A Modern Barber Shob.
Bert Campbell, the pioneer
barber, is nothing if not progressive. First he opened his
■diop on the Esplanade, thru he
removed to Lonsdale avenue,
because his business demanded it.
Now, he has leased the premises,
just vacated by P, Burns St Company. This place bas been lilted
up in first-class shape, and bath
rooms and a bootblack stand installed. "Bert" takes a pride in
his work and always tries to please
his customers. The new place
will be named thc Board of Trade,

And then thou kemb'st the toggles on

Sunlight Soap is better than other soaps,
but is best when used in the Sunlight way.
To appreciate the simplicity and ease of
washing with Sunlight Soap in the Sunlight
way you should follow directions.
After rubbing on thc soap, roll up each
piece, immerse in the water, and go away.
Sunlight Soap
will do its work in thirty to sixty minutes.
Your clothes will be cleaner and wluicr than if washed
in the old-fashioned way with boiler and hard rubbing.
Equally good with hard or soft water.

AVork has been completed nt Ihe lower end of Broadway for lhe removing
of the Armor Belgian block pavement
and llie substitution of llie new wood
block surface, which is laid from tlie
Battery to Vesoy Btreet.
The   increasing   popularity   of   this
pavement Is due largely to lhe fact
that It Is noiseless under traffic. In this
respect It outdoes asphalt, which has
boon considered for ninny years Ideal
for use around hospitals and schools
' and oilier places where a quiet pave-
, ment was essential, In the ease of the
' wood  block  pavement the  nnise  of
'horses' hoofs, which make considerable
clatter on asphalt, is almost done away
Willi and the soft, hollow thuds which
are nil Hint can be heard ou the wood
nre rulher pleasant to lhe ear than
| Iu making use of this pavement under conditions of heavy trnfllo such ns
eilst on Broadway New York is following in tlm footsteps of the European capitals, which bave resorted to
this expedient to a grout extent during
the lust twenty years. All the principal aveuues ami boulevards of Paris,
a without oxcoptlon, nro paved with
wood. The same In Irue, to a slightly
less extent. In London, nnd iu hundreds
of smaller cities wood pavement is
ulso n favorite,
i Not only Broadway, but practically
tbe entire lower end of Manhattan
Island, will eventually be paved wilh
I w.nd blocks.   The blocks are treated
throughout to the heart with u mixture
of ei sue nnd rosin.
The grain of the wood affords nn excellent foothold for horses under every
other condition, and it hns been found
by trucking companies lhat drivers of
heavy loads prefer the wood paved
streets to those paved With sione or asphalt, as furnishing easier traction.
Another advantage of the wood pavement which will be appreciated In the
windy canyons of the otllco building
district Is Ibe fact Unit, unlike asphalt,
this pavement does nut breed dust.
When the work nrnv under contemplation In lower New York Is completed ihis city will become one of the best
paved municipalities in ibo world.—
