a new era in cigars.

rire Clay.
The day Is not fur distant when Ottawa
will be tli center of an Immense Industry as
yet comparatively young, but Its usefulness
is rccognl.ed In all sections of the world.
I'iro clay U a necessary article- in many of
our manufacturing industries brick, tile,
pottery, Iron making, glass making, Ac.
Until recently all that has been used in Otta.
wu and this part of the state has been
brought hundreds of miles, principally from
the south. A revolution has taken effect,
ai.d now Otttwa Is supplying tho demand
herself. Lying just below tho coal that
comes near tho surface cast of tho city Is a
vein of fire clay of tho very best quality, av
euglng nearly ten feet in thickness. The
extent of tho bed Is unknown, but covers
hundreds of acres, at least.
Last spring, It will be remembered, a Mr.
Ooollttlc camo to this city and contracted for
the purehaso of about thirty. Ave acres of
land lying along the north bank of the canal
east of Fox river. He erected works thereon
and proceeded to manufacture fire brick by
the "dry process." This, however, proved a
failure, and a few weeks since he sold his In.
terests to Messrs. II. B. Williams aud C. B,
IIcss, of this city. These gcntlemon at once
proceeded to make some Improvements and
are now manufacturing fire brick, both com.
mon and pressed, by the old way. Tho Im
provements consist of almost entirely re-
building thu works. Tho main building Is
20x50 feet, two stories high, and an L run.
ning west SOxoO feet in width, also two sto
ries high. Tho former contains the engine,
boiler, crusher, elevator, screen, Jcc. The
latter, both Moors, will be used for moulding
and drying purposes. Tho whole works
when finished will bo heated by steam. At
present 4,000 brick are made dally, but the
capacity will bo increased soon to 8,000. Be.
sides the brick, large quantities of ground
clay are shipped In bulk to consumers at
Joliet, Peoria and other points; the cars be.
ing loaded direct from the elevator by means
of a spout.
Tho clay Is obtained on tho spot, an In
dined shaft and tramway leading from tho
crusher In tho buildiuK to the bed under
ground. At present but two miners are en
gaged in taking out the clay, but the quan-
tities theyhandlo would astonish an ordinary
man. Just so would the man who moulds
tho brims one man alone, by hand, mould.
Ing 4,000 bricks a day,-having two assistants
to prepare tho moulds and carry them away.
In the spring Messrs. Williams & IIcss
propose to make some additions to their
works and engage extensively in the manu
facture of fire clay, drain tile, sewer pipe, Ac.
Rev. Mrs. Harm, of Earlvillc, will
preach in Wedron next Sunday at 11
o'clock a. H. ; also at Dayton in the
evening.
Remember tho If', u. cass snoes have no
equal In tho market, and Maker Bros, have
tho exclusive right.
Kx Constable J. AV. Urown, on Saturday
night, set four traps in the vicinity of
Starved Rock and next morning found
that he had trapped a coon, a red fox and
a fine, large otter. Tho otter is the only
ono that has been caught in this vicinity
in over a dozen ot years. The fellow, how
ever, bore signs of having mado more than
one narrow escape heretofore, as his front
toes were gone and he had other marks of
the trap on his limbs.
