The Elegant Specimens of
Serpentine Rock Just
Taken Out
Machinery On the Road For I
Properly Dressing the I I
We had the pleasure the other day
of seeing a sample of serpentine fllar
ble that came from the Provo Slate
Quarry No 1 situated one and one
half miles east of the depot at the
month of Slate canon and owned by
Messrs Ilathenbruck lv Pike of this
eit °
eitThe sample is certainly the finest
piece of stone for ornamental purposes
we have seen produced in Utah
In conversation with Mr IIathen
bruck we are enabled to furnish the
following statistics obtained through
actual experiments with the rock
ColorDark green weighs a little
over 170 pounds per cubic foot crush
ing weight 20000 pounds per cubic
inch The rock has been carefully
analyzed and shows the following
Silica > 6050
Alumina 1970
Iron protoxide 7S3
Lime 112
Magnesia 220
Potash 318
Soda 220
Water 327
Acids have no influence whatever
over the rock It will stand the
weather for centuries without scaling
hence it is very adaptable for outside
house trimming The grain is dense
admitting no absorption of water
Every piece can be utilized as it has
proved to possess the qualities of the
best known stones for razors and all
wood working tools where a fine edge
is required It is used for mantels
stairways knewel posts billiard
bureau and table tops tilings side
walls and in fact eyerything where
strength beauty and durability
is required It can be worked into
every conceivable shape by carv
ing turning or planing
In connection with the Serpentine
the gentlemen who own the Provo
quarries have also a purple rooting
slate that has all the requisites of a
superior quality The cleanage is
perfect smooth and even well com
bined with toughness for durability
A roof finished and covered with this
material will outlivagcuerations with
out any repairs whatever
All fragmentary pieces of various
sizes suitable for furnace linings is
also very valuable as it withstands the
action of fire oxides and carbon those
very essential requisites for blast fur
naces When crushed and made into
bricks the rock has the quality of the
best grades of fire brick Of course
the latter uses are auxiliary features
of the stone as the main uses house
riinminus inside and out and furni
ture purposes are very remunerative
We merely mention the other purposes
to which it can be placed in order to
demonstrate the utility of the material
The prices for the finished material
either for roofing or furniture purposes
are extremely moderate The con
sumer saves on eastern prices from
50 to 150 per cent and this not count
ing the money lost in breakages on
account of the shorter haul
Wherever the samples have been
shown they have been pronounced of
the best quality and in eastern mar
kets dealers and shippers have not hesitated
itated to say it is equal to the best
quality of the best Welsh slates
Arrangements are being made now
for machinery with w Inch to saw and
dress tle serpentine slates As soon
as this arrives the lucky proprietors
having an ample market will be ena
bled to run the quarries to their full
capacity the year around
The roofing slate has to be split by
hand and trimmed by machines the
machinery for this latter purpose be
ing on the ground now All that is
ticking is the experienced slate split
ters Mesbrs Ilathenbruck f Pike
are desirous of communicating with any
parties used to this work if any are to
lie font d in the Territory
There is no doubt but what the ef
forts of the owners to open up this irn
> urtant branch of home industry will
be crowned with success and wo firm
ly believe it will become a greatsonrce
of wealth to the whole Territory Just
as soon as one slate quarry is fairly
lawn bed on the sea ol commercial pros
perity other slate quarries will be lo
cated and opened up in this Territory
A good slate quarry will be a source of
revenue for generations to come It
differs 1 somewhat from the rest of metal
mining the projects being perhaps
smaller but a slate quarry is of longer
duration and hence more staple

