Full Text

A small ice-making machine, suited to vessels of the larger class engaged in freight traffic on the great lakes, is being made by the Automatic Refrigerating Co. of 972 Hamilton street, Cleveland. One of the machines will probably be placed aboard the steamer PRESQUE ISLE about May 1. Refrigerating plants are a necessity on passenger steamers engaged on long runs, but the idea of developing a small machine that might be used at low cost on freight vessels is new.
