discovered    Long   Ilnir,   badly

enough and quite uccustomed to startling experiences, uttered a cry when
she saw those snaJcy eyes glistening so
snvagely nmid the'shadows. But Jean
wns quick to recognize Long Hnlr. He
liuil often seen blm about towu, a figure
uot to be forgotten.
"They've been hunting him everywhere," he snld In a hnlf whisper to
Alice, clutching the skirt of her dress.
"It's Long Hair, the Indiau wbo stole
the brandy, I know him."
Alice recoiled a pace or two. '
"Let's go back nnd tell 'em," Jean
added, still whispering. "They want to
kill him; Oucle JaZon said so. Come
He gave her dress a jerk, but she
did not move any further back. She
wns looking at the blood oozing from a
wound in the Indian's leg.
"He Is shot; he ls hurt, Jean; we
must help blm," she presently Bald, recovering ber self control, yet still pale.
"We must get blm out of that had
Jean caught Alice's merciful spirit
with sympathetic readiness and
showed Immediate willingness to aid
It wns a difficult thing to do, but
there was a Will and of course a way.
They had knives with which they cut
willows to mnke n standing place ou
the mud. While tliey were doing this
they spoke friendly words to Long
Ilnir, who understood French a little,
and nt lust they got hold of his arms,
tugged, rested, tugged again and finally
managed lo help Tilin fo a dry place,

lie more at ease, .lean carried water
In his cap with .which they washed the
wound and the stolid savage face.
Then Ailec tore up her cotton apron, In
whleh she had hoped to bear home a
load of lilies, and with the strips bound
the"wound very neatly. It took a long
time, during which the Indian remained
silent arid npparently quite Indifferent
Long Hair was a man of superior
physique, tall, straight, with tbe muscles of a Vulcan, and -while he lay
stretched on the ground, hnlf clud and
motionless, be would hnve been a
grand model for a heroic figure In
bronze. Yet from every lineament
thero enme a strange repelling Influence, like thut from n snake. Alice felt
almost unbearable disgust while doing
her merciful task, but she bravely persevered until It was finished.
It wns now lute in the afternoon and
the sun would be setting before they
conld reach home.
"We must hurry back, Jean," Alice
said, turning lo depart "It will be
all we enn do to reach the other side
In daylight. I'm thinking that they'll
be out hunting for us, too, if we don't
move right lively.    Come."
She guve the Indian nnother glance
when she hnd taken but a step. He
grunted nnd held up something in his
hand—something that shone with a
dull yellow light. It was r small,
oval, gold locket which she had always worn in her bosom. She sprang
and snatched it from his palm.
"Thank you," she exclaimed, smiling
gratefully. "I nm so glad you found
The chain by whleh the locket had
hung was broken, doubtless by some
movement while drugging Long Hair
out of the mud, und the Ud had
sprung open, exposing a miniature portrait of Alice painted when she was a
little child, probably not two years old.
It wus a sweet baby face, archly
bright almOst surrounded with a fluff
of golden hair. The neck and upper
line of the plump shoulders, with ■
(race of richly delicate lace and a
string of pearls, gave somehow a suggestion of patrician daintiness.
Long Hnir looked keenly Into Alice's
eyes   when   she   stooped   to   take  the
loekdt from his hand, hut Bald nothing.
She and Jean now hurried away, and,
so   vigorously   did   they  paddle   their
pirogue, that the sky was yet red In
the west when they reached home and
duly received their expected scolding
from Mme. Roussillon.
Alice sealed Jean's lips as to their
dventure, for she hnd made up her
ulnd to Bave Long Hair if possible,
nnd she felt sure thnt the only way to
do It would be to trust no one but
Father Reret
It turned out thnt Long Hair's wound
was neither a broken bone nor a cut
artery; The flesh of his leg, midway
between the hip and the knee, was
pierced. The bullet bad bored a neat
hole elenn through. Fnther Beret took
(he ense in baud and with no little
surgical skill proceeded to set the big
Indian upon his feet again. The affair
had to be cleverly managed. Food,
medicines nnd clothing were surreptl- I
tlously borne across the river, a bed of
grass was kept fresh under Long Hair's
back, his wound was regularly dressed
nnd finnlly his weapons—a tomahawk,
n knife, a strong bow nnd a quiver of
arrows—which ho hnd bidden on the
night of his bold theft, were brought to
blm. i
"Now go and sin no more," said good
Father Beret, but bo well knew thnt hit
words were mere puffs of articulate
wind In the ear of the grim and silent
savage, who limped nway with an air
of stntely dignity Into tho wilderness,    i
A loud fell from Alice's mind when
Fnther Beret Informed her of Long
Ilnlr's recovery mid departure. Day
nnd night the dread lest some of the
men should find out his hiding place
mid kill hlin had depressed and worried
her. Long Hair's Imperturbable calm- ,
ness. his stolid, Immobile countenance,
the mysterious reptlllnn gleam of hia
shifty black eyes and the soulless expression nlways lurking In them kept ,
a fnsclnntlng hold on the girl's memory.
They blended curiously with the Impressions left by the romances she had
read In M. Rousslllon's mildewed books.
Long Hair was not a young man, but
lt would have been impossible to guess
near his age. His form and face slm- i
ply showed long experience and lm- I
mensurable vigor. Alice remembered
with a shuddering sensation the look
he gave her when she took the locket
from his band. It wns of'but a second's duration, yet It seemed to search

