The Berkeley Ice Supply Gave Out Yesterday

There was a great demand for ice yesterday at Berkeley and so great had been the demand on the two preceding days that the supply gave out about 10 A. M. yesterday and no more could be obtained until in the afternoon. During Saturday and Sunday the only ice dealer in town sold two tons of ice and yesterday the central telephone clerk was kept busy most of the time answering calls for ice.
