For six dollars, 100 tickets will be de

KT Should the season exceed 100

jat the end * t the season for the amount
of subscription we propose as an indizpeu*
sable requisite that the amount be paid in
advance. The convenience & comfort de
rived from having ice during the hear of
our summers if it were only to cool a pitch
er cf water w«*uid be well worth th* price
proposed in situations, where good w'ater
is not always to be obtained fiesh at the
moment it may be wanted, but when to
these are added the advantage of preserv
ing meat, butter, milk, &c. which may be
done by a simple contrivance, and at a
trifling expense it certainly an object
worthy the attention of every family.
