JOHNSBURY Manager Orcutt Buying Supply from Crystal Lake Houses at Barton The people of St. Johnsbury are facing an ice shortage and Earl.H. Orcutt, the manager, ìs urging ali Vii nntrons to eeonomize as much' as possible that ali may get some ice while the season lasts. Mr. Orcutt bought the ice business of Menut and Paiks early in the spring after the latter had harvested the 1920 crop. Mr. Orcutt boueht the entire crop of 5,000 to 6,000 tons and is the onlv ice dealer in the vil lane. He has had a large trade through the summer and'during the present hot wave the shrinkage as well as the increased demand has so depletcd the sur hat there is not enough in his ice houses to finish the week.

He has arranged to have a carload come down from Barton every other morn ing and has also bought a small sup ply in North Danville.

This is Mr. Orcutt's first season in the ice business and he says he will harvest enough next winter so to never be caught again. While he has to ray a fancy price for the ice he is now buying he will furnish it to his customers at the usuai price and take his loss. , 4 WORSTED MILLS ING TO DULL MARKET WCWNSOCKET, U.
