Replying to your favor of the 18th inst., we
sent you, under date of September 1st, through Mr. Illsley, the
"We have delayed answering your inquiry as to
the satisfaction we are getting from the Luxfer Prisms, in our stores,
until they were all in place, and we could get in all our lighting bills
for the month of August. The result is more than satisfactory, as you
will see by the report. Our total lighting bills (arc, incandescent and
gas) for the months of July and August, for the year 1896, were $360.08;
for the months of July and August, 1897, $131.99--a net saving of $228.09,
or more than 60 per cent of our total bills for the corresponding months
last year. When you take into consideration, in connection with this,
the facility with which business is transacted, and the satisfaction all
our employes and customers have in doing business in a daylight store,
you will see that we have reason to be satisfied."
From the above statement, you will see that, from
a purely business standpoint, it has proved itself to be a splendid
Very truly yours,
