HOLLY STEAM COMBINATION COMPANY, OF LOCKPORT-THE NEW SYSTEM IN PJtAC- TICAL OPERA TIONITS DKSCRIPTION. 1 . j On ursday last !Thb Express gave an acH count of ;the method which our fellow-citizen Jacob Schen.1 4sq.i had adopted for heating his residence! by Steara conveyed a distance of one thousand feel! underground, his experiment being based upon the system originated by Mr.! Birdsill Holly, of Loci port. N.IY. i The account was read with muph terest, 'which was not lessened by the fact that hei tofore the ooe rat ions of the Hollv Heatin? Comnan' have been conducted jarith such secrecy as ta have entirely prevented any public statement of their pro-j gress and results. This course, however, as will appear1, lias been necessary on account of the exi penmen ial nature and importance of the undertak-l ing,which now promises, to revolutionize to a great extetit the present system of domestic economy. 1 1 For the purpose of more fully investigating the subject, k representative of i The Express yesterU day visited Lockport, And the result of his inquiries is embodied in -the following statement! Birdsill Holly, Esq., of Lockport, N. Y., is the originator of the new system of conveying steam for heating purposes by means of 'pipes laid for long distances under ground, in the month of May, 1876 hi put hii. 'ideas into an experimentally practical shape by placing a small steam boiler in his yard and com necting 500 feet of underground pipe. The result satisfied-him that the plan was entirely feasible, j. In the I month ' of January, 1877, a stock company! with a cfipital of $25,600, was formed to test the plan upon a larger scale, under tne. title Qt " the Holly f Steam ' Combination Company, limited, f The present officers of the company are: I Presidont David F. Bishop, M. 0. Vice President Samuel Roger, j: j , . Secretary Francis N. Trevor, h.i , ' Treasurer Isaac H. Babcock. II . Superintending Engineer Birdsill Holly. I Together with a board of seven directors. . A brick bailer-house was erected on Elm street and a horizontal boiler, sixteen feet long, and five feet in diameter was placed , in : position, and a line of three-inch wrought iron pipe was laid three feet under ground for the distance of half a' mile, ii This line wall purposely laid in the sparsely settled pon-tions of the. city, for) the purpose of testing, th power of steam without ' interruption. Junction service pipes were placed in! the main pipe of. intervals of from one hundred to two hundred feeti and at these points and at the terminus of the line, tesjts were made to determine the amount of condensation, 1 the power: of the steam, and the requisiti sizes of pipe. The results from the half mile " off pipe were so satisfactory tlfat additional piping was laid, making a total distance of a mile and a third, the size of - pipe being modified as fob-lows: Four-inch pipe was used for the first four hundred) feet; three-inch pipe for the next sixteen hundred feet; two-and-one-half-inch for the! nexk six hundred feet, and two-inch for . the rest of the : linel In this distance were eight right angles! at comers of streets. and ten valves in the main Dine. , FosKthe first mile the grade descended next 1 Quarter of a mile it as .twenty, jfeet; for Ithe cended seventy-two feet, and for the rest of the disl tance it descended forty feet. It was found that dVi. pressure! of forty pounds of steam delivered to thi service pipe at the boiler-house, a pressure of thirty two pounds of steam Was perceptible at the end o the lini Showing a loss from! friction and. condensa tion of but eight pounds. I In all this line, there were nginu m receive : cuiiuciibuiiun, tuus . 9DVI' ating one objection which had been strongly , nrgedi Twenty dwellings -scattered on ( the line Were con. nected With the mncfion service pipes, and the test proved 'the entrtofeasibility of the system for a! disL -f.i I v-l :i ' .i j : i 11 iv. k vi ifwu aiiu vnc-iiiui mues Muarc witn uie sizes of pipe jsed, the extent of j territory to be heated depending upon the size of pipe used. : It was found that pipd could be economically laid as follows: I M inch pipe for 1,000 feet; 3-inch for 3,000 ,feet 6-inch for 0,000 feet, and 13-inch for 18,000 feet. . One poiler with a bjower is sufficient for the work reauiredi but two additional boilers have beer! placed ia the boiler-house, for alternate use, and to guard against accidents. 1 o attend the furnace and boiler, one man for the day and another for the nieht are sufficient.. During the months of October and November, 1877,' two miles of additional mainj were laid. - " 1 . J I ' ; 11 ' The narrow trenches to receive the pipe are dug about three feet deep,. so as to be above all gas and and water pipes. In the bottom' of the 1 trench a .drain of two-inch, tile is placed, to receive' such moisture as might accumulate from airy source; the tile are furrounded with broken stone over which the steam mains are laid upon a strip of board. The mainjs sjre made of Wrought iron similar to gait pipef, covered witn I asbestos and hair teltingj and placed inside of wooden pipes bored out lengthways, the wooden tubes being from two inches io four) inches thick: outside ot the steam pipesl The top and sides of the wooden pipes are covered with heavy tarred .roofing-felt to prevent water from coming tn contact with them.. A service-pipe 3-4 ot inch in diameter, running! from the main will serve to! warm a large dwelling. - ii I !