Are Chiropractic Adjustments tho same a^s Osteopath Treatments?
No. The Chiropractic and the Osteopath both aim to put in place
that which is out of plac 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 ten times more direct
in the adjustments and the results getting healiL ton times more thor-
ough in one tenth of the time than an Osteopath would.

In July, 1883, I began to break out "with
Eczema on my head, legs and arms, and
began treatment with local doctors, but
did not get much relief. They said the dis
ease had become chronic. I then quit them
and tried various ointments and soaps for
another two years, but as soon as cold
weather came I was as bad off asever, so I
finally decided to let medicine alone, and
for twelve or thirteen years did nothing
towards curing the Eczema, except bath
ing. Thi3 seemed to do about as much
good as anything I had tried.
During the time I lost about one-half of
my hair. I began S. S. S. doubtful of a
cure, because the disease had run so long,
but soon discovered your medicine was
doing me good, and continued to take it.
I used seven bottles, when I was com
pletely cured, not having a single spot on
my body, which before was almost com
pletely covered. F. C. NORFOLK.

The head, feet and hands are usually
the parts affected, though the disease ap
pears on other parts of the body. While ex
ternal applications allay the itching and
burning temporarily, it is the acids thrown
off by the blood that cause the irritation
and eruptions upon the skin. The acids
must be neutralized and the system cleans

cure is permanent.

LONG SIEGE NEAR END
JAPANESE ENTERING UPON FINAL
OPERATIONS FOR CAPTURE
OF PORT ARTHUR.
OCCUPY ALL OUTLYING DEFENSES
CONFIDENT OF IMMEDIATE VIC-
TORY WHEN NEXT GENERAL
WAR DISPATCHES SUMMARIZED.
The fall of Port Arthur seems im
minent. The detailed reports of the
operations against the positions indi
cate that the prolonged attack is near
ing its end and that the Japanese are
now entering upon the last stage of
the memorable siege.
For the first time the Associated
Press correspondent with General
Nogi's army has been permitted to
send dispatches direct from Poit Ar
thur and these show that practically
all the outlying defenses are in the
hands of the Japanese, who are san
guine of immediate victory.
The armies of Oyama and Kuropat
kin still confront each other along tho
Shakhe river, inactive except lor sicL
mishes and artillery exchanges.
FORT ARTHUR IS DOCTr,rp
JAPS IN POSITION -TO ENTER
MAIN FORTS WHENEVER
THEY SO DESIRE.
Chefoo, Nov. 4.Port Arthur is
doomed. The correspondent of the
Associated Press here has received in
formation, the reliability of which is
beyond question, that the Japanese
now occupy positions which place the
east side of the town at their merqy.
The last assault has gained lor them
positions which insure their ability to
enter the main eabt foits whenevei
they are ready.
The Japanese calculate that ii the
Russians do not surrft^uer now they
will be capable of pvoJ^-rinj* the fight
ing by making their final stand at
Liaoti promontory and Tigers Tail for
a month longer, with the ineie hope
of continuing the struggle. Long be
fore the second Pacinc squadion ai
rives in the Pacific the Japanese flag
will wave over the wrecked citadel.
This will end Viceroy Alexieffs
dream of an unconquerable city.
The Japanese have not occupied the
main forts and highest points of trie
east hills, but they occupy in ovei
whelming numbers positions which
will enable them to drive the Russians
back wnenever they desire.
When the Japanese occupy the east
port riugc they will completely domi
nate the other Russian torts with their
Japanese arriving from Dalny re
port that the Japanese have captured
Itihlung mountain and Sungshu moun
tain, which lies between the railroad
and Rihlung mountain. They also re
port that the Japanese have captured

READY FOR FINAL BLOW.
Press Dispatch From Correspondent
With Besieging Army.
Headquarters of the Third Japanese
Army in Front of Port Arthur, Nov. 2,
via Chefoo, Nov. 4 (Censored).The
Japanese are now in a position to com
mence the beginning of the end of op
erations to capture the eastern forti
fied ridges. Their siege park has been
completed by the placing of 11-inch
howitzers. During the night of Oct.
29 all the reserves advanced through a
network of trenches in front of the
eastern fortified ridges from south of
Keekwan to west of Keekwan and to
the west of Rihlung mountain, called
by the Japanese Shochosan.
The bombardment began at dawn
Oct. 30 and infantry attacks were
planned to go against Rihlung moun
tain, an entrenched hill between the
coast of Banjusan and the east of
Keekwan, and on three Keekwan forts.
There is tremendous excitement among
the tioops, who are convinced ot suc
cess and mean to capture the fortified
ridges and compel the surrender of
Poit Arthur at once.
When the Japanese drove the Rus
sians from their strong position on the
last range of hills in front of the for
tress by a surprise attack July 30 the
Russians letired to the forts, but they
also strongly held previously prepared
advance lines to prevent the Japanese
from closing in upon the fortified
ridges. This line of torts was fourteen
miles long, forming a semi-circle from
the east coast to four miles from the
west coast and circling five miles
northwest of Port Arthur.
