Fred. M. Locke, Victor, N. Y., announces that he has succeeded in making a new material for insulators which he calls "Transparent Porcelain," and which possesses a number of remarkable qualities. The base is aluminum silicate, and the material can be melted and cast in the same manner as glass. Two of its most remarkable features are the temperature changes it will withstand, and its high specific inductive capacity. These, together with great mechanical strength and high resistivity, ideally fit the material for all classes of insulation.
