MR. SEYMOUR, of PASS & SEYMOUR, manufacturers of porcelain, incandescent electric-light fittings, switches, cut-outs, etc., was in town this week at Mr. F. M. Hawkins' office, 39 Cortland street, their Eastern agent. Mr. Seymour is exhibiting a new porcelain socket made specially for Edison base lamps. The lamp can be inserted the same as in a Westinghouse or T. H. base and can be unscrewed or screwed in the same as an Edison socket, only the metal part is slotted as in the above sockets. The bottom of the socket contains a spiral spring, so that in case the lamp should loosen, as it sometimes does in an Edison socket, you will always have current and light.
