present administrations foreign policy and upon the operation of the Underwood tariff law li has been suggested to the colonel that by re maining silent lie is permitting the republicans to steal a march on the progressives by getting first into the field with their criticisms of the Wil son policy This suggestion had con siderable weight with Roosevelt and it is not improbable that before he

than in explaining that It was foreign to chiropractics Dr Palmer will deliver an address at Clear Lake tonight Dr Palmers Itwmiirks A portion of his Mason City speech follows Chiropractic is the science of ad justing the cause ot disease by re aligning the twentyfour movable vertebrae of the spine releasing pres sure on nerves radiating from the spine to ALL parts of the body al lowing nerves to carry their full quo ta of health current nerve By correcting the cause the effect is eliminated A perfect spine means health Let the vertebrae become displaced press on the nerves cut off the life current and there is certain to be disorders You will not find electrical or other mechanical apparatuses or de vices in the Chiropractors office There are those who counterfeit Chiropractic but the specific purs and unadulterated bonifide Chiro practor is he who has a complete knowledge of his work and all he uses is the plain reliable Chiropractic adjustment through the medium of the hands and a two piece plain table The competent Chiropractor does not need to be told what is ail ing you he can tell you by alalyz ing your spine Skepticism Natural It is human nature for people to be skeptical Since they were born people have been educated to be leve in the theory of medicine and anything new any radical departure from the old path calls forth this de gree of doubt and ridicule H was the same when Franklin tapped clouds for electricity when Harvey discovered the circulation of tho blood and other men made great dis coveries The same holds good with Palmer and Chiropractic Chiropractic has all but passed through the skeptical stage anci to day there is hardly a locality in the United States not to mention Can ada and other foreign countries 15 being represented at one The Palmer where the great work Is now being extolled You cannot get around facts regard less of how skeptical you are and if there is wrong with you we can convince you Chiropractic is the logical science for relief based on the natural law of cause and ef Conference T H Willie chairman of the Pro gressive state committee arrived in Mason City Sunday morning and aft er a conference with some of
