thoroughly screened and therefore free from dust. It gives most excellent results

OUR PAVING BRICK
are the best made in this section of the Union and are not surpassed by those
made anywhere. The use of Vitrified Paving Brick is rapidly increasing and
taking the place of Asphalt, Macadam, Belgium Blocks, etc. Thurber Brick
are used in Fort Worth, Dallas, Houston, Galveston, Beaumont and other
cities of the South.' Wherever used they are giving entire satisfaction. Vitrified
Brick Pavements are the best. The cost of maintenance is less than any other
pavement. They rank first in durability under traffic, freedom from decay,
freedom from dust, ease of traction, etc.
OUR BUILDING BRICK
are made from a carefully selected grade of shale and prepared with the most
improved machinery. The color is a beautiful cherry red. They are recog-
nized by Architects and Builders as the "Standard Brick," and are frequently
specified by them. We make face, ornamental and common building brick.
The following are a few of the buildings built with Thurber Brick: In Dallas,
the Wilson Building, Sanger Bros., Dallas Opera House, Mansur & Tebbetts,
etc. In Fort Worth, the Texas and Pacific Passenger and Freight Depots,
Carnegie Library, Pythian Temple, First National Bank, Swift & Co.'s Packing
House and many of the best buildings in other parts of the State.
