The grade stakes of the surveyed rail
road line will be reset and everything'
will be placed in readiness for the con
tractors, who will do the earth and rock
work grading: and build the two bridges
along the rightofway from the Santa Fe
main line to the damsite. The govern
' ment engineers will also build the foun-
dations for the two railroad bridges be-
frkvt 1 nnrt to trrc &crn Tt-rT-l iti rtl
I der to allow the concrete to set before
the bridges are built.
To Build Road This Year.
The plans and specifications for the
railioad construction, work, which is
now being advertised in Washington, do
not specify the time limit in which the
railroad construction work is to be fin-
' ished but this clause is left blank in
the bid and the contractor will be per
mitted to fix his own time for finish
I mg, the time element to be a factor in
awarding the contract. Engineer XV.
M. Reed, of the district 'reclamation
office, estimates that the work will be
done by Jan. 1 and the trains running
over it. He thinks that four months
should be timo enough for the con
tractors to complete the grading and
bridge building work and an additional
two months for the railroad company to
lay the ties and steel and get the roll
ing stock to running well over the rail
road. Line to Damsite.
The line to the damsite will leave
the main line of the Santa Fe C miles
south of Engle at a station, which for
lack of a better name has been desig
nated on the maps as "The Junction."
The distance from this point to the
damsite, according to the surveys is
10 V miles. But such a 10 miles! Up
i hill and down, through rock walls and
over grades 50 feet down. These are
some of the obstacles the grading con
tractors will have to face when the
rightofway is tackled. One of the rock
cuts is eight miles from The Junction.
It will be 40 feet through solid rock
and hard pan at that. There are three
of these big cuts, having a total yard
age of 45,000 yards.
The plans and specifications are
divided into three schedules, one for
the earth work on the east end of the
line, the second on the rock work on
the westend, including the three cuts
and as many fills, and the third is the
bridge work. The contractors are giv
en the privilege of bidding on either
the entire contract or on each schedule.
Taking: in the Machinery.
As soon as the Santa Fe, which has
the contract for putting down the steel
and ties, has completed the line to the
dam, the heavy machinery and mater
ials to bp used in the construction of
the dam proper will be hauled over
I the new road. A passenger coach will
be atatched to the freight trains to
carry passengers from the main line to
the damsite. The hauling of materials
will require until spring when work on
the excavations for the foundation of
the bier dam will begin as soon as next
t spring's floods are over.
A LINIMENT FOR EXTERNAL USE.
Cheerfulness and a bright disposition during the months "before "baby comes,
are among the greatest blessings a mother can bestow upon the little life about
to begin. Her happiness and physical comfort will largely govern the proper
development of the health and "nature of tho child. Mother's Friend contributes
much to the mother's happiness andnealth by the relief and mental comfort it
affords. It is a liniment composed of penetrating oils and medicines which
lubricate the muscles and tendons of the body, soothe the swollen mammary
glands, cause a gradual expansion of the skin and tissues, and aid in the relief
of nausea. The regular use of Mother's Friend greatly lessens the pain and
danger when baby comes, and assures a quick and natural recovery for the

Of an able ministry, headed by the
referable Count Halfont. The Duke
of Perse, for years a. resident of St. Pe

after the distressing death of the late
Princess Yetive and her American hus
band, and to him was intrusted the

