"We subjoin as an introductory to our advertisement an able article by the editor of a prominent Dental Journal , on the history of Mechanical Dentistry , its difficul
ties and its successes. He was induced to the writing of the following by a personal experience of the different kinds of work used for a period of over twenty-five years.
A Brief History of Mechanical Dentistry.
Difficulties Besetting its progress and Its Final Success.
The nrt of constructing mid properly adjusting nrtlflclal tooth nnd ortiflcml
.plates will not bo without interest , even to tlio casual render , for.tho perfection to
which this most useful art hns attained , from the period of Its crude nnd bungling
essays , is perhaps , unsurpassed in nny other department nnd must nfford pleasure
to every true lover of progress. One of the most serious deformities nnd incon
veniences Incident to ago , nnd one , toonot confined to pray luiira , but common to
the adult , nnd oven to the youth , is the decay and linal loss of those moat useful
organs of speech nnd mnfltlc'ition. the teeth.
And it must ho a sort of gratification to every lover of progress , as well ns
every friend of humanity , to know that by the discoveries nrndo In this nrt those
doficloncicB can ho so far remedied as that the loss of our teeth cnn be considered
no longer an unallovintod nfllictlon. They can now bo replaced by artificial ones
BO closely resembling the natural ns not to bo doteotod without close examination
nn.d s" wall subserving every purpose ns greatly to mitigate the inconvenience of
their loss. It is a pleasure to record that mechanical dentistry nas arrived nt
such a Btato of perfection , which twenty years ago its most zealous operators
novur anticipated or dreamed of.
But ho who thinks that practical and successful dentistry cnn bo performed by
nny one with almost no skill is greatly mistaken. Ho who would bo a suc
cessful dentist should unite tin enlightened judgment with great practical skill.
Ilo should understand thonnatomyof physiology of the mouth and bo thoroughly
skilled in the various mechanical munipulntions that pertain to the prothosis
of these organs.
Iff Tooth can not , like coats , bo furnished rondy mndo to order. No one can ho-
como a successful dentist in this department unless ho bo a natural mechanic.
There is now more qunckory in this art ihnn any other extant. Lot us look
briefly at its history.
Substances Employed for Artificial Teeth.
Tho'qualitics which should bo sought In nrtificial teeth are durability nnd
resemblance to the natural organs.
In the first ossavs of this urt human tooth were employed. When these wcro
sound and coated with a good enamel and wcro suitable in every respect they
were oatoomod preferable to nny other substance. But think of the difUculttes
presented hero in the defects of the material itself , deficiency of the supply , nn
started to do , under the order of the court
Lhat they were to run HO cars thereon until
the final determination of the suit.
Judge Field then entered im order allowing
thorn to lay track on Twelfth street between
O nnd P streets and ronlaco the pavements
thereon and granted nn Injunction In favor of
the plaintiff , restraining defendants from
running cars upon the same.
A. Properly Qualification for Council-
nion Tljo AsHcsHorshlp Question.
Nine of the members of the charter amend
ment commltieo met In 'Mayor Cusuinc'a '
ofllcoat 3 o'clock ' yesterday afternoon. The
first thing considered was a petition from a
number of citizens who protested against sa
loons and dnnco halls run under the same
roof. Thcso people wanted the saloons nnd
the dnnco halls at least 100 foot apart. They
also wanted dnnco halls licensed , but in no
way would they have tnls apply to halls used
by societies. The communication was laid on
the table nnd may bo considered at som o fut
ure mooting.'o
A section was adopted by which the city's '
share for paving streets and laying sidewalks
around parks shall in the future bo paid out
of the funds sot aside for park purposes.
For park purposes the council was given
authority to purchase lands , nnd improve
them , at nny point within six miles of the
present city limits. Park bonds are to bo
voted and paid In the same manner as paving
nnd curbing bonds.
Mr. Chalice thought that in the future he-
fore a nmn cnn ho eligible to the ofllco of city
councilman ho shall bo worth at least $3,000
above all debts , liabilities nnd exemptions.
A motion to lay on the table was defeated.
Mr.Popplotou was opposed to any property
Mr , Bcchol thought that the line should bo
drawu at 12,000 , , and submitted his thoughts
In the form of an amendment. The amend
ment was carried.
A former proposition for the appointment
of an assessor- for the city was reconsidered
nnd again discussed.
A charter amendment was nt last
adopted , by which in metropolitan cities
tho" mayor shall appoint nn assessor
with a salary of t,000. Ho shall glvo bonds
In the sum of $10,00. . ? and after being ap
pointed shiill bo conflrmea by the city coun
cil nnd the board of county commissioners.
Ho shall assess lor state , county and city pur
poses , and his valuation placed upon prop
erty shall bo taken by the state nnd count } ' ,
An ofllce shall bo kept open during the entire
year , whore the boons or the ofllco shall al
ways bo open. This man shall appoint his
own deputies , who shall receive $3 per day
while actually employed. The term of ofllco
shnll bo for two years unless sooner removed.
Tills nppoln ment shall bo iniulo as soon
as the charter amendments are adopted
by the legislature. This , If it is parsed , leg-
Isintcs the mou out of oOlco who were elected
last full.
The rnto of Interest on deferred payments
upon city obligations was changoJ from 7 to
0 nor cent.
The uoxt mooting of the committee will beheld