Another Fire Attributed tc
Provos Periodical
Fire tug
Thursday night about halfpast ten
an alarm of fire sounded through the
city A few men were standing on
the Bank corner some Of them being
members the Enterprise band returning
turning from a political meeting and
laving their instruments they imme
liately blew their horns which soon
attracted attention Judge Wm II
Brown ran to the Courthouse and
rang the fire alarm Crowds were
soon hastening towards the file which
was found to be the Boston Lumber
Company The fire engine and hose
cart soon arrived and the hose was
ran out but owing to the rough con
dition of J street from the Courthouse
corner the lire was shaken out of the
engine and about fifteen minutes
elapsed before enough steam was
secured force the water through the
hose In the meantime crowds of men
were busy carrying lumber doors
sash etc from the builincs Which it
was soon found could not be saved
The firemen turned their attention to
thp piles of lumber at tho back of the
building which with hard work by
the people was saved almost intact
In the therttre almost a panic started
after the alarm was given and be
tween the third and fourth arts the
theatre was almost deserted Most of
the people however returned
Mr Boston estimated the loss at
about 5500 of which amount he had
insurance to cover 4700 A can with
coal oil was picked up and it was at
first thought that it had bean usdd to
s ° t the place on fire but one of the
men who arrived first found it in the
office and threw it out The origin of
the fire is unknown but it was un
doubtedly the Fork of an incendiary
Mr Boston states that for two or three
mornings before the fire he has found
the gate fastenings broken and also
one of the office windows The loose
papers were saved but the safe was
too heavy for the few men who were
the first to arrive and bv the time a
crowd had collected the fire had got
too much of a hold

Work on the B Y Academy
and Central Buildings
Progressing Lively
Contractors Report All the
Work That They Can
Talk about dull times in Provo
said a prominent man to a DISPATcn
reporter the other day you just look
around and see the money that is be
ing expended in buildings this year
and consider the amount of employ
ment it is furnishing and then answer
the question for yourself
In obedience to this behest the re
porter started out and the following
is a partial list ot the buildings being
rushed to completion in Provo
First we have the B Y Academy
there is no wind about its comple
tion as masons and carpenters have
been working for some weeks now
and the result of their labor is that
the places where the weather and
small boys had played havoc have been
rebuilt and in addition to this the
basement story has been capped n ith
a vet y handsome course of white stone
from Kyune Price Canon Joists
fourleen inches wide have been placed
for the floor of the smaller rooms
while trusses twenty inches wide have
been used in the spans of about thirty
feet and over The building will be in
order in a few days when fifty men
will be started with nothing to retard
the work to the completion of the
The Central building opposite THE
DISIA TOIl block is the next largest
building and already its basement
walls are beginning to peep above the
ground TLe basement walls are
built of red sandstone brought from
Spanish Fork Canon As the west
front of this building is to be built of
this same stone the number of masons
already employed will be kept at work
besides an addition of about fifty
bricklayers and a number of carpen
ters who will commence operations
next week We will then see Provos
handsomest business block boom up
towards the clouds Ben R Eldredge
is building in conjunction with the
Central building a structure of the
same demensions so that the block
will be altogether about 100 feet
In the matter of residences Provo
again comes to the front as some of I
the houses being built are the pret
1 ttiest tit the country Richard Brereton
iSr erecting a brick resitlencesone
story and a half containing nine
rooms and fitted up with all the mod
ern improvements Just across the
street south Judge J D Jones is
building just such another building as
Mr Breretons with the exception
that it will have one room less
A W Pierce has the contract of
these last mentioned houses the cost
of each of which is about 82500 East
from Judge Jones Teddy Crane the
engineer of the Woolen Mills is build
ing a neat threeroomed brick house
James Snyder has the contract for the
E Lund the architect has a house
in course of erection on N street be
tween Eleventh and Twelfth the walls
of which will be of concrete It will
have about ten rooms and will cost
over 2000
The reporter made a call on Geo W
Mickel Co and from them learned
of a large number of contracts they
had for buildings and of which the
following is a list
Geo Gee a thirteenroomed brick
house on the corner of W and Ninth
streets to cost 2700 Mr Gees son
will build a few feet westa two
roomed brick house at a cost of 800
These two houses will be models of
modern excellence
Alex Iledquibt a fiveroomed brick
house in the Fourth Ward at a cost
of 1300 also a barn to cost 200
James Richardson a tworoomed
brick house in the Fourth Ward at a
cost of 700

four rooms Cost 1200
Steve Bee is building an eight

substantial residence in the city when
completed It will cost in the neighbor
hood of 2500
Gotlieb Klinger is building a two
roomed brick house in the Second
Ward at a cost of S700
Mickel Co are fmuring on six
other residences In addition to this
list there are a large number of struc
tures being built of which we have
mentioned from time to time such as
the Knudsen Bros two houses costing
about 1200 while there are others in
the Third Ward unmentioned
Anyone looking over this list can
see at a glance that there is a great
amount of money being expended at
the present time in building and this
is bound to circulate and so benefit
the town The season has opened up
fairly and there are many other build
ings to be starte before tall
