Lumber is Down
YES, LUMBER IS DOWN DOWN TO WHERE A FAR
MER can afford to huild anything that can be made of
lumber, even in the face of a low market on farm pro
ducts. LUMBER WAS THE LAST GREAT COMMODITY TO
GO UP and the first to come down. Today lumber prices
are down to where it is hard to see how they can go any
lower when costs are considered.
YOU FARMERS HAVE REASON TO BE DISAPPOINT
ED IN the returns from last year's crops, but with lumber
selling on the present basis we don't believe you can af
ford not to do whatever building or repairing may be
necessary before Spring work commences.
WHETHER IT'S A BARN, OR A SHED OR JUST SOME
boards for fixing up around the place, the facts about
lumber will appeal to any man or woman who believes in
thrift and knows values.
COME IN AND TALK OVER YOUR PARTICULAR
PROBLEMS. We want to be helpful, and welcome an op
portunity to show you.

The Case of Miriam Rubin of Waukegan, Illinois, Which
Baffled the Medical Scientists.
You read about it in the papers. Day after day you saw the dispatches of the piti
ful condition of Miram Rubin of Waukegan.Ill., suffering from a strange talking mal
ady. And, you wondered how long this 8 year-old tot could live, what caused her to
talk for more than two hundred and twelve consecutive hours, prohibited solid nour
ishment for nine days and raised her temperature to a point which implied impending
Yes, you pondered over her condition as did all the medical physicians and consult
ing specialists whose services were tendered to rescue little Miriam. Every form of
sedative had been administered without improvement, no more could they do. Then
finally Dr. Paul Bergcr, a Chiropractor of Waukegan, pleaded for the opportunity to
save the child and gained consent of the parents.
But a few moments and Dr. Berger found tho second and fifth vertebrae in the
child's vertebral column out of position and adjusted them. In a short time the child's
temperature dropped four degrees and she lapsed into the first slumber she had had
for a week.
After a few Chiropractic adjusting.1 her temperature returned to normal, her per
iods of slumber increased, her chattering ended and solid nourishment was adminis
tered. She Has Completely Recovered And as Healthy and Happy as
However, just as this child's maladjusted vertebrae pinched the nerves which con
trol the organ of speech, caused her wakefulness and high fever, so you, may be suf
fering from some ailment due to a slight interference with the regular performance of
the nerves which radiate from the vertebral column.
Diseases which baffle the medical science appear as ordinary under the skillful Chi
ropractor's' hands. Ailments which are commonly doctored with drugs or by surgery
are overcome on the Chiropractor's table, where neither chemical nor knife are
