Children and the Care of Teeth.
It is saidthat school children
,hibit a deplorable lack of in
rest in the matter of taking
are of their teeth. A great deal
f the lack of health of the peo
le of the country is due to the
ict that the teeth are not given
roper attention. The dentists
f South Carolina have taken this
atter up, as is shown in a letter
o The State from Dr. E. N.
Eibler of Prosperity, correspond
g secretary of the State Dental
Dr. Kibler says in his letter:
It may be of interest to the
iatrons, teachbers and children of
he school of the state to know

6ssociation at its last meeting at
Yhite Stone Lithia Springs. July

"The dentists so plainly ob
erved the carelessness and lack
if attention give to children's
eeth-the first or gans of good
igestion that contribute towards
aaking a healthy and apt mind.
"We are living in an age of
aicro-organism, and our patients

aittee will soon issue a circular
