In the old days when a subject disputed any word of the I^lng, he lost his head. The fact today, is just as royal as a king. No one disputes facts unless he has in a manner of speaking, "lost his head." One fact that has stood for twenty-five years without successful dispute is the essential truth of chiropractic which , is (1) that disturbance of joints ot the backbone causes pressure upon nerves. (2) That this nerve pressure causes disease, and (3) That the chiropractic sphiaj adjustment restores the alignment of joints, removes ner\-e pressure, and with the cause gone, disease disappears. Chiropractic adjustments this month are being given with un-usal effectiveness in cases ot rheumatism, bronchitis, lumbago, asthma, tonsllitis, influenza, coughs, colds and head-iches.
