BRICK PAVEMENTS AS AN INVESTMENT American City Magazine:--I recently observed the revenue from two separate farms of 320 acres each, located in the corn belt of Illinois; one at the end of a f o u r mile brick paved road, the other at the end of a. four mile mud road. These f a r m s should produce under the o r d i n a r y rotation of crops a n n u a l l y ?sf* tons of corn, S* t o n s of oats, and 120 tons of hay, or 480 tons in the a g g r e g a t e to be delivered over four miles of roadway. On the brick road there have l i v e r e d eU-ven tons of grain in one trip by one team, using five wagons, while on the e a r t h road two tons were all t h a t could be delivered by a similar tenni. The h a u l being f o u r miles in both cases, and as they could make t h r e e trips a d a y , t w e n t y - f o u r miles' team travel, the team on the earth road could deliver six tons per day at a cost for team and wagon of $4.50, t h u s m a k i n g a cost of seventy-five cents per ton for the f o u r mile haul. On the brk-k road the delivery was t h i r t y - t h r e e tons per day at* a cost of 1!." r e n t s per ton on a f o u r mile haul-a difference of fi,ty-five cents per ton in the co^t of d e l i v e r y in favor of the brick road, or a d i f f e r e n c e In cost of $::fi4 on the 4SO tons delivered. This is only a small per cent, of the a c t u a l loss to the f a r m e r living 1 on the earth road, as he had to sell his g r a i n at a time w h e n the roads were in such condition that it could be deliver- GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK.

From a c t u a l experience it ha? been demonstrated that this would represent a loss of $1-50 per ton on corn, $2.50 per ton on oats, and $5 per ton on his hay, making a loss in the aggregate of $920 on account of not belns able to deliver at the best market price. This, with the loss In cost of delivering, makes $1,184 or 10 per cent, on an investment of $11,840, an increase in value of $36 per acre on his 320 acre farm. This represents the investment In a. nine foot brick highway that has cost the taxpayers of the township $10,000 per mile, or if all of the principal highways of the t o w n s h i p could be improved, would represent a tax on all of the property of only J10 per acre. FREE TREES IN DENVER American City Magazine.--Free dist r i b u t i o n of trees to property owners in Denver has become a yearly f e a t u r e of the city's activity. This year, however, the giving away of 9,000 trees amons; 2,500 taxpayers was of p a r t i c u l a r i n - terest, owing to tho greater- e f f i c i e n c y w i t h which the donating was conducted. Experience has shown that practically 50 per cent of the trees delivered in past years either were never planted or were so mistreated befora planting that it was almost an impossibility for them to grow. Instead, therefore, of issuing cards and delivering trees to applicants in person, the city this year required those interested to leave their names and addresses with the Commissioner of Property, who was then able to ascertain at first hand how many trees could be used to advantage by such applicants. Elm trees to the number of 5,500, and 3,600 maples were then delivered by the city and properly healed in so as to protect the roots and enable the recipients to plant them at leisure at any tinie during the ensuing two or three days, Arrangements have also been made to keep track of the trees and see that all are properly cared for. Those who, through no fault of their own, lost any number of trees, or who failed to make application this year before all trees were alloted, will be given preference at nest year's distribution. The cost of thie municipal generosity ia d e f r a y e d out of the amount received each year from the Denver City Tramway company, which, amount must bylaw be expended in improving streets, boulevards and parkways. Much value has been added to the tree-planting activity by a campaign conducted simultaneously through "The City of Denver," official organ of the city, giving a d d i t i o n a l instruction w i t h regard to p l a n t i n g and caring for the trees.
