In order to secure full records in tho treasurer's and auditor's office, the highway department directed all out- Rid funds to be eent to the stite .treasurer. Mr. Karhart, in xhanginjr the custom of the previous treasurer In paylnsr claims only to the amount of funds on hand rather than the amount of the appropriation, has made a deficit In numerous accounts, while in nthr ormMiitd noma million and a half dollars are available and in banks drawing 5 per cent interest. The state treasurer has taken fed eral funds and county bond funds ar used them to reduce tne aliference between the funds on hand and the appropriations, according to th state Mghway department. The department claims that its contracts with various highway commissions by which it la spending county bond lHsues Is an In dependent state road tax fund and hould not be used to reimburse funds to correct the difference between the manner of doing business of the pres ent and past state treasurer. The highway department is also of the opinion that the .-"eral jrovern ment will not permit federal funds to be used to adjust theRe differences and road costs to bo paid by state war rants, which If at a discount would mean that the federal government would not t a dollar's worth of work for each dollar for federal aid.

Punch, London. o Women pass tests In examinations for motor drivers' licenses with a higher average than men. In a recent conference between the highway commission and .representa tives of tho Southern Pacific regard ing the $8 rate on cement from River side, Cal., the railroad men said that they were helpless In the hands of the interstate commerce commission which had ordered the 25 per cent Increase above the old $6.40 rate. They said, however, that there would be another conference, but no hope was held out that the rate could be reduced. The commission, therefore, will have to pay the rate on shipments pay ments on which have been held up and on all that will be required for the carrying out of the present con tract within the sum that remains of the proceeds of the first bond Issue. But the statement was made, without explanation, that not a penny of the $1,500,000 voted on December 31 would tc spent in freight on cement at this rate or a rate nearly approaching it. Some light, however, was thrown upon this statement by gome remarks made by Commissioner Carrick at a meeting at Glendale night befort last when tho subject of street paving was taken up. Mr. Carrick is a resident of Glendale and it was in that capacity that he attended the meeting.

There was an Inclina tion at the meeting not to rive much consideration to the representatives of the black roads until Mr. Carries, ad dressing the meeting, paid that a time had come, and circumstances had arisen, which required that some thought had to be given to costs.

According to the complaint, which alleges that the matter in dispute is HEALTH AND YOUR TEETH A great many peo ple do not know that the condition of their general health de pends a great deal upon the well-being of their teeth, but such is the fact. And the majority of physicians recommend that a patient's teeth be put in good shape where the condition indicated by the diagnosis shows that such treatment of the teeth would contribute to the general health of the patient Certain it Is that a great many aches and pains which are attributed by the patient to other causes may be traced directly to a diseased condition of the teeth and gums. This is true because of the close relation ship of the nerves in certain areas, which cause sympathetic action and distress that can only be traced to the teeth by careful examination. We are very glad at all times to make a thorough examination in all such cases, giv ing the patient a complete statement of the exact condition of the teeth and gums. DOCTORS B. C. SMATHERS and H. B.
