FACTS AND FANCIES. I A CORK tree is fifty years old before it pro- duces bark of a commercial value. FULLY 800,000 domestic animals, valued at 200,000, are annually devoured by the wolves in Russia. A MAHKIAGB market is held annually near Mo scow, and it is said that over 1,000 marriages are arranged there each year. AT WHAT AGE ABB WE STRONGEST? I The muscles, in common with all the organs iof the body, have their stages of development and decline; our physical strength increases up to a certain age, and then decreases. Tests of the strength of several thousands of people have been made, and the following are given as the average figures: The lifting power of a youth of seventeen years is 2801b.; in his twentieth year this increases to 3201b.; and in the thirtieth ,And thirty-first years it reaches its height, 3651b. -At the end of the thirty-first year the strength begins to decline, very slowly at first. By the fortieth year it has decreased 81b., and this diminution continues at a slightly increasing rate mntil the fiftieth year is reached, when the figure Mis 3301b. After this period the strength fails more and more rapidly until the weakness of old age ,,i-is reached. It is not possible to give statistics of -the decline of strength after the fiftieth year, as tit varies to a large extent in different individuals.
