In the 1,052 miles of line between Port Augusta and Kalgoorlle there is not a single tunnel and very few outs, while at only a few places on^ the easterji section Is the ruling gra^e ot.one in eighty approached. The  330-mile straight occurs in the great limestone region of the Mullabor Plain which the line traverses for over five hundred miles. This is a desolate waste In which there are no hills, ho valleys, no rivers, no trees,/and' no water. When the line was-begun in 1912 the country along four-fltths of ttfe route had not a single inhabltaiit except a few wandering aboriginals, and- absolutely no permanent surface water. Indeed water has been the one,great difficulty ot the line. At a few. points reseiToirs have proved suco^ssful, but tor the most part the only supply available has been, drawn from wells and bores. This water contains, such a high, proportion of solid matter, and acids.that it is very unsuitable for locomotive use, rendering special devices necessary, V,'hlle in TJlaces. Itis'salt and condensers have bad to bo erected. At one period during construe-tibn water, for. all purposes had to.b,e carried over tliree hundred miles by train on the western section. The line gives the firijt communication by land between the two halves of Australia and opens up a duarter ..a million square miles ;now -ujioccupied.  In spite of the scanty rdinfalDaveraging well under ten inches a year, inuch of this country is well grE^Rsed . and "grows salt bush and o^ter. edible plants which would carry ..large, numbers of sheep tind cattle it prater can bo provided. The cost of: the line has boen about $40,000,000.-Scientific American.
