Effect of Passing; Tears on Toothful
Kansas City Journal.
The most of us foil to reach our ideal,
not because we strive too hard after It,
but because we are so lazy or weak we
do not really strive after it at all. Most
young men, and especially most educated
young men, mean when they start upon
life to be Industrious and honest. The
young physician, the young lawyer, the
young business man usually has a whole
some aversion for the old practitioner or
financier who has failed through laziness,
or succeeded by malpractice or stealing.
But too often tt happens that those who
start with such creditable feelings get first
to pitying the vices of their elders and
then to embracing them. They don't be
come rascally,, perhaps; they merely grow
"practical." For the sake of a few dollars
they forget or cast aside their younthful
Ideals, not seeing that at the same time
they may be sacrificing the larger gains,
the respect Of their fellows and the true
pleasures which would be the ultimate
fruitage of determined endeavors to live
up to their early Intentions. There is noth
ing In life more melancholy than these
ruthless sacrifices of Ideals In business,
In the professions, In politics, in order to
get fortunes or positions which are only
badges of disgrace to their possessors after
they have got them. "Our ordinary prac
tice," as Montaigne says, "Is to follow

EPOCH IN RAILROAD BUILDING

HISTORY RELATED BY GENERAL DODGE
Early Servers, Location of Line and
Manner of Building Dlfllcaltlea
Overcome by Energy
General Orenvir.e M. Dodge, chief en
gineer of the construction of the Union
Paclflo railway, told the story of the in
ception and construction of the great high
way of the west at the seml-centennlal of
the organisation of Nebraska as a territory.
He spoke as follows:
Private enterprise made the explorations,
determined the line and built the Union
Paclflo railway. Although the government
spent an Immense sum In surveying three
other routes, It did not touch the most
feasible route, that of the forty-second
In 1862 Farnham and Durant were build
ing the Mississippi & Missouri road, now
the Rock Island. They desired to end that
line on the Missouri river where the Paclflo
railroad, crossing the continent along the
forty-second parallel of latitude, would
commence. Under the direction of Peter
A. Dey, who waa then the chief englneei
of that Une, I made the first survey across
the state of Iowa and the first recon
naissances and surveys on the Union Pa
clflo for the purpose of determining where
the one would end and the other commence,
on the Missouri river. I cronaed the Mis
souri river In the fall of 1S53 and made our
explorations west to the Blatte valley and
up It far enough to determine that it would
be the route of the Paclflo road.
The party that I crossed the Missouri
river with had never come in contact with
the Indians. We were tenderfeet and the
Omahas were very free with what we had,
until I used drastic measures to stop them,
I went on to the Elkhora river ahead of
my party. They stole my horse, but I got
him back, so that our Initiation Into Ne
braska was not a very creditable one. Mr.
J. E. House of Omaha was my principal
assistant and remained with mo until the
completion of the road and I am glad to
have this opportunity to pay my tribute
to his able and faithful services.
I continued these reconnaissances from
1853 on and off up to 1861. under the private
patronage of Mr. Henry Farnham, and we
also during that time commenced work of
the Mississippi V Missouri road in Council
Bluffs and graded it several miles east,
fixing its location permanently on the Mis
souri river. The reconnaissances made by
me during all this time, with the informa
tion that I obtained from the Mormons and
the fur traders and travelers through the
country, determined the general route of
the Union Paclflo road as far west as Salt
Lake City and virtually beyond that to the
California state Una
Conference with President Lincoln.
In 1882 the Union Pacific railway was or
ganized at Chicago and soon after Mr.
Peter A. Dey oonllnued the explorations,
and in 1S03 he placed parties over the Black
Hills and over the Wasatch mountains in
Utah. In 1863 I was on duty at Corinth
when I was called to Washington by Mr.
Lincoln, who had met me In 188 at Council
Bluffs and had questioned me vory sys
tematically of the explorations and knowl
edge of the country I had west. Remem
bering this, hs called me to Washington to
consult with me as to where the eastern
terminus of the Union Paclflo railway
ahould be located. I explained to him what
my survey had determined and he fixed the
initial point of tho Union Pacific, as you
all know, on the western line of Iowa, op
posite this city. At this Interview with
Mr. Lincoln he was very anxious to have
the road constructed. It was my opinion
then that It could not be constructed ex
cept It was built by the government and
X so Informed Mr. Lincoln. He said that
the United States bad at that time all It
could handle, but It was ready to make
any ooncesslon and obtain any legislation
that' private parties who would undertake
the work would require.
