Two Misses Who Used to Love

Exchange Glares; a
Sad Tale. I
Cupid has been playing havoc with
hearts in the city hall, the result of
this latest escapade of the little god
with how and arrows being that two
misses of the municipal building do .
ni't speak as tiey pass by. ;
In oilier days it was the wont of
tliec maidens to eat out of each oth- :
er's. box of candy and to place their j
arms around each other's neck. Now i
they widen the distance between ;
them and exchange cold looks.
It is another case 01 "all's fair in ,
luxe and xxar." ,
One of these maidens had a ''steady ;
beau" who averred that her eyes were
as the stars above, her smile like
sunshine and lier voice like the music j
of the angels. All went xvell until this
girl's friend smiled upon the young
l.ochinvar. Then it happened. ,
The young man in the case trans- :

DonT Extract a tooth
that can be saved
That is my message to the public and my instructions
to my entire staff of Dental Specialists.
It is my positive conviction after many years of experience
as a Cental Surgeon, that a large percentage of the
"grief" that causes dissatisfaction with the work of Den
tists as a whole comes from CARELESS OR IGNORANT
disregard of these two "don'ts."
I have saved thousands of teeth for my patients by taking
the time to TREAT diseased or decayed teeth and to clean
them and thus eliminate diseases common to the teeth
and gums, before attempting either fillings or crowning.
It requires more time, more work and more skill for the
same fee, but I have proven that it pays dividends in satis
faction I admit the selfish element: It pays me well to give my
patients better service for less money.
I believe strongly in honest advertising and I know of no
other method so productive of results as word of mouth
advertising of my satisfied and grateful patients.
