ICE FOR HOTELS
Vermont and Vim NmiI to Make Their
Own Supply This Hammer
The scarcity of Ice has no terrors for
the Hotels Vermont or Van Ness, whlL'h
have their own Individual Ice manu
facturing plants and ran furnish plenty
of cold Rtr'i whether any lee is harvested
The Van Npss Hotel has Its plant which
Is capable of manufacturing two tons of
Ice per day In the hottest days of the
summer. It also has the apparatus for
keeping thp nlr at the right temperature
In the !nrge central cooler which sprves
as a store room for perlshabln goods for
both hotels. The big Ice making plant In
the Van Ness wan Installed some time
ago but has not been used, This sum
mer because of the certain scarcity of Ice,
It trill be put In operation nnd has al
ready been overhauled" for tho purpose
now. The plant can easily make enough
Ice for both hotels nnd the Ice will be of
ths purest, ns it will be mado of filtered
water. In addition to f retxlng the water,
It can furnish exactly the desired
temperature for the largo coolers.
At the Hotel Vermont a new refrigerat
ing plant has been Installed nnd Is al
ready In operation. Tills cools all tho Ice
boxes In thnt hotel. Tho plant, like thnt
In the Van Ness House, is operated by
electricity and tho ammonia and other
needed essentials can bo used over and
ovnr again. The apparatus nt tho Hotel
Vermont Is so arranged that when n
desired temperature Is reached the plant
stops automatically nnd when the tem
perature rises tho machine will start In
The Home for Destitute Children and
a number of the residents along flhel-
burne bay have taken their Ice from the
bay and the loe houses are well Ailed In
Shelbume, but that possibility Is now
about gone for Burlington. John Mtllotte
stated Monday that ho hod about given
up hopes of getting any ice this year.
Ths loe In Shelburno bay Is already
rotting around the shores so that It Is
difficult to get teams on It In many places.
Tho Central Vermont Railway company
Is still outtlng Ice al Alburg and Bhlpptng
