ENGINEERING SKILL AND MODERN
M.ny Ad.lltlon. DrinK Recent Year, to
the "Seven Wonder, of the World."
Kilw, Bridge Canal, and Tunnel.
Which Almost Appall TJa.
For rati jnal projecte the time was never
as f aroral le as now. Chief among the con
dttionswHch make -access for injanee
ing work s the low rate of Interest An
other favorable cirenmstence is the im
provemenB of engineering devices. The
Erie canal was dug in the old way, with
hand shovel and tipcart. The modem en
gineer excavates with a steam shovel
freeses quicksand solid with chemicals and
cuts it ont in blocks; dilutes clay into a
soupy hq ,id and lifts it with a suction
pump; carries away his refuse to the-dump
in hangln ? cars, which, propelled by cables
upon win rope tramways, surmount all
obstacles easily. An advantage which is
only beginning to be understood is the
electrical transmission of power, doing
away wit i shafting and belting. High ex
plosives v.-ere never so cheap and effective.
By modern methods to dig the channel
tunnel between England and France would
be an easy task and so profitable that cap
ital woul 1 be ready to undertake it at any
time but for the objection of the Chavvin
istson e ther side, who imagine an inva
sion thro lgh a hole in the ground danger
ous in wartime. An East river tunnel is
projected both above and below the Walla
bout cun-e, but though cheap and practi
cable thf- purpose of the former will be
more pleiisantly met by bridges. The new
Cascade tunnel at Stevens' pass, Washing
ton, will be 13,178 feet long, but will cost
only $2,OX),000. The cost per mile of the
Hoosiic tannel was much greater.
For til crossing of rivers and straits
bridges i re more in favor than tnnnels in
today's engineering. Cheaper steel means
an immense economy in construction. The
Firth of Forth bridge has two spans, each
longer than that of the Brooklyn bridge,
heavier and bigger in every way, but
its cost was practically the same. No
engineering difficulties, only financial,
stand in the way of three more East river
bridges and two over the Hudson. Men
living, and not young, will see them built,
and pcrliaps one over the Narrows so that
a man eun drive entirely about New York
bay. The grandest bridge project in con
teniplnt on and so seriously contemplated
that considerable money has been spent in
prelimii.nry plnns is that of a bridge over
the English channel above the highest
masts, its passing and repassing trains
cheating the tumbling sea of its tribute.
After such a flight of the engineering
foresight ordinary railroads seem tame.
Still tht "backbone line" would be worth
attention if It were to get beyond a senti
mental dea. If built from Chili to Den
ver, with branches, it would be the longest
railroad in the world and would pass the
finest sjeuery. More to the point is the
great trimssilxTian railroad which Russia
is pushing to completion. If only an Amer
ican roid to Alaska were to meet it at
Behrin's strait, people bound for Euroje
could g "the other way round" and shun
seasickness. But the Alaskan road is far
in the future. More immediately impor
tant is the way in which Asia itself is lie
coming accessible. Think of railroading
from B itoom to Tiflis and Bakoo, crossing
the Caspian in a swift 6teamer and on by
rail nain to Smarcand! Of climbing
by rail from Calcutta to the Hin
doo Koosh! Of journeying from Joppa
to Jer :salem iu tow of a teakettle on
wheels Of long railway lines already
in Jap 19, whose treaty ports were so re
cently blown open with gunpowder, and
'others soon to some in China. Even in
Europ , the new Bosnian railroad opens a
land waere traveling 10 years ago was dan
gerous because of banditti. Soon long re
sisting black Africa will be cut in quarters
by rail .vay lines from the Congo, the Nile,
Zanzib ir and the cape, all reaching out to
ward t-ie rich heart of the dark continent
melon. From the Congo and the Nile the
rails are already lengtheninu. Cecil Rhodes,
a true man of destiny, will see Mashona
land end the enpe united before he dies,
and Zi nzibar is the nearest coast of all.
