HIS FMBLEM OF SORROW.

The Pterra Jocrnal has some exatllenl
suggestiors regarding the care that shiid
he exercUed ia properly inspecting brick
pavements duiicg the process of con
struction: Now that ptv;menl has hefaa in earn
est it would be wf 11 that the city imilu.ii
ties look to the inspection of brick strict
ly. We notiee that on Adams street
every brick has been handled by some men
who ore detailed as isspectors, but fim

gave evidence cf weakness. Some were
cracked almost half in two and ethers
were so brittle that when they were laid
down on the pile tbey chipped off. This
c'ass of material sbould never be allowed
to enter into the construction of the pave
ment on Ad i cd 8 street. Erory brick
should be sound asd perfect. There has
been and is today an opinion existing in
the minds of a great many that Adams
street ehoald b paved with granite
blocks in order that it near stand
tbe traffic which daily paste ever it.
We are confident that craniie blocks
are no better than brick where they are
properly selected and put down accord
ing to the best known devices of tbe
present day. Tbe contractors wfco are
doing this work have started eut in tbe
hopes of doing satisfactory work. Tbey

Some of tb speakers at tbe Garosey
square meeting thought it goad policy to
antagonize sunset park. It isn't. Sun
set park is asking merely to be set apart
by ordinance for park purposes. When
the time for improvement cones the
property balaera expect to be assessed,
and they expect in tbe meantime to get
up a fund that will pay for the grading
and laying ont of the ground . Garnsey
park does not help l's own cause by op
posing a beautifying movement else
where . Union . '
The Union fur sotae reason did not
regard the Garnsey square meeting of
sufficient tiupurlanse or interest to have a
representative present: nevertheless it
should have had sufficient regard for
accuracy and trath to have learned actual
facts before making a statement. There
was not a word said at the Garnsey
square meeting antagonistic of Sunset
park. The only point raised was that
Garnsey square had been commenced,
and the people of the lower end of town
hal waited patiently for ike finishing of
Spencer equare before asking for tse
completion of their own square and they
belieyed their lure ought to come next
ia tbe eyes of tbe couneil. The Alt
ers believes they are right, and that not
nnly the majority of the people, bnt of
the couneil. are of that same opinion.

Davenports second annual fair and ex.
position promises to be a grand one.

Bhowlnc That New York Ia No Place Car
a. Mourning Mortal.
A man who was carrying a very mnch
battered white ping hat in his hand, and
whose countenance exhibited great per
turbation, accosted a policeman near the
foot of Chambers street yesterday and
wanted to know if there was anything
on the fao nft'd-. vr1i that oonld be
Bitid to be held sacred in New York.
"Lots of 'era," calmly replied the offi
cer. "What's the trouble with yon?"
. "Well, I was down here at a pier to
see a man. I had seen him and was
coining away when a young man 6teps
up to me and says he observes that I am
wearing an emblem of sorrow. I replies
that I am, and that it is for my uncle
who died last week."
"Then yon had a weed on this hat, did
you?" queried the officer.
"I did. I bought it in Pafcerson. It
was the finest weed I conld buy for
money, and it was only three days old.
The yorsng man observes that death was
a sorrowful thing, and I agrees with him.
tfhen he tells rue that he has lately lost
his. dear mother and is feeling all broka
up because he has no money to buy a
weed for his hat. It make him feel
heart sick to go around and see other
peeie wearing weed for their uncles,
while he can't wear none for the dead
auothsr who ideeed Ik r lwiod on Lais IwaJ
when she was dying and charged him to
"Well, what happened?"
"Why, sir, he wants to borrow ray
weed tJwear on his hat to a picnic up
the river. I telxf him that! I can't lt-iid a
weed which is mourning for tuy UHtfo to
go mourning for somebody's mother, and
tkt-u he asks me to cut it in two and trive
"I never hoard of the like."
"Nor 1, sir; and 1 plainly tells hiia so.
I advises him that it he can't mourn on
his hat to noun in his heart, which is
just as good ami much cheaper, but hj
ffis mad, knocks my hat oil and eieliber
a t er rein res rite MnbK-ni and adwrua
kis M slwk hat wkh.it."
"AnTdi'ttn't yen resist?"
"Yes, sir, but he hauls off and landr
on my chin and loosens four of tuy teeth,
and while I am sitting down to recover
myself he disappears. Did yon ever hear
of the likes, sir?"
"Never. You'd better go to the station
honse and make compfaint."
"I wril sir. I tliittk it is my duty to.
If such things are allowed no one ean be
safe in New York. I've got an aunt who
is expected to turn up her toes any day,
and if a man can't be protected in wear
ing an emblem for his uncle, what's he
going to do in case of his aunt?" 31.
