MANY NEW PROJECTS.
Santa Fe Company is Improving and
Shortening Line in Anion.
SAX FRAXOSCO. Sept. 18.-Under
the expansive policy of President Rip
ley the Santa Fe ha begun to forge
ahead with its many new projects and
is now trying to improve the main line
The route in Arizona is the center of
attraction. The company has under
process of construction a cutoff from
Daggett on the main line to Wicken
burg. The line is commonly known a
the California 4 Arizona road, but is
known to be under the control of the
Santa Fe. When this line is completed
many miles will be saved and the ser
vice will be greatly improved.
The Santa Fe is also considering the
construction of a line from Silver City,
X. M, to Winkleman, Ari. This will
give the train on the main line of the
Santa Fe an opportunity to go around
some of the worst tunnels and grades
on the road and would not make anv
material difference in the mileage. By
so doing it would pave the way for a
through route over the Santa Fe to i
Galveston.

strong elastic thread. Tbut the thread
Is strong Is well known. Indeed, there
are few substances that will support a
greater strain than the silk of the silk
worm or the spider, careful expert- j
ment having shown that for equal sizes :
the streugth of these fibers exceeds that I
of commou Iron. But notwithstanding
Its strength the spider's thread would j
be useless as a mechanical power if It j
were not for Its elasticity. The spider
has no blocks or pulleys, and therefore I
It cannot cause the thread to divide up
' I run In different directions, bot the !
uixticlty of the thread more than
makes up for this and renders possible
the lifting of an animal much heavier j
than a mouse or a snake. This may
require a uitio explanation. I
Let us suppose that a child can lift
six pound weight one foot high and
do this twenty times a minute. Fur
nish him with 3T0 rubber bauds, each
capable of pulling alx pounds through
one root when stretched. Let thoso
bands be attached to a wooden plat-;
form on which stands n pair of horses '
weighing 2,100 pounds, or rather more ;
than a ton. If now tbe child will go to ,
work and atretch these rubber bands j
singly, booking each one up as It Is 1
stretched. In less than twenty minutes
he will have raised the pair of horses j
one foot i
We thns see that the elasticity of the
rubber bands enables the child to dl- j
vide the weight of horses Into S50 ;
pieces of six pounds each, and, at the 1
rate of a little less than one every j
three seconds, be lifts all these sepa
rate pieces one foot, so that tbe child
easily lifts this enormous weight.
Each spider's thread acts like one of
tbe elastic rubber bands. Let us sup
pose that the mouse or anake weighed
half an ounce and that oacb thread Is
capable of supporting a grain and a
half. The spider would have to connect
the mouse with the point from which
it was to be suspended with 150
threads, and If tbe little quadruped
was once swung off his feet be would
be powerless. By pulling successively
on each thread, and shortening it a lit
tle, the mouse or snake mlrfht be raised
to any height within the capacity of
the building or structure ln which the
work was done. So that to those who
have ridiculed the story we may Justly
say, "There are more things ln heaven
and earth than are dreamed of ln your
philosophy."
What object the spider could have
had ln bis work I am unable to see. It
may have been a dread of the barm
which the mouse or snake might work
or It may have been the hope that the
decaying carcass would attract flies, I
which would furnish food for the engl-
leer. I can vouch for the truth of tbo
snake story, however, nnd the object
of this article Is to explain nnd render
credible a very extraordinary fent of
