room , and the lady supposing that il
was the lodger did not trouble about
Long after midnight the genuine
ledger arrived and found the door oi
his room bolted , ft ot wishing to aroust
the lady ho lifted the sash of ono ol
the windows and crept into the room ,
when , to hia great surprise , he discov
ered a soldier peacefully reclining on
the bed , Ho at once demanded an
explanation , and the soldier not being
able to give any the old gentleman
took a big heavy cane and admiuis-
tared a terrible thrashing on the sol-

yard before the soldier could find n
moans of exit.
The gentleman sends a cordial invi

the Meeting- .
A special mcotins ; of the board o
trade waa hold on Saturday evening
Prosidant U. 0. Clark in tlio chair.
The president called the meeting t
order , and said that this meeting wa
called nt the BUgqeotion of Mayo
Boyd , for the purpose of hearing a :
address from Mr. A. L. "Barber , o
Washington , D. 0. , on. the nubjecb o
Mr , Barber delivered a very in
tercsting and exhaustive address 01
paving , from which wo glvo the fol
lowing extracts : Ho Enid that thi
subject of paving had been discussci
in all ages , and the worl <
had not yet conic to any decidei
conclusion on this f.sub , j.ect. Ho wa
not going to 'troubfb' them about thi
various kinds of pavements in use bu
would confine himself briefly to tin
history of his compressed couoreto as
phalt , which has been laid with grea
success and has been found to posses1
advantages ever all other forms o
There is in Switzerland , in the central
tral portion of Europe , a rock whicl
upon analysis is found to contaii
about 90 per cent of limestone or cor
bonato of limo impregnated with i
black natural substance called bitu
men and also called asphalt. Thai
rock'waa quarried as men quarry othei
kinds of stone and was laid on the
sidewalks and paths in Switzerland.
It was found that after the stone
was broken up and laid down on the
sidewalks , in the heat of summer and
under the effect oi the trafllc that wae
upon it , the fragments united and the
Vr'J'olo surface became aa ono sheet ,
the bitumen that was in it acting as a
moans of joining or cementing the
various particles cogothor. This sug
gested to a Frenchman that it might
bo introduced successfully in largo
cities , and in 1854 for the first time
some of that natural rnck was brought
to Paris and laid in small quantities
in ono of the streets there , with sucl
very satisfactory results that in tha
ind following years moro of it wua
laid , until there is in Paris to-day a
least 000,000 square yards of it laic
There are several kinds of asphal
in use , the Ncuchatol Val do Tra
rcrs nnd Seyssoll , which are namoc
iftcr the places which produces them.
The advantages nf this asphalt wai
luch in Paris that it was introduced
in London in 18G9 , About that time
ill ever this country there was a craze
) n the subject of concrete pavements ,
which lasted n year or two following
: ho panic.
There came ever in the latter par !
> f 18(50 n Bolqian , who was a
ihcmist in his nwn country and
yho had been in Paris at .the
iino this natural rock was used. He
ound that the cost of paving brought
nto New York would bo 5 per tent
, t the minor , $5 for transporting it to
? aris , and $15 for transporting it
rom Paris to Now York , or about
> 25 per ton delivered at Now York ,
nd a still higher figure if delivered
nto interior cities. This brought the
Srico of the foundation to about $4 ,
5 , or $0 a uquaro yard ,
lie went to work and devised some-
lung that would bo equal to it , and ,
f possible , superior , and the result
ras the concrete ho was advocating.
In 1870 for the first time this
sphalt waa introduced into the city
f Now York. Sample blocks were
lid m various parts of the city nnd
hey are there to-day and in good
hapo and in excellent condition con-
idoring the crude primitive methods
hey had , and the limited amount of
nowlodgo which are noccssary in all
uch businesses. Certificates have
eon given by all the principal express
Dinpaniea bearing testimony that the
avement ia in their opinion vastly
uporior to any other ,
u 1875 it was laid in Philadelphia
om Walnut to Ohesnut stiootH. this
avomont is there to-day and is cor-
. ( led to by citizens , and was describ-
i as "a most rom ark able picoo of
averaent" in a loading" editorial in
'he ' Philadelphia Lodgor.
Washington prior to the war was ,
possible in a worse state than Oma-
a to-day , both in mud iu wet woath-
r , and dust iu dry weather. About
tia time there was a great hue and
y to bring the capital from Wash-
igton to St. Louis. Wo have turn-
1 what waa the wont paved city in
the states , inlo your beat paved oil
in this country , end home go BO far t
to say in the world.
With regard to price this pavemcr
with sis inch hydraulic concrete fout
dation , including grading withou
curbing , ho figured at from $2.75 t
$3.00 per square yard. Probabl
$2.75 , possibly less. It must bo n
membured that when the foundatio
is once laid il will bo there for a

Sonio very interesting question
wcro then put to Mr. Barbpr , wh
answered them very Hatisfictorily.
Mr. E. Kosowatcr niado a few re
marks on the subject.
lie mentioned the fact that ho ha
scon asphalt in 1851 in Prague. Thi
waa laid on a flat foundation in fron
of the. depot. Ho was a schoolboy a
the time , and ho observed it witl
curiosity and thought it was a singl
rock , and ho wondered how a rock o
such great dimensions could Ifav
been brought there. Ho learnt after
wards that it was asphalt.
Ho had aeon the Washinstou pave
mouts. Ho always thought ttio on ! ;
difficulty will bo to got some ono to d <
it just right.
' In reply to enquiries respecting thi
alipperinoss of this asphalt , it was neat
at all slippery of itself. Of coursi
in winter time if there ia ice on thi
pavompnt it would be slippery , bu
then it is the ice and not the pave
ment which ia objectionable.
Ptfvomonts of Paris and Londot
cost $1 per yard , and they make con
tracts for 17 years. For the firs
three yeara there ia no charge for rewiring
wiring , for the remaining fourteen
pears the company charges an Englist
shilling or 25 cents per annum.
The following rcsulution was pro
posed by the secretary and carricc
nem. con. :
Resolved , That the information
given by Mr. Barber on the nsphall
pavement has boon very satisfactory
ind wo would recommend a commit'
: oo of five bo appointed to further in
vestigate the subject ho has intro
duced in roferpnco to this particulai
pavement , which we doom of vast im
portance to our city interests.
The meeting then adjourned sine
Mrs. Ira Mulholland , AUmny , N. Y. .

if little value in reaching ft decision

ho object of a board of survey is to
ocord the facts not only for its own
ise but for the information and guid-
nco of the commanding oflicer as well
a of the secretary of war ( see para-
raps 1410. 1411 and 141H of the

tigs may have been reviewed ,
The secretary of war desires that

other. The firafc of these was one
which happened at the headquarters
of the Linninger & Motcalf agricultu

brewery building , near the Willow-
Spring distillery. The proprietors

building , filling up what waa formerly
used as an ice house with debris ,
which was run into it from the bank
above through a long chute.
At the foot of this chute a
couple of bojs about 10 years
of ago wcro playinc. They wore Nola
Turtlcson and William Snyder , the
latter a son of Mr. William Snyder ,
who works in the blacksmith shop of
Simpson's carriage factory. These
boys had been around the premises
several times shooting at pigeons with
a sling shot. They had been ordered
away but persisted in coming around ,
and at the time of the accident young
Snyder was jumping from the chute
to the pile of rubbish which. drops
through from above. As ho was on
this dump -pile'a heavy load of
earth and rugs waa thrown - down

back of the head. The boy ran out
crying loudly and waa mot by a work-
tuan from the distillery , wh * saw that \

jwerod that the atone had fallen on his
