J. B. Eads' Old Tehuantepeo Project Has Been Revived Under New Auspices. The Mexican Government Said to Be Ready With a Liberal Subsidy. It Is Necessary to That Country to Create a Rival to the Southern Canal Routes. WasnfmeTon, April 20.-Mexico has not yet given up her hope of competing with Nicaragua and Colombia to furnish the ship route of the future between the Atldn tie and the Pacific. The disadvantage in breadth under which the isthmus of Te huantepec labors is very great, when it comes to a question of cutting a ca.Ral; but Mexico's project is to substitute the device of a ship railway. If vessels can be ssfely raised out of the water, placed on a cradle, run by locomotive engines along a track. and then lowered again into the sea, a few miles more of track is a matter of minor consequence. The revived project has been taken up by Messrs. Corthell, Hampson and Stanhope, of whom the first named has been for some time employed by Mexico in making harbor improvements. It is said that the government has$2,000,000 ready as a subsidy for a company bold enough to undertake this work. Of course, with the Nicaragua project so well advanced, an attempt to compete for interocaanic traffic by a ship railway at Tehuantepec is more heavily handicapped now than it was ten years ago, when Mr. James B. Ends was at the head of the en terprise. But as an offset it would hardly fear a rival in the Panama project, which was then going on busily, with a large sup ply of funds. The idea of the transportation of ships by rail has long been entertained. It was suggested when the Panama railroad was undertaken. More than a quarter of a cen tury ago it was proposed as a method of conveying vessels between the Mediterran ean and the bay of Biscay in order to avoid the long route by way of the straits of Gibraltar. lint the striking and stupcnd ous scheme of Mr. lads, brought out in 1882, was not a mere conception, but an elaborately studied plan. It attracted attention by its audacity, and rerhaps the chief reason why it was not more stren uously pushed was its being so experi mental in character. It seemed hardly worth while to undertake on so prodigious a soale, and with such risk of total failure, what could be essayed by the device of the oanal, made familiar by ages of ongineor ing. However, so far as Mexico is con oerned, it seems to be that or nothing, in order to create at Tehrantepeo a rival to the southern canal routes. Looking only at the interest of the pres eat enterprise, it seems a pity that the Chigneoto bay project has not been rushed to completion. There an illustration would be furnished on a small mscae, anud with comparatively little capital I at risk, of what is to be undertaken on a tremendous scale at l'ehuantepec. Still another project in ship lifting and trns- I portation was that of connectin Georgian Bay with Lake Ontario by a track sixty-aix miles long, although for this a cltalu has been proposed as a substitute. Bit the ship railway aeroes the na- ow isthmus be tween Chlgneeto Bay, mat.e head of the Bay of Fundy, and Northumberland Straits, has long been under construction. It is I now suspended for lack of funds, and it would possibl almost pay any company undertaking the Tehuantepec project to in sure the completion of the Ohignecto enter prise by way of experiment. There is little doubt that when Mr. Eads' undertaking was before congress a part of the remarka ble conflict of opinion between not only capitalists but civil engineers, ship builders, and naval architects was due to the exigen cies of that scheme as well as to the general question of the feasibility of ship railways. Now the Chignecto railway, to begin with, is only seventeen miles long, whereas the one at Tehuantepeo was to be at least 130 miles. The difference in level between the two ends on the Chignecto line, which lies at the boundary of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, is only about forty-seven feet, with no engineering difficulties of consequence along the line. But at Te huantepec there is the great mountain chain of the Cordilleras to cross, ships having apparently to be carried over an el evation of 750 feet. It would also be pos sible to try the hydraulio lifts provided for Ohignecto bay, which, as heretofore stated in these columns, are designed to handle a vessel of 2,000 tons, as thus described in a British technical journal: There are on each side twenty hydraulic rams of twenty-five-inch diameter. On the top of the ram is a cross head, from which hang two links joined at their lower end with immense iron girders, forming a "gridiron" 235 feet long and sixty feet wide. When a ship is to be lifted the grid iron is allowed to rest on the bottom of the dock and the vessel floated immedi ately over it. Then, by the raising of the rams, the gridiron is