We wonder why dentists are so dishonest. They will make the
most ridculous claims and assertions and expect the people to
believe them. For example, they are now squawking about
ebony plates. Now let us give you a little information on the
plate proposition. To commence with there is no such thing as
an ebony plate. The plate made of black rubber can he called
ebony plate or black plate or anything that one wants to call it,
but when you get down to facts, it's just a plain $4.50 per pound
rubber plate. The teeth (14) used in a plate cost, say 11.00, the
rubber, gas and plaster 50 cents. That makes the material cost

dentist one whole day to do the work. Of course, we do not *

HIS WIFE'S BACK TO

(By United Press Leased Wire.)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 12.—Because a certain eminent statesman
dropped his eyeglasses down the decollete gown of a young navy
matron, and because an admiral of national renown, through absent
mindedness, picked up B truant curl of gray hair, thinking it his
pocket handkerchief, Washington society is vastly amused today.
One of the Btories going the rounds over the teacups is that
, the statesman referred to was adjusting his pince nez to his
aquiline uose when they slipped from his fingers down milady's j
The statesman, in consternation, sought out the lady's husband
and explained the catastrophe. The husband, without thought and
before a number of prominent men and women—for the incident
occurred at the army and navy reception—plunged his hand down
his wife's back and fished out the glasses.
The lady shrieked, a small riot followed, and it is said that the
husband still is attempting to explain.
Tlie other incident also occurred at the same reception. A
white haired Washington grande dame, through accident or careless
ness, lost several puffs and curls from her elaborate coiffure in the
course of the evening's dancing. While the lady's friends were attempt
ing to adjust the putt's and curls, one of them fell to the floor. At
that instant a near sighted admiral, famous in the land, happened
along. Espying the fluffy object on the floor and thinking it his
pocket handkerchief, he stooped, caught it up in a white dressing
glove and to the horror of the ladies, placed it in his pocket and

The Spokanites were the "big
