At another lime during this visit Allingham writes, they talked •dreams. "Tennyson said: 'In my boyhood I hail intuitions of Immortality — Inexpressible! I have never been able to express them. 1 shall try some day.' 1 said that I, too, had Celt something of that kind, whereat Tennyson, being In one of his less nmlalile moods, growled: 'I don't believe yon huve. you say It out of rivalry.' " Allliifham describes Tennyson's fund- we** for strange antics, such as jumping round ami round like a pigeon, and adds, "He Is ilu> ->ulv person I ever s'iw \vho can do the most Imlircons without any of dignity." Lonfl Lived Icelanders It would Iw Interesting to know If any part of the world bents Iceland la the average lonffth of life of Its Inhabitants. It IH shown by stjjlstlcs that on an average the people of that Inland live to the age of 01.8 years, which Is very nearly double the mean duration of human llfo as It was computed a generation ago. Sweden and Norway are regarded as very healthful countries, but Iceland takes the palm In longevity, the mean duration of life In Sweden being 50.0li years and in Norway -I0.04 years. Home of Iceland's eiirtlupiakes are nerve racking; bul, on the whole, the lives of most of Us simple and Industrious tnhuhltiiuts slip along with few Incidents that unduly stimulate or depress the pulse.

The primitive Inhabitants of Kurope were all tenors. Their descendants of the present time are baritones, and future generations will have semlbass voices. The voice has a tendency to deepen with age The tenor of twenty becomes the baritone of twenty eight and the bass of thlrly six. The Inferior races have higher pitched voices than the more cultured. The negro has a higher voice than the white man. Among white races the fair complex- loned man lias a higher voice than his darker skinned brother. The former Is usually a baritone or a tenor, the latter a contralto or bass. It Is asserted that tenors are usually of slender build, whereas basses are stout, but there are too many exceptions to such a rule for It to be reliable. The same remark applies to the statement tlvtit thoughtful men have deep toned voices, and vice versa. The tones of a voice are perceptibly higher before than after a meal, for which reason tenors are generally careful not to sing too soon after dinner. Pearson's Weekly. The Oreen-riaruhall Co.
