In a paper on def ective, read by Dr.
Martin W. Barr, chief physician of U
Pennsylvania school for feeble mliid
td children, before the summer s-hool
of philanthropy at the charities build
ing, a remarkable instance, wai men
tioned by him of eccentricity that haa
causad comment in scientific circlea.
It wai the case of an American mul
timillionaire who ia living in far ast
em countriea and leading a life of aueh
peculiarity at to be almost hicredible,
aaya a New York report.
According to Dr. Karr, thii man la a
neurotic. It is estimated that hia for
tune ia In the neighborhood of 110,
000,000, but no attempt haa been made
to have him declared incompetent;
he ta left free to run hie course. Ilia
family are refined and socially promi
nent. Whenever they apeak of the
on'a eourae, they refer to it aa hie
"nervousness." They will not admit
that ha haa a deranged Intellect,
though ha haa left friends and posi
tion here to take up a life among the
"Hanine," the grave diggers and ao
clal outcast of the far east.
"He was a physician, rich, handsome,
cultured, of aesthetic tastes," said
Dr. Harr in his paper, "a graduate of
one of the most prominent medical
eolleges in America, and a man who
bad made a pronounced hit aa a
specialist.
His furtune enabled him to eecure
every medical appliance known to
science and for aome years he en
joyed phenomenal success. Wine and
women proved hia bane. He sank
lower and lower. Hia peculiarities
no longer tolerated at home, he
drifted from capital to cnplinl of Eu
rope, and finally established himself
In Japan. With an appetite still un
satisfied, he exhibited new phases of
moral degeneration, causing his
body to be tattooed with wonderful
skill, every picture a work of art.
His back bore a huge drngon, the
ahadlng of every scale showing per
fection of detutl. Tli is, on revisiting
America, with utmost vanity he
shamelessly exposed. lie was turned
out of the clubs.
Returning to Japan, he bought a
performing bear and wandered from
place to place elad In the garb of
Uanln, exhibiting himself awl hia
bear, and distributing photographs of
eaoh and all in endless variety.
"This master of eccentricity," said
Dr. Ilarr, "shocking both Euroim and
America, and astounding even Jap
anese next hired a sijuad of Japan
ese boys, practically buying them
outright from thair parents, who, at
tired In full uniform, are trained in
military exercises. To these are op
posed an equal number of monkeys,
dressed aa Chinese soldiers, and the
war of China and Japan ia constantly
renewed for Die entertainment of him
self and his aatelltea, who watch In
the testacy nf delight the suffering
of the poor brutes. Kewards are of
fered, and the more bloody the eon
teat and the greater the atrocities,

A Nervous Woman
Will often feel compelled to aton the
clock whose ticking seems unbearable to
her. In such a nervous condition the
woman needs a building up of the entire
system. It is useless to attempt the cure
while the cause
of the nervous
ness remains un
cured. A very
common cause
of nervousness
in women ia a
diseased condi
tion of the delicate
womanly organism.
Ir. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription cures
womanly diseases and
the nervousness which
they cause. It changes
irregularity to regular
ity, dries the drains
which weaken women,
beats Inflammation and ulceration and
cures female weakness. It is a perfect
tonic and nervine, traiujuiliziiig the
nerves, promoting the appetite and in
ducing refreshing sleep.

The design of a long bridge span is
one of the most elaborate mathemat
ical problems that arises in construe- (
tlve work. The stresses produced by
Its own weight, by the weight of traf
Hc, by locomotive drivers, by the hinn
merlng of flattened wheela, by the
action of brakes on an express triiin,
by the high speed of a curved truck,
by the wind and by the expansion ami
contraction of the steel in summer
and winter, are all accurately calcu
lated. The definition of the loaded t
and unloaded bridge is determined,:
anil complete drawings nre miule of
every member of It The bnrs of steel
are tested in machines which will pull
In two a horsehair or a steel bar
strong enough to lift half a score of j
the heaviest locomotives at once, and
which will crush an egg-shell or a I
steel column, and accurately measure
the atreas In each case. The differ
ent kinds nf members nre forced, riv
eted, bored or pinned In perhaps half
a doren remote simps, and although
usually not fitted together there, are
examined and measured by special
ists to see that they are correct,
and are then shipped by scores of
car loads to the site of the proposed
structure, where steam derricks un
load them and pile them many feet
high In stacks covering acres of
ground.
The huge piers may riae above the
water, hundred of feet apart. It re
mains to place on them a I.OOO-ton
struct lire, high above a savnge chasm,
over an impassable current or roar
liifc tide, where the water is deep, the
bottom of jagged rocks, or trencher-1
ous quicksand, or where nn old bridge j
must be removed and the new one
built In its place without interrupting i
navigation or obstructing continuonal
trafllc. ou the bridge. To accomplish I
this the engineer hns timber, bolts
and ropes, hoisting engines, derricks,
and a band of intrepid builders, who
have perhaps followed him for yenrsi
through more hardship nnd danger
than fall to the lot of almost any
other calling, writes Frank W. Skin
ner. In Century.
The complicated framework of a
great span is a skeleton with many
accurate joints and thousands of steel
sinews and bones, each nf which must
go in exactly the right place in ex
actly the right order. The builder
must, weave into the trusses pieces
larger, heavier and far more index
ible than whole tree-trunks: swiftly
hoist and swing them to place hun
dreds of feet high: fit togelher the
massive girders ami huge forged bars
with watchmaker's accuracy; support
the unwieldy masses until they are
keyed together and snlf-anMuiniug;
and under millions of pounds of si ress
must adjust them, at divy heights,
to mathematical lines. This he may
need to do, not deliberately In a com
fortable shop or on a solid platfcrm,
but In dangerous emergencies at ut
most speed, putting forth his whole
strength on narrow, springing planks
In a furious tempest, in bitter cold or
In hlaiug heat, lie may be In the
heart of an frlran desert, menaced
by blood thirsty fanatics, or in a
gorge of the Amies, hundreds of miles
from tools or supplies, where, there ia
absolutely no supplement to his own
resources. I'ndcr such conditions
bridge building Is one of the most
fascinating and ditneutt of engineer
ing problems, and requires a differ
ent solution for almost every case.