Cam Is are again in fashion. The great
proble n of civilization is to lift a pound of
iron or flour here and set it dow n yonder at
the leit possible expense. So the canal
comes again to its own placid but important
sphere. I'aris will le a seaport, following
the e perience of Manchester, whose bap
tism of salt cannot be delayed beyond nest
year. Fnuice designs also to cut a 27,U'-foot
channel from the Bay of Biscay to theMedi
terran jan, following the river courses from
Borde iux to Narbonne. To save a much
smalh r distance England will onednycanal
from 'Gloucester through Shakespearelaud
to the Lincoln fens, and perhaps from Man
chestt r east to the Ilumber.
In o jr own country there are waterways
pressi lgly needed which would long ago
have been liegtm but for the timidity and
consei vatism of republics. These are too
familiar to need more than a recapitulation
an inshore canal from Massachusetts bay
to the gulf of Mexico, following natural
waterways much of the way and always
through soft, alluvial soil; a ship canal
from the lake3 to the Hudson; another
pouri lg the waters of Luke Michigan into
tho Mississippi through the long needed
llenn 'pin canal. No great work is so easy
as thi i. There is only 8 or 10 feet height of
land 10 cut through, and confluents of the
Illinois mark the natural outlet but 10
miles back of the White City.
Rut laiming waste places is a particularly
attractive task to dwell upon. Such a work
is lb Hand's draining of the Zuydcr Zee,
which will be accomplished within a few
years, and which is no heavier task under
present conditions than was the reclaiming
of tLe Haarlem meer, where now fertile
farms lie 40 feet below the sea level. More
remote than this is the proposed dam at
Lake Albert Nyanza, which, by impound
ing t io surplus water of the Nile for dry
seasons, will oue day make Egypt again
blossjm as the rose. Even as our own
"Greit American Desert" has vanished
from tho maps will the Saharah waste one
day t brink as the oases and fertile borders
prest upon it until there is nothing left
but (Teen. But much sooner must the Mis
sissippi problem be solved, not by building
higher the impotent levees, but by holding
its upper waters in reservoirs, where they
may be used for irrigation and never reach
the i;ulf at all nor drop their destructive silt
alon its yearly rising channel. JohnL.

WHAT ONE ACRE WILL YIELD
The Limit Trobsbly Ceached by Land In
New York's First Ward.
An acre of land is 4.840 square yards 01
9.560 square feet. It is the ordinary meas
fcre of ground among farmers and surveyors
but the earning capacity of acres varies
considerably. About the simplest use, in
volving the least skill and labor, to which
an acre ot land may be put is to the grow
ing of trees upon it. This requires nx
capital, but patience, and yields on tht
average 3.25per acre a year. Then there
are the fruits of husbandry and farming,
Rained through toil and cultivation, and
greatest of course in the rolling prairies ot
virgin lowlands of the west and northwest.
But taking farming lands nearer home,
in New York state, these are found to be
the net returns per acre: Rye, 18.50; oats,
til; wheat, flo; barley, tl7; corn,tl8; peas,
t7; sweet potatoes, t75; spinach, tSO; wa
termelons, $81; grapes, 122; currants, $120;
cabbage, $133; beets, $150; peaches, $150;
strawberries, $150; tomatoes, $165; musk
melons, $158; asparagus, $183, and celery,
$214- The adaptability of the land for such
products varies, and the value of an acre
corresponds with such variance. The per
ishable crops are subject to great damage
and require usually more cultivation and
Taking 10 feet as the average width of a
railroad bed, 4,8Txi feet of track would com
prise, stretched out in a s traight line, an
acre of land. This is more than four-fifths
of a mile of railroad. The portion of the
Pennsylvania road between New York and
Philadelphia is generally acknowledged
among railroad men to have the largest
gross earnings of any in the world, with the
two exceptions of the New York elevated
and the London underground. But taking,
as fairer for the purpose, the whole Penn
sylvania system, it is found thattheannual
gross receipts amount to about $100,000,000
for the 2,5(10 miles of track operated. Of
this total $37,600,000 is net receipts. Ia
other words, this railroad system earns
$15,000 a mile net, or $12,500 an acre, and
the latter figure niay,j-' given as the high
est earning capacity or an acre of land given
over to railroad transportation. This is a
high figure. It is greater than the gains
from either forestry or husbandry, but it
shrinks into unimportance compared with
the revenue yielded by an acre of New York
city real estate.
