JOHN JOSEPH GAINES. M,D,
SPEAKING OF TEETH
' 1 doubt if anyone- ever fully ap
preciates1 'his or her teeth quite so
.much as when they have just been
all extracted by the dentist. When
the victim struggles through the
agonizing days, trying to 'break in
a set of artificial teeth, he remem
bers what a treasure he has lost in
his natural teeth; if .it were to do
over again, he'd treat those native
molars and incisors with a great
deal more of respect than he did
when he had them, v.
The modern advice as to care of
the teetli is plenty voluminous; the
ether-wave sizzles with the bray of
the charlatan. The hawker merci
lessly besets you with his 'sugar
coated nostrum, and wise colunin-
. -ists hand you theories, sophistries
and "isms." Those and many more.
Why should ! add my bit ? Well,
common sense at this time may. not
be amiss. ' '
There is no 'law on (iod's gree(u
earth that requires the obedience as
to how. often you should see your
dentist, or how often a man or
child should apply' a nostrum to
any part of the, mouth, gums, teeth
or .throat. Just the simple, Well
known admonition: Be clean, alert
against, any hamuli practiceand
consult your-. dentist-, at the first
symptom of rebellion in the dental
region. There is no minimum or
maximum on your visits to the
tooth doctor; ga when you need
his 'services, : be it one, none, or
twenty times a year. 1
Continual and senseless scrubbing
of the teeth is highly capable of
doing grave harm; many a case of
pyorrhea has been set up iby the
use of septic tooth brushes; the1
enamel of your teeth was riot put
there as a field for exploitation by
the swarm of nostrum-vendors that
infest the land. Nature gave' us
about all we need in fifod-elenrents
for keeping the teeth clean. Look
for them and use them and don't
believe everything you bear.
KiAnK PARKER MtC ti.
A familiar old specter is begin
ning to haunt most of us again.
We used to know him so well that
,. we called him by his initials, "J I.
C L." which stand for High Cost
of Living., I saw some statistics the
other day which, show that in the
past four years, since the Spring of
iyoo, ioou costs io uie consume
have gone up 40 per cent, men's
clothing has risen more than 20
per cent and rents are up nearly
25 per cent.
Nobodv would kick much if
wages and salaries were' going tip
in the same proportion, but they're
not. Few of us have as 'much left
after paying for the necessities of
.life as we had a year ago. No
wonder that workers in every line
of industry are demanding higher
pay. That won't do them much
good, though, if higher pay results
, in still higher prices. ,
PROFITS .... .in volume
Most business men find it hard
to learn that they can earn larger
profits by selling goods at lower
prices than 'by trying to keep
prices up. That is true in retailing
as well as. in manufacturing. Auto
mobile makers discovered long ago
that they could pay top wages,' im
prove their cars from year to year,
.and still keep on reducing prices.
It's all a matter of volume. ,

LUMBER . ..... ... haul
A lot of what we pay for most
things is the cost of getting goods
into our hands. 1 ran into an illus
tration pf the size of this big coun
try of 'ours and the distances goods
have to travel, the other day when
i wanted some clear lumber to put
up a . few shelves in my house.
There wasn't a board to be had in
any lumber 'yard in the neighbor
hood. "All good . Lumber comes from
the Pacific Coast," one dealer ex
plained. "It conies by Water, and
the shipping strike has stopped all
shipments for .months. Fve got a
consignment coining by rail,. 'but it
will cost you more."
It did. The railroad rate for the
3,(XK) mile haul iut the price of
lumber at Atlantic ports up nearly
a half. Instead of, $7 a hundred
ieet 1 had to pay $10. I don't
wonder that so many substitutes
for lumber arc 'coming into use.
STAMPS . . . . . . . value
When 1 was a boy I began to
collect postage stamps. Fifty years
ago it was a simpler and less ex
pensive hobby than it is today. 1
wish I had kept that stamp collec
tion of the 18X0's, for 1 had 'some
items which are so rare nowadays i
that collectors li:ivr i:iiil tlir
of dollars for their like.
I have a friend who cashed in on
his knowledge of stamp values only
a week or two ago. He had been
in correspondence with a high of
ficial of the government of Afghan
istan. He found hhnself short of
money in Washington, where he
knew nobody whom he could ask to
cash a check. lie had to get back
to New York.
He had with him his lalesl letter
from Afghanistan. He telephoned
the stamp editor of a Washington
paper and asked for the name of
the most reliable stamp dealer. He
took his Afghanistan, letter to the
dealer, . who offered him $10 for
the envelope and stamp I That paid

My friends who .make it their
business to know what is going on
under the surface of world affairs
are telling me that the civil war in
Spain is just the beginning of an
other general'-European war, in
vyhich Italy and Ccnnany will be
lined up together, with Russia ' on
the other side, and France '.and
Circat Britain trying to keep out,
but probably both getting into it.
I don't sec how this country is
likely to be directly involved, but
Mich a war certainly would do us
no good in the long run. It would
upset the economic equilibrium of
the world, though for a while it

It has never occurred before in auto
mobile history that 25 million cars of
one make, bearing one name- have
been manufactured under one man
agement. The 25,000,000th Ford car
rolled off the Ford Rouge Plant pro
duction line on January 18, 1937.
25 million cars since 1903 . . . more
than one-third of all ' the cars ever
hujlt . . . enough cars to transport the
entire population of the United States.
The figures represent a remarkable
contribution to the social welfare, the
industrial stability and the general
progress of our country
People respect Ford efficiency. They
know Ford uses fine materials, the
best workmanship at good wages, the
most exact precision measurements.
They know these things are passed
along to purchasers in the form of
extra value. Naturally, they like to
do business with such a company,
That is the only reason it has been .
required to produce 25 million cars.
Naturally, too, they expect
more of a Ford car, more this
year than last year -more
each year than the year before. They
have every right to. The experience
gained in building 25,000,000 cars en
ables Ford to produce today a really
superb motorcar at a really lqw price
with the Beauty, Comfort, Safety
and Performance of much more ex
pensive cars. I ,
