Page 26 - And trims his helmet's plume ; When the goodwife's shuttle merrily Goes flashing through the loom ; With weeping and with laughter Still is the story told, How well Horatius kept the bridge In the brave days of old.
Page 34 - ... found Rome a city of brick, and left it a city of marble.
Page 226 - There were four cables 10*4 inch diameter, containing 520 wires in each or a total of 3,640, the wires of Mr. Ellet's old foot bridge being incorporated with the others. The masonry towers were 60 feet high above the road, 15 feet square at the base, and 8 feet square at the top, and the bridge was braced laterally against wind pressure by 56 wire guy ropes, 1%-inch diameter, fastened to rocks below, the guys detracting considerably from its appearance.
Page 71 - Ghajar crosses a stream which is one of the chief sources of the Jordan.
Page 380 - The new metal structure which took its place is shown on page 21, and is an interesting example of the American method of metal viaduct construction, an essential feature of that construction being the concentration of the material into the least possible number of parts. This bridge has ten spans of 50 feet, two of 100 feet, and one of 118 feet.
