It is rare that an animal dies of apoplexy, but man's days are frequently
ended by this disease, coming upon him generally later than the age of 50.
The contrast between the simple life of the animal and the complex one of
the man is in favor of the former, so far as it relates to health. At the
beginning, the young animal and the child are on the same natural footing,
both are nature's sweet and innocent children. Little by little the child
grows away from dependence upon natural methods for its guide, substituting
the artificial as life advances and ever becomes more complex. . . .