I then went to New York City and met
Mr. Durant and others connected with, the
Union Paclflo and informed them of what
Mr. Lincoln had said. It gave them new
hope and they Immediately formulated the
amendments to the law of 1M2, which was
passed In 1864, and enabled them to push
The ground was broken here In Omaha In
December of 1862 and in 1804 about J500.0UO
was spent in surveying, and in 1866 forty
miles of road was completed to. Fremont
Mr. Dey, who had charge of the work up to
this time as chief engineer, resigned, and
stated In his letter that he was giving up
the best position in his profeesion this
country had ever offered to any man.
In May, 1866, I resigned from the array,
came to Omaha and took charge of the
work as chief engineer and covered the
Une with engineering parties from Omaha
to California and pushed our location up
the Platte valley.
In 1866 we built to North Platte. In the
winter of 1866 we planned to build the next
ISO miles to Fort Banders. As our work
had to all be done under the protection of
the military I was continually In com
munication with General Sherman, who
was then the commander of this military
division, and confidentially gave him our
plana as fast as they were settled upon.
In January, 1867, I wrote him a letter
showing him what we proposed to do In
that year, and he answered It xfrom St
Louis on January, 1867, saylngi "I have
Just read with Intense Interest your letter
of the 14th. Although you wanted me to
keep It to myself, I beUeve you wlU sanc
tion my sending It to General Grant for hla
Individual perusal, to be returned to ma
It is almost a miracle to grasp your prop
osition to finish to Fort Sanders this year,
but you have done so much that I mis
trust my own Judgment and accept yours."
During 167 we reached the summit of the
Black Hills and wintered at Cheyenne,
where the population of nearly 10,000 gath
ered around us.
In November, 1867, the Northwestern
railway was completed at Council Bluffs.
Up to this tlms the amount of road we
built each year waa limited to the material
that we could bring up the Missouri river
on steamboats during about three months'
navigation. Reaching the Black Hills also
took us Into the timber country, where we
could obtain ties within twenty-five or
fifty miles from the Una It was then
planned, during the winter of 1867. to build
as far west as possible, and we laid out
plans to reach Ogden, giving us BOO or more
miles to build. In estimating the extra
cost of building this OOO miles, which
erosaed two ranges of mountains, within a
year, I Informed the company that It would
be at least 210,000,000. Their answer was to
go ahead, no matter what It cost
Tho Last Great Rash.
During the winter of 1867 we accumulated
at Cheyenne all the material possible, hav
ing the Northwestern to bring it to us, snd
we mads every preparation to start our
work by the first of April. When you con
sider that material for a mile of road re
quired forty cars, besides the necessary
cars for supplies and for the population
that was along the line of the road, you
can Imagine what It was to supply the ma
terial at the end of the line, which on an
average had to be hauled about 800 miles;
but Snyder and Hoxla of the operating
department grasped the situation and
solved the problem. We reached Ogdsh In
the spring of 186 and Promentofy on May
During the winter of ffl the grading was
dona over the Wasatch mountains, and
the earth was blasted there the same as
rock. Our track was laid on snow and Icy
banks. I saw one of the casement trains
slide off of the bank bodily Into the ditch,
loaded with material.
The success of our plans depended upon
the handling of the material at the end of
the track and putting it in place. This
duty fell upon Genernl Jack and Dan Case
ment They had the largest and most com
plete and best organization ever seen In
such work, and laid more track In the
same time and under similar conditions
than has ever been laid before or since.
From the 1st day of April, 1S68, until May
10, lRr,9, only thirteen months, we located,
built and laid track of 655 miles of road
and graded the line to Humboldt Wells,
making the total distance covered by our
force 726 miles, and transported all the ma
terial and supplies from the Missouri river.
When you consider that not a mile cf this
division of the road had been located until
April, that we covered In that year over 700
miles of road, bringing all the material
from the Missouri river; that we had to
overcome Its two great physical obstacles,
two ranges of mountains, It was a task
never equaled then nor surpassed slnoe.
It could not havs been accomplished had
It not bren for the experience we all had
In the civil war.
Task of the Engineers.
In determining the line of the Union Pa
clflo from the commencement of the sur
veys In 1863 to the completion in 1869, over
16,000 miles of instrumental line was run
and 25,000 miles of reconnaissances made.
