of a cyclone and blew down 23 or 30

test of the fire-proof qualities of Mr. Mott's
roofing paint was made on Courthouse avenue
last evening, In the presence of ai largo num.
ber of 'spectators, and the ordeal satisfactorily
established all that was claimed for the paint;
A small house made of dry plno covered with
a thin coat of painty was placed under a pile
of shavings upon which six gallons of kero
sene oil was poured and Ignited. ) The! flames
leaped high Into the a?r and burned! furiously
for (forty minutes. Finally tho houso was
raked from tho debris and drenched with.'
kerosene oil, which burned off clean, leaving
the'wood unscorchedj as any ono may fee who
has the curiosity to call at tho Walthall hotel,
where It is on exhibition to-day. Tho object
of the test, which on account of the caution
of the authorities was not as severe as usual
wast not to prove the Impossibility of destroy

more valuable quality of tho paint 1.4 its ha
ptrviousness to water, inakbag it a euro rcmo

As a test of this, two paper boxes wero palted i
on the inside and kerosene oil poured Into ono
and water into the other without the slightest
effect upori tho paper. Tho boxes with their