The Paul Blto Fund.
The members of the board of education
held a ton-minute session yesterday after
noon , and during that time they accomplished
what they hare been working upon for SOT-
the revolting idea of wearing another's teeth , In which , perhaps , were disease.
The repugnance can scarcely bo overcome.
The teeth of nont cnttto were also used by altering tholr shape , those , of
course , being fitted hy sawing1 nnd filing ; but by the absorption nnd decomposition
of the saliva they became fuctid , randorlntr the tnsto and odor very offensive.
Teeth from ivory and tuslcs of the hippopotamus were next used , but these ,
like the Inst mentioned , wcro pormonblo by the fluids of the mouth nnd soon
became obnoxious to the wearer , ns well ns to these who wcro in his presence.
Porcelain tooth wcro afterward introduced by the French , but these , too , were
deficient in BO many ways that they were not received nt first with approbation.
The Perfection of the Art Dueto the Americans.
Although the Pronch led the way In this most valuable invention , it ia princi
pally to American Dentists wo nro indebted for the perfection now attained in the
manufacture of porcelain tooth.
A want of resemblance to the natural tooth , in color and animation , was the
great objection urged against porcelain.
Such perfection has now boon attained that few can toll these teeth from the
Their advantages over every sort of animal substance are numerous.
They can bo more perfectly fitted to the mouth and are worn with greater
onvonionco and comfort.
They do not absorb its secretions , and , if properly cleansed , do not contnin-
nate the breath nnd never change their color.
These and other considerations entitle them to universal favor.
Methods of Applying Artificial Teeth.
Iloro great progress has boon attained In this nrt , as in the soleetion of the
material for the tooth. The methods for applying the teeth are four : First , on
roots of natural tooth ; second , on plate , with clasps ; third , with spring , and
f pur th , by atmospheric pressure. "Wo need not descant upon the comparative ad
vantages and disndvantagos of thcso several methods.
The dependence upon atmospheric pressure is now almost universally re
garded as the most approved course , and the one practiced most extensively.
The firmness with which teeth cnn be made to ndhero on this principle render
them the moot desirable. There may be cases which might determine recourse
to one of the other methods , but they will bo found rare indeed.

purpose ol transferring some of the bchool
money back to the Paul school site fund ,

