THE F. & C.
Fifty-One Bridges On Sixty
Miles of Railroad Heavy
From the Franklin .Et'enijicf News we
clip tbe following facts and figures
given that paper by F. H. Walker
the engineer who was responsible for
the mechanical work on the Franklin
& Clearfield railroad:
"Tbe Franklin & Clearfield railroad
which has been under construction
during tbe past four years, extends
easterly from Franklin, Pa., for a dis
tance of sixty miles, to Brookville,
through Venango, Clarion and a por
tion of Jefferson counties. This ter
ritory is In tbe Allegheny Mountain
region, and bence the construction is
very heavy and difficult. The greater
portion of the roadbed is graded double
track, and over 6,000,000 cubic yards
of grading have been required. There
are fifty-five steel bridges, which re
quired 15,000 tons of steel in their con
struction. These bridges were all built
of a capaoity about equal to Cooper's
E 60 loading. The construction work
required 162,000 yards of concrete and
15,000 yards of stone masonry. j
"Tbe ninety-foot spanB, of which
there are twenty-six, are very heavy,
each girder weighing about thirty
three tons. . These girders were all
placed by tbe American Bridge Com
pany with a thlrty-flve-ton derrick car.
Tbe several large viaducts, the largest
of which Is 1,200 feet long and 135 feet
In greatest depth, were also erected by
the Amerlan Bridge Company. These
larger bridges are all double track
structures. Tbe viaducts of no greater
depth than about fifty feet were erected
with the thlrty-flve-ton derrick car.
Those of greater depth were erected
by this same derrick car, with the
assistance of a two-boom traveler."

HOOK WORMS CASE IN TOWN.
A Local Doctor Treated a Case Success
fully and Bottled Some of
Laziness Is not an uncommon or new
oomplatnt, as every generation has had
a certain percentage of lazy people,
but It has only been receutly that the
publlo has been Informed, through
newspapers and magazines, that this
lazy, Indolent, sluggish feeling Is
caused by a tiny little worm which med
ical science calls a hook worm. Re
cently John D. Rockefeller contributed
$1,000,000 to treat people of the south'
land who are victims of the hook worm
It is not'necessary to go out of lieyn
oldsvllle to find lazy people, which
would prove that the people of the
southland don't have a monopoly on
the hook worm.
One of our doctors got a case which
had the book worm symptoms and be
treated the man for hook worms and
succeeded in removing hundreds of tbe
tiny hook worms from his system.
Some of the hookworms have been
preserved In alcohol. They are about
t inch long and about as large around
as No. 60 thread. .' f -

a host of friends, who will be shocked
to hear of his death although it has
not been unexpected for tbe past ten
days... He had been ailing for about
a year and for tbe past six weeks bad
been confined to hlB bed almost con
tinually, tbe trouble was a complication
of organlo troubles.

ol bis death. He served as a soldier
during the entire Civil War, being
a member of Company B, 149tb Regi

render ended tbe strife."
