Thes aro tho ioplo who were trained from youtt to get a grip on the day's work that did not loosen until it was done; who rlcand our forests, built our roads, founded our towns, established our school system, and from th native richness of their country homes sent into tho world the sturdy young men, the rosy cheelusl young women, with whoso in flux the town became the eitj', tho city n metropolis, anl a profitable- market was cre ated for the products of tho farms they had loft, and the money made in mercantile life went back to tho tillers of tho soil and our inland commerce camo into leing. One correspondent, writing from New market, N. II., gives a good idea of tho cir cumstances of soma of tho old pe ople he has seen, and advances one or two ideas not un iiupiorted by medical opinion. Ho says: "I could extend names almost indefinitely of nion all around here living on fii abundance of plain fo-xl, hard workers, no liquors, regu lar in their habits, who never die from dis ease, but only us old ago takes them oL I include regular church attendance, because I belie vo that to bo an important matter as giving pea co of mind, contentment and hoje all favorable to longevity-. On tho other hand, I could furnish a large list ol persons who, other things being favorable, have killed themselves with liquor, cider, irregu larity in eating, working and sleeping; some living to good ago but ahvuv, --ckly. Men nd women liviug in tho neighborhood, who Lavo been temperate in all things, never die, if they escajw consumption, except from pneumonia or other a' "j disease. Almost every farmhouso that has remained in the same family for a century will bo a homo for three or four generations, all living together, extreme's meeting excellent company for each other and the happiest families that can be fouinL No danger of filial love and rev eronce dying out in such families as these. r "There is one point which I have tried tc bring out in this canvass among tho old Ioople," writes another correspondent, "and that is tho elTeet of tobacco on tho health. If this point has been as carefully considered by other correspondents and with tho same results, it alleviates tho fears which many may entertain about nicotine and tho cur tailment of life by tho uso of tobacco. Among tho very oldest of tho people inter viewed, between H) and 100, tho men havt boon addicted to tho uso of tobacco, in the majority of cases, since an early age." But our return fail to show that any con giderablo number of tho old people ever madt habitual uso of liquor through life; anil it must bo borne in mind that tho Modford ruin of our grandfathers and other liquors in use half a century ago wero without doubt purei and better than nineteen-twentieths of the liquor sold today. One hundred and fifty ol the old gentlemen say positively that thej never used liquor or tobacco in any form, confers to tho use of liquor 011I3-, 1 1 to the uso of tobacco only, while admit having made habitual use of both liquor and to bacco, though Instances of immoderate use of liauor are very rare. Wo cannot thinli these figures accurate, ns it is doubtful if this subject was thoroughly canvassed, but it is afo to say that a very small proportion 01 the men and but a trivial number of the women made habitual uso of liquor and to bacco, It is curious to note, by tho way, that mnny of tho men who used liquor only io earlv lifo ceased using it entirely, whilo the men who used liquor and tobacco nearly all who discarded liquor clung to tho tobacco habit. Cider, forty-four men say, they have drank for years, but the e'Joct of hard cider upon tho constitution cannot bo learned from . 1 . , j ii . r (I.imiteili. (i KN V.

The statistics of vnonicn who mado habitual uso of li;uor or tobacco aro more incomplete than of tho mm. Only three were willing to say that they had used snuff which must to averynvill proportion of tho correct num ber and ele en admit havinjr smoked, which proportion, too, must be small. With exceptions so few as to bo not worth recording numerically, tho old people upon tho list ha vo had threo meals a day, nt regu lar hours, of substantial food through their dives; nnd, what is moro interesting, nine tenths of them still continue to eat heartily, and of whatever they like. It is a hygienic law that threo liht meals a day aro better for elderly pooplo in health than ono heavy one, and our old people, of course, nro simply following the dictates of nature, while at tho Barao time they prove tho truth of her teach ings. Tea and coffee, too, they use, ono or tho other, but nio3t of them U)th, with only about a doien exceptions. Some have taken to drinking these leverages lato in life, but not enough, we ma 3- infer, to affect the no curacy of the statement that nearly all of them have been t and coffee drinkers. Of vegetarians but nine are meat ioned, five men and lour women. Two women eat no vegetables, one eats none that grow above j ground, ono eats uo fish and one eats no meat. To sum up their tablo habits, our octogeua- j rians as a whole have eaten and drunk juft j what the rest of tho family have, in youth ; and in old ago. 1 Several instances of the "milk cure" are re corded. Human milk contains very little fatty matter, and skimmed milk closely re -embled it; and tho remedy consists in living for timo exclusively on skimmed milk; no strength is lost by the natural pro.x-ss of di gestion, and the surplus nutriment gained by thus furnishing the stomach with what it can digest w ith little effort goes into the blood and builds up the tystem; and, as one writer gays, 'the effect cf thus returning to the sim ple no ishment of childhood strikingly and beautifully illustrates tho chemistry of tins living body."
