the present generation to their detri­
ment as compared with those who exist­
ed “in old times,” if he will but look
around him as carefully as he lias
sought for the great things of the past,
will find his error. And then, if he will
but be converted, he will find himself
in better business as an admirer of tlie
present than as a worshiper of a mis­
represented past. In every sense the
people of to-day are wiser, richer, more
powerful ami happier than were their
forefathers. Mentally, physically, and
perhaps morally, we excel them.
While we are given isolated examples
of what they could do in the line of
wonderful feats of strength and endur­
ance, future generations will read in
history of our doings in such large
numbers as to far overshadow the past
as we know it. We can run faster,
throw further, and hit harder than
they could. Instead of showing a de­
cline in vitality, statistics bear out the
argument that the race has increased
the average duration of life and the
general level of health. Two principal
means by which this has been accom­
plished may be named —the extension
of the knowledge of sanitary and med­
ical science, and tlie invention of vast
improvements which have rendered
existence more wholesome and comfort­
able. So gradual lias been the advent
of these improvements in material
things that the result arising from their
use has not been marked by sufficiently
radical changes in the condition of man
to be noticed in one generation' but
statistics extending over a century
readily tell the tale. Statisticians now
calculate that the average man lives
nine years longer at the present time
than at the beginning of the century.
In the eighteenth the English govern­
ment as a means of revenue, sold an­
nuities on the lives of persons—a kind
of reversed insurance—but some years
ago the discovery was made that in­
stead of making money the government
was losing by reason of the increased
long levity of the annuitants. The
great improvement in wearing apparel
lias played no small part in bringing
about tliis condition of tilings, tlie ap­
parently insignificant Influence of rub­
ber garments being on tlie health of
the people a great factor for go««]. In
spite of numerous railroa«! accidents
and deaths from tlie deadly electric
wire as well as from other dangerous
implements placed in the hands of
man by science, human life is longer
and better than it was formerly. Ad­
ded to this is tlie fact tliat life is less
frequently destroyed by the liaml of
man. Figures show that in Queen
Elizabeth’s time there was every year
a murder in London to eacli 2,000 of
the population. At that rate 2,500

I nd ¡an wolves have lieen seen to leave
some of their number in ambush at
points on the edge of tlie jungle, while
others drove in antelopes feeding in the
open ground beyond. But wolves, as a
rule, hunt alone or in familit*s, except
when pressed by hunger. Wild dogs,
however, habitually combine to hunt,
ami Baldwin, in his “Game of Beugal”
mentions a case of four or five martins
hunting a fawn of tlie “muntjac” or
barking deer. But in real military or­
ganization ami strategy, monkeys are
far ahead of all other animals, and no
tably the different kinds of baboons.
Mansfield Parkins gives an excellent
account of tlie tactics of tlie dog-faced
hamadryads that liv«*d in large colonies
in tlie cracks in tlie cliff’s of tlie Abys­
sinian mountains. These creatures
use«i «Kcasionally to plan a foraging ex-
pedition into tlie plain below, and the
order of at tack was most carefully or­
ganized, tlie old males marching in
front and on the tlauks with a few to
bring up the rear and keep the rest in
order. They had a code of signals,halt­
ing or advancing according to the barks
of the scouts. When they reached the
corn fields the main ixxly plundered,
while the old mall's watched on all
sides, but took nothing for themselves*
The others stow«*! the com in their

They are also said to dig wells with
their hands and work in relays. The
Gelada baboons sometimes have battles
witli the Hamadryads, especially wlien
the two species have a mind to roll the
same field, and, if flglqing in the hills,
will roll stones onto their enemies. Not
long ago a colony of Gelada liaboons,
which had been fire«i at by some black
soldiers attending a duke of Coburg-
Gotha on a liunting expedition on the
borders of Abyssinia, block«*«! u pass for
some days by rolling rocks on all com­
ers. This seems to give some support
to a curious objection raised by a Chi­
nese lotail governor in a report to his
superior on the difficulties in the way
of opening to steamers the waters of the
upper Yang-Tse. The report, after no­
ting that the inhabitants on the upper
waters were ignorant men who might
quarrel with strangers, went on to al­
lege that monkeys inhabit«*! the banks
an«l they would roll down stones on
tlie steamers. The last two facts,” the
report added, would leud to «uiniplaint
from the English and embroil the ce­
lestials witli them,especially if the men
or the monkeys kill any English.”

Among the practical questions con­
nected with the subject of contagious
diseases is one whicli relates to the
lengt h of the period of special expos­
ure. The Boston Medical aad Suryioal
Journal says that the «»utagiousness of
measles, mumps and whooping-cough
disappear witli the patienl's recovery;
that there is probably no danger of
his conveying the disease to others
for about about a week after he himself
has been exposed to it —that is to saj-
during the so-ealled period of incuba­
tion: and that the contagiousness of
measles does not extend beyond a fort­
night. Some authorities affirm that
tlie contagiousness of whooping-cough
ceases after six weeks, however long
the coughing may continue; others
think it prudent to isolate tlie patient
until the paroxysms are over. In scar­
let fever and diphtheria the period of
incubation is brief, a few days only;
and during this period there is no con­
tagion. It is very important to know
that in scarlet fever the period of great­
est danger is after the disappearance
of the fever, the period of desquama­
tion or peeling. From ignorance of this
fact many lives have been lost. Per­
sons have gone into society before the
peeling was completed, and almost of
course have communicated tliedisease.
The fact that every particle of tlie scales
contain thousands of microbes. A lady
who was recovering from scarlet fever
wrote a letter to a distant friend. As
she wrote she blew from the pajier the
“dust” which peeled from her hands.
The letter conveyed the disease to her
friend and her little daughter, and the
daughter died. A servant nursed a
scarlet fever patient, and un her leav­
ing the plage she put her clothing into
a trunk. A year afterward she un­
packed the trunk, and a little girl who
stood by took the disease. In dyph-
theria the virus resides in the false
membrance, and for that reason is less
likely to be carried to a distance; but
the particles long retain their power of
infection. The contagiousness of <?on-
suniption lies in the patient’s expector-
tions and discharges. If these are care­
fully received in a disinfecting fluid,
there is almost no danger to attendants
and friends.— Youth's Companion.
