Drifting Sand Dunes
Menace to Railroads
As one makes the ascent of the
Andes from the Pacific port of Mol
Icndo, hi Peru, following the line of
the Southern Pacific railway, the climb
to the divide is broken by two great
steps or wide-spreading shelve? of
desert or pampa.
On the first of these steps, about
two hours' steep climb from the sea,
and at an altitude of from 4,000 to
5,000 feet, are located the famous
drifting sand hills of Peru. The
plateau Is here about 20' miles wide,
the air thin and dry and no trace of
vegetation to be seen, only these
. gigantic crescent-shaped sand dunes
dotting the pampa as far as the eye
can see. Composed of fine gray crys
tal sand, they gleam white ngalnet the
. brown of the desert, and their horns
point toward the prevailing south wind
of this region. They are from 15 to
23 or even 30 feet high, 20 feet In
breadth across the thick part of the
crescent and sometimes 100 feet from

packed that the feet of the horses or
mules make little impression on It.
There sand hills, called nienanos,
travel with almost imperceptable slow
ness, and when they threaten the rail
way track they can sometimes be di
verted by piling up blocks of stone In
their paths, otherwise the railway bed
has to be altered to go around them
An analysis of the soil of this region
shows that it would be very fertile if
irrigated from the available snow fields
of the Andes, so that it is possible
there will come a day when its deso
late sand dunes will cease to be.

. Wyatt and His Cat
It Is said that Sir Henry Wyatt,
who was a privy councillor under
King Henry VII of England, always
had his picture painted with a cat
beside him, because when he was
confined by Richard III in a cold and
dark tower, where he had neither food
to eat nor fire to keep him warm, a
cat brought him resrularly every day a
pigeon for his dinner and kept the
warmth In his body by permitting Sir
Henry to caress her. He was an an-

The board of directors in the Ath
ena baseball association has decided
to use the old grounds for the games
this season. The principal reason for
making the change from the Kirk
grounds .was that the character of
soil was found to be too soft for quick
drying after a heavy rain." The old
diamond is one of the fastest in the
state, and considering the fact that
all trains will stop at the depot in
stead of on side tracks, as formerly,
the old grounds are much more pre
ferable in every way.
