8. A. D. Balcombe, chairman of the
- board of public works at Omaha, baa
writen to exhaustive article to the
World of that city on tbe project of brick
paying, and tbe Burlington Hmtktye and
other leading papers, in cities contem
plating paring, have given tbe article
publicity. In bis communication Mr.
Balcombe says :
For a few years past past a few cities
of tbe smallest class and two or three of
tbe larger hive been experimenting with
brick pavements in this country. Tbe
first on record, I think, was Charleston,
W, Vs. About fifteen years ago thirty
feet square was laid, and recently about
two miles have been placed.
The specifications were: Six inches of
sand, then one-inch oak plank dipped in
hot coal tar, then two inches of sand,
and finally Hale's patent dry dressed,
bard burned, ordinary sized brick,
placed on edge, laid "herring bone"
It is claimed that tbe clay out of which
tbsse brick are made, is peculiar in this,
that all its ingredients are finely com
minuted; its grains wf silica, two-thirds
of its mass, when separated, appear as a
fine, soft, white powder, and its compo
sition is as follows: Silica, 68.80, iron
serquod6 10.53, lime 1 .87, magnesia 0.42,
moisture 2 08. combined water 5.16, un
determined 0.57 total 100. A brick
8.00 inches wide, 7 42 inches long end
2.18 thick, stands a mechanical test ot
111 200 pounds compression. Accords
log to tbe contractors table, showing tbe
quantity of materials for one mile of this
pavement 40 feet in width or 28.469
square yards, it takes 1,642.599 (8x4x2)
8.911. cubic yards or sand, 211,200
feet of lumber and 855 barre's of
Also about fifteen years ago Blooming
ton, 111., laidja sample block and more
recently several miles. Tbe specifica
tions were: First, three inches of sand,
then a course of ordinary sidewalk brief
upon their flat surface, then one inch of
sand, then a course of tbe best vitrified
paving brick laid edgewise.
Wheeling, W. Va , has placed three or
four miles of the New Cumberland vitri
fied fine clay pavement specifications:
First, eight inches of gravel, then brick
on edge. A few other of tbe qmttll cities
bare experimented wiilmbene pavements.
But it must be remembered that in all of
these small cities the traffic on them is
comparatively very small and light, tbe
tonnage Uiey have borne very small, and
their streets have not been cleaned only
semi-occasionaliy by a street commis
sioner, and the dirt has protected the
brick from abraiaon. An Inch or two of
dirt or mud on any pavement, except
wood or asphaltum. will lengthen its life
very much, indeed.
Within two years past, two of our
largest cities have experimented with
brick, viz: Alleghany and Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania. Allegheny specifications,
first ten inches of gravel, then fine clay
brick laid flat, tben one half of an inch
of sand, then brick edgewise, then all
joints filled with a mixture of sand, coal
tar and asphaltum to secure a substantial
bond, then one-balf an inch of sand on
" In neither of these cities has the
material been in use long enough to give
it practical test, as it ban only been used
on unfrequented streets. J
Last year . Saxton, of Kansas City,
advertised that he was prepared to pave
with one course of Galesburg brick on a
foundation of six inches of concrete.such
as we place under wood block, with a
bond maintenance for five years, pries
not to exceed $2 2 ) per square yard.
If tbe brick experiment is to be tried in
this city tbe latter method is undoubtedly
tbe best of all. Experienced engineers,
experts and authors in this and foreign
conotries all agree that a firm foundation
should be placed under all surface pa vine
material. A poor pavement on a good
foundation miy be better than a good
pavement on a poor foundation. Gen.
O. A. Oilnaore, the highest authority on
this subject in this country, says, in bis
work orr roads, streets and pavements,
"that a firm and unyielding foundation is
quite as necessary for the stability and
endurance of a pavement, as for any
other structure. The best wearing sur
face ever devised, combining excellence
of material and workmanship in abe
highest degree would soon give way and
become worthless under, tbe wear and
tear of a very moderate traffic if placed
upon a weak and insufficient founds
tion." Bis work was published In 1883.
and he also says that "it is claimed that
bricks saturated with liquid hydro car
bon will sustain great weight without
crushing and will resist abrasion and
wear, when subjected to ordinary street
traffic; but no satisfactory evidence on
these points, based upon their practical
use, has been obtained . Tbe durability
of Mb pavement has yet to be proved.
Captain Eugene Griffen, Lnited States
engineer, says in bis report to tbe com
missioners of the District of Columbia,
June 80, 1887: "The record of brick
pavements is an irregular one. In West
Virginia, in Stuebenville, Ohio, in
Bloomlngton and Jacksonville, Illinois,
in St. Louis and other places satisfactory
pavements have been made. In other
cities and on second trials failures have
resulted. It has been shown by actual
test that it is possible to make a durable
pavement of fire brick. It has also been
conclusively shown that it is a very diffi
cult task to achieve.acd that great trouble
consists in tbe impracticability of produ
cing bricks of uniform quality. The great
success of the first St. Louis test led to a
careful investigation by a citizens' com
mittee. Bricks made of the same clay aa
before, burned in the same kiln, by the
same workmen, and apparently in the
same manner, were in effect worthless for
paving purposes. Tbe committee re
luctantly reported that the problem of a
cheap, durable and satisfactory pavement
had not yet been solved. A bid submit
ted In April last, for laying brick pave
ments at 91.8? per square yard 11 cents
per yard cheaper than the distillatebut
the saving of 11 cents per yard was not
deemed a sufficient inducement to war
rant tbe contracting for such pavements,
In tbe absence of any test of their dura
bility on tbe streets of this city.
In 1886,. Topeka, Kansas, sent five emi
nent citizens to various cities to investi
gate the pavement question, and upon
their return they reported as follows as
to brick: "'Tbe nse of firm, elastic brick,
sometimes spoken of as lire brick, for
pavements, is no new thing, as many
have supposed, they having been used to
some extent in Holland, a country noted
for its high grades of brick, for light
t riffle, and under favorable conditions,
for the past two hundred years. We
have obtained some evidence that cer
tain varieties of brick have been used
with a measure of success in Steuben
ville, Ohio, and in Bloomlngton and
Jacksonville, Illinois. In other
eastern cities brick pavements have
proved a failure. ' They have not been
adopted to any considerable extent in the
eaat and we bave found no place where
they have come into use west of the Mis
sissippi river. The difficulty of uniform
ity in material, of uniformity or burning,
the uncertainty as to the special kinds ot
clay required, and the absence of any
clay In this vicinity known to be adapted
to this purpose, make a brick pavement
at this time in Topeka a very doubtful
Tbe most ardent advocates of brick ao
knowledge that clay suitable for pave
ment brick Is only occasionally found,
and say it must be a clay that will burn
to a hard body, having a tough fibre, that
clay which has considerable lime in is
unsuitable: that alluvial or surface clay
is also unsuitable; that clay belonging to
tbe coal measures is indlspensible. It is
not known that there is any such in Ne
braska. Hence It would seem to be wise
to wait until some brlch manufacturer
has demonstrated thai we have suitable
clay by a practical test. Say the placing
of an intersection in a portion of our city
where there Is considerable truckage, and
its use for a few years, before we go into
the brick paving business. Or wait until
older, larger and wealthy cities which are
able to lose money in experiments bave
soivea tne problem.

