A Modern Allien lun'n Dilemma.
"Did 1 ever tell you," said Thalia to a
reporter, "my nwful experienco tho only
time 1 was over honored by a cull fiom
tne elder Salvini? .My sister hud been
shown many kindnesses by him while in
Italy, and had begged him to call on us
when ho camo to America. It was tho
maid's afternoon out, 1 was alono in tho
flat with Jack, my irrepressible ten-year-old
nephew. An accursed impulso
whispered to mo that a hot bath was a
good remedy for headache.
"1 was in my bath wrap, my dripping
hair hanging about mo, when tho bell
rang. Oh.hor.orl Tho name on tho card
which Jack poked under tho door was
Tjmaso Salvini! 1 knew ho scarcely
understood a word of English. 'Jack,'
I gasped, 'say aftor mo till you get it,
"Madamo D. ost sortie," and then go in
and firo it oil at him. Ilo'U know what
it is if you don't. Ilo'll go away.' So
said, so doue. Tho littlu scamp caught
tho words quickly aud ropeatcd them

Air Strata Over Cities.
Tho popular idea that tho higher one
gets in tho city air tho puror the atmos
phere becomes, has been disproved by
evidonco given before a select committee
on houso of commons ventilation in Lon
don. It is found that tho nir of cities
like London, whore soft coal is burned,
is purest at thirty or forty feet from tho
ground. Lower than that tho dust is
encountered and higher tho smoke from
These conclusions wore urrived at
from experiments with frames of wood
coverod with blanketing matorial put
at different olovations ono on top if tho
clock tower at Wostminstor, another on
tho highest point of tho roof and othors
at various heights down to tho court
yard. After five hours' oxposuro there
wore found to bo moro smuts at high
elovations than at low, but on tho lovol
of tho conrtynrd there wore considera
ble quantities of dust
Tho inforonco from theso oxporimenta
is that tho common notion that tho high
est stories of tho tallest blocks of Hats
aro dosirablo for their salubrity is apt to
bo a mistaken one, and that beyond forty
foot nothing is gained by going higher
unless n very great height somo say 400
or pqo f eot is roachod. - l ' "'
