Cause of Lockjaw.
Lockjaw, or tetanus, is caused
by a bacillus or germ which ex
ists plentifully in street dirt. It
is inactive so long as exposed to
the air, but when carried beneath
the skin, as in the wounds caused
by percussion caps or by rusty
nails, and when the air Is ex
cluded the germ is roused to ac
tivity and produces the most vir
ulent poison known. These
germs may be destroyed and all
danger of lockjaw avoided by ap
plying Chamberlain's Pain Balm
freely as soon as the injury
is received. Pain Balm is an
antiseptic and causes cuts,
bruises and like injuries to heal
without maturation and in one
third the time required by the
usual treatment. Sold by Bar

A MATTER OF HEALTH
HAS NO SUBSTITUTE
One of the Direct Results of R. C.
Dunn's Work in Upbuilding
the Public School
During the administration of the
state auditor's office by R. C. Dunn,
the public school fund of the state
was increased largely through his ef
forts and business ability by over $4,-
800,000. When he assumed office in
January, 1895, the school fund amount
td to $10,500,000, and when he reined,
eight years later, the school fund had
increased by a few thousands less
than $16,000,000 Some of the items
going to make th.s 'ai 50 addition to
the school fund woie as follows:
Land saved from the Little Falls &
Dakota Ry. Co.'s swamp land grant
valued at $500,000. Enhanced prices
secured for the state timber, the in
crease amounting to $500,000 more
than the state had obtained for its
timber in thirty-one years previous
$170,000 collected from trespassers
on state timber lands, which was ten
times more than ever collected in
previous history of the state. In
creased prices secured at the sale of
agricultural lands by State Auditor
Dunn's taking advantage of the condi
tion of the market and the increased
demand for lands during the years
1898 to 1901, inclusive, by which not
less than half a million of dollars ad
ditional was secured for the school
fund on the sale of about 200,000 acres
of land during those years, and for
which the sale price was increased
not less than $2 per acre
The interest received from the in
vestment of the school fund is appor
tioned twice a year among the schools
of the state and the importance to the
taxpayer of such large additions to
the school fund as Mr. Dunn secured
may be measured by the fact that in
the apportionments funds made in
1903 $1,167,580 was distributed,
amounting to $5 per capita for every
child attending school in the state,
and in 1904 the total amount distrib
uted was $1,3?2,S20. A citizen who
is the happy parent of five children of
school age would be benefited to the
extent of $25 annually by this appor
tionment of the income of the school
funds, an amount, in many cases, equal
to the total tax paid by individual,
so that Mr. Dunn's good work in this
direction has been a direct benefit to
every taxpayer in the state.
In addition to this feature one of
Mr. Dunn's favorite plans for the in
vestment for the permanent school
fund was that it should be loaned in
part at home, and he strongly advo
cated a measure which was passed
by the legislature authorizing loans to
be made trom the public school fund
to school districts, counties, cities and
townships, the rate of interest being
fixed at 4 per cent. This plan has
proved of immense benefit to almost
every school district in the state, and
in 1903 the total loans made amount
ed to $499,028, and in 1904 to $595,-
576. By this means the school dis
tricts, townships, etc., are able to se
cure a loan from the state at a low
rate of interest or to refund their old
debts and borrow from the state,
while the school fund is invested at
home, among Minnesota people on the
most reliable securities.
A MAJORITY FROM THE START.
The statement has been made and
circulated that R. C. Dunn could not
have been nominated for governor by
the Republican state convention with
out the 113 delegates from Hennepin
county. This statement is not borne
out by the roll calls, ballots and rec
ords of the state convention.
The call for the convention provided
for 1,17 delegates, but at the time the
test vote was taken in the seating of
the Hennepin county delegation there
were actually 1,073 votes cast .exclu
sive of Hennepin's 113, which would
have raised the total to 1,186. The
roll call shows that Cass county (9)
and Roseau county (8) cast a double
vote, giving to these two counties a
single vote only, the total number of
votes on the test ballot would have
been 1,056, but the convention having
allowed them to vote double, the total
vote cast was 1,073.
Dunn's Clear Majority.
Of this 1,073 there were 622%. votes
cast for R. C. Dunn and 450 for L.
W. Collins, or, to state it accurately,
there were 622% votes in favor of
seating the Dunn delegates from Hen
nepin county and 450% cast in favor
of seating the Collins delegation. A
majority of the whole vote cast was
537, so that the Dunn forces would
have a clear majority of 86 votes with
out the 113 from Hennepin. With 1,-
176 delegates in the convention, 589
votes was a majority of the whole, so
that the Dunn forces had a majority of
33% votes of the total vote of the
whole convention without Hennepin
Rev. McLeod returned last
night from Mankato, where he
attended the annual Synod of the
Presbyterian church held in that
city this year. The meeting is
the same as a state convention
and Fergus Falls was selected as
as the meeting place next yearX*

Are Chiropractic Adjustments the same a.s Osteopath. Treatments?
No. The Chiropractic and the Osteopath both aim to put in place
that which is out of place, to right that which is wrong but the Path-
ology Diagnosis, Prognosis and Movements are entirely different.
One of my patients, Mr. W. A. Casler, has taken both Chiropractic
and Osteopoth treatments. The Chiropractic ia ten times more direct
in the adjustments and the results getting health ten times more thor-
ough in one tenth of the time than an Osteopath would.
