Courtenay Assembly No. 3, is to be congratulated on having
brought the convention to the Comox Valley this year, for it was
the first Provincial wide meeting of its kind ever held in this section of the Island. It was also the most successful convention
of the Native Sons of Canada, from a social as well as from a
business standpoint.
Much discussion took place on very many important questions
among them being immigration, industrial development and eduea
tion, the debates being conducted along very broad lines.     On
Wednesday the election of officers was held, the result bing: Past

Promptly at 4.00 p.m., before a large crowd and under a sweltering sun, Referee Adams called the teams together for a short
caution against foul plaj and immediately afterwards the ball was
kicked off with Cumberland playing with their backs to the sun.
Monohan made a faulty elearai.ee and before Blair realized tho
game was on he was tested with a hot one which he cleared in a
spectacular manner.        Inside of ten minutes the visitors forced

When lu a weakened condition
there Is no limit tn the attention the
patient expects.
Every visitor whose dear friend or
relative Is thcro has much the same
Idea. The visitor especially should
remember the others.
People seldom visit a hospital except when they have a relotlve or
friend there. At that time their
mind Is too much occupied with the
condition of their friend lo receive
any other Impressions.
To get the proper perspective on
hosptlal work you should visit it at
other times when the mind Is free to
observe what Is being done and how
it ls done. You should become acquainted with your hospital. A hos-
pin! should be regarded us u public
utility lining a definite public need
The difference In efficient and Inefficient performance Is the difference
between life and death.. Its -lolc
[unction at present Is restoration of
health.
It should be our chief Interest then
to see that our hospitals serve tho
community in the most efficient way.
One of the essentials of tlio ideal
hospital Is that their service should
be given to the public nt the lowest

ability to convince a well man or woman that they may some day require
the services of a hospital. The average person does not get the proper
viewpoint towards a hospital and its
functions and place in the community
life. If they did there would not be
any financial problems to solve and
tite hospitals would be equipped with
the latest and best appliances for the
treatment of accident and disease.
It can scarcely he questioned that
the public in general do not seek the
hospital from choice, they are skeptical regarding the outcome and lack
adequate assurance of relief from Its
ministrations. It seldom receives the
respect It Is entitled to. If all goes
well nothing Is Bald, It disaster results one more accusation Is levelled
against the hospital.
Thc hospital does not advertise sufficiently, lt should be one ot its
functions to creote the greatest Interest possible in the minds of the general public.
No institution has greater significance to the community than the hospital when once a right understanding
Is established between the two.
The hospital should seize every opportunity to create a sense of responsibility in the public mind which will
lead to construcUve criticism, and to
active support of the hospital as an
economic asset to the community.
To my mind the development of the
hospital will gradually merge from
the curative to the preventative stage.
As Emerson said "The first wealth
is health."
The hospital will eventually be a
community health center where the
main function will be, not the curing
of disease, but the seat of Information
and instruction for the prevention of
disease, where preventive and corrective activities will supercede the
curative.
I would urge upon you the necessity of knowing your hospital and
what it Is doing for the community.
Your conception of It will undergo a
radical change and from a state of
antagonism or Indifference, you will
grasp the relation ot the institution to
your community and the power that It
can make for health. When you once
get Uie proper prospective of this
great work we will be able to count
you among tho many workers for belter hospital service.
Whether the hospital bo viewed as
a technical or humanitarian institution, the hospital system must be recognized as one of the best fruits ot our
j Christian civilization, a practical eon-
: tribulion of grace and good will to tho
| amelioration of suffering and tbe bet-
i terment of life.

