FROM LIMA TO GillQLA.
a hide ovi:n Tin: okova ilyu.koad.
We stopped sit Chofcica about 9
o'clock long enough to get a cup of
coffee, or a nip of something
stronger as the case might be, ami
then were off agaiti. Now, wc
could begin to see the mountains
and the road, and though not in the
wild part, it was still interesting
and novel. As yet the valley of the
Kimac (through' which by the way,
the road is built clear to the sum
rait), was wide enough to allow
small fields, and io could sec the
acequias or ditches for irrigation
along the mountain side. It is said
that the Incas had regular acque
duets, very well built, for convey
ing the water down the valley, but
no vestige remains. TCvciy little
field is cultivated, and we could see
corn, and other giains growing
At 10 o'clock, wc had reached
San Bortoloini, 17 miles and 4,919
feet (7.0G k. in. and 1,500 mcties)
which is the point where the dis
tinctive fcatuiea of the Oioy.i road
begin. Thus far it ha not differed
from ordinary mountain loads. Ileie
there is a switch and a turntable, for
you start out to go further, by ap
parently going back, that is 3-011 aie
pointed back, but you go up, up,
up all the time, with a grade of four
per cent, 211 feet to the mile -10
metres per kilometer.)
From the st.itiou at San Haitolo
ini, 0110 .readily sees up on the
mountainside, about a mile away,
and apparently two hundred feet
aboe the platform, the cntiance to
a tunnel. To gel to it you must go over
about five hundred feet of the road,
which doubles or V's on itself twice,
as the actual difference in height is
about 800 feet (2-11 metres.) This
way of winding and twisting about
is certainly new, and it seems at
times almost as if one hardly knew
which waj- he was going. Just be
fore entering the tunnel, we look
back, and away below us San Bar
tolomi looks very, very small.
Now that we are in the clear sun
shine, wc can see the grand old
peaks of the mountains towering
above us in wild grandeur, on every
hand, and making the railroad
grand as it is, sis a ieat of engineer
ing, seem but a liny tlnead drawn
along the sides, and seeming to
threaten it with utter annihilation,
when some huge crag gets loose and
rolls down upon it.
Next we reach the Verrugas
Bridge, one of the great bight h oi
the load, at a height of 5800 feet,
(17G0 metres.) To get a good idea
of it, we walked across, and felt
very small in comparison with every
thing else around.
The budge is nearly COO feet long
and is supported on three iron piers,
the largest and center one being
252 feet (7G8 metres.) Each pier
is trussed from four cylindrical
comer struts, so that great strength
and rigidity are secured with light
ness. The whole effect, like that of
the Brooklyn Bridge, or the new
cantilerer bridge atNisigaiais that
of great lightness, which is here
much increased by the towering
masses of the mountains on every
On the other side wc mount again
into the coupe oi La Eavorila, mid
are off. Our next stop i3 at Surco,
where our engineer, who it will be
remembered, is train dispatcher,
goes to telegraph about the move
ments of the down passenger, and
tho up-freight train. On wo go
again until at 11 o'clock, we anho
at Matucara,7288 ft. (2371 metres),
abovo sea level, and GJ miles, (101 J
k. m.) from Callao.
Here we stopped for lunch at the
clean and neat hotel adjoining the
railway station, and it is interesting
to know that wo have just left at
Surco, the upper boundaiy of a ter
ritory, San Bartoiomi being tho
lower, which was tenibly fatal to
the workmen of the load.
It appears that if one spends
much time in this region, ho is at
tacked with a terrible malady called
the Oroya fever. Nothing exactly
like it occurs elsewhere very foi
tunately but it causes great suffer
ing with aches and pains all over
tho body. If desith does not ensuo,
what is called the Ycirugas, next
attacks tho sufferer, and seems to
sava him, though it as loathsome as
can be, as the patient breaks out
with hugo bleeding warts about an
inch long all over the body. It is
not known exactly what causes tho
trouble, but it &eetn& to bo some-
tiling connected with the locality.
It is not the water, for the Kimac
furnishes all tho valley abovo and
below, as well as heic. 'More than
10,000 men died in the hospital of
the R. K. Co., and it is estimated
that about 20,000 moro who would
not go to the hospital died also. Mr.
Cilley and Mr. tlubbcll both had
the fever, but were saved by their
indomitable pluck. They would not
give up, and kept on horseback di
recting the men all the lime.
line he had the errugas, on 0110
occasion, Mr. Cilley rode ftom Chi
cla to Chosiea, to which point tho
load was completed in a day, with
relays of hoises, and every time he
changed horses the attendants pull
ed off his boot3 to empty out the
blood. A ical man of iron! Under
Mich a loader failure is impossible.
