COCKROACH ,..- y..TTw i" ; CUCAKACKA CUD Colon, C. Z. If you wish to hear "language," Just aay "Cucaracha" to one of the engineers engaged In build ing the central division of the Panama canal. Cucaracha In Spanish means a cockroach. In the Canal Zone it means the greatest of the numeroup alldes that have tuade the completion of the Culebra cut bo different and so expenulve. Why that slide was named the cockroach I would not discover. Certainly evn the Panamanian cock roach Is not so large, and he moves much more swiftly. Before the first French compatfy quit operations In 1889 the Cucaracha began to slide, and It first gave the Americans trouble In 1905, the second year of their work on the canal. Be tween then and July 1, 1912, nearly 13,000,000 cubic yards of material waa iremoved from the canal because of It. The slide had broken nearly 1,909 feet from the axis of the canal, and covered an area of 47 acres. Last fall the engineers were congratulating themselves on having the cockroach stopped, but In January It started moving again, and nearly covered the bottom of the cut. "What is going to be the cost of that slide to the United States?" I asked Colonel Goethals as we stood at the edge of the Culebra cut and look ed across the chasm to where the ateata shovels and hundreds of men were laboring to remove the vast mass of earth and rock. ' "Well," the chief engineer replled,"our (estimate is that by the time it 1b all cleared up it will have required the expenditure of about $5,000,000 more than the cut would have cost if the elide had not occurred.. It is still mov ing, and has broken bo far back that Giant Steam Shovel. ,now we are slioveling the creat away (from the canal in order to relieve the (pressure from above. Uefore the move ment in January began the excavation (In the cut at that point had been carried to within 15 feet of the canal (bottom. Digging out that 15 feet of material removed the support of th iCucaracha, and down it came. If we could have turned in the water and taken out the 15 feet with dredges, I think the pressure of the water would ihave done much to prevent the slide." "What of the future?" I asked. "Is there any danger of slides occurring after the canal Is opened?" "Absolutely none, I believe," he an swered. "When the excavating and 'dynamiting have ceased and the wa ter is in, It will be quite safe. We have the slides and breaks mapped out as far back as there is any indi cation of their extending, and are working back to those lines. It Is merely a matter of persistency and pa tience." ' "When will the water be et into ithe cut?" 1 In October." replied Colonel Goe thals. "Hut there will be no celebra tion over the event. That one in Jan uary, 1915, la giving us enough worry, end we don't forget the premature and ridiculous celebration by Ferdinand de Lesseps many years ago. We will just turn the water in that's all. Then we can complete the excavation there with suction dredges, which will do the work cheaply and rapidly." "And when will boats be passing through the canal?" "That I cannot say, but the sooner the better, for the operating crews must be properly trained before that January celebration. I wouldn't have an accident occur for anything. If w cannot have commercial vessels going through before then, I shall ask the government to send naval vessels through, so the operating forces can got the experience. Anyhow, I want to see the canal opened to commerce as Boon as possible, for it is revenue I am after." Another day I stood w ith Col. D. D. Gaillard, the engineer of the central division, outBide bis oflice in Empire, and watched his arnr laboring In th cut, the completion of which has been bis biggest tk and greatest ttlory. Right at our feet a big area had sunk down 70 feet In a night, and If there had not been warnings of the break a wing of the colonel's office building would hav gone down with It. "We had just time to remove that wing." &!a" ne- "an my offlce force is iitber nervous now. for there are L " " '1 .. p 1 i ,t , I W "' -1MB'" w - V' '-- n i "'Sj ' Mm - rxriCKARD ' ,-, ' - . three big cracks under the main build ing. I expect it, too, will have to be torn down very soon. "These slides used to make us rath er despondent, for It seemed as If they never would stop, but the progress we are making this year has cheered up the operating forces again, and we can see the end of the task. The slide and the break are quite differ ent. In the former the earth slides at an angle down a sloping face of rock, and In the latter the mass sinks straight down and at the bottom bulges out into the channel. Along both sides of the cut you can see nu merous small slides and breaks. Those are in pockets In the rock wall, and, annoying as they aft, they only need cleaning out The Cucaracha started as a slide and now it Is both a slide and a break. "Incidentally, that cut should be a great place for geologists. I have found in It every kind of rock except granite, and many Interesting fossils and petrification have been discover ed there. In one stratum through which we cut there were found a great number of teeth of prehistoric varie ties of sharks." "What is your opinion concerning the date when the canal will be ready for commerce?" I asked. "If I had my say," said the colonel