THE same steady demand for higher insulation which has led to the production of good weather-proof wires, has also resulted in the bringing out of a finer quality of insulators and of better means of supporting them. The latest of these improved supporting devices is shown in the adjoining cut. It is called the "Springfield bracket," and is manufactured by the Great Western Electric Supply Co., of Chicago. Being made of malleable iron, with a ribbed arm and a hollow screw, it is very light, strong and tough. The split screw has a slight give to it and grips the insulator tightly. The wall plate is also novel in design, being so shaped as to give a large spread with very little metal. The makers have, they report, in preparation other forms of malleable iron brackets embodying the same good features as the above.
