Shay, Stephens & Co., Chicago, are bound to make a record for themselves before the close of 1890, as they secured contracts during the first four days of this year for over 200,000 porcelain insulators and 1,000,000 glass insulators. Then there was an order for some glass battery jars, 16 1/2 inches wide by 11 1/2 inches deep. No wonder "Charlie" Stephens can smoke a pipe having a glass stem six inches in length, or that he presents a handsome "La Tosca" glass cane eight feet in length to every lady that visits his office.
