and couraj-otM Toledanos crossed tho
liiajcmlk-ent bridge of San Martin, ono
of the handsomest and most useful archi
tectural treiisureH of that monumental
city, and, hurling themselves upon the
camp of Don Knrimie, established in the
t.'iarrales, they had wrought bloody
havoc amid tho liosieging host. To Tre
vent the reM-tition of kuc!i sallies Don
linrique determined to destroy the bridge
of .San Martin, which, ius has already been
Haiti, was the noblest of the many that
form tho girdle of the city of martyrs, of
councils, and of cavaliers. But what
value have artistic or historic monuments
in the eves of the ambitious politicians
whose dream is to bury a dagger in the
breast of a brother, that they may neat

known it is that the Cigarrales of ToL

tributed by Tinjo ami other great Spanish

country houses, with their lovely gardens
and fruitful orchards, all bhut in by
Ono night the leafy branches of these

to open, when a glow of wondrous brill

river, at whoso ftot, no history hath it,
the daughter of Don Julian was bathing
when the ill fated king net eyes upon her
fateful beauty. An immense lire blazed
on tho bridge of San Martin, and the
cracking of the massive car vin U'nms,

tvhich created the marvels of the A I ham

citizens, which had grown feeble, gained

M;my y-ars had pasised since the fratri

exerted all their jiowers to have it re

every city and village of Spain, calling
for architects to rebuild the bridge ot
Ono day a man and a woman, entirely
unknown, entered Toledo by the Cam

