Long life ii not in accident. It li oor
even en Inheritance, for the inheritance
of physical vrtallty infflclent to make a
centenarian may. be dissipated eney tn
20 yean of riotous living. The iclon of
a long lived race may die early (aa be
often haa died) of debility or wasting disease induced by unhygienic living. On the
otlier baud, a small stock of vital force
husbanded carefully may often prolong
life to a healthy and efficient old age.
A careful examination will show that
certain physical characteristics are usually associated with longevity. Perhaps
the most noticeable of these Is carriage.
Niiii'ty-nlne out of a hundred people
havt? curvature of tbo spine. The octogenarian Is the hundredth man. His
spine Is n straight line, his bead erect,
his chest broad and deep. This menus
thai the vital orpins are properly supported by the attachments provided by
nature and that tliey do not rest npou
ami crowd each otber. The heart, lungs,
stomach, liver and kidneys ure thus eu*
allied to do their work unimpeded, .aud
their activity in providing food for the
tutu's and in removing waste matter���
which Is the prime cnutte of disease���Is a
potent factor In longevity'. A large trunk,
with legs short In proportion, a straight
spine and nn erect curl-lane are among
tit1 most obvious characteristics of those
who attain great age.
A nut her characteristic, less evident to
the untrained observer, but equally Important. U the habit of slow, deep re*
plrntion. The oxygen Is the only real
food, for only the matter oxidised in tbe
pytttvm U'comes titotup. Deep, fnll brenth-
lus means nn Immensely Increased
aumuut of oxygen Ingested aud an equally augmented quantity of poisonous matter eliminated by the luugs. Mental
quietude is essential to proper breathing.
The excited mnn. the emotional Individual, who suffocates with joy, palpitates
with enthusiasm, chokes with rage,
gasps with astonishment, sighs from the
Intensity of bis attachments���tbe emotional Individual by every inequality In
his respiration abbreviates his life.
Another physical characteristic of longevity, most Important of all aud seldom or never noticed, la ease and repose
of movement. The old person���the bale,
vigorous, healthy old man���moves easily,
lightly, silently. Hc bas always moved
thut way. That's the reason be Is here
now Instead of with the others who,
with their gasps and sighs, their clinched
brows nnd twirling thumbs, tbeir intense
emotions and little complaints, are gone
and forgotten. Ease of movement and
grow depend upou muscular relaxation.
Muscular relaxation is impossible except
when tbe mind Is tranquil.
A fourth peculiarity of those who live
loug Is thnt tbey are invariably small
caters. Uurmands die young. The octogenarian Is always frugal. The enor-
���** mons physiological task of digesting
and excreting dally pounds of food uot
needed by tbe orgaulsm Is not performed
by the fmgnl eater, and so be has the
more vitality to expend In thought, in
working and In living out his century.
We live not so much because of wbat we
eat ns because of what we do not cat.
Much has been written on the subject of
longevity, but little that today possesses
nny beyond n merely literary Interest.
The liillmmce of occupation, of climate,
of stimulants, of location, of race and
breeding upon longevity opens Interesting
fields for discussion, but affects the matter only Indirectly.
T�� recapitulate: The four leading char
ncterlstlis of the Individual who attains
longevity nre large thorax, deep, full,
hIow breathing, muscular relaxation and
frugal habits regarding, diet. ��� Health

Something like 2i">0 years ago an Indian, while climbing up tbe steep slope nf
a bill hi pursuit of nu antelope, seised a
bush to help himself up. The plant gave
way, and tbo Indian fell backward, but
by a desperate effort saved himself and.
falling forward, eut the end of his nose
on the sharp point of a projecting rock.
The Indian looked ruefully at the point
of tbe rock tbat had done tbe damage
and, to his surprise, saw tbat It was
almost pure silver. This Is how tbt famous silver mines of SCacatecas, Mexico,
are uid to have beeu discovered.
Another rich Mexican mine' owes Ita
discovery to a rabbit. An Indian aud bis

Indian wanted tbo rabbit ao badly that
ht got a spade and began to dig tho little

