and the plant will be erected nt.
Sand-lime brick Is a new and val?
uable addition to building material. |
It has been In use In this country
only since 1901, when the first. Amer-v
lean plant wns established. During'
the pnst five years Its qualities have
been recognized to such an extent
that number of plants has grown to
140 and In all parts of tho country
fine, buildings have boon constructed
with this material.
Where Clay Is Scarce.
It is admitted that tho sand-lime
brick will never displace burned clay
brick entirely In localities where clay
Is good and fuel fuel cheap, but even
under thcBe circumstances It Is said
that the now brick can successfully
compete with the old in quality, ap?
pearance and coBt. Tho special field

"The Prince of Pilsen.''
Tonight "The Prince of Pilsen"
comes to the Academy of .Music again
and. judging from various favorable
newspaper comments, Manager Sav?
age Is not allowed the Prince to feel
his age. Following Ib what the Nor?
folk Vlrginlan-Pllot had to say yes?
terday :
"Mr. .less Dandy came before the
footlights at the Academy or Music
last night in "The Prince of Pilsen," It
was the 1,001 time he had donned
the role of Hans Wagner, the Zinzln
naty brewer.
"There was a large audience pres?
ent to witness the opening of Mr.
Dandy's engagement here and the
fact he has been seen in Norfolk of?
ten before In the same role didn't
seem to detrnct one bit from the
pleasure the audience derived.
"Tho Prince of Pilsen is as fresh
and fuscinaling In its music and hu?
mor now as it was the first night it
came here, when Camille Clifford,
who is a real countess in dear old
England now, sang the part of the
Norfolk girl in the 'Song of the Ci?
"Tho scenery and costumes are
bright, and clear, as all of Henry W.
Savage's production accessories aro.
and the chorus Is good.
"Of course, Mr. Dandy is funny.
That's understood, and Pauline Guz?
man, as the gay widow Crocker, is a
fascinating widow indeed.
"All of the audience was glad to
see Jeanette Bageard again in the role
of Sldonle, the little r'tench maid.
There Is no one who can sing 'Keep
It Dark' just like Miss Bageard does.
"Tho entire company is good and
the Heidelberg song and 'Pictures' in
Smoke' were well rendered by George
Lydecker, as Carl Otto, the real

"Soldiers of Fortune'' and "Hanson's

ho has previously appeared, in fact,

a college bred Indian has been se?
