The Ice Question Vexinug
The i r ( 1 1 -1 1 1 of an adequate ice
supply for the summer season is one
that presents itx-lf most forcihly to
the people of Nehawka as well as
many other towns throughout the
country. The iieneral shortage of
this year hut serves to increase the
.rievious condition. Time was in the
not far distant past when ice houses
were filled and preparations made
for the impendinc: hot weather, hut
the advent of the artilicial ice mak
ing machinery and the comparatively
mild winters of the past few years
have made people more prone to trust
to the resources of summer.
In conversation with a local citi
zen who is in the hahit of putting
up his individual supply of ice for
the summer, he stated that one is
required to have the ice house, that
would cost in the neighborhood of
?loo. then he must pay from $40 to
.,0 each season for having it filled,
and in the summer handle the ice
from its place of store to the re
frigerator himself. His idea of re
lief is through the storing of suf
ficient to supply the needs of the
tow 11. or for a number to go together
and put up enough for their combined
As the situation now exists every
one is out of ice, the more xirgent
needs being met by importing the ar
tificial brand from either Nebraska
City or I'lattsmouth. and then only
a meagre supply can be obtained due
to the plants at both places being
taxed about to capacity in furnishing
their own patrons. In the meantime
business languishes for lack of ice.
ami on that brought in the cost be
comes almost prohibitive.
The time is ripe for a proposal
looking toward a community storage
house uu4 the forming of an arti
ficial lake near the Weeping Water,
from which adequate ice could be
cut to supply the needs of next sum
mer in this vicinity. The cost would
not be great compared with the ad
vantages, and if this course is not
pursued the next and only solution
lies in the erection of an artificial
ice plant here.
In this connection it may he said
that such a plant, with a cold stor
age room operated in connection
might prove both successful and prof
itable. Fruit from the commercial
orchards in this vicinity could be
successfully stored by the growers
right here at home, and released as
the prices warrant, thus giving the
growers the advantage sought by the
commission men when thev buv and
ship the apple crop in points where
cold storage facilities are available,
j In any event it is high time to be
' g"fn considering the ice problem
