When one reads of so many accidents and deaths of vio

AMERICANS LIVE LONG AND WELL
; Americans live longer, on the average, than any other
people, according to the mortuary tables of the great life
And they get more solid enjoyment out of life.
The expectancy of American life rose from forty years in
1855 to fifty-one years in 1910. In no other country has such
an increase been recorded and no other people has an expec
tancy as great as fifty years. As there can be no effect
without a contributary and compelling cause, the question
naturally arises why the present generation should be living
longer and getting more enjoyment out of life than any that
has gone before. -.-.
! Some of the statisticians have attributed the higher
death rate in European and Asiatic countries to overcrowd
ing in the great centers of population. But there is vastly
more overcrowding in this country than in 1855, and yet the
span of life is increasing. Other statisticians assert that
the Americans are of a sturdier stock than any of the Eu
ropean peoples; but one is confronted again by the counter
argument that nearly all Americans are of European stock
and that .our longevity cannot be accounted for by heredity.
1 One scientist has taken 4he increased expectancy in the
United States for. a thesis in which he disserts on the su
periority of mixed bloods, holding that every people which
holds itself aloof , from others impoverishes its blood and
passes into decadence.' Many other theories have been ad
vanced, none of which are acceptable to the actuaries, and
they are still searching.
' In order to solve this somewhat perplexing problem it will
be necessary to consider what advantages we possess over
the generation of 1855. There Jias been no improvement in
' the stock during the last fifty years, but there have been
undeniable improvements in sanitation, medical science and
in the average standards of living.
Fifty years ago the southern half of the United States
was ravaged almost every summer by yellow and typhoid
fevers. They claimed a heavy toll of life and thus reduced
the average expectancy.. Municipal sanitation, isolation and
improved medical treatment have reduced the loss of life
from typhoid at least 70 per cent ; while the eradication of
the yellow fever mosquito has practically driven that scourge
from the country.
Wealth is more equally distributed in the United States
than elsewhere and the per capita average is higher. There
Is perhaps Jess grinding , poverty here than in any other
equally populous country. The average wage paid to the
workers is higher and their families are able to have more
of the comforts and conveniences of home life than the work
ers of other countries.' '
Worry shortens life and Americans as a class are less
inclined to fret and be cast down than the residents of other
countries. The average American is an optimist, and the
stitisticians agree that optimism tends to prolong life ; yet
we are not more inclined to optimism than the generation of
1855. t .
During the last twenty years a great deal has been writ
ten about the waste of nervous energy in this country and
its effect on the duration of life. If all that has been said
about the increase in the number of persons afflicted with
nervous diseases were true our expectancy would be falling
in place of rising. We live faster than our ancestors; but
wo also live longer. According to the actiMCries, there is
They built the Marion county courthouse so well that it
is to undergo interior changes for the first time in 25 years.
In Auld Lang Syne, somebody conceived and planned a
structure that matches well a city that has been constantly
growing more beautifuL As you pass through the heart of
Salem, you hear the comment of strangers on the beauty of I
the place, and as the courthouse comes into view through the
coach window, it invariably shares in the favorable comment.
It is not often that the sightliness of a building stands
the flight of time arid the demands of progress. It is not
often that a growing city is fortunate enough to have a
public building that keeps pace with it in its progress to
wards municipal sightliness.
But this is true of the Marion county courthouse m spite
of the tragedies of severed family ties, broken marriages,
murder trials, disastrous litigation and the thousands of
heartaches that are staged under the roof of the official
building of a shire city. Portland Journal.

There are those who would re
form the year. An organization
has been created which has for
its purpose the remodeling of the
calendar. They would have 13
months where 12 grew before.
This is a good deal like taking
a 10 per cent profit out of noth
ing. The 'Liberty Calendar asso
ciation has prepared a measure
for the action or congress which
would establish the new idea.
The plan is to have the months all
alike. There would be a new one
every four weeks and notable
days would always recur on tho
same anniversary. Of course the
Fourth of July would always be
the Fourth of July, but it would
always be on the same day of
the week. Easter Sunday would
always be on the 99th day of th?
year. Of course, there would be
an extra day every four years,
but this would be called Ieap
Year day. and would come after
J.iuue 2S. The extra month would'
be credited to spring, and it is
proposed to call it Vern meaning
vernal, or springlike and green.
It would be a fine thing to have
another, month of spring every
year. Likewise a man who is
getting $300 a month would be
glad to have one more month for
his rake-off. but unfortunately
the plan works both ways. The
