Where artificial heat Is employed, the

Places of assembly are notoriously dan

churches are especially guilty In this re
spect, for most of them were built to
accord with mediaeval architectural cus
toms. Expired air remains In the build
ing from week to week; It becomes chill
ed, and Its solid matter Is deposited on
walls and floors along with the moisture
it contains To prevent this, several large
windows, high up in the wall, should be
opened during and after the service
When the air Is thoroughly renewed, the
windows may be closed until the time
for the next service, during which period
artificial heat may warm the walls and
Theaters are. much better adapted to
ventilation; but too rarely are the win

to be saturated by humaiAemanatlons.
The consequence Is an .unpleasant odor
and a stuffj feel of the air. The highest
windows should be freely opener"for at
least hilf an hour after each perform

warmth of the furnace If necessary,

by the experiment of the National Elec

otherwise. Ho was permitted to provide

measurements of the output were made
for one month before and one month after
this was done. The result was an Increase

MORGAN'S NEW BANK
FINEST IN WORLD
Plan Show that It Will Occupy
$4,000,000 Lot ad Cost
The claim of the world's finest bank
has so long been put forward for vari
ous financial Institutions In New Tork
City as they have been erected from
time to time that the announcement of
another finest one Is likely to receive
only passing notice However, the new
building to be erected for J. P. Mor
gan on the same site where the old one
has stood for so many sears contains
so many unique and hitherto unheard
of features, as shown In the plans, that
It seems really entitled to the superla
tive. To begin with although It is to cost
$2,000,000 and stand on property valued at
4,000,000, It Is to be only four stories
high which means that each floor will
represent an Investment of Jl.500,000.
Archltectually, It will be one of the won
ders of the city since tho three upper
floors Instead of resting on steel gird
ers as Is the accepted practice will be
Jiung from great trusses just below the
root The feature ot the lowest base
ment Is the foundation of the vault,
which will be thirty feet square on the
Inside. The thickness of the walls will
be such that an army could work on it
fof a month with high explosives but
could not get through It. Inclnded in the
machlnerj of the building, which will be
located In the lower subbasement, will
be a ventilating svstem which will draw
air In at the roof, warm it, temper It.
wash It and distribute It to every room.
The third floor will have many novel fea
tures, including a barber shop and two
dining rooms for the officers The fourth
floor or top one, suggests a club more
than a hanking houc.
Along the Broad .Street side will be a
terrace 12 by 21 feet, tiled and half-covered
bv a roof and half bv awnings and
set about with trellises and growing
plants It cannot be seen from the street
and when screened not from nearby

Conservation of Child-life.
From tho Portland Orrcootan.
There are two kinds of race suicide.
One is the kind against which Col.
Roosevelt Inveighs The other Is the
kind which allows babies to be brought
into the world only to die War Is
being made against this latter kind in
New Tork City by means of pare milk
stations with attendant physicians and
nurses. Its good results are seen
In the annual report of the board of
health, which shows that last year the
death rate for babies decreased 6 per
cent, while for the entire population
the decrease was only 1 per cent.
That this decrease Is due to the agen
cies mentioned may safely be Inferred
from the fact that most of It was In
Manhattan, where preventive measures
are most thorough, while In Brooklyn,
where the work was extended beyond
Its original limits only last summer,
there was only a slight decrease, and
In the Bronx, which had only three
milk stations, there was none.
The inference Is plain that the high
death rate among Infants is prevent
able waste. To the community each
child that Is born Is an Investment, for
it Is a prospective useful, producing
citizen, and each death of a child is an
economic loss. It is useless to check
the one kind of race suicide by Increas
ing the birth rate unless we at the
same time check the other kind by
decreasing the death rate. In fact. It
would be better to bring Into the world
a smaller number of children and by
giving them better care bring them
all to maturity than to give birth to
a large number, half of whom would
die In Infancv.
Proper care of children, which car
ries with It care of mothers. Is our first
duty In conservation of human re
sources, without which conservation of
other resources Is vain.

SAM AIR AHD SUNSHINE.
The significance of climate and factor
in the treatment of disease Is generally
conceded. AlUtude, sunshine, salt air,
ocean breezes, and forest hlUs are expres
sions with which the practitioner now
and then attempts to conjure his jaded
patients. Not Infrequently the spell is
effective, bringing with It a renewal of
vigor and restoration of health Can ob
jective causes for climatic Influences be
discovered? What are the reasons for
the frequently observed beneficial effects
of an ocean voyage or a stay at the sea
side? Profs Zuntz, of Berlin, and Du
rlg, of Vienna, both well-known Euro
pean experts in physiology, who have de
voted much energy to the study of the
effects of high altitudes on man, have
given some consideration to these ques
tions. In the course of an ocean voyage
from Germany to the Canary Islands and
return they made careful observations on
the pulse rate, body temperature, &c
Despite the Invigorating nature of the
trip,, these fundamental bodily features
were not found altered In any detectable
uniform degree. This corresponds with
what has been observed In Investiga
tions at seaside resorts, where the travel
factor la excluded, but the atmosphere
conditions are similar In many ways,
says the Journal of the American Medi
cal Association. Neither such conditions,
nor the tropics, nor jet polar climates
effect any marked alteration in these
phvslologic functions. In any event, it
has been Impossible to demonstrate
changes that might be considered indica
tive ot a stimulating effect ot ocean cli
mates. A similar outcome has attended
the careful experimental Investigation of
the effect ot sunlight. An abundance
of direct sunlight. esDjrlally in some
of the widely visited health resorts, has
alwass claimed a due share or the credit
ascribed to the Invigorating climate. We
read of the divs of balmy sunshine.
Careful scientific observations have not
disclosed any bodily changes due to this
cause. Notwithstanding all of these nega
tive finding, however, no one can den
the usefulness of a change of climate,
despite the obscurity surrounding the
s'cret or its Influence on the individual
