The Pittsburg Meter Company.

As usual, the Pittsburg Meter company called in its traveling representatives from their various fields of activity and held its regular annual convention of its traveling representatives on January 3 and 4. In spite of the financial depression which occurred in the latter part of 1907, the company greatly increased its volume of business over the previous year, and the prospects for 1908 indicate a still greater increase. The Keystone meter, which has been on the market for so long and is so favorably known, has been adopted for use in practically every large city and town throughout the country, while the Eureka meter has made very’ rapid progress and is now being used by hundreds of cities and towns with the most satisfactory results.

THE PITTSBURG METER COMPANY.

About this time every year, the Pittsburg Meter company holds a meeting, at which its officers and traveling representatives have a heartto-heart talk on all matters relating to its business. This year particular attention was given to the Eureka water meter, and all its various details of design and construction were taken up and discussed. It was stated at the convention that, while this particular class of meter had not been long before the waterworks people, its sales were very satisfactory and rapidly increasing. It was also reported that wherever placed the Eureka gave the most gratifying results. As to the Keystone, its sales for the year 1906 showed a very substantial increase over those for the previous year, while, the orders already booked and in prospect indicate that the year 1007 will place the Keystone in the highest notch in comparison with the number of meters sold hv other companies.
