If Graham bad been properly
coached in the first inning ytsterday
Memphis would have mai'e an earned
run and smashed the g -ose rgg that
was pwsanted to ber. Graham, who
waa the first of tbe local baiters t-i face
Shaffer, sent the ball to left debitor
two bays, and MeSjrley f llovreJ wi b
a B ngle. Graham made third easily
on McSorley's bit, but ioiprnJouily
tried to coiro home oa it aud wna
fairly caught cut at tbe p'ate. There
waa no excaso for such raahntsa as
thero waa no one cut aud Granain
could easily have eerie ia on a tauri
nes. Tbe strongest battms in the nine
followed McSorley, and Graham might
safely have r el ltd up-in them .ti
pat the ball somewhere that
would enab'.o him to reach
bome saijly. As it ws, the II y
to Pureed by Andrews, and Broug'i
ton's fafe bit tt right tield availed the
tome tt am nothing, when by proper
ccaching (hey wore certain lo scoie at
least one run. At bet-t, however, tha
home nine was not in condition to
win yebtarday. Sneed was tick, and
his place in right field was occupied
by a brother of Bob Black's, who
made a ccstly errrr. Black himsolf
was not ia the best of form, as he wta
hit for eigbt singles and two doubles,
enough to give Atlanta the game.
The run getting was coutiued to tho
second and fourth innings, la te
former btrk'.kbr 'ruado a double, ad
vanced ti third on a passed ball, and
bcored on George 8hatl'er'd gtoundur
to eft ii-)ld.
In the fourth inning Lyons hit safe
ly to center Held and exomi oq r-trick-er's
double. Suali'er retirtd on a lly
to Manning. Strieker was naught at
tempting to btnal third. Mapnea gut
to first base on called balls. )V imams
hit to right field for two brsB. and
both he und Mappes scored on right
hei.ier wild throw lo tniru.

pened to pass the corner of Union and
Third streets.
"And the most expensive," waa the
rvply.
"Yes, it comes blub, bnt we must

With tbe heavy traffic the city does

ond tttoet was well laid, tut it begins
to look already as if it would not lat

which is piled up or hollowed out by
the paver to suit the s'zoof eich ptr
t'cular block as ha adjusts the top Mir
fate to the grade of the (treat. They
are not all of the lame depth, conse
quently the rami foundation is not the
tame nnder each block, and the result
ia that it give way in planes, and tho
cmtonr once broken gnat holes
wear in it Now here, you
see, we are laying a solid
foundation oi concrete. It will b
perfectly smooth and in strict kemng
with the contour of the s reet. Upon
this we will lay those granite blocks
you ee piled over there. They nre
all of uniform sine, about ciuht inches
long live inches wide aud of the same
depth. They are kid upon the con
crete and after the interjlicfs buve
been tl.led with coarse giavcl, pi cb
will bo poured in bo as t h.ild each
block firmly in its place. We are nut
going to pave the whole attest iu lluit
way, you understand, but simply this
btiio place, abont 150 feet, up to the

''What do yon figure tbe cort?'1
Tho concrete foundation will cojt
