in Colorado. and which climbs up one
of tle shoulders of elr-ay's peak itil
it reaches the Itplialing altitude of
1-4.007 feet above sea level.
Aside fioni a railroad in Souti
Aieirica, which Crosses an Aideain

end of the Ar'gentiine Central, this Co
l"rado roads is the highest actual rail
roald inl the world. It is nearly as high
ns the w'or-ld-famlouls eo" road upl
Pilk's peak, and is more than -100
feet higher than the celebrated Jung
f'ra railrload inl Switzerland, which
is thle marvel'c of Eui'opean enigneer's.
G 0ray 's peak, whose gruim topl thits new

is one of the muidhtiest moutinls oin

as a Gov'ermionnt Weatheret flureau ob

shiouldei's of Gray 's p)eak, rises somie
20(00 feet higher', and to scale it looks
like a sheer' imp)ossiblity. Bunt the
engine r'ushecs at an 8 p)er cent grade
and the last ascent has begun. Thei'e
are four' switchbacks from the Comn
monwecalth tunnel to the top of the
mioiintaini, and thle gr'ade will average
nearly 8 per~ cent. This means that
the train climbs eight feet out of ev
ery htmdi'ed it advainces. In fact,
the entiire road fr'om Silvei' Plume to
the mountain top) averages a 6 per
cent gr'ade, which is something hither
t.o unheard of in railroad construe
tion. The curves, wvhich are so numer'
oins as to leave the impression that
there i.9 not a sti'aight i'ail in the en
lire railr'oad, av'erage 30 dlegr'ees.
Soon the train is above t,imbei' line,
and a veritable sea of peaks bursts
upon the vision of the beholder. On1
every hand the gaunt granite heads of
moi(untains lift themselves like p)etri-.
fied waves. Far to the north can be
seenl Ilountains in tle adjacent State
of Wyoming, while to the west caln
be m11ade out the Gore range, well to
ward the Utah line, if the day is
clear a bright yellow streak can be
discerned bet wecn the uttermost
peaks fifty miles to the east. That
streak is the vast plain east of the
Rockies, and some days the smoke of
busy Denver can be discerned. As
many as 175 snow peaks have been
coited from the end of the Argen
tine Central load, to say nothing of
niiiberless other peaks above timber
The bald side of the jountain has
been honeycombed with mine tunnekl
and shafts. Some of the properties
are in tile ''prospect'' stage, whilk
others are paying as high as $500 11
day. Through the mine dumps th(
train th'reads its way, anid soon th<
last switch back has been made an
the last grade climbed. The passen
gers tumble out, and are escorted t(
an abandoned mine whose workings
owing to the dripping of water an<
the constant action of frost, have b4
eome coated with sniow and wit.h ic4
erystals of wonderful formatfion. TIII
gleam of candle light against thes
crystals lialkes a wonderful siglit.
This mine was the first silver min
opened inl Colorado. Ore froill it wa
shipped across the plains by~ox teau
transportation long before the firs
stage coaches were run. The pionee
miners, who are looking for silve
