A WONDERFUL DISCOVERY PRO
MULOATED IN CHICAGO.
(By Telegraph to Virginlan-Pllot.)
Chicago, 111.. May 10. -The Tribune
says: A discovery which, it is claimed,
solves the problem of circumventing old
tige, lias Just been made public by I'rof.
JOscph R. Hnwloy and Alex. C. Weiner,
of the Chicago Clinical School.
The return to youth, it Is asserted, !s
produced by hypodi rnllc Injections of
the lymphatic fluid of animals, parti?
cularly young goats.
The discovery was made u year ago
and subsequent secret demonstrations
of Us efllcacy are proved.
The general theory of the discovery
is that If the mineral deposits which
accumulate in the bones In the process
if life can be replaced with the life
ceils contained In ih i lymphatic glands
.of goats deterioration <u' the bones will
be prevented and elasticity and youth
wiil be retained In tlio system much
In one of his experiments at the
clinical sc hool Dr. llawlcy administered
hypodermic Injections of the fluid from
tho );? :.,,.i:a. |q -ia:. I. ... a g a; lo a d.o:
known to be fourteen years old.
A diagnosis of n portion of tin- femur
bef. the Injection showed the bone
contained large deposits of phosphate,
carbonate and soda.
The dog wii* watched carefully for
two months, (Hiring which frequent In?
jections of the lymphatic compound
were made. At the end of that time
am tlier diagnosis showed the larger
part of tho mineral deposits had been
removed artd the animal wns ns lively
ns a puppy. A number of human be?
ings, it is said, have been experimented
on In Chicago in tin- same way and
with the same result.
The apostles Of the discovery do hoi
claim that a man or woman thus
charged with goat's "life cells" will live
forever, but they say life will bo pro?
longed, perhaps doubled.
