FROM COLD TO SUDDEN WARMTH.
The annual subject of "catching sui
ild" is causing its usual theorizing,
id again we are being reminded of (
e danger of overheated rooms. Few jy
em to realize that the danger is not wj.
i much going into a very cold tern- gU]
jrature; but lies in the passing from ....
ie cold to a warm apartment. Yc
It has long been u subject of com- pr
aiut on the part of some Europeaus ger
at American houses are overheated. cjj,
is also claimed that one result of C0|
is overheating is that Americans are g0,
ore subject to lung or throat diseases m8
an they would be if their houses aj|
ere kept at a lower temperature dur- 25
g the winter. This is probably true ma
) to a certain point; but there are m
me ways in which the danger can be wj,
'oided even where there the temper- co,
ure of the residence is not low. ^
It seems to be the general idea that jje
e person who passes from an over- agg
sated room into the cold air of the ju
reets is in serious danger of catching OQ(
Id. Consequently muny persons wj;
ay indoors in the winter time, be- 0f
use they do uot like to run the risk taj
catching cold by going out. In this
ey often make a decided mistake, j
cause the majority of colds are not 29
ught by going from a warm temper- g0
ure into a cold temperature, provi- jjjg
id the person makiug the change in- a?(
ilges in reasonable exercise aud does 0f
?t remain out doors too long. The wj|
al danger of catching cold comes jD?
ion the return into a warm room.
As a matter of fact, many physicians sjj(
ild to the belief that the stimulation co|
the circulation and nerves caused pn
' a warm room often prevents a per- g
n from catching cold when going into '
temperature that is in the ueighbor- Qf
iod of zero. The danger rather Qa
mes in the sudden rush of a person, ....
illed by inteuse cold, into an excess ^
ely warm room. If a vestibule or ne*
tiling room were maintained in most for
uses at a temperature of about 60 wjj
65 degrees, and a pause were made gi.(
ere after coming in from a walk in ou)
e winter air, colds would not he so ^
quent in this country.
The suggestion is worth heeding,
d it is of special importance to teach mQ
e children the danger of rushing di- fr0
utly from the cold outdoor air to wa
trm fingers and toes over hot stove qjj

A Good Paint.?Having recently De
paiot several large buildings, I en- Gr
led seriously into the questiou of un Ira
onomical paint. An old and exper- Ke
need paiuter advised me to use hall col
netian red, half yellow ochre, mixed nai
ith raw oil. He said this would crc
ake the most duruble of all paints. Crc
e said this mineral puint would har- ser
in, and was almost like a stone in 4.2
coming impervious to the elements, for
iherefore ordered a barrel of linseed res
I at 30 cents per gallon, and u 110- coi
>und keg of Venetian red, the same cai
nount of yellow ochre, both of which air
me in a dry and powdered condition, tra
id cost 1$ cents per pound. It re- A
lired only one-half of this oil and vva
lint to cover two large buildings, one rer
lilding being 100 feet square and 24 jm
et high, and the other beiug 40 by 24 ab<
et high. I was astonished to find Joi
e buildings so thoroughly covered Fa
' one coat of paint. Anyone would in
ppose at least two coats had been pu
inlied. I think this one coat will wh
ind several years without an addi- He
>nal coat. My plan is lo let the Kg!
lilding stand for one year, until this art
st coat becomes entirely hardened, the
id then to apply a second coat. I Be
a told that these two coats will last pic
i years. If so, this is certainly the act
eapest paint for farm buildings a li
