The subject of insulators and insulating compounds is certainly one that does not lose in interest. It remains of foremost importance in these days of telephony, electric lighting and multiplied telegraph wires. Our columns give evidence this week of the current interest in the matter. The letter from Mr. Bassett, of the Chicago Insulating Company, deals with a point raised in Mr. P. Atkinson's recent article on the subject and the contribution from Mr. J. F. Kelly calls attention to the merits of the Lewis Self-Binding Insulators. These insulators are practically unknown in America, but we understand that they are now obtainable, as the Electrical Supply Company, of this city, has imported a quantity of them
