The air was heavy with the fragrance of buds and foliage, and far upon the hillside the rain crow hung out his weather bulletin for the next day. The bees danced on the clover WoomB, and the map)c trees, as red as blood, hung their curtain on the wood. Reginald and Beatrice bad strolled through the scented field and were returning home laden with beautiful flowers. "Hark! what is that?" screamed Beatrice, as the sharp report of a pistol rung out upon tho air. Reginald peered over the fence and saw the bleeding, prostrate form of a man with .a pistol still smoking Id his hand.

The cost of the hi id.-e itself is estimated at Slfl,000,000, tho appioacbes Jit $7,000,-000 aud the riyht of way at from $11,000,-000 to $13,000,000.

"What kind of a bridge do you wish to built!?'* "The plans have all bocu prepared. It w'01 be tbc largest bridge in the world. The English Channel bridge which is talked of will not compare with it, for its longe-'l. bp an will be 1,700 feet while one span will be S.SjO feet long. It is the length of the span which decides the size of a bridge aud not the. length of the biidge itJieif from an engineering standpoint.
