when equipped with ordinary glass on the larger shaft. The cost of construction of the building would be less per cubic foot of contents, and the renting floor area, in the case under consideration, would be increased more than twenty-two thousand square feet, this being a ten story building.
    By the use of Luxfer Prisms, story heights may be reduced and a further savings effected in the first cost of the building, again giving the architects a greater latitude in the proportion of the building. In a building 135 feet high an additional story can be secured. The reduced floor height will obtain more light by means of Luxfer Prisms, than the original floor height could possible secure by the use of plate glass.
    By the use of Luxfer Prisms the gloom and dampness of basements are dispelled, and the income producing space of the building increased by at least another story. The use of Luxfer Prisms not only gives increase of renting area and reduces light bills, but it renders the rooms in a new and beautiful manner far more desirable for occupancy and use, and a better quality and greater quantity of work is done every day. Thus it is possible for an owner to rent those portions of the building which, under other conditions, would be almost useless, and for the better portions of the building to obtain increased rents. This is proven by the fact that, as the records of the Luxfer Companies show, in more than two hundred cases where leases have been made, the tenants, having seen the effect of Luxfer Prisms elsewhere, have demanded that they be put in as a condition of renewing the lease; and in other cases, as the records of the companies show, the landlords have admitted that their rents had been increased at least 25 per cent on account of the use by them of Luxfer Prisms. The owner of undesirable premises can have his property made remunerative at comparatively small expense. Tenants of offices, stores, factories or apartments can reduce expenses, transact business more satisfactorily, and can enjoy greater freedom from disease through the agency of Luxfer Prisms. The best interest of the owner of a building is the interest of every good architect and of all good architecture. Luxfer Prisms have brought to the hand of every architect valuable opportunity
