--Mr. John Harper has added another attraction to his drug store. This time it is a fine marble soda fountain made by the Matthews Apparatus Company and is the only fountain that water at a temperature of 36 can be drawn. 
    There are cups for 12 different syrups which are drawn by a kind of press the button way. Every time the button is pressed an ounce of syrup will run into the glass. A large ebony frame with a bevel mirror stands on the fountain. There are faucets for five mineral waters, and a large plate is on the with "Dunkirk" engraved on it.

JOHN MATTHEWS APPARATUS CO. 

    It does not require unusual powers of observation at the present time to detect a decided trend in the affairs of pharmacy toward higher degrees of elegance in everything that pertains thereto, both in the way of attractive medicaments and in the appointments of the places where the business is conducted. The inspection and study of the many beautiful treasures unearthed amid the ruins of cities of the past have always furnished a fruitful theme for speculation on the part of the student in formulating a theory of civilization to accompany them, and the greater the beauty of these treasures, the greater Is the degree of civilization accorded. This may be reasoning from effect to cause, but the idea is certainly plausible when the present demand for elegance is considered in connection with what we proudly refer to as our advanced social condition. The modern drug store which makes pretension of keeping abreast of the times is a highly ornate affair In its ensemble. The wonderful Aladdin would rub his eyes upon entering one, and even Solomon might find new ideas in the way of beauty could he behold some of them. The modern druggist who bows in obedience to the behests of his bogey-man, competition, is now compelled to enlist the services- of the finest artificers to enable him to keep in the swim. He now desires the best effort of the best designers in the line of mural art. The cabinet-maker and wood carver are constantly stimulated by his call for new elegancies in the way of fixtures and, last but not least, he quite emphatically demands the best of the manufacturer of his most prominent features, the soda water apparatus. It may be possible that the manufacturers of such apparatus have stimulated this demand by anticipating it, but however this may be, there is no questioning the fact, that the druggist now recognizes the desirability of having in the salient point of his place of business, an object whose beauty will lend attractiveness to its surroundings. He recognizes the fact that the satisfaction of the two senses of taste and sight requires a duality of effort and understands fully that the pleasures of one induce the pleasures of the other. The consequence is that good soda water requires an attractive apparatus for its full enjoyment, and vice versa, a fine apparatus calls for the dispensing of an article to which the same qualification will apply. The occasion of the Columbian Exposition has afforded an opportunity for not only indicating the present status of the requirements of the lovers of soda water, but it also points to its future. New ideas are constantly being advanced In everything pertaining to this business and the exhibition of the newest and finest in this line during the Columbian year was a proceeding naturally to be expected. As an exponent of these ideas the exhibit of the John Matthews Apparatus Company of New York, situated in the northwest corner of the Manufactures Building, furnishes all that could be asked in the way of illustration. The name "Matthews" in connection with soda fountains is a household word all over the United States as well as in nearly every civilized country in the world, and the exhibit in question, which is being seen by thousands daily, will certainly serve to further secure it in this pleasant relation. The cut on the opposite page will be easily recognized by such of the Era's readers as have visited the World's Fair as the Matthews Exhibit, which is conceded to be the best in their line. Owing to the small amount of space which they were able to obtain no effort was made to get out any elaborate or special designs for the occasion, so that the apparatus shown are their regular stock designs of the latest construction and were simply taken out of their New York show room and shipped to Chicago for exhibition. Of the three apparatus exhibited the most important on account of its beauty and size is the one of which a front -view is given and which is very appropriately named "The Capitol." This large and attractive wall structure may be very aptly characterized as a chef d'oeuvre in the way of artistic soda water apparatus. It is made wholly of selected onyx of the finest and most expensive variety. Nature has been compelled to give up some of her choicest treasures and none but the most beautifully veined onyx has been used in its construction, special care having been exercised in the selection of contrasting varieties to bring out the artistic effect of the moldings and trimmings. The top of the body of the apparatus is furnished with silver-plated metal covers, so accurately fitted as to render the ice case very nearly air-tight, which feature will commend itself strongly as a factor in the economical use of ice. The superstructure is of chaste and elegant design finished in Ivory white, the carvings and salient points being ornamented with gold tracery. It also contains three beveled mirrors of the finest French plate glass set on an incline, and is further ornamented by three silver-plated gas or electric light pendants of elegant design. The length of the apparatus is 12 feet, and its extreme height 8i feet. Its capacity is 29 syrup, 8 mineral and 4 double stream soda water draught tubes.

