Editor The Ciiizkn: 1 note in your
edition of 2-Mh, instnnt, thnt yutt court
contributions on city iniprovemcnta,
I nm nn old city engineer, having hnd
n great deal of experience in the laying
out ol new cities, and improving badly
laid out old cities I have been in Aslic
ville only once, and then only lor u tew
hours, but during that short tiir-, I no.
ticed, that the streets required widening,
paving, etc. The sidewalks were alsu in
a dilapidated state. I have dotted down
a few notes (from memory) on city im
provements, which may be useful to some
of the city fathers of Aabeville.
The first thing to do, is to have a very
accurate map of the city prepared, show
ing boundary lines of avenuesund streets,
On the map of the city, all proposed al
terations ol avenues tud streets, (i. c. the
new widths and boundary lines) should
be murked; and all new struct m et should
lie built back to the new boundary lines.
The city council should pass a building
law, which should be rigorously carried
out by the city engineer. The chief points
in a building law are: (a) All new build
ings mutt be built on the street line laid
out by thecity engineer, (b) Curbing and
pavements must be built to the grades
established by tne city engineer, lej A
fire limit fixed, (d) All pinna, etc., ol new
structures must be approved bv the city
cnuineer before a building permit is
granted, (c) The building law should
contain a clause, making it compulsory
on property owners to set buck their
buildings to the new established building
lines, after the building luw hut been in
force a certain number ol years, gener
ally twenty years.
The chief items connected with a city,
come nnder tne loiiowtng ncutungs:
sewerage works, lighting the city
and street paving. I will any a lew
words about tliesc different works.
Street paving may appear to the unini
tiated, to be a very simple engineering
problem to solve. Permit me to say, that
the problem has not yet been satisfacto
rily solved. The tpiestion is, what shull
wc nave our streets with to obtain the
following, namely : lvasv on horse's feel
nuiseless and yet permanent. What ma
terials are thtre in the mnrket thnt will
lulfil the above speeihcn lions f I guess
there is scarcely a city on the face of the
earth, but whnt bus some patent paving

I have had considerable expenence
with almost every description of road
inuterinls in Europe, East and West In
dies, and the United States and I have
never vet seen any roads superior to the
road in liengul, Eust Indies. The
roads in East Indies are constructcu
in a very simple wuy. Broken
stone ( which will pnss through a two
inch diameter ring) is laid uu the road
in three inch layers. On top of this, some
good binding, material, murl, gravel, is
spread, then well watered and rolled
with a seven-ton steam roller. It isreullv
atirpiising what n good road this will
nuke. 'I he marl and broken stones,
when well watered and rolled, make o
regular concrete roud which Inst-t for a
long time. A tew months ago I held the
IKisition of engineer to the Kosctta Gravel
company in New Urlenns, La. Thitcom
pnny is putting down hundreds ol thou
sands ol dollurs worth of gravel streets,
and these gravel streets have surceded
thcnsphall paving. The gravel isoblaincd
rrom a mnuntuin some 180 miles lrom
New Orleans, and cost fl.SO per cubic
vara lor hauling over the Mississippi
Vulley railroad. The gravel contuins a
quantity of iron ore and marl, which
makes the gravel concrete when it is well
watered and rolled. The gravel ia put
on in three inch layers nnd the total
thickness is twelve inches. Underneath
the foot gravel is a one-inch Cyprus
plank. (The plunking isputdownowing
to tin? snudy stilr-soil. j The gravel paved
streets, likt all macadumiu-d roads, are
eusily repaired by nnv ordinary laborer,
and will stand heavy trnthc whereas
the asphalt paving requires expert la
borers to repair it and it is easily dam
aged and will not stand heavy traffic.