emphatically, "not a commercial ves sel would be allowed in the canal un til it is absolutely complete down to the smallest detail. In some ot the many safety devices were not in op eration and an accident should result, the canal would get a black eye from which it might not recover for a long time. Officially, the time for the com pletion of the canal la still January 1, 1915. It may be done before that date, but in March ot this year there was still about $50,000,000 worth of work ahead ot us. "We who have been digging the canal and are still here in positions of responsibility I mean the members of the Isthmian canal commission are rather fearful concerning that part of the Adamson bill which permits the president to dissolve the commis sion whenever in his judgment the canal Is near enough to completion. We feel that It would be extremely unjust not to allow us to remain 'on the job until after the grand formal opening in January, 1915. It would be much like permitting a boy to com plete his university course, and then taking him home before he receives his diploma." And then Colonel Gaillard said some things about Mr. Taft's efforts to put into effect that clause last January, which must have made, the ex-president's ears tingle a bit "The Culebra cut is like a three-ring circus. I don't know which way to look," said one visitor to the zone. It is indeed a scene of wonderful ac tivity. Giant steam shovels are scat tered through it, scooping up enor mous masses of rock and earth; on half a dozen tracks on as many dif ferent levels snorting and puffing loco motives are swiftly drawing loaded or empty dirt trains; along the ledges are batteries of steam and com pressed air drills, making holes for dynamite; suddenly there Is a toot tootifigof a steam whistle, a hundred men scurry to shelter, and a dynamite blast fills the air with sound and dirt and rocks. These blasts during work hours are known as "dobie shots," and are fired for the purpose of breaking up boulders too big for the shovels to handle, and to remove small masses of earth. Though small blasts, they are decidedly noisy ones. The larger ones, which loosen great areas ot ma terial for the shovels, are fired only when most of the workmen a.re out of the cut, between 11 and 1 o'clock and after 5. The amount of dynamite used on the canal is extraordinary. For sev eral years the annual average has b-"n about G.000,000 pounds. Put in another way, one pound of dynamite has been used to every 2 cubic yards of material blasted. When the drill holes have been loaded, they are con nected in parallel and fired by means of a current from an electric plant. Colonel Gaillard, wen he took charge of the central division, found a differ ent system of firing In use In which a considerable proportion of the charges failed to explode. He changed that, and at the same time instituted other reforms In the manner of han dling dynamite. One result was a marked decrease in the number of ac cidents from premature explosions. Watching the steam shovels is a fa vorite occupation of visitors who ven ture down into the Culebra cut. They seem almost human, and do a vast amount ot work. Their dippers hold live cubic yards of material, weigh ing on an average a little more than three tons. This spoil is emptied Into cars of several kinds. Flat cars with one high side are unloaded by plows that are drawn the length of the train by cable upon a winding drum. The others are dump cars, the largest of which are operated by compressed air from the locomotive. The trains haul the spoil from the cut to dumping grounds, which on an average are about 12 miles distant. Some 18,000, 000 cubic yards of this material was used as filling for the long breakwa ter at the Pacific entrance. Records are fragile things; you can't lower one without breaking it. LNAT10NAL SUiWSCIIOOL Lesson - (Br K. O. 8KM.KIIM. llri t.r of Evn Inu Iii piirtMi. nl Tit. Mix)ily Hltil. In fttltut. of Chicago.) LESSON FOR JULY 27. MOSES' REQUEST REFUSED. I.KHHON TEXT-Kx. 6:1-14. Ool.MCN TKXT-"Hli.t.il re thr .lint mourn fur they shall t comfurt.d." -Mutt 6 4. Only one incident is mentioned with reference to that long journey Moses had to take in returning from Mldlan to Egypt. "The Lord met htm and ought to kill him." (4:24). Moses Is about to pronounce a fearful penalty, st e 4:23, and It was necessary that he comprehended the terrible meaning of his threat. Also be had neglected to observe the sign of covenant peace (circumcision) with his youngest son, and that was a serious dullnquency for the future leader of Israel. "It was necessary at this stage of bis ex perience that he should learn that God is in earnest when he speaks, and w ill assuredly perform all that be baa threatened." (Murphy.) Showing himself with Aaron, the elders of Israel are soon convinced that God nad sent them and wai about to work out through Moses and Aaroa the long promised deliverance. Issue Plainly Stated. , I. Mosst' Message, vv. 1-. Moses and Aaron plainly stated the issue at the very outset, "Thus salth the Lord God of Israel" (v. 1). This was at once a challenge as to the boasted su perior greatness of the Egyptian gods. It also touched Pharaoh's pride for he was an absolute monarch and can be allow these representatives ot an op pressed people any