Treatise on the ..Principles of Sanitary Science. continued. Sower Gas. The most careful an alysis show that it is composed chiefly1 ot carbomo acid, nitrogen, sulphurated hydrogen, ammonioal compound and iootid orgatiio vapoi; sower gas is a term often used with an scientific looseness and when so used it is mis leading. Tho worst evils of so-called sewer gas poisoning are very often found whero sewer gas propor does not, and, indeed cannot, penetrate. In most houses the so-called sewer gas, whioU is both a cuisanoo and a. danger, is chiefly manufactured on tho premises, and does its fatal work none tho lesB effectively becauso it is called by a wrong name. It is a fact that very muoh of tho mischief charged to sewer gas is attributed to poisons gonerated from filth whioh novor readies tho Bower, but lodges and ao oummulates in wtiste pipes. Elimi nato from sower gas tho organic germs whioh float in it insonsible to sight, touoh and smell, and I doubt not it would be drawing tho ferpaut fangs. Wo can tell the exact amount of mat ter present in a gallon ot sewage, but living organisms in sewer gas elude our sonses and defy tho most subtle and searohing methods of analysis. Sewer gas has a peculiar siokly odor; it is a vory rare occasion that it is over dotoctod in property ventilated and woll flushed sowers. It is not oonfined to sowers. alone, but is found in cesspols, abandoned wells, stone water sewers, coal mines, etc., and when found in those places it is bitter known by tho name of car bonio aoid gas ThiB gas is tho produot of tho decomposition of all substances containing carbon. Its properties are so well known that I nocd give but little space to its description. Inhaled in concen trated form, it quietly produces death, and even when considerably diluted with atmospheric air, it produces asrjhvxia and unless tho viotim is quiokly resoued from its influonce, death follows promptly. This gas is the fatal "ohoko damp" of tho coal mines, and doaths caused by it in one way or auother, are matters of almost daily oocurrenco. It has been proven boyond a rea sonable doubt, that it is tho prinoipal causo of typhoid fever on several ocoasions tho writer has been called upon to make a test for sewer or or oarbonio aoid gas, in dwelling housos and puolio buildings, I have yet failed to find it in any building whoro tho plumbing has been properly done by on experienced plumber, and at other times I have discovered it in buildings caused through the oaroless ness of the arohiteot in failing to pro vide suitable vent pipes to carry off tho gas; and again, I havo at times par ticipated in driving it from stopped-up sewers. It is easily oontrolled by any experienced sanitarian. A very sim ple tost for sewer gas will bo given the readers of The News on my forthcoming article on "Sowor Con- Bascins n - LdPowdec - wo Years the Standasi a. 000 jo ;ivxovi3.

Soil Pollution tho old fashioned privy vault and cess-pool cannot be too strongl condemned Constructed for the avowed purpose of retaining the solid matters' as loDg as possible upon tho premises, they beoome cen tres of pollution and infection. The liquid portions escaping, polluto tho soil and neighboring wells; tho noxious exhalations arising from their putri fying contents contaminate tho air. TJ10 extent to whioh the contents of a leaking oesspoll or privy may polluto the soil is well illustrated by the following: "An East-Greonwioh Rhode Island, in conscquoncc of tho esoapo of the contents of a barrel of potroloum. which had boon buried in an orohard, a oircuit of wells sixty feet below and seven hundred and fifty or nino hun dred feot distant, became so alfcc cd that tho occupiers of fifteen houses, containing eighty-two inhabitants, wero for ten days unable to use the water for drinking or cooking. Tho cattle of ono of tho proprietors, more over, refused to drink at the spring where they were accustomed to drink. Had this soakago been sowerago instoad of petroleum, who can doubt that tho result might havo been wholesale water poisoning and an out break of typhoid fover." Tho pollution of drinking water by sewerage; from privy-vaults and cess pools should bo closely guarded against; I have known families going through a 6low process of poisoning by drinking polluted well water. Tho family physician should always pay particular attention to tho water that is drank by thoir patients. Stagnant water should not be allowed to re main anywhero in tho neighborhood. Stagnant water in cities, is ono of the most dangerous of nuisances, it never fails to produce sickness in tho locality that it is allowed to roinain in. Dampness in tho ground whero bath water is absorbed by tho earth, considerable danger is oaused. Tho bacilli of miasma are generated on or slightly bolow tho surfaoo of damp earth in the presonce of vegeta bio mold, whero subsoil water occurs, thoy exist on the surfaoo in a slight depth of oarth.where tho best nourish ment is to bo found, but do not pone trato very deeply. Tho greater tho amount of organio matter in such earth tho moro do ' tho bacilli resemble the bactaria of decay. Tho bacilli of, contagious diseases, those whioh aro given off from tho nick in various ways, aro liable to effect tl 0 person upon whom thoy lodge. Th y havo never been known to multiply within the tissues. Thoy carry disease from individual to individual by allowing the bath water to bcoomo stagnato in the streot gutters. An easy method of utilizing bath water to an advantage whero sanitary sewers aro not looated is to oonvoy tho water from tho balh tub, into tho garden or lawn, by "coupling" a rubber hose to tho iron pipo of the bath tub, and attach a sprinkling pot nozzlo to tho other end of tho hose and then turn the bath water loose. It will be equal to a showor bath to the garden, fruit trees and tho grass lawiis. All that is necessary is to havo the rubber hoso long enough to move than untill now was over nindo boforo. Ono havo wo over oll'orod theso wo could all'ord to do it nud folt that but necessity knows no law n. poor rule that don't work oiler, you certainly can't fool tlio move and they must go, and got our prices. 518 AUSTIN ST call at onco ANOTHER CORKER, An 18 size American Watch, three-quarter plate Quick Train, straight line escapement, patent center pinion, patent stem wind, four paii s fine Ruby Jewels in settings (15 jewels), expansion balance adjusted, in a fine Gold Filled Dueber Case, guaranted to wear for 20 years for $18.90.
