YOU ARE JUST AS

Even back as far as Ccasar's tlmo
this saying was used. In later years,

as old as ho fools". Taking tho two,
and combining tho meaning, wo havo

Interpretation "A man's Just as old
as his Splno allows him to fool."
Tho spinal column Is tho main con
duit through which tho ncrvo cables
pass from tho brain, and from which
tho tiny feeders nro distributed to
every portion of tho body. If through
abnormal curvature tho bones of tho
spinal column obstruct tho freo flow
of tho health-giving currents from tho
brain to tho bodily organs, disease re
sults In tho organs so affected. Tho
Chiropractor adjusts tho cause of tho
trouble romovos tho prcssuro on tho
norves without tho uso of Drugs or
Knlfo. This allows Naturo to build
up tho diseased organs or tissues. If
