' A SANITA RY VIEW.
The Materials for Street Paving
A Medical Authori ty Dlaeasses the
Varleua MatrrialH red ana Assert
that Cedar Block are Not Injurious
t Health Nnmetlilng ofluterrct.
'Just at this present time when street
paving in Rock Islao 1 in the near future
is a certainty, and wlen the different ma
terials used for such purposes are con
sidered with more or less favor, anything
pertaining to the same will be read with
interest. Like -the ether materisls used
cedar blocks has its friends and its ene
mies in Rock Island, but the chief argu
ment in objection se :ms to have deriva
tion from a sanitary standpoint. In view
of such facts, an ex ended reference to
the subject in volume 18 of the Encyclo
pedia of the Practice of Medicino, by
Ziemssen, will be of interest and value.
Says the article:
At the present day, street pavements
are included among the more important
sanitary works, aDd properly so, since it
is an essential condition of public health,
that all town roadways, of whatever de
scription, should be well drained, non
retentive of filth, and as noiseless as pos
sible. A thoroughly well paved
town, other things being equal,
must of necessity, have a lower
death rate than one with the op
posite condition of its streets and
alleys. Evidence cottld be cited confor
mitory to this statement. In the con
struction of street pavements, ' it is of
primary importance that every sanitary
advantage should be secured- Until re
cently this phase of the subject has been
pretty generally igno ed. The question
of the kind of pavement best adapted for
ordinary traffic and Iwst suited to meet
the requirements of public hygiene, is
not so easily determined. The principal
kinds at present in use. at e the cobble
atone, the macadamized, the granite
block, the wood and the asphalt pave
ment. The two la9t are proba
bly preferable, from a sanitary
standpoint. The cobble stone pave
ment has been much used in
the United States, the stones being
easily procurable Iron the gravel of the
diluvium, or along tha seashore on river
beaches, have been g?nerally resorted to
as an economical ai d durable material
for covering street furfaces. If stones
of the harder varicy, and of nearly
equal size am selected, and if they are
closolj set and well lt.id upon a good bed
of gravel and sand, taey make a cheap
and substantial pavement, which affords
a secure footing to horses and has the
advantage of being easily repaired. But
there are serious objections to this kind
of pavement from a sanitary point of
view. The most prominent of these
arises from the fact tbat it is the most
difficult pavement to keep clean. Fiom
the shape of the ston js it is impossible
to fit them to each other so as to form
a perfectly smoo.h surface, and,
therefore, the spaces left between them,
at first covered up with clean gravel, soon
become filled with filt 1, which it is found
permeates the underlying earth, so that in
time the bed of the sfeet becomes satu
rated with impurities in the most concen
trated form. Everyone is, perhaps, fa
miliar with the very offensive black earth
uncovered by the removal of an old and
worn out curbstone puvement. The
i ffuvia arising from the surface of this
filth-laden soil exerts a baneful influence
upon the health of tl ose who are com
pelled to breathe aa atmosphere thus
vitiated with impurities. Particularly is
this the case in narrow, crowded streets.
where the evil is inter sifted by the want
of proper ventilation.
Another objection to this kind of pave
ment and in fact to most stone pave-
ments is the noise craated by the rat
tling of vehicles over the rough surface.
To persons in sound 1 ealth and of strong
constitution, it may bi a matter of tri
vial concern; tbey become accustomed to
it and apparently in no wise suffer from
its effects. But to persons of a delicate,
nervous temperament and to the sick,
this nuisance is particularly distressing.
Granite b ock pavements are
open to the objection tbat their inter
stices collect filth which it is impossible
to remove, even by tbe best managed
plan of cleansing. The cnbical stone
blocks are displaced under tbe prodigious
traffic, tbe corners and edges are worn
away, tbe surface getf to be irregular,
the joints are widened. Tbe filth of the
streets gathers in rutf and joints, is re
cruited by new access ons of animal de
posits, diluted by ra n it ferments and
forms a putrescent organic mire, becom
ing,' in course of time, a source of nox
ious miasmas. In bet and dry weather
these nauseating deposits pass into the
atmosphere in tbe form of unhealthy va
pors, or pulverized snd drifted by the
wind, cause inconvenience and poison our
lungs. Indeed, in repairing old pave
ments, a black layer ni ground, saturated
with sulphuretted hydrogen, is found be
low the stone blocks, and hears witness
to the infection of t lie subsoil by the
soakage of contaminated water. Prof.
Tyndall has established by experiments
that a large proportion of the particles
of dust in tbe rooms of London houses is
of organic origin, and other experiments
have demonstrated thtt horse manure, in
a state of decomposition, is a permanent
The wooden pavement has been
brought forward within recent years as a
substitute for cobble stones and granite
blocks. It is claimed for it that it meets
the objections encountered in stone pave
ments. It has been extensively used in
tbe United States, and at one time stood
in good repute, but it has been generally
abandoned, tbe main reason for its dis
use being on account of its tendency to
decay. In England there has been a
sharp contest belweec various kinds of
pavements, particularly those made of
granite, asphalt and wood, which has
been decided after a prolonged compara
tive trial, in favor of tbe last, and the
cerporation of London has confirmed tbe
decision and recommended the adoption
of tbia style of pavement for the thor
oughfares of that great city.
If tbe proper kind and quality of. wood
be selected, and the blocks and founda
tion boards be thoroughly kyandized
and boiled in asphalt until the material
becomes completely saturated, and. if
a solid and imperviojs foundation of
concrete be first laid, tbia pavement will
undoubtedly be rende-ed very durable.