/•* Equali3ed Freight Rates *m Bigger PtojRolls
r\N June twentieth—Election Day—the Dominion
^ Government, the Railway Corporations, and the Big
Interests of Eastern Canada must be shown by the support
that we accord the Honorable John Oliver that we are
determined to grow and expand. Every vote for a Liberal
Candidate is a vote for John Oliver, which is in eftect an
official message to Ottawa and the East that we in British
Columbia are solidly behind the Oliver fight for conditions
which are fundamental to the prosperity of every man,
woman and child in this province.
Let us show them by our votes that
British Columbia is in earnest; that we are
determined to win this fight for equalized
freight rates—equal charge for equal service
throughout Canada; that we must have free
and unrestricted use of the Panama Canal;
that by natural heritage and moral right
we are entitled to representation on national
directorates; in short, that we demand the
right of this Province to develop and grow.
John Oliver, with his great, homely common-sense and dogged fighting qualities,
supported by his Liberal Government, has
carried this fight to the interests which are
retarding our growth and prosperity.
John Oliver and his Government made
the first real fight for equalized freight rates;
equal consideration in the expenditure of
public monies for harbor improvement, with
the resulting grain elevators, docks, etc., for
British Columbia.
John Oliver and his Government are
fighting for these fundamentals of prosperity
which will ensure for us factory pay-rolls;
a market for our agricultural products; the
development of our natural resources; all
of which will benefit every person in this
Province.
John Oliver, the head of the Liberal
Government in British Columbia, has the
ear of the Honorable Mackenzie King, the
head of the Liberal Government at Ottawa;
and if the people of British Columbia
demonstrate by their votes that they are in
accord with John Oliver's fight, we in
British Columbia will benefit to a far
greater extent than we would if Mr. Bowser of General McRae were placed in
power.
Disregard petty issues, disregard personal
sentiment, and for the welfare of this Province and its economic development, and
for your own best interests, return John
Oliver and his Government to Victoria on
June twentieth.

Your Family
A mother and children bereft of home is life's moat
pitiful drama.
It is enacted all too often because life insurance
had not been provided.
Government statistics show that "ninety-five per
cent of men at age sixty are dependent" Other men
die without leaving anything for the support of their
families.
Life insurance has been evolved so that a man may
arrange his life's program to provide for his family.
It is scientilie, safe and sound.
Have your wife and children sufficient life insurance protection?
Let the Dominion Life take care of your dependents.

Manual Training and
Domestic Science
(Contri
So o ten today do we hear tlio crit-1
icism of our   schools—thnt   modern I
educal ion   is  noi   sufficiently   practi-
cable, thai our schools do not (It our j
children  for the work  which  lies all
baud when they leave the class-room-:.
Apd perhaps those who ure strongest j
in their condemmities of our present!
course of instruction would be much
' taken back of wc should proceed to }
lay   the   blame   ou   them   and   them;
, alone. :
'    Those in charge of educational affairs several years   ago   endeavored
to remedy this defect and introduced .
into   the  school  curriculum,   Manual
Training and Domestic Science.      As j
these subjects entailed some slight ex- j
pense— in    so   much    as   additional
room for classes engaged in this work \
must be provided, special desks, tools
etc., and qualified teachers to instruct :
— they were not forced upon the rate-1
payers but left optional to the people j
of each district to introduce into their
schools if they so desired.
The apathy of trustees nnd likewise parents in including these subjects in the school course in smaller
towns is greatly to be wondered at.
All over Canada today in the cities
and in most t,f the consolidated
schools, too, training along these
lines is afforded, True the initial
cost of establishing same might be a
little heavy, but with Cumberland's
present financial standing, this could
not be said to be burdensome. Aud
once the two rooms were fitted for
Manual Training and Domestic Selene, with the exception of two extra
teachers' salaries, the cost would be
hardly worth discussing-certainly In
no comparison with the good thai
would accrue to the children capable
of taking advantage of these courses
Some will raise the objection that il
children spend half a dny oach week
pursuing these subjects will not their
academic work suffer? From personal experience I can say "Far from
it." In numberless schools where
these courses have been introduced

