The Power That Serves free pdf Excerpt from The Power That Serves At Two o'clock on the afternoon of a March day a young man peered across New York Harbor from the shelter of the ridge of a power-house roof. His hard, weather-bitten eyes roved ceaselessly across the corrugated horizon. Small wind-riven clouds thrust constantly up from the southwest, and were as constantly hurried across the city by the weight of a gale that had been blowing since morning. These he marked casually till they merged in the blur of gray smoke that was whipping viciously from the throats of the stacks around him. The huge buildings beneath him vibrated delicately, and, mingled with the roar of traffic, he could distinguish a rythmic drone, as of some enormous and contented animal housed within them. Suddenly a black cloud thrust a ragged rim over the tail of Staten Island, twenty miles away. Mounting rapidly, it hurried into the vision of the weather-bitten eyes that caught its approach ere the on-coming shadow had fallen on the wrinkled surface of the bay. Simultaneously the lookout raced to a telephone booth that clung to the roof ridge. His lips had hardly left the transmitter before the smoke increased in volume, and tier on tier of boilers flung out vast exhalations of gas and vapor as though clearing their gigantic lungs for a coming battle. The lookout, again at his post, noted the swift advance of the midday gloom. Again and again he reached for the telephone. At his first message another young man, with a long chin and hawk-like face, who received it impassively, had stretched out a lean, nervous hand and pressed two buttons. A hundred feet below, in the chiaroscuro of the boiler-house, a number sprang into light. The system operator had demaned that number of boilers for instant use. Two stokers raced down the concrete aisle and depressed six levers. In three seconds the force draught was doubled. In twelve more the sharp pop of lifting safety-valves told their story. But these twelve seconds were very precious to the system operator. In adjoining rooms, on either side, were two great double-curved switchboards.
