Let us recognize this danger, knowing that the means of reaching and overcoming It are simple und within the reach of every one, i'nslaked lime scattered plentltullv mound these places is one of the simplest uud best methods of kill ing poisonous gases und sweetening the air. Coal oil Is another disinfectant, that Is within Ihe reach of everyone. Copperas, dissolved in wuter und poured into uud around cess pools and out-hniiHCH, is one of tile most i powerful germ destroyers and deod I erlien there Is.