The apparatus to the left is known as the "Nevada" and consists of two separate bodies which may be used independently. The whole is surmounted by an elaborately carved superstructure of ebonized cherry, in which are set three French plate glass beveled mirrors and three handsome gas or electric light pendants. The body is constructed of St. Anne marble with trimmings of onyx and Namur. The length of each body is 3 feet and 10 Inches and the height of the structure is 8 feet. The capacity is 20 syrups, 8 mineral and 2 double stream soda tubes.

At the opposite side of the enclosure is found the "Shandon," a wall apparatus divided into two sections, each of which can be used independently of the other The superstructure is of elaborately carved ebonized cherry, the top of the central section being set with beautiful onyx tiles. It also serves as a setting for three French plate glass mirrors, the center one being inclined, and in front of each of these is a gas or electric light pendant. The front of the body of the apparatus is constructed of Vert Maurin and the ends of Namur marbles, the moldings and trimmings consisting of onyx and French Gyrate. The capacity is 20 syrups, 4 mineral and 2 soda water tubes, and the dimensions are 7 feet in length and 8 feet and 3 inches In height.

It is presumed that the idea of giving each design of soda water apparatus a distinctive name was solely for the benefit of the manufacturer in preserving their identity In making sales, cataloguing, etc. If such is the case they have certainly "builded wiser than they knew." It may at first blush appear rather far-fetched or trivial to attach a deeper significance to such a seemingly simple procedure, but to those who have studied Herbert Spencer's "Philosophy of Style" and have taken

cognizance of the effect which certain words or arrangements of words have upon the mind, the application of the idea which the Era presents in this connection will be readily perceived. The pleasures of taste and sight have already been referred to, but he Is certainly devoid of a finer sense who falls to allow his imagination to bring before him pleasant memories which the nomenclature of the Matthews Company will easily suggest. There is an inspiration in the wards, "Mahopac, Mohawk, Huron, Capitol, Nevada, Shandon, Merrimac," etc., which may with propriety be regarded as useful adjuncts to the proper indulgence in America's favorite beverage.

The firm was established in 1832, and Is therefore the oldest as well as the largest house in the world, devoted entirely to the manufacture of soda water apparatus, bottling machinery and supplies generally. Being pioneers in their line, the long, honorable and successful career of this house, extending as it has over a period of nearly two generations is quite remarkable, and can be accounted for in no other way than by the presumption that merit and correct business methods were the prime factors in bring about this result which has made the name' 'Matthews" a guarantee of superiority and has gained for them the acknowledgment that all apparatus and machinery manufactured by the firm excel in durability, workmanship and finish, while the manufacture of their goods upon a large scale enables them to make prices which are beyond the competition of smaller manufacturers. The immense works of this house are situated on First avenue and 28th and 27th streets, New York City, the office and sales rooms being numbered 447, 449 and 451 First avenue, directly opposite the famous Bellevue Hospital. It will be a matter of interest to know that the factory is at least fifty times as large as when the business was first founded and more than fifteen distinct mechanical trades are conducted under Its roofs in making the different parts necessary to produce the beautiful and artistic apparatus so well known to the trade and the public generally.

The magnitude of the business done by this enterprising house may be inferred when it is known that they employ over thirty traveling salesmen, besides a corps of salesmen at their factory show rooms and for the New York city trade.

