Ar Chiropractic Adjustments the same LS Osteopath. Treatments?
No. The Chiropractic and the Osteopath both aim to put in place j
that which is out of place, to right that which is wrong but the Path- 1
ology Diagnosis, Prognosis and Movements are entirelv different.
One of my patients, Mr. W. A. Casler, has taken both Chiropractic
and Osteopoth treatments. The Chiropractic is ten times more direct 3
in the adjustments and the results getting health ten times more thor- i
ough in one tenth of the time than an Osteopath would.

State Educational Associa-
tion.
The teachers of Minnesota hold
their annual meeting in St. Paul
beginning today and continuing
three days.
During the past few years
these meetings have gained in
importance and the state teach
er's association has gained in in
fluence. The men who have
guided the association during re
cent years have had high ideals
and have reached out in an en
deavor to make the association a
power in the creation and deve)
opment of thought and legisla
tion concerning education. They
have been in a considerable de
gree successful and the state as
sociation has become something
more than a gathering where
pedagogical papers are read. It
has become a place to which the
better teachers of the state
gather to crystallize the thought
and experience of a year into
practical helps for the future. It
has become an agency for put
ting the schools of Minnesota on
a constantly higher footing.
The meeting, while purely a
meeting of teachers, is worthy of
the attention of the people of
Minnesota for it will mark an
other mile stone in the educati
onal progress of Minnesota, and
what is done and said by the
teachers at St. Paul this week,
may perhaps help us all in the
bringing up of our children.
The Meat of It.
At this distance, three hun
dred miles from the storm cen
ter of the senatorial light, it is a
little difficult to get a true pros
pective of the situation.
The country districts have but
two sources of information con
cerning the situationthe Twin
City dailies and the reports
brought back by the few of us
who go to spy out the situation.
It is entirely evident that the
Twin City papers have an end to
serve in this matter of the elec
tion of a successor to Senator
Clapp and the safest way to be
lieve what they say is to believe
that it means just the opposite of
what they say. The reports that
are brought back to us by those
of us who have had the temerity
to venture near the storm center
are to the effect that a desperate
effort is being made to unseat
Senator Clapp for some Henne
pin county man. In other words
the only opposition there is to
the junior senator arises from
the fact that Minneapolis wants
the Senatorship herself.
If it were not for this fact
there would not be a man in
Minnesota to raise a voice against
Senator Clapp.
GOVERNOR VAN SANT un
doubtedly has many friends who
would like to see him in, the
senate, but it must be perfectly
evident to everyone that he is
being used by the Minneapolis
men simply as a stalking horse,
Minneapolis is glad to get Van
Sant into the field, not because it
cares for Van Santit would
fight him more bitterly than it
does Clapp if it thought he had a
chance of successbut because
with Van Sant it hopes to rob
Clapp of some little strength.
Minneapolis is using eyery
means to start a big field of can
didates. Governor Van Sant is'
its one lone success thus far.""

Little Chapters From Life I
How Paddy Shot the Bear.
This is a story of a newspaper
man who went to probe a mys
tery and shot a bear.
The mystery was far from
steel rails and locomotives tend
ers and other things that help
one on in the world and God who
fashions newspaper men never
intended that Paddy's good bones
should rust beneath the twisted
steel of an automobile. So Paddy
hired a horse and went by the
way of stumps and chuck holes
and ill combed corduroy. It is
said that a newspaper man can't be
straight but God pity the man
who is as crooked as that road.
Paddy was no match for it at all,
at all. The crookedness of it was
enough to warp the character of
the best of men and although
Paddy had a reputation as a
prince of good fellows it present
ed a sadly frazzled front long be
fore he reached the end of his
journey. The road turned on
itself eyery ten feet and grew
more wildly hostile with every
turn. Every buggy's length
either found the axle perched
on the top of a jack pine stump
or a wheel wallowing in the un
plumbed depths of a chuck hole.
On either side the forest primeval
set upon that road and squeezed
it and harried it hither and
thither, pinched ik to less than
wheel way width, stood it on end,
slammed it violently back upon
itself, threw great* trees across it
and hung a tangled mass of
thicket over it in a desperate en
deavor to put it past all human
finding out.
Even a newspaper man has
nerves and Paddy's grew big
with excerise, which helps to
explain how he shot the bear.
When the road finally let Paddy
go he found that there was no
mystery after all. This was hard
on Paddy and the English lan
guage I have tried to tell
you something of what Paddy
suffered but no tongue can tell
how the English language suffer
ed that day. But the mystery
that was not was far from game
wardens and close to the haunts
of big game. Borrowing a rifle
and a guide Paddy set forth to
makethelawand the wild thingsof
the wood suffer for what he had
undergone. The woods were
thick and gloomy, and Paddy's
eyes not being woodsmen's eyes
did not see well. Through the
thicket he beheld something
crouching on the slender lower
limb of a young sapling. The
trials of the road and the dimness
of the wood and the tenderness
of Paddys feet had its effect at
the other end of him. The dark
form took, sudden shape in
Paddy's mind. Raising bis rifle,
he cried,
"My God, it's a bear!"
And before the guide could
prevent him, Paddy filled the
bear full of leaden holes and a
poor little porcupine rolled to the
ground.
How Paddy got home and what
happened when they heard of it
in town is another story.
