Longevity By Winslow Anderson, A. M., M. D., M. R., C. P., Lond., Etc. Longevity is indeed a Strange and difficult problem.-flfinol. N'l'IilDll'.l,'Vl.'XN human life, we are informed by lloly Writ, reached nearly to 1,000 years. Methusalah lived to be 000. llis grandfather, jared, reached 0073 years, and the first man, although created full grown, lived to be 0530 years. Noah was 000 years old before the flood, and he lived 350 yearsafter it. The postdilnvians reached only about half the span of human life that was enjoyed by their Noachian predecessors. ,Father Abraham, who Hourished about 23,000 years ago, was only 175 years of age at his death, although Sarah bore him a son when she was near 00, .-X few centuries later-about 23,500 years ago-we find that Moses died at 120 and his virgin sister, Miriam. at l250 years of age. 'l'hree thousand years ago, so far as history records itself, men lived no longer than they do today. King David, for instance. died when he was '70, and his son Solomon at 58. Mohammed and Confucius, about 73,500 years ago, lived to be 02 and 70 respectively, whereas lflerodotus, the fireek historian of 73,400 years ago, recorded 01 years. The shortest age of human life was reached about 400 years ago, when the average of all born was between IS and 20 years. Some years ago the average life had increased to 30 years, andlnow it has been extended to -I0 years. Many within the past century have reached 100 years, and several S0 and 00 years. Bismarck, Gladstone, Oliver Wendell Holmes, and l.i 'l lung Chang were over S0 when they died. Several Californians have lived to be consider- ably over 100 years old. I5

Mammals and Fishes Extreme old age is not confined to humanity alone. Many mammals and fishes live to a great age. The elephant and whale often pass the century mark. The crocodile and the tortoise Cturtlesj keep on growing as long as they live, which is often 100 to 150 years. The pike and the carp score the century and a half mark. Even the lowly sea-anemone has been known to live in captivity 55 years. F owls The parrot may reach 100 years: the raven, 50, the blue macaw, 645 the eagle-owl, 533 the heron, 60, the swan, 70, and the goose, 80 years. Trees The most remarkable longevity is found in the life of trees. The oak, cedar, and many hardwood trees live many centuries. But the giant trees, the Sequoia Gigantea of California, surpass all organic life in age. The giant of the forest at Wawoiia, California, was a hundred feet tall when Noah began to build his ark. It was over 1,000 years old when Abraham went to Egypt and Sodom and Gomorrha were destroyed by fire. It was a giant tree when the Egyptian pyra- mids under Rameses Il. were built. It was 200 feet tall when Solomon built his temple, and was 100 feet in circumference when the Norsemen discovered America, nearly 1,000 years ago. These trees are survivors of the tertiary times and are probably as old as the creation of Adam, as they occur in a fossil state in the polar regions in British Columbia and in Europe. Longevity depends on heredity, physical surround- ings, environment, including temperature, slow growth, and late reproduction. Why Do We Grow Old? To discuss longevity scientifically requires some consideration of the "vital phenomena" called life, I6
