New Mirror Iarented by S. W. Eddy
Reflects Exact Tints of
Hoaun Face.
I Jncoln. Nobr , March I Robert Burns
"Wad some power tbe glttle gle us to
see ourselves as others see us" has been
answered by Seth W. Eddy, of Lincoln
Mr. Eddy's achievement consists In tho
production of a mirror that actually re
flects a person In every particular. Its
marvelous property consisting in Its
faithful reproduction of flesh tints.
Glass used for mirrors contains enough
green and blue tints, as a result of pres
ent methods of manufacture, to rob the
human countenance of those hues. Mr
Eddy's InvenUon cons'sts merely of the
addition to the plate glass making form
ula of a pink pigment that neutralizes
these two tints and enables the user to
actually see himself as others see him
Mr. Eddy was visiting his old home,
a little town In New England, when,
passing a church Just after a severe
wind storm, he saw that a tree limb
had broken a stained glass window. The
fragments lay on tho ground One of
the pieces bhowed only a hint of color.
Turning It cdgcwa)s he saw that It was
a light but beautifully tinted pink. He
carried It home and laid It on a hlghl)
polished stiver card tra) As it lay it
was a perfect mln-os. The countenance
that looked out at him from it was so
different from the one that was reflect
ed In i mirror above him that he was
startled The familiar reflection from
tho common mirror showed an apparent
ly anaemic countenance, pale, with ) el
low ish dlscoloratlons, the ejes dull, and
the hair lifeless The Improvised mir
ror disclosed a countenance suffused
with a pink flush and hnlr that looked
distinctly alive
niffleult lo Gel Tint.
Hut this phenomenon was but the real
izations of theories that Mr. Eddy had
long held A relative who had made
Important discov cries along other lines
advised him, to patent the Idea Accord
ingly he prepared specifications and
sent them to Washington His claim
was rejected.
Mr Eddy immediately filed revised
specifications, and for three )ears con
ducted a correspondence with the Patent
Commissioner It ended In the Patent
Examiner admitting tho soundness of
Eddy's contentions, but asked him to
submit for Inspection a mirror made
after his formula.
This proved to bo difficult. He had
trouble In getting glass of a light pink
shade Manufacturer after manufacturer
to whom he applied had never heard of
any such glass. He wrote to Englt iJ
and to Continental manufacturers, only
to receive the same answer
Eventuall) one manufacturer In a
small town In Germany wrote tint he
had produced such a glass minv years
before, and thought he could do It again.
He did produce It.

had them grouped, polished, and silver