lifted, and, being fitted with it cradle suited to the ship, it rests on them, being wedaed up on either side pretty much the same way as a craft ready for launchling. With this mechan ism a vessel of 240 feet length and sixty-one feet width, drawing sixteen feet, and weighing in all 2,000 tons, may be lifted forty feet in twenty minutes. A double line of rails is laid on the gridiron, and it is on this that the cradle is fitted. The cra dies are made of steel girders resting on bogies runninc on a double line of rails, and under a ship of 2,030 tons there will run 192 solid wheels of three feet diame ter, formed in sections seventy-five feet long, and each havino sixty-four wheels. Admiral Ammen, who, to be sure, could not be considered an unprejudiced author ity, being at the head of a rival enterprise, considered it a fatal objection to the proj ect of Mlr. Eads that the height of the lowest mountain pass was 754 feet and the grade, at the maximum, 105 feet per mile. One cut proolsed had a depth of 312 feet and a base" of 2,500, requiring the excavation of about 4,000 i(K0 cubic yards, which wucld cost about $6,000,1000 and occupy six years. Mr. Eade' own estimate of the total cost of the railway was 72,000).000, but its op ponents thought this very far below the real expecnsr'. On the other side it was urged that by a few turns the heavy grades, deep cuts and costly fillings mentioned by Admiral Ammon would be avoided; but he says that this could only be done by an eno ucous turn-table, of vast cost, on ac count of its foundations. It is also asserted that since curves cannot be used as on r.n ordinary railrorad. several such turn-tables would be required. However, in order to obtain any true idea of tbhe .l aotieability of a l'ehnaantoitec railway it will be necessary first to have tihe route carefully laid out, and thtn it will be seen what peaks are to be avoided and what grades to be overcome. The start would perhaps be, as in the Eada scheme, from the head of navigation on the Co',tzacoalcos, with a terminus on the Paciffic in the legion of iltlmna Cruz or La Vroesntu, The best salve in the world for cute, bruises, croes, ulcers, salt rheunm, fever sores, totter, chapped hands, chilblains, corns and all skin eruptions, and positively cures plies, or no c ay required.

"There are drugs which are ten (times more costly than gold," said an apothecary to a reporter of the St. Louis Globe-Demo orat. "You look surprised. Let me give you a couple of samples. Cocaine is a very common drug to-day. What do you think it cost a few years ago?" The re porter could not give an answer. "When first put on the market its price was $1.25 a rain. Just calculate that. Gold is worth V20 an ounce. Now, there are 437, grains in a commerefalounce; therefore, the ounce of cocaine cost about $545-or, to be ac curate, $546.87X. That is a big price, is it not?" The reporter acknowledged it was. "The price of cocaine," the druggist continued, "has been reduced very much since; now it is just three cents a grain. We have other drugs which are used in medicine and which are exceedingly costly. I will give you an example. There is eser ine, or phyostiquine, which costs at the manufacturer's 30 cents a grain; that is, $131.25 an ounce. It is very rarely used generally by oculists for the purpose of dilating the pupil of the eye, in opposition to atropia,. It has just the contrary effect to opium. You know opium makes the eyes heavy and dull. You see them oncir cled with dark rings. Eserine causes the eyes to shine and sparkle. In a word, it gives to them that brightness which we all like to see, and which a good many young ladies endeavor to cultivate," "Do they use such a costly article as eser ine in their desire to cultivate it?" "No, belladonna produces the same effect, and belladonna is taken to a very consider able extent for the purpose. But to return to the expensive and rare medicines, and the consequence of having to keep them in stock. The very costly are, of course, sel dom calleJ for. That is to say, they a e not used at all in the ordinary, simple dis eases. Generally speaking, too, they are used in infinitesimal quantities--sy the 1-1,000th part of a grain. What does that mean? It means that in an ounce you have a supply for 487 possible patients. 'Think, then, of the length of time an article will remain on one's hands! Yet these medi tines must be kept, for the simple reason that you must have them when prescril;ed. Here is another exampnlle." Mr. Good searched his uhliarmaceutical case and pro duced a tiny bottle. "This," lie said, "con tains hyoscine hybrbhonate, probably a quarter of a cramme. It has bees In n otck for i considerable time. The price at the mnnufaeturer'- store l 060 cents a ail; that is $.2(2.60 an ounce. 'rhe one-out hundredth part of that is a usual dose.
