t-tle Better Thuu "Two Streaks of Ir< q ;specl.il Curre.^i'nrdfuct'.' Wilmamsi'OUT, Sept. fl.-UoiiPidorab e space baa already been devoted to a d eoription of tbe "deep cut" on tbe Philadelphia and Erio Railroad at Jersey Shoie Station, or Antes Fort, bui in order to complete its history, and tbe history < f some of the men connected with it, it is necessary to spoak of tho great culvoit through wbioh Antes Creek passes. The "fill" work of tbe out is an enormous one and absorbed the 3(30,000 cubic yards of earth removed by the excavation. Antes Creek, a Ktreara of considerable volume* drains Nippenoae Valley and reaches thg river through a deep gorge in Bald Eagl)1 mountain, passing under the railroad oi its way out. And in order ro �ive it. eu1- j ficieut vein, a lar^o ^ulvoii had to b.i con - \ stnaoted. After the raiiroari bad been iu ftpera:io i for several years it was discovered that f h j culvert was not long enough, and came necessary to extend tlic arch ou both enda. David Stuempile, a well known stone mason oi this city, did tho work. He added tUteen feet on tho lower side ;md ten on the upper, with wiags thir'y feet in length. This was in 1304, thirteen years after the cut had been made. Mr. Stuempfle came from Wittenberg in Inj" and settled in Williamsport. And from 1807 to 1867 he was engaged in buildipg culverts and reservoirs (or the railroad company. He constructed tbe reservoirs at Waisoutowu, Sustinyhaiiua, Fcrn:y, and Crowttiit, on tlio riinJieinahtMjiiii''. Theso reservoirs are forty-fo'ir ( ^.r of the most losi-rcl.e'l citi.'-Mi.-i of port, and always takes pride in aiding to advance the material interests of the city of his adoption, and he has contributed bis full share towards that obj-cct. Through industry and hard labor he has carved his way to tbe front, and to-day be is recognized as a representative man and solid citizen. Through bis example, from an bumble bogiumng.he has diguified labor and done much to elevate those whu have been in bis omploy.

It was either instant death or slight injury. There were about 200 pounds of giant powder in the blast.

It is customary to prepare blasts and charge them at tbe hours of twelve iu the noon and six o'clock, after the mcu have left work and goue to places of safety, to shoot them. In this case, however, it seems that one blast had been prepared, and Foreman C.McPbevson was preparing the second. The men had all finished their work and were putting on their coats ready to go to their homes when they met a horrible and unexpected death. blows to atoms. Either tho rock was too hot from the action of the drills or else the timpiug exploded the second blast, and that exploded the first. A man who was tamping paid tho penalty with his life.