be made by the judge before whom he

happen to hear what bad been said.
Ou oue occasion be was appearing before a master of the rolls, who thought
that MiicMuhon was arguing ratber

'You ure speaking as lf I were a mere

so, my lord,' said counsel airily, proceeding wltb his argument, oblivious
to and regardless of what tbe Judge

The chemical effects of the different

ultra violet rays have a most powerful
chemical action. This fact explains why
materials which are usually worn at

A Peculiar Method of Ilni'lciilnlnR Foi
th. Preclou. Stone..
The peculiar business methods of orl-
, cntnl merchants are Illustrated by the
manner of buying rubies In Burma. In
the examination of rubles artificial
light ls not used, tbe merchants hold-
lug that full sunlight alone can bring
out the color and brilliancy, of tbe
ueins. Sales must therefore take place
between 9 a. m. and 3 p.. in., and the
, nicy must be clear.
The purchaser, placed I near a w!n-
1 dow, has before blm a large copper
I plate. Tbe sellers come to blm oue by
> one,.and each empties upon this plate
his little bag of rubies. The purchaser
proceeds to arrange them for valuation
lu a number of small heaps. I'he Hist
division iB Into three grades, according to size. Each of these groups Is
ngnln divided Into three plies, according to color, and each of these piles In
turn ls again divided into three groups,
according to sluipe. The bright copper
plate has a curious use. The sunlight
reflected from It through the stones
brings out with true rubies a color effect different from thut with red spl-
ncls nnd tourmalines, which are thus
easily scpnrnted.
'The buyer nnd seller then go through
•{very peculiar method of bargaining
by signs, or, rather, grips, In perfect silence. After agreeing upon the fairness of the classlllcntion they join their
right hands, covered with a hiinilker-
chlef or the flap of a garment, und by
grips and pressures mutually understood among all these dealers they
make, modify and accept pruposnls of
purchase and sale. The hands are then
uncovered and the prices are recorded.

"Roses hnve thorns" and "Walls have
ears" are as common in the Japanese
speech aa In our own. We say "More
haste, less'speed," but the Japanese
phrase is "If In a hurry go round."
In this country we very often remark
tbat "accidents will happen in the beBt
regulated families." Tbe Japs, on the
other bnnd. with nn eye to the pictur-
esiiue, vitalize It, so to speak, In their
"Even a monkey sometimes fulls from
a tree." One of our useful English
sayings ls "Those who play with edged
tools must expect to cut their lingers."
In expressing a similar thought the
Jap goes us one better so fnr aa plc-
. turesquencs.. Is'concerned. He snys,
"If you keep tigers you nre likely to
hnve trouble." One of our standard
mnxlms ls to the effect thut "oil nnd

Improved on this. "You can't rivet a
naillh a custard" Is their way of putting It. "Tlie.'lotus springs from the
mud" ls their poetical expression of
the common thought that "out of evil
good may come."
What could be. more suggestive and
at the sainu time so poetic as their
"Scattering a fog with a fan?" When
a Jap undertakes the impossible his
neighbors do not scoff nt blm or mock

Hosen, telling of tlie orchestral concert. "A'snuirt Aleck lookln' feller set

big drum n snssy nip. Well, the smart
Aleck feller shnkes a little stick at the
drummer, an' what does he do but hit
her up ag'In jest ter show he wns as

he didn't tnke no back tnlk—or, rather,
no orders—from the suiurt Aleck mnn,
because be just kept a-wbackln' thut

It Is curious to notice Ihc vagaries of
humanity lu cases where no hard and
fast line lips been alreudy drawn. Although most right bunded persuns put
on their conts left arm first, a considerable percentage thrust in tbe right
first. Soldiers fire from the right
shoulder, but sportsmen are found who
prefer the left. In working with a
spade, a proportion of right hunded
men grasp tho spade with the left
bnnd and push with tho left foot and
right hand, though when using an ax
the same individuals would grasp
furthest down with the right.