There Is an Interesting historical collection In the library of congress. It consists of remnants of flags wbich were
(town from the vessels that are famous la
tbe history ot the country. This collection was found among the possessions,
which Included all sorts old literary oddities and a valuable collection of autographs, left by tbe late Peter Force, a native ot New Jersey, whose father was a
veteran of the Revolution. Force held
many military and civil offices In Washington.   He died there In 1808.
Tbe bits of flags have been carefully
preserved In a large album between
brown paper leaves, each leaf bearing the
record and something of the history of
the patch of bunting attached to it. Tho
moBt striking part of the -exhibit is tbat
devoted to Perry's captures on Lake
Brie In September, 1818. There is a
piece ot the flag which was flown from
Perry's flagship In the contest mads
memorable by his warning, "Don't give
up tbe ship." There are also, pieces of
the flags of the ships of tbe enemy captured on that occasion���the Queen Charlotte, Little Belt, Lady Prevost, Muntoa
aud Cbipueway.
Another interesting remnant Is that of
the flag of the Alliance, tbe ship which
was of the fleet John Paul Jones formed
In France, with the Bonhomme Richard
as flagship, the purpose of which was the
attacking of British ships during the
Revolution. It was the Alliance which
took an insignificant part, to the discredit of her eccentric*commander, a Frenchman named Landals, In the fight with tho
Berapls. Tbe bit of flag Is bt that carl-led during the fight.
Another Interesting flag represented Is
that of L'Insurgeute. This flag was captured by Traxtun, who commanded the
Constellation in an engagement on Feb.
0,1700. It was the first opportunity that
bad occurred since the close of tbe Revolution for an American naval vessel to
get alongside of an enemy, and the hopes
of the American officers and men for a
spirited combat were realised, for the
French frigate, under Captain Bnrreault,
promptly replied to the Constellation's
fire. In this contest a young midshipman, David Porter, performed bis first
act of gallantry. He was in command of
the foretop ot the Constellation and, acting on his own responsibility, prevented
the tall of the topmast aud all Its hamper. The victory achieved by Truxtun
produced great joy In America and established a faith In the navy which has remained unshaken to this day.
A bit ot flag which Is also memorable
Is that of Le Berceau, captured by the
Boston, under Captain Little. The American ship -wrouffbt great havoc on board
the French corvet, which had the reputation of beiug one of the fasteBt ships
in the French marine.
A celebrated shred Is that of the flag
of the Guerrlere, taken in the famous
fight with the Constitution, under Hull.
This was the contest where each side
displayed the supreme art of seamanship
and naval strategy, and Dacres, commander of the Giicuiere, suffered no loss
of professional fame by the defeat, so
signal was his efficient handling of his
vessel. It was the flrst serious conflict
In the war of 1812. The flag was taken
down by Lieutenant -George Campbell
Read, who was in command of the prise
crew and who, on finding the Guerrlere
wns sinking, set Are to the wreck.
Tbe English ship Macedonian, which
was captured by Decatur In October,
1812, Is also represented in the collection.
The capture of the Macedonian added to
the glory of Decatur, who had carried the
ship Into New York with another British vessel captured at tho same time. The
flog of tbe Frolic, captured In November,
1812, by the sloop Wasp, under Jacob
Jones, Is also represented. In the exhibit are also two pieces of flags ot the
Reindeer and Avon, captured by tht
Wasp, under Blakely, the former In July
and the latter In September, 1814.
The Constitution In December, 181%
Bslnbrldge having succeeded Hull, captured tbe Java, and the flag of tbe latter
ship contributes a strip to the Force collection. Tbere Is a piece of the flag of
tbe Peacock, captured In February, 1813,
by Lawrence on the Hornet. This was
the flag which, after half an hour's fighting, was not only lowered, but reholsted,
union down, in the foreriggtng as a signal of distress. The.Peacock suddenly
sank, and the two American prise officers
and most of the men saved themselves
only after great exertion. Tbe American
ship Peacock, under Captain Warrington, captured the British frigate Eper-
vler tn April, 1814, and the flog of the
defeated ship Is represented In the collection. In September of the same year
Burrows, a somewhat eccentric but popular officer ot great 'courage, captured the
Boxer. He forfeited his life In the
gagement, being but 28 years old. A
piece of the flag of the Boxer la In tho
Macdonough's victories on Lake Cham-
plain, achieved In 1814, are represented
by tbe remuonts of the flags of the Con-
fiance, Linnet and Chubb. The last ot
the naval flags in the exhibit Is tbat of
tbe Levant, which terminated the marvelous exploits of tbe Constitution, "Old
Ironsides," as sho bad come to be endear
Ingly termed.. Sbe was then under Stewart.
Many of the actions which these flags
represent established the fame of our
nnvnl officers. Congress In many Instances bestowed medals for tbo gal-
luiitry then displayed.���Chicago Inter

