water last fall, or some other
sause, has intervened lo make tin;
ice to be had from the west bank
f the river and anywhere con
venient to the cily, very poor, and
too full of sand and dirt to be lit
for use for any purpose.

Egcnberger and (ieorge Poisall
made a search for ice on the river
and located a line Held of about
twenly acres of clear ice in a

lot of it can be put up.

the company's local agent, Mr.

insured in tin; company for $700,
and I he loss was estimated at
Hi 1. 70, the amount the carpenter
said he would do the work for. Mr.
Given received a check for I his
amount and was satisfied with
