General Pleasanton of “Blue
Glass” fame is dead. There are
plenty of young mothers, readers
of The Tribune who have grown
up since “blue glass” became a
national craze and can tell their
little ones of it only by hearsay.

sensation in the country. Gen
eral Pleasanton had a theory that
the rays of the sun coming through
blue glass had peculiar health
giving properties. People put
blue glass in their doors and
windows and skylights; they put
blue glass in their conservatories
and in their stables. Invalids sat
| under blue glass and experienced
wonderful cures—and to-day the
craze is as dead as idolatry in the
land. Thus wags the world awar.
