A Watcumaw roporter dropped into the
oateopathic aanitarlum of Dr. . E. Beeman
at 64 State gtreet the other day for a treat
ment. It wag bia llrat, and he, Hkethe pub
11c in general wbo bave not lnforined tbem
aelvea in regard to the sclence of oateop
athy, awalted hla turn with a curioua mix
ture of doubt and curloalty; but aa ho
glanced about tbe cozy apartmonta of tho
uoctor and obaerved aoveral others in wait
ing wbo were elthor reading or ploaaantly
ongaged in converaatlon, he became im
preaaed that this aanitarlum waa more like
an ldeal home than a doctor'a workahop.
Thedoctor, atter a little timo, made hla ap
pearance and greeted the roporter kindly.
Tho reporter told tbo doctor that ho waa a
doubtor of the aclenco aa ho never believed
in cure-alla. Tho doctor laughud and hla
reply domonatrated to hla visitor that ho
had been aitting in judgmeut upou a matter
about whlcb ho waa iguoraut. Tho doctor
Btated that tbe repoiler'a miataken idea in
regard to tho scienco of oatoopathy wbb a
most common ono with thone wbo had
takon no palna to inform themaelvea and
who knowing nothing about tho merita of
tbe Bcience were inoat prono. though ofton
honeatly, to condomn it and ita followors.
He aaiil that the outeopath does not claim
to be acure-all but that oatoopathy ia baaed
upon an accurate knowledge of the auatom
ical atructure and phyaiologlcal func
tioua of tho body organiam. Naturo lma
placod witbin the body certain vital forcoa,
vitallzed iluida, proceaaoa and activitlea

other, malntain tho normal equilibrlum ot
tbe body meoliaulam and any interference
with theao Iluida and forcea breaka the liar
monloua worklng of the buman machlno.

The increaae in the nractice of Dr. Bee

from hls treatmenta, for during the month

dolng, almost dally, doeds of charlty and
