We know that we must have fresh

No one can live well or long with
out good, fresh air. The oxygen that
is in the air is the best and we must
breathe it day and night, not to be
taken in sparingly as if it were ft
dangerous posion. Some people are
afraid of fresh air. It helps you to
live well. If you are sick with con
sumption, sleep out doors where you
get plenty of air that has plenty of
oxygen in it. They should not be
afraid of draughts, that is, currents
of the air. Fresh air helps you to
live well, to cure consumption.
By Minora Itainoy, Perley School.
There are two very important rea
sons why we need fresh air. First
we need fresh air to supply us with
oxgyen and second to carry off all
dust and poisonous gases. If we did
not have fresh air we could not live.
If a great many people were in a
room breathing over and over the
same air it becomes very poisonous.
People that almost live out of doors
are most always healthier than those
living in doors. People that have
colds all the time think it is caused
by too much fresh air, but they are
mistaken, us they probably caught
them by staying in heated rooms
where there was no fresh air.

By Sareita Bohn, Verlcy School.
It is evident that fresh air is good
for us for several useful reasons. The
greatest is to have our body supplied
with oxygen, ami to breathe plenty
of pure air and less of impure air.
We should also provide air that can
carry tff dust, noxious gases and
moisture. The body needs food, cloth
ing, bathing and drink, but none of
these wants are so pressing as that
for air. The other demands may be
met by occasional supplies, but air
must be furnished every moment or
we die. No tohic will so invigorate
as a few full, deep breaths of cold,
pure air. Air is the best medicine
God could give, so we should use it
and not be shut up in a warm room
or sleeping . with your w indows down.
By Lucille Witnmjor. St. Joseph's
Fresh air is very necessary to man
and animal. If it were not for fresh
air we could not live. If we were
to go into a house where the win
dows are closed, it is unhealthy and
seems very warm, but a room chore
the windsnvs are opened always seems
very cool, although the temperature
is the same. That is because in the
unhealthy room we breathe the same
air which is impure and that makes
the lungs weak, but in a fresh air
room we throw out the impure and
breathe in the pure. We should al
ways breathe through our nose, as in
the nose there are little hairs to
catch the dirt and germs and pro
vent them from going to the lungs;
but breathing through the mouth the
impure air goes straight to the lungs.
By William Jackson. Muecl School.
v resh air is good for you because
it prevents disease.
But when you stay in one room all
the time, you breathe all the oxygon
out and there is nothing left but
nitrogen, and the people who stay in
the house all Die time are not so
strong as the ones who stay out, doors
most of the time, and therefore fresh
air makes you stronjf.
If you don't have fresh air you
don't breathe enough oxygen, but a
large amount of nitrogen.
If you sleep in a room where the
window Is not open you will catch a
cold, so fresh air prevents colds.

YE OLD TIME PARTY.
Speaking of the all around good
times which we have enjoyed this"
year, none will stand out so prom
inently in the mind's eye as the
colonial party given by the fresh
man class in honor of the graduates
last Tuesday afternoon, and we re
joice in the fact that the sophomores
have at last found their peers in the
art of entertaining. The costumes
were striking and varied from laven
der and black to blue and geld. The
party began at 2 o'clock with the
dancing of the minuet in the high
school rooms, which had been thrown
together and elaborately decorated
with flags and red, white and blue
streamers. The streamers fastened to
the walls and drawn to the chande
lier in the center of the room formed
a canopy over the room, while large
flags curtained the doors and vin
dows. Following the minuet there
was a program of dances after "which
dainty refreshments were served In
the recreation room, which was dec
orated in the school colors, blue and
gold. The favors were small hatchets
with the inscription "I cannot tell a
lie." The remainder of tho after
noon was spent informally.
Characters from "ye olden days"
were to be seen in each nook and
corner, and we had no difficulty in
recognizing such persons as George
and Martha Washington, Messrs. and
Mesdames Patrick Henry, Jame3
Madison. John Quincy Adams, Ben
jamine Braddock, Eord and Eady
Fairfax, Thomas Carlyle, Benjamine
Franklin. Alexander Hamilton, Mar
quis do La Fayette, Thomas Jefferson
and John Carroll of Carrollton.
Severe 1 group photographs were
taken and when the proofs made
thir appearance, exclamations like
this greeted us: "Oh! do I really look
like that," "Why did you move Ruth"
and "There I knew mv hat was on
crooked." However, contrary to ex
pectations the pictures are remark
ably god, and show the new porch
and rest room off to advantage.
Among those who paid us a little
I call wore Mrs. Patrick O'Brien, Mrs.
George O'Brien and Masters Patrick
and Jerome Crowley. The former
oun-: man favored us with several
ocal selections which were greatly
enjoyed by all. Mrs. Joseph Donahue
: and "her littlo son. Joseph, jr., were
also among those present.
