F. of from sixty-five one-hundredths to seventy-five one-hundredths volts can be obtained from this cell, and as there is practically no internal resistence the E. M. F. is available. The cell is claimed to be free from noxious fumes and gases and is said to not be affected by climatic changes. It requires no attention during its life and is not consumed by local action when not in service.

The company now has in preparation an enlarged catalogue fully describing the different sizes of the cell which it will be glad to send upon request.
