F. 17-tf Mechanical Lesions The osteopathic jphysician is peculiarly trained to find the mechanical defects in the human machine. The trouble which throws the whole body out of line and results in abnormal stress and strain may be found anywhere from the arches of the feet to the atlas (the bone upon which the head rests). Differences in leg length, for instance, will throw the spinal column into one or more abnormal side curves. Spinal curvature, sway back, "old man's stoop," forward protruding head, are all examples of bad .body mechanics and usually are accompanied by chronic arthritis. Osteopathic joint lesions, occuring at the pelvis or between the lower vertebrae of the ;j>inal column, may also be the causes of postural disturbances. In the presence of these lesions, it is almost impossible to keep a good posture no matter how hard the individual tries and no matter how much corrective exercising he does. The lesions must be fixed first and then muscles educated to ,hold the body in the correct attitude. Dr. M. J. Sluss 08TEOPATU1C PHYSICIAN BOXKLBLDG. UBKOX.

Then something happens to wake us up, like this letter from a Utah farmer: "We are living in a very interesting time. I have never seen so much unrest. Anything goes at this time just so a certain element can get something for nothing. We are ruled by a class that don't know a hoe from a shovel. All they know is the school room. As long back as I can remember, I have heard the old story that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. "I have visited eleven nations and was born in a foreign coun- ry. I do know this is the best :ountry in the world. Anyone who .will work and save can climb the ladder to success. "It will be 73 years next April that with my mother we sailed from Denmark for the U. S. We came from Omaha to Utah with an ox team. I walked all the way. With no education and as poor as anyone could be, I have made my way up the ladder to the $150,000 mark, but it has taken hard work and some foresight. I have never had a dollar given to me, but have given thousands away. It makes me iired to hear a lot of pinheads get together and plot against the man who has the nerve to get out and do things. "In my early manhood, 15 of us young men located on stream in Utah. All any of us had was our teams. I bought some of my neighbors out thru foresight. I worked hard. Today I own more land, more water, more horses, cattle and sheep than the 12 who are lef all combined. Under the plan of some I should divide up. No This is a good country for all who are on the square. "If I had the power, I could cure this evil that is so preval ent through the land. I would send all the discontented tc Europe, give them 50 dollars t start out on, and tell them 'Now oot, hog, or die.' Give them tiree years abroad. They wouL hen be willing to come bacl nd be good Indians." POUNDS These are fancy, yellow fruit, with green tips. I Grimes, Ben Davis sweet, juicy Ibs. Floridas tion since 1926.
