Jones can’t stop pulling tieth even when he goes on a fishing trip, is tlie opinion of iiiemhers of a fish ing party who went into the mountains west of here to catch trout the latter jiart of last week. The local dentist was cast ing for trout with a bass hook and one of the largest trout lie (Ver saw (it got away) struck with vim. When the third strike failed to hold the trout he says he decided to jerk on the next cast and dill so with the result that he pull ed all the trout’s teeth, along with a large portion of Its jaw hone. Needless to say that Dr. .Tones took little pride in get ting the fish’s teeth on his hook for he considers that the job was by no means a pain- legs extraction. The other members of the fishing party were W. D. Half- acre, W. E. Jones and R. E. Walters.
