FORMER PRESIDENT BIR
. MINGHAM CHAMBER OF
At First Appears to be the Most
Expensive But There Are Sev
eral Things to Consider.
"In computing the real cost of a
psvement. it Is of vital Importance
both to the city paving commission
and the property owners and citi
zens that the price bid be not consid
ered the sole criterion," said John W.
Sibley, secretary and treasurer of
the Southern Paving Brick Manufac
turers' association, who is a guest at
Hotel Chlquola and VtsltlQS Anderson
In the Interests of brick for the pro
posed contracta to be bid upon next
Tuesday. Mr. Sibley is a resident of
Birmingham, Ala., and was president
of th? chamber of commerce of that
city In 1912, and has been engaged In
the brick business for 25 years, both
In the-paving and building and face
brink branches of the industry. He
haa served as treasurer of the Na
tional Brick Manufacturers associa
tion for 20 years, so feels that he
can speak with some degree of au
thority on the brick situation.
He is not here to sell any goods
or to take any contracts, but the as
sociation h erepresents desires to
cooperate with the city authorities in
securing .the best types of material
for the splendid specifications pre
pared by City Engineer W. A. San- \
"The principal disadvantage that
brick labors uuder in a comparative
bidding with most other forms of pav
ing," said Mr. Sibley, "Is the seem
ingly higher first cost. Hut when a
careful analysis Is made of all the ele
ments that should be considered In
ascertaining the first cost, the excess
f, is more apparent than real. In the
S first place, the money to pay for this
work Is obtained upon bonds and cer
H Uneaten of long duration, with con
st ' sequent semi-annual Interest charges.
* If the pavement adopted ahould wear
out long before the maturity of the
obligations, It would bo manifestly
poor economy to select such a type,
simply to gratify the natural desire
to Spread the paving over the lurgest
"Anderson haB had a brick pave
ment under constant traffic for 12
, years, with practically no repairs
needed, except where tbo pavement
. had been torn up to make certain oth
er Improvements needed by the city,
and even with this abuse it has prov
ed a most durable and dependable
pavement No other fo;tn of paving
proposed for the new work can show
any record approximate gthis any
where. And it is evident that the
present brick street is good for many
"Now' If some other form of paving
would have to be resurfaced Inside
of five to ten years, as the exper
ience of other cities proves beyond
contradiction, then the sum of . R0
cents to $1.00 per square yard should
be added to the bids on other mater
ials in comparing the first cost with
"In tin matter of cleaning the
streets, the testimony of Cleveland,
Ohio, shows ' that it costs $500 less
per mile per annum to clean brick
than any other kind, or $5.ot)o per
mile in ten years. So that 20 cents
per square yard should be added to
the prices bid on other types of pav
ing. In comparison with brick.
."On account of'brick being the most
sanitary form of paving, it Is hard to
calculate the amount saved to the
community from that, standpoint, in
the next place a brley pavement orlg
tnate* no dual, wl *uh aside from
comfort and appearance, saves a vast
amount to merchants in the business
section and to Ihr? housewives In the

their construction will In the sum

May American Magazine: ,
"James R. Garfleld t of Cleveland,
son of the late President Garfleld,
told one of the editors of the Ameri
can Magazine the following story
about traveling in 1878 as a boy with
his father, who was campaigning. One
night, after a speech in Michigan,
young Garfleld said to his father:
'Why do you repeat so much? Do
you know that you said the same
things several times tonight? Do
you know that you said the same
things tonight that you said this af
ternoon in Detroit?' General Gar
field made this reply: 'You bappen
to be an especially interested party
and notice these repetitions. Others
do not. I repeat the same state
ments deliberately in order that peo
ple may finally get them. Anything
that I want an audience to get and
remember I repeat several times?In
somewhat different form perhaps.
This practice I have developed out of
my experience which baa shown me
that people's attention is distracted
in various ways and that a firat or a

More interest is now'manifested in
the military company than has been
the case for several years, and the
individual members are exerting them
selves to build up an efficient organi
zation. One of the principle draw
backs is a lack of funds with which
the company can make their armory
attractive. Should their candidate bo
successful in this contest, the motor
cycle will be sold at a fair valuation
and the proceeds used to purchase
much needed furniture, literature and
other accessories which will tend to
make the general reading room at
tractive to the members.
The maintalnance of this organiza
tion is dependent upon a very meager
state appropriation , and such aid as
the city renders in paving for armory
rest. Otherwise there is no source of
revenue. The friends of Sergeant
Bailey as well as those of each mem
ber of the company are rallying to
the cause and much interest Is mani
fested in the race.
