In view of all that has been said.'
about tho falb in the death rate, lt
seems strange to realizo that we ar?
not living so long us our grandfathers
and grandmothers did. Moro babies
live to grow up nowadays than former
ly, but people In later lifo die younger.
Once arrived at adult age tho average
man or woman has fewer years of sur
vival to expect. This seems on the face
of it so surprising a statement that in
order to bo accepted lt should be back
ed up by data authentic and indisputa
ble. Such data are furnished by the
figures of the insurance companies,
which all agree on the point, but it ls
easier to refer to the government cen
sus reports, which tell the tale In sim
ple and convincing fashion. Even dur
ing the last fifteen years the death
rate among al) persons over fifty-five
years of ?ge of both sexes has risen
very considerably.-Health Culture.
Th? Porcelain Tower.
The famous porcelain tower was one
of the architectural boasts of Nankin,
(.Udna. It was reared In the ninth cen
tury before Christ by King A-yon and
has been twice rebuilt, once In the
fourth century of the Christian era
and again in M13 by Hoang-ll-Tai.
Tlie tower originally attained a height
of 350 feet, lt consisted of nine stories,
surmounted hy a great mast bounded
by a spiral cage and crowned by an
immense globe. A hundred and fifty
two large betls were hung from the
roofs of the nine stories, which were
ornamented also with 128 lamps. The
cost of the original edifice M'as esti
mated at between 535.000,000 and $10,
000,000. It was made of white brick,
and the walls and roofs were brilliant
ly ornamented with porcelain. Thc
groat porcelain tower was destroyed
in 1853, during tho Talplng occupation
of the city.
