South Side police are searching for

Mexican, who was killed with an ax.
Gonzales' hacked body was found in
a rooming house at 5039 Suth Twen

Cortez was a roomer at the place

29 years old, five feet seven inches
in height, and weighs about 135
pounds. His face is pock-marked
and he has a scar on the left side ot

CHIROPRACTIC FOR THE
The liver is the largest gland in the
human body. It occupies the upper
portion of the abdomen on the right
side, just beneath the lower ribs.
The function of the liver is to man
ufacture the bile which is then passed
downward through the bile duct in
the bowel. The liver contains an
amount of blood equivalent to one
fourth of all this fluid to be found in
the body and the amount is always
increased during digestion.
Some diseases of the liver are in
flammation of the liver (chronic),
hypertrophy (enlargement), atrophy
(wasting), jaundice, gall stones, in
active or torpid liver.
Chronic Inflammation I known aa elrr
hosla ot tha liver, when It beoomea engorged
with blood, tha organ iwella and the cells
are io oompreaaed until they are unable to
form the bile.
Hypertrophy of the liver, or enlargement,
la uaually the roault of an obatructlon of
the bile duct. The organ becomes ao much
enlarged aa to crowd upon the other vis
cera and na wetgnt increaaca anywnere
from four to eight or ten pounds.
Atrophy of the liver la a condition exactly
the opposite of hypertrophy. It is a wast
ing or shrinking of the organ below Its
natural size. It is a condition from which
the liver never recovers unaided. In such
cuat'S tt la of vital Importance that Chiro
practic adjustments should not be neglect
ed under any circumstances. One of the
most conspicuous symptoms of this trouble
Is chloasma or liver snots. These are yel
lowish or .brownish yellow spots that may
appear on tha skin In various parts of the
Jaundice Is not strictly a disease In Itself.
It Is really the consequence of other dis
eases. In chronic cases It may last a year.
In ordinary cases perhaps orie week, and It
Is frequently the result of bilious attack?.
Lymg just beneath the liver Is a small sac
known as the gall bladder. This sao empties
by a short tube into the gall duct which
leads from the Uver to the bowel. When the
liver Is manufacturing more' bile than the
system needs, the excess flows off Into the
gall bladder where It Is stored until nature
demands It In certain diseases, such as
jaundice, catarrh olthe bile duct or In
testines, enlargement of the liver, the bile
cannot escape freely from the gall bladder.
As a result it bcomss thick, forming hard
ened masses or lumps called gall stones.
Torpid liver Is a lasy liver. When you over
work yourself your body grows weary and
needs rest When the liver Is overworked
It becomes exhausted, but It doea not always
Imply an organic disease of the gland.
Failure on the part of the Uver to do Ita
work properly allows the poisons to pass
Into the general circulation which will eauae
functional disease elsewhere In the body.
The central nervous system is the first
to be affected. Tha brain becomes clouded
and the patient takes on that form of ap
pearance commonly known as sluggishness.
Krom the oadle to the grave, from birth
to death, the fear of possible results from
disease Is ever with us. and mankind Is
continually being treated for aliments, w
all know that our bodies contain all the
organs, vessels, tissues, chemical elements
for Its maintenance In perfect health, and
disease, therefore. Is a condition due to
the effect of nerve pressure.
The Influence of the nerves upon the liver
has been demonstrated that it Is supplied
with nerve energy from the central nervous
system. Many of them are vaeo-motor in
function: that Is. they control the caliber
and tension of the blood vessels, others pass
directly to cells and control the secretion
of the bile. The nerve aupply of the liver
