MISCELLANEOUS


| November/December 1989


Some time ago the Reflector, C.H. Wendel, acquired an exensive run of a weekly entitled 'La Chronique Industrielle', a weekly magazine published at Paris, France. Especially during the 1890s, many magazines used laid-in advertisements, separate pieces which could be saved for future reference. This advertisement in the May 13, 1899 issue illustrates the Charon engine built at Paris. This model was available for use with either gas or petroleum fuel; and fuel consumption was guaranteed to be within specific limits.
