Den ists' Assistants Look at Life In a
Phil sophteal Way.
Of a 1 the occupations that are open to
young women, from attending a counter
in a cry goods store to manipulating a
typewriter in a banker's office, ft is diffi
cult to conceive of one that, at the first
blush is less attractive than being an at
tendant in n dentist's office, and yet no
dentist, as a well known BMtttber ot the
profession told me the other day. can ad
vertise for an assistant without receiving
anywh re from 1 to 300 answers.
have never passed through a hallway,
from w hicli opened one of t hese modern
chambers of t he Inquiit ion and heard the
groans of some poor victim in the dentist's
chair vt ithout a desire to stop my ears with
my riiu.-ers and fly. Can one imagine any
thing v orse than to Ix compelled to put in
eight or ten hours a day in tluse torture
shops. ( BMMftg the nans, sating odor of the
ether ami with the spectacle id I he terrified
and dis orted features of suffering human
ity constantly before 0001 eyed Never
theless, if you will notice the dentist's as
sistant he is usually a well dressed, hap
py faetd, contented and. on the whole,
stylish young woman, who goes to her
work in the morning as cheerfully as girls
Wet go to their work, and who win n oven
!ng conies is as ready for the theater, the
ilance.i.id the youun man us anv other
If it vero a fact, as it is not. that the
majority of these girls like t hese posit ions,
with th. purpose of ultimately setting up
in business Cor themselves, as giris who
uudcrgi the disagreeable scenes in hos
pitals 1 ope to do by becoming trained
nurses, t he rush for employment in den
tists' o'tices would le mom readily ex
plained. The truth K girls take these positions
just as they take all others that offer,
simply 1 ecausc they must do something
for self rapport. The number of woman
dentists in the citycan be counted on one's
fingers, and not all of these have by any
means g adiwted from the position of "as
sistants. ' It really doesn't appear to lie a
professii n in which women as a rule have
any desi e to enter. There ha been but
one lema le graduate from a dental college
in this sate, and she, though chartning
in face aid I'.gure, has. I fancy, a rather
uncomm inly independent way of liniking
at thing, in general.
The sa .tries received by girls who Basjst
indeutis s' offices range from il ve to fifteen
dollars p r week, and the duties vary with
th e price paid for services. The girls are
expected to keep the offices in order, the
instruments cleaned and to administer the
gas in most cast's. They receive the pa
tients an 1 make appointments for the den
tist when he is busy, keep the books and
hold themselves ready to hand the dentist
whatevei he may require when at work on
a patient's tOOth Do they like it? Well,
I have interviewed a number, and the ver
dict is t tat "it's not bad when you get
used to it." The presence of a young
woman ia one of these places of torture
seems topatoourageintothefaint hearted.
A woman naturally looks to otic of her own
sex for te ideniess and sympathy when she
is in paiti. and as for t he men well, you
know, "When a man's afraid a beautiful
maid is a cheering sight to see."
One thing I discovered in the course of
my Investigation, and that is that the
pretty g rls in dentists" shops are very
much lis. susceptible to the blandishment's
of men than girls in subordinate positions
anywhen else. ".Men are such cowards,"
was the v ay a petite blond explained this
fact to m , "and I can never see a dandy
on the stieet all smiles ami smirks for each
girl who passes by wit hout sa Ing to my
self, 'How differently you'd look at me
now, my line fellow, if you were seated
in a cert tin bi red velvet armchair 1
know of.' I will do nun the justice, how
ever, of stiyiug that they invariably behave
with more bravery in our presence than
they do when alooe with the doctor."
At a fashionable west su. dentist's the
young "h dy assistant" told me that she
hail accep ed the position because of con
stant disc niragement in linding more con
genial en. ploy meiit. "And now," she ad
ded, "Tin beginning to like it. I like to
see men suffer, because I have known so
many heartaches. It does me good to
watch the n walk in here with agony writ
ten on their faces. I'm only son y when
thetortur; is all over, and they go away
free from pain." Fancy such a speech
from a delicate girl: What do you sup
pose has s. nt such bitter thoughts into her
graceful little bead?
Another young woman on the west side
said that she liked ber position ltecanse the
parlors were "nice and homelike to spend
the day in much nicer than any store."
As she sp ike she idly turned the leevea of
a novel shi had been reading. This voonir
lady confe end that she ran out of t iie room
the lirst ti ne she saw a tooth extracted,
but now si e minded it !io more than the
doctor. You've no idea," she added
naively, "1 ow easy it is to get used to paiu
when it's s itnebody else's pain."
A girl s it before an open piano as I
entered the parlor of a dentist on the east
side. S.:e Ma playing a new waltz for the
edification of n young man w ho was await
ing his tur 1 in the dentist's chair. He had
come to bnven tooth filled and the girl,
finding hiii a poor conversationist, was
killing tint for him in the interim.
I left her still smiling sweetly at the un
happy yoti b when 1 withdrew. A mes
senger lxjy preceded me into an np town
dental offic and the pretty young assistant
came Turwi rd to relieve him of a bunch of
roses. "Do I like my position:-1 Why
shouldn't I? Smell these:" and she
brushed the fragrant roses under my nose.
"I get lots of these little attentions from
our patient .. Besides, the salary I receive
is large cm ugh to brighten the disagree
able part of the work. And, after nil,
what's the use '. being uervous over other
people's pu;n. Anyway, if a girl's got to
earn her o vn living she might as well
work in a hysiciau's or dentist's office as
to be in the office of some gloomy old bank
er or cranky publisher. I've tried al!
three, and 1 ke my present place the best.'

afflicted was again tormented like Job. ami I
bought a little (on Sunday at than and
again a cure. I gaesomcof the medicine to
a poor woman and two children; they wers
helped as were mine. Through a testimo

from al! the country, asking if it was a 'bona
