How Norfolk Keeps Cool Through
the Heated Term.
Tlio Pnssiug or tlio Nnlitrnl Ice Block

?'rotvilcit It Out of Vho lu This
The history of the use of lee In Nor?
folk and Its vicinity is one of much In?
terest, especially when the thermom?
eter Is away up in the nineties, anil one
of the most interesting features of tii ?
subject is the passing of the natural
Ice, which has now been elbowed out
of the market by the artificial product,
which is, in many respects, superior to
the ice formed by nature.
Prior to 1S4G very little ice was
brought for sale to the Chesapeake b ty.
Occasionally a trading vessel would ar?
rive at Norfolk with a small quantity
of Ice from the north. About ISJO a man
named Hartshorn began bringing ice to
Norfolk as a regular business, In a
small way. This continued up to about
the sixties. Then .after the close of the
war, there were two anil sometimes
three lee dealers here, dealing exclu?
sively in natural ice up t'i ls:e_>.
FIRST ICE PLANT HERE.
Ill that year an ice plant, with the
absorption system and a capacity of
SO tons, was erected her.; by a man
named Rettlg. This plant is still in
operation in Brambleton.
Untlls six years ug" natural ice only
wan used In the Norfolk section, nearly
all of it. if not unite ; II. came from
? 'lark's Ciive. Maine, and was brought
here In cargoes usually of 1,000 to 1,200
tons. Now scarcely any natural ice Is
used here, and well Informed ice hand?
lers say that it is doubtful Is another
ship load of nntural Ice is brought here
in the future.

population. In addition to this is the

which is given below.
ARTIFICIAL ICE VS. NATURAL ICE.
Artiflolnl ice is usually purer than na?
tural ice. The old theory of science that
water, in the process of frees ingi pre?
cipitated its Impurities and foreign
mutter, has long ago been disproved.
The artificial product is made froni
comparatively pure water taken from
wells of varying depth. This Is inn! >..
cooled and intend to remove impurities
ami then frozen Into cakes of ice by the
absorption compression or plate sys?
In one respect natural led is for some
purposes BUperior to artificial iee, and
this is its keeping qualities. N? ill '1
lee may be readily kept a'nywh re It

structed shelters. Artificial i-v. on the
contrary, must be kept, if wanted for
future use. in cold storage at a temper?
