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

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
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
