BRICK PAVING POPULAR
Edwards) Walsh' ajaatr jet at Er
anM ttlrrst Satisfaction.
The Evabston Press has the following
as showing the degree of popularity with
which not only brick paviog.but the work
of a Rock bland contracting firm is receiv
ed aiXranston, the work described being
done on what is really Chicago avenue:
On Friday of this week a representas
tive of the Press was invited to accoras
pany a delegation from Chicago to exam
ine the new brick pvem?nl which is now
completed on Chicago avenue from Hal
versity place to Church a rec; The com
pany consisted of D P. Purringham, of
Chicago, owner of the clay bank at
Oalestiurg, from which tbis inimitable
quality of brick is manufactured. F, L.
Fort, a representative of the Chicago
Tines, Mr. vanierrer, of Dayenpart,
Iowa, Charles Locke, a conlracor of the
city, and Mr. Uurlburt of the firm of E.
A. Cuinmings & Co., Chicago.
Under the escort of Messrs.
Edward & Wa sh, the contractors, and
Commissioner Fitch, the party gave the
work a inoruugn ana critical examina
tion, and were impressed with its excel
lence, both as to the quality of the mate
rial and tbe workmanship of the contrac
tors. The paving consists of two courses
of Purrington Oalerburg brick, the lower
course being laid flu upon a previously
prepared foundation and the interstices
filled with fine sand. A 1 tyer of sand one
and one half inches thick is plsced on top
of this and a second course of brick laid
edgewise and well covered wi h fine sand
completes the pavement which is well
rolled with a light horse roller to com
pact the surface to a uniform face. The
roadway is 40 feet in width the outer
one foot of each side consisting of the
cement cutter of the Parkburst com
bined curb and gutter, the excellence
and econemy of which had never before
been realised by us, but considering that
it supplies the place of one square foot
of paving costing 20 cents, it waa at
once evident that at 75 cents a running
foot, it wss fully 10 cents a foot cheaper
than Berea or Oolithic limestone at 65
cents per foot. The work throughout
showed conscientious effort on the part
of the contractors, and the citizens con
ferred with, express the hiehes satis
faction at the prospect of having the best
improved street in the village. The clay
of which the brick are made, is of a pe
culiar kind nd the entire absence of
po osity combined with a uniform hard
ness of interior as well as exterior, gives
promise of greater durability and streusth
of wear. There will be 915.000 brick
used in the construction of the 1.720 feet
length of street to be paved

proportion of our city's best play-goers

The subject announced for tomorrow
evening at the First Methodist church,
'Curing the Drunkard," as it is accom
plished at the now famous village of
Dwight. 111., will no doubt awaken gen
eral interest. Rev. F. W. Merrill, the
present pastor of the Firjt church, has
been for the three years past located at
Dwight and is competent to speak from
a non partisan standpoint on the work of
the Keeley Institute. The paper, east
and west have teemed with news of the
wonderful cures wrought by the use f
the bi-cbloride of gold cure. Not only
the liquor habit, but also the morphine cr
opium habit, tbe tobacco habit, tie
chloral habit and the cocaine habit are
treated there with seemingly equal sue
cess. Mr. Merrill was elected as first
chaplain of the Bi-Chloride of Gold club,
an organization among tbe patients of the
institution and conducted an early Sun
day morning service before the clnb at
9:30 a. m. continuously. .There are very
many in these three cities that are deeply
interested in this new temperance move'
ment and that will be glad to avail them

Tkft "Arlstaa Kicker."

on us half a dozen limes within a year.
And when we beard of this chap we

- Cold Facts. We notice that our es
teemed contemporary is advertising for a
political editor, "one thoroughly posted
on the politics of tbe day." To such a
one he promises a steady situation at good
pay. We dearly love the old mossback
who claims to own and publish tbe alleged
weekly down the street, but when he at
tempts to deceive the public we feel it
our duty to state a few cold facts
. In the first place he haa only 331 sub
scribers. Secondly, our people don't care
a copper for politics. Thirdly, be has to
pay nig bands in store orders, and bis pol
itical editor would starve to death in two
weeks. He got a young man from Boston
out there one summer, borrowed of him $3

zled bis white shirt, and then discharged

young and confiding man as he started
on his 2.000 mile walk will never be
