ligious Songs We Sing, Says
It is a melancholy thing to read an
English hymn book. Doubtless for
most of us sacred associations gather
around the hymns we sing, so that we
abandon ourselves to the feelings
called up by these associations, and
do not notice what we are singing,
writes Prof. W. H. D. Rouse in the
English Review. Yet if in a critical
mood we examine them we cannot but
be overcome with melancholy.
They are so well meant and so badly
expressed, so pious and so ridiculous.
They are sentimental when they
should be impassioned, groveling in
stead of penitent, incoherent when
they ought to be simple.
It is not true that great poets are
irreligious.; on the contrary, their
glory it is to see a soul of goodness
in things evil, and this is the essence
of religion. Yet our hymns are obvi
ously not written by poets. There is
surely no reason why religion and illit
eracy should be unequally yoked to
gether, and it were better to sing up
hymns at all than to sing trash.

Waters of Gatun Lake Turned
Into the Culebra Cut.
This Will Mark the Practical Comple
tion of the Big Waterway After
Nine Years of Labor by an
Army of Men.
Colon, Panama, Oct. 1. —The Pan
ama canal stands today virtually com
The preliminary steps toward the
destruction of the Gamboa dike, which
until the present time, has held the
waters of Gatun lake out of the Cu
ebra cut, were taken today when the
valves in four great 26-inch pipes
which pierce the dike were opened
and the waters of the lake began
flowing into the Culebra cut. Within
a few days, it is expected, enough wa
ter will have flowed into the cut to
form a cushion and prevent the dam
age that might be done if th- dike
, were blown up and tne water” o' war)
; to rush into the empty cut.
The final destruction of the big dike
is scheduled for October 10, wc-en
charges of dynamite placed in hoies
already drille.d in the dike will be ex
ploded. The explosion of these
charges will not completely destroy
the dike, but will weaken it and loos
en the dirt so that the force of the
waters from Gatuan lake will carry It
away. Steam shovels will remove the
remnants of the dike, leaving an open
passageway from ocean to ocean.
Canal Really Complete Now.
Although the canal will not be offi
cially declared completed for some
time, and the formal opening of the
waterway to the commerce of the
world more than a year distant, the
canal engineers look upon the de
struction of the Gamboa dike as mark
ing the real completion of the canal.
The big engineering feats have all
been accomplished, the excavation
work practically has been completed,
and the great locks have been con
structed. The work that remains to
be done is largely detail, and is but
child’s play as compared with that
which has been done. More dirt is
to be removed from the channel, but
this will be done with suction dredges
floating upon the waters of the canal.
There still remain some finishing
touches to be placed upon the locks,
but this work will take comparatively
little time and presents no engineer
ing difficulties such as have been en
countered in the past.
The fact that the canal stands prac
tically complete more than a year be
fore the time originally set as the
date for its completion is one of the
remarkable features of the work.
When Count de Lesseps, the great
French engineer, abandoned his ef
forts to build the Panama canal after
eight years of labor, he had scarcely
made a beginning upon the gigantic
task. In nine years, the American en
gineers, starting almost at the same
point as de Lesseps, for the latter’s
work was of little value to the Amer
icans, have virtually completed the
undertaking. When the work was
started the world scoffed at the idea
that it would be completed within the
time limit set, but hats are now off
to the American army engineers who
have more than kept their word, de
spite unforseen difficulties that have
beset them at every band.
Goethals to Make Final Test.
The first vessel to pass through the
canal probably will be a boat of the
Isthmian canal commission, Col.
George W. Goethals, chairman of the
commission and chief engineer of the
canal, and his principal assistants.
Ceremonial Bath.
Considerable pomp used to attend
the entrance into the water of the
Duchess de Berri, who, close on a
hundred years ago, first made sea
bathing fashionable in France. When
the duchess went bathing at Dieppe
her arrival on the beach was hailed
with a salvo of artillery. The holder
of the then newly created post of “in
specteur des bains” had to be there
to receive her, attired in a resplendent
uniform, cocked hat and white gloves.
This functionary led her rayol high
The final voyage through the canal is
scheduled for some time during this
month. Within another month it is
expected the waters in Gatun lake
will have risen high enough to bring
the waters in the entire canal up to
the deep water level required for the
passage of the largest ships.
It Is said that as long ago as the
| early part of August, assurances were
given Washington officials that if the
emergency should, arise, the entire
Atlantic battleship fleet could be put
through the canal into Pacific waters
I within 60 days from that date. The
work has been hurried with that end
in view, it is said, as no emergency
has existed, but this assurance is an
‘ indication of the belief of the engi
neers that their work is now practi
cally finished.
