The firm claim to produce a light that equals gas, and at a less cost. The light is produced by means of a hmp, the reservoir of which i 3 supplied with gas oil, which burns with a clearness and evenness that are guarantees of its merit. The supply is regulated from one to twenty-four candle power by means of the burner, which is of the simplest construction imaginable. The main features in these gas oil lamps are: no wick, no trimming, no glasses, and freedom from the usual troubles arising from other lamps The oil is virtually a gas and can be supplied at the rate of 4s 6d per gallon, 5s worth of which equals 1,000 feet of lighting power. < >ne remarkable fact in connection with the oil is that it does not burn wood or other material if accidentally set fire to, but blazes for a few seconds and volatilises. It is a powerful purifier, and is also said to be a valuable food preserver. The utility of these lamps, which can be supplied in qualities from the stable to the drawing room, are well suitpd for railway platforms, hotels, etc., giving a brilliant light, which is a great desideratum in country districts ; added to these traits, the lamp whilst lighted can be carrifd about with impunity. With each lamp instructions are sent, and if these are fully attended to, there is no possible fear of danger. The firm purpose when fully in working order to provide carriages, cabs, and other vehiclf-s with their Umps. As a recommendation, it may be mentioned that his Excellency Lord Canington, the Governor of New South Wales, uses the oil that generates the gas in his carriage lamps, and finds it give? every satisfaction.
