A aril (o tlie Public.
I have just received a lot of first
class teeth, (not second handed artifi
cial teeth.) which will enable me now to
make an upper or lower full set of
teeth for seven dollars and fifty cents,
or a full set for fifteen dollars (guar
anteed for years). Where plates are
wanted teeth will be extracted without
charge. I have .practiced dentistry
here in our city for over twenty years,
anu my aim win oe in tne luture as in
the past to give working men an op
portunity to enjoy artificial teeth if
needed. Many good receipts have
come into my possession during the
above time. All other work in den
tistry will be performed with great
care at reasonable charges. I mean
what I say. Particular attention will
be given to extracting teeth as pain
lessly as possible. Give me a trial.

Hon. A. M. Dockery, representative
in Congress from the Third Congres-
sional district of Missouri, spoke fb
the !)eoplo Saturday night at the court
bouse in this city. The court room
was well filled, and after being intro
duced to theaudience by Congressman
Var.aiver, the speaker of the evening
talked for a little over an hour and a
half. Mr. Dockery is a rather enter
taining speaker but he is hardly so
eloquent as many had besa led to be
lieve. His address was an appeal to
Republicans to join the free silver
ranks, and lie urged the Democrats to
go to the polls on November 8th and
bo sure to send his friend Vandiver
back to Congress. The sjwaker got
off the usual taffy about being re
joiced to meet the jteople of this beau
tiful city, and then branched off into
political themes. He said the nine
teenth century had been ushered iu by
the election of a Democratic president,
(Jefferson), and that the twentieth
would be ushered in by the triumph
ant election of William Jennings
Bryan. It will be renumbered :!.:.:
tliere was this same confidence ex
pressed by the Democrats in IWti, but
somehow a cog slipped and things did
not pan out according to the program.
Mr. Dockery said the Democrats must
accomplish present needs if they hoped
to win in l!iiH, that disaster this year
would make the battle much harder in
l'.k'O. He wanted to appeal especially
v thfc Republicans and desired to ti'v
something to . reduce the bcas'.iy TV
publican majority in this county, Tlie
speaker then launched out On tlie
money question and for about three
quarters of an hour thrashed over old
-ii .iv. and repented the same argu
merits, the fafiacy of which has been
shown repeatedly. A numb - of U..
p.ibiican i.-itizens were present mid as
th'2 old bogy of supply and demand
wa ne.u up ;u tne view ol tne au
dience and twisted around in all sort
of fat-i.istic shaiies. those memiiers ;f
tiie g. o. p. merely smiled at er.ch
other and winked the other eye. The
au-'.w nee was treated to the usual dis
sertation on the crime of ".11 and ref
erence was made to tho great wrong
done the jieople when silver had been
demonetized by hostile legislation.
Silver had then lostitspowerasinoney
and had never boen rehabilitate!-;.
But in the n-xt breath Mr. Dockcry
was honest enough to t.-l! his hearers
that our silver dollar was still ".orth
a hundred ivnts not only in the United
states, but m the huropean centers of
trade. This is the way silver has been
ucmoncuzcu even according to tne
fiim silver people. Rut it is painful
to pursue the subject fin ther. and it
would lie almost impossible to jioir.t
out all the inaccuracies and inconsis
tencies in this sp-t-ch in a short rews
paiier article. It may Ik- stated, how.
