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 is 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.

Conserving the R_ainfall.
The Pioneer Press by cartoon,
communication and editorial flays
the proposal of Cass Lake to
abolish the forest reserve and de
clares that unless steps are
taken to conserve the head
waters of the Mississippi the
commercial devel opment of the
valley of the Mississippi, of
which Minnesota is the head and
the most interested portion, will
be irretrievably handicapped.
Ic is a well known fact that
forests are the great conserva
tors of the rain fall. Cut down
the forests and the water, as it
falls from the heavens, rushes
swiftly to the rivers and on to
the sea in floods, while in dry
seasons the rivers run at a low
ebb. The Pioneer Press de
clares that the destruction of the
forests of Minnesota has already
lowered the level of the Missis
sippi and that were the forest
reserve policy abandoned, its
level would be so reduced that
the great world's trade which
the digging of the Panama Canal
will open up to us will be impos
sible. It goes further and as
serts that this commerce is pos
sible to us only by an application
of the forest reserve policy to far
larger districts than that em
braced in the Chippewa reserve.
The matter is one of the high
est importance and if Cass Lake
cannot refute the assertions of
the Pioneer Press it can hardly
hope to be freed from its embar
rassing circle of forest reserve.
Advance sheets of the report
of State Auditor Iverson to the
legislature are just out. Consid
erable space is devoted to the
discussion of the state finances
and to a tabulation of estimated
receipts and expenditures for the
ensuing three years. With the
amendment of the constitution
fixing the tax on the gross earn
ings of railroads at four per cent
intead of of at three as at pres
ent in force Mr. Iverson esti
mates that the state revenue tax
for 1906 and 1907 can be reduced
from one mill to one half of one
mill. In order to do this it will
be necessary for the legislature
this winter, in the words of Mr.
Iverson, to practice "rigid econ
omy" and no new fields for ap
propriations must be sought out.
The state auditor's warning is
timely. During the past two
years the revenue fund of the
state has been overdrawn over
three hnndred and sixty thous
and dollars and although there is
still about that much on hand it
will be necessary for the legisla
ture either to confine expenditure
strictly to the lines already laid
down or to increase the tax rate.
Should the railroads resist the
increase of one per cent in the
tax on their gross earnings it
will be necessary to maintain the
tax levy for revenue purposes at
one mill as at present.

That snore is growing weaker all

any more. Dad thinks he is all

can tell by his snore that he is

And the fair girl buried her