children's progress anil lhe percentage of pupils meriting promotion in
tbeir ordinary scbool studies has In
no case shown retrogression.
Very often, too, children who have
been looked down upon by their follow sludents because of their low
standing in the claas-rooni have
found themselves leading their more
talented companions in hand work
and for thc sake of advantages in this
line we find boys and girls remaining
at school who otherwise would he
forced out to work through dlstate ror
class room routine.
y itntal Training demands of the
hoy neatnes and exactitude. lie
soon perceives that the slightest carelessness here cannot be overlooked,
for his model is spoiled and he must
begin anew. This «Mas a marked effect on character development also,
for It is a recognized'fact that exaei-
itude in the small things of life has a
marked influence on character building.
Tbe good results of Domestic Science are more, directly felt in the
home, for the child on being shown In
the class room the proper way of performing household tasks and especially the preparation of food is most
anxious to attempt this on a large
scale In the home. Very often, too,
Ihe mother who ls overburdened with
household tasks has not the patience
nor the time to spend In teaching lhe
girl lhc best way of doing housework
but Is very much relieved when her
girl knowing just how to go about it,
offers her aid. Children get the idea
from presentation In the class room
that cooking and household tusks are
not drudgery, but rather accomplishments of which they should be
proud.
Cumberland should he able to sup
port within llsclr the course withoui
depending on any outside school. The
three hour or morning periods could
he devoted to High School nnd Kn-
ti-iitice Classes and afternoon session
to pupils of (Srades 7, (i nndli. This
would Btretoh the work over six years
and lhe' hoy or girl graduating from
our High School would certainly be
proficient In Manual Training and
Household  Science respectively.
Eventually   judging   from   present i
trend of thought this will be one of I
the compulsory subjects In our school
course.      Why then  for lhc sake of
unnecessary economy have your hoys
and girls of school age today go out j
from our place of learning robbed of
advantages which are enjoyed by their
kind in the city and in most of the
consolidated   schools   In   other  parts
of B, C„ as well as all over North
America ?
Wages War, Foot
And Mouth Disease
With the racing season just two
weeks away, unusual activity is being
shown by government officials to prevent any possible entry of racehorses whicli have been in contact
with foot and mouth disease areas in
California. Hon. E. I). Barrow hns
received the backing of the entire
agricultural industry in his fight to
keep the plague out of British Columbia and nothing will be overlooked to protect animals in this province.
Political Meetings
Largely Attended
Newspaper opinions hero are unanimous that Nomination day last week
brought out a class of candidates
much above the nverage in Intelligence and business training, and it Is
conceded that the electorate of
British Columbia should have little
difficulty In sending men to the Legislature who will be in a position to
frame legislation that will give an Immediate Impetus tn general development In the province.
Practically every meeting, no inn"-
ter by whom called, has been well attended -an evidence of the Interest
displayed hy the public In the approaching election. Enthusiasm is
not lacking at Provincial and Conservative gatherings, but the outstanding fetaurc of a short campaign
so far Is the very apparent endorsa-
lioli given the Oliver administration.
The Premier admits his faults, "if
you have a better mnn for the Job
iiend blm along," Is his admonition.
"Our government ls far from perfect,
but 1 unhesitatingly contend tbat It
is lhe best Hie province has ever had
and after lhe government again receives the endorsntlon of the electors
It will be In n far better position than
ever to proceed with a policy of administration that call only result in
one thing, the rapid growth of population and Industry."
Secures New Gas
Masks For Miners
An Important step lu the prevention
of accidents In conl mines has been
taken by Hon William Sloan, minister of mines. The department has
secured a big supply of the most up
lo-date gas musks for use by coal
miners, and nlllclnls claim that In the
even! of disastrous explosions in the
mines there should be little If any loss

Freight Rates Out-
Standing Problem
Without doubt the outsandlng issue
in the present, election campaign is
freight rates. Opposition nnd Provincial candidates are taking keen
delight In robbing Premier Oliver of
the credit for the reductions already
gained, but a sure Indication of his
success is found In the voluntary service given him by prominent men
from (lie prairie provinces. Many of
these have come to British Columbia
to boost for John Oliver .the man
credited with having started and beeu
successful in a movement which wlll
mean more to Western Canada than

TIME KILLING
Is there such a thing as time to
kill? Time—the very thing of which
life itself consists—and who, indeed
has an hour to slaughter? In the
market where ability is bought and
sold, today's "dead ones" are but yesterday's crop from the battle of Fool's
Hill. Then. In the heyday of their
youth, these valiant warriors had time
to kill. And today their own drudging minds and bodies wear u bleeding wound for every blow they struck
Killing time, Indeed!
Reader, every hour on the face of
the clock Is but n mile post nearer
the days of your dependency.—the
days of your old age. Now, In this
period of your fullest strength, what
are you doing with all the hours between actual labor and rest? Are
you, too, killing time? How much of
each day do you put in on the bellows end of a cigarette? What portion between sunset and bedtime do
you devote in zealous patriotism to
the red, white and blue—chips? How
many billiard dents do you put into
the cushion while hastening the time
when you yourself will be up against
it for keeps? How much sole-leather
ilo you wear out scraping the concrete In rhythm with the garrulous
gossip of Spearmint Lizzie? How
much gasoline do you consume just
going nowhere and coming back? Oh,
yes, of course!—one must have amusement and recreation. They are essential. Deliver us from the poor
stick that does not know what fun is.
Yes, there is a reasonable time for cigars, refreshment, games, visiting,
and all that. Hut your system Is not
equipped for kissing the nicotine
twenty-four hours a day; your pay
envelope does not grow catnip enough
for you to spend all your evenings
feeding the kitty; you arc too much
of a fumbler to down the poolroom
bunch; you are a complete fizzle as a
human tank, and moonshine is the
rankest poison; and as a flirt—well,
you know.    Stop killing time.