government from heavy losses or even
The opening of this narrative finds
the ministry preparing to float a new
5,000,000 gawo Issue of bonds for con
strnetion and equipment purposes, j
Agents of the government were ready
to depart for London and Paris to take
up the matter with the great banking
houses. St. Petersburg and Berlin were
not to be given the opportunity to gob
ble np these extremely fine securities.
This seemingly extraordinary exclu
sion of Russian and German bidders
was the result of vigorous objections
raised by an utter outsider, the Ameri
can, John Tullis. long time friend and
companion of Grenfall Lorry, consort
to the late princess.
Tullis was a strange man in many
particulars. He was under forty years
of age. but even at that rather imma
ture time of life he had come to be
recognized as a shrewd, successful
financial power in his home city. New
York. At the very zenith of his pow
er he suddenly and with quixotic dis
regard for consequences gave up his
own business and came to Graustark
for residence, following a promise
made to Grenfall Lorry when the lat
ter lay dying in a little inn near Brus
sels. They had been lifelong friends. Tul
lis jestingly called himself the little
prince's "morganatic godfather." For
two years he had been a constant resi
dent of Graustark.
His wide awake, resourceful "-
! attuned by nature to the difiiculties of
administration, lent itself capably to
the solving of many knotty "financial
puzzles; the ministry was never loath
to call on him for advice and seldom
disposed to disregard it An outsider,
he never offered a suggestion or plan
unasked. To this single qualification
he owed much of the popularity and
esteem in which he was held by the
classes and the masses. Socially he
was a great favorite. He enjoyed the
freedom of the most exclusive homes
There was but one man connected
with the government to whom the pop
ularity and influence of John Tullis
proved distasteful. That man was the
Duke of Perse. On more than one
occasion the cabinet had chosen to be
guided by the sagacity of John Tullis
in preference to following the lines
laid down by the astute "minister of
finance. The decision to offer the new
bond Issue in London and Paris was
due to the earnest, forceful -argument
of John Tullis outside the cabinet
chamber, to be sure. This was but
one instance in which the plan of the
treasurer was overridden. He resent
ed the plain though delicate influence
of the former "Wall street man. Tullis
had made it plain to the ministry that
Graustark could not afford to place it
self in debt to the Russians, into whose
hands sooner or later the destinies of
the railroad might be expected to fall.
The wise men of Graustark saw his
point without force of argument and
voted down in the parliament the
duke's proposition to place the loan in
St. Petersburg and Berlin. For this
particular act of trespass upon the
duke's official preserves he won the
hatred of the worthy treasurer and his
no inconsiderable following among the
But John Tullis was not in Edel
weiss for the purpose of meddling
with state affairs. He was there be
cause he elected to stand mentor to
the son of his lifelong friend, even
though that son was a prince of the
blood and controlled by the will of
three regents chosen by his own sub
jects. To say that the tiny prince loved
his big. broad shouldered, ruddy cheek
ed, adoring mentor would be putting
it too gently; he idolized him. Tullis
was father, mother and big brother
to the little fellow in knickers.
One woman in Graustark was the
source of never ending and constantly j
increasing interest to- this stalwart
companion to the prince. That woman
was. alas, the wife of another man!
Moreover, she was the daughter of
the Duke of Perse.
The young and witty Countess of
Marlanx came often to Edelweiss. She
was a favorite at the castle, notwith
standing the unhealthy record of her
ancient and discredited husband, the
Iron Count. Tullis had not seen the
count, but he had heard such tales of
him that he could not but pity this
glorious young creature who called

table, perched upon an augmentary

had peeled his nose while sliding to

game that hewas teaching the juve

About the table sat the three regents
and the other men high in the adminis
tration of affairs, among them Gen
eral Braze of the army. Baron Pultz
of the mines' Roslon of agriculture.
The Duke of Perse was discussing the
great loan, questions The prince was
watching his gaunt, saturnine face
with more than usual interest.
"Of course it is not too late to rescind
the order promulgated at our last sit

Petersburg who will finance the loan
without delay. We need not delay the
interminable length of time necessary
to secure the attention and co-operation
of bankers in France and Eng

Russia has sinister motives in the mat

DISORDERLY RIP SfAYv RIPS
OFF THUMBS OF TWO 3IEX
There is a rip saw in the new Schutz
building on San Francisco street that
.hasn't a bit of shame. It is the rip
pingest rip saw of local rip saw history.
To begin with, this particular rip
saw bit F. T. Fuller when he was feed
ing boards into the machine last Mon
day. Fuller's good right hand was badly
lacerated, and his right thumb was
amputated. That should have satis
fied any self respecting, gentlemanly
rip saw. But it didn't.
No later than Wednesdaj-, the Sohutz
building saw got another fit of finger
chopping. This time it was Edward
Morloe, who had taken Fuller's place
au the saw, and that workman today is
mourning the loss of a right thumb.
So it transpires that Dr. W. B. Urm
ston has two thumbs (besides his own)
each from the right hand, and each
amputated as the result of what an un
grateful rip saw did to the hand that

met violent death Wednesday after
noon in front of the Morgan building
on Mesa avenue. The accident was
In violation of ladylike conduct, the
mare was scratching herself oh an iron
post as she stood hitched to a buggv.
So violent were her contortions that
the hoofs slipped, and Lady Nickotine
fell upon the post. The iron rod
pierced the horse's side, pinning the
animal to the pavement.
Equine screams soon attracted a
crowd, and patrolman Tillman shot the
animal with his revolver. It -took more
than half an hour for workmen to draw
out the post so that the body could be
removed from the street. It was neces
sary to pull the post from the ground
and through the side of the animal's
body, which it had completely pierced.
Lady Nickotine appeared for the last
time as a running horse on the "Wash
ington park track last season. She was
purchased some time ago by the Globe
Mills and shortly previous to the death
was hitched to the post, by TV. C
Winkler, of that company.

It goes without saying that the inno
cent rejoinder opened the way to an
acrid i discussion of John Tuilis. If
that gentleman's ears burned in re
sponse to the sarcastic comments of
the Duke of Perse and Baron Pultz,
they probably tingled pleasantly as the
result of the stout defense put up by
Halfont, Dangloss and others.
The duke's impassioned plea was of
no avail. His confreres saw the wis
dom of. keeping Russia's greedy hand
out of the country's affairs at least
for the present and reiterated their
decision to seek the loans in England
and France, The question, therefore,
would not be taken to parliament for
reconsideration. The duke sat down,
pale in defeat; his heart was more bit
ter than ever against the shrewd
American who had induced all these
men to see through his eyes.
