The biologist Bictaat, wbose institutions so marvelously anticipated the conclusions of a later science, held that the normal longevity of our race should be an average of ninety six years, basing his inference on the fact that the life term of all known mammals exceeds at least six times the period of their growth. A dog, growing for three years, may live to eigbteen or twenty. A horse. growing for four or five, attains, and often exceeds, an age of thirty years. A camel, growing twice as slowly, may Uve to forty years and upward. An elephant, even in captivity, does not attain its full growth be fore its fifteenth year, and m India often outlives two masters. Some of the larger quadrumana, likewise, grow very slowly; several varieties of baboons, for instance, do not acquire the characteristics of maturity before the beginning of their teens; and the naturalist Brehm mentions a male oacma who, after becoming the patriarch of his tribe, raided the durra fields of the Zulu vil lages for nearly thirty years before he met his Waterloo in a fight with the outraged natives. The males of our own species grow for at l3t sixteen years, but less than one-third tvach even the threefold multiple of that age, and hardly one in SCO the normal sixfold. Attention has also to be called to the circum stance that, whether the years of Genesis may nave been solar years, moons or sea sons, the genealogy of the patriarchs records a steady decrease of longevity, smce the author of that record can hardly be supposed to have used, within the same chapter, two or three different units of computation. Besides, there is an a priori probability that the average duration of our life term must have been shortened by those three billion tons of virulent stimulants, which, according to Dr. Schrodt's estimate, have convulsed the viscera of mankind since the invention of alcoholic beverages, not to mention narcotic drinks, tobacco, made dishes, premature marriages, indoor life, sedentary occupations, high pressure schools, sleepless utghts, and all the fracas, fret and factorv smoke of modern citv life. There is no doubt that the average of longevity has lightly increased since science has begun to dispel the monstrous hygienic superstitious of the middle ages, but it is equally certain that those suierstit ions enornously decreased the average life term of earlier generations. coxDrcrTc to longevity. Mental aerivitv under the stimulus of a fierce competition, is uot specially conducive to lenh of life, yet a surprising number of Grecian statesmen, poets and philosophers were octogenarians. The sun of the south did not prevent the passionate, though die tetically tt-mperafe, Saracens of Bagdad and Cordova from reaching an age which their Trinitarian contemporaries often ascribed to the innch inations of witchcraft. Yet neither the Greeks nor the Moriscoes were distin guished for the practice of the ascetic vir tues. They loved life for its own sake, and saw nothing meritorious in gratuitous self denials. Phvsical exercise, out door sports, absence from toxic stimulants and premature incon tinence, frugality in the original sense that imnlied a predilection for a mainly vegetable diet, and the love of mirth and harmless recreations, generally suffice to keep disease Shall the Newspaper Article Be Signed? Effect of the Space System. Space writing makes newspaper work a vast gamble; there is always the alluring vision of a "big story" to-morrow, which justifies the extravagant expenditure of today. There is nothing more calculated to demoralize a man than a constantly varying income. It Is all very well for moralists to claim that the worker should calculate upon the minimum, it Is not in human nature to do so. The cases where a space worker man ages to save any money are very rare, while the salaried man, whose weekly pay may not be so large as the average of the space worker, in nine cases out of ten has a snug bank ac count. Besides demoralizing the men, the space system directly injures the papers them selves. A salaried man has very Utile tempta tion to enlarge upon the facts, his effort is not to make a long story in order to lengthen his string, but only to make a good one, that be may strengthen his hold upon the paper. 1 he salaried man is rarely a "fakir," the space worker has every temptation to be. Of the padded stories and sloppy writing which the space system encourages, there is no need to speak ; we have to suffer more and more from it everv dav. The vast injustice of the space system it that it makes no distinction as to quality, but only regards quantity. One result is that every live newspaper has each day pre pared as much again copy as can be used, and in every office one or more men are em ployed for the sole purpose of destroying the labor of other men. For obvious reasons it is almost impossible for a man in the office to understand thoroughly every story which passes under his blue pencil, and as a natural result " copy chopping " is rarely done very 3udiclously. Again, there is very l.ttle in ducement for a man to make story good, unless at the same time he can make it long. A column is a column whether it be brilliant or dull. If, as many editors claim, it is impractica ble to do away with the space system, signa ture could be brought in with good effect to modify it and lessen its injustice. If the copy reader was empowered to attach the signature of the writer to a meritorious article, it would furnish an inducement for better writing and more accurate work. It would enable a conscientious man to build up a repntation for himself outside of the paper on which he is employed. It would be, at least, a recognition ot good work. There are very few men who would be willing to see their signatures appended to statements which they know to be fale or to writing w hich they know to bo sloppy. The benefit would tie mutual to the pajierand the writer. The Journalist. A Re mirk ab is Letter. Nothing is more interesting than let ter.

Here is a truly remarkable letter: I have been troubled with rheumatism for two years; bad gotten so I could scarcely walk, and was in pain nearly all of the time. At night 1 could not sleep for the excruciating pain. The bone in one or my legs was very much enlarged, and I feared amputation would be neces sary.

W-dttw caoeo in Goethe's remark, that perfect health of mind and body depends upon the regular, though not necessarily exclusive, pursuit of some practical occupation. Brain workers, he thought, should follow some mechanical bv-trade, and counteract the one sided ten dencies of their study by mechanical labor- say, in an amateur carpenter shop, or a pri vatesmithy, a la E. J. Bur-rut; or, better yet, on a Utile farm, with a bit of live stock and a thriving orchard. Disapoointinent, oft repeated, undermines health as effectually as protracted physical pain, and fnr the worry of the vexations incident to the complex and precarious pur suits of modern civilization there is, in deed, no better specific than the peace of rustic garden hme.

Isow, I believe that the use of too lash on beasts of burden is at times necessary. Brute force is often an essential. There is but one way of managing a bull dog. There is but one mode of dealing with wild beasts. Ex perts toll me that an attempt to control a company of elephants without the prod would be a supreme tolly, ihe elephant is cun ning. The elephant is cruel. The elephant is long suffering.

Boast tamers tell me that nothing under heavens keeps the lion, the tiger, in his place, crouching with fear, except a firm faith they have in the superior physical strength of their mas ter.

Anything to equal the pose young women now affect is d lib cult to imagine. W bile they are on their feet they aro beauti ful to look upon, and beyond criticism or cavU. It is when they are seated that the great and glaring flaw of the present artifi cial and fashionable construction of the American young girl becomes evident. While they succeed in faoldingttheir shoulders back, it is impossible to keep the neck at the same angle, when seated, unless their faces are held at the same level as the floor. Hence, their heads necessarily droop for ward, leaving a long and noticeable distance between the neck and the back of the high collars. It gives the effect of cut throat suf fering.