THE SUBSTITUTE MOTHER
We recently read of the tragic death
of a primary teacher who died as the
result of the shock of seeing one of
her little pupils run over by an automobile, Just after school had been dismissed.     Thc   teacher   was   in   no
sense to blame, and she could not reproach herself for thc accident, hut
consciousness of deep responslbllii,
Ib the life habit of the teacher, and her
sympathy is always enlisted in behalf
of her pupils when there is need of it.
The sad death of this teacher will er-
rest the attention of thousands who
never think of the mothering of pupils whicli .is one of the commonest
and linest phases of a school teacher's work.
Ill brief, the teacher is the school
room substitute for the mother, and
In uncounted cases her affections arc
drawn out by her pupils and enlisted
lu their behalf With almost n mother's
intensity of feeling. She works for
thc boys and girls she loves, as well
an for others who do not so stir her
heart, and because of this abounding
affection she strives doubly hard to do
her best and most for the children
who are ln her charge six hours every
school day. If the world could realize fully the wealth of devotion and
tenderness which Is lavished dally upon little children by these substitute
mothers of the school room, thc debt
which civilization and humanity owe
teachers would be better understood.
It Is service which Cannot be paid for
In dollars and cents, and it is all the
finer aud more valuable because It is
a free offering of womanhood to the
little ones who have ever been woman's especial care and charge
scarred old world have ever faced.
' Check up the early graves filled by
j the young people from the homes of
the rich and you will be surprised.
This is not the wail of a pessimist;
1 It Is rather a note of warning from an
j observer   who   would   call   upon   the
Louth  of today to meet a condition
that will try tlielr strength and wis-
I dom.

Comox Electoral District
Paul Phillipps Harrison
BARRISTF.R-AT-LAW
Cumberland, B.C.
Independent - Liberal
Candidate
Election of the Year A.D., 1924
To
the Electors of
Comox Electoral District
greeting:
This pamphlet is issued under authority of thu
several District Committees composed of local citizens,
many of whom belong to different political parties, but
are now unanimous in their desire to ensure the election of Mr. Paul Phillipps Harrison, of Cumberland,
B.C., Barrister-at-law, the Independent-Liberal Candidate.
The word "Independent" indicates absolute freedom from the rule of the Rubber-stamp Brigade.
The word "Liberal" refers to no particular party,
•nit denotes the principle of re-modelling and enacting
laws to meet promptly the radical changes which from
lime to time occur in the economic and social status of
organized society as opposed to the ultra-conservative
or reactionary principle of remaining stationary and
only enacting legislation to meet such radical changes
at the last moment when forced to do so by political
pressure exerted by organized labor, or for some other
like reason.
To those who reside in the more remote parts of
the district and who are not personally acquainted
with our Candidate, we may say that he was born in
Victoria, B.C., some 43 years ago, and is the eldest son
of His Honor Judge Harrison, now retired, who for
some 35 years occupied the Bench for two Counties on
the Mainland, and in later years for the County of
Nanaimo. Mr. P. P. Harrison nas resided with his
i'amily at Cumberland, B.C., and practised law there,
for the past 18 years.
We are supporting him in his candidature for the
following reasons:
1. During the past 18 years we have on many
occasions experienced convincing proof of his broad-
minded attitude in politics, combined witn a most commendable independence of spirit, and the ability to
make a determined fight for anything that he is advocating or supporting.
2. That he has always been strongly opposed to
Oriental immigration into Canada.
3. That his entire legal practice is with the general public, such as miners, farmers, fishers, loggers,
merchants, etc., and he does not serve any interest or
class in. particular, we therefo/e are assured that if
he represents us in Parliament he will not be prejudiced in favor of any particular interest or class.
4. That as his entire legal business depends upon
his retaining the people's confidence, it is to his interest
to give them proper representation in Parliament.
5. That he has not accepted and will not accept
funds for his campaign from any Party, Association,
or the like, in short, he is financing the whole of his
campaign with his personal funds. We doubt if any
other Candidate in this Field is doing this.
6. We are entirely in accord with Mr. Harrison's
running as an Independent-Liberal and in his view that
if he were to do otherwise he would put himself in the
position of practically saying that he is satisfied that
the Government has accorded our District the consideration to which it is entitled, while as a matter of
fact we feel that they have, in many instances, failed
to do so. It is our experience, covering a period nf
many years, that Political Parties, become nothing better than 'Political Machines' whereby its members who
are elected on a straight party ticket, uphold their
Party even when they are acting contrary to the interests of the people, thus constituting the infamous
'Rubber-stamp Brigade,' every member of which is
completely subservient to the dictates of the Party
Bosses, particularly as such members are individually
under obligation to their Party, tor funds to carry on
their campaign. This condition of affairs can only be
remedied or at least ameliorated by our persisting in
placing the interests of the District before that of any
Party as we are doing in this case.
Mr. Harrison will refrain from making wild promises for the purpose of catching votes.
He has agreed with us to make a most careful investigation into the complaints of Timber Operator*
regai'iKng the present Royalty on logs; And also the
question of an embargo on the exportation of logs,
and if the facts fully warrant it, he will advocate and
support any equitable measure which can be adopted to
meet the situation in a way satisfactory to all concerned. And a like enquiry into the matter of the
present system of repairing and maintaining public
roads, ditches and culverts, in order to ascertain if a
reasonable scheme can be worked out whereby tho
farmers can obtain a fair share of employment in that
connection, particularly during the slack months in
farming operations and thus enable them to meet their
taxes.
Also amendment to the Poll-tax Act, so that the
collection of such tax will not be made from any person
liable to pay the same, until such person haa resided a
reasonable time within the place where it is sought
to collect the tax.
Also the filling of local Government positions by
local people, where competent, instead of the present
method quite often adopted of giving the same to persons who reside elsewhere and have no stake or interest in the District.
Mr. Harrison is also strongly in favor of the principle of Recall by the people of any Member of Parliament whom they may feel is not giving them proper
and adequate representation and will give his support
to any legislation of that character, which contains

