Fresh Air In the Churches.
Commonly in tho churches, after the
morning services are over, every door and
window is shut, and the careful sexton keeps
them shut till night. The consequence is
the air is dead nml putrid, and every body
is tlrowsy. it the weather is ooltf, and tires
are needed, some' of the tipper sash ought