of tho bridge, they hired a houso close

Tho archbishop ami other wealthy Tole
danos were showering rich gifts ujon
the fortunate and skillful architect who
had succeeded in throwing tho three
great arches of the bridge, in spite of tho
gigantic daring of the work and the fu
rious currents of the river.
On the eve of the day of San Ylde
fonso, patron saint of the city, Juan do
Arevalo informed the archbishop that his
task was completed, saving only the re
moving of tho scairolding from the three
arches. It was a Kriloua test the taking
down of the complieated system of heavy
iron scairolding which braced the enor
mous mass of delicately carved timlcrs;
but the calmness with which the archi
tect awaited tho issue, which ho promised
to meet standing on the central keystone
filled those about him with cotiiidence,
With proclamations and pealing of bells
was announced for the following day tho
solemn benediction and dedication of the
bridge, and tho Toledanos, from the
heights commanding the vale of theTajo,
contemplated with joyous emotion their
ijcioveti lagarraics mat lor years nau
been sad, lonely, almost deserted, and
which were now to recover their old time
beauty and animation.
Toward nightfall Juan de Arevalo
climbed uioii the scaffolding of the cen
tral arch to seo that all was in readiness
for the morrow's ceremony. Meanwhile
he was gayly singing. All at once tho
song died on his lips, the light faded froui
his face, and sorrowfully ho descended,
anil slowly took his way homeward. His
wife, Catalina, came forth to meet him,
full of lovo and contentment, but a
frightful pallor overspread her face at
sight of tlio desiiairing countenance of
"Oh, Father in heaven!" she cried;
"what is it then, my dear one? Art thou
"Ill no! dead yes in hope, in power,
in honor! Aye! in life itself, for I will
not survive the dishonor of to-morrow.
Nay, the only shred of honor I can wrest
from fato will bo mine but in dying!"
"No! no!" cried Catalina. "Juan, thou
dreamest! Thy great excess of labor has
deranged thy thoughts, my dear one.
Come hither; let mo call tlie leech and
"Not so. It is the truth I tell thee.
When I was most euro of success, most
conlident of triumph, now on the eve of
tho test, I have discovered an error in
my calculations that to-morrow will
bury in tho Tajo the bridge and the un
fortunate who unsuccessfully planned it."
"Tho bridge may fall, beloved, but
thou shalt not go with it. On my knees
I will entreat the archbishop to exempt
thee from tliat horrible promise."
"And if ho yield, then will I not ac
cept the absolution. I care not for life
"Now 1 swear that thou shalt lose not
life nor honor!" murmured Catalina,
softly, yet with infinite resolution.
It was already almost dawn. The
cocks were crowing. Catalina seemed
to sleep, and her husband, soothed in
upite of himself by her calm demeanor,
at last fell into a litful. feverish slumber,
that was full of nightmare horrors.
Catalina arose, as silent in her motionr.
dJ the parting of a shadow, and, opening
a window, looked out on tlio vale of the
Tajo. No sound was heard but the mur
muring current of the river and the wind
that whistled through the timbers of thi
ncalToIding at the bridge. A dense and
somber pall of cloud overhung tho city,
and from iLj gloomy bosom darted, now
arnl then, lightning rays of terrible
brilliance that blinded the beholder. As
yet no rain was falling; and tho terrcrof
the im lending storm seemed concentrated
;.i the thick ialpable darkness, the om
inous brooding tilence, and the sultry,
breathless thickness of the close atmos
phere. Closing the window, the wife of the
architect caught up an unextinguished
brand that smoldered still on the hearth
stone. Out into the night she went, and,
for all the pitchy blackness that marked
that last dark hour before the day should
quicken, she sought not to guide hci
steps by tho light of tho firebraud, but
rather to conceal its gleam with the folds
of her raiment, as she hurried over the
broken and littered way to the river, and
with pain and peril climbed upon the
planks of the staging. Below her the
wind shrieked among the timbers, and
tho river roared and bellowed as it hurled
itself liTwn tlio onnosition of the niles.
and Catalina shuddered. Was it for the
solitude and the darkness? for the danger
of losing her footing and tumbling head
long."" or because she realized that thou
aliout her, overlooking the sacrifice .t
affection, would see in her movements
only tho odious deed of a criminal?
She recovered her calmness with an
effort, shook until it burst into a blaze in
tho blast the torch that until now she
had hidden, and applied it to tho lighter
braces of the staging. J. he resuious
wood cauirht with a vigorous flame, and,
fanned by the wind, leaped abroad and
climbed with terrible rapidity up the
Not less swiftly, by the light or the
spreading fire, Catalina recrossed the
dangerous path she had trodden, and
reached her homo ana her cnamuer
while her husband was still sleeping.
Bv this time the massive sleeiers of
the bridge of San- Martin were cracking.
A little later a dull and prolonged mur
mur was heard throughout the citv. and
from a hundred belfries tolled the omin
ous lire alarm, to which lugubrious sig
nal ensued a crash tliat called from the
Toledanos tho same cry of distress tliat
they had uttered when the bridge suc
cumbed to the vandal attack of Don En
rique the Bastard.
Juan de Arevalo awoke with a species
of spasm. Catalina was at his side, ap-
farently bleeping. Juan clothed lumselt
mrriedJy, and as he reached the street
his heart leaped with joy as he realized
that the fire had obliterated the proof of
lus faulty judgment.
The archbishop and tho Toledanos at
tributed the fire to a belt from heaven,
and tho sorrow they felt for their own
loss was tempered by tho sympathy felt
for the architect, whom they deemed to
liavo seen the results of his labor de
stroyed even in tho hour of triumph; and
tho arcliitect ldmself, who was a pious
soul, of a profound fidtli in the protection
cf heaven, was devout in the same con
viction. As for Catalina, she assured her hus
band tliat sho was entirely of the same
opinion, and, as women are rarely guilty
of falsehood, surely so venial a lie may
bo forgiven to ono who liad saved the
honor raid the life of her husband.
Tlio conflagration only retarded for a
year tho triumph of Juan de Arevalo,
for a twelvemonth later, to a day, on the
fete cf San Yldefonso, the Toledanos
crossed the bridge of San Martin to their
beloved Cigarrales, and the successful
builJer cf tho structure was the toast of
tho occasion, and the honored guest at
tho banquet spread in joyous celebration.

