GOULD AND WATSON Co., of Boston, the well-known manufacturers of moulded mica specialties, exhibited a full line of electric railway insulators, and all kinds of appliances insulated with their material. They showed an incandescent lamp fitted on one of their new waterproof sockets burning in a glass jar of water, to prove their claims to waterproofness. A full line of screw drivers manufactured by the Clement Manufacturing Company, of Northampton, Mass., and insulated by moulded mica, was also shown. Mr. E. P. Sharpe, of Boston, was in charge of the exhibit, and Mr. C. Tennant Lee was also in occasional attendance.
