Dr. John Fair, head of Boston'a newest
cult, tho "New Life," Is -certain that . he
has discovered the secret of how to laugh
at old age, and how to exist pot . only for
100 but for 1,000 years without pain, evil,:
or sickness. He says 250,000 people have1
enlisted under his banner1. Here are"hls
rules for living to be 1,000 years old:'
"Always dress In white.. White Is the
prime -principle of life. I believe there
should be a universal taw making it a
crime for any peraon to go attired In black
or dark apparel. ,
"Do not think of death, do not believe
"LJve principally upon vegetables and
nuts. Adjure meat, milk, oil and flesh of
all kinds, as well as all stimulants.
"Sleep eight hours dully, exercise eight
hours and work eight hours.
"A man'a moat critical hour In the day
Is the thirty minutes before and after
meals. He should absolutely stop work a
half hour before each meal and must not
resume work until a half hour after each
"Each peraon should be alone for a half
hour each day, not necessarily to sleep,
but to get his mind In a condition of
ratural and perfect repose.
"Bleep with your bed room window open
every night all your lifetime. Always
have a draft In your room.
"A daily menu I would suggest would
be as follows:
"Breakfast Honey, toast, rarely coffee.
and at long Intervals an egg.
"Dinner A bowl of. soup made from
guts or celery or potatoea, preferably
nuta; an apple or an orange, with, for
variety, lettuce or radishes; brown bread
"Supper Apple pie, fruit.
"I offer -to every one who accepts my
faith not 100 or 200, but even 1.000 more
years ot life If It Is desired." Boston
