NEW YORK'S GROWTH.
The City 1 1 an Never Halted Since It Waa
First Fairly Started.
Ernest Ingersoll writes a paper on the
Greater New York, entitled "Reasoning
Out a Metropolis," for St. Nicholas.
Mr. Ingersoll says:
The people of New York, Brooklyn,
Staten lsiaua anu certain ueuruy uuxhj-
em towns resolved to join themselves
together into one city, which is now the
Greater New York. It embraces 341
,, a i.c o.
population of nearly 3,400,000.
Besides these at least another million
dwell on the New Jersey side of the
Hudson river, quite as near and as
closely identified with the great city on
Manhattan Island as are those of the
northern and eastern suburbs. This
makes a population of nearly 4,500,000
which may be said to belong to New
York, making it not only by far the
largest center of human life and inter
ests in America, but, excepting only
London, the most populous spot ou the
How has it happened that this vast
city has grown up where it stands?
Why did not the American metropolis
arise somewhere else? Is its position all
an accident, or does history show sound
reasons for its situation? The earliest
settlement here was merely a trading
Btatiou that gradually became a small
seaport, like a dozen others along the
coast. Before the year 1700 these were
so nearly alike that he would have been
a wise prophet who truly foretold which
would thrive. Indeed many men of that
day firmly believed that Newport and
Annapolis were to be the two great
Great cities arise at the points where
the greatest number of people find it
convenient to meet at nrst ior mismess
and later for pleasure. You cannot force
a city to grow in an unnatural or unsuit
able situation, and it is no easier to pre
vent a city from growing in its proper
place. But the conditions that change a
village into a big town and expand th
town into a city or metropolis are ul
the same in different parts of the globe
and vary with the march of the cen
turies; so that now many an ancient
world market, like Nineveh or Mem
phis, has totally disappeared, while
towns like Berlin have lately increased
with aruaziiig rapidity, after a long his
tory as small and insignificant places.
As for New York, it has never halted
or gone backward for a moment since
it was fairly started on its career in

The modern quick moving elevator,
when it sinks suddenly, gives many

Tntn a well filled elevator in a big shop

"Do you know," said one of them to
the other, "that if you hold your breath
going down in an elevator you don't
have that unpleasant feeling; you aon i
feel it at all
Of course nobody in the elevator lis

drew a Ions breath. The elevator snot

MAKING ARTIFICIAL ICE.
How the Plants Are Constructed and Op
erated In Philadelphia.
Artificial cold or ice may be most
readily produced by the evaporation of
a more or less volatile liquid. In the
first machines constructed this liquid
was water. One-tenth of the amount 01
water used was converted into ice, but
as it was necessary to maintain a vac
uum in the apparatus its perfect work
ins? was a difficult problem. A more
readily volatile liquid, therefore, had
to be substituted, sucli as liquenea sul
phurous acid and liquefied ammonia.
Being gaseous at ordinary temperatures,
they are very suitable sunstances ior
this purpose. The ammonia ice machine
is the one in most general use in fact,
it finds exclusive application in this
city. This liquefied ammonia is allowed
to expand in coils 01 pipes wnicn are
placed in tanks filled with brine. The
temperature of the brine is tnus reuucea
to a point below the freezing point of
water that is, to 14-18 degrees F.
Tn this refrigerated brine are piacea
galvanized iron tanks having the shape
of the large cakes of ice which one is
accustomed to eee in the wagons tnat
pass through our city streets. After a
period of 48-50 hours this can of water
is converted into 60iid ice. 'me can is
hoisted out of the brine, warmed with
hnt water, which allows the cake to
Blip out upon a shoot that runa into the
Btorage rooms. The gaseous ammonia
in the ninea can be used over and over
again, a large compression engine being
a part of the plant, wnicn reduces ma
expense of the process. From this de
scription it should be plain that there
can be no taint of ammonia to give a
facta tn the lee.
Tbe plants usually employ distilled
or artesian water, so that the ice is of
the best quality. Whatever impurities
tha water contains are collected in the
white streak found in the center of each
cake. The pure water separates irom
the impure and treezes nrsc r.veii
years ago the demand for ice was sup
plied from natural sources, me uax
vAKts from onr own Pennsylvania riv
era, which were stored every winter in
creat houses on the Bhores 01 tne streams,
beins supplemented by shipments
thrnnehont the summer from Maine.
There are now in Philadelphia 16 ice
making plants, some of which yield
over 100 tons perdayeacn, ana tne aru
facial product for several years has been
