The chaw stick is a vegetable tooth brush.
Tho negroes hero noted for fine white teeth,
and often you will see them with a piece of
chaw stick in the mouth. The plant has a
flexible stem which climbs by tendrils. This
looks liko licorice root This cut into fcix
inch lengths, the ends chewed, furnish a
Obrous vegetable binslj. It contains an aro
matic, sightly Litter principle allied to soap
in its effect; hence chewing it, as we say of a
tavorite dentifrice, makes the teeth clean,
the mouth sweet, the breath fragrant. The
colored folks at public fi&tivals sell small
beer of various flavors on tho street, and with
this chaw stick they give it froth.
The children have a living fountain of
chewing gum trees. There is in the hospital
grounds a fine example of Ileus Indiea, tho fig
which yields India rubber. The leaves large,
oval, thick, shining aud vivid green; the
roots spread over much surface. The chil
dren scrape olT a little bark, the milk flows,
and they let it run over the finger and
palms. When I saw this dane I thought it
would be a lqr,g job to get those hands free
from the sticky stuff. But lo! on exjosurc
to the air a few minutes, rubbing the hands
together meanwhile, the milk became dark
gray and presently peeled off and left the
skin as clean as if washed with soap. A vast
improvement over soap and towels.