Thomas Meighan's new Paramount
picture, "The Confidence .Man." which
wlll be shown on Friday aiid Saturday ai tho llo-Ilo Theatre, is a crook
romance with a brand new angle and
bristling wilh punches—and not unlike "The Miracle Man."
Melghan chose It from over out
hundred nnd fifty stories that he considered. It was written by Laurie
York Ersklne and Robert H. Davis
and ran as u serial in Argosy All-
Story Weekly. So did "The Miracle
Man." Victor lleerniau directed, and
the supporting cast is AA-1.
In the story, the strongest .Melghan
has had in months, the slur has the
role of Dan Cowan, the greatest of
all confidence men. He Is the mns-
ter-mllld type of crook rather than the
plug-ugly kind. Corvan hooks lhe
old sucker, Qucrrltt, falls lu love with
:i young country girl, (Virginia Valll)
plays philanthropist Io get "ill right"
with the town-folk, collects from
Querltt und prepares to skip town.
But the roul action starts when Cor-
vnn Is exposed for the crook he Is.
Laurence Wheat and Charles Do*
Clark have prominent supporting
roles In the cast.       Others    Include
'Men Llndroth, Jimmy Lapslcy, Mar

Yutonlo Moreno and Walter Helm are

of their respective roles they accoiu-1

its way toward a gasoline supply
truck, throwing himself full length
upon the flames with a soaked mattress, saving hundreds of lives of ex-
curslonists who are trapped by the
conflagration. These end other thrills

