RECENTLY the Electric Storage Battery Company, of Philadelphia, closed a contract with the Indiana Interurban Construction Company for the installation of a battery of "Chloride Accumulators" for the Kokomo, Marion and Western Traction Company, at Kokomo, Ind. This battery consists of 288 cells, having a capacity of 384 kilowatts, to be used in regulating the load on sixty-cycle rotaries, so that the lighting and railway service can be obtained from the same generators.

A contract has also been closed with the Department of Commerce and Labor, at Washington, D. C., for two batteries to be operated by the National Bureau of Standards and Weights, at Washington; with the Clark University, at Worcester, Mass., and with the Bacon Air Lift Company for the residence of Hermon B. Duryea, Westbury, L. I. This latter installation consists of a battery of sixty-eight cells, having a capacity of forty-six kilowatts, to be used for lighting and power after the generator plant is shut down for the night.
