Dr. Samuel G. Tracy.
The normal age of a man ought to be 125 years instead of the palmists three score and ten. This is the belief of Dr. Tracy. organiser of the Health and Longevity Club. "I believe," he said recently. "that a man should live five times his age after reaching maturity, which is generally twenty-five, and which would make man's allotted time on earth 125 Instead of the Biblical threescore and ten. Centenarians should be the rule instead of the exception, in fact, a man should not begin to age until he is eighty, and at one hundred he should be in possession of the vitality and faculties of the average man of fifty to-day." In order to attain to longevity in America Dr. Tracy says: "We must cultivate our digestion and our dispositions. We must learn to be cheerful and placid and mild." He thinks the American has a better chance to attain to longevity, because the "climatic conditions are generally favorable, and, what is more important, the stock is not worn out."
