Are Chiropractic Adjustments the same o.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 ie 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.

Under this caption the Duluth
News Tribune points a moral in
the matter of drainage which
should make every man in north
ern Minnesota the more zealous
for the cause of drainage. We
are glad to quote the editorial in
full:
Eight state ditches have been
completed in Minnesota this
year, several of which had been
commenced last year. The drain
age expenditure for two years
has been $50,000, the drainage
commission having gone to the
limit with available funds. The
ditches constructed have made
important links in the drainage
system of the Northwestern part
of the state and thousands of
acres of worthless lands have
been made ready for the plough.
Of these ditches the cheapest
one to be constructedcheapest
in the history of state ditching
lies a few miles north of Bemidji.
Here was a large tract of timber
less swamp known as the "Big
Meadows." Grass grew rank
thereon, but the presence of
standing water has heretofore
prevented the gathering of much
hay. Five thousand acres was
embraced in this soaked tract, of
which nearly two thousand acres
belonged to the state. This sum
mer a five-mile ditch was driven
through the "Big Meadows,'' at
a cost of $500 per mile.
For each acre reclaimed on the
"Big Meadows" fifty cents were
expended. The cost was small
so was the result but as a real
example of drainage benefit, the
"Big Meadow ditch" is great in
importance.
It affords a practical example
on a small scale of what should
be practiced on a large scale in
every swamp district of the
state.
Last year there was an un
profitable morass north of a
thriving town, a swamp of uncer
tain and speculative value.
This year there lies in its place
a well-drained meadow, offering
160-acre homes to thirty-one
families, and an expanded market
to the merchants of Bemidji and
those of the state.
Last year the state owned two
thousand acres of unsalable land.
This year the same land can be
readily sold at a price four times
greater than the total sum ex
pended in building the five mile
ditch.
This result, this transforma
tion, has been brought aoout by
the adoption of simple business
methods of the state land depart
ment. When the state gets be
yond common fractions in its
arithmetic lessons, iWill multi
ply thousands of dollars for
drainage work where it now adds
cents.
There are hundreds of "Big
Meadow"-problems for the state
to solve in St. Louis, Beltrami
and Itasca counties.

Little Chapters From Life
The Disputatious Preacher.
It takes competition to make
things go. A few years ago
there was but one lone church
member in all the thriving village
of Northland. But a Methodist
man came to town and organized
another church and the Congre
gationalists woke up right away
and got busy. Now they have
both got new churches and plenty
of members.
The pastor of the Congrega
tional church is a big man with a
small voice and a tremendous
love of fighting. He has a way
of keeping the people for an af
ter meeting and inviting them to
find fault with the sermon right
then and there or forever after
hold their peace. Some of the
flock are getting so they can put
up a very pretty fight to the pas
tor.
Once in a while a member is
found who wants to take the
pastor out on the railroad track
and have it out alonewith him but
the pastor is wary in the way
and the doctrines of life and
death and salvation are settled
right in the midst of the congre
gation.

But although the pastor is
always spoiling for a fight, he
knows when to run away. 1| He
frankly relates how on a former
charge where about eyery man
in the church was a separate
denomination unto himself he
once held an after meeting and
the discussion upon kittle points
of doctrine finally reached the
point where sisters jnatched
tongue against tongue and
brothers fist against fist. Our
-V jt^. &
preacher with his small voice
voice was not in it a little bit so
he mounted* the pulpit and sum
moning eyery breath in his body
he shouted:
"Beloved, I perceive that there
are more preachers here than
people and I am fain to ttelieve
that I really am not needed.
Permit me to cast myself into
the outer darkness." And he
went out into the night by the
back door.
But the after meetings in
Northland have not progressed
to this stage of development as
yet, and a visit to the church of a
Sunday evening is well worth
while. The preacher sits in the
middle of a wide platform with a
big stick with which he lays
down the law of time for choir
and congregation in regular
rythmatic thuds. On his left
hand is a quartette of bearded
men and on his right four boys,
barely more than babes. These
nine make the choir and their
singing is good to hear.
There were times in the early
days when people were wont to
inquire, "Can any good thing
come out of Northland?" That
time is long past/ Notice.
