and keeps oh drinking, Tn r nch to bis •discomfort and little to.lils relief. He has an idea that acid drinks are cooling, and goes into » well-known place where temperance drinks only are supplied. There he asksfor lactart, acid pnosphate, orangeade, or lemonade, and, while he is given a certain amount of the acid, it is smothered in syrup; and it is so with all drinks taken from the soda fountain, saye~the plain soda water itself, which is one of the best beverages extant to quench thirst This leads to the consideration oi the soda fountain itself, so called, and the agency it now has in furnishing summer drinks. The so-called soda •water is not soda water at all, but water impregnated with carbonic acid gas, deriving its name, however, from the fact that when it was first made carbonate of soda was used to obtain the carbonic aoid. Now, carbonate of lime or marble dust is used, and carbonic acid is liberated from it by tbe agency of sulphuric acid, which, having a -greater affinity for the lime, seizes it, freeing the gas find forming sulphate of lime. The water impregnated by this gas Is no more a soda water than it ia * lime water. It is neither, in fact, but a carbonic acid water, if it is anything* The gas is produced in a strong vessel, and transmitted by pipes into the retorts containing the water to be impregnated under a presure of about 200 pounds to the'square inch. -" A retort will hold about fifteen gallons
