THE ABOLITION OF PILLS AND POTIONS.
Do you remember, you good men and women with graying
hairs, how the doctor used to dose you with strong medicines--doses
that were fearful to the taste and monstrous to the eyes ? When the
doctor was not quite sure of his diagnosis, remember how he used
to prepare a "bolus," a dose containing about every imaginable
drug, in the hope that something 'therein would be good for what
ailed you? The day of the "bolus" is gone forever, and the doe
tors, by experience, have learned that strong medicines in huge
doses is not the proper thing. ..
The human body is a machine the most complex machine ever
built. When in absolute repair there is no smoother running ma
chine when out of repair there is no machine that can cause more
trouble. When the insensate machine made of cogs and cams and
rods and pistons gets out of order, we do not content ourselves
with soaking it in oil; we proceed to adjust the displaced parts or
renew them. But for centuries we have been dosing the human
machine with strong medicines, overlooking the necessity of adjust
ing the misplaced parts. When the linotype machine stops the
operator does not grab an oil can and begin dosing the machine
with oil. No; he knows that some part is misplaced a slug too
tight, a "mat" caught on the distributor, or something like that
and he goes to the right spot, almost by instinct, and adjusts it
Then the machine moves on perfectly.
That is what Osteopathy does to the human machine, it adjusts
the displaced parts, removes abnormalities, and puts the human
machine back into perfect adjustment. And when perfectly adjusted
the human machine moves with a precision that hand-made machin
ery can never hope to equal. When Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, the
founder of the Osteopathic school, announced his discovery he was,
of course, derided. Men always are who discover something that
sets at naught the age-old superstitions of the world. Dr. Harvey's
announcement that the blood circulated was greeted with jeers.
Gallileo was brought before the inquisition and made to retract
his assertion that the earth revolves. And so it has been through
all the ages. But Dr. Still was more fortunate than most discover
ers, for he has lived to see the triumph of his conclusions. Scoffed
at and derided by his friends, he pursued the even tenor of his
way, studying and demonstrating. He knew that just . as a dis
placed part of a man-made machine might make its presence felt in
a far-removed part of the machine, just so something wrong with
the human mechanism might make itself felt in a remote part of
the body. Little by little he made headway, and soon rumors of
wonderful cures were started. This led to investigation, and with
investigation came conversion. Today Dr. Still's theories are ac
cepted all over the world, and the School of - Osteopathy is as
solidly founded as any of the old medical schools.
The Osteopath is an educated mechanic of the human body.
His duty is to find out what is the structural displacement causing
the machine to run wrong, and then correct it. Osteopaths depend
for remedial effects upon the integrity of nature, consequently be
lieves that the giving of drugs and medicines is unscientific and
The science of osteopathy primarily depends for its success
upon a most thorough and comprehensive study of the anatomy
and physiology of the human body, having for its object the main
tenance of complete circuit of the motor, sensory and sympathetic
nerves, to and from all the organs and tissues, and the restoration
of a harmonious action, which must ensue when all parts are unirri
tated by any cause, permitting a perfect freedom of all fluids, forces
and substances pertaining to life. '
The application of this knowledge to the healing art is where
the school of osteopathy differs from its predecessors. Osteopathy
retains the knowledge gained in the medical world, but believes
that the administration of drugs in a remedial sense is a mistake.
That, by a thorough understanding of the mechanism of the human
system,- on an anatomical, physiological and hygienic basis, disease
can be prevented or controlled, by the application of advanced
principles, peculiar to osteopathic practice.
The first step in osteopathic attainment is a most exhaustive
knowledge of the anatomical structures, and the physiological func
tions of the human body, in its widest sense. Then is observed the
fact that man is a complete beiiyj, capable of performing his own
mental and physical acts when in health. That disease is simply
disorder, and to restore health necessitates a correction of the dis
In the restoration of health the osteopath works entirely in
harmony with nature, correcting disorders of mind and body
purely upon a physical basis, through the application of his ad
vanced knowledge of the laws and principles of the human body,
and not as an entity to be attacked by some foreign force which
would only alleviate, antagonize or overshadow the real trouble.
The Osteopathic School is founded upon commonsense. It
teaches that every effect must have a cause, and when that effect
is evidenced by ill-health it searches for the cause, knowing that
the effect comes from some misplaced or abnormal condition of the
human mechanism, that most wonderful and complicated of all
Today there are Schools of Osteopathy all over the land. No
longer is Dr. Still's name greeted with derision; no longer do people
sneer at his theories. Osteopathy has conferred upon mankind too
many blessings to be longer a subject of scoff. It is today advancing
by leaps and bounds; every day sees it recruiting new advocates;
every day it is relieving human distress by methods at once rational
and free from superstition and nauseous drugs. It is attracting
world-wide attention, and its practitioners are among the most
highly respected members of every community.
A SOLUTION OF THE BEEF QUESTION.
General Manager Buckingham of the Union Stock Yards Co. of
South Omaha proposes a remedy for the present beef shortage. He
asserts that the present high price is due simply to the shortage in
supply, and further asserts that the shortage will continue until
something drastic is done. The high price has resulted in the mar
keting of everything in the shape of beef, and as a result there are
no cows left on the range or in the barn lots. Manager Buckingham
proposes a law forbidding the sale of cows under seven years of age.
No cows, no calves; no calves, no beef steers. That's the situation.
It is claimed that several South American countries have laws for
bidding the sale of cows. Whether Mr. Buckingham 's proposed solu
tion is the best or not, the fact still remains that something should
be done to further the cattle raising industry in this western coun
try. It is a problem that deserves the attention of our best thinkers.