I should macadamiie with any stone
that was procurable from the quarries in
the neighborhood. My S)ecificntions
would he, the hardest stone procurable
to be used, broken to such a site that it
will pass through a two-inch diameter
ring ; to be laid in layers of three inches
Ion the streets); on each layer some
binding mnU-riul to be spread sufficient
to fill up ull the interstices, well watered
and rolled, The number of layers to be
put un each street would deiend upon
what kind ol bed the street had already.
The old style of putting material on mac
adumiicd ronds, ia to put the broken
atone nn by itself and let the wheels
of vehicles grind it to powder (the
stonea at tlie same time cutting the
hoofs of the animals which draw the ve
hicles) which, in windy weather, forms
dust clouds, and in wet weather henis
of mud. 1 do not say, don't put down a
brick or wooden pavement In the main
thoroughfnreof acity, where there ia such
viiluuuie proierty wnien will warrant
l lie heavy outlay, hut all the streets of a
city cannot be paved with bricks, wood
and other costly patent paving. Lastly,
I wish to say that the macadamised
streets will make good sub-road bed
for any costly pavement that may be
put down herein ter; I. e., what la done
now will not have to be undone be re-
Without iy doubt whatever, the very
beat paving for sidewalks is concrete.
Materials for concrete can be obtained
almost all over the world. Oyster shells,
sand and cement will make an excellent
concrete pavement. All the sidewalk
pavements in New Orleans are made of
oyster shells. For the sidewalks in Athe
villc 1 would recommend four parts
broken, stonea, three gravel, two sand
and 1 of concrete (bulk measure). The
stone, gravel and aand should be per
fectly clean. The broken stone, gravel
and sand should be mixed together in
the dry state (on a boarded floor);
then spread out, and the cement spread
on top, The whole then turned over twice
with shovels. While bring turned over
the third time, the mixture should be
watered lrom a watering ran. The mix
ture should then be turned over twice
again; this makes five limes altogether.
Tne mixture It now ready to he placed

TALMAGE AND HIS BANJO.
Why His Neighbors In Brooklyn Miss Him
When lis Takes His Vacation.
The Rev. Dr. Talninge is sadly missed
by his neighbors In Brooklyn In mor
ways than one. Bo If It is a ''pleaaani
thing to be missed" the popular preach
er probably has plenty of pleasure.
Everybody knows that the doctor Is
fond of luuiiio, but tliey are unaware
that lie can expertly piny (he banjo,
Yet it is true.
Before he departed on his vacation
he pretty regularly made the early
evenings melodious with the inel
low "plnk-a-punk, pniik-u-punk, pank
paiik-pank. tliruiu-ui-m" of his favorite
miiHlcnl Instrument as lie sat In the
bask parlor of his residence on South
Oxford street. The windows wer
usually open, and the touching strnin
of some old time melody Moated oil1
upon the air.
When lie began strollers In the ad
janent park pausod to listen, and pen
pie in nearby houses ciimu to thol
windows in order that they should not
miss a single note. Such sweetly tune
fill airs as "Annie Ijiurle," "Couibi
Through the Rye",imi "Away Down
Upon the Suwaneo Ribber" were fa
vorites with lihu, and when he played
them his eager auditors always felt like
joining in the refrain. . Hut now tin
house is silent and the banjo laid away
No wonder he is nibsed.
During bis absence a young miui
with a cornet, who lives on the same
street, has seemingly tried to fill the
vacancy. He i not on expert, und the
way he ean murder miiMiti would be
amusing If it was not ho awful. Evert
blast lie gives with his cornet sounds
like the wail of a lost soul or a elaiu
peddler In tlistress. Still he haa been
persistent Even during the hot, humid
nights of the present month he has
clung to his post ut an oien window
and kept up a steady, ear rasping blare.
People in the vicinity closed their
windows with a vicious bitngl" but
still he, kept up the fusihtde of unit Hat
oil and discordant notes. There seemed
to be no relief from the Infliction until
a happy Idea struck a man uurovs the
street. He opened a window, and with
an energy born only of despuir bawled

The comet player did not at flint
seem to understand the meaning of the
