Lights play an important part on ft
the stage of the nwdern theater, and it
they have many us'es. The spot light, G
for instance, is employed to cast a cir- i
cle of light upon the stage where a sin
gle person is to be brought into espe- E
cial prominence. It consists of an arc
electric light inclosed in a cylindrical h
hood about the diameter of a stove
pipe and provided at the open end r
with a condenser lens for the purpose tl
of concentrating the rays upon a small
A flood light is an arc in a rectangu
lar box painted white upon the inside di
to serve as a reflector. It is supposed f3
to flood the stage with light; hence its _
Bunch lights are clusters of gas or
incandescent lights either arranged a
within a reflector or exposed naked. iu
They are used back of a scene behind B
doorways, where light is needed off a
the stage to represent the illumina
tion of that part of a dwelling not e1
shown. For the same purpose "strip" tc
lights are used-rows of incandescent
lights fastened to a strip of wood pro- e
.vided with a hook, by which it may
be hung to the back of a scene when b
"Side" lights are incandescent lights
arranged on either side of the prosce
nium arch. Sometimes they are built:
within the arch or they are arranged
to be swung outward when the cur- B
tan is raised. bi
The footlights are familiar to all,
and the "border" lights are those hung sZ
over the stage directly above the seen-,
ery. shutting off the top of the stage. h
These are arranged in a trough like an G
inverted "U" to cast their light down
upon the stage. These are practically
all of the lights used upon the stage of
a house, though magic lanterns are
employed at times for the simulation
of water effects, moonlight ripples and
lightning. The old fashioned calcium,
using the oxyhydrogen gas, is so sel
dom employed ii the modern theater
as to call for no comment. te
