Are Chiropractic Adjustments the same svs OsteopatK Treatments?
No. The Chiropractic and the Osteopath both aim to put in place
ji that which is out of place, to right that which is wrong but the Path- i
ology Diagnosis, Prognosis and Movements are entirely different. 1
i One of my patients, Mr. W. A. Casler, has taken both Chiropractic 1
and Osteopoth treatments. The Chiropractic io ten times more direct
in the adjustments and the results getting health ten times more thor- i

war college around the pedestal of the
statue. Immediately back of the sta
tue on the president's stand, which
was completely covered in red, white
and blue bunting and decorated with
American flags, sat the president and

Major General Gillespie and accepting
the custody of the statue from the
commissioners, formally presented the
gift, on behalf of the emperor, to the
American people, through their pres
ident, in a brief speech. After the

assemblage arose and with uncovered

band. Speeches followed by General
Chaffee and Ambassador Tower and
the ceremonies closed with benedic
tion by Rev. Paul A. Menzel, pastor
of Concordia Lutheran church.
BREAK IN WHEAT PRICES.
Market Shows the Effect of Various
Chicago, Nov. '21.Under heavy
liquidation wheat prices here broke
over 2 cents a bushel. The market
was affected by the comparatively
weak tone of foreign grain markets
and by reports from Argentina claim

decline was apparently started by lib
eral profit taking on the part of sev
eral large holders. On the break many
Stop loss orders were reported and the
result was additional weakness. The
market closed practically at the low
est point of the day. Final quotations
on December were down 2% cents, at

PLAGE FOR COCKRELL
MISSOURI SENATOR WILL HAVE
REFUSAL OF VACANCY ON
HELD IN HIGH ESTEEM BY PRESIDENT
LATTER WISHES TO RETAIN THE
RETIRING STATESMAN IN
Washington, Nov. 21.While no an
nouncement yet has been made re
garding the present's possible ac
tion in the selection of a man to suc
ceed Colonel Frank J. Hecker on the
Isthmian canal commission it is known
that he is considering seriously the
appointment of Senator Francis M.
Cockrell of Missouri to the vacancy.
It is intimated that _jnator L'jckrell
himself practically will have the de
termination of the matter. If his
iieajth will permit him to undertake
th^ arduous work of the commission
it is reasonably certain that he can
have the appointment. The president
holds Senator Cockrell in high es
teem, personally and officially, and
feels that the services of a man of his
character and ability should not be
lost to the government if the senator
should desire to continue in active
public work. If the senator should
conclude that he does not care to un
dertake the work of the canal com
mission it is certain that the presi
dent will give him some congenial
position befitting his character and
services. HEAVY GAINS IN MIDDLE WEST.
