three months, they have expended three thousand dollars and they
have not got fresh air enough into the church to feed three
files.'' Let this church be properly ventilated, and the noted
pastor, though he may not be more eloquent and impassioned, will be
likely to add ten years to his pastoral life. Constant dropping, it
is said, will wear out a stone; and so the breathing of foul air,
at frequent intervals, along with great physical and mental effort,
can not fail to make an ultimate impression even upon the healthful
and vigorous system of the pastor in question. It was found that
the soldiers in the English barracks, near London, in consequence
of imperfect ventilation, did not live as long by ten years, upon
an average, as the agricultural population, outside of the
barracks, under similar conditions of life, excepting that they had
a pure and wholesome air. WATER-CLOSET VENTILATION. Many of our
finest houses are rendered almost intolerable by the water-closets,
the foul odors of which may be detected from the basement to the
attic, and yet the remedy is perfectly simple and easily applied.
The unwholesome odors and gases may be readily exchanged for the
sweet, pure air. In my mode of ventilating water-closets, the foul
air beneath the seat is made to ascend through a flue, by means of
a rarified atmosphere, carrying with it cigar smoke, or other
disagreeable odors above the seat, or within the in- closure or
apartment in which the closet is located; and thus the mingled
impurities of the atmosphere, so offensive to the sense of smell,
and so injurious to the health, are scattered upon the wings of the
wind. I have ventilated numerous closets for our wealthy families,
and always to their great delight and satisfaction.
