THE HEMINGRAY GLASS COMPANY, Covington, Ky., with factories at Muncie, Ind., recently received the following letter from the Missouri River Power Company at Helena, Mont., written by M. H. Gerry, Jr., general manager, which is a remarkable tribute to the excellence of the company's type of insulator: "We are at present running the highest voltage in commercial circles, and are carrying a very large and important load, at a distance of sixtyfive miles from our power-house, with practically no line trouble whatsoever. These high-voltage transmission lines are equipped entirely with your insulators, and are giving excellent satisfaction, and are demonstrating daily the practicability of transmitting power at voltages of 55,000 and over."
