tha final lap of th work ot running th
International boundary Una between the

Lake to th Padflo ocean for a dis
tance ot UOt mtlea and last summer
th work was completed op to th Red
riverninety mile from the Lak of th
Woods, a small lak conaected with
Lak Superior.
Th work waa don by American aad
Canadian working together, and the
story of the many danger and hard
ship encountered by th men Is full of
Interest from start to finish. Commis
sioner O. H. Tittman, of th Coast nd
Oeodetlo Survey for th United State
end Commissioner W. F. King of Can
ada war the men Intrusted with the
carrying out of th plans, with .th ex
ception of that part of tb line running
through th Great Lakes,
Lines Seeded MefrklasT.
Th boundary line from th summit
of th Rocky mountain to th Gulf of
Georgia had been located by th former
commission about lata. At this time
th country for th most pert was aa
unknown wilderness, and It was barely
possible for th men to local tb forty-
ninth parallel by astronomical observa
tion from such point as were access
ible. This left long stretches of coun
tryfrom Ot to twenty-seven mile In
which no attempt had beea mada to
mark th boundary on th ground. While
th early engineers had definitely settled
th location of th boundary by stating
that th boundary Ifara should be straight

ready aad shown cm tha map of that
commission, it waa th duty of th men
ef thli party ta Join these widely sep
arated monuments by straight line to
cat a vista twenty feet wide, tea feet
on either aid of tb line, through dens
forests: to locate th poet t ion and erect
permanent ssoaumcata at Intervals of

order to reach the various points where
monuments had to be set as.
After the straight line Joining tbe twe
adjacent monuments had been located aad
slgnsls were erected on permanent point., '
th next work waa to eut the vista. This
work was usually superintended by msa. accompanied by ta or fif
teen aa men, th transit maa going ahead
and marking th line as best hs could,
with th ax men following dose as pos
sible. All th trees were covered with
snow and th first blow of th ax brought
down great quantities of mow, which
would trtckl dowa the back of the necks
of th ax men. In aom case tree tight

Many Interesting Incidents srs related
by the engineer who took part la this
work, snd who are now In Washington
getting ready for their last trip to th
northwest K C. Barnard tells ef a tlm
near the end of last season when th
party waa mor tbaa MS mile from Hs
ban of suppHes, and th pack train with
food bad become lost.' Although their sup-
pile were exhausted the men preferred
to remain aad complete th work, -for
mor than two day subsisting on nothing
but dried prunes, and after completing
this part of tb work they climbed more
than t) feet straight up tb side of a
mountain. In order to reach on ot their
camps where food could be secured.
While the llnc-cuttlng was being carried
on th topographers war also doing their
work, which consisted ot making map ot
th physical featurea ot the surrounding
country, oa which - were shown th
streams, trails, roads, bouses, mountain
peaks, and, in fact everything ta relation
to th boundary Una.
"la th execution ef th! work th
men frequently endured great hardship,''
Mr. Sinclair saya "I remember dis
tinctly th difficulty w had In reaching
som of th triangular stations, whan
trip bsd to be mads of twe and three
days, where th climbing was so diffi
cult everything possible had to be dis
pensed with, and th men could not even
carry blankets. This. It will be remem
bered, waa don shore th snow line.
It was dangerous climbing, too. where a
angle misstep meant being dashed t
pieces oa th rooks, M feet below. They
could carry only a limited amount -of
food., and th food, together with the
instruments, mads a pack as heavy as
a man could carry. It waa exceedingly

In this connection a good story la told
of on of th men who was to lasy to

la tb act of adjusting the rope around
his body It slipped and caught him
around th legs, and he was pulled up
feet foremost for a dlstane of mor than
MD feet and finally landed oa th top ot
th dlff. This man never again asked
his comrade to pull him op th aid of a
dlff. but did all his climbing alone. '
Thorns Rlggs,' one of the ehglneers of
the party, tall a good story of a terriflo
windstorm, lis said: "One morning
while we were in camp a frightful storm

cook was sitting at th door, and th
trunk mlnsd him by a foot or two. He

gasoline tank, which took fir from his
