of a Turmoil
At first sight . there appears
nothing romantic about the South
wark bridge, whose reconstruc
tion is now being debated. But
there is a wonderful little story
behind it, after all, says St. James'
Gazette. There was the inevita
ble fight over its construction.
Street traffic and the necessities
of pedestrianism might go hang so
long as the traffic of the river was
not interfered with ; and it was to
get over the opposition of the cor
poration and conservators that
the Bennies had to make such
enormous spans the largest ever
attempted in the history of en
gineering up to that period. This
necessitated the use of blocks of
granite greater in extent than had
ever been quarried since the days
of the ancients. It could not be
done, masons declared. 'Sir John
Rennie on his part swore that it
could and should. He went to Ab
erdeen, and at Peterhead found a
block of granite weighing 25 tons.
That he would have whole, he
' By excessive wages and unpre
cedented largesse of the native
wine, men were got to cut and de
tach the mass from its moorings.
But then it had to be taken four
miles along the road to port.
Such a thing had never been heard
of. Sir John managed to fake up
a carriage, and after a journey of
a day and a half, part of which was
spent in digging the monster out
of collapsed roadways, 12 or 14
horses got it to the vessel which,
after extraordinary difficulties,
the engineer . had succeeded in
chartering. There were no cranes
to lift such a weight. . They had
to build a scaffolding in the bed of
the harbor to get the block
aboard. Eventually the thing was
accomplished, and although every
mariner save the one who had un-
iertaken the commission believed:
that the enterprise would send
the vessel to the bottom, the gran
ite was safely brought to London,
and a new era in engineering in
augurated. One curious feature
in the history , of Southwark
bridge is that it was opened at
dead of night. As the clock of St.
Paul's chimed midnight it was de
clared free to the public.

' The out-of-work man in the
smart set, who formerly lent him
self, for a consideration, as a
"guinea pig" director, "toted" for
tradesmen 6n commission, or sold
furniture, country houses, or mo
tor cars, has found a new profes-
uon. It is that or "society spy."
According to a correspondent of
London Truth, (who signs him
self "A Shopkeeper and a Gentle
nan"), the "society spy" is inval
uable If a West end man is in
difficulties, or his wife has over-
ated his patience, the , "society
ipy" informs the trade at once. ,
If a West end man who has been
for, years on the brink of bank
ruptcy wins a large sum at the,
?ard table there are intimate
friends who profit by making the
good fortune known. A.t a time
when there are so many who are
rich, or appear to be rich, whose
Dames are unfamiliar the shop
keeper might make serious mis
takes were it not for the informa
tion which is so given.
The tradesman is only too hap
py to pay for infomation which
jnables him to avoid a severe loss.
Tradesmen in former days sel
lom ventured to ask such ques
tions; and their customers, as a
rule, supported each other.
Now, says Truth's "informant,
the difficulty shopkeepers have
to contend against is that
most of their customers, especial-,
ly if' they are intimate friends,
liave not a good word to say f or
sach other. Modern English so
ciety is to-day an "association of
Bnemies who profess to be
friends." . '
