Tlit-re is a section of the United
States where coral is exceedingly pop
ular as ballast for railroads, cays the
New York Tribuue. American railroad
builders have used nearly every con
ceivable material for roadbed, from
oliil granite to the .shifting sands of
the great southwestern desert, held
together by growing vines. But it re
mained for tlie Florida Fast Coast
railway to coiistriu-t at roadbed out of
material wliW h. aiconliui; to a fashion
note, is growing in popularity as jew
elry. The portion of the Florida road upon
which it has been found feasible to use
coral as ballast is in the extension
from Miami to Key West, along the
Florida keys. The reason for such
use is patent to the student of geology.
1 he kevs through whirli the ronil runs
are composed of it. Coral rock is th
only thing obtainable except by louy
traiispoi tatiom Many of the islets are
a long way from the mainland. 1 tut a
heautiful and exceedingly substantial
roadbed is being constructed out of the
coral rock. It is glistening white, hue
a great band of satin ribbon, on which
the little islands, with their luxuriant
tropical growth, are strung like a neck
lace of emerald beads. It is more
trulv a gem studded b ind, uniting Key
West to the Florida shore.
The road, which was conceived in the
mind of Henry M. Flagler as a part
of ins plan to join Cuba with the Fnit
ed States by an all rail route, is re
markable iu more than one particular.
Much of the roadbed is being construct
ed iu water thirty or more feet deep.
Forests of trees are being used for
piling, and tons upon tons of concrete
are being dumped on top to form u
ubstantial highway through the ocean.
When this uniipie railway is done

He will practically go to sea in a rail

The Western I'acilic railroad is per
fecting plans to enter California, and
when the road is completed it will be
one of the greatest railroad engineer
ing feats in modern times, says a San
Francisco special dispatch to the
jiroouiyn l-.agle. llie engineers in
charge have instructions to keep one
object in view the straightest liu
with the lesist grade. To accompli
tins roity-live tunnels will be Uorcti in
eastern California between Oroville
and I'.eckwith pass. Instead of goin
aroiiml mountains the Western I'acilic
is going tiirtmgh them.
The longest of the tunnels is that at
the head of Spring Garden, twelve
miles east of (Juincy. This is cut under
the ridge dividing the north ami middle
forks of the Feather river. It will be
more than 7,0(MI feet in length wheu
completed. The nejt longest tunnel on
the road will be the one under Heck
with pass. This will be over 4,M)0 feet
in length, and it is being bored at both
ends. The third tunnel will probably

of all. as it will be cut through solid
rock for a distance of l.L'oO feet. This
will be north of Ouincy, on Spanish

Plain Dealer. Hie purpose. is to make
it possible for a flagman to signal his
engineer when he has caught up to
his train after having been back to
give warning while his train was at a
standstill. The caboose whistle will
also lie used for signaling when a stop

of the various railroads which are

than mahogany and which is not af
fected by water, says the New Orleans
Picayune. Dr. Lorenzo Syper, who
is representing the company, said
that the wood had been tried in Mex

the minimum life of a tie of this wood
was fifty years.

studied law and was admitted to the
bar. He went to the Philippines soon
after the outbreak of the Spanish war.
It was not until after the pacinVatioc
of the northern islands had been ef
fected that Pershing came to the front.
When troubles with the Moros eusued
General George W. Davis, command
ing the department ol Mindanao and
Jo!o. wanted an officer of unusual dis
crimination to take command of tho
trops at Uigau. lie knew of no odi
cer of higher grade so well titled for
the task as Pershing and so assigned
the latter to the duty. He set about
his task with alacrity and combining
an indomitable tightintr spirit with a
predilection for diplomacy and tact ac
complished in a few weeks what it
was supposed would require a year or
more to do. Tluugh he led his sol
diers in several sharp battles against
the bolo men. he effected more by
diplomacy and statesmanship than by
force of arms. By a bold dash he cap
tured a fort the Moros had looked up
on as impregnable with the loss of but
three men. Another lrt he captured
without tiring a shot through diplo
matic negotiations, ami he secured the
submission of a powerful religious
leader who was apparently implacably

he was given a position on the general
staff at Washington, sent to Tokyo as
a military attache to study the ma
neuvers of the Russo-Japanese war and
now has been raised to a brigadier gen

Miss Helen Frances Warren, daughter
of Senator Warren of Wvoining, about
two years ago.

