of the falls is a pool which seem?

an undergound outlet to, the St. Law-

On either side of the top of the
falls are immense stone piers which,
a few years ago, supported a suspen

had been completed only a few
weeks, when, one day without
warning, it collapsed and went over
the falls into the pool below. A
carriage with several persons were
on the bridge at the time, and from
that day to this nothing has been
seen of the bridge, the persons, the
carnage or the horses. All were
swallowed up in tha pool with the

has been built, but it sets on piers,
