WHEN DOES OLD AGE BEGIN.

WHEN DOES OLD AGE BEGIN. An interesting meeting will be held shortly in London for the discussion of the question What period of life should be termed old age ? That is a subject which has always presented a certain amount of fascination, and no dount it was debated by a good many people before it inspired Cicero to produce one of the most famous of the classics. But there was an essential difference between the Latin author and the men who are to discuss the question on October 13th. Cicero, who wrote so de- lightfully on old age, died at sixty-three, but the gentlemen who are to contribute to the approaching debate are all between eighty and ninety years of age, and it is stated that they are still actively engaged in literary, medical, or other work. Such an assembly ought to be able to give us some useful hints. The meeting is to be held under the auspices of the London Vegetarian Association, but if the speakers are to be vegetarians it is to be hoped they will not ride their hobby too keenly. As they know, the great majority of people are not vegetarians, and, although they may regret that fact, yet it would be well for them to take humanity as it is rather than as they think it should be.
