At the time when this machine left here the company was out of heavy steel, but since then they have received many car loads and unloaded them here in their yards, and now that the machine has lieen brought hack, it will take up the work where they left it and push it rapidly forward. At that time they w( re about five miles out southeast of town. The machine which lays about three miles per day on an av erage will soon close the gap up. which lies between us and the caprock.
