Across the Sahara.
If the United States could cross our
continent with railroads, or if Russia can
span Asia with a line of rails,why cannot
France cross the Sahara desert with a
railroad? Possibly it can. A beginning
has been made in that mammoth under
taking. But the difficulties are incalcul
able. As soon as those that are now
known shall be overcome, others will
arise. Consider for an instant the enor
mous obstacles to making a railroad
1,500 miles long through a territory with
out wood for ties, without water .without
everything required to sustain life.
Railroads have been constructed
through countries to which all the mate
rial required have had to be carried.
But there is a country that does not even
supply water for the men who must do
the work. The sand storms that have
buried a thousand caravans are liable to
arise and wipe out all traces of man and
his work. Yet this stupendous work is
now very seriously contemplated by the
French government. When it is under
taken the rails will be laid from oasis to
oasis, which lie like islands in the great
ocean of the desert. As it approaches
the south the trunk line may be divided,
one arm to run to Lake Tchad and the
other to strike the Niger above Timbuc
too, from which point steamers could
descend to Senegambia. The work may
cost hundreds or even thousands of mil
lions of dollars.—New York Mail and
Readers of the Gazette will remember
that a man named Soderberg was inj ured
on the B. & M. railroad last May, by be
ing run into by a freight train, while
working along the track as a section
hand. He has never recovered from the
injuries received and is at the present
time is in pretty bad shape. He has,
through his attorney, Ed. L. Adams,
commenced proceedings against the
railroad company for $10,000 damages.
The petition is filed, but the issues will
not be joined in time to be heard at the
next term of court.—Minden Gazette.
