One of the peculiar things about the electrical supply business is the remarkable suddenness with which a demand will sometimes spring up for an article which before has been scarcely known to the trade. A case in point recently has been the demand for porcelain tubes for insulating purposes, caused by the more strict insurance regulations. The demand for these goods is so large just at present that the factories have difficulty, it is said, in turning them out fast enough to meet the demand. The Electric Appliance Company, anticipating to some extent the present condition of the market in this respect, arranged some time ago to carry a very large stock of these goods, and are in shape at present to meet all demands. They have also just issued a complete catalogue of electrical porcelain goods, and are distributing it among the trade, and will be pleased to send it to any who have not been supplied.
