from those ordinarily u s e d
hereabouts in that they are so
much larger and have a track on
which the crane can be turned
from the engine. These stones
weigh from one to four toas. the
smaller stones all being crushed
for the concrete work, and are
obtained from the island of rock
provided by nature or from the
excavations in the canal. Here
it may be noted that the work of
excavating this canal is fraught
with many more obstacls than
were first anticipated. T h e
contracting company undertaking
this work has already thrown up
the sponge, though the contract
price for the same was about
These immense stones are, held
in place by tons and tons of
concrete mixture, consisting of
one part of cement, three of sand
and six of small stone. There
ingredients are hauled in little
cars, that readily dump their
- whole load into the shute below,
which is divided into manp
apartments or lines. - Tnder
neath are carts on tracks which
are filled by pulling back a little
docr and which hold just exactly
two tons of this mixture. The
cart is then rolled by two men to
the concrete mixer, from which
the -mixture is dumped into a
large metallic bucket holding just
two tons. As an idea of the
rapidity with which this part, of
the work is done less than three
minutes is required for getting
. these two tons of the best con
crete mixture for~m its place in
the bins in the sbute to the tor
of the dam, where it is to be used.
Only about five or six men. are
required in the whole operation.
Up to date 3000 carloads o:
cement have bee3n used. These
cars would fill a track from the
Falls to Winnsb:>ro and a con
siderable distanc e beyond. The
sacks that have b en emnptied
fill three cars irc m bottom to top.
All this great work moves or
like a clock. The necessary and
most approved appliances a n d
expert supervision are -the secret.
Though there are several com
panies engaged in different parts
of this construction and eacb
with its own machinery there is
not the slightest friction. One
can not but be impressed with
this fact and the further fact that
there is no loud talking on the
part of the superintendents or the
workmen. There is not half the
noise here thb.t is often heard ini
some cotton patch with only five
or six men picking. Everybody
is at work, doing what they are
well paid for. It is a lesson in
self control and the control of
others to see how these hundreds
of laborers are managed s o
But the Falls is too big a
subject for one time. The im
mensity of this stupendous ur der
taking of bringing all this power
into use far and near can not be
appreciated without seeing the
Works themselves. It is well worth
the day or more it may take one
to get a bird's eye view of what
is going on here. The litge has

A feature that added no lttle
to our enjoyment of this dlay at
the Falls was that we, (this is
more than the editorial we) had
as our companions Mr. and Mrs.
H. 0. Graf ton at whose delightful
home six miles away we had
spent the night before. They are
indeed charming hosta.