A novel feature or the May festival to
be given under the auspices of the First
M. E. church at the Rock Island rink
from Hay 6th to 11th, will be a corn ex
hibition, corn palace, etc. The pastor,
Mr. Oue, believing that there are
many engaged in the agricultural pur
suit who would cheerfully contribute to
tbe laudable undertaking on tbe part or
himself and his congregation, he has
conceiyed the plan of inviting every
farmer, regardless of locality, to donate
to the enterprise, and on the Sib day of
May ten bushels of corn are to be deliv
ered at the rink in sacks. Aa a recogni
tion of such offerings and for the sake of
tho interest iven to tbe whole enter
prise, a beautiful phaeton, made to order
by tbe Sechler Carriage Co.. of Moline,
for the purpose, is offered as a premium
for the best ten bushels of corn donated

tbe story about too 4-year-old boy from the

And speaking of faith la the efficacy of
prayer and of small boys both at once, the
Listener reminded or still another Incident,
of actual occurrence in the household of a
frtand. This friend had a littlo colored ser
vant boy whom he had brought from the
Bahama Ulands, and who hod been reared,
so far as be bad been reared at all, in the
simplicity of primitiva Methodism. The
small colored boy wanted a Jackknife very
much, and was overheard one night praying
for one very earnestly. Ilia matter went to
town next day, and on bis return in the
evening there was a jackknife laid on tbe
boy's window. The boy discovered tbe knife
promptly enough in the morning, examined
It eagerly, and exclaimed softly, with an air
of condemnation of bis own stupidity, ''TVny

