the master of transportation
of the Panama railroad, saying:
"Mr. Runnels has offered to take you
out through the cut this afternoon and
explain the work to you." ;
Runnels was a straight, well set up.
serious young man. Anthony was
drawn to him instantly, for there was
no affectation about him.
"She's wonderful." he remarked a
moment later, as lit and Kirk descend descended,

'The'Cortlandts seem to have consid considerable

I'd have to begMn at the bottom."
Runnels glanced at his companion
"Outsiders! You don't call them out outsiders?

but the United States interfered in

tbe excitement had died out we had
begun digging. She knows Central
America like the palm of her hand.
When she says Kirk Anthony wants a
position, we hirelings jump about and
see that he gets it Oh, you'll have any
job you want."
The two passed through the railroad
gates and took their places in the lit little
tle little car. When they were under way
Runnels went on: "I am supposed to
show you this end of the work and tell
you what it all means. The ditch
will be about fifty miles long. and.
roughly speaking, the work is in three
parts the dredging and harbor build
ing at sea level on each end of the
canal, the lock work and the excava
tions on the upper levels. That dam
you saw building at Gatun will form
a lake about thirty miles long quite a
fishpond, eh? When a westbound ship
arrives, for instance. It will be raised
through the Gatun locks, three of them
and then sail along eighty-five feet
above the ocean, across the lake and
into a channel dug right through the
hills until it reaches the locks at
Pedro Miguel. Then it will be lowered
to a smaller lake five miles long, then
down again to the level of the Pacific.
An eastbound ship will reverse the
process. Get the idea?"
"Sure. It sounds easy."
"You will start in with the P. R. R..
Mr. Anthony, under my despotic sway."
"I know a little about railroading."
"So much the better. There's a big
railroad man by your name in the
states. Are you related?"
"I believe so.A Kirk answered, quiet
ly. "Go ahead with the lesson."
"The canal zone is a strip of land
ten miles wide running across the
isthmus really an American colony,
yon know, for we govern it. police it
and all that. As for the work itself,
well, the fellows at the two ends of
the canal are dredging night and day
to complete their part, the lock build builders
