DISEASES OF' CHILDREN AND TIIEIR
EFFECTS IN AFTER LIFE
It is rare indeed to find a child whose verte
bral column is perfectly normal. The cons
tant activity of children, running, jumping and
tumbling, the postures in which they sit in
school and a hundred other causes too numer
ous to mention tend to produce subluxations
of the vertebrae and impigue the nerves leading
to important organs of the body. This being
true, and it has been repeatedly proven not
only by palpation but in the dissecting room
ttnd by means of the X-Ray, the after- effects
of childhood diseases can be accounted for as
Nerves which are impinged , or pinched, at
the place where they leave the spinal coluiuu
cannot carry au adequate supply of energy to
the organs to which they lead, resulting in
these organs becoming weakened and suscept
ible to disease ; or, if the impingment be severe,
there may be immediate failure of the organ to
The child contracts tonsilitis, for instance,
through a subluxation of certain vertebrae.
The tonsils become enlarged and ulcerated;
toxins, or poisons, are absorbed iuto the blood
stream, are carried to all parts of the body and
act upon those organs which have become weak
ened. The tonsilitis is soon "cured'' because the
disease runs its course ordinarily in a few days,
but the subluxation causing it has not been
removed. The tonsils remain weak and liable
to a second or third infection.
To depend upon nature is entirely too uncer
tain ; to correct the spinal fault Chiropracti
cally is by far the better course, since there is
then no doubt as to the results.
I feel it is the duty of every Chiropractor to
explain to parents the serious consequences
which may result from some apparently unim
portant sick spell their children have had, so
they may have the youngsters' spines examined
and all subluxations corrected.
Children who receive spinal adjustments
during their sickness are extremely fortunate,
since not only is the cause of their trouble per
manently removed, but subluxations which
would have caused much suffering later are
also corrected. While Chiropractic spinal
adjustniente are highly effective iu relieviug
complications after they have arisen, still it
is much better to correct the subluxations as
soon as possible, even though no disease has
manifested itself, for if there has been sickuess
there is apt to be trouble at some later time,
and an ounce t prevention is worth a pound

Dr. Hoag favored our school with a
visit Monday morning. Instead of tho
customary talk that visitors usually
give, he entertained us by giving us
an examination. The lucre mention
of the word "examination" gives the
normal school boy and girl a sort of
sinking feeling, but If all exams could
be modeled after the one Dr. Hoag
gave us, the name would soon lose its
unpleasant Interpretation among the

graduate of last year, Henry Wede

If this is so we want to know who the
poor girl is so we can console her,
Henry is a fine chap brave, honest
and pious, but we have all agreed that
he is entirely too young and frivolous
yet to even think of such a serious
thing as matrimony.

lunches are being served to the school

On Wednesday, October 27th, the
teachers at the school cottage gave a
party In honor of one of their number,
It being her birthday. The occasion
coming so near Hallowe'en, the rooms
were very prettily decorated to that
effect. The games played were in
keeping with the rest of the scheme
and there wasn't a dull moment dur
ing the whole evening. Delicious
refreshments were served, and the
birthday cake cut, -and what with
pumpkins, black cats, and ghosts,
when the guests took their departure
they felt as though they had spent a
real old fashioned evening.
