WASHINGTON HERALD'S "WASHINGTON IN 1915" EDITION.
Million Dollar Corporation
of National Prominence
Twelve or fifteen years ago. the bus!-
ness of manufacturing ice cream was
confined largely to the caterers, drug
gists, and small dealers conducting "ice
cream parlors." The business was of
a precarious nature and not many peo
ple cared to experiment with it on a
large scale, since the demand was only
a seasonal one and the product consid
ered a delicacy rather than a staple food.
Ten years ago, the Chapin-Sacks Mfg.
Company, then operating an ice plant in
this city, conceived the idea of manu
facturing ice cream on, a larger scale
than had ever been attempted soutn
of New York or Philadelphia. The name
chosen for the product was "The Velvet
Kind Ice Cream." The idea being from
the ery start to make the name synony
mous with quality, purity, and service.
The venture succeeded beyond their
fondest hopes and in a few ears' time
the business had assumed such p.-opor-tions
that a new factory was necessary,
so a two-story brick and concrete struc
ture was built to house the ice cream
department. The equipment installed at
that time was of fie most modern and
sanitary type. The capacity of the plant
was considered ample for years to conic,
but in 1913 an additional floor had to bj
added and the plant was then the largest
In the country and so well equipped and
arranged that many of the newer plants
in other cities hae been modeled after
So much for the history of the "origin
of "The V.lvct Kind" Ltt us now
Like a trip throJgh .ind jiound the plant
as the writer of tint aitK;ie did. 1 was
first shown the ice convener which

cream un the lumi and in the cabinets,
from ice houses three lloors below into

held ov.ei night. In the heighth of the
summer season, the daily consumption of
Ice amounts, to over ltrt tons per day.
Think of it. enough ice to keep over 5,(
family refrigerators cold twenty-four
hours. The huge ice crusher is located
Just outside this storage room and the
crushed ice passes down through a chute
to the teams in the driveway or on the
shipping floor below.
Passing on through a can storage room
we came to the pasteurizing room, where
the first and most imiortaiit stage in the
manufacture of "The Velvet Kind" is
carried on. The cream is taken out of
the large storage loom, where it is kept
at a temperature slightly above the freez
ing point of water, emptied fioni the
cans into a pasteurizing at and pas
teurized by the "holding method " From
''there the cream passes through the
homogenizer. a machine which, by exert
ing a pressure of from two to three
tnousand pounds per square Imh on the
cream as it passes through a small
valve, breaks up the microscopic v.it
globules and disseminates the fat lttei

The homogenized cieani passes over a

having a capacity of one thousand gal
lons each, are made of hcuvv tin insu

This coil is so ananged that It may be
revolved while ice water is pumped
through it Tighl-tittmg covers are
clamped on. so the pa.teunzed cream is
kept from contamination by air and diit
and at tcnipeiature just a little above

ten to fifteen minutes is required to
freeze a batch of twelve gallons of Ice
cream. The cream Is only frozen to a semi
solid consistency In the freezers; it is then
run into cans and the cans are delivered
Immediately to the hardening rooms,
where the final freezing takes place.
These rooms are heavily insulated with
cork and are kept at a zero temperature
or lower, by direct expansion ammonia
colls suspended from the ceiling. About
twelve hours in the hardening room is
required before the ice cream is ready
for the consumer.
The hardening rooms open conveniently
into the shipping department, which, of
course, is on the ground floor, together
with the can-washing and sterilizing
We will now go over on the "other
side," said my guide, and see where all
this refrigeration comes from. The
"other side, as he called It, is a good
sized factory in itself. There we saw
the big ammonia compressors, 300 tons
of ice per day Is their total maximum
capacity. The tank rooms, where the
Ice is frozen In five-ton cakes, is a very
Interesting place ami the wav that ice
Is handled Is a long story In itself.
We didn't go through the maintenance
nd construction department, but I was
assured that the company employed and
had well equipped shops for their me
chanics, carpenters, tinners, and paint
ers, together with a good-sized laundry.
Continuing on up the street by the
boiler room and an Immense brick Ice
house, we came to the stables, and I
am sure that the mort critical health
officer could find no fault either with
the location, in regards to distance from
the ice cream factory or the neatness
of Its appearance. Forty-eight mules
constitute the equipment here, he said,
and we have our own vetemarlan to
look after the welfare of our charges.
Consequently, you very seldom. If ever,
ee a lame team of ours on the street.
As we walked on through the wagon
yard, some of the early arrivals -were
just coming in and we waited long
enough to see the wagon washers per
form their duty. One team was being

back to the ice cream department xve
came through the garage, empty for
the time being, but at night, with the
fifteen electric trucks "on charge" and
the seven gas cars callins for their
share of attention, the place is busy
and crowded, indeed.
Now, said my guide, you have see.i
the home of "The Velvet Kind." Pret
ty thoroughly equipped and furnished, is
it not? Yet. you may have noticed that
we are quite badly crowded at that.
It is only a question of a short time
before we will have to build a new fac
tory in those vacant lots just above
us, and the next time we build, we hope
to build big enough and substantial

