Our little hoy, two and a half years old, and girl, ten years old, had had cases of whooping cough, medical doe-tor said, and nothing could he done, for it had to run its . course, so we took our children to the chiropractors at Austin, and they were relieved after first adjustment, and in six adjust ments (treatments) were entirely well and improved in health. Four of our family moved to Austin to he under the care of Drs. Kinney. All of us obtained relief, my sister of chronic appendicitis and dizziness, and ourself of rheumatism and stomach trouble.
