The pall Is entirely in one piece and
without hoops, so it never leaks or fall,
to pieces, besides being lighter by far
than any other material from which
such vessels could be made. The pro
cess of their manufacture Is thus de
scribed: The wood, preferably spruce,
although any soft, fibrous wood will
answer, is first cleared of its bark and
cut to a length uniform with the grind
stone to lie used, generally sixteen to
twenty-four inches. It Is then plaeed
against the face of a rapidly revolving
grindstone, the grain of the wood be
ing in a line with or parallel with the
axis of the stone, and a hydraulic or
worm screw piston keeping the wood
constantly pressed against the stone.
The result which is washed off the
stone by a shower of water, after being
screened of slivers and sawdust ia a
milky-white liquid. With the water
suuieiently extracted this is the wood

The Streets of Paris.
From a report published in the
Xouvelles Annulet de. la Construction,
the total area of the streets of Paris.
measured between the kerbs, amounted
at the end of 18S6 to 8.617.100 square
metres (91.678,065 square feet). I
which 6,250,000 square metres are laid
in granite, 1,608.100 square metres
macadamized, 302,000 square metres
asphalted, and 355.000 square metres
provided with wood pavement The
cost last year for relaying and repairs
amounted to 11,000,000 francs (440.
000). To put all the streets of Paris
into thorough order would require
about 75,000,000 francs (3,000,000),
of which 15,000.000 francs wonld have
to be spent in changing macadamized
roads into pavement and 60,000,800
