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. In many
instances farm gates are so long that
the ordinary hinge is not strong enough
to support the entire weight, and it
is necessary to allow the f£ee end to
rest on the ground.
Lively Town.
First Boomer—“You fellows have no
glt*up about you at all. Why don’t
you have photographs of your town
taken, like we did? Are yon ashamed
of it?” Rival Boomer—"Naw, that
ain’t the reason at all. I want yon to
understand, young fellah, that our
town don’tstand still long enough to
be photographed.”—1Terre Haute Ex
press. ; -
' Alpaca.
In spite of attempts to introduce the
alpaca into countries away irona its na-’
tive habitat, failure has attended
them. It is rarely found below an
altitude of 5,000 feet Its wool is
of an exceedingly fine luster and qual
ity, and occasionally attains a length
of six inches.

CALOMEL WHEN BILIOUS? NO! STOP! !

Calomel is mercury or quicksilver

Calomel, when it comes into contact
with sour bile crashes into *t, breaking

have headache, dizziness, coated

sour just try a spoonful of harmless
Dodson’s Liver Tone.
Here’s my guarantee—Go to any
drug store or dealer and get a BO-cent

Within ten minutes after an appli

wavy, and have an appearance of
abundance; an incomparable luster,
softness and luxuriance.

as any—that it has been neglected or
injured by careless treatment—that’s
all—you surely can have beautiful hair
and lots of it if you will just try a lit

So Pleasant.
It was a club dinner, , and Mrs. An

next to Mrs. Murgridge, a society
woman of prominence. Wishing .to
engage in conversation with the social
leader, Mrs. Anderson remarked: *
“I understand that you have a son
who Is studying music, Mrs. Mur
gridge.”
“Yes, my son is a great musician/'
replied the social leader, rather coldly.
"He is now ytuding in the Paris con
servatory.”
“Really 1 How nice!” replied the so
cial aspirant. “It must be so pleasant
to be able to sit among flowers all
day and not disturb anyone with the
practicing.”

The valiant Sir Knight had been
boasting of his victorious deeds before
the fair company.
"I heard of one engagement whkb
you have failed to mention, forsooth,”
remarked Sir Gregory.

“No; this was a certain charge in

DRINK LOTS OF WATER
TO FLUSH THE KIDNEYS
Eat Less Meat and Take 8alte for
Backache of Bladder Trouble—
_ Neutralize Acids.
Uric acid In meat excites the kid*
neys, they become overworked; get
sluggish, ache, and feel like lumps of
lead. The urine becomes clopdy; the
bladder Is irritated, and you may be
obliged to seek relief two or three
times during the night When the kid
neys clog you must help them flush
off the body’s urinous waste or you’ll
be a real sick person shortly. At first
you feel a dull misery in the kidney
region, you suffer from backache, sick
headache, dizziness, stomach gets sour,
tongue coated and you feel rheumatlo
twinges when the weather is bad.
Bat less meat, drink lots of water;
also get from any pharmacist four
ounces of Jad Salts; take a table
spoonful in a glass of water before
breakfast for a few days and'your
kidneys will then act fine. This fa
mous salts is made from the acid of
grapes and lemon Juice, combined
with llthla, and has been used for
generations to clean clogged kidneys
and stimulate them to normal activity,
also to neutralize the acids in urine,
so it no longer is a source of irrita
tion, thus ending bladder weakness.
Jad Salts is inexpensive, cannot in
jure; makes a delightful effervescent
lithia-water drink which everyone
should take now and then to keep the
kidneys clean and active. Druggists
here say they sell lots of Jad Salts to
folia who believe In overcoming kid
ney trouble while it ia only trouble.—

Good Reason
The witness for the defense had
been examined when the prosecuting
solicitor stood up to cross-examine
and crush him.
Solicitor—Why did you hide Sulli
van in your house on that Saturday
night?
Witness—I did not see Sullivan at
all on that night.
Solicitor (knowingly)—Will you
swear your wife did not hide Sullivan
on that night?
Witness (hesitatingly)—Ye-es.
Solicitor (more knowingly)—Will
your wife swear that she did not hide
Sullivan in your house on that night?
Witness (more hesitatingly)—Well
—I—don’t think—so.
Solicitor (most knowingly)—Ah!
And perhaps you can tell the court
how it is that you can swear your wife
did not hide him while she cannot
swear the same thing? Speak up, now,
and tell the truth.
Witness (unhesitatingly) — Well,
you see, I’m not married.
