OUR PAVING liRICK PLANT.

The Rockford Construction company
has in consideration some extensive im
provemcnta to its paving brick plant at
Sears and will probably put them ia with
in a few weeks. It is the expectation to
erect a large new dry house and several
additional kilns, involving an expense
of $10, 030. The company has made an
excellent job of Twentieth street just com
pleted, and 13 fulfilling its contract on
Second avenue with the same care. The
home product material has proven par
ticularly satisfactory, and the delays
suffered last year through the failure
of portions of the machinery have
since been entirely overcome, ,and in the
future the company hopes to keep the
"We were as much disappointed last
year as the people of Rock Island could
possibly have been," said Superintendent
Meade this morning. "It was a great
loss to us to be delayed, and while ob
stacles seemed to confront us on every
hand, owing to the unsatisfactory work
ing of some of the machinery, we never
once lost faith in the quality of the brick
clay surrounding Rock Island, is capable
of producing. It was for this reason
that we did not bid on the Moline av
enue contract . We did not feel like ssk
ing any more favors of the Rock Island
council until we could show what we
couli do when all things were favorable
to the uninterrupted progress of the
work. We have not gotten everything
at the plant into the entire state of per
fection that we hope to attain yet, but
with the further improvements in contem
plation we believe we will be in eood
shape before the season is far advanced,
to do all the work we can get, and do it
well. When the council submits bids
for the new extensions, etc., now under
consideration, we will be heard from
again in all probability."

"A few weeks ago when butter, eggs
and potatoes were so scarce," sail a gen
tleman to a Clinton As;e reporter recen-
1?, "I started out one day to purch&se
a crock of butter. Nearly all the leading
grocers about town were visaed but in
vain; they were either closed out entire
ly on butter or hd but a few pounds
laid by for a requ'.ar customer. Some
what discouraged I at last entered an un
inviting looking stnre on one of the prin-
cinal business streets, when, presto,
change! there I fouad about 800 pounds
of the Ccest bu'ter I ever came
across in the city, while several
baskets of fresh looking eggs and
six barrels of potatoes were conspicuous
ly displayed on one side of the store.
Wondering how this man had p'enty of
these articles which were commanding
unusual lare prices while his competi
tors could not find their orders, I made
my purchase and departed." ,
"Weil, did you ever find out the
reason!" asked the reporter as the gentle
"Yes, I found out the reason a few
days later hat- man didn't advertise
and people were entirely ignorant of the
fact that be hid a pound of butter and a
dozen of eges. I was in the store again
the other day and that grocervman had
some of that butter yet, but he is selling
it lor cooking purposes, and you cin
smell it the whole length of the store it
spoiled on his binds."
