to lend themselves to broad architectural treatment, giving the architect an opportunity to preserve the beauty and simplicity of the design. It is also a fact that Luxfer Prism plates more effectively resist wind pressure, and are also much stronger to resist the action of hail and flying fragments than plate glass. If subjected to an extraordinary shock at any point, instead of shattering or destroying the entire plate, the injury may be confined to one or a few prism lenses which can be easily replaced. Thus these prism plates are very valuable for building fronts, and the danger from falling glass is minimized, particularly in the case of high winds. Once installed, they are as enduring as the structure itself.
    While these prism plates, as elsewhere explained, vastly increase the interior illumination, they may be used as a screen to prevent persons within from looking out, and also to prevent those without from looking in, and thus they are extremely valuable in cases where these conditions are desired, as, for example, in workshops where it is desired that the employes should not be distracted by what passes on the street without. In buildings, where the view is unpleasant or disagreeable, its use may provide not only a means of shutting out unpleasant sights, but a beautiful and interesting substitute; in the case of schools, where the children are likely to be distracted by the street sights; in bath rooms; in apartment houses, where the windows of rooms are placed in close proximity to each other; in shops where the out look is disagreeable, and where, nevertheless, it is desirable that the windows should be highly attractive; in stores where the interiors are finely decorated, and where the rear windows open on alleys, Luxfer Prisms maybe introduced filling the entire openings, the design on the prism harmonizing with the other interior decoration and reclaiming the rear portion of the store for business purposes. For instance, in one case, a shoe store, the entire rear is now used for the sale of ladies' fine shoes, and this portion of the store is filled with customers who otherwise, owing to the disagreeable features of the alley as seen through the ordinary glass, would not frequent this portion of the store. The clerks and bookkeepers who formerly occupied this portion
