THE H. W. JOHNS Co. had one of the most "fancy" and picturesque exhibits in the place, inclusive of asbestos helmets for firemen who picnic inside furnaces and boots for tourists in the heart of volcanoes. These dainty trifles while they helped draw an admiring crowd were but incidental to a really fine and large display of molded mica trolley line specialties, weather proof articles, vulcabeston spools, commutator rings, etc., and a large variety of asbestos pipe and boiler coverings. To clinch the argument in each case, special literature was ready, and should that fail, the company had in reserve the rhetorical and engineering talent of Messrs. W. F. D. Crane, H. G. Issertel, and J. W. Perry, besides H. Luscomb and E. B. Hatch of the Johns-Pratt Co.
