ThP size of the tooth brush, as well ,s its shape, is a matter of personal opinion. It would he reasnoable to use n large brush for a large month, and a small brush for a small mouth. Tti>' bristles should be of medium stig De- sand good quality. There must of course, he a dentifrice: this may be any good tootli powder or paste, ^or merely clean soap. A good powder, however, is preferable to any other dentifrice. One of the main tilings is to brush the margins of the gums. Silk floss for cleansing between the teeth is a splendid aid. During the lust eight years of school dental clinics in Cincinnati, the fob lowing tooth brush drill has been worked out and is used successfully to reach children how to clean their teeth: Attention hold brush up in right hand at the height of tlie shoulder, in front of child.

Not all of them, because thous ands fell on the fields of battle in the suprme '’acrifice for freedom. With proud, unfaltering step they bore the colors of their country’s flag, in whose i gentle and caressing folds they were | tenderly laid to rest, when death kissed j away the pain and suffering of machine gun fire. For those who dodged the draft or deserted the colors there lives a lasting contempt in the memory of Americans. Some of them are in hiding now—while others have paid the great penalty. But there is one particular individual coward who merits an especial word of condemnation, and the name of that sneaking, smiling slacker is Grover C. Bergdoll, who escaped, to Germany and is today laughing in his silken sleeve at the puny efforts being put forth to get him hack into this country for trial. When we sent two of our men “many to get him, they were prompuj •*- *“'1 aod olaced in prison, where they were .. remain for quite a while. Bergdoll’s money makes liim a big mau in Germany, but by all the rules and regulations of military discipline, he ought to be brought hack here for trial at once. We understand perfectly well that the authorities at Washington can act on the matter with out any suggestion from the Prescott Daily Picayune, but that doesn’t pre vent our saying, that the delay and procrastination in the Bergdoll case, has aroused the American legion to the point of demand, for the immediate re turn of this millionaire slacker, who is being housed in a German palace, while others of less prominence are pay ing the price of their disobedience to America’s Call. -o MAKES OPINION OF LEGIS LATURE ENTIRELY CLEAR. Salt Lake City. April <>.—Declaring that the recent Utah legislature, which passed the anti-cigarette law, was a "damn fool legislature.” and advising the American Legion as a body to keep out of politics, the Rev. , Dr. Elmer I Goshen, Congregational; minister, addressed a local post of the legion last night and assailed prohi bition as a contributory cause of the crime wave. ‘'The saloons were hell holes and prohibition is a hell hole," said Dr. Goshen. "There was a wave <r£ righteousness abroad in the land while you pernicious young men were over | seas, and we passed prohibition in your absence and right now there are 5,000 stills in Salt Lake, to say nothing of i the home brewers. "This is no freedom. It brings us j perilously close to a nation of hypo j crites. Prohibition, as a result of the war. is responsible i nlarge measure j for both the record-breaking crime wave of 1020 and many of the labor distu rba nces.”—Gazette. -o SI IT AGAINST GKO. BROWN DISMISSED. The civil suit of Nancy and Ben Baker against Geo. Brown was yes terday dismissed in the circuit court at Washington, at cost of the plaintiff. Brown was first arrested and tried for robbery of the Baker home. He was sentenced to a term in the pen and was out on a $2,000 cash bond, de posited with Sheriff Steele, pending his appeal to the supreme court. The supreme court remanded the case, for re trial In (he meantime the Bakers brought suit for damages against Brown and garnisheed the $2. 000 held by Sheriff Steele, put up bv Brown ns a cash bond. The dismissal of the civil action yesterday at Washington, released the money held by Sheriff Steele who turn ed it back to Brown. Brown will be tried again for the alleged robbery of the Bakers in the Lafayette circuit court next term. -o SKIT RE YOUR LICENSE. The Circuit Clerks office has just re ceived a new supply of game and fish ing licenses.
