jPelilo canal as a structure of CO'
fnent and solid rock of such

have a project here at home not
bo far from rivaling the Panama
banal. In fact for a wonderful
scenic view there 'are few places
more picturesque or grand in

as follows: "I venture ' to say
fhat nowhere in all America has I
Nature been so lavish in the
Varied things she has collected
