The common Idea 1. that longevity
VpomH oatltt'ljr on inherited eonstitu
ion. The man whose father and
nothor. grandparents and great-grand-pnifiits
atlnlned a high arernge afro Is
snippifeed to hare a much buttor chance
ot long life thtin one whoie foi-efalh-rs
have Ihsoii short-lived... Probably there
is much truth in this Idea; but it U not
Improbable, and the point seems worth
careful study, that longevity U alTVcted
indirectly rather thnii dirccily by iu
herltanee. It may well bo that tin?
descendantof long-lived folk Is apt to be
long lived, not jsolely or chiefly because
he Inherits constitutional peculiarities
tending to length of life, but because
he Inherits qualities leading to temper
ance and abstinence by which life is
prolonged, or even simply because
temperance and abstinence hare been
encouraged during hi youth by ex
ample and by precept.
Considering the question of longevity
from this point of view, the case of
Iouis Cornaro, which has always been
nought most Instructive, "becomes full
also of encouragement.
In the first place. It must be remem
bered that Cornaro (who was born ai
Venice about (ho year 1467) was n man
of weak constitution. Moreover, from
the age of eighteen to that of thlrly-fivi-ha
' porsaed course that would have
seriously taxed the atrongest constitu
tion, l.ife at thirty-fire was a burden
to him because of the disorders brought
on by riotous living and indulgence It:
erery kind of excess. Tim next iiv
rears were passed in almost unremitted
mO'ering. II was lold by hi phy
ieians, when forty years old, that noih--ijf
could prolong his life for more than
vo or I I'.itc years, but such life as re
named to him might be les painful
ban the years he had recently lived If
ie would adopt more tempeiale habits.
If ever there was a case where Inherited
ocstitntiott and pn intemperate lift
threatened an early d -nth, this w it-
one. Hut, as events befell, it turned
out that, if ever there was a case when
"life-preserving Influence of wise regi
men and abstemious habits was demon
it rated. Corner, a mnn be cited as c-
At the ago of fort' Cornaro began
gradually to reduce the quantity of
food, both liquid and solid, which he
;ok each day, till at length he onh
:ook what nature absolutely required.
He tells us that at first he found tlii
Mjvere regimen very disagreeble, and
confesses that "he relniwed from time
to time to the fieh-jn,U of Egypt."
But by reundng his cd"irt after each
failure he succeeded. In less than a
year, in adopting permanently a spare
tnd moderate system. Hy this time he
was already restored to perfect health.
But thus fur he had only foltowcd tin
counsels of the physicians somewhat
more steadily than they expected, or
than is nsu! in such cases, ami there
fore with unexpected gool result. It
was after he had recovered his health
that he went on to those experiment
by which he aetm-d to show how life
may be extended far beyoud tha Ftial
From temperance he proceeded to
abstcmlo isness. Undeterred by the
donbts of his phvsichins as to the wisr
Join of such a course, he diminished
his daily allowance of food, until at last
tho yelk of an egg snfliced him foi a
meal! .Throughout the time when he
was thus reducing his allowance of fowl
his health and spirits kept improving.
Say, he tells ns that even his enjov
.nent in eating had increased, for he
ays he could now get more pleasure
from a small meal of dry bread than he
had ever obtained in the days of his ex
cesses from the most exquisite dainties
f the table. As regards regimen,
Cornaro simply "avoided extremes of
heat and cold, over-f;i'igue. late hours,
excesses, and all violent passions of the
mind;" he took moderate exercise in
the open air; and his chief pleasures
were those obtained from liferary and
artistic study, from the contemplation
of one scenery, noble building, beauti
ful combinations- of color and sweet
When Cornaro was within two vcars
of four score his diet w as regulate! in
quality and quantity, as follows: In
four meals - he took each day twelve
unces in all of solid food, consistitfg
of bread (stale, of courie, fur be was

egg, and soup.--mm m A. rroclor, tn

If the stomach of the horse were
more fully understood Its feeding
would be more carefully attcuded to. I
The benefit that comes from food
conies through tha process of digestion
that is carried on in the stomach, and
even while the process "CI feeding is
going on. In comparison with the ox,
the stomach of the horse is quite small.
It is claimed that the stomach of the
ox baa a capacity of 250 quarts, while
that of the horse is only about sixteen
quarts ; so as a consequence whatever
is in the stomach after it is filled must
be expelled into the intestines if feed
ing is continued. In that case, if the
process of digestion is incomplete the
result is an expulsion of the food with
out serving the purpose for which it is
intended. I-or that reason in the use
of concentrated food in connection
with coarse fodder, there must be an
axercise of judgement or the feeding
will do little good. Thus oats may be
fed to a horse and followed by hay to
such an exteut as to expel the oats
wholly from the stomach, in which
case t.io only benefit derived is from
the amount of digestion going on dur
ing the period of eating. The office of
the stomach being to digett the nitro
genous portion of the food, and as a
stomach full of oats contains about
four or live times as much nitrogenous
matter as when filled with hay, either
the stomach must secret its gastric
juice five times as fast or the period of
digestion must tie five times as long.
If a concentrated food like oats is to be
fed with hay the latter should be fed
first aud then the grains, thus giviDg
ample time frr digestion between

Peas and beans should be left on

wrinkled, when they should be picked
and spread until they are quite dry.
Small quantities may be shelled by

Hail. Keep them in a dry place.
Melon, cucumber, squash and pump
kin seeds should be taken only from
ripe, perfect shaped specimens. In a
small way the seeds may be simply
taken out, spread out on plates or tins
aud dried. Larger quantities have to
be washed before drying, to remove
tha slime that adhers to them. When
the seeds are thoroughly dried, tie
them in bags, and keep in a dry place
secure from mice and rata.
Beets, parsnips, turnips, carrots,
onions, cauliflower and cabbage will
not produce reed until the second
year. Set out in early May strong,
well-matured plants of last season's
crop. When the seed is ripa, cut the
stalks and put under cover to dry, then
beat out the seeds and tie in paper
Seeds of all kinds should be fully
riie when gathered, but it is also im
portant to harvest them as soon as they
aie ripe. For keeping small quanti
ties of seed, paper bags are preferable
to cloth, as they fiord better protec
tion against moisture and insects.
Always mark each package with the
name of the seed contained in it, and
the year in which it grew. Cold does
not injure the vitality of seeds, but
moisture is detrimental to all kinds.
Those who feed grain in addition to
grass, and feed It intelligently, so far
as we have ever heard them give an
opinion, believe that it iys. One

that it requires only half a much

Wet, muddy feet and legs are fully

teaches the animal in a state of nature
to avoid such unwholesome exposures,
but man has obliged them to grovel in
such miserable places and is therefore
responsible for the results.
Finely chopped clover hay moist
ened with water that has been sliahtly

Store beets, carrots, parsnips and
turnips in bins in the cellar, and pack
them in dry sand or earth and they

method will enable the farmer to nse

tho case if they bo stored in mounds
in the open air.
Give to tho cows none but the best

is this so essential, for the reason that
it has been fully demonstrated by com

very proline source of transmitting
disease germs from impure food.
