the heedless care of teeth that are more harmful to the body than those
arising from neglect of the skin To hinder the first appearance of decay
is one secret of sound teeth that last for life Unless this is done the enjoy
ment of perfect teeth takes a flight which never returns The desire my
patients have to trust their teeth to my care and continuous attention is
one evidence of operations that please Make that intended call now

the capital and even the smaller

aristocratic families of which the
daughters and sons are sent to Europe
to be educated and which maintain an
delusiveness that must be almost iso

In he early morning In the streets
of Asuncion the women gather In their
long white dresses and barefooted to
sell their wares The younger women
judged by our standard are beautiful
and from carrying baskets and water
jars on their heads have attained an
erect and graceful carriage which oir
young women could well imitate Be
sides when they laugh they show two
rows of pearls and their speech in
soft Guarani patois is worth going far
to hear
When you see Asuncion you see Par
aguay for it is the most advanced
city in the republic Its streets are
poorly paved it has mule cars which
run at long intervals and low spen

exceptional but there is a kind of lazy

Best Way to Destroy Gunpowder and
The best way to destroy ordinary
black gunpowder is to throw it into a
stream under conditions that prevent
any harm coming to human beings or
animals through the dissolving of the
saltpeter If no suitable stream is
available the gunpowder may be stir
red with water in tubs or the dry gun
powder may be poured out on the
ground in a long thin line and ignited
with a fuse at one end
To destroy dynamite cartridges the
paper wr nings should be carefully
removed i ie bare cartridges laid in a
row with their ends in contact and the
first cartridge ignited with a fuse with
out -a cap Even with these precau
tions a simultaneous explosion of the
entire mass may occur so that It is
wise to retire to a safe distance The
row of cartridges should be laid paral
lel with the wind and ignited at the
leeward end so that the flame will be
driven away from the mass
Frozen dynamite should be handled
with special care as its combustion is
peculiarly liable to assume an explo
sive character A small quantity of
dynamite may be destroyed by throw
ing it in very small bits into an open
fire or the cartridges may be exploded
one by one In the open air with fuses
and caps
Dynamite should never be thrown
into water as the nitroglycerin which
it contains remains undissolved and
capable of doing mischief Other ex
plosives which contain nitroglycerin
should be treated in the same way as
Ammonium nitrate explosives may
be thrown in small fragments into an
open fire or if they do not contain ni
troglycerin may be destroyed by means
of water Explosive caps should be ex
ploded singly with pieces of fuse Sci

His Vocabulary
He was an only child They were
very particular about his manner of
speech constantly correcting him so
that he would use beautiful English
He however was allowed now and
then to associate with other children
He played with a neighbor boy a long
while one day and when he came
home there was an ecstatic smile on
his face
I like that boy mother he said
I like him very much He swears
beautifully He knows every word

Our friend Lem dropped in this week for a
little chat and got off the sayings that you see
bordering this add We thought they were
good enough to publish and let everybody
read We also think that we can not say too
much about the stock we have to sell If you
are going to repair your fence or build a house
or use building material in any manner then
you will make money by seeing our stock If
good quality and a live and let live price is
nothing to you keep away I have had years
of experience in all lines of the lumber busi
ness selling and building Let me help you
arrange the home that you intend to build I
have made this a study Maybe you think
that you can not afford to build I might
show you where you can cheapen the job so
that you can afford to build that house or
barn that you have been figuring on It will
cost you nothing to drop in and talk it over
and I will do all in my power to please you
