It is accompanied by a folder giving the Rule numbers of the Chapin-Stephens Company as compared with the former numbers of the H. Chapin’s Son Company and Stephens & Co. whose interests have been consolidated in the Chapin-Stephens Company.

It will thus be observed that the former H. Chapin's Son Company‘s numbers and Stephens’ numbers have been given up, and the old or original H. Chapin numbers used by the founder of the business at Pine Meadow adopted in their stead.

These numbers being also the numbers used by other Rule manufacturers. All Rules of a given style made by different concerns are now known by the same catalogue number.

The company advised us that they are now busy on their whole line and are rapidly adjusting the machinery of the two former plants to the requirements of the new concern, thus putting themselves in a position to turn out their goods rapidly and take care of their patrons with satisfactory promptness.
