Pavers Tested by Government
Experts and Found to Be
Now For One of Those Old Fashioned Rousing Brass Bed Sales
The laying of brick In the pontofflce
driveway will commence Monday.
This morning Postmaster H. A. J. Mc
Donald received from Washington a
sample of the paring brick submitted
to the government experts by Con
tractor Gus Fisher. The brick had
been submitted to the severe test re
quired by the government and had
proved acceptable A quantity of the
brick is already on the ground at the
postoffice and nothing stands in the
way of an immediate start.
The crushed rock road laid when
the postofflce was remodeled will have
to be removed as a preliminary step.
Then six Inches of concrete will be
laid and the big pavers will be laid
on top of that with a cement filler.
