It seems almost incredible, but less than a hun dred years ago — to be exact, in the year 1819 a German newspaper published an article strongly opposing tha lighting of streets. The writer of the article denounced the artificial Illumination of streets after sunset because "God had decreed that darkness should follow light, and mortals had no right to turn night into day." He declared that people did not require any light at night outside of their houses, and argued that the lighting of street lamps Imposed an unneces sary tajc on the people. He also claimed that the lamps poisoned the air (out of doors!) and affected the health of delicate persons, while public lighting would encourage healthy persons to stay out o* doors after dark and thereby to catch ccld Btre«t lighting, in hie Judgment, would lower the standard of morality and remove the fear of darkneas, which alone prevents weakminded individuals from com mitting crimes. The lighting of streets would make robbers bold and cause horses to shy. It would also reduce patriotism as evinced In special night nomination during public festivals, because If streets were lighted every night these special func tion* would love their effect All of which goe* tc prove that the calamity croaker ha* not always b«ea '«&« ffifiCST -'-J^J. species.— Gu Loft* the Stevens Hou?e during the week.
