THE MANNER OF MAKING IT.

recent number of a New York scien
title paper contains an interesting article
on the subject of brick pavement, that so
fully covers the matter of material and
construction that it is worth condensing,
as being of general interest to our city at
the present time. The writer says:
There are perhaps fifty cities in the
United States - using brick pavement.
Some have had them over fifteen years.
In Decatur, 111., they have been in use
for six years. All brick pavements have
not given satisfaction, especially when
common building brick have been used.
They show wear in a very short time, but
good, hard brick give satisfaction. There
is no pavement equal to hard brick ex
cepting granite blocks, and it is doubtful
if they would last as long as small bricks.
Suitable clay for paving brick does not
exist everywhere, but twenty samples
from different parts of Illinois have been
successfully tried at Decatur, though
some are better than others. Over five
miles of brick pavement have been laid
down in Decatur. The clay used by the
tile company is called the yellow joint
clay, having a large percentage of silicate
of iron. It is tempered or soaked for
twentyfour hours before using, then car
ried to a stone separator and crushed. It
is dropped from tbe cjuahcr to an eleva
tor and fed to the brick machine. From
this machine it is forced in three streams
and is cut by a wire forming bricks of or
dinary size. That is to say, of tbe ordinary
size before burning, S inches in length by
A in with and 21 iu thickness. They
are then carried to the drying room,
heated by steam, or set up over the bnrn
ing kilns. When they are dry they are
set "skintling," or at angles across one
another to allow the heat to pass be
tween'tbem in the down-draught kilns.
Experience has proved that good paving
bricks cannot tie burned in open-draught
kilns. While some clay will stand fire
long enough to burn as hard as rock in
open kilns, yet even then tbe bricks
would be much better in shape and
quality if burned in close kilns. "The
bricks are burned from six to seven days,
the first three or four days very slowiy,
then heated so as to partially melt, or
vitrify them, which must be very care
"Many clays are worthless or only
worked with much trouble on account of
the gravel they contain." With proper
ly prepared clay of suitable quality, ma
chine bricks are much better than hand
made. Tbe stiff-clay machine-made
brinks are used for paving, bridges, tun
nels, and docks, where great strength is
Tbe pavement should be constructed
in the following manner: "Tbe foun
dation being brought to the proper grade,
there is spread over it six inches of gravel
or sand, which is struck oC with a broad
gauge fitted to the grade of the street. A
course of brick is laid on the flat surface
running lengthwise of the street. Over
this there is spread an inch of
screened sand eauged and prop
erly smoothed off. Tbe top course
is laid with bricks on their edge length
wise across tbe street, care being taken to
break joints in both courses. Tbe whole
is covered with an inch of screened sand
which is swept into the crevices. After
this a roller, weighing five or six tons, is
passed over tbe pavement several times.
If the street is properly rolled it will be
as smooth as a wooden pavement and al
most as noiseless.
Tbe street should be thoroughly
drained, as the lasting qualities of the
pavement depends much on the drainage.
Water weakens brick very much. Drain
tile and open gutters along the side are
recommended. "The upper course of
brick should be very bard and vitrified."
In Decatur whole blocks are paved with
brick as smooth as glass and hard as Hint,
and no brick of that description show
any sign of wear. The bricks are harder
than steel, for a file will not scratch them.
Horses do not slip or fall on these brick
pavements owing to tbe small surface
between tbe seams.
"Another advantage is that they do not
oak water. If water keeps out they are
not injured by frost and are almost inde
structible. The Decatur Tile company
laid a block of brick four years ago
agreeing to make all repairs for five years
free of charge. So far tbe street has
needed no repairs whatever, and prom
ises to remain so for the next twenty
years. The first cost of such pavement
in Decatur is from $1.25 to $1.50 per
square yard. The article applies prin
cipally to the brick made by the Decatur
Tile company, but the same machinery
and the same methods are used in various
other places, Bloomington among tbem.

This ptyrli-ss clock wus Imilt in 1C"2. Two
centuries lutr rrpnira wru umli'rt.-ikrn, aud

