conservative Europeans are content to

would consider it a sacrilegious extrava
gance to tear up the floors or walls of
their dwellings for the purpose of intro
ducing steam or water pipes. The cli
mate of F.iiglitml is damp and cold, but
tho almost universal way of wanning is
hy oHii liri'-plaucs of soft cool, which
usually develop much more smoke than
heat. Hot air or s tea in furnaces are
practically unknown, and tho only means
of boating railway carriages is by cans of
hot water placed iioii the flisor. Under
favorable circumstances, these will some
times prevent I ho solos of one's feet from
freezing, but their influence rarely ex

luxury of a private bath room, and the
