novacullte. About May 1, 1905, after
fifteen years of wear, repair of these
streets became necessary. The old sur
face waa first swept clean with a horse
sweeper so as to expose the solid pave
ment beneath. This waa done because
tar will not penetrate a road surface
which la covered with dust and loose
material. Next, the surface was loos
ened by means of spikes placed in 'the
wheels of a ten ton steam roller, the
street reshaped and new material add
ed where needed. The road was then
sprinkled, rolled, bonded and finished
to form a hard, compact, even surface
and allowed to dry thoroughly before
either tar or oil was applied, for nei
ther substance can penetrate a moist
road surface. The best results are ob
tained' when the work Is dene in hot,
dry weather, and accordingly the tar
waa first applied in August It may be
well to add that the novacullte need In
the construction of the roads Is an al
most nonabaorbent rock.
The tar used was a byproduct from
the manufacture of coke and waa prac
tically free from motatore. . It waa
brought to a temperature which gener
ally reached 210 degrees F., bat when
placed on the road It was reduced to a
temperature from 160 degrees to 100
degrees F. The hotteat tar produced
the beat results. It was spread with
Laborers, with street cleaners'
brooms of bamboo fiber, followed the
tank and swept the surplus tar ahead.
They spread It as evenly and quickly
aa possible and in a layer only thick
euough to cover the surface. One side
of the street was finished at a time
and barricades placed to keep off the
traffic until the tar had hud time to
soak into the surface. The time al
lowed for this process was varied
from a few hours to several days.
From the results obtained It can be
stated that under a hot sun, with the
road surface thoroughly compact, clean
and dry and with the tar heated al
most to the boiling point and applied
as described above, the road will ab
sorb pructlcally all of It In eight or ten
hours. A light coat of clean sand,
screenings or the clean particles swept
from the surface of the road may then
be spread as evenly as possible and
rolled In with a steam roller.
After more than seven months, In
eluding the winter season of 1U05-OC
the tarred streets and roods are still
In excellent condition. They are bard,
smooth and resemble asphalt, except
that they show a more gritty surface.
The tar forms a part of the surface
proper and Is In perfect bond with the
macadam. Sections cut from the
streets show that the tnr has penetrat
ed from one to two Inches, and the flno
black lines seen In the Interstices be
tween the Individual stones show that
the mechanical bond has been re-enforced
by the penetration of the tar.
The tar Is a matrix Into which the
stones of the surface are set, forming
a conglomerate or concrete. A second
coating applied a year after the first
would require much less tar than the
first, as the Interstices of the rock
would then be filled with tar. ,
A tarred street is dustlcsa in the
same sense that au asphalt street Is
dustless, though a fine sandy powder
wears off, as In the case of asphalt
It can l swept or washed clean. These
streets have aince been swept regularly
and the city government Is In favor of
treating all of the streets with tar.
The cleaning that would soon ruin an
ordinary macadam road does not in
jure the tarred surface, as the stones J
are not torn up or disturbed. The tar
Itself has antiseptic properties; hence
Its use would be beneficial both as S

THE' PUTTY W.ESTHOM
Up the Chimney is Where Half Your Fuel
Money Goes When the Ordinary Stove Is Used
Stove putty is universally used by stove manufacturers for making
tight joints in heating stoves. While the stove is brand new the putty
does the work asked of it. A hot fire for a few months cracks tha
putty, it drops out of place, leaving the stove full of air leaking cracks,
allowing the gases in the fuel and a big part of the heat generated to be
sucked up the chimney and thus wasted.
More than one-half of all the fuel you put into the putty jointed
stove is lost in this way. If your old stove eats up more fuel and does
not keep fire as well as it did at first, the reason is the stove putty has
dropped out ot the joints.
Coal Stoves and Air Tight Wood Stoves Save all
Fuel and Heat Wasted by Other Heating Stoves.
No stove putty is used in the construction of
these economical stoves; it is not necessary, owing
to the patented construction which makes the
stove practically joint leas. Cole's Hot Blast
Coal Stoves and Air-Tight Wood Stoves are the
only heating stoves in the world which are
guaranteed to remain always alr-tlght. On
account of the absolutely air-tight construction
of these patented Stoves, all asea in the fuel are
held back until they are consumed and both
gases and heat which escape up the chimney
with other stoves are thus saved to your profit
and comfort soft coal is half gas. As a result
of this saving the fire is never out and the
rooms are heated for two or three hours in the
morning with the fuel put in these wonderfully
i J economical Stoves the night before.
