**Work Resumed At The Depot**
The work of driving piles for the foundation
for a turn table in the railroad yards in this town [Newton]
was resumed on Friday last. On Thursday the construction engineer
came to Newton and staked out the ground where the piles are to be
driven., and Friday morning the pileing machine was set to work. The
piles measure about 30 feet in length, and after being stood on end,
the ponderous weight is set in motion and the piles are driven into
the ground within about two feet of the length of the pile. The time
occupied in driving a pile varies from two to two and a half hours,
according to the condition of the earth, and of the eight piles driven
on Friday and Saturday, two came in contact with rocks and had to
be left standing some ten feet above the surface. These we are informed,
are sawed off at the required height when the pile driving is completed
and the work of leveling is commenced. There were on the ground Saturday
thirty piles and it was stated that about sixty more were on the way,
making a total of ninety piles to be driven before the work of commencing
the concrete foundation. The entire yard is to be leveled with the
base of the water tank.
