The firm manufactures printing and seaside specialties which include trays, book marks, etc., and also deals in all classes of aluminum novelties. At the last Mechanics’ Fair in Boston, Owens Brothers had the exclusive right to sell aluminum goods, and this summer they will have a booth at Crescent Beach, a summer resort, of Boston. The booth will contain 80 square feet of floor space, and will be open from June Ist to the last week of September. Something novel recently manufactured by Owens Brothers, were some aluminum cards, on one side of which were printed the portrait of Edward P. Shaw, a candidate for Congress from the Sixth Congressional District of Massachusetts, and on the back of the card was Mr. Shaw's record in public life. Owens Brothers believe that this is the first time aluminum has entered the political arena.

NOVELTIES FOR I896

During the past months novelty dealers and manufacturers have been so busy disposing of goods that they have had no time to originate new designs, but now that the holiday season is over with, there are prospects of returning ingenuity. The Scovill Manufacturing Co., the W. H. Kemp Co., the Aluminum Novelty Co., Reymond & Gottlob, and other manufacturers and dealers, intend to put new goods on the market. It has been the custom of novelty producers to await the appearance of something novel in silver and then copy it in aluminum, but it is now time that aluminum should be a leader. Put your wits together and bring out something new regardless of what has been done in other metals.