TH FLYING MACHINE PROBLEM.
Lcuoo Taught by the Uirtl Thiwo Iutlln-
Tlio reason of this wonderful ofTeet
tveness of the animal machine is ob
vious. Heo how this machine lia3 boen
gradually crfectcd throughout in
finite ages, csiecially in birds. During
tho wholo geological history of tlio
earth this machine has been steadily
improving in structure of tlceleton,
energy of muscle and rapidity of com
bustion of fuel, by struggle for life and
survival of only the swillest, tho most
energetic and the hottest blooded, until
an almost incredible inteiisitj is
reached in birds. Moreover, in tiiem
everything is sncrificd to tho supreme
necessity of flight. Viscera, skeleton,
legs, head, all are made as small and
light as ossible to make room for the
great pectoral muscles working the
wings. Add to this tho exquisite
structure of the wings and feathers,
adapting them for tho greatest eli'ect
iveness, and we imift admit that a
bird is an incomiiaruble model of a
No machine that wo may hope to
devise, for tho same weight of ma
chine, fuel and directing brain, is half
so effective. And yet this machine
thus perfected through infinite ages
by a ruthless process of natural selec
tion, reaches its limit of weight at
alxmt fifty xunds! I said, weight
of machine, fuel and directing brain."
Hero is another prodigious advantage
of the natural over the artificial ma
chine. Tlio flying animal is its own
engineer, the flying machine must
carry its engineer. The directing en
gineer in the former (tho brain) is per
haps an ounce, in the latter it is 150
pounds. The limit of the flying ani
mal is fifty pounds. Tho smallest
possible weight of a flying machine,
with its necessary fuel and engineer,
even without freight or iwisseiigers,
could not bo less than 3U0 or 400
Now, to complete the argument, put
these three indisputable facts together:
1. There is a low limit of weight, cer
tainly not much beyond fifty pounds,
beyond which it is impossible for an
animal to fly. Nature has reached this
limit, and with her utmost clFort has
failed to pass it. 2. The animal ma
chine is far more effectivo than any
wo may hope to make ; therefore the
limit of the weight of a successful fly
ing machine cannot be more than
fifty pounds. 3. Tlio weight of" any
machine constructed for flying, in
cluding fuel and engineer, can not be
less than three or four hundred
pounds. Is it not demonstrated that a
true flying machine, self raising, self
sustaining, self propelling, is physi

Driving Away Malicious Spirits.
Whenever wo are to ascend a dan
gerous rapid and nearly all are so
considered by tho native itinerary, and
probably are at certain seasons of the
year a boatman brings out an old
rusty four baritded blunderbuss, rams
the barrels full of powder, picks in
fuses and stations himself at the side
of tho boat for the most serious busi
ness connected with tho ascent. As
the bout strikes the first fierce break
ers, one barrel is discharged into the
water; tho gun is then dropped upon
the deck, and the sailor tugs for a
while at the iojies; when we have
swung around and plowed and
plunged sufficiently with little prog
ress, ho drops his work, whatever it
may be, fires another fuse and ex
plodes tho half ounce of powder into
the foam ; tho tliird and fourth cham
bers aro likewise emptied if the busi
ness is continued long enough.
This may seem a curious and useless
custom to those unacquainted with the
Chinese ideas of demonology, but
once having mastered this branch of
their intricate religious system, it will
appear to be the most natural and
necessary proceeding. Malicious spir
its are in and around all dangerous
placeSj and ready to do all manner of
mischief. They can be frightened bv
terrific sounds; ergo, in passing all
such spots the Chinaman naturally
yells, beats a gong, explodes tire
crackers or powder in any form. At
worship, at weddings, funerals, in
times of severe sickness, the greater
the noise the more likely the demons
are to hide themselves. Tho water is
crowded with such demons, and they
are either frightened or propitiated by
the boatmen. "Western China."

Day after day you may wander
through these forests with nothing ex
cept the climate to remind you where
you are. The beasts, to be sure, are
Uitferent, but unless you watch for
them you will seldom see any; the
birds are different, but you rarely hear
them ; and as for the rocks, they are our
own familiar gneisses and granites,
with honest basalt dikes boring through
them, and leopard skin lichens stain

Once a week you will see a palm ;
once in three months the monkey will

whole, are few; the trees are poor,

forest clad mountains have a sublimity
of their own, and though there are
tropical bits along some of the moun

