NEW YORK. Aug. 18. Dr. H. F.
EiKKar, physician to John D. Rocke
feller, threatens to play golf with his
famous patient in their hundredth
year. We say "their" advisedly, since
both men are now eighty-two years
ojage. ani the doctor says there is no
good reason why they both shouldn't
reach the century mark.
"Anyone who follows his sensible
way of living: can live to be a centen
arian,"' says Dr. Bigsar of Sir. Rocke
feller. "He can eat anything, but he ob
serves one of the prime laws of health
to eat moderately. His ;ood sense
tells him that moderation in diet is a
prerequisite of endurance."

Is woman's chance better or worse
than man's to reach a ripe old age?"
Investigation shows some startling
facts. For instance:

Married women who buy insurance

These facts have been called to our
attention by a high official of a well-
known insurance company, who says

"This 'expectation of life' in wom

the a,'e of ten years, was fifty-four
years, ivhlie for men it was fifty-one.
"Taken on from twenty-five years,
the average 'expectation' of men was
thirty-nine years, and in the cases of
women It was forty-one. This means
that the average man would live twen-ty-f.ve
plus thirty-nine years, and the
averaee woman would live twenty-five
plus forty-one years.
"Taken at forty-five, men may ex

fourteen more years to look forward
to and the woman still fifteen. I am

the seventy-five mark is reached, if

Why Women Have ISest Chance.
'.'How do we account for women be
ing ahead? Well, perhaps less ex
posure to the hardships and accidents
of life, less chance of violent deaths.
Vow we come to insurance statistics.
"The Medical Actuarial of Mortality
Investigation, published in 1913. deals
with tho deaths of insured lives and
shows mortality rates among the va
rious classes, as compared with the
average mortality of the country.
"The number of deaths amon? wom
en is 104 per cent of what they would
be if the mortality of women had
open the same as the average mortal
ity for all 'risks,' or for the total class.
"That Is, for every one hundred
deaths, counted among general policy
holders, we would get' one hundred
and four among women.

Mortality Among Drinkers.
"People Interested in different as
pects of prohibition frequently like to
show a higher rate of mortality among
drinkers than abstainers. Py drink
ers I refer to the regular drinkers, not
the men who get spells of drunken
ness, out tne good rellow' who takes
a little all the time.
"The total abstainers and the three-tn-four-drlnks-a-day
fellow differ in
l other respects than their bibulous
habits. The 'good fellow' very likely
has irregular habits of life. He eats
at odd hours anil neglects to get
enough sleep. It is hard to determine
how much of his condition is due to
drink and how much to other causes
wh;ch go with his type of nature."

these regulations of highway traffic.
It has been the practice here by the
police not to arrest an auto driver

Each time a traffic officer "warns"
on autoist a record, Including the
license number of the driver's car, is
made at police headquarters.
In order to avlod. the third ''warn

diately after being "warned" tho
second time, buy new license tags
bearing a different license number. .
Not only do they avlod the humiliat
