The deformities of the face, caused
by the habit of mouth breathing, can
be corrected by proper treatment In
the case of a boy who was plaoed un
der the care of a dentist at the age ot
four, wonderful results have been
shown. A year later the shape of his
face was considerably altered, and by
the eighth year It was practically nor
mal. When- treatment for such de
facts 1 delayed until the age of 12 or
later the results are not so satisfac
tory. But even at this age some Im
provement may be effected although
It will not be bo marked as that shown
in the four-year-old boy. The main les
son is that the mouth-breathing habit
should be prevented in babyhood and
the necessity for such corrective treat
ment later wculd then be avoided.
When small children have anything
the matter with their teeth It used to
be common to say, "It makes little dif
ference, those are Just the baby
teeth; and we pulled out the baby
teeth instead of filling and taking care
of them. The reason why that is bad,
and why parents who are careful with
their children do not allow it, is that
every tooth pulled out of a baby's Jaw
results In a lessening development of
the Jaw, affording less room for the
permanent teeth when they come.
Every baby tooth should be kept until
it Is replaced by the larger and more
firmly built adult tooth. The full con
tour of the teeth should be preserved,
for Just to the extent that It la not
preserved does the Jaw tend to atro

Springfield, 111., April 9 The distri

How did the world do its business
before the publication of directories?
The huge directory of London had a
first printed forerunner In a slim Uttle
volume, "A Collection of the Names of
the Merchants Living In and Around
the City of London," Issued by Sam
uel Lee of Lombard street In 1677. It
was the outcome most probably of the
enterprise of Henry Robinson, a well
known writer on commercial matters,
who in 1650 opened an office in Thread
needle street, where were kept "par
ticular registers of all manner of ad
dresses" for the use of all who cared
to pay a sixpence. London Chronicle.
