Hirnlxri a t Wkri the Prmil I'av
dertaklaa Will be 4'oaaplete
The Second avenue pavement will by
dood on Monday have entered the
block bount ed on the west by Fifteenth
street. Tbi re is quite a bunch of tracks
to pave betveen at this intersection as it
is where ' h bridge line of the Holmes
syndicate t irns into Fifteenth street on
its way to Third avenue, and this fact
will require a little more time at this
junction. The advance squad of curb
stone adjusters have almost reached
Fourteenth street. This leaves but
one more block to be put in
shape aru that is the unfor
tunate and much vrxed one lying
between Sitteenth and West Seventeenth
streets. The necessary grading here will
be done tl e first of the week and it is
hoped the pavers will with fair weather
reach it b a week from tonight. It will
take at lean one week to complete it and
it may tie erpecled that the 15th of the
month will not much more than witness
the entire rounding up of the job. Then
the gutter at the corner of Eighteenth
street and Second avenue for a short dis
tance is to be straightened, and it is also
the desire of the mayor to remove the ob
noxious crossings at the corner of
Nineteenth street. With this to do, the
contractus may congratulate themselves
if the latter part of the month
sees then out of the way. In this
connectioi the street superintendent
has a luty to perform in en
forcing th sidewalk it-solution along the
paved district where new erades- have
been tuari and he would fill his position
much moie acceptably if he would attend
toil witt out delay. The street and al
ley coram ttee should get at Union square
and then Second avenue will present the
appearance that is intended it shall, yet
People all over the city, enthus
iastic over the success of the present
paving, a-e beginning to talk of probable
extensions of the eood work early in the
spring, t is the plan and purpose of
the count il to order the paving of all the
! intersecting streets from, and including
Twentieti street, west to Fourteenth,
early in the spring a block at least
on end side of Second avenne.
This would extend the pavement
to First end to Second avenues and prac
tically in tnre the paving of the bulk of
the busit rss portion of the city and the
approarles to all the down-town depots
and the river. The council, it i also
quite likely, will be petitioned to pave
both Eighteenth and Twentieth streets
back as far as the bluffs, and Second ave
nue weft to the plow works. If this
much is to be done next year and it can
andougl.t to be the preliminaries should
be comnenced. Citj Attorney Haas is
anxious that the proceedings he entered
at the November term of the coun
ty couit and the assessment made,
etc., a.' well as the contract let
this winter so that the work may com
mence as soon as the frost leaves the
ground next spring. It is a very wise
idea on the city attorney's part and if the
council is to heed il as it no doubt will,
it ought to bestir itself in the matter.
The present council can not have too
much of this kind of public service to its
credit when it passes out of existence
next April. The present municipal body
has demonstrated its usefulness and good
judgment well so far. Let it be kept up

They were ad a I red at the lllla.i
Mtate Fair Aa Indantry te be
The greatest fair in the history of this
state has just terminated at Peoria. The
exhibitions of live stock and manufac
tared goods were particularity fine, but
there was no display at the fair that at
tracted more attention and more admired
than that of the Rock Island stove com
pany. The exhibit was in charge of
Mr. S. D. Cleland and Mr. A. D. Sper-
ry who had the stoves arranged in a very
attractive manner. Among the many
stoves made and exhibited by this firm
is the "Windsucker," a heating stove
possessing a wonderful combina
tion of virtues. It is a sani
tary beater, economical, cleanly, effl
clent and durable. They claim that
these stoves possess more of the essen
tials of a perfect beater for all purposes
and all fuels than any other now on the
market, the virtues of which are told in
"Riverside Oak Leaves," a circular is
sued by them, which will be mailed to
any address. There is also the "River
side Oak" that will burn any kind of
fuel; will heat a large amount of room,
is easily regulated and controlled; can be
used anywhere; is very durable, and will
keep fire over night with any kind of
ruei. ii is claimed lust mere is
no other heater of this style that
possesses all the above named
merits in so large a degree as the "River
side Oak." The ladies in attendance at
the fair were particularly interested in the
explanation of the virtues of the "River
side Range and Cook. This is the
only range on the market that
will bake and beat the water in the
reservoir at the same time. They will
bake quicker and more evenly than a
cook stove of same weight for the san.e
reason. Tbey will use less fuel as the
oven is heated from five sides instead of
four. All the stoves manufactured by
these works possess many other good
points which would take too much space to
here enumerate. Notwithstanding that
this firm have just completed large addi
tions to their works their capacity is too
small to fill the orders. Trade with them
has increased to such an extent that they
were compellod to withdraw their travel
ing men from the road. It is with a great
degree of pleasure that the Abqts is en
abled to speak of this most important
and successful industry in our city and
would that we had many more of such.