UU'hen at Christmas time we turn into a toy «tnre or in a lnrge de-

pinds' eye only the toy nnd the child. Some of us see and feel, ourselves. And in spirit go back to 'he days when toys were to us, as
they are to children, the embodiment of thc Imagination. The tangible
form of our dreams! Sight of the toys, the touch of them, is a magic
wand restoring our lost childhood. Anil so we renllv end in buying
the thing that we like, the thing that takes our fancy! That is, if we
have a choice, and are not forced hy circumstances of limited stock or
limited means tc take what we can get.
But the toy reaches further bad. than this. Behind each is the toy-
maker. The man or woman whose deft fingers shope the thing of art
and life out of unpromising and wholly unsuggestivo row material.
Thus Canada has men, art-craftsmen, who see in the forest-log latent
figures of saints, windmills, wpather-vnnes. miniature canoes, 'trends
of Mother Hubbard.
Take the part-French, part-Indian, maket of the toy-canoe that so
delights the hearts of little boys even when for lock of lake, river or
sea in their neighborhood they arc forced to sail it in the bath-tub, or
juat carry it to bed clasped in chubby arms, at night, as a sort of galleon whereon to sail away to the land of dreams, is there not in the
canoe, a spirit of race? The French trait of "sculpteur," as the wood-
carver calls himself down in Quebec, and the elemental knowledge and
association of thc canoe thot in the Indian reaches back to prehistoric
days in this great stretch of countrj that is Canada.
It would be difficult to say which side of him aids the other more,
_* it.l8t'rue tl>at m combination, he is something more of an artist
than the United States or Mexico to the South, without such combination,
can boast. A born toy-maker Someone who gets into the toy that prescient something which is of thc spirit and of life, and which makes it
art-products rather than a mere thing of wood. So fine in its lines
that it is no mere substitute but a miniature of the larger canoe ... the
boat of a race. No less than the Viking ship or the gondnla*!s the boat
of a race and a people.
Did we see the artistry and human interest, not to speak of the
nationality, the true Canadianism in such toys, we would select them
and put them more in the hands of children than we do. Even in
giving the purely mechanical toy to the child the youngster not having
arrived at the age of mechanics proceeds to see the suggestion, the
romance, the story, the association. As to wit the "chu-chu" train
rather than the mechanism, the parts, which arc far ton small tn interest'
Uie mind at that stage.
And when you happen upon the canoe-carver at work out-of-doors In
one of those many quaint and historic villages along the St. Lawrence
between Montreal and Quebec, his own child seated on the logs, one of
the rough canoes in his little hand, how envious it makes vou feel for
the city child! For thc toymaker and his carving is a plmil of village
growth. The big log still, as it were, touches the forest. And all these
things, too, are in the tiny canoe over which the mind of childhooil
drsams.—Victoria Hayward.

Thirty Years ot Dunlop
Experience Certainly Tells in Making Tires
You cannot go astray in your tire purchases
if you buy this kind of experience:—
1894-1924
Many a man is driving
a motor today who w;is
not born when Dunlip
Tires first appeared on
the highways of Canada.
Thirty years is a long
time in the Tire business.
It is the very beginning
of the industry. 18H8
saw the world's first
pneumatic tire; 1894 saw
the industry taking hold
in Canada.
Doesn't it stand to reason, in view of the above
facts, that we must be
better equipped and better qualified to serve tho
exacting demands of Tiro
users?
Knowing the past of the
Tire Industry so well, we
must have pretty good
intuition regarding not
only the needs nf the
present, but the possibilities of the future.

APPLICATION TO
C H1ROPRACTI C
Science recognizes that vibration is the ruling factor of the
Universe. Intellectual vibration is a term we can apply to the
working of God's forces along definite and practical lines as immaterial forces acting in and through material objects producing
what we see as life. The revolving planets are good examples attesting the truth that motion is a result of intellectual vibration.
If true then we must give our source the credit for using it in all
things. The harmony we realize existing there is a result of the
uninterrupted connection and transmission of forces between
source and product. This is the Philosophical basis for Chiro-
pratic. Mental Impulses delivered from the brain is but intelligent vibration being directed to certain parts to start in motion
and keep normal these parts for which it is meant. We now find
it necessary at all times to have a standard quality (100 per cent)
of vibration (mental impulses) to be transmitted from the brain
to the tissue cells of each and every part of the body to have as a
result, 100 per cent of expression and efficiency or complete life or
health. Any change from this normal will result in a lack or
excess of structure or function making according to degree the
various conditions known as disease.
The above cut shows four spinal segments. The second
from above is slightly displaced, illustrating a diminished nerve because the opening between the second and
third vertebrae is partly closed.
Owing to the peculiar construction of the spinal column and
the adaption of the vertebrae to the many positions and exertion i
to which it is put, we find these segments become displaced slightly
thereby decreasing the size of the openings where the bone structure surrounds the nerves.
As the nerves are very soft in structure we can easily realize
that only a slight pressure will cause their capacity for work to
be seriously diminished. This is more easily understood when we
know that each nerve is composed of thousands of small fibers,
each a distinct wire, if you will. The bones being very hard and
at this point entirely surrounding the nerve by a movable opening.
A Chiropractor with his hands adjusts these slightly displaced
segments, or vertebra, with his bare hands to the natural position,
thereby relieving the pressure on the nerve, and nature does the
rest.

The ordinary way to measure distance is by miles.
You think any place you have in mind is so many
miles away. It seems a long way off. Look at it another
way. Measure the distance by minutes. Say to
yourself, "Such and such a place is so many minutes
away," meaning, of course, that if the telephone is
used distance does not need to be considered.
If you want to talk to a friend or discuss a business matter, no place is very far away, Not only that,
but the means of communication is always right at
hand. Every telephone is a long distance telephone.
Besides, if you talk in the evening, you can take advantage of the special rates.
