M. HOLT SCHOOLING, of Brussels, says Chambers's Journal, has been calculating the age to which a human being may reasonably expect to live. His calculation, however, is only applicable to cases in which the ages r inge between 12 and 86. The method is really an old one, and was originally discovered by the Mathematician Demoivre, who in 1865 emigrated from France to England, and became a member of the Royal Society. The rule is this; Subtract your present age from 86, divide the remainder by two, and the result will give the number of years which you may expect to live. The rule represents the nearest solution of an insoluble problem at which we can arrive.
