NIGHT AIR FALLACY.
i ne interiors ot many homes are
breeding places for disease because
ot the difficulties in the way of and the
objection to admitting fresh air. Foul
air full of poisonous gases exhaled from
the lungs of the inmates is frequently
the atmosphere of the home, and it
cannot be otherwise when our houses
are built to be closed as tightly as pos
sible. Fresh air today is a recognized
remedy for pneumonia and tuberculo
sis, and it is also known to be a preven
tive of diseases generally. For this
reason it is necessary to make arrange
ments for obtaining it in every enclosed
space used as a shelter. Buildings
should be ventilated so that it will
be impossible for those who occuov them
to rebreathe the air that has been
expelled from their lungs.
T lere seem to be three causes
which have contributed to the shut-
in .existence of the human family:
Need for warmth and comfort in the
winter; fear of night air; necessity
during ages past of building a home
to withstand attacks of enemies.
Protection against cold has been
gained by excluding fresh air. Even
in this day, with all our inventions
we cannot produce proper ventilation
without losing a large percentage of
heat, make their living rooms as nearlv
air-tight as possible.
In malarial countries millions of
people still believe that nieht air
is the carrier of deadly diseases, and
they use every means to keep it out
of their houses, closine doors and
windows as soon as the sun disappears
in tne west.
Of course the discovery that the mos
quito, and not innocent nieht air
is the carrier of tropical fevers should
Danish this prejudice. Todav it mav
be stated with authority that man may
preathe fresh night air with impunity
u he protects himself from insects.
Outdoor air is much purer in a given
location at night than it is during the
