THE CENTRAL ELECTRIC COMPANY state that they have been receiving large orders for all sizes of porcelain insulators and are making a specialty of this particular line of goods. They claim to be handling the highest grade of porcelain ware, and the numerous large orders which they have recently booked seem to confirm their statements. There have been so many cheap, shoddy insulators foisted on the market that it will no doubt be of interest to the trade to know that another vitrified and waterproof insulator can now be secured.

The company have also met with great success in the introduction of their key socket and among the number of flattering letters which have recently been received by them, showing the way the trade appreciates their efforts in placing on the market such a superior device, they quote the following:

"Your favor of recent date at hand together with the sockets sent for. After examining the socket I would say that it seems to be up to the standard in all particulars. The contacts are good and the weight and breadth somewhat greater than other styles. In fact we rather like the looks of it and you may ship your socket in place of the one ordered."