Bapst, the ex-jeweler to the crown, in bis
book on the crown jewels, makes Henri out
more odious than historians generally paint
him. According to Bapst, when Charles IX
ordered tbe "massacre of St. Bartholomew,
Henri superintended tbe rifling by the palace
guard of the bodies of the Huguenots whom
they murdered. He let the soldiers have the
clothes, but kept the money and jewels for
himself. A watch, studded with diamonds,
rubles and other precious stones, and of extra
ordinary workmanship, was pert of the spoil.
It was taken out of the pocket of the queen's
favorite jeweler, who was a Huguenot, but
not a puritanical one, and who was probably
pointed out to tbe aBsassins because of bis
watch. Ho largely helped to fill tbe crown
caskets, having a passion for adorning himself
with Jewels. His chaplet was the richest In
fine pearls and other gems that ever was seen.

Impossible to look over them, and entered by

who admit only tbe favored few. Some of
the residences certain many acres inside of
these walls and the buildings are made up of
number of one story structures scattered
here and there about the grounds. All of
the foreign legations are of this nature and
the secretaries and the minister of tho Ameri

government pays between 2,0u0 and $3,000 a

"It seems to ms," remarked one of oar
citizens -the other day. "that physicians
are allowed eztrs ordinary license ta the
manner in whici they juggle with the
welfare of their j atients."
"Now here is Dr. who was at
tending Mr. up. to tbe time of his
death, and if he treated him for one
thing he treated t Jm for a dozen different
disorders. First, the doctor-said pneu
monia was the triable ; then it was con
sumption. Then the patient was dosed
for heart trouble, and so on until just
before he died it was ascertained that
disease of tbe kidneys was tbe real trou
ble, and that which had been at first
treated as pnoumonla. consumption,
heart disease, et;., were but the symp
toms of kidney disease.
"But then it was too late.
"This is only one case in a hundred,
and I am beginning to lose faith in - the
doctors altogether. In fact I haven't had
any need for their services since I began
to keep Warner's Safe Cure in my house,
a little over three years ago. Whenever
I feel a little out of sorts I take a few
doses of it, confident that the source of
all disease is in -be kidneys, which I
know Warner's Safe Cure will keep in
good order, and "will eradicate any dis
ease tbat may be lurking there. Had
Mr. followei a similar course, I have
no doubt that he would be alive today;
but of course all people don't tbink alike.
"One thing is certain, however, and
tbat is the doctors are allowed a little too
much freedom in tbe way tbey have of
pretending to I now tbat which they
really know nothing about. If they
don't know what is the real trouble with
the patient, they should admit it and not
go on and experiment at the cost of the

That Tired IFeeling
That extreme tired feeling which Is so dis
tressing and often so unaccountable la the
spring months, Is entirely overcome by Hood's
Sarsapartlla, which tones the whole body,
purifies the blood, euros scrofula and all
humors, cures dyspepsia, creates an appetite,
rouses the torpid liver, braces up the nerves,
and clears the mind. We solicit a comparison
of Hood's Sarsaparllla with any other blood
purifier In tbe market for purity, economy,
strength, and medicinal merit.
Tired all the Time
"I had no appetite or strength, and felt
tired all the time. I attributed my condition
to scrofulous humor. 1 had tried several
kinds of medicine without benefit. But as
soon as I had taken half a bottle of Ilood's
Sarsaparllla, my appetite was restored, and
my stomach felt better. I have now taken
nearly three bottles, and I never was so well."

Everybody needs and should tafc
spring medicine, for two reasons :
1st, The body is now more susceptible t
benefit from medicine than at any other season.
2d, The Impurities which have accumulated
in the blood should be expelled, and the sys
tem given tone and strength, before the pros
trating effects of warm weather are felt.
Hood s Sarsaparllla Is the best spring meCi
cine. A single trial win convince you of Its
snf eriority. Take It before It is too late.
The Beat Spring Medicine
"I take Hood's Sarsaparllla for a spring
medicine, and I And it Just the thing. It tones
up my system and makes me feel like a differ
ent man. My wife takes It for dyspepsia, and
she derives great benefit from it. She says it
is the best medicine she ever took." F. C.
TlTtf er, Hook & Ladder No. 1, Boston, Mass.
"Last sprlne I was troubled with twiiu
Caused by my blood being out of order. Two
bottles of Hood's Sarsaoarllla cured fn T
can recommend it to all troubled with affec
tions of the blood." J. Schoch, Peoria, 111.
