off their shoes and stockings and

waters of the brook. '
She acquiesced, but once near

commit the deliberate, cold

his wife, none knows, and War
ren himself; has never talked of
the crime, since he confessed
and pleaded guilty at the time 'of
-his arrest. - 1
Warren's plea of guilty and
his attorney's earnest plea for a
seconddegree sentence saved his
life and he was sentenced to

anything! I would give a hun
dred dollars each if those seven
teen old snags were back: in mv
head and I could cram that first
set of teeth down that Ran
Francisco dentist's throat so far
that he could never coax another
old man to have a set of false
teeth. J. C.
: The editor can give four ad
dresses of persons using . false
teeth who insist that they are a
perfect success. The G.-T. edi
torial was written at the sugges
tion of , a man 65 years of age
who long - went without teeth and
finally got the store kind. to his
intense satisfaction. The writer
was associated in business with
this man for seven year's, and
one of his frequent requests was
that ' the old people, with faces
full of snags that fail to hit be
urged to go to a dentist. The
Writer's step-mother has used
store teeth twenty years without
dimculty. . The above article
read in this office this morning
brought forth this statement
from a young lady: "Tell him
my mother has had an upper set
tor 29 years and a lower set for
five and has nothing but praise
