Hut It Is impossible, do I henr you say? Just
a moment, while 1 quote you n fow, a very fow,
facts and llgures. Tho Oroya railway (El For
rocarrll Central dot Peru) Is a monument to the
genius or Henry Melggs, nn Amcrlcnn, or, rather,
I should say, a Unltod-Stateaof-North-Amorican,
for in tho southern hemlsphcro tho term "Ameri
cano" is not very definite and wo usually llnd
ourselves Indexed under "N" to distinguish us
from the United States of Colombia, United Mex
ican States, etc. Callao. thu Pacific terminus of
tho Oroya railway, und one of tho principal ports
of Peru, Is six days by boat south of Panama.
Lima, tho "City of Kings," Peru's capital, Is
six miles from Callao. and Is located on n broad
tableland about llvo hundred feet nbovo the sen.
Tho opening of tho Panama canal will undoubt
edly stimulate travel to South America, and of
all parts of the continent Peru Is wonderfully
rich In natural wonders am. historical back
ground. The Oroya railway was begun in 1SCS. Hogln
nlng at Callao It climbs steadily to an elevation
of 15,003 feet abovo sea level, where tho divide
is crossed through tbe Oalcra tunnol, at mllo
100. Tho Morococha branch rises to olovatlon
15,805 tho highest point reached by any railroad
In tho world. At Oroya, mllo 138, tho road di
vides, ono branch going north to tho famous
Cerro do Pasco copper mines, tho other 80 miles
south to Huancayo, with a projected extension
to Cuzco, tho old Inca capital, which has had
rail connection with tho sea at Mollendo for sov
oral years, Another branch, about three hundred
miles long, Is under construction down tho east
ern slope of tho Andes to the head of navigation
on tho Ucayall river, ono of tho Important upper
tributaries of the Amazon.
Tho Oroyn road Is not only tho highest In tho
world, but there is no other which lifts its breath
less passengers to any -tich altitudo in huch an
appallingly short dlstnnco. To climb as tho
Oroya climbs, a Hudson river train leaving New
York city would havo to ascend half an hour be
foro It reached Albany, a dlstanco J, 000 feet
greater that that from sea level $o tho summit
of Pikes Ponk. Tho dally passonger train leaves
Callao In the forenoon and reaches Oroya lato in
the afternoon. As there aro no night trains on
account of tho great danger or rocks falling down
in tho track, tho round trip ordinarily requires
two days. SInco thero la a continuous down
grade from tho Galora tunnel to tho soa, an op
portunity Is offerod for tho moat unique hand
car rldo In the world.
Through tho courtesy of tho gonoral manager
of tho lino wo wero afTorded exceptional facilities
for making the trip. His prlvato car was at
tached to tho evening train fo' Choslca, a fash
lonablo resort about thlrty-llvo miles out of Lima,
at an elevation of about two thousand eight hun
dred feet. For an hour or so we vound through
n wldo Irrigated valloy, fat and prosperous look
ing, with plantations of sugar cano nnd cotton
fenced in by mud walls, the roofs of .. hacienda
showing now and then over tho green. Hoyond
that tho haro brown mountains high enough, It
seemed, yet rjeally no moro than foothills shut
in and shouldered upward tier on tier behind
each other, yellow and terra cotta and tawny
brown, occasionally Hashing through a silt in
their flanks tho Miowy shoulders of peaks miles
and miles away, to which wo woro to climb. At
Choslca our car was sidetracked for thu night,
dinner was Eorved aboard, and wo turned In to
bo ready for an early start tho next morning.
About a. m wo wore awakened by our ear
being picked up by tho morning freight, whoso
schediilo had been advanced soveral hours for
our special benefit. Tho real climb now bogun.

Tho broad valley soon narrowed, tho linked rocks
closed In, nnd wo wero fairly in tho ennyon of
tho UIo Hlmiic. Twolvo miles out of Choslca an
clevntlon of 0,000 feet was reached at San liar
tolomo. Hero Is tho first switchback, Melggs'
original device, which ennbles a train to zigzag
up tho face of a canyon wall without resorting
to abnormally heavy grades and rack and cog
At Mntucana, 7,700 feet abovo tho sea, tho hand
car, which was to bo our means of descending,
was trailed on behind. Our Indlnn cook now
brought in coffee, prepared in tho Peruvlnn stylo,
which was very acceptable, hb tho air was qulto
chill. Then tho climb continued over spider-web
bridges, moro switchbacks, and numerous tun
nels, tho tunnels of tho Inflcrnlllo (Llttlo Hell)
opening at cither end of a bridge spanning a
chnsm over ono thousand feet deep. As tho train
wound nnd creaked along tho forehead of tho
mountain ono could look down on tho roofs of
villages miles below, nnt people and ant donkey
trains, and tho multitudinous little fields fenced
In with thick mud wnlls, which mado tho valloy
lloor a gigantic wafllo iron. Abovo thorn, on a
lovel with ono's eyes, nnd up and up, seemingly
to tho very top of some of tho mountains, wore
the old terraced fields of tho ancient Incas, grass
grown now with the turf of centuries. Tho old
terraces aro mostly In disuse now, but tho floldB
and graves of tho lower levels still uso sotno of
the old Irrigation troughs. Thoy wore cut In tho
rocks by n pcoplo who know neither cement nor
iron pipe, but thoy follow tho contours as
though plotted with a. transit. Somotlmcs, aB tho
cars creep along a canyon wnll half way to tho
top, ono can follow tho silvery ribbon of water
for miles along tho face of tho yellow rock.
Moro bridges, moro switchbacks, and ovor tho
air grows clearer and thinner and colder. Tho
Holds nnd gardens nro gono now, the bleak table

or nerves aro bothersomo would begin to havo

carrying silver nnd coppor ore. At Casapalca,

It wns now noon, and, In splto of tho unac
customed altitudo, wo ato n hearty Peruvian

courses, vegetables, wino, and fresh strawber

in 20 minutes (about 35 miles per hour). When
ono considers tho steep gradeB and tho sharp
curves necossnry to got a railroad through such
a canyon, tho fact that our light hand car, travel
