It seemed so simple to turn Calt ium Carbide into

"Acetylene Machines" were invented, patented, and
marketed for the purpose, by about as many different
Well, the thing to be expected certainly happened !
About 5.V of these "Acetylene Machines" had been
invented and sold by people who knew more about
Tiimare than they did about lias-making.
The "Calcium Carbide" was all right all the time,
but 5.to of the machines for turning it into Gas were
all wrong all the time.
So Acetylene (ias "got a bad name." though it is
clear enough noir that it never deserved it at any time.
It was like selling Wood Steves to bum Hard Coal
in, and then blaming the Coal for nut burning.
Lots of things happened to grieve the Owners of

Of course, a gun will eo off unexpectedly, now and
then, if the trigger be pulled by a person who "didn't

Hut, that's no fault of the Ammunition is it?
Well, finally the Insurance Companies got after
tlice sto odd makes nf "Acetylene Machines" that
wouldn't Acetlate, ami the Insurance Hoard made an
investigation of all Generators that were submitted 'to
Then, nut of the doo odd "Machines" patented,
onlv about 70 were "permitted" by the Insurance Hoard
to be used.
Oh, what a howl was there!
Hv "permitted" I mean that lrV Insurance Boarfl
was willing that any building should be Insured, with
out extra charge, which used any nnf of tl rse 70
AccHlenc Generators it had found safe, ami effective,
just as it pcrnntud houses to be piped for City lias,
or wired for Klcctricity, under proper conditions.
Now, the Insurance Companies cii'if to know
whether or not these To different makes of Acetylene
Generators were absolutely Safe to use.
Because, they have to pay the bills, if Fire or F'x
plosion occurs, from any one of the Acetylene Gener
ators they authonc.
And, here's a proof of their good judgment.
Though there arc now Two Million people using
Acetylene Light in America, there have only been four
l'ires from it in one year, against Fires from
Kerosene and Gasoline.
There have also been 4?) Fires front l'.lectricity,

Today. Acetylene Light is a full thud eheaper than
Kerosene Light, or Gasoline 1 ight. per Candle Power.
It is not more than half the price of l.kitric Light,
nor three fourths that of City Gas.
