Highbrow “Lights Out”

Highbrow “Lights Out”

BOSTON used to have the reputation of being the country’s most “highbrow” city; but this doubtful honor now appears fo be in grave danger of falling fo New York.

  • You can imagine the surprise of New Yorkers the other day fo discover posted to front doors of all office buildings, factories, stores and what not, signs reading:
  • “Illumination is required to be extinguished before these premises are closed to business.”

  • Translated that simply says: “All lights must be put out before closing.” Why didn’t they say so?
  • If FIRE ENGINEERING were edited in the style of illumination is required fo be extinguished, if would scarcely serve the useful purpose if now does, would if!
