Trees and Health.
It haw been noted that the first set*
tiers in heavily wooded sections of the
country have generally been healthy,
despite their many privations. The
reason for this is that the trees and
plants -of all kinds possess the power
of absorbing poisoned air from decay
ing vegetation, besides which the
emanations from evergreens and the
smoke from burning resinous woods
are noted for the relief they give to
those suffering from pulmonary dis
New heavily wooded countries, as
already noted, are the most healthy
for settlers, and they continue so for
some years, as only a small portion of
the forest can be cleared away each
year. After the forest is iemoved and
sunlight is admitted, the soil fills
rapidly with vegetable mold, which
decomposes more rapidly than it cltu
be absorbed by the scant vegetation,
and as a result the atmosphere is ren
dered impure and malafia becomes a
common complaint. In-view of these
facts, people are beginning to under
stand the value of trees as disease-ab
sorbing and health-giving agents.
Naturally this leads to the questien as
to what trees are best for protection
On Long Island and in New Jersey
there are localities surrounded and
hemmed in with- pitch pines, which
are famed for their curative qualities
in consumption, and the pines are
thus indicated as valuable surround
ings in pulmonary complaints. It
would seem reasonable to suppose that
trees having the largest leaves and the
most of them would be the best for
this purpose, as such trees would un
doubtedly have the most absorbing
. power. We have seen the eucalyptas
tree, mentioned as of special value, as
a purifier of the atmosphere. -Hall's

about Asyncril us. Phlegon. Hermas, Patro

For what were they distinguished? Abso

would have been brought out by the apostle.
If they had been very intrepid or opulent or
hirsute or musical of eadence or crass of
style or in anywise anomalous, that feature
would have been caught by the apostolic
camera. But they were goo.l people. because
Paul sent to them his high Christian regards.

well to Iurn our backs for a little while upon
the distinguished and conspicuous pecple of
the Bible anl consider in our text the seven

in twisting garlands for remarkables and
building thrones for magnates and sculptur
