ALONG THE HENNEPIN CANAL
Large Fort-oof Men and Tram Ktnployi-il
on tlie Works.
The Princeton Record savs that
along the Hennepin canal from Tis-
kiiwa to Wyanet the works on the
canal present a busy scene. At Tis
kilwa most of the evacuation work is
finished, but several locks are to be
built in that vicinity, which means
employment for a. large force of men
for some time to come, hast t and
near Wyanet along the Rock Island
railroad are high hills through which
the canal passes. This means months
of labor in excavating and in that
locality hundreds of men and teams
are busy at work. Along the creek
there is a canvas town, many new
arrivals being added to it tile past
week. The tents look comfortable.
The men ami teams are in good con
dition, and the contractors are mak
ing headway on the big ditch. Stand
ing on one of the hills, the sp -clator
h:is an interesting view of the work,
teams and men being visible as far as
the eve can reach.
