Barnes & Robert Manufacturing Company, New Haven, Conn., is a newcomer at the national conventions. It is showing a new method of manufacturing wood strain insulators, with cold-drawn steel fittings and a one-piece cap that is uniform and practically indestructible. Cable hooks of an original design are also shown. The cable rack for manhole service is strongly constructed. It is claimed that a rack 10 in. long will sustain a weight of 200 lb. at the extreme end. A new mushroom guy anchor that "stays put" when in the ground is also exhibited. A new type of malleable iron insulator pins, designed to fit present types of wood cross-arms, is also shown. The company is represented at the convention by Frank Kobert, Fred Nason, E. R. Bryant and Charles Sehmitt.
