Supplement NECK BROKEN 38 YEARS Ami United states Senator Money Old Not Know It. Wn«hinKton. May 18. —The fact that Senator Money of Miiiittippi passed through life for thirty-five year-, with a dislocated neck, and did not know it. became known to tome •if l i. as-ociites today and created uenerM astonishment. The condition was discovered when the senator he gan to take osteopathic treatment for neuralgia. He has suffered intensely front that ailment for many years. At the first battle of Franklin, in \pril, 186.1. Money was a cavalryman in the confederate service. While rid ing through the streets he was struck l»y a hullet that circled around his ribs, doing no •other injury. The shock was such that Money was thrown from his horse and struck o.t his head, itring helpless he was cap tured ami taken within the federal lines lie did not ask for hospital treatment, was exchanged later, re joined his troop and fought until the war closed. Years passed and Money entered the senate. Neuralgia had taken a firm hold of him and his eyesight had itroun *0 bad as to approximate blindness. Senator Foraker advised Money to try osteopathy which was just beginning to attract much atten tion. Foraker'a daughter had been benefited by the treatment. Senator Money went to New York, accompanied by his son. and visited the osteopathist. Almost the doc tor** first remark was: “Why. senator, you have had your neck broken."* Senator Money denied all knowl edge of such an affliction. The phy sician declared that one of the ver tebrae had been entirely pushed from the top of the column supporting the head and was in a wrong position. He demons! ated that the muscles on one side of .he neck were flabby and useless. “If you nad bentt old enough to take part in the civil war," said the nhysieian. “I would say you were thrown from a horse and sustained the broken neck." “That is just exactly what did hap pen." replied Senator Money, recall ing the injury at Franklin “1 can cure your neck." said the physician: "it will require but a mo ment’s time." The osteopath laid the senator on a table, took hold of the misplaced vertebra with both hand* and snapped it into proper position. The noise made by the bone swinging into place was like the report of a pistol. The senator** son. who was looking out of the window, turned in alarm, saying: "Father, have yon broken your neck?" “No," replied the senator. "I have just had it set."
