Messrs , John I "itxiurnld iV Co. , ( con

aoino of tliu most , suvuro hoitdshipa

rend contrnotoifl , wna cotnplot d No
vember : iOlh , 1881. This tunnel is
1,77(5 ( feet in length , 10A
feet in height , nnd KJ fost in
width , is aroliod nnd timbered
with California redwood , shipjied from
that state by the Union Pixcitic rail
way at nn oxpcnsu of from SSO to
SI 10 per thousand , Four hundred
ind sixty thouaand feet of this timber
wnsuseAintho cotmtructioit of this
; unncl > Owing to the peculiar forma-
; ion and innko-tip of tins-part of th
luountaina it was necessary to use
ralso timbering as well us this rod-
wood. The underground workings of
this tunnel , and the diltlculties with
which it was carried on , form no small
: en t ure. of interest to the railroad nnd
mining enterprises of our stato. To
overcome ) the thousand and ono obsta
cles that flout the contractor ; ; like in
surmountable barriers reiittirod the
uost dominant ] iersuverauco and skill.
There was but from ICO to 200 feet of
rock in place in the whole work , show-
"ng conclusively that nt ono time this
was a very low pass , as the draws or
drninngo on cither side of the moun
tains go to prove. Three steams of
water , from live to seven inches in
diameter , wore cut and it wits/ with
ircat ; dilliculty that this loose , wet and
inuddy formation was kept back. Dur
ing the whole of the workings false
timbering was required , which was not
less than 1,500,000 feet , nil of whish
was cut nnd hauled under very great
difficulties. Itwas hnnlcd over the
mountain through from five to seven
Feet of snow , nnd over snow banks
from fifty to sixty feet in depth. The
western approach was completely
blockaded with snow. During the
storms of last whiter the men hud to
cut n shaft thirty feet in depth through
the snow to got down to their work.
tVt timeH the miners wore allowed to
work on tliu heading and' shove
Inck the material twenty feet
beyond the portal , when it was impos-
jiblo for them to work on the outside.
This was done to keep the work going
and keep the men from leaving the
works , all of which required handling
three times in plnco of ono , adding
three times the to the
tractors. It was very difiicult to got
inon in midwinter to work in such a
locality. None but tlio experienced
aid timers would or could stand it to
battle against the elements. During
some of these heavy storms lost win
ter the men had to go to their cabins
from the work in gangs , to keep from
being lost in the snow , and often had
their clothes frozen to their skin on
arriving in their cabins. Unless ono
could feel the effects of these wind
and snow storms on the main rnngo it
is * impossible to realize tbafa man
could not stand on his feet , but many
have been eye-witnesses to the fact
that it wes impossible to carry on
work without the dnngor of loss of
life or broken limb.
A weather record was kept by Wil
liam Osborne from the time ho started
until the finish , which the writer had
occasion to road , and it is only a won
der long to mo that even ono man ever
worked long in such a blizzurd region.
I can assure you but irco did show by
the pay-roll of having worked more
than a month at a time. Out of cer
tainly no less than 10,000 workingmen -
men who started to this tunnel , but
very few show a .longer record than
two days. Out of the thousands ship
ped out from the east by the Union
Pacific mil way ( by few transporta
tion ) , but few worked but u day or
two. Tlio high wages paid by the
contractors was the only inducement
tor men to stay nt nil. Labor
ing men often worked over
time nnd drew from § 100 to § 125 per
month. From 200 to 250 men wore
daily employed , of all colors and nn-
tionalitio" , and from all parts of the
world. It is believed that there never
was a work where there was no much
ilifliculty in keeping mun. They nt.
times would leave in a body , which re
tarded the work most eurionOy. No
liven have boim lost during the whole
workings of the tunnel. All of the
work was carried on by hand , which
proved to accomplish more ( in thin
elide formation ) thiin machinery which
was tried but to no elloct. Tlio put
ting in of abundant supplies at the beginning -
ginning of thib work was done by the
contractors , to the anumntof § 50,000 ,
and wits hauled from the end of the
railroad track , a distance of twenty-
five miles , at tlio OXIWIIHO of 8150 per
hundred pounds. ( Jetting the sup-
plic.i and materials to this wink over
the rugged mountains was no small
feature in this enterprise. On the
25d of May , J8H1 , a jack trail was cut
through sixteen foot of BIIOW to gain
the western approach , and a road was
cut through sixteen feet of snow over
the mountnins to get the red wood
timber to this western approach. Con
tending with the mud nnd snow on
these rugged mountain sides , nnd under -
der difliculties peculiar to this great
elevation , was one beyond the conception -
coption of men who have never seen
it. Eiuhtcon mules and throe horses
woer killed , besides nmnberlosa
wagons were smashed to atoms. The
whole work boara a record equal to

