          The subscriber has purchased the right to Loveless' patent portable gas generator, and is prepared to furnish all the different forms of chandeliers, pendants, brackets and lamps &c., for this unequalled light, which may be regarded as one of the most valuable improvements of the day.  By its means the luxury of gas light is afforded to all who may desire it, and at less expense than it can be obtained by those living in the vicinity of gas works.  The light is equally as brilliant as coal gas, and all of the elegance, neatness, cleanliness, and safety of gas is obtained by it.  It is applicable to all forms of Chandeliers and is admirably adapted to the lighting of churches, dwellings &c.  Its superiority is such that it need only be known to be brought into general use.  I have on hand a large stock of Chandeliers, Pendants, Brackets &c., which are portable; all of which I offer to the public at the lowest rates.  Call and see my new and fashionable styles before purchasing elsewhere. -- Salesroom in south east corner of public square Shelbyville Ind.
