A Newspaper Advertisement 1928

A newspaper advertisement about the world’s oldest man, Zaro Aga, in an American newspaper in 1928. It is believed that Zaro Aga lived 160 years. He was known a strong carrier. He was known as an extraordinarily strong load carrier:


KHIYAR The giant Kurd is the greatest burden bearers. Some carry loads as high as 700 lbs. The sightseer asking ‘Upon what food does he feed to get such strength?’ expects the answer to be ‘Raw Meat.’ But the real answer is Khiyar – meaning raw cucumbers… more than three pounds daily is his summer ration. Proving again that the big point in anything is not what you put into it – but what you get of it. That ‘s why we don’t talk about the ingredients of Morganite brushes. What does it matter whether they be curd, or carbon, or cucumbers as long as they’ll carry any loads and reduce your annual brush cost.”
