Refrigerator.

Description: Patent for a new and improved refrigerator. This design is "for use without ice, the cooling effect being secured by the evaporation of water.

The apparatus is formed with a suitable framing, having its sides closed in with wire-gauze to permit the free circulation of air, and at the same time exclude insects and the like. At one side a door affords access to the interior of the refrigerator, and legs serve to hold its bottom above the floor or other support on which the refrigerator stands" (lines 16-28).
