Kaussy started at this end of the lln«
on his Investigating trip. He did not
gel sny further than the nine-mile
post, however, ns his lever tar could
not gti beyond that point. To get even
that far was a great deal of trouble,
as It was necessary to get over the
washouts encountered as best they
might, while s way had to be cut or
cleared more than once ghrough debris
that had been swept across the track
by the tide.
Since he bad taken the trip of the
day before. Superiuwndcut Saussy
knew what the condition of the road
this side of the nlnt-mile post was. A
car was waiting for him, according to
his Instructions, at that point, and on
his arrival there he boarded It and
came back to the city. He had been
on « pretty rough trip, having mart*
his way from theroadbed out to the
washed-away track at several places.
He got together data that will enable
the engineering department to form a
correct, estimate of what, repairs will
be needed. Hands will be started at
work at once in making these.
From the nin«-mile post in to tho
one-mile post the track is free from
any "big washouts. There are a num
ber of small ones that can be fixed
without great delay. At the one-mile
post there is rather a troublesome

deed In the yards there are several
bad places, one of them being as much
as 150 feet long. Both the main track
and siding are washed out, and the
track was taken from the sld'.ng and
placed by the receding tide on top or
the main track. This place and Oth
ers will have to lie “cribbed up" to ad
mit the passage of cars until sand can
lie procured to fill them In.,
When the lever car made its way
down day before yesterday, two or
three big logs had to be cut out of the
way. These Jogs had floated up from
the quarantine elation, where they had

JOAQUIN MILLER S TOMB
The Latest Work of the Poet of the
San Francisco, Oct. 5. —Joaquin
Miller, the Puet of tho Sierras, has
I done many things to mark him as a
I man of rare eccentricity, and as a l:u'
I crowning act of bla strange career he
: has perfected all arrangements for bis
•own funeral and tho Incineration of his
mortal remains when bis soul shall
have escaped U> the great beyond.

the hills back of Frultval*. Alameda
coun.y. so a solid mass of masonry,
covering * space ten feet squme and
I standing eight feet high. It Is cotn-
I posed of 620 huge gravilte boulders set
j in cement and calculated to endure for
j centuries. The queer structure In op
| progched by three Immense steps laid
across the entire west frontage, and of
1 sufficient height to permit the bearers
to place the body on top of the heap.
The upper surface is hollowed out -o
a depth of two feet In the shape of n
; coffin. Six feet to the north of the ma
sour tomb lies a great brown boulder
v.eiglrtig probably two tons. The sur
face has been smoothed off. and upon
its f.vce In large white letters bar. necu
carefully printed this Inscription.
"TO THE UNKNOWN.”
This Is the only epitaph tbit wl’l
will grace the spot.
Miller when asked about the tomb
“ft is my Idea of the way in which
f wish to lie disposed of. Whi n !lf<3
is ever I shall be cremated here in
the surroundings which I love. I want
no burial. I own these eighteen lui.n
dred acres and why should I be burled
out of them. There on that eminence,
I shu I abide forever and sha'i make
no p: c.eneo at. keeping my name and
story where it. can always be seen. In
fact nothing will be writen there but
the words, 'To The Unknown.”'
The tomb has been »o constructed
that a draft wilt fan the flame< and
the, ashes of the poet will ming!■* with
the ashes of the fagots and he scatter
