Declares After Experimenting For Quarter of Century He Can Pro duce Life Artificially. Through incorporation of a society "to place before the world the discoveries of Dr. 11. Littlefield in biology, psy chology and metaphysics," it became known today that Lit tlefield, who maintains offices in the Central building, declare* he has found the process of creating life artificially. I Jr. l.ittleficld has made Seattle his home for two years. Me has been experimenting in the creation of life since he obtained his degree from the Kansas Homeopathic medical college in IRKO In his experiments, he says, he has created a minute, but new, in*cct, which, multiplied in 'i/e 1,200 times under the microscope appears as an octopus like organisnr. Life—what is it? What makes it? What is its origin? What is its source? The scientists of all j>eriods have tried to find the answer —Huxley, Tyndall, Haeckel, Darwin and the rest. Now l.ittleficld says he has solved the problem. He knows the mystery of life Darwin that life can only be generated from antecedent life. That is, only the living produce living things —vegetable or animal. But Dr. l.ittleficld upsets this theory. His discovciies are that life can result from the grouping of inorganic mat ter, inanimate objects, lifeless substances So far his experi ments have reached only the very beginning of the pos-ibili ties he is hoping for. Dr Littlefield's opinion is shared by the Archebiosis so ciety, just incorporated here. Archebiosis is derived from two Greek words meaning the "origin and the method of " SOCIETY TO CARRY NEW TEACHINGS TO THE UNIVERSITIES. This society, according to the articles of incorporation filed wilh the county auditor, is for the purpose of fosteiing "an educational movement to place before the world the dis coveries of Dr 11 Littlefield in biology, psychology and meta physics. consisting of the origin of life, the nature of the life principle, and the law of specie-, organs and functions, and to apply the basic principles of these, together with allied sciences, to the physical, intellectual and moral improvement |of the individual and the race." The society is to provide Dr. l.ittleficld an opportunity to devote himself wholly to continuing his scientific studies. The incorporators are A. Sargent, G. H. Kuhns and J. H l,a Hue The society is to establish hospitals and dis : pensaries, print books, conduct lectures, endow chairs at uni | versities, and otherwise disseminate Dr. Littlefield's teach ings. And it will provide a laboratory for him to carry on , his experiments. "Twelve elements enter into the composition of all or ' gani'cd beings, without exception," said Dr. Littlefield to day. " These are the phosphates of sodium, lime. pota?h, 1 magnesia, iron; the sulphates of sodium, j>otash, lime;, the chlorides of sodium and potash; and silicon and calcium. "Get the proper proportion of each, and voti can con struct the form of anything. By the various groupings, modi fication of relation and proportion, every species of plant and animal is formed," But even with the form constructed, there would still be needed that spark which makes life. The life principle, as Dr. Littlefield calls it. must be supplied. TELLS SECRET OF PRODUCING LIFE SPARK IN ORGANIC MATTER. The phenomena of creating life i« reduced, according to Dr. Littlefield, to the proposition of saturating the substance so constructed with the "'vital magnetism." This magnetism permeates every form of matter, says Dr. Littlefield. He proves it in this manner. "Put a drop of water on a microscope and any substance in it that will float and not dissolve will be found to take on the fttienomena of magnetization—that is, of attraction and repulsion among its particles during the process of evapora tion. By repeating this process a number of times with tho same particles of matter, they will become completely satur ated with magnetic force. "This process of evaporation is nature's method of satur ating matter with vital magnetism." It was while conducting similar experiments that Dr. Littlefield discovered he had created his new six armed insect. As the object gyrated with comparatively high velocity, Dr Littlefield was confident he had created a living thing. In a similar manner. Dr. Littlefield found he could produce out of inorganic matter, the beginning of growth of lillies, and other living celK both in the animal and floral life "CARRIED OUT TO ITS ULTIMATE." SAYS DR. LITTLEFIELD. "SCIENCE WILL BE ABLE TO CREATE EVEN HUMAN LIFE."