liberties? Lastly, It was a question of economic impor tance. Dare he allow these people thus to congregate? And there waa not only a civil danger, butalso-a prob able financial loss. It was an auda cious request yet It is presented fear lessly, for Moses no longer was lean ing upon the strength of bis own right arm. Moses was fully aware of Egyp tian court procedure and Of Pha raoh's arrogance, cruelty, and power, yet there Is no suggestion of him bow ing as a suppliant. Pharaoh looked upon these Israel ites as his own property, t now they are claimed for another. "Let my peo ple go." In contempt, Pharaoh ex claims, "Who Is Jehovah?" It was In answer to that very question Moses had been sent and right well was Pha raoh to learn the answer ere the ac count is settled. Men are flippantly asking that same question today, both by word and conduct, who will find out to their final Borrow who Jehovah is, and why they should obey his voice. Pharaoh spoke the truth when he said "I know not the Lord," but though he seems to boast ot that be little knew what it means for a man to set up his will against that of God. "I will not" was the proud boast of a weak, wilful. Ignorant worm of the dust, for all his exalted position among men. Read 2 Thees. 1:8 and Rom. 1:28. In reply, (v. 3) Moses and Aaron did not seek to argue the case. Very little Is ever gained by such a meth od, much better for us to deliver God'a message verbatim and trust to the holy spirit to bring conviction. Moses and Aaron were far more afraid of the pestilence and sword of Jehovah than the boasted power of Pharaoh. God does punish disobedience whether we like it or not, see Deut. 28:21. Zech. 14:16-19, etc. This fearlessness angered Pharaoh (v. 4) and he com mands them and their brethren at once to resume their burdens. The world is constantly accusing the ser vants of God of unfitting people for their work, see Amos 7:10, Luke 23:3 and Acts 17:6. Truth Confirmed. The truth of this narrative is con firmed by the bricks found in the ruins of cities built during this period of Egyptian history. The bricks were made of clay mixed with stubble, rath er than the ordinary straw and baked In the sun rather than In a fire kiln. Pharaoh accuses Moses and Aaron of speaking lies (v. 9 R. V.). Men to day, sometimes by direct accusation and more often by iwplicatlon, acouse Gail's word of being a lie, but these will one day find those words to be the truth. Matt. 5:18. Their attitude will not affect the truthfulness of the word, nor the validity and justness of God's demands. II. Pharaoh's Method, vv. 10-15. It must have been a severe test of faith for the Israelites to have had their hopes thus dashed and more grievous burdens thrust upon them. Before, the government furnished the neces sary straw, now they must get It themselves and at the same time keep up the usual toll of bricks. Dut this Is only the beginning of the struggle. From their joy the Israelites are turned to murmuring and despair which even Moses seems to have shared, vv. 22, 23. Is this not sugges tive of the gospel awakened soul that begins to realize the power of sin with in and its own Inability to meet and to master it? Such an experience means that we have not as yet appre hended all the content and power of the gospel and does not Imply that the goBpel has failed. Those who were beaten (v. 14) were of their own number who were held accountable under the Egyptian task masters for the conduct of the whole. Is this not suggestive of one other than ourselves "who bore our sins In his own body on the tree" and "by whose stripes we are healed?" How little we comprehend, even with centuries of Christian history as our guide and the inspired word as our teacher, the full meaning of Paul's words, "For I reckon that the suffer ings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed In ua." Rom. 8:18. But God is mindful of his own and aa soon as Moses and Aaron turn ed to him he gives them a most gra cious renewal of his promise and of the ultimate blessing, see Chapter RAISE HOGS IN SOUTH Mulberries Furnish Excellent Food For Three Months. Supplemented With Small Amount of Grain, Athts, Salt and Charcoal 8uparlor Ration Is Secured Housing Is Simple. ny Ml. 8AMUKI, J. HPMMKI18) Iit)t us consider the necesoary prep aration for economical finding of awlne. Plant a grove of ever bearing mulberries, facing the trees CO fret by 60 feet, In good, well drained soil. The bst varieties are the white and black English. These are very pro lific, bearing large berries and fur nishing a fine food for at leaat three montha May, June and July; some years even a longer period. When properly cared for they come Into bearing In three years and are profi table at five years. It will bring a mile to your face to see how the sow nl Pigs put on a new coat of hair and smooth out when eating berries. They are the most economical feud we have. At present my trees are loaded with fruit and you should see the pigs running from tree to tree and kept busy all the time, Theso supplemented with a small amount of grain, with plenty of salt, ashes and charcoal, make an Ideal food. Then you should have a good grass pasture, preferably Bermuda grass, for them to graze. A small lot of quash, amber cane, Spanish peanuta, peae and sweet potatoes