Illuminating Engineers Hnve Done
Much to Make Them Brighter.
Kycs Arc Naturally Affected 1" Too
Little nml Ton Much IilRht nmt
the Cuatomera liny Accordingly.
Omaha Electric Light & Power Co.
Bo very, very few merchants know any
thing at all about the natural lawn of
Illumination that they frequently allow
a lighting system to be Installed which
can never be quite satisfactory except at
excessive cost.
In wiring a private resldenco considera
tions of comfort and absence of eye
strain receive far less attention than the
savins of a few dollars In wiring costs,
yet a lighting scheme which will be satis
factory In all respocts need not cost any
more than one which transgresses every
rule of scientific Illumination. It Is more
a question of the position and height of
lamps nnd tho type of reflector or shade
employed than of the number of lamps
Installed. Costly fittings may be Just
as unsuitable for their purposo aa the
cheapest, while a little thought and intel
ligence may secure for no greater outlay
a system of lighting which will be scien
tifically correct.
There Is ample room for missionary
work among shopkeepers who are the
most obvious sinners against scientific
principles of Illumination. It may not al
ways be easy to convince a private house
holder that the position and type of fit
tings he proposes to employ aro unsuit
able, but the shopkeeper should be more
amenablo to argument since the success
of his business In most crboi depends
upon the attractiveness of the display In
showroom and window. A walk through
the main business streets of any largo
town In the evening will convince any ono
that few traders know anything about tho
science of Illumination. There may be
ample light often there is far too much
but the lamps aro placed incorrectly, and
merely cause glare without achieving th
object for which they exist vis., to
throw a good light upon the goods dis
played. Many shopkeepers Imagine that
they attract custom by suspending flams
arcs as close as they can be squoexed to
gether along the frontage of tho shop
within seven or eight feet of the pave
ment. They only succeed In half blind
ing pedestrians and preventing many
from seeing even what trade Is being
carried on. Others crowd the front of the
window inside with strings of naked
lamps, the glare from which effectually
prevents passersby from seeing the goods
behind them, as a rule, except with con
siderable discomfort. Jewelers are ox-
tremely fond of this system of shop
window and show-case lighting, forget
ting that the reflection from gold and
sliver objects Is a footor to' be guarded
against rather .than aggravated by the
presence of unprotected points of light
all over the window. It la not light that
Is wanted, so much as 'adequate and cor
rect Illumination- of the objects offered
for sale, and the valuo of a shop window
to attract business may be increased
onormously by a carefully thought out
lighting system for the hours of dark
ness, v
One Man for Whom
the Electrical Fan
Has Lost Its Charm
Thtro Is said to be a man for whom
tho electric fan tins prnctlculty caused to
be a source of comfort. For sevornl
years, lio said, he accepted the electric
fan as an unobtrusive factor In hot
weather hygiene, reports tho Chicago
livening Post. There It stood, across the
room, noiselessly, or nearly so, and ns
unobtrusive as tho paper on tho wall.
Tho office boy turned It on In tho morn,
ing and tho Janitor switched It off at
night. During the day Its existence nover
crossed his mind save when It blew the
wisp of hair on his forehead hard enough
to hurt.
Hut now thoso good old days hnve
passed for him, since a tempter whin
pered In his ear that It would be Inter
esting to throw an egg Into the electric
fan. He say ho had no Intention of
throwing an egg Into tho electric fan.
It would not be practical and, he strongly
suspects, It would not bo pretty, llut the
Idea of a wild catastrophe which would
follow such an exploit has fascinated
him, and the electric fan has ceased to
be the unobtrusive servant whloh It used
to be. Like tho "Punch, brother,
punch," of olden days, It has becoma tho
master of his hot weather mind and re
sists all attempts at subjugation.
It Is still Impracticable for him to toss
an egg at a neloctrlo fan, but if there
Is In literature anywhere or In sociology
a vivid description of what happens when
an egg strikes an electric fan that de
scription may serve tq restore an erst
