STREET PAVING. Compressed Aspltaiiuiu Block Cave- XtlClll. In thl discussion of the pavement problem, which the fearful condition of our public streets has made of such vital interest to our citizens, there seems to be a growing belief that fora permanent pavement, which shall unite all the desirable qualities of wood while avoiding its imperfections, we must resort to the use of asplialtum in some form. Tim sheet asplialtum which is used so largely in Haris and in Washington, where it seems to give general satisfaction, inis not proved a success here. The South Park Commissioners had a sample block of it laid on -Michigan avenue, between Eighteenth ana Twentieth streets, but this lias needed frequent repairs to keep it in condition, a fact attributed to the severity of om climate. The compound asplialtum block wiiieh they also laid on .Michigan avenue, between Twenty-first and Twenty-second streets, lias done much belter. It lias been in use two years, inis never been repaired at all, is in as perfect condition today as when first laid down, and seems to have won friends daily from the time of introduction. Being made under pressure ami in block form, it is en abled to withstand the action of frost, and, while perfect I v smooth and almost as noise less as wood, it gives a perfect footing for horses, even in winter. Alter thoroughly investigating tills pave ment here anti in Eastern eilies. where it Inis been used for several years, and where it is rapidly growing In public lavor, the South Bark Commissioners decided to adopt it tor use on the whole boulevard, and would have done so had it been possible lo get tile neees sarv mac hinerv here in time to manufacture the blocks. But they diet not feel justified in taking any chances of failure lo get the blocks when the street was ready to receive them. Weave now glad lo be informed that responsible parties have taken hold, of the matter, that the proper machinery is being constructed, anti that by the opening of spring it will he possible to procure, an ample supply of me blocks manufactured here for use in the city.

This corset lias home off the honors wherever exnihitvd, and it has a reputation for excellence everywhere. Tile medical fra ternitv are unanimous in their appreciation ofthe'Mme.

ALL COME TO CHICAGO. The growing importance of Chicago as a trade centre is hardly realized even by oar owu merchants. It reaches out in all directions, and buyers from all sections seek Chicago as the great central market. A very good example of this tendency is shown by the sales of pianos during the past week alone at the music rooms of Messrs. 1 elton. Pomerov A Cross, the representative music house of this city. Among Die. buyers who eiinie to Chicago-and personally made their selections from tne stock ottered by this firm were: 31i'~. I'red liallen, of Xewi ork City.* Mr. .1. M.

Colo.: mat Miss Myra A. Carr, of Seattle, Wash. Ter. Tne personal popularity of the linn mentioned as well as the splendid stock of instruments they can always show, no doubt has a great inllnence in extending the trade of the city in tnis particular line, but Chicago as a whole naturally receives credit for the enterprise of her individual representative houses.

Am! vnu will And a MUCH CATARRH. What the Term Signifies to Those Wh« Are Led to Believe that the Disease Can Be Cured with a Quack Nos trum Advertised for “A DOLLAR,” or tlotv Catarrh End* If Arrested.-* In support of the following statements I appeal nob to physician*. or to medical books, or to patent medi cine venders, but to every family In the land who n«s lost friend* with consumption. Asa direct resultof catarrh neglected or tampered with, the dariins pmns sometimes felt through the chest, consequent upon sympathetic Inflammation above, almost before tho subject is aware of It, revives Into an unca-y feeling, or dull, nchlmr sensation beneath the shoulder blade: or perhaps it b umn in tho side and sh*»r «*••» of breath.

Thus wearilv the days go by. until at len.rth worn out with pain and tired of life, like deepening no.ndows of evening, the pallor of death steals over the frame, the face mantles with a carting Wialle. and the weary heart la still forever. * ■ Among the hundreds clylmf all rtround us, many of them in the morning of lile oflcunsumpUon, more than half this number can revorfito the time when it was “nothin* but catarrh.” rlhe little rill that trickled over the mossy, ledge far away In toe mount ain has swollen ton river In the valley, ami on lw turbid bosom are borne the wreck* of many a wasted. life. This is no fancy picture, but tho lesson is. that con sumption rarely attacks the lunxsat the outset, but Is rather the sequence of that catarrhal crindiUon of the throat and facial cavities, which precedes It. Ueader.if you have catarrh. every b eath of air In haled ini** the lungs Is drawn over a diseased surface; cun you doubt Us tendency.' No matter how struts? the constitution naturally, ibis disease will break it. Be the face never so beautiful, its mildew touch will bmticu the cheek, and pule the lip.&od rtual the lustre from the eye. It nmttuit not how much money you have paid, nor how inuca medicine you have tawen, what br. Somebody sutd. or IJri homebody else did. the fact that your disease remains ts proof sufficient that what was dune was not what ought to have been the variety* but me kind and its application to the disease.
