At the end o£ the Mrt year the strength begins to decbne, very slowly at first. BV the 40th year it has decreased ciirht pounds; and this diminution continues at a slightly increasing rote until the EOth year is reached, when the furure is 330 pounds. After this period the strength tula more and more rapidly until the weak- cess of old age is reached. ^ is not possible to give the statistics of the decline of strength after the 50th year, as it varies to a large extent in different individuals.

They were slow ill gathering in the hall Mid the somewhat diminished attendance showed that the fear expressed Thuraday by Mr. Shinn, of Kansas, tlmt the do.ltgat.-t could not all be kept here, was well founded. The lenders of the party who were early on the scene;-notably Senator ,Tones v ot Nevada, expressed tlie opinion oeforc the proceedings began that this wouk be the la.st day of tlie convention, ami this fxelins was shared by most of those present. Senator Stewart, of AVvudu, was early in thelinll.his first appearance in the convention. At 10:30, Chairman St. John appearc-.l on" the pint form, niM poured a glass of water out of a silver pitc.hor fin tlie c'lui-irnuin's desk.

'Rut it passed without being pressed. The rest, of the national committee wms announced and ilu- members were, requested to meet immediately upin adjournment. ' A motion was made nnrl agreed to, authori/ing: the .committee to fill vacancies.' • The matter of counting the veterans of tlie late war, under the resolution offered Thursday by Mr. Strong; o. Illinois, came up and Mr. .T. W. Rhodes, of Washington, addressed the conven-. tion. ' . . , The veteran resolution was lostsignt of temporarily in a second tumultuous demand for a speech from Senator Stewart, to which he responded. The convention again took up the veteran soldier resolution, and it was tie-, elded to call the roll of states that the chairmen of delegations might an : nounce the number of the veterans in each state delegation. The call resulted in showing 106 union soldiers 18 confederate nnd 4 Mexican soldiers represented in the convention. Outol the Tolleall grew a suggestion which crystalli/ed into a motion, which was agreed to, that all soldiers and sailors of the union, confederate and Mexican wars form the basis of an organization within the party for campaign purposes —to save the union. ' Woinen'H National Silver tcrteue. Mrs, Helen M. Gougar, of Indiana called a meeting of the ladies present ior the afternoon to form a woman s national silver league. [Cheers.] Miss Helen Hartnett Mitchell, of Alton Kan., was introduced and stated that being inspired by the nomination of Bryan, although she had never writr "n a poem, she had written one on "The Wail of William Whitney. She recited it to the convention, H was semi-humorous, and the various bit* at Whitney, Hill and Depew aroused intense enthusiasm. At the close of the ,coltotton many of the delegates arose and expressed their feelings by shout, iBg and waving hats, .handkerchiefs and flags. If was the most enthusiastic ovation of the convention. ; C E Scott, of Omaha, a republican, said that he would work to bury the party he had left, Whitney had made the announcement that something should be done. He wished to inform Mr. Whitney that something would be done. Reference was made by a delegate on the floor to Cleveland. Ee- nlvinL' to this, Mr. Scott said: "O, God, give us cyclones If they must;come, war famine and pests, but, 0, God, in Thy mercy, save us from another four years of Grwer Cleveland." He crflled in conclusion for three cheers for Bryan, and they were given with a will. . H R B. McAiver, introduced as,a rebel general, addressed the convention, prefacing his remarks by a confession (hat he was a confederate captain only, not a general: An officeholder under Cleveland, hut heing a silver.man, he said, he left the-sen-ice because he could no.longer remain with one who had done so much to degrade, d^emoc- Tudge Thompson, of Washington, proposed three, cheers and a tiger for the patriotic sentiments of the speaker.

Many years ago. as Bismarck was strolling in the suburbs of Friedrichsrube with his two Jiounds, lie was accosted by a Bohemian peddler and asked to buy a plain meerschaum pii>e of the type that Bismarck most affected. At first Bismarck declined, but the peddler claimed for the pipe the power oC forecast, nnd tqld him he would serve three emperors as minis ter nnd that three important changes in his life would be foretold by acci dents 'befalling the pipe.

THE BRAIN. No<irl.I.«.l More"rn7o OthOT Organ", nonce Docs Not Grow Old. There nre two parts of the human or- ~anism, which, if wisely used, torge- ? y escape the decay of old age. The»o two are the brain and the heart. Persons who think often wonder why brain-workers-great statesmen onl othc rs-should continue to work with almost unimpaired activity and energy unto c period when most of the organs and functions of the body are in a condition of advanced decay. The normal brain remains vigorous to the last, because its nutrition is especially provided for. About middle life or" a little later, the general arteries of the body begin to lose their elasticity, and to weaken slowly but surely. They become, therefore, much less efficient carriers of the nutrient blood of the capillary areas. But this ,s not the ens* with the internal carotids, which supply the capillary areas of tha brain. On the contrary, these large res- scls continue to retain their elasticity so that the blood pressure remains higher than within the capillary area of any othrir organ of the body. Tho blood paths of the brain being thus kept open, the brain tissue is better nourished than the other tissues of the body. • , Qno«n Victoria's Gift Fountain.
