Since the organizing of Ihe Manjtou & Pike's Peak Railway Com puny in the fall of 1880 for the const ruction of a railway j nine miles long, from Manitou to the Ohl Signal Station on Pike's Peak, nearly I.(Kin men have been constantly employed. The road is buill <>n the Aid system, ami, as regards grades surmounted, is perhaps tin- steepest and most important Aid line in the world. The exact length is 46,158 feet, or very nearly eight and t hrec-fotirl Its j miles. The altitude of its station at Mani? tou is 6.6(H) feet; at the summit it is I (, ?.'0(1 feet llllOVC sea level, the total ascent being i.600 feet, or an average of 846 feet per mile. The maximum grade is 25 per cent, over 22 per cent of the line having a grade of from22,bg to ?>"> per cent. 'Ihe! line is tolerably crooked, even for an ad-1 hesion road, and has many sharp curves. | Of straight line there is 28,378 feet, and of curved 18,47? feet, about 3!? per ceil 1 of the line being on curves. The sharpest curves arc Mi degrees, of which there are many. The roadbed foundations are firmly secured, and further protected and sus? tained by wide embankments wherever practicable. There are four iron bridges, two of twenty feet and two of thirty feet span, resting on masonry abutments. At intervals of 200 to*600 or 1,000 feet, depending on the grades, anchorages are made by straps fastened to the lies and carried up grade to cycbolts, set in solid blocks of masonry. As tin; whole track is tieti together, not only by Ihe spiking, hut by the extra fastenings of the rack rail, it is thought thai these anchorages will lie amply suflicietil to guard against the movement of any part down grade. The rack rails consist of two rack bars set side by side in chairs. Each section is eighty inches long, and the chairs ate forty inches apart on each second tie. the rack liars breaking joint according to the usual Abt practice. Three locomotives on the Abt system, each weighing twenty-five tons, have been built for the line. The cab and boiler are much like those of any other steam en? gine, but the intricate machinery under? neath is wholly unlike that of an ordinary locomotive. The wheels bearing on the rails are merely bearing wheels, not drivers, the plant differing in this respect from some other Abt engines which work either by adhesion or rack indifferently. The Pike's Peak line being all on rack grades, this double provision became su? perfluous. 'Ihe engine is propelled by three sets of gearing directly over ihe center of the track. On these are six pinions with steel teeth, which lit into Ihe two rack rail.- running along the center of the track. The propcling power is applied directly to a drum above the two rear I pinions. The front pinions an- moved by j a connecting rod running from the second one. The brake apparatus is especially powerful. On cithcir side of the pinions is a corrugated surface which a steam brake presses against witli tremendous force. The engine is also lilted with hand brakes and the be Chlltclicr water brake. In which the cylinders act as brakes, which is so effectively and largely used on mountain grades. One engine will push two cars weighing 42,000 pounds loaded. The average Speed will be five miles an hour. The ears are not tilled, but the seats are so arranged as to give the pas? senger a level tooling. The engine, in? stead of drawing, pushes the cars. The cars can also be lei down hill indepen? dently of ihe engine, if necessary. From its Manitou station, the line runs up apparently vertical cliffs through Ell glemaii Canyon until small but beautiful grass-covered parks are reached. About ! one and a hall miles from Manitou, at Artist Glen, magnificent views are ob? tained "I the surrounding country, inclu? ding (he Garden of the Cods,and the vast plains Stretching east. Sharp grades an' first encountered on tin- second mile from Manitou station. All work above the timber line for two and a half miles is largely in embankment to avoid difficul? ties from snow. Below tin: limber line it is largely iu excavation, as owing to the steepness of the mountain sides it was difficult to build embankments. Aluminum. ' American Kuginccr.) The specific gravity of aluminum being taken as one, soft sleel is very nearly 2.05 times as heavy; copper,3.6 times as heavy; ordinary high brass, 3.43 times as heavy; silver. I times as heavy: lead, 4.8 limes as heavy: gold, 7.7 times as heavy. A sheet of aluminum twelve inches square and one inch thick weighs 14.03 pounds; a bar of aluminum one inch square and twenty-one inches long will weigh 1.17 pound.