Oil Insulator. Mr. F. Higgins, of the Exchange Telegraph Company, has sent for our inspection an example of an oil insulator for shackles, which he has designed for use on his company's lines, and which he thinks might perhaps be of use for the insulation of overhouse electric light wires. We first imagined that Mr. Higgins had been looking at one of Johnson and Phillips's insulators until he suddenly saw double, but upon closer inspection we noticed that it was stamped as the latter firm's patent.
