PRICE THREE CENTS.
The fermentative days have come;
All nature out of gear;
Blows and commotions everywhere,
'Tis cheerless, chill and drear.
We call it spring! What's in a name?
Sage Shakespeare could not tell.
A blizzard blowing llend doth reign:
This fact we know full well.
Pisplacer of stern winter's rule,
Routing the snow and ice,
Both using and abusing them
With devilish device.
And should they chance to disappear
In vernal, warming thaws,
Presto ! he calls them back, nor deigns
A reason or a cause.
The terror of the vernal year,
Is this destructive king,
Who giveth winds high carnival,
And makes a jest of spring.
Yet out of chaos order comes ;
No change occurs in vain,
And gentler April's fitful moods
Tliough born in throes of pain ;
Give birth in turn to genial May,
Bright laughing happy May,
Wherein the resurrected earth
Her mysteries display.
As harrow to unyielding soil,
As leaven unto bread,
So is this fermentative month
Which 1111s the world witli dread.
Anna Hubbard Mekcuk.
ICE AND COLD STORAGE.
A Fine Large 11 mil Now lleing Operated
in Our Village.
The cold storage and ice making plant
that has been in course of construction
in the village during the winter was com
pleted last Wednesday, when it was
started up, and is now running in good
order. The machinery of the plant is
located in the basement of the Depart
ment Store and consists of a Penney
improved horizontal, double acting am
monia compressor with 6 1-2 inch bore
and 12 inch stroke, driven by a twenty
live horse power electric motor; an am
monia condenser tank, six feet high and
four feet in diameter, containing about
700 hundred feet of extra heavy one-inch
pipe in coils, which are kept full of cool
running water while in operation; also
an ice making tank with a capacity of
500 to 1000 lbs. of ice per day, in 75-lb.
The refrigeration is by direct expansion
of the ammonia in the different cold
storage rooms. There are twelve of
these rooms located in different parts of
the village. The Department Store has
live, which in all contain over 1500 cubic
feet of space. The Holly Inn has three,
aggregating nearly 1000 cubic feet; the
Carolina three containing nearly 1200
cubic feet; and the Berkshire one, of a
little over 100 cubic feet, making a total
for the village of nearly 4000 cubic feet
of refrigerating space.
These refrigerating rooms at the sev
eral hotels are connected witli the
machinery in the basement of the store
by ammonia distributing mains of extra
strong pipe, about 5000 feet of whicli is
required for this alone.
The machine is charged with 400 lbs.
of ammonia which is introduced into the
evaporating coils in liquid form, where a
pressure of less than fifteen pounds is
maintained. It boils at a very low tem
peraturefrom 28 below to 15 above
absorbing the heat from the refrigerating
rooms and passing to a gaseous form.
It is then conveyed to the compressor
where it is given a pressure of 150 to 200
lbs. per square inch and forced into the
condenser, when by the action of cold
water and the above pressure it returns
to a liquid form and is ready to use again.
The machine has a capacity of ten tons
refrigeration in twenty-four hours, or
equal to the meltage of ten tons of ice in
The refrigerating rooms are so ar
ranged that they may be run collectively,
or independently at different tempera-
But few places of many times the size
of Pinehurst can boast of such excellent
cold storage facilities. While the plant
is a very expensive one, It is another
example of the policy of the manage
ment of the village, which spares no
trouble and expense to promote the com
fort and well-being of our residents.
The machinery connected with the
plant is from the factory of the New
burgh Ice Machine and Engine Co., at
Newburgh, N. Y., and the plant was
installed here under the supervision of
Mr. J. L. Adams of Newburgh, N. V.
Last Friday was the anniversary of the
birth of Mr. W. A. WTarden of Worcester,
Mass., who is spending the winter with
his family at Hawthorne cottage, and
his many friends in the village deter-
We hope but half your race is run
Just forty-eight before you're done
Till you reach the river Jordan.
Too much to ask of cruel Fate,
Another lease of forty -eight?
No, there's naught too good for 'Warden.
Walter II. Parcels.
