THE WEEKLY HERALD, MARCH lo, I9O8. 1ST STREET JAM Brick for Beginning of Polk Street Improvement are Being Laid (From Fridays Dally.) This afternoon Seigneur & Gross will 1)pgln laying brick for the first real pavement ever put down In Amarlllo. Brick for the pavement was ordered several weeks ago from the Yoke corupuny at Cofl'eyvlllo, Kan., and the concrete foundation has been ready for tho brick for nearly a month. Xow the contractors will lay and tamp down a two-Inch layer of fine sand on tills foundation, and will then lay brick edgewise on tho Band. After the 'brick have been arranged In this way, Hand will be swept Into the lntersieea and then the whole Btirfaco will bo rolled down with the big Bteam roller so that the brick w ill Bet Into the sand mattress und pre sent a smooth surface on top. I.ald In thin way the brick from any part of the pavement can be easily re moved for making repairs or for laying gas or other pipe under the etrcet. $1.80 Ter Square Van!. .In the part of the block between Fourth and Fifth where this paving is being done there are 1,000 square yards and the contract on this piece of paving makes the cost, including he thirty-six nch concrete gutter f 1.80 per square yard. The crushed Btono method used on the west side of the street cost 1 1 .30 per square yard. At the rate of $1.80 per square yard, which would not bo exceeded and might be decreased on larger contracts, It would cost the owner of each thirty foot lot on Polk street $luti to pave his part of tho street. Each lot owner on that basis would pay for the paving f twenty-six leci of tno street on Ms sldo of the ! btrcet. The street tar compauy would be resonslblo for eight feet nd tho property owner on the other Side Of the street would pay for the other side. It was suggested at one time, oath property owner paid for tn pving of one-third of the street In front front of his lot, and tho city nd the street car company pay for the Galance, tho cost to the property cwnere would be $120 for each lot. $a some cities, payment for paving Improvements is made easier by di viding the expense In five or more nnual Installments which constitute liens on the property. In such cases to city Itself pays for all the pav ing by Issuing bonds for tho purpose and is in duo time reimbursed by the froperty owners through the' pay ment Ct the annual Installments. i To Tavc Sldo Street. To make tho paving on Folk street atlafactory. according to the opinion f many who nro familiar with the conditions it will be necessary to pave the side streets coming Into Polk for at least half a block each way from the main street, if tbes-e streets are not paved, Polk street will become In wet weather the dumping ground for mud from tho wheels of vehicles which 'have been driven over muddy streets and which shako off the ac cumulations when they reach the paved street. Already several prop erty owners on side streets have sig nified their willingness to join with any movement looking toward tho pavement of their streets. On Fourth etrcet, Amarlllo National Bank and J.' A. Wayland offer to join with property owners in paving Fourth street from Polk for at least a block and a half east to the end of the "Wayland building tn tho corner of Fourth and Taylor street. The ex pense of paving the side street would be much greater per lot on account of the greater street frontage. On the 'basis of payment "by each prop erty owner for half the street width In front of his lot, the cost would bo 1880 for the 140 foot frontage of each lot. On the basis of payment by the city for one-thrd and the property owners on each side for the other thirds, the cost per lot would be $560. Keal Estate Transfers. Alice E.

FORGER CAUGHT WITH THE GOOD (From Friday's Dally.) An investigation by O. M.-Saylor of the Saylor & Kendall store, and prompt acton on the part of men at tho First National Bank of Officer Keeton landed a would-bo forger In the county jail yesterday and per haps saved Amarlllo merchants from tho loss of a good many dollars. Late yesterday afternoon a young fellow who gave his name as G. G. Glover, applied at the Saylor & Ken dall storo with a check for $4 0. drawn in his favor on the First Na tional bauk by F. L. Davidson, which he wanted cashed. Tho clerk who attended liim took tho cheek to O. M. Saylor who told tho man that the signature would have to be verified by tho liank before tho store would cash tho check. Glover consented to this and Mr. Saylor went with the check to tho First National bank. Here on comparison several sight dif ferences were discovered between Glover's check and other Davidson checks at the bank. One check drawn by Davidson had been paid the day before. These differences lead the bank officials to summon an officer. On their return to tho store Mr. Saylor and Officer eKeton demanded a full explanation of tho man's deal ings with Davidson. His explana tlon strengthened the caso against him and they asked him to go back to tho bank with them. On the way back Glover tried to destroy some papers he bad in his pocket but the officer succeeded n getting thm out of his hands and these proved to be four more chocks drawn by Davidson for various amounts In favor of Glo ver and H. L. Mohn. Glover, or Mohn, offered as explanation that ho had been employed at the David son ranch for several days and that when he left a man named Mohn had taken his place, that Mohn had bought a saddle from him and had paid him through Davidson by the use of the Davidson checks. Fur ther explanations left much to be cleared away and Officer Keeton put the man under arrest and placed him in jail to await examination, TOUPFFER LOCATED FATHER IN CALIF (From Friday's Dally.) W. E. Toupffer, tho young niftn of whom accounts appeared In yos etrday's and Wednesday's papers, has now succeeded In locating his father and after a few more days' visit here with his uncle, E. 0. Cuddy, will leave for Stockton, Cal. The elder Toupffer Is now In that city and young Toupffer and his twiB brother who is still in Goldfield, will be enabled to carry out their wish of finding their aged father and shar ing their new prosperity with blm. Toupffer still believes that he re members so distinctly the spot on the prairie where his bother was bu- rled ?ears ago that he could go to It now. But he agrees with the opln. 1 Ion of other whom he has told the story that the faco of tho prairie might ha'Ce been ho changed since that time that this would bu an Im possibility, lie 1ms no records which would help him fix the date of his mother's death, by comparison with other dates, ho has pretty well es tablished the 1 1 inn as In tho fall of ISSS. lie ajd his twin brother were at that time barely six years old and whllo his memory of conditions and places must necessarily 'bo vague and Inexact, the death of their mother and her burial on tho prairie left such vivid pictures In his mind that, it seems as dear to htm, as he ex pressed It, "as If It was only yester day." Ho will not malio any further effort now to locate tho grave of his mother. "Perhaps, I couldn't find it any how," he says, "and she's resting now. I'll go and get my father. He's living and I ran do lilm some good." Many of the other details of the story when Toupffer told of his father and of his life here as a child on the frontier, may be explained as Is his account of bis mother's burial As a child his memory would not I he deflnlto regarding numbers and dates. As he and his brother left here and went to ether relatives shortly after the denth of their moth er, they never learned anything be yond their reeollectons of their early life with trail outfits and In camp with their father hero, and the pres ent visit has been tho first oppnrtunl- compare his childish recollections with facts as they aro now.