A resolution to transfer § 20,000 , was Intro

A Letter Which Shows Him Up In
His True Light.
J. Austin Hake , the South Omaha commission -
mission merchant , Is In receipt of the follow
ing letter from A. C. Hopkins , the man who
recently created something of an uproar
among the Indians by claiming to bo the
Messiah :
CHAMIIEIIU.IK , S. D. , Dec. 29. Dear Friend
Aust : I am Just down from , Crow Creek
agency , and In the same financial condition I
was when I was sontoutof Pine Hid go.
Have asked thrco acquaintances.hero for $5

rassing to bo the Messiah , but I like it first
rate on the wholo. Shall try to "touch"
George Babcoko ( our old Princeton and
Ulpon stage driver , you know ) and if that
fails there's one other man and a clmnco to
pawn my ring and then "Pm up a stump. "
Am trying to got back to Canton , having
done Lower Brule and Crow Creek agencies.
I'm ' so tickled I hardly know how to contain
myself , and so decidedly embarrassed that
myself will hardly contain mo. I suppose I
could get used to being a beggar nnd n tramp ,
but I haven't really learned to like It yet.
A beautiful day , with the mercury ut C5 = or

otherwise. Mot H , aboard train coming back
from Pine Rldgo and ho , took mo to dinner.
It "knocked him clear out nt one knock" to
know that I was the Messiah , but his pretty
wife stood it first rate. I don't ' dare stamp

'llio Cliy Printing.
Suit was brought In the district conrt- yes
terday by Edward Hosowater to restrain the
mayor and the city council from entering
into n contract with the World-Herald lor
doing the city printing for the year 1801.
The petition ullegcs that the city council
had no right to udncrtlso for bids , as the law
provides that at the commencement of tlio
year some dolly newspaper shall bo desig
nated as the official paper of the city : that
by the terms of n conti net with the SVorld-
Herald that paper Is the official organ until
February 4 , 18'Jl ' , nnd is under bonds to do
all city printing until that date. The poll-
tion further alleges that for the year JS'JO the
official printing has amounted to $2,500 , , but
under the terms of the pretended contract
for 1801 It will amount to fully * 7COO ; that in
response to the ndvertisomont for bids the
Daily Democrat submitted n bid that was
much lower than that of the World-Herald ,
but this bid was Ignored.

Last Great Improvement Continuous Gum
But the no plus ultra of the denial nrt , and that which should suporccdo all
former practice , is that which has been denominated the continuous gum , in
vented by Dr. J.Allen , formerly of Cincinnati , now of Now York City.
On its first introduction there were , as almost always happens , many practi
cal ditlicultles to bo overcome.
But all dilllcultios have , to the ono skilled in manipulation , nt length been
overcome , rendering the tooth , thus mndo , tuoro durable , natural in appearance
almost defying detection , and most elToctivo in mastication , the most important
function of teeth , nnd the ono hitherto imperfectly attained.
A sot of continuous gum tooth has many advantages ever these formed in
any other way.
And , first , there can bo no counterfeiting or alloying of the metal employed
for the plate , which is platinum.
If alloyed it will not bear the heat employed in baking. The motalis not
acted upon by the lluids of the mouth. The platinum plate being moro compact
and at the earno time more pliable , Is made to lit more completely every irregu
larity of the mouth , and when flowed over with porcolam.'becomos very much
Acain there are no interstices in which the food cnn lodge , rendering artifi
cial tooth , ns ordinarily made , olfonsivo and unhealthy.
Ooportunity is furnished to adapt the verge of the gum more perfectly to the
mouth , nud thus filling out the contour of the jaw , rendering the face more youth
ful and natural in anpoiranco.
It is impossible to break the tooth otT by proper usage. They much
smoother to the mouth , nnd persons who have used both say that the continuous
gum is n support and it is unpleasant to bo without thoin. Indeed , these who
have used the gold pinto , made in the best poasiblo iniinnar , and subsequently the
continuous gum , say there is no comparison.

ram to Tun BKE.J This cftornuon Gov-
irnor Thayer listened to the appeals for the
pardon of poor old Warren Clough , who has
been in prison fifteen years on the charge of
murdering his own brother. The evidence
that convicted dough was circumstantial
only , but somhody had to bo punished for the
crime and on the brother of the murdered
man the blame wns laid. Tuo old neighbors
of Warren dough in Sownrd have of late
l > cgun to bollovo that possibly nn innocent

thnt the testimony which sent Clough to the

and wash it off with cold wntuiv. That

"Hot wutor I consider bad for llilsrca.
