The electrical trade, especially the supply contingency of the West, will be interested to know that Sales Agent John W. Brooks, who has for years represented Pass & Seymour, porcelain manufacturers of Solvay, N. Y., and who, during the summer time was seriously ill with typhoid fever, has fully recovered and is again actively looking after Pass & Seymour's western interests. The porcelain business of Pass & Seymour has grown to such an extent that Mr. Brooks has given up the agency of the Crouse-Hinds Electric Company of Syracuse and all other lines that he has been representing, and will in future, devote his entire time to Pass & Seymour's interests. Under his charge the switch business of the Crouse-Hinds Electric Company has reached such proportions that it, likewise, now requires the exclusive attention of a western representative. Consequently, the Crouse-Hinds company has just established a store of its own at 133 South Clinton Street, Chicago, under the management of F. F. Skeel. Mr. Skeel came West at the time of Mr. Brooks' sickness, and it has been decided to make him western manager of the Crouse-Hinds business. Mr. Skeel has been prominent in marketing the Crouse-Hinds goods throughout the East, and is well fitted for his present responsible position.
