AT THE RESORTS.
There were Ftiftches of roadbed over
which the construction train moved at a
rate of ISO feet an hour. The machine
VtDixei tva« cm> which differs In many
essentials from that which has been used
«is cl the Missirslppi River. One of
the most Interesting features is the man
ner in which the material Is delivered to
the roadbed, and the comparatively few
men required for the different operations,
me the tfrs and rails are lifted and moved
from the cars on which they are carried
to the roadbed, being connected and
sria.^d while the train is In motion.
An endless chain carrier puts the ties
in position, uMle a crane suspended upon
a Etec 1 . truss !>iwers the rails in advance
of the construction train. In this manner
the ctij?li)«-ci's in charge of the road hope
ti run into Clnci-'nati many weeks earlier
than they could otherwise have done.
The vork done upon the Cincinnatf,
Richmond and Muncie road demonstrated
that a force of lorty competent men were
nil tliat ;-*-cre i<t|i'ir»d to operate the mi
chine to Its fullest capacity, and that
wh^n renditions \\cr? favorable over tbree
miles ';f track in a day of ten hours could
be r"t down without difficulty, while an
«\<*raj:r 1 1 eve- two and one-half miles
could b« refolded. The gearing on which
t!.» mutCTiil Is conveyed from the plat
form through the machine can be oper
ated at the same rate of speed at which
t!.o trjtii ir nif.vfJ, or its speed '1:11 be
doublr-d. The weir hi of the rails h'a.tdied

This track-laying machine automatically
end accurately lifts the ties and rails into
po.-ltion, the most drudging labor in all
railroad construction. It also furnishes
the motive power for its own construction
This piea» of mechanism is the invention
cl a man named Hurley, who has spent all
of the paSv ten years in perfecting it; be
sides expending thousands upon thousands
of dollars on models, and so forth, before
success crowned his efforts. The machine
weighs about fifty tons, and was made in
Scranton, Pa. It is the only one of Its
kind in existence.
At the rate of three and a half miles a
<Jay a mos' peculiar machine Is now en
gaged In laying the tracks of the Cincin
nati. Richmond and Muncie Railroad.
It is calculated that if the right kind of
trees can be made to crow, on the in
vestment of a small sum, the State in 30
years will get something like $20,000,000
from the sale of the standing timber and
that thereafter the income of the State
will amount to millions of dollars every
year. — New Tork Commercial.
When the land Is taken the work of
carrying out the reforestation of the
State will be carried out - by • Chairman
Pettlgrove. the head of the State Depart
ment of Prisons.
The work will be done on a large scale,
and practically every section of this State
where forests are needed will eventually
benefit by the policy. As for the State,
there is good reason for saying that the
profits of the undertaking will in tfme be
big enough to wipe out the present State
debt. Possibly it may make all State
The State will take lands by the right
of eminent domain. Only land now con
sidered worthless but good enough to
plant trees on. will be taken. Outside of
the large cities of Massachusetts, such
land exists almost everywhere. The
land long ago refused to pay taxes on it
It is. to all practical purposes, public
land to-day. The back taxes on such land
are enough to wipe out any claim to
ownership that might be set up. There
Is other land, almost as worthless, on
which small taxes have been paid the
land being assessed at only a nominal
price. This land also. If taken by emi
nent domain, could be bought for little
more than the expense of condemnation
In almost every case, this land was
once the site of a forest, but the wood
ha* been cut off. As it Is good for noth
ing else but woodland, the owners will be
glad to get anything for It. The takings
by the State, therefore, will amount in all
to a good many thousand acres, probably
The total cannot yet be stated, because
even the State officials have not yet de
elded upon that total.
Under the general direction of Governor
Bates, plans are in progress for restoring
the forests of Massachusetts by the work
of convict camps. This will be the first
experiment of the kind in the United
States. It will probably attract the no
tice of sociologists all over the world,
says the Boston Advertiser.
The old ccment-llned noria, or com
munity well, was cleaned out while the
committee was on the ground, and after
twenty-five years" Inactivity it save forth
a fine volume of Ice-cold water. This
work on the well has been in contempla
tion by the neighboring people for twenty
years, but Jolon la a "manana" country
and it remains for the leaguo to place it
onco again in commission.
The lumber for the restoration is fur
nished by the Sans lumber mill, situated
on the Santa Luclas, about twenty miles
from the mission, and Its proximity haa
reduced the price almost one-half. It is
an interesting fact that most of these
giant Umbers are being cut and hau'.od
by descendants of the mission Indiana,
who have continued to practice the in
dustries taught their ancestors by the
padres in the long ago.
So, too, will the walla be rebuilt large
ly by their hands. The work is in charsa
of Architect Will r>. Shea, but tne im
mediate superintendency' Is in the han<H
of J. Alonzo Forbes, who for thlrty-sevon
years has lived within call of the mission
bells and is familiar with every detail of
the famous old cloister. Alany of tho
Spanish "residents of the surrounding
country have volunteered to donate a
week's labor toward the restoration of
their beloved chapel, within whose shad
ow many, were reared, and this offer be

for the eun shines hot on the San Anto

antipathy to labor.
The league has obtained proprietorship
from George Dutton of many furnishings
of the mission and numerous articles usetl
about the ancient workshops. These. In
cluding a beautiful copper baptismal font.
will be replaced in the cloister when tho
restoration Is complete.
The league has on hand $1100. which it
confidently hopes will b<* augmented as
the work progresses. The Native Son*
and Native Daughters have manifested
great Interest in the belated work of res

the Young Men's Institute announced itj
intention to asisst in the patriotic work.

or their mothers, xH | i V
are earnestly in s Jr^ »
vited to write Mrs* <£$
Pinkham for advice; all such letters are
strictly confidential ; she has guided in a
motherly way hundreds of young women ;
and her advice is freely and cheerfully given.
School days are danger days for American girls.
Often physical collapse follows, and it takes years to recover the
lost vitality. Sometimes it is never recovered.
Perhaps they are not over-careful about keeping their feet dry;
through carelessness in this respect the monthly sickness is usually
rendered very severe.
Then begin ailments which should be removed at once, or they will
produce constant suffering. Headache, faintness, slight vertigo, pains
in the back and loins, irregularity, loss of sleep and appetite, a tendency
to avoid the society of others, are symptoms all indicating that woman's
arch-enemy is at hand.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has helped many a
young girl over this critical period- With it they have gone through
their trials with courage and safety. With its proper use the young
girl is safe from the peculiar dangers of school years and prepared for
A Young Chicago Girl "Studied Too Hard."

health and vitality. Father said I studied^ too
hard, but the doctor thought different and

the paper of Mrs. Pinkham's great cures.
