The Mica Insulator company, sole manufacturer of micanite, 218 Water street, New York, with factories at Schenectady, N. Y., and London, England, is sending to the trade a large sample card, handsomely gotten up, showing samples of micanite commutator segments, rings and slot insulation, for the standard railway motors and power generators. Micanite and Empire insulating cloth and paper are shown in nine different grades, which are used largely for insulating armature cores and fields. The lower part of the card is given up to the list of agencies in the principal cities, where stock is carried: Chicago, W. H. Sills & Co.; St. Louis, A. S. Partridge; Cincinnati, Sinclair Randall; Cleveland, the Cuyahoga Supply company; San Francisco, J. W. Brooks & Co. On the back of the card appears a description of the different lines of insulation that the company manufactures. The company is enjoying an excellent trade on its micanite, which has become known as the standard insulation, both in this country and in Europe.
