THE SLKIW Tii.'Bl'KE. ELKIN. WORTH CAROHNA
(By John Joseph Gaines, M. D.)
A very robust lady, weight 26 2;
pounds, wife of a farmer in the west,
came with a backache that disabled
her, and which no medicine seemed |
to relieve more than temporarily.
A thorough examination of this
lady revealed no organic lesion.
Evidently her spinal muscles were
suffering from overuse, just muscu- j
lar overstrain. She was a most per
fectly built woman, almost a giant-.
ess. She had borne eleven children, |
most of them weighing 12 or 13
pounds at birtn. And. no pelvic in
juries of any kind. Her age, 46.
My treatment, rest, and DRY
HEAT applied daily: the infra-red |
ray over the zone complained of. |
Six treatments, with REST, cured
the woman; she left yesterday for
This was not "rheumatism," nor
any part of it. All remedies aimed
at rheumatic infection would have
proven futile. I have seen such pa-1
tlents treated with intravenous in

salicylates—only to record failure.
Another case Is on hand now, her
tenth and last treatment comes to

morrow—is so now, but she wanted
to,be sure to take treatment enough.
The treatment was the same—in

day. I gave her no medicines. She
walks two and three mileß every day.

THE NEW YEAR
Greetings to all! Adieu to 1931.
You and I, dear reader, have marked
another milepost on our trip. With
the increase in speed they seem to
show up much faster —thes e mile
posts. And yet, there are precisely
as % many hours in this year aa thcr«-
were in the year of our Lord, num
ber one. It's just busier that we
are, that's all. So busy we don't
notice the passing of time.
Every department of science has
made strides during the past year;
medicine has progressed too. I
think I can break up a cold now
much quicker than I have ever done
before. Just put my patient to bed
for ONE DAY, and give him a tablet
every hour until prespiration starts
freely. That's all there is to it. And,
he might get well as fast with a
tumblerful of hot water every hour,
instead of the sweating tablet. But
then, the patient wouldn't feel like
he was being treated properly unless
he had a little medicine, now, would
And I have learned to be skepti
cal about GERMS hammering down
the enamel of teeth—the hardest
substance in the human structure.
Necrosis of bone takes place when
nutrition Is cut off by violence,
plugged canals and other causes.
Chances are, germs have nothing
whatever to do with destruction of
the enamel of teeth. Let's be sensi
ble in the coming year. Your fam
ily doctor is able to tell you when
and how to fight germb.
My New Year resolves are em
bodied in the simple determination
to fit myself for BETTER SERVICE
in the taking care of my fellow-man
and myself during the coming year.
I will be alert for the right, as my
Master Kives me to see tha right.
God bless you all!

high executives, and the discussion
turned to economic problems. Pres

How can we hope for any sensible

I was annoyed.
All my business life I have listened

men. My judgment is that they are
fairly representative of the nation,
neither better nor worse than the
rest of us. They do not originate
very much in the matter of national
policy and legislation. They merely
record in laws the sentiment that
grows up in the country around
them. They respond to public
