A well known doctor says that
the fumes of kerosene when the
lamp is turned Jow, is likely to cause,
diptheria. The ; New York board
of trade a few years ago decided
that to this more than any other
cause, the prevalence of this disease
was to be attributed. This is given
as accounting for the fact that
diptheria generally begins to spread
with the advent of short days and
long nights. Children dislike to go
to bed in' the dark, and the kind
mother lets the lamp remain in the
bedroom usually turning down the
flame so that the light shall not
keep the child awake. Many bed
rooms are thus semi-lighted all
night, and the windows being closed
or raised but slightly, the atmos
pheric condition simply deathly. A
turned down kerosene lamp is a
magazine of deadly gas that the
