Washington, March 28. The right of

upheld today by the Investigation com

The committee's action Is sweeping.
It not only adopted the "res Judicata"

all the conditions Just mentioned hare

good order. It la time for the dentist
to most carefully remove the slightest
deposits of any kind which may still
be present around any teeth, especial

take care of the mouth in a manner
protecting both health and teeth. It,
unfortunately, a plate must be worn.
It must be cleansed Just as carefully

will otherwise form on It, too. A
plate should never be worn while one
sleeps. During that time It should
bathe In water with a teaspoonful ot
borax or baking soda In it. or In the
mouth wash used for natural teeth.
The time at which It Is most neces
sary to cleanse the mouth Is at bed
time. If one sleeps with a mouth In
which remnants of food are decom
posing, and this begins a short time
after eating, the mouth being quiet
during sleep, the cheeks and the
tongue not rubbing the gums and
teeth, and the saliva not flowing to
give them the bath Intended by na
ture, germs do their worst because
they are not disturbed. Therefore, If
you cannot clean your moutr more

night bed time cleansing will certain

more frequent cleansings are needed.
Next to the bed time cleansing, the
most important one Is In the morn
ing after breakfast. This enables us
to avoid the decomposition of food
remnants in the mouth going on lor
a whole day; germs multiplying mors

really no reason why any one could

they leave their home In the morning.

Axlds Formed by Decomposing Food
Dissolve Teeth Like Sugar Dis
solves In Lemonade.
When food decays In the mouth
acids are formed which eat into the
teeth. They dissolve that tooth Just
like sugar will be dissolved in lemon
ade, only not so quickly. For a long
time it will not hurt much. If any.
Maybe it will hurt a little some day
when you take a drink of cold water
but it does not ache. But the acid
keeps on eating sway at the tooth and
the hoVe keeps on getting bigger and
bigger, until one day that tooth Just
aches like everything. And that Is
the way teeth decay.
Now, I am going to ask yon one
question. When the week's washing
is all ready to be put away, mother
picks up your stockings and runs her
hand way down inside to the toe.
Sometimes she finds a little hole
there. When she does find a hole,
what does she do? (A voice, "She
mends it.") That Is right! She mends
ft Now, If mother misses that little
hole and you put on those stockings
again and wear them that little hole
becomes a big hole and the next time
mother sees it she says, "Ob, my!
wish I had found that and mended it
while it was little for it has been get
ting bigger and bigger and now It will
take a good deal longer to mend.'
Well, that is Just the way it Is with
these boles the acid makes In your
teeth. They Just keep on getting big
ger and bigger, tt Is much easier and
better to mend them when they are
little holes than to wait until they
become big ones.
Now, here is something I want yon
to think about. I have told yon the
Totting or decay of your teeth comes
from the rotting or decay of the food
left about the necks of the teeth and
In between them. Since that Is so,
dont you think It would be better to
try and get rid of that food before tt
decays? I do! If you do not get rid
Of It but Just leave it there, after
while you will have little holes la your
teeth and they will grow larger and
larger, like the hole In your stocking,
until they get so large you will have
a toothache. And we agree that no
body wants a toothache.
The southwestern storm has advanc

The Historian Had His Own Way of
Forcing Himself to Work.
Rollo Ogden In his biography of Wil
liam H. Prescott. the historian, cites
many passages from the diary show
ing Prescott's habit of flogging him
self to his work by making wagers
with his secretaries that he would
complete a given task by a certain
day, the odds always heavily against
"Prescott always took this betting
on his own industry with perfect se
riousness. Sometimes he would radi
antly greet his secretary with: 'You
have lost You owe me a dollar.' And
he would exact payment Occasional
ly he would, with woebegone counte
nance, produce and pay over to the
protesting secretary the $20 or (30 be
himself had lost" One elaborately
made memorandum witnesses that a
bet of SI to $50 had been made "be
tween E. B. Otis and William H. Pres
cott Esq., the latter betting $50 that
he will write 100 pages of his History
of Peru In 100 days."
The document Is 6lgned William H.
Prescott and Edmund B. Otis, but the
latter subjoins the following: "1 prom

Fillings which have rough or over