It m!ht interest you to know that we
manufacture SO.COO tons 4.000,0nu ten-cent
pieces of ice) each year, and, by the way,
that ice is made from water taken di
rectly from the city mains. With one ex
ception, we are the largest individual
consurtfTs of water in the city. The ice
eieam department alone has a daily con
sumption of M.000 to 2j.000 gallons of cold
water and 3.0J0 to 10,"0O gallons of hot
water, more than the average family
will use in three months, and that, just
to keep our place clean and sanitary.
We supply practically all of the hospi
tals in the city with Ice cieam: nearly
all the co-operative lunch rooms con
ducted in the different government de-
paitmcnts buy ice cream from us and
most of the lunch rooms and drug
stoies where ice cream is sold handle our
pioduct. Our select family trade keeps
four or five special delivery trucks busy
most of the time.
Why is it that "The Velvet Kind" has
acquired such popularity" I asked. Ee--Ausn
it is worthy of it and is only com
ing into its own, he replied For years
we have been making ice cream accord
ing to the best methods known. We ara
able to do this by controlling our own
supply of ci cam from the time it leaves
the farmer until the ice cream reaches
the consumer We have eight other
plants In five different States operating
in a similar manner to this one here
or furnishing the raw products, such as
milk and cream. The major portion of
the cream used here In the Washington
plant comes from our creameries 1j
cated in Buckeystown, Mil., and Wood
stock, Va. The milk is gathered dally
by automobile trucks, separated at the
creamery and the cream shipped to us
the same day as gathered. We co-operate

These figures, continues the article,

reason that the present area of farm
woodlands is much greater than it will
be eventually. For example, woodland
comprises 31 per cent of the entire farm
area of the South, and 'undoubtedly much
of this land will be put to other uses
than timber growing. Nevertheless, the
farmers of the United States now own
at least 250.OCO.000.CCO feet of saw timber

Brotheis three or four years and have
found them most satisfactory In every
way both as to modeling and sculpture
work. Their contract for the work on
the Bank of Toronto In this city amount
ed to between thirty and forty thousand
dollars and on account of the excellence
of their work we awarded them the con
tract lor tne moueiiiig ana carving of
the marble work In connection with the
Royal Bank her?, which work has now
been satisfactorily completed. We have
no hesitation in' stating that the work
executed by this firm for us has not
been exceeded by any that we have done
from time to time."

"Ardolino Brothers, architectural sculp
tors, have done a great deal of work
for us, including some of our most im
portant commissions. Their first work
was at the Portland City Hall. Portland,
Me. They also did the carving of the
building erected as head office of the
Bank of Toronto, Canada. One of the
last contracts In which they executed
the carving was the residence built by
Mr. Henry C. Frlck. on Fifth avenue, this
city. Al or their work has been satls-
jfactorlly executed, and we are very glad
to commend them to you."

DONN BARBER, architect. 101 Park

Ardolino Brothers, architectural sculp
tors, has been entirely satisfactory. They
cut some big marble figures for me
for the State Library at Hartford. Conn.
These figures were very large In size and
very complicated to cut. with a consid
erable amount of free standing and deep

other divers things, said to Martin: "You
are a cur: ou have ruined my home."
Martin started suit for slander and the
Jury awarded him six cents. Kane re
fused to pay. Martin then started Jus
tice court action and the verdict was in
gave entire satisfaction not only to the
sculptors, but to the Library Commis
sion and myself, and everybody else. In
other words I should say that they under
stand their business thoroughly, and I
would be willing to entrust them with
any carving I might have."

ence to Ardolino Brothers, it will prob
ably be unnecessary to go further than
to refer J on to the exterior stone carv
ing on the Scottish Rite Cathedral, which,
with the exception of the sphinxes, was
done by them, to show the very high
class worjs they do. With their ability
to do good work they show a very will
ing spirit and anxiety to do the most
artistic work possible."
