Another Instance Is whero, In 1743, the

committed twenty-eight porsons to prison,
where thoy were thrust by tbe Keeper
Into a holo elx foet square and five feet

Those facts show tho poisonous otTects
of tho human bivath or of respired air.
Professor Browu-Sequard has rocontly
made some exporliueuta that are uot ouly
highly Interesting, but show why tho ex
pired air of man and animals la so deadly.
From the condensod vapor of the expired
air he produced a liquid so poisonous that
whou Injected beneath the akin of rabbits
It produced almost Instant death. This
poison he found to be uot a microbo, but
an alkaloid. Ills conclusions are that the
expired air of all aulmals contains a poi
son more fatal than carbonic acid. It Is
woli for pooplo to understand these facts.

purer air for loss crowding In homo and

while they eat, should bo corrected by
doses of liquid magnesia, for acidity, or
the citrate of magnesia for bilious and

Chock nothing but 111 nature, and lot
this reliovo itself by a smnrt, snappish fit,
rathor than suppressed peevishness for a
dpy. There are sound medical reasons for
this advice, In allowing tho uorvous
chargo to paas off and a healthy reaction
to take Its ploco. It ought to bo a great
cause of gratitude to know that most of
the Ul humor In the world Is physical, and
that It passes off with rest, If over tired,
or by reaction from sudden shock or stir
ring up. when the nerves suitor from con
fluomcnt. This is why children are so an
gollcally better after an outbreak and
Binart slippering, and why girls will got
up after hysteric crying spoils, fresh as
June roses after showers. Change of In

naughtiness and crying in both cases. We
are meant to bo happy, satisfied and at
ease, and nature rises up for her righta
when tho strain goes beyond safety.

cannot expect to attain a higher state of
