S. New York had this year what is Seldom accorded if a a White Christmas. A soft Damp Snow full All through the night previous and the morning Sun shone on As Beautiful a sight As one often sets. Every Bough on every Shade tree Quot wore Ermine too dear for an Christmas was a Holiday and the soft Light Snow was cleared from very few pavements. It rained before night and froze solid before another morning and a sorry sight was to get whole City. The Clearing process lasted All Day Iko Adway and All the Long avenues were sept As clean As your Kitchen floor but for a week the solid Snow filled the Side streets and was piled High in the Parks. The immensity of new \ Ork glows on one every year. When first i visited Here before the Brooklyn Bridge was built there were none of the Mammoth structures that almost take your breath away thinking of them. I stopped opposite one now going up on Nassau Street tipped Back my head till i nearly broke my neck and then could not see the top. Last year when 1 Ivas Here i am sure there were Only about half As Many As there Are now. How when 01 where is it going to end ? i Lach of these enormous buildings hold through the Day Many thousand people As Many As some Small cities. Between five and six at night every one of these empty itself. Is it any wonder that the Quot rapid transit Quot companies Are beside themselves in their efforts to transport All these quickly and safely to their Homes Why even during the Day the trolley cars Are so crowded one can rarely get a seat in another year the underground will be completed but in another year that will not begin to accommodate the extra people it was expected to when it was begun. Now Why will people live in new York and be crowded and pushed and hustled and dictated to by conductors and motor men told to step Lively just As though they were cattle or Irod under foot As though they were reptiles when there is so much of c of s fresh Green Beautiful country for them to stretch their limbs in and god s pure air to fill their lungs with. New York is such a constant and continual Drain on one s pocketbook too and one gets so Little Ift return. The privilege of being jammed to the Point of suffocation for every five cent car fare and the privilege of waiting hours tor the change for any Little Purchase. I took a Long drive the other Day Pas sing Miles and Miles of rows of Brick houses so like each other that one has to know one s own biome by its number just As a prison convict is known. A delivery Wagon from one of the Down town stores stopped before one of these prosaic houses and the thought occurred to ine person from every House of course with some if not ail the big stores they Are comparatively few you know and All their Little purchases must be delivered immediately and they Are. How can it be done in t this a wearisome train of thought. I eople seem to think Jones is paying the freight but of course he in t. At Christmas time the big stores engaged All the furniture moving vans and other trucks to help out their delivery department besides putting signs up everywhere asking people to please take Small packages Home with them. At Wana maker s tie other Day i counted Twenty. S ven delivery wagons loading up before the store. It was after Christmas too. I he Jam right after Christmas was worse than just before. It seemed As it every l Ody was changing her Christmas gifts abusing a privilege As people will. 1 walked up town from Wanamaker s. The study of human life on Broadway is intensely interesting. After a while i tried to locate myself but on no Corner could i see a guiding sign though i walked for blocks. At last 1 stopped a stolid fated messenger boy. It was no Effort to Stop him. Quot How is one to know where one it it in this Blooming City Quot i in . He looked at me As though he thought 1 d lost my senses when it Only my Way 1 made myself More Lucid by asking what Street the Cross Street was. Quot it s i the Quot he said Quot the next is 17th.&Quot Quot yes i could have figured that out myself but How do you find out Quot Quot i he answered Quot ver Haf ter know. That s the key note to life in new n Ork. You have to know to make it satisfactory. It May tje a Liberal education to novy new York but 1 would rather know when the Spring violets Bloom where the sea Waves Wash the Golden Sands and where the Robins build their Happy Homes. 1 would rather fraternize with people who do not push me nor Jam me nor Tell me to step Lively. I would rather shop in bar Harbor and carry my purchases Home. Of course there is another Side to new Vork. Its splendid theatres its concerts its magnificent picture galleries its Palace hotels its grand institutions of learning its hospitals and its Parks. You know of All these in the magazines you have read and Makenny word for it it is much easier and much More sat Isiac grammar school. Edward b.

In size the building is 54x75 feet 35 of the latter forming a Wing 34 feet wide. As one enters the building by the main Entrance he passes through double swinging doors into a Large Hall 18x20 meet on either Side of which Are Large wardrobe rooms each 10x20 feet.

Back of the corridor Are two Large school rooms accommodating respectively 52 and 62 pupils.

Some question having Arisen regarding overcharges by the various contractors a committee was appointed by the town at a recent meeting to investigate the same. It was found that the charges were incurred by changes and alterations made in the original contracts All of which were Appio cd and the selectmen instructed l a the Bills. Below is printed a letter received by in. K. Whittaker chairman of tie special committee which is interesting Ami will no doubt be grat iting to the taxi Ayers my. A. K. Will 11 Akik bar Harbor me. Dear sir a the estimate of your new grammar school building Given below is based upon the inspection made of the premises january 11 03. The location of the schoolroom Halls corridors and outside doors in relation to the Points of Compass Are in Gannony with the recommendations made by perts in these matters. The Walls and Cement hours seem to be substantially built of Good material. The basement is divided into ample and convenient rooms for the use of pupils. They Are provided with modern lavatories and water closets. The finish in this part of the building is of a better Quality than is usually found in similar rooms. The heating Plant is evidently More than equal to the demands that will be made upon it. The hot air flues Are of Standard size and the openings Are properly located. The same statements Are True of the ventilating shafts. The outside doors Halls corridors stairways pupils dressing rooms and doors opening from school rooms Are of suitable dimensions and Well located with two exceptions. The girls dressing room on the second floor at the East end of the building is too far removed from the door leading into the nearest school room to be easily inspected when there Are pupils in the Hall dressing room and schoolroom. It would be difficult to improve the present arrangement with the space available. The main Entrance Hall is larger than is needed for the number of pupils provided for the school rooms. This Hall is one of the attractive features of the building and its Beauty and usefulness will be appreciated by visitors As Well As teachers and pupils. The three dimensions of the several school rooms Are exceptionally Well proportioned. The color scheme of the entire building is excellent. There is enough Glass space in the several rooms to admit sufficient Light and the windows Are properly located with two exceptions. The East windows in both of the East rooms one in cach should be covered with heavy of Pacque curtains. The Halls Are unusually Well lighted. The Book and storage closets ate Large and Well located. The blackboards should be of slate and a few inches wider than plaster spaces which have been stained for temporary use. The desks in All the rooms Are among the Best As Well As most expensive in the Market. The joints Corners and miters of All the standing finish doors floors Aud windows show creditable workmanship. The height of the wainscoting in the Halls the Quality of the lumber used for All the finish the staining and polishing of the Woodwork and the fittings used throughout the building Are deserving of special commendation. The plumbing is Complete and according to scientific methods. The drinking Fountain is of the same pattern As those used in the most expensive iii dings in cities.