contlnned to oxclte womler ly reason of its

The hours and minutes, the days of the
week, with correspond inj; sins of the plan
ets, are marked both outside and in. An in
ner dial not less than nine meters in circum
ference gives the day of tho month, the dom
inical letter and tbe saint or saints of the day.
Two winged fipures are seated at either side
of tho small dial. .At each quarter tbe right
band figure strikes upon a liell, which is in
stantly repeated upon each of the other dials
by figures from above, representing the four
ages Infancy strikes the first, quarter. Youth
the second. Manhood tho third and Old Age
the last. Death, placed upon a pedestal be
side Old Age, strikes tho hour; aud attheend
of each hour the second winged figure turns
an hour glass, whom contents are exhausted
in that space of time.
As noon strikes a procession of the twelve
apostles appears, and each inclines in turn
and after his own peculiar manner before a
figure of Christ, which, placed ou a pedestal,
extends its hands above them as if in bene
diction. At the same time the cock perched
on tbe left tower strotches bis wings and
crows three times. Cars containing little fig
ures emerge alternately from a mass of clouds
above the hour dial to indicate tbe days of
the week, which are ingeniously represented
by heathen divinities. Tbe Connoisseur.
I have been a great sufferer from ca
tarrh for over ten years; had it very bad,
conld hardly breathe. Some nights I
could not sleep had to walk the floor.
I purchased Ely's Cream Balm and am
using it freely, it is working a cure surely.
I have advised several friends to use it,
and with happy results in every case. It
is tbe one medicine above all others made
to cure catarrh, and it is worth its weight
In gold. I thank God I have found a
remedy I can use with safety and that
does all that is claimed for it. It is cur

At length she closer to aim crept.

He smiled, and as a manly arm
Around bar waist he threw.

RrMdiiiK RugliHh Pheasants.
Tbe experiment of profiagatiug English
pheasants in this country is proving a suc
cess, and it has been shown that tbe birds will
do well in districts where they can be prop
erly protected. Tbe Jekyl Island club, owing
to the situation of its grounds on un island,
reports a wonderful increase in its pheasants.
Seventy-eight binls were originally brought
over from England. From these birds eggs
were obtained. They were placed under com
mon barnyard hens to be batched out, and a
thousand young wero obtained. When large
enough they were turned loose and grew
rapidly. One hundred more pheasant bens
are to be brought over from England. It is
believed that in a short time the club will
have good pheasant shooting.
Further north trouble has been found in
raising the birds, both from tho severity of
tbe climate aud from outsido hunters. Re
peated trials, however, are bound to win, and
with stricter gnmo laws there is no reason
why tbe bird should not thrive.. In the south
the climate is just right for them. For food
acorns seem to bit their taste, and they fatten
rapidly upon the nut. New York Times.

"I have seen many narrow escapes from
death aud witnessed many thrilling inci
dents," said veteran James Tilghman, of
Queen Ann's county. Mr. Tilghman was a
brave and intrepid officer in Gen. J. . B.
Stuart's command, and is now a prominent
member of tbe Maryland Confederate soci
eties. Because of Lis reckless daring and
chivalrous dash he was dubtwd "Headlong
Jim Tilghman" during the war and the name
has clung to him ever since. "One of the
most laughable incidents 1 ever witnessed
while under fire," he continued, "was the
conduct of a long, lank North Carolinian at
tbe Wilderness. Bis leg bad been shot off
early in the war and he was supplied with a
wooden one, with which, strange to say, he
got about with remarkable facility. One day
be was charging with bis company and waa
climbing over a fence when, spat I a minis
ball buried itself In his wooden leg. Eject
ing an immense stream of tobacco juice,
'Darn ye, I fooled ye that time,' he yelled
triumphantly, and rushed on with his com
rades." Baltimore News.
Don't think that because a man happens to
be big and brawny and healthy be has no
feelings. Such men are sometimes regarded
as if made of door binges and leviathan hide,
and sash cords for nerves. It may be a mis
take. There are men whose spiritual and
physical make up is after this fashion, and
some of tbem are big men. But the big
men are not all so. There are soma who
are as tender as girls as sensitive as the
mimosa, and as quick to receive an Impression
as the down covered skin of a ripe peach. It
is worth while to be gentle with such men.
Kindness is not thrown away on them. They
may be growing old, but as they advance
they retain much of the boyish feeling they
had when they weighed fewer pounds than
they do now. If they are not trodden upon
they may make happy old men when they
are a little further on in years. But it is
easy to sour them and crush them and make
them disagreeable. Don't do it Few people
ever think of a big man as one who has any
feelings worth considering, and yet many
are as tender hearted as babes. Woman's

"Tbe instruction here is quite free, but the
parents of the child sign an agreement giv

years. It is almost essential that ballet
training should be begun early in life. 1

are most teachable; after 10 years old it is
too late. As to payment, these little mites
of 6 and 6 get salaries of nine and ten shil

stage, and in a couple of years they can get
fourteen and fifteen shillings a week." New

Yesterday I sat at a table in a Madison
street restaurant, when a rustic looking man
entered and was given a seat opposite me.
Ills order was for baked wbitefisb. It cams

of it lay a sprig of spinach. This the coun
tryman took in his hand, and after smelling
of it once or twice and toying with it, put it
in the buttonhole in the lapel of his coat, say
ing as he did so: "This is a very nice little
