Notes of Exhibitors and Exhibits.

An attractive and interesting exhibit was that of the Mica Insulator company of New York, Chicago and London. Prominently located at the left of the main entrance, the handsomely decorated booth presented a very attractive appearance. Commutator rings, segments, troughs, tubes, disks, plates and a variety of forms of insulation were displayed, and were of special interest to all electric railway men. The company's new product known as M. I. C. compound was for the first time exhibited. Ten different grades and styles of micanite and empire cloths and papers were shown. This is probably one of the largest exhibitions of insulating material exclusively ever made, and goes to show the progress which the company has made during the last four years in bringing to perfection this particular branch of the electrical industry. By the use of micanite in the construction and maintenance of the apparatus, electricity as a motive power has become a phenomenal success. Charles E. Coleman of the Chicago house was in attendance and had charge of the exhibit. Franklin Brooks, vice-president of the company, was also in attendance.
