AVhat would elther be worth wlthout acrnie une in charge who possessed an under

aro the blood gauges of the body.
... doctor wlio knows how can. apply dynamlc and static tests through thp

eyes ar.- the nervo gauges of tho body.
... have a,compIled table of nerve measurement called the Nourometer, which
enables us tc> measure the exact condltlon of tlie nervous system, nnd affords a
means pf calculatlng tho exact amount of drain on tho system caused by defectlvo

examinatir.n we can flgure almost exnetly a pereon's nge. If this sounda lncredlble,
