The Old Cabinet Maker says:
There was a time when we used to put things in the
cellar or the well to keep them cool, put nowadays we have
minature ice houses, where we may store the eatables dur
ing the hot weather, from day to day. For one reason
alone you can't afford to buy a poor one, for you pay the
difference in price in the ice .you have to buy. When you
get one from us, right here at home, people you know, you
are bound to get the right kind. First, we don't handle any
other kind, and even if we wanted to we couldn't afford to
for just figure how much it would hurt us if we sold you
an ice burner for a refrigerator. If you have one now that
is using too much ice, what you save in a single season on
the ice bill will buy you a good one.