YOUIIK Fouls That Marry-
An exchange has the following
iom , which may seem to bn all right ,
jut it will got some young folio iv's
aack broke yet :
An Illinois justice has decided that
"courtship is n public necessity , and
must not bo interrupted ; therefore , if
a young man wanted to , kiss a girl he
might put her father out of the "room
first if bo liked. "
The publication of the above item
may cause some smart yoang man to
do something ho will regret. The
lame , sickly looking father of a girl
may cpmo ir to the parlor some night
and find the wnrin-haired youth on
tho.sofn with the gill , and when the
old man speaks of it being time to
put a stop to such nonsense , the
young man i ith the above judicial
decision in his mind , will tell his
prospective father-in-law to wipe off
nis vest and go to bod. The old man
will then spit on his hands and grasp
the warm Inured young man by the
county seat nnd.tie him up in a dou
ble bow knot and pin u scaron / him ,
and throw him out on the path to the
gnto , and then ho will turn and slap
the girl across whore the dress is pleat
ed , nnd she will go ujj stairs with'her
hand on her heart as it were , nnd the
old man will jump up nnd suy
"ivhoop ! " Tlio young men of thia
country have gall enough about visit
ing girls in the evening , at their homes
without filling their heads with any
snub idea in .regard to their legal
rights. There are few fathers who
would quietly submit to being told to
go awny by a young man with astripud
necktiu nnd pants too short at the bet
tom. TheHO speakers are looked upon
by the parent n as a nuisance , and
olten they are right. Nino-tenths
of the speaking is done by boys who
haven't ' got their growth , and they
look so green that it IB laughable to
the old folks to look at thorn. The
haven't ' generally got a second shirt ,
and thny nro no more qualified to got
married than a steer is lit to preach.
And yut marrying is about the first
thing they think of. A green boy ,
without a dollar , present or prospec
tive , talking about marryintr is a apeo-
tncle for gods and , men. He should
be reasoned with , and if ho will not
quit it until ho is able to support a
wife and to know the difference be
tween love and passion , ho
should bo quarantined or nut
in a convent erected on pur
pose for such ccscs. Nino-tcnths of
the unhappy marriages are the result
of green human calves being allowed
k > run nt largo in the society pasture
without any yokes on them. They
marry and have children before thuy
do mustaches ; they are fathers of
twins before they are proprietors of
two pairs of pants , and the little girls
they marry nro old women boforothey
nro twenty years old. Occasionally
ouo of thesi ) gosling marriages turns
out nil right , but it is a clear case ol
luck. If there was a law againni
young galoots ( marking and marrying
before they have got all their teetli
cut , wo suppose the little cusses woult
evade it some way , but there out-lit to
bo a Buntimont against it. It is" time
enough for these bantams to think ol
findinc a pullet when they have
raised money by their own
work to buy a bundle of laths to
build alien house. But they see a
girl who looks cunning , and they uro
afraid there is not going to bo girls
enough to go round , and they begin
to get in their worlc real spry , nnd ,
before they own a cookstovo or a bed
stead , they Imvo to get up in the
night nnd go after the doctor , so
frightened that they run themselves
out of breath , nnd nbuso the doctor
because ho does not run too , nnd when
ho gets there ho finds that there is not
linen enough in the honso to wrap up
a doll baby. It is about this time
thnt n younij man begins to realize
that ho has been n colossal fool , and
us ho fliesround to hent water , and

