That ozone is a most desirable
thing, that it is a purifier of the
air, a destroyer of noxious bacteria,
a wholesome stimulant to the lungs,
is a popular belief that cannot be
banished too quickly.
Oione is a poisonous gas. It is
injurious to the throat and lungs,
irritates the endings of the sensory
nerves, corrodes the epithelial cells
and causes indirectly changes in the
blood which produce headache, de-
presaion and drowsiness!
The very latest word on oxone is
in the form of two articles in the
Journal of the American Medical
One by Dr. W. A
Sawyer, director of the hygienic
laboratory of the California state
board of health, and his coworkers,
Beckwith and Stolfield, denounces
the use of oxone machines in thea
ters, schools, offices and other places
where it is desired to purify the air.
The other, by Drs. E. 0. Jordan and
A. J. Carlson of Chicago, describes
a long series of experiments with
ozone performed by them.
So far as its effect upon bacteria
is concerned, oxone ia valueless in
the opinion of all these experts. It
undoubtedly does kill some germs,
they agree; but, in the words of
Drs. Jordan and Carlson, “ human
beings are injuriously affected by
amounts of ozone far less than are
necessary to produce even this slight
bactericidal effect. * * * Oxone
has no place in room disinfection.”
Neither is ozone a deodorizer. It
sometime« disguises odors, but more
often paralyzes the olfactory nerves
so that the nose is incapable of
Ozone gives a certain “ tang” to
the air, a “ tang” that may tempo
rarily whip up a fagged brain. But
Dr* Jordan and Carlson consider
this no more beneficial than “ a whiff

A French friend of mine who has
been staying in Glasgow for a short
time is amazed, not to say shocked,
at the indifference of the crowd
during the passing of a funeral.
They do things differently in
France. Even in the crowded streets
of Paris every one lifts his hat or
cap at the sight of a funeral. In
many cases the onlooker stands
bareheaded till the cortege has filed
past slowly. My French friend as
sures me that in some parts of his
country one would run the risk of
almost being assaulted if the obei
