THE CHIROPRACTOR
Chiropractic treatment of a var
iety of human ills is enjoying
marked growth of popularity, am
is evidently getting satisfactory rc
suits, judging form the number o
folks hereabouts who loudly sinr
its praises.
Jackson people, therefore, will bt
iinterested to learn that Dr. B. J
Palmer, founder of one of the grea'
chiropractic schools, is coming her,
to deliver a lecture tonight.
Recently ye writer learned a
whole lot about chiropractic withir
§ period of ten minutes. Being one
! of tii' -e "dd bird who is willing
to try anything once he invaded the
! office of a local chiropractor and
asked to be given the whole works
| He got it.
First the chiropra.tor flattens you
! out on a table, hits you with a
maul, and asks you to let him know
when it hurts.
This is kept up until the operator
drops from exhaustion, and the
! treatment for that day is over.
Of course, you think you are
; loud, but you are not. Within a few
minutes after you get your clothe,
j on you begin to feel better, and
within an hour you aie confident ol
1 yi ur ability to whip a carload o!
! wildcats.
There are certain rules however
that you must follow while the chiro
praetor is giving you this treat
ment. You must not combat the
operator, but place yourself com
pletely in his hands.
Y’ou must not enter a protest
when he get- tired in the hands and
begins using his feet.
When he gets you black and blue
you are in the pink of condition.
\Tcu must not protest if he hang,
you on a line, commences beating
you across the back, ar.d tell, yoi
that you are a rug.
When you first go in, do no
shake hands with the operator. Jus
bow, because when you go out yoi
won’t be able to.
If you aren't broke when you gi
■ n, you will be in everal places be
fore he gets through with you.
Take your seconds with you t
carry you to your corner after yoi
have been counted out.
After he is through with you, h
picks you up from the slab am
hurls you into a swimming tank. 1
you are able to swim, he puts yot
back on the slab for further treat
ment.
acck popping is one ol tile lav
oi-ite pastimes of the chiropractor
It scares you, of course, when hi
puts one foot on your clavicle am
omnience.s to pull and stretch you
vertebrae. However, this is one o
the most valuable forms of treat
meat. Some day a judge may sen
tence you to be hanged, and it i
well to get accustomed to havinp
your neck popped.
If you get run over by an aut'
truck, hurry to the chiropractor a
yuickly a- possible, (.ike cures like
\ftei one reatment you can hunt 1
" ‘‘he tiuck driver, and gi\e him 1
m 1 tigY.
This, of course, may sound a bit ]
alarming, but it isn't as Pad as it
eems. After the first treatment
your fear vanishes, which goes to
prove that mankind may get used
to anything.
Dr. Palmer’s description of chiro
practic during his lecture tonight
will probably not confirm our ver
sion. For this reason, we are going
to hear the case presented for the
defense.—Jackson Dailey News.

TOO MANY LAWS
One of the strangest political ten
dencies of our time is the suddenly
Increased faith of legislators in the
power of laws to enforce themselves
once they are reauced to writing
No belief has been so continuously
and thoroughly discredited, yet none
is so alarmingly alive. Every poli
tical philosopher from Montaigne’:
day to this hour has recognized
that the best government is that
conducted with the least law ami
machinery.
A mulitude of evils attend the
naive faith of legislatures in tin
autoenforcement capacity of law a
represented by words on a piece
of paper. One is an inevitable weak
ciiing of respect for a government
born of a disregard for its more
outlandish aspects. Another is tht
uninterrupted encroachment of gov
eminent on the governed. A thin’
and most distressing evil is the ap
palling expense attending the crea
tion of multitudinous new bureaus
and offices provided for.
The time may come when a cand
date pledging himself to nothin'
but the repeal of two laws for every
one created will be generally sup
ported.
o
EVEN GOOD BURE A Cl! ATS ARE
NOT NEIGHBORS
Millions of dollars, a tiny fraction
of our huge tax totals, spent foi
betterment work are really spent in
the effort to buy a substitute foi
: neighborliness. The work itself is
| '.food. It must be done, and more of
j it. But we must keep in our mind.-'
; the ideal of the real thing, foi
which officialism is only an ersatz
or “just as good.” In helping poor
people over rough places, in getting
young folks back off the wrong path
in spreading knowledge of how fS
work better and live better, ther*
i- plenty of room for study and
for experts. People are in thi
world to help one another as people
not as officeholder-. A highly train
ed snooper, bristling with technique
and questionnaires, is no real sub
stitute -for the 'friend 'who know
the fix you are in. Paying taxes t"
help others does not soften a man’,
heart or arm his grip on 'life or
make his soul grow. Being cut oft
from money is poverty, but beiny
cut off from people is hell on earth
The best thing the betters can do i;
to show us how to Work our age
of change even further toward tha
dream city of “brothers in brotherli
noss abiding.’’ Then we shall all be
ri.h in the wealth that thieves can
:rt steal, nor rust corrupt, nor time
destroy/
WHY NOT BANK ON YOUR
BANK
That hard-headed man who sit
next to the railing and nods coldly
it you, even though you have had
an account there for years, is not ;
!'i h-blooded money changer. He’s
friend, ready to do you service i
(•u will let him. The next time you
tart to invest a few dollars in some
;:.udy proposition, stop and ask him
71 'll likely shake his head and sa;
oil are making a mistake. You’ll
he sure he is rut-minded, and g.
ye ur way, determined to get more
lhan his measly 4 per cent. But if
you’d let him, that same clammy
yuy would suggest some good se
.-unities which would pay you 6 pei
•ent or better, and probably make
he purchase gratis. We print the
he.’ause the United States Depart
cent of Justice says that $100,000
nor day, right along, are lost by
ucker investors.
