Too Long; Didn't Read

The usual receptacle for the fourth ball, when only three balls are used in the game of billiards, is placed at the side of the table. As this is both inconvenient and unsightly, a neat device, clearly shown in the annexed illustration, has been invented, which is intended to be attached to a gas fixture over the table. A plate or sign is also added on which the number of a table—in case several tables are employed, as in a billiard saloon—may be inscribed. The form and design of the arrangement may of course be varied in many ways.