ENGLAND'S SEA PERIL
Crumbling of ' Her Shores Now
a Real banger.
MANY THOUSANDS OF ACRES GONE

bo serious has the -gradual but sure
disappearance of England's coast line
become- that a royal commission has
beeu appointed to study the matter and
devise some means to stop the ravages
of the greedy sea, says a London cable
dispatch to the New' York American
and Journal. . It, Is known that places
that were beaches a few years ago now
He beneath the surface of the ocean
and that towns that once were far iu
land are now lapped by the Incoming
Cases of erosion or'eucroachment by
the sea have" long been known in prac
tically all portions of the English coast
line, but the facts that. the progress of
the land destroying ocean Is goiug
steadily on and that the Island Is being
gradually eaten away by the hungry
waves art; now considered seriously.
It has been found that between ISO
and ll0O no less than ISL'.OiHi acres that
once were English territory have beeu
claimed by the iicean as its bed. More
over, the. amount .of annual loss is In
creasing from year to vear. and unless
somethlug Is done to stop the encroach
ment of waters upon-the land it can lie
almost calculated when England shall
have ceased to exist, except as a little
group of rocky Islets. .
Startling as this muy seem, it is far
from being a mere .scientific specula
tion or the alarming cry of some the
orist, but Is rather the unpleasant and
serious fact, that .will soon, it is be
lieved, make the ' saving of England
from the ocean a national problem.
That England might really disappear
from the map of the world can be per
haps appreciated when it Is realized
that all the space that Is now occupied
by the North sea and the English chun
ncl was once dry land. .
Great glaciers that slid down on this
immense territory destroyed the laud
before them and dug a place for the
sea. They divided the lands and
made England, but their melting and
processes of deposit gave her a soft
and insecure coat. The cliffs that seem
impregnable fortresses are as play
things to the incessant lapping of the
Each tide, indeed, takes a bit of Eng
land away with it. Some of the worst
effects of this erosion are to be seen
in Sussex, where Langney fort, just
beyond Eastbourne, is actually falling
into the sea. .The waves have eaten
into the brick foundation of the forti
fications to sucli.au-exteut that this
once valuable piece of coast defense
has been recently abandoned.
It was not many years ago that the
map of the Suffolk coast showed little
bays and jutting iwiints of land. Now
for miles it is straight almost as If
cut with a knife. The site of Duuwich
that once was a prosperous market
town, fs now far out under fathoms
water, and EastAn -Re vent, the most
easterly point in England, is far out
beyond the general const line.
In the southeastern portion of York
shire the greed of the sea seems now
to be at its worst, for there the cliofs
almost crumblo.i as the waves lash
them. What is to be the solution of
the subject is not known at this time.
The commission has hardly entered
Into its work, but the members are de
termined to end the losses of territory
that England is yearly sustaining in
this way. Redemption of laud will be
undertaken as well, and much of the
destruction of recent years will be
made up for.
1'Iern For Jummtonn Fxpoaltlon
IMans were recently apjiroved by
General Mackenzie, chief of engineers,
and the secretary of war for two great
piers which are to be constructed at
the Jamestovn" ' exposition, says a
Washington dispatch to the New York
Tribune. The piers, to be built in con
nection vith each other, will extend
1,500 feet from the exposition grounds
into the waters of Hampton Roads. To
gether the piers will be G0 feet wide.
One of theui-will lie- known as God
speed pier and the other as Susan Con
stant pier. The plans were drawn by
the architects of the exposition and
were revised by, Captain Cosby of the
engineer corps of the army. The con
tract for the construction of the piers
will be let at the earliest possible date,
as the wrork should lie completed not
later than May 1 next. Considerable
dredging will have to be done in the
water in front of ' the exposition
grounds, as it is too shallow now to
permit of the landing of vessels of
even medium" .draft. The piers com
plete will cost 'about $400,000. They
will bear towers equipped with wire
less telegraph apparatus, and the. en
tire piers will be brilliantly lighted by