will carry our hogs from May until December. Then a good plot of rape and rye to graze on with peas In the field supplemental with a small ration of corn, meat meal at oats will carry them through the winter In fine shape. Also the alnn from the kitchen and skimmed milk from the dairy add to their feed in an economical way. But be careful to have no acid or soap water thrown In the Hlops. Housing hogs In the south Is simple, as It is only necessary to put in two good posts with a strong scantling connecting them about four feet from the ground, facing the south, and leaning boards on the scantling lap ping well to keep dry. This, with good straw for bedding, Is all that Is uecestary. You should have enough reds of this kind to prevent hogs from crowding too much. Never allow thtm to sleep under houses, as the dust Is very Injurious. - To keep off lice I find crude cotton oil, two parts to one part of kerosene, excellent and Is a tonic to the hair. This may be applied with a mon or on a gTeaslng post. This post la -rade by placing any kind of post about four Inches In diameter in the ground and wrapping old sacks around six Inches above the ground, being held in place by staples or wire wrapped around. Then place the oil on this post and the hogs will grease themselves by rubbing. To prevent disease, keep premises as clean as possible, and It is well to change lots occasionally. In the fall and winter plow these lots well, which will allow soil to absorb all matter rapidly. Keep their bowels In good condition by green food. Here we have a great advantage, for we may have this food the year round, while In the GARDEN PLOW EASILY MADE One Person Can Do as Much With Implement as Three Can With the Ordinary Hoes. A garden plow is a very useful ar ticle but many people do not have enough garden to make It worth while buying one. I have a homemade plow tftat I find very useful. Any boy handy with tools can make one like It. A and B are pieces of 2 by 4. At one end of B a rectangular hole Is mortised Into which A fits and Is bolt ed. The other end of B Is mortised out to form the forks of the 12-lnch wheel, writes F. L. Doty of Lancaster county, Neb., in the Denver Weekly Post The wheel Is from any eld baby carriage, with the rubber tire removed. This leases a hollow shaped rim which rides over the ground bet ter than a flat rim would. D Is one of the tools which may be used for cul tivation. A small cultivator shovel will answer the purpose. Other tools Home-Made Garden Plow. for garden working will suggest them selves to the ingenuity of the maker. The two iron strips bolted from A to B have several holes at the upper end to make them adjustable. The handle braces are also of iron strips. The handles are made of soft pine. This plow does fine work and one person can do as much with It as three per sons can with ordinary hoes. Building Dairy Herd. Buying cows and selling them aa fast as they stop milking never built up a high class dairy business. The city milk producer Is not a true dairy man; he Is more a speculator in feeds and cows. Boar Is Not Everything. No matter how good a breeding boar you select, he cannot correct your defects as a feed, as well as those of the sows with which be fa mated. Hogs That Pay. Full blood or grade swlae will pay a handsome extra dividend. They cost more at the start, but are very satis factory in the long run. fold climates tliey lnto to resort to oil, tiieul, ftc, Mch Is much more rx Knslve. Should cue of the lg or larger hoKS become nick, stjiarate them at once from the herd. Give vry little but laxatives, as sulphute of niaKueitla and a few drops of turpentine. As a rule they will lm well In a ft lays. Should cholera appear in the community you may have your hoci inoculated lth serum, which will pr vent, or you may, after Inoculating with the serum, place a cholera hog with them and make your herd lm munn, as they become lnfwted, but so mildly that they soon lecover. and once Infected they do not contract the dlRease again. We also have the simultaneous treatment, which con sists of inoculating the hog with the serum and blood from a cholera bog at the same time. This Is said to give excellent results and you make immune your herd at any time by this method. Another treatment which has given me excellent renults, also a number of my nelRhbors. Is the Snoddy cholera remedy. This Is a black dark powder prepared by a vcterlnurlan, Ingredients not mentioned. This, when properly used, Is said to prevent or cure and has proven very satisfactory to me. These remedies properly applied, with enforcement of the laws In reference to burning or hurrying all dead poul try anJ animals, and extermination of the buxzard. the greatest source of carrying the germs we have, will erad icate the disease. Now for pork production you may use the pure breeds or crosses. Many of the crosses are good, but experience haa convinced me that the pure breeds Judiciously handled will be more prof itable. In making pork we should fatten our hogs In the fields at eight mcoths to twelvemonths old. The old plan of penning them is costly and troublesome. After running hogs on thf patches described above you may turn them on a nlocn nf mm an a allow them to hog It down, that is. gather the corn for themselves. They fattert rapidly artM there Is little or no waste, besides enconomy In gather lng the corn. To sum up: 1. Secure good stock with easy feed ing qualities. 