Ground was broken in railroad grad
itig inside the limits of Ashland last
Tuesday morning, a scraper being set
at work in Helman's field. It is
thought that if the bridge timbers are
supplied from the north to meet tha
the requirements of the line between
Wagner creek and this place the road
will be completed to Ashland and the
freight depot built by sometime in
February. Mr. M. L. McCall will
begin this week to stake off in town
lots the tract of land adjacent to Ash
land which the railroad company
bought ot Mr. Applegate. Ttcontains
alwjut 130 acres. The depot grounds,
idn tracks, and warehouse lots will
occupy several acres, of course, but as
to how extensive or of what character
the railroad buildings will b we have
as yet no information. Neither can
we tell just upon what portion ot the
Appleg-tte tract the depot will be situ
ated, but this poiat will net be kept
from the public much longer, for It will
not be many weeks now before there
will be need of depot buildiugs hare.

When you see a medicine adver
tiscd, and neither know nor can hear
anything in regard -to its reliability,
it is an easy matter, by putting your
self to a little trouble to as:er'ain
the reputation and standing of the
manufacturer. Find out who makes
it. How do they stand at home? Are
they truthful? Are they hoaest? Do
they pay their debtst Do they know
anything about medicine and its effects?
If they are wanting in any of these,
it is safer to let their product alone;
for in preparjng drugs, mere than any
other business, there is the opportunity
to cheapen and adulterate, and the
only guarantee we can have is honesty
of its manufacturer, and it does not
look reasonable that the proprietor of
Ammeu's Cough Syrup would be will
ing to let a remedy bear his name did
he not know its worth.

The gravel train came op to this
place yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon
for the first time. There are in all
nine gang ef Chinamen, two gravel
trains and ana engine employed bal
lasting the read. This is dene in sec
tions, in the fallowing manner: as soen
as one section is completed as was the
case yesterday a gravel train is sent
forward about three miles beyond the
end of the last section, where it is un
loaded, the gravel being merely shov
eled off the cars alongside the track.
The train is then font back to the pit,
whero it is left to be reloaded while
the engine takes the other train for
ward; two gaDgs of Chinamen remain
ing in. the pit to load the cars, and one
gang at the front to unload them.
In this lat'er gang are forty two
men. lhese men remain at the tront
and cast a portion of the gravel on tha
track between tho ties. This is called
The train always brings up enough
gravel to ballast its own length of
track. Each succeeding train now in
stead of going forward of this freshly
ballasted portion of the track, is stopp
ed and unloaded between it and the
end of the former section. All the
gangs employed also come to the front
and work back m the same manner
The reason of this will readily be seen
when the whole process is described.
Working about half a day behind
these men last mentioned comes
another gang of Chinamen who raise
the track and "tramp points and cen
tres;" that is. they go to the extreme
front of this last section, and, also
working back, raise the track and
tramp gravel beneath the ties at the
joints of tho rails and also at their
middle, to keep the track at the proper
height. This gang is under two fore
men, one of whom being a man of much
experience in the business goes for
ward with half the gang raising the
track and tramping one side, raising it
to the proper height by tho end; while
the second foreman with the other half
of the gang conies -after raising and
tramping the other side, raising it to
the prsper height by a sort of spirit
level and gauge combined, which one
of tho Chinamen carries along for this
Foflowin; this gang come two other
gangs, working one opposite tho other,
who tramp the gravel under the end
of the ties. Then comes another ging
'tramping centers;" that is, the
tramping th: gravel under that portion
of the ties between the rails. Follow
ing lb?se comes another gang filling
with gravel all the space between the
ties. Finally, a small gang comes
along whose cola business u to 'litis
up' the road. It is then ready to turn
over to tho section men.
My old friend Captain Hyzer, whom
1 found in charge of these gangs, and
who, after kindly alluding to my de
scription of laying track, published in
the last Sentinel, very courteously
gave me much information in regard
to the method of ballasting the road,
tells me it is tho talk that another
train will be added soon and the force
increased. E. W. Hammond.

From this earth and friends away,
To the rclms of the immortal,
To the never ending day.
Nothing now can grieve or harm her.
She is taken to her rest.
And her little hand's are folded
On her cold and snowy breast.
She has crossed the raysty waters
For to live in heaven above.
Where she'll meet her little sister,
In that land of light and love.
Farewell Bertha, farewell loved one,
Thou art resting on that shore,
Singing with that little sister,
Happy now forcTcr more.

Relics or the Indian Wars.
When Mr. T. J. Matlock was in
Southern Oregon, says the "Yindica,
tor," a few weeks ago be made a trip
to the ruins of old Fort Lane in quest
of relics. In an old log that once
formed a part of the fort he saw some
bullet holes and with an axe took out
a chip which contains two; they were
shot into it by the Indians in an at
tnck in 1832. In looking aracng the
debris he found a piece of granite from
the corner of the foundation which be
will have polished and cut into a paper
weight. An old, rustr horseshoe is
another relic uf those days, and this he
will hang ovor his otlice door. These
old souvenirs of the lndiau wars are
interesting to look at and will in time
be quite valuable. Where war and
bloodshed were holding high carnival,
when the pioneers first came here, now
is smiling peace and waving Gelds of
grain and happy homes. "Hesperian."
