A New Gas Light
Just last week we spoke of
Murray soon becoming a genuine
manufacturing town, and from
Hie developments of tho past week
we know it. S. (). Pitman is now
in line with a new invention that
if it proves as successful as he
thinks for, will make Murray a
genuine manufacturing lown. It
is a new acetylene gas plant, and
it sure produces the very tlnest
light known to the arlillcial plan
of illumination. He will produce
a plant with a tlfty-light capacity
for the same money that other
companies are placing one wun
half the capacity. Sam now has
one lank creeled for the tryoul
and it is working lo perfection
It is Mr. Pitman's intention to
make the machines in their pres
ent shop until the business in
creases to the necessity of
erecting a new building, which
will be done in due time. The
new light is a success beyond all
doubt and will sure meet with
great demand when properly in
troduced on the market.
