Men with strange missions are to be seen in London occasionaly. Surely one of the strangest, however, is Herr Josephh Salomonson, who has come to us from Lake Maggiore to persuade us to give up the use of all liquids, and further to abstain as if it were poison. He himself has not drunk of anything during two years and two months, and hope two attain a great age by preserving with that peculiar form of abstinence. At Ascona he has founded a colony of men and women disciples, who rigorously eschew salt and liquids, work in the fields in primitive garb, and, when the weather is suitable, sleep on the bare ground, from which they are supposed to extract natural magnetic currents. Herr Joseph Salomonson has already gained a number of adherents in London and on the Continent, including several wll known physicians and scientists. He claims the the mode of living advocated by himself and his followers is the only one that is natural and healthy, and that by its adoption a man or a woman may add considerably to the span of live. “There is not a sound man in the world.”