Culebra Cut Caused Trouble.
The excavation of the Culebra cut,
into which the water has just been
turned, has been one of the engineer
ing feats connected with the building
, of the canal, and has caused the en-
L gineers more trouble than any oth
, er portion of the big “ditch.” To
' Col. D. D. Gaillard, the engineer of
, the central division, is given the
| credit for carrying this portion of the
| work through to a successful termina
The disastrous slides in the cut
were discouraging to the engineers,
t nullifying in a few hours the work of
many weeks, but Col. Gaillard and his
, assistants have kept untiringly at
i their work, and at last have conquer
ed the treacherous tmmpif- of the deep
, cut. The engineers believe that the
' danger of slides will be eliminated
i now that the water has been turned
into the cut.
, A little more than a month ago the
, giant steam shovels finished their
work in the Culebra cut. Since that
time the workmen have been busy
’ removing the shovels, the railroad
[ tracks and other machinery used in
the excavation work. There is still
some dirt to be removed from the cut
before the channel is finished, but
this work will be done by suction
dredges floating on the waters of the
! canal, and will not interfere with nav
! igation of the waterway by such boats
1 as may be allowed to pass through.
Immense Artificial Lake Created.
Gatun lake, the waters of which are
now flowing into the Culebra cut, is
the pivotal point about which the en
tire canal system revolves, and the
creation of this lake, together with the
' construction of Gatun dam, consti
tuted another great engineering feat
1 in the construction of the canal. Gat
un lake is an artificial body of water
covering about 164 square miles of
territory and was created by the
building of the immense Gatun dam
and the impounding of the wild wa
ters of Chagres river. Beneath the
waters of Gatun lake lies what a few
months ago was the valley of the
Chagres, dotted with native villages
and plantations. The channel of the
canal passes through this lake for a
distance of 24 miles with a width vary
ing from 500 to 1,000 feet.
At the northern end of the lake
is the Gatun dam, which is in reality
an artificial ridge more than a mile
and a half long. Figures alone give
an adequate idea of the magnitude of
this dam. Nearly half a mile wide at
its base, about 400 feet wide at the
water surface, and 100 feet wide at
the top, the dike which many en
gineers predicted would never with
stand the rush of the Chagres’ wa
ters, is admitted now to be so strong
that nothing short of an earthquake
such as has never been known in the
Central American region can harm
it. The Gatun dam, Gatun lake and
the Culebra cut, so gigantic are the
proportions of each, dwarf the other
engineering works of the canal that
in themselves have challenged the ad
miration of the world.
World Gives Goethals Credit.
To Col. George Goethals, chairman
of the Isthmian canal commission,
chief engineer of the commission and
governor of the canal zone, the world
will give the credit for the successful
completion of the Panama canal. Col.
Goethals could not have accomplish
ness into the sea until the water
reached her knees, when he retired
with three profound reverences. The
duchess, who was an expert swim
mer, then proceeded to enjoy her
Test Your Tea.
A remarkably simple method of
testing the purity of tea for coloring
matter is to use an ordinary table
knife and a sheet of white paper, upon
which a small Quantity of the tea to
ed his task without the assistance ol
such men as Col. H. F. Hodges, Lieut.
Col. David Du B. Baillard and Lieut.
Col. William L. Sibert, army en
gineers, who have had charge of va
rious phases of the work, but Col. Goe
thals is recognized as the real builder
of the canal.
Under Colonel Goethals the greater
part of the $375,000,000 which the can
al will have cost when it is completed
has been spent. It has been by far
the costliest engineering project in
the world. Nearly three-fifths of a
billion dollars has been spent in dig
ging a 40-mile “ditch.” This means
that the Panama canal has cost the
United States $10,000,000 a mile.
Over $15,000,000 of the total amount
spent has been used to make the canal
zone habitable and sanitary. It has
been suggested that this is an enor
mous amount of money to spend in
cleaning up a place in which few peo
ple will reside permanently, but the
engineers say that the sanitation of
the canal zone was the chief factor in
making the canal a reality. The fail
ure of the French has been attributed
to a large extent to the fact that
the workmen could not survive in the
fever and pest-ridden country.
