eetllence Made Desreaerate) of the
People la the MMsls irM
In 1343 a pestilence that swept over
the greater part of Europe well-nigh
destroyed the moral sensibilities of the
bumau race. Duriug the fcrevaleuce of
the plague tbeie seemed to be no sense
of bouor, no realization of duty to God
or man In many parts of the continent.
A physician of Avignon, Prance, writes
of the conditions that then existed:
"The father did not visit his son, nor
the son his father. Charity was dead."
Villa ut says of his neliibora at Flor
ence thnt tbey behaved as "might per
haps be expected from Infidels and
savages. Men gave themselves up to
the enjoyment of the worldly riches to
which they had succeeded." The En
glish manor court rolls record more
than one case where a house bereft of
Its occupants by the plague was plun
dered by the neighbors and bodies of
the dead stripped by their own fellow
vIllugeN. The wealthy, lu the months
following the plague, gambled, reveled,
steeped themselves in gluttony and
lechery; the poor Idled, brawled, took
advantage of the necessities! of their
lords and became irreligious and rebellious.
Scarcely a writer fails to record the
ntter eclflsbneea ef the period of the
visitation and the dlauoluteneea and
lowered morals which followed In Its
wake. The survlvkig laborers Insisted
on higher wages and employers used
their influence with the government to
pass laws to compel the acceptance of
the' old rates. Contention raged be
tween rich and poor, and the seeds'
were sown for Jacqueries and peas
The building of churches ceased for
a time. The newly laid foundations of
the vast nave and choir of the cathe
dral at Siena were left as they were,
and have never been built upou to this
A thousand partially built churches
remained Btutionary for a time and
their construction was resumed only
when architectural style had changed
so distinctly that the line of division
can still be seen. At Oxford and
Cambridge and Paris the number of
students was depleted and never again
rose to Its former number. The clergy
suffered more than any other class in
the community. Many a monastery
had lost its whole body of occupants,
In others the few survivors, with di
minished Income and discipline be
cause of the death of tholr leading
members, never refilled their numbers
or regained their old prosperity and
vigor. The bishops were compelled to
ordain to the service of the church the
young, the Inexperienced, the Illiter
ate, and even then there were too few
for its needs. .

The college professor asked the rest
of us whether Ice was colder In win
ter than it was In summer. Now, to
the rest of us, Ice was Ice, and there
fore we could not see how It could re
main ice and be either colder or warm
er. Then the professor explained the
thing In this fashion:
"If a thermometer Is burled In Ice in
summer It will Indicate 32 degrees. If
you throw a piece of lee into boiling
water, and leave it there until It Is al
most gone, what Is left would be still
at 82 degrees. Ice can never be got
ten above that temperature.
"But while Ice can never be warmed
above 82 degrees, It will go as much
below that as the weather does. An
Iceman delivering Ice one zero day In
January was asked whether his ice
was any colder than , In July. He
thought not. But, as a matter of fact,
a piece of summer ice, If he had had It,
would have been something of a foot
warmer for him, as It would have been
30 degrees warmer than the. air of the
bottom of his wagon.
"Mixing salt with ice makes It much
cooler. The ice in a wine cooler goes
down to about zero. This is why the
point zero on our common thermome
ters was fixed where It is. It was
supposed to be the lowest point which
could be reached by artificial means.
Since then we have reached about 883
degrees below zero by chemical pro

weather grows colder the iron and the
ice will cool off, and one just as much
as the other.