When Hubert Ilruce, king of Scotland, Iny upon his deathbed In the
year 13211 he remembered that lie had
registered a vow to help wrest the
Holy Land from the heathen Turks.
It was clear thut the time for fulfllllng
this vow had passed, but a new thought
presented,. Why not have his heart removed and sent to Jerusalem for
burial? To lbalie the story short, this
was decided upon, and Sir James Douglas was commissioned to curry It In a
silver urn "to a place as near ns possible to where the Saviour wns cruel-
lied" and there bury It. Arriving in
Spain, Sir .Innies, with the precious
relic strung to Ills nock by a chnln,
Wus killed In a buttle with the Moors.
Sir Simeon tdeiird returned with the
heart to Scotland and deposited It under the altar of Melrose abbey, where

Williams' Pink Pills.
A few years ago Mrs. James li.
Stuart, of Thorold, Out., who is well
known to most of the residents oi
that town, found tier health severely
shattered as the result o." an attack
of anaemia. As told practically in
her own words, Mrs. Stuart says;
"My blood was turned almost to
water; 1 sullcred from nerve racking
headaches, and the least exertion
would cause my heart to palpitate so
violently as to render me. almost
breathless. I wasted away in flesh
and often was so weak that I could
not walk about. I was under the
care of a good doctor hut as 1 was
not getting ^ *7r?A grew melancholy nnri < ' ^UYutent, and felt I was
becc.iug a hopeless invalid. At this
stage I was advised to uso Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I began taking
them, thinking it would bo a miracle
if they ever helped mo. To my gre.it
gratification when 1 had been using
the pills less thuu a month 1 towel
my health improving. I used about a
dozen boxes in nil, and found myself
enjoying onco more the blessing ot
good health. I had been reduced to
nlmost, a skeleton in appearance, and
while taking the pills gained ova-
twenty pounds in weight. I gratefully recommend the pills to other
ailing women."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are the
greatest blood purifier and nerve
tonic known to medical science.
Through their use pale cheeks ure
made rosy, dull eyes made bright,
and thin wasted figures made plump.

The term "shirtwaist" uo longer
means the severely simple and often
unlovely garment which women have
clung to for so long uud which is distinctly an American creation. Foreigners who copy shirtwaists seldom secure
a real shirtwaist that is at once a aeoar-
ate waist and smart iu its style. The
French, in deed, manage to mnke of it
more of a dress waist than anything
The shirtwaist of this season is built
along more rigid lines than for mauy
years past A waist of auy color may
uot be worn with a black or white skirt,
as iu limes past, nor may colors be
mixed generally iu the way of wuy of
waist and skirt The greatest latitude
allowed a shirtwaist is permission to
match iu color the h.t Worn with it.
For Ihe rest tlie shirtwaist is nearly
always white or it matches iu color the
the dress with wliich it is worn or tho
trimming aecompaniuieuts of that dress.
Wheu these rules are complied with

the wiist with irregular figures straggling np and down from eaoh line.
Simple as this waist is it is vory smart

There is a certaiu style of skirt trimming that stauds for exclusive smartness, though there are other models
that mauy prefer aud do not hesitate to
declare far prettier. Tho style alluded
to gives tho effect of hum facings, as
they are added around the bottom and in
two or three rows spaced off above
They are also used upon the bottom in
a single row, where the lower part of
the skirt happens to be a sepnrate
flounce. Upon this flounce cord or flat
gaugiugs are often run and again upon
the top or head of the flounce. Very
much the same effect is gained by the
ruuuiug of tucks thut are wide aud well
Very pretty pink, pule greeu, bluo aud
buff batiste, have skirts laid iu these
three, wide, five to sevcu-iueh tucks, iu
throe rows. Some of the white batiste
skirts, so made, have inset bauds of
fine sheer, embroidery oi; luce, set in
above ench tnck. Tho round,' full waists
have their lace and batiste formed iuto
au Eton, by plaits; or the full drapery
of the waist, often uf alter luting lace
aud batiste, gauged at the bottom, but
kecpiug its Eton lines aud showing a
silk oi ribbon girdle below. Everything
of this style iu bodices hold high favor
in sheer or opaque fabrics. Many of the
summer silks if fashioned iu this way
are as churunug. The sleeves form
immense puffs at the top aud lessen
somewhat at the elbow, while the laco
nnd lawn flounces finish them off some
inches below, where'1 the long glove
meets, for street wear.' As the wide
sleeves are fast semiring favor the
harmony between them nud full skirts
becomes more evident.

