WHAT WE OWE TO THE WIND.
It Is Nntuie's Great Vltallzer 'and
From the Philadelphia Pi ess
Tho i oln lion of fiesh air to vitality
Is denionstiated In a' sulking niainui
b.v the investigation of Professor Edwin
Grant DeMer, of the Unlvoislty of Illi
nois. He has made a painstaking study
of calms In the city ot New Yolk, oi
lather tho effect of calms on the lccoids
of the public schools, the police couits
and tho penltentlnry. Tho whole niitn
bei of data eonsldeicd and tabulated
by him Is 497.2CJ, all to show the effect
of calm, that Is, the absence of unv
wind movement exceeding foui miles
an hour on the human oiganlsm.
Ho notes the unexpected fact that the
absence fiom schools dining calm
woathei was moie than tlnoo times tho
uvciiige foi nil otliei kinds of weathci,
which of com so Includes tho veiy cold,
the veiy wet and the voiy windy weath
er, as well as tho noiin.il. It Is In the
calm weathei that chlldien aio not feel
ing well, and It Is then that tho dls
ease pecullai to childhood aie most
pi one to visit them. The ci Imlnal lec
oids show less assaults, dlsoidei and
x!oI.iee dui Ing calms than at other
times Tlieio aio nunc policemen laid
off, moie enois made bj cleiks in banks
anil a Ingot nuinbei of deaths when
tho ah Is stationaij, oi ncaily so, than
w hen it is in motion.
The conclusion of Piofcssor Dextci is
that dining ealms those life phenome
na which are due to depleted vitality
aie excessive, while the phenomena due
to excessive xltallty aie deficient. Tills
is in harmony with oidinnij' and inex
act observation. The source of oui un
ci gj' is oxjgon if that Is deficient we
aie devitalised, less callable of both
good and ovll A stagnant oi slowly
moving air in a huge iltj' is lobbed of
Its oxygen and vitiated by the exhala
tions of thousands of men and animals
When tho wind pi ev ails a flush supply
of unexhausted ail Is constantly mov
ing in to take tho place of the old.
This is the condition most favoiable to
human attainment, as cxpeiicnce de
monsti ates, and Piofossoi Dexlei's In
vestigations do stiikinglj- veilty
While this nuiuiij does not estab
lish anj thing leally new, it gives us a
deniei appieciation of the value of
wind as the oaith's puilfler and vital
izer. The heautj of calm, still nights
had been sung bv poets fiom time 1m
memoildl, but it is not accidental that
sueh poilods aie also associated witli
death. Then let the vv inds blow w hilo
we give thanks. Old Boiens and his
vaiious lelatlves have not loceivod the
ciedit that should be theiis, foi though
at times thev biing with them cold and
stoim and destruction, they puige and
ptiiifv the e.ulh and give life and hope
and eneijv to Its people.
