been a wondciful example of what sci

HecaiHo of my theory that delicate men
live tlio longesi. It is , of course ,
because they take bettor care of thorn-

The latter say , 'On ' , 1 can stand wny
thing ; nothing will hurt mo ; ' and the
tiling you know pneumonia orsomo
such disease takes them oil' like a | la h.
The delicate man or woman , on thecon -
ttary , is alxvays guauling against
draughts , is careful during sudden
chaniros , mindful not to oat xx'hat exper
ience has taught him does not ug.oo xvith
him , and by such care extends und pio-
longs life ,
" 1 xvill give you another intoresling
fact. It has been demonstrated of Into
by tlio most careful computation by tlm
most reliable statistics that the age of
man is increasing rather than diminish

to scientific discoveries of various kinds ,
to moio knowledge , to better sanita

There is certainly food for relloptlon in

whatever its theme might have been , was
sulliciently loiimikablo without Mr. Til

cccentiieity of its delivery. He would
not trust thu postal seixieo. Nor would
lie condescend to liim an ordinary inos-

man of social standing , strch as permit
ted the confidence of the agetl statesman ,
ipccived tioin his own hands the missive ,
xvith the injunction to sin render it only

No better illusliation of the infliionco
that the southern bounty exerted over
