Excerpt from Human Anatomy, Physiology, and Hygiene: With Special Reference to the Effects of Stimulants and Narcotics, for Use in Primary and Intermediate Schools This allegory is unfortunately true, and few people who are born into the world live past middle life, and such are apt to be less strong and well than in youth. Very many die when they are little children of diseases or accidents which are the trap-doors Of the vision. Others are pushed through, which means that they are killed in battle or starved by the greediness of others, or that they are led by their companions on the dangerous trap-door of drink, which every year Opens for more people to drop through than are killed in all the bat tles all over the world. The bubbles which many chase are riches and pleasure. But if one has not health to enjoy them they are of no value. In Olden times people were always seeking for the Elixir of Life, which would make them live forever. They never found it. But today wise men realize that the nearest thing to the Elixir is knowledge - knowledge Of how to make our bodies large and strong, how to prevent sickness, and how to live as long as possible.
