YEAR-OLD MAN D. W. Starrett Declares He Has Discovered Ponce de <? Leon's Dream. Ry Cosmopolitan News Serrlre. OAKLAND, Cal., Oct. 10.? Concentrate on your bodily ills ?rtd live indefinitely. The foregoing, is, _in a nutshell, thj? doctrine of D.'w. Starrett, president of the Indefinite Physical Society, who, in company w(th more than seventy of his followers, has engaged a banquet room in the Palace Hotel, San Francisco, for September 15, 2000 A. D. Rejuvenated Body. Ptarrett today told Cosmopolitan Mews Service how he had completely rejuvenated his body in the last thirty years until today, at the age ?l? sixty-four, he has the appearance Of a man of 35. At the latter age, physicians told him that he would Bot live for more than six months. "My doctrine," Starrett said, "Is merely the combination of truths presented to the world by the late Prof William James, of Harvard University, and Dr. Alexis ran. II, of one Rockefeller Foundation. James placed a man on a delicately balanced contrivance and proved that the brain controls the flow of blood through the body. When the man concentrated his thoughts on his feet.the blood automatically flowed to them, upsetting the balance; when the man thought of nls brain the same held true and the blood flowed to his hrain. Cells Still Alive. "Carroll startled the world eight years ago by proving that body cells Will live outside of the body when properly nourished. Today, some Mils he has experimented wiLi are ?till alive and healthy, although artificaily fed for more than eight years. "My eyatem is merely a combination of the two?concentration on all the organs of the body each day, ?timulating a flow of healthv I.lumi to them, thus building up their resistance to disease and, If any is present, completely eliminating it." Mental concentration in the belief Of Starrett can be aided If another person supplements the concentration with the influence of his will. "I have disciples all over tbe world." Among them is Mrs. Katherine Howard Gould, of New York and NewiHiit. wno married the grandson of the railroad magnate. I am concentrating on her ailments now, and she has been much Iraproved, I am told." City Guide Book Ordered.

Extra "Rights" for Women Are Advocated by Fay King If Mere Man Can Have a Spare Pair of Pants the Ladies Are Entitled to Substitute Gloves. ^_ By FAT KINO. A lady haa written me a letter in m hi? h she makes what I con sitter a very good suggestion. Even her name indicate? that she has the "Wright" Idea. She thinks that some glove manufacturer ought to put on Ihe market a "pair" with TWO right-hand gloves. "I have about two dosen left gloves lying around that ar? as | good as new, but the right hand ones are shabby and I can't use (hem. Tailors make an extra pair of trousers to go with men's suits. Why not an extra right glove for business women!" Now I think there's some sense to that, and I hope some glove manufacturer will read this and start the works right off. I have the same trouble with Ihe right-hand glove of each pair I buy, too, only I don't hang on to it long enough to wear it shabby. I lose it. I can't see a thing with my glove on. and whenever I go to buy anything off comes the right glove so that I ran get a better luok, and if the bargain Is a good one I get so enthusiastic and run off with my purchase so overjoyed I forget all about the right glove I've taken off and leave it there on the counter. Then f have to get a new pair of gloves, and what I saved on the bargain goes again getting new gloves. I get around lhoui;h hy iimi.-'Iv buying two pairs of glove? just alike at the same time and then when I lose one I have the other left, but that doesn't work verv well either because it doesn't take me much lone er to lose two right gloves than it does to lose one. However, when I lose the second one I keep my right hand In my pocket and get some good out of the two left ones. I wear one left one and carry the other left one and nobody is wise to the fact they are both lefters. There is only one thing worse than losing one perfectly good, brand-new glove, arid that is FINDING just one brand-new, perfectly good glove. Especially if it don't match any odd one you have on "hand." 1 never snap my gloves together when I take them off. because I'd rather lose one than two. That's too much of a cinch for the finder, and I guess there's some truth in the maxim that you get what you give, because I never found a good pair snapped together, either. I have heard of folks who have, though, and maybe they deserved to because (hey lose a pair when they lose 'em. Anyway, I'm quite enthusiast!? about Miss Wright's suggestion, and I'll walk ten flights up to get two right-handers with one pair, and that's more than some guys will for an extra pair of trousers with a suit.
