The Central Electric Company, Chicago, is distributing its 1909 general catalogue, which is a handsome volume of 1,024 pages. Unquestionably it has been the company's aim to make this catalogue the most complete electrical supply catalogue ever issued, and inspection of the book would indicate that this purpose has been accomplished. Considerable space is given to the specialties for which the company acts as sales agent Columbia incandescent lamps, Pittsburg transformers, Okonite wires and cables, G-I arc lamps and New Lexington high-tension insulators. An extensive line of fixtures is shown, and this department of the catalogue gives some conception olf the company's fixture department, which is said to be the most extensive in the West. The special announcement printed on the last page of the catalogue is also interesting as outlining in a general way some of the company's plans for expansion. The company is desirous of placing a copy of this catalogue in the hands of every individual who is actively engaged in plant operations, or who has anything to do with the specifying or purchasing of electrical material. Individuals who have not received a copy of this catalogue are urged to write for one.
