The Panama Canal
Birdseye View Showing Route of the Great
Waterway Now Nearing Completion
ACCORDING to present plans, water wl.l bo let Into the new Panama
canal on July 1. The first boat will enter In September. Going from

side of the Isthmus of Panama at a small suburb called Cristobal
Seven miles Inland it comes to tho Gatun locks. These lift the boat to a
level of cighty.-fivo feet above the sen. This level Is maintained across tho
famous Gatun artificial lakes and through tho Culebra cut to the Pedro Miguel
(called Peter McGlll by American workmen) locks thirty-nine miles from tho
Atlantic ocean and eleven miles from tho Pacific ocean. Tho Pedro Miguel
and Mlrafiores locks lower the boat to the Pacific sea level. . Thence it goes to
the other terminus, called La Boca, the Spanish words for mouth, a suburb of
tho City of Panama?
Tho odd sonsatlon will be given a traveler when he rides through the canal
from Colon to Panama of going south and cast Instead of west, and when he
rises the next day in Panama he will find that, because Panama Is on a point
of land jutting out Into tho ocean, the sun l>oth rises and sets in the Pacific.
In Its course the canal Is made to follow generally the valleys of the Mindl and
Ohngrea rivers on tho north or Atlantic side and the Rio Grande on the south
or Pacific slope.
It crosses the height of land at the deep cut In Culebra hill between
tho two oceans about fourteen miles from the Pacific. Culebra, the lowest
