M. &M. store St AMERICA'S BEST KNOWN JOUR-) NALIST ON OSTEOPATHY. Mr. Arthur Brisbane, editor-in-chief of the Hearst newspapers, one of the strongest factors in journalism and known to be the highest paid newspa per man in the world, receiving a sal ary of $72,000 a year, is a clear thinker on all topics of public importance. His editorial utterances are widely quoted, In the September 9th issue of his syn dicate of newspapers reaching to both sides of the continent Mr. Brisbane printed this as his leading editorial: Osteopathy Is Thoroughly Scientific Osteopathy is a science, and a science of ths greatest importance. It cannot entirely replace medicine: it does not pretend to do so. It cannot, of course, replace or do away with surgery, and it does not pretend to do so. But osteopathy cures, has cured and will cure many diseases: it will save many lives. Osteopathy in many esses makes sur- gery and medicine unnecessary. There is nothing of the puack or the transceddental faith healer about the able osteopath. When he understands his profession, which implies that he understands thoroughly human anatomy, blood dis tribution and the distribution of the nervous force, the osteopath is scientific man, valuable to the human race. Osteopathy, briefly, cure3 disease by sending a fnll supply of blood to the parts of the body that are diseased by freeing nerves from pressure, due to defective structure of the skeleton, by stimulating through manipulation the activity of certain organs, notably of the liver and the spleen. Many of the greatest living doctors of the old school recognize the great value of osteopathy, and all of the old chool doctors, as they become modern and open-minded, will call osteopathy to their aid. just as the intelligent os teopath does not hesitate to call in the surgeon or the man skilled in materia medica. We are not recommending our read ers to resort to osteopathy in place of a trusted family physician. The selec tion of a good osteopath is more im portant and difficult than the selection of a good physician. For a bad osteo path may do much more harm than an incompetent doctor of the old school. We simply demand justice for the os teopaths, with full opportunity to de velop .their wonderful and useful science. VV e trust that thev will fiht to the highest court for what they be lieve to be their rights. Osteopathic Health. Wills In Ancisnt Greece.