The building of the great locks
which raise a vessel to a height of 87
feet above sea level at one end of
the canal and lower it the same dis
tance at the other end, has been in
charge of two of Colonel Goethals’
assistants, Colonel Hodges and Lieu
tenant Colonel Sibert. Colonel Hodge’s
work in installing the immense lock
gates that form so important a part
of the operating machinery of the
canal, and his ability to overcome all
obstacles had led Colonel Goethals to
call him a genius. The building, pois
ing and operation of the lock gates
constitute one of the delicate prob
lems of lock canal construction, and
the proper handling of this problem
nas been Colonel Hodge’s contribu
tion to the work of construction of
the canal.
Lieutenant Colonel Sibert has had
charge of the building of the great
dam and locks at Gatun, in addition
to other duties. He saw long, ac
tive service in the Philippines, and
he is known in the army as a fight
er as well as an engineer.
Realize Dream of Centuries.
Through the work of these men —all
of them members of Uncle Sam’s
fighting body, the United States has
been able to attain what has been in
truth the dream of centuries. In nine
years these men have carried through
an undertaking that was first thought
of several hundreds of years ago.
The United States government first
took definite action looking toward
the construction of an isthmian canal
in 1834. when the Benate voted for
the building of a Nicaraguan canal.
An expedition was sent to Nicaragua
to make an investigation, and report
ed that the canal could be construct
ed for $25,000,000, hardly one-twenti
eth of the amount that .the Panama
canal will have cost when completed.
De Lesseps First to Dig.
The matter rested until after the
Civil war, when negotiations for a
canal commission were entered into
by the United States government. Be
fore anything had been accomplished
the concession for a Panama canal
had been given to Lucien Napoleon
Bonaparte Wyse, a Frenchman. He
organized a company, which sold out
later to the financiers associated with
Ferdinand de Lesseps. The company
organized with de Lesseps at its head
was the first one to actually begin op
erations on the isthmus. For eight
years de Lesseps struggled manfully
against the greatest odds that man
ever was called upon to face. Then
he was forced to give up the fight,
his company collapsing as a result of
dishonesty and extravagance on the
part of Its promoters, and de Lesseps,
driven insane by the scandal, ended
his days in an asylum.
Such was the history of the isth
mian canal project for some 300 or
400 years, until the day in 1904 when
Uncle Sam undertook the task.
In nine years the dream of the cen
turies has been realized.
be tested is placed. The tea is then
rubbed in with the knife. When the
leaves have been reduced to a pow
der the paper is dusted clean with a
brush made of common bristles and
its surface examined with the naked
eye or a microscope. If the tea is
artificially colored little spots or
streaks of vivid Prussian blue will
appear in the fiber of the paper.
These strains are so distinct in their
coloring that they cannot possibly be
confused with any other stain that
may be in the naner.

Miner Went at Once to the Root of
the Trouble, as He Had It
Sized Up.
A miner, who was proud of his hoy's
attainments at school, one evening
picked up a home lesson book and
read from it a quotation which ran
like this: “Some books should be tast
ed, some swallowed, and some chewed
and digested.—Bacon.” Turning to
his boy, he said:
“What’s this, sonnie? Thou doesn't
eat books at school, does tha? I know
you are very clever, but you cannot do
those nanny-goat tricks, I’m sure. I’ll
warrant that’ll be one of those print
er’s errors, sonnie.”
"00, no, father,” said the boy. “Met
aphorically speaking, we eat books.”
“Now, you cannot fool me like that.”
said the father. “I didn’t go to school
very long, but I ken that’s one of those
printer’s errors. Why, sonnie, can
thou not see? He's put the word ‘Ba
con’ in the wrong place. It should be:
‘Some bacon should be tasted, some
swallowed, and some chewed and di
gested.—Books.’ ”
i Way to Woo Sleep.
The following method is described
as one which is almost certain to woo
slumber with success. On going to
bed you assume a comfortable atti
tude in which every muscle is relaxed,
but not the attitude in which you are
accustomed to go to sleep, though
something resembling it. Every move
ment, coughing, yawning, are strictly
repressed, especially the desire tc
turn over. The same attitude is main
tained without change, constantly re
sisting the longing to move or turn
As a rule, by the end of 15 or 20
minutes of this persistent mainte
nance of the same altitude you wil'
find yourself growing very dropsy
and then, just as the desire to turn
over becomes absolutely uncontroll
able, you turn with the least possi
ble effort, and assume the position
in which you habitually go to sleep
and natural sleep follows at once.
This method, it is claimed, seldom
fails and should he given a thorough
trial, at least before resorting to a
drug to bring sleep.
