"The bogus rod placed cpon our dwelling we
have had taken down; and another ereted by Mr.
ARMITAGE, to which we would call the attention
of onr farmers and readers generally. It is put
up on tree scientific principles, and is a rod that

Mr MAR Stn: ARm• a trial of many weeks, it
affords me great pleasure to inform you that I
am highly delighted with the lightning rod you
placed upon my house at Bustleton. As far as
my chemical knowledge enables me to perform
an opinion, lam satisfied you have developed
the correct principles in the adaptation of rods to
protect property from destruction by lightning; as
soon as the advantages of your arrangements are
understood, I am convinced that few persons will
be found no reckless as to fail to avail themselves
of the protection afforded by your rods. Wishing
you all success in your enterprise,
