New and Modern Devices.
The display of the New Gaynor Electric Company made at the National Chief’s convention held at Milwaukee showed considerable advancement made in modern fire alarm devices daring the past few years. The exhibit was elaborate and tastily put up, consisted of one combined gong and indicator, one sixteen-inch gong, one key starting box, two of their perfect non-interfering fire alarm boxes, one chain drop, one standard galvanometer, one continuous ringing bell, one set of small stable doors and many other appliances used in connection with fire alarm telegraph.
All the instruments shown by the New Gaynor Electric Company were handsomely finished, showing both good workmanship and thoroughness of the system throughout. Every detail seems to have been worked out carefully and with the view of increased rapidity and efficiency. Many compliments were paid the Gaynor system by visiting chiefs and others, and the showing made by the company was very creditable, while quite a few orders were booked by their general agent, H. H. Whitacre, who explained in a pleasing way the workings of the system.