The Indians were very hostile during the
surveys and construction of the road, often
attacking us. I lost two of my chiefs and
many of the men and a large number of
stock, but they failed to atop the work or
drive away the parties, and If It had not
been for the cordial support of General
Grant and General Sherman and the offi
cers of the army along our lines, we would
not have succeeded. Brlgham Young and
the Mormons also were of great aid. They
bent all their energies In executing the
work through Utah.
The commission of distinguished engineers
appointed by the government to examine
the work says: "Taken as a whole, the
Union Paclflo railway has been well con
structed. The energy and perseverance
with which the work has been urged for
ward and the rapidity with which It has
been executed was without parallel In his
tory. In grandeur and magnitude of the
undertaking it has never been equnled."
It is Impossible for me In the short time I
have to speak Individually of the persons
who took prominent part In the construc
tion of the Une, but they entered into the
work all with one spirit. They worked
from daylight till dark, and when neces
sary on Sundays, and there was an esprit
de corps and a determination from the head
to the foot of everyone to accomplish the
task set before them.
rnltlng- Two Lines.
When our track was finished to Promon
tory .there assembled there the officials
from the east and from the west The
locomotive engineers of the two lines ran
their locomotives together, each breaking a
bottle of champagne upon the other's en
gine, and when the last spike was driven
and the telegraph ticked all over the world
the completion of the first transcontinental
Une across our continent, I did not for
get to telegraph to my old chief, General
Sherman, who had taken such a great In
terest In the work and received from him
this dlHpatch: -
"WASHINGTON, May 11, 1869.-General
O, M. Dodge: In common with millions, I
sat yesterday and heard the mystic taps
of the telegraphic battery announce the
nailing of the last spike In the great
Pacific road. Indeed, am I its friend?
Yea; yet, am I a part of It, for as early
as 1854 I was vice president of the effort
begun In San Francisco, under the contract
of Robinson, Seymour & Company. As
soon as General Thomas makes certain
preliminary Inspections In his new com
mand on the Pacific, I will go 'out and, I
need not say, will have different facilities
from that of 1846, when the only way to
California was by sail around Cape Horn,
taking our ships . 196 days. All honor to
you, to Durant and Jack and Dan Case
ment, to Reed, and the thousands of brave
fellows who have wrought out this glorious
problem, spite of changes, storms, and even
doubts of the Incredulous, and all the ob
stacles you have now Wpplly surmounted.
"W. T. SHERMAN, General."
Character of the Comments.
Tho rapidity of the building of ths Union
Faclflo railway caused many comments and
often times assertions that the road waa
not thoroughly built; that to make distance
and thereby receive more bonds, we un
necessarily Increased the length of the
road; that, to save work, we often used
the maximum grade, and other criticisms.
The best answer to all these has been
made in the last three yeara The Union
Pacific, under its very able chief engineer,
Mr. Barry, has been engaged In reducing the
grades of the road, except at two points
In the two mountain ranges, to maximum
of forty-three feet per mile. It has ma
terially decreased the curvature and short
ened the line some thirty-seven miles. To
obtain this it has cost ths Union Paclflo
Railroad company nearly one-third the
total cash cost of building the road. Mr.
Barry In his report upon these changes
pays this high compliment to those con
nected with the location and construction
of the road: "It may appear to those un
familiar with the character of the country
that the great saving In distance and re
duction ef grade would stand as a criti
cism of the work of the pioneer engineers
who made the original location of the rail
road. Such Is not the case. The changes
made have been expensive and could be
warranted only Jy tho volume of traffic
handled at the present day. Too much
credit cannot be given General a. M. Dodge
and his assistants. They studied their task
thoroughly and performed it well. Lim
ited by law to a maximum gradient of 111
feet to the mile, not compensated for
curvature, they held It down to about
ninety feet per mile. Taking into con
sideration the existing conditions thlrty
flve years ago lack of maps of the country,
hostility of the Indians which made United
States troops necessary for protection of
surveying parties, dlffloult transportation,
excessive cost of labor, uncertainty as to
probable volume of traffic, limited amount
of money and necessity to ret road built
soon as possible It can be said, with all
our present knowledge of ths topography
of the country, that the Una was located
with very great skill.",

book. Just " as the summer girl congratulates
herself upon the possession of a spick and
span dainty wardrobe, she finds herself
confronted with the problem of oaring for
it of keeping It ever fresh and orisp and
new looking. The sun's rays, sudden show,
ers, the mists of dull evenings, all play
havoo with delicate fabrics. Then, too,
the summer girl at hotel or boarding house
has few conveniences for cleaning and
caring for her clothes.
