Convention Notes and Personals

M. M. Wood, the prolific young inventor, so well known through his being the sole owner and manufacturer of Wood's electric light and railway specialties, No. 1536 Mondnock building, Chicago, went to Milwaukee with the large party on the convention train over the St. Paul railway. Mr. Wood, in addition to his factory in Chicago, has an experimental laboratory at Berwyn, Ill., at which he is developing some highly interesting and unique novelties. One of his latest productions is the Eureka porcelain cleat. He claims for this that it is the only straight line self-locking cleat made. As he aptly expresses it, "You pull the wire, the cleat does the rest." This specialty is made in one piece, is light, strong, ornamental, thoroughly glued, and never lets a wire slip. Mr. Wood is a keen advertiser, and his business card, distributed throughout the convention, speaks of this for itself.