Tlio Scotch miner has many ways of
amusing lumsclf. Quoits is a favorite
game of his, so Is a gamo called
"rounders a sort or bastard cricket
and cricket itself isonular tunong tho
younger men, but with them football
is the favorite pastime. Leaping, run
ning, throwing tho hammer, and to.cs
ing the caber are all practiced, ami in
some parts a game called "bullet play
ing" is in high favor. I have never
seen this played except in the Lothians
and Stirlingshire, jir.d there it was at
one time tho crack amusement, luither
a jieculiar umu.Xiincnt it is, too. It is
played in this manner: A certain dis
tance, say n milo out and n inilu in, i
fixed uion as the ground to be covered
by the players, and tho man who docs
so in tho fewest number of throws is
declared tlio winner. The bullet is a
polished ball of haitl whiustone, and
weighs from ten to fourteen ounce's.
and this ball tho player takes into Lis
hand, ami, running to a line drawn on
the roadway, ho swings his an:i and
tln-ows with all his might This is
termed "launching tho bullet," and u
good player can cover the uiilo in live
or six throws.
The ganio is one mainly of rtrength.
but a giMxl deal of skill can be shown
in it Each player has si man in front
to show where the bullets should bo
landed, and his Lur.iness is b t:ecj that
if hi.) directions are followed tho bullet
of hi3 player will have the best part of
the rood to run on. Tho game is a I ways
played on the best highway in tnc
neighborhood, and 'the authorities ob-

never have heard of any accident
arising therefrom. A bullet match is
to the Scotch miner what a dog fight
is to his Northumbrian or Staffordshire
congener, or a prize fight to an East
End Londoner. The fact that it is for
bidden by law adds to its attractive
ness, and it afTords ample opjiortunities
for betting. Bets arc made on the
throw, on the distance out, and on tho
complete match, and when two "dons'"
are played the excitement runs high.
Invention of the Shot Tuner.
There was once a mechanic at Bris
tol, England, who had a queer dream.
Watts was his name, and he wis by
trade a shot maker. The making of
the little leaden pellets was then a
slow, laborious and, consequently,
costly process. Watts had to Luke
great bars of lead and ixnmd them out
into sheets of a thickness about equal
to the diameter of the shot he desired
to make. Then he cut tho sheets into
little cubes, which ho placed in a re
volving barrel or box and rolled until
the edges wore olF from tho constant
friction and the little cubes became
Watts had often racked his brain
trying to devise a better scheme, but
in vain. Finally, after an evening
spent with some jolly companions at
the alehouse lie went homo and turned
into bed. Ilo soon fell into a deep
slumber, but tho liquor evidently did
not apree with him tor l:o had a br.d
dream. He thought he was out a'rain
with tlio "bo vs." Thev were all Irv
ing to find their way homo when il
began to rain shot. Doautiful glob
ules of load, iolbhc.'d and shming fell
in a torrent and compelled him and
hij bibulous companions to draw taeii
heavy limbs to a piaec c.t .c;aeltoi
In the moi'iiing, when Vv't tts v.ro::o.
he remembered tho dream. Ho thought
about it all day, and wondered want
shape molten lead would tnko i:i tail
ing a distance through lao air. At
last, when he could rcct no longer, he
carried a ladleful of tho hot mcLil up
into tho steeple of the church cf Ct
Mary, of RedcliiPe, and dropped it
into tlio moat below. Descending, he
took from tho bottom of tho shallow
pool several handfuls of perfect shot,
far superior to any ho had ever seen.
Watts fortuno was made, for he had
conceived tho idea of the shot tower,
which has ever since been tho only
means employed in the manufacture
of the little niissiles so much used in
war and sport. Chicago Mail.
Imiortauco of Recording Deeds.
Due record of deeds is a matter of
vast importance in transfers, even
though a deed bo "perfectly good with
out record against tho grantor himself
and his heirs," and although "a deed
not i-ecorded is just as good as if it had
been recorded against any parties or the
heirs of any parties who took the land
from tho grantor by a subsequent deed,
even for a full price, if they had at the
time notice or knowledge of tho prior,
and unrecorded deed." Neglect of
registration is a fruitful cause of ex
pensive worry and litigation. Regis
tered judgments, heirs unexpectedly
turning up, mortgages whose satisfac
tion has not been recorded, rights of
dower and courtesy, both of which
conveyancers would gladly abolish in
order to facilitate transfer?, are diffi
culties in tho way of undisputed title.
Equity ultimately decides in courts of
law who is entitled to possession, but
duo precaution in search end record
would, in uhxA instances, nullify the
need of resort to it All titles are
cleared by sale under judic ial decree.
