The law of animal existence seems to be that all animáis should live five times the period of their growth. A dog grows uirtil two years of age; hls life period is ten or twelve years; a horse grows until five; his period ia twenty-five. An elephant does not get his growth until he is twenty and his average growth is one hundred years. So with man; he grows and physically developes until he is twenty and ought to live to the age of one hundred. But, alas! a eentenarian is regarded with a strange curiosity; while the death of half the human family at the age of seven excites no surprise. Should one-half of the progeny of the lower animáis die at or soon af ter birth, it would eend consternation through the community, but theee young humans drop and the mourning parents are expected to be consoled by the reflection that it is a "mysterious Providence." The mystery about it is that while the brutes are left to the iaws of God in nature, man- this wiser animal- violates all these Iaws f rom the tirst moment of bcing.- M.