ALFRED KRUPP AT WORK.
"Whore the Zinrcont Guns in tlio
World nro Mndo.
/ondon ( Jiiocii.
The Germans are justly proud of
[ Icrr Alfred Krupp , the owner nnd
creator of the largest nnd most famous
'oundry in the world. Although con-
.iuually turning out immense castings
if iron and sieul for various purposes ,
t is for the noted cannon that the
> rcat establishment at Essen , in
Ithonish Prussia , has the widest repu-
: ation. Alfred Ivrupp is a native of
lesson , and is seventy years old. In
1820 the older Krupp died without
lenvim ; any considerable fortune to his
widow , who , with the assistance of her
HOII , carried on a small foundry until
1848 , when she retired in favor of her
assistant. Herr Ivrupp continued to
make great progress with his foundry ,
but without attaining any interna
tional reputation until the great ex
hibition of 1851 , when ho attracted
attention by sending to London a sin
gle block of stool weighing 1,500 ,
kilogrammes. In the 1802 exhibition
Herr itrupp was a most successful ex
hibitor , showing , among other samples
of his skill , n cast-steel block of 100
ewt. , which , being broken into halves
by a steam hammer of 1,000 cwt.was
found to bo perfectly clear and free
Ono specialty of llcrr Krupp's ox-
Itibit in 1851 must not bo passed by
without mention , nnd that ia his cast-
steel guns. The attention of the
French Government was particularly
attracted by this artillery , and tha ex
periments that Govornn unt made with
it afforded convincing proofs of the
practical value of the Lsson manufac
tory. These guns at that time were
of very small calibre , but Herr Krupp
was continually experimentalising
them , until ho finally succeeded in
producing those triguntic pieces of ar
tillery which are now world-famous.
Indeed , it is assorted that upwards of
15,000 cast-stool guns have , up to the
present time , been made by the Essen
establishment , nnd disposed of in vari
ous quarters of the globe. In the
Philadelphia Exhibition of 1878 , Her
Krupp exhibited many wonders that
startled even Americans , accustomed
as they are to all kinds of mechanical
Altogether tho'estublishmcnt covers
a superficial area of 1,000 ncrea , about
100 of which nre covered with build
ings. In the year 1877 the Krupp
foundry possessed 1I8 , ( ! various kinds
of furnaces , 2)8 ! ) steam boilers , 77
steam Imminuin , 208 steam onginca ,
ranging from two to one thousand
horso-powor , or , altogether 11,000
horse-power , and 1,01 ! ! ) other lands of
11 err Krupp , by means of an army
of 5,000 workingmen , is enabled to
turn out a monthly supply of 25C
fi'jld-pieces , thirty small and twenty-
four largo cnnnons , besides un onnr-
mous quantity of articles for peaceful
purposes. To keep all these foun
dries employed , Herr Ivrupp posscsuox
several mines in various parts of
Germany , and oven at Bilbao , in Spain ,
whence the metal is brought by a
regular lino.ofsteamers to the mouth
of the Ithino , and thence conveyed hy
rail to the furnace. Altogether the
number of people employed by Herr
Krupp in the performance of thcHO
various labors is little short of 10,000 ,
who all work together under their
employer's skillful direction with the
regularity of n machine The daily
consumption of coal by this army of
workers is about 2,200"tons. . The
crcatnro comforts and requirements
of bin people are carefully provided
for by Herr Krupp , Ho has had
3.277 dwellings erected for his
cli.'rkH and workmen , in which
everything needful him been thought
of. Fiio and life insuruncu , invalid
and pension societies , hospital , bath

Herr Krupp , their founder and bone
factor. IIerr Krupp , n few weeks
ago , had in his employ 2'i,000 , men ;
but new orders have just obliged bin
to hire an additional force of 8,000 ,
winch places him at the head of the
population of a small city more- thai