-: a bar of aluminum one inch in diameter ami twelve inches long will weigh 0.018 pounds. I.I.S. j v i aide im li n| casi aluminum weigh*. iMHe ? *? fmil of east aluminum vveighf.I5S.SIG7 ?? ?? sod steel weighs.4t?.45U " " wrought iron weighs,.4S5.S74 j " dipper weighs.6S4'J6R': ?? ?? ordinary liras- weighs.524.100 j Aluminum has about Ihe tensile strength ' of cast iron, with only about one-third of, its weight, and easts equally us freely and i successful, and will, therefore, be very ad vnr.tugeously used to replace cast iron in ; the parts of moving machinery that have! to be reversed or otherwise have their mo ineutum overcome; for with one-third the weight, and consequently one-third mo? mentum, aluminum will work very satis? factorily. Pure aluminum melts and becomes fluid at about 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit. The amount of impurity iu aluminum materi? ally alters its melting point. One- per cent of iron raises the mi lting point over I 1(111 degrees. It does not remain firm like lead almost to the fluid point and then suddenly give way. but has a stage of from 1.000 to 1,200* degrees Fahrenheit, in which the metal becomes pasty, loses much of its power and cohesion, and | during which stage, if the metal be gently pressed together, it can be readily . welded. It is. however, very red-short at this temperature, and will not stand ham? mering to weld the metal without crum? bling down. If the metal is not too long; a time iu this pasty condition it does not seem to become injured after being again cooled down. At the Village Punt Office Window. (From the Kunxsntuwney Spirit.) The life of a post office clerk iu a town of two or three thousand inhabitants is full of pleasantness, and all his paths are peace. He has nothing under the sun to ruffle the placid serenity of his amiable temper, and consequently ltis disposition soon becomes as sweet and mild as the perfume of a magnolia grove wafted on the . gentle breath of summer. All he has to do is to engage iu cxhilerating conversa? tions like this: "Is there anything here for Sarah Bil kins?" ? Nothing, madam." "Are you sure'/" "Quite sure, madam." "Hut you didn't look. How do you know without looking?'' "1 have looked over the letters iu the B j box seven hundred limes to-day, and 1 remember that there were no letters in ii addressed to you." "Well, now, that's strange. 1 should have had a letter yesterday, and I thought it would come to-day sure. Ho you sup? pose it could have been lost?" "It's possible," "i>o many letters get lost?" "About sixteen millions annually.'" "Oh, my! What is the reason?" "By reason of incorrect or illigible address, insufficient postage, and other causes." "Uooduess! And I suppose lots of them had money in?" "Yes. Twenty-eight thousand of the letters sent to the Dead Letter Office last year contained uiouey, umouuting iu ull to flH,(U-i; -1,000 had enclosures of postal notes aggregating $5,300, ami 27,000 were found to contain drafts, cheek*, notes, commercial paper, etc., in the sum of $1,47J,871." "My lord! And who gets tin's money?" "If the letter contains the address of the sender it is sent kick to him, but in over 3,000,00(1 cases out of 15,000,00?) no address whatever is pi veil by the writer." "Then, perhaps, my letter has gone to the Dead Letter Office, or is held for post ape, <>r something like that." "I'e rhaps." "Well, don't you think?" "Madam, will you please stand aside a moment until I wait on the people who arc crowding around the window?" And as Madam departs she mutters spitefully that she "never saw such an in? solent, overbearing, unaccommodating fel? low as that post office clerk. He can't even answer a civil question, and Iain going to have him reported to the depart? ment this very -lav."' What Moustache* Tell. (Prom tin1 Jfortliwe*! Magazine.) Tlu re is a great deal of character in the moustache. As the form of the upper lip and the regions about if has largely lo do I with the feelings, pride, self-scliance, man- j liness, vanity, and other qualities that ! give self-control, the moustache i- eon-! nectcd with the expression of those qunli t ics or t he reverse. When the moustache is ragged and. as ? it were. Hying hither and thither, there i- ! a lack of proper self-control. When it is ! straight and orderly the reverse is the! case, other things, of course, taken into account. If