closet door open for nn hour or so
every few days, when tho windows
throughout tho house aro open.

ADDS TO THE LENGTH OF LIFE
Nothing Better Than Pedestrian Ex
ercise, Especially to Those Who
Have Passed Beyond Youth.
Some of tho most noted of tho old
men of New York, buccessful in busi
ness, tho professions and public af
fnlrs, havo formed a walking club for
tho purpose of making their pursuit
of still greater length of days and still
better health as agreeable af it Is
sensible. They Intend to take long
walks together and, no doubt, to make
their pedestrian experiences tho sub
ject of entertaining discussion and a
store of memories held in common.
This Is an example which might well
be followed In every city of tho United
States. In tho era of motor vehicles
thero Is danger that walking will bo
increasingly neglected, especially by
men and women advanced in years,
who often neejl it most. Thero Is a
constant temptation to forget that rid
ing hi the open air, line as it is in
many ways, can never do for the body
what walking does.

fortunato incident occurred. Tho
scramblo to find a sufficient number
of candles bo that tho dinner might
proceed was attended with a great
deal of difficulty and no little amuse

as being a bit now to his Job, was im
mediately told to telephone to tho
electric company, report tho catastro
