RIGHT CARE OF TEETH
'MOST HIGHLY DESIRABLE POINT
'increasing Dally Attention and Coned-
entlous Visits to the Dentist Are-
Imperatlve If Good Looks Are
to Be Preserved.
A good, firm whlto set of teoth la
moro to bo desired than a raro string
of pearls. Unfortunately all cannot
poEsess good teeth, but tho few wom
en who have a perfectly good whlto
net of teeth should guard them as they
would tho finest Jowels. On good au
thority, it may bo Btatcd that a bad
stomach causos bad teeth, and If tho
ntomach Is not kept in good condition,
no matter how Btrong tho teeth may
be, they cannot last.
Germa develop and Hvo almost
cvorywhero. When thero la one bad
x tooth In tho mouth, thero Is certain to
bo germs. Ono bad tooth not taken
care of In time may lead to many vis
its to tho dentist and possibly tho loss
' of ono or moro teeth.
Somo years Sack tho dentist would
be visited onco a year, later on twlco
a year was considered sufficient, but
now four tlmoj or every three months
TiTueenied nono too' often to lmyo tho
dentist look your Jeeth over, Thare
may bo a tfny cavity, so Bmall, In fact,
that It la revealed only when tho
dentist looks through his magnifying
glaBS. nut that cavity attended to In
tlmo will Involve small coBt, little
pain, and result In tho preservation of
the tooth. Sometimes tho dentist's
examination may fall to roveal a small
cavity way down near a root and If
you yourself do not find It soon It will
mean a good-sized filling when you
next visit tho dentist. Therefore, If
longer than three months Is allowed
to elapso between tho visits to tho
iflentlst It Is easy to estimate the dam
ago that may result to your teeth.
Much has been written and said con
cerning the care of tho teeth, and In
many instances the statements are ex
treme. One of them that tho condi
tion of tho teeth depends wholly on
the caro given them Is arbitrary and
untrue. As a matter of cleanliness and
a meana of aiding tho. preservation
and enhancing the beauty of tho teeth,
unceasing dally attontlon should bo
bestowed upon them, but even under
theso ministrations teeth will decay,
lose their color and becomo useless,
and it is not unuBual to see rows of
strong, whltepBound-looklng teeth that
have never known brush or dentifrice.
Unsound teeth nro duo to constitu
tional defects, unless tho teeth have
been abused by being made to servo as
nut-crackers or having some equally
abnormal task forced upon them.
Their color, too, If dark, may result
from the use of Iron, as a medicine,
or from an acid condition of tho stom
ach, and all brushing, cleaning and
polishing that may be given them will
not restore them to their original
Thero are also teeth which nro of a
waxon-whlto or yellow Ivory tint. Tho
former have pearly, transparent edges,
indicating a delicate constitution and
like it are frail and doomed, soon to
decay. The latter are strong and
generally belong to a person of vigor
ous constitution, but no amount of
brushing or scouring will over bleach
Them to whiteness that Is not natural
rIt Is claimed by some that sweets
nre Injurious to tho teeth. Puro cane
Bugar candy or maplo sugar will not
corrode tho teoth, even If one partake
plenteously of these sweets. Tho teeth
need wprk and exerclso, and, If proper
ly used and not abused, whatever is
good for the stomach and can bo prop
erly digested will not harm the teeth,
The real harm is done when crumbs
nro left in tho teeth, especially over
night. Then acid accumulate?, and
Bjpwly eats tho enamel, &hd onco
Tlils occurs thoro wilj soon bo a
Never uso a toothpick of any kind.
For removing Iho crumbs between tho
teoth dental floss Is better. It should
bo drawn between tho teeth after eat
ing and always before retiring at
night. It Is not necosary to use pow
der every day, but It Ib necessary to
brush tho teeth morning and night
with tepid wator to which a pinch or
two of borax hau been added. This

tooth clean. Two or three times a
week brush them with powtier, and

A Budget of Queries.
Would like to know In tho next Is
sue, If possible, If it is propor to ac
knowledge an invitation (It ono in
tends going) to a luncheon, whun
Invitation Is on ordinary calling card.
Also when Invitation Is formal. Ib it
proper to call after a reception or
luncheon and should ono leave cards?
Is it proper to acknowledge aft Invita
tion to an "at home," and If bo, how
should It be worded? Also, la It pro
per at a homo wedding to take placo
at six o'clock for a brldo to wear a
dress with a train without a long vell?;
E.very invitation where the hostess
provides a luncheon, dinner or sup
per should bo acknowledged at once,
or elso how Is sho to know for how
many to prepare? My theory Is that
every invitation should bo accepted
or regretted just aB Boon as possible.
In tho Btrict sense of tho word and
according to the old-fashioned rules
of etiquette, calls should bo mado af
ter accepting hospitality, but In this
busy generation and on account of
tho great distances In cities ono over
looks tho fact that guests do not pay
party calls, for it is almost Impossible.
A brldo may decide for herself exact
ly tho costumo sho wishes to bqjnar
rled In, and a short gown minus veil
and train Is proper If It best suits her
plans, her purso and her convenience.
Concerning a Shower.
Am giving a shower for a-glrl friend
of mlno and would llko if you would
glvo mo a few suggestions. Do not
wish to play cards, but would like to
do other things. I thought for one