-&The service-pipe does not extend directly from the wrolight-iron main, but from a cast-iron expanU sion dox in wnicn me enas or tne main pipe can exH pand arid contract. In the dwelling; the service pipe is fo constructed j as to deliver at will eithejij pure ary steam ior neating purposes, or not water from condensed steam for laundry purposes, Ah automatic value regulates ffie pressure of the steam so that! whatever the distance may be from the boiler-house to the dwelling, or whatever the pres4 sure maiy be in the main, , it cannot exceed -a given amount . .. !. :. : : . .. ,1 j The Quantity of steam used is shown by a small meter which makes an accurate record upon a ribbon ofi paper, the quantity depending of I course upon the size of the aperture and the pressure. The! steam passes irom tne .regulating valve into a dis tributing chamber either in the basement or attirj,1 from1 which it diverges to the several radiators or heaters in the house. iThe steam is finally received into a Chamber and trap in the basement, where the condensation is received and stored in a small cistern.) This water can be elevated to the kitchen by the pressure of the atmosphere without pumping, or it ca be forced to the upper story by the direct pressure; of the steam without pump or engine. ' Thik water having been distilled is the purest and softesjt fluid possible, and each family will daily obtain: from two to four barrels, according to the i number of radiators. This water ; condensed from Steam should be deducted from the city water bill, as the heating -company has paid for it once, or the city' should supply the central boiler with water free. : 1 he company have now about three miles of un der-ground steam pipe extending through portions of fifteen streets, supplied with a boiler pressure of thirty pounds to the square inch.' They are success-; fully warming at an average of seventy degrees, a large school building containing ro5,ooo cubic feet: of space, the largest ball in the city, and rooms in. the same building, making about 150,000 cubic feet of space; and forty large dwellings; and are running two steam engines, one of them being over half k mile from the boiler-house,1 The total space armed by otie boiler. 5 feet by 16 feet, is over 1,000,000 cubic feet. ii hrH-r. ' :'. r I.: Ml f It is proved that a dtstrict of four square miles, or equal 19 sixteen cusuicis ot ;unciau mite square can be economically warmed from one central point. The company furnishes the mains, and the consumers pays a!) expenses from the curb, the cost of ap paratus depending upon tne style ot radiators, etcf Mr.' Hojly has,! patented a radiator to cost six dol lars, which heats' admirably. The company owns all the! r alent issued to Mr. Hollv. as follows! Case Ai 27 claims; B, 9 claims; C, I claim; D, i claims; total, 39 claims..,-' jj j j ..j. .:: The revolution to follow from the use of steam heating -from a central point can now hardly be ap- preciatea. r or instance, steam ' pipes win oc iaia from the mains to hydrants, by the side of the water pipes, to supply steam fire, engines, which will then dispense with, the cumbrous boiler, one-half of j the expense, and all smoke, noise; etc! Firemen will take steam from underground pipes as they do water, the steam and water hose lying side by side! each having itsj own' office. Water thrown Into a burning building or room will "soon flood - the floors, but the fire may continue to con sume the joists below, j Steam being water converted into' gas,' is lighter .than air, and will ascend to the ceiling, exclude the air and prevent combustion With bo pounds of steam in the main, a a-inch cubic feet per minute steam hose will deliver 5,000 which will give a depth of two feet of steam A ,.:,! below die ceiling ct room xjxioo feet In sue. The sue of steam ia extinguiahing f res is well known in the oil regions where it is freqaently sued in the case of burning oil tanks when water would be ase. less. - Steam i will be used to clean side-walks in Winter, ia various ways. 1 1 A hot weQ one foot wide by six feet long connected with the sewer, located near the curb-stone, with covers, etc, will speedily melt all the snow that can be shoveled in. Finally, to summarize, i i . , t. i Houses can be warmed; . . .. Food can be cooked: , I I Clothes can be washed and dried; Steam engines can be run; , Fires can be extineniahed: i all in an jeconomical : manner, with steam deliv ered from one central point, throughout a distance 01 lour square mues. I - : "AESTHETICS AND SCIENCE." Lecture by Prof. A. R. Crote. at Coodell ''i:l..i-i""j Hall. Last Evenlna;. f i .. 