Ar 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 iB 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.

tive Campbell of Kansas, the author

olution. He informed the president he

tigation. The Standard Oil company,
Mr. Campbell informed the president,
already was preparing its defease and
would resist to the utmost the gov
ernment's investigation. The re
sumption by the company of the pur
chase of Kansas oil, he said, undoubt
edly was decided upon in view of the
action taken by the house of represen
tatives in requesting an investigation.

found that nothing beyond the
wagon had been damaged. The
farmer explained that the horses
had become frightened and were
running away when the train

FEMALE MOOS E
MA BE KILLED
State Legislature to Decide
Wheter Present Law is
Fair to Hunters.
One female moose or caribou
may be lawfully killed by each
hunter during the big game sea
son according to an amendment
to the game laws introduced in
the house yesterday by repre
sentative I. W. Bouck of Royal
The bill amends the law by
striking out the word "male" in
the law, making it legal to shoot
one moose or caribou during the
open season regardless of sex.
Representative Bouch says
that hunters in the woods do not
stop to ascertain whether the
moose is a male or female when
they shoot, and frequently are
jmable'to tell whether or not the
animal has horns. If they find
they have killed a female moose
the carcass is either left in tohe
woods to decay or only a small
portion of it is carried away. The
law, he says, does not prevent
the killing of female moose, but
simply prohibits bring carcasses
out. Be believes since they are
killed anyway, the penalty should
be removed so that the carcass
may be used and the animal
counted as the one allowed killed
