"DRUGLESS MEDICINE" AND "BLOODLESS SURGERY" 1 DEAL FOR DEFUNCT LEXINGTON CREAMERY
BI A. I.
By Dr. J. Perry Conder.
(Continued from last week)
The drugless physician and bloodless surgeon, who is skilled
enough to understand the mechanics of the body, makes all need
ed adjustments, sets the parts back into their natural positions,
relations, and movements and thus helps the body to get well. As
soon as all the parts of the human organism are working again
properly health has returned. Health is but the sum of all indi
vidual actions of the body in natural and proper degree and re
lations. Disease is merely the subtraction of part of some of
these actions, or the adition of too much action through irritation.
In either event the working parts of the human machine are at
fault somewhere and faulty adjustment has crept in. Proper treat
ment is to correct the misfit restore the impaired co-operation of
the parts. This fundamental conception has brought a new view
science: the mechanical correction and adjustment of dis-order-ed,
that is to say, dis-eased body. It has evolved a new kind of
medicine for the body, simply the putting of its parts into good
running order when they have fallen into dis-order (dis-ease) so
that the body can operate naturally, healthfully again.
THE A-B-C'S OF MAN'S MYRIAD ILLS
Nerves control motion, sensation, temperature, absorption,
secretion, excretion and nutrition by which the latter term is
meant, technically that a body cell cannot utalize the food brought
to it by the blood unless it has unimpeded contact with its own
"tropic", or nutritional, fibers of cerebro-spinal nerves, which
ultimately center in the brain. Pressure upon a nerve fiber causes
it to act abnormally in proportion to the degree and duration of
that pressure, the extremes of altered function being over-activity
from mere irritation, as the initial ill, and complete paralysis, or
even atrophy of the structure, as the final and extreme morbid
WHY THE ORGANS "PLAY OUT'
It the "tropic" nerves to a tissue of organ are most concerned,
there will be a quick weakening of the function of that structure,
to be followed by prompt deterioration, in the structure itself ; and
soon there will be apparent all the derangements of health determ
ined by the particular life-proce3ses being subverted. If the
heart is the organ thus weakened there may be any form of heart
disease, acute or chronic, from angina pectoris and deficient cir
culation to valvular mischief, dropsy, etc.
If it is the lung region involved, then any of the diseases of the
respiratory tract is likely. It may be that the lung vitality will
become weakened to the point where tubercular bacilli are per
mitted to propagate and bring on the ravages of "consumption."
(It is certain that this much dreaded disease germ is harmless
when introduced into healthy lung tissue.) It may be that not
tuberculosis, but asthma, or bronchitis, or pleurisy, or pneumonia
are the product.
BILIOUSNESS; PILES; GALLSTONES
If it is the liver most involved there may result any form of
disease dependent upon the half-dozen important functions of the
liver disordered digestion, biliousness, auto-intoxication in any
of protean forms horrid complexion to jaundice and fevers;
anemia, piles, gallstones or, perhaps diabetis.
If it is the spleen any of the blood and nutritive disturbance
centering about that organ perhaps anemia, perhaps malaria,
perhaps rheumatism, perhaps leucemia, perhaps various other ills.
The functions of the spleen have been thought to be rather mys
terious until scientific men have recently shown it to be the most
important in life.
If it is the kidneys whose currents of vital activity are with
held, there may be nephritis with uremic poisoning and its awful
wake of pain and death. Bright's disease, a steadily progressive
destruction of kidney tissue which medical science has sought
to explain by a hundred different causes is very often the result
of an injury to the spine (such as has been already explained),
robbing the organ of its nutritive support andsuch simple
mechanical ills very often can be readily adjusted by the Mechano
Therapist if only given a chance in time.
ILLS OF THE JOINTS
If it is a "joint" that has its nutritive fibers disturbed, there
will result likely a "synovitis" such as surgeons cut into the
knees and sometimes amputate legs for when merely setting a
partially dislocated hip or mal-adjustment of the pelvio bones
would often cure the malady. If the disturbance is more general,
the "arthropathies," so called, or joint diseases, are likely, giving
rheumatoid arthritis, etc.
If ihe ovarian or uterine centers happen to be the ones involved,
there will result any of the common ills from which women suffer
painful, delayed or suppresed menstruation; weakness of pel-
vice organs and tissues, with consequent displacements and lnfla
mation, attended by pain and loss of function. Here, emphatically,
"doctoring" the organs directly, according to establised gyne
cological practice, is a most fruitful source of ill and is wanting in
logical defense, inasmuch as the trouble usually lies further back
is manifestly and palpable a "lesion" at, or connection with, defi
nite spinal centers. Primary lesions of the "fixed" joints of the
palvis are very often responsible for women's ills and in such
cases there will usually be found lesions at the related spinal cen
ters which have been induced sympathetically, reflexly, second
arily. WOMEN NOT MADE TO BE CUT TO PIECES
Before the advent of bloodless surgery ruthless surgery was in
vogue. Even today there is too great a tendency in that direc
tion. There are thousands of women leading a cheerless existance
who are the victims of misplaced confidence in surgeons whose
eyes have been strangely blinded to the truth. Invariable in tel
ling of her symptoms the patient will exclaim: "Oh, doctor, I
can't tell you how my back hurts!" or something to that effect.
Strange to say, doctors generally regard the accompanying back
ache as secondary to the pelvic disorder. This is clearly a serious
mistake. It has been abundantly proven that instead oi DacKacne
being a result it is only another manefestation of the cause of
uterine trouble. The real cause is in the back, and the ache is
symptomatic. The proof lies in the fact that after years of the
best treatment other doctors could devise a cure is effected by
correction of spinal faults. Drugless medicine and bloodless sur
gery is here to stay because it gets these results.
Continued Next Week.

Final Organization Meeting Wednesday.
A fine stroke of business was put I
through by promoter Sparling of the
Morrow County Creamery & Cold
Storage Company of Heppner at a
meeting of the Stockholders of the
defunct Lexington Creamery which
was held in that city last Saturday
when he closed a deal whereby the
new institution becomes the owner of
the property and chatties owned by
the Lexington people. All of the
directors except Mr. Her, and the
mortgagors, were present and accept
ed Mr. Sparling's bid of $1460 for the
property. $875 of this amount is to
be paid in cash and the balance of
00 is to be distributed pro rata
among the shareholders who are milk
producers The Hazlewood Company
of Portland outbid Mr. Sparling but
upon the earnest plea of R. L. Benge,
who pointed out that the shareholders
could afford to sacrifice a few dollars
in order to favor a local company,
Mr. Sparling's bid was accepted and
the New Creamery company becomes

the owner of a building costing $1500,
a lot valued at $500, an engine valued
at the same price and considerable
machinery and apparatus worth in the
neighborhood of $1000, all for an out
lay of only $875 cash. Besides this
they have the good will and support
of a number of dairymen.
, Notices have been sent to the 80
members of the new creamery com
pany, to inform them of the fact that
next Wednesday, the 27th, the meet
ing, to receive the charter and perfect
the organization, including the elec
tion of officers, will be held at The
Oddfellow Hall in Heppner at 2
o'clock p. m. Every member that can
possibly do so should arrange to be
present and all those who have not
yet taken out stock but desire to do so
should attend to the matter before
In the meantime Mr. Sparling is
to be congratulated for his efforts in
closing the deal with the Lexington