1 a - : '; '-11 1 . ' : '"r-".;i- Prof, A. BL Crote last! evening delivered a lecture at Goodell Ilall, in the Graduates Association course. His' subject was " Esthetics and Science, and he treated it in a very interesting manner. In the Opening portion of his lecture. Prof. Grote dehned tne word " testttetics ! ana its derivation It was first applied by Banmgarten and afterwards by Kant to the imitative arts, i The different sense organs of the body were then defined, namely sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch, tin his classifica tion and physiological explanation, the sneaker fol lowed the researches of Young, Bain, Spencer and Allen. The human mind falls intq two divisions, he said, tne intellect and the emotions. The aesthetic feelings belong to the latter category. He then went on to show in simple language the reasons why the sense of! sight and hearing produce pleasurable or painful feelings. .Esthetic feelings are painful when the demands made on the sensory organs are larger than can be sustained by the general . vitality of the body. They are pleasurable when the nerves are not exhausted by use. 1 he wear and tear on the sensory (nerves produced a feeling of pain or discomfort shwn to be analogous: to the wasting of the system generally. It is not only with children, but with ourselves, who are grown-up children, that we can divide all physical manifestations into two classes, world and play, j work comprises all action undertaken lpr the welfare of the body, near or ultimately. Play isv comparatively purposeless action. and the pleasure arising from it is due to the fitness of the muscles to actor! be acted: upon. : When we are not called upon ' to : work, we must play in one fashion or another, and what play is to the muscles aesthetic pleasure is to the nervous system. Thus, as we. ! must have; time and opportunity to play, in order to derive pleasure from it, we must have time and opportunity to exercise four aesthetic feelings in order to enjoy them. Esthetic pleasures are not necessary ; to our existence. Those who work the hardest ! of ten-share 1 in them the least. : The speaker illustrated hi point with an anecdote pt Diogenes, the Grecian philosopher. The senses were spoken of as the avenues by which knowledge L ; conveyed j to . the i brain. By these roads do we take into ourselves, so much of the universe. Without them we remain in a state of more or less complete ignorance; . He then illus trated the difficulty of teaching ; blind or deaf 1 sons. , The total amount of our knowledge is bal anced by the amount of bur sense iirfpressions added to hereditary capacity. The speaker followed the researches oi Bain in classifyiug pleasure and pain! ana demonstrated at length the dependence, of art and poetry on scientific knowledge. He contended that there could be no conflict between science and Part and poetry. Genius and talent were not to be aisnnguisaca qualitatively, au were variations in the evolution of the human mind. There was an unbreakable i chain of mental progress which in eluded in its units inspiration .and genius. In re gard to art; Mr. Grote spoke of a comparative studv, showing an increase in the aesthetic feelings from the savages up to ourselves. Among our own race the variation) in aesthetic perception is immense, Red and vellbw does with angular outline delhrht large class of our adult population, while the pleasures of the more cultivated comes from the sight of pictures lronl tne bands ot bellstedt.Coleman of ilart. The powers of observation are little used by sav ages. , AU the details land effects studied by us have not even been seen. by them J While the other arts- appeal directly to our senses it is different with poetry. I In poetry the mind arranges the lm. pressions at d experiences received through the senses, so th it they produce aesthetic feeling. The art of the oet is shown in making this feeling pleasurable. This mental action is called idealizing, and it is ess mtially the!; poetic principles In any classification we must 1 prefer art to music, but Poetry may 1 e said to be greater than either since it a raws upon mem .10 1 give up ineir most rennea experiences. I In early times the poet and musician were one-, fin stiu earlier times au speech was sing-song, ad it is now among some of our Indians. We feel pleasure at a chance in the tones of the voice. Sameness in tone and j monotony of color give aesthetic offense - because they . give physical weariness, j We are here, upon the very secret of the pleasure we 1 receive irom versification, it arises primarily from the distinctness' with which the words stand but, the rhythmical movement, and the different modulations of the voice, j The remainder of the lecture was in the form of an essay on poetry, showing th influence 1 ot science' upon the new poetry. Th : fresh f actsbrought up by science are ldealued by the poet. He showed how the poetry of nature : d penned upon their environment, and closed with 1, description of the (effect of aesthetic cultivation a: the approach of death, 'showing how the mind must still reiain to the last the beauties has gather during life. iElJ R j : the OleAn, Bradford Be warren Railroad.

Suc- I , , 1 ' THE Y. M. A. LIBRARY. Th Naw Arranirnrrtant and Claaslflcatlon or BOOKS. During the past week the library of the Voang Mien's Association have been closed, for the purpose of petf ecting a re-artangement and classification of the books which has been in progress for soma months, a matter entailing much labor to the superintendent and others ! employed, but which it is believed will result in lasting and important benefits. Heretofore there has been an attempt at classification, as complete perhaps as the old system would admit, but the place of the books could with difficulty be maintained, and ai for the printed catalogues they have afforded comparatively little aid to the patrons of the library, on account of the intricacy of their plan, j With the new system, every book has its particular place in the library, and that exact place is indicated by a system of numbers so perfect that, with the! aid of the subject index and card catalogue which we are