Yes, March Is here, the second, too,
And now you see the reason,
Your host of friends in Pinehurst through
Rejoice with you this season.
Sarah L. Daniels.
On March second Mr. Warden of Worcester town
Adds another star to his Mustr'ous crown
At Pinehurst village In old N. C,
The "bestest" place that he could be.
It's cold sometimes then hot, you bet!
Rut what's the dif, Mr. Warden don't fret.
He's passed Just enough of life this way
To demonstrate that fretting don't pay.
Long may he live and a lot of birthdays spend
At the Casino, where every guest's his friend,
He doesn't tell us how many he'6 passed,
Only that he enjoyed the last.
We wish him joy through the rest of life
On his own account, as well for his good wife.
So here's "good luck" and many a pleasure
With every winter hereafter spent In Pinehurst

tures, from 40 to 15 degrees Fahrenheit.
Thus the several rooms in the hotels and
store may be kept at different tempera
tures for the different articles to be kept
In the store three of the refrigerating
rooms are located on the first floor at the
rear of the grocery department. One of
these rooms will be used for meats and
other articles requiring a very low tem
perature. Another compartment will be
used for butter, cheese and eggs, which
require a little higher temperature, and
the other room will contain the fish, etc.
All the rooms on this floor will contain
one day's supply only. In the basement
are the two rooms for the reserve stock.
In these rooms meats, flsli and other
perishable articles can be kept indefinite
ly, and a big stock will be kept constantly
on hand. With these cold storage rooms
it will now be possible to provide first
class meats and fish at all times, regard
less of the weather, and to keep enough

mined to make the day one to be pleas
antly remembered by all. Preparations
were accordingly made for a happy
surprise, and when Mr. Warden advanced
to his seat in the Casino at supper he
found his chair tastefully decorated and
on his plate a beautiful birthday cake
adorned with candles.
A pleasing gift was a birthday book of
choice poems containing the autographs
and bits of sentiment from numerous
friends in the village. After supper the
party gathered in the Casino parlor and
read the many friendly expressions con
tained in this volume, a fevy of which
Thy natal sign is Pisces and It shows
A nature unadapted for repose.
If read aright, thou dearly lovest change
With information of extensive range.
We wish thee happiest returns today,
May flowers of friendship brighten all life's way
Anna Hubbard Mercur.
Yes, "time and tide for no man wait,"
You've watched the years till forty-eight
Are gone, and numbered with the past.
We wonder what is the decree?
How many more remain for thee
To live before you reach the lust?
Our friend, Mr. Warden from over the way,
They tell me is just forty eight today.
Should his eyes ever wander over these lines
May he think of "The Magnolia" in the pines.
Please remember Mr. Balch and wife at croquet,
Misses Curtis and Fiske (who at other games
Mrs. Smith you'll recall, who the bean bags did
For the whist at the hall when they served cream
Mr. Curtis and wife of Montreal City,
To forget them would be a great pity.
Mrs. Plum the poetess, and Black the young man
You'll think of these two whenever you can.
Now, we all extend to you and your wife
Our best wishes for a long happy life.
And remember at Pinehurst we met;
And many birthday gifts may you get.
An amusing feature of the occasion was
a cartoon by Mr. Pringle, representing
Mr. Warden ami the other judges at the
colored baby show held in the Village
Hall a few weeks ago.
The whole celebration was well planned
and carried out, and will long be pleas
antly remembered by all who were present.
Trip 1o Thagards.
Last Monday a party of the Berkshire
guests had a picnic at Thagards Mills,
going over in the three-seated excursion
wagon. The day was beautiful and all
enjoyed rambling in the grove of grand
old pines and about the shores of the
beautiful little lake. The road to Thag
ards runs through an interesting country
and trips to this place are very popular
with our villagers. Included in the
party were S. II. Goodwin and wife of
Oneida, N. Y., Mrs, Eustice Cummings
and Miss Ethel Cummings of Woburn,
Mass., and Mrs. F. W. Jenkins of Cam
bridge, Mass. A number of other guests
at the Berkshire are planning trips to the
numerous places of interest near the
