'I dispense with the use -of and wax in grafting, aud tie nothing oh to pro- tect the budding, use plasters of cment- ed rags only. I procure well worn cotton rags, nncl for budding, tear them in strips not more than an inch wide for grafting, n little mere than an inch wide. They may be short or long. though a regular length would be better for both purposes. The iiarrow strips are then wound around a short stick smoothly and loosely, care being .taken that the end of the former strip laps over tho first end of the last strip added, otherwise in unrolling it would be difficult to find the ends. Tho roll will IKS like the bandages- used by surgeons for broken limbs. Tho composition I use is 1 pound of resin, 1 pound of beeswax, 1-J- pounds of tallow; into .which, whon perfectly melted nnd, mix- ed, the rolls arc put, noti to soak merely, biit to boil until the bubbles entirely cease to rise on the surface, fomhen it is certain that t.ho nir is by the hont .excluded from the rolls, nnd tbo vnccu.m filled with tho cement.. This of courso, is adopted wit h bandag- es of any width. Tho rolls should bo taken out while hot, tint! when cold usotl ns required.

AH agree that a ipuro. atmosphere is essen- tial to health. Now, what is gris atmos- phere? It is a compound of two: oxygtn and the proportion ni one "part of tho former to four parts .of the hitter. Although four-fifths .of tho atmos- phere consist of nitrogen, we do hot with- draw any of it by breathing. It is the oxy- gen alone that acts chemically on tlie blood in respiration. All living bodies must breathe oxygen, or die; and all animttl functions are maintained by the incessant play of affinities between the atmosphere nnd tlie organs. How does'the atmosphere of a. school- room become vitiated..? The body lives by converting dead rgaiiic matter.into its own substance. This matter is removed from the influence of life as nrpidly nail is-brought, under it. The removal is effected by the union of oxygon with the mailer. The oxy- gen is received into the' lungs iti breathing; therefore, by every breath we so far vitiate the air around us. At brenth we ex- hale right or nine per cent of carbonic-acid air is unfit for respiration if it con- tain more ihan thieo and a half per cent ol this pis.
