A Cabinet Refrigerator.
A FEW days ago, while passing up Sixth avenue, we saw at the store of Mr. Lesley?No. 605?a very neat and useful little article with which the readers of our home department can hardly fail to be pleased. It is nothing more or less than a small, portable refrigerator, which can be carried from room to room as circumstances may require. It has a reservoir for ice at the top, with a silver-plated faucet for drawing off the water. Below the ice is the cooling apartment, which
is chilled to a low degree by the ice above. This apartment is provided with a door having a good lock. The sides and door are filled with charcoal, and the whole article is beautifully grained in oak. For the sick-room, hospitals, the sideboard, and for people boarding who can not have access to a large refrigerator, this little cabinet affair is especially useful. Indeed, it is so small, portable, and convenient, that it would make a capital addition to a suit of chamber furniture; for ?oft in the stilly night? would it be found useful, when one is not in the mood or in the costume to descend to the kitchen for a refreshing drink.