There are some things which no summer
re sorter should be without, if she wishes
her wardrobe to play its pretty part all
through her stay.
She should have plenty of clothes hangers,
so that one dress is not hung upon an
other. She should have an ample supply of tissue
paper, which la essential for wrapping- deli
cate garments, particularly laoe, silk and
She ahould have at least one pair of shoe
trees more If she can afford them.
She should take her own supply of
cleansing fluids and Implements, as such
articles are not only more expensive at
resorts, but sometimes hard to get. For
this purpose she should have some soft
handkerchiefs, a piece of silk and a piece
of flannel cloth, and a small stove and iron,
to be attached to an alcohol lamp or a gas
Jet, not to do laundry work, but to keep
flchus, ribbons and other dainty accessories
ln good condition.
Hake Use of Closets.

hotel be supplied wlUi closets, shs wlU
And, tucked In some corner, probably at
the head of her bed. a shelf, presumably
for the disposition of hat boxes. Under
It will run a piece of narrow board, with
hooks or nails. If she expects to remain
any length of time It will pay her to fit
this corner up as an extra closet at once.
She should Invest a dime or two In the
sort of wire hooks which can be screwed
Into the shelf and hang down to hold the
wire racks on which her frocks are hung.
Then she will take the measurements of
the shelf, and from 5-cent calico, ln a
summery, flowery design, she will make a
curtain to hang around the shelf and com
pletely envelop the clothes bung behind it.
This curtain should have ample fullness
and keep out all dust. Cheese cloth will
look more dainty, but the calico will keep
out the dust better.
Shirt waists hung over wire racks will
look much fresher than If (aid away in
drawers. Lacs and silk waists should be
wrapped In blue tissue paper and laid away
ln drawers, each waist having its slseves
stuffed with tissue paper and holding a
long, narrow sachet bag.
A moist gown should never be hung
among fresh, starched clothing, but should
be dried and cleaned before finding Its place
ln the closet.
Never hang a daintily trimmed and
flounced summer gown inside out. Better
save a trifle on the trimming and buy a
bag or cover of cheap muslin to protect
it. If the closets are not dust proof. Do
not allow skirts to drag on the floor of the

mud may come off, but It leaves a faint
stain, particularly on the new, light
clothes popular for this season's outing
If when the actual mud has Veen cleaned
away there remams the fatal ring of
stain, let the summer girl ask her landlady
for a raw potato, and use her grandmother'
method of removing mud stain. Wash,
pare and again wash the potato, then cut
It through the center, and rub the dress
with the smooth surface. When this be
comes soiled, cut off a thin slice of the
tuber and rub It with the fresh surface.
Continue this until the dirt has been
completely absorbed by the potato.
The lace, chiffon and ribbon accessories
of the summer girl's toilet require ex
quisite care. They ohould never be
crowded carelessly Into boxes, but care
fully separated by crumpled tissue paper.
If the loops of ribbon in bows or choux
ara large, they should bo stuffed with
tissue paper. Veils should be rolled and
not folded. A long, slender piece of wood
or an oblong piece of heavy cardboard la
excellent for rolling veils.
Washing- the Little Thin as.
White feathers, most extravagant of all
the summer girl's appointments, can be
washed thus: Make warm suds from a
pure white soap, dip ths feathers In and
shake them about lightly. Directly the
water becomes dirty, make a second lot of
suds, repeat the washing and rinse several
times ln clear, tepid watr. Then lay
them tn tepid water. Then lay them be
tween soft old cloths and put them In a
very cool oven, shaking them out oc
casionally. When perfectly dry, curl them
on the blunt edge of a knife blade. The

The careful summer girl does not trust
her water soaked shoes to the obliging
porter. Instead, she slips them from, her
feet directly upon a pair of trees, and
there they stay, drying Into shape. When
perfectly dry, she rubs them with . a bit
of vaseline, using a soft cloth. Rendered
soft and pliable by this treatment, she
slips them on her feet, and the hotel shoe
polisher does the rest.
If the water soaked shoes happen to be
patent leathers, she can do nothing better'
than to sponge them lightly with milk
and vigorously rub them with a strip of
old. soft, black silk. Mflk softens the
