They are made by a fine old house that has
won and held Us fame by everlastingly-proving
that nothing Is impossible. ,
- You remember the day before good train
lighting when the conductor came for your
ticket, holding a lantern on. his arm. That
lantern and Its mates had to suddenly go out
side, for signaling purposes to be met by rain,
cold wind and, for a long time, its principal
condition was, with "broken, smoked globe, al
most useless. The Corning Glass Works said,
"We'll make you lantern globes that will stand
the strain." And they did.' '
Then railroad yards become more complex
and signal lights grew in importance. The glass
face of the signal lamps couldn't break without
Inviting disaster. Said the boss of the Cornln
Glass Works, "We'll make you lamp fronts that
won't break, and we'll make them so that they
will not diffuse the rays of light, but hold them
close as a close-shooting gun holds the shot."
Signal lights are strong, without glare are
not annoying to the engineer's eyes.
Then came the percolator the coffee pot in which you see the
water boll up Into the glass top. No glass top would hold otherwise
the percolator was the "best coffee machine "
