Wil ebieueiy be of such complex iiiteunei form es 'wii Seed of being euri/'ew Uner oidinzu" Condiuionsf. of use ii, found to be mineoesealy pi-oirie 9 on either of the vesieni sufi-fir* two ends of the paving Moeke b grooves S on the izugei Voiitimii e'nereof serve te form iecefaeee jacent paving *decke S which suitable material disposed therein Will adequately `serve to Obviously, paving blocks of the form of the paving blocks 5 of Figs. l and 2 can be manufactured more cheaply than the paving blocks 8 of Figs. 3 and 4 but the latter are a much superior product since the obliquely disposed grooves 9 serve better as a locking element in combination with gravel than do the grooves of the paving blocks 5. A pavementforrned of blocks as disclosed by the present application includes many advantageous features over wooden pavements previously patented as has been'proved by actual experience, the blocks in a pavement being subjected to changes in the degree of moisture, and it has been found that when so soaked with Water, that the blocks expand, causing the sharp ridges forming the divisions of the channels in the faces of the block to cut into the sides of the adjacent block'. It is to be noted that when the blocks y dry out and contract, the block adjacent t0 the sharp ridges re-assumes its plane surfaces, thus maintaining such point between adjacent blocks as will Akeep the blocks tightly in place. In fact, there is always a yielding tight joint'between adjacent blocks irrespective of any filling that may be introduced into the intervening spaces.

Manifestly, paving blocks embodying my invention may be made of other material for instance, concrete or a be made in the dimensions and arrangement v Copies ofthis patent may be obtained for five cents each, by addressing the.Commissioner of Patents Washington, I). C.

lock said blocks against- .relative vertical movements.

the bottom edge of parts of my invention without departing tending throughout said sides from bottom to i top, avhereby the opposite diagonal or crossing grooves filled in with concrete or plastic material will have an interlocking' action.

2. A wooden paving block having chosen vertical sides provided with a series of grooves of curved cross section extendin in parallelism with thegrain of the wood from to the top edge of said block, said grooves being disposed sothat the curved cross sectional lines of adjacent ones of said grooves shall intersect each other whereby' is provided a ridge whose apex is sharp and Whose base is of a width equal to the distance between the apexes of adjacent ones of said ridges.

3. A paving block formed of material capable of expansion and contraction having chosen portions of the outer sides pro- .vided with continuous depressions divided by sharpened ridges.

In Witness whereof7 I hereunto subscribe my naine this 27 th day of December, A. D., 1915.
