THE MOLIJXE WAT BR WALL
Ca.pt. lyan'a Petls i Protect
the Ualwarlt From Daaaasr.as Frna
It has been decided to use the hardest
concrete to pretjet the Moline water
power's wall from the damages likely to
occur from the ice, and much praise is
heard of Capt Lyn for his precautions
in tais respect. Tbe Republican Jour
nal of last evening says of it:
Some time ago it was noticed that the
weather was seriously affecting tbe Mo
line portion of tbe water power wall.
Ibe Joliet stone, of whicb it is built, is a
limestone, or kind of marble, and is not
homogeneous, but thoroughly stratified.
Tbe water enters between tbe strata, and
tbe freezing it is subjected to there' pro
duces sufficient expansion to start tbe
saams, as it were. Tbis gives room for
tbe entrance of a Urge quantity of
water at tbe first opportunity, and tbe
silent but tremendous energy of tbe ice
expansion bas shattered tbe stout blocks
in a sad manner, during tbe 20 years the
wall bas stood. There are some places
where the spawls enter tbe wall to the
depth of a foot or eren more, and these
gaps have recently been permitting tbe
water to penetrate to the inside of tbe
wall itself. It could not be long till the
work would be ruined and in need of ex
tensive and expensive repairs, it not of
Noting tbis Capi Lyon called in Civil
Engineer Francis and asked bim to ex-
emine the work and the injury to it, and
see what could be done to save lU Mr.
Francis submitted estimates on a plan in
volving tbe use of boiler iron plates and
concrete. The contemplated cost was
f 14 000. This was more money than
could be placed in this work at this lime,
and it was obvious that it must be done
while the pool was drained, or that an
other cofferdam muBt be built at a large
cost for the express purpose of this repair
work. Air. Francis then submitted a
plan for using concrete and pUnkicg,
estimated y cost $3,500. Tbis was ac
cepted, and tbe work was begun with bim
It is now well under way, something
like half of the 2 200 feet of the will hav
ing received the protection of this facing.
Tbe work will be finished in another
week unless interfered with by the
weather. Tbe p'.an is simple. Holes
are drilled into the wall to a good holding
depth, and into them are inserted stout
iron bolls. These are seated in lead ao
they cannot puH out and threads are cut
o i tbe outer extremities. To these bolts
are fastened timbers, and on these tim
bers are placed pUnks two inches thick
and several inches wide. These planks
are dressed at tbe edtes so as to form the
tight st kind of a board fence, and
there is a space of several inches Selwien
it and tbe wall. Tbe fence is nine and a
half feet high. It extends down to the
rock bottom on which the wall rests, and
is above the winter stage of tbe water in
the pool. Tbe space behind it is
blocked off at intervals of a few feet with
bsards ioserted between the fence and
the wall, and one by one these separate
spaces are filled with a hard hydraulic
concrete, tbe essential constituent of
which is Portland cement. Tnis sets and
hardens in a short time and effectually
stuls the water away from tbe wall. Tbe
cement itself is not injured by any
amount of freezing after i: has set, and
the outer facing of planks is sufficient to
prevent the temperature to which it is
exposed going down to the temperature
of the external atmosphere in severe
When Gen. Flagler was bere a short
time ago, a plank was taken off one of
tbe sections first filled. The concrete
behind it was already as bard as tbe
stone hebind itself, and rang when struck
as though it were a part of the rock.
Tbe pi tnk'ng will last a number of years.
being most or the time under water, and
til hands are confident that the wall will
be defended against tbe further ravages
of the elements. The iron front first
considered would have fix:d the thing for
an indefinite time, and it 1b to be regretted
that there was not enough money at hand
to make use of it.
The Moline manufacturers, however,
are grateful to Capt. Lyon for his prompt
action in "making a stitch in time."

Afraid of Heconilna; famous.
A manuscript reader for a leading maga
zine says: "The magazine with which I am
connected employed a well known female
writer to write up an interesting phase of
life six years ago, for which she was to re
ceive a stipulated sum of money. When
her article was submitted the editor didn't
like it and sent it back, but she fired it
back again, demanding pay, and got it.
The article was pigeonholed, and no one
thought of it axain until a short time ago,
when the editor resurrected it and had it
put in type, .'orKetting all about its origin.
It appeared iu a recent uumlier of the
magazine, and was discussed by liu-rary
people as beins one of the best written
articles published by the magazine in ques
tion. The editor of another magazine wr.s
attracted by the article and wroto to the
lady asking her to submit matter to him.
The writer appears to be a very spirited
young woman, however, and refused to do
to, saying that one experience with a mag
azine editor is enough. She says she will
never write for them again. If she did
she might become famous. She confines
her efforts to newspaper work." New

A tVundrrful Gold Mine.
One of tho wonders of Australia, ami
one of tbe greatest natural curiosities in
the world, is the Mount Morgan gold mire
iu Queensland. The precious metal con
tained in this mine, which has paid a divi
dend of not less than $8,000,000 iu a year,
was deposited by a hot spring.
Mount Morgan is a hill about 500 feet
high, containing at its top a cup shaped
deposit made by the hot spring which
once gushed out there, and in this deposit
the gold exists. Truly a cup of Croesus!
Through untold ages the waters dropped
their glittering ' burden, and now man
comes and extracts the boarded metal to
add to the wealth of the world.
Specimens of the ore from this strange
mine have been sent to the United States,
that they might be compared with the de
posits of the great hot springs iu our own
Yellowstone park. It was but natural to
suppose that the Yellowstone springs had
also a golden treasure in their cups, but
the most careful search by geologists has
thus far failed to detect any trace of it.
