Mow at tho th'-ory of somn physicians, who
claim that man should not ; aVii oad in th
morning until tho sun has la-en up lii
enough to dissipato tho noxious vni"rs w hk-ii
have risen from ami overhung tho earth's
surface during the niht.
So mr.rkei were tho instances of early ris
ing and retiring that The (lloo made h, list
of persons who may 1 said to represent the
extremists of at least the first lines of the
maviui, uml found that out of alout 2,00C
Iersons whose halits of lifo wero intelligent
ly set fortli in tho blanks ''A men have been
through life in the habit of lying atxd not
later than o:.' o'clock in tho morning, whil
i2S women always have risen In.-fore 0 a. in.,
mor.t of whom fctwl continue to do so. 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
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

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." Boston Globo.
