I have before mu the records of no
less than fifty-two centenarians, tho de
tails in regard to whom have been col
lected by a committoo of the Britis
Medical Association. Of tho fifty-two
no fewer than thirty-six (more than
two-thirds) are women. This may
probably be attributed In largo part to
the comparative immunity that woino
enjov from many risks to which men
ore exposed, but? probably it is due not
less to their greater toinporance and to
their freedom from tlie anxieties and
heartburnings which attend men
struggles for Influence and even for
maintenance. Modicat men contend
however, that women also possess
greater inherent vitality than men, tho
mortality of girls being less than that

temperate nor less ambitious than tho
male, and is exposed to as many

.FACTS ABOUT CANDY.
lotsrestlof Information I'lofced Up T
New York Reporter.
There Is more money la molasses
randy at tho ordinary soiling prices
than in any other kinu.
rtusn to molasses candy como choeo
late drops, caramels and other candies
In which sugar and chocolate or plain
flavors ore the ingrodients. The candies
on which thoro is the least protit in
proportion to tho selling prico are those
which sell high. Tho best confectioners'
sugar costs but little over six conts a
pound, and the best grades of molasses
are not dear. They and a littlo flavor-inn-
make molasses candy, and that is
whv there is so much profit in it
There is another particular besides
good grades of molasses or sugar and
flavoring that makos a bigunioroncn in
the nualitv of candy and would account
for the superiority of some candy over
others. That is the quality of the but
ter. Cheap confoctiouors do not use
butter at all. There aro plenty of sub
stitutes for it but none answers entire
ly. One of the best known candy men
in New York, who has built up a large
business, starting from a small taffy
shop, thinks that his use of fifty-cent
butter in his molasses canity tias none
more to build up his trade reputation
than any thing else. Ho givos as the
keynote of candy success : "Pure ma
terials, fruit sirups and tine butter.
As much candy of the best grades is
sold iu summer as in winter, if not
more. Tho candy stores down town do
a big summer business, as business
men buy candy there for their wives
out of town, and young clerks send a
box every littlo while to their girl who
is off at some summer resort In tlie
winter the bulk of the trade is by the
women themselves, who cause more
trouble than the men, nnd do not buy
so much of the highest price. When a
man is buying candy he asks for tho
best, while a woman prices the candies
as she does every thing else.
A woman s candy store can always
be told from a man's candy store by
noticing whether there is a soda-water
fountain and somo tables to sit down
at A man does not go to a candy
store but to a drug store, for whatever
soda-water he may want while a woman
prefers a candy store to have a soda
water and ice cream attachment Some
of the candy stores are accused of run
ning liquor attachments in tho back
room reserved for ice cream tables, but
as nion do not go thore a male roportor
has no way of finding out except by
hearsay whother there is a secret for
men in the guiso of an ice croam parlor.
The host paid man in a candy estab
lishment is the designer of new candies.
His pay is $o0 or $60 a week, while tho
foreman of the factory receives only
$30 or $40. There is always a doraand
for now candies with new names. Each
new thing inventod has its run of pop
ularity for a little whilo, and then is
succeeded by something else. The
candy man who puts the most taking
novelties on the market at tho right
time is the one who makes money.
There is a constant demand not only
for new candies but for now flavors
nnd designs in old standbys. Molasses
candy is as old as any form of confec
tionery, yet thero are new flavors and
forms of it appearing every littlo while,
and caramels and chocolates continually
turn up with some French namo pre
fixed to them. A man who can invent
such things is worth money, and is
rare. A'. Y. Evening Sun.
