Tlie Lamp TVitli
and Without Sliade
It is the only lamp burning kerosene oil whicH will
maintain a Same of uniform candle power until the oil is en
tirely exhausted. In other lampsy as the oil is consumed, the
candle power of the flame decreases. Hitchcock Lamp is 26'
candle power by photometric test. Any good grade of kerosene
can be used in it; and it is the only artificial light which gfyes5
to tinted fabrics their proper color at night,f neither gas or
electric light will do this.
By way of comparison we will say the. regular central
draft kerosene (Rochester) lamp, with a wick 3 inches irr cir
cumference, will give about 28 candle pover with a, rorfsump
tion of oil costing S 1-4 cents for ia hours, and producing aii
immense amount of heat. The
becomes low while the Improved Hitchcock is uniform3 till all
the oil is used, and the cost for 10 hours burning will not exr
ceed 3 cents Besides- there will be Utile or' no heat Burning
both- lamps for 5 hours per day for o'n'e year a saving of about
$f.ox will be made in the cost of oil in lavor of tKe HifchcbcK