Is a good one, and you could glvo tho

Concerning a Wedding.
I am to have a morning wedding
with about thirty guests; may I ask
several questions, and will you please
help mo plan for it? Are invitations

Is the double ring ceremony becoming

IntlSfcil, you iila'y" usk just all tho
Questions you wish. I am right horo
to answer them to tho best of my
ability. For a simple homo-wjbddlng
you need not Bend engraved invita
tions, but Just llttlo notes or ask tho
relatives nnd guests yourself to wit
ness tho ceremony. Tho double ring
ceremony Ib qulto" popular, but It and
tho question of whether you stand fac
ing tho guests or with your back to
them is Just for you to decide and tho
clergyman who is to officiate usually
has some preference to express which
ho will do at rehearsal.

Country Girl's Answer,
It Is perfectly proper to ask a young
man to call again If you really would
like him to do bo. Thoro probably
would bo no harm in going motoring
alono, but I do not thing It wise.
Klghtcon-year-old girls can not bo too
careful of what they do, and how, and
when, and with whom. It may Boem
a bit prudish but I assuro you I do
not mean It so.
Reply to "Anxious."
I do not think girls your ago noed
make a "curtsey." It is very pretty
for tho "younger girls nnd Is taught
in dancing school. I think your hair

It Is too lato to reply to your firot
questions but tho department had bo
much about tho subject, that I trust
you had your wants supplied. I think

