MR. RICHARD BEAUMONT.

Mr. Richard Beaumont is the head of the Beaumont Valve and Hydrant Works of Kankakee, Ill. His portrait accompanies this notice. At the recent New York hydrant test in the corporation yard of this city he exhibited the patent Beaumont gate hydrant, for which the following advantages are claimed: (1) When open, a perfect cylindrical uniform unobstructed waterway of the same diameter as the main to which it is to be attached; (2) on account of the valve and operating mechanism being outside of the water way, the danger of the water freezing to the shell of the hydrant on first entering is removed.
