Natural ly the most interesting feature of ili.- j report relat. s to the operations in th.- great Cul.-bia cut Here, great I.tiid- slldrs. many ranking with an .Al>in'' avalanche in magnitude, have so increased the amount of material to be ••\caviit.d. that were it not found possible to st.-adily reduce the cost per vardol dr.-d'-'in'; and steam shoveling through the •-•rowing expeniiess of th.- emidoytvs. s-nd improved engineering inethotls, the total cost of excavation wouUl have been vastly jTcater than I the <'>stimat< s. During the last year ! nearly ir..".Oi>.('.iil cubic yards of earth j wer.- taken oui of this cur. leaving t'carly li.ii.irt.iiDo lo !>•• displaced l», fore the canal can h<-- opened. Th.- j Jat'iage caused by the slides may b.- I 'ilinrei iaied from the fact that nearly ' O.OOii.iHW yards of earth excavated i was so composed or nearly 36 per cent ' rvf the total excavation. There is only one way to deal with these slides, and that is to dig them out as they occur, {hough some help Is gained by terracing the upper banks. That is because the geological formation changes so frequently and suddenly that no other effective ; treatment has been found. So unstable is the earth that the material in one part of the cut begins to move on I an inclination as low as 1 to 7; owing to the mass of stratified rock sliding over a layer of lignite. On.- slide now in motion, near the bridge Culebra. covers an area of 63 acres, j from which 2,710,0l»0 yards have already been removed, leaving 1,300,000 still to be handled. Then there is another little slide of no less than 50 acres on the opposite side of the canal. , The r"«!iilt of these earth movements which are quite e.xceptlonal in engineering practice, has been to leave the canal In its deepest portions with very flat slopes. The encouraging f.^ature ol the hi-avy work at that point is found in the statement in the r.jport "that none of the slides which occurred during the year would have interf.-r- ed with the passage of ships bad th. canal been in operation." Already the appropriations mad.- by Congress for the canal have run into big flgureH, the total up to June 30, last being $29.1,3til.4ii8, and since that date there have lH>en additional appropriations, exclusUe of those for lortificalions, ainounliiig to $2>i,!iS0.- 000 making a grand total of $3L'2.54I,- 4i!S. f)n Jiini' 30 of all these appropriations, till' engine.-rs had exp<-nil- ed on per cent of the total estimated cost of the canal. Of even greater Interest from an engineering point of view, than the vast but commonplace work of e.xca- vatlon of Culebra Cut, was the work of constructing the great locks at.] Gatun, and Miraflor.s, and I'edro Miguel, for there many problems have been solved, and lock iiiachlner.v constructed of special designs of a magr nitude never before heard of. For instance, so big are the valves at the side of locks that a test showed that it required a pull of over ten tons on the stem to open one of these valves. All this'work Is done electrically, and here again the engineers were confronted with new difliculties. Owing to the peculiar climatic conditions on the Isthmus, with tropical heat and extreme humidity, and tbe deterloriating effect of these cond.i- tions on the insulation of electrical machinery, the ordinary insulation JCmas Xmas — Photographs for Christmas Of Course! — ^ Gifts?

Th.> largetst congregations for some •Ime attended the pr»>achlnK aervlce.-t vesterday. .\t 11 o'clock Mr. Moody, nreached on the subject "FYom the Ganlen to the City." the sermnif show- ;M1 careful preparation and tntiinate • ontact with men and practical affairs. The imstor said, the climax of God's, creation was man in his prestine purity. God created man In his own •mage, endowing hira with intellect. VlU and sensibilities, "And the Lord planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He "lad formed, and out of the ground mode the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to sight and good for food." Men have tried to paint With- nen and word the real significance and beauty of (Jods paradise for man and utterly failed, for human langtiage cannot express the products trf the divine architect's brain or hand. Every phild brought into this world is bom In to the Garden of Eden—the Garden of Innocence and treads tbe flowery- paths of virtue and purity until he yields to the relentless attacks of tbe emmlssaries of sin. .AH of us are Adams and born in the Garden of Innocence and must pas.=i out for ever.. Adam cannot retur nto the Garden of Innocence. If we cannot return to the Garden, we can go forward to the Garden of Holiness, the. Temple of worship. The fall does not mean death, but a rise, an ascension, for man is pro ieittined to holiness, man Is bound for heaven If the train bearing the soul of man is wrecked, the catastrophe will from the fact that man has blocked the track by refusing to obey •llvlne commands. WTien we reach the city of Holiness we are ready for the city of Goil^the new civilization. The leru*alem of old was a place where the presence of Go<I wan, but the .Tem- snlem of old was only a foreshadow of the coming of the Now Jerusalem. Christ came to build a .«plrltpal city in the hearts o fnien. I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundaiitly. A large audience listened very attentively in the evening while the pastor pre.sented, in a very able manner, the subject, "The .Man \Vho Was Not as Good as His Word."
