G The Lighting of Schoolrooms. t Public school children's eyes are often seriously damaged by poorly lighted schoolrooms. This fact should be remembered in building school houses. Modern school architects and hyg'enists have worked out some de finite plans to conserve eyesight, which should not be forgotten. For instance, in Northern countries, where sunlight is less prevalent than in Sounthern countries, and where fog, clouds and smoke are common, school-rooms should have one-fourth as much window-glass as there is fl or space. In Southern . countries, where the atmosphere is clear, one sixth w'ndow-glass space is sufficient., ""he bottom of the windows should be four feet above the floor. Windows should be as numerous as is consist ent with safe construction. They should be as far back in the room as possible, and to the left of the pupils. The .windows should be contained be tween iron or steel mullions. and thvir edges should be rounded, to per mit the ingress of light and its use ful distribution, and to prevent shacU I ows falling on the desks.
