municipal authorities is the question occupies a considerable part of the public mind In New York phalt has had the preference of late but it has so many disadvan ages in wet weather and in winter that the advent of another and better is joyfully hailed In thus part of Yonkers at Park Hill Station there has just been laid the sample of bituminous macadam around New York representative of the New York Tribune paid a visit to Park Hill the other day and this is what he saw For about two city blocks the pavement has boon laid The grade of the streets ranges from six to 12 per cent none of it level course there has been no chance tell what the result will be In other cities and towns throughout the country however it has stood the severe tests of heavy traffic and extreme temperature changes The foundation for this constructed on the snme as that of a macadam road that broken stone of assorted sizes spread over a carefully prepared and rolled subgrade and rolled with a road roller After this broken stone had been thoroughly pressed and treaded together in this manner it was covered with a thin bituminous compound which is liquid to adhere to the prepare it for the reception of a thicker bituminous cement which was then placed upon it in a thick coatto the entire surface On the foundation thus prepared was placed the wearing surface of all sizes of selected stones varying from iys inches in its largest dimension to an impalpable powder so regulated as to fill every void or iu terstice This graded stone is me chanically mixed with a sufficient bituminous cement to thoroughly coat every particle so that no unit of the mineral remains without a suitable coat of bituminous paint or cement This was then spread and raked hot on the street about 2 inches thick the neat of this mixture being suffi ciently great to melt the bituminous cement on the foundation and unite the whole pavement a homogeneous mass This was then rolled and compressed until thoroughly solid During this rolling the surface was thoroughly covered with a thin coating of very adhesive quickdrying bituminous which filled any irregularity or crevice in the surface of the On this surface was sprinkled hot stone graded in size from onehalf to onequarter of an inch pad rolled until it is united with the mass This gives an absolutely nonslippery surface presenting to the eye the same smooth top as a wellfinished macadam road but ing the inherent advantage over a macadam roadway of being united from top to bottom Weather and traffic conditions are unable to ravel out or break up tho surface thus united with the bitumin ous cement Owing to the gritty nature of surface slipping of horses or the wheels of rapidly driven automobiles is rendered impossible Because of the fact that the bituminous cement used in the composition of this is absolutely indestructible in water there can be no entry of this element which is so destructive to the life of other pavements There is then a union of all the good qualities of a monolithic pavement without the disadvantages and bad smooth surface by water and absolutely non slippery STRONG LIFTING FRAME Little Contrivance Which Will Be

Some Excitement I had been keeping bachelors hall while my wife was away sadly the man whose wife had been in the country Of course it was generally late when I turned in at night and as we had been a good deal worried by sneak thieves in my part of the city I was afraid they might make a raid during my So I set my wits to work First I rented a phonograph with a megaphone attachment Then I got a huskyvoiced friend to talk into the machine His talk which was de livered at the top of his voice was mostly about calling the police bay fog the drop on some one firing a ppd other conversation cal culated to snake burglar think he had gone against the game After I had the phonograph nicp ly loaded I made a test of it Im free to confess that a burglar who heard it would be worse frightened than it he stumbled on to a reserve quad of poHcpmen I put the loaded phonograph in our flat and connected it strings anti wires so that if any who didnt know just how to work the combination tried to force any of the doors he would start the machine on its Jipe of strongarm Conversation J figured that no burglar would wait to see what the man with the husky voice would actually do No tbaj burglar would have immediate business in the street Our apartments were safe and I felt of my little contrivanceMaybe or more burglars went pgainst my photograph protection game if they did they fled without leaving any traces But in about a week my wife decided to return awl to bring her mother with her She didnt intend to reach the city until Jate in the evening so sent me a telegram addressed to our npartments instead of at my office Of course fate willed it that I should dine at a restaurant and go from there to the theater not reach ing home until late In the meantime my wife arrived at the station There was no one to meet her but as she bad hpr key and thought the telegram had missed me that didnt worry her much Accompanied by her mother she went home in a cab took out her key and started to enter pur apartments Right at this point the large quantities broke out key didnt work very well pnd she must have given the door a little shakp That started the load ed burglarportection

atmosphere in the household THE TORPEDO FISH There Are Four Groups of Them That Caa Give Forth Electrical 1 Shocks Lecturing at Leicester England Dr F Gotch a professor of Oxford university dwelt upon the sub ject of electrical fish and pointed out that no such fish existed in English rivers They were comparatively rare objects he said and were possessed of singular interest There were at least four groups of electrical fish in which an extraordinary organ had been developed says the Fishing Ga zette Some of these fish could give shocks strong enough to knock a man down and if the current they were capable of generating could be main tained it would be sufficient to light a whole town The electrical eel and the torpedo fish were alluded to as species possessing this remarkable phenomenon The lecturer described the electrical organ found in the tail of the common skate Physiologists he said had been dissecting this fish for years but had generally passed over the tail as an object unworthy of study It is here however that the interesting structure is situated im mediately below the skin It consists of a whole series of columns which have taken the place of muscles These columns contain translucent material and in the fresh state are most beauti ful objects The columns are crossed by lines which divide them into corn partments like a railway train the compartments including a most won derful arrangement of nerves The electric discharge occurs as the result of a nervous impulse communicated by the fish to the nerve ends causing an electrical charge An electrical organ may include as many as 2000000 of these compartments- The lecturer continuing said that a formidable species of electric fish which inhabits the rivers of North Af rica including the to the genus gymnotus and is capable of a very powerful shock An easily recognizable picture of this fish has been discovered in an ancient Egyptian tomb These electric organs were the most remarkable examples of mechanism known to exist They had been developed as a of defense the consideration for the main tdiance of any species and also as a Beans of Mteh Girls Fight B H if becoming quite usual
