Slacked aloiijj Third street aro thousands
of granite blocks for paving purposes.
Mora tbau half thu uumbor required to
complete tlio pttvemont of ttint thorough
furo aro already tlicre, 10 cullod iu to make
tlieiu absolutely correct and tHirfoclly
adopted to tlio bent cliws of work.
After centuries of cicrimeiitiii not
nltojjtothor in tills country the scientific
uihxl souiin to liavo settled upon the con
viction that no pavement 0441111 Is that of
granite blocks, when projKirly laid. To be
wire, it requires a foundation with the few
est possible dotocU, an Ingredient that ndds
materially to tlio cost. It niny also bo ro
marked that tlio pavemeut costs more
than any other, but como into fuvor on
tlio motto, "Tlio Lost Is always clioapont."
In Memphis there will havo to be paid
out about $110 for every square yard of
tlio pavement laid, ns against prices rang
ing from $ 1.50 to $.1.50 for other kiuds of
pavements. At Ixiuisville, where the
granite has recently como into opular os
ti'ctn, the coat is ft. 50 per square yanl,
and that fact does not deter the authorities
from going rilit ahead with wholesale
contractu lor iU Other cities aro pursuing
a similar course under similar exin'iise.
It Isn't every grado of granite that la
Kultnble for paving purposes. lOven tlio
first quality will not do. Urumto is in

color. lirsnlte, therefore, fa loiiud in
w hilo, gray and ml. That at Knoblick is
gray, with a decided Rieenisli bfock tinga,
indicating the decided presenee of horn
blendo. That found at (iraiiiteviilo is of
reddish hue, indicating the silence of
hornblendo. The formation of granito is
that of minute grains, from which it takes
its name, and the geologists says that its
component parts must havo consolidated at
touiM'ruture of red heat, and under very
great pressure. The iuijact accounts for
its great strength. In some tests
made in rVollmid to ascertain the
power of resistance of granite it required a
weight of 115. 4 til pounds to crush a one
half Inch cube, r'ourtevn cubic feel of
grsnito will wriuh a tou. Tho folly of at
tacking such a solid muss w ith implements
of wciijht and strength will apar at a

Tlio process of cutting srunito blin ks

work of splitting up the big block ia gen

l-i uii. ajio surs oi cuuing paving

mon stono-mason s ax tho cutter marks on
two sides of ilia block tho paving stono,
gives it a fuw sharp taps, and tlio paving
block splits of! neatly und clean m a pino
board. There Is a rare art in tho work,
howovor, as tho visitor, seeing how easy it
is dono, finds out when ho undertakes to
cut ono. An amateur who goes to work
on a paving block with ill-directed forco
will soon Und that it Brows round under
his miniatrutions. A goxxl hlock-miikcr,
with an aosiHtant to do his drilling,
can cut 150 blocks a day,
which will leavo hi in good wagea.
Tlio polishing of grnnito blocks Is a to
il Ions and ingenious process, it is dono
entirely by machinery invented for the
purpose. Small globules of chilled iron
aro lirst lued, followed by cmory of diller
grades, and, llnnlly, with the softest und
most impalpable putty powder. It re
quires all of twenty-lour hours' steady
work to polish a surface 3x3 foot. Tho
grunito columns which are so ornamental
in modern structures are polished in
lathes, and with tho same materials.
Within tlio limits of tho (irnniteyillo
Company's possessions is the most roinark
ulilo formation of aiunt bowlders to be
found on this continent They are several
in number, and will rango in weight from
50,000 to '.'00,000 pounds. As is tho caao
in a wagon load of potatoes, tbn largest
ones aro on tho top. Surmounting tho
iiic turcsque heap is a monster known as
''The KlcphanL" Vloweil from ditlurent
points, thero is a strange likeness to tho
f;iant pachyderm. One view from tho top,
ookiug west, siiKi;ests an entire herd of
mastodons on a stamK'lo. A mail feels
his littleness when walking in tho
shadows of these unknown giants of an
unkii iwu axu. Scicntitic writers advunco
various theories as to tho phenomenon.
Homo hold that tho placo was once the
center of a vast maelstrom and that the
great stones wero rolling in tho seething
caldron (or Kites, until they took ou their
spherical ali0cs, Othors hold that they
wero thrown up by a volcanic upheaval.
Hut they know nothing more about it than
do tho most profound geologists as to what
iterlod of the earth's history granite iusilf
belong, for it is found iu every stratum,
and a very corsair in the earth's crust.
These giutit bowlders aro all distinct in
shape, and form dark caves und wiuding
dclilcs. This was one of tho favorite hid
ing places of the notorious guerrilla, Hum
llildehrand. A tittle band of determined
men, well armed, could keep thousands si
bay from this fastness. Iu the summer
time summer boarders come hero from Ar
cadia and hire idlo stone cutters to cut
their names iikiii the (ares of th rocks
that have looked down Uon egos.

Isn't it apparent by this time that

well expressed on its face, for there is
nothing omit toil from its contents thnt
would be likely to receive attention from
the man or sot of men prospecting In their
mind for a location. These fohlurs are
being freely cin-ulated by all the railroad

ArriAL has moro than once called atten

the 60,0O3 J'rire, and several other ticket
holders drew smaller pritea, all in the
same month's drawing. It is frequently
said that sudden windfalls or money
drawn in lotteries nover benefit tho recip
ients. Wo know not bow this old adage
