White LtQht Best.
White light seems to be the most
comfortable for the eye. In tests of
the effects ofvynrlous lllumlnnnts' C. E.
Ferree nnd J. Rand, as described to
the American Illumlnntlng society,
have used kerosene lamps and various
Incandescent lamps and It appears
from the results thnt the color of the
light has a marked effect ,on eye
fatigue. Willi the white light of the
tungsten lamp there wns the least loss
to the worker from need of resting
the eyes. The fatigue was somewhnt
greater with the yellow light of the
carbon lamp or kerosene lamp, and
greatest of all with the tungsteir lamp
having n blue bulb.
