LONGEVITY IN EUROPE.—This age of ccience appa- rently omits but little in its grasp, and attention seems turned to the length of life in various countries, Oc- casionally we hear of old men and women whose years extend beyond the century, and often of those who can count ninety and a tew years beyond. Some statistics recently obtained, however, give some ade- quate idea of longevity in Europe, which are culled by the British Medical Journal from the Administra- tive Statistical report of Vienna. From researches, it appears that of _iU^,ool individuals who have ex- ceeded the age of ninety, and whose existence has been ascertained in the last cenBtues in the great European States, there were 60,303 women and 42,528 men. In the case of women longevity is more plainly percep- tible by comparing the number of human beings re- ported in the census aa having reached or even passed the age of one hundred years. In Italy, 241 female centenarians against 141 males were found; in Austria. 229 women against 183 men; in Hungary, 526 women against 524 men. In Austria, the number of sexagenarians ia stated at 1,508,359, 7 5 of the whole population,