My Dear Aunt Kale:
1 must tell yoa the.Rood news. Right
after receiving your tetter, the day before
New Year's I started in with new resolu.
tions on the first of the year. I wrote to
Dr. R. V. Pierce, at IUiflhlo, N. V , as you
requested nie to do. I rave him all my
symptoms, whleh were that I was tired—
so tired—nil tbe time nnd did not care to
go anywhere, depressed and sad, nnd nil
ambition gone, backache and a drogded-out
feeling, could not sleep, limbs feeling sore
and acliing. 1 followed the doctor's advice,
which he went to considerable pains to
uinke plain to mc—to rest < very day—a nap
after lunch—complete relaxation—cultivate
repose of mind, try not to worrv, get a9
much outdoor air a. possible, and practice lon^, deep breathing, expanding the
lungs, 'then for a uterine tonic, nr. Pierce'.
Favorite Prescription, coupled with a wash
lie told nit of. I must say that after follow,
ing his advice for four months I feel perfectly cared and like a new woman.
Yours nffectionally, Jewel.

White is always fresh and cool looking and goes well wilh any color of
dress, so Unit it is naturally 11 favorite
material for shirtwaists, but white, embroidered in colors, is also worn, nud
with golf skirts severely plain bu.t
brightly tinted waistsare often used.
While for outdoor spurts shirtwaists
are very plain, quite tho contrary is
Ibe jule tor general waists. These nro
built In (Dot) a maimer that they ate
equally suitable for wear with n very
elaborate or comparatively simple costume. There is something soft and
feniinino about the dnipty frills and
tine Inserted bands of laco that rleoo
rate the modish shirtwaist. That loueb
of mnsenliiiity wliich was onee a party
of thoso garments is entirely wanting,
nud as a cousiquetiee (licy nro uot only
moro buriuonio'.is with women's dress,
but mnch more becoming to the. wearers.
Tbe smartest of the. shirtwaists of this
season are butto:ied in the bnck,
although not conspiculosly so. For the
most part tho fastenings are so arranged
that one is .opposed to marvel how n
womau ever got into tho waist at all.
A waist fastened iu the back, built of
the most peculiar nuitcrinl imaginiablo,
looks a bit like cliocs-cloth, but is finer
aud more regular iu mesh, and, us may
be imagined, it is very cool. The neckband is of a baud of the material framed
in very open li.ee frames the yoke and
shoulder seam. 'J'ho yoke is of embroidery in outline pattern, tbo outline
being of embroidery stitoh instead of
what is known ns outline stitch. The
full sleeve is gathered to the shaped tab
of the yoke that crosses the sleove, and
its lower portion is gathered to a deep
cuff of embroidery bnttoned with little
loops along the outside aud headed nnd
into 0 pudding dish ; pour over it a piut
of milk, and let it stand over night, and
if the rice lias absorbed all tlie milk by
morning, add a little more. Add' also a
cup of raisins thnt have been seeded,
aud allowed to soak for several hours lu
brandy or whiskey. Stir into the rice,
pom- over all half a teacup of melted
buttea, nnd boko tho pudding for an
hour. Serve with whipped crentn,
or a brandy snnee. The sauce should
bo very sweel, us no sugar is used in
the pudding.

Double-tracking of the Westmiuster
Avenue Bridge was discussed Thursday
afternoon between Mr. Wyuu Meredith.
Consulting Engineer of the B. ,C. Eleo-
trio Railway Company, and the mem
bers of the Board of Works, but deflnile
notion was not taken. The matter so
far progressed, though, thnt a pbin will
be drawn np, and if it is not decided
upon at the meeting of tho Council on
Monday evening, a definite reciiunnou-
datiou will be made at the Committee
meeting uoxt Thursday.
It is very probable that wheu the early whiten- fogs descend upon Vancouver,
a thoroughly proper structure will extend over False Creek ou the avenue,
and all danger of collisions, such as the
oue which occurred Inst Fall, will be
obviated. The plan most iu favor with
both tbe Stroet Railway Company and
the City is to have the double track
dowu the middle of the bridge, with a
roadway and sidewalk on the eastern
side, and another roadway on the
western side, over the present routo of
the railway. A sidewalk on tho woatoru
side will bo added later. This will make
a bridge worthy of tho uatno, nnd when
it is raised six feet, it will afford on-
Irauco iu the navigable part of the
stream to scows to the upper part of
False Crook.
