COMPARATIVE MATTER [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 3 October 1914
COMPARATIVE MATTEI% Age, like beauty, is a matter of individual opinion. To the girl in her teens, the -iper maiden of tweity-five seems quite aged. Twenty-two thinks thirty-five ,an old thing."' -Thirty-fise dreads forty, but son gratulate herself that there may still re tsain some ground to be possessed in the fifteen years before the half-century is at tained. bot fifty does not by any means give up the battle of life. It feels middle aged and vigorous, and thinks old age a long way in the future. Sixty remembers those who have done great things at three score; and one doubts tF Parr, when he was mar ried at ons hundred and twenty, had at all egun to feel himself an old man. It is the :sire of life within us which makes us feel young so long. If we lose that, old age soon takes possession of us, mind and body.

His whole nervous system was so prostrate that iis limbs almost refused their oltices.
