A New" Building Material
So many uses nro found for con-
crete In bulhllng operations 'that new
applications of this material in order
to secure permanence and economy of
construction are being constantly re-
corded". One of the latest Is from Liv-
erpool where dwellings made of con-
crete nro being erected by the corpo-
ration for the artisan classes the idea
being that the cost of erection can be
reduced to" a i)o!nt that will enable
rooms to bo renleTl for a shilling a
The material used consists of con-
crete blocks formed from waste
crushed clinker obtained from the city
refuse destructor plant which ordi-
narily is employed in making concrete
slabs for crosswalks and in pavement
foundations. The structure of these
slab or concrete dwellings Is rein-
forced by steel framing and they ap-
pear eminently strong and durable.
The cost of brick dwellings recently
erected in Liverpool was in one case
about $17000 and in another plant
about $11000 for a block while the
estimated cost qf a concrete block
was but ?G000. In the actual erection
however there was required "a new
and necessary plant which brought
the cost to over $20000 but the actuul
amount involved In the building was
but $15000. The engineer in charge
Is confident that with further experi-
ence the new nfethod will bo found
most economical and desires to erect
live additional blocks. - If dwellings
for the masses can bo provided at a
substantial reduction on present costs
the use of concrete Is bound to have
an Important influence on sociological
conditions. Harper's Weekly.
Comparison Mde By Lincoln ."
When Lincoln was practicing at the
bar the opposing lawyer in a certain
case had delivered a speech for the
prosecution whioh was conspicuous
for its exhibition of the man's conceit.
When he was through Lincoln who
was attorney for the defense rose
slowly to his feetand with that quiel
dignity and droll wit; for -.which he was
sonotGd addressed the court as 'fol-
lows: "Your Honor my colleague who
has just delivered this brilliant exhi-
bition of oratory reminds me of "a lit-
tld flat-bottom steamboat that way
back In -the T)ds used to -ply up and
down the Mississippi. It had a five-
foot boilor and an eleven-foot whistle
nnd every time it whistled it stopped."

Insist on Getting It.
Some grocers trny they don't keep
Duflunce Starch. This is because they
have a stock on hand of other brands
containing only 12 oz In a package
which they .won't be uble to sell first
because Defiance contains 16 oz. for
the same money. .
Do you want 10 oz. Instead of 12 oz
for same money? Then buy Defiance
Starch. Requires no cooking.
