Very Inexpensive , It is as Good as
Asphalt or Bettor.
Mayor Hn/.au has received n circular
concerning n now nnd improved system
of paving which is nt the same time
comparatively inexpensive. It is used
in the consular reports of the govern
ment of Ontario aud the paving material
IB known as tar-macadam. It is being
used very extensively In that section of
the country , nud is replacing many
other materials.
The tar-uiacndam is said to have two
advantages ever either asphalt or vltri-
Uod brick : the cost IB from ouo third
to one-half that of asphalt and it Ismoro
enduring than either. It is as noiseless
as asphalt , easier ou horses and almost
dustk'83. The paving for Norfolk avo-
uuo would bo paid for in ton yea s , and
the strain would bo unnoticed by prop
erty ewers , while the values would bo
greatly Increased.

aud after ho had mudo n clean get-away
from the police , who searched for him
in vain all of the night buforo , Roy O ,

Where ho had been or whether ho
had really boon outside of the city
limits at all , is not known * . Regardless
of his hiding plaoo , however , the follow
inada a mistake when ho tried to pass
Officer Pilgor last evening.
When ho was taken to the police
station , the tramp was found to carry
In every pocket some Bert of article that
must have boon stolen. Ho had n largo
variety of oyeghusos which ho hud
taken from the pharmacy of G. B.
Christoph , n bunch of poker chips thnt
had boon much used and n hypodermic
syringe with which his arm had boon
pricked into n porous lump thnt looks
like a shredded wheat biscuit.
The prisoner was taken before Justice
Elsoloy this morning , pleaded guilty to
the charge of petit larceny and was
given thirty dnys iu the county jail.
Ho was taken to Madison this afternoon
by Chief Knno.
Blanch stole razors and cutlery from
the hnrwaro establishment and various
articles from the drug store , afterward
selling thorn about town. Ho was lo
cated Thursday and evaded arrest.
The shop lifter is a morphine fiend of
the worst typo. The uilnuto ho wns
lauded behind the bars of his cage ,
ho began to beg for morphine. This
morning in court ho threatened , when
ho was sentenced , that ho "would go
cra/.y" If they locked him up. Ho was
looked up just the same but had to bo
given nn injection of his drug before
very long. Little , thiu aud hollow eyed ,
the morphine fiend looks like n klepto
maniac of the roughest kind , and the
police are happy ever the catch.

[ From Thursday's Dally ]
Rev. J. 0. S. Weills received from a
Boise newspaper a telegram this morn
ing stating that his daughter , Mrs
Donol , with the remains of her two lit
tie children , Katliriue and Weills Douel
would bo down from the mountains to
day. From the mesenge it is inferre
that during their camping trip in tli
mountains , the two little children wer
suddenly attacked with quick diphtho
riarud that even before they could b
returned to their homo the disease had
taken their young lives away. Every
circumstance of the sad affair seemed to
shape itself to render it all doubly hard
to boar. The father , Rev. Charles
Deuel , was in Chicago preparing a now
homo into which to bring his babies.
The camping trip was ono of outing and
pleasure rather than n place for sickness
and sorrow. And more than all , the
two going together , leaving the heart
broken little mother childless , besides
being so pitiful in itself , recalls a week
something over two years ago in this
city , when Mrs. Deuel , herself , lay at
the point of death and when , within six
days , she lost her mother , her sister and
her grandmother. Friends In Norfolk ,
of whom there are many , will extend
their universal and sincere sympathy at
this moment of Irreparable loss.
