If the letter Johns wrote to the girl on Sunday after she had bem missing two days, and which was made public yesterday, lie mentioned a man named “Canney."

Tht police are investigating the report that the girl was to favor the otic a ho first swam across the widest jail cf the lake, a distance of about two and a half nii'es. Search is being made for a Hard roan who was said to he interested Miss Crispell, to learn if he can 'throw any light on the death of the fill. Fuends of the Cr'-pcll family are rot so jmre that die was murdered, KiiTuc in them advancing tlic I hear;.’ t! ;it she may have fallen into the lake accidentally.

POIMJTAIW CSfy -yoyTT* - — If you are apt to become over ! heated and uncomfortable in the j warm weather and would prefer to j keep cool, and especially If you would M'ko to live to be a hundred years j old. look for the Bulgarian bacteria. The Bulgarian bacteria are to be found only in buttermilk. That is to say. the bacteria we have in mind are only to be found in buttermilk, al though there may be other species of Bulgarian bacteria. Perhaps there are Bulgarian bacteria in Bulgarian tea and no doubt also in Bulgarian ties. But the bacteria that are native t<> the Bulgarian buttermilk are the | only bacteria to be considered here j and the only bacteria that will pro j long your life and bring you to a : nice ripe .old age. They will perhaps | offer you other oacterla and assure I you that they’re “just as good,” but j you must accept no other than the j Bulgarian. i Buttermilk is a very popular hot i weather beverage, it is very health ful. cools the blood and is rather pleasant to take. Then, too, it has bacteria In it. Professor Eli G. Alet i <-hnikoff. head of the Pasteur insti i tute at Paris, has discovered that the | bacteria in the Bulgarian buttermilk j prolong life and explains why there ] are so many centenarians in Bul < garia. One out of every ten per j sons in Bulgaria lives to be a hun | dred years old or more. Entirely i the work of the “bacillus Bulgar icue,’’ which is the technical phrase j for Bulgarian bacteria. The professor explains this in a way that any child can understand. | Old age is always the result of a i toxin that forms in the large intes tine, eventually ’hardening the arter ies and causing death. There are forms of life that have no large In testine. such ns turtles and hats, and these live on indefinitely and only meet their death through accident or violence. The Bulgarian bacteria are the only bacteria that can suc cessfully combat with the bacteria that form in the large intestine. One of the bacteria that live in the large intestine would rather walk around the block than meet a Bulgarian bacteria, they are that scared of them. Hy killing off or scaring away most of the bacteria in the large intestine the Bulgarian bac teria prolong the life of the owner or' the large intestine In which they happen to be working. Bacillus Bulgarleus arc now being imported to tiiis country in large swarms. Just the germs arc brought over and they arc hatched out when they reach here in bac teria incubators made expressly for the purpose. When hatched they are immediately put into large vats of buttermilk, as they are aquatic bacteria and would die if left in the open air. The Bulgarian bacteria are very much tike any other bac teria in general appearance and arc not, as Is popularly supposed, of many colors like Bulgarian tics. Buttermilk bids fair to vie with iced tea and beer for popularity tills summer and buttermilk drinkers each day become more numerous. There are those who don’t like its taste at first, but they should bear in mind its wonderful health-giving qualities and get acquainted with the Bulgarian bacteria.
