many of the miseries of the miserable lo

but there are not many, and there are
almost m few drinkers who are always

of bitter beer, raw Scotch whisky and

place. Public opinion is no weapon
against it, for public opinion openly fa

them. The barroom is the gossip -plav
and babr s and small childrt n are carried
to it and kept in it by careful mothers,
who gather there for the day's necessary
talk. Infants sometimes cry and at such
times are permitted a sip from the ma
ternal glass, quite as other children are
bribed with chocolate drops. Thus blear
eyes and drink reddened faces often have
early beginnings. The children on the
streets are dirty, ragged and vociferous

not genuinely happy. There is no reason
why they should be. They derive much

At What Age la Man StrongeHt?
The muscles, in common with all the
organs of the body, have their stages cl
development and decline; our physical
strength increases up to a certain age
and then decreases. Tests of the strength
of several thousands of people have been
made by means of a dynamometer
(strength measurer) and the following
are given as the average figures for the
white race :
The "lifting power" of a youth of 17
years is 280 pounds; in his twentieth
year this increases to 820 liounds, and
in the thirtieth and thirty-first years it
reaches its height, 35G Tiounds. At the
end of tho thirty-first year the strength
begins to deeliue, very slowly at first.
By tho fortieth year it has decreased
eight pounds, and this diminution con
tinues at a slightly increasing rate until
tho fiftieth year is reached, when the
figure is 830 pounds.
After this period the strength fails
more and more rapidly until the weak
ness of old age is reached It is not pos
sible to give statistics of the decline of
strength after the fiftieth year, as it va

viduals. Str:uiil Magazine.
