The application of greater or less pres- suro causes the mercury to spread more or less over the mica dielectric and to produce greater or less capacity effect. The mercury is en- v tirely Inclosed, eliminating all possibility of dust and dirt, and. therefore, leakage and noises. It is claimed that this, .new conclen-er will stand more than 5.000 volts, to t h a t it can be used for low-power transmission ss well as for receiving.

It is more expert because of highly speciaUzed facilities. It it more exact in its systematized and audited accounting. It is more assured in its independence of any single fife. A trust company never dies, is not taken ill or disabled, does not move away. Its officers are always accessible. Another advantage of trust company handling of financial affairs is the elasticity of its service. A customer can use as much of it as ne likes, as long as he likes, in any department he likes. He is never in the position of having a financial secretary whom, for reasons of sentiment he cannot dismiss.
