N. B Whenever a Dentist speaks against
Allen's Patent Continuous Gum Teeth, when

Exi-iTma Rack ?Tuesday afternoon an ex.
citing foot race came off between one of W
M Judd's clerks and a young girl about 14
years oil. The girl had the start, bat was
burdened with u piece of giij^ham, which
gave the boy the advantage. The girl, per
ceiving this, threw the goods into the gangway
adjoining Aaron Clapp s store, and brought
the contestants upon a more equal footing
The boy cow made a desperate effirt and
gained rapidly upon the girl, overtaking her
in Pratt street, lie politely beggel the privi
lege of escorting her back to the starting
place ; and although she said No?he sup
posing that, like many an other maiden, "No'
meant "Yes"?took her at ber word and es
corted her back He then very ungallantly
set for officer Nott, who led the girl to Squire
Mann's office, aft?r whieb the mother c?mc
and all parties left to settle the matter, if
possible, without public exposure; and thit
is the reason we say nothing about the etccur
rcnce.
Another exciting race occurred about the
same time between two Irish girls and a clerk
in J H Hubbard's store The stake was a
package of whalebone The girls were soon
overtaken and esoortad back to the store, but
were released in consideration of the very
great temptation on beholding the much c ivc
ted whalebone?Hartfird C<mrunt.
