Are Chiropractic Adjustments the same LS 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 in 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. ^#lf~

Lack of Snow.
The almost entire failure of
snow thus late in the season is
causing considerable anxiety and
some loss. The logger, particu
larly the small logger, depends
upon a good fall of snow to get
his logs to the dumping grounds,
while in this country, good sled
ding means that the farmer will
bring large quantities of wood to
market. Thus the lack of snow
is immediately felt by all classes.
Even a light fall of snow would
wonderfully stimulate business.
It is the small logger, however,
that suffers the most severely.
He cannot well bear the expense
of iced roads and depends almost
entirely upon snow to get his
logs to their destination. Even
the work of the big logging
camps is much facilitated by an
occasional light fall of snow,
keeping the roads clean and
A good fall of snow would put
more dollars into the pockets of
Northern Minnesota than any
other single thing just now.
As shown by the figures pre
sented by the Pioneer, the bur
den of local taxation is a heayy
one and because of the newness
of Beltrami county it must be a
heavy one for some years to
come. Beltrami county is devel
oping rapidly, new school houses
are needed, town halls must be
built, good roads are imperative,
ditches must be dug. All these
things were done by our fathers
and our grandfathers in older
settled counties but here we
must do them ourselves, and
while it is no more than right
that a portion of the burden
should be borne by our posterity,
it is nevertheless a fact that the
greater part ot the cost of these
pressing improvements must be
raised by immediate taxation.
It is therefor gratifying to know
that the valuation of the county
is rapidly increasing, and that
while there is need for large
sums to make the needed im
provements we are daily growing
more and more able to pay these

Let us see, wasn't this matter of

of the things which made R. C.

Timber settlements may be des

from the actions thus far decided
in the courts, it is only through
a settlement that the state can

fchat the members of the delega

Thomas Lowry, if the proper
time can be made to come.
THE appointment of Professor
W. M. Hays of the Minnesota
agricultural school as assistant
secretary of agriculture is natur
ally gratifying to the people of
Minnesota. Mr. Hays, himself,
deserves the appointment by
reason of the work that he has
done, and Minnesota likewise de
serves the honor by reason of
her contributions to the science
of agriculture. The Minnesota
experimental station has been
one of the most useful and help
ful in the country and it is meet
