Ventilation of Publio Halls.
Editor of the VIrglnian-Pllot:
I want to commend your editorial in
to-day's Issue on "Ventilation of Pub?
lic Halls."
This morning I attended services at
the 'Baptist Church in Norfolk. -and
your words came up afresh during the
servites. 1 estimate I the auditorium :,s
containing about 100,000 cub.c feet of
space, and its Beating capacity as 1.0'JO.
Thus each person enjoyed a breathing
space or 100 cubic feet. Scientists tell
us that nn adult person will exhale
suflk'i lit carbonic acid gas at n single
breath to vitiate three cubic feet of a:r.
The vitality will be destroyed in throe
thousand cubic feet of air by a sinvle
nrldlt once every hour. Under this state
of facts short sermons are decidedly
advisable. The masses do not seem to
understand that carbonic acid gas, or
carbon dioxide, is a deadly poison.
In the story of the Bl ick Hole of
Calcutta wo have a frightful illustra?
tion of the deadly character of this
poison. On this occasion 146 English
prisoners were thrust Into a closed
dungeon IS feet square, thus allowing
to each person something more than
twenty cubic feet of air, allowing ten
feet as tin- height of the room. All hut
twenty-three of the prisoners died
from foul air before morning?really
poisoned by Inhaling corbonic acid gas.
But for the vitalizing effects wc get
while in the open air we could not 1 tng
survive the injuries wrought oil our
systt ms through the poisonous air we
breathe In churches, theaters, halls,
crowded cars and Imperfectly ventilat?
ed living apartments.
The well-known church yawn is due
to lack of fresh air. It is part of a
very interesting physiological process.
The blood carries waste matter found
in the body t<? the lungs, where through
the oxygen in the air we breathe; it
is converted into carbonic acid gas and ,
exhaled. Through til- process tbei
lungs cast out twelve ounces of pure|
carbon daily. "When our supply of fresh
air runs short the lungs do not re?
ceive an adequate supply of oxygen.
When the lungs run short of oxygen
tho waste material cannot he burned
ui> and converted Into carbonic acid
gas. The church yawn is not' due to
the effects of a dry sermon, hut to an
cfforl on the part of tho lungs to se?
cure rnoro oxygon. The reason wo c,o
t i sleep in church is that the blood
rapidly fills with waste matter and
systemlc poisoning sets In. because the
lungs nre powerless to carry on the
work of renovation for want of fresh
air.

Is founded upon wisp real estate Investments Is pretty generally conceded, hut (ho following statements from some of
t',:o well known millionaires' has Its value .is proving1 that claim, in an address on ?'The ?ospei of Wealth." Andrew
Carnegie said: "Fortunes do exist and will continue to lie made hereafter by the Increase in the valuu of real estate more
than by all other cadscs combined."
Senator Jones, of Nevada, speaking of the growth of ^reat fortunes, said: There Is only one sure way to get rich and
that Is to buy wlh.it. is called "on:., de" r( i! es la to und hang onto It null It becomes "Inside" properly. Tho great for?
tunes of tho country have been made in this nay, 1 tell you, young man, no investment on earth is so safe, so sure, so
certain to enrich Its owner as undeveloped n 11 estate. I always advise my young friends to plant their savings In realty
near a growing city, riui lia.se a good si/., i tract and wait for suio and certain returns of tfio growth of tills wonderful .
country of ours to make you masters of your own fortunes." . _ ? ?
Andrew J. Drcxcl says: "I bcllevo that thr.-e Is no m?rc certain or reliable property to be held than real estate."
Mr?. Hetty Green, the richest woman In A.ncrlca, worth $00,000,000, says that It was exclusively in real estate transac?
tions that all uf her imiftense fortune was made.
Tho n-b?v? are strong and pointed testimonials fr m persons who have made their fortunes, but thoso who rend this
advertisement must use judgment in purchasing. Notice how swiftly Port Norfolk properly is becoming "Inside prop?
erty." oii lots of the Port Norfolk Investment Company have been sold tho past week, and some of them will be im?
proved with modern dwellings In tho very near future.