there is a tendency to curl at the outer ends of the moustache, there is a tendency to ambition, vanity, and display. When the curl turns upward there is gen? iality, combined with a love of approba? tion; when the inclination is downward there is a more sedate turn of mind, not accompanied with gloom. It is worthy of remark that good-natured men will, in playing with the moustache, invariably give it an upward inclination, whereas cross-grained or morose will pull it obliquely downward. When to Cut Timber. The lies! lime u, cut timber is when the i tree is tilled with the gum and oil that i have formed after the sap has ceased flowing and when the natural forces of the tree are at rest. This term may be said to be between tin- 1st of September and the ' 1st of February, according to climate and locality. December and January are fa- I vorite months in man;, sections. Trees when felled in the winter have iess sap to ? be evaporated by seasoning, whether used for lumber or tire wood, and are sooner brought into the right condition for use.; For durability timber should have sulli cicnt age, and its strength as well as its lasting qualities depend not only on it maturity, but also on the part of the tree from which it is taken. The least durable and the weakest part of a tree i^ the sap wood next the bark. Young trees have an excess of sap wood, and limber from ! such w ill not lie as durable, especially in : exposed position*, as the wood of mature] trees. The strength ot' wood is much in? creased by the process of seasoning. While this is going on warping should lie guarded against; otherwise it- value for; most purposes will be greatly impaired, j Tin- Manatee in Washington. [From ile- Washington hist.) Tin1 manatee,or sea cow. tun specimens of which have been on exhibition lo re, is now almost an extinct species. The two seen in Washington were captured in the I ndiau river, Florida, last Jnlj. The larger j of the two weighed about WK) pounds and was nine feel long. Tie- other was a.fool shorter and weighed about 7511. The two in Washington were .-aid to In; the only specimens thai ever lived more than a week alter capture, and they were apparently in good-health. Captain Zellers says he hunted several weeks for these specimens, following them for a number of days after he first discov- j ered them. They usually are found in] herds, which combine for mutual pro? tection when attacked, placing their young , in the centre. They are greal cowards, always trembling in fear of danger. Na? ture has failed lo provide them with any weapon of defence except the power to j out.-?.vim the sharks und whales. The disappearance of the sea cow is ' accounted for by the fact thai the hide is valuable and the flesh held in high esteem I for food. These specimens were driven into nets and pulled aboard with a rope, which the captain looped about their tails, lie says that he will make an effort to calci.' a couple for the National Zo? ological Park. Specimens of manatee ; have been harpooned which weighed four tons, and were twenty tei l long. Important I'oinls in Horseshoeing. The Kentucky Stock Farm is authority | for tin- following: The furrier too often j make.- a horse his patient for life by ruth? lessly culling away (he elastic cushion! called the Crop, which is nature's natural support for the great flexor tendon. This cushion is nature's provision to support! the center of the horse's fool, lo lake oft I the strain from the sensitive lamina: with which the hoof is connected with the foot, to prevent the extreme depression and j consequent strain on the flexor tendon, and lo break the concussion caused by the horse's great weight coining so rapidly to i the ground. When once severely cut away I the frog never entirely recovers its origi? nal efficiency, and it will be a very long time before it will be even moderately! useful. At the same time the enamel, like the I enamel covering our linger nails, which i covers the whole of the outside of the! cob's hoof, and effectually retains iisi moisture and suppleness, i.- rasped away I to make his foot tit the shoe and lo give il i a round and uniform shape. Thus I wo of nature's most important provisions to; secure an elastic tread are ruthlessly de 81roved and the horse compelled hence-, fortil to slump ami jar away with his sensitive foot and loaded sinews resting entirely on the dried and unyielding crust j of his hoof, made still more unyielding by being uaiied in an iron ring.
