the Mt. St. Ellas Alps, or the Pacific, to
the Artie ocean, a distance of approxi-
ately 600 miles.
The United States surveying party
consisted of from 60 to 80 ment each seas-
on since the work was undertaken. Chief
Engineer Riggs, himself a young col-
lege man. selected his aids from the
hardiest classes—cowboys, forest rang-
ers, prospectors, timber cruisers and
frontiersmen, with a "beral aprinktng
of engineers. New expeditions were
organized each spring, although many
of the men who started nt the beginning
have remained in the service up to the
present time. It was the custom, too. to
leave a few men In the north each win-
ter to care for equipment and supplies.

or seven years of efforta, a 20-foot vista
cut, like a gigantic avenue, or lane,

together with monuments set at inter-
vlslble polr.ts, from three to four miles
The monuments erected are of two
types, depending upon the importance
of the locality. At prominent atream
crossings t^nd main points of travel the
line-marker consists of a I-foot alumin-
um bronxe shaft, weighing 300 pounda,
set In 3,000 pounds of concrete. At less
Important points the monument Is
smaller, being designated as a cone,
cast of the same metal, and requiring
only 1.E00 pounda of concrete for the
base. There are approximately 200 of
these monuments along the 600 miles
of boundary. The work of conveying
the heavy materials for their construc-
tion, mostly on pack animals, sometimes
on the shoulders of the men themselves,
was very slow and laborous.
This survey la declared by englneera
to be th4 stralghtest of the world for
the length encompassed. In speaking of
It, one of the engineers said;
"The start was made from one of the

•BETWEFN SAVAGE AND TIGER"
A* Thrilling Story of Adventure In India
In Which Love Plays an
All jungle and animal pictures in the
past have been limited to th,p visualiz-
ation of wild animal life in its native
quarter, showing their destruction or
capture by hunters. George Kleine's
photo drama "BETWEEN SAVAGE
AND TIGER," however, goes a step
further. It not only £l.ow the ani-
mals and terrors of the Jungle, but also
relates an absorbing story of love and
heroism that enlists the Interest in the
beginning nnd holds It fast until
very last picture fades upon the screen.
The jungle episodes, whiltf thrilling
enough to satisfy the most exacting de-
mands for thrills and excitement, are
subsidiary to the love interests. Herein

India, where the other actors are man-

Kleine's biggest money makers because
its appeal has no bounds. It will be