A history of this famous house would be a history of the soda water industry from its Inception, and the experience which age alone can give always has been and now is devoted to the production of apparatus, such as any first-class druggist could place in his store with satisfaction and confidence, and to the development of improvements which are the newest and latest in their line. We are informed that they have just perfected a new arrangement for dispensing syrups, which they Intend to Introduce to the trade the coming season. The syrup jar is glass only, and the method of drawing the syrups will be Instantly recognized as vastly superior to any now in vogue. The Era would advise the trade generally to look into the new invention, which was perfected too late for exhibition at the World's Fair, and can give the assurance that a visit to their factory when in New York will prove both interesting and profitable, and can also from experience promise a cordial reception and polite attention.

"Soda Water Apparatus and Machinery " is the title of a neat little booklet issued from the home of the John Matthews Apparatus Co., First avenue, 26ih and 27th streets, New York. A modest announcement on the first page says the illustrations very inadequately represent the designs described, but we think it is capable of commanding the attention of all progressive druggists. Send for it, also ask for their beautiful catalogue. "Quality the Best, Prices the Lowest and Terms the Easiest" is the firm's motto.

The 1894 catalogue of the John Matthews Apparatus Co., 449 First avenue, New York, is a publication of more than usual elegance, devoted to descriptions of apparatus which partake of the same character. The Climax Removable Glass Syrup Jars are among the desirable features of the Matthews' apparatus, and many users of them have testified as to their utility. The catalogue, which Is sent free, tells all about them, and every owner of a soda fountain should investigate their merits. The Matthews Co. are prepared to quote prices on their new designs which will place them within the reach of all, and every prospective purchaser should compare their prices with those of other manufacturers before buying.

John Matthews Apparatus Company. "After leaving Frazer's it was a question whether we should keep on visiting some of the retail stores or go over to the offices and factory of the John Matthews Apparatus Company, at First avenue and 26th street. We concluded that it would be better to visit the Matthews company first, so we walked down 26th street, past the Madison Square Garden, and on over to First avenue. As we entered the office of the company, which is just across the avenue from Bellevue Hospital, we met Mr. John Doherty, the assistant manager, and had quite a chat with him. The John Matthews Apparatus Company has a very large building, with five floors, but is of Irregular shape, several buildings having been thrown into one as the company needed more room. The original factory was on the same site and was established in 1832. The showroom for apparatus, the marble ones being especially noticeable, is a very large place, and we were shown through it by Mr. Doherty. The firm imports many varieties of marble from France. Italy and Belgium, and also uses a great quantity of onyx from Mexico. Mr. Doherty told me that the use of Mexican onyx for fountains Is becoming more and more common; in fact, there is quite a rage for It, so to speak. The firm's Climax system for storing syrups in removable glass jars with a measuring chamber for the syrup, which Is emptied at one stroke by a very easily worked and simple device, is claimed by the firm to be the cleanest, most rapid and most practical method for storing and dispensing syrups. The company does a very large business in bottling machinery. They have a new system, which is being adopted to a great extent In other large establishments, and Mr. Doherty showed us the machinery department In order that we might get some idea of the work.

"It Is through Matthews' new system of carbonating- machinery that druggists are enabled to have their steel fountains charged to their full capacity, Instead of only two-thirds capacity, as heretofore. I think it would be a good thing if out-of-town druggists would call at the Matthews company's office when they visit New York, for there Is enough of Interest to make such a call worth while. Before we went out I was Introduced to Mr. I. F. North, the business manager; Mr. T. N. Seymour, chief salesman; Mr. John Ormerod, superintendent of the factory, and several other gentlemen.

FIRE NEAR BELLEVUE HOSPITAL.

Patients and Nurses Somewhat Fright-
         ened, but There Was No Panic.

  Fire started on the fourth floor of Nos. 449 and 451 First avenue, occupied by the John Matthews Apparatus Company, at eleven o'clock last evening. The flames gained headway and because Bellevue Hospital was on the opposite side of the street a second alarm was turned in.
  There was some excitement among the patients and nurses in the hospital, but the flames were under control before the excitement became fear. The damage is estimated at $10,000. The fire is believed to have been caused by an explosion of gases in a room where soda water fountains are charged.
