The subject of my paper is the "Mixture of Concrete," a broad subject and one upon which much has been said and written. There is a strong difference in the treatment not only of the mixture but subsequent manipulation as between the so called wet or "slop" mixture of ordinary concrete construction and the dry mixture used in the manufacture of cement blocks, a phase of the subject little considered by writers, but of primal importance to those who are engaged in that pursuit.
