LINE NOT NEEDED
State Supreme Court Decides
Against Request of Perry
New Bloomfleld. Pa.. June 25. —
Efforts of the Perry County Tele
phone and Telegraph Company to
provide better telephone service be
tween New Bloomfleld and Newport
have been put to an end by the re
cent confirmation by the Supreme
Court of the State of a lower court
decision refusing permission for the
construction of an additional line.
R. J. Kakibbin, of Green Park,
general manager, and other officials
of the telephone company, desired
permission to construct an addi
tional line between the two boroughs,
a distance of about six miles, claim
ing that the large number of phones
in the two places and in the distance
intervening, warranted an additional
line to afford proper service. Per
mission to construct the line was de
nied by the Public Service Commis
sion during the past winter and an
appeal was taken to the Supreme
Court. It is held that the present
line, together with that of the Cum
berland Valley Company, renders an
additional line unnecessary.

tinually for some method by which
they may increase their llesh to nor
mal proportions by the filling out of
ugly hollows, the ro-tnding o ft of pro
truding angles with the attendant
bloom of health and attractiveness, it
is no wonder that many and varied
suggestions along this line appear
from time to time in public print.
While excessive thinness might be
attributed to various and subtle caus
es in different individuals it is a well
known fact that the lack of sufficient
phosphorous in the human system is
very largely responsible for this con
dition. Experiments on humans and
animals by many scientists have dem
onstrated beyond question of doubt
that a body deficient in phosphorous
becomes nervous, sickly and thin. A
noted author and professor in his.
book, "Chemistry and Food Nutrition"
published in 1918, says: "• • • that
the amount of phosphorous required
for the normal nutrition of man is
seriously underestimated In many of
our standard text books."
It seems to be well established that
this deficiency in phosphorous may
now be met by the use of an organic
phosphate known throughout English
speaking countries as Bitro-Phos
phate. Through the assimilation of
this phosphate by the nerve tissue
the phosphoric content when absorb
ed in the amount normally required
by nature soon produces a welcome
change in our body and mind. Nerve
tension disappears, vigor and strength
replace weakness and lack of energy,
and the whole body soon loses its ugly
hollows and abrupt angles, becoming
enveloped in a glow of perfect health
and beauty und the will und strength
