The Fiske & Mott Insulator, which was illustrated and described in your columns two or three years ago, is now being made and sold by Mr. Wm. Brookfield, 45 Cliff street, this city. It is a high-resistance insulator, useful for all classes of service. A minimum contact surface is offered to the wire through the simple, yet effective device of placing in the groove six ribs on which the wire rests, so that without any loss of sustaining power the total contact is only about half an inch. Evidently there is a vastly higher insulation resistance on the line wire.
