It is not generally known that the inventor is Mr R F. Randell, Llanelly (brother of Mr David Randell, M.P.), and we are glad to find that the patent has developed into a gigantic concern. TC-day, however, A limited liability cocpany is being floated to further develop the business, and the shere capital is set down at £ 15,000 in Li shares, and stimulated by tho bright prospects of the undertaking, numerous applications for shares are being received. An interesting feature connected with the new company is the fact that Mr Randell has given to his employees a few hundred phases according to the period each work- man has been in his employ. Mr David Randell, M.P.. ia solicitor, and the Metropolitan Bank the bankers to the Patent Safety Candle Grip Company.
