Don't be Afraid of Cold.

Just inasmuch as people can be tempted to live more in the opea will the average of health improve. Cold does not cause " colds.' Nansen and his men at the North Pole did not suffer from respiratory affeations, but several of them were down with giippy " colds " within a short t;me of their return. D.>mptie?s is not aa active factor in the production of disease when there is adequate protection of the boJy by clothes, and when the food is abundant and neutr.ttous, and there h no abuse of stimulants. Old traditions sli mid net be allowed to have weight in the face of modern i-arei:ully collated obseivati ns. Windows should always be open in sleeping; rooms, no mater how cold or damp the weather, find if care be taken to have dry abundant bed clothing and a warm ioo:u to dress in, the c not only need bo no frw of evil consequences, but the health will always, be ■ better, aud any tendtmsy, particularly to respiratory diseases, the most frequeutly fatal affections of this stajo of civilisation, will surely be obviated.