to describe, the librarian will know at once just where to find it when called for, and just where to put it when returned, ;The plan of classification which has been adopted was originated by Mr. Melvil Dewey, the librarian of! Amherst College, now. editor of the Zrry JommeU, and but few libraries have yet made use oft it. 1 It is thus described in his book, published at Amherst in 1876:1 ' v. - 1 !; M The library is first divided Into nine special libraries which are called Classes. These Classn are Philosophy; Ttwosory, etc., and are numbered with the nine digits. Thus Class 9 is the Library of History; Class r, the Library of Fine Art; Class s, the Library of Theology. These special libraries or Classes ar then considered independently, and each one is separated again into nine special Divisions of th main subject. These Divisions are numbered from 1 to 9 as were the classes. Thus M is the 9th Division (Zoology) of the jth Class (Natural Science). .A final division is then wade tar separating each of these Division into nine Section which arc numbered in the same way with the nine digits. Thus 513 is the 3d Section (Geometry) of the 1st Division (Mathematics) of the 5th Class (Natural Science). This number, giving; Class, Division and Section t called the Classification or Class Number, and is applied ta every book or pamphlet belonging to the library, ,. Ail the Geometries are thus numbered 513, all the Mineralogies 549, and so throughout the library, all the books on any given subject bear the number of that subject in the scheme. Where a o occurs in a Class Number, It has it normal sero power. Thus, a book numbered 510, is Class 5, Division 1, bat no Section. This signifies that the book treats of? the Division 51 (Mathematics) in general, and is not limited to any one Seetkn, a is the Geometry, marked 513. If marked aao, it would indicate a treatise on Science In general, limited to ne Division. A sero occurring in the first place would in the same way show that the book is limited to aw Class. The Classification is mainly made by subjects of contents, regardless of form: but it is found practically useful to make an additional distinction in these general treatises, according to the form of - treatment adopted. Thus, in Science we have a large! number of books treating of Science in general, and so having a o for the Division number. These books are then divided into Section, a are those of the other. Classes, according to the form they have taken ion. We have the . Philosophy" and History of Science, Scientific Compends, Dictionaries, Essays, Periodicals, Societies, Education and Travelsall. having the common subject, NATtnui. Scibmck, but treating it in these- varied forma. These form distinctions; are introduced here because the number of general works is large and the numerals allow of this division,! without extra labor, for the numbers from 501 to 509 would otherwise be unused. They apply only to the general ! treatises, which, without aaaicned that 503 is limited to Dictionaries or Cyclopedia of Science in general. In the same way a General Cyclopedia or Periodical treats of no one class, and so is assigned to the Class o. These books,' treating of no special class, but general In their character, are divided into I cyclopedias, .Periodicals, etc ' No difficulty is found in following the arithmetical law and omitting the initial rero, so these number arc printed 31, 3a, etc., instead of 031, 032, etc." I A printed index refers to the card catalogue. This index is copyrighted by Mr. Dewejr, but he allows the Young Men's Association to have printed a number of copies sufficient for use in the library. It is merely an index! of many hundreds of subjects, with attached figures! with the aid of which the card catalogue is to be consulted. I Itieinns,!" abolition, aborigines, absolution, Abyssinia, (with sub-divis ions, history of, travel and. description, language of, etc.) academies, accounts, acostics, and so on through the alphabet,, enumerating about all, the subjects that could be written upon or thought", of, The person wanting a book , on any given subject finds that subject In the punted index almost at glance, and noting the number'or numbers set opposite then proceeds to the card catalogue case. This is a handsome piece of furniture (made for the library by A. Cutler & Son) containing jlwelve'comf partments , with lock lidsy. these compartments being ; for j the general classes In each, there is a system of cards, kept ! from i ccnfusion by and sliding on -metal rods." The cards are separated to show the sub-divisions made use of in the system, and fire numbered so that the one! to corf respond with the number connected with the subi ject selected in the printed index is readily foundl The cards bear the names of the books and of the classes and sub-divisions. When the card repre senting the desired book is found, the numbers rep. resenting the particular sub-division and class to which it t belongs are! given the librarian, who is thereby enabled to at once put his hand on the book wanted. Our limited space will not permit a de scription of all the (details of the system,, but we can assure our readers that they will hnd it practical and readily understood, i IThe new classification. we should remark, does not apply to the depart ment Of fiction. ! 4 1 j The i library will be re-opened to the public on Monday morning next, - , !
