Rand one wi material dug from the ground and mixed with cement to make concrete. Now It In a high ly refined material that require tests lasting 28 days hefore It may he accepted for city or state con atructlon work. And It la to the credit of the Consolidated Materials' Corporation of the Teminal Buildings that In the last two yeara, while supplying mors than S.000 carloads of sand and gravel a year to contractors doing work under rigid supervision of specification material, the com pany has had not a ton of Its wares rejected. fliwclflcatlun Specialists The corporation deals almost ex. rluslvely In specification work, where the materials used In con struction muet come up to high standards to satisfy engineers. Be sides the high quality of Its goods, the company In servlr! to Its clients, offering quick dellv erles anywhere In the vicinity. Two distributing plants, one at Bernard In Pewey Avenue, and the other In Mount Hope Avenue, are used to enahle Immediate anawers to all orders. iNeany a months time la con sumed In testing the washed sand and gravel bought for municipal and slate construction nurnoses. Exhaustive examination Is msde of samples of the material and smsll hrlequets are made for various tests and left, to dry hefore broken open for various tests. Not, over 3 per cent, silt can be contained In the gravel, and at the producing elation 1,200 gallons of water a minute pour over the raw material. Abrasion must be kept under 10 per rent. Other tests designated by state engineers determine the organic composition of the sample, Its hardness, tensile strength under pressure and compressive strength to establish what force It will carry without break ing down. Besides this, another test determines the percental of losm contained In the material, and another how much the gravel "grades out" when It Is screened. Meaning System Complete Sand and gravel must be clean. that Is, free from all foreign sub stances, in order to make good concrete, and the Consolldsted Materials Corporation boasts of Its cleaning system whereby its prod ucts are washed clear from all vegetable or animal Impurities, even In small quantities. These Impuri ties, such as loam, dust, clay or any kind of oiganlc matter coat the sand particles so that the ce ment cannot stick to them, cannot oonrt as It should. The atrengih of the concrete depends upon the adhesion of the cement mixture to the clean surfsres of sound, hard particles or said or gravel. As the production plant at Max wells. IH miles from Rochester In the hcottsvllle Road, produces an average of 30 carloads of sand and gravel a day, only the moat complete equipment, modern method and machinery may be used. This particular gravel deposit, pronounced by engineers to be the finest In this part of the state, treated by advanced processes through a mammoth plant occupying part of the 130-acre tract, with approved washing, screening and crushing equipment. Insures quality materials, without which concrete that will not crumble, pit or crack cannot be made. Mashing by Pressure As the gravel travels on an end less belt conveyor It is Mist dumped Into the washer, wheie a poweiful m m ii stream or water removes the lighter oiganio materials and clay, and then is can led to ona of the huge storage bins. When or dered. the material Is taken from the stoiage, again on a belt conveyor, and feeds through a scrubber" revolving under a four-inch stream of water under high pres- a century In tha harness busi ness. Mr. Welder's belief that luck plays no part In buslnesa is prob ably controversial, but the fact does remain that after .V) years In business, the trsd of this harness dealer and manufacturer Is grow ing despite th fact that one doesn't see one horse to 1,00 motor cars In the street of this or most any other city In the country. Business Still Increasing Last, year, at the time that Mr. weiner wss last interviewed re garding the condition of his business, his harness business had increased 20 per cent, over that of 11)27, and he saw no reason to believe that the Increase wouldn't continue at about the same ratio. This success, therefore, would In dicate that Mr. Welder has brought to his business a great deal of sagacity, honest dealing and serv ice. In other words he la offering tha people who use horses what they want, and the people are buying from him. Born In this city Feb. 2fl, lfUSO, !:?" U 7 x-v J t7 i ""..

A few of Mr. Welder's oldtlme customers are still on his books, among them the F. A C. Crittenden Company, since 1 SOS ; Sam Oottry Carting Company, since 1R92; Big Kim Dairy Company, since 1910; Mr. Welder went to work for .1. C. Blsnchard Storage Company, since Hayrten Company, furniture 1912, and the Company, manufacturers, when he wss 12 years of age. After a few months he left the employment of the Hayden company to work for the Rochester I'nlon Advertiser Printing Company, and he helped In the printing of election ballnla for the Horace C.reely presidential campaign. He continued In the printing business until the Spring of 1S7S, when he hired out as an apprentice harness maker. Holds Oldtlme Customers On Jan. 20, 1870, he started his own business at South Avenue and Griffith Street, and In lt moved to South Avenue and Court. Street. In that year he opened his first hank account, making his deposits with the Traders National Bank, which was then located over the A. S. Mann Dry Goods store In tho Powers Building. Mr. Weider has conducted his business In Spring Street since ISttfl. Two years after moving to this street he patented a fire truck and ambulance collar for horses, which he manufactured and sold In this country, Canada, F.ngland Bartholomay Com pany, since 38fl2. Saw Business evolution Mr. Welder has sold the Bar tholomay Company close to $90,000 worth of merchandise during the last 37 years. In the days when this company wss operated as a brewery he was often paid by the Bartholomay Company as high as $,V)0 for a double harness. "Harness manufacturing has been revolutionized In the last 80 yeara from hand stitching to machine work," said Mr. Welder a few days ago, "The average day's hand stitching waa five heavy trares In ten hours. Today a mschlne and operator will stitch 75 traces in ten hours, end all other harness work has been Increased propor tionately.

It's the only key to the rsr we had, and I gotta have another to get the machine out of a parking inne. The speaker laid a small piece of metal on the counter of the E. C. Sykes A Company store at, 12 Front Street and glanced hopefully at Mr. Sykes, who picked up what had once been tha forepart of an automobile key and answered: "Sure, we can fix you up. Be ready In a half hour." "Say, that's great! Better fix me up a couple of 'em, so I won't get In this jam again right away. The Incident Is not fabricated, but took place at the Sykes counter last week, even to the customer ordering the extra key. And his pleasure was great, as he had but the shaft of the key, just reaching back to the rounded handle, and It seemed rather doubtful It could be duplicated easily. "That, job was nothing to some that they ask us to do," remarked the proprietor when his satisfied client departed. "Contrary to an Impression that somehow has gained wide credence, we can't make keys from an impression In wax or other soft material. We must have a. key to copy. But they bring us in everything but the door Itself and ask us to make keys. One person brought In the thin decorative plate that covers the lock and asked that a key be made from that. Ridiculous? Of course, but it happened. "That fellow that Just went out with the duplicate keys has learned a valuable lesson, and probably he'll be bark soon with keys he wants duplicated, to avoid the same trouble in other directions. An ex tra key means a lot sometimes, especially to motorists, as auto locks are made , not to be easily picked and the loss of a car door key can tie one up completely If he happens to he way out In the country, far rrom a locksmith. And trying a key that does not fit Is worse than going without, because a lock Is easily jammed and spoiled." K. C. Sykes A.
