COMBATING OLQ AGE
i'* -J • V * THEORIES EXPOUNDED BY PRO FESSOR METCHNIKOFF. Russian Scientist, Amazingly Vigorous at 8eventy Years of Age, Tells How Human Life May Be Long Extended. Professor Metchnikoff is again dle> coursing on beneficent bacilli. Their Introduction into the system to de stroy pernicious microbes will post pone old age indefinitely, be main tains, with the result that no man need take a vacation to recuperate lost vitality. Metchnikoff at seventy works all the time with undiminished zest The fountain of youth which Ponce de Leon sought in 1513 in Flor ida he could have found at home in sour milk and natural sugar. For his years the Russian scientist is amazingly vigorous. He has been getting back and keeping his youth for 17 years. In a recent interview Metchnikoff seems to have said noth ing about exercise as an aid to health. His aim has been to prevent contami nation of the blood by intestinal poi sons which clog the human machinery by contact as they spread to organs and arteries. Presumably Metchnikoff, takes the air regularly, but science interests him much more than sport. Perhaps it can be Inferred that he does not .think the usual forms of exercise necessary if a proper microbe diet is practiced. The active agents MetchniKon nnas in the sugar of dates as well as In the laotfcs acid of prepared milk. He eats nothing that is not cooked; even his fruit must be stewed. The sour milk he takes at his “first breakfast,” which consists of vegetable bouillon and weak tea, besides the draft of bacilli. At lunch and dinner he eats a little meat, free of vegetables, and always compote of fruit. While other scientists of his age who do not fol low his system falter at their work in the laboratory, Professor Metchni koff knows no fatigue, finishing each day fresh and full cf enthusiasm. Yet he- comes of a Bhort-lived family. He insists that his physical condition proves beyond challenge that the the ory of beneficent bacilli is sound. Some of the physical culturists reach the same result by a system of bone twisting, muscle stretching and flushing the colon. One of them, San ford Bennett, a well-known business man. of San Francisco, is more vigor ous and nimble at seventy-two than Professor Metchnikoff is at seventy. Mr. Bennett, who eats what he pleases, holds the same theory of the debili tating and wasting effects Of intes tinal poisoning, but knowingly he does not consume certain kinds of bacilli to kill others. While a successful ex perimenter on himself, he is not a sci entist At fifty Bennett was a bilious and tired-out business man-'rapidly growing old. Today he has a fresh complexion, sleeps soundly, moves about like a healthy man of forty, and can go through a day’s bird shooting in the woods without fatigue. Assum ing that Professor Metchnikoff is right when he says that the battle of bacilli In the human system can be decided in favor of the Invaders introduced in natural sugar and sour milk, it might be worth while inquiring whether the bad bacilli are not killed by the meth ods of the unscientific San Francisco priest of youth in old age, although he makes no study at all of those food? that contain good bacilli. Easy to Open Gate. A simple device for the operation of the heavy and cumbersome barnyard gate Is that of attaching a wheel to the free or swinging end.
