The doors and windows of bhose ae the medimss through which the benediotions of health should be o;rdially invited to enter, and strong, pure air should be an all day visitor-indeed, an all-night 'one, too-in fine summer weather. The proper airing of rooms icltude. also the letting in of sun shino. Unfortunately, with a large numberof housekeepers the admission of fresh air is an accident rather than a thoughtfulproceeding. Invalids fail to recuperate with the rapidity which nature intends, and not infrequently they die of weakness, unable to contend against the poisonous influenoce of the vitiated air. Impurities in the air always rise, and to an dnwholesome cellar many an illness and death may be justly accredited. Conse quqntly, this pars of the house should be regularly aired with scrupulous care. Not infrequently deadly fevers have originated tn a small unnotloed heap of deeaying d6bris in a cellar. Upon entering one may find only an apparent tidiness, all vis...
