far aa the experience of the city gees,almost
every street -that haa been paved with
brick Is a success, and half a dozen differ

block that was flrst put down en Hamilton
street, opposite the court house, was paved
with small, hard brick, and after aix years'
continuous wear, without having any
money expended upon It, It la as geed as
the day It was put down. The paving en
Franklin street shows no signs of wear
whatever. Although this consists of but
one layer of brick the atreet la in the very

SUPERIORITY or BRICK OVER OTHER MA
TERIALS FOB ROADWAYS.
The following information concerning
vitrified brick is taken from a namnlilet
issued by Secretary L. F. Andrews, of the
Iowa State Beard of Health, who has spent
considerable time In studying this subject
.from a sanitary point of view. He savs :
"Public attention Is turning te brick. It
Is de Innovation. In the Netherlands of
Europe highways liave been aeil with
brick for mere than half a century. In
West Virginia it lias been used fur mx teen
years in the city of Charleston. In Bloom
ington, III., it has been used fourteen years.
Decatur, III., has neirly all lier streets
paved with it. In Ohie it has been adepted
In several cities and Its mileage Is increased
Dr. James 12. Hoeves, tbe emtnent sani
tarian, and late president of the American
Public Health association and secretary of
the West Virginia Beaid of Health, writes:
"It affords me much pleasure) te bear
testimony te tbe superior quality of the
street paving which has been done in
Wheellng with vitrified blocks. Chap
Hue street the busiest street In tiie

since which time every possible
test has been made of the work. The line
of tbe horse-car track shows even te this

Cprnetband, of Reading; Liberty band, of

During Jho day the banda made the boau beau
tlful weeds ring with musle. Aud at one
tlme all played together. The mombers

Street Cars If nve Geed Ilualness.
The managers or the street car lines of
thia rltv have ceme te the ranplnnlnn that
Sunday Is a geed day te run cara. There are
hundreds or people In te7n who go out te
the cteek or ether points en Sunday, and
msnyofthem desire te ride ss far as they
can by cars. In fact It Is the only day
that many of thorn get an opportunity or
ildlng In the cars. Te accommedato theso
folks the company began running thelr
cars again yosterday. On Esst King street
the meter car; was run and it carried great
crowds of peeple all dsy and up te a late
hour last evening. Twe of the most
popular places about the city are Potts'
hotel at Wltmer's bridge and (IraefTs Land
Ing. At the former place the row beats
were all kept running during the day. At
GraefTs the llttle steam tug pulled the
gondola leaded with passongers about dur

made nnd In soma the time was of the best,
fhorew beats were all In use also.
A Blight In the Oats.
All around the Inquiry of " what Is the
matter with the growing eats?" is heard.
A ropresentatlvo of tbe Intixlieicnckh
drovethrouqh the middle and lower parts
of the county In which he saw only two
fields of eats that looked well. The balance
Is full of a dark red rust, and It seems te be
growing less In size all the tlme. Farmers
say that it Is full of a small grass fly or
louse, and tbat at the root they find a small
lnsect. Ne one seems te be able te tell the
exact cause or the blight, and it would be
well for some of our sclontllle men te leek
It up. As It new leeks tliere will be no

Is heard It Is about the same ever In Ches
