New Process of Staining Glass.
The art of coloring glass has been
lost and refound, jealously guarded
and maliciously stolen so many time
in the history of civilization that it
seems almost impossible to say any
thing new on glass staining. Yet a
process has been discovered for ma

which Is a departure from anything
known at the present time. What the
Venetians and the Phoenicians knew
of It we cannot tell.
The glass first receives its design In
mineral colors and the whole is then
fired in a heat so Intense that the col
oring matter and the gloss ore lndls
solubly fused. The most attractive
feature ot this method Is that the sur
face acquires a peculiar pebbled char
acter In the heat, so that when the
glass is In place the lights are delight
fully soft and mellow.
