What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

liÉPÈ — » - VOLUME XII WISDOM, MONTANA, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1923 NUMBER 1 Tel! ’Em About Teeth ‘‘Tell the public!” That is what Dr, Mustard, health officer of Pres ton county, Va,, wants to do. Re­ cently the Preston county health de­ partment announced that the chll dren of the county were short on six-year molars and the editor of the Preston County Journal dropped around to the health officer to find out what a six-year molar is. This is how he tells the story : When we ashed the deeter about molars he plunged into a corner and emerged with a diagram of the teeth of a six-year-old child. \The six-year molar«,” he said, \are the first permanent teeth a child gets. You, like most parents — and some dentists— probably think that ‘firsts’ applies only to the milk teeth. This is incorrect. \Look at this diagram. Start ai the space between the middle teeth and count backward. The first five teeth are temporary; the sixth is the first of the permanent teeth; it is called the sixth-year molar because It comes at about six years of age Note that there rare four of these, one on either side of the lower Jaw and two Just above them in the up per Jaw ' Didn’t know that tooth was per manent, did you? Lots of people don't Persons who don't know think it is a temporary tooth and lei it decay liut It isn't temporary! It don't lake the place of any temporu ry tooth, nor does any other tooth ever take its place When it goes it goes forever \ Well,’' we asked, ' won't it be stronger than the temporary teeth and last .longer?” 'It may, or it may not,” answered the doctor. \It's a large tooth, but its upper surface has a lot of pock ets which Invite decay unless the tooth is kept clean and the child is fed properly.\ ''Property fed1” we exclaimed Exactly,\ replied the doctor ' Children can't groy up as they should unless they are properly fed Their bones, including their teeth, will be chalky, and chalky teeth de­ cay very quickly Moreover, six-yeai molars come Just when the tempora­ ry teeth aie decaying Rot In teeth spreads like rot In barrels of apples and the molars, particularly If they are chalky, stand no more chance In a mouth full of rotten teeth than a snowball in— In July. ' Some of them are allowed to de­ cay along with the temporary teeth and others are pulled by parents or by officious neighbors because ‘ they are only milk teeth.' ” Dr. Mustard was waxing Indignant. We were Indignant, too! “How can we help?” we asked “The pub­ lic ought to know about this and we want to do our share.” ‘ Use your paper!” cried the doe- tor, enthusiastically. “ Tell ’em once, tell ’em twice, tell ’em over and over again! Tell each mother to examine her child’s mouth and count back to the sixth tooth. Tell 'em If tt's de­ cayed to hurry that child to the den tist Tell ’em. that oce gone a six- year molar Is gone forever; and that these molars are all as important to the mouth ae a keystone is to an arch. Tell 'em not to allow six-year molars to be pulled, even if they are decayed, unless the dentist insists— and be mighty butb he is a real den­ tist!” So we are telito’ them— that Is yon!— Preston Cottnty(V&.) Journal It so happens that Mrs Hathaway, nee Elizabeth Bullock R. N., was as­ sociated with Dr. Mustard when he commanded the sanitary camp at Hassle Shoals during the W orld war.

An automobllist with a shovel had just completed the fixing of a particular­ ly bad spot in tbe road It proved to be Chas. M Nelmau. the new su­ perintendent o f the Plains schools, who had also been spending the day- up Thompson river and had takeu along a shovel in his car He has set an example that might well be emulated, and The Plainsman take- particular pleasure lu givlug public lty to such good deeds.— Plalusman Mr. Neiman'g policy should be the policy of all of us. Trouble Is these days, we are all so fearful ef doing a good turn unless there is Burned! ate prospect of ten-fold return. Such acts as recorded above would pul our highways lu such shape that the money squandered by county com mlssionera would make a showing This paper has frequently advocated the placing of split lug drags at con venient points along the highway for automoblllst8 to drag the road with Just after rains, but the proposition is met with a sneer It Is done iu some sections of the country, where there Is true community spirit, and the result ts: Good roads at small ex­ pense. When Jones come« to town he stops a minute or two and ties the drag to his car, pull» it a couple of miles or so and leaves it for Smith to pick up when he comes In. Re­ turning home the operation Is re pealed, with the result that several miles of road are made exceptionally good wlhout the expendture of a dol­ lar Man s Inhumanity to mau” ap­ plies here.

Ü A m-4 t u e t t t t t Thursday forenoon of last w«ek ye editor mounted one of Ranger Vo­ gelsang’s horses and in company with the genial superintendent of the Steel creek forest reserve made the tortuous ascent to Mount Odell eight miles beyond and 3,but) feet above the ranger station. Ordinarily one of our age and av­ oirdupois would have sense, enough la kfitqx .off a-bursa's-banki espeewrf-ly when he had not ridden one tor sev­ eral years, but we lacked the acumen as It were, yet we enjoyed every foot of the ascent. Twaa a winding trail through the tall pines whose aroma tilled the nostrils with a soothing which seemed to permeate the entire i.ystem. Hidden from view as one climbs up and up he hears the rush of sparkling waters as they team over steep uud rocky beds on their way to the murmuring streams In tbe valleys below. As one approaches the summit of the range and the tapering pines are replaced by the twisted and gnarled Alpine type of timber lie seems to feel the presence of the Almighty We were fortunate in that the winds were still on the summit, for Mr Vo­ gelsang says it U seldom that quiet reigns up there After a view of the surrounding peaks and a telephonic conversation wtth a fire guard lu the Elkhorn ills trlct we walked to the rim of the peak and gazed down upon the lim­ pid waters of Lake Odell whose smooth, glassy surface mirrored the surroundtug hills with their wealth of tlmhber The descent from this point seemed rather too much for ye scribe, although the ranger said the other route was little If any better from the viewpoint of a tenderfoot — and he was preeminently correct We managed to stay with our mount hut the front side of our anatomy felt as If It had been groomed with a wire brush On the way down we passed Monte Clinton's mining claim and peered Into the depths of the tunnel at the ledge of ore there exposed and ate our lunch In the shade of his cabin at the foot of the mountain On the return trip v,e viewed the upper part of the Marten mine, a property lo­ cated years ago by the late Mr Fran­ cis, father of our Fred and Charley arid which lacks only capital and transportation facilities to become a real producer and saw the herds of sleek and lazy cattle reposing on the Stewart meadows jvhere George George Stewart once cut the hay for bis stuck In the pioneer days of this country Arrived safe at the ranger station we made no objection to our host do­ ing all the work In connection with preparing supper— didn't eu.-n offer to wipe the dishes for him in the first place, we were all in, and, sec­ ondly, everything is so immaculately neat around this bachelor's hall that It seemed a desecration for us to at­ tempt assistance Bill is eligible, all right, but once a young woman sees the interior of the Steel creek ranger staton she hacks away in holy hor* ro of the consequences should she at­ tempt to keep house fur him We are very much in the frame of mind expressed by the young mother who when complimented upon the appearance of her two-year-o!d son said: ' I wouldn't take a million dol­ lars for him, but at the same time I wouldn't give a dime with a hole in it for another just like him.\ That to to gay, it was a wonderful trip bat we do not care to take it again for a few days at least. PRETTY HOME WEDDING Wednesday evening of last week th« Spokane ranch home was the seen« of gaiety when Miss Helen, the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs A O Onsercd, became the bride o f Dr. Donald Atoslie Patotter. the Reverend Dr. Berner to Seattle perefmring the beantifsl ceremony to the Swedish Lutheran church.
