Elixir of Youth Discovered in Tablets by Jewish Therapeutist


An operation for the purpose of removing the effects of old age, and the transplanting of the gland of a monkey or goat, will in the future be unnecessary. All that will be necessary will be to swallow a tablet containing a dessicated gland and the process of rejuvination will manifest itself.

This latest of medical discoveries is the work of a Chicago Jewish therapeutist, Max Schein, who explained it before the convention of the Physical Therapeutical Association, held here yesterday. The convention accepted these miraculous tablets as a result-producing “Elixer of Youth.”

It was stated by Schein that the tablets have already been used successfuly for the purpose of removing goiters, and that they have proven to be better than operation.