The area of New York cily, including the
two wards beyond the Harlem river, is
nearly 25,000 acres. That tranquil stream
divides territorially the town into two al
most eqnal paris, there being 12,576 acres
south and 12,317 acres north of it. The
most valuable part of the city of New York
is the First ward, lying south of Liberty
street and Maiden lane and covering 154
acres. The assessed value of its real estate
is $S9,000,000. When to thi is added the
value of land exempt from taxation, which
is $-.20,0110,000, and allowance is made for the
difference between assessed and the actual
values, it appears that the real estate of
this territory is worth not less than $155,
000,000, or at the rate of $1,000,000 an acre,
which is probably larger than the value of
any other piece of real estate in the United
States. At 5 per cent on the amount of
capital represented the annual revenue
from real estate in the First ward of the
city of New York is $50,000 a year per acre.
That is the highest point, and these, t hen,
are the figures: Forest land, $2. 5 an acre;
farming land, $20 to $l.V); rail roid bed,
$ 12,000; New York real estatt, business sec
tion, $50.0i)0. New York Sun.
Abont the Silk Threads In Hank Notes.
The paper npon which bank nott-s nre
printed is called "distinctive paper" be
cause used exclusively by the government
for printing bonds and notes. The mills
where it is mn.nufactured .-.re located at
Glen Falls, Westchester county, N. Y. An
agent of th treasury department j-ieives
the paper direct from the hands of the
manufactui er, and great care is taken to
keep any of it from ljeing lost or stolen.
The silk threads in the makeup of this pa
per are accounted fur in this way:
When it is in process of manufacture,
clippings of red silk thread are mixed with
the pulp i:i a big tank. The partially fin
ished material is tht 11 conducted to a wire
cloth without passing through the usual
"screen," as that would retain the bits of
thread. Next an arrangement situated
above the wire cloth carrying the paper
pulp scatters a shower of blue silk clippings
upon the paper while it is yet moist, after
which it is passed through a roller or set of
rollers. The side upon which this blue silk
shower falls is used for the backs of the
notes, each particular thread being so deep
ly imbedded by the roller pressure as to
make tho surface of the sheet perfectly
smooth. The other side of the paper, that
upon which the red threads predominate,
is used for the "face" of the note. Each of
these sheets, even though they are "blanks,"
is numbered and registered as soon as fin
ished. Philadelphia Press.

A Great Day For Klaslng.
Halmagen, a Roumanian country town of
1.200 inhabitants, holds its annual fair on
the Feast of St. Theodore. On this occa
sion the place swarms wit h newly married
brides from some 60 to 80 villages in the
district. Widows who have taken fresh
hnsbands remain at home. The young
women in festive attire, and generally at
tended by their mothers-in-law, carry
jugs of wine inwreathed with flowers in
their hands. They kiss every one they
meet, and afterward present the jug to his
lips for a "nip." The individual thus re
galed bestows a small gift on the fair Cy
bcle. Not to partake of the proffered wine
is regarded ns an insult to the young wife
and her family. She is therefore reserved
toward strangers and only kisses those
whom she thinks likely to taste of her wine.
The kissing is carried on everywhere in
the street, in the taverns and in private
The origin of this custom veiled in ob
scurity. Some say that it di.T.- back to the
time when the Turks made frequent raids
into Transylvania and carried away all the
young women they could lay their hands
on. Such of them as contrived to escape
from captivity, happening to return to
Halmagen at the time of the fair, kissed
their friends and relatives and even stran
gers who congratulaleil them on their won
derful deliverance. Rumanische Wocheu

To Mr. W. M. Evarts belongs the anec
dote of the lierenved widow whose husband
had such a large circle of friends that the
company which she received ou the evening
of his interment crowded her drawing room
almost to suffocation. A lady friend of the
widow edged her way up to her, and point
ing to something very bright ami shining
visible above the heads of the assembly in
a remote corner of the apartment, whis
pered in her ear: "Say, is that a new 8-day
clock? What d'ye gi'n for sich?" "It's not
a clock," sobbed the disconsolate widow,
"it's the dear departed. We sot him on
eend to make room for more company."
The supposed 8-day clock was indeed the
"casket," richly ornamented with silver
nails, bosses and handles, to which the dear
departed had been consigned--7G. A. Sala
