They Are a Decided Improvement
Upon the Old Ones.
The nianaRrment of the Hcranton
lOIcctiia Light und Heut company (n
carryliiff out their plans for the im
provement of the street IIrIUs have
commenced to Install a new type of
imp lamp which promises to Rive rcii
era! nn (Infliction. Tho.e nlrendy placed
In position have made n favorable lm
lirt'Hilon, and oven the most critically
Inclined pronounce them supeilor to
any Unlit over runilMiert In this city.
The new lamp has many new features,
flilef iimont,' them are: Increased
caudle power, r?reat brilliancy, perfect
distribution nf light und freedom from
shadows and llloUerlriK, which have
heretofote been noticeable In the old
lamps. The efforts of the elci'lilc llKht
conipuny, who are similnfr no e.xpenst
In maklnf( the Improvements, will, It
Is expected by the company, be duly
appreciated bv the public generally.
The city councllmen nnd oth-;r iMHclols
have expresced their entire satisfac
tion Mlth the new lamps and the tint
tesutts shown upon the court houso
Kiiuaie iiuiJ other points where they
huve boen placed.
After the new lluhts have all been
put In place the company oltlclals pie
diet that the change In the location of
the lamps from the top ot the poles to
n projecting- arm lower down will be
found to be for the belter.