2. Feed them well and keep them growing. 3. Have something growing for them all the year and not depend en tirely on the corn crib. 4. Remember hogs will not pay on pine straw and oak roots. 5. Keep hogs free of lice and give comfortable sleeping quarters. 6. Shade in summer and sunshine in winter. 7. Keep salt, ashes and charcoal so that they may have free access to them. 8. Treat tbem kindly and keep them gentle. 9. Do not keep vicious hogs unless you are the cause of their vicious ness. 10. Give freBta water and rlo not re quire the hlg to drink from a mud hole. 11. Feed a variety, the bog likes a variety as well as the human. 12. For profitable pork kill hogs at 8 to 12 months old. 13. Remember, the hog, like all other animals, must be fed regularly and treated kindly. 14. Love your work, keep at it and your efforts will be crowned with suc cess. CHEAPLY MADE MANURE CART Contrivance Put Together From Part of Old Grain Drill Proves Quite Satisfactory. We have a homemade manure cart we find very handy in keeping the manure from piling up around the barn. It la made of parts of an old Home-Made Manure Cart grain drill, writes E. C. Prather of Oakley, Kas., in the Farmers Mail and Breexe. The floor frame In made of the drill frame, boxings an;l all. The box tilts on the axle thereby dumping the manure after which It may be scattered. A pair of shafts compleU the cart. Hogs will always be clean if given the chance. Sometimes a change in milkers will cure a kicker. A gasoline engine on the average dairy farm sopn pays its wlty. See that the water fountains are disinfected frequently. The orchard should be the last place to plant Kafir and cane. Contrary to popular Ideas, pigs really thrive best when clean. Keep plenty of water before the lit tle chicks will hasten their growth. If your garden Is not where yon can get water on It, move the gar den. If the soil Is rich, plant sweet corn thickly. Otherwise It will sucker badly. Filth can't all be strained out of milk. The remedy is not to let it get in. The main factors In malting good butter are clean cream atd proper ripening. The hog that Is fed on one thing all the time makes slow growth and little pork. Pumpkins and squash planted late are less liable to Injury by the squash bug. Granulated charcoal should be kept before the little chicks. It will tend to prevent bowel trouble. Go round the fence corners now and cut every weed and brier yon can find. Mow out the corners of your mind. too. It will pay big. GENERAL V JaJ Practical Fashions MISSES' DRESS.

A retired profe3aor of mechanical engineering was called upon to de liver a few lecturee on invention to the senior engineering classes. His first injunction was that when one at tempts to devise a machine to do a certain thing one must consider direct ly the fundamental operations to be performed and must wipe from the mind all existing methods and all pre conceived notions. He stated that one so-called Inventor attempted, in the days of the ecythe, to Invent a mow ing machine. Being familiar only with the scytbe, he designed a horse drawn machine which would swing a scythe. He simply replaced the man by a mechanism. It 1b needless to say that his Invention did not survive. The problem of efficiently cutting hay and grain was not successfully solved until it waa attacked by a man with an open mind, and he devised the knife of the modern mowing machine or reaper. American Machinist. Truly Versatile Postman. The most versatile postman of any time, writes a correspondent, wa probably the late H. A.

"Oh, Harold," cried the small boy' mother, surveying the bedraggled fig ure of her darling, "why do you al ways manage to slip In the muddy places?" "Because, mamma, the dry places aren't muddy." No Place for Poor, Good Girl. "Where can the genteel poor girl Who finds herself in New York with out friends get a room for a few days while Bhe Is seeking a permament lo cation?" This question was asked by Miss Kathleen Clayburn Comegys, daughter of a former district attorney of New Orleans, and who haa made a etudy ot social conditions in New Orleans. In answering her question she said: "There is not a real place for such a young girl In this entire city, which practically has every other modern convenience and Improvement one could wish for. There are places for servant girls and girls who have gone wrong, but there is no place for the girl of extremely meager circum stances who belongs to neither class." Even In the Child Mind. This incident was related by Mark Twain with great glee about a certain little girl friend who "shone as an authoress." One day she handed her devoted sympathizer the sheets of a story which read thus: "A man was seated In a chair by the fireside brooding over his trou bles. He waa sad because his wife was dead. Suddenly a specter ap peared before him, and it was his wife. She said: 'Dear, I could not bear to see you so sad and discon tented, so I have come to comfort you. You must not be sad. You must be bright and happy. It was best that I should leave you when I did, because I was going to get a di vorce.' ' A Sweet, Crisp, Delicious "Bite-ToEat" Post . Toasties "a.