This quality, in add.tion to those of
smoothness of surface noiselcssness, and
impermeability to moisture, will supply
the essential condition of a pavement
considered satisfactory from a sanitary
The asphalt pavement, when properly
made, ia .probably the very best pave
ment that baa ever been devised. It is
smooth, noiseless, t dvantageous for
taction, thoroughly ia pervious to moist
ure and is very durablo. It prevents the
oakage of filth into t be subsoil; it has
no cracks or crevicea to harbor Impuri
ties, nor uuevenness o'. surface to retain
wa3te matter and reta d drainage. It is
easily washed, and tb s is an important
advantage for a paven ent in alleys and
courts where the app ication of hose is
of ten required. It is elastic in summer
without being soft, and bard in winter
without being brittle. The as
phaltum pavement is clean, and fit for
traffic in a few hours after being
laid, while new or repaired stone road
ways must be covered for months with
heavy layers of sand, to be drifted by the
breeze in dry weather and added to the
mud in rainy spells. Repairs can be
made to the asphaltum pavement in dry
of a cold winter, while with stone pave
ments the defects must be endured until
spring. Tbe kind of pavement here al
luded to is made of the mineral asphal
tum, a porous limestone found in the
Val de Trovers, Switzerland, and known
as the Seyssel or Neufcbatel asphaltic
rock. It is a vety different thing from
the alphalt concrete which is made by
mixing bitumen with sand, cinders, coarse
gravel or broken atones. A great many
kinds of patent concretes pavements have
been used in the United States, and at
most of them were worthless, the reputa
tion of the genuine asphalt pavement has
Buffered in consequence.
A few years ago Dr. Homer O. Hitch
cock, member of the state board of health,
of Michigan, published a pamphlet con
cerning the relation of wooden pave
ments and wooden sidewalks to the pub
lic health and in the preparation of which
tbe author addressed a circular to the
large towns and cities of the state in
which he asked seven questions. They
1. In yonr city or village is wood,
either with or without asphaltum, used
for paving of the streets? To this
twelve answered "yes."
2. Has more or less sickness been no
ticed among people living on streets so
paved than among those living on streets
otherwise, or not at all paved T Twelve
3 What classes of disease have more
prevailed along streets so payed? No
4. Do the streets in your city or vil
lage generally have wood sidewalks?
Fifty answered "yes."
5. Have there been cases of sickness
fairly attributable to the decaying wood
sidewalks as their causi? Fifty an-
swered "no "
6. In jour city or village are any
streets ''made, filled or covered with re
fuse lumber or sawdust? Ten answered
7. Have cases of sickness been noticed
been noticed fairly to be attributed to
such decaying wood? Ten answered
"no;" two answered "yes."
In tbe conclusion of his report. Dr.
From all these replies It will be seen
that no well authenticated facts have
been observed respecting the casual re
lation of decaying wood in the surface of
tbe ground, and any of tbe zyroaic
diseases. I have no doubt hut tbat cases
of such diseases have occurred in tbe
practice of many physicians of long ex
perience and observations, justly and
naturally attributable to decaying wood
in damp, unventilated collars. Tbe im
pression is very general, too, that tbe
same process of decay of wood, or other
vegetable material in the open air gives
origin to the same noxious gases, and
may cause tbe same similar diseases.
Tbe very obvious reason that we do not
readily trace cases of sickness which
causes disease is tbat the gases from de
composition are not confined and con
centrated, but are either at once ab
sorbed by the utmost efficient dis
infectant, tbe earth, or are diffused in
the air. Sidewalks should be kept In
good repair, and as soon as decay has
fairly begun tbey should be renewed.
4uite a clever Catch.
City Marshal Kitlilsen of Moline has
distinguished himself by quite a clever
catch. A few weeks ago the police of
the three cities were notified to look ou
for a thief with goods stolen In Indiana
from cars of the New York, Chicago &
St. Louis railway, better known as tbe
Nickel Plate line. Between $7,000 and
f 8,000 worth of goods had been stolen
from cars of the company within the
past few months, at points in northwest
ern Indiana, notably at and near Knox,
Stark county. Three or four of tbe
thieves were recently arrested there, but
one was supposed to have come in this
direction with goods. The Divpatch of
Saturday evening says:
Tbe man arrived on Wednesday of last
week. He was a young man, a house
painter, about twenty-five years of age,
and brought with him an interesting
wife. He gave his name as Anthony
Kring, and tbey went to liye with his
uncle, John F. Lohmeier. Later their
household goods came. But Kring was
not yet satisfied. He frequently in
quired at tbe freight depot for still more
household goods which he said he ex
pected. Marshal Kittilsen now begun to
have a lively interest in him, and kept a
close watch on him, also on the freight
depot for the goods. The "goods' ar
rived Friday night, and Saturday morn
ing Kring hired an express wagon to
cart them for him. Kring went to tbe
depot with tha expressman, and there
the Marshal arrested him, and bad the
expressman deliver the goods at the
police station. The packages boxes
and barrels, were opened, and
were found to contain about
$300 or f 400 worth of dry goods, carpets,
rugs, boots, shoes and slippers. There
were as much as 200 pairs of footwear,
and some of the other goods were quite
valuable. Marshal Kittilsen immediately
telegraphed to Louis Williams, general
superintendent of the Nickel Plate at
Cleveland, Ohio, also to an officer of tbe
road at Chicage. He locked his man up
in the calaboose.and will keep him till an
officer arrives from Chicago to take him
in charge. Kring says he was enticed in
to the thieving business, and was not as
guilty as the others. Tbe robberies have
been committed mostly at ceal chutes, or
when the trains have stopped for water.or
when ascending grades. Tbe cars have
been broken open, the goods thrown out
upon the ground, and then hauled off into
the country and hidden, to be disposed of
at the leisure of the thieves.
