Dear Sirs,


We again bring before your notice the "Best" Incandescent Light that is used in several Boroughs and Shires for street lighting.


The light is equal to 100 Candle Power and strongor than the ordinary City Incandescent street light, yet the cost of burning is less than one,third of a penny per hour - is reliable in all weathers, and is used in the Suburbs of Melbourne as well as several Boroughs and Shires in the Country, who keep adding to the number already in use, proving that they give satisfaction.

Where you are at present burning kerosene, and have lanterns erected, it is a simple matter of adding the "Best" Burner and Resevoir. The illustration of street lantern show hereon will give you an idea of all that is necessary.


We would be pleased if ou would communicate with us, and write for Catalogue, when further particulars and references might be given.


Yours truly