The rag carpet business Is not what It
used to be. Any oue with an eye for carpets might infer as much from tbe abundance and the low prices of serviceable
carpets not made of rags to be seen tn the
housefurnisblng stores.
Many of fair experience In life of today
hardly know what a rag carpet ts. For
tbe information of such It may be as well
to say a rag carpet Is a woven fabric In
which the place of yarn Is Taken by narrow strips of rag sewed together. Any
old rags will do for the purpose, though,
to be sure, the material ought to be
strong enough to stand aome strain In tbe
process of weaving and some hard wear
after It has been woven,
A veteran weaver ot rags stts at his
loom In an east side basement and recalls
tbe time when, 83 years ago, he came to
New York from Bavaria and found more
than 1,000 band weavers of rag carpets
"Some dead, some gone to 'different
places or taken up other trades," be answers If you ask him what has become
of all these skilled artisans. "There was
no work tor them any more. If it was
not for the hospitals and the old women's
homes I would uot have enough work to
make a living. Tbere are not more than
15 of us left In New York now. I only
know of three on the east side."
His allusion to the hospitals and homes
Is explained by the custom of employing
old end feeble women who are past almost all other kinds ot work to cut and
sew together the strips of rags for making these carpets.
These strips are brought to the weaver
In large balls and are wound on the shuttles by means ot an ancient spinning
wheel. The carpets, once woven, make
warm, noiseless, economical floor cover
tugs In hospitals and such places.
Given the balls ot rags, all properly
sewed, the weaver charges only about 80
cents a yard for making tbt carpet, and
It Is a yard wide. The work Is harder,
perhaps, than the weaving of threads,
however thick, bnt to judge of tbe craftsmen by this one specimen they art a sturdy brotherhood.
This one Is about 60 years old, and
though under middle height he looks as
If he could easily put down the average
wrestler of 25. In his own particular
craft of wrestling with a substantlsl
loom his stint ot work for an hour Is not
much under a yard, and he can weave
from 0 o'clock In the morning to 8 in the
evening, or longer at a pinch.���American
Tho Voloo of n Woman Hoard From
tho Grave.
Bishop Samuel Fallows of the Reformed Episcopal church, Chicago, told a
marvelous story of psychical phenomena
In which he asserts that a husband heard
bis wife calling after she bad been buried
and that on hastily reopening the grave
be found her unconscious, but still alive.
The minister declined to give tht real
names, using the name of Smith.
As Bishop Fallows told the story, some
years ago Mrs. Charles Smith, the wife
of a young man living on the North Bide,
was taken seriously 111 and died In a short
time. She was not embalmed and was
buried two or three days later In Rose
Hill cemetery.
Sbe was burled In the afternoon. In
the middle of the night Mr. Smith wat
awakened by some one calling his nnme.
He beard the name two or three times,
"Charles, Charles," very distinctly. He
did not associate the volet with any ont
he knew and said to himself that it was
a hallucination. Being a men of materialistic views, he attached no manning to
the matter and soon toll into a troubled
sleep again.
After nwhile he was awakened by tht
voice again, this time more Insistent,
"Charles, Charles, Charles!"
Just as day was breaking for the third
time be heard the call again, this time en-
treatlngly, the minister declares. This
time he recognised the voice very dis*
tlnctly as that of his wife. Moved by
some uuex plain able Impulse, he sprang
up, searched the room thoroughly, found
uo one and rushed In to where a friend
was asleep.
"Come, get upt Wt must go to Rose
HUH" be cried.
His friend tried to dissuade htm, but to
no purpose. Tbey harnessed a horse to a
light buggy, took spades and pickaxes
and drove to the cemetery at breakneck
speed. As quickly as possible they dug
down to the coffin and opened lt Tht
young wife was Just turning over in tht
Although alive, she waa unconscious.
Presumably she bad been in a stupor tht
entire time. She was taken home, recovered, and is alive today. She has no Idea
tbat she was ever burled alive, and probably If she had known all the circumstances at that time tbe shock would
have killed her. She was told that she
hnd been very 111 and bad recovery! almost miraculously.-

Tbe old gentleman chuckled and nqde

In tbe Tillage of Chippewa, and
along tbe Niagara frontier, tbere I. probably no better known or respected residents than Mr and Hn. David Soha-
be). Both are of German descent and
display mnoh of tbat old fashioned bos*
pitality so olteu fonnd in the fatherland. To a correapondent ot the St
"Catherines Star, who reoently called at
Hr. Sohabel'i home Mrs Sohabel related the following story:���"Years ago
my phyiioian told me I had heart disease. I have been troubled at interval,
with palpitation and severe pain., and
some times my heart wonld almost
cease to neat. I wonld become dizzy,
restless and frightened. At other times
I slept badly and had troublesome
dreams. I lingered In this state until
last winter, when exposure t* cold
affected my kidneys and completely
proetrated me. T. e spring came, when
my oomplalnts were furtber aggravated
by stomach tronble. I loathed food
and oould realise that I wai daily
growing weaker. Hy physician's treatment wonld sometimes slightly benefit
me, then again I waa worse than ever.
Finally, after all hope wu apparently
gone and a large aom of money had
been thrown away for medioines tbat
did me no good, a friend strongly advised me to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, two boxes of whioh were brought
me at the beginning of the summer for
1899. I used them and to my joy noticed improvement. 1 oontlnned the
use of the pills faithfully nntil I had
taken eight boxes. I am now able to
attend to all my housework, feeling
entirely oured. I have never had better health than I am now enjoying.and
aince discontinuing tbe pills have had
no symptoms of the old complaints. I
feel that I am under life-long obligations for the benefit I have derived
from'Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
will oontinue to praise tbem when op*
