It has probably occurred to everybody In
New York City, at one meal time or an
other, that the 4,200,000 Inhabitant of the
city must consume a mountain of food
They do. They tat a whole battleship
Not actually one of L'ncle Sam's first-class
sea fighters, but Its value In bread and
butter and other food.
A few daya before Christmas the Rev.
Madison C. Peters of Epiphany Baptist
church announced to his congregation that
New Tork City's annual bill for bear, wines
and f pints amounted to $3tt,000,000.
Just one million dollars for every day in
The minister's figures were founded on
the latest available statistics of what New
York drinks, and they may be regarded as
fairly accurate, no matter how startling
New York, however, drinks other things
besides beer and wine. According to the
Year Book of the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture, each New Yorker
drinks on an average nine and one-quarter
gallons of coffee every year. This means
that about 113,93 pounds of coffee are
ground, boiled and consumed every day by
residents of the city. The actual quantity
used up in New York daily Is really much
greater than that, because allowance must
be made for the consumption In hotels,
where thousands of transient visitors are
We eat In one form on another about
4,000,000 strictly fresh eggs, fresh eggs and
Just eggs, every day. The United States
produces 10,000,000,000,000 eggs yearly, but
Greater New York does not get enough
of these to supply the local demand, so
Canada, Spain, Italy and even China have
to help us out. The Imported eggs amount
to 15,000.000 dozen yearly.
Notwithstanding the 14,078,29 pints of beer
consumed dally In the city. New Yorkers
alao manage to use up 345,000,000 gallons of
water, although, of course, not one-tenth
part of this Is used for drinking purposes.
With the advent of cooler weather house
holders are gradually cutting down their Ice
orders and reducing the consumption. But
the total average dally consumption of Ice
In New York Is 24,000 tons. Of this, the Ice
trust provides one-half and Independent
dealers the other half. Of the Independent
Ice, rather less than half Is artificial, while
thousands of tons to meet daily demand are
brought from up the Husdon and even
The supply of wheat required to sustain
the Inhabitants of the Borough of Man
hattan alone represents the product of a
well cultivated area many thousand times
the area of the island Itself. The people
of Manhattan consume more than 18,000,000
bushels of wheat a year, or almost 50,000
bushels a day. This is ground Into many
different forms of foods, but it by no means
represents the total consumption of foods
of that character.
Every twenty-four hours In New York
sees the consumption of 5,144,000 pounds of
flour, 200,000 pounds of yeast and 344,000
pounds of oatmeal and other cereal foods.
Dally Mountain of Meat.
The meat bill la pretty high, too. Here
are the figures of the total average daily
consumption of meat In the city: Beef,
7,428,000 pounds; mutton, 1,256,000 pounds;
lambs, 084,000 pounds; ham, 320.000 pounds;
pork, 512,000 pounds, and veal, 684,000 pounds.
This represents a large herd of cows, sheep
and pigs to bo slaughtered to supply New
York's dally demand for fresh and smoked
and preserved meats.
It should be understood, of course, that
the figures given for the beef, mutton and
other meat supplies are based on the actual
weight "on the hoof." Allowance must be
made for bones, suet and waste In deter
mining Ju.it how much of the enormous
meat supply is really eaten.
Reverting once more to the quantity of
liquors which New York drinks. It is in
tersstlng to note that In addition to 345,
000,000 gallons of water, 14.078.281 pints of
beer and 100,832 pints of wines and spirits
we also consume 1,256,000 quarts of milk
and 172.000 quarts of cream, irrespective of
hundreds of cans of the same In condensed.
powdered and tabloid forms.
We also manage to get away with an
average of 672,000 pints of ice-cream In the
course of every twenty-four hours.
Of chickens, geese, ducks, squab, turkeys
and fowl, generally Included under the
heading of game and poultry, a total of
3.428,000 pounds are required to meet New
York City's dally demand.
Our bill of fare for one day also Includes
1,400.000 pounds of potatoes, 2S4.000 pounds
of tongue. 4.2U0.0Q0 pounds of cabbages,
beans and other vegetables, 1,872,000 heads
of lettuce, 5.0u6.000 pounds of fresh and pre
served fruits, 24,000 casks of oysters, clams
and mussels, and 972.000 pounds of fresh.
dried and Imported fish.
Vast Importations of Vegetables
Nobody will dare to deny when confronted
with these statistics that New York lives
We import millions of dollars worth of
vegetables every day. Every day hun
dreds of barrels of potato, s arrive on
steamships from abroad. Many of these
come from Scotland, but they are not con
sidered of as good quality as the home
grown article. Bermuda and the West
Indies send us very early potatoes. Many
squashes come from the Sandwich Islands.
Large quantities of lentils and Brussels
sprouts come in from Oormany.
Almost every vessel arriving from Algiers
bring us artichokes. The best frogs come
from Ontario, Canada, and so do the
choicest sheep found In the New York mar
We get large quantities of cheese, crack
ers, pickles, preserves and potted foods of
every kind from abroad. The West Indies
send vast shipments of early vegetablea aa
well as frulta
The enormous amount of vegetablea un

hot houses supply us with the choicest of
our lettuce, carrots, egg plants and rad
ishes. Without being aware of the fact, the
average resident of New York City often
sits down to a meal that has been gathered
for him from practically all over the world.
In connection with what New York eats
and drinks It Is also interesting to con
sider what New York wastes.
It has been estimated that the total
amount of food actually allowed to go to
waste by the 4,000,000 Inhabitants of this
city during the last year would have been
sufficient to support a city of 00,000 people
for one whole year without working.
In every household doxens of slices, half
slices and perhaps only crusts of good
bread are allowed to go to waste every
week. Most of It Is considered too stale to
eat, and the housewife Is net satisfied to
use it up for her bread puddings.
Adding to the bread wasted tho many
pounds of flour that have been wasted, too,
the total for one year in New York City
would reach millions of one-pound loavej
A great deal of water Is wasted In New
York every day. The statistics of the water
department show that during 1905 there was
an estimated waste of 456.255 tons of water.
You could float twenty first-class battle
ships In a body of water of that else.
EoorniODi Waste of Vegetables.
Probably there Is more waste in potatoes
than any other article of food. By the
time the peeling has been removed and
the eyes have been gouged out, the potato
Is not much more than half as big as it
originally was. Then, after the potatoes
have been cooked and served there is still
further, waste which the garbage can
claims. An estimated total of 12,000 pota
toes are wasted In the city every day, or
nearly four and one-half millions every
In spite of the recent great scarcity of Ice
a considerable quantity of this necessary
household article was wasted. This was
due to defective refrigerators and the neg
lect to take proper care that the Ice did not
melt faster than It ought to. During the
past year probably 91,250 tons of Ice were
wasted In New York. This Is sufficient to
form one huge block large enough to con
tain the postofflce building at Park row
New Yorker's use a great deal of tobac?o
and they waste almost as much as they
use. About ten tons of tobacco are wasted
every day In this city. This would be
enough In one year to fill the bowl of a
pipe as big ns the Flatlron building.
Rise In Cost of Living.
The principal reason why it costs $4,000
a day to supply the inhabitants and hotel
guests of greater New York with food and
drink is because the price of foodstuffs has
greatly increased. The following table
shows how wholesale prices on many staple
products have Increased during the past ten
