THE TIMES: EK1JJAY, A1AKU11 5, 1920
HOT METAL EXPLOSION.
Bridseporters thought that an
earthquake or some other catas
trophe had arrived about 8 o'clock
last night, when hot metal dumped
into the river by the American Tube
fe Stamping Co. caused an explosion
which Jarred the entire city.
Buildffigs were well shaken, and
plaster was knocked from the walls
of some structures near the scene of
the explosion. Residents in the im
mediate vicinity of the works have
registered vigorous complaints about
this annoying practice of the Stamp
ing Co. Last night's- blast was onl'y
one of many which have occurred.
The middlemen no doubt charge
too much, and if so a lot of the smart
talkers should be able to get rich by
providing the same service for a good
deal less money.

FINE MUSIC IS
If music could always 'be musically
good and still, in varying degrees
even, within the reach and enjoyment
of practically all people, there would
be gain and pleasure -both of which
are sometimes missed. The Chautau
qua program this year seems to ap
proximate in a rather exceptional way
to this legitimate, and varied interest,
through its musical features.
Tuesday, March 16th, will open with
a concert by the Boston Male Quintet
in the afternoon, at which Elsie Mae
Gordon, a reader of dialect pieces, will
be heard. The men of the quintet are
soloists of reputation and their work
together is remarkably fine as well as
popular. They are heard in a fuller
program Tuesday evening.
The second chief day of music will
be Friday, the 19h. Both afternoon
and evening Sergei Adamsky, the
young Russian tenor, will sing oper
atic numbers and Russian, Spanish
and other folk songs; Harriet Case,
Lyric soprano, of New York, a young
singer of peculiarly charming person
ality and style as well as the possessor
of a clear, limpid voice, will be heard;
and with these, Anna Eichhorn, vio
linist, and Edna Sheppard, piano so
loist and accompanist.

Yankee Dentist Discovers Reason For Fast Failing Eyesight to Be Infected Tooth.
From Thursday's Issue of the Bridgeport Telegram.
cally Blind, Has
Trtp to America
Removal Brings About Gradual Restoration of Eyesight. Read This Editorial Taken
From a local paper Thrsday. March 4th, 1920.
Viscounl Grey, one of England's greatest statesmen, was
practically stone blind on his recent visit to America. Now
the reports say that his sight is almost completely restored.
An American dentist did it.
While in Washington the British ambassador had a
toothache and the toothache turned out to be singularly lor
tunate, for 1 tic Yankee dentist who examined the Viscount's
mouth discovered a large abscess at the root of the infected
tooth. Removal of this abscess, so the story runs, has
brought about a gradual restoration of Viscount Grey's sight.
Recently a well known dentist of Bridgeport told the
Rotary club something about the wonderful advances in
dentistry. More and more the dental profession and the
medical profession are working together, as it is coming to
better understood that many baffling ailments have their in
ception in bad teeth.
Rheumatism, that bugbear of our forefathers, may arise
from bad teeth. What connection can there be between an
excruciating pain in your shoulder blade, or your knee, and
your teeth? Simply this: Had teeth manufacture poison.
This poison is carried by the blood to variousp arts of the
body until iff inds lodgment and sets up housekeeping in the
weak and exposed places.
Good teeth and good health are almost synonymous
terms. How seldom you find the one without the other!
Bridgeport has reason to lie proud of the fact that she is
the first city in the world to realize the intimate relationship
of tee- and health, and to instil in her public schools a sys
tem of dental education, inspection and hygiene that will
give to the future generations in this city the finest teeth
The man whose teeth were ruined by neglect in child
hood will never get them back. The good dentist today does
n't aim to repair teetii. lit aims to save them, to keep them
beyond need of repair. And his motto is '"Get them young."
The Bridgeport idea in the care of teeth is a product of
the genius, enthusiasm, and personal effort of a Bridgeport
dentist, who is one of the nation's foremost authorities on
dental work. Other cities even other nations are sending
delegations to Bridgeport to see how we do it, but when we
show our teeth to them the gesture is a friendly one.
And a pleasant one to look at, thanks to the above doc
In Thursday's issue of The Telegram
this article appeared! And this is
not the first instance where the cause
of GOOD TEETH has been made a
health stand by a Bridgeport news
paper. Recently the Bridgeport
Times printed a story showing how
the dental clinic of one of the New
Jersey State Hospitals had practically
restored the mental powers of '289
supposedly insane people of that state
in 1919 by dental extractions. The
press of the country is repeatedly
taking up many columns of white
space to call the attention of the pub
lic to the importance of "keeping teeth
in good condition.
The Bridgeport Telegram says:

DR. BELL S VERDICT
The following is taken from an article appearmg recent
ly in the "Journal of the American Medical Association"
quoting Dr. George Foster Bell, attending surgeon of the
New York Eye and Ear Infirmary.
The three T's are as indispensable to physical diagnosis
as are the three R's to rudimentarv education. And the three
T's as selected by Dr. Bell are THE TEETH, .the tonsils and
toxemia or intestinal poisoning. But the most important of
these three the one that Dr. Bell lays the greatest stress on,
is THE TEETH. He states that an examination on the
teeth should include (1) inspection of the mouth (2) Ex
amination of the gums and (3) X-Ray of all teeth, dead
or alive, pivots, arches and bridges.
Dr. Bell tells of two very interesting cases to illustrate
the relation between mouth infection and eyesight. The first
was a clinic patient with inflammation of the iris in each
eye, which gave severe pain. He was sent to the hospital
for treatment, and while there, 14 badly decayed teeth were
removed. The patient's recovery was so rapid that in four
weeks he left the hospital. He gained 14 pounds in weight
at the end of nine weeks, and regained normal sight in both
The other case was that of a man complaing of failing
vision in his right eye. His tonsils had been removed, but
his mouth was in bad condition with inflamed gums and a
gum boil, while an X-Ray of his teeth showed an old root
and an abscess around two upper teeth. This examination
was made in 1917. His mouth was put in absolutely sanitary
condition, and in one year he had improved so much that the
vision in .his right eye was normal.
Dr. Bell makes a plea to "get right" on the dental ques
tion. He further states that errors of diet and condition of
the teeth are also responsible for much toxemia of the intes