IT WAS JPAPA'S IDEA
And It Went Awry as Papa's
Ideas Usually Do in Love
By DONALD ALLEN.
Tho papa was Mr. John Forbush,
who possessed n character for gen
eral probity and a wife nnd daughter,
the latter being named Jonnlo. Sho
was twenty years old tho day her
father began to Bchomo.
Thoso who had known Mr. Forbush
for a slnglo year and thoro were
mnny who had know him for a dozen
or more would havo laughed at tho
Idea of IiIb scheming. Ho had money
lent out, nnd tho Intorest on it, to
gether with tho dollarB ho mado as a
notnry nnd other ways, kept tho llttlo
family going In nlco shape. Thoro was
no usury In lending tho money, and If
tho borrower couldn't return It on tho
date recorded ho was granted moro
. Mr. Forbush paid his debts If- ho
made any, had "a pow In church, nnd
novcr 'wrangled with his neighbors
nbout religion or politics. Ho went
around very quietly, smiling at all and
thoro wasn t a baby n tho town with
less guile than ho, Judging by his face.
Iu hlB homo llfo ho was a loving father
and a fond husband. Ono might as
woll look for thunder without clouds
as for such a man to scheme, and
against" hla own family at that.
As Miss Jonnlo ForbuBh was by far
the handsomeBt girl In tho. town she
hud plenty of admirers. Sho wasn't a
girl to bo won by monqy, but as sho
would get llttlo or nothing from Iter
father It was only natural that sho
should do a bit of thinking now nnd
then. Scarco ono of tho young men
about her could have shown a hundred
dollars laid by. It'o nice to bo In love,
and it's nicer to bo married, but tho
landlords expect their rent, nnd gro
cers and butchers must bo paid.
Mr. Forbush could not help but
know that his daughter was Bought
for, but ho was only mildly Interested.
Onco in. awhile ho and his wife talked
tho matter over a bit and went as far
aB to hope that Miss Jennie would
mako a good match, but they said very
llttlo to her on the subject. They did
not know when or how young Gilbert
Dale came Into tho field, nnd tho
daughter did not enlighten them.
Gilbert Dale's father Was a re
spected citizen of a town ten miles
away. Tho son wasn't respected so
much. He was twenty-three years old,
and staid old mombors of tho com
munity In which ho lived held up
tholr hands in horror when ho camo
racing by In Ills auto, or they heard
that ho had participated in anothor
wlno supper. Nothing at all vicious
about him, but Just going the paco
'till something should happen to bring
him up short. An old hen and a
young man must turn around a few
times before they can settle down.
In duo tlrno young Dale got a part
of what was coming to him. Ho was
racing his auto along a country road
all alone, and noting aB his own
chauffeur, when tho machine suddenly
Bwerved and he was thrown out to roll
down the bank and Into a river whero
tlto chances of a stunned man for be
ing drowned were nine out ot ten.
Miss Jennie Forbush was" no heroine.
Sho had never even scratched tho kero
Bono can from tho hands of her moth
er ns tho latter was about to hurry
up the fire. If she had ever even read
of heroines she had not Bighed 10 bo
one. Yet, when the critical moment
camo she went at it as If she h.nd
played the part many seasons. Sho
! was on her way to visit a girl friend
living a couple of miles outside the
town, and she was on tho Bpot when
tho accident occurred. Down tho
bank sho went after tho young man,
and at some peril p herself dragged
him BBhore boforo It was too late.
Miss Forbush had saved Mr. Dalo'B
life. Why shouldn't sho fall In love
with him? Mr. Dale wob grateful and
full of admiration. Why shouldn't hu
say as In tho play: "My llfe'belonga
At any rate thoy met again, and
again, and It wns a cause for wonder
how the young man settled down and
mended his ways. Even hia mother
Enid that tho cliango was something
beyond her to flguro out.
And now came the scheming. Mr.
Jason Brush was a widower of th vil
lage. Ho had been for fifteen jwirs,
when ho had a dream one night that
ho ought to got married again Tho
dream made a great impression, and
ho went to his minister with It Tho
good man hearc! tho particulars and
"I can't say that I am a bollewr In
dreams. I have dreamed that tin- con
gregation ralBed my salary and .mid
it cash down as fast an due, but noth
lng of the kind followed."
TJut tho voice was so plain," bighed
"Did It tell you to marry the widow
"No sir. Why parson sho Ib older
than I be!"
"Wns any name mentioned?"
"I can't remember."
"Just told you that you ought to
get a Bccond wife?"
"Thnt'H all. Do you think It was
my dead wifo talking to mc from
"Hardly!" waB the dry reply "Bet
ter wait and see if you don't dream
tho same dream again and get a name
or two to guldo you."
Mr. nruBh went away with that un
derstanding, and fate was very kind
to him. He was back next forenoon
"Well, I had the same dream over
again last night, and tho voice named
the party I was to marry."
"That's remarkable, replied tho di
vine. "So 'tis. I'm Buro it was my wlfo'a
"It must hnvo startled you?"
"Oh, I dunno. I was rather look
ing for It. It told mo to marry John
ForbiiBh'H daughter Jonnlo."
"Ah, I soo. A young lady of nbout
"I can be a father to her at tho samo
Tho parson had nothing to say for or
against It, and Mr. Urush went away
to mnko hla beginning with Mr. For
bush. Ho had scarcely spoken ton
words when a grent Bchemo flashed
through tho brain of tho man who had
never schemed boforo. Mr. Forbush
was wealthy. Ho could back a father-in-law
In business. Ho had political
lulluenco, nnd could help a father-in-law
to a scat In tho legislature. Ho
was getting old nnd liable to drop oft
any time, and tho wifo would got nil
he loft. Great thing! Dig thing!
"While I am something over forty,
I am no antcdlluvlnn," observed Mr.
"Far from It."
"I am still fond of plnlcs and danc
ing' "Of course."
"And ready to run down to Boston
for ntwook any tlmo."
"Jonnlo would bo delighted."
"Sho could havo a colt-skin coat
when winter comos."
"I tnuan't Torgct to tell her that."
"I shan't bo Jealous of her. Sho can
go to prnyer-mcotlng nlono any tlmo
sho- wants to."
"I Bhall tell her ovcrythlng and re
port to you."
Miss Jennie received her father's
nows with laughter, nnd refused to bo
serious nbout It. When Mr. Hrush
called In person ho recolved tho samo
treatment. Ho was not Insulted nor
mado Indignant, but his vows nnd pro
testations were received as Humorous
Thero wero calls on tho parson, but
ho would not mix In. Thoro wero con
fabs with Mr. Forbush, but ho could
glvo the victim no suro hope. Thoro
woro frequent calls and pleadings, but
thoy gained nothing. Things stood in
UiIb way when Mr. Forbush ono day
took Mr. Urush off to a grovo half a
mllo from riny houso, nnd sat him
down nnd looked nil around for eaves
droppers, and then whispered:
"Tho tlmo has como."
"What! HaB sho consonted?"
"Wo must try herolo measures.
She must bo won In anothor way."
"I've got a scheme thnt'B suro to
Then Mr. Forbush put his lips closo
to Mr. Ilrush'B ear and whlsporod
Boft wlilspors for a long minute, and
tho old man scrambled up to explain:
"Suro's you live! When can It
"Jonnlo goes out thoro tomorrow
"Then we'll put tho thing through,
Forbush, you aro a schomor nnd an
old fox In the bushes! I'll havo you

At nbout two o'clock noxt aftornoon
Miss Jennie Forbush might havo boon

seen, walking along tho samo highway,
and bound to the same house aB be